Love Is Criminal
Love Is Criminal contains four short stories in two pairs. The first two stories follow the matriarch of a cult who adopts a baby that was left in front of their house. The second two star a pair of criminals, lovers, and idiots getting themselves into trouble and getting out of it. More
The first two stories are dark fantasy with a much slower pace and a sense of mystique. In "Newest Member", a worn down house in the middle of a thick forest is home for a cult that isolates itself from the rest of the world. It's matriarch, Vivian, finds a baby on the house's doorstep and argues with a member whether or not it should stay. Several years later in "The Outside", the baby has grown and plays with a doll that she tries to play with. The next two stories are lighthearted and more about the back and forth interactions between the two main characters. "Clothes Shopping" stars Aaron and Sabrina, two criminals pulling off a simple heist that quickly goes wrong. "Black Friday" has them in the middle of a shooting scare and attempting to escape with their lives.
