...so, wow. Two years and one long hiatus later, and here it is… 40,000 words of hallucinatory, mind-meldy, body-horror madness, with occasional funky typography. And lesbians! Badass 80s lesbians.

I don’t know what to say… it’s been a ride. Still not quite ready for this to be over. But there’s so much possibility in where this leaves off that you can bet I’ll be writing more in this version of the universe.

(If the Explicit tag bothers you, it’s only applicable for one chapter. On the other hand, if you’re looking for the smut… it’s in chapter 15. It’s not as big of a deal as all that, though. There’ll probably be longer smut for this scenario later. :P)

Oh, and if you come across any HTML glitches, typos or obvious fails, let me know?

UPDATES.

(Sorry, I might be a little excited that I finally got this out the door.)

How She Has Burned is finished! 13,000 words all in. Lots of robotfeels dissection, questionable morality, and all that good stuff.

I'm also working on the immediate sequel (as in, the two can be read back-to-back with no gap at all), workingly titled Is God A Machine? Workingly, because long plotty stories always meander wildly for me and never end up going in the direction I planned, so I'm not even sure if the title will be relevant by the end. 4,300 words down so far.

I'm pretty happy with these fics at the moment: I'm enjoying taking a lot of the questions that got superficially asked in the series (and get superficially asked in cyberpunk in general), and delving into their consequences more thoroughly.

Oh, and point of interest: writing this series is making me extremely happy that I watched the dub so often as a teen. There's a lot I dislike about dubs, sure, but one of the advantages-- for me anyway-- to having them is that I get the characters' speech patterns down in my head a lot more easily. As a result, I feel this is one of my few fics where I succeeded in making everyone speak like themselves. I don't think I'd be as good at keeping minor characters like Randolph consistent if I didn't have such a strong mental image (mental sound? mental .wav file?) of how he talks.

Okay, so I guess I've got enough of this down now to release it into the wild. I don't really like advertising unfinished fics in case performance anxiety makes me stall, but at the same time this is long, and provoking a lot of Intense Writer Feels in the process, and basically I'd like people to know what I'm working on.

So here you go, if you're curious: How She Has Burned, my Armitage III fic in progress. (You can also find the rest of my fics, or at least a subset, at [archiveofourown.org profile] execharmonious, FTR.)

10203 words so far, lots of machine empathy, species issues, religious and moral dithering, and generally the things that characterise my work. Oh, but since it's Armitage, also lots of bloodshed, swearing, death, and dancing on the brink of the Moral Event Horizon in little tap shoes, if those things bother you.

I'm not sure how well it stands alone, independent of the show: a lot of references and people are taken for granted. If you're planning to watch the series, you might want to do that first.
