Still working on this, but the first draft is up! It's an Armitage III fansite where I'm attempting to a) gather together everything of interest about the series that's ever been put online, and a few things that haven't; and b) write, and host, interesting meta.

I've got two meta pieces up already: A Feminist Reading of Armitage III and Under the Skin: Deconstructing Sensuality and Sexuality in Armitage III. I'm particularly proud of the first one, in terms of how it dissects both the failure of Armitage III's "feminist" government and how many this-world activist movements continue to perpetrate oppression and abuse.

(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.
monsterboy: A Final Fantasy Behemoth, looking nervous and puppy-like. (behemoth - nervous)
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 [ 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.

Just a little fanmix I put together for the (recently-wrapped-up) main scenario of the Espera RP-- aka "the War of the Magi-era FFVI prequel game", if you weren't aware of it.

Mostly putting this here so I can link to it on Tumblr, but feel free to have at it if the relationship between summoners and summons is something that interests you, since that's mostly what it's about.
