every dead project is a stepping stone to a finished one

I suppose that, after making an announcement about changes to a website, I should actually follow through and deploy them, huh?

New short story: irradiate.space/stories/telepo

This is the story of a guy going about his job, doing what's needed and necessary in accordance with regulations.

Bless Hussie. His troll relationship concepts have given me the words to describe what happens in Char's Counterattack. With auspistice Lalah dead, the ashen romance between Char and Amuro deepens to a pitch-black kismesissitude, and with their relationship, so too does the state of the Earth Sphere.

Here's the latest stage of my thoughts on in : irradiate.space/worldbuilding/

Still incomplete, but with a better grasp of where I am in the process, and what's next.

I sat down to try to draw some conclusions from my research on in , and, well, there's still a lot of stuff to research. I'm at a point where I need to either read or watch the original Mobile Suit Gundam, as well as rewatch half a dozen other things, just to fill in the gaps.

I thought I was farther.
Blar.

While brushing my teeth the other day, I figured out how to publish the X-rated version of the Magical Youth Particle Zoo (working title for setting) story without putting it on a site that family members are likely to innocently stumble across, like if I published it on irradiate.space

The solution is to post it to AO3 as fanfiction of my own story.

And since I'm crossposting Tumblr stuff here, have a post about a for a shared architecture of the Imperial spaceship fleet and space station construction, as depicted in Ann Leckie's Ancillary trilogy:

A quick post about interstellar tradertongues, or the sort of conlangs that are built to facilitate communication when the only things agreed upon are fundamental constants, physical reality, and math: irradiate-space.tumblr.com/pos

The sequel to the Gay Fanfiction Problem: writing about a single person who goes by 'they' interacting with a group

when i die i want my obituary to list all the domain names i controlled and for how long

Look at this article about a minor character in a TV show. I've seen shorter articles for entire TV shows.

Does anyone have recommendations for a good print-on-demand service for a 200-something-page paperback?

I was previously looking at Ka-Blam, but their website is pretty clunky and prone to frustrating bugs

I’ve heard good things about Mixam, but I don’t think they do paperbacks of this size, and their hardcover options are way too expensive

Writing ideas, weird alien gender politics 

Story idea I’m workshopping: a princess of some weird space polity in self-imposed exile, who was born as (some other gender) but was considered female in her capacity as royalty; she turned out to actually *be* a trans girl, but has some tension between “gender euphoria” and “dredging up bad associations”
