Hello, world. This is Jiang-Shanghan from China. I'm a fiction writer. I enjoy writing and reading.
Most of my fan-fictions're based on anime and video games. Just check out my works below if you're interested. I'm looking forward to your comments on my works.

English is not my first language. I hope this introduction will not be too perplexing. Thanks for your read.

Elegant assonance is great and all, but sometimes you just gotta write "sporadically-burbling geysers"

Section 3 of 4 is up! (change of plans, just felt like I had a good chunk of it and it’s been a while.) In which we encounter many alien flora and more frustrated AI feelings.

Hey all, good to be here. I'm a career programmer, but I've been writing on the side for a couple years.

Lately I've been working on a post-apocalyptic Sci-Fi comedy, which is a thinly-veiled way to tell some of the bizarre stories I've experienced as a contractor, in a meaningful and hopefully non-litigable way.

In my spare time I enjoy reading and metalworking.

Ask me anything! I probably won't answer in a satisfying way, but you're welcome to try!

A new sub-chapter chunk is here! In which we see how each crew member is (or isn't) doing well, plus some strange behavior from Alexandria...

One of my favorite parts of writing a holographic AI character is using frame rate drops as an emotive detail, like how Cornel MASON's limp acts up whenever he's stressed

The chapter is FINISHED! Kuiper meets a new friend and gains some new perspective.

I'd like to print some physical copies of Mission Critical once it's done - are there any good, reputable publishers that don't automatically reject anything that's been freely published online, or would it be best to just do it myself with a service like Ka-Blam?

Chunk 3 out of (probably) 4 is here! Kuiper's bad decisions finally culminate, and we get a firsthand look at Martian dysfunction.

there are three acceptable options for adapting Mission Critical (or Parhelion) into a show/movie:

1. a very stripped-down, evocative version that jettisons pretty much all of the worldbuilding to be a haunting meditation on the central themes (like the movie of Under the Skin)

2. A SyFy Original Series, absolutely faithful, with a budget of negative ten dollars

3. Anime

I hope to eventually dig down into how the social model of disability works with living on the Moon

*Everyone* has a sleep disorder and problems with muscular atrophy, but they're well-known Things with plenty of cultural support and leeway, so they're not really thought of as "disabilities"

Another chunk of it is up! Kuiper doubles down on bad decisions.
