Author has written 20 stories for Harry Potter, Mechwarrior/Battletech, Olympus Has Fallen, RWBY, Worm, X-overs, SEAL Team, A song of Ice and Fire, and KanColle.

2 December 2017

Last December I said I was writing again. So, this December I think I'll start posting again.


...Or, how Hermione: Pureblood Traditions was a one shot. I originally described it as 'a short story in two parts' because it featured two distinct scenes, not because it had multiple chapters. So, I went through and changed that description, and now I've added a second story to follow on. Maybe next year I'll come out with a third.

Alchemist's Quest: This multi-book rewrite mostly began because for 'the Greatest Dark Lord', Voldemort never really managed to accomplish much. That he ripped his soul into more pieces than any other says more about him than what he actually did (not that it makes a difference to those he killed to do so). Unfortunately, I didn't really do a good job plotting out the first book so things are no longer where they need them, so I'm still looking at a rewrite of my rewrite.

Someone to Love: A lot of people have pm'd, emailed, etc. me about this one. There are, two issues. First, I was really angry and really depressed and basically just venting. There was no plotting involved, and took over a 100k words to describe one week. I need to figure out where this is going, and whether I can keep the same tone going without the emotions that originally drove it.

BattleTech. Book II is mostly done.

RWBY: (great, he started another one). So, I was experimenting with PoV and tenses using RWBY as a base and it sort of...grew.

Publishing...schedule is probably going too far. Let's call it a wishlist.

Dec 6-8: RWBY trailer 1, trailer 2, Chapter 1

Dec 15: Reposts of Ghosts II, plus first new chapter.

Fridays thereafter will alternate RWBY and Ghosts, with one chapter of each posted on the 24th

Posting will (hopefully) continue through end of the book (Ghosts) or volume 1 (RWBY)

"I don't know what else to tell you, Dragon," Armsmaster frowned. "It sounds like you have exhausted all the potential avenues your employment with the Protectorate, Guild, and PRT make possible."

From the Future, Hindsight reviews
Salem wants humanity (and faunus) dead. Ozpin wants to return the favor. But certain universal truths remain. People behave in unexpected ways. When someone faces an imposed existential crisis, they often try to return the favor. What you don't see isn't nearly as lethal as what you don't understand. Enough gravity Dust can tear apart a planet...or give someone a second chance.

Zugswang, White to Move reviews
Chess, a game so often a metaphor for life. Fortunately Harry always lost the game but and not at life. Or maybe Voldemort was never much of a chess player. Sooner or later he was going to find a Dark Witch who played, and maybe she would decide the only thing better than a victory for Black was Zugswang, where there were no good moves for White. Your move, Harry.

One of the first things Asher learned after becoming President was that the expression 'One of those days' had a very different meaning in the Oval Office. Following closely on this lesson was that, when those days happened, he could rely on Mike Banning.
