I'd probably be best served by more than one profile update a year, but in my case, it's hard to say if it's warranted. Many of the same projects I was working on last October are still ongoing, thankfully, with maybe or or two exceptions (which I'll just quietly push aside for the time being). Even I can learn, it would seem, though you'd think I'd either learn more, or write more, on my so-called "sabbatical" since my office closed at the community college I was working at. Sadly, no so much the case.
My flagship story remains Soldier of OZ: Walker's Account, long transliterated title Shin Kido Senki Gundam W: OZ-hei - Kiroku no Walker (新機動戦記ガンダムW: OZ兵 - 記録のワーカー). I'm still writing on it, though I've increasingly fallen behind deadlines (which for such a ridiculously long project is troubling), even though from feedback it does seem I've managed to maintain the quality of the past, or even improve upon it. I'm still making periodic correction to past chapters (which are noted at the end of each chapter typically), a reminder of how many years ago I started this elaborate remake. I'm around volume ten of the new manga, and episode 26 to 27 of the new series, which means while I still have a not unsubstantial ways to go (even before Endless Waltz), I'm at least more than halfway through the complete plotline. Hurray!
The sequel to one of my more read stories, The Immortal Empire, continues onward, easier to write but getting a lot less of my attention than the aforementioned work (at least Outlaw Star isn't too hard to write with). As promised, Aisha Clan-Clan is featuring prominently in it, and I've remained fairly consistent to the existing story structure.
And yes, I still want to do that Tenchi Universe Galaxy Police story, featuring best characters Mihoshi Kuramitsu and Kiyone Makibi and their comrades in the G.P., that I Was waxing about wistfully the last time I updated this profile. At the very least, bouncing ideas of the walls with other fans of the TV series, I was able to figure out where and how to begin the story, but whether it's just the fact that I've never done a story in that series, or just pre-story jitters, I'm finding it a lot harder to start. Except a fairly noticeable update to this profile should I ever properly begin the story. More tricky writing comes in Knowing You Exist, the official sequel to Remarkable Behaviors that features the Puma Sisters Anna and Uni in their (early) criminal careers. I'm not getting much feedback which can make writing tricky, but I've had bigger problems to deal with.
Soldier of OZ: Walker's Account (Gundam Wing) - A reasonably serious retelling of the series through the perspective of a particular OZ mobile suit pilot and his comrades, with an added effort to both historically explain the circumstances leading up to the series better alongside some heavy technical/logistical examination of mobile suit warfare in the After Colony period. A very large, accordingly military-related cast rounds that out. We're now comfortably in the second half of the television series (and presumably the new manga, if I can actually get my hands on it) with the arrival of the 'Treize Faction' and where the Gundam pilots themselves are pushed somewhat into the background however briefly.
The Immortal Empire (Outlaw Star) - Oh, O.S., the cult commercial flop anime that became a huge hit with North American audiences (and possibly inspired a few major plot points in the likes of a certain unfinished Joss Whedon sci-fi/western television series). Why can't I quit you? I've begun what ought to function as a direct sequel to Alan Chandrasekhar's completed story but, more importantly, will actually feature the central characters of the anime (alongside previously introduced original characters). The begins two years after her initial meeting with Gene and Jim, when Aisha Clan-Clan is recalled to her homeland at the behest of the Ctarl-Ctarl Empress, and the crew of the Outlaw Star refuses to take that sitting down. At the very least, it'll be written in a more ordered, structure matter than A Terran in the Ctarl-Ctarl Empire was, and might even wrap up a few of the unfinished questions that story left behind. Expect some pirates, Tao magic, caster shells, and a lot of high-level Ctarl-Ctarl national politics, but perhaps most importantly, it will inevitable have a very different tone, if only because it moves from following a miserable and possibly crazy old man to a somewhat-less-miserable 20-year-old Aisha.
Knowing You Exist (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex; New Dominion) - The sequel to the Remarkable Behaviors, it follows the Puma sisters on their ongoing career transformation from robo-prostitutes to thieves and hired guns, along with a decent amount of world-building to flesh out more gaps between the Dominion TV series and manga, and Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex. Perhaps somewhat unusually for me, I do plan to set some of it in the United States and North America before the sisters make their way to Kansai.
Finished things you should look at:
Remarkable Behaviors (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex; New Dominion) - The origin story of the two gun-totting synthetic twin sisters, Anna and Uni Puma, before becoming the muscle of Buaku's gang as it terrorized Niihama. A major part of that is taking the shared world of the manga (both sisters appear briefly in the Ghost in the Shell manga), and extended that to the anime (the New Dominion OVA and Stand Alone Complex TV series respectively), as well as filling in the gaps of the nuclear Third World War that ultimately split the United States and the rise of the "Japanese miracle." Should eventually have a sequel that brings it up towards an actual Stand Alone Complex prequel.
Space Battleship Yamato 2199: The Silver First Minister (UCHUU SEN-KAN YAAAAA-MAAAA-TOOOOU...2199) - So, I really like the new Space Battleship Yamato 2199 remake/homage series, like, a whole lot. The cultural significance of the original series to that first post-war generation in Japan, and the truly bizarre American and European adaptations of the 1974 series, just make me appreciate it more (frankly, they don't help how much it's aged either). Its predictability aside, 2199 feels like it does every single thing I'd want a remake to do (Star Trek and Star Wars, take note?). The movie The Odyssey of the Celestial Ark (or one of the four other names I've heard for it) is more of the same, a neat little side-story. So an 2199 story from me was probably inevitable. The fact that I chose to write it about a character specific to the film, indeed one who only appears in two scenes (the Prime Minister of the White Comet Empire, Sifar Sabera) is probably just classic me. But I had fun, I like how it turned out (even if it's not something likely to be read much), and it makes me think that more 2199 stories will be coming in the future, eventually. Of course, the next season of the show is likely to focus on the White Comet Empire and promptly invalidate the entire story.
A Terran in the Ctarl Ctarl Empire and Observations on the Ctarl-Ctarl Empire (Outlaw Star) - So, people (at least people who read and write) really like Outlaw Star. Or, at least, they like fanfiction of it (and will settle for my muddled, disorganized thoughts as I regurgitate them whenever I think of something that seems even vaguely interesting or somehow relevant). Ideally, The Immortal Empire should not require reading either of these things, and I do intend to include some notes at the end of each chapter to address any questions that might come up, canonical or non-canonical, but people seemed to like those stories, somehow, so they may be worth mentioning (especially when the character Alan Chandrasekhar is inevitably brought up). To be totally honest, Observations is not by any means complete--I put it here because of how closely it's related to Terran, and the fact that honestly I can't think of anything to write about it until someone goes to the effect of, "Hey, what do the Ctarl-Ctarl think of ," and I suddenly churn out a couple hundred words. And I actually enjoy doing that, but in the meantime, until the questions come in from one source or another, an update seems unlikely.
I also have some Star Wars stuff that, while fun to write, mostly serves to remind me what a giant mess writing anything in that universe immediately strikes me as, especially with the first of approximately nine-hundred new films and associated series due before the end of the year. Check it out if you like to read someone playing "head canon" games for the sake of being contrarian or at least trying to make some sense out of the real insanity that is classic Star Wars.
