Season Notes: violence Benj Benj took midwatch. It was quiet, had been quiet all night. He wasn’t surprised — they hadn’t left anyone alive behind them, not even the drone. And they’d paid for the motel with cash, so there was no trail. It left Benj a bit more confident than he should have been….

Mighty Hero Force Epsilon (S2, E2)
Season Notes: violence, self harm mention, magical coersion mention He woke slowly, his head pounding. He didn’t bother pretending to still be asleep. Opening his eyes, he saw a far too familiar ceiling. Reflexively, he rolled off his pallet to kneel on the floor. “Welcome back, Lieutenant,” said the hateful voice. “I’m impressed. I was…
The Last Lady of Luna (S2, E3)– Early Access
Season Notes: violence Nastasia When I was able to stop crying finally, I washed my face with cold water and put on the best confident smile I could. I stepped back into the overcrowded motel room and pretended not to see the concern on everyone’s faces. “Sorry I took so long. I know you all…
Mighty Hero Force Epsilon (S2, E1) Take Two
Season Notes: violence A strange group of people huddled together in a darkened park. Each wore a distinct costume, too different to be called a uniform but clearly meant to be part of a set. Each had their face obscured by a helmet, dark glasses, or in one case, magic. And they all stared at…
The Last Lady of Luna (S2, E2) — Early Access
Season content notes: violence, blood Karen Karen could have spent hours examining Nastasia’s sharps. Instead, she had a few minutes in the back of a van. It was a decent collection. Small and mostly K-bar, like Nastasia had said. Karen approved. There was a false bottom in the knife case. Curious, Karen pulled it up…
Mighty Hero Force Epsilon, Season 2 Cover (Take two)
Sometimes, a magical team can’t catch a break. Mighty Hero Force Epsilon (they didn’t pick the name) thought they had gotten lucky. They thought they had found a mentor, someone who had the experience to teach them what they didn’t know. They thought they had a safe headquarters and a chance to really start fighting…
Sorry for the Silence
health shit, blah blah blah.
Chronic thing has gotten worsts, gettnig tests and shit done to determine treatment. I’m grumpy about it.
Some radical changes to life and schedule, I’m a lot less functional but prioritizing writing (for y’all, but also for my mental health. I need my fiction friends.)
I’m not going to get even getting anything out Friday, instead I’m going to put whatever energy I have for writing into next week and hopefully now that I have a new schedule and some extra support I’ll be able to get writing stuff back on track.
If I’m still having trouble next week, then I may just put the serials on hold for a month. Kids’ school is out June 9th, and that’ll free up a fair bit of time/energy, even if my health shit hasn’t improved.
Eitherway, I’ll keep you in the loop.
I did get a small amount of writing done. I got hit with a story dream, which is where most of my best ideas come from.
I woke up and immediately wrote down as much as I couldn’t so I wouldn’t forget it all. Then I threw the rough notes on up Tumblr, where you can check them out if you want.
Epic fantasy with Jewish characters, background isekai, political bullshit, mentally ill characters, mother/daughter team in WAY over their head, and other stuff I haven’t figured out yet.
A stranded world traveller is forced to put her young daughter on the throne to keep her family from being swept up and destroyed in the wake of a failed invasion/coup attempt. While she fights for control and survival in the imperial burearucracy, her daughter is waging her own battle to control her destiny. (2 siblings, one an infant) and her lost husband, the rightful heir, is fighting his way across a hundred leagues of war torn countryside to get back to them before it is too late.
Tentative plans to add it to the serial rotation next year.
The Bargain (S3 Finale) — Early Access
We’ve come to the end of the season. Don’t worry, as currently planned, there are two more seasons. Plenty of time for Jahlene and Mattin to get themselves out of (and in to) more trouble. Next week we’ll pick up with season 2 of Mighty Hero Force Epsilon, and see how our erstwhile sentai team…
The Last Lady of Lună (S2, E1)
On Substack I’d make half of the first post available to everyone, with a ‘pay for more’ cut half way through. Can’t do that here. Trying something different: Cover goes out publicly, first post goes to everyone with a membership, after that paid memberships only until I ‘unlock’ the post in six weeks. Nastasia I…
The Bargain (S3, E10) Early Access
Season Content notes: con noncon*, pain play, sexual contact, trauma reactions, people handling emotions badly, rape (not explicit), torture (not explicit), pony play, mind fuck (minor), privileged ally is privileged, confronting abuser/assailant Jahlene’s discussion with Collanne soon bore fruit. The next day, she left Mattin in the suite and presented herself to the Emperor and…
