Here's a running summary of my writing projects.

Book of Diamonds
Quite possibly my life’s work. On hold for now until I grow up a little; in-progress and likely will be for some time. A retroactive divination of a story all know but is hardly told; a pseudoscriptural cartography of the legacy of pain as inscribed upon all our sectors of the world. Half poetry, half theory, half narrative.

[Currently in a phase of heavy revisions, please wait warmly.]

The Palace Perspective
A culmination of seven years of obsession over Revolutionary Girl Utena. An attempt to critically define the nature and goals of Ohtori as a structure, focusing on Nanami Kiryuu’s place within the archetypal mechanism of power. Utena is one of the most diamondist works in existence, and I’ve taken ample inspiration of it – this is in part an attempt to explain just what I’ve found so compelling about it.

Czarine: First Vision
A just-begun, ambitious Idolmaster fanfiction, covering the first year of producer Maya Miraflores’ employment at 765 Productions. Based loosely on the SP storyline and many lesser-known imas manga, it centers on Iori’s debut and journey through the Idol Ultimate competition, as well as Haruka and Hibiki’s relationship as it moves from antagonism to friendship – and perhaps something more – during the rise and fall of Project Fairy.

Cryptoromance Series
CW for like... everything. These are unkind reads. An in-development series of seven works on the shorter side, beginning with Black Ships and ending with The City of Matalion. The first section was put on the BoD Wordpress as a standalone work, was since taken down for editing, and I'm now in the process of fleshing out the wider concept. A more artsy and personal project after the formalism of BoD and analysis of Palace Perspective, on the same subject.
