Here is your handy-dandy quick reference to What Mel And Christy Are Up To, writing-wise, in the hopes that it will save our time and yours when you want to know what's up, what's next, are we going to revive X fic, are we making progress, blah blah blah. Please note:

**NAGGING WILL GET YOU NOWHERE.** In fact, nagging is counterproductive: Mel's writing juices positively dry up when she's faced with "write more write faster want want want", and then even Christy with a cattle prod can't keep things going.

Questions about progress on any of the fics listed here will be either ignored, or answered with something very brief along the lines of "check the sticky". Polite questions about anything not listed here by name will get polite answers. Rude questions about anything at all will get a Gundam despatched to stomp your house flat.

*updated 17 November 2014, about 2pm.*

State of the Mel: Directing minions!
State of the Christy: Busy!

State of the Website: Back up at a new provider! http://tormenthouse.org

State of the Other Websites: Since the collapse of the old House of Torment site, we've started putting our work up elsewhere. It'll take a while, but we'll eventually have full archives on Fanfiction.net and AO3.

State of the Writing:

- Hijacked by the plunnyjam!
--- Nurarihyon no Mago fic, Celadon: Up to Chapter 1.
--- Bleach sillyfic, Fight or Foreplay: Up to Chapter 6.
--- GW/Honorverse crossover: Up to Chapter 2.
--- GW/Bleach crossover, Bankai Wing: "Duo and Wufei and Heero and Nemu and Still Ghosts, Oh My" has been posted! Go read it!
--- Log Horizon fic, Respec: Chapter 2 is in progress, about 2/3 done!
Normal service will resume as soon as we can unjam our brains.

- Demon of Justice: Up to Chapter 43.
- Warped Mirrors: Up to Chapter 28.
- Alarums and Excursions: Up to Chapter 14.
- Rebuilding: Paused. We plan to resume it once DoJ is either completed, or at a point where switching between it and Rebuilding doesn't require a full brain reset.
- Viri & Hath: Part 2 started and percolating in Mel's brain. Part 5(?) already written and waiting for its turn.
- Everything Else: Hiding from the bunnies in the back of our heads. Progress is possible but not planned at this time.

WELP. Life goes on and health goes up and down and IVF still doesn't do the trick... damnit... and work demands attention, and what with one thing and another even if stuff gets written I flake on posting it! Aaaaaand then my computer dies. D'you know how much fun it is, posting from my phone? It is not fun. That is what it is.

I am sorry. Please don't blame Christy. It's not her fault. :P

(........also there's a WoW expansion. OMG. To quote Norcumi, "Those fools! They gave you MINIONS!" XD)

...okay, this was actually written and ready to be posted about two weeks ago, and I COMPLETELY FLAKED on doing it. Uh. I blame... stuff. Life stuff. Including the fact that Christy and I just spent five days in another city, three of 'em attending a convention (having fun and buying way too many anime t-shirts). ;)

Bankai Wing: Heero and Nemu and Ghosts, Oh My )

Once again, the bunnies have changed their minds mid-chew, so you're getting some more of this one. ;P


Bankai Wing: Sally and Hollows and Nemu, Oh My )

We got some good writing in today! (Er, yesterday now, it's past 1am... time flies when I'm playing World of Warcraft. :P) We finished this, which we already had about half done, and charged on to write Part 4 of 'Fight or Foreplay', a bit of silliness that you will find in the post before this one. Whee!


Bankai Wing: Lions and Tigers and Hollows, Oh My )

(Argh! Too big for LJ, I've had to break this into two parts...)

This is kind of a prologue to the main story, and MAN did we have fun writing it! XD Set in a slightly AU version of Gundam Wing where the war lasts longer and Endless Waltz never happens; it's five hundred years in the future of Bleach and draws from that canon up until the Lost Substitute Shinigami arc, though we've changed a few things - the Visored never rejoined the Thirteen Squads in this fic, though they are on reasonably good terms with their old allies.


I think it's fair to assume that practically everyone who reads our fic already understands all the Gundam Wing references. :P Therefore, here is a handy-dandy guide to the Bleach characters and references we've included:


We're using Japanese name order for the Bleach characters, but translating titles instead of having "Soutaichou" and "Taichou" and so on pop up fifty-bazillion times (unlike in 'Fight or Foreplay', where it doesn't come up nearly as often). Bleach fans will note that the captains' lineup is different, due to five hundred years passing and the Visored not returning to their old squads.

Ukitake Juushirou - Captain of the 1st squad, overall Captain-General of the Thirteen Squads.
Kuchiki Rukia - Vice-Captain of the 1st squad, adopted younger sister of Byakuya, good friend of Renji and Ichigo.
Soi Fon - Captain of the 2nd squad and leader of the Onmitsukidou.
Abarai Renji - Captain of the 5th squad.
Rikichi - Vice-Captain of the 5th squad.
Zabimaru - Renji's zanpakutou; in his 'inner world', it takes the form of a huge white baboon (Saru) with a snake for a tail (Hebi).
Kuchiki Byakuya - Captain of the 6th squad.
Komamura Sajin - Captain of the 7th squad, he is an anthropomorphic wolf.
Hitsugaya Toushirou - Captain of the 10th squad, he looks like a teenager despite being several hundred years old.
Zaraki Kenpachi - Captain of the 11th squad.
Kurotsuchi Mayuri - Captain of the 12th squad. SERIOUSLY CREEPY.
Kurosaki Ichigo - Captain of the 13th squad.
Grimmjow - a very powerful Arrancar, sort-of friends with Ichigo.
Shirosaki - Ichigo's 'inner Hollow'; his name is a pun on Ichigo's surname 'Kurosaki' and the fact that he has pure white skin and hair. ('Kuro' = 'black', 'shiro' = 'white')

Shinigami - Not Duo. :P Spirits who guide ghosts into Soul Society and fight Hollows.
Zanpakutou - 'Soul-Cutter Sword'; a Shinigami's sword, part of his/her soul. Zanpakutou have names and separate personalities.
Seireitai - The 'Court of Pure Souls'; where Shinigami live in Soul Society.
Senkaimon - A dimensional gate between the living world and Soul Society, used by Shinigami.
Reiatsu - Spiritual power/pressure.
Kidou - 'Demon Arts'; spells, either for attack, defence, or forms of binding.
Onmitsukidou - the Secret Tactics Force.
Onmitsu - Spies/Ninja.
Visored - Shinigami who have gained Hollow powers.
Plus - An ordinary Human ghost that hasn't yet crossed into the afterlife. They generally appear as they did at death, with a broken chain dangling from a plate attached to their chest over the heart.
Hollow - Plusses that are attacked by other Hollows or didn't pass on into the afterlife soon enough turn into Hollows. They are monsters with white skull-like masks and eat human spirits; the more powerful ones eat other Hollows, or try to prey on Shinigami.
Menos - A composite Hollow. When a Hollow gets too strong for human souls to sustain it and starts eating other Hollows, it will be attracted to other cannibal Hollows and they will try to eat each other, blending into a Gillian. If one of the Hollows within a Gillian is strong enough to dominate the others, it can evolve into an Adjuchas.
Arrancar - A powerful Hollow (usually an Adjuchas) that has removed part of its mask, becoming more like a Shinigami and gaining power by doing so.


And here is the fic! :D
