Idea #78: Rambling about Girls Und Panzer, worldbuilding, and fanworks · 6:43am January 16th

Rambling about GuP worldbuilding, plots

Spoilers ahead

The main premise of Girls Und Panzer is both its greatest assest, and also its heaviest chain. For those who don't know, the anime tells the story of a high school sport for girls consisting of tank on tank combat. Somehow, nobody dies.

Random Idea #76: Magic Fortress Rewrite, aka MF2 or ctf_apploosa · 6:32am Dec 2nd, 2021

I've been dissatisfied with how I wrote the first version for a while. Way, way too serious. It was a common issue whenever I took a look at TF2's fanfic scene, something it seems very few have been able to capture the humor of the comics, yet I tried to do the same anyways.

Surprise, update. Turns out being very bored at work is one form of motivation. For the first time in 6 years, I have finally advanced into new territory.

Woooo.

The dead march further into Sombra's territory.

Chapters 24 through 27 have been updated. We are now finally (slowly) advancing into the Sombra arc.

Also, I wrote a finale of sorts to Agatha's story, if you're interested in knowing how it all ends (in my head, anyways)

Idea #75: Thesis on the flexibility of G4 · 1:51am Nov 3rd, 2021

Hey, I’m an Engineer. That means I solve problems. Not problems like “Why is Monarchy?”, because that would fall under the purview of Ideology. No, I’m all about worldbuilding

Random Idea #74: (non)Combustion Civilization · 5:31am Sep 28th, 2021

This thought was spawned from comments across the internet about just how much of a technological boost the utilization of fossil fuels for industry gave to humanity. As much as it sucks long term environmentally (carbon, smog, nitrous oxides, etc) and short term (volatility to exploding via sparks), fossil fuels are, still, unparalleled in mobile, compact power, and gives one the resources to research cleaner energy sources.

Random Idea #73: Simu-Chess · 4:15am Sep 14th, 2021

It is known that in Chess, what color you play as is not equal. White, going first, has a slight advantage. 

One “solution” I’ve seen around is various forms of “Real Time Chess.”

Diary Updoot 21 - 22 · 4:49am Feb 14th, 2021

Hey y'all. Finally got to write my favorite chapter. If nothing else, Ch 21 added a completely new fight sequence between Agatha and Gladas, and a better explanation to why Agatha was sitting around until the last minute, to draw a bridge to the conflict between Agatha and Harmony.

Ch 22 got minor edits to flow better and link with the previous chapter's exposition better.

Also 19 and 20 were updated, forgot to link the fic last time FYI
