Ghost Chapter 33 is live!

We’re starting off Chapter 33 on a somewhat low-key note, as all of the students are returning to the monastery after going on adventures. I wanted to put the scene in with Byleth talking to the house leaders to show that she was curious about what the other houses were doing while she, Edelgard, andContinue reading “Ghost Chapter 33 is live!”

Ghost Chapter 32 is live!

With the release of Chapter 32 of The Ghost of Ochs, our second story arc is complete. Monica and company have fended off an attack on Remire Village, with one of the perpetrators being her arch-enemy, Kronya. The defense mission was a success, but not without cost – many villagers are dead, and Kronya andContinue reading “Ghost Chapter 32 is live!”

Ghost Chapter 31 is live!

Two months? It’s really been two months between the publication of Chapter 30 and Chapter 31? I really am slipping! I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later, especially with this chapter where I was trying to juggle a couple of different viewpoints at once (the first wave of the invasion, then Edelgard’sContinue reading “Ghost Chapter 31 is live!”

Ghost Chapter 30 is live!

While the AO3 and versions of this story will register this as Chapter 31 (because I don’t include Monica’s little nightmare interlude in the chapter numbering), “Lying in Wait” is actually Chapter 30. Now that I’ve reached the 100,000-word milestone on this fic, I also went and did something that I’d meant to doContinue reading “Ghost Chapter 30 is live!”

Ghost Chapter 29 is live!

So, a couple of things to talk about for Chapter 29 of The Ghost of Ochs… Count Varley, who is mentioned in the game but doesn’t make a physical appearance, is the major reason why Bernadetta is…well, “Bernie-bear”. To make a long story short, everything he does that involves his daughter is guaranteed to produceContinue reading “Ghost Chapter 29 is live!”

Ghost Chapter 28 is now live!

Before I started writing chapter 28, I wondered what happens to those who commit crimes against the Church of Seiros who don’t immediately get executed like the few leftover Western Church priests did after the Rite of Rebirth. I figured that some of them get shipped off to some prison somewhere and aren’t seen againContinue reading “Ghost Chapter 28 is now live!”

Ghost Chapter 27 is now live!

It’s way too tempting for me to make a “Year of the Ochs” joke considering that this weekend marks the start of the Lunar New Year festivities. That said, my publishing of Chapter 27 of Ghost couldn’t have been timed more perfectly, since I’m also on a three-day weekend for Presidents’ Day. (Minor game spoilersContinue reading “Ghost Chapter 27 is now live!”

The Ghost turns 1!

On January 12, 2020, I uploaded the first chapter of The Ghost of Ochs to Archive of Our Own and As I explained in my intro post, I wanted to write a story about one of Fire Emblem: Three Houses‘ more mysterious and/or little-spoken-of characters in Monica von Ochs (the real one, not theContinue reading “The Ghost turns 1!”

The Ghost of Ochs Chapter 23 is live!

Chapter 23 is up! Remember that “secret thing” Bernadetta was working on for Linhardt earlier? Now she gets to give it to him for a birthday present. The “Bernie-bear” reference was too easy to make, so I went for it. I had a discussion with a longtime friend on Discord (who’s a much bigger FireContinue reading “The Ghost of Ochs Chapter 23 is live!”

The Ghost of Ochs Chapter 22 is live!

We’re now up to Chapter 22 in my Fire Emblem: Three Houses story. So far, it’s the only one I’ve written where Monica doesn’t have any direct involvement in the proceedings. Her (and Linhardt and Bernadetta’s) portion of the investigation into “who or what attacked Garreg Mach” took place in Chapter 20, and I hadContinue reading “The Ghost of Ochs Chapter 22 is live!”
