Ghost Chapter 30 is live!

While the AO3 and FanFiction.net 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 FanFiction.net. 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!”

New Discord server

Today, I’ve opened up a Discord server called “Lady Monica’s Dominion” for discussion of The Ghost of Ochs. If you have a Discord account and want to join in on the fun, then follow this invitation link! I’ll admit that I’m still quite new to using Discord, even after I navigated my way around someContinue reading “New Discord server”

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!”

Hello again…again!

After you’ve attempted blogging and/or website design for as long as I have – almost 20 years, by my count – you lose track of how many websites you’ve started and stopped along the way. Then again, when a site like this is one of your earliest claims to having a small chunk of theContinue reading “Hello again…again!”
