Ghost Chapter 39 is up!

A lot later than I was hoping, but it’s up. Getting Chapter 39 out on my now-usual monthly schedule didn’t go as planned for two reasons: I ran into that old enemy of enemies: writer’s block. I’d planned on fitting Lorenz and Lysithea into the story for a while, but I couldn’t figure out whatContinue reading “Ghost Chapter 39 is up!”

Ghost Chapter 38 is live!

As I wrote this month’s new chapter, I scoured FEDatamine.com to find out who in the Black Eagles would be the most enthusiastic about the White Heron Cup. Dorothea (most likely to win), Ferdinand, and Caspar (least likely) were the only three who out-and-out beg the player to choose them, while Edelgard is on theContinue reading “Ghost Chapter 38 is live!”

Anything but “by the numbers”

This entry has also been posted on my Dreamwidth blog, and can be viewed at https://waltzoid.dreamwidth.org/6379.html. It also contains some spoilers for both Fire Emblem: Three Houses and The Ghost of Ochs, so please proceed carefully. Going over the statistics for The Ghost of Ochs on FanFiction.net (I really wish Archive of Our Own went into chapter-by-chapterContinue reading “Anything but “by the numbers””

Ghost Chapter 37 + thoughts on the upcoming FE spinoff

(The following post contains spoilers for Fire Emblem: Three Houses.) Tonight’s new chapter of The Ghost of Ochs, Warming Glow, concerns Byleth investigating that weird artifact in the garden that was mentioned back in Chapters 5 and 18. In the game, it’s where you’d scan amiibos to gain rewards (and bonus music from past FireContinue reading “Ghost Chapter 37 + thoughts on the upcoming FE spinoff”

Ghost Chapter 36 is now live!

The magic word for Chapter 36 of The Ghost of Ochs is “Birthday”. Monica turns nineteen years old (after worrying that she wouldn’t survive beyond her eighteenth birthday), which means she gets a handful of gifts from her friends and family! In related news, Monica’s mother (who isn’t mentioned in the game; maybe she diedContinue reading “Ghost Chapter 36 is now live!”

Ghost Chapter 35 is live!

Fresh off my non-winning NaNoWriMo break, I went ahead and posted Chapter 35 of The Ghost of Ochs just in time for Christmas. This chapter isn’t Christmas-themed (the actual Christmas analogue in Three Houses appears to be the White Heron Cup and the subsequent Garreg Mach ball, which will probably be covered in a laterContinue reading “Ghost Chapter 35 is live!”

Ghost Chapter 34 is live!

In Chapter 34, Monica hasn’t fully forgotten about the bandit woman who attacked her during her first month back at the academy. Even though she hasn’t heard anything from Raine since then, she makes a point to try to dig into her background to figure out what she was doing in Imperial territory in theContinue reading “Ghost Chapter 34 is live!”

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!”
