    Summary

    An epilogue to The Rules of Wishing.

    NON-CANON. There may be a real sequel at some point, but I decided I had to write this one to get it out of my head.

    Summary

    Lucifer ends up in Hell, but it's the wrong one. Satan is very confused to meet him.

    This will make considerably more sense if you've listened to at least a couple of episodes of Old Harry's Game, ideally the whole first season (it's available on youtube). Fortunately that's not much of a chore, because it's really good.

    Summary

    Science fiction loosely based on the Qeng Ho from Vernor Vinge's "A Deepness in the Sky", about the question of what it's like to work on a ten thousand year old legacy code base.

    Mostly slice of life from the perspective of a programmer aboard an interstellar trading ship with little over-arching plot (though that may change over time).

    This is a mirror with the canonical version living on my blog, but it's probably much easier to read the archives here.

    Summary

    Some scenes from an alternate version of Disney's Aladdin.

    What if people were good at wishing? The Genie's rules have holes you could drive a herd of camels through, but they don't have to. Aladdin and Jafar's wishes are shallow and limited, and lack the foresight that really effective wishing entails, but wouldn't a battle between effective wishers be much more interesting? And while we're at it, why does Jasmine have so little agency and basically act as a prize to be won in a battle between two men when literally the entire point of her narrative is that she's not that?

    Not exactly a complete fanfic, but enough of one that if you've seen the movie you can probably fill in the gaps yourself.

    Contains normative advice on the use and binding of Genies.

    Summary

    In an AU where everyone is actually good at their jobs, things turned out a bit differently. Apophis never discovered earth, but ended up at war with them anyway. Fortunately, they found a helpful ally in another system lord, Ba'al, who has taught them that not all Goa'uld are evil and some form a true symbiosis with their host.

    Unfortunately, he is now discovering that humanity are not the safest of allies if you don't warn them about the elaborate social rules of the Goa'uld, and that he has been dragged into a war he didn't want to start and cannot possibly hope to win.

    Warning: Abandoned fic.

    Summary

    The diary of one of the Ancients responsible for designing the original Stargates is discovered. Some things that were previously thought to be fundamental features of wormhole physics turn out not to be. A comedy about the importance of software testing and mass-extinction.
