    Summary

    Co-written with Paul Corrigan. This one should really be allowed to speak for itself, although I will say there are plentiful spoilers in it for both the movie and the TV series. Much easier to understand if you're Canadian, or, like Paul, from Michigan, which is practically Canada anyway.

    Summary

    Written between (approx) 1999 and 2002, Jaquemart was my attempt to provide what I would call a "synthesizing" story following the ending of the TV series, one that would draw together disparate elements, give answers to unanswered questions, suggest new directions, and generally provide an expanded personal vision of the strange world that Shoujo Kakumei Utena dwells in.

    Jaquemart has all the strengths and weaknesses of my earlier long multipart works. I tried to put too much in, bit off more than I could chew, and got choked; I think frustration over the story's weaknesses and my failure to keep a handle on it contributed to but were not the only cause of my burnout with Utena and fandom in general. There are tons of things I like in Jaquemart, and tons of things I dislike--the major thing I dislike being the fact that I never finished it, disappointing both myself and my readers.

    Summary

    This was a love story between a pair of right cocks.

    Not on Jiang Cheng's watch.

    (The one where Jiang Cheng's a PhD chlamydia researcher; Lan Xichen's the NEET social recluse who moves in next door; and they come together because Jiang Cheng's pet chicken Wei Cluckxian won't stay out of Lan Xichen's chicken Wingji's coop).

    EDIT: Russian translation now available from Sl_ai (Thank you so much!): https://archiveofourown.org/works/29824479/chapters/73379835

    Summary

    When Jiang Chen was little, she told her mother that she wanted to be like her when she grew up.

    Madame Yu thought it referred to her cultivation and was very proud, even smug, but actually Jiang Cheng had been eyeing her beautiful skirts and delicate jewelry, her proud back and gentle curves.

    It wasn’t until Jiang Cheng was a little older that she realized that she couldn’t be like her mother – that she was supposed to be like her father. Because she was her father’s son, and not his daughter.

    She was never going to be like her father.

    Summary

    Sometimes Nie Mingjue thought that things would be easier if she had been born a man, or at least presented as one, the way she would have if she was a misaligned reincarnation.

    That wasn't her fate, though; not in this life - but it seemed to be working out fine regardless.
