It's the Iliad of Homer, in space, with giant robots. Apollo Mojave decided that giving godlike power to individual soldiers was the only way for individual soldiers to retain strategic relevance in an era of high-tech war. Apollo Mojave didn't live to finish writing his Iliad, and Mycroft Canner never finished the tale either, so this is my attempt. Have mercy, Gentle Reader.
Don't expect thematic or tonal consistency. I'm seat-of-my-pantsing a NaNoWriMo. I have half a setting conceit, an approximate mapping of themes and locations, and ... not much else. Tags and archive warnings may change as this work is extended. Gundam and SAC_2045 are referenced as a source of certain concepts, but characters will likely not appear in this work.
A young person chooses a Hive, which wasn't the choice of their ba'pas. Terra Ignota fanfic.
If you haven't finished reading the Terra Ignota series, hold off on this one. Definitely don't read this if you haven't reached Chapter 15 of The Will to Battle; I wouldn't want to spoil you with the Utopian Oath.
12 Miles Below, Book 3, Chapter 13: "Tackling Apex Predators" - tighter lips, tighter fights by ontploffing
Fandoms: 12 Miles Below
14 Apr 2022
A canon-compliant partial rewrite of chapter 13, book 3 of 12 Miles Below to address the things that bothered me. In this canon-compatible version of the chapter, loose lips will not sink ships, and Keith is a little smarter.
If you're not up to speed on 12 Miles Below: The narrator, Keith, wears a suit of armor called Journey, powered by technology and magic and nanomachines and the armor's own AI, which is also possessed by a lady called Cathida, who once wore the armor. Together, they've developed a combat technique where Cathida drives the armor with her lifetime of reflexes as an Imperial knight, while Keith manipulates occult fractals to generate magic. When he retreats from his body to let Cathida drive the armor, the occult lets him see concepts.

How might the presence of characters from Looney Tunes throw off the plot of Frank Herbert's Dune?
The watercress and beetroot stews were having an effect.
