[sticky post]A Table Of Contents, In Progress

As part of the January 13 Prompt Call, I started doing landing pages for series I write or worlds I write in.  I don't always write in an established world or series but I seem to have a lot of worlds and series out there.

Having created landing pages, they are of no use to any of us, if no-one can find them.  Hence this page.

The landing pages created so far are for:

The Angel Universe - a world of polytheism, angels, vard, and a lot of humans, including one group who believe they are the chosen of the gods.

Rensa - within the world of the Defensive Diaspora, there is a world where the revolution has wiped out the entire Imperial family.  Except for one princess, who was made a proposal she can't refuse by a man who's in his job because everyone else is dead.

The Prince of Cats - a father and son who aren't quite what they seem.

The Winged Cat Universe a contemporary world with magic, and winged cats.

After The Fairy Tale - so what happened after the fairy tale ended?

The Squad - four ship protection specialists in a space faring culture.

Mayin -  after a decade away fighting an interstellar war, a returned soldier tries to adjust to the civilian world with the complication of an unexpected suitor.

Erima -  the demons are taking over, the godssons are the free world's best hope, and Erima was not the child her mother hoped for.

The Elf - the elf has taken over the city.  He's up to something and he's being opposed, but the opposition doesn't care if they hurt people.

Nai - a mangaish road trip undertaken by a young, female, professional gi fighter and her instructor.

Frack - Ludwina Frack has reappeared after being missing for seven years, but her life of spaceships, piracy and offers she can't refuse isn't over yet.

Iphana - within the world of the Defensive Diaspora, on a world with extreme arctic climate changes, a young technician is almost abandoned for the winter...

Afterwhen - there was a catastrophe, maybe even an apocalypse, but that was a while ago and is just passing from living memory. Different groups have different resources, different skills and different issues.

The Unformed Coven - thirteen people who are quite happy as they are, with their own concerns and lives. Other people, it seems, have plans for them that they may not care for.

Dark Fantasy Bingo - based on the prompts from my Dark Fantasy Bingo card from 2013 we have the story of Sillan Denevda after she became Tamin Sorid - because of politics and stuff.

The Twisted Skein - probably space opera with star ships, isolated human civilizations, plus drama and intrigue if I can pull them off.

Inheritance - in the wake of an elderly man's death, secrets begin to come out and stories to reawaken. (Note: may contain super heroes.)

After I finish listing the various series, then I'll have to keep the landing pages up-to-date....

Yay, landing pages!

For what it's worth (looking at the frustrated/headache icon), I find that maintaining an index as I go is much easier than building one out of unstructured data. I hope you find likewise.

What kelkyag said.

Also typo/garden path:
Except for one princess, who's ^ made a proposal she can't refuse by a man who's in his job because everyone else is dead.
insert been
Because "who's made" could be (and was) misunderstood as "who has made" instead of "who is made".

• a long history in tea houses and, I am told, in mingji and yueji establishments

Re: some more recent typos at Patreon

Clancy and Pae'kura - I've fixed two of these, thank you for the catches.

I'm still thinking about "we two". Pae'kura is being specific about who is included in the 'we' he is talking about. He is also not using his normal idiom. I think the question is, why do I think this is a more formal form? (Something in the back of my head is trying to blame Kenneth Branagh and the St Crispin's Day speech.)

Re: some more recent typos at Patreon

I plan to work my way through these this week.
The St Crispin's Day speech shouldn't be why I want to define 'us' that way there, so why do I want to use it?
