Hey! I'm Rose, and my profile is now entirely dedicated to the Vigilant, because that's probably what you’re here to read. The Piano Girl is a short, lighthearted romance, so you could give it a shot if you like my style but hate gore and crushing despair.

On to the Q&A!


I haven’t read the Vigilant, but I’m thinking about checking it out. What’s it like?

It's long, that's what it's like!! It moves in wide spirals around the story's subject, two mirrored groups of people struggling with abstract junk (like grief, duty and trust) in ways that feel anything but abstract. The science in this sci-fi story is very soft, focusing less on understanding quantum entanglement and more on understanding the personal trials of our teen heroes. They're just doing their best to survive gym class and also the unraveling of a deadly conspiracy.

Caution: the good guys drop like flies. I'm fond of putting them in rough situations, so there's lots of gore, angst, and confusion. Plus pretty much every trigger under the sun except for sexual assault. Plus some aliens. Gotta have some aliens.


I made it to the latest chapter.

I just- I am in awe. Come collect your cookie, you cool and amazing person, you.

Are we still in the “Bloodbath” phase that you talked about at the beginning of Jinks’ episode?

No. :D Which is not to say that no one else will die! The Sunnies have guns and the Seibues still have orders. But blood will no longer be prevalent enough to be an arc word.

Why are you so excited?

See above. But that’s not the only reason. We've entered a very special part of the story! And as you get a feel for what kind of special it is, I hope you enjoy the change! You know I do. I’m absolutely thrilled about the story I’m telling, and I hope you’ll stick around to listen. Be careful, because I tend to get emotitive and I may wave my hands and knock you over or something.


Current Status:

I'm aiming for a spring update. I'll check in with you in April, but as of January, I'm working on slimming down the outline and connecting it to future plot points!

Happy New Year!

The Vigilant reviews
Yeah, hiding under the covers from monsters sounds like a really great idea until the monsters start eating your neighbors. Other great ideas: Not getting shot. Friends that always have your back. Knowing whose conspiracy is strangling you.

It's just a little something I wrote in bed a minute before I fell asleep. It turns out dreams have the most promise for metaphorical poetry.
