The Armourer and the Living Weapon is complete. There are several chapters left to post, and I'll fuss with them more before they go up, two a week I think, but... it's finished.

It's 56,500 words, more or less - it will grow a little as I polish, probably, but no more than 57,000. That's short, by modern novel standards, but it's still a novel, and well outside the 40,000-word upper limit of novella, at least, as recognised by various awards.


One of the first warnings I put up - before I even turned on archive warnings on AO3 - was "CW: this is... gonna be pretty fucked up." Believe me - that has happened. So I can say I have delievered on that, and I can also say now that I have written a novel, and I most certainly did not see that coming a year ago.

Surprising part is, there may be a sequel. It'll be simmering for a while, I think, but...

...yeah. There may be a sequel.
