An off-and-on writer studying political science and philosophy at university. Hopes to serve the Iraqi people and to illuminate the political significance of even the seemingly crudest populations' everyday lives and habits. Biggest influences are comics with an overtone of existential horror (say, Swamp Thing, Sandman, Lucifer); classic Russian literature; genre fiction; Iraqi poetry; depressing manga; any and all religious texts; philosophy; and early twentieth century American authors.

Editor for Episteme, an Undergraduate Philosophy Journal; web editor for a handful of nonprofit/activist websites; and editing slave to all her friends in academia.

Radical is Updated!

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 26, 2014, 11:27 AM

This means that the prologue, Radical [0] and chapter one Radical [1] are fully polished and edited; and Radical [2] has been finished (it turned out as long as both the previous sections put together). The plot is beginning to pick up too; so hopefully the lot of you can enjoy that now that I'm finally focusing. 

Soon I should also be delving into :iconjake-sjet: 's work as well, so I encourage everyone reading to do likewise. He's been working especially hard of late. Additionally, his work is always a mixed bag-- one might say a menagerie-- that rarely disappoints. 

Because I've been getting much better about time management I'm hoping to update more reliably as well. But I've sung that song and done that dance before so we'll see. The only reason to hold out more hope this time is, I suppose, that my winter break is pretty damn long. 

In the meantime, I want to thank :icona-murmuration: for encouraging my projects and giving me things to do that helped me get back in the swing of writing. Being a steady friend is in there too but I won't get sloppy here.

Interesting. Might I ask what prompted the name change and what it might mean?

Xerxes. It's an ahhh pseudonym I picked up for a competition, owing to the fact that there's a certain character I've always admired and which codifies all that I should remember about my personal faults and all that I should accept... so yes.

Huum, from a random Google search I can but say one thing: all that glitters is not gold. More often than not its CGI.

Yes typing in Xerxes does get one some interesting results...
