Welp! This is the first one, and I can’t get the comic to show up correctly in ‘Preview,’ so bear with me for a couple minutes if nothing shows up. It may break everything. We’ll see.

If you’re new, here’s what you need to know: Xiyuan Liu is the least sane sim I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Haunted is a retelling of the gloriously bonkers stunt he pulled 0.3 microseconds after being given free will. This event happens toward the beginning of Catastrophe Theory, in case you’d like to spoil it for yourself. Mm-hmm. This is a spinoff. But because CT is an emergent story, the early stuff is weaker, and this is my chance to retell Yuan’s story with the new skills I’ve developed.

Or rather, ‘am developing’ is more accurate, since I started digital art in June. So expect varying levels of wonk for a while. I’ll do my best to maintain a negative derivative in wonk.

And while I have you, here’s a shameless plug.

  1. Are you participating in the Monthly SimLit Short Story Challenge?
  2. Why not?
  3. You can do it, dawg! I believe in you!
