A couple of links

Sophia McDougall has done an interview about her newest project, a short story for a collection called Pandemonium. The interview is on The Girls' Guide to Surviving the Apocalypse.

Secondly, someone's made a TV Tropes page for the Romanitas series. Which is insanely awesome. Now I'm really curious as to who made it...

Savage City reaction post

Now that Savage City has been released, we might as well discuss it! Post your reactions, thoughts, incoherent flailings etc as comments here. Also, there will be spoilers. Consider yourselves warned.

New blog entry on Longvision

After a shamefully long hiatus, I've got the next chapter commentary blog post up on Longvision. It's on Chapter 3, 'Steel Cross', and can be found here.

Commentary on Longvision

I've written the first of my chapter commentaries. I plan to do one for every chapter of the series, and post them about once a week. Needless to say, this one is about chapter 1 of Romanitas, 'Embalmed'. Feel free to discuss it here, or on Longvision.

It should be obvious, but I'll just reiterate that this post has spoilers.

Character art by Sophia McDougall

Sophia McDougall has posted more character pictures on her blog. Be warned, one of them is spoilery for Rome Burning.

Meta post on the Sibyl's prophecy

I've got a post up on Longvision about the Sibyl's prophecy. [livejournal.com profile] ansketil_rose requested this ages ago, and I'm sorry it's taken me this long. Feel free to debate the conclusions I reach, either here or at Longvision.

From this week on, I'm going to be writing chapter-by-chapter commentary pieces on Longvision.

Longvision links roundup

I've recently done two new posts on Longvision. The first is about Noriko and the second is a character study of Varius.

These conclude my series of character studies for the time being. My next post will be the meta on the Sibyl's prophecy requested by [livejournal.com profile] ansketil_rose. After that, I'm intending to do a series of chapter-by-chapter commentary posts (some may be multi-chapter, while others may focus only on a single chapter). I hope I'll be able to manage to finish them before Savage City comes out!

Sophia McDougall on Livejournal

Sophia McDougall has now got herself a Livejournal. She can be found at [livejournal.com profile] sophiamcdougall. Her second post is wonderful, and contains heaps of art that she drew for Romanitas. I awwwed at the picture of Una and Marcus, of course.

Sophia McDougall on Twitter

If any of you use Twitter, you can follow Sophia McDougall. She's @McDougallSophia. I should be back soon with more Longvision posts, including the meta about the Sibyl's prophecy to Drusus that [livejournal.com profile] ansketil_rose requested.

Good news on Savage City release date

Sophia McDougall sent a message to all members of the Romanitas Facebook group, revealing that the release date for Savage City is now autumn 2010, not 2011 as had been previously intended. I've copied the message onto Longvision, so you can read it there.

What excellent news!

New Longvision post

A few months ago, I started a Romanitas fanblog on Wordpress, Longvision. I started it because I was sick of being a fandom of one, and was hoping that Longvision might be found by some fellow Romanitas fans and jumpstart a fandom. Luckily, this was exactly what happened - and is the reason for [livejournal.com profile] romanitas_fans's existence.

I update Longvision on an almost weekly basis. The focus there is on commentary, discussion and the occasional piece of news. This week's post is a character study of Drusus.

I'll begin a master-list of Longvision posts soonish, so that anyone who wants to use them as a resource will be able to find them easily. If anyone has anything they'd like me to write about on Longvision (or if anyone would like to guest-blog there), send me a message.

If you want to comment on specific Longvision posts, please do so over there, and not at [livejournal.com profile] romanitas_fans.
