Archimage, Archimagus, n. [NL.; pref. archi- + L. magus, Gr. , a Magian.]
This is a Shoujo Kakumei Utena fan fiction, set After Ohtori. Contains spoilers galore for anyone who hasn't seen the entire series, and a few (hopefully) fun references for people who have seen the movie.
AcknowledgementsThis story wouldn't keep happening except for the feedback and encouragement of everyone who has written to me and told me how much they enjoy this work-in-progress.
We would like to dedicate Part 13 of Archimage to Sailor Doc, who never lost faith.
I want to thank my wife for her tireless editing, commentary, and suggestions for changes and additions, as well as her steadily increasing involvement in the actual writing of the story. Without her, Parts 5 through 12 would not have been possible, and she has written at least half of part 13 and the epilogue.
And thank all of you. Without the comments, emails, fan art, and all the other support I've received over the years, Archimage would never have been completed. But here we are, at last, a little more than 10 years after I started posting this story, and it's done. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Fan Art for ArchimageI agree with other fanfic writers that fan art is, I think, one of the highest forms of compliment that anyone can pay a writer. I get a kick out of all praise, certainly, but there's a special thrill when I open my mailbox and find beautiful stuff in it, all apparently inspired by my writing.
Please, please, please: if you like the art, tell the artist so! In most cases, I've given you either the artist's email or their website as a link. Artists want and need feedback as much as writers! Thanks!
Please note: If you'd like to see a full-sized version of most of these pieces, you can do that by going to the picture, removing the word "size" from the URL, and doing whatever you do to go to that URL (press return, etc.).
WallpaperI was playing around in Photoshop one day, and this came out. The art is Judy Justice's.
