This page is nothing more than a place for me to put up SAO-related links and stuff about my fanfics--at the moment, primarily related to my AU series Fairy Dance of Death. Don't expect anything fancy.
Fairy Dance of Death [TV Tropes page]: AU reboot of the SAO universe, with the death game taking place in Alfheim rather than Aincrad. Probably what you came here for.
The Unraveling: Part 1 of the adventures of my OCs Kadyn and Camilla, following their first month in the game. Start with this fic if you want to read about them; it directly lays much of the groundwork for what happens in The Red Valkyrie.
The Red Valkyrie: Part 2 of Kadyn and Camilla's adventures, several months later on the 11th floor.
Troubles Shared: Kadyn and Camilla side story. This was actually my first SAO fic, in fact my first fic in about ten years at the time, and it is in serious need of a rewrite for quality and to account for changes to their origin story.
Behind a Curtain of Clouds: One-shots from the perspective of Kayaba Akihiko during the launch day of SAO.
Man in the Middle: A techno-thriller AU that focuses on the efforts of Kikuoka's team to rescue the players from SAO--from the viewpoint of someone you might not expect. This grew out of a series of conversations I had with other fans about the technological issues I had with SAO's plot, and took on a life of its own.
Progress: I occasionally update this page or my profile with progress towards the next chapter. But if you don't mind spoilers, chapters in progress are posted for feedback on the Spacebattles.com creative writing forum. Did I mention beware of spoilers?
There are nine playable races in Alfheim, each with their own distinct advantages and affinities: Fairy Races of Alfheim
I have a rich set of data relating to the demographics of Alfheim as it exists in Fairy Dance of Death: FDD Race and Gender Demographics
Majutsugo is the language of magic in Alfheim as depicted in FDD. It has an internally consistent grammar and syntax which can be learned and used to construct new spells, and it will play an important part in one of the plot threads in Act 2.
The following should be considered a living document, one which is in need of updating and is by no means an exhaustive list of vocabulary and grammar: Majutsugo (6/1/14: presently a bit outdated)
There is also an interactive spell progression chart, although it too is not an exhaustive list of all spells and effects in the game, and is still a work in progress: Spell Chart
To help me keep distances, locations et al straight while I was writing FDD, I created a world map for my version of ALO. Aside from the 600x600 "thumbnail" version embedded below, this is available in two resolutions and the original (PSP X2) source file, for those who are interested in what kind of (very basic) layer/mask voodoo went into it. [3000x3000] [1000x1000] [PSPImage Source]
For similar reasons as the FDD map, I created a (non-canonical) map of the 11th floor of Aincrad for my fanfic The Red Valkyrie. Click the small version below for the 1280x1024 version.
