I finally got this looking close to decent, so I may as well start promoting it:
Content:It's blogfic with a speculative air to it. I shan't explain deeper than that.
Technical: Because the site's so text-heavy, I went for a modified Toni style, as I considered it clean and readable for long entries. Since this is essentially a serial story, my theory was that a fair number of people would be reading the archives, so I wanted to make it easy for them to read forward. The only vaguely annoying part was making the archives list in ascending order on the sidebar. I had to hack the get_archives function for that.
So check it out, if you like, and let me know what you think. Any suggestions gratefully accepted, particularly those that can help me make the site as easy-to-navigate and "sticky" as possible. Thanks, and Have Fun.
