Literary Stardust is run by Angelica Fuchs, a graduate student currently attending VCU. She studies English there, focusing on research and analysis of both “classic” forms of literature as well as newer forms of storytelling such as video games and comics. She is currently focusing on her thesis as well as designing twine games in her spare time.
Your name’s not Star…so what’s the deal with that?
I use the word Stardust somewhere in almost all of my usernames online. It is a reference to both the show Cosmos and the movie Titan A.E.–basically, I’m a huge space nerd.
Have you been published before?
Other than a few quick pieces in campus literary magazines I haven’t had any of my fiction published. However, I did recently work on the game Civilization VI: Rise and Fall.
Can you give details about the game? What did you work on?
Are you offering me a job? 😉
Seriously though, I can’t discuss exact details just yet. Check out their twitter page though for announcements!
What other projects are you working on?
I’m currently working on a novel tentatively titled “Scavenger” at the moment as well as a plethora of Twine games. I am also working on my thesis, which is about the merging of ludology and narratology in video games. I’m also working on a video game with a few friends. More details about that will be given once we’re further into development.
Don’t you have a tumblr blog with the same url?
I do, but I wanted to have a blog that specifically focused on the analysis of video games and literature. My tumblr blog, while just as serious at times, also plays host to a lot of meme posts about the writing process.
