Written between (approx) 1999 and 2002, Jaquemart was my attempt to provide what I would call a "synthesizing" story following the ending of the TV series, one that would draw together disparate elements, give answers to unanswered questions, suggest new directions, and generally provide an expanded personal vision of the strange world that Shoujo Kakumei Utena dwells in.
Jaquemart has all the strengths and weaknesses of my earlier long multipart works. I tried to put too much in, bit off more than I could chew, and got choked; I think frustration over the story's weaknesses and my failure to keep a handle on it contributed to but were not the only cause of my burnout with Utena and fandom in general. There are tons of things I like in Jaquemart, and tons of things I dislike--the major thing I dislike being the fact that I never finished it, disappointing both myself and my readers.
