Hey folks! It is now 6pm. You know what that means. It is interview time! Let us begin.
Here is how the interview works: You can all ask questions and chat freely in the chatroom called AtAChat. I will be copy-pasting your questions to Alexiuss and he will answer them in live time in ATAInterview.
We conduct the interview this way to avoid having the artist spammed with too many questions all at once, and to reduce text clutter so that you can all read the artist's responses to the questions.
A special thank you goes out to our lovely mods, ~Melancholy-Minds and ~Twilight-Zero!
Please be aware that we do our best to get as many questions answered as possible, however, if we do not choose your question to send to the artist, please do not be offended. It does not mean it was not a good question. It is just not possible for the artist to answer all questions. Thank you for your understanding.

It had survived things that no mug should have had to endure.
It had been dropped off cliffs, plunged into radioactive water, used to hold questionable substances and once travelled several hundred kilometres after Pilot tied a helium balloon to it. It had been thrown at Snippy countless times. It had suffered the indignity of being sat on by Engie after the Captain left it lying on a chair.
It had never been washed in its life.
But in the end, all it took was one little nudge, and the mug the great, glorious mug was reduced to a few shards of broken ceramic and a spatter of sad-looking tea.

I hear it day and night.
But if I am to care,
I can tell you I won’t tonight.
Death dare not touch me,
Conquest dare not claim me,
Even War will not face me.
For I fear none of them.
I bring death,
I end wars,
Conquest stops in its tracks at the sight of my wings.
No one dares face Pestilence,
For they know who awaits after I place my mark.
Could you be brave enough,
To stare in my eyes,
And stay in my presence for more than a minute?
I know you feel your throat burns,
Your skin becomes pocked,
If you stand with me,
I’ll soon hand you over to death.

But there is love on my arms now
smirking and itching away at me.
I'll claw it out a hundred times over
because remembering you
that is worse than self-inflicted injury.

The Scroll Of RighteousnessThe one atop the throne, about his right side was a scroll, two cubits long and half a cubit wide. And upon the scroll was writing on the backside and within; and was sealed nine times over along the length of the scroll. Before me a strong angel looked about and upon his lips uttered, “Who upon the dominion of the LORD shall open this scroll of parchment and look thereon?” And neither man nor beast from the Earth, nor the angels in heaven nor any beneath the Earth were able to open the scroll or look thereon.The Scroll Of Righteousness in Free Verse More Like This

The Fourth SealUpon this being accomplished wrote I the fourth seal, which had opened.

Upon this, the people of Phoinikes saw that there was a revolt against them, and went to the armory to gather weapons and quell the revolt. The servants who tended them were at the armory of the city, and had been in wait.

It wasn’t always something they both agreed to watch, however, since Soul would usually put something else on when she was far too captivated into her novel to even notice.

Soul spent most of his preteen years insulting his Meister by the way she looked. He called her names along the lines of 'flat chest' or 'tiny tits' and commented on her 'fat ankles' and her 'lack of sex appeal', and no matter how many times she reacted by hitting him with a Maka-Chop, he was stupid enough to keep doing it as the days went by. He noticed that it hurt her feelings, but he was just too dumb and too naïve to realize that it was much deeper than that.
Honestly, the only reason why he did this to her was because he was trying hard to distract his mind from thinking about her so much, but by the time they got their very first kishin egg, he'd already fallen and it was too late to turn back. No matter how many times he called her a bookworm or flat chested, there would be no denying his feelings in the near future.

Normally when they did their spring cleaning, Maka discovered piles upon piles of scrapbooks and photo albums of when she was a child. Her Parents had literally made a living by taking pictures of her from the day she was born to the day she became a student at the DWMA. The pictures had come to an end around that time because of the divorce, so she tried not to look at the more recent photos to avoid the bitter feelings that poisoned her gut. Looking at the pictures of her reading her first book or sitting in her Papa's lap when she was barely even able to walk made her feel a lot better.

When she would find them, she normally looked through them out on the couch and he would usually saunter on over to sit beside her and ask some questions every other page. She didn't mind that he looked at them with her; in fact she actually quite appreciated his curiosity. It lead her to believe that he actually wanted to le

One of the main rules a Weapon was told to follow was 'Do whatever your Meister orders you to do'. There were many other rules as well, such as 'Keep your Meister safe' and 'Do not fight them when they have made a decision'. Soul Eater followed these rules for quite a long time into his relationship with his Partner, Maka Albarn. He listened to her commands, was willing to push her aside and take a hit for her if needed be, and he was never there to question her decisions. He was always the guy who stood in the background and kept quiet when Maka was setting up their plan of attack within the mental confines of her mind.
He just sat back and waited for his orders.
That all changed the day he realized his Meister would have died if he let her do what she wanted. He had become the first Weapon in their generation to cross the line that was never supposed to be crossed. He had called out to her not to go; he pleaded her not to go that way. Soul yelled at her from withi

The last time Maka actually sat down and watched the sunset was so far behind her that it seemed like it was ages ago. She leaned against the wall that held her back from falling off of the roof of the school and she stared at the sun as it tiredly lowered from the sky and got closer to the horizon. At this point in the day, it was exhausted and it couldn't laugh for very much longer. Drool spilled from its mouth and it heaved in deep breaths while it struggled to keep its eyes open. It would have been a strange sight for someone that grew up in a world without this sun, but to her and everyone else, it was a completely normal sight—if not, it was absolutely hilarious.
"What are you doing up here?"
At her Partner's voice, she perked up and turned to see that he'd finally found her standing by herself on the roof balcony. "I was watching the sunset." She answered truthfully, but there was still a hint of a white lie behind her words. She had actually left the group and gone

Did you feel its simplicity surround you -
something caught in moon stones
by the dawning glow
or a picture
painted by your lover
lingering in the hall?
And will you wear it
like a tapestry
something myriad in brightly colored hues
or a shadow
hidden from the others
drifting like a caul?

the nicotine on their breath
stalking new prey
as it mingles in the streets

The women wear handkerchiefs

and from the buildings
stream white flags
warning the children
there are vacancies
below the surface.
do not recognize us -
we leave the doors open
while the windows look
and the gardens starve.
But we shall collect wounds
this harvest -
roots trapped in soil,
dry husks in crates
and barrels by the score
to haul to market,
the slender barter
of our dreams
a final afterthought
treading on our tongues.

Jimmy Boyle kept seeing her sweater at the swings,

And her best friend, Jenny Black

throwing copper across the kickball field
where recess waited to swallow them.
The toys vanished from the sandbox every evening
leaving nothing but a soft trail of disappointment

their accusations of neglect

But winter proved a discordant grave -
the protest of frozen ground
an errant melody in the schoolyard
and her shoes kept shrinking

leaving a thick crust of frost

a darker growth within her womb

Its muscles strong; its blood so thin
A changeling child is evil fruit
to welcome to this world
its darkness burrowed in the roots
where hell itself lies curled
It rests and grows as time abates
And shackles her beneath its weight
It rests and grows
It rests and grows
And time delivers wretched fate
A mother's love will never know
the sting of cold regret
or how the world reaps what it sows
too harsh to ere forget.
She only knows her heavy heart
will tear the heavens wide apart
She only knows

The ill bred blessing of the dark.

Hiding in plain sight within the stronghold of her enemies, there was only one place where Captain Maria Elizabeth Shelley could ever be herself. "Debbie", the civilian orbital transport that she had "miraculously" piloted--while maidified and bound--to within detection range of the Sherwood Cluster, and AMAZON's primary base of operations, had become in many ways, her home away from FMP.
Debbie was a whimsical appellation, given to the craft by Shelley, in honor of Debbie Wilkins, the oft-ligatured character she portrayed eons ago on her ancient Debutante Detective serials.
It was mildly annoying that none of the soldiers of the Anti Maidification Army she had now successfully infiltrated had the slightest inkling of the significance of the name, but it was just as well. The series was filmed and screened all of eight
Maid Wars Notes 31: Boudoir of the Beast 08Whenever the average human saw a sentient robot, it was almost always engaged in some manner of charitable activity.

It would equally be likely to see one playing catch with a young amputee, who would return the robot's mechanically perfect pitches with a pair of vat-grown replacement limbs. And of course, there was the famed viral video of the one robot who got its manipulator joints caught, when it tried to demonstratively run its appendage through the curly, silken locks of a former male pattern baldness sufferer.
The name the robots provided, upon their introduction to a curious humanity, would translate roughly to the term, "benefactor", but even if it didn't, such a name would have eventually been coined for them, due to the sheer magnitude of their noble work

The baronial chamber featured a miniature duplicate statue of the "Man meets Husquon" sculpture that adorned the center of the main campus mall. The room also boasted three globes in a trio of large round wooden armatures. One was of Athena, the planet upon which OLoCL was erected. One was of the planet Mars--barren and red--as it appeared pre-colonization. The third was also of Mars, but post human occupation, with its sweeping patches of blue and green.

The platoon was on a long deployment and sleeping in shifts. When the sergeant reluctantly acknowledged the existence of fatigue, Martinez drew the short straw to wake her up to take her turn at watch. (Actually, Martinez would probably rig the straws to get the job. )
She found Prin resting peacefully, cuddling the brobdingnagian EGOR like a child with a particularly large stuffed bear. (A stuffed bear that wouldn't eventually kidnap her.)
Martinez had heard that when Prin's fugitive travels brought her to enlist with AMAZON, her first nights in the barracks were marked by an uncharacteristically fitful slumber. Anyone could tell from her fidgeting, kicking, and groaning, that even in sleep, she was fleeing unseen assailants.
This all changed when she was issued her rifle.

Well, perhaps not a "ghost," per se.
Tessa Stratto was very much alive, and undoubtedly still terrorizing students back on Our Lady of Celestial Light, with her proprietary blend of oppressive strictness and disquieting detachment. In any case, living or dead, there was no way the headmistress of that august institution would be waiting at the quartermaster's office of an AMAZON armory, seventy-eight light years away.
For one thing, Stratto had no use for what she called "The girl scout militia," and bore zero tolerance toward any references to the urban myth surrounding the supposed "Maid War." Prin herself once had to intervene once on behalf of one of her students, who was threatened with suspension over a reference to the Anti Maidification Army made in a paper discussing the cultural significance of Henry V. The headmistress looked at the entire conflict as

From Prin's days as a Greenskirt:
On a routine patrol, her rifle squad would encounter a small BeeDub unit, roving around on its own in the field. The other members of the squad are taken in by its innocuous little noises and beeps and its charming facial expressions. The women shoulder their weapons and kneel over the little drone like school girls over a stray cat.
There is even talk of adopting it.
"Are you lost, little guy?"
Then suddenly, Prin impales the intelligent device with her trusty Jet Knife, and raises her rifle.
Prin says nothing to the protests of her squad mates, who complain to the tune of,

Debbie was passing through the broad expanse between the Icarus and Ixion hyperspace nodes, and Shelley had made the final adjustment burn, to put her on course for the last connection, sixty minutes ago. The were no stellar bodies or gravity wells between her present position and the IXHN, some six astronomical units away, so no course corrections were necessary. For Shelley, that meant twelve more hours of sub-luminal travel.
Twelve more hours of auto pilot and silence.
Shelley had never realized before how lonely the cargo shuttle was without a traveling companion. The ship didn't creak or shake like an atmospheric craft, and the sounds of the life support generator

The MASA operative who helped coordinate the mass abduction told the Screen Face carrying it out that there were 30 maidifiables on the bus: 28 students, 1 professor, and 1 female bus operator. After the attack the machines reported back that they had "recruited" the 28 students and the driver, but found a middle schooler, instead of a professor.
The reporting robot informed the operative in order to assure him FMP had observed the secret treaty and not harvested the youth. The operative heard the news and realized he now had a belly full of damage control to do.

Since the Multinational AeroSpace Armada, has the collected resources of the hundreds of worlds of the United Celestial Commonwealth of Earth (UCCE) behind it, it is far more vast and powerful than the FMP Recruitment Drive, which only represents the resources of a handful of worlds. (Think USA vs Japan during the Paific War.)
Having run countless simulations, and realizing any conflict with MASA would result in the utter extinction of robot kind, it was deemed logical by the robots to negotiate a settlement with the larger force. (It is believed that it was actually a Volitional Maid who came up with the idea to bribe the admiralty by offering them mind controlled harems.)
So a secret treaty exists with MASA in which the armada publicly denies
