About

Greetings comrades! You can call me Madiha, or “The Premier.”

About Unjust Depths:

My current project, Unjust Depths, is inspired by space opera and mecha/space anime and manga and my interest in history, particularly military history, as well science fiction more broadly (with elements of pulp science horror/”lovecraftian” horror) and aesthetically by anime mobile games, many of which I play and am a big fan of. Elements of it are also inspired by mysticism, the occult, liminal spaces, and conspiracy theories, among other things that interest me aesthetically.

About Madiha S.:

I have a great interest in leftist politics, revolutionary violence and wars, leftist activism and in the societal nuances of sexuality, gender variance and race and ethnicity. I write stories about characters who are having enormous feelings and encountering massive things (events, people, ideologies, tragedies, or literally massive objects). I enjoy writing characters who grapple with existing alongside others after grand, transformative events that feel surreal to them in the moment, and how the self reorganizes or reaffirms after such events.

I am a Marxist and all of my stories are written from this lens. My stories are about people and ideology, however, not about perfect archetypes and societies. People in my stories are allowed to be flawed and to have a sense of humanity, in both triumph and folly, be they communists or not. If you are expecting otherwise, my writing is not for you. I don’t believe in utopias, and I don’t write any.

I have written exactly one fanfiction, it can be found here. It is for Honkai Impact 3rd, my favorite mobile game. Much like Unjust Depths it is 18+ for sexual content.
