What is Corroded Circuitry?
It's a web fiction that updates three times a week! Corroded Circuitry is a universe - and the tale of those living in some of the most interesting times on record! Corroded Circuitry currently has three moving parts to it:
  • The Lodestar, an in-universe combo forum/podcast dedicated to making sure the public has knowledge that might otherwise not get any coverage in major media. The Lodestar updates every Monday!
  • Archiving Algorithm, a mysterious source has access to things it really shouldn't have - and whatever it is, it's decided to share it here! Archiving Algorithm updates every Wednesday!
  • User Error, more standard chapters! These update every Friday!
  • Corporate Loves You, this is currently locked! Whatever this is, it's currently patreon exclusive, until there are patreons here!

- As a headsup, charge up front is enabled!

Who is Anomalous Algorithm?
A fairly shy writer that is incredibly excited to share their work with all of you! They don't have a whole lot to say about themself aside from this: the story of Anomalous Algorithm began with a kid whose greatest joy was reading every single thing they could get their hands on. Everything. No matter what. Over time though, things began to stand out. Few books starred characters with skintones like theirs - or darker. Fewer starred characters that shared anything else with them - mental illness, gender identity, physical disability... And the few that bothered to mention a character might be like them? Usually relegated those characters to villain roles.

Anomalous Algorithm decided that this was, frankly, bullshit. They - I - still think so. None of those features make or break a character that can be heroic, that's worth the main character spot. Not a one of them.

To be an utter cheese and quote two particular movies -

"The circumstances of one's birth is irrelevant, it's what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are." --- Mewtwo, Pokemon: The First Movie

"Your story may not have such a happy beginning, but that doesn't make you who you are. It is the rest of your story, who you choose to be." --- The Soothsayer, Kung Fu Panda 2

And honestly, that's one of the most major takeaways for Corroded Circuitry as well. The main character cast is varied in numerous ways, and their choices matter. If they view themselves as heroes or villains, no matter - their choices are what starts the ripples. And even a tiny ripple may grow into a wave.

Why Patreon?
Anomalous Algorithm's health issues render them unable to work. They still consistently send out applications, but it always comes down to their health issues making them a liability where they live. So, patreon! I would love nothing more than to be able to focus on creating content for all of you, and patreon seems a good way to do that!

What do I get for being a Patreon?
Anomalous Algorithm's undying gratitude for one! The rest - well that depends a bit on what tier you decide to pledge on. You get everything from the tiers below the one you pledge to!

At the one dollar tier, you get access to Very Short Stories 365, expanded! Some of these may even be recycled later on as parts of canon, in which case they'll get a comment under them when that update goes live!

At the three dollar tier, you get access to a weekly drabble/short story, posted on Thursdays! These drabbles and Short Stories will stay Patreon exclusive for one month and then they get posted to the Official Site! Most of these are more slice of life than anything else, but they're exclusive for a month!

~For now, until there are patrons at all, I'm only posting for the one dollar and three dollar tier. I'll start putting content up for the other tiers when we get a patron!

At the five dollar tier, not only do you get access to the weekly drabble/short story every Thursday, but sometimes I do little snippets that are only ever slice of life things. These will get posted here, and will stay exclusive until I revisit them to expand them!

At the ten dollar tier, you'll get access to canon AUs! I write these as a warmup, "what if" sort of things. There are coffeeshop AUs, there are assassin AUs and much more! 

If it's a desired option, I can add other tiers!

** As a bonus, if at any time your patreon support reaches $27 - you may submit a username to be used within Corroded Circuitry itself! If it reaches $36 - you may additionally submit a single suggestion about the username! (Read: member of Lodestar. or a member of a corp. or a member of a specific Predator strain). Note, however, that this is the most that you determine for this username, at the $36 mark! You may or may not wind up liking the character that develops from there, and you have no control over their fate.

There is currently no limit to how many usernames may be given via this method.

Currently, Anomalous Algorithm can be found on >>Twitter<<, on the Official >>Corroded Circuitry<< Site, and on >>Ko-fi<<

* Vote in any of the polls that go up!

Transistors
$3 or more per month
Everything a Processor gets, plus:

* Access to a weekly drabble/short story, posted on Thursdays! These drabbles and Short Stories will stay Patreon exclusive for one month and then they get posted to the Official Site!

Nanochip
$5 or more per month
Everything that Processors and Transistors get, plus:

* Sneak peeks at things this Algorithm draws, generally weapon and object designs!

* Slice of life snippets that aren't big enough to be the weekly update!
