Challenge #02461-F271: Works Every Time

So, based on your story about visiting aliens having to hover their hands over something to check if it was hot, imagine if one alien (or maybe even human) uses it as a pick-up line. Like, they hover a hand over someone's wrist or hand and they just say "hot." I think it would be cute! -- Anon Guest

Love is many things, but it was never logical, reasoned, or well thought. In literary terms, love is that idiot who dives into a midden for the laughs and comes out with the golden crown. Love is the friends made along the way. So it is when a Havenworlder repeatedly crushes on Humans.

That is, they develop sincere and soft affection for humans. There are very few Havenworlders who can even attempt to crush a Human. Even when they do, the general reaction is (a) positive, and (b) some comment regarding how soft/fluffy/cute/huggable the Havenworlder in question is at the time. They don't even get mad.

P'taal had what could easily be considered a fatal flaw in that they found Humans to be very attractive indeed. This was a problem because many of them could literally crush them without so much as a second thought. Havenworlders have never had to evolve much in the way of defences, before they got out into the Galactic Alliance. It wasn't much to be concerned about. Humans would rather break their own heads than harm a Havenworlder.

::insert Law&Order doink-doink::

Toasty's released another thirty-second update to her new WIP music video, so you know what that means. Yes, folks, I'm writing another 3K in the novelisation of the video in progress because my demons will not leave me alone until I do.

It's such a thing to be possessed by a story idea.

It doesn't happen often, but it's a ride when it does. Teh pln for today includes a money run, the mandatory story, an attempt

Challenge #02460-F270: Like Humans Do

"Don't worry I based this defence system off a deathworlder immune system"

As I ask in a shaken voice, "What kind?"

It bares its teeth, that I later I learned it was a sign of affection. "Humans"

(A quick lesson to the immune system https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQGOcOUBi6s) -- Anon Guest

The thing about Deathworlder immune systems, is that they evolved to deal with Deathworlder problems. As such, they could be viewed as needlessly complicated. They could also be

Aftermath, Part 2

So I managed to get to sleep real early, yesterday. This meant that I was no longer able to sleep at sometime closer to 10PM. Which, in turn, meant that I was prepped and ready for Toasty's stream, this morning. Yay for me.

Next week, the stream isn't on, so I'm slightly screwed if I find myself awake at the wee small hours of the morning.

I'll deal with that embuggerance if I get there. The trick will be remembering to reset

Challenge #02459-F269: Endless Fascination

While assisting the Archivaas, Shayde discovers Dr. Pimple Popper. -- Anon Guest

[AN: Trigger warning for gore and surgery for that entire channel. Go in prepared for disfiguring nastiness on all counts]

It was fairly common to find Shayde entranced in the viewing lounges of the Archivaas video archives. It was not that common to find her there without food or beverages within spill-safe containers. This viewing had her sitting almost immobile and staring intently at the screen.

Rael knew better than

Aftermath, Part 1

Fun was had, last night. Fun will be had during the wee small hours of tomorrow's AM. I will be WRECKED, but I'm going to enjoy it.

There are the remains of two cakes in the house. One is almost doomed, the other is only initially doomed. I've gained some significant weight, and I might diet all through the rest of this month and the next one... but not today.

Today, I have treats.

I also have a Tiefling Monk who's basically

"Okay, I'm going to ask again, and this time you better give me an answer that makes some fragging sense... HOW IN THE NAME OF ALL SANITY DO YOU 'MISPLACE' AN EIGHT-FOOT-TALL PIG-MAN?!" -- Anon Guest

"Okay, firstly, the correct term is Peccaroid..."

"Actually, firstly, the matter at hand is how the hell they managed to go missing. If the cops see them, they're going to wind up in some super-luau."

"Or on the force?" Lucas attempted a grin, but the joke

My age is a Gilbert and Sullivan lyric

How long have I lived?

::aria pose:: (sings) Forty-seven years! Forty-seven years...

::returns to normal:: Yes, folks, I am part of the Pirates of Penzance for exactly one trip around the sun. Yay?

I gorged on sushi, last night, finishing up with cake and ice cream. This morning, I woke at 1AM with a panic attack. Fun.

I still can't easily get back to sleep, so I used the opportunity to get halfway along in Episode 14 of Inter-Mission. I should start

Challenge #02457-F267: One Link

I am not determined to be incompetent. I just want to feel safe. -- Anon Guest

Marvin nursed his arm, which he was told was only a sprain. He could only see out of one eye because his friends and allies in the Malitovs had given him one heck of a shiner for mucking up the capture of the wizard and their pet Kobold. Now, to prove his worth to his gang, he had to guard them. The wizard was bound and

Birthmas Shenanigans

We have a new Session Zero this Friday because our DM couldn't actually handle two separate games at once. I grok. I'm considering the Storm King's Thunder campaign paused until further notice.

Mayhem and I are planning to be the Element of Chaos together for the new campaign. Check out our plotting:

Plan A: Stripebark the Treant Druid (him) and Cobalt the Kobold Rogue (me)

The former is actually the home of the latter because we're into those shenanigans.

If our new

Challenge #02456-F266: Please Explain

I like my women how I like my TV... thin, highly defined, turned on and flat against my bedroom wall

I like my women like I like my whiskey. 12 years old, and mixed up with coke.

I like my women how the age of consent in Japan is 13, LEGAL -- Some Gross Asshole Anon

The three men at the table laughed at the joke. They were the only ones laughing. Their server was less than perfect at putting their plates

Oh boy...

So I'm kind of rolling in some schadenfreude a little. See, the Muppet is seeking to legitimize his stolen "leadership" by discrediting the probe into the cheating his campaign did in order to get him in.

Nevermind that he's been committing treason daily by ripping up every piece of paper he's handled in office... (ahem)

There's a saying, "One often meets ones fears on the path one takes to avoid them." There's also: "Be sure thy sins will find thee out."

"I would like to acquaint your facial features, with the fundamentals of a brick wall, at high velocity, REPEATEDLY." -- Anon Guest

"Thrown or wielded?" challenged the Human.

This was not the expected reaction to a threat. K'rux startled for a second or two. "You are meant to be intimidated by my bulk and violence," they protested. "That will make you go away."

The Human raised one of their furry eyebrows. "You're new, aren't you? Haven't had the entire introduction to the

OK, OK, OK...

I've got this. I know I've got this. I can handle this bullshit. I've got this...

Looks like I'm having my birthday at home this week because our lovely DM needs an extended breather by no longer managing one of the games. It's likely to be the one I'm in because I have an extended history of Killing RP's. Alongside blaming myself for things beyond my control.

I've flung Adapting towards another potential agent and, if it's complete and total radio silence

Challenge #02455-F265: Murder Most Satisfying

What if someone was addicted to murder? They had to kill someone one out of necessity, but enjoyed it too much. Now, they want to stop, but it's hard. -- Anon Guest

You know all those hokey old serial killer dramas? The ones where the murderer always says that killing's a rush? They were right. There's no thrill like it, you know.

I know that watching the light die from that bastard's eyes was the closest I could get to heaven without
