If anything happens to the Scout, he brought it upon himself.

I did not ask to be followed into the woods.  I did not want for him to chase me or to meet up with my old colleagues, but of course that is exactly what happened.  I cannot trouble myself about it.  It is not my fault, and he cannot be my friend anymore because Herr Gray probably would not like that for obvious reasons.  Not that he wants to be my friend, but that is beside the point.

"As known in the West, Mephala is the demon prince of murder, sex, and secrets. All of these themes contain subtle aspects and violent ones (assassination/genocide, courtship/orgy, tact/poetic truths); Mephala is understood paradoxically to contain and integrate these contradictory themes." — Vivec and Mephala

Ah dear Sister…the only one of the Daedric Princes that truly understands the power of Knowledge and what it can do to others.

The sarcastic fringehead (Neoclinus blanchardi) is a footlong fish that lives off the Pacific coast of North America. When unthreatened, the fringehead’s visage is fairly unremarkable. But if a marine predator attempts to dislodge a fringehead from its crevasse, the fish will race into action, brandishing its frightening Predator-like mouth at the interloper.

DYSTOPIA! CHAPTER ONE: THE MASK

Hey there people who follow me!  If any of you have been reading my TF2 fanseries Of Metal Men and are looking for other stuff to read, well, I have a new series that has been stewing in my brain for years if you want to check it out called Dystopia!

Edmund Dauger has been kept at Paradise Reformation Center 174 for over a year now under the “care” of Doctor Harriet Huxley. Follow him and the other denizens of Paradise as they try to escape or to prevent escapes, to subvert authority or uphold it, and most of all find answers to questions they wish they hadn’t asked.

Excerpt:

Of all the people that could have been lurking in the filing room after hours, it had to be Doctor Harriet Huxley.

Ed held his breath as she prowled past the closet he was hiding in.  He only saw a sliver of her through the crack in the door, a slightly denser blackness passing through the dim space, but there was no mistaking her for anyone else.  None of the other reformation center personnel had been wearing dark clothes that day, and he thought he caught a blur of silver hair.

The footsteps paused once she was out of sight, and he closed his eyes.  ’Keep walking, keep walking, I may never get this chance again…’

The door shut with a quiet thud.  Ed waited, his eyes still closed.  It wasn’t until he heard the snap of a lock and her footsteps fading from earshot that he eased the closet door open.

oh, so when tumblr feminists embroider swear words and occult symbols onto things, it’s “subversive” and “edgy,” but when I do it, I’m a “terrible surgeon” whose being “sued for malpractice”

If you haven’t read it yet, please for the love of god check out The Buggiest’s fic series Of Metal Men. It takes a slightly different twist on the TF2 comic books, going much more in depth on the experience of Engie and is absolutely amazing.

The TF2 fanbase has some truly lovely people in it.  Just thought it ought to be said.

If you like regularly updated original stories about mildly dystopian societies and the people who’ve fallen through the system’s cracks, keep your eyes open.  I might get something posted this weekend.
