another thing that bugs me, besides the obvious using Seb as a weapon, is when she says not to touch him. robert has been nothing but loving and caring and she makes it sound like she just found out he hurt him
robert’s been a massive idiot but rebecca saying “don’t you dare touch him” and telling robert he’s never gonna see his son again is a bit extreme, he’s not gonna hurt his son jfc him being an idiot is no reason for you to stop him seeing his son
Because I feel the need to say it again, as people clearly aren’t understanding what I was trying to say.
Robert Sugden has been abused in his life, his abuse is different to the abuse Aaron suffered, but that doesn’t mean it is lesser or more, it’s just different. They are both bad. The fact that people are literally comparing abuse victims is baffling to me.
Do people realise that comparing abuse victims would literally make one persons experience less important than another. That someone should have a less reaction to it because it wasn’t as ‘bad’. This isn’t the case. A victim should never feel like being abused wasn’t bad because somebody else’s abuse was ‘worse’. All abuse is awful.Period.
Robert Sugden has done bad things in his life, so has Rebecca and so has Aaron. My point is that violence isn’t an acceptable reaction to bad things. I’m not, nor have ever said that Robert is an angel who has done no wrong. He never will be.
I’m sorry if people feel that I was comparing, if you took that from what I wrote, please know that it’s not what I thought, nor what I believe was written in my posts.
@finnbarton@lobotomite I hope this makes my views clear. I wasn’t trying to be disrespectful of any abuse. Honestly can’t believe that was taken from my posts and I apologise for the fact it was, but it wasn’t what I wrote.
((It’s taken me a few days to finally say anything about it, but, yeah, I finally somehow reached 200 followers. Dunno how the heck I’ve managed that, considering I’m not quite as active on here as I used to be. And I’m sorry for that, I’ve been more focused on a RP group I’m a part of on DA, so my muse for Kei, Kein and Robert have been at a low.
But, no matter how active or not I am, I am NEVER quitting this blog. So, don’t worry, I’m around. I just don’t post a lot xD;;;;
Anyway, I also want to thank some particular people for sticking with me as friends in this community;
They are all beautiful, handsome and freaking amazing people, and without them, I don’t think I would’ve stuck around in the MSA community as along as I have. SO GO FOLLOW AND LOVE ON ALL OF THEM DANGIT!! If ya want to ‘course~))
I went digging through the Level 18 gibberish and sorted out all the dialogue into a manageable manuscript if anyone is interested in reading this secret wild ride. None of the dialogue is labeled so I did my best to interpret who was saying what so any mistakes are my bad. It took a few hours to put together but I felt like some people would like more than just a summary so here is the full text:
MC will be short for Main Character or your player.

Level 18- Joseph Bad Ending or True Ending ( Who knows? )
This appears to take place after MC and Joseph Christiansen engage in sex in the yacht, except you don’t wake up to what you expect. This takes place in Cult_Dungeon1.

START: You’re A Monster
Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaawn. What time is it? Must have been asleep for ages. I wonder what will happen now that Mary is gone? What about Joseph’s kids? And how will Amanda feel about all this? That’s what matters… . Well, we all have each other. I guess time will tell, right? Better get up and greet the day.
Am I tied up?! What the hell?! How did I get here? What’s going on?! Joseph? Anybody?
You’re probably just dreaming. Why would there be a… Don’t panic… . a dungeon. An evil dungeon. Why would there be an evil dungeon here? This can’t be real. Maybe I had too much Twilight Rouge. I’m dreaming, or something.
I found the cult ending thing in the game files but it was all jubled and in the wrong order so i did my best to transcribe it (also i accidentally deleted half of this post the first time I wrote this and i am d y i n g)
Destroy the idea that Robert would have been a better husband to Lyanna than he was to Cersei. Destroy the idea that Cersei is the reason he was an awful and abusive husband. The abused is not to blame for their own abuse. Putting the responsibility for the abuser’s actions on the abused is actually a tactic used by abusers to justify their actions and to control and subjugate their partners. Do not buy into Robert’s rhetoric because Robert is fundamentally characterized by his inability to bear responsibility for his actions and his tendency to justify his fuckups by putting it on other people.
Destroy the idea that Lyana knew and was absolutely fine with Rhaegar fighting in the name of the mad man who murdered her family, or that she willingly approved of staying in Dorne while he went to war against one of her two surviving brothers and to subjugate the people who rose in defense of the Stark of Winterfell and gave their lives to bring them justice.
Destroy the idea that Elia thought nothing of Rhaegar running with another woman just because she is Dornish or that her potential knowledge of what he planned makes his actions alright or defensible. Destroy the idea that she put his precious prophecy ahead of her own children’s well-being and lives.
Here’s a novel concept: how about we stop woobifying Robert and Rhaegar by scapegoating Cersei, Elia and Lyanna?
Robert Downey Jr.’s been on a pedestal with me since I was a very young man. I’ve just always admired him and been a fan. And I’ve said for years and years and years that I hope the crossover happened because I thought that Drax would have such great interactions with Tony Stark and Robert Downey Jr. And it just all kind of came to fruition and actually it’s gonna happen and it’s good. It’s really good! It’s better than I ever thought it would ever be. I’m really excited.
Immediately (there’s chemistry between us). And here’s the thing– I went to the premiere in London for Avengers 2, and Robert went out of his way to come and meet me and say how much he loved me in the first (Guardians) film and that meant the world to me. So that put me at kind of an automatic comfort level with him.
So as soon as we hit the stage, man, there was no pressure there, there were no walls, I just felt like this guy was very supportive of me and I felt very comfortable with him. I think that’s just him. He’s a very giving actor all across the board. But just for me personally, I felt totally at ease with him and it makes for great chemistry when you’re comfortable with someone.”
DAVE BAUTISTA, when asked “in the Infinity War set, is there anyone in particular that you were most excited to meet?” (July 15, 2017).
The High Court has ruled that Scott Ludlam, Larissa Waters, Fiona Nash, Barnaby Joyce, and Malcolm Roberts have all been invalidly elected and therefore ineligible for Parliament. Matt Canavan and Nick Xenophon have been deemed safe and will keep their seats (though
Xenophon has already decided to resign and run for South Australian state parliament). Ludlam and Waters have already resigned before this. Roberts’ seat will likely go down the ticket to Fraser Anning, who only recently avoided bankruptcy (which would’ve made him also ineligible to be a Senator). Fiona Nash is the deputy leader of the Nationals so that’s just unfortunate for them.
And now the most important part of this: Barnaby Joyce, deputy PM and known Kiwi.
Joyce being the only member of the House of Reps instead of the Senate in the Citizen 7 means that the government no longer has a majority and there’ll be a by-election in Joyce’s seat (likely to be scheduled for December 2nd). Joyce can legally renounce his dual citizenship and re-run but if he/the LNP loses the seat that destroys their one seat majority and either need to form a coalition with other MPs (unlikely) or go to an early federal election.
SO THAT’S EXCITING! TUNE IN NEXT WEEK FOR: WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK IS HAPPENING, DEAR GOD, POLITICS NEVER ENDS AND NEITHER DOES THIS WHIRLWIND OF BIZARRE TURN OF EVENTS THAT IT CREATES!
So from looking up sources, refreshing twitter, tumblr, and reddit in search for what is going on, i have a pretty good understanding of what this secret ending with Joseph is about.
I believe how it started was someone trying to find out if there was a good ending with Joseph. As of now, (7/23/17) all i know is that there is a ending where Joseph has sex with you, and then goes back to his wife. I heard that there was a second ending where you stay his side hoe, but i haven’t gotten that ending nor seen anyone else get it. I guess while data mining someone had found and posted the dialog where you wake up after having sex with Joseph, you are in a underground ‘dungeon’.
The dialog goes on to show that Joseph is not human at all, but some sort of demon. He calls his kids ‘vessels’ that are apart of him. Joseph tells your dad that you are underground below the cul-de-sac and anyone who has ever seen this place has died. Joseph then says:
“…Just think of it as the real Margarita Zone.”
Then Joseph admits that the reason why all the dads in the area are single is because he hunted them down and was using their power to fuel this entity(?)
It doesn’t stop there, Joseph goes on to say:
“Now you’ll excuse me, there’s some other business I need to attend to. Your dear friend Robert has been awfully worried about you. I think it’s about time that miserable drunk gets one last visit from the Dover Ghost.’’
After this Mary shows up and sets you free, you run and run and make it back home somehow. Once you get in Amanda greets you and things seem normal…until you ask her when he birthday is and you realize that Joseph made a fake Amanda. The “demon” Amanda turns to ash and this is followed by you trying to stab Joseph with the knife that Robert gave you. You drop the knife in the struggle, where Mary grabs the knife and stabs Joseph. His children attack him and possibly eat him(?). You end up waking up in bed and told by Amanda that the yacht you were on sank. Joseph was found to be taking money from the church and was no where to be found.
Detective Saul Graves comes in and tells you he saw the underground dungeon himself and that his own wife died mysteriously.
Now, for the speculation. Everything above was found IN THE GAME.
People started to make some connections to Robert and Joseph. Robert has a odd looking tattoo that he doesn’t want to talk about. Joseph has the same tattoo, and that symbol keeps showing up in the game.
On Joseph’s walls…
This is the cult’s symbol. Its all through the game, and in the actual dungeon.
The symbol is even on the build your dad clothing options…
Not to mention the times robert warns you about joseph and how they had some twisted past together.
People having been saying that this ending was a Halloween DLC.
I would like an answer as to: 1.) Who said it was a DLC and were the screenshot proof is. 2.) If it is a Halloween DLC, why is the cult symbol EVERYWHERE IN GAME. 3.) Why would they have a DLC for a game that just came out a few days ago..
I’ve seen people also say that it was something the game devs wanted to take out, thinking it was too much for a silly queer dating sim. This is more believable. I heard that one of the devs is into the horror genre, but this isn’t confirmed. Even so, why would they leave so much code in for data miners to find and cause people to get upset over. If they didn’t want to upset anyone why did they leave so much in for people to find?
As what I've seen and heard, at the moment there is no way of getting this ending. The code is apparently broken and wont start like the other endings.
These could all could be possible ideas….If there wasn’t a steam achievement out for “Escape from Margarita Zone” that no one has gotten.
Along with that achievement, there’s “World’s okayest Dad” which no one out of the thousands of people playing can unlock. ( sidenote: someone on reddit said they got the achievement and wouldn’t say how, but looking deeper into it they seemed to have hacked the achievement and not gotten it ‘naturally’)
I think that you can get the achievement and this chapter 18, cult ending. It might be a “true” ending, but that’s up to the person playing to decide.
HoodiePanda hosted a stream where he said himself that there is a possible Mary bug that the devs have confirmed which might be the reason we cant unlock this ending. This guy has played 24+ hours on this game and i think i can agree.
Okay, so I’ve gone through Dream Daddy’s files, and have found the cult ending! I’m pretty sure you can’t actually get this ending, but I wanted to share it. I know I got frustrated trying to find it online.
Here’s a list of my favourites! Organised by genre, with very broad summaries. All of them have HEA, all the m/m romances are the central ones.
Names in bold have POC protagonists, names in cursive have disabled protagonists (be it physical disability, mental illness or chronic illness). In series with multiple couples, it’s usually one or more.
Feel free to ask me about triggers for any of them!

Prince by C.S. Pacat

a lot of misinformation flying around.
