cultists

Context: PCs just confronted a firewood deliverer who might be a cultist about his cultisty tattoo. Ignatious (party fire wizard) decided to pump the firewood deliverer’s wife for information. After 3 natural 20s he successfully seduces the woman much to the rest of the party’s disgust.

GM (me): Now that Ignatious had had his way with the Scottish firewood deliverer’s beefy wife he-

Ignatious: Achievement get!

Party: *groans*

Emperor Zombie: I’m merely expressing gratitude!

Screw-On Head: Perhaps you might express in apology?

Emperor Zombie: Oh no, he didn’t! Apologize to you? Pardon me if I say poppycock!

Screw-On Head: Then say it!

Emperor Zombie: Poppycock!

@thefingerfuckingfemalefury you should play fallen london instead of Episode, it’s much more up your alley. There’s lesbians, canon trans ppl, friendly tentacle monsters, less friendly hypercapitalist eldritch abominations, and all wrapped up in a setting that is dark and creepy, yet at the same time hilarious.

also it’s huge and open and nonlinear and you can actually do just about anything. And when i say anything i mean that “sell your soul to devils in exchange for mind blowing sex”, “become a cultist of a vengeful god even though everyone tells you it’s a bad idea”, and “travel to an island where you can’t do anything because the clothes you are wearing are literally fighting you” are all actual, canon storylines.

sunset and evening star, and one clear call for me

some AshleyxMiranda for femslash feb, also here on Ao3

~~

Ashley didn’t think much of it the first time she met Miranda at Shepard’s side. As far as she was concerned Miranda was just another Cerberus cultist, with all the wrong ideals and fighting for the wrong things and if she didn’t come back from that suicide mission Shepard seemed hell bent on then it was just one less Cerberus operative to worry about.

The second time she met Miranda things were different however, the woman was no longer wearing the markings of Cerberus and had a tired look in her eyes.

“Shepard told me if I had information about Cerberus’ upcoming mission I should talk to you.” Miranda said, without further explanation and walked past Ashley into her room.

“Shepard got you a message while in incarceration?” Ashley wouldn’t have put it past the Commander but it still seemed bizarre. “Why send you to me?”

Miranda glanced over at her, “Because she knew you were the one person who would hate what Cerberus was doing as much as I’d hated what it’d become.” Miranda clenched her fist, “I believed in them. I did.”

Ashley titled her head, taking in the small reaction that was the only indication of a crack in the foundation that was Miranda Lawson’s tough exterior.

“Tell me what you’ve got then.” She said and gestured to the couch for Miranda to take a seat.

As Miranda did she wondered if all Cerberus agents were taught to sway their hips like that and quietly snorted in her amusement at the idea of it.
