“Maybe I got tired of seeing Kevin bend. Or maybe it was the zombies.” When Andrew just stared at him, Neil shrugged and said, “A few weeks back you and Renee argued contingency plans for a zombie apocalypse. She said she’d focus on survivors. You said you’d go back for some of us. Five of us,” Neil said, splaying his fingers at Andrew. “You weren’t counting Abby or Coach. Since you trust Renee to handle the rest of the team, I’m guessing the last spot is for Dobson.” He knew Andrew wouldn’t answer that, so he dropped his hand and said, “I didn’t say anything then because I knew I’d only look out for me when the world went to hell. I don’t want to be that person anymore. I want to go back for y o u.”
Casual Prompto! Look at him wearing his boyfriend best friend’s clothes! D’awww how gross, they match ahahaaha! Here we go something that isn’t quick this time! Sister piece to the Noctis one I did a while back!
I want to run a Chronicles of Darkness game where the PCs and major antagonists are a bunch of vampires, beasts, sin eaters, etc who join an over-the-top pro wrestling league, and act 100% upfront about all their supernatural stuff as if it’s part of the wrestling storyline.
“Yeah, this in an important match for me, because Bloodfist was sired by the same vampire that killed MY sire, and I feel like I gotta, y’know, avenge that. I just hope that The Fightin’ Nephandus, our mutual rival, doesn’t use this as an opportunity to try and steal the Sacred Moonstone of Immortality that’s currently set in the championship belt, ‘cause then whoever wins here is gonna have to take her on to end the Eon of Darkness Unrelenting.”
The producers are confused, and then concerned, and eventually terrified, but nothing they say can convince anyone that this isn’t part of the show. Of course, ratings are waaay up, so they end up just working around it the best they can. I imagine one of the match commentators would just lose his wits every time, while the other somehow takes everything in stride, like:
“Wow, Rob, it looks like Bloodfist is already using his signature technique! He must really want the Fanged Avenger to feel the hurt!”
“Those are real fucking claws, Jeremy! He just sliced that guy’s arm right off, but I guess it’s growing back now because our lives no longer make sense, right?”
“You’re right, Rob, a move like that might have worked against the Menacing Mastigos, but it’s not gonna fly in a vampire grudge match! Bloodfist is trying to call a time-out, but it looks like the Fanged Avenger has used his powers of mental domination on the ref! There’s blood everywhere! What a match!”
