Cargo Pants

So, in our VtM game, one of my players gave another his credit card to buy new pants since she stained hers with blood. She then went off and bought $500 cargo pants.

Victor: Why did you pick these? What do they do? Make you coffee?

Josefina: I don’t know, they look nice.

Victor: *calls his assistant* I need cargo pants apparently worn by the Pope.

Roan: The Pope wears cargo pants?!?!

Raven the Maven - Part II

Author’s Note:  Thanks to my beta @bfl1201 for finding my mistakes.


By Raven’s count, they’d had a fight - or an argument - at least once every two days since she’d become accidentally inseminated with Roan’s sperm.  

It shouldn’t have been the turn-on that it was.  She’d blame the pregnancy hormones, which she blamed for almost everything else, but she was pretty confident that she’d find Roan just as attractive without them.

She was determined to win this latest argument over him missing the ultrasound appointment though, until he came in with a perfectly reasonable excuse.

Well, reasonable when you were the Ice Prince, heir to a giant fortune and had two dedicated paparazzi following you around town.  

“I’m sorry that your mother tried to pin Azedga’s crimes on you and you had to participate in a sting operation,” she began, trying to rein in her temper as she sat in one of the lounge chairs on the balcony of the condo.  Her home was another gift from Roan, complete with a gorgeous view for her and the baby to enjoy, even if today there were more leaves swirling in the air than on the branches of the trees.  " had to be today?“

She had to at least try to win some point of the argument.

“Yes, before she could do more damage to the company,” Roan confirmed with a nod.  "I am sorry about the timing, but this means that she can’t interfere anymore with you either.“

“Well, that’s something,” Raven acknowledged, looking down at her distended belly.  She was only about halfway through the pregnancy but felt like she’d gained a hundred pounds, just from how tired the baby made her all the time.  She smoothed a hand over the bulge and added, “Thank you.  From both of us.”

“You were furious with me,” he replied, sitting down on the chair next to her own, picking up on her contrite tone of voice.

It was one of his annoying habits, to instantly understand her mood. Or greatest talent.  She hadn’t decided which yet.

“I…might have decided not to acknowledge you as the father for about a minute or so there,” she admitted, then fixed her gaze on him in challenge.  

“I would fight that,” he vowed, deadly serious.

“And you would lose.  The law is clear, which is why your lawyers constantly want me to sign that paternity agreement.”

He worked his jaw for a moment.  "I don’t give a shit about the law.  That’s my kid.“

There was something about the way he said it that warmed Raven to the core and soon, she found herself smiling at him.

"I need to know you’re serious about this.  Being a father.  Being there.  I don’t want this kid to ever feel unwanted.  I know you’re busy and important and all that, but if you’re not actually there to be a father…”  

She knew from personal experience how traumatizing that could be.

“I’m not saying I would resort to kidnapping my own child if you didn’t acknowledge me, but I would resort to kidnapping my own child.  If necessary,” he acknowledged with a shrug she knew was anything but nonchalant.  "But I will be there for this child.  I don’t intend to replace my mother at the company, only on the board.  We’ll hire another person to be the CEO.  I am happy to just have a supervisory role because soon, I’ll be a father with other responsibilities.“

It made her smile, his almost mercenary sensibility when it came to the kid.  "Okay then.”

“Okay,” he agreed, mirroring her expression for a moment.  Then he nodded to her abdomen.  "Did the appointment go well?  Is there anything I need to know?“

"I’m fine, the baby’s fine,” Raven informed him.

When she refused to add more, he pressed, “Did you see the baby?  Did they take a picture of the ultrasound?”

“You mean, did I find out the sex?”

He smiled slightly.  "I’m curious about that, but just getting to see the baby…I am sorry I missed that.“  

Roan sounded so disappointed, she decided not to tease him any longer.

Raven picked up the small print-out resting underneath her book on the little table to the side and handed it over.  "Congratulations,” she started to say as he took the picture reverently.

“It’s an asshole.  That right there?” she pointed out with a finger.  "That’s the butt.  Every time the doctor moved the wand around to try and get a better look, the baby would shift and moon us instead.“  Even as she’d been annoyed, she’d felt pretty impressed by the little person growing inside of her.

Roan chuckled, but the smile he turned on her was all pride.  "Really?  I like him already.  Or her.”

“Yeah.  Sounds like my kind of kid,” she agreed, looking down at the grey, white and black blobs that showed them the baby.

“Our kid,” he corrected and when she looked up, she saw his bright blue gaze fixed on her, not the picture.

“Our kid,” she agreed quietly.

Lexa sparing Roan and killing Nia instead is so fucking genius.

Some ‘critics’ like to say that Lexa doesn’t value life. But she does. This is proof that she does. She knows Roan is innocent, she knows he’s just another pawn in the queen’s hands, but she also knows that a life must be taken in this duel. Jus drein jus daun. So instead of killing someone she knows is truly a good person, she kills the one that caused it all, the one that was willing to sacrifice her own son for power. She kills the only genuinely bad person there — Nia. That way, she not only avenges the Skaikru but also Costia and she gives the Ice Nation throne to someone who actually means well. Someone that will do good for ALL their people, not just the Ice Nation. She gives the throne to someone who actually deserves it. At the same time — and this is honestly so fucking genius — she gives the throne to someone that she has already publicly overpowered, so she will NEVER look weak in comparison.
