So have you figured it out?
You can’t win this fight; Welcome to the Family.

It’s finally finished! This poster is a gift for all the incredible people behind the Strex Family, who have been nothing but kind and encouraging. It’s inspired by classic Vanity Fair magazine spreads; maybe they made Corporate Family of the Year. Consider it a thank-you for making Luciano and I feel so welcome to join the fun. ♥

Faces from the second image down: Sergio, Ricardo, Luciano, Jezabel, Antonio, Santiago, Diego and Divina.

(P.S. to the muns, drop me a message. I have a file for you. :])

THE STREXCORP MASQUERADE : OCTOBER EVENT

Ricardo Vega, President of StrexCorp Synernists Inc, is holding a Company Masquerade this month to celebrate harvest holidays and to maintain company morale. There will be music, ballroom dancing, spiked punch, and the looming threat of re-education for anyone who dares spoil the atmosphere. This will be a two-week event beginning on October 15th, following the release of the new Night Vale episode, and run until the official in-character date of the event, Halloween!

Event rules:

  • Anyone can participate! StrexCorp employees are required to attend, and are allowed to bring one or two outside guests, provided they pass all company security checks and aren’t going to cause trouble. (This doesn’t mean you have to play if your character is Strex! no one has to participate, but it’s an excuse.)
  • Starting October 15th, simply tag your posts with #StrexCorp Masquerade to have your thread considered part of the event.
  • strexcorpsguardian and myself (smilingindoctrinator) will be moderating the event. That is to say, if a thread is deemed inappropriate, unrealistic, or otherwise bending the corporate rules too much to be believable, we reserve the right to veto that incident from canon.
  • Always ask to join someone’s thread! Just because everyone is in the same hall doesn’t mean people don’t have plans among themselves. Be courteous to your fellow writers.
  • If your character is attending the Masquerade, they MUST be in a mask! Not a halloween costume–they shouldn’t be dressed as full-furry werewolves or sheet ghosts. Think fancy dress party with masks inspired by whatever you want (So a black suit with a long-nosed wolf mask and a moon-patterned tie, a cloak and a fanged porcelain mask to mimic a vampire, etc). Be creative!

Some suggestions to consider:

The Masquerade is the main event, but feel free to make up your own little sub-plots around it! Maybe your character is helping out with catering, or wants to dance with someone and can’t get their attention, has to go home sick, or gets up to some scandalous behaviour behind the curtains. You can also have your characters make observations on other peoples’ threads by tagging your post with #Masquerade Commentary as well as the URLs of the participants and the event tag. Send starters and plot ideas to other people participating! Draw your character’s mask and costume! Write drabbles about the event! Basically, have fun!

Last but not least–if you intend to participate, all you have to do is reblog this post and consider yourself on the guest list!

anonymous asked:

If you're going to go correcting people, why don't you give an explanation of the Strex family?

Strex Family (by age)

Ricardo - 46 (physically) strexcorpking
Patriarch of The Family, CEO/President of the West Division of Strex, archangel.

Sergio - 35 eruditexperimenter
Head of re-education and Ricardo’s heir. It being groomed to take over for the patriarch. Not much is known about his past, except that he has been extensively re-educated (all the siblings from this point on have with the exception of the twins).

Luciano - 33 smilingindoctrinator
Works in re-education under Sergio. Uses therapy to get his re-education to work, rather than simply relying on drugs. He is mysophobic, giggles when stressed or nervous, and has Synesthesia.

Diego - 33 scienceandstrex (ask/gif blog) themoreyoustrex (rp/gif blog)
Works in (heads?) the Technology and Robotics department. The nanobots that are in Luc’s blood stream are his creation. He’s an alcoholic and has violent tendencies. Themoreyoustrex portrays him as sociopathic as well.

Divina - 33 mistress-strex
CFO. Divina has a sense of morality that has begun to clash with the practices of Strex. She and Diego are yin and yang. Where Diego can be charming but is ultimately only in it for himself, Divina is a brat who genuinely cares for others.

**The twins are creations of Ricardo and Sergio, and contain some of their DNA. They are roughly 15 (and sometimes exhibit the mannerisms of that age), but are physically (and for the most part mentally) 33.

Santiago - 30 strexecutioner
MD. Santiago is another “heart of gold” family member. He was beaten for reasons unknown in the past and was left permanently crippled. He suffers from nightmares and crippling paranoia as a result, to the point in which he fears leaving the house on a regular basis.

Antonio - 28 oh-cecil-oh (isn’t letting me mention, so here’s a link.))
Antonio is the family member I know the least about. He has a strong preference for knives over guns, and is very protective of Jezzy.

Jezebel - 18 strexcorpslittlemouse
The baby of the family, Jezzy is currently studying re-education. She has a bad stutter and black-out episodes whenever overly stressed or nervous. During her episodes she can become very violent.

**There is a high probability that Antonio and Jezzy are actually related. They are both blonde and were re-educated at the same time. De-educated Jezzy has been known to deny the rest are her family, but still call Antonio ‘brother’.

Bonus! - Here’s a link to a list I’ve done that includes non-family characters and explanations!

((This is a very incomplete explanation. Each family member is a complex character with an extensive background, personal life, and set of motivations. If you want more information on any of them I would be happy to share what I know, but I would suggest going to talk to the mun. They’re all wonderful, kind people.))

anonymous asked:

How much would someone have to pay you to get you to, say, make an updated list detailing the Strex Family as it currently stands?

((There really haven’t been too many changes since my last list, but here goes nothing. If you want information on people who aren’t specifically siblings you’ll need to specify, please!))

Ricardo - 46 (physically) strexcorpsguardian
Patriarch of The Family, CEO/President of the West Division of Strex, archangel. Is generally portrayed as fulfilling all the ‘dad’ stereotypes (bad jokes, fun loving, protective of his family). Has a darker, more sadistic side that rarely comes out to play, and is also a  secret agent working to take down Strex.  

Sergio - 35 eruditexperimenter
Head of re-education and Ricardo’s heir. Is being groomed to take over for the patriarch. Not much is known about his past, except that he has been extensively re-educated (all the siblings from this point on have with the exception of the twins). He has a soft spot for children, and an ‘on’ stage that not much has been revealed about. Something to do with knock out gas that oozes from his mouth.

Luciano - 33 smilingindoctrinator
Works in re-education under Sergio. Uses therapy to get his re-education to work, rather than simply relying on drugs. He is mysophobic, giggles when stressed or nervous, and has Synesthesia. He’s being indoctrinated as a disciple. More on how this will affect his relationship with certain holier relatives is to be revealed.

Diego - 33 themoreyoustrex
Heads the Technology and Robotics department. The nanobots that are in Luc’s blood stream are his creation, as is Daniel. He’s an alcoholic, also has violent and sociopathic tendencies. However, once he loves someone he is incredibly dedicated/devoted to them. Everyone else is fair game unless a God steps in and dictates otherwise.

Divina - 33 mistress-strex
CFO. Divina has a sense of morality that has begun to clash with the practices of Strex. How this will play out in the grand scheme of things will be interesting, especially given that she now as a husband and child at home.

**The twins are creations of Ricardo and Sergio, and contain some of their DNA. They are roughly 15 (and sometimes exhibit the mannerisms of that age), but are physically 33 (and for the most part mentally) 33.

Santiago - 30 strexecutioner
MD. Santiago is another “heart of gold” family member. He was beaten for reasons unknown in the past and was left permanently crippled. He suffers from nightmares and crippling paranoia as a result, to the point in which he fears leaving the house on a regular basis. Hobbies include scaring children and small animals with his cane, and stealing organs.

Antonio - 28 antonio-ofstrex
Antonio is heads the bioweapons division. He is partial to knives, and like Diego can be incredibly violent. He enjoys releasing potentially deadly and often outdated dieses on unsuspecting populations. 

Caesar - 25 lucentsynthesist
 Not much is known about Caesar’s induction into the family. However, this reeducator heads an underground (literally) division that specializes in developing techniques to use on those who need the extra - nudge, shall we say. Among his greatest success stories are Kevin. On the downside, he has athletic anorexia and an odd obsession with perfection.

Jezebel - 18
DECEASED

**Antonio and Jezzy are actually related. They are both blonde and were re-educated at the same time. De-educated Jezzy has been known to deny the rest are her family, but still call Antonio ‘brother’.

**Santiago (Noah) and Caesar are brothers.

Strex Family: Rings of Hell

First Circle (unbaptized): Jezebele
Those who are not bad, merely victims of never having been offered the chance to come to faith.

“That having no hope, we live in longing.” Canto IV, line 32

Second Circle (lustfull): Divina
Not merely sins of the flesh, but sins of love. Divina betrays her family by marrying the being who ruined their plans. 

“She so embraced lechery that she declared it justified.” Canto IV, line 48

Third Circle (gluttony): Luciano
The love of opulence and material things.

“Your city, so full of envy that the sack spills over, once held me.” Canto VI, line 44

Fourth Circle (spenders & hoarders): Antonio

Fortune, like any other God, foresees, judges, and rules her appointed realm.” Canto VII, line 76

Fifth Circle (wrathful & sullen): Noah
Can you think of a better description of his personality?

“No goodness whatever adorning his memory. His shade is furious.” Canto VIII, line 44

Sixth Circle (heretics): Caesar
Some people just can’t accept the fate their God dictates to them.

“Why do you kick against that will whose end cannot be thwarted?” Canto IX, line 84

Seventh Circle (sins of violence): Diego
Does this even require explanation?

“These are the tyrants given to blood and plunder. Here they lament the merciless harm they did.” Canto XII, line 98

Eight Circle (sins of fraud): Sergio
Pretty much all of his relationships are based on some form of deception. 

“[nothing] could overcome my longing for experience of the world, of human vice and virtue.” Canto XXVI, line 93

Ninth Circle (sins of betrayal): Ricardo
A backstabbing businessman if there ever was one. There’s a few - other - reasons that will eventually be revealed. 

“I watched the others fall till all were dead… I groped over my brood - calling to them though I had watched them die.” Canto XXXIII, line 67
