Aisha by Death in Vegas - a great tune - I'd drop the YT vid in, but it won't go with the story.

Just watched a video of it. Good fun. Not a perfect alignment, but some surprisingly relevant themes. Thanks for turning me on to that :).

I just watched Aisha for the first time on the yt playback there. It doesn't really fit with how I remember Death In Vegas banging that tune out loud on the headphones, but Aisha fkn Rocks!

Well, new story and new characters are always interesting to see.
What I really like in this bit is the very conflicting emotions it brings to the table: the opening lines of "how I met her" makes it sound like a sort of romantic memory, but the following reactions from the narrator are anything but. There's a very palpable aura of menace to the whole story that, strangely enough, is enhanced by how Tonje didn't seem to notice. The panther analogy is pretty interesting because it ties in to what I was thinking before: a character whose casual strength (although she doesn't seem to be superhuman yet) is apparent, but not unnnatural. This kind of deal skips past any kind of rational disbelief -- like seeing a cheerleader lifting a car -- and hits straight to the instincts: you look at her and you know that she means business.

Interesting new story and I really like Mace. It's so refreshing to come across a character who is professional and secure in himself instead of being ruled by his ego.

Mace should continue to impress, hopefully. I do love me some competence porn :). He has ego, but as you say, it's not the boss of him. As Tonje's direct boss and sometimes idol, he's got some weight to carry.

Thanks for the feedback! :side:

Hey,
Been swamped working on my Patreon page, but I have been tinkering with a bit of a rewrite for Best. Day. Ever. I'm looking to split it into two parts with some substantial changes and embellishment to the activities at the masquerade.

Until it's ready, here's a new scene with Sylvia scratching a very important itch. :)

I've been wildly occupied writing for my RPG Patreon, but I have been trying to set aside a little time for fun. I've been thinking more about illustrating some of my stories, particularly Best Day Ever. But Fiona's been on my mind too :)...

Glad to hear that. Do you have a link to the patreon, or is it something totally unrelated?

My Patreon is for a tabletop RPG I'm designing/writing. The system supports several near-future and sci-fi settings I've created. I did release a small 'street-level superheroes' article for it recently (modeling the Defenders series on Netflix) so you can make superstrong bulletproof ubergirls :super: (and they're even balanced to play alongside other 'normal' characters :laugh:). You'd see some of the same world-building and character development skills that go into my stories here but its more about creating a toolbox for roleplaying games :).

So this is probably the version of B.D.E. I'll try to illustrate. It's a little more tightly scripted and strips out the notion of Sylvia being in flux, updating her wish mid-delivery. It also preserves a bit of the fictionite for later parts. Hot later parts if we're all lucky.

Wow. That was amazing. Thank you for sharing.

Everyone wants to be a beast, until it's time to do what real beasts do.

I ended up re-building Sylvia from scratch in Daz over the weekend (new tools, new skills :)). I'm not ready to start full scenes quite yet, but she showed up for the lighting test and seemed rather pleased with herself.

Thank you, thank you. I've kept at it with the editing and refinement. It's cleaned up nicely over the last few days :)

Thanks! I'm hoping to do some images that directly align with the :super: terrible :super: trio's :super: adventures soonish.

So... does anyone have a favorite part? :woohoo:
