Hello, dear Patrons!

Welcome back to more Subnautical shenanigans; in the last cluster-chapter we met Dumbass, who spent several days alone in a lifepod before venturing out for a little sightseeing. Upon returning to the lifepod, Dumbass discovered that it was a different lifepod and was promptly bashed over the head, bound to a ladder, and threatened with a knife by the occupant. They are now besties and have built a base together. However, they have left the base in a Cyclops, which had not one but TWO dramatic reveals in a cave hidden by vegetation, and are now tootling around in the Void somewhere. Oh, and Crazy Casey managed to cobble together a two-seater Seamoth while they were onboard the Cyclops despite the fact that there would be no way for that to have happened.

And now to pick up where we left off!

Chapter 7: The Grand Reef

EXACTLY where we left off; the last chapter-bundle ended with a stray scene tag/ chapter title.

As soon as we dropped into the ocean, it was all black.

From what I remember, you two are in the jury-rigged Seamoth – maybe you should turn on the lights.

Hey folks!  Since last week’s chapter didn’t matter in the slightest, even by the author’s own admission, we’re not going to bother recapping it other than just saying it was Igor getting all grimdork and edgelardy because attention seeking.

“Whereas we seek attention by tearing into the low-hanging fruit!”

Damn straight!  Let’s get this attention train on the rails!

Probably something about a Soc and a Greaser, maybe. Probably not.

*screech* Let’s! Get! This! Over with!

I mean, The Girl is only like…a fifth of the way over, but goddamn if that doesn’t mean I’m gonna celebrate. Let’s just be glad this chapter is short. (Why are the Darry chapters always so short?)

Anyway, my name is Angie, and this is The Girl. Let’s continue.

Hello, dear Patrons!

Are we all ready for a brand-new fic from a brand-new source material? (Not that you really have a choice in the matter. (Well, unless you decide to go to a different site. (But please don’t. (I GET SO LONELY!))))

:clears throat:

Anyway. What was I saying? Oh, right! This fic comes from the Subnautica section of ff.net;

Since we haven’t had a fic from this source material, I’m going to give you a SC-style info-dump on the basics.

:cracks knuckles:

Prepare to have some learning shoved into your eye-holes, folks!

The game is an early-access survival/crafting game :sees many of the gamers in the audience stand up grumbing and preparing to leave: No, wait! This one is actually good!

Critiqued by AdmiralSakai and Serketry

Hello hello, all you patrons!

I was getting the feeling once again that these hallowed  halls of literature were alarmingly devoid of technicolor horses, so I’ve decided to grace you with another story excreted straight from the bowels of fimfiction.net. With me today is not another character but my IRL friend Serketry! He’s the coauthor of Palaven’s Dogs, the only player in my Call of Cthulhu games to be anywhere near reliable, and just in general the perfect partner in crime.

Howdy, everyone!

I was going to do something related to the execrable “Fall of Equestria” AU

Critiqued by TacoMagic and Eliza

WARNING:  This chapter is not safe for children, work, or other living things.

So it’s come to this.  The chapter that actually caught my attention to the fic in the first place.  A chapter so forcibly grimdark and disengenous that I figured the entire work would be far more inflamitorily bad than the rest.

“Oh my.”

As it turns out, this chapter was just the author being an overdramatic and angsty teen who misinterprets utilizing serious adult topics with being edgy and creating worthwhile content.  You’ll do well to imagine Igor typing this with Crawling or some other angst-fest music playing on loop in the background.
