:deep sigh:

So, thanks to SC, I have another chapter of this fic to power through. But after the author’s snit-fit in our comment section, the fic has apparently been deleted from ff.net so this is probably the very last chapter. So sad, much sorrow.

In the previous installment, Dumbass made it to Aurora despite not having the power reserves necessary without the PCC hand-delivering power cells to their feet (because whatever) and wandered around a bit before finally located the extremely important information that was needed to save Crazy Casey. Oh, and Dumbass has the incredibly lethal carar infection now but isn’t that concerned about it.

Hello, dear Patrons! Hope you’re having a great Good Friday, if that’s your thing.

This is the final (for now) chapter-lump! Hoo-ray!

In the last chapter-lump, which was actually just one chapter, Dumbass and Crazy Casey finally got to the island and decided to explore the dangerous alien wilderness in the dark. They did take the exosuit, which was smart, but decided to leave it and go on foot for most of their explorations, which was stupid. While exploring one of the abandoned Degasi bases, Crazy Casey fell and seriously fucked up her leg. She should have died while Dumbass ran back and forth to the Cyclops for a bit, but she only became conveniently unconscious so that Dumbass could heroically carry her back to the Cyclops – which is what he should have done in the first place.

Now, to the fic!

Chapter 11: Medical Attention

And again, starting exactly where the last chapter ended.

We made it onto the cyclops, she was still out cold in my arms.

And probably starting to get cold and a bit stiff, considering the amount of blood she’s lost.

Howdy-do, Patrons!

Welcome back to another chapter of meandering fic featuring the “exciting” adventures of Crazy Casey and Dumbass. In the last chapter-cluster they imploded the Seamoth, found an exosuit, squabbled a bit, and managed to find a frickin’ island after weeks of being on the planet.

And now, on to the fic!

Chapter 10: The Floating Island

Which is once again picking up exactly where the last chapter left off.

“What…is…THAT!” I yelled in fear.

:shrugs:

Dunno. What are you looking at? Because all I see is the Void – and it keeps staring back into me, which gets very annoying.

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.

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!

Top ‘o th’ mornin’ to ya, Patrons!

Happy St Patrick’s Day and welcome to a what I really hope is a cute little oneshot from a cute little time-wasting app called Neko Atsume!

Come play with us.

The “game” is relatively uncomplicated; the player has a space where they can set out different foods and toys that attract cats. You can’t actually do anything with the cats except take their pictures to put in your album, but the cats reward the player with fish (that can be used to purchase more items) and the occasional collectible. The app isn’t really a “game” in my opinion, since there isn’t any interaction with the characters or any kind of goal to be reached, but it is cute and appeals to the completionist in me.

And there’s cats, lots and lots of cats.

 

And sometimes snow.

 

Now, you would think that the fact that there isn’t any kind of story or plot involved would make it difficult to write any kind of fanfics for this source material – but the Internet will always find a way! The characters are blank canvases that authors can project whatever they want onto. There’s fanart and fanfics and forums where people discuss their OTPs, the whole nine yards. The summary for this particular fic is fairly straightforward;

pepper tries to get patches and ginger together

Not very informative, but still – more straightforward than many summaries I’ve read.

To the fic!

1707: Parties are for flirting – Oneshot

Hello, dear Patrons!

I’m here with a little oneshot I stumbled across in the Monsters, Inc. section that bills itself as a Romance/Fantasy fic – and it’s a Reader fic! You know how fun those are.

As a special treat Syl is making book in the North Atrium; you can bet on which of your beloved childhood characters you, the reader, will soon be making out with! Or even which canon character will be making out with another character, if that’s more your thing. Because if you’re going to be emotionally scarred by a fic you might as well get some cash out of it.

Now for those of you who aren’t familiar with the Monsters, Inc movies – welcome to Earth! Please do not eat my brain or cats.

But just in case you’re not an alien, here’s the very short version; Monsters, Inc tells the story of a parallel world of monsters that is in many respects a mirror of the human world. The monsters have discovered a way to use closet doors as portals to travel to the human world, where they frighten children in order to harvest their screams for energy. This is considered incredibly dangerous, because children are seen as exceptionally toxic and supposedly can kill with a single touch. Of course a little girl ( called Boo, which is the only thing she can say) manages to cross over into the monster world, where she meets Sully (James P. Sullivan) and his friend Mike Wazowski.

This is Sully and Mike. Do not picture them making out with each other.

Hijinks ensue and the guys discover that humans aren’t toxic but instead taste just like chicken! (No, not really; there’s a bit about how laughter is more powerful than screams, or something.) Way too many years later there was a prequel released, Monsters University, that details how Sully and Mike first met while in Scare School, which is an expy for the human college experience.

Now, on to the fic!
