Now You Gotta Deal With This S***

A tale told in verse. A text from your sister requesting a pick up from a party leads to a night of strangeness.

Inspired by Bucky's ballad contest. Though...I wouldn't call this a ballad. I'm not sure what I'd call it, actually, other than exceedingly stupid, and fun to write.

How the hell do wimpy 80 mile winds cause more than a billion and a half in damage? Anyway, three dead, all tree related. People will always insist hang around trees after a storm and that is so dangerous even when vengeful druidic ghosts aren't a factor. Anyway Steve popped in to the villain's lair to report be wasn't yet dead early this morning, I assume he still continues to be okay as of now. (That giant collective sigh I just heard was one of relief, right?)

I never really read past the initial nightmare world section, does it go on forever or do you eventually get some kind of explanation or have something to do about it?

Good, I was about to dock you another 25 points for it.

So the characters in the prologue will all be dead? If I'm following this right, I'm not sure if completely linear pages that then turn out not to be relevant and then introducing brand new characters because the ones we've been following died ages ago is the best approach for grabbing and keeping the reader's attention tbh. I'd recommend starting with whoever the actual main character will be and including the important bits of whatever happened a couple centuries ago as background info, archives you can find as you play, a story shared by another character...there are lots of options really.

I'm still enraged by 'hunrgy'.

I've considered that and I've also noticed she tends to pop up around the times when Seto does, which is more noticeable now that he takes all these hiatuses.

But fuck it I don't even care, if she's fake she's funny enough I can't even get worked up over it. This is how you do alt trolling, people.

Nah we're all mean bullies. Just ask BM.

Well yeah but the water's cold enough over there that hurricanes are rare. Flooding is flooding so a Category 1 can still hurt anywhere depending on how much rain it brings and what the infrastructure's like, and even winds of 100mph or so can do damage to buildings. Someone else might be able to verify or correct me on this but I think a lot of houses in Europe/the UK are brick or stone and those aren't designed to stand up to high winds very well. (It would need to get up above the 100mph range to be a real issue though and so Ophelia wasn't ever really much of a threat in that area.) I feel like really bizarre weather activity is going to start becoming the norm though, so in a way it's a good thing we've had this year of narrowly dodging bullets to become aware of all the sick tricks hurricanes can potentially pull off when they're really in the mood to fuck somebody up.

The Boy Scouts already have half a million more members than the Girl Scouts.

Both groups are seeing declining numbers, but the Girl Scouts will obviously be hit hard by this. And that's okay because they are really poorly managed and kind of deserve it. They treat their employees like shit and so they have a huge turnover, plus they milk about 800 million dollars out of their child labor force every year while offering the kids less and less to do. Sales are the primary focus of the organization now and all the actual activities that aren't arts and crafts BS are on the decline.

But anyway it's kind of silly the way people are acting like it's some personal thing the Boy Scouts are doing to get at the Girl Scouts though. It makes perfect sense to not be blocking half the population from joining a group that's trying to get more members, and the idea of hiking and camping being male exclusive things is a pretty old fashioned one.

Even then lots of girls might prefer a girl-only environment, but I'm glad the option will be there for them to join the Boy Scouts if they find themselves bored as shit selling cookies.
