      Saw your Warranty snippets recommended at Cherico's story Winterhold and gave it a gander.

      I never expected to see a wholesome Contractor in my life, but you surprised me with Meg's treatment! :D

      I hope that you eventually give it a thread here for ease of tracking! :)

        Yeah, people usually either go full villain or act like they are forced into enslaving nubile young women and having sex with them through no fault of their own. Very few own up to their choices.

        If they don't have to pay for Chris's contractual terms to be delivered, then there's no reason they wouldn't end his contract early.

        They don't have to pay for the housing and the protagonist both gets a friend to help stabilize him.

        No, not abuse as in beatings, abuse as in overuse. I'm talking about the concept of Xander as an MC being so saturated in the majority of BtVS fics.
        What is your opinion on it? Is it good or bad? Does the abundance make it cliche and cringe?

      "I can't feel my heartbeat," she noted hopefully before stripping off her baggy sweater and too small bra and placing a hand over the left side of her chest. "My heart's in the right place!"

      Lmaooo, I like that that got brought up. It was such a weird part of Meg's character her heart was always something I remembered.

      ">Our projected lifespan is only one hundred and eighty years on average," Linda said
      I'm pretty sure you're low-lying the life expectancy of Synths, my guy.

      Keep in mind that Kellogg is 108 years old and he looks like any other middle aged adult. He's a baseline human that has been living in the Wasteland since, in addition to his Cybernetics not being as in depth or advanced as the stuff Synths are loaded up with.

        Also, when I say 'baseline human', that's a bit misleading because the average human in Fallout 4 are a fucking mess after two centuries of getting blasted with radiation.

        Synth bodies are tough and loaded with the best Cybernetics in Fallout Earth; I wouldn't be shocked if they had lifespans in the centuries, maybe even past a thousand for Coursers (well, excepting operational hazards).

      I had another one of those Xander ideas I am better of handing over. Remember Xanders troubles with soda machines? Just before Episode 1 he tries to get a drink but ends up with the Essence of the Chad in a can instead. Probably works with all other Essences but Chad!Xander may be amusing.

      Elite Beat Agents is one of the more obscure DS rythem games, the jump document for it and the cnaon lore are weird but fun. The devs took inspiration from Bluesx Brothers, Ghostbusters and MIB to remake the japanese game which was based on male cheer squads.

      Alexander Lavelle Harris is the most boring and just barely average student Sunnydale ever saw. Until the CIA decided that he'd make the perfect secret agent and invited him to a summer camp. His new friend and training partner just needs to get a bit less tense with the ladies. The friend? Agent Cody Banks.

      You said you didn't have any good title names for that new story idea you have?

      How about 'Harry Potter and the Prisoner's Montage', or 'Harry Potter and the Azkaban Hustle'?

      How are those for a couple suggestions?

      For example: "What would happen if Xander got access to the Celestial Forge on the last day of middleschool?"
      ... I wonder if that would lead to getting on Hephaestus radar instead of Aphrodites...

        One person has, but he hasn't really requested anything in particular because he likes all my stuff. Great guy. Had one guy drop 200 on me through paypal for more of A MODern Man so I made sure to spend two months adding a chapter to the that with every other post. I promise one chapter with Slave Driver but really it means I add the fic requested to the top of the que every time I write something.

      I think you like to write sorta 'slice of life' type stuff as general plot instead of overarching plots.

      I've noticed that you'll write actiony stuff, but it's more like those moments are just part of that given characters life.

      ...does that make sense?
