I looked back at Leon, but he was looking away. He wasn’t looking at another girl, but it was still enough to trigger my inner Polynesian tribal fire god of tiki rage. I NEEDED TO BE APPEASED.

-Narration from my (rather ignorant) yandere protagonist

I imagined toked up teen addicts faced similar situations when they accidentally invited their dealer over to a party. Except in this case, the dealer was acting way nicer to the person he wasn’t selling to and also had teleportation powers and a magical pool cue and I was the one who tried to give him drugs because I loved him.

-Narration from the same protagonist after finding out who her crush really is and then being brought home to her mother by him

"I swear, you are the most useless of the Forsworn Lords." Liana, ever so smug and used to her superiority in the social hierarchy, gloats in a demeaning tone, "What, gonna cry, you little mousy bitch? You useless, spineless idiot."

The mousy looking woman in the black dress opposite her quakes a little, and then slowly rights her posture, "I am sick of you, Liana." All of a sudden, burning pain in Liana's head. She collapses on the ground, her brain feeling like it was boiling.

"You constantly talk down to people, using your high position like a bludgeon. Well, you picked on the wrong person today." The pain escalates until it feels like ice picks cracking Liana's skull open. She screams, but none can hear her, "I-I might not be as beautiful a girl, or as alluring, or as rich, but I do have one thing you don't."

Liana can only scream now, and suddenly vomits as the pain sluices down through her neck and then quickly down to her toes. Megala quakes, but remains steady, "I-I'm a Forsworn Lord, just as much as Gabbie and Sam, and I command respect. I can be a million times meaner than you can, Liana. Lets compare; you bully, talk down to, and isolate. I spy on and destroy nations. I think I win in the evil department."

Liana realizes her fatal error. She had underestimated her new allies, and overestimated her own position, "P-Please...not t-that."

Megala looks away from her dismissively, "Yes, that. From now on, Liana of House Midrune, you revere me. Y-You never talk down to or bully anyone ever again. Do I make myself perfectly clear?"

Liana struggles one last time, as she feels Megala's magic squirming in her brain, deleting her individuality, destroying the woman she once was. One last scream, and then, "Mistress, your orders?"

"Clean up this mess. With your fancy dress." Megala walks off, allowing herself a small smile.

Here we have ex-social outcast Megala from an RP I am participating in, and she's a villain, granted, but she takes down and demolishes the Alpha Bitch who was dabbling in dark magic to get her own petty, very mean spirited revenge. Given what this libby was doing before, this is Laser-Guided Karma.

I really, really liked writing this.

That's quite good, Nick. One problem, though: you're swapping tenses during it. Sometimes something happened (past tense), and other times, even in the same sentence, it happens (present tense).
'He strutted across the bedroom, his hard manhood pointing the way' sounds like he owns a badly named seeing-eye dog. 'Sit, Hard Manhood!

I corrected the tense issues.

Gotta say, even though its a manipulative Spymaster doing it, with hints of And I Must Scream, Liana is just so horrible and she brought this on herself so much, it ends up Laser-Guided Karma.

Ithaqua explaining to Loki why he prefer eating people in his natural form.

The Wind Walker kept his eyes on The Trickster God while he nibbled the skin off of the human finger he was eating, tearing a piece of marinated flesh off and swallowing as he continued, "I prefer my natural from, because it's so much easier to eat people like that. There's no issue with having to keep up with pointless table manners or having to use utensils. I don't even have to chew, I can just swallow them alive. There's no risk of choking on a femur, much less being wary of choking on a knuckle bone."

For the funny Forsworn Lord, here's Ashlau Dimodeus trying to attack some knights.

Ashlau combed his beauteous raven colored hair offhandedly, contemplating if they were past the tree yet. Lincifa told him he could get the drop on them from there.

The pretty youth thought over The Plan Lincifa and Sam told him; Kidnap the Prince. Ransom him to his father. Set a meeting for the exchange. Kill both of them at the meeting. Simple as...simple as...simple as simple could be.

"I just need to magickify them." He watched the knights walking past with the Prince at the center of their formation. Ashlau was immediately angered. The blond was exactly the same as Ashlau's old tormentors, those who he tracked down and had thrown in his dungeons before he was sealed. Big. Muscular. Carried himself with confidence.

Mind muddled with anger, Ashlau stalked forward with what he thought to be cat-like tread. The knights, due to the inexperienced attempt at skulking, immediately knew something was up, and were ready.

Ashlau leaped into action with a half-way sort of almost attempt at a half-hearted valiant warcry, "Come with Forsworn Lord Ashlau Dimodeus, you...you...you...big dumb doodoo head! Or face my sorcerous fury!" The knights proceeded to draw their swords around him, having arranged themselves in a circle around the would be assailant.

Dimodeus gulped, he had some ways out of this. He was certain. He had gotten out of worse sticky moments. There was that time Selmira almost tortured him by accident. It was surely accident. Surely. And he got out of that.

The Prince chuckled, "Big dumb doodoo head? What are you, seven?"

Ashlau whimpered, "...S-Seven hundred..."

"Hmmmm. Levitithan is smaller than the legends indicted. Radar indicates it's only a mere thirty kilometres long."

"Only."

"Yes...?"

"Only. Only thirty kilometres."

Who you are does not matter.
Old one, work was abandoned, but the main character is having a semi-rage-against-the-heavens moment about the number of wingmen he's lost.

Lightning Thirteen’s drives sputtered and died. She was a sitting duck.

“Fuck.” Richard’s voice was deadpan regardless, but he fought his controls, forcing his Taurus to come about and holding it steady in the face of a scrambled fly-by-wire system that really didn’t want to do so. Not this one, dammit! Not this one! He didn't see the white-painted monstrosity as such at that moment. It was everything, every disaster, everything responsible for three lost flights and six lost wingmen and a reputation as a walking jinx who got everyone killed. He toggled to missiles and was relieved to hear the solid tone of a lock, the infrared search and track still worked apparently. His thumb jammed down on the launch button hard enough to crack the plastic. "This one goes home, you son of a bitch."

"How do I look?"

"Perfect."

"The reason that humans are everywhere, all over the galaxy, is that once, several interregna ago, there was this old man with a long white beard, who told them to march out and hump like nympho bunnies. (No, I don't know what 'bunnies' are, but I presume they're much inclined to humping.)" Riu-Anna Taryas-Daughter, felinoid pirate.

Edit: I've inserted an incorrect hyphen in her last name (you're not supposed to use hypens in felinoid matronyms!) to stop the forum system treating it as a link.

The capital D (or S) is a felinoid tradition, to indicate that it's a matronym or a patronym, and not a human-style "lineage-indicating" last name. I figure they mostly use matronyms (there's a trope for that, I believe), but many have switched to human-style last names, depending on how much they've assimilated into human cultures.
