    Not so long after:

    A lovely young woman who lived rough joins the Anders household as a maid, hoping for a new and better life. Theo worries that the arrangement is somehow sordid, but is convinced otherwise by a spontaneous interracial threesome.

    so didn't Sophia trigger from one of her mothers boyfriends abusing her? Or was that fanon, I cannot remember at this point.

    Soooooo she triggered breaker/mover/stranger.

    NGL, the chances that Sophia second triggers from this eventually are not zero. That could make things interesting.

    Probably would double down on the stranger side of things, maybe something to counter master control? maybe master blocking breaker form?

    Which would make her more interesting to Taylor since it means she might be able t snag a new charm off of her.

    Which honestly makes it a perfect 2nd trigger event from the shards PoV, addresses the current situation in way that will ensure more conflict later.

    This is basically Taylor's reasoning for backing the Empire.

    Taylor: "All the Empire wants to do is protect their people and ensure their prosperity, sure their means of doing so is fucked up and their definition of people is based on rasist bullshit pseudo logic, but at least they mean well."

    I've never heard about the part of him chaining her up before, where is that from?

    She didn't sleep with him but Taylor was technically part of Lung's harem for a hot minute.

    She also spent a week Tinkering with Dragon behind Armmaster's back.

    She still isn't well informed about the things the Empire does. The things Victor does are beyond fucked up and he doesn't even have a kill order.

    You can't convince me this is an improvement over the Protectorate.

    Throw in a purity ring and maybe you can sell that to Taylor.

    Narrator: Taylor you're in with bad company!
    Taylor: I'll be with you in just a moment, I need to finish torturing my slave.

    There was a trend a couple decades back in the US in some of the more overtly devout Christian communities where, in response to the growing normalization of fornication, parents attempted to introduce additional rituals to help guide their children away from that and towards marriage. Girls were giving rings as placeholders for the marriage rings they were intended to get eventually, to remind them to keep themselves pure for their wedding bed.

    Results were mixed.

    I was really excited for a moment there thinking that someone else knows Super Powereds, but alas it was a pun. In SP there's an autokinetic dude named Chad Taylor who is incredibly badass. Like, uses his blood as a makeshift water saw and has trained so hard that he could go on autopilot and continue fighting while unconscious/asleep, kinds of badass.

    I'm gonna be honest, at this point it's probably not gonna stop, given how dead-set some people seem to be on it.
    If there's an option to set a thread to silent when it comes to reports, this might be one of the situations where it's warranted.

    Yeah, Worm's grimdark level is so high that, in many ways, the government there actually is the totalitarian police state that crazy conspiracy theorists in RL accuse it of being. I mean, take any wacky theory you see the guys in lunatic fringe groups tossing around, and odds are it actually happens in Worm. Show trials with predetermined outcomes? Shadowy government groups issuing assassination orders on American citizens? Intentionally letting murderous criminals roam loose at the expense of ordinary citizens? Discarding civil liberties whenever the government feels like it? Conspiracies to manipulate elections, suborn elected officials and effectively take over the government? Between Cauldron and the PRT, they've got pretty much everything covered.

    A group of like-minded people organizing to resist their oppressive government could actually have been the good guys here if they weren't, you know, actual Nazis.

    If Sophia does end up second triggering, I hope she gets away. Not because I like her or anything, but because holy shit would that be a clusterfuck.

    Funny as hell too. Breaker Trump that might be capable of absolutely no-selling Taylor's stuff? Confirmation of a human-controlling Master and Low Key being absolutely batshit insane? Now that would add some much needed tension and conflict.

    Literally just repeating in my head. "Please let her escape in the maid dress and run straight for the PRT."
    "Please let her escape in the maid dress and run straight for the PRT."

    "Please let her escape in the maid dress and run straight for the PRT."

    "Please let her escape in the maid dress and run straight for the PRT."

    "Please let her escape in the maid dress and run straight for the PRT."

    But.... she would probs run to a bolt hole and sharpen her Taylor stabbing knife for a few days while brooding about Taylor stabbing and Taylor stabbing related activities.

    Sadly if this goes on for a few more months she'll probs just mentally break and even if she second triggers then, she'd be a mess.

    There is something of a question in that whether or not this should be moved to the NSFW section due to all of the rape and such. That might be the thrust of a lot of the reports.

    Lots of people are talking about Sophia Second Triggering. If it was gonna happen it would have already. I’m actually pretty sure Sophia never actually got raped by her mother’s boyfriend. He just kept getting in her personal space and touched her (bad touch). Alec has already been using her for a long time now, so if it was gonna happen it would have already. On the other hand, if this really does end up in Lewd territory and Taylor goes futa on Sophia, then I can see her second triggering. After all to her Hebert was weak, prey and trash. If Taylor’s the one doing it then the impact might be a strong enough shock. Although judging by how she was crying and screaming….I think she’s gone completely catatonic by now.


    I’m more interested in Lisa’s opinion on Taylor. Like she will know the kind of fucked up shit that’s going on in her basement. That innocent girl who she offered tea to and cheered up is gone. An exalted stands in her place and in a way her hope has been crushed.

    Behind her is a snake that has her wrapped up in its coils, the one person who can save her has too high a price. By the time she was willing to pay it regardless, the person has changed too much. Price remains the same but the weight of the exchange seems heavier.

    It's just some guy she paid to do a thing. Just like the cheese pizza she put on Armsmaster's camera were acquaintances of hers who didn't mind selling their blatantly underage nudes.

    That goes without saying! Not studying a power would be such a huge turn-off.

    A sigh, and an eyeroll. Truly, what else did I expect of QQ?

    Shaping the Ideal Form can't do that. You need the followup charm Many-Faced Moon Transformation to switch between peach and eggplant modes.

    Took the words right out of my mouth. Now that's something I really didn't expect.

    I put it there initially due to exactly this reasoning. But apparently NSFW specifically means 'explicit porn' here?

    If you want I can put it back there. (Not sure why people think NSFW is only porn…lots of things are nsfw like almost anything that would be rated Mature, Adult/18+)

    It is against my philosophy to 'like' moderator posts, but despite the fact that the above statement clearly breaks the 'no modern politics' rule it made me come close.
    A shadowy government conspiracy would be an improvement on Cauldron.
    Yeah, then the dog-fucking can happen on-page and we won't all miss that it happened.
    As I understand it, most people post on NSFW because that's where people on QQ actually look for stories.

    Tried looking it up, I apparently misremembered. While abuse is implied, it is never clearly stated. What is known, is that Sophia triggered because of her stepfather trying to "bond" with her.

    Same, though there's also the option that it happens and doesn't change anything. Like, she gets the usual wormfic second trigger power upgrades, then gets back in the maid suit.

    It raises the question, could Lisa end up so scared and squicked that loyalty to Coil would be preferable to getting sucked into Taylor's orbit?

    Coil: Your mode of dress today is fetching, Lisa, but rather informal.
    Lisa: I will literally bear your children if you pull your operation from Brockton right now and rebuild far, far away.
    Coil: ... how far away would you consider safe?
    Lisa: How well guarded is Haywire's remaining work?

    They are the good guys, no amount of labeling changes their nature. The tension between what they are and what they're called is part of what makes their scenes work. Can you imagine how boring the Empire parts would be if the rank and file were the usual cardboard cutouts?

    Being honest I would prefer if that was actually the case. There are stories on NSFW that aren't NSFW at all to the point one wonders why are there in the first place or why does the division even exist.

    It exists because some people are allowed to browse the internet at work, but while some content won't provoke any concern from your boss other stuff will get you fired. The difference between SFW and NSFW is literally 'does this violate typical corporate content viewing restrictions'. Sex is the most obvious issue, but anything with disgusting or disturbing images, or highly offensive language, really ought to be in NSFW.

    You could argue that maybe the whole site should be NSFW, but that would make it significantly harder for new members to find QQ and evaluate whether they want to sign up.
