Read Witches' Servant
I'm tired of posting this link every time it updates so I'm making this a pinned post for the future
Read it, nerd.
The Loccubus ramble
so, for starters, this is Loccubus
The initial idea is based on a dreampost from a while back but it really resonated with me for a number of reasons that I needed to sit and reflect upon, 'cause when I drew this I basically just took a bunch of personal hangups and woes and blahdyblahblah and just threw it all onto the paper
I'm not joking when I say I sit here, I think about the thought element, I follow these similar steps in logic, I end up right back at it ultimately Gracing people. Like the only alternative I really seem to land comfortably on is either noy explicitly having the virus gain its own distinct voice (see: always showing up in hybridized consciousness forms) or having it come to a head so late in the story that its left more mystery than not
so really it should be considered perfectly reasonable if an epidemic crisis plotline culminates in a cute blonde girl sitting up and saying "Hey! I'm Grace, you can call me Princess."
and it'd be really nice content if, at some point, someome becomes able to communicate with the virus directly because someone willingly gave themselves wholly over to it and fully became transformed by it
and it follows then that, as a basic part of how a though virus would work, signs of its infection would involve altering the infected individuals thoughts
see, I dont necessarily have to imply that a thought virus has its own sentience, but a virus that spreads itself across thoights as a vector does naturally lend itself to the idea that the virus has its own self-identity.
hey @BestGirlGrace you're an absolute delight to voice chat with. I love hearing your voice, and I'm gonna be giggling all night about the Sunken Ruins of Qarn and it's 100% your fault.
@fluxom_alt Containment field.
Which is why, when the suit runs out of energy, it fucking explodes off of her.
I havent even gotten around to drawing yet!?!?
I'm too deeply infected by Graecethetics to function
the basic prompt is "a virus that affects tech-integrated sentient beings and inadvertently shocks them out of their drone programming" and I just inevitably circle back to "eventually the virus lands somewhere is can stretch its legs and starts talking about cute girls"
so, hey, remember this sketch buried deep in a thread from last week? i'm going to try and make this into a sticker AND (hopefully) an embroidered iron-on patch. will likely do a preorder on my store once i get some quotes back from a few manufacturers. stay tuned, sluts... uh, i mean, if you really feel like it,
your robot gf has a state of the art coolant system that will keep her running at full speed in temperatures up to 150 Fahrenheit (65.5 Celsius), which is how you know her claims that the heat has made her too dumb to do any housework aren’t true
