aurora-boreali asked: How has playing Dungeons and Dragons helped shape you as a writer and as a human being?
TRENDS MALE ADVENTURERS HATE BUT FEMALE ADVENTURERS LOVE
Deathcut Armor - Guys like a girl to look soft and touchable, not like we would receive 1d10+CHA necrotic damage if we tried to snuggle up.
Putting a Cloaked Weapon enchantment on your light blade - Makes us wonder, what else are you trying to hide from us? Your blade should be natural-looking.
Diadem of Acuity - We hate feeling like you’re constantly scrutinizing us.
Goblin Stompers - Being able to shift when an attack misses you? You may think that playing hard-to-get is cute, but it’s actually just frustrating for us!
A Rimefire Griffon mount - Maybe we’re just old-fashioned, but it can be a real blow to a dude’s ego when a girl has a more exotic mount than he does.
Speaking Abyssal in bed - This one’s just scary as fuck, to be honest.
you finally sneak into the dragon’s cave and find his treasure chest. you open it and there is just a macaroni drawing by the dragon’s son.
"ITS TREASURE TO MEEEEE" the dragon bellows

The idea of this haunts me.
REBLOGGED 4 U MY FELLOW D&D LADIES
I recently decided to write/run a dragon-centric campaign, and as such have resigned myself to this fate for the next several months, possibly years.
I was on NW Nerdcast!
Would you like to hear me talk about…my first time?
(That is, my first time playing D&D?)
And if you’re a history buff, check out this episode of the Star-Trek-and-sex-toys podcast Look At His Butt from way back in 2008, where I went by Echo and discussed my Star Trek fandom activities.
Hope you enjoy!
euglossia-watsonia asked: OH MY GOD I am very pleased that you have a tumblr. Your fics are amazing! On The Ice is one of my all time faves.
Thank you, darling! Since I posted On The Ice, I’ve seen fantasy/medieval Sherlock fanart popping up — not related to my fic, but just other peeps who placed the characters in that sort of universe. I think the idea of John as a Paladin (or Cleric) and Sherlock as a Bard (or Sorcerer) is mind-bogglingly awesome, but that’s probably because I’m a nerd.
Anyway, here’s one of my favorites, by Xeora on DeviantArt. It’s not an illustration for On The Ice, but it could be.
