@BestGirlGrace Where's ds6?
@BestGirlGrace Because to join them, you're required to change your name to Marine.
@deejvalen Whee! *thump*
Welp, I just started my largest print yet. Estimated print time, 45 hours. I also did some math and realized that I'm effectively spending ~$5 for just the supports on this mask. This has me thinking again about buying a filament extruder, so I can recycle that sort of stuff. Though, I'll probably wait on that until at least my PLA scrap box is full.
@AndiBumble That sounds like the best power for a magical girl. Just sayin'.
@BestGirlGrace @witchfynder_finder Nah, it's about bullshitting to get around someone's stupid gatekeeping. "You're not a real princess unless you can feel a pea through 20 mattreses!" "Well, clearly, I'm a real princess, then, because I didn't get a wink of sleep last night. And look at this bruise that I totally didn't get by falling off 20 mattresses."
@trysdyn I know I didn't; my Halloween growing up was walking across the front lawn to my grandparent's house, trick-or-treating them, then getting in my mom's car and going around to her friends' houses, spending half an hour to an hour at each one, before going home so that my mom could go out to the bar.
@trysdyn 100% approved, if not mandatory.
@fluxom_alt A free company was an army of independent mercenaries in the 12th to 14th centuries, largely fighting in the Hundred Years War, and becoming bandits after it ended.
Also, it's the equivalent to most MMO's guilds, in FF14.
@fluxom_alt Yep! Mine is metallic orange.
Grace is getting her name officially changed
@BestGirlGrace Who wouldn't enjoy it? It's a great name.
@Xarph They're pseudofascist assholes who wouldn't understand actual libertarianism if it shoved their necks into a guillotine?
@junebug I'm pretty sure that I used to play on that MUD.
@BestGirlGrace @AndiBumble There is nothing wrong with your gender. Do not attempt to adjust your expression. We are now controlling the trans status. We control the hormones and the inhibitors. We can deluge you with a thousand pronouns, or expand one, single label to ultimate supremacy, and beyond. We can shape your body to anything our imagination can conceive.
@trysdyn Better be careful, or you might become the go-to scholarly expert on kusoge. ~#^

@fluxom_alt D-Corp Tower is a single tall, tapered tower with four round turrets running from a few meters above the ground, up to the same height as the main tower, separating fully about halfway up. Atop each turret is a large mirror, which turns to track the sun and concentrate it on a solar collector on the main tower's roof.
Its smooth white frame and mirrored glass exterior belies the chaos within; the Dionysus Biotechnology Corporation lives up to its name.
The ground floor is a single huge atrium, full of trees and shrubbery, with grass instead of carpet, and what appear to be the ruins of Greek and Celctic architecture.
The floors above there are a hodgepodge of rooms, seemingly with no sense to their ordering; there may be a research lab next to a shrine, both tucked between a set of apartments and a nightclub. Thanks to the varied services, many residents never leave the tower; some are born there and never realize there's anything else but the anarchic town which it creates.
Below ground, things are different; that's where D-Corp's *real* work takes place. The labs where they develop substances to expose the residents above to, which slowly mutate them into exotic new lifeforms. The monitoring facilities to watch everything going on above, and make sure their tests are going to plan. And, of course, the marketing center, where they harvest particularly interesting test subjects, and use them to sell their transformation serums to the wider world.

@AndiBumble I'm more a fan of quotes like, "I can't return your free will. The conversion process did nothing to your mind, and my robots don't follow Asimov's nonsense. It's not *my* fault if you're too horny and subby to question my orders."
@fluxom_alt Where does "clockwork, a ferret, and thirty pounds of pixie sticks," fit in this poll?
@trysdyn Sounds like either a data breach or a database failure, to me.
