    Bernard Shallot, BPD Universe has received your missive. Last night, he sat down at his desk and began penning a response...

    But after a few moments, he put the pen down. "Men such as I do not duel with their lessers," he smirked.

    He cast another judgmental eye over Bernard Shallot-Liu's typewritten demand and then, feeling magnanimous, decided that he would go downstairs and tell Mimsy she was allowed to stop playing the piano. It had been a week, after all. That should suffice for making sure she knew her place.

    So I'm only mid-way through season one but thought I'd jump in here to make some noise because I'm loving this so much ❤️ I've only scratched the surface but you've already delivered so many twists and turns! Every chapter somehow tops the previous one, and man, those characters and their quirks sure know how to make me invested. Can't wait to see what's in store!

    Side note - So it took 11 chapters for me to realise that Alice is that Alice... Goes to show how much I know about Strangerville premades :D

    In which I made a trailer for Season 3 (the final season) of the story.

    Don't worry! This is just the beginning of the journey for these characters. Once this story wraps, they'll be off to new adventures in Underworld Summer Vacation :)

    The trailer is epic! I've watched it a couple of times looking for clues :D That dramatic music though :o

    HYPE HYPE HYPE. Clearly I'm here to watch Gwendolyn solve every supernatural dispute in like, five seconds and also for the rise of Murder Norman.

    LOL I'm so glad y'all loved it. Honestly, Gwendolyn is coming in hot this season and I can't wait. Also, iMovie has the most ridiculous/best trailer templates so shout out to them for the music!

    New Chapter!

    Chapter 31, Part 2: The Will of a God is a Heck of a Thing

    Plans go sideways as they are wont to do, but Deacon finds his head and Caleb learns the meaning of the phrase "boot and rally."

    Oh, and I've got a little work in progress on a future chapter, if you missed the bonus post, it's here.

    There's so many foreshadowing tidbits, I need someone to speculate with!
    • Caleb is Anxiety, right? Right? Right?! He's gotta be.
    • Okay, so Ben's running around, but what's he up to, and what implications does this have for Alice's powers? Or Alice herself, I guess.
    • Dylan is... probably also something, right, as well as probably most of the other Unparalleled Windenburg Baking Show contestants? We've seen that Jimena, at least, is a concept-person who isn't under Alice's control, but I kinda got sidetracked and am kind of forgetting the differences between gods and sages and who else would be able to control the concept-people.
    • Uh, who hasn't been confirmed to have a secret supernatural identity? Of course, we know that someone can be supernatural in multiple ways, but I'm assuming one person can represent at least one concept.
    • Also, given a recent comment, it's pretty funny that Alice herself is a literal god but still uses "llamas" as an expletive because of her mortal roots.

    (edit: The profanity filter did not like the abbreviation for Unparalleled Windenburg Baking Show.)

    MY LIPS ARE SEALED (but it's so hard not to spoil my own dang story)

    But oh the drama that would be created if your assumptions prove correct.

    Chapter 32, Part 1: Trips and Manuscripts

    William heads to the library with a special research companion, Penny continues her investigation, Miko's decisions start to catch up with her, and we don't get the Grim Reaper we want, we get the Grim Reaper we deserve.

    Oh, a new chapter! For some reason this didn't come up in my WP reader. I'll read it tonight or tomorrow, but in the meantime, I shall speculate with you @Dollyllama108
    The main thing on my mind when it comes to the god identities is Alice, or more specifically, Alice's identity as Alice. We've seen her god of death moments, more prevalently lately, when her humanity almost fully disappears - which is to be expected. But suppose she does succeed in getting the owl of undoing, the world will not crash and burn and her body will live - will she still continue to be Alice, the Alice she identifies as now? Or will that side of her be fully gone by then? Vlad of course shifts to a degree too, when he takes on his other form, but his identity doesn't change as dramatically as hers. Although one could ponder how much of that is to do with him already having lost his original identity over the years.

    I also wonder if Ben has left his previous vessels like it's happened with Alice now, or if this is a new development specific with her, perhaps because the god presence is becoming stronger in her? Maybe she no longer needs him to bridge the gap between her humanity and her god form, so he ceased to exist?

    Gah, wordpress is betraying me and I don't know why. I'm going to try and see if I can fix it (through various googles).

    I WANT TO SPECULATE WITH YOU BUT THEN SPOILERS.

    dang, y'all both are asking such good questions.

    Oops! Missed posting the last chapter here so here's both of them:

    Chapter 32, Part 2: Trips and Manuscripts
    William and Dylan make an unexpected, but not unwelcome breakthrough. Vlad gets a hobby, and Penny prepares for some witch-related shenanigans.

    Chapter 33, Part 1: Into the Belly of the Beast
    Caleb and Deacon run an errand that involves laundry and magic, William confronts Morgyn and tries not to fall too hard, Alice and Vlad work out their issues...with claws and wings.

    Here's some bonus stuff: sims misbehaving while I'm trying to take screenshots

    I just want to say, I have been HOOKED on this story for the past week, reading whenever I can! (4 homeschooling kids and 4 dogs + church keep me busy!)
    I am wrapping up season 2, and I am so excited for where this story goes!
    (Also, it inspired me to edit a better looking Vlad of my own!)

    Ah!!! Thank you! I’m so glad you’re enjoying it. We are working remote in my household trying to teach classes and run meetings from the same small space so I’m writing in between all that (normally at insane hours, like midnight). To know that people are reading it just makes me smile :-)

    Oh man. Season three is a pretty wild ride lol

    Get a better looking Vlad!!! We all deserve it!! Hahaha
