Episode 332 - Daughter of the Saints, chapters 7-9

Episode 332: Daughter of the Saints, chapters 7-9

She couldn't be more obvious if she was standing on the counter with a megaphone, demanding sympathy from anyone who passed her by.

Having reached its first plot point, Daughter of the Saints stubbornly refuses to go anywhere else. Much like a whiny, self-absorbed teenager (ie, its central character) it instead goes to its room and sulks and refuses all efforts to coax it out. And so while Gaia continues to while about how unfair it is that life isn’t like the magical fantasy world she wants it to be, Peirce gets a sandwich, Matt Miller takes time out from his erotic roleplay and the economic feasibility of supporting a Wolf Ranch on Deviantart commissions is contemplated at great length. So forget about stealing cars, claiming turf and over the top battles; because explaining how basements, chess boards, taps and zippers work is where the real action is at!

Episode 331 - Daughter of the Saints, chapters 1-6

Episode 331: Daughter of the Saints, chapters 1-6

She needs to be placed in a more child-appropriate environment, like, say, a cage fighting league or the Korean DMZ.

After being forced to leave her beloved Wolf Ranch to fulfill the wishes of her dead beloved mother (and possible child molester), young Gaia Kirrov is reunited with her long lost father. And despite said father bring the Boss of the Third Street Saints, the result is not automatically a festival of excessive, nay cartoony violence. Rather it becomes an intense tug of war between said father and willfully neglectful social worker Helena (sadly not a psychotic clone) as to who doesn't have to take custody of the god-awful brat. So if you think that your Sandbox Crime Game needs less car thefts, drive-bys, poop trucks and naked sky-diving and more custody disputes, emo poetry, court orders and wangst over dead parents, then this is the fic for you!
