Blanket warning for the entire series: cursing; offscreen violence; thematic material involving: non-graphic sexuality (mostly LGBT, some hetero), legal and illegal drugs, religious and occult themes, and personal dysfunction; nonexplicit discussion of potentially triggery material; protagonists who are neither particularly moral nor particularly intelligent; culturally inaccurate theme naming; disregard for human life; blatant ripping-off and alteration of pre-existing fictional premises; the occasional bit of thinly veiled authorial ranting; a severely imbalanced gender ratio; Author Appeal; TVTropes jargon; vegetarians.

If individual stories contain on-screen sex, graphic violence, detailed discussion of rape or child abuse, et cetera, I will warn for that in the individual entries.

Touring: Eastern Washington

"I'm going to assume that the first two were rhetorical questions, and as for the third... the water was deeper than I thought it would be and you're eight inches taller than I am."
