Hello, dear readers.

Today I have an important life lesson for you. Three cups of liquor-spiked coffee can lead to a burst of inspiration...and possibly arrhythmia...but mostly inspiration!  And that inspiration might make one want to write a story. And to include a super secret guest in it in collaboration with a super secret author. And then share it with the blog section of LL. ?

 

Hope you enjoy! ❤️

Unexpected crossover ?

 

Kiki and Cassidy ohhh dear, that is a chaotic combo ?

 

I expected something was fishy about the party, and actually thought instead a real vampire thing, they go to mortal nobles play around with the idea of vampires. ?

 

They got the wrong ones haha, cause neither Kiki is a normal vampire and Cass just a paladin with the mind of a rock ?

 

Great work Devi, looking forward for the next part.

Yeah I agree with Resdayn, Kiki and Cassidy is probably the most chaotic combo you could have chosen. 

By the gods... drunk tattoo's with her best friend :joy:. Not sure what to expect from the next entry, but I'm sure it will and in total chaos :joy:.

Looking forward to see what the two are going to do in the next entry.

 

I'm curious about the Vampire Countess and her interesting choice of (poisoned drinks? ) to stock up her food supplies for the long Skyrim winter.

 

Thanks for the shout outs to my story universe ;) much appreciated. 

Thanks for that entry Devianna, already looking forward for your next one.

Thank you, Resdayn. Glad you liked it!

SpyVsPie and I definitely were going for the element of surprise, so the fact that the crossover was unexpected is exactly what we wanted.  ?

Kiki and Cassidey certainly have rather unique personalities which immediately made them good friends.  I mean, both of them do have excellent fashion sense! ?

Cass has a mind of a very sharp rock! Very intelligent and professional too! And Kiki is a totally regular vampire...almost...well, she doesn't think she's that unusual...?

 

This epic adventure will continue in Spy's blog, so stay tuned! ?

Thank you for the praise, Alter.  ? I'm happy this episode made you laugh. ?  Chaotic combos are fun!!!

 

The Duchess "Evilfang" was indeed a bit inspired by your universe. I needed a humorous name and I also wanted Kiki to be familiar enough with the workings of vampire world in order to know that it was fake.  The Duchess blood wine conversation was a play on 'draining' aspect. Kiki meant that the Duchess drains her victim's blood for her drinks while Cassidey obviously understood it as draining a grape in order to make wine. ?

 

Next part is coming soon in Spy's stories. ?

Aww, thank you for the kind words, Crw! ? You were completely correct in your prediction. Put Cass and Kiki together and things are about to go bonkers. ?

Writing this story was a whole lot of fun for both me and Spy.  And it turned out even larger than we expected. The adventure will continue soon! ?

Oh I see, just because you corrected yourself in the story and pointed out that it's not actually a Countess, but a Duchess. 

Thanks for clearing that up ;) .

What a roller coaster! I never saw those twists coming! I didn't care for the guest start though, terrible character.

It is difficult to evaluate your influence on this chapter, as well as underestimate it. ^_^  As I understand it, you will be responsible for the second part of these adventures.
So if you're ask me I think more like a dessert ^_^

Everything with these two usually goes in a completely random, chaotic and extremely entertaining direction. ? The epic conclusion is coming up in a few days. ?

Hmm, I don't know. I'm rather fond of the guest star. Bat is noble and brave and just the right amount of sarcastic.  Oh, and Cass is pretty great too. ?

Spy did a tremendous amount of work on all of these, actually.  We wrote all of the scenario and dialogues together but the technical aspect of porting Cass and Bat into my game was all his achievement (and fixing textures, and creating custom assets, and making sure I don't break my Skyrim completely while trying to get things to work ?) So he definitely should be getting a whole lot of credit!?

Are you trying to insinuate that liver can't be a dessert?

So here's the unexpected cross-over. And a full fledged one ! Loved it from the beginning till the end, with constant humor (the guards, the game's over Cass's past and identification skills, her "investigation stills". But the technical execution was also excellent, with colored shots, and on point dialogues (though Devianna's font is smaller than Spy's, I think we can recognize both styles in those). And a slowly unveiling totally super secret plot. Anyway, a charming and highly funny duo. Awaiting for the next part ! :smiley:

Here's my favorite  :

Malicia : « Hi Cassidey ! Hi Kiki ! I'm very glad to see you two getting along ! I'm very sure Cassidey would like Mr Harkon parties too ! :classic_happy: »

Thank you for the kind comments, Tirloque! ?  Writing the dialogues and coming up with the scenario was indeed a lot of fun both for myself and Spy. We saw that Kiki's and Cassidey's personalities are a perfect match for a story, seeing as they are both rather unusual, a bit naive, often overly optimistic and in general just see the world in their own way. ? The plot is indeed super secret! Whatever awaits us in Part 2?! ? ?

 

Author: Dear Malicia, I'm not sure Mr Harkon is emotionally and mentally ready to have Cassidey attend his parties. ? Trying to explain to other vampires the presence of a Paladin in his castle might be slightly problematic.  On the other hand, such small insignificant details like 'common sense' have never stopped Kiki or Cass before. ?

Here's my favorite  :

 

 

Yup the dialogue writing was split pretty evenly with most of Cassidey's lines from me, most of Kiki's from Devi and the NPCs a pretty solid mix. To me it's super obvious who wrote what because of our different styles but that may be because I was there for the writing ?. I also learned why Devianna uses a smaller font when it came time for me to try to fit some of Kiki's lines on a single page for my half ?.

 

I agree that this is one of her best looking entries to date, she really did a great job with her screens and I have developed a newfound appreciation for her "set decoration" with Jaxonz, I kind of feel bad for never really noticing it before but on some level I think that's also a testament to how good she is at making everything look perfectly natural and like it belongs wherever she puts it!

Awww shucks :classic_blush:. Thank you for the compliment.  I do tend to use Jaxonz more and more to set the scenes (mostly because I can't really do special effects and all the other wonderful and fancy stuff ?)  and it's always improvisation galore.?   But Cassidey looks great in any setting even if there is just a blank wall behind her, so making screenshots with her was an absolute delight. ☺️

But still ... I am wondering what punishment she intends to deliver. ?

Due to RL I have to wait for later tonight to read the seconds part. So there's still a surprise for me in it.

 

Will the naughty boys receive a thoroughly spanking ? Bare back? :classic_happy: Her gauntlets should do miracles in that section. :classic_laugh:

Spy came up with "Lady Casserole" and I was laughing so much that I couldn't continue with our dialogue writing for a bit. ?
Happy that you enjoyed the story and since 2nd part is now published you can read the super mysterious conclusion any time you like. ?

Yup, that was the first scene we actually wrote together (their individual lead ins to the first meeting we did on our own after coming up with the general idea) and a good example of the fun that can come out of collaboration- Devianna came up with the line about the books not featuring her specifically and I played off of that.

Ok, so I was really confused when I saw Cassidey thinking she was from another blog, but then assumed it was you. Somehow I didn’t catch it was a collab with Spy.

 

it was a nice surprise however! Her goofy mannerisms still there!

Hehe, I imagine it might've been a bit confusing at first. Since we wanted to keep the collaboration a surprise, we decided not to include any mention of it in the foreword and let the readers find it out by themselves. ?

Cassidey is certainly as charming and heroic as ever!  Glad you liked it! ?
