Into the Gambler's Den Part 2


SpyVsPie

1,993 views

Well as I said in part 1 of the Gambler's Den saga this story was really a continuation of a lot of the plot points from the previous entries so in a lot of ways I think the posting of this entry marks the true spiritual conclusion of the reboot introduction! It also marks the first time since April that I have no more Cass backlog left, everything that has been made has been posted, we are all caught up! So I hope you all enjoyed the intro to Cassidey's new world and new cast! Where should we go from here? Comments? Thoughts? Suggestions? Perverted ideas for dirty situations to toss Cass into? Feel free to post them all below and thanks for reading!

Was that a Findus beef lasagne reference in the first few panels? That's got to be a Findus horse "beef" lasagne reference. Didn't they practically go out of business (or at least get banned over here) for selling horse meat as beef in their ready made lasagnes?

Quite an enjoyable and sexy chapter.  Poor Bran just can't catch a break, but at least he's always there to offer an (accidental) hand when Cass really needs it.

 

As for future ideas - I think continuing with the theme of the dynamic trio "helping" people could be fun for at least a handful of storylines.  Could fit with the plan to have smaller semi-contained story arcs and continue fleshing out the main characters.  

 

Random more specific ideas:

  • "curing" a werewolf
  • catching a thief.... specifically a panty thief
  • a chapter told from Bat's POV (now that he's silent but obviously still has serious personality) - perhaps they could find him a friend that doubles as Bran's equally ornery steed?

I can tell you had a lot of fun writing this story.  My favorite part was the Bandits and Bat.  Hope it becomes a recurring thread in this new reboot! 

 

The Vampiress didn't seem like too bad of a person... she just needed a little blood and didn't even drain Cass dry.  What a horrid fate for a thoughtful and responsible vampire. 

 🧛‍♀️🔥💀

Also, Cass definitely needs to get laid.

Amazing as always!

 

As far as ideas go, I'm certainly curious about what perverse activities Moll will get up to in service to the witch. Also, I fully endorse any situation that leads to Cassidey getting hot and heavy with some monsters! Trolls, Chaurus, Rieklings, they're all great!

Guess we won't get to see a vampire version of Cass. That would be interesting how you would handle that like part of a Cass multiverse. So you would have Yarl Cass, Stormcloak or Imperial soldier Cass, Orc Cass, Elf Cass, Werewolf Cass, Secret Agent Cass, Arc Mage Cass and oh man I can go on an on. :lol::heart:;):thumbsup:

"Darling, I ended the glamour twenty minutes ago"  *dies*  That's one truly slow brain processing right there.    I'll miss the red haired vampiress..she was gorgeous!  And Bat kicking the two bandits' asses..LMFAO.

If you remember, there was still this issue with the mysterious "Boner Thief" . Though we don't know yet any certain victims, nor the culprit, ... just that Cass', her superior investigation techniques, her honest instincts, brilliant Cass-o-logics, Bat, some sticky fluids and some evil villains are involved.

 

 

And on another note, I would like to see The Ghost again. :classic_happy:

That was quite the entertaining entry indeed, with a continued tribute to the Vampires Lair episode. Anyway, your extrasmooth ENB and textures setup was great for FF applications, and you manage to emphasize the sensuality of it by a great deal, while still having Cassidey dish her irresistible comments all along (the fingering revolving gag shenanigans were particularly hilarious 😂). The fighting part was nice as well, even if it didn't come from the expected protagonists. XD And you might have planted the seed for a bit of future trouble for Cassidey, since the spinning and excessive brightness felt upon exiting the bordello could hint for continued consequences for her bite. I kinda disagree over the vampires being that vulnerable to paladins blood though (otherwise we would've lost Kiki a long time ago :classic_wink:), but that's your lore. Great chapter ! :D👌

 

Malicia : « I very see there's a lot of comments, so I won't say anything.

 

               But I very knew going honey-honey with another gal was bad of the health, so that vampire gal had it coming. :classic_sleepy: »

🤔 Obviously, this requires more story, why Cass' is so special top-of-the-class paladin-ish. Another flashback episode, perhaps 🤔

And I suggest unscrupulous speculation until then :classic_biggrin: ..  (might be a plot twist later for the Vicereeve to see an advantage for herself in that?)

:classic_huh: what's wrong with that?  ...

:classic_dry: And obviously, it was an inescapable trap, that Cass' lured her in. (*)  So, it might be a misjudgement to insinuate Ms. Vampire was in control of her situation here.

Well we veteran readers already know the whereabouts of Cass and Gabriel paladins educations.

 

And unless Spy starts retconning Disney style, Kiki did also bite Cass. :classic_tongue:

Could be a similar joke that was used in Faldar's Tooth, where the bandits want meat and the chef finds a source, though it wasn't called beef.

 

I'm not familiar with Findus beef but there is a stereotype I'm aware of that claims some (a lot?) of "beef" in Britian is really horse.

Which MUST be picked up in another story. :classic_biggrin: E.g. it is somewhat under Cass' control? Or is it possible that a true Daughter of Coldharbour only gets a bit of stomach (Blessing of Molag Bal), where the common Ms. Vampire had no chance at all? 🤔

Yes, she was quite amiable. Even caring, that her victims apparently got at least something out of it, before they died. Perhaps she has some relatives to appear later?

Thankfully nothing needs to be retconned 😅.  It was mentioned in a few flashbacks that Kiki is a daywalker vampire that received the blessing of Molag Bal without any violence. As a result she doesn't have the taint and can walk in the sun and eat human food (though it doesn't give her any nutrition and she still needs blood to survive).  At the same time she's weaker than regular pure-blooded vampires and her main power is vampiric charm. Cassidey's blood is quite potent and infused with holy magic which would be damaging to any regular vampire. But since Kiki isn't a 'regular vampire', she simply got a stomach ache as a result (and also remained hungry AND is still cursed 😰). So we are all good on the lore continuity here 😉.

 

Now back to the actual story chapter.  Did I mention that I love Bat? - I love Bat! For a character that doesn't really talk he has incredible personality.  Those screens with his clop-clop-clop / munch-munch-munch are hilarious no matter how many times I look at them. 🤣  And Bran is such a sweetheart and a gentleman.  So professional too.  His life took a reaaally interesting turn the moment Cass walked into it. 😅

 

All of your screenshots are beautiful, but those sunset ones are absolutely gorgeous. Thank you for sharing your wonderful work with us and as always I'm looking forward to more Cass! 😍

That's an explanation for Kiki indeed.

 

However, theoretically, what I highlighted in bold is supposed to be mostly true for all TES vampires. :classic_wink:

Raise your hand if you want to see the red haired vampiress return.  Ala Lestat after Claudia poisoned him and threw him in a swamp...just better looking, I hope.  XD   And didn't have to drink dry all those swamp creatures...ugggh.

Love Cassidey’s personality, and enjoy reading her dialogues.

I admit, I was expecting g Cassidey to admit she had a very garlicky meal after the vampire disintegrated.
