Strata


To quote Oscar Wilde, "I don't have any underwear on, and I don't care!"

E

the name of this made me think of the episode of Adventure Time

Feedback is appreciated! Please, give your honest opinion. Please do not judge the entire story on the first few chapters, for they are not an excellent indicator for the rest of it.

3535989 thanks! I'm wondering if I should continue this story though....

3540240 eh, i didn't know how much time it would take to have two fics running at the same time. That and juggling schoolwork, (senior years, crap-ton of work) and domestic commitments. It's difficult.

Thanks so much! I really appreciate it.

I take that Chris decided to punch Alex/Discord in the nose. :rainbowlaugh:

God this is an amazing idea and wrote amazingly, love it

"Who is this?"
"Are you the owner of the gem store on the intersection of Honde and Marlboro?"
he was a little surprised. The tenderness of voice... Must be Cadence!
"Yes? Is this Cadence?"
"yes! good to hear from you again. The little board outside your shop says you're open today, but the sign says 'closed.' Are you in the back?"
Oh dear.
"Y-yes! One moment, I'm just... having a shower."
"A shower? in your store?"
"hmmmah, yes! Personal hygiene is of utmost importance to me!"
Oh wow, Sombra. Bachelor's in geography, seven years experience, certified excavator, and that's the best you can do? AND WHAT WAS THAT 'HMMMMAH' NOISE?!
to his surprise, Cadence replied cheerily.
"Good to see someone taking care of themselves, especially in this sweltering weather. I like a man who takes his hygiene seriously."
"You do?! I mean, yes! Good. So do I, actually."
"you like men who have good hygiene?"
"uh, yes! just look at my friend, Alex."
idiotidiotidiotidiotidiotidi-
"Sure. So... Should I come back later?"
"No! I mean, no. I'll be right out."
"sure!"
she then hung up.
taking a moment to wipe the sweat from his forehead, he looked around a little before doing a wolf-whistle.
Nicely handled, Sombra. Knew you could do it.

Why does this remind me of someone I know,
...

IT WASNT ME

Adorable, simply adorable. :rainbowkiss:

No problem, you make saying how awesome this story is so easy for us

6652046
you're just too good. I know this may feel like I'm just dumping another bucket of warm, soapy compliments and thank-yous on the people who read the story, but you and the others who take the time out to read really do make me a lot more inspired to continue, and oh, do I want to continue. MAJOR plot developments are coming up, and I look forward to writing it as I hope you look forward to reading it!

"hm? not really. Did you find her scary?"
"well... the way she walked right up to me and was so tall... She looked at me like she was looking through the bars of a prison towards the person who murdered her parents."
"I don't know. She used to be a judge before she retired early, taking up a day job so she could raised Trace."
"huh."
"committed any crimes lately, Professor?" Cadence asked slyly.
"hah, not that I can remember."

Hm
Not
Well
Huh
Committed
Hah
Just missing some upper case letters, but still nice chapter, wonder what was up with Cadence?

6653741
Yeah, sorry about the grammar. I like to think I have high standards, but today I had to run to a meeting with friends, and I really wanted to finish the chapter. Sorry! I hate reading badly-edited fics too man, I'll have to up my standards!

HEHEHE THE PLOT THICKENS

-guys? What happened?

The new chapter was intended to flesh out sombra as a character, but someone removed a like and added a dislike.

I mean- I'm not personally offended, I'm just not sure about what went wrong.

-did people think this was a ship fic? It kinda is, in a way, but it's more pseudo-backstory alternate universe stuff about Sombra.

-where did I go wrong in this? Oh well, nothing to do but push on. I hope some people will stick with me as I try to make the story a bit more interesting.

Much love

-the slightly deflated Strata

Maybe italicize the dream so it's easier to tell, cause dreams are thoughts, but still good chapter, like the backstory

Thanks man. I'll keep that in mind.
