Villain thread afterwords
So... This thread escaleted A LOT.
The day after I finished the one-shot was supposed to be a rest day. A day I'd spend doing nothing too productive. So of course, right after I tweeted how happy I was to have a day off finally, I got another idea.
Wouldn't it be funny if I just randomly, unannounced, started a random thread of just smut?
So I decided to go with that. I could always just end a pure smut scene when ever I wanted, right? (Note to self: It will never be just that simple)
When I was thinking about how to do it, I got an idea of making the kidnapping scene. Just because. When I talked about it with friends on Discord someone mentioned the reverse poll idea. And my brain went from "lets make something super casual" to "ideaideaideadrawrdawidea" really quickly.
Lets make the first poll with an option so horrific people will instantly catch up with what I'm doing. Maybe I can change the pattern after that and so on!
Unlike I thought the majority of voters didn't catch up with what was going. So I decided to run it trough with the pattern, trying to make the bad options really bad to make it noticeable and include really good options for better outcome. My whole focus was on trying to get everyone notice what was going on without actually saying it. That included clues in the story dialogue:
Aww~ Our audience seems to really enjoy knife play <3
It's lucky the option for you to be killed got eliminated
But this is what the audience wanted
And so on.
The puzzles were something I added after making a casual riddle. It wasn't really meant to be anything serious, but people got really into figuring it out. So of course that to me meant I should make it an actual thing. And also I wanted to include some good chances to help Deku out. And adding Bakugou to the story was just a perfect way to do that.
At some point I started to notice what had happened. I spent the first few days of making the thread in horrible tooth pain so drawing horrible things was a good way to deal with it. But then, with saltwater, the pain just went away.
And oh my god that moment the reality hit me hard.
So in the end it was a combination of pain, prank gone wrong and determination that led us to the ending we got. But at least it's a story that would have never been made by me without all these pieces coming together creating chaotic evil.
Thank you all for reading <3 It truly was a fun ride and I had a blast. Even tho' I'm soon gonna read the whole thing myself and finally face the clusterfuck I've created.
