The Goddess stared at the tiny mote of light floating in the air. She looked at the hovering, glowing panes that she had summoned to record the choices of the diminutive soul.
A series of emotions flickered through her being; confusion, wonder, respect, admiration, and just a touch of jealous indignation.
"How?" she asked, narrowing her metaphysical gaze. When one was the Goddess of Dungeons, having a Dungeon Core as your default form sounded like a perfectly good and rational idea. Not for the first time she lamented having chosen a glowing, crystalline orb set in a snake's mouth as her divine avatar.
The mote gave the glowball equivalent of a shrug, "I dunno. It's just something that seems to happen? When you create something, very often you're thick in the middle of it and can't see the forest for the trees. When you make a bunch of things over a long period of time you're not thinking of all the ways they can mesh with things you've made in the past, and cannot predict the ways they will work with things you make in the future."

DiGiorno Bacon Me Crazy Stuffed Crust 5/10
DiGiorno Pepperoni Stuffed Crust 5.5/10
DiGiorno Pepperoni Pan Pizza 7/10
The Red Baron Thin and Crispy Bacon Lovers is not one I will be getting again. I didn't taste much in the way of bacon, most of what I tasted was smoke, I also got occasional tastes of "shitty grey pepperoni" that I'd encountered on a few other pizza brands.

Writing Prompt: You’ve just left the doctor’s office in the early morning to find a folded piece of paper left on the bench in the hall. Picking it up, it reads “You’ve been chosen as our next candidate,
! By touching this paper, you have agreed to accept the terms of the unbreakable contract.”
"It's not legally binding." I protested.
The dark-robed man chuckled most sinisterly, caressing the heavy book in his hands whose heavy cover was stitched together from what looked to be human skin scraps sewn together. There was also an eyeball, which rolled at the dark sorcerer began to speak.
"Fool! Your mere caress across one of its torn out, hallowed pages legally binds you to work in the Necromantic Business Mines of the Greater Beaurucratic Empire of Bibliotopia! You have touched them, now you must abide by the Tomes of Service!"
"THE TOMES OF SERVICE! THE TOMES OF SERVICE!" a multitude of voices cried out, hooded figures emerging from the shadows.

Pizza Corner, Non-Vacuum Wrapped 7
Green Mill, Tavern Style 3.5
Real 'Za 6.75
I didn't like the Outsider's Pizza. The crust had a rather nice texture and there was enough sauce on it to be able to taste the flavor, both of which would have been points in its favor were it not for the second kind of pepperoni on this pizza.
I'm not quite sure what it is that's different, but I really did not like it. It reminded me a great deal of the flavor on the cheapo Totino's pizzas.
I have no idea what it might have been had the pizza been without them, but the second sort of pepperoni makes this one pretty close to inedible.
The only reason this is rated higher than Totino's is that it didn't fall apart on me while eating it.

[It makes things all the more jarring when suddenly the lights go out for a moment, then when they come on again someone is sitting in the chair. Tanned, blonde hair in a pixie bob that looks cemented in place, a headband and matching floral print dress, and… oh.]
[The orange eyes and the grin that has far too many teeth, though they're white, overly large, and square instead of sharp, pointy, and/or serrated tell us that this is Claudia Kajara with a wig and a fuckton of makeup.]
[The smile, for once, doesn't reach her eyes and she seems sad and almost on the verge of tears.]
"It's not a fun time for you, is it Joe? With your contributions ignored, your hard work cast aside, and the time and effort you put in unrewarded."
[Despite the sorrow in her eyes, Claudia's voice is strangely happy and chipper.]
"That's okay. Well, you feeling that way. It's not okay to be dumped on. But it sure is a thing that's happening alright."
"Because now is not a fun time. This particular stretch of time has taken fun, wrapped it up in duct tape, stuffed it in George Clooney's bum, wrapped George Cloony up in duct tape, stuck him in a padded wooden crate and shipped him off to that warehouse at the end of Raiders of the Lost Arc."
