Every potion has side effects.
Some are benign--you light up a bit for a couple months or years after using a dark-sight potion.
Some are weird--you grow horns after using some strength potions.
Some are dangerous-- think fire potions.
They carry over the placenta, & sometimes they stick FOREVER on the kids.
Tifa's mother was a fighter on a rough circuit; she used every potion she could get. The kid lives in a reinforced room with flame-proof toys. She's started asking for a pet... #tootfic

@aldersprig this is horrifying
@InspectorCaracal I know <<.
Should it be CW'd?
I dunno? I wasn't being passive aggressive, just horrified. >.>
@InspectorCaracal I knew you weren't, you don't do that. 🍏
I was second-guessing posting it if I wasn't the only one that found it horrifying.
@aldersprig that is your decision though
dark fic, mention of sexual assault Show more
@aldersprig also, lyn, you came up with *and write* stories about magical rape resulting in forced impregnation, your bar for finding things horrifying is NOT lower than most peoples
if you find it horrifying, chances are the only reason other people wouldn't is if they don't understand what they're reading
@aldersprig in this case the main horror elements are just that the cost/benefit of potions is way too expensive and yet people use them anyway and doom their offspring (why is she even having a child while working a fight circuit? or are the side effects permanent? in which case the cost/benefit is WAY too expensive?????) to being mutants who likely won't be able to socialize with other humans
@aldersprig Was the choice of Tifa having a fighter mother deliberate? There's a rather popular brawler called Tifa in fiction...
@JordiGH nope! I keymashed a name ! also, in one of my extant settings, fighters use potions to buff
Get her a dragon
