Last week’s question was: “What would be the Nerdiest Sex Scenario You Could Think of?” Our most frequent and most succesful commenter Mordrun has the winning answer. Mordrun said:
You meet a great nerdy girl who knows all the right stuff. She reads the same comics you read, she likes the same movies, she can hold her own when arguing the finer points of Han shooting first. She even loves Cosplay. Nothing could be going better when you discover she likes to mix her Cosplay with her amourous intentions.
Then the whole thing crashes down. She likes to Cosplay the female version of male characters. You think, Ok, I can handle that, who doesn’t like looking at sexy Han Solo or female stormtroopers with bare midriffs? Then it happens. She walks into your bedroom as a female Star Fleet captain. She likes to stay “in character” and insists you to call her Captain Picard as you hesitently touch that smooth, bald, head. (Wait, yes, the carpet matches the drapes, “shudder.”) “Make it so number one!” she bellows in a suprisingly accurate accent. Things get progressively worse as she creates costumes for you as well, Bearded Riker, Mirror Universe Spock to her Spock, Slave Princess Leia to her Jabba the Hutt, Yoshi to her Mario.
Lets congratulate Mordrun on submitting such a nerd bastard worthy answer. For this awesome submission Mordrun wins a prize from our partner SPLITREASON.COM.
