Tell me something… do you root for the bad guy? Is an evil laugh a work of art for you? Do masks count as casual wear? Do you enjoy beating PETA members to death with baby cows? Do you have trouble fitting both testicles in your thong? Do you sometimes find yourself using the phrase “quake in buttery fear”?
If you answered yes to any of those, this might be the place for you. Except for the thong thing which could be dangerous if people start writing Dr. Seuss erotica. This is still the place for you, but I can provide little relief for you from this dimension.
Yeah, another dimension. Lucky you. A dimension of sight. A dimension of sound. A dimension of smells. Bad smells. Freaky smells. Anal smells. Smells you don’t have to sniff because you’re not here, man! Luckily for you, I, the Great and Devious Psycho Gecko, have acquired a device allowing me to share my adopted dimension with you. Let my eyes be your eyes. My ears be your ears. My fists be your fists. My sphincter be your sphincter. Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your rears!
Now sit them right down in that chair every Wednesday and Sunday and enjoy a trip through life with an unrepentant, murderous supervillain. You were expecting a heroic figure forced down a dark path, fighting to be a good man despite society forcing him into evil acts? Well cut that shit out right now. Tie up your kiddies in the other room and hold on to your sphincters. It’s time for World Domination in Retrospect!
If you would like to email Psycho Gecko, drop a line at the unlikely-named address firstname.lastname@example.org and it’ll get to him. Alternatively, film yourself saying his name three times into a mirror in the bathroom while wearing a bra on your head. It won’t summon him or anything, but it makes me laugh to think about.

Just for the record, I think you’ve now hit the point where an archive page or list of posts would be good.
A pleasure to meet you, Psycho.
Nice to meet you too, Melinda Atlas. If you don’t mind me asking, how did you find my little corner of the web?
I’ve seen it a few times on WebFictionGuide. One day I just clicked! Glad I did.
Reading Worm again right now, and I’m so glad glad you decided to start writing. I just read your comment about why you weren’t writing anything, and this is an awesome turn of events.
I like to think my stuff is a nice break from the bleakness of Worm. On the one hand, you have the story of an unrepentant mass murdering psychopathic serial killer. On the other, a tragically heroic teenager trying her best to do good. The serial killer’s tale is the lighter of the two.
Also, at least a few of my predictions did pan out in the end, which is a funny little bonus if you go back over all that. Then again, I wouldn’t hold it against you if you glossed over things. The comments section became quite a read itself.
And while I’m at this responding business, feel free to read World Domination in Retrospect as well, where life is wonderful all the time and I just can’t wait to see those nice young men in their clean white coats and they’re coming to take me away, ha ha!
Hello Mr. Gecko,
Are you up for doing me a favour? I’d love to interview you and post it to my blog in a new feature I’ll be doing:
In the words of Raul Julia: “Of course!”
Haha, just got your email. Will have the reply & questions for you Monday. Thanks!

Echem. As an amatory lurker, I think I’ve saved up enough goodwill to do this:
NANANANANA I HAVE FANART AND YOU DON’T!
Okily dokily. Fanart of me?
Fanart in general.
Cool. Now, to the Worm! I have to make up for seeing Grinvader’s arrival too late to welcome him for the last update.
I have no idea what you just said. And the Worm section was amazing.
Mr. Gecko I actually hate commenting because I feel like a dick when I do. The reason I have done this is for 5 reasons 2 of which are why I feel like a dick. The first I would like to say I love your blog and am enjoying it immensely I read through the entire first 2 years in like 1 day and enjoyed it. I loved all the people in your life from Venus and Maoi to Carl and Honky Tonk.
second I’m here to ask if you could do some spot checks before you release your posts the reason why I’m saying this isn’t for me (I’m dyslexic and me and punctuation don’t get along anyway), but for future readers. I suggested your blog to a friend and he enjoyed the story of it, but felt that with some light editing you could make your story much easier for those more grammar nazi inclined.
The 3rd thing is for me try to remember that even the super powered people in your story like Dead Meat and Killbasa are still human. Launching someone from the east coast area of the United States on a missile at the arctic would kill them even if they were attached to the old V1 missiles the Germans made in WW2 the impact alone would have killed them(which only have a range of a few hundred miles at best). I’m sure you could build a much better missile then the V1 from a coffee maker. An intercontinental ballistic missile like the ones you made even without a warhead would still make a splattering of whoever was underneath it when it landed, and I’m sure it would be the same for whoever would be riding it. I am not saying that super beings can’t survive such treatment but killbasa and Dead Meat as far as I could tell had no abilities of any such sort that would allow them to survive the crash. Holdout surviving his crash was kind of funny and it wasn’t like he was launched 3,500 miles just a few blocks.
The fourth thing I would like to ask or suggest is for a possible forum. Jawz translations .com is a website of a writer as well as a translator and he uses http://www.createaforum.com/ for his forum needs and its free to use. Yes I know it would be a hassle to set up but you could see if people want to talk about your story.
The fifth and final thing is to check out this list of books/fanficts/and translated novels http://bato.to/forums/topic/19625-where-can-i-find-recommendations/ . I dont read the american novels that I can get a hold of however it’s a good place to gain inspiration. This list is how I found your story and I would suggest trying out some of the foreign stuff from Korea or Japan they tend to have interesting characters over there.
TLDR: I love your story, Try to remember to keep realism in your story, Do a grammar check over stuff before you post it, think about getting a forum, check out that reading list they even have websites for stories and many of them are blog based. ( I would suggest starting with until death, Legendary moonlight sculptor, and Mushoku Tensei)
Thanks for the comment. I know I have some problems with typos. Some of them get through, but I’ll gladly fix any that people find. On the other hand, I word things extremely informally and sometimes sacrifice proper spelling so as to make my own words, a pun, or some other humor. Even without errors, I’ll get on some people’s nerves for that.
I haven’t done much in the way of promotion. This here is just about the best example of “Your Mileage May Vary,” so even the promotion others have give me at Web Fiction Guide or at this other forum doesn’t tend to attract a lot of permanent readers.
Feel free to speak up more as you follow along, and welcome to my crazy little corner of the multiverse.
I’ve been here awhile just been lurking around. I got a few friends to read through your stuff already.
You’re Nr.1 Psycho. One of the most entertaining thing i’ve ever read.
Good luck on your continued interdimensional blogging.
Dear PS (I am currently unsure if I should preface this with a sir or ma’am) I write a superhero serial called Second String heroes.
You can find it at:
I’d like your permission to link your blog on mine so I can share it with both people that follow me and my handful of lurkers. I thought it better to ask before I link to be polite. And to not accidentally offend you causing you make your way to my home dimension and make me regret crossing you.
Your groveling pleases the Great and Devious Psycho Gecko. Link away!
Woah! You write web serials? Fuckin awesome man! I’ve seen your comments on wildblow’s web serial, Worm and my god man I laughed my ass off every time I saw them! I’m glad you’re doing web serials, because I know they’re going funny as hell! Can you I’m excited with my over usage of the exclamition point!!!!!!!!!!!
I’m glad you found your way over here, then, duckling. Hopefully I’ll live up to expectations that have driven you mad with exclamation lust. I actually started while Worm was still going on. People kept on insisting I do so, to the point where one of them went out of his way to predict I was about to “blow smoke” and once again make an excuse not to. At which point, I pulled an Ozymandias from Watchmen and revealed that I’d already started one.
Dun dun duuuuuuun!
Please sort the space after the triple dots. It is driving me nuts!
Also, can I find you on other social media? (Twitter, FB)? I have enjoyed your style since I stumbled upon your comments under Worm and have been an amused casual follower ever since.
I do have a twitter, @PsychopompGecko, but I hardly use it. And I’ll look into those dots. I’m not seeing any on this page, so did you mean any in particular? I’m always open for correcting typos whenever they’re found.
At the top, the first sentence. 🙂
Yeesh, almost makes you think I’m blind. Fixed that. And feel free to let me know if you spot any more typos. Some people seem to think it would upset me, but I appreciate it and would rather fix it so as to not embarrass myself any further.
Don’t you worry. 🙂 OOh, do check Grammarly, it is an add on which is not bad.
Ironically enough, masks now are casual wear.
