tldr; This is what happens when you play Rimworld on permadeath mode
Told fiance I was going to do a permadeath run and see how far I got since I reload a lot. He tells me how I should make them all gay and I go YEAH. So I make four colonists, Rozalina, Sera, Blitz, and Nicky. Well Rosie and Sera here start flirting off the bat but keep rebuffing each other back and forth and never actually start dating. They’re angsty like that
Along comes a helpless colonist running from some pirates and we go yeah we’ll help you. Only Sera gets downed and then fucking carried off by the ONLY PIRATE we don’t manage to kill while Nicky is running after them trying to catch her.
We get a ransom note but of course I don’t have the tech yet to build a trade beacon in order to pay it (we DEFINITELY could have afforded it). And so they kill Sera.
So my headcanon is that Rosie actually ran off alone to this raider base and tried to fight through them to save Sera but they just manage to end up dying together from bullet wounds. I would have made her actually do it but my caravan button isn’t working because mods.
