And Now Here's The Blood-Drinking Part Of The Story
Magdalena really started to settle into her new life as a goddess. She ramped up the sadistic sex acts and dabbled with a bit of blood drinking here and there. It's interesting to think about how the mind could get to that point, but I suppose I did the same thing with blue cheese. For years, I couldn't touch the stuff, but one night I got drunk, dipped a buffalo wing in it, and never looked back. So Magdalena was having, as historians call it, "a real blue cheese moment," and she was now into being a goddess who did weird sex stuff to poor people and drank blood.
But as we saw with the Hernandez brothers before, people eventually grew kind of sick of this shit. Still lacking a shred of proof, a couple of the townsfolk wanted out. Unfortunately, it wasn't that easy. Magdalena and the brothers had pretty successfully brainwashed most of their followers, and had achieved that cult milestone of being a bunch of weird people hanging out who were ready to kill anyone who wasn't down with them being a bunch of weird people hanging out.
So the rest of the group captured these two unbelievers and brought them before Magdalena. As a show of power, she ordered that they be put to death before the other members, thus beginning her rise as a full-on psychopath.
Human Sacrifices And Other Wholesome Activities Commenced
Magdalena loved the high and power that this position as "symbol of earth as both creator and destroyer" afforded her, and leaned into it. For her, orgies simply weren't going to cut it anymore. She was now thinking about getting into human sacrifice, and began asking that nonbelievers or anyone who essentially wanted to leave this increasingly toxic multiplayer video game lobby be offered up before her. And these sacrifices involved all the greatest hits: beatings, burnings, and stabbings by all members of the cult.
