I think if we do go to the libarby, we should read something fun to clear Willamina's head over something to research that could potentially heighten Willamina' stress level, especially since she was considering picking up smoking which we dont want her to do. This is supposed to be our fun day after all. Maybe something like the tabloids to laugh at, or a graphic novel

> Libarby
You decide to head to the Libarby. It’s a SWELTERING hot day today, but you just chill the air near you to make things just right. After walking for a little bit it gets hot again, you feel your phone heating up too. So you turn down the temperature even more. It’s a bit of a drain on your power, but it’s easily maintainable. You imagine now that this is ISABELLA’S SPIRIT and feel smug at ruining it’s plans to ruin your day.

The Libarby is also hot, but with your temperature reduction it’s less so. Xana’s there and she gives you a friendly nod as you walk in. You decide to head over to the TABLOIDS section to see if anything new or weird his happening. The Celebrity mags are typically garish and stupid, this is why you find them to be a good release. It’s nonsensical, guilt-free fun. Well, as fun as SCANDALS can be. Plus you’re never sure which headlines are real or not. There are headlines like the following:

DEENA CARTWRIGHT, SINGLE?
WAKE KNEE, FLAMINGO MOLESTER?
MYSTERIOUS AI FROM EDGE OF SOLAR SYSTEM GREETS HUMANS, HOAX?
DUNGEONS ARE OUR FRIENDS? MORE LIKELY THEN YOU THINK.
POPULAR PABE FIGHTER RETIRES, IS THE RING TOO HOT FOR HER TO HANDLE?
LEMMY CHAVOWITS, WASHED OUT ALCOHOLIC ON THE RISE AGAIN?


The rest of the titles don’t really speak to you. You also flip through the graphic novels section. Quite a few of them have been checked out but you look at the e-book listing too. These are the following ones you find:

BRAIN WORMS - Comic anthology
PABE SMUTWORKS - Licensed smut fanfic of actual PABE fighters (You’ve read this 20 times)
MOBILE STEED CALVARY: FOR GREAT JOUSTICE - It’s the first arc
REINCARNATED AS A MAID SEMPAI - You’ve also read this around 10 times
DON’T READ THIS BOOK - A horror comic


You could probably spend the day reading through some of these, but you also spy out of the corner of your eye the SURVIVAL section and notice a few books on WILDERNESS SURVIVAL, SPELUNKING, and LONG TERM UNDERGROUND TRAVELING. This section isn’t as popular in LYST as it is in DONJON, but you could probably access anything in a similar vein if you felt like researching this. Not that you need it with the WINNEBAGO and all. And your nearly endless supply of water, and ability to purchase rations and store them in an inter-spatial ring.

What do you read? (feel free to suggest other headlines or books too)

Hey, wasn’t Lemmy’s actual dAUgHtA a PABE fighter - that Flicker character? Maybe she’s the one retiring? Two Chavowits stories in one news day might be connected somehow. That’s what RANDOM might say, anyway.

Fuck, now you’re in a BRAIN WORMS mood. Or PABE SMUT. Or both. Definitely both.

Okay, so now that we know Isabella's spirit is probably following us right now (phone heating up, things getting hotter) I vote we NOT look into anything related to dungeons or survival, at least not until Isabella leaves town or we have Cat with us to confirm there is a spirit with us or not. We don't want to be giving any hints to them to figure out what we're doing in our vacation time and letting Nunitus know.

>>1008662
Support on checking into the PABE article (wonder if Skidder, your favorite spider fighter, has something to do with it)
and the Lenny Chavowitz article. (Why doesnt that guy just give up show business already???)

After that, look into the the PABE Smut (so we can see what other fighters there are) and BRAIN WORMS.

Also, lets see who else is in the Libarby that we can talk to.

> Achievements?
You’ve still yet to get one, so the window is still closed. Though you’ve only had the power for like… barely a day and a half. The most you’ve done is throw the snowball and do some minor temperature adjustment. Maybe you need to do something more significant? Either way, It’s not really on your mind right now.

> POPULAR PABE FIGHTER RETIRES, IS THE RING TOO HOT FOR HER TO HANDLE?
You skim through the article, but a certain section pops out to you more then the rest.

After defeating SKIDDER in the ring, popular fighter FLICKER, AKA KELSEY CHAVOWITS, has decided to retire and not take up the HEROES LEAGUE offer to join them. Kelsey has refused all forms of interviews but her agent has informed us that she might make a return in a few years should the moons align correctly. Kelsey was reportedly seen having a breakdown mid-fight with SKIDDER, could these things be related. She’s a bit young to be going through menopause so perhaps she was on her period. No one knows why she had such an emotional and irrational change of mind. Some experts speculate-

You think that’s enough from that article. The author was starting to get misogynistic and that’s not your jam. Interesting that SKIDDER lost a fight. He’s your favorite spider PABE fighter after all. Even more shocking that the loss was to FLICKER. You never really liked her, she acted too much like a “HERO” and given what you’ve learned about the heroes league that bothers you more then you’d think. Though your feelings turn around a bit on her and SKIDDER. You think a bit more highly of her for rejecting the Hero’s League’s offer, and a bit less of SKIDDER now that you know.

> LEMMY CHAVOWITS, WASHED OUT ALCOHOLIC ON THE RISE AGAIN?
Another article, this one is shorter though.

LEMMY, popularly known for his work in the cult classic BRAIN WORMS, has announced that he’s planning on trying to produce a brand new, unrelated film. He says it’s been in the works and will go back to the roots being a SMALL INDEPENDENT FILM without the big budget. It’s his hopes that doing so will bring this series back to it’s roots and prevent a repeat of what happened to the brain worms franchise. Will his alcoholism get in the way with yet another performance? Or will he put down the sauce just long enough to bring us another masterpiece? Only time will tell.

You know that the series went on for 10+ Films, but only were really good for the first few, with a spike at the 5th, and a slow, steady decline at the 6th onward. You seriously wonder when this guy is going to give up on show-business. He’s ruined all of his contacts and there are even videos of public arguments between him and his DAUGHTAH. You’re not hopeful for his new performance, but if its good you’ll give it a watch. You wonder if there’s any relation with two CHAVOWITS being in the tabloids today but just shrug it off as a coincidence. Time to check out some comics.

> BRAIN WORMS - COMIC ANTHOLOGY
You check this one out and add it to your digital library. So you can read the first omnibus physically, and the rest online if you can’t make it back. Might make for some good reading when you’re in the dungeon and something to read today while you hang around.

The story follows the original protagonist of the BRAIN WORMS anthology. HEESH ASH. The BRAIN WORMS movies have an entirely different canon that branched off starting the 3rd movie when Lemmy started stealing the limelight. You think it’s a cooler story, and it avoids most of the supernatural elements the movies went into, instead supplementing it with pseudo science. The INFECTED end up getting powers later on, but the LIVING don’t. The comic was known to frequently kill off beloved characters, so you’re excited to give it a read.

> PABE SMUTWORKS
Now THIS, THIS is a book. Probably your favorite piece of literature that you keep tucked in a corner somewhere. You’ve got all the books that were ever made of this digitally and physically. They made around 5 SMUTWORKS. The actors and actresses were really gung-ho about it and leaned into it in their performances IRL. So it didn’t come as too much of a shock when they allowed writers to use their personas in CLOTHING DAMAGE and POWER FANTASY FUCKING scenarios. Just holding this book, the first issue, just sends a shiver down your spine and a heat to your loins. You take a quick look around. No one’s nearby. There’s just the Libarbian and a few other kin wandering the Libarby. You could sneak off to a corner and… just for a quick moment… You don’t think anyone would notice. You have done it before…

Do you sneak off to a quiet corner? Or do you go do something else?

If this happens I’m gonna roll a die to see if you get caught. Feel free to suggest who catches you!

But this is Willamina. She's so COOL, she be confident enough to do it. And if she's caught, her coolness can talk her out of trouble. And this will be good training for dungeon exploration! Work on our stealth!

And if someone catches her... Who else but Fivin? It's a running gag at this point, so Fivin is my main choice

(secondary choice is someone from the Ruffled Haunch we havent met yet, third choice Iraphena, but only because she predicted Willamina here.)

> Do it
You head off to a tucked away nook of the LIBARBY. It’s a cute and cozy little corner built into the wall, a nice cushion with an adjustable light. There’s a curtain, you pull it partially, but not all the way either, part of the excitement comes from the POTENTIAL to be seen. It’s partially obscured, so if someone DOES come by they might not realize what’s happening at first. You flip through the pages, reading a comic about EL SECRETO and a fighter called OBSCURA. She can go invisible, but still makes a shadow when she steps. The beginning is as you remember it. The two battling, EL SECRETO gaining the advantage, their clothes slowly being torn apart. Eventually EL SECRETO’S hard cock is revealed and with a flash he whips OBSCURA in the face. Her invisibility fades. She quivers in excitement as the rest of her clothes are torn off. At one point OBSCURA tries to remove his mask but then his signature catchphrase comes up.

EL SECRETO: THE. MASK. STAYS. ON.

You begin rubbing yourself in excitement, already moist from the tense build up and character development. You blush slightly and your breathing becomes heavy, but you don’t let out a moan. You flip through more stories and masturbate for a while, coming a few times, but this next one. Oh this next one will be a treat for you in mind and soul. It’s too bad you hear footsteps coming around the corner. If you could just… Almost…

Fivin turns the corner and sees you. You climax instantly and shudder a bit. Letting out a brief moan of pleasure. Fivin looks confused and wanders towards you. He can’t see below your waist, and you absentmindedly bring up your soaked hand and give him a wave, before realizing and dropping it back down. You hope he didn’t see that.

Fivin: Oh heya Willamina. Nicky wanted me to let you know when I saw you about the-
Fivin: *SNIFF* *SNIFF*
Fivin: What’s that smell?
You: About the what?
Fivin: Nevermind, uhhh yeah.
Fivin: Nicky said she got the paperwork sorted out, it’s ready for you whenever tomorrow.
Fivin: Left it in the Office.
Fivin: And your 3 months vacation pay also will be paid out on FRIDAY.
Fivin: It’s linked to the payroll system so you just gotta wait.
You: Cool, I’m in no hurry about that one though, I have enough saved up now.

Fivin takes a look at what you’re reading and blushes. That’s what he gets for being snoopy. He turns away and coughs and in that moment you wipe your hand enough so it’s not visibly wet. You also take a look at what he’s holding. You can’t quite read what the title is, something about -PNOSIS? You’re really bad at those anagrams and word puzzles though, so you don’t think about it too hard, you’re too COOL to worry about anything other than playing off your totally-not-jerk-off-session.

Fivin: Yeah, that issues just too uhhhh
You: HETERO?
Fivin: Yeah, or uh, too many p-p-puss- V-v-vaginoes for my like.
You: Oh you don’t like CAT GIRLS do ya?
Fivin: Anywayyyyyy. Oh, and she’ll tell you later probably but there’s 3 AWAKENED she’s looking into.
Fivin: 2 are planning on coming into the city on MONDAY or TUESDAY.
Fivin: The thirds a big IF, the fact that they even replied is kind of amazing.
You: Oh uh, thanks FIVEY.
Fivin: Hey… Only Nicky calls me that…
Fivin: Anyway, nice seeing you, have a good day WILLA!


He rushes away, you think hoping he got a one up on you with a doofy nickname. Willa’s kind of dumb, but you’ve heard worse. Goddess the one that called you Wilco got punched in the face. You think his name was RANDOM, eh, maybe it was RANDY. You only met him the one time and he couldn't pronounce your name and weren’t sure if it was a joke. You briefly wonder if one of the AWAKENED TOWN GUARDS, as you’re calling them in your head, is FLICKER. That would be kind of cool. You check to see if you left a mess, you didn’t everything localized to your panties and shorts, and walk to the front, checking out your books. It’s getting a little late, time flies when you’re jerking off as ANDREA would say.

You’re feeling a bit sleepy, so you head home to your front porch and decide that now’s the time for a nap. You don’t really dream all that often, but you are relaxed, so maybe you’ll have a brief 5 minute dream that’s transient and that you’ll not remember on waking. Who knows?

What do you dream about?

Sleep comes quickly to you. At first it’s the normal darkness that you’re used to. Then a thick fog. You’re wandering through the fog and you feel yourself change. Your hands are no longer these weird human-fleshy tubes. They’re feathered and white. Well, half white, half black. The scarring on your body takes on a white tinge. Soon, before you realize it, you’re flying with those wings. The mist is seemingly endless, with nothing in sight. You fly through it though, reveling in the freedom that only a bird can have. You let out a KAW, and another KAW sounds out near you.

> A Raven
Something visualizes in the mist, it’s a WING-KIN that looks like a raven. They seem shocked as you approach and fly around them. You can only KAW at them, and it’s now that you realize that you’re actually BIRD-SIZED. And you CAN’T TALK. You flutter up to the WING-KIN and land on their outstretched hand. They speak, but their language is incomprehensible to you. It ALMOST sounds like ENGLISH, but not really. It’s PHONETIC of some kind, but doesn't mash up with what you know. You take a closer look at them. They’re wearing a ridiculous pink WIZARDS HAT and have some seriously BLACK EYES. They’re also nude, but that’s a common Wing-Kin thing you think.

The Wing-Kin’s expression of CONFUSION changes to one of CURIOSITY. You greet the kin, but all that comes out is chirping and kaws. They greet you back, or give what you assume to be a greeting. A level of fanaticism you recognize to belong to most geniuses like your GRANDPA comes to mind in their expression. Like they’re calculating the endless meaning in your actions or existence or other nerd shit. You could fuck with them a little bit, or try to genuinely communicate, but it’s going to take some CREATIVITY either way.

We gotta give Willamina and Saba a heartwarming closure by wishing each other goodbye, and maybe Chi can help Willamina by giving her the destination name to her universe so Willamina can be reborn possibly as Chi's offspring or something when she reincarnates

OR MAYBE CHI COULD [LINK] WITH US TO BOOST OUR STATS AND HELP US IN THE DUNGEON IF SHE FIGURES OUT WHO WE ARE!

best way to communicate is with your FEATHERS

Pluck as many of your FEATHERS off your body as you can with your beak and/or talons, and arrange the feathers on the floor to spell out the words "WILLAMINA III" with an arrow pointed at you on the floor... or maybe just "WILL III"

Maybe Chi will pluck some of her own feathers to help us do this faster? whatever the case, once we finish trying to reveal who we are, Hopefully she'll [UNDERSTAND]

Willamena probably doesn't know morse code, and has no reason to expect that Chi does if she's speaking a completely alien language. Willamena also isn't enough of a nerd to try to establish mutual understanding from first principles by starting with prime numbers or anything.

Write your name with your plucked feathers.

If you can't do it on the ground due to it being too foggy or something, arrange your plucked feathers on the wingkin's wing to spell your name. A wingkin's wingspan seems large enough to have us do so in comparison to our size and our small feathers. After all, their wingspan need to be big in order to fly their human sized bodies, plus she is holding us right now with her outstretched arm to allow us to do this....

or maybe we can remove that pink hat, have it land on her wings, then step on the middle of the hat to flatten it and write our name on it, though she might get upset about that.

Either way We might need to shorten our name to fit it all, like "WILLA III" (you took inspiration from Fivin for that nickname)

Whatever we do, give her a couple feathers as a gift for good measure, both a black and white feather.

> Cover one eye with a feather, to match your disfigured human form
You only vaguely remember your humanity in this dream-scape, you were never really good at LUCID DREAMING, but you feel the desire to COMMUNICATE with the being. Even if you fail to do so, at least it will have been one of your WEIRDER dreams. You shifts some feathers around your face to cover up one of your eyes and flap about. The WING-KIN says a few words but looks even more confused. Gesturing back behind them. They poke at you and you KAW and peck back.

> Morse Code
You don’t know Morse code! That’s some NERD SHIT if you ever heard of it.

> Pluck feathers
That didn’t work, okay, maybe another tactic? What if you plucked some feathers out? You try your best to grab one with your wings but it’s innefectual, so you try to PREEN and PLUCK out a feather. It’s hard to do at first, but your body naturally knows the motions as you sort of bleed into your new raven-like form. The first gets plucked out and it HURTS. You cry out in pain and the world starts to fade out and back in. It takes you a moment to be back in the dream. The Wing Kin is floating a bit of a distance away, but comes towards you. They look concerned and confused. You pluck out 3 more feathers, this time doing your best not to hurt yourself, but the pain reaches a point where you aren’t willing to pluck anymore.

At this point the Wing-Kin isn’t saying anything, but they’re looking around. You feel that you’re slightly moving in a direction. It feels like levitation or floating. You never noticed the WING-KIN using their legs, so you guess that’s how they move around this place, they’re probably taking you somewhere, but you don’t really care. You spell out a W, and then a 3 With the 4 feathers. It’s your last attempt at communication. You thought about using some ICE or SNOW but it’s too late for that now, you’re committed to this bit.

The movement stops and you see the WING-Kin stare at you with a larger amount of intensity. It’s at this moment you feel something strange. Like a clawing at the back of your mind. That clawing sensation turns to bubbling. You barely notice the WING-KIN take a step back from you, you’re just floating there now. There’s shouting, you think it’s in ACTUAL ENGLISH, but you’re too disoriented to fully make it out.

You’re losing sensation in your body for some reason. Your head is moving uncontrollably, you see a see a sparrow flying directly at you and reach out to it. You’re starting to return to the same inky blackness that constantly fills your dreams-capes, but a sensation sticks with you. A sensation of LONGING, the desire to INVITE others to join the same state. You can’t tell what’s going on anymore in the dream-scape, or if that’s where you even are.

And like a flash, you’re awake. You look around and its evening. You can only really vaguely recall your dream. Something about a WING-KIN you think? But like most dreams the details start to drift further and further away the more awake you become until you only remember that you had a dream, which in itself is strange given how often you DON’T have one. You check your COMM, It’s 9:30 On the dot. Well if there’s one good thing about your sleep cycles its that you seem to always awake at JUST THE RIGHT MOMENT without a timer. There’s also a TEXT from CAT. Looks like hes taking a shower with Andrea inside. Well if he’s already here, there’s no need to rush it, getting to Bobby’s house is only a 15 minute walk anyway. You pop inside and hear them just about to finish the shower. You decide it’s time to pull a little PRANK. You pop into the nearby cupboard and hide.

What kind of prank do you pull on these two goofs?

Absolutely no slipping in the shower. People can die that way. Really, people can die from slipping just about anywhere, and even if they're "only" injured, that's a terrible sort of prank.

Turning the shower-water cold would be a mean-spirited sort of prank, but better than slipping.

Freeze the towels. HA! Now the towels will be too frozen to use! good luck drying off, losers!

Also cool down Cat's poker clothes you set out for him. He thought he'd get warm from putting on clothes? NOPE!

But then you'll hug him to warm him up. You're not THAT cruel.

Who knows, we might just get an achievement for making someone shiver.

Also, ask Andrea if she wants her powers upgraded as an apology. Gotta strengthen Cat's awakened power after all.

> FREEZE towels
> MAke things a little CHILLIER

You lean out of the cupboard and look towards the TOWEL RACK, they're chatting and the water's stopping soon. You'll have to act fast, so you stick out your hand and expend some ENERGY to FREEZE the towels. They only have a bit of ambient moisture from the hot STEAM, so it will only be so effective, but it's enough you think. You also spend some more ENERGY to whisk away the hot air as they leave, it's COLD. You can hear a few SHRIEKS from ANDREA and a few giggles, followed by a SHRIEK from CAT. You're barely able to contain yourself as they walk out the room, you hear them smooching and Andrea mumbling about how you should give her a hug for warmth because of this DAMNED COLD TOWEL and DAMNED COLD HOUSE.

You fall out of the cupboard laughing and see Andrea giving Cat a PEACE SIGN. The two of them narrow their eyes at you, look at eachother knowingly and pick you up, tossing you on your bed. In a moment they're tickling you, which is a brand new sensation because now you can actually feel it and holy shit it's a mix of PAIN and LAUGHTER and you're crying and laughing and cry UNCLE a few times until they relent.

ANDREA gives you a wink as she heads out and CAT'S laughing his ass off like you were earlier. The sock is on the other paw as it were. You take a quick shower, don your POKER NIGHT outfit, and lead CAT out to BOBBY'S place.

Do you chat about anything before POKER NIGHT starts?

Cat talks about his date, told andrea everything about what we're planning, how he met a weird deer with 6 eyes that andrea couldn't see which put him to sleep giving him the most weirdest yet most peaceful dream he ever had, something about red eyes and visions while in space too. Also, walked home naked for some reason.

Willamina talks about kazu mentioning cat's bus incident, told everything to gena (shes on board) Nicky finding some people to protect the town which we might meet during the paperwork signing, and our dream... something about birds? No idea.

Cat should suggest driving the winnebago to Bobby's, but Will thinks it'll be more fun to sneak home naked if they lose.

You head back inside, grabbing your POLAROID CAMERA, then you pop by the LYST-Y-MART and get just a bunch of SLUSHEES, 5 each, you're going to need them for later.

> THE DATE
You: SooooOOOoo
Cat: Sooooooo?
You: Howd it GOOOOOO?
Cat: Oh! That.
Cat: Good, I think. She's on board with everything, was'nt that scared about it all
Cat: Didn't freak out over my power which is weird
Cat: Wants to keep us all safe and-
You: Cat YOU absolute DOLT I mean the date
Cat: Oh that, yeah, it was fine. Great even.
Cat: We spent most of it like... Doing DATE things.
Cat: Walk in the forest, find a chill spot, played a dumb little board game
You: That FORGIVE ME game?
Cat: Yeah that one!
Cat: She made some really good food, I think it was a veggie pot pie
Cat: And like a bunch of these great sammies.
You: They're called SANDWICHES Cat, c'mon not you too!
Cat: I always called em SAMMIES tho.
You: Fucking city kin.
You: So HOW'D fucking hold up? You keep up?
Cat: I could for a while, past what I thought I could actually.
Cat: And hours later when we finished and I thought she was done.
Cat: I was limp and tired but she was still raring, a few STAMI-LIQUORS (and hours) in.
Cat: But she stopped cause I think she got I was done.
You: Eh, better then MOST kin can even get.
You: I bet she was actually SATISFIED for once.
Cat: I hope so. it was good.

> THE DEER
Cat: Oh and I met the deer! Errr Doe? But like it's weird it had 6 eyes and she couldn't see it.
You: No, it has 2 eyes. What? You think it has extra eyes or some shit?
You: Or was it amulet shenanegans?
Cat: I took it off and there were 6 eyes still!
Cat: and like I took a NAP on it and felt the best I ever had, like all my stress, GONE!
Cat: Bruises, gone!
Cat: Also had a weird as fuck dream and I don't dream that often.

> DREAMS
You: Actually I had a dream too. Something about a BIRD?
You: I can't really remember.
Cat: I remember like... Eyes?
Cat: And a voice, something about passing? change?
You: Dreams are weird.
Cat: Yup.

> WALKING HOME
Cat: So why are we walking there, why not take the WINNEBAGO
You: So we can have the glorious WALK OF SHAME, DUH!
Cat: But I already did that today!!!
You: PFFFFF HAHAHAHAAH

You burst into a raucus laughter, you don't know why it's funny to you, but it is. It takes a moment for you to regain composure and a tear comes out of your eye.

You: Phew, haha, yeah well. We'll see what happens. We're splitting total clothes tonight so that'll be a thing.
Cat: What, I don't get a seat at the table?
You: It's shared. I got this slot because BOBBY knows I'm the fucking best.
You: I'm just letting you in because It'll be fun, I hope Landi's there.
You: You'll get a KICK outta her!
You: Speaking of, hold my ring.
Cat: Why can't you just wear it?
You: Continuity.
Cat: What?
You: Nevermind.


> YOUR TURN
Cat: So how was your day?
You: Oh, you know, jerking off in the LIBARBY, hopefully there's a new GUARD coming to town.
Cat: So is EXHIBITIONISM a big thing in this town or?
You: I mean to SOME kin I guess.
You: Gena's DOWN but panicked but she'll be fine after she analyzes everything.
You: Took a GOOD nap
You: Oh, and KAZU talked about that time on the BUS where you met his SIS
You: And this WING-KIN tha-
Cat: Let's not talk about her.
You: well I heard it was this chick named GID-
Cat: So NIPHA'S a super cool girl huh
Cat: Saving a bunch of kin. Really admirable.


You guess he really doesen't want to talk about that girl. Weird since he drew them in his notebook. You wanted to ask more about NIPHA anyway, seems like a good segway.

You: Uh, Huh. Yeah. She's coming to town soon isnt she?
Cat: TOMORROW! It's exciting! She's one of the few kin outside of LYST
Cat: That I actually trust. Well she went a long ways to making that happen.
Cat: But she's great, so you know that LAW that passed for WING-KIN like decades ago?
You: The one where they don't have to wear clothing?
You: I think it had something to do with it getting in the way of their feathers
You: and being real uncomfortable if it wasnt just a vest or a skirt or something
Cat: Yeah that one! So Nipha's like a long hair CAT right.
Cat: She found a LOOPHOLE in the system that lets her get away with not wearing PANTS
Cat: Went real deep into court, you can't see anything down there and she fought 3 LAWYERS
Cat: Eventually using that law and getting it applied to BEAST-KIN with certain fur amounts
Cat: She's got a PERMIT and everything it's so funny to see her fuck with the cops
You: Wait, so she NEVER wears pants!?!?!
You: NEVER??? I'm so fucking jealous these GODDESS DAMNED PURITANS
You: Saying we should "PROTECT THE CHILDREN" And can't go PANTSLESS
You: I remember reading STORIES about when this town was a fully nudist colony!!!
You: You know that 40 years ago Midland passed a law that EVERYONE had to don CLOTHES,
You: you had to designate ZONES, but they couldnt enforce it past 8PM
You: FUCKING. STUPID.
Cat: Didn't know you cared that much?
You: Okay, imagine literally every day it's always fucking hot and my phone overheats right?
You: You'd wanna declothe after that too!
You: Wait that was that fucking BITCH'S FAULT!!!!!
You: GAAAHHHHHHHHH
Cat: Anyway, she's kind of a KINMANITARIAN, helps out when she can
Cat: But also like gets OBSESSIONS and PROJECTS
Cat: And ABANDONS other things to pursue it
Cat: Pretty sure I can get THIS WHOLE THING
Cat: To become her next big project and she's fucking BRILLIANT
Cat: When she puts her mind to shit.
You: She good in a scrap? Or like... Potentially good?
Cat: I learned some of the basics from her, but uhhhh
Cat: I think she started to learn the SWORD a few years back
Cat: Never an actual ADVENTURER, but always wanted to be
You: I can RESPECT that. Might mean she's on better FOOTING then us?
Cat: Oh and I guess RUDY is good too. He's a TINKER but he never talked about his creations.
Cat: I think he was trying to make a ROBOT or AI or something at one point, I wonder how that went.
You: So you're DOING YOUR THING to her?
Cat: Yeah, I owe it to her.
Cat: I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for her.
You: ...
You: You KNOW I want to hear more right?
Cat: Maybe another day, I'm in too good a mood to ruin it.
You: Damn TEASE.
Cat: I mean I did just spend a WHOLE DAY with ANDREA.


You grumble under your breath, not really upset at cat who winks at you. You eventually reach BOBBY'S place. It's a quaint little HOUSE at the edge of town. Apparently it's got a BEDROOM with a KITCHEN UNIT and a STUDIO. He greets you outside and WILLAMINA hands him just a TON of SLUSHEES. You head inside but overhear a conversation between BOBBY and CAT.

Bobby: Hey. You seem like a guy with... CONNECTIONS. Am I right?
Cat: Uhhhhh, I dunno.
Bobby: I need IMPORTED SLUSHEE SYRUP
Cat: Wasn't there that news article about that?
Bobby: I dunno, BUT! IT's really good.
Bobby: Do me a solid, I uhhh. Can't get it for reasons.
Cat: Uh Huh.
Bobby: I heard you wanted ARTIFACTS right. I got one I don't use.
Bobby: just get me that and It's yours.


You don't *REALLY* care about that artifact, it's just a dumb mirror you could never get to work, and he couldn't either. You wait inside and take a glug of some water. Another minute passes before CAT waltzes in, excited after placing an ORDER ONLINE. He says that he's going to get an ARTIFACT tomorrow but you roll your eyes.

The two of you walk into the room, it's dimly lit and a few other participants are there. CAT'S HIGH has fully worn off and you can tell his confidence is dropping with every step he takes. You pat him on your back and pull your your POLAROID CAMERA, snapping a pic just out of range of the group. And then... The game begins.

The two of you head out into the street, fully nude. You managed to only TIE ONCE that whole game, and barely got any clothes. You store the following items in WILLAMINA'S RING:

MARY KIL'S LACEY PANTIES
SERAH'S REAL GOLD PINK BELT
ALMA'S BLACK AND BLUE JUMPSUIT UNIFORM

The last is in Cat's Hand. He holds an iridescent ring that's shimmering and studded with a variety of RED GEMS.

You: So that's a COCK RING right?
Cat: Yeah. But I'm pretty tuckered out right now. It's been a long day.
You: Was gonna say LET'S go to the HAUNCH
You: But I could probably get your exhaustion after ANDREA.
You: What does your AMULET say?


THE ASSLANTEAN ORICHALCUM RING OF VIRILITY - A Magically crafted phallus ring created for the people of ASSLANTIS. Increases HEALTH, STAMINA, and FERTILITY. Protects the wearer from EXHAUSTION and DISEASE. It has an extremely PLEASENT AND STIMULATING TEXTURE from the detailing on its surfaces. It RESIZES to fit the wearer when applied phallically.
(DEA - While it prevents PHYSICAL EXHAUSTION, it does not prevent MENTAL EXHAUSTION. It's FIRTILITY improvements are MAGICAL in nature, but CONTRACEPTIVES are as effective as they NORMALLY ARE, (yes I had to look this up, you're welcome))

You: So you're going to become the new ENERGIZER BUNNY huh?
Cat: Huh. I guess that means I'll be able to KEEP UP???
Cat: Imagine Andrea's surprise if I could keep up with her for a whole day??
You: YOU might wanna BE CAREFUL, I imagine she might abduct you for a week if she found that out.
You: Sex all day every day until she got literal years of backlogged sex out of the way.


You see CAT visibly sweat, there's a tinge of excitement but also a very palpable FEAR there. Goddess, fucking with him is so easy. You don't DOUBT that ANDREA would do something like that, but it'd be purely consensual, she likes the degrading thing, but isn't really into noncon. At least you don't think. There's a bit of a back and forth with you and Cat as he tries to get you to store it but you think he should wear it. He eventually relents and slides it on remarking that it "Feels rather comfortable actually" it resizes and fits his dick rather easily.

You think you could convince him to head to the HAUNCH still, but it might take a good argument. But it is NEARLY MIDNIGHT, and CAT does have his meeting with NIPHA tomorrow, it might be a better idea to head to bed.

No. 1010757 ID: e51896

Can't forget we also got 50 ACHIEVEMENT POINTS for awakening someone outside our dimension. Nice!

Anyway, tough choice. it's probably a better idea to head home and rest up since we got much to do tomorrow: plan things with our group, meet with a bunch of newcomers (Rudy, Nipha, guard(s), maybe Zarah though nothing said she'll show up or not tomorrow), meet with Nicky on the papermill contract and awaken her, get that mirror artifact from Bobby, and of course Willamina's awakening party

On the other hand, we'd miss out on meeting kin we haven't met before if we don't go to the Ruffled Haunch, like the priest girl Nails mentioned, Pazuru, Hyun, and Laverne...

After thinking hard about it, it's probably best to just head home, put cat's clothes in the wash, ask how Mint's and Rex's day off went, and go to bed... Maybe invite Mint to sleep over with us too, I think she could use the company

Maybe we can go to the Ruffled Haunch after Willamina's awakening party tomorrow instead? it might not be as busy there since they called for a stormy night tomorrow and we can just drive the Winnebago there to protecc us from rain.

speaking of which, it's getting a bit windy. They called for a cloudy windy day, and then a stormy night tomorrow so it must be starting. Let's head home and catch up with Rex and Mint. Try not to be seen by too many kin, hide behind stuff if you have to.

Suggest Cat to go streaking with you and see how much energy he'll have after you both reach your destination

Alternatively, we could use the ring as an argument to go to the ruffled haunch since it'll prevent him from being tired and let us test out its power.

Seems like Iraphena or Isabella is going around telling people about Cat wanting artifacts. Rude. Not sure what is there to gain from letting others know.

Ask Cat if he wants your company tonight in bed, or if he wants some alone time, and if he wants to sleep in your home or in the Winnebago.

> Go to bed
You decide it's probably better to get some rest tonight. Tomorrow's going to be a big day, what with MINT, RUDY, the GUARDS, the PAPER MILL, it's going to be a BUSY ASS DAY. Oh, and lets not forget your PARTY. The HAUNCH will be there tomorrow if you really wanna go, plus you're fairly SATISFIED for today.

You: You should take a PIC to CELEBRATE!
You: Pictures are a great way to REMEMBER OCCASIONS!
Cat: You don't care that we're naked?
You: Pshhh why should that matter?


Cat takes a pic, remarking how everyone in this town seems to enjoy that hobby and he's getting a SLOWLY GROWING NUDES COLLECTION. He snaps a pic, and you snap one back! He’s totally nervous and blushing and gives you a PEACE sign. You notice that it's starting to get just a bit WINDY and CLOUDY right now which turns your kind of neutral walk home without clothes into a BRISK one. The cold tickles your nipples giving you GOOSEBUMPS and causing them to become erect. The same happens to CAT. you both shiver slightly and you toss an idea out there.

You: RACE ya home? It's like we're STREAKING through the night?!?!
Cat: But if it's legal is it really STREAKING?
Cat: You won't really SHOCK anyone that way.
You: AWWW where's your sense of FUN and ADVENTURE, Don't get so caught up on SPECIFICS!

And so the two of you dash home, there's a few other KIN waltzing around without clothes. It's SUNDAY NIGHT and you see MAPLE walking around in the buff and holy shit her cock is huge and it's not even erect. You notice CAT staring at her and she gives him a wink, that causes him to get a bit of an erection and she does like a gesture which is two fingers and her tongue licking between them. Everyone chuckles as you eventually reach your place. The two of you pop inside, Cat tosses some CLOTHES into your LAUNDRY MACHINE, and the two of you sit down.

You ask CAT how he's holding up. You're a little TUCKERED OUT from the run. He seems perfectly fine, GREAT even. Didn't even break a sweat. Mint walks in too with REX on her shoulder. You toss ALMAS UNIFORM at Mint and she takes it, commenting that it's of rather GOOD QUALITY, but has a few UNRECOGNIZABLE INSIGNIAS on them. She doesen't comment on how you are both naked, but instead lets you know that her day was BORING, VERY BORING, she went out for a walk in town, met a few RANDOM KIN, no one special. She says that MAPLE is kind of nice, treated her to DINNER.

TONI snuck up on her at the DINER so she GUT PUNCHED HIM and he just gave her a THUMBS UP when she asked if he was okay. You get a BIG LAUGH at out of that one. He's a little shit sometimes so it's good for him to get his comeuppance. Roach said he's just been watching the NEWS and random SHOWS, there's a lot of CRIME DRAMAS he's been getting into.

It's the end of the day and everyone's tuckered out, what do you do for sleeping arrangements?

A. Sleep in seperate beds
B. You and Cat together
C. Cat and Mint together
D. You and Mint together
E. All of you in one big snuggle pile


You get the feeling you could convince CAT to get over some of his hangups with MINT today, he's in a good mood today after all, but you have no idea if there will be UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES in the morning.

I just remembered that there was also some kind of mysterious flyer at the community center that had a time, date, and address scheduled for Monday 1pm in the outskirts of town. https://questden.org/kusaba/questarch/res/986604.html#990097

If we're not too busy, we can check that out. But if we estimate we won't have time (I assume we won't have time), lets probably send Mint over at that address at 1pm to check that out for us while Rex checks the forest to chat with the animals for information with a roach friend as backup, maybe he'll find the forest girl...

or we can have Rex spy on that meeting with another roach at 1pm to be more stealthy while Mint prepares things with Rudy and Rupert for turning the papermill into a tinker workshop, and then read the Magic Dart Body Cultivation Manual for the rest of the day to teach Cat later (though that can probably probably be done between monday until the time "vacation" starts.

regardless, let's ask Mint and Rex on their opinion on this, and we'll ask Rex and Callan what they saw on tv tomorrow.
------------------------------

As for what to do with sleeping arrangements...

C, or D whichever Cat is more comfortable with as long as Mint gets snuggles. More towards C since Willamina mentioned she was pretty satisfied. Whichever we choose, Mint deserves some attention since she said she's been bored, and Cat needs to be comfortable with Mint if we want this team to stay strong (we'll whisper this to Cat to convince him). Plus we can't have Mint feeling bad like this when everyone else had a good day. Let Cat spend time with Mint, and if he feels uncomfortable, you'll take his place to show there's nothing to worry about.

Make sure he removes the cock ring so he doesn't spend all night awake though. Whatever we choose, tell Cat you won't judge with whatever we might do with Mint tonight in the Winnebago. Plus we got stamina liquor if we feel tuckered out tomorrow, and Cat has his cock ring. If sex happens, try to make it quick and/or not too rough so we all get proper sleep.

We can probably choose E, but it's probably best if one of us is able to wake up early enough to wake the other person.

No. 1011261 ID: ce39da

To add to my post, I just remembered that Mint has her cat form, we could have Rex spy on that meeting we found on the flyer while Mint in her cat form investigates the forest and talk to animals there for info, and find forest girl. That is assuming she can talk to wild animals in her cat form. maybe not, Rex was able to talk to the badger, but only through telepathy.

And getting cat to loosen up around Mint is probably a good idea if you're going to be working as a team in a highly stressful environment, so that's a yes to trying that.

Let's just ask Cat what they're fine with. We can try to help him get more comfortable about Mint, but if he's too against it then we let it go.

C.
Also tell Cat if he's really worried about the consent thing he needs to realize that she can refuse implied requests. Like if he just asks her if she wants to do a silly dance, she can say no, right? Same if he asks if she wants to fuck him. He can also order her to tell him if he's making her uncomfortable.
Also, the power dynamic is only really an issue if he requests sex. I mean, the issue is if she refuses sex, then there's an implied risk of reprisal due to the imbalance of power, right? If she's the one that always requests it, then there's nothing to worry about. Cat just needs to try not to expect it from her.

Oh, and has Cat used up his power for today? He should upgrade someone if he has energy left.

Being comfortable in the presence of another person makes you associate comfort with them and increases your bond.

> Cat and Mint together
You suggest Cat and Mint sleep in the same bed and Cat's a little hesitant. He eyes Mint over and you look at her as well. She has that look in her eye, that ruffle to her fur. Cat's NAKED right now and you can tell that MINT is a bit AROUSED, not from the nudity, but from CAT'S SMELL. She'll probably hump his leg all night or something. Which you think would probably be hilarious.

Cat feels hesitant about it but you decide to put your foot down on the issue.

You: So like Cat, what's the deal, do you hate MINT or something?
Cat: What? No.
You: So then like what's up with all this HESITATION about her?
Cat: Well the power dynamic is weird and it's like she's a slave and like
You: Okay but like... we've PROVEN you can just ASK her her opinion right?
Cat: Yeah but, it's all coerced under this weird power structure of magic bullshit
You: Okay but like... If she ASKS to do a thing that's HER asking not the MAGIC. It's not MIND CONTROL. It's not mind control right?
Mint: About as much mind control as a shock collar is
Mint: If this one do something against your rules,
Mint: Only if I do something incredibly igregous or try to actively or passively kill you
Mint: Will this one be harmed or eradicated.
You: SEE, so WHAT'S the problem?
You: You gave her AUTONOMY, so she can say NO, even if she has this weird masochism thing going
Mint: This lowly peon appreciates being allowed her fetishes.
You: The only ISSUE and that's if we make it a big deal, is if you request sex and force it if she REFUSES!
You: Just like... don't expect it? Like how PEOPLE shouldn't expect sex from others just cause they gave them a SLUSHEE or whatever.


Cat looks thoughtful at that, it looks like he didn't consider that and was more focused on the whole SLAVE thing over her autonomy. You imagine if this kept up for much longer it might lead to him treating her WORSE then if this was discussed.

You: So, we good?
Cat: Uh, yeah. Sorry Mint.

She just shrugs

You: Now go sleep together or something I don't care if you have sex
You: but I expect you to stop fretting over this frankly STUPID issue by tomorrow
You: And Like. If you DON'T WANT TO have sex with her, just SAY SO
You: Don't use the SLAVE THING as an excuse
Mint: Do you... Not want to have sex with me?
Cat: What? No I think you're hot, wait that's not the point!


You chuckle and get Mint to join in on it, you really do enjoy making Cat flustered, and it's so easy too. He's flushing at JUST that.

> Cat power use?
It's a new day so his power did reset, but you were going to have him save it for MOM tomorrow.

> Incubate the egg
When you head inside the WINNEBAGO there's actually a lot of boxes there now that she brought in. It looks like she just moved the supplies inside but actually did what you said and took some time off. Each of them are labeled. There's some called DRY RATIONS, INSTANT FOODS, STAMI-LIQUORS, and there's even that SLUSHEE MACHINE and some SLUSHEE MIX too. There's also lots of other stuff but eventually you find the INCUBATOR among some GLASS SUPPLIES you assume to be a part of REX'S ENCLOSURE. You head over to an empty CUBBY HOLE and plug in the INCUBATOR and pop the LUCKY EGG into it. It's got a nice cushion and is properly sized for the rather large egg. It wiggles a bit as you place it down in a way you assume means that it's pleased. You wonder how it would have felt if it was chucked in the freezer, or if you just ate it, but respect CAT'S wishes in incubating it. You walk past the BEDROOM and see CAT thoroughly passed out, mint wrapped tightly around his LEG with a satisfied grin on her face.

Feeling like your job is done, you head to bed, thoroughly passing out after the goings on of today.

[MONDAY, MAY 23, 2029]

A WOMAN dashes down the roads leading into LYST. Her feet streak across the asphalt as if she were skating. The glow coming off her NEW HOVERBOOTS is subtle, but increases in intensity as she attempts to move faster. She jumps on the guard rails simulating a grind with no friction and continues to slide down the road. Cars drive by but she easily jumps over or on them, her feet never really touching them, even as they HONK at the obvious distraction that she is on the road. A MANIC SMILE crosses her face as she does this. She's moving a bit slower then the vehicles, but her maneuverability means it's easy for her to grab onto one of the faster ones and boost herself forward.

Your name is NIPHA RONDALPHUS, but you don't really use your last name because some kin freak out when they find out you're ROYALTY to a long dead HISTORICAL FAMILY. You're TECHNICALLY a PRINCESS, but with no land, no political power, and nothing that really associates with it, it doesn't matter or effect you. You're fairly SWIFT as an individual and are good with THE SWORD, but you can't just carry that out in the open, so you have to use a shitty TELESCOPING one that you keep in your WEIGHT REDUCTION bag. But this town is relatively safe so you doubt it'll be an issue.

You think about how you left RUDY a note this morning, telling him you headed off early to LYST. You could have taken the bus and gotten here faster but you were just so hyped about these NEW HOVERBOOTS you had to give them a test ride. You’d apologize to the guy whose car’s MANA BATTERIES you janked on your way down here to refuel them, but it was LIMINAL, and you really can’t resist fucking him over. Always so SMUG, HOLIER THAN THEE, and incredibly brutal to criminals in the way almost all HL member act recently. They haven’t done much for the world as of late and your goodwill with the HL has already run dry. Either way, no one saw you, and your CAT LIKE SENSES didn’t tell you if SOMETHING ELSE was watching, so it’s no fur off your cheek.

You text CAT, your old pal, that you’re in town and to hit you up when he’s awake. It’s early enough that he’s probably still asleep. You’ve got some time to kill before RUDY gets here and you GET DOWN TO BUSINESS. You could visit YOUR BROTHER while you wait, or do something else. You could also take a walk through the park and THINK ABOUT THINGS. There’s no rush, or you would say that if a THUNDERSTORM wasn’t going to kick in in the late afternoon. You reach the edge of town and power down your HOVERBOOTS. Dust scatters as you do and some gets on your fur. You raise up your hand and wipe some of the dust off.

What do you do?

Call Kazu, tell him to get his ass over to the Hapless Stone, or Friendly Bean for pancakes right now! Tell him you'll pay, but only on the condition he keeps everything he says under 10 seconds. And yes, noogie him when he shows up.

go bother the other customers while you wait for Kazu and breakfast to be served. Maybe we'll hear some juicy rumors about the town.
