I do sometimes... I hide under the sink or behind the toilet... there's no where to hide in the shower though, too much light, to private... but when shes in, I can spread as wide as I want behind the curtains... and I listen to her sing~

I wish I could, but I'm too pale to move anything, its much to lit in this room... besides it would probably scare her... I would probably scare her...

I couldn't possibly get that close and... touch... no no no... I'm not brave enough... besides I'm too pale... but... maybe... I'll try... but I cant been seen... I'm too shy

I'm much, much to shy... when ever she looks towards me I hide. I hide so fast, it's as if I'm not even there... besides, she would probably be afraid of me if ever she did see me...

oh she's very healthy, a full body is a sign of good health~ unlike that Jane... Geh... Jane... she never eats... and she regurgitates all the time... she is most unhealthy... not full bodied at all... unlike Gwen~

possession? I'm not sure I can do that, I've never tried before... though I'd hate to posses a body so unhealthy and vile as Jane's... I fear I may die of weakness... Assuming I could, to begin with...

I prefer to hide behind inanimate objects, it makes squeezing easier. but thank you'll, I'll keep it in mind...

I am pale because this room is too bright, light bounces from all sides and fills even the darkest of corners with some lumen.

I shall gladly accept your aid creature, and if you say that pushing the Trix box into her bacon will make her happy then I shall do it~ but I would need your aid... if you can both distract Gwen and plunge the room into darkness then I shall mix for her the Trixy bacon~

wha-wha-what I we I'm not I with Ahem... eum...

Currently, my precious Gwen has just finished cleaning our mess and took a shower. And as we speak she is admiring her flawless, healthy body in the looking glass to prepare for her religious duty. She is of course a priestess, did you know? all humans worship the rectangle which is their god.

Humans spend most of their day in admiration of the large rectangle and all carry with them, at all times, the small rectangle. Humans love their god so much, that if they don't know the where abouts of the small rectangle, for even a second, they spiral into a blind panic...

Gwen, my precious perfect Gwen, is a cut above of course, she is a priestess and for many hours every day she will commune with the medium sized rectangle and speak to it, she praises it and thanks it constantly. I cannot see into the rectangle's light but it must be glorious. From what I gather, my marvelous Gwen is a war priestess. She is always talking to the rectangle about strategy and conflict. I believe that she is single handedly safe guarding humanity from its enemies~
No. 968995 ID: e957c9

Nah man, i'm pretty sure she is just playing Wow or something. She must be a palading, or a cleric. She stays hours playig that stupid game. Never pays atention to me when she is on that machine!

Oh, you poor summer shadow child, that's not a god, we all know there is only one god and he's orange, loves lasagna and lives in the void between universes.

Also, you should try to be assertive and grab a small handful. A SMALL handful, be subtle.
No. 968998 ID: 6e6f32

>praises it and thanks it constantly
>talking to the rectangle about strategy and conflict

Ah. I know of this practice.
She is a type of priestess known as a Streamer.
You can tell by the strange ovoid she speaks into. Powerful human magicians from the far east entrap the spirits of snow demons called "Yeti" into them, so they might broadcast the Streamers voice to hundreds, nay THOUSANDS of other humans at once. 'Tis why they refer to the ovoid as simply a "Yeti".

The small box a top the glowing rectangle traps a tiny piece of the soul of those who it beholds, and "Streams" it to where it is most needed. It facilitates the ritual. To be under it's effects for hours at a time must be exhausting. Gwen works so hard.

Also, you are right about the war priestess part. I can tell right away, she belongs to the "Hammer of War", though I would not be surprised if she gave her aid elsewhere on a whim. Streamers are very powerful.

Hmm. Gwen does not seem to be enjoying her own visage.
Could it be that she does not feel the same way about herself as you do?

Perhaps you could reassure her of her perfection?
Perhaps indirectly...
No. 969000 ID: 5877dc

Does she wear any clothes when she... admires the medium rectangle?

We should take a closer look at this rectangle, to see what's on it. It's likely that the shadow can't see into it due to the light it emits. It would be like looking at the sun for them.
No. 969004 ID: 9876c4

...what's the view like from the underside?
No. 969005 ID: b1b4f3

No. 969011 ID: ff6df5

...Um. My shadowy friend... Wait, we forgot to ask your name! That was rude of us, not exchanging introductions. What's your name, if you don't mind sharing?

Okay, that sorted... Sorry to burst your bubble, my shadowy friend, but those rectangles ain't mediums for humanity's god. They're, among other things, devices humans use to communicate with each other, share and retrieve information and knowledge, and entertain themselves and each other over distances large and small. The glowing rectangles just display visual information and are called screens. The device on top of the middle screen, that's a camera to record visual information. The device in front of the left screen is a microphone, which detects audio information. The headband thing on the hook are headphones and emit audio information. And the thingie with all the buttons with characters painted on 'em in the middle of the table is a keyboard, used to input text. There's a whole lot more about these devices, but I can solidly say they aren't divine and are the works of humanity.

In fact, I think we may be able to show you what these two medium screens display, once Gwen isn't about. We can jump up there and paw the screen's controls to turn their brightness setting all the way down. Then maybe you'd be able to see what is on them, especially if it's dark out and the lights are off.

Another way that you might be able to see what is on the screens is if you swipe and wear a pair of sun glasses. They're glasses with tinted lenses, meant to protect human's eyes from bright sunlight. They may be able to block enough of the screen's light without blocking what they're displaying for you to see what they show. Might need to combine them with turning the screen brightness down too.

If we could get a device with a screen with a busted backlight, that'd be perfect for our shadowy friend. Maybe Gwen or Jane have a phone or laptop that'd broken in only that way stashed in the apartment somewhere.

And I gotta say, my shadowy friend, you seem to be... well... quite ignorant of the world. Like, how old are you? How far back do your memories go? Where have you been? Have you been stuck in this apartment your whole life? How'd you learn to understand English, the language what Gwen and Jane speak? (I assume.)

Hey, don't you lay out a line of bullshit that plays to this shadow spirit's ignorance! It'll just make things harder for them later, thinkin' things are what they aren't.

oh is that your god? it sounds frighting.

oh yes she does fine warm garments, hooded robes and glowing ornaments of every color~

my name? my name is penumbra, I think... I haven't spoken to people in a long time...

>the shadow seems irresponsible to your presentation of logic and truth. as you explain what a screen is and how it operates he gets quickly distracted and doesn't retain much information... How ever the fantastical version of the facts, involving yeti and spirits and glowing rectangles captures its attention immediately...

Penumbra - oh you are so wise creature, you know so much about the world~ and you... you are right I am a tad ignorant... I think I always was... I cant say how old I am... I don't feel old... but things weren't the same back when I first... started thinking?

As far back as I can recall, I simply was. along with my two friends, Silhouette and gloom. we lived in this house, though it didn't look like this... there were trees all around and the house was not as clean... and there was so much darkness back then...

how could I possibly help her feel better about herself?
No. 969090 ID: b1b4f3

Can you write? Maybe you can write a letter full of kind words, and leave it at her door as if someone pushed it under.
No. 969091 ID: 77e804

>how could I possibly help her feel better about herself?

Well, first you need to overcome your shyness, or you will never be able to help her. She is very much like you; a very shy girl. The only friends she has are probably the ones she plays with on her pc. I mean, she never has people come here, so yeah.

That must have to do with how she perceives her body. She is on the overweight sight of the spectrum, but no badly so. Times have changed and the humans no longer see fat tummies as healthy, on the contrary. It is considered too much. You need to be in the middle. The same would happen with Jane. You say she is too slim. She probably is TOO slim, and that is not good either.

So, you need to make her feel good about herself. She knows she is too fat, but doesn't do anything about it, because she lacks selfestim. If she gains a friend, she will be happy and feel better about herself, and so she will gain confidence to do something about her self image.

Maybe? I don't really know how that works, but I would really like her to take better care of herself. Go out some more, have more friends, be more happy.

But first things first. You need to work on YOU. Maybe you could talk to her when she is sleeping, make it look like a lucid dream?
No. 969092 ID: 5877dc

To do that, she would need some sort of external validation. Something tells me that sending her a letter telling her she's beautiful wouldn't work tho.

Would it be possible for you to enter one of her mirrors and change the reflection she sees of herself? Like make the reflection look slimmer? Or maybe make the reflection do things, like tell her that she's sexy?
No. 969093 ID: d186fc

Your view of beauty is a tad outdated. As humans began communicating with each other much more rapidly, their culture changed at a dizzying pace, and with it, what they view as attractive. This is especially true when the rectangles came to be (it is NOT a good idea to tamper with the rectangles, they are also one of our conduits. Do not touch). While there is nothing wrong with either view (not that we really view humans in terms of attractiveness, what with our not being human), many humans strive to achieve the current ideal (sometimes going to great, and potentially dangerous lengths, like it sounds Jane may have done), or at the very least, view themselves negatively if they do not match it. In other words, Gwen thinks she is not attractive, at least to some degree.
No. 969094 ID: d186fc

I would agree that you need to work on you. Specifically your capabilities and your discipline. Leave Gwen be for now. It would be better to do nothing at all than to inadvertently do harm.
No. 969100 ID: 6e6f32

>how could I possibly help her feel better about herself?

I can think of two ways..
We could Torment Jane until she leaves, and then when Gwen moves to replace her, we can sabotage the candidates until another human like Gwen appears.
Cohabitation with another similarly healthy human will make Gwen less critical of herself, thus improving her happiness.

Alternatively we could Balance Gwen, and make her Even More Perfect. Humans are all about "good" shape, but good shape only comes with balance.
Healthy though Gwen may be, she has far too much fortitude and not enough strength. We would need to coax Gwen into performing more Physical Activity when she is not streaming. Jane would be useful for this.
As such we could not do both.

Both have their risks though.
Tormenting Jane could lead to Gwen not having a cohabitant for a long time. This might force Gwen to leave the house if we are not careful.

Balancing Gwen however will be hard for everyone involved, especially Gwen. Our actions will appear cruel and it will take A long time. It will hurt.

We must do something though. If this keeps up I fear Gwen might attempt to starve herself.
No. 969150 ID: d186fc

So do you mean like strength training to gain muscle? I can get behind that. If you mean lose weight, then our friend is definitely not going to get on board with that.
No. 969205 ID: cc85a3

The intention was gain muscle, yes. Even if it ends up being undefined, non specific gains. If Gwen doesn't change her eating habits I doubt she'll gain or lose much weight, but we could redistribute some of that PAUNCH weight as muscle.

Of course it could backfire and cause Gwen to snack harder to compensate, resulting in net gain and no fat loss, but then at least we will have a platform to argue diet for with pnumbra.

I don't like Jane, but I'm not going to go as far as to torment her, just so I can have Gwen all to myself... besides, she's Gwens friend. they play the dice adventure game sometimes.

I don't understand how I could help Gwen be healthier... and I absolutely do not want to hurt her. but if she is not happy with herself, then I have to help her be happier...

>Gwen gets dressed and sits down at her computer, penumbra timidly leaves the room.

I shouldn't be there during the ritual, once the rectangle alerted Gwen to my presence and she nearly saw me...

I do not think that I am able to enter mirrors, though I am visible in them. and I don't think I'm able to create illusions like that. though I wish I could, it would be amusing I think~

you are right, creature. I need to become more confident if I ever want Gwen to see me. I need to bolster myself... but I don't know how... just thinking about it makes me tremble...

I do whisper to her in her sleep already, I like to see how close I can get and sometimes smell her hair... she is so fragrant~

hmmnnn... maybe writing a letter to her will help me grow confident, by contacting her indirectly?

>He pulls out a sheet of paper from the living room printer and set to work on the hallway floor.

but what to write? I haven't spoken to a human in ever... I don't know how to put my hearts emotions to paper... what should I write? what will she understand as genuine?
No. 969235 ID: 5877dc

This is a tough choice lol

If you told her that she looks healthy out of nowhere, then she would think that you're a stalker, unless you'd be able to give a really good explanation for how you know what she looks like.
Is she into paranormal stuff? If she is, then none of this would be a problem at all. If she's not, then maybe you could get her interested in it first, if you somehow got her books or movies on the subject matter.
But if you just write her a letter, then the safest option would be to pretend you're a human. You would have to pretend to be someone that's seen her before, so the question is, where have you seen her, and how did you obtain her address to be able to send her a letter.
For instance, you could say that you saw her in a restaurant, or a train station, or some other outside place that she visited recently. Assuming you know of such places. And you could tell her that you got her address from... her wallet? Or her ID card? You could take one of her belongings to make it seem like she lost it, and deliver this item together with this letter. I think that would be a good way to make it look genuine. And you could write that you saw her but that you were unable to return the item in person because she was in a hurry, and that you were also busy, so you decided to pick up the item and mail it to her when you had a chance.
And then you can write what you thought about her based on your first impressions, that she looked adorable and healthy etc.
No. 969249 ID: de31ee

Maybe you should write in the letter that you heard about her from Jane and she said you and her might make good friends and recommended that you write to her, that way, Gwen wont think some random stranger is writing to her and that it is someone who knows her friend Jane.

you're right I don't want to seem like a stranger or a stalker, if I'm too knowledgeable of her, it might seem like I'm spying on her... I suppose the truth is the best recourse, but I also don't want to scare her away... I dont even know how to start...

yes I suppose I am nervous... I've never done this kind of thing before... I've never made a move towards revealing myself...

>you rub against Penumbra, curiously the parts of it that are attached to the wall and floor are flat like a shadow, but the parts detached are solid... sort of, its like a fog with the thickness of molasses... not entirely solid but clearly there...

Sit perfectly upon paper so as not a single fur touches floor. Let out a single meow to acknowledge Jane's presence.

If Jane approaches flip onto back and reveal belly whilst emitting a playful purred chirp. Remaining on the paper the entire time, of course.

We're not out of the woods yet. She can still find us. We're going to need a decoy of some sort to lower her curiosity, something that looks like the paper we had so she thinks that is what we ran away with and she can stop looking for the paper. lets hide the paper far back in inside the compartment that is hard for the humans to reach, and tear off a label of one of the cans or bags with our claws and trick her into thinking the label is the paper we ran with once we exit the compartment. Head towards the lightswitch with the label afterwards so we can be prepared to turn off the lights if she isn't fooled and decides to look through the shelves afterwards. Maybe that way Penumbra can retrieve the paper while she is distracted, (we'll need to alert him where if we need to)

Just in case we really do have to intervene here, reach unto the void and test our connections with the ancient one as we did three lives ago. Ofc we don't want things to come to that, but you never know. Desperate times call for desperate measures and there are times where taboos must be broken.

Mutating our form to be capable of speech could help us be a mediator once we are past the initial shock. Of course, we would only talk to penumbra and Gwen (and maybe Jane) when they are alone so we do not attract unwanted attention. Anyone would think they were mad if they tried to prove we talked.

You dare doubt our power? but seriously though, we already established some sort of connection to some kind of elder god, so it could happen. In fact, I could totally see this quest still being perfectly viable if we ended up going that route. Or we could just be a cat. Ultimately it is up to the author. I for one hope we can go all eldritch being.
