I feel truly alive when I fall. My heart pounds, my limbs coil and prepare for the landing, every bit of my body and mind crave this sensation. Evolution has shaped me for this purpose, and fulfilling it is ecstasy.

Long term goal is to get to the city. Short term is open until something comes up.

Probably. Not worried. After all, I have not died yet.

I fear no fall.

The door closes behind me. I continue forward until I come to a small rise. Below that is a bridge that spans far into the distance. The bridge crosses a lake that takes up the entire cavern. To the left of the bridge are two tall structures, with lighted windows. I can see additional lights in the distance.

Heh heh.. oh god, I can't stop grinning at the implications of this question.
For now let's just say that the gender of a friend doesn't matter. What's important is that they let you touch their genitals.
When you imagine yourself with a companion, what would the two of you be doing?

You should explore the tall structures first. Try to move stealthily until you can determine if they're abandoned or not.

>Which is the best gender for a friend?
Subjective. Conditional upon a large number of parameters and variables you have yet to share with us.

For now, there's a much higher return in investment acquiring a friend at all rather than attempting to acquire a friend of the optimal gender.

>Where should I go?
Lights usually indicate habitation.

Elevation usually indicates a desire for privacy or security.

Therefore we should approach lights closer to ground level, which indicate inhabited areas most likely to be welcoming to visitation.
No. 808912 ID: 891b91

Do you know what kinds of beings live in the city? Are they the same species as you, or something else? Do you expect they will react well to meeting you?

Sorry for all the questions, but I think these things are worth serious consideration. If it's likely that the inhabitants of the city will be afraid of you or hostile towards you, then you should approach the city with caution, and maybe try to remain unseen until you can find a good situation in which to reveal yourself.

On the other hand, if you think that the inhabitants would be friendly and welcoming towards you, then you might as well head straight for one of the lit-up buildings.

Genitals? Theirs and not mine? I have not imagined what I would do with a friend. I assume things that friends do. I will remember that gender does not matter, even if it is not optimal.

I do not know. You sound like voices. But in my head. It is strange. Maybe this is because I learned how to think the way that people with language do? It is confusing.

If I understand correctly, the ruins are inside the wall, so passing through the ruins is simply a way to get through the wall. So no. The city is still far away.

The vision in my right eye is poor and it is hard to tell how far some things are.

However, I am clever. I walk to a spot on the bridge and I watch how much the tower moves as I walk. Now I know the tower is not too far away.

Voices, I am hungry. I must eat soon. Falling, jumping, climbing all use up food for me. If I am too hungry I cannot do those things. Climbing to the top of this tower will use up the rest of my food in me.

>What do I do if I see people inside the tower?
You would need their assistance, but they will most likely not be willing to provide it. That said, if you see them, you will need to act quickly, depending on what you see.
If the people in there seem armed, you will need to subdue them first. In this case you will need to judge whether you have enough strength and preemptive advantage to be able to do so. If you feel you can't, then hide outside the window and we'll work from there.
If they're unarmed and seem weak, then you should enter and demand their assistance.

How do you feel about eating people?
Also, does using up food manifest itself as pleasure to you?
No. 809200 ID: be61f7

You can't find any friends if you don't meet people! Then again, not all potential friends are nice. Maybe take a peek inside for pre-friendship evaluation.

If they don't look like good friendship material, maybe they have some food they're not using? You seem like you might be sneaky!
No. 809201 ID: 3abd97

What do you consume to sate your hunger? Animal mater? Plant mater? Other, please clarify?

Wait to gauge their response. Do not initiate sudden or aggressive actions if possible, as these might stimulate fear or aggression driven responses in the people.

Is the city not the space inside the city's wall?

>Is someone only a person if they are alive? Or are they still a person when they are dead?
Living persons would probably object to your eating other persons alive, or eating the dead remains of other persons.

It's not universal, but many peoples have strong aversions to being eaten. Eating people might negatively impact attempts at making friends.

>I do not understand.
More simply then. What brings you pleasure?
No. 809230 ID: 0d1514

Showing your tits to people in the tower is a valid response and a good way to make friends! Besides, it opened the door, it's probably a cultural norm around here.
No. 809231 ID: 3ce125

Well if there's people here you may as well kill them since you can't make friends with them (I'm guessing that means everyone in the ruins is hostile). Eat them afterwards, why not.
No. 809234 ID: 891b91

>You keep saying the same thing. It does not make sense. Are you broken?
I think they're just sexually attracted to you.

>Is someone only a person if they are alive? Or are they still a person when they are dead?
Most people are probably going to consider a person's corpse to still be a person. Eating people, alive or dead, will just make people hate you, so if you want to make friends you should try to eat other things. Eating the same sorts of food that you see other people in the city eat would be best.

>alive or dead?
That's.. too philosophical question. It all comes down to how you want to be treated yourself. Anyway, no eating people then.

>I cannot find a friend here.
You're right. You should not be looking for friends here. This should simply be a place where we find food.

>I do not understand.
Falling, jumping, climbing uses up food for you. Does falling, jumping, climbing make you feel pleasure? Or it it something else? Impacts, damage and consequential healing mechanisms?

Or, it was a mechanism to keep mindless creatures outside. Perhaps the sign should not have been taken so literally.

Some of the people giving the suggestions are definitely sexually attracted to you.

Rejoice at how your body is obviously very fit and healthy, and therefore attractive, to these people!

Despair at how tactless they are!

Alternately, it could be an attempt to see you with good or extra lighting, so they can see the curves of your body and extra textures of your body and nuance of color and pattern and so on.

If I were sexually attractive then I would have a lot of sex. I have not. I am not sexually attractive.

I can see inside the window. It is a... room. There is a door. I can see a lot of short walls and desks and boxes. The window does not open when I try to open it.

>Why not eat a dead thing?
Because of the opinions of living things.

For example, if you eat a dead person, and it makes a living person not want to be your friend, was it worth it?

>I get pleasure from doing things that I like to do. I like to do things that give me pleasure. I do not know how else to answer this.
Perhaps provide an example. Can you name a thing you have done before that you like doing?

>If I were sexually attractive then I would have a lot of sex. I have not. I am not sexually attractive.
But you can't have lots of sex if you are alone. And by your own admission, you have been alone. Perhaps your level of attractiveness was not the most significant factor in the amount of sex you had.

Looks uninteresting. Let's keep moving towards the city.

Aww, I was hoping we'd find something or someone. Maybe you should jump back to the bridge and head for the city?

Oh, wait, you said you were getting hungry and you need food to do things. Do you need to eat something before you can jump back to the bridge? Because if you do, then you kinda need to find something to eat here before you can start heading towards the city.
No. 809703 ID: 891b91

>Dead things are not people. You are silly.
If the people in the city are like the people I know, then they're going to disagree with you very strongly about that, which will make it difficult for you to make friends with them. I still recommend you follow the example of the people whom you want to befriend.

>I do not eat people, but if I find a dead thing that used to be a person I will still eat it.
I'm beginning to get the impression that you are part of a species of carrion eaters or other scavengers.

>I am not sexually attractive.
Apparently at least one person disagrees with you about that.

>what do
Try to find an opening or entrance. There might be one on the roof. Barring that, maybe you'd be able to break the window and get in that way. If you can get inside, you might be able to find something to eat.

Hello again. Please update me on what my daughter has been doing. I worry about her. Please help guide her back home, where she belongs. With her family. I am her father and she deserves to be home. Did she tell you that she was "alone"? Did she tell you that she wanted to go find "friends"? She is silly. I warned you that you cannot believe what she says - she is a liar. And a foolish child. ...oh? You do not remember me? She must have erased your memory somehow. You cannot trust her. You must not let her get to that city. It is far too dangerous for her there. People will know she is a monster, and they will kill her. You don't want her to die, do you? Her death will be on all of your hands. So, tell me - what has she been doing?
No. 810048 ID: 3ce125

She's probably dead already to be honest. Sorry!

Your daughter is alive and well. She has done many great deeds, saved lives and gained valuable experience. She has made many friends and we're.. I mean, they're having a lot of fun together. Nothing to worry about. We'll bring her to an orgas- I mean, organize, we'll organize to have her brought home as soon as possible.

If I may ask, why are you wearing that mask, and what is that redish liquid on your fine claws?

Situation is nominal. Your guess that our memory has been erased appears to be correct, although the cause of it is unknown.

Without said memories we have no way knowing that you are who you say you are. Do you have any way of verifying your words? Until then all we can say is that our charge is alive and well.
No. 810062 ID: a307f1

dont worry about it old man, we convinced her the city was bad news and she's settled down safely nowhere near it and is doing well. she just wants to do her own thing away from home. but she did say to tell you hi and she loves you. its all good.

>She must have erased your memory somehow. You cannot trust her.
To be fair, without memories, we cannot be sure we can trust you, either. Not can we be sure it was she who did the erasing. (Nor can be we sure our memory was even erased, and we didn't just come into being).

Can you offer us anything that supports your claims?

She tried to climb a tower while hungry and fell. You think she is dead. I am confident she is not. Do you at least remember what the reward I promised you is? If you return her to me, she will be yours to do with what you will. All I care is that she is safe here, with me. Whatever else you decide to do with her is your business. Since you do not have the physical presence to... assert yourself on her, I will be happy to provide that. Once she is back here. Do you have anything else to tell me before you go?

Why would we, instead of listening to a foolish child, listen to a brainless monster?

Some of you do not seem to be interested in my offer. To you, who consider yourselves "virtuous" remember this: Know that you are working alongside those who would undermine you. Who are working at cross purposes to yours. Who will do absolutely anything so that they can watch me rut my idiot daughter until she is BROKEN and WEEPING. And to those who understand the importance of a... father's love... you can get my daughter to listen to you if you tell her this phrase: "Show us your scars." A word of caution - my daughter can hear everything you say while you are with her. I suggest planning now, before you return to her.

You are free to discuss and debate and plan at this time! Outissa will not hear anything you write until the next update, when Chapter 2 begins.
No. 810234 ID: efcc58

I propose that we allow her to do as she wishes for the most part, but prevent her from hurting herself. If she needs guidance, we can offer it to her. I don't want to return her to her father, but his desire to keep her safe is reasonable enough.

Also, we should use that phrase only in emergencies. If we force her to obey us, then we need a good reason. We should always act in her best interests.
No. 810236 ID: 3ce125

Yikes yikes yikes. We are not bringing her back home, that's for sure. I doubt there are any of us who are even interested in his offer; he just said that to cause paranoid infighting.

I'm not even sure we should use the control phrase (though the author will probably come up with a situation to make us want to) because it'll remind her of her father. We can probably manage to keep her safe from now on without resorting to something that drastic. Optimally we'd get her deep enough into civilization that she can get a therapist. Even if the therapist winds up wearing full body armor or talks to her from behind hardened glass or something. We don't know how dangerous she is, after all.
No. 810239 ID: 3740b1

She clearly needs to get home to daddy. We just need to convince her that the world is an even harsher place than she's used to - and that the people she wants for friends all want nothing but to end her existence. The only place she can be is home, and home is where her scars are.

stop me if I'm getting too wild here, but what about this: we get outissa to the city, get her a group of good friends, a nice place to stay, etc.

Then, if she wants it, we get her and her friends trained up and have em come back here and kick this asshole's ass off? no offense old man. well, yes offense.

if she's messed up enough to need a therapist (likely, thanks to uggo here), I dont think having to speak to one behind a glass wall is going to do anything but add more trauma to the heap. if she wants a therapist she probably wouldnt need something like that, and if not I say we dont make her. friendship can be healing.

also, this scar phrase. I dont think saying it would do anything other than just rattle and upset her, and thats what ol barfmask here wants. so I vote for never saying it ever.

Regardless she's probably well aware of who we are and what her father intends of us. Yet she's hidden just about everything important from us thus far. You think she'll trust you any more than us? Both sides will be playing a game of deception.

Under no circumstances are we taking her back to her "father". He seems manipulative and abusive, returning her to him would be bad.

I am wary of telling her about this, it may be better to be honest but it may cause her to not trust us, given that all this seems new to her (e.g. Assuming pressing against the window would open it when it worked for that door) her not listening to us may be bad.

The command phrase has some disturbing implications, and it's not something I want us to use. Hopefully it won't be necessary.

Good. Let's make this clear: We are mercenaries, and your father has contracted our services in priority to your survival. We will be paid in assets when the job is complete. Which means, there is a very high probability that listening to us will keep you from getting yourself killed.

To start off, I'm going to ask you a few questions. I hope, for your survival, you answer truthfully and completely.

1) What are your abilities? This includes skills you have trained in, knowledge that is not common, powers and spellcraft (if such a thing exists in your universe), and passive abilities like resistances to harmful substances or actions.
2) What are your needs? How much sleep do you require? What constitutes a healthy diet? How much water do you drink in a day? How long can you go without water? Do you have any other requirements?
3) Where are you right now? Describe the city as best you can.

Alright. There are things you Need To Know.

1.) We are a multitude. We are NOT one person, or of one voice, or one mind. Keep this in mind.
2.) Some of us have been given the task of making sure you are safe and ensuring your survival. Several of us have taken this job to heart.
3.) Many of us know things that you don't, and have context for things you don't (like that city) and will be able to give you advice that it is vital you will take, to help you stay alive.
4.) However, the method we are using to contact you is compromised. There are others who do NOT care about your survival who are also sending you messages through this mechanism.
5.) So basically, the messages we will give will usually be in three categories: a. Chatter. b. EXTREMELY useful advice that will keep you alive and c. Inane advice from someone who does not have your best interests at heart.
6.) This means several things: when we talk, you need to not just ignore us. You need to pay attention, and quickly categorize whether the person sounds like he knows what he is talking about. Learn our different 'voices' from the way we talk. Pay attention to those who seem to know what they're saying. Also, there are things you can do: interact with us, respond, share things, discuss, answer questions. Give us information and feedback, and make the 'inane' people realize that they can't get you to do stupid things. The more people will tend to see you as a person and your struggles as having meaning, the more the 'inane' comments will drop off.

Now that that's taken care of... someone claiming to be your father gave us that phrase. He didn't mention that it would harm you. I don't know if there are other phrases that you've been trained to react to in a particular way, but you could probably consider those compromised.

Also, point of advice: the people who make cities like that? They tend to not like it when people eat the bodies of other people. Doing so is usually taboo. Even those groups of them that think it's okay some of the time, tend to have lots of rules about when and where it's okay.

Also? You're beautiful. Never let anyone tell you otherwise.

If I had to pick one right now I'd go with the bottom left one. Looks like a party! Maybe they won't let you in, but in that case I'd go with the bottom center one. Long necks are nice.

This looks like an exhibition/prison of sorts, perhaps a zoo. I'm pretty sure you won't be able to get through those windows any more than you did with the other one.

While I don't think this is a good time to be looking for a pet, there is one reason why I'd want to check out those creatures. In case they're food! As far as I'm concerned, this could be an all-you-can-eat buffet. Do you think they could be food? If so, see if you can spot some buttons or levers around the windows.

Good on you! You have worth! But worry about saving yourself a bit, first, yes?

First of all:
Can you give us some more context? Tell us a bit about yourself, your story, your history, where you came from, things like that?

The reason we have so many questions is that we don't know what's important!

For example, your 'father' had insights into our culture, such as being aware of 'Green Anon', a cultural construct of ours. Where might he have gotten such insight?

As far as suggestions -- I would suggest peeking in on civilization. Look into the windows, spend some time watching people. Reconnoiter the area and the building, see if you (or we) can determine it's purpose. Get a measure of the people in it!

You might even be able to just find a door and ask to be let in, if we're lucky!

Either way, the animals are all likely owned, loved, and cared for. So you want to find the people, who are probably bipeds. If they've never seem your species, than you have to signal to them that you are a person. Knock, wave, use species-approrpiate 'I'm friendly!' body language, talk to them in what are clearly words in a language, even if you don't share a language.

Also, when you get to a place that is well lit, do you mind showing off your form to us a bit? I'm having a hard time seeing you using... whatever we are using to see you, but think you are very beautiful from what I can see!

Gestures might work? If you're not completely mute and have some sounds you can make, you could make the friendliest or cutest sounds. Act passive and nonthreatening. Look at everything; you want to give the impression of a curious creature, not a hungry one.

Though, honestly, if you've been taught that only people in the city can be friends, this is likely a waste of time. I guess we can try once though. If this window doesn't work out, we should just focus on the city I think. The only reason this might be productive is if your teacher was misinformed, or their information was out of date.

>gestures, sounds
You're not being specific. There's no way she would be able to guess what kind of gestures you mean. And there's no way she would understand what is "cute" or "friendly" as that is entirely subjective.

>speaking is very important
Yes, speaking through vibrations in the air is a common form of communication and it's important because the whole idea of friendship stands on the ability to properly communicate. But using air vibrations may not be the only way to do it, so let me ask you this. What forms of communication have you used in the past? How did you communicate with your own kind?

(What about the MILK STAT?)
Do you ever (accidentally) produce milk?
What. What's wrong with using milk to communicate! In theory, milk could contain pheromones to convey mental state, or even meaning~~
No. 810893 ID: 3740b1

So what is your natural means of communication, if you don't mind my asking? Since you mentioned even "thinking in words" is something you taught yourself.
No. 810894 ID: 8cb228

Can you carefully and slowly mouth the words "I can't talk", and point to your throat or rub your throat and cough like you have a sore throat? Can you whisper words? Even without vocal chords, you should be able to do a relatively loud stage whisper, unless your throat is otherwise injured to prevent even that.
No. 810895 ID: 8cb228

Also, what is the reason given that only people in the city can make friends? If you could tell us more about this, we can help you make a judgment about whether or not your teacher is lying to you on this topic.
No. 810896 ID: 8cb228

Also can you whistle and adjust your tone while whistling? Also if you see anything that you could use to be a small white flag to wave, that is a universal symbol of surrender or that you seek peaceful communication.

Also, keep an eye out for if the thing you are trying to talk to might not actually be sentient.

Also, if it holds something unfamiliar, watch the eyes and the stance to determine if whatever it is may be a weapon.
No. 810903 ID: 8c51fa

>I do not understand. You are not in the city. This is not the city. I need to go to the city to find friends. That is what the people who taught me told me.
That's not entirely accurate. To find new friends, you need to meet people. A city has many people in it, so it's a good place to go if you want a friend, but a person you meet outside of the city can also become your friend. Whether or not a person is a potential friend depends on several factors; which are difficult to summarize simply; a person's location can be connected to some of these factors, but it's not the only one.

When you were told to go to the city to find friends, were you told why? Do you remember the exact words of the person who gave you this advice?

What do you mean by "friend", and why do you want one?

It is important that you appear as if you are unlikely to attack the person. For example, don't display your fangs or claws openly, and don't crouch in preparation to suddenly leap at them. Loud noises and quick, sudden movements should be avoided. In general, think about what you would expect if you saw a person or animal do a certain thing; if you would expect them to attack you afterwards, then you shouldn't do it.

If they begin to approach you, that's a good sign. It means they aren't certain they'll be in danger from being near you, and may be curious about your intentions. If this happens, you can approach them as well. Don't approach too quickly, or you might startle them. Moving as quickly as they do is probably safe.

The person may attempt to communicate. If this happens, then the appropriate response depends on the specific message which they intend to convey.
No. 810904 ID: 47160d

A friend is just someone you like being around that likes you too, as well as you both wanting to help eachother. We can be friends, as can some people in the city, but the same goes for people in other places. Perhaps those that taught you were your friends even...?
No. 811053 ID: 8cb228

Just something to note? We are really, really used to thinking in words. Most of the people in or near the city will be used to thinking in words. Those that don't do so will probably have had to train themselves to not think in words, perhaps for religious reasons. The reason why is when you want to make civilizations and cities, and you can only communicate in words, than training people to mainly think in words is super helpful.

Huh well that's a pleasant turnaround. Thank you for the consideration.

>I do not understand. You are not in the city. This is not the city. I need to go to the city to find friends. That is what the people who taught me told me.
Friends can be found in the city, but I don't think they're exclusive to it.

>Unless it is dirty or something is covering it.
What was covering it before you fell in the water?

No. 811551 ID: 7fad5d

You gently wrap your arms around the upper torso of the other party and hold them close, picking them up to compensate for height differences as needed. This is a form of social bonding called a "hug". It indicates that Beatrix wishes to be friends with you. Put her back down and let go when she indicates that the hug is over by letting go. Yinglets are small, friendly, scatterbrained creatures. They're generally harmless but they like to talk and they stereotypically have issues focusing on one thing at a time. They also tend to be very curious.

Hug Beatrix and, afterward, point at your throat again while you shake your head and open and close your hand to mimic a mouth talking.

squat down to her level and see what she does. if she loosens the scarf just indicate again that you cant talk. if she embraces you, its a hug.

if she hugs you its probably because you made the sad sound and she wants to cheer you up. I think its probably the hug that she wants to do.

>What do you know about yinglets?
They're short. And excitable. Tend to talk with a lisp. More prone to mutation than some other species, I think.

>What does she want!? What do I do!?
You are being invited to join in a social ritual where you wrap your arms around each other's torso. It's called a "hug".

I believe Beatrix is offering it as a gesture of comfort in recognition of the fact you cannot speak.
No. 811565 ID: ba506f

think she want's a hug, give her a hug I guess?
No. 811566 ID: 13fded

Do not press her in any way! If you hug her, or hold her hand, or any other interaction just make the gestures as gently as you can. Yinglets are weak and fragile, and you are unnaturally strong, if you squish her your new friend will be no more.

Obviously there isn't much need to explain much about yinglets since she is so eager to do this herself, but here are some details to consider:
Most yinglets are male, so females are overprotected and there is a high level of homosexuality or even something you could call transsexuality among the male. It's uncommon to see a female yinglet traveling alone, it's possible that Beatrix is in fact male. If you are curious consider the absence of a tuft of hair at the end of her tail and the absence of visible breasts as an indication that she is in fact male.
It's not uncommon for yinglets to be owned by humans as pets. It's possible that Beatrix is traveling with someone who's temperament doesn't resemble a naive hyperactive teenager. So it's possible that someone else will return to this room and be surprised by your presence.

Oh! I have seen other people do it and sometimes the people who taught me said that they wanted to do it but they were not allowed.

My father did not want anyone to touch me. I am very glad that I decided to leave this morning.

She talks a lot!

>Be gentle do not hurt
N...no! I would not want her to be no more. That is very sad to think about.

>No breasts or tail tuft = male
She is fluffy all over but I see small breasts. If a female yinglet shaves their tail tuft do they become a male yinglet?

I can feel her heart in her chest. It is like when I hold prey very close before eating them. When I can feel their life pulsing in their veins. But I do not want to eat her.

No. 811578 ID: 8cb228

It's more that the tail is naturally a particular way between the genders. But any can style their fur any way they want, of course. Just doing that doesn't change the gender!

Relax, calm down, cry a little if you have to. Keep hugging her for a bit. Purr some more, maybe! I think she will understand your sadness and your need to hold the hug for a little bit until you calm down.

Eventually, when you're ready, maybe she can make you some of that tea? Tea can be calming, too!
No. 811581 ID: 91ee5f

When you're done hugging her, you can take her up on her offer to have some tea. You can ask her- oh, that's right, you can't talk. Uh.....

I've got an idea! She said she was drinking tea earlier, so look around for the cup she was drinking from. When you see it, chirp to get her attention, then point at the cup and then point at yourself. Hopefully, she'll understand that you're trying to tell her that you would like to have some tea.

>I purr. I have not purred like this since I was very young.
Awww, that's adorable!
No. 811584 ID: 8cb228

You could also make a gesture like carefully, daintily drinking out of a cup, while holding the cup with one hand and carefully raising it to your mouth and then sucking the (ouch, hot! got to cool it and only have a little at a time!) liquid into your mouth|?

That's definitely a way to ask, 'may I have some tea?'

Do you like the hug? You know what would make it even better? There are two things.

First, you should groom her. Lick her cheeks and then her neck.
And second, you should place Beatrix' tail between your legs. Hugging its tail between your legs would feel amazing.

Of course, if she says it's too much for her, you should stop.

You poor, deluded soul. I'm speaking about you, Outissa, not this patronizing ass.

Hug the yinglet harder. A little harder... Harder. It is normal for their eyes to start bulging out. This is due to their haphazard anatomy as a mistake of evolution.
No. 811631 ID: 8cb228

Alright. General guidelines.

Things like licking or kissing or things with touching the torso on down? SOME races consider those sorts of things, depending on the particulars, to be sexual or precursors to sex. You don't know about her species or culture, best be cautious.

Let her initiate contact, like she did with the hug. She knows platonic affectionate contact more than you do! Let her lead!

Also, in general, be soft and gentle. You're going more for 'learning about civilization' and 'how to act in the world of those more fragile than you'. More than just physical touch, follow her lead for social cues, like sitting at the table or how to drink tea or things like that.
No. 811670 ID: cc5ab4

Interesting that a female Yinglet would be all alone out here. They tend to be rather sheltered by the males, since females are less common and therefore precious to a community.

Be careful about the hugging strength, they is small and fragile.

She thinks you are interested in sex. She interpreted that as 'seeking sexuality', NOT 'seeking social grooming'. Are you interested in sexual times with her?

If so: continue licking her affectionately

If not: pull back a little bit and make an embarrassed and bashful chirp and make 'oops I'm embarrassed' body language.

Only you can decide if you are interested in a sexual encounter or not!

That said, you might want to downgrade to 'not interested in sex, but interested in social grooming.' Pull back, and make motions like a cat grooming her fur, like licking your arm, and then make motions like a human using a brush on your fur, and then a brush on her fur, or licking her fur, but not sensually, as if to clean it.

Anyway, you want it and she wants it. You have the privacy and you're safe. You're not hungry. Logically, this seems like a perfect opportunity for this kind of thing.

You have chosen LARGE KETZA. The search narrows. It finds the perfect agent. The one that is the best for our task. There he is. His name is Dzi. He has a family - a mate and a young daughter. He is crafty, and clever, but lacks self-confidence. His deepest fear is that he is failing his family, and he will do anything out of LOVE for them. Yes. I will get to work on him. He will be ready very soon.

Dzi will operate autonomously - however, I have given you some measure of control over him. Continue to watch my daughter, and when you see him, you will be able to give him direction. He will ONLY listen to those who have pledged loyalty to me.

(You are free to discuss and plan at this time! Outissa will not hear anything you write until the next update, when Chapter 3 begins.)

(IMPORTANT NOTE to those who have given a loyalty pledge! I HIGHLY recommend that if you have a dynamic IP that you please, please, please start posting with a name. You are not required to, however it will make it much easier to track who you are.

ADDITIONAL NOTE: When you are following Outissa you CAN choose to pledge loyalty at any time, as long as you participated in at least one vote with her father.

If you have any further questions, please ask them in the disthread: https://tgchan.org/kusaba/questdis/res/112766.html)

"Amaranth", you say? Curious. A third being who is aware of you. I will have to see who this "Amaranth" is. Perhaps they are why I cannot find my daughter. Perhaps they are why I have suddenly found myself unable to see three of you. As I was saying. One more thing. My Loyal Ones: You can assist my daughter. You can even assist those who oppose me. I encourage it. But... DO NOT BETRAY ME. Your intent. Your thoughts. Those matter not. All that matters are your actions here. The words that you say. Those are everything in this realm.

Some sort of living weapon they deployed?

They expect you to get flushed out of the window. If the hallway continues in the other direction, go that way. If the only other way is back into the room, you will need to risk the window.

Beatrix cannot survive the fall. Even if you land unharmed, the momentum will carry her further and she will likely die.

As such, climbing is the only option in the event of a window escape. Expect to be fired upon by ranged weapons. Erratic movements.

If you can swim well, go for the water once you are at a height that will not dislodge Beatrix from you. Water disrupts the firing path of ranged weapons.

We already know plenty about him from the last update. He just assaulted her and based on his words, he's a psycho. It's likely he's been hurting her for her whole life and he's one of the reasons she ran away. He's really really bad news.

>...what should I do?
He's one of the reasons you ran away, isn't he? I wouldn't forgive him. You shouldn't forgive him. Sooner or later he will hurt you again. Steal from you. Nothing good will come of this.

And yet, I can't force myself to leave him here.

It's extremely important that you mention them early and that he agrees with them, otherwise you're just doing more harm to the both of you. If he doesn't agree to compromise, then he would never stop being clingy and immature. Not only that, things would turn into a shitshow as he would assault you again the moment you mentioned something he wouldn't like.
So don't let him have any expectations. He needs to be prepared for the two of you to go their separate ways.

Also, the radio voices are rude. She is a filthy yinglet, not a goddamn yinglet.

If No One doesn't have time to answer questions, what makes you think she has time to ask them?

Alright let's take him, trustnis good

First of all, there's a lot to explain about her brother. Second, she's not good with explaining stuff to being with, requiring extra time to choose the right words. Third, she's distressed and can't think right now.
So yeah, while she may not have the time to talk about her brother, asking her brother to obey her can be done in a short sentence.
And lastly, in case there really is no time at all, I specifically wrote "early" and not "immediately". Which means, she can first take him, and then explain the conditions while they run.

>Bring him
Beatrix and I urge my brother to follow. He must hurry!

>Give me time I will be clear, given time you'll understand
>What possesses me to right what we have suffered.
That can wait until we are safe.

"Bye, people! Maybe we will see you later, yes?"

"...they're escaping!..."
"...flanked... team in position..."

Waah, all those sexins we didnt have! Tragic.
No. 814015 ID: 17c2ee

Sure, it's tragic that neither of Outissa's family members who showed up raped her.

I doubt there was a way daddy was Astral projecting to bang her or we were getting bug fucked in the 30 seconds we had before getting killed by the mystery light. I imagine it was back in the tower or some of the other windows.

Beatrix and.....Amaranth?

I wonder what it means by voices tainted?
No. 814184 ID: 91ee5f

Probably counting whoever's loyal to Outissa's father.
No. 814224 ID: ba56e6

Probably the human woman from the tower.

People who sided with Outissa's dad.

It's interesting how they're mentioned as having been "tainted". I mean, they made an intentional decision and the only thing that happened was a formalization. Something changed, but what.
