Yeah...Otet pays more attention to baby stuff than I do, I'm gonna ask her if there's any more caveats on this I should tell you about. 

Permalink

I won't do magic to Katin till you say it's okay.

But if I can I also want to fix her hair.

Permalink

Fix her--make it grow in red?

Permalink

Yeah, so I don't have to keep fussing with it all the time.

Permalink

Otet can do that next time we visit no problem. I could too but it's more efficient if she does it.

Permalink

Either way, I'm easy.

Permalink

I dunno if anything bad could happen from messing up recoloring hair but, like, on general principles it's safer to not try something for the first time on a baby or without a spotter.

Permalink

Yeah, I don't wanna turn more of her pink or hurt her or anything.

Permalink

I think with hair the risks are more that you might damage the follicles? I dunno specifically. 

Ada's cooing over the pictures of Katin you said Otet could show her and--I mean, Otet's extremely herself, if Ada's like her then I'd expect her to be better about it than most clean Amentans but she's not even flinching or anything, I think that's slightly weirder than I'd expect? I dunno.

Permalink

I mean, Katin doesn't have any visible hair.

Permalink

True. 

The thing about Otet is that she's good at--not picking up ambient stupid? But pollution instinct is a real thing. So, like--I wouldn't be surprised if an Amentan Otet decided to, I dunno, tackle a cop who was beating up a red for "lunging" but if this involved touching the red I would sorta also expect her to freak out and dash for the shower after the red had gotten away? And, like, also I'm aware that I'm biased because Otet's my sister and I love her.

It's not a good idea to tackle cops. If you were wondering.

Permalink

I wasn't planning on it.

Permalink

Good.

Permalink

It was more intended to be flippant than an actual analysis of what she would do.

Permalink

Maybe she'd be one of those people who's horribly conflicted about it if they see a red baby in spring.

Permalink

Unless it is a bald photograph, apparently.

Permalink

And another green-haired girl saunters up. 

"Hey, Ada, if your surprise is another dumb gag you have to cover my what the fuck?"

Permalink

"So it turns out the magic aliens are bizarrely similar to more than just your species." 

Permalink

"To more than--that quip was kinda vague, not sure what you meant by it exactly--uh are you like shapeshifters or something is that why you look so low-budget?"

Permalink

Snrk. "No. We just look like this, I mean we're magic so there've been a few touch-ups and so on, but no, your fantasy aliens are not only low-budget they are twins with a geneticist parent. With weirdly matching personalities." 

Permalink

"Thaaaaat relocates the what the fuck but does not eliminate it." 

Permalink

"I know! It's bizarre!" 

Permalink

"We don't have an alien explanation for it or anything, it just...seems to be the case." 

Permalink

"--I guess this sheds new light on the North Pole thing."
