pretty in pink
peka is the erogamer
Permalink Eye

She hates her life. It's spring and she's digging a latrine when she should be home with her baby and if she deserts and is lucky enough not to just be shot for that then in a month she'll abruptly cease to have a baby.

Shovel bites dirt. Dirt goes in pile around the red flag. And repeat, and repeat.

Permalink Eye

A wall of pink-violet text appears in front of her. 

Peka Atan
"The Erogamer"
LVL: 1 (0%)

Stats:

DOM: 0/430

SUB: 10/620

BOD: 25 (+)

LST: 30 (+)

SED: 12 (+)

FUK: 22 (+)

PRV: 15 (+)

ERO: 10 (+)

Points: 5

Money: 30tap

Description:  Peka Atan is the first of the three children of an undertaker and an autopsy tech; she's got a credit on layaway and a baby hanging in the balance. She lives at their home, when she's at home, which she isn't because the army pays better than anything in-district and they were hiring. She loves her baby, music, and sex, and it's that last thing that makes her a candidate for the Erogame.

Skills:

Erogamer's Body (Lvl MAX): The biological ability to live your life as an erogame. Venereal disease doesn't exist for you. Arbitrarily large appendages can fit inside any of your orifices. You heal from all marks with a good night's sleep, ready for the next day's adventures. Other aspects of this skill depend on the BOD stat.

Erogamer's Mind (Lvl MAX): The mental flexibility to live your life as an erogame. You're more able to accept the realities of your new world. You'll also bounce back from painful, upsetting and bizarre sexual experiences with relative ease. Rape can be anything from a recoverable trauma to a random afternoon, but it won't ruin your life. Other aspects of this skill depend on the LST and PRV stats.

Erogamer's World (Lvl MAX): The consent of reality to live your life as an erogame. People are never too preoccupied to consider sex or romance, not while you're around. Bystanders won't ignore what you do, but they're unlikely to actually stop you. Those who do decide to involve themselves are drawn into the logic of the Erogame. If you go far enough that an authority sees no choice but to intervene… they won't treat you as a simple criminal. Other aspects of this skill depend on the ERO stat.

Perks:

Pretty in Pink: Your caste is “Pink.” Everyone can immediately tell this by looking at you. Pinks are a magical caste that doesn’t play by the rules. Pinks are completely immune to pollution, and can therefore interact with reds or do red work with no censure (although objects in a pink’s possession can be polluted, including clothing, which means no one will bat an eye at you walking around naked just in case, no matter how formal the setting). Pinkness occasionally occurs spontaneously in the general population, and all a pink’s children will be pink regardless of the other parent’s caste. Further aspects of this perk will depend on your ERO.

Info // Character Stats:

LVL / Level: The quantified totality of your potency as an erogame character. The effect of this characteristic goes beyond just the 5 extra stat points you get per level, and the additional perk point you receive every 5th level.

BOD / Body: Your physical attractiveness. At higher levels, your body becomes able to enact more exotic erogame events.

LST / Lust: The intensity of your sexual urges. How easy it is to turn your keyhole.

SED / Seduction: Your ability to seduce others, to pique their interest and arouse their desire.

FUK / Fucking: Your ability to perform in bed and give others pleasure… or other sensations.

PRV / Perversion: Your descent into the world of naughtiness, fetish, deviance, and corruption.

ERO / Erogame Logic: The extent to which the world will bend---or can be bent by you---to create romantic and sexual situations in defiance of probability. Or at higher levels, physics.

DOM / Dominant Energy: Based off SED and FUK, fueling skills that invoke your dominance, sadism, or mastery.

SUB / Submissive Energy: Based off LST and PRV, fueling skills that invoke your submission, masochism, or service.

Info // Character Stats // Level:

At LVL 1, and 0% progress toward the next level, you're as pathetic as you'll ever be.

You can increase your level by completing the quests the Erogame offers you, or by causing romantic and sexual events to happen to you or around you. The more difficult the challenge, the greater the rewards.

Info // Character Stats // Body:


At a BOD of 2
5, you're the prettiest person in the room unless the room is hosting a mixer for a modeling agency.

You can increase this stat through exhibitionism, and other acts that invoke the pure beauty and power of your
nubile form.

Info // Character Stats // Lust:

At a LST of 30, you’re as horny outside of spring as most people are in spring.

You gain in this stat while experiencing sexual urges that are unusually intense or that go on unusually long.

Info // Character Stats // Seduction:

Your SED of 12 makes you a little better than average at enticing others to have sex with you. Not bad, but far from your full potential.

You can increase this stat by arousing the romantic interest or sexual desire of others, and successfully pursuing them or being caught.

Info // Character Stats // Fucking:

Your FUK of 22 makes you good at what you do. Combined with your natural enthusiasm, you’re approaching professional level. Only approaching, though. You’re going to need a little more practice first.

How do you increase this stat? Take a fucking guess. 

Info // Character Stats // Perversion:

Your PRV of 15, given your relative experience, is nothing to write home about. You’re not especially out there, nor are you a sheltered naif.

You can increase this stat by being a little less close-minded about things, and acting accordingly.

Info // Character Stats // Erogame Logic:

At an ERO of 10, your life has become an erogame taking place in a mostly realistic setting. What happens to you might seem unlikely to others, but it won't break their belief in a sane universe… yet. Witnesses will reach for explanations other than the Erogame, but they'll still notice the unusual events.

If you keep pushing probability to its limits, then probability will learn to be a bit more flexible down there, relax and take it in and not protest so much.

Info // Character Stats // Dominant and Submissive Energy:

If this were a different game, you'd have mana and hit points.

And they'd refill just from you sitting around on your ass doing nothing.

 

Lol.

Permalink Eye

 

Wut.

She's too startled to read at first, but the text is between her and getting this latrine done on time so she scans it looking for a way to dismiss it, and it doesn't have that but it does have a whole lot of wut.

Permalink Eye

The text continues to sit there, the plus signs next to the stats beckoning metaphorically.

Permalink Eye

There isn't even a dismiss button or anything. She rereads the text looking for instructions and finally tries jabbing SED's plus sign five times in case that helps.

Permalink Eye

The plus signs vanish, and then the rest of the text wall. In its place appear the words:

Quest Available: Music is the Universal Language

Seduce the Anitami unit's red despite not knowing any of their language aside from song lyrics.

Success: +300xp

Failure: Your dry spell days tally marker ticks up by one

Accept: Y/N

Permalink Eye

She waves at the letters as though batting at flies. This doesn't work. ...she considers, turns up another shovelful of dirt, hits Y.

Permalink Eye

The text vanishes. 

Permalink Eye

She finishes digging.

...she goes back to her tent and she sits outside of it and sings.

Permalink Eye

After a little while the Anitami red comes out to listen. 

Permalink Eye

 

She switches to a suggestive clubby song in Anitami when she's done with the first one.

Permalink Eye

He smiles. 

Permalink Eye

She knows what the lines mean, although she's not confident on how the words divvy up except the ones that are similar to Tapai one.

The last line of the chorus is "won't somebody keep me company this fine spring night". She... smiles back, repeats it without the bounce of the tune.

Permalink Eye

He asks something in Anitami. 

Permalink Eye

"Tapap," she says apologetically. "All I wanna do is sing all day and night~."

Permalink Eye

He nods and steps closer. 

Permalink Eye

She holds out a hand.

Permalink Eye

He grins and takes it. 

Permalink Eye

And she tugs him into her lap and kisses him.

Permalink Eye

Ooh. He is very pleased by this development. 

Permalink Eye

So is she! It's spring, after all, and she might not have had the song lyrics idea without ?????help?????, and he's pretty squeezable.

Permalink Eye

Investigation of his squeezability may lead to the discovery that he is also ticklish!

Permalink Eye

That's adorable.

Permalink Eye

Well she is adorable. 

Permalink Eye

Is she now. Would he like to be tugged into her tent to convince her of this.

Permalink Eye

He would love this. 

Permalink Eye

Now they are in her tent! How about they get out of these stupid army uniforms!

Permalink Eye

These army uniforms are so stupid. He's quite enthusiastic about eliminating them from their consideration for the moment. 

Permalink Eye

Great. She thinks by any reasonable definition she has seduced him by now but it's not like she's going to kick him out for not materializing her three hundred XP, whatever the actual fuck, so she puts the weird hallucinatory text out of her mind for the moment and decides to see if he is also ticklish when nibbled.

Permalink Eye

Ooh he is so ticklish when nibbled. 

Permalink Eye

Great.

Permalink Eye

Does she have any excellent reactions to being nibbled?

Permalink Eye

Yes. They are a) squirming b) delight c) gasping.

Permalink Eye

Gosh those are some awesome reactions. Clearly he needs to nibble her some more. 

Permalink Eye

Yes he does. He absolutely does. How about here and there and there and here.

Permalink Eye

He has an excellent sense of direction. 

Permalink Eye

Oh good. She does too, as it happens.

Permalink Eye

Oooooooh.

Permalink Eye

They will surely find their way around together all right by their powers combined.

Permalink Eye

They surely will.

Once finding is all done and the Anitami red is curled up for a nap, a set of violet words appears.

Quest complete! Music is the Universal Language 

The language barrier is no match for your charms. 

+300xp

Your level has increased by 1!

Permalink Eye

"- do I - operate this by - talking maybe or waving my arms," she mutters.

Permalink Eye

When she says "talking," the stats appear again.

Permalink Eye

 

She loads Citrus on her everything and searches "pink caste".

Permalink Eye

There is a short terrible Summarybank article that repeats the information in the perk description.

Permalink Eye

She can't exactly wake up the Anitami red for questioning, she doesn't speak the language.

......she goes on Seenit and makes a throwaway account and finds the least gatekept /castepolitics section and ignores the "no reds" policy and makes a post that just says "Pinks: discuss".

Permalink Eye

A couple of comments trickle in; one is that walking around naked all the time would be hot and another is jealous of pinks for being able to wear red hats without there being Unfortunate Implications. 

Permalink Eye

Well.

She can... go sit out of her tent in the buff and see if anyone has anything to say about that, it's warm enough.

Permalink Eye

No one appears to have anything to say about it, although some of the relatively few greys who look in the direction of the undertaker tents give her appreciative looks. Open, unselfconscious appreciative looks, the kind you give a perfectly normal pretty person in spring, not the furtive or followed-up-with-horrified-realization kind clean people sometimes give reds. 

Permalink Eye

...ooh.

Permalink Eye

Raising the morale of the nearby army unit causes your BOD to go up by 1!

Permalink Eye

...heh. She strikes a pose. She is not yet bold enough to wave.

Permalink Eye

Someone wolf-whistles. 

Permalink Eye

She laughs.

She checks her everything to see if there's anything else in the Seenit thread, but then - wonders suddenly what this means for Katin's credit, if it's hereditary -

She checks her credit lease account.

Permalink Eye

Apparently pink credits are cheaper than red ones, because that's what it says, pink credit, paid off completely. 

Permalink Eye

!!!!!!

Permalink Eye

She emails her mom about putting in for a discharge. Her mom says it's about time.

She puts in for her discharge.

Permalink Eye

It's only a few minutes later when she's informed that her discharge has been approved. 

Permalink Eye

Gosh, that was fast.

She hops in the cab of her army truck naked to drive it back into Tapa and drop it off.

Permalink Eye

No one comments on the fact that she's naked. 

Permalink Eye

That's pretty fun.

She hands in the truck and gets a ride to her district from a red army driver.

Permalink Eye

The army driver doesn't comment on the fact that she's naked either, although she does steal occasional glances. 

Permalink Eye

"Isn't it wild that I can just go around naked all the time?"

Permalink Eye

Grin. "I guess so."

Permalink Eye

"I'm glad it's warm enough."

Permalink Eye

"What d'you do when it's not?"

Permalink Eye

"Usually I wear clothes and don't go out of the district. Since my family's there and clothes make it so hard to go back and forth."

Permalink Eye

"Makes sense."

Permalink Eye

"Am, uh, am I the only pink you've ever met?"

Permalink Eye

"I talked to someone on the Internet once who claimed to be, but it's hard to be sure, you can only really tell in person."

Permalink Eye

"It's funny that way, yep. If you aren't on too tight a schedule you could see my baby when we get to my district."

Permalink Eye

"Ooooooh."

Permalink Eye

Peka giggles.

Permalink Eye

"Lucky," she sighs. 

Permalink Eye

"Oh, well, she was a surprise actually."

Permalink Eye

"--Oh. Even though you're not really--I'm sorry to hear that."

Permalink Eye

"Maybe he had some kind of deficit. But she's adorable and I love her to bits."

Permalink Eye

"I'm glad to hear that."

Permalink Eye

"I'd show you pictures but you're driving."

Permalink Eye

"I would absolutely crash if you showed me pictures, I spring pretty badly," she sighs. 

Permalink Eye

"Just in the babies way?"

Permalink Eye

"--Not just in the babies way."

Permalink Eye

"Job must be rough, takes you all over away from home..."

Permalink Eye

She sighs. "Yeah. Not that being at home would even help that much, my last boyfriend dumped me over the winter. The jerk."

Permalink Eye

"Boooooo."

Permalink Eye

"I guess that means I'm better off without him but right now it's not like I need a stunning personality."

Permalink Eye

"Isn't that always the way. My girlfriend and I broke up earlier this spring because we had disparate sex drives."

Permalink Eye

"Oh? In which direction?"

Permalink Eye

"I was 'pesky', she said."

Permalink Eye

Giggle. "Her loss."

Permalink Eye

"I guess sometimes even in spring she wanted to do other stuff."

Permalink Eye

"I can't imagine breaking up with someone who has a baby because they wanted sex too much."

Permalink Eye

"That was before I was pregnant."

Permalink Eye

"Fair. Still."

Permalink Eye

"We hook up but we have a rule that she has to ask me, no pestering."

Permalink Eye

"Huh, okay. That seems like it could work."

Permalink Eye

"It does... as far as it goes..."

Permalink Eye

She raises an eyebrow flirtatiously. "Mm?"

Permalink Eye

"But she doesn't ask very often, see..."

Permalink Eye

"I think I do see."

Permalink Eye

"If you don't have to drive back straight away you can come to my house, have a look at the baby... maybe she'll nap..."

Permalink Eye

"I do not have to drive straight back and that sounds like a fantastic idea on every conceivable level."

Permalink Eye

Peka giggles.

Permalink Eye

The driver winks. 

Permalink Eye

"What's your name, I'm Peka."

Permalink Eye

"I'm Ihine."

Permalink Eye

"It is very nice to meet you, Ihine."

Permalink Eye

"It is an absolute delight to meet you, Peka."

Permalink Eye

"Today is shaping up to be just really great all around."

Permalink Eye

"Discharges're like that! Especially if you have a baby."

Permalink Eye

"Mine came in really fast, it was great."

Permalink Eye

"I'm glad to hear it!"

Permalink Eye

"Noticed I had enough for the credit and bam."

Permalink Eye

The driver sighs enviously again. 

Permalink Eye

"You'll get there someday."

Permalink Eye

"I knoooooow."

Permalink Eye

"You will find somebody way better than your old boyfriend even if that means 'your old boyfriend but after character development' and you will have the most wonderful li'l baby."

Permalink Eye

She squirms. "I know, you're right--"

Permalink Eye

"And in the meantime you can hold mine. I have a one year old brother too."

Permalink Eye

"Awwwwwwwwww."

Permalink Eye

"He holds her! It's adorable!"

Permalink Eye

She squeaks. 

Permalink Eye

And soon enough they reach Peka's district.

Permalink Eye

The driver parks carefully and then gets out as fast as physiologically possible. 

Permalink Eye

Peka hops out of the truck still stark naked and carrying only her pocket everything. She shows Ihine to her house.

Permalink Eye

Absolutely nobody comments on her nudity. Ihine is practically vibrating by the time they get to the house. 

Permalink Eye

And here is Peka's baby! Peka's little sister is three and brings her the baby and hugs her as though it is perfectly irrelevant that Peka's naked.

Permalink Eye

Ihine is utterly fascinated by this baby. 

Permalink Eye

Katin is still very small. Peka cradles her and takes Ihine's hand to let her pet Katin's... hair. She has hair. Peka supposes everyone can tell by looking that she is pink and has accordingly been permitted to grow hair now. It's peachy-colored.

Permalink Eye

Ihine delightedly pets the peachy pink baby. 

Permalink Eye

Katin waves an arm at her.

Permalink Eye

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"What a good baby," Ihine squeaks in effervescent delight.
Permalink Eye

"Mm-hm! She's my li'l sweetheart!" Peka kisses Katin's forehead.

One may presume that the adoration of the baby goes on for some time.

Permalink Eye

The baby is so adored. Eventually though the baby will need to sleep and Ihine will smile at Peka. 

Permalink Eye

Katin goes down for a nap in the room she shares with Shahn when she's not sleeping in a grownup's bed, and Peka shoos Apef out of the room she shares with her, and leads Ihine into it and kisses her.

Permalink Eye

Then today will be the Best Day for both Peka and Ihine!

Permalink Eye

It's just a really really good day! Perfect for seducing random red army drivers.

Permalink Eye

The relevant red army driver is super in agreement with her on that. 

Permalink Eye

And when even a couple of springing folks are done with what springing folks do, and Apef can be heard pacing in annoyance outside the door, Ihine should probably wear clothes and Peka should go pick up her baby again, who sounds awake now.

Permalink Eye

Ihine cheerfully dons clothes and ooh baby. 

Ero Achievement: Fucking a badly-springing woman until even she doesn't want any more. +100xp

Permalink Eye

Heh.

When Peka's dad is home from work he invites Ihine to stay for dinner.

Permalink Eye

Ihine would be delighted to stay for dinner, unless she catches any signals that the invitation is only to be polite and she has overstayed her welcome. 

Permalink Eye

Peka doesn't mind at all if she stays but the invitation is perfunctory on the dad's part.

Permalink Eye

Ihine will bid a reluctant goodbye, then; she does need to get the truck back. 

Permalink Eye

"Bye! It was great to meet you!"

Permalink Eye

"It was great to meet you! D'you want my everything number?"

Permalink Eye

"Sure!" And they can swap contact info.

Permalink Eye

And Ihine bids her a very cheerful goobye.

Ero Achievement: Potential Harem member unlocked! +300xp

Permalink Eye

"- potential harem member info?" tries Peka in barely a whisper, pacing Katin up and down the hallway.

Permalink Eye

Nope. 

Permalink Eye

"Achievement info?"

Permalink Eye

No.

Quest Available: Milk and Honey

Seduce someone into buying you lactation hormones to feed your baby yourself.

Success: 1,000xp, "Milky" status

Failure: -2 Reputation, "Gold digger" status

Accept: Y/N

Permalink Eye

Gosh. "Doooooo I get a hint?"

Permalink Eye

Nothing. 

Permalink Eye

 

Well. She isn't going to find anyone who can get her lactation-inducers in-district.

...leaving is scary.

She dithers over that for a while, then takes Katin's onesie off (Katin, too, is pink), grabs a bottle, and goes to... the edge of the district, just beside where a truck would go out.

She hits Y, once she is leaning on a building casually, and conspicuously bottle-feeds Katin.

Permalink Eye

She gets some appreciative looks, but no one seems willing to get close enough to the red district to interact with her. 

Permalink Eye

The quests don't seem timed, or at least not very timed. She has been pretty adventurous today and does not quiiiiite want to step out. She'll stand here feeding Katin till the bottle's empty in case later passersby are more interested. After a minute she starts singing.

Permalink Eye

Heartfelt Song: At Lvl 1 of this skill, your singing has begun to convey your feelings straight from one heart to another, especially when what you're feeling is that you'd like to ero with someone.

Some people stop to listen to her singing. 

Permalink Eye

Gosh.

She scans the listeners to see who she might most wish to sing at.

Permalink Eye

Would she like to sing at:

--A pretty orange in a nurse's uniform?

--A pretty, stressed-looking yellow?

--Either of these two purples, both very pretty, one looking vaguely Mad At Everyone In The World Except Peka And Babies and the other humming along and tapping his foot to the beat?

Permalink Eye

Maybe not an orange today.

The yellow looks like he needs to unwind! She attempts to sing... at... the yellow. She's in the middle of a lullaby for Katin, since she didn't know she was going to get sexy singing powers when she started singing, but she can conclude next verse and switch to something - friendlier. Hmmm, maybe Clouds Over Cities, that's pleasingly ambiguous.

Permalink Eye

The yellow bites his lip and blushes. 

Permalink Eye

Katin sucks on her bottle; it's about two-thirds gone now. Peka sways as she sings with increasing implied yet bewildering metaphor about clouds over cities.

Permalink Eye

...The yellow hesitantly starts to walk over. 

Permalink Eye

Peka waves encouragingly at him insofar as she can with one arm under Katin and the other holding a bottle.

Permalink Eye

The yellow continues approaching but is careful to stay away from the bottle itself. "Hi," he says. 

Permalink Eye

"Hi! The bottle's clean, I ran it through the sterilizer before I put formula in," Peka says. She's not sure how normal pollution instincts work but she thinks bottle sterilizers probably cut it. "What's your name? I'm Peka."

Permalink Eye

He relaxes. "I'm Peshak."

Permalink Eye

"Nice to meet you, Peshak. And this is Katin."

Permalink Eye

He beams at the baby. "Hi, Katin!"

Permalink Eye

Peka waves Katin's hand at him.

Permalink Eye

"She is the cutest thing," he sighs. 

Permalink Eye

"I know, right? You can pet her if you want." Since she has hair now. Pet pet.

Permalink Eye

!!!!!! petting!!!

He pets the pretty peachy baby. 

Permalink Eye

Katin finishes her milk and burps. Peka kisses her face.

Permalink Eye

 

"Can I hold her?"

Permalink Eye

"Sure."

Permalink Eye

He takes the baby reverently, holding her as though she were made of eggshells and diamond. 

Permalink Eye

Peka keeps her finger wrapped up in Katin's clutching little fingers rather than relinquish her altogether. "Do you have any?"

Permalink Eye

"No," he sighs sadly. 

Permalink Eye

"I think of yellows as having plenty of money but I guess that doesn't help when it comes to credits."

Permalink Eye

"Yeah, what matters with credits is how much money you have relative to your caste."

Permalink Eye

"What do you do, Peshak?"

Permalink Eye

"Oh, I do the accounts for a pharmacy."

Permalink Eye

"Gotta be honest with you, sounds pretty dull."

Permalink Eye

"It's not great, but it pays well enough, and when there's downtime my boss doesn't get on my case about playing silly everything games."

Permalink Eye

"Aww, that's good then! I'm lucky I can afford formula."

Permalink Eye

"Are things that tight?"

Permalink Eye

"Less than they used to be but I was in the army for a few weeks right after she was born making ends meet."

Permalink Eye

"--Oh wow. I'm sorry to hear that." He looks down at the baby. "I guess that's why you need formula, too, huh."

Permalink Eye

"Yup, that's why."

Permalink Eye

"Aww." He gently starts to rock Katin. "There's hormones for that, but I guess if formula's a strain on your budget you wouldn't really be able to afford them..."

Permalink Eye

"I'm not sure there even are any in there," she aims a thumb back over her shoulder, "and I wouldn't know how to get them, but even if I did they'd cost money, yeah."

Permalink Eye

He gives the district a brief, uneasy look. "I mean, you can leave."

Permalink Eye

"I can walk out, but I still grew up there. It's all confusing out here. And expensive."

Permalink Eye

"It's confusing? What's confusing about it?"

Permalink Eye

"It's just so different! I watch TV, but TV can't tell you everything."

Permalink Eye

He looks dubiously into the red district. "I guess..."

Permalink Eye

"Where were you on your way to?"

Permalink Eye

"I was just going home after work. I didn't have anywhere I specifically needed to be. ...Do you want to go somewhere?"

Permalink Eye

"I'd love to. There's so many places I've never been."

Permalink Eye

He smiles at her. "Anywhere in particular?"

Permalink Eye

"Let's go sing karaoke!"

Permalink Eye

"Okay! Do you need to pick up any baby supplies first?"

Permalink Eye

"I should go grab extra diapers, I'll be right back. Fresh out of the bag, promise."

Permalink Eye

He nods. 

Permalink Eye

She takes Katin back, and runs and gets diapers out of the pack and a packet of formula mix in case Katin gets hungry again.

Permalink Eye

The yellow is still waiting by the exit to the red district when she gets back. 

Permalink Eye

"Hello again! Do you know a good place for karaoke?"

Permalink Eye

"Yep! Do you want the one with the wider selection of songs or the one with the better snacks?"

Permalink Eye

"Snacks! Maybe selection will matter more when I've been to karaoke more than never."

Permalink Eye

He grins and starts leading her towards a train station. 

Permalink Eye

And she traipses along after him, Katin dozing on her shoulder, down the street in broad daylight stark naked with pink hair fluttering after her.

Permalink Eye

Absolutely no one objects to the nudity or the hair, even when they get to the train station, which is crowded enough to make it hard not to bump into anyone. 

Permalink Eye

Eeeeheehee this is a very cheerful bouncy pink following Peshak to karaoke.

Permalink Eye

Embracing the full natural beauty of your new caste has caused your BOD to go up by 1!

Permalink Eye

Kickass!!!
