"I'm still feeling largesse-y. And kind of antsy but also tired. Might go shopping for stuff... After a nap. Maybe rune supplies or potion supplies."

Permalink

"Maybe you could rest your head in my lap while you nap, get all snugly wrapped up in my tails? I could study while you rest."

Permalink

"Oh, that sounds really comfy."

Permalink

It really does. ...Pillows will have to do.

Was that another Look from Bys? Maybe? Hard to say. Probably not, she can overmatch these patterns sometimes. Maybe she'll widen the casual swish of her tails a bit wider, to a potentially teasing angle, but that's conveniently deniable too, and innocent enough in any case.

"That sounds like a fun way to spend an afternoon then."

She reaches out and takes Lenora's hand with a smile.

The rest of the walk home can be made in peace. It's pleasantly gloomy and drizzling lightly in Scotia, but she doesn't mind.

"I'm gonna use the computer room, see ya later."

Permalink

Lenora sighs in relief and stretches repeatedly, not intending to show off but trying to get all the major tendons.

Permalink

Certainly has the result of showing off. Sable makes sure to grab her books from Bys's bag before her roommate heads off, and adds "visualizations were linked from the Mothergifts article on Witchipedia," as she goes.

And then she wraps her girlfriend up in a snug, tail-wrapping hug. "Where d'you wanna snuggle up, hon?"

Permalink

"Bed's softer, but couch is more convenient for you... Hmm..."

Permalink

"Bed lets me put the books I'm not studying at the moment on my desk, and couch isn't that much more convenient."

Permalink

"Oh right, Maid Hand. Bed it is."

She hugs Sable and nuzzles her neck.

Permalink

Sable savors the hug for a moment, nuzzling into Lenora as well, and then has an idea. Sure, she's shorter than last time, but so's Lenora, and she shouldn't be notably weaker than when the was full-size, and she could do this before — wait though, cartoon strength should Just Work™ as long it's something that makes narrative sense for her archetype? Fuck it, she's trying this.

She bends her knees, leans forward, and scoop! Up Lenora goes into a princess carry, while a Maid Hand takes the books and heads to her room ahead of them.

"Eep!"

"...Onwards fair steed, to the place of repose and restoration!"

Permalink

Sable giggles and carries Lenora upstairs. When they get into Sable's bedroom, volume one of Wibbly Wobbly is on the bed, while the other two books are on the desk. A few decorations seem to have come with her from her old place: a fanmade poster of June Egbert and Vriska Serket back to back with mad grins on their faces, a Re:Creators poster featuring Setsuna and Altair, and a little fountain sitting on her desk.

She sets Lenora down gently on the bet and kisses her sweetly.

Permalink

She leans up into the kiss, then back down with a deep yawn. "Falling asleep with you rubbing my ears will be like... You falling asleep while I brush your tails." She squirms a bit happily and pats the bed for Sable to sit. "Just so cuddly and nice."

Permalink

"Then that sounds like exactly what I'm aiming for."

She hops onto the bed, all the way to one side, and pulls a bedside table a bit closer, then sets the book, a notebook, and a pen on it. Then she bunches some pillows up behind her back and leans back against the wall, her tails all stretched out toward the other side of the bed. She pats her lap invitingly.

Permalink

Head goes flop, with the rest of her laying on the bed perpendicular to Sable. She yawns again and looks up slightly with a frown. Kicks off her shoes and lifts her legs up to peel off socks as well. Then flop again, eyes drifting shut.

"Thanks for being..." Vague handwave.

Permalink

"Always. Like you a lot, Lenora."

Tails wrap snugly around the girlfriend, one in easy reach to be hugged. One of Sable's hands scritches tenderly along the back of Lenora's ear.

Permalink

Hug the tail: Yes. She sighs happily and her breathing slowly evens out and slows.

Permalink

Sable sighs warmly as well, her scritching slowing down a bit, but continuing as Lenora falls asleep. Yeah, she really likes this girl. She spends a few minutes just savoring the cuddle, the affectionate contact giving her a bit of a mana refill herself (she did spend a little on some silliness and drama earlier), and then starts studying, taking careful and thorough notes on the mechanics of Portals, from the fundamental spatial curvature involved to the shape of the mana when opening an aperture, happily spending her time like that until Lenora wakes up.

Permalink

She kicks in her sleep a few times, shifting afterwards.

...She'll sleep for a while if nothing particularly interrupts, even in day clothes, er, robes, this is an astoundingly comfy spot to be in for some reason.

Permalink

After about three hours of delightfully cuddly studying, Sable decides to stop before her brain turns as wibbly-wobbly as the spacetime she's studying. She closes her books, stretches a bit, and gazes down happily at her girlfriend. This is pretty damn great.

She leans forward and pecks a gentle kiss to Lenora's cheek.

Permalink

Yaaaaaawn. She lifts her head and blinks blearily, then slowly shifts, tail unwinding from where it wrapped around one of Sable's tails. She hugs her hugged tail tighter, making a tired but happy noise.

"A nice way to wake up, instead of a blaring alarm. Oof, how long was I out?"

Permalink

She has a tiny happy shiver at the tighter tail hug, then pokes her phone. "Looks like it was about three hours?"

Permalink

"Oh wow, that's more than a little nap. Sorry, ehehe. I guess I was more tired than I thought."
