Info // Skills // High-Heeled Dancing

High-Heeled Dancing: Lvl 1 (0 / 3). Passive.

Add your High Heels + High-Heeled Dancing skill levels to your effective Dancing skill for any high-heeled submaneuver of a dance maneuver that involves your feet. This skill activates automatically unless deliberately suppressed.

The underlying mechanical reduction of all human activity these skills are balanced on top of is kind of weird but she will attempt a little shimmy of a dance to demonstrate that she does not fall over and see how the skill use feels.

Permalink

For one, her High-Heeled Walking skill is itself definitely at play somehow here, given that the default clumsiness she felt while walking is also not there, but it feels like... intuition? About how to balance her weight so that the thing she's trying to do just works, compensating for the wobbliness of the high heels.

He lets out an impressed whistle and claps.

Permalink

She takes a bow!

Permalink

"It must be pretty annoying, though, I understand high heels tend to be painful to walk on?"

Permalink

"They don't bother me! At least so far, I suppose it's possible that I didn't test this pair out long enough in the store."

Permalink

"Well, good luck with that. I, uh, should probably get back to work? It's thankfully a Friday so I should be able to be more, uh, helpful tomorrow, but yeah."

Permalink

"Mm-hm, I'm all set. Have a good rest of your workday."

Permalink

"Thanks!" And he holes himself in his bedroom with his laptop because Confidential.

If he winds up on a work call she is going to Eavesdrop because it seems relevant to the Dark Secret she has to learn, but apart from that she's going to poke around with Python some more, and, hm, her vague expectations about the world think there's porn on Tumblr, she should get a Tumblr and see if she likes any of it, it'll probably manage to be relevant.

Permalink

Boy oh boy does Tumblr have porn! Is there any specific porn she is looking for? Tumblr isn't very good for browsing exactly but it's not awful if she just wants to do that.

Permalink

She does not have anything specific she is looking for! She will wander randomly around the recommended content and click on the names of the posters or whoever they reblogged from if they have something that makes her make this face! Yep, she's definitely bisexual, that's good to have confirmed here. Huh, elf princess cosplay mostly removed over the course of four gifs, that's really nicely put together on several levels. That guy has a great smile. Fanfic of... wow, she's never read a book in her life, she is going to go pirate The Time-Traveler's Wife real quick and read that for context.

Looking for porn of your own initiative and finding stuff you like has given you +1 LST (terms and conditions apply, you have a perk, etc etc etc)!

Permalink

Thanks, Erogame!

By the time she has finished The Time-Traveler's Wife and posted a four paragraph review of it to her otherwise empty tumblr it is time to go make spaghetti for dinner.

While the water is coming to a boil she will see if Oliver happens to be Eavesdroppable.

Permalink

He does not seem to be eavesdroppable; she can barely hear the sound of him typing at his laptop and that's probably only because he does so kinda forcefully and quickly.

Permalink

Fair enough.

She puts together the spaghetti and plates him some and knocks on the office door.

Permalink

No answer. Given earlier, he's probably wearing his headset again.

Permalink

Well, in that case, she has a perfect excuse to open the door and sneak up on him.

Permalink

Yep, there he is, deeply engrossed in whatever he's doing and headset on.

Unfortunately for her sneaking prospects, however, his screens are extremely non-plotty: he has VSCode open on one screen and a terminal open on another and the stuff he is typing is literally numbers. There's some syntax highlighting, so to speak, and various notes, but they're not intensely helpful: add, addcp, multmv, swp, dupmv...

Permalink

Yeah that's not helpful at all.

Spaghetti plate goes on top of empty sandwich plate.

Permalink

He jumps again and locks his computer on instinct again then smiles up at her sheepishly. He really needs to develop some different habits around the existence of someone else in the house. Then he blinks a couple of times and looks at the time. "Oh. It's later than I expected."

Permalink

"Yeah, I knocked but you didn't answer." She ruffles his hair again and kinda leaves her hand on his head.

Permalink

...aaaah? He looks up at her, blinking owlishly and blushing a bit, not... exactly... sure... what... Is she flirting? Is that what flirting looks like? Aaah? What do? Halp?

Permalink

Aww he's cute.

She swoops in on him and kisses him.
