Stage 94: Aftershocks.One of the nicer things about you being you is that sand doesn't get into those places where sand would be troublesome.This is a fairly important thing when you have been indulged on the beach by your best friend and the mother of your second child. Thoroughly warmed, much rested, and feeling far less like you've nearly died from exhaustion, you are lying on the sand again and looking up at the stars. Akari sleeps along your body, her head pillowed by your bosom, and as thoroughly exhausted as you could make her. You idly stroke her soft hair as you drowse.Once you were brought back from the brink, it was not so difficult. You've recovered a good portion of your Shen, at least half, and though you haven't slept, you feel better for having rested before and after the more pleasant parts of your peculiar rejuvenation. You suspect the immortality granted by the mermaid's flesh is helping, but it doesn't seem to help with this type of exhaustion as much as it does with physical injuries at all. Sex, sex helped a lot. Or maybe even just being with your loved one helped. You suspect that with more of your family nearby you'd recover much faster. That being the case, Akari needs to sleep more – her own battle left her tired, and you tired her out again, and it's not that close to dawn. With your strength renewed, making contact with your priestess is as easy as closing your eyes and 'speaking' to her.
>>42416955(Akari and I are all right, just tired from the overuse of Shen. Er Yin-sensei and Jinyuu-onee-chan are safe and sleeping soundly at our home.) The relief in Kiku-chan's mind is actually palpable; it feels like a warm down comforter that's been on a kotatsu for an hour. You know Kiki-hime, Yui-chan, and Inau-kun are asleep, but you ask anyways. (How is everyone else?)(Kiki-hime is worried, but sleeping finally. Yui-san and Inau-san are sleeping as well. Yuuhi-san and I are keeping watch. We're at the Pearl Farm on the island; Yui-chan used a cloud to get us here, and she also disabled the alarms for the time being.) Her mental 'voice' is calm and collected, and she seems balanced, for now. (Yuuhi-san claims there is no pursuit within miles, and I think she can be trusted on this.) Have her stay there, you'll join them in an few hours.  Tell her to stay there until morning, and then take the train – you'll meet them on it. Move them to the mainland and head towards home, you'll meet them. Double check on how she's feeling, it might be worthwhile to see what she says. Ask her what the ramifications are for a sorceress turning into a youkai.

If I recall correctly, a Sorceress could leech on a deity or other powerful entity, and combined with Melinda's ever-consumming nature, it could be pretty deadly.Melinda's still the cutest abomination we know, though.
>>42417306I'm sure Rie can scare her straight!Well, not literally straight. I hope. Not that it's super-important for us, but you know. It'd be nice.
>>42417325Given XS' previous comments concerning youkai sexuality, I don't think that straight or gay or anything else really matters that much.>Rie is 8” tall or 5' 5”, and is fully cat. Her sexuality is cat.
[XX] Double check on how she's feeling, it might be worthwhile to see what she says.[X] Ask her what the ramifications are for a sorceress turning into a youkai.[X] Have her stay there, you'll join them in an few hours. Several things pass through your m ind but you don't 'voice' any of them. You do focus on one that makes a difference. (How are you doing, Kiku-chan? Aside from being on an island.) You suspect she won't need any special attention for some time, but she is under a great deal of stress, given that she's in charge of Kiki-hime's safety. She takes no time to consider or think about it, or it could be simply that she thinks that much faster than you do. (Knowing my master is safe is reassuring, and there haven't been any conflicts or troubles from anyone. It is strange to be performing these duties again. I am not used to it but Yui-san and Inau-san make things much easier. Yuuhi-san....she is strange aniki.)(Stranger than usual?)Kiku-chan's amusement, mild though it is, makes you feel a little better. She's much too serious and angry, in your opinion. But it is Kiku-chan, so such things must be forgiven. (No, nothing different, just that she is strange. I think she is old, or perhaps just crazy.) There is a moment as she 'phrases' an inquiry of her own. (You are certain you are all right? I do not think it would take you this long to do what was needed.) Better she not know how bad it was.  Be honest but reassuring. Honest, but careful. She doesn't need stress right now. A little deflection might be a good ideas in this instance.  Everything really is okay now.
>>42417426> Honest, but careful. She doesn't need stress right now.
>>42417426>[x] Be honest but reassuring.>[x] Gently chastise grandmaloli for throwing rocks in glass houses.
>>42417426 Be honest but reassuring. Everything really is okay now.
>>42417426> Be honest but reassuring.> Honest, but careful. She doesn't need stress right now.> Everything really is okay now.The first two go fairly well together, and the latter is pretty accurate too! It was a little rough here and there, but everything's fine now or is it
>>42417426> Be honest but reassuring.Always honest. also...>Tell her we're better now that we know our family to be safe, and thank her.and of course>Tell her to prepare herself, because she's going to spend some ~fun~ time soon.
>>42417528Everything is always fine anon, because Ryukusa will protect her family.
"Reassuring" sounds better than "careful". The second means that we don't trust her to handle it.
>[x] Be honest but reassuring.>[x] Honest, but careful. She doesn't need stress right now.>[x] Everything really is okay now.
>>42417635Sounds more like careful is being gentle, and reassuring is more covering it with niceties.
>>42417504This, just because it uses the word grandmaloli.
>>42417845I'm sure Ryukusa would phrase it more diplomatically.
throwing rocks in a glasshouse? I'm not sure what it means in-context
>>42417889>Ryukusa>Not teasing Kiku to the fullest extentThe only way I can see it being done more diplomatically is if it's a means of being clever. Or maybe as a matryoshka of teasing where the more Kiku thinks about it, the more she gets flustered.
>>42417923Calling Yuuhi old when she's old too.Not AS old of course but still old.
>>42417942Seems more like a Pot/Kettle thing than Rocks/Glass.
>>42417964Pick your poison!
>>42418001I chose happiness
>>42418165That's wise, anon.
[X] Never lie to your family unless they give you permission. Also, she's being silly.(It didn't take that long, though it became somewhat frightening towards the end. It seems that it is possible to combine two different spirit-child bloodlines from different places, but the results aren't actually that much more powerful, only more versatile. Akari spent half of her Shen in Barrier Combat, but I spent most of mine after the fact and in the physical world, which was exhausting.) Her temper is cool, at least, and she seems to be considering your words carefully. (We're both resting after helping one another recuperate.)You can feel her hair waft like fire from the heat she generates in her embarrassment. (Hentai dragon!) (Well, it helps me recover! That's why I'm awake and she's sleeping. Besides, you would have known if things had become very bad, I think.) Her agreement is silent but sure. (I would like you all to stay there, in any case, and we'll rejoin you in a few hours. She needs to sleep more, and it won't hurt me to rest as well.) Also, Akari is really lovely to feel resting over you as she is. You stroke her hair and she turns her head sleepily. (Hai aniki. That will still be well before dawn.) Your last question, concerning sorceresses and youkai, disturbs her a bit. (It is unusual for sorcerers to become youkai, but not unheard of. More commonly they are punished by a kami, or struck by youkai, rather than living too long. But in some cases they can become youkai, usually if they delve into the darker magics or practice onmyōji-) Shikigami magic, possessing magic, if you remember your history. (-but it takes a careless of foolish sorcerer to go that far.)
>>42418381That makes you feel only a little better. More likely Melinda's nature is a result of her polluted bloodline than her using forbidden magic. She didn't seem possessed as much as she seemed unstable. (Well, Rie-sama seems to be taking that issue in hand,) which produces a deep revulsion and a mental shudder from your priestess, (So I think we won't have to worry about it. Thank you, Kiku-chan. Also, you shouldn't worry so much about me, when you have so many other things to concern yourself with. I will always tell you if things are wrong.)She relaxes quite a bit. (Hai, aniki. It is a good thing to do so.) (Also, you should get ready for a date. I want to take you and Er Yin on a date very soon.) Her mental stutter is a very odd experience. (Wear something nice for her.) That blush might have set something on fire. (Also, you need rest too, obaa-chan.) That bit of indignation undoubtedly has her eyes and throat glowing quite nicely. Being called 'auntie' is only fair if Yuuhi is an old woman. (I know you can stay up for a long time, but let Yui-niji-chan help you. You're not the only one who can tell when someone is being less than forthcoming of herself.) The contrite embarrassment is kind of thrilling to feel, in addition to being amusing. Maybe that's what Er Yin feels from her beautiful little gem all the time. (Gomennasai, aniki.)
>>42418394You reassure her that all is well, and break off the contact with a warm feeling of love and joy in her being. Her love – fiery, intense, and ever changing without lessening – makes you feel stronger despite the distance between you. Relaxing, you run your hands through Akari's hair and down her bare back, feeling the nubs of rounded jade along her spine. She makes a soft, happy, sleepy sound, and relaxes more deeply. Only a few minutes pass before you feel Yui-niji-chan wake, her presence fading from your mind like sakura blossoms in a soft breeze. It takes longer for Kiku-chan to fall asleep, but sleep she does, finally. Yes, you're definitely stronger for having been close in mind, if not in physical contact with Kiku-chan.  Ask Yui-niji-chan for her assessment of how things are going. Rest a little while longer; you really do need the healing time. Just send her your love and affection through the Void, nothing more. You can be patient. It sucks, but you totally can. Slip free of your best friend, and let her sleep. You need to do something.
>>42418408> Rest a little while longer; you really do need the healing time.> Just send her your love and affection through the Void, nothing more.
>>42418408> Just send her your love and affection through the Void, nothing more.> Ask Yui-niji-chan for her assessment of how things are going.>Once it's done, rest as much as possible in the given time
>>42418408> Just send her your love and affection through the Void, nothing more.
>>42418408>[x] Just send her your love and affection through the Void, nothing more.>[x] Rest a little while longer; you really do need the healing time.I worry having void chats as they are standing watch might distract poor yui.
>>42418408[x] Rest a little while longer; you really do need the healing time.[x] Just send her your love and affection through the Void, nothing more.
>>42418408>>42418435This seems like a good solution.
Unless I'm mistaken, both Water and Void are placed under Yang, right?Ryukusa needs to balance her Yin
>>42418616I'm sure her wives would be happy to balance her Jin, if you know what I mean.
>>42416955Haha, finally made it. I've spent about a year or so slowly reading thru the archives and finally finished in time for the next thread. XS, I'd just like to say you've had me hooked since thread 1 and I can't wait to see where this goes
>>42418743A whole year? I'm surprised you managed to catch up at all then!
[XX] Just send her your love and affection through the Void, nothing more.[X] Rest a little while longer; you really do need the healing time.As she wakes, you let her feel your awareness of her presence, not merely that of her sleeping self or the touch to the Void to her mind, but of her presence in your life. How she makes you happy, gives you strength, makes your best friend's life complete, how she completes you in doing so. You wrap her in your love, your well being, let yourself, for a brief moment, glory in her place in your life and what it means to you. Her response is nothing less than exultation; she revels in your attention, your love of her, as if she is a dragon basking in sunlight – or in the ocean, in your case, you suppose. Your joy is returned selflessly and fully, with no thought for herself but all thoughts of you and Akari: you her beloved savior and protector and keeper, Akari her soul-mate and other – not better – half. There is no room in her heart for the love she has for you; she breathes it, lives it, every atom of her body sustained by your presence in her life. All of this, in the space of a heartbeat.The contact fades quickly, and you wipe tears away, overwhelmed by the simplicity and intensity of Yui's love for you. In her case, if you were to die, there would be no pining, no sorrow, no pain. There would only be a fierce dedication to find you again, be it in Yomi, in a reincarnation, in a heaven or in a Hell....she would find you again, and be yours. Yui's love is a little frightening, as beautiful as it is.
>>42418803Hugging Akari closer, you waken her a little. She snuggles closer to you, murmuring sleepy nonsense words and reaching for your hand. You take hers, and try and calm yourself, slowing your heartbeat and trying to rest. It is hard, at first; Yui's love has left you giddy, your head filled with sparks and clouds, your heart beating hard. After some time you finally manage to calm yourself enough to doze. You don't let yourself fall completely asleep; you're not exactly decent in a stretch of beach along a well traveled coastline. Still, this early and this quiet it should be fine.  Let yourself semi-dream for a bit; see what's up in your head. Go over some plans and choices to be made. Meditate and let your Shen recover as quickly as possible. Sing a lullaby for your best friend to dream to. Try and use Void eyes to see how much Akari has recovered – it's safe to do so now.
>>42418818> Let yourself semi-dream for a bit; see what's up in your head.I wonder...
>>42418616>>42418767So we need to balance her Yang, which is bright, overt, male, active and aggressive, and associated with fire and the sun.Therefore, we need to take the lead during our date with Er Yin and Kiku, and also wear pants and a grossly incandescent top.My logic is flawless.
Awww...I really wanted to know what she thought of the situation, but this make everything perfect.
>>42418818[x] Sing a lullaby for your best friend to dream to.[x] Try and use Void eyes to see how much Akari has recovered – it's safe to do so now.
>>42418836>>42418616My mistake. It's:Metal/Void=Lesser YangWater=Greater YinWood=Lesser YinFire=Greater YangStone=Center.
>>42418836do you mean "incandescent" as "so indecent paper nearby catch fire"
>>42418818> Let yourself semi-dream for a bit; see what's up in your head.> Meditate and let your Shen recover as quickly as possible.Meditate into dreams, I suppose. Not sure how well that works though, so I'll favor dreaming if these conflict.
>>42418818> Meditate and let your Shen recover as quickly as possible.
>>42418818> Meditate and let your Shen recover as quickly as possible.> Sing a lullaby for your best friend to dream to.
>>42418818> Try and use Void eyes to see how much Akari has recovered – it's safe to do so now.
>>42418869I'm confused. Isn't Metal from the Chinese Wu Xing, while Void is from the Japanese five elements? Can they really be equated like that?
>>42418818 Sing a lullaby for your best friend to dream to Let yourself semi-dream for a bit; see what's up in your head.
>>42418818>[x] Let yourself semi-dream for a bit; see what's up in your head.>[x] Meditate and let your Shen recover as quickly as possible.
>>42418872Anon might not but that does sound appealing...
>>42418869So Ryukusa has been neglecting the lesser ones for the greater ones? Aren't they both imbalanced then?
>>42418938Indeed. As long as we make Er Yin feels it in detail.Though, I'm not sure what kind of date they'd like...
>>42418923>It's complicated, but yes, they are equivalent in many ways, though not completely so.
>>42419020She's mostly greater Yin and lesser Yang, meaning she's slightly unbalanced, but nothing special
>>42419059Ah, yeah that's right. Well, should be fine then.
>>42419112Honestly, I don't know what good or bad balance or lack thereof even does.
>>42419168Having excess Yin will probably make us more metaphorically 'cold'. We'll become more despondent and lethargic, and powers-wise, I'd guess we'd become weaker in the elements associated with Yang. Vice versa for an excess in Yang.Of course, since we've been developing both Water and Void, I'd guess this isn't likely to be too big a problem. I'm not sure if the imbalance in the elements themselves is a cause for concern. We probably aren't expected to develop them all equally, but just imagine Captain Planet without any Fire and Heart.
>>42419168Probably not terribly much. After all, a normal Water or Fire dragonette would be imbalanced hard, but nothing we've seen indicats that either group is plagued with problems because of it.Plus, it's not like the Elements are the only thing that would lean us one way or the other.
>>42419324>Having excess Yin will probably make us more metaphorically 'cold'. We'll become more despondent and lethargicThat doesn't really seem to make sense, since Water dragonettes are strongly predisposed towards Yin already, but their nature is anything BUT lethargic.If anything it seems like general activeness and excitability increase as you become more imbalanced in either direction, while a balanced individual grows more calm.Like a voltage difference, in a way.
>>42419366I think there's probably a difference between being naturally predisposed towards Yin or Yang and being imbalanced in it, just like how a human can be balanced in Yin and Yang, despite being male or female.I mean, Yin is supposed to be female in nature, but that doesn't mean the majority of Water and Wood spirit children are girls.Does it?I don't really know, I can't speak with any authority on this topic.
>>42419472Well, just about all the Water dragon-children we've run in to have been girls, as I recall. On the other hand all the Wood oni-children have been male.Now that I think about it, other that Yui and Shoko all the oni and oni-children we've met were male. Maybe they just don't have girls often.
>>42419366Water dragon-children are lethargic in the sense that they overthink things, and it prevent them from acting promptly. That's why they aren't associated with speed, like Fire dragon-children.You'd notice how easily foiled all the Water dragonettes we've met were (even our sister) as soon as we get them out of their comfort zone, that they carefuly planned with their dangerous, clever mind.Heck, even Ryukusa falls into that trap.
[X] Meditate and let your Shen recover as quickly as possible.[X] Let yourself semi-dream for a bit; see what's up in your head.Closing your eyes half-way, you let your mind drift for a short while. The momentary clearing of your thoughts paves the way for you to let yourself meditate, and that helps you rest and recover the spiritual essences of yourself. After a while you let the meditation lapse, allowing it to become a kind of dream-state. Not truly sleep, but not truly awake either, a sort of between point where the barriers between consciousness and sub-conscious are thinner. It doesn't take too terribly long for your mind to let you know there are a few issues below the surface. Nothing earth-shattering or terribly traumatic, no, but things you need to pay attention to at some point. One of the things that crops up almost immediately is a streak of guilt at not plying Yui-niji-chan with more attention. It isn't that you've been willfully neglecting her, it's simply that you have all been very busy and you needed her in capacities that she was best suited for, while yours took you elsewhere. Much of the guilt – which is not too terribly heavy, only mild and not paralyzing – stems from the fact that she'll of course forgive you and think nothing of it. You only have to recall her breathtaking feelings to know that for a fact. Still, it is something you think needs addressing.
>>42419583The date with Er Yin and Kiku, of course, is a swirl of wishes and hopes, not only your own. Er Yin wants to see the changes that have come with the past hundred-plus years, while Kiku wants to ensure that you and Er yin will be all right together. Her dedication to you and her need for a master (it occurs to you again that her age might be part of this problem, not simply a kink or a source of pleasure) should be in conflict, by her thinking. The lack of xenophobia you display is reassuring to her, of course, but this is more than a simple love triangle or slap-and-tickle session. This is her deity meeting her master, and forging a relationship. Despite her fears, you think that it will be less traumatic for her than she fears. Er Yin is gloriously interesting, and she is something you have a dearth of in your life – a woman who makes you feel feminine by her own nature.The drift of your dream crosses over into more tenuous territory. Kiki-hime is....different. Your relationship with her is complicated in a way that your relationships with the others are not. The bonds are there, and they are tight, but the love is fragile, something delicate and you feel like you are treading on eggshells with it. You can't pinpoint why, but you know there is more to it than simply not caring. Despite that, she is certain she can rise above this uncertainty, and prove to you she is worthy to be yours, and worthy to be with you. Your own doubts aren't always that clear cut....sometimes you're afraid of scaring her, and that makes things difficult. She is, in your mind, truly a princess: kept away from the world, and groomed to be something she had no choices in. Perhaps it's that the choice she made seems to you to be the only choice she had available. Your doubts and confusions are strong in this place.
Basically, Water dragonettes can think of 1003 ways things can go, but if you happen to use the 1004th, they're screwed.
>>42419601Yuuhi....cute and alien, scatterbrained and yet focused. Not much of an enigma, as much as a strange hiccup in the way your life is playing out. A samurai, yet a child; a mystic, yet an idiot. You want to know more about her, and you want her to be happy. Yet you really know so little about her. Even Water Eyes only shows you just enough to make her trustworthy and reliable. Her relationship with Shoko is at once controlling, yet subservient. Are all nogitsune so conflicted? You're beginning to think so. Inau and Shoko....both outsiders, yet both desperate to help in their own ways. Their lives are complicated by your needs, and they have set aside their own needs to serve yours. Inau-kun, confused as to her role in life, yet clearly dedicated to her nature to an extent so few ever are. Shoko, temperamental and blunt, yet fragile in some way. One has no guile, while the other can talk down insane spirit-children. Inau wishes to become part of your family, while Shoko seems to presume herself a part of it. There might be something there, some potential, in both of them. You wonder what it might take to bring it out. Jinyuu....your beloved elder sister, so brilliant yet tripping over her own mysticism. Not related by blood, but undoubtedly your elder sister. She is learning, accepting, growing past herself. You're proud that you could help her grow. You only hope you won't accidentally get her killed. It's possible....but then, she should know it ahead of time. Would she tell you? Of course not. What a tangled mess, you and she.
>>42419620Your eyes snap open as Akari pushes herself up onto her hands, looking down at you. You blink, her features perfectly visible despite the darkness. “You were muttering, Aniki.” Void Eyes hurt to open, but they do open, and you can see her Shen is nearly fully recovered. Better than you did the first time. You close them, and relax, looking at her with your sapphire dragon's eyes.  Thinking, niji-chan. How do you feel? ….would you mind if I stole Yui for a night? Going quietly crazy, that's all Akari. Nothing new. So where would you take Er Yin on a date? Why, Miss Hebiki! Underneath your clothes....you're NAKED!
>>42419645> Thinking, niji-chan. How do you feel?> Why, Miss Hebiki! Underneath your clothes....you're NAKED!She's wearing clothes? A grave mistake on our part.
>>42419684She isn't. Neither is Ryukusa, for that matter.
>>42419645> Thinking, niji-chan. How do you feel?> ….would you mind if I stole Yui for a night?
>>42419645[x] Going quietly crazy, that's all Akari. Nothing new.[x] Why, Miss Hebiki! Underneath your clothes....you're NAKED!

>>42419645I forgot to add to my vote >>42419831>kiss the girl on all the right places.
>>42419846Are there any wrong places?
>>42419894I think it's generally considered a faux pas in most circles to kiss someone on the back of their braincase. I concede that there's probably someone somewhere who's into that, though.
>>42419956>>42419967If anyone could do it it's Ryukusa. And I guess if anyone could take it, it's Akari.I concede these ideas are not too appealing though.
>>42419992Well, XS did write a surprisingly heart-warming story about a paladin and two changelings eating their tiefling companion
>>42419894Back of the knee maybe.
>>42420413I will be outraged if Ryukusa doesn't tongue-molest the back of Akari's knees anon.
>>42419967I have read that very doujin. It's probably the nicest, fluffiest snuff guro I've ever found.
>>42420498Is there a problem anon?
>>42420522I just don't know anymore
>>42420455Honestly the lung idea is growing on me.It's the logical conclusion of deep kissing.Inserting yourself deep into her untouched places, running your tongue over delicate bronchioles, feeling every little hitch and gasp and moan of pleasure directly from the source.The closeness of her speeding heartbeat, the thrum of the diaphragm as she near-hyperventilates, eyes becoming unfocused and lips tinging towards blue as you literally take her breath away.What the fuck am I typing. I need to lay down.
[X] Yes, you're that confused.[+] Beautiful, and transforming the old and keeping the new, oh, kisses, kisses are good.“Why, Hebiki-sama, underneath all of your clothing, you turn out to be naked!” You smile up at her, the dream-state scattering, but the memories remaining. “Frequently, yes,” she agrees, as she gently moves stray locks of your long hair from around your horns to their proper place behind them. “....now I am wondering what exactly you wear under your clothing that isn't your skin. But before I get too sidetracked with a mystery of that magnitude, I was thinking. Perhaps driving myself a little crazy, but that isn't especially new.” She shakes her head, agreeing with you. “Hey now. Be nice. Anyways....” You sit up slowly, and she crawls forward, straddling your legs as you wraps your arms about her waist. “The first thing is....how do you feel? Just because you weren't injured doesn't mean you didn't get hurt.” “I'm fine, aniki, really.” She runs her hands down your body, looking at the smooth flesh and smiling at the softness of your body. “I think it helped. I thought it would make me more tired.” You kiss her softly on the lips, lingering over the kiss, and she accepts it, receptive and open to you. When you both finally break the kiss, she's looking flushed, and feeling warmer against your skin. “No, I've found being near my family helps. No reason it shouldn't work the other way around in some measure.” Akari smiles, looking down, not shyly, as much as admiring. “I doubt that it can help with that. Maybe you need more milk.”
>>42420586This is pretty good new fetish found. Thanks anon.
>>42420604She giggles, the beautiful, melodic noise erupting from her lips, and unhindered by a hand. The sound makes you smile beatifically. “Ah, my beautiful niji-chan....would that we could spend all night here.” you kiss the hollow of her throat and she leans back, allowing you to lean her back. Allowing, because if she fought you, there would be no contest, even now. “but we have family to return to, and then more family after that to return to. Still....”Sliding your hands from front to her back, you lift her and look into her carnelian eyes. “Would you mind if I took Yui-niji-chan away for a day? Just she and I?” You blink. “Her and I? She, her, whichever. It's definitely me, though. Wait, that didn't make sense....” Akari's eyes are filled with love and amusement, and she shakes her head, not denying you, but denying your ridiculous behavior. “Do you truly need to ask, aniki?”You look at her seriously. “Yes, I do.” She looks surprised, and blinks at you in confusion. “Yui-niji-chan may be my oni, my demon, my servant, but she's your wife. She may not see herself having a choice or want a choice if I ask her....but you're her husband, and that makes hers yours to protect, just as Kiki-hime is mine. So....yes, I do have to ask. Because you are the freedom she has chosen for herself. Yui doesn't get to choose if I ask.” “....I really hadn't considered it that way, aniki. Of course you may. I imagine she has been looking forward to it for a while now.” You have your doubts that Yui even thinks of it in such a way. She'd wait forever for you. “I would be glad if you did, and I will be happy for you both.” Your Stone dragonette kisses you again and you embrace her, firmly. She sighs and melts into your arms.
>>42420627Humming happily as she relaxes against you, you stand up and wash yourself and her off with a mild and warm rain of oceanic waters, that from the black smokers mixed with that of the abyssal deeps. Akari revels in the warm rain, though she has never complained in the cold. “Er Yin would like to see the changes of the city on our date. She's older the Kiku-chan....”Akari glances at you slyly, a wicked little smile curling her lips. “Sightseeing?” That brings you up short. Of course it wouldn't be sightseeing in the traditional sense. It would be smell, sound, and vibration. The movement of people, the sounds of the past and the present, the scents and tastes of the modern and the old. “That's....a very good point. I think I know where to take her.” The temple districts – where the noise and people of the modern day give their prayers and wishes to the past where the traditional cooking mixes with the moder wares and styles. “You always know the best places to take the girls.” Akari sticks her tongue out at you. You'd swat her behind, but you don't want to break anything. Like your hand. Or your wrist. You think you might be good enough to avoid breaking your arm.Drying off is nearly instantaneous, and she dresses in her traditional schoolgirl uniform, as you decide what you'll be wearing....

Whoa. To be honnest, I thought about taking Er Yin through a city tour, but I was worrying it'll be too many new things at once. On the other hand, temple districts does blend the traditional and the modern in just the right way.>>42420649> Haute Couture; give your family something to marvel at!>Business Suit!

>>42420881We could do the office worker coming back home with the welcoming wife act.
>>42420936That's the idea. Although anon here >>42420832 does make a compelling argument that Ryukusa and cute would be nice. She's usually so.. sharp, for lack of a better term.

Ryukusa vs the Dovahkiin: who win?
[XXX] Casual Cute; no one but family will see tonight![XXXXX] Senpai Style; match your kohai's outfit![XX] Haute Couture; give your family something to marvel at![XX] Splendid Samurai; you're not home yet![+] Business Style.[++] Combined Senpai+Samurai.It doesn't take long to decide that you wnt this to be different. Both for your family, who are expecting a triumphant return, but also for yourself, because you're feeling kind of different yourself. Things in you have changed, things about you have changed, so why not do something changed? It doesn't make any sense but that hasn't stopped you yet. You pull several outfits out of ~Nowhere~ and hand them to a compliant if bemused Akari. It doesn't take long to shape the outfit, nor does it take any time at all (to anyone but you) to put it together. You don't bother asking how long it was; Akari's wide eyes and somewhat alarmed look tells you plenty about how quickly you're working. When you're done, you dress, and by the time you tap the toe of your boot against a rock to settle it in place, your niji-chan is staring at you with flushed cheeks and two points of prominent evidence that you've outdone yourself this time. You place one hand on your hip and cock your head slightly, smiling at her. “Adequate?”
>>42421492The thing about school uniforms is that most follow the seifuku style, which is loosely based on nautical uniforms. So naturally, another type of military style wouldn't go amiss, especially if you took it to the other side of that coin, which of course is the style that one would find in band. So the long sleeved, black, double breasted jacket with only four buttons (which frames your booms quite nicely); red trim on the breasting and epaulets, combined with piping on the sleeves. But rather than pants, you opted for a pleated skirt, also trimmed with a line of crimson just above the black hemline, which is just a touch higher than usual. That gives a nice band of your thigh above the opaque stockings (again, that single red stripe just below the black edging). With a red beret, and sharp ankle boots, you not only look classy, but the addition of a charm bracelet just outside the turned back cuffs gives you a little cuteness to the outfit helped out by glittering hoop earrings with Swarovski crystals in blues, violets and sapphire reflections. If this wasn't enough, you have both your swords strapped on: Ame-no-Omukade-no-Musume at your left hip, in a shiny ebony sheath; at your back, Yama-no-Musume-no-Okurimono, upside down for a long under-draw. If you were honest, the whole outfit looks a little Magical Girl combined with Kancolle, but what the hell, when it makes Akari nearly wet herself, it's fuckin' worth it. >To be Continued....
So, welcome to the new readers/players, thank everyone else for enjoying the show, and I'll clear up a little confusion about some things that were wondered about in this thread. Thank you for reading and playing.
>>42421563Thanks for running XS!
>>42421534So, a black Junketsu?
>>42421534Best Suit so far i think. Nice job combing them XS you are amazing at it and thanks for running.
Before everyone gets too caught up in Ryukusa's elemental balanceA spirit child's elemental balance is always natural to them. Even if there is growth or personal change in their essential elemental affinities, they will never unbaqlance themselves accidentally. Elemental imbalance or disruption can only happen through external forces acting on the spirit-child in question. So, you do not need to worry that Ryukusa will imbalance herself. Nor are her affinities with her lovers going to be a problem in that manner. Her lovers will remain balanced in themselves, except where illness is a concern. Yes, this lends credence to the idea that there is something wrong with Kiku-chan, but Ryukusa and Kiki-hime have both noticed this for some time. What that is is a matter for debate, and will probably have to be cleared up by Er Yin or Kiku-chan herself, or someone appropriately trained (such as Jinyuu or Yui).
>>42421563Thanks for running
>>42421534Sounds nice if very anime!Thanks for writing.
Thanks for the thread! I know I say it often, but it won't ever be enough: it was amazing!Now, to get someone to draw this outfit...
>>42421684So, while Ryukusa has concentrated her efforts on leanrign more Void techniques, this is not unusual for Demigods - in fact, the usual case is that demigods are potent in three elements at once, and very poor in two of them. This has no effect on their Chi generation or their health balance - health is always a balance of all five elements ~separate from the affinities the spirit-child has~. In other words, the working/power techniques have nothing to do with the health levels and balances, other than how much control one might have over them.Are there any other questions I can answer?
>>42421672>>42421773>>42421739Closer to Nono's outfit+Junketsu, really.
>>42421684I'm guessing that ultimately what Ryukusa needs to consider here is getting to know Yui, opening up to Kiki more, and figuring out Kiku's problems.>>42421739>very animeAnon, that's this quest.
>>42421878Really want yui POV could tell us more.
>>42421803How injured would Ryukusa be after a kiss to the back of Akari's knee? That Stone can be mighty inconvenient.
>>42421866Seems like i would have to draw it to see what it would look like.
>>42421970That's definitely a great idea, anon.
>>42421934Anon, if you think Ryukusa hasn't kissed any flexible place on Akari's body, you weren't paying attention to how exhausted the poor Stone dragonette was.
>>42421970....maybe if you beg nicely enough. It's been a long time since I drew something that exactingly detailed. Also, flatface is my undoing.
>>42422005Just to make sure the nono as in the school outfit in blood c right?
>>42422005Hmmm, but the reflex-squeeze...I guess Akari might have some mighty self-control.
>>42422028Clearly you can just draw it neck-down! Though I read it as anon drawing it. Not that I'd complain about multiple ones...
>>42422032....could be. I'll have to double check.
>>42422033Akari can pick up eggshells (as in empty of egg) nowadays. She has very good self control. Also, Ryukusa knows how to use leverage.
>>42421803Kiki and Ryukusa mentioned Akari would soon get something similar to Yui's "upgrade". Could you tell us more about it?
similar to the right side one, except with more buttons and style. Also, not half disintegrated.
>>42422094Not at this time other than to say she will be given an official title.
>>42422135It will be drawing it.
>My Chuuni Sempai Designed Our Class's Battle Uniform, But She's An Expert Seamstress?!?
>>42422184Waiting warmly anon!
>>42422184Thank you kindly. >>42422197It's not chuuni when she actually HAS the powers she claims to have, anon.
>>42422197Would watch. but it should be >My Chuuni Sempai is Has a Odd Sense of Style, But She Makes it Look Good?!?
>>42422231Give us a better adjective, senpai
>>42422301Majestic? Royal? Magnificent? Terrifying?
>>42422184Another semi-reference. Except classier, really.
>>42422445Yes, except reverse the skirt colors (to match more closely with Akari's, of course). With that, goodnight all. I hope to continue tomorrow morning.
>>42422550Have an excellent night, XS. And take care of yourself, the state's finding new ways to be on fire again.
