Stage 152: Dates, Drama, Delicacies.You are lying in bed, and your wife – well, wife to be, anyways – is telling you that she's not going to tell you her plans. “It's a surprise, Ryu-chan, and I'm not going to spoil it for you.” You turn your head in her general direction, which would be behind you, as you are both in bed and one of you – you – is naked. She is pressed against your back, spooning against you with those soft booms and her warm, sleek tail curled over your waist and around her sister's waist as well. Kiku-chan is curled up against your belly, sleeping peacefully and deeply after she and her master demonstrated that you are still ignorant and young where sex is concerned. You do have lovemaking down pretty pat though, by their reactions.“I think I would rather be spoiled than not be aware of what you are up to, Hime-chan. You're not safe yet, and probably won't be until Japan is wrecked.” She makes an affirmative noise. “What, you're agreeing with me?”“Well, yes, but Akari and Yui and Shoko are helping me, and Akari is kind of an expert too, you know.” She's not wrong, but still. “Anyways, this is important to me for a lot of reasons, not just because it's putting me in the public eye again. That's....” She makes a thoughtful humming noise and her sister stirs, the slender fire dragonette's tail sliding over your hips and slip between you and Kiki-hime. “That's important, but it's not as important as demonstrating I'm not afraid, and that I am still in control of my destiny, even if I'm not really.”You stroke Kiku-chan's hair and she settles into a deeper sleep. “That doesn't quite cut it. And it's not the entire truth either.”“Well, no it isn't, but I really don't want to spoil this for you, otousan. It's not just me that this is important to, and Akari said she's working very hard to make this event into something special as well as making it work for us.” She nuzzles the back of your neck and traces the mon of your element on your lest shoulder-blade, where it is forever imprinted. “I promise it will all be okay.” I can accept that, I suppose.... So I need to talk to Akari instead? You can't make a promise that you can't keep, kasan. Beloved, you have to understand my position here....you have worked with bodyguards before! The more you fight me on this, the more likely I am to veto it, you know?

>>1342080>[x] You can't make a promise that you can't keep, kasan.>[x] Beloved, you have to understand my position here....you have worked with bodyguards before!

>>1342080>[x] So I need to talk to Akari instead?>[x] You can't make a promise that you can't keep, kasan.>[x] Beloved, you have to understand my position here....you have worked with bodyguards before!>Reflect on our own relationship to promises, and that she needs to speak to intent and effort instead of guaranteeing the ends.
also would like to point out she can totally make promises she cant keep. its us if the promise curse/blessing
>>1342107The safety of our family is the one thing Ryukusa will never stop worring about.>>1342112It isn't that, the problem is that the promise "it will all be okay" is something she can't control if there is the least chance that our enemies could attack us during whatever she has planned.
>>1342080> I can accept that, I suppose....Don't worryBe happy
Hi XS! How are you?>>1342080> I can accept that, I suppose....> You can't make a promise that you can't keep, kasan.>Just make sure you contact me if something goes wrong, alright?>>1342083>>1342093>>1342110>All those people voting to be jerksWhoa, people. This is Ryukuza Quest, not Controlling Asshole Who Goes Above Her Wife's Head Quest.
>>1342115>The safety of our family is the one thing Ryukusa will never stop worring about.I 100% agree but we also need to be trusting of our family, worrying about your kids safe is good but never letting them out of the house cause something could happen even if others are trying their best to keep them safe is not a good parent in my eye even if they are a loving parent.
>>1342122Eh, I'm willing to go with acceptance as well, just not on only this.
>>1342115There is controlling, and there is "I'll make Akari tell me, so don't think you can keep a secret."
As long as we coordinate with our family, I think it shouldn't be too big an issue. But we should impart our worries first.
Just think of it like that: if anything and anyone can go through Shoko, Akari, Yui, Yuuhi and Kiki before we manage to arrive, then they could also do it while we're here.
>>1342080>I can accept that>Or rather, I can accept this is happening and you're gonna stand your ground but I can't accept the premise that nothing bad could happen. That's just not how I'm made. I'll still try to be the best audience member I can though.
>>1342133Not to forget Rei and the Kitsune who are probably going to keep an eye on her too. And all the magic and prayers of protections our family has.
>>1342136could =/= willRyukusa is careful, not paranoid.
>>1342140Of course, anon! But there's been a pretty consistent line of threats lined up for a while now so I'd give it a greater than 50% chance of something to go wrong. Just perhaps not something they can't handle.
The point isn't "You can't do anything without my permission", it is "Please give me some details so I can help ensure that nothing goes wrong." Ryukusa has water dragon mindset, she is gonna worry when she can't plan around something.
>>1342080Adding to my vote here:>>1342122>"I truly appreciate what you're doing, and I can see it counts a lot for you, but our enemies keep attacking us even in the places I think are safe. So, please, make sure that at least one of the niji has her eyes on you at all time. Though it's not a view they'll be displeased by, in my opinion."
>>1342151Yeah but do you really think we'll have no enemies forever even after we win? As much as she might want to on an instinctive level, Ryukusa can't spend eternity coiled protectively over her hoard of loved ones, so learning to let go at least a bit is crucial. Sure this kind of seems like starting at the deep end, bit that might be because we haven't really noticed the steps leading up to it.
>>1342151Saying "I'm going to ask Akari" is pretty much "you cant do anything without my permission".Because Akari will tell us, no matter how agonizing betraying Kiki's trust would be. So not only we'd be a jerk to Kiki, we'd hurt Akari pretty bad.
>>1342161Eh, it's not really the deep end, it's just that as a Water Dragonette, Ryukusa has a need to know the unknown, and has a Protector, not knowing how she can help in case there is danger is pretty damning for her.But Ryukusa is more than just tendencies.
>>1342163I see it as more of a "do I have to go over your head? give me something to work with here" Actually going through with it would be kinda dick. Given the rest of the thread conversation, I especially doubt it'd come to that.
>>1342171It's still a dick thing to suggest, especially since it also means not trusting Akari to find some way of telling us if she thought this was a bad idea.
>>1342163Talking to Akari has nothing to do with whether or not we let Kiki do this or not. I want to let dot his, and I don't want Ryukusa to call it off. But I can't see Ryukusa just sitting by. She wants to help, so that whatever Kiki has planned happens in the best possible and isn't interrupted or disturbed. And she can't do that with no infomation.
>>1342183*I want to let her do thisFuck spelling
>>1342183Unless Ryukusa being surprised is part of the point for some reason, as well as learning to accept that we won't always be able to micromanage things but that's okay since we have accumulated a very skilled family
>>1342171>>1342183Going above Kiki's head is not letting her do it.She's asking us to let it go. We can trust our people to take all the precautions they can. Ryukusa can make the concession of not knowing, this time.
>>1342188Fffiiiiiiiine.Boss, drop the first entry from >>1342110
Think about it like that:If Ryukusa had to go outside of the city on her own for one full day, she would trust her family to protect each others, yes?Then why would she not trust them when she's closer than this, and on a date?
[XXX] You can't make a promise that you can't keep, kasan.[XX] Beloved, you have to understand my position here....you have worked with bodyguards before![X] So I need to talk to Akari instead?[X] I can accept that, I suppose....[+] I'm not going to freak out here, you know.[+] It's less about the what you are doing than it is about the logistics and venue, you know.[+] Just make sure that someone can contact me in some way, many ways if possible.“That's not something you can really promise me, Hime-chan,” you explain quietly, your tail sliding along her thigh and up her back, the vanes caressing her silk kimono gently as you reassure her that you aren't upset or angry by her refusals. “I have not given up the title of shinobi yet, because if everything could be okay, I wouldn't need to be worried. Even with the power I've gained and the skills I have, it has been very, very close more than once.” You lay your left hand on her him, and you can feel the blood rush to her cheeks, the gentle reminder shameful to her.Kissing the top of Kiku-chan's head you turn over, sliding your tail away from Kiki-hime and wrapping it around the sleeping Kiku-chan, as she curls into a fetal position with your tail surrounding her. You take Kiki-hime's hands gently in yours and kiss the delicate knuckles lightly, your eyes half closed. “This isn't about ruining your surprises or keeping you from being you. This is about keeping you safe from people who have done anything to get their hands on you, and others who would happily kill you to get to me or Akari. It's not about why or what, but how, when, and where. It is about being able to control things around you while not controlling you. This is what bodyguards do, Kiki-hime. And first and foremost, even above being your husband and lover, I am your bodyguard....for now.” She looks at you with tearful eyes, the sky blue of them shining softly in the darkness.
>>1342200“....I....” she struggles, her emotions running high now. You patiently wait, and rub your cheek against her soft, delicate hands. Noble's hands, soft from a lack of work. Well, that and total regeneration, of course. “I don't like it, Ryu-chan,” she murmurs softly.“I know, but it is what we have to do, for now.” She shakes her head and you look at her in confusion.“I mean, I don't like that it is so difficult for us to do something nice for you, something special like this.” You frown thoughtfully, not at her words, but at the truth in them. “I can understand that, I suppose. I could talk to Akari-niji-chan about this....” You take a deep breath. “....but I think I would rather trust you to be honest with them and me, and to be aware of how dangerous the world is for you right now.” Her heart rushes with elation, though she manages to keep a very stoic and serious expression. Not Water dragonette quality, perhaps, but good enough for any clan warrior to say they fooled someone. “But for kami's sake, and my sanity, please, Kiki-hime, make sure there are many ways to contact me....” A thought occurs to you. Give her the Five Ghost Chain. Give her The Daughter of my Centipede of Rain. Give her the Holy Jewel Necklace. Tell her to have Fuuta-chan make some charms for summoning you. Give her your ring, and take hers – yours has been with you for a very, very long time.
>>1342203>[x] Tell her to have Fuuta-chan make some charms for summoning you.>[x] Give her your ring, and take hers – yours has been with you for a very, very long time.I trust there is some functionality in that.
>>1342200>all those optionsThe XS has a hard life...>>1342203>[x] Give her the Holy Jewel Necklace.
>>1342203Oh right... that centipede youkai who became infused in our blade had an egg. I think I lost track of what happened to it.
>>1342203> Give her the Holy Jewel Necklace.> Tell her to have Fuuta-chan make some charms for summoning you.
>>1342212No wait that's just the translated name for it.
>>1342212>>1342219That's the sword's name. The centipede egg is currently in Kiku-chan's keeping.
Damn, I'm not sure what to do.>>1342212She's been our weapon for a long, long time.I'm hoping she's going to Ara Ara our sword.>>1342203> Give her the Holy Jewel Necklace.>Make a prayer to the Kami Necklace, to protect Kiki and the others in your stead for a while
So wait, our ring also has a spirit by now?
>>1342233>Two hundred years in a Hell with you, every step of the way.
>>1342203> Give her the Five Ghost Chain.> Tell her to have Fuuta-chan make some charms for summoning you.
>>1342233We've worn it for more than 100 years, so yes.
>>1342203[x] Give her your ring, and take hers – yours has been with you for a very, very long time.[x] Tell her to have Fuuta-chan make some charms for summoning you.
>>1342203>[X] Give her the Five Ghost Chain.this would summon our sister to help her if something goes wrong?>>1342238we should check into it more in the future since it really should be a kami maybe.
>>1342203>Okay the five ghost chain still has some utility as a weapon I think, but its main purpose is communicating and summoning our sister but we only have a very limited amount of times to do it.>The sword is imbued with a powerful venom, and probably has additional properties I'm not remembering>I forget where we got the necklace, but it is supposed to protect against hostile magic which I think would be good considering Wood dragonettes are kind of weak against that stuff, but I think the necklace may have specifically been a gift for us?>Apparently this is something Ryukusa has seen Fuuta do before or at least has reason to believe Fuuta can do it, I also don't really remember if we have been summoned before>I feel like there is definitely some powerful symbolism (and thus magic) in doing this, but I'm not sure what.We also need to consider that even with Er Yin and Kiku, something bullshit could happen to us on our date which means we'll be without whatever protection it granted, but that's a minor thing.
>>1342248Presumably would summon, yeah
>>1342252>Correct.>It's an awakened kami, and has provided you with counsel and defeated some of your most dangerous enemies, and is a sister to the necklace.>The awakened kami that inhabits the necklce can make powerful Barriers, and necklace was a gift from Kiku-chan, to help protect Ryukusa from Hidesato's magic, and is almost a sister to the sword.>This is correct.>The ring journed through hell with you, and literally symbolises the fact that you will walk through hell to be with your loved ones again. It hasn't been used before because the kami is very specifically one of connection to others and obviously you're already connected to them yourself, so it hasn't any use for you personally....but given to someone else? That is another story.
>>1342252what i like about giving her the ghost chain is that our enemies would not expect a demigod poping out of it so if they try to get us away from kiki somehow it lets her be protected.
>>1342203add to >>1342248>[X] Give her your ring, and take hers – yours has been with you for a very, very long time.
>>1342256Did we ever ask Kiku-chan where she gained Matagama-no-Shitoki?
>>1342203add to >>1342217> Give her your ring, and take hers – yours has been with you for a very, very long time.
>>1342203> Give her your ring, and take hers – yours has been with you for a very, very long time.Well, seems as good a time as any to see what this will do.> Give her The Daughter of my Centipede of Rain.I feel like we need to be careful not to give Kiki too much, since it might get a bit overwhelming.
I wouldn't give the Centipede Blade to Kiki. As much as I love both of them as characters, Kiki is not one to use a shinobi blade yet, and Ame-no-Omukade-no-Musume-sama-chan would not be able to express herself fully with Kiki.
[X] Tell her to have Fuuta-chan make some charms for summoning you.[X] Give her your ring, and take hers – yours has been with you for a very, very long time.Gently takign her hand you carefully slip the ring off of her figner, must to her confusion. “I want you to ask Fuuta-chan to make you charms. Calling charms, for me, and perhaps for Jinyuu-onee-sama and Er yin-sensei as well, since they can do more from a distance than anyone else.” You carefully place her ring on your right hand, and she watches you with curiosity rather than confusion now.Slowly you work the ring you have worn for more than two hundred years off, concentrating very carefully on calm, soothing thoughts, silent prayers of tranquility and peace. It rests quietly, thank the Kami, and the Kamuy, and allows you to remove it gently. You kiss it, then kiss Kiki-hime's hand softly, and slowly – carefully! – place the ring on her left hand, replacing her wedding band, the gift she crafted from Akari's mask and blessed by Amaterasu-Omikami herself, upon her finger. “I meant to do this when we were wedded, but I can't think of a better time or reason.” You close your hand over hers and she smiles....until she sees the look on your face.Your gaze is dead serious, unblinking and you speak very slowly and clearly, just the way you would if you were giving her a gun. “I cannot stress how dangerous this kami is, kasan. It woke in hell, with prayers of hope and the desire to return home every day and every night feeding it. All my desire, all my will, everything I did was to get home to you, and the rest of our family.” She looks at the ring with newfound respect. “It isn't infernal jade, it is only two hundred years old....but it was made by your hands, after being the home of a god, and destroyed by the servant of a heaven, and then traveled through hell with my prayers and need feeding it every step of the way.”Respect turns to awe, and awe to a measure of fear. Good, that's what you want. “Think of this kami as a gun, Hime-chan. You are the star it is guided by, and if someone tries to harm you, or hurt you....” Taking her delicate hand in both of yours, you keep the tips of your pointer fingers touching it, making it aware that you are right here, with her, safe and home. One deep breath, lightly charged with your Chi and Shen, a soft wind from deep inside you.”Waken,” you whisper very, very softly.
>>1342308A fair point. On the other hand, we've got like, three magical swords already. Also we're caring for the mukades child, why shouldn't she help protect the mother of ours? And remember it's just a last ditch measure in case no one else can get to her, which is already quite improbable.
>>1342311The patterns and markings on the red jade shift and change twisting ominously and slowly. Kiki-hime watches in fascination as the kami stirs not truly awake, not fully aware, but stirring, feeling your power and her presence together. The dragons that decorate the ring are tiny...but the power that moves around Kiki-hime wakes everyone in the room up instantly. Even Kiku-chan.The kami slowly slips back into slumber, and you look at Kiki-hime seriously; she's a white a sheet and her heart is beating hummingbird fast in her chest. “I say that it is dangerous, kasan....but if the moment comes, and you need it....don't hesitate.. Wake it up.” She stares at you as though you've gone mad. “I mean it.” She nods slowly,awe returning to her expression, and her eyes wide and maybe a little bright. “What?”“You've been wearing...this....all this time?” Her voice is an awestruck whisper, and the others are gathering around.And she's making you blush. Well, okay, it's not THAT bad....um. Well, maybe it is, but still! Heh, you should have seen me when it first woke. ...on the other hand, perhaps not. Well, it's not quite as bad as Jinyuu telling me about mpreg.... Just be careful with it, Kiki-hime. It's old, and it's fragile, but it's still a true kami. ….I have a lot of things to keep me distracted....um, time for morning showers, yes.

was wondering if the shoes we wearied during our trip to hell are also now kamis? since they brought us back to the family.
>>1342339Haha, good thinking anon.Personally I'm holding out for some kami undergarments!
>>1342346I somehow doubt any article of clothing could endure 200 years of hell.
>>1342349we awoke in our clothing though back in the real world. but guess your right.
>>1342313>"Yes." Go take this shower before you burst up in flame like Kiku.
>>1342313>but it was made by your hands, after being the home of a god, and destroyed by the servant of a heavenHelp me out with my addled mind here, what do these few bits refer to? I don't remember a damn thing about any ring previous to today.
>>1342367well the jade comes from Akari's old mask that was home to the god of the onis then Kiki shaped what was left of the jade after it got destroyed into rings then we got sent to hell for 200 year and in that 200 years it got a new Kami in it.
>>1342374Oh right, for some reason I forgot that we had a portion of the mask. Thanks.
[XXX] Just be careful with it, Kiki-hime. It's old, and it's fragile, but it's still a true kami.[XX] ….I have a lot of things to keep me distracted....um, time for morning showers, yes.[X] Well, it's not quite as bad as Jinyuu telling me about mpreg....[X] Well, okay, it's not THAT bad....um. Well, maybe it is, but still![+] It's not quite so dangerous for me to wear, now that I am home....[+] Stop embarrassing me!You don't hide the blush, but it is dark; Kiku-chan is most likely the only person who can see your cheeks darkening. “It is very old and fragile, Kiki-hime, so be careful with it. But it is also a true kami, and should be treated with respect....” Her smile and the smile of several others in your family make you blush hotter. “I should get a shower, Kiki-hime....please excuse me....”“Bakayaro! How could you keep something like that a secret! If someone had tried to take it off....!” Kiku-chan's irate voice is piercing and intense, but it's a valid concern.“I wasn't too worried about that, since I was home, and I had a lot of things to keep me distracted you know! Besides, it';s not nearly as bad as Jinyuu-onee-sama telling me about boys who have as much Jing as I do....” Kiku-chan looks dubious, Yui sneaks a little closer. Kiki-hime looks at you archly. “Oh really? And what did she say about boys that have as much Jing as you do?”That earns her a flat stare and a little sarcasm. “Really, Kiki-hime, you're going to share me with all these girls, and it's the mention of a boy that makes you jealous? When have I EVER shown interest in boys?”“When you write those fanfics,” suggests Yui, as she walks into the room.There are not enough fuckin' facepalms, seriously. Kiki-hime dissolves into giggles and Kiku-chan gives you a stoic expression. “Hey, ever since Jinyuu-onee-sama said boys with too much Jing can get other boys pregnant, the stories just wrote themselves, okay!?” Yui blinks and looks at Kiku-chan, who nods solemnly. “And that is so much worse than....well, okay, no it isn't, but give me a break, huh!?” You sigh and pull your hair back, tying it in a simple series of knots. “Besides, if I am the one wearing it, and I know I'm home, it's not as....volatile. Or easily disturbed. As long as Kiki-hime has some of us nearby, it will be fine. Ad if she doesn't, then it's perfectly all right for the ring to wake up and do what should be done.”
>>1342418Yui starts to ask something but you shoot her a glance and shake your head ever so slightly, forming an image for her in your mind that the Void shows her. She looks a little ill and shakes her head. “Er Yin and Jinyuu-onee-sama say breakfast will be ready soon.”You rise slowly. “I definitely need the shower right away.” Kiku-chan nods rapidly and you reach over and gently grip her horn. “You should talk, bitsy dragon.” Kiki-hime is giggles manically once more and Yui perks up. “No, just showering!” Your cheeks heat up again. “I'm....ah, not ready for that just yet!” You give the miniature dragonette a firm shake and she gasps, shivering. “Ask her!”There is more laughter and you mollify the annoyed Fire dragonette with kisses, and join the others in the large bath.A short while later, after a great deal of laughing, splashing, back-scrubbing and front-scrubbing, breakfast is served. The table has been lengthened to accommodate the guests and allies you've gathered, as well as your family, and once more Kiki-hime proves to be a superb hostess, guiding conversation and keeping everyone occupied between courses and bites. Kaga Kei is subdued, and after breakfast you carefully and casually single her out, taking her apart from the main group of your loved ones and family.Before you can say anything, she speaks up. “Ryukusa-sama, I am truly sorry. I didn't realize how much the nekomata meant to your family.”You give her a considered look. “You realize that Yui-niji-chan is incapable of exaggeration, don't you?”She looks confused. Yui-chan isn't like other oni-children.... Just what I said – she can't exaggerate, lie, or mislead you. It is really fortunate you tried to use your magic on Rie, and even more so: she was merciful. Please don't concern yourself – we were all very lucky, and I think you learned better. Point out Kiku-chan's 'condition'....

>>1342423> Just what I said – she can't exaggerate, lie, or mislead you.>I appreciate you wanting to apologize, but it is not *I* that you have wronged by your action. I'd advise caution if you want to do it soon, though.>If I may ask, why did you do it at all? Even if the nekomata you tried that on had been less close to my family, we still had invited her in and asked someone important to help her.
Clothes vote soon.
>>1342464Wherein we can't decide between three amazing things, and XS is forced to make some miraculous fusion out of them.
>>1342423I forget, is the reason Yui was like that because she was raised amongst Oni instead of amongst humans, or is it because she was raised amongst Oni and also severely mistreated?
>>1342486Yui is Yui, her upbringing is not the only factor.
[XXX] Just what I said – she can't exaggerate, lie, or mislead you.[X] It is really fortunate you tried to use your magic on Rie, and even more so: she was merciful.[+] What in heaven possessed you to try that?[+] If you plan on apologizing to the wronged party, be careful.You look over at Yui, who now towers over an amused Akari – she's taller than Er Yin now, and is once again looking softer, though that is entirely deceptive. Everyone else has noticed, though Kiku-chan doesn't care and Er yin can't tell by sight. Only Shoko is taller than she is, and Akari is mostly amused by the fact that once again, Yui-chan hasn't noticed that she's grown at all.Which is kind of nice, really.“Yui-niji-chan can't lie. Or mislead, or exaggerate. She can omit things, but that's as close to a lie as she can come.” Kaga Kei hasn't quite grasped what you are trying to say, and you can't say that you blame her. “It is incredibly lucky that you tried to use your magic on Rie, rather than anyone else.”Kei-san shakes her head, not quite following. You look at her seriously. “If you had tried it on anyone but Rie-sama, chances are good that I would have stepped in front of Kiki-hime to take any effects in her stead, and Akari-niji-chan would have killed you a heartbeat later. If you had tried it on Kiki-hime, you simply wouldn't have had the heartbeat's grace, and just been dead, probably from multiple directions.” The first sentence is met with doubt, the second worry.“But she was a youkai....”“Yes, one that had been invited into my home, and been graced with the help of the kami to be returned to her true state of existence. I can't even imagine why in heaven you would have done such a thing; I realize you were trained, or convinced, to fight youkai. But that wasn't a little cat youkai, but a God's Eye Nekomata. A merciful one, fortunately for you.”She hesitates and then cautiously asks, “I don't understand....she's a household god here?”
>>1342533“I thought that would have been fairly common in Hokkaido, Kei-sama.” You consider. “If you plan on apologizing to her directly, since she's the one you caused trouble....mnh. Tried to cause trouble to, really. Anyways, you may want to wait a while. She's not....typical, any more than Yui-niji-chan is.” Kaga Kei looks baffled. “She'll remember you, and remember what you tried to do, and understand what it was meant for. She isn't an ignorant youkai now, she's a guardian spirit. Bear that in mind if you decide to talk to her, or meet her by accident.”The rather shaken young woman nods slowly and is quickly appropriate by Kiki-hime for tea and some kind of discussion you probably aren't meant to hear. Which is fine – you have work to do.Part of the issue with dressing for Er Yin is that colors and styles mean less than textures and sounds. Style might matter when she is touching you, but even then it's a matter of textures and fabrics and cuts thereof. So with that in mind, you lay out some slightly different parameters for your outfit. Silks qipao with rich embroidery, Chinese elegance! Satin and linen pantsuit, with smooth metals! Sleek leather jacket, soft chamois blouse, tight denim pants, studs and rhinestones! Tight latex and slick PVC, haute couture! Satin and silk and woven fabrics; old Japan style!
>>1342486Yui is weird. Even by Ryukusa's broad (very broad) standards.
>>1342536> Silks qipao with rich embroidery, Chinese elegance!Gotta resist my urge to choose all of them,
>To Be Continued....I am afraid I have to leave you here, for the time being. so, I will count the votes and we will pick up in the new thread tomorrow morning at 10:00 am PST, with dressing and preparing for the Date, and the Date proper with a few side tracks, of course. Thank you for reading and playing....
>>1342536> Silks qipao with rich embroidery, Chinese elegance!Why are chinese dresses so great?
>>1342536> Sleek leather jacket, soft chamois blouse, tight denim pants, studs and rhinestones!I like this idea, since it has a lot of nice textures as well as this date serving as a good way to introduce her to the modern world
>>1342549Thigh slits and variable lengths. Especially too short lengths.Unf.
>>1342548thanks for running XS
>>1342536I like the sound of satin and metal, but I'm not sold on pantsuits.I'll probably have to go with >[x] Silks qipao with rich embroidery, Chinese elegance!instead. Softness and texture. Maybe metal can be worked in? For that metal affinity, if that's really a thing to her.
>>1342548Thanks for running XS. Was great. As always I continue to be impressed by your ability to take our myriad of sometimes conflicting ideas and make them into a cohesive narrative
>>1342536> Sleek leather jacket, soft chamois blouse, tight denim pants, studs and rhinestones!
>>1342536>[X] Sleek leather jacket, soft chamois blouse, tight denim pants, studs and rhinestones!>Lots of different textures.
>>1342548Thanks for running!
>>1342560Narratively, it works because our protagonist is a genius. More practically, it works because our QM is goddamn brilliant.
>>1342560It truly is amazing how good she is at it.
>>1342548Short run eh? Thanks for running!>>1342536Fuuuuuuck I can't decide between the qipao and the sleek jacket...I'll take a time-out for a bit then since we're breaking for the day anyway.
>>1342536>[x] Silks qipao with rich embroidery, Chinese elegance!
>>1342548thanks for running!
>>1342536> Tight latex and slick PVC, haute couture!Let's make Er Yin get a taste of the new. This should be one of the principal part.> Silks qipao with rich embroidery, Chinese elegance!But also let there be a bit of the old, and of the familiar.>>1342565I have to agree. >>1342546>>1342549>>1342557Oh, come on, guys, we're trying to show Er Yin the modern world, too.Latex and PVC should be integrated, too. They're sexy, have textures that Er Yin can discover (notably by touching us) and it'll be great to tease Kiku with, too.It'd be a shame to take a dominatrix on her first date in the mordern world and not have a bit of latex or rubber for her to enjoy.
>>1342560>>1342565>>1342566Thank you for the compliments.you are all welcome though, and I appreciate your sticking with me for the tale. I am shorter on sleep than usual. I've been up 24 hours as of ten minutes from now.
>>1342577Plus we can't make her outfit *only* be in honor to her roots, since we're a) trying to show her forward and b) also not entirely subservient to her
>>1342577Calling on a little ancient history....My mistress took me out on the town. I was wearing t-shirt, jeans, jeans jacket. She, however, was wearing a very sleek satin dress and some very sharp edged jewelry....but ultratight translucent latex boyshorts and sports bra under the very slinky dress.Talc tastes terrible, incidentally.
>>1342586Truly the main thing holding latex back is the general awfulness of talc.Doesn't help that anything powdery is anathema to me. I even refuse to bake because euuuuuugh touching flour feels like fucking dying.
So I googled "chamois blouse", and after a few pictures this chamois top pic came up.Think it would fit Ryukusa?
>>1342627Considering she'd add a leather jackets, spikes and jewelry, I mean.
>>1342627Would anything NOT fit Ryukusa?Think it would be fine.
>>1342423 Tight latex and slick PVC, haute couture!
>>1342631Fit the impression she wants to give, then.Seems I'm the only one who want latex and PVC to be included.
>>1342640Spoke too fast.
>>1342644There are different styles and way to use it, but I'm sure Ryukusa would do something amazing with that matter, and look incredible in it,
It's not forbidden to post real-life pics on this board, right?Just to be sure.Getting banned for this would suck.
>>1342657I never heard about PVC clothing before today, but sure I'm down with it.>>1342661Just needs to be worksafe, mate
>>1342536>[x] Silks qipao with rich embroidery, Chinese elegance!On reflection I suppose I can support this, with a dash of>[x] Tight latex and slick PVC, haute couture!
>>1342666>I never heard about PVC clothing before today, but sure I'm down with it.Then vote like the wind, internet goer, vote like the wind.>Just needs to be worksafe, mateI'm kind of out-of-touch with what is considered worksafe, nowadays.
>>1342710Well I'm ok with it, but I already voted for and still prefer the qipao. Chinese style, smooth material and a complex tactile element.
>>1342710>I'm kind of out-of-touch with what is considered worksafe, nowadays.On 4chan? No exposed nips/genitals.
>>1342721I'm not insisting, it's a pretty fair point (chinese clothing are pretty great) but just pointing out for latter that XS generally let you change your vote or add things to it afterward, as long as the vote is ongoing. Sorry if you already knew and I misunderstood what you said.>>1342729Thanks.
>>1342774I got what you intended. I'm well familiar with XS's flexibility, and it's one of the things that keeps me coming back.
>>1342418Could Ryukuza get a boy preggers?
>>1344334Nope. That's one of the caseswhere biology>magic, but the child would be female.
>>1344357where would the baby gestate after a boy got another pregnant?
>>1344366I'd imagine giving birth would be like passing the worst kidney stone ever.
>>1344467please do not put the mental image of passing a baby through my dick please
>>1344366>>1344467Is gender-changing magic a thing? Because at that point that seems like a good idea if possible.Unless it doesn't really work due to like... Jing and Yin/Yang energy and stuff.
>>1342536adding to >>1342546While I still primarily want the qipao, I am also fine with mixing some of the things.In a way I suppose I'd be a little suprised if Ryukusa didn't... well, Ryukusa'd her outfit.
>>1344600Are you sure you want to know?think Zeus, actually, so it's not that bad, just a little bloody and surprising. Magic.
