Stage 153: How the world works.You lay out Kiku's clothing on the bed carefully, and she blinks, staring at the elegant clothing. Er Yin cannot see it of of course, but then again she's sitting back in a heavy wood chair with minimal cushioning (and a missing section for her tail to be placed in) and relaxing after your mutually shared intimacies. As calm and relaxed as you feel, you can certainly see why Kiku-chan chose the lover and lifestyle she has. It's not something you could do 24-7, but once in a while, with the right person, it is lovely.“This is not what I was expecting,” she admits softly, as you arrange the outfit for ease of wear. “You made this?”You glance at her with a smile. “I made most of the clothing I put people in, Kiku-chan. When I don't make the clothing, I do make the outfit. It's like cooking. You have some ingredients that work better from scratch, and others that can be combined pre-made for a unique dish. Both are reflections on the cook as well as the ingredients.” She frowns, and gives you a fairly mild glare. “Hey, don't ask silly questions if you don't want a lecture!”She looks mildly abashed. “Gomen.” She runs her hand over the clean white satin as you take out some jewelry to add to it. “It is very beautiful.”You turn and kneel, and slowly draw the tank top up her slender form, baring her sleek and youthful body. Tracing the undersides of her small breasts lightly, you frown mildly. She's going to need help there. She allows you to do so, not body shy in the slightest – at least in this circumstance. The shorts are lost next, and you blinks at the panda bear decoration of her panties. Her hair floats in the rush of hot air and her eyes widen in a lethal glare. “Akari has that brand,” you comment as you work them off of her hips and her shock kills the heated glare instantly.Er Yin chuckles softly at her lover's confusion.Taking the silk fundoshi first, you quickly fold it into shape, the strange abstract symbols reminiscent of arcane magic or secret writings of another age (and many manga). You pull it up between her legs and fold, tuck, and tie it in place, making her squirm uncomfortably as you dress her. “This is tailored, so I may have to make adjustments to make it look perfect, so no, you can't dress yourself.” She shuts her mouth before the protest is even half formed. Give her bust a little emphasis. Something to give her hips a little emphasis. Work with what she has; she's just on the edge of boyish but lithe enough. See if you can't manage to give both hips and bust more prominence. Make up and jewelry will do what clothing cannot in this case!

>>1380777>[x] Something to give her hips a little emphasis.Oh boy, Ryukusa time!
>>1380802Ah right, I was referring to the curve enhancement.
>>1380777> See if you can't manage to give both hips and bust more prominence.
[x] Work with what she has; she's just on the edge of boyish but lithe enough.[X] See if you can't manage to give both hips and bust more prominence.[XX] Make up and jewelry will do what clothing cannot in this case!She glances down at you as you trace her sides slowly, your thumbs brushing her slight breasts and the delicate hollows of her hip bones. “How do you do that?” she asks curiously.“Do what?” you respond absently as you take out your sewing kit and make some last minute adjustments to the hips of the flared satin pants and add a little crimson to the gold. Not red, but crimson, the orange tint of it drawing the eyes away from her bright red hair.“Make the slightest caress sexually charged, and yet make this seem clinical and detached, aniki.” Sewing the tiny additions in is quick work and you glance at her mildly. She frowns at you, and you can't help but smile at the catlike expression, which is something you will never mention in your life. “What?!”“You're Ryo trained, Kiku-chan. Are you telling me you've forgotten that technique already?”“I am a being of Fire, aniki, I can't divorce myself from my emotions even if I wanted to, baka Water lizard!” She does have a point there.Setting the pants on the floor she steps into them for you without being prompted, and you draw them up. You have to work them over the edges of the fundoshi, but that's on purpose – her slender hips won't keep up such loose clothing by themselves. A belt will help, but you think something less belt and more decorous, that won't help keep the clothing up but will draw the eye to her hips and their movement. “I'm not just dressing you, I'm thinking of what will go where to make everything look fine, and how to emphasize some things and detract from others, while coordinating the colors of the outfit with your complexion, the makeup I'll be applying, and how much and where the jewelry will go, and also how to make your outfit match outs better.” She stares at you as you close your eyes, imagining her appearance as a human. That red toned brunette Ainu hair is so annoying.“Is it like that all the time for you, Ryukusa-sama?” Er Yin's question catches you a little off guard as you select a soft multi-material bandeau top in shimmering white and slide it over your priestess' arms and about her chest, adjusting it a little. You buy some time by adding a few abstracted symbols so it matches the fundoshi better.  It's actually worse, but I don't like thinking about it. Usually, yes, but it's not so bad. You should see me when I'm in a waiting room. Not....really? I don't usually think about it! What exactly do you mean, Er Yin?
>>1380830> Usually, yes, but it's not so bad.> You should see me when I'm in a waiting room.

>>1380830>[X] You should see me when I'm in a waiting room.
[XXX] You should see me when I'm in a waiting room.[XX] It's actually worse, but I don't like thinking about it.[X] What exactly do you mean, Er Yin?[+] Well, sometimes I'm naked!“Not really, I have casual clothing, and sometimes I'm even naked.” You think about that for a moment. “Not often, really, but occasionally at least.”Er Yin can't help but smile wryly while Kiku-chan rolls her eyes.You don't have to put a lot of thought into the answer to the question she meant to ask, really. “Why do you ask, Sensei? I can't be the first Water dragonette you've encountered like this....I mean, I don't want to bring up anything bad, but I would have thought that you've seen far more like me than just me. Ow.” Kiku brandishes the fan she swatted you with threateningly. Er Yin doesn't seem discomfited by the reminder. “Kiku.” Kiku looks mildly annoyed at her master but puts the fan away giving you an unhappy glare. “Those conversations tended to be short, Ryukusa-sama,” she explains. “I have seen very few Water dragonettes with such a....Fire temperament to them. You are unique in more than one way.”You wrap your hands about either side of Kiku-chan's chest, frowning mildly. Jewelry? That's probably your best route, but....more trim? No, not trim, decoration. Yes, something to suggest while not actually molding or shaping. Taking some more of the crimson silk, you add onto the blouse at chest level, and remove a little more from the throat – not a plunging neckline, but a nice V-neck with pretty gold trim. 'Look here.' Yes.“I always wondered if I was part Fire dragonette. It's supposed to be impossible....” You consider Akari, and her peculiarity. “But I suspect it wouldn't be as strange as say, Water and Stone existing in the same dragonette.” Kiku-chan looks at you like you are stupid, and you tap your finger on her nose. “It's not a joke.” Resuming work, you pull the blouse over her head and check the fitting, placing some pins in the sides near her breasts with extreme care. “Don't move. Anyways, it's actually a lot worse than that, but it's not something I like talking or thinking about. It was probably why they kept me drugged with aconite all the time. I absolutely abhor waiting rooms. Cooking is bad enough, but waiting rooms?” You suppress a shudder, because you definitely don't want to prick your lovely Fire dragonette with a needle. Her reactions are faster than yours. “You are a case study of Yin and Yang,” Er Yin-sensei murmurs softly as you wrap Kiku's waist in a belt of delicate golden chains, tied just a little off center in a semi-knot, little droplets of gold at the ends of them, one end longer than the other. 'Look here, at this length of thigh, isn't it slim and pretty? Just off the hip!' Perfect. Bracelets, bracelets, hmnn. “Does it trouble you?”
>>1380959That makes you put a hold on your work. You pretend to admire your current handiwork, and Kiku-chan holds very still, well aware of the needles and pins, and also aware that if she gets upset she'll melt them and ruin all your fine work. “I'm not sure that the right word. It makes things awkward sometimes....” Holding up the needle with the glittering thread of gold, you give Kiku the warning without saying anything. Kiku nods, as you sew the 'patches' into place with great care and precision. “I think mostly it is just....” You take a deep breath and remove the pins and needles, then let the breath go slowly. “It's just that I seem to be able to do so much, but it's not quite enough to keep me ahead of the things I have to accomplish, you know? It's like having a superpower that isn't useful, or a weapon that....never mind, that wouldn't make sense.” Taking the red resin dragon bracelet, chased and hinged and clasped in gold, you place that on Kiku's delicate wrist, and it hands perfectly askance, but without threating to fall off. Her other wrist gets a little chain of gold, with a half dozen charms, all matching those of your family. You add jade studs of red and gold for her pointed ear tips, and ass a second black jade piece, a coin opposite her lizard earring. She looks down at herself dubiously, unable to see the effect the trim and jewelery has. “eyes up.” she looks at you and you go to your knees before her, pulling out Kiki's makeup kit.You should probably buy one in Shibuya. Very very light accents. Something as intense yet beautiful as yours. Something as invisible yet beautiful as Er Yin's. Something slightly heavy, to stand out with her outfit. Ask her opinion about makeup – she wasn't always a priestess or miko, after all.
>>1380961> Something as invisible yet beautiful as Er Yin's.
>>1380961>[x] Something slightly heavy, to stand out with her outfit.>[x] Ask her opinion about makeup – she wasn't always a priestess or miko, after all.
>>1380961>[X] Something slightly heavy, to stand out with her outfit.>[X] Ask her opinion about makeup – she wasn't always a priestess or miko, after all.
>>1380961> Ask her opinion about makeup – she wasn't always a priestess or miko, after all.Hasn't Inau kind of been helping Ryukusa in this area, since part of it (the minimal sleeping where there's action to be done) is a demigod thing and not completely exclusive to Ryukusa? Or are our heroine's problems in this regard exceptional even in that category?
>>1380961> Something slightly heavy, to stand out with her outfit.> Ask her opinion about makeup – she wasn't always a priestess or miko, after all.I like kind of heavy makeup.Also, I kind of dislike the " Something as intense yet beautiful as yours" and "Something as invisible yet beautiful as Er Yin's" ones, because I feel like Kiku should be allowed her own brand of beauty, right now.
>>1380961> Something as intense yet beautiful as yours.> Ask her opinion about makeup – she wasn't always a priestess or miko, after all.Since intense describes Kiku well
>>1380989>Inau has been helping a little, but Ryukusa is exceptional even then. Still, Inau-kun helped her understand a lot of what was going on.
Man, I really hope there will be a sex scene before the end of the date.I know it'd be incredibly great and heartwarming even without it, but Er Yin and Kiku deserves it. And Ryukusa too.
>>1381023And anons too?Well, I'll be happy whatever happens on the date.
>>1381049Feel like Ryukasa's life is getting a bit more normal. For the moment at lest.
>>1381055So far at least! Never know what interruptions may be in the wings. But it's nice to have some peaceful date-time with the wives.
>>1381061Speaking of business, I wonder if there are any gaps caused by Yama leaving Japan and taking his top enforcers with them that we could maybe exploit? It's only been like a day or so since he left, right?
[XX] Ask her opinion about makeup – she wasn't always a priestess or miko, after all.[X] Something slightly heavy, to stand out with her outfit.You study the outfit then the delicate face before you, her Cupid's bow lips pursed and her gaze becoming somewhat adversarial. Not that it usually isn't. Cupping her cheek lightly, you run your thumb along her brow, and she immediately relaxes, her expression placid and calm. When her eyes open, they're far less angry, and definitely less irritable seeming. “I have an idea of what should be done, but what kind of makeup do you prefer? I mean, if you have a preference.” Er Yin chuckles softly as Kiku-chan gapes at you, then closes and opens her mouth several times, apparently at a complete loss. You place your finger on her lips and she blinks at you in shock. “Stop that, you are not anything like a fish.” She is so flabbergasted by the question that doesn't even set of her matchstick impersonation. “Right, so, Kiku-chan does not do makeup,” you note, before you begin adding the lightest layer of foundation you possibly can.It's just another form of art to you, and that is one thing you are surprisingly good at. Harajuku styles are pretty basic, despite their seeming variety. The white and gold are easy, she's so pale already....the touches of red are more difficult, but you will manage. Eyeliner, eyeshadow, brow pencil, careful, careful lip-paints, just so very careful with those tiny, perfect lips of hers. “You mustn't get upset by their reactions,” you warn her gently. “You look very different like this, and they won't be meaning to insult you or make you feel bad.”She starts to protest, but she studies your face a moment, and she relaxes. “Yes, aniki,” she murmurs, her eyes closing as you add finishing touches. Sitting back, you look at your handiwork as she blinks and looks at you dubiously.Her white satin blouse has slightly shortened sleeves, baring her delicate wrists and exposing the heavy red resin bracelet and the delicate charm bracelet on opposite wrists. The V-neck bares the hollow of her throat and the golden edging further draws the eyes to her small, firm breasts. The crimson and gold curlicues and waves along the sides of the dress curl under her breasts slightly, further emphasizing barely present curves, and the fact that the curls and waves flare out from a narrow line along her ribs suggest how her hips and upper chest are hourglass hinted, rather than straight lines.
>>1381090The belt that cinches the blouse at her waist glitters and the golden teardrops sometimes chime together, less ostentatious than bells, but nicely elegant in their presentation. The flowing sating pants have gilt edging along the sides and at the ankles, along with slivers of crimson silk. Her gold and red jade studded ear-tips even out the gold and black jade earrings which are heavier and asymmetrical, and thus balanced by the asymmetrical bracelets. This leads naturally to her gold and crimson eyeshadow, evened out with very dark edging along the brows and the mascara upon her lashes. Her lips are a darker crimson, almost scarlet, but lightly dusted in gold, making her eyes glitter beautifully under her red hair.The final part are her crimson and gold embroidered Chinese slippers, and these you place on her delicate feet. “Hands,” you demand, realizing you missed something. She holds them out and you pull some gold leaf from the sticky, thick darkness of Nowhere, and this you apply to her delicate little fingernails, much to her shocked and emphatic consternation. “For you, nothing else will work. You'll burn off and chip any normal nail polish.” She makes a soft, frustrated noise in her throat, much to Er Yin's amusement.You sit back and look at her carefully and critically.  Perfect. Good enough – you don't know if anything else can be done. It will suffice, you suppose. Not the greatest achievement, but you'll be okay with it. You're not sure about it – let the others judge.
>>1381097>[x] Perfect.Cute wife is always perfect.
>>1381097[X] You're not sure about it – let the others judge.[X] Good enough – you don't know if anything else can be done.
>>1381097> Good enough – you don't know if anything else can be done.
>>1381097>Perfect>Rub Kiku's neck sensually, where a collar would be, and ask her if she feels like her outfit is missing something~>Kiss your perfect priestess wife. >>1381109>>1381112Man, you guys are harsh.
>>1381097Adding to my vote here>>1381116:>Show her what she looks like, and ask her opinion.
>>1381097> Perfect.>Though ask Er-Yin if you could dress Kiku more often in the future? She seems to be a fun challenge for Ryukusa.
>>1381116I am always wary of calling things perfect. To me it implies that this is best outfit Ryukusa will make, that this is the best Kiku will ever look. Also while I like your sentiment, how is something perfect if might be missing something?
>>1381097> PerfectSomebody call a drawfag. I have a MIGHTY NEED.
>>1381097>[x] Perfect.>But get second opinions anyway.
>>1381097> Perfect.> Show her new look off to everyone.
>>1381127It's not because it's perfect that it can't be improved. It's prefect for the moment it is.Also, it's Kiku who is perfect, even with her flaws and troubles. The outfit is just hers perfectly.
>>1381126Actually, maybe leaning more towards> Good enough – you don't know if anything else can be done.because I kind of agree with >>1381127
>>1381144I mean I get that, but it isn't how I see perfection. I love everything about this, I just have a personal caution regarding the concept of perfection.
>>1381127Amen. Besides, creative frustrated Ryuzuka is fun. How would Akari react?
>>1381097>[X] You're not sure about it – let the others judge.
[X] You're not sure about it – let the other's judge.[XX] Perfect – at this moment, for this situation, anyways.[+] You'll have to do this more often, you think....[+] Definitely needs a necklace. Or a collar.[+] Second opinions are now required.You nod slowly. At this point you really have nothing to complain about aside from the fact her neck is bare. The gold edging of the neckline isn't enough, but you suspect that you will find something nice for her in Shibuya's shopping district. Not to mention Yui-chan, Shoko-chan, and maybe Akari. You stand up slowly and gently take her by the hand....and realize there isn't a full length mirror in the room. In fact, there are no mirrors. Kiku probably never uses them, and Er Yin can't, so....that makes perfect, if terribly annoying sense.“I think I'd like to dress Kiku-chan a little more often, Er yin-sensei,” you comment mildly, much to Kiku-chan's alarm as her hair explodes. “Her body type is especially suited for kei-style and it's difficult to make her look so lovely as she does now.”“She sounds lovely,” agrees Er yin as she rises, straightening her slacks carefully and carefully stretching her upper body, threatening to pop a number of buttons.“Real gold is second only to real silver in terms of sound, in my experience,” you comment mildly. “I do own most of what I have in my wardrobe, so that makes the sound much sweeter.”Kiku-chan looks confused as you lead them towards the door. “When did you earn so much money, aniki?”You run your finger along her neck as she slips out the door, and she shivers, almost reading your mind about how a collar should go there. “Well, between working with Chisato for a while and making a killing in the Harajuku district, I'm pretty well off. I can afford rent on this suite for another two years, at least, before I have to downsize it.”“By that time, I suspect we will be living elsewhere, Ryukusa-sama,” Er Yin mentioned softly, her fingers extending as she passes you, and your talons tracing hers as she steps into the hallway. “There's a mirror to the left, in the hall,” you mention casually, and Kiku's shocked gasp is audible into the living room, you suspect. Definitely outdid yourself this time.
>>1381245Stepping into the hallway, you smile as you see Kiku-chan staring at herself in the mirror, her eyes steaming slightly and her expression awestruck. You step up behind her and lay your hands on her shoulder, a contrast in every way that somehow makes the you look more beautiful. When Er Yin steps to stand at your side, laying her hand on your shoulder lightly, the contrasts are intense, and the suggestion of your family dynamic is intense. Western and elegant Chinese cross dresser, Japanese beauty in old style Chinese ostentatious glory, delicate Ainu princess in contemporary Oriental style. Gloriously decadent and just asking to get mugged, seriously.“I think the others deserve to see this, don't you, Kiku-chan?” you suggest gently. You're kind of worried about how they'll react, but you're glad that Kiku likes it. That was the opinion that mattered most. She nods, and You escort Er Yin to the living room, while Kiku-chan nervously steps into the living room. The stunned silence that Kiku elicits when she presents herself is not only gratifying, it's reassuring. Kiki-hime's soft, “Onee-sama!” is the first voice, and after that surprised, amazed murmurs spill out of the room as you and Er Yin step into it. Kiku-chan's blood boils as she is applied with all too much attention for her taste, but she gratefully and sincerely thanks everyone for the compliments, demurring and politely saying that it was entirely your doing as well.“Aniki....may I take a picture?” Akari's cheeks are actually pink as she asks you for one of the more impolite things to ask another Clan Ryo member. Fortunately, you're not part of Clan Ryo any longer! Have her take two – you might have a use for this look sometime in the future. Allow her to do so, if Kiku-chan can handle it. Let her know you were going to have a professional photographer take some later. Yes, and by the way, what was Yui's collar size now? Politely defer to Er Yin on that one.
>>1381248> Politely defer to Er Yin on that one.
>>1381248>[x] Yes, and by the way, what was Yui's collar size now?
>>1381248>[x] Yes, and by the way, what was Yui's collar size now?>[x] Let her know you were going to have a professional photographer take some later.

Wonder what's Ryukusa's opinion on the ganguro style. And on the mamba variant.
>>1381296She respects the looks, based as they are on demonic noh masks, but she can't parse the anti-Japanese look sentiment due to her nature as a spirit-child.
>>1381248[X] Have her take two – you might have a use for this look sometime in the future.Have Akari send one to Ryukuza's phone and find a 3d print shop in Shibuya to make a 3D relief photo so Er Yin can 'see' this memory again as well.https://www.fastcompany.com/3037116/internet-of-things/touchy-feelings-helping-blind-people-see-photos-using-3-d-printing
>>1381319Now I get the image of Ryukusa starting a fashion trend based on makeup versions of demonic noh masks
[+] Cautious yes, but definitely get that collar sizing!“You'll have to ask them, not me. I'm the one with the permanent memory of it. But if you do, see if there's a shop in Shibuya that can print a three dimensional version.” She smiles at you a little and you feel stupid for even bothering to suggest it. “Fine fine, but ask them, and get me a copy of Yui's current fourth measurement while you're at it.”“Forty centimeters.” You blink at her in surprise. “You are going to Shibuya, aniki,” she chides gently.“Ah, so that was your plan, was it.” She looks totally innocent. Yeah, right. “Fine fine. Kiki's?” “Thirty three.”“Huh, she is kind of slender there isn't she.”“Aniki,” she chides gently, perfectly aware that you can't forget how slender and soft her neck was when you.... “All right, all right.” You slip over to the love seat where Inau-kun is quietly sitting, looking at the gorgeous beauties and pinching her nose shut. Shoko is in the kitchen, making something nutritious for her comrade-and-potential-love-interest. “It's okay, I've got you covered, Inau-kun. How are you feeling?” You smile as Yuuhi, Kiki-hime, Fuuta, and Kei all dote on the lovely Fire dragonette.“Better, aniki, thank you.” Her cheeks are a little flushed, but you're pretty sure that's because she's remembering your peculiar healing technique, stolen from Yui. “I think Shoko-san really does like me as much as you say. She's not swearing so much.”“Yes, I noticed that myself. On the other hand, her angry-face is going to become a lot more potent without that.” You glance at the recently repaired wall.“Uh....” You stroke her hair. “I want you on Kiki-hime's detail, if you feel you can handle it. If something happens to her, I want to be able to find the people responsible, without fail.” She nod seriously. “Sorry, but it's the price of giving my loved ones needed attention – someone has to help pick up my slack.” “It isn't slack of if it's people you love, aniki,” she replies without forethought, making you smile.“I can't argue against that. Thank you, Inau-kun.” You kiss her cheek, and rise, noting that Akari is earnestly speaking with Er Yin concerning the photograph. Er Yin looks surprisingly serious, and you narrow your eyes, studying your niji-chan's lips.“So, you're going to Shibuya?” Kiki-hime asks you, as she slips away from Kiku-chan, who is tolerantly accepting the attention she is being swamped in. Keep your eyes on Akari, you want to know what's going on there. All eyes on Kiki-hime, she is clearly trying to distract you. Well, that is where she's putting on the noh play, isn't it? So, choker, or collar? Combination of both? Maybe a cameo, instead of a locket? Multitasking is your forte!

>>1381391> Keep your eyes on Akari, you want to know what's going on there.> So, choker, or collar? Combination of both? Maybe a cameo, instead of a locket?
>>1381391>"Not only Shibuya. I have a couple of other spots I'd like to visit with my two ravishing dates. It may take a while."
>>1381391> All eyes on Kiki-hime, she is clearly trying to distract you.We can allow her to distract us, maybe it is possible for Ryukusa to be pleasantly surprised.
Cameo instead of a locket?...That'd remove quite a bit of the charm, probably. But eh, maybe it'll work.I'm partial for a real collar, but we should see...
[XX] So, choker, or collar? Combination of both? Maybe a cameo, instead of a locket?[X] Multitasking is your forte![+] A few other places as well – Er Yin has been cooped up a long, long time you know!Akari is apparently discussing the timetable for your visit to Shibuya, and gently hinting that there is a timetable for something else that Er Yin should take into account. “Well, among other places, yes.” You turn to her, and are a bit taken aback by Kiki-hime in a business suit. A well tailored one, though not nearly up to your standards, and definitely from the higher end stores (which ironically is why it isn't up to par – the better stores frown upon non-traditional looks for young women). She smiles and leans forward, her booms giving the slightly smaller-than-it-should-be undershirt a definite run for it's money.“Next time let me know, and I'll makes you a suit, Kiki-hime. As cute as you look in one, this is definitely not flattering you.” You gently undo the top buttons of her jacket, and she straightens, her hands clasped before her and watching you clip buttons and re-thread them quickly and efficiently.
>>1381554Huh, she managed to distract you. Kind of. Er Yin is explaining she's not entirely sure what you have planned, and will have to work around that if she's to follow Akari's suggestions. “We'll be passing through Harajuku, on the way to Shibuya, because I need to break some hearts and reset some trends, and maybe influence a few anime and manga. Er Yin is going to knock them dead.” Kiki-hime nods seriously, taking mental notes so loudly you can hear the brush sliding across the paper in her head. “Then to Shinjuku, to visit the Narutoken Shrine, then Chuo park, and the Inari Kio Shrine. Then I was thinking of Love Street Hill in Shibuya, and showing Er Yin the interesting shops she and Kiku-chan really need to look into. Also, we'll be picking up some collars. Maybe manacles. Do you prefer chokers? I could get you a cameo, but locks and lockets are really prettier in my opinion.”Her cheeks are glowing pink as you finish, as though you've said nothing strange. Which really you haven't. “Then the theater and the gai, to relax after we've seen some of what Love Street hill has to offer. I think we'll skip Love Joule's Self Service Bar, though. I was thinking that might be something for Inau-kun and Shoko, really.” Her cheeks are really red now. “Oh, you haven't been? Well, I'm not surprised. We'll go there sometime soon too.”“That....won't be necessary?” she murmurs uncertainly as she smooths out her jacket and tries to recover her balance. Once she recovers a little composure – during which you notice Akari arranging Er Yin and Kiku-chan for a photograph – she smiles and takes a deep breath. “I hope you enjoy your date with Er Yin and my onee-chan,. Ryu-chan. They really do deserve this. They deserve you.” No one deserves me – but some people earned me. Thank you, Hime-chan. Kisses are enough words. Lift her hand with the ring and gently remind her about it before you kiss her hand. Shake your head, but nothing more disagreement wise than that, before you embrace her.
>last vote for the evening.
>>1381559>[x] No one deserves me – but some people earned me.I'll go sleep then, thanks for writing!
>>1381559> No one deserves me – but some people earned me.> Lift her hand with the ring and gently remind her about it before you kiss her hand.
>>1381559>No one deserve a person, but you're more than happy to give yourself to them. You sure are going to do your best to make them as happy as they should be.> Kisses are enough words.
>>1381559>[X] Kisses are enough words.> Thank you, Hime-chan.It's tricky, believing that, after the stuff Ryukusa has already done, the stuff she has yet to do, she's the one Er Yin and Kiku have been waiting for all this time, the one who helps make everything they've went through until now worth it. Or is that not coming into play for Ryukusa right now?
>>1381559> Kisses are enough words.
>>1381592>To quote Akari, "Sometimes Ryukusa forgets she's a good person."
[XX] Kisses are enough words.[X] No one deserves me – but some people earned me.[+] Deserve is a strong word, Kiki-hime....You smile, controlling your immediate impulse to disagree, and kiss your wife, slowly and deeply, not really concerned about whom might be paying attention at the moment. She reciprocates the kiss eagerly, trying, it feels like, to convince you with a kiss what words aren't doing so well for. When the kiss is finally broken, she isn't the only one with flushed cheeks. Her smile is winning and brilliant, and pretty much lights up the room.“I don't really think it is about 'deserving' me, Kiki-hime,” you murmur softly as you take her hands. You kiss each of them but take special care to kiss the ring that you traded hers for, reminding her of its presence. “But they have been waiting for me a long time, and I will do my best by them, to make their wait worthwhile, as long as you allow me to do so.”Her eyes sparkle brightly. “You say the sweetest things.”Akari steps up to you, and gestures. “Aniki....” Kiku-chan, her blood not quite at a boil, is looking more put out than any cat has ever managed, while Er Yin gently rusts those terrible talons on her tiny lover's shoulders.You let out a long-suffering sigh. “Yes, Akariiiiiiiii.” Kiki-hime laughs and everyone is treated to the spectacle of you being ordered about by your subordinates (does this happen to every boss? Or just you?) as Yui and Akari photograph you, Er Yin, and Kiku-chan....as well as you alone, you with Kiku, and you with Er Yin quite studiously. Then, beyond all reason, it becomes a family photo shoot, and you are quite flustered when every single member of your new clan insists on being part of the photo-shoot. Kiki-hime quickly takes charge, and you are quite rapidly drafted into outfit making as well, while Shoko and Kei are drafted into fetching materials, making backdrops, and things get entirely out of hand. Not that they and Akari and Yui don't get their turns at being dressed up and photographed!
>>1381782By the time the whirlwind of photos, pictures, costume changes, and dressing up is done, you're not quite sure what happened or how. But you are quickly ushered – with many loving kisses and hugs – to the waiting limousine with a paired human and nogitsune-born driver and servant set, thoughtfully provided by Her Imperial Highness as both guide and chauffeuse. Your final admonishment from Kiki-hime is, appropriately, “Do everything I wouldn't do.” You politely neglect to point out that you've already done most of that, and that doing what she would do is more likely to be new experiences for you. At the moment it is just you, Kiku-chan and Er yin in the back of the spacious limousine, your beloved sorceress and dear priestess sitting side by side across from you, perfection and wonder in a superb balance. Your heart is pounding, because you know in your heart that while it's not true that every good thing comes with interruptions....there is half a demon, the next best thing to a goddess, and an entire clan of mystic warriors who would just love to kick your feet out from under you hiding in the grass that is your future.>To Be Continued....
Thank you for reading and playing.I didn't realize how late it got. I'll stay a little while for questions, but as always I'll keep a weather eye on the thread for a while.
>>1381796Thanks for running XS.

Thanks for running!

>>1386254I'd probably lose my thread, and end up having prompts like  Start sexting your on-and-off roomie. Switch from peppermint schnapps to Apricot Brandy Log onto Second Life and see if your girlfriend wants to play with your new shark genitals. Fuck this pussy ass schnapps, down some rum and see if you can keep it down longer than 15 seconds. Take your readers into your actual magical realm rather than the one they like.

>>1386354"To a dark dark place this will take us."
>>1386324Omake thread then.
>>1386696Fine. Monday, assuming nothing terrible happens.
>>1386836This can only go awesome places. Or a ban, who knows.
>>1386836Oh dear.>>1387322I dunno, for a board that did as I recall ban even written smut at the start, it sure seems to be lax on it nowadays. I guess it could depend on levels of magical realm.
>>1386836I find this mildly concerning due to the connotations of "Fine-full-stop" but I'm choosing to be optimistic.
