Yesterday was a blur. They ended up keeping you in the infirmary overnight, so they could monitor your health; between the frequent examinations and the steady trickle of well-wishers showing up to ask how you were doing, you didn't get much opportunity to make sense of your current situation, let alone ask any of the growing number of questions floating around in your head. Of all the things puzzling you about this place, the people themselves are the greatest mystery. They've been friendly and welcoming, sure; but sometimes it feels like they find you familiar in some way. They keep calling you Sigarzghar,, too, and you have no clue why.

But these confusions don't trouble you -- you find the others more worrying, such as why you were in a coma for three days, or why all your posessions are missing from your pockets. You wonder how long you'll be stuck in this place, but you don't have much in the way of leads to figure out where else to go -- there're Delaney and Quincy over on Gansett shelf, the tentacle twins on the Concourse, and... that's about it. You're not sure how you'd get to either of those places from here, so you certainly feel stuck. Right now, more than anything else, you need answers.

You suppose that's why you're waiting here. They discharged you from the infirmary shortly after you awoke this morning, and led you here, telling you that Cider has invited you to her quarters to discuss a few things. You get the impression she's in charge around here; surely she can help you make sense of why you're here and how you arrived, and perhaps what to do next. At the moment there's already a visitor in there with her, judging from the muffled sounds of conversation; you wager it's been 20 minutes already, and you hope it isn't going to take much longer.

There's a difference between wiggly and fuzzy. Penny sees wiggly (so WE see wiggly) but Mint sees fuzzy. Penny and Mint aren't fuzzy, but they are wiggly.
No. 927623 ID: 2202fb

Guess we are both more attuned to the dust than the average bear. I have yet to realize the full implications yet though.
No. 928004 ID: 15a025

Ask how she feels if something is fuzzy or not. Is it like a feeling in the air, or is it more of an internal feeling.

"I don't think you're crazy," you respond, placing a hand on Mint's shoulder. At first she tenses up, but she relaxes again soon after.

"...You don't?"

"It's far from the weirdest thing I've encountered over the past week. I think I can believe you might have some kind of extra-sensory perception."

"Th-thanks... but I'm still the only one who can feel it, so what does that make me --"

"It makes you special, and that's it. So you said it's fuzzy? Like it looks like everyone's constantly pulsating?" You hadn't really noticed it consciously until now, but there's definitely a strange... wiggliness to every person you've seen so far. ...Except for the other people in that basement you woke up in. So maybe it's only people who still have living dust, maybe? You honestly aren't sure.

Mint shakes her head. "No, I don't see it." She sighs. "I feel it. And it's everybody here on this... shelf? Whatever they call it. It gets stronger when I get close to other people... except for you."

"What do you think it means? The fuzziness, that is."

"...I don't know, but I don't like it."

"...Is it painful?"

"No, just... weird. Worrying."

"Now let me ask you a question," you say, searching the chest of drawers for your stuff. "Do you feel like you might be in the wrong body?"

Mint pauses for a moment. "...I hadn't really thought about it, so I guess not. Do you?"

"We're both humans, right?" You find your things, and from what you recall, nothing is missing, aside from the glyph page and the blood sample Cider mentioned. Whoever brought it here was even courteous enough to consider your height and put it all in the bottommost drawer.

"Yeeaaaahhh?" She seems confused by the question. "What else would we be?"

"I feel like I'm a human, but.." You gesture towards your own body. "We don't look like humans. These aren't what human bodies look like."

"...Then what do humans look like?"

"Well, they -- hmm." Up until just now you were certain you knew what humans look like, but when you try to recall the specifics of it, you draw a blank. "I... don't know. I thought I knew."

"O-oh." An awkward silence descends upon the room.

A few minutes pass, and the silence is finally broken when Mint sighs. "...What if they weren't always like that?"


"The people here. What if they weren't always fuzzy? What if this place... made them that way?" She looks back at you, a pained expression on her face. "What if it makes us fuzzy? What if it changes who we --"

Roz bursts through the door, dragging a rack of clothing behind her; Mint does her best to act like she wasn't saying anything, and you follow suit.

"Dress-up tiiiime~!" Roz shouts excitedly, tossing a couple of plastic-wrapped bundles to you. "Catch!"

Catching the bundles in your arms, you tear them open and discover that they contain several sets of sports bras and panties -- at long last, underwear! "O-oh hey, thanks!" You respond. Just holding it makes you feel relieved.

"C'mon, try somethin' on and see how you like it! I tried to keep the variety pretty high -- it's all hand-me-downs and donated clothes, but there's a lotta good stuff in here."

Paper doll time! Please suggest up to four outfits to add to Penny's wardrobe, either from the pre-made outfits, or from outfits drawn on the provided paperdoll. Penny's jumpsuit will be kept as a fifth outfit. Feel free to suggest changes or other additions to Penny's attire.

Be sure to mention which outfit you want Penny to wear for the rest of the day.

Haha why does she have a version of her outfit in your size?
I like B and F.
She should wear F for the rest of the day.
No. 929232 ID: b1b909

Love outfit G. Insanely cute. Go for G.
No. 929235 ID: fc9d03

A or B are my faves
No. 929237 ID: 864e49

Maybe keep the jacket from B

Maybe E, lot of pockets on that one.
Actually again maybe just the jacket and gloves.
In fact if the belt from D is adjustable then pair it with the gloves and jacket from E on top of C.

And keep A for more casual attire.
No. 929239 ID: 05ebc7

Hm...I'm liking B and E the most. F might be good, too. I like the blouse on H and I could live with the skirt, but I'm not liking the heels.
No. 929240 ID: 10c408

B, E, F and H. Wear E for the rest of the day.
No. 929241 ID: 080aaf

B is a pleasing balance of fashion and pocket space, H has HEELS, and D is a little version of Roz's outfit. She'd like if we picked that.
As for a fourth outfit, perhaps a plain tee and cargo shorts, something with a simple meaningless logo to fill space, like a delta or a lambda.
aka too lazy to draw the Steve this time

B, C, E, and H, definitely. C mostly for those funky glasses.

You kid, but if going nude got the most votes, I would let it happen.
No. 929265 ID: c8452a

I also vote for not cargo pants
No. 929266 ID: eceda8

My vote's on B,C,E and J
No. 929267 ID: 2202fb


Okay, so imma vote nude for while we are here cuz casual nudity pushes all the right buttons :P.

..but for when we leave, lets go with the pants of E with the gloves and boots from C, the top of B, but make the jacket either brown leather or olive drab and give it the pockets from the top of E. Add on a chestrig (platecarrier if we can get it) and a holster belt to it (which would for now be empty) along with aviator sunglasses. Add an MICH-style helmet (without cover) when things get spicy. I cant draw for shit, so i would really appreciate it if i could get a mock-up of what I am describing, but that is nothing more than a polite request.
No. 929268 ID: 2202fb

We also need to keep a set of D even if we never wear it.
No. 929273 ID: 7fb87a

"A" for looking comfy.

And go au naturel for the rest of the day, or just in your underwear.
No. 929284 ID: e2f5cc

B and G should be your usual clothing, depending on how cool or cute you feel that day.
C Is your spicy clothing.
and H is for when you have to be fancy.
For now though, go around nude. Nothing ventured nothing gained right?

B or E.
Preferably E.

Thanks to some new developments, I'm adding to my initial vote for G over with a vote for nudity while around this place...

Casual nudity time it is!

Or when we have to wear something I vote G

Going to have to also vote against nudity as it would kinda be a 180 from what Penny has been wanting.

Outfit Vote, Final Round
This round, the four most popular pre-made outfits will be pitted against the custom outfits suggested during the last round. The four most popular outfits from this round will be chosen for Penny's wardrobe.

Several of the outfits have alternate versions requested by some suggesters, numbered 1 and 2. Voting for either version counts as a vote for the outfit overall; for example, a vote for E2 counts as a vote for E, H1 counts as a vote for H, etc. If the outfit in question wins the round, the most popular version will be chosen.

As with last round, be sure to vote for which outfit for Penny to change into; in the event that someone voted for one last round but doesn't this round, their vote will be carried over to this round.

You may vote for Penny to go naked instead, but this will be treated as a simple majority vote between going naked and staying clothed, separate from the vote for what outfit to wear. This means that you may both vote to go naked as well as suggesting to wear a particular outfit in the event that the naked vote fails. While you may also vote against nudity, suggestions that do not explicitly vote for nudity will be counted as votes against it as well. Please note that walking around naked is likely to affect other characters' opinions of Penny, and therefore may impact the quest's plot.

Custom outfits:
I: >>929241
J: >>929253
K: >>929250
L: >>929267 (Note: Vesper doesn't have much in the way of military gear, so the chest rig and helmet have been omitted.)

Nudism hooo

But aside from that J, H2, K, & B because we need something practical to go along with the everyday wear
No. 929448 ID: 7fb87a

wearing J
No. 929449 ID: 32e6c4

E2, J, H2, L1.

Wear L1 right now.
No. 929450 ID: fd2d31

L1's got the "rebel without a cause" vibe that'd fit Penny going against both a pseudocult and government who wants to control her in one way or another (optionally with the iconic "Top Gun" hat from movie with same name).

I and F got a functional "practical yet casual" theme (with F having a implied emphasis on hard labor), while H(1) seems to only work for formal-ish events.

E looks way too military for Penny's own good despite being practical, and B would make her look like she's dressed up to burgle or assassinate due to being so dark.

And while M technically works, it looks like it is split between going all-out late 80's / early 90's totally tubular turbo radical or not, it should either fully embrace the a e s t h e t i c s or distance itself.
Still bummed about G since it was the best fitting "relaxed" casual one
No. 929451 ID: 2202fb

okay, so after much consideration, i think i will change my stance to neutral on the nudity thing, so plz dont count me for or against it (maybe Penny develops a thing for exposure but is too sensible to just go out and do it and damn the consequences).

I am going to vote we take L2(with E pocketed pants, if we can), B, M, and J, if we go clothed, i vote for whichever of the four outfits i picked has the most wear-it-nau votes(if any do).
No. 929452 ID: 2202fb

sorry, meant E2 pocketed pants, not E.
No. 929453 ID: 891b91

>i think i will change my stance to neutral on the nudity thing, so plz dont count me for or against it
Sure, I'll avoid counting anyone who explicitly says they don't want to be counted for or against it.

No. 929470 ID: e2f5cc

Throwing my lot in for B, H1, J, L1, and running around nude for a little bit.
No. 929472 ID: e51896

Lets see...

L1 for inventory management, and we look like a cool biker (Lots of pockets = more things to steal collect without losing space)

J for casual wear (the yellow is a good color compliment for all the purple around this place, it'll give people something refreshing to look at)

H1 for formal occasions, or fancy parties (I have a feeling there will be moments like those during our time here)

B, for something decent for going outside and meet new people with

for what to wear for today, we'll go with J, since we aren't planning on doing anything too productive since we just got here

As much as I like casual nudity, I'm voting against it as I prefer an ENF Penny over a casual nude Penny...

...but I just realize we might not have pajamas to wear to sleep tonight, and might have to sleep naked sooo... maybe we can do something a little daring late at night to relieve some stress?

No. 929513 ID: 2bccc2

B - great day to day outfit, and it goes very well with Penny's fur. My vote for what to change into.
H2 - a good dress outfit without feeling too fancy. Something with good color for when she wants it. Against high heels for practical and aesthetic reasons.
I - another nice casual outfit with a good color palate for Penny. More casual wear than B but not quite laying around on a couch level.
K - laying around on a couch level.
