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.

"No, but they were willing to help me out when I was in a bind, and I just up and vanished on them. They seemed like the sort that would be worried. So I wanted to balance my ledgers, so to speak. I respect honor like that."

Don't give her any details on the whos or whats, just keep it plain, and emphasize your respect for those that help you out how you want.

that owl that is staring at us wasn't the only animal we encountered that had vertical eyes. those foxes we saw the other day had the same vertical eyes. Is that owl interested in us like those foxes were earlier? hmm... Don't be alarmed if it tries to perch on you.
>>
No. 932607 ID: ea5947

Any animal would look at you if you were the only person passing by. Nothing strange about that.

Tell Roz that while you may only have known that person for a short time, it was enough to make a couple of plans with her. When one makes plans with another, it feels normal to either follow them, or inform that person in case of any changes to these plans. You can also tell her something more concrete, about how that person more or less owes you some money. So if you are to stay here for a while, that money would be pretty useful to have. It would certainly allow you to pay Roz for all these clothes.

They're one of the first people we had an actual conversation with after losing our memories or whatever. Of course we're all little attached to the first person who ever (in this life) gave us attention. Besides, you don't meet people or make friends, connections, allies or amigos without staying in touch. And they're someone not associated with youze guys, so having contact with someone outside this group makes us feel like we have more freedom. That makes it easier to adjust living here cause we feel like we have control.

Also what >>932607, they owe us some money.

Clearly not "wildlife"! Remember, those foxes were very intelligent and clearly controlled somehow. Either by their master if pets or boss if sapient.

Maybe the foxes were just uniquely domesticated, but we can't just assume that an owl with the same traits isn't also working with the foxes.

Anyway, yeah, before you got here you got a really kind job offer from someone who didn't need to give you help. You owe it to her at least to let her know you're alive.

Penny, I fear that our encounter with Roz's everything may have rattled our last few screws loose and we are definitely going over the deep end of this already very shallow pool.

But perhaps now is a good time to ask if it's normal for critters to have weird eyes. I mean, we have Roz here, and she seems to Know Things About Stuff.

I'm probably being too paranoid, but I am not really sure about asking Roz if it is weird for animals to have vertical eyes. What if in this world, vertical eyed wild animals are the norm and not many people or unique people only remember animals having vertical eyes, and you'd reveal too much info about yourself? I don't know, Maybe Mint is a better person to ask... But like I said, could be just me being paranoid...

Maybe you're forgetting that the foxes were snooping around and looking for stuff? There's nothing crazy about assuming that they might not be the only intelligent animals around. We don't need to gaslight Penny about this.

>That owl. Is that a person? It's like we're being spied on.
You glance at the owl, looking for any sign of intelligence while trying to avoid paying too much attention to it. It just stares back through those strange, piercing eyes, and it unnerves you deeply. It has two left eyes, like the fox-things you encountered several days ago. Is it somehow related to them? For a moment you're swept away by the paranoid idea that it's spying on you, but you dismiss it as a figment of your imagination. Maybe the wildlife around here all have double left-eyes? You almost ask Roz about it, but you get a weird feeling that it'd be a mistake to mention this to just anyone. You wonder if Mint might know something about this, but you think it's probably unlikely -- she's practically in the same boat as you. Still, you feel like you can trust her, so you figure it can't hurt to mention it when the two of you are alone together.

"Exactly," you respond, doing your best to forget about the owl for now. "I haven't been... 'me' for long, so it's kinda like I've known them my whole life. They're one of the first people I had an actual conversation with after waking up, and on top of that they helped me out, so I feel like I should at least let them know why I disappeared on them."

The owl flies off suddenly, disappearing behind a building, as if somehow prompted by your acknowledgement of it.

"Heh, alright," Roz shrugs. "I'll see if I can't convince 'em over at Ormi for you. Anyway, c'mon, the bathhouse's down here."

Roz leads you down a winding flight of stairs leading beneath the streets. They open up into a small lobby, and a wave of humidity hits you as you enter. An L-shaped desk sits in the corner of the room, flanked by an open doorway to a hallway. The insectoid person sitting at the desk, whom you assume is an attendant, motionlessly looks up at Roz through lidded eyes.

"Hey Roz. The usual?"

"You know it. Unless the new sigarzghar here wants somethin' else and doesn't wanna be alone."

The attendant glances at you. "New sigarzghar, huh? Guess I gotta give you the rundown, then." He sighs and rattles off some directions in a disinterested monotone. "S' pretty simple. Head through the doorway to my right, hang a left for the ladies' section. You've got three options once you're in there: the private showers, the ladies-only spa, and the co-ed spa. I'll give you one guess which one is Roz's usual. The locker room has towels, and if you go to the spas you have to shower before getting in the water."

"Wow Ben, don't get too enthusiastic there," Roz chortles.

"I've only had to say that shit like a thousand times now, so sue me." He glances at you. "So, sigarzghar."

"Penny."

"Penny." He glances at Roz, an amused look in his eyes. "You gonna join Roz's nudist club for weirdos?"

"We aren't weirdos, fuck you," laughs Roz. "And it isn't a club! It's a social movement," she declares, folding her arms.

"Yeah, yeah." He waves a hand in Roz's direction dismissively as he turns his attention back to you. "You gonna join her nudist, er, social movement?" Roz starts to say something but he cuts her off, wagging a finger at her. "Ah ah ah! Don't try to sway her now, that's cheating!"

This is pretty much your best chance to do this Penny, you get the feeling of being nude in front of strangers while not being entirely in public, and these people would obviously be pretty used to seeing naked girls so you won't even get particularly strange looks beyond being new, and if worst comes to worst you can either cover yourself in the hopefully opaque spa water or abscond to the locker room and throw on a towel. Doing this will also increase your chance at banging Roz.
>>
No. 933811 ID: ead464

yes... ...I MEAN NO!  

While i'm not opposed to nudism, I think it would be out of character for us to suddenly be into it. I'd rather us getting into nudism happen gradually as the story progresses. Dont want this guy to see us as a weirdo (Plus, joining that club might make us lose access to some possible fun enf situations to occur later in the story, like Roz stealing our clothing in order to feel more open about nudity ;) )  

We will be taking the private showers... for now.

Oh hey, forgot to mention, we should see what that paper says on the wall, as well as look at the floor map under it in case we need to evacuate the area for whatever reason (would be a good way to change the subject away from this part of the conversation). Also, is that an alcoholic drink on the shelf behind Ben? Probably not as I think it would be wrong to drink on the job, right?

WOULD you join Roz' social movement for nudeys-not-prudeys? What would be the point - other than potentially letting you hang around with Roz more and earn some Roz Respec(tm)?

Are your experiences and desires enough to form a decision?

Pros:
You know you can be pretty assertive when you want. You have full-body fur and your biggest 'assets' are your ears, not your breasts, so it's not like you'd show off all that much (hell, you could use the former to cover up the latter in a pinch). You didn't hesitate to suggest trading sex with a stranger in exchange for favors. You're kinda sexually attracted to Roz.

Cons:
You'd probably attract more attention than you otherwise would. You 'feel' your nudity - at least when caught off guard. You don't like undressing for no good reason. ...You're kinda sexually attracted to Roz.

Conclusion:
You can probably handle going around nude on occasion, especially as a way of connecting with Roz and her social clique. You may or may not feel comfortable in your own skin depending on the situation.

Suggest you can become a Trial Member of her movement, and put your feelings to test on the issue.

Also, ask Buck tongue-in-cheek whether there's a 'movement' for slacking off at your desk job, or if that is a perk of his dar.

Roz has a social movement? Is this a joke or a real thing? I'm surprised members of the Vesper society or whatever the cult is called could have their own groups outside it. Maybe they won't be so restrictive after all.

Ask Roz how many other sigarzhars have joined her nudity friendship club.

I say try out the co-ed. Don't have to do anything lewd in there, but it could be a good way to meet new and helpful people.

"Er, I'll pass on the nudist club, thanks," you respond. You feel like you've answered this question before.
"Hah! That's another 20 chits for me." Ben rubs his fingers together, gesturing at Roz. "Pay up!"
"Yeah, yeah, you'll get your money later," Roz grumbles. "But one of these days I'll prove you wrong!"
"Uh huh, you just go on believin' that and I'll just go on gettin' paid."
"Yeah, until you have to pay me," Roz fires back.

"Speaking of social movements," you pipe up, feeling a little defensive of Roz, "Is there a 'movement' for slacking off at your desk job, or is that just a perk of your dar?"
An awkward moment passes while Roz and Ben trade glances. Suddenly, Roz bursts out in laughter.
"Hah! I like this one. About time we got a sigarzghar with a spicy tongue!" Ben remarks before looking back at you. "Now, I'll have you know they put me in this position as a specialist -- how else are they going to find out whether this desk is at optimal leg-propping height?" While he lacks the equipment necessary to make conventional facial expressions, you get the feeling that if he did he'd have a shiteating grin plastered across his face.
"Well, is it?" You ask.
"Hmm. Couple centimeters too high, if you ask me." He faux-sighs forlornly. "But I suppose we all must make sacrifices."
"Alright, can it cornball," Roz says, still chuckling. "Penny n' me gotta go get wet 'n naked now."
"Yeah, yeah," he sighs as he waves you off. "Have fun, don't drop the soap, et cetera, et cetera."

"Well, that was interesting," you remark as you follow Roz into the locker room.
"Hah, Ben's an asshole, but a lovable one. Don't take him too seriously or nothin', he wouldn't scuzz me like that if it actually bothered me."
"So what was all that about, anyway?"
"Oh, we just have a bet on whether I can get any newbie sigarzghars to join the nudist movement. I gotta pay him 20 chits for every sigarzghar who doesn't wanna join." Her toothy grin returns. "But if I get even one to join, then he's gotta pay me back double what I paid him. He thinks this is his way of convincing me that the nudist movement doesn't belong here, but sooner or later I'm gonna win. Just gotta be patient!"
"How long has this been going on?"
"For a few months now. He's gotten 160 chits outta me so far." She tosses a towel, a small bottle of shampoo, and a pair of disposable shower slippers to you. "Here, it's on the house. This stuff should treat your coat pretty nice."
"Thanks." You choose to avert your eyes while Roz starts undressing, fearing what getting an eyeful might do to you, and instead focus on stripping down yourself. "How many people are in your nudist club, anyway?"
"If you're curious enough to ask, you could always show up to one of our weekly get-togethers and see for yourself. You don't even have to get naked if you don't wanna."
"I dunno, I'll think about it, I guess."
"Hey, it's your call. No hard feelings if you'd rather not." Roz's locker slams shut, and you reflexively glance to your side. Yep, that's a buck-naked Roz, with her towel draped unhelpfully over her shoulder. The sight causes you to wonder if people ever have sex in this place, but you suppress the urge to ask about it -- you don't want to give the wrong impression. After all, Roz already knows you're into women, so it might come off as an invitation...
"Anyway," she continues, seemingly ignorant or apathetic of your gaze, "I'm gonna rinse off real quick and then hit the co-ed spa. Wanna come with?"
"Uh, I'm not sure," you respond, trying your best to keep your gaze from drifting to certain parts of her figure. "I think I just wanna relax in the shower for a bit."
"You sure? Could be a good way of gettin' to know people, especially with me there to introduce you!" She studies you for a moment. "Hey, I get that the whole nudity thing kinda bugs you... if it'd make you more comfortable, you could always just keep your towel wrapped around you. It's no big deal, no one's gonna think anything of it."

A) Decline Roz's offer and grab a shower stall for yourself. You need some private time to relax and reflect on your situation a bit.
B) Accept Roz's offer. Roz makes a good point about getting to know people, and like she said, you can cover yourself up if you'd rather not go nude.
C) Suggest the two of you stay in the ladies-only section instead. Getting to know some people sounds good, but you don't think you're quite ready to graduate to the co-ed area just yet.
D) Invite Roz to join you in one of the stalls. You're a little too new around here to feel comfortable with meeting a bunch of people who are in their birthday suits, but the shock of seeing Roz's body has worn off and it might be nice to have someone to chat with while you wash each other's hair. Plus, it might be a good opportunity to ply her for information.
E) ???

While the gesture IS nice, and by all means very understandable, I also feel like we would prefer to introduce ourselves at our own speed and pace, so to speak. Letting Roz dictate the time and place could throw things out of our narrative control unless we were particularly proactive about taking control of the conversation. And even then, we come from a position of weakness; even if we take the 'go, but with towel' option, we come across as shy or (perhaps more likely with our personality) stubborn, going against the mores intentionally. Don't want to make such a first impression right now. I'd like to hope we're going for rational, reasonable, trustworthy, but not too egregious or withdrawn.

Not to mention, the nudity thing, while clearly common, tends to denote a certain...vulnerability in people. Vulnerability that I don't think is good to expose right now, considering our long-term goals of escape. It's something that I think is possible to overcome, but would be difficult to execute unless all us suggesters were on the same page.

tl;dr:

If We Accept: It'll possibly allow introducing us to others to be quicker and easier, but puts us in a weaker position of impression if we don't control the conversation wholesale due to the sheer nature of the place and context- which is highly likely. Choosing to wear a towel would also make us seem like we're too shy to accept the local norms or too stubborn to abide by them- both not the first impressions we want.

If We Decline: We'll likely lose a bit of trust with Roz; she's been trying hard to get us to do her thing, and we could lose an easy in or an early vouch for our person. However, the means and methods of first contact with other individuals within the cult remain with us, allowing us to shape their impressions of us however we might want.

I'm not sure which I pick right now, just felt it'd be good to get my logic out early.

Going with this so you can get a feel for what the people in this maybe cult are like. I mean yes gathering info on this place is important seeing I see it as gathering information on who people are and who's who so we can try to build up an idea of people we might be able to trust, people to avoid for one reason or another, and people who we feel that we can safely pump for information on this maybe cult.

B)Cause you need to meet people and should probably get a little more used to naked people if you're gonna hang around Roz with much regularity, and go nude as you'll probably draw more attention to yourself if you go with a towel.

give a half jokingly excuse that you are only joining her in the co-ed showers because you have the strangest feeling that if you don't keep your eye on Roz, she might steal your clothing from the locker room to try to get you to embrace nudity
of course, that won't stop somebody else from stealing our clothing from the locker room ;)

Let's be honest, if just Roz is setting you off then a whole room of naked strangers is going to make you explode.

Fully support. More ENF shenanigans will be fun. Imagine having to chase down your clothing thief or try to sneak back in your room without being seen... nakedly~.

B. It seems like Roz is starting to get a little dissapointed in us. I would like to keep our friendship going, and if it means going in the mix bathing spa with her, so be it. But lets keep the towel on to keep our modesty and shame intact.

I should also mention that I already don't like this- how Roz is beginning to act. I don't know if she's doing it intentionally or what, but it almost feels like subtle emotional manipulation- guilt tripping, in other words. I could just be reading too much into things, but I've always been one of those people that really dislikes being coerced into doing something supposedly voluntary that I don't want to do.

It honestly just furthers my suspicions that this has cult leanings, if nothing else. No one should feel like they can't say no if they're uncomfortable.

After a bit of thought ...

... let's start off with D, sharing a shower for a bit. Just to acclimate, talk some more, and "feel things out," to help adjusting. It's still a pretty big shift, after all, considering this will be the first we've ever bathed since becoming ourselves!

That, and learning more about things, who Roz is, being a sigarzaghar, and the dars -- you know, since we need to choose one soon -- would definitely be beneficial.

After that and some time to relax, let's then do B, but keep the towel on. It could be kinda nice to meet a few people and talk some, and maybe help make this whole affair feel a bit more normal.

And besides, Roz has been really supportive so far and nothing if not nice to us, so ... it's only fair to show some of that back, right? Just not completely naked (yet).

But not because I want to see these anthropomorphic people naked, or anything. Just, you know, for research.

B) you should definitely start meeting the other people around here and this is a nice casual way to do so. Considering your reaction towards being naked around Roz and seeing Roz naked, the ladies-only section probably wouldn't be any more comfortable.

You haven't really had an opportunity to find out if you're attracted to men as much as you are women, so I'm tempted towards B just on the basis of more chances for self-discovery. And like, better to get over the shock you feel seeing people naked in a relaxed situation, with someone looking after you, than possibly at some random future point, right? There is a big aspect of just being conditioned when it comes to this sort of thing.

B, because getting to know people with the help of an established individual is an actual no joke opportunity. If you're worried about getting involuntarily tantalized try to focus on faces and backgrounds, not bodies. Roz caught you off-guard earlier, but surely you can steel yourself somewhat, right?

Roz has a good point, you realize -- this is an opportunity to get to know people in a relaxed atmosphere, and having Roz there to back you up, so to speak, makes it a bit easier. You feel like Roz might be a bit disappointed in your apprehensiveness, too... but shouldn't you be allowed to be apprehensive about anything you choose? Still, staying on Roz's good side and getting to know some people around here with her backing is probably worth the discomfort.

"I guess you have a point," you sigh. "I'll go -- but I'm keeping the towel on." You almost add, half-jokingly, that you need to keep your eye on her so she doesn't steal your clothes, but you stop short when you realize that it might give her ideas.

"Sure, sure, like I said, no one's gonna think anything of it. I'm gonna go rinse off, meet you in the showers."

"Alright," you reply, acknowledging her with a wave of your hand.

After she leaves, you finish undressing and neatly stack your clothes in the locker. A key is hanging by a lanyard inside; you take it, assuming it to be the key to the locker -- a surprisingly low-tech solution, compared to the things you've seen so far.

>of course, that won't stop somebody else from stealing our clothing from the locker room ;)
You frown at the possibility that someone might steal your clothes, but as you clutch the key to your chest you decide it isn't very likely. If they had a clothing theft problem around here, they'd use high-tech lockers, not mechanical ones, right? Besides, if it were to happen you could just wait in the locker room and get Roz or someone else to bring you new clothes. Or you could just walk back in your towel, which would be nowhere near as embarrassing as being naked in public was! You clutch the locker key in your hand instinctively, as though it were a talisman, and use it to test the lock one last time before looping the lanyard over your neck. You wrap your towel around your body, tucking the corner in so it hangs like a dress, then gather your toiletries and head through the door to the showers.

As you enter, Roz catches sight of you, and motions for you to join her under the open shower. You do your best to ignore the pendulous sway of her breasts as she does so.

A) Duck into one of the stalls and shower off in there. You're fine with meeting some new people in this setting, but you're strictly against taking your towel off in front of any of them for any longer than you have to.
B) Join Roz and rinse off at the open shower. It might be quicker that way, and Roz would probably like it.
>1) But shampoo your fur here. You just want to get the bathing over with so you can keep your towel on most of the time you're around other people.
>2) But let the shampooing wait for the spa. A little communal bathing could be relaxing for all you know, and Roz can help you get those hard-to-reach places. After all, it's not like you'll stand out doing that in a bathhouse of all places.
C) ???

A) We’ve pretty much decided this already. Holding yourself to a more comfortable situation is probably the best option here; we do intend to leave Roz and the rest of the “not a cult” behind us as soon as possible.

B1, to get this over and done with.

Also, as you are walking towards Roz, glance under the stalls and see if you can see legs in there to get an idea if other people are here.

also, as you walk towards Roz, accidentally slip and fall on your back, end up in an... inappropriate position.

Step out of your comfort zone but not too far. Show Roz that you're willing to join in but that your own boundaries still need to be respected.

I'm against B, because Penny already decided to wear a towel to the spa. It would be inconsistent for her to shower nude with other people here, but then suddenly be shy and need a towel for the co-ed spa.
I'm also against Penny slipping on the wet floor here. It would be way better if it happened after entering the co-ed spa ;)

A) Hold onto the stall doors when entering.

We've been a bit paranoid in the past, but insofar, this seems like a very relaxed and respectable atmosphere. It isn't as though Roz is suddenly making out with everyone, or anything silly like that.

Maybe it won't be too bad to talk a bit and rinse off.

So ... C: use the opportunity to talk to Roz some more, have her help you shampoo in one of the stalls (because acclimation is important!) and then go ahead and join her in the spa to meet some others -- with your towel, of course.
