Petal_To_The_Metal: WHATS UP BITCHES
XenoSaucy: Oh, hello there. :)
Petal_To_The_Metal: Buncha floret NERDLINGS in this server I see
YellowLove147: welcome to the Local Hydros Cluster Affini Fan Club >w<
Petal_To_The_Metal: me and the mistress just moved in
Petal_To_The_Metal: the habs here rule
Petal_To_The_Metal: everything is purple
XenoSaucy: Well, purple is the best color.
XenoSaucy: I may be a little biased, since my very lovely Meadrow, Esteemed Eight Bloom, is in charge of ecology here.
Pawbtacular: *barks in approval*
YellowLove147: Ya!! Normally we have more in chat but everyone’s still waking up. We’re the early morning crew >u>
XenoSaucy: you know how it is. Where are you coming in from?
Petal_To_The_Metal: Derelict rebel ship. The Xanadu. got captured just a week ago
Pawbtacular: *low whine*
YellowLove147: I’m sorry to hear that!! Oh my gosh
Petal_To_The_Metal: it’s all good. Mistress Dinah broke me out of a tough spot. She was a real hero
YellowLove147: I’m so glad to hear that
XenoSaucy: Indeed. We’re very glad that you’re here.
Pawbtacular: *agreeable bark*
Petal_To_The_Metal: Yeah, for sure. Me too
YellowLove147: I didn’t even think that rebel ships were still a thing. Didn’t the war end, like, ten years ago?
Petal_To_The_Metal: So like
Petal_To_The_Metal: it’s a long story
Petal_To_The_Metal: the commander was a real brain wiz
YellowLove147: Some xenodruggies will fix that right up good and proper ^w^
Petal_To_The_Metal: Oh, I’m sure they will
Petal_To_The_Metal: have you bitches heard of time dilation?
Pawbtacular: *affirmative arf*
Petal_To_The_Metal: Yeah. So the cap was like
Petal_To_The_Metal: “I’m gonna totally gonna put us as close to light speed as possible”
Petal_To_The_Metal: “they can’t catch us if we end up in another timestream”
Petal_To_The_Metal: Anyway long story short we were only really on the run for a year
XenoSaucy: Still… I’m shocked that it took the Compact that long to catch up
Petal_To_The_Metal: Mistress Dinah told me they didn’t want to decelerate the ship too quickly or something
Pawbtacular: *Pawbs nods, as a puppy with first hand experience with Terran ship engines. They are a dangerous quantity. Pawbs is sure the Affini did not wish any harm to come your way, and had several countermeasures at their disposal.*
Pawbtacular: *arf arf arf*
YellowLove147: *pets teh smart doggie*
XenoSaucy: Well… we are pleased that you’ve made it to our humble little club.
Petal_To_The_Metal: thank you thank you!
Petal_To_The_Metal: I actually got, uh
Petal_To_The_Metal: I got a request, if y’all don’t mind
YellowLove147: We’re all ears ‘w’
Pawbtacular: *cocks head with a quizzical arf*
XenoSaucy: What the issue, dear?
Petal_To_The_Metal: Soooooo I have an old friend
Petal_To_The_Metal: A comrade, if you will
Petal_To_The_Metal: he’s still trying to figure out this whole floret thing
Petal_To_The_Metal: so im gonna let him into the chat and help him figure some stuff out
XenoSaucy: We would be delighted to assist him with acclimating to all things Affini, if he is receptive.
YellowLove147: Yeah! Morning crew’s got you covered
Petal_To_The_Metal: Perf. Alright here he comes
“Curiodroid” has joined the server.
Pawbtacular: *doggy wave*
XenoSaucy: Welcome, Curiodroid. :)
Petal_To_The_Metal: hey buddy
Petal_To_The_Metal: It’s me
Curiodroid: Oh, hey!
Curiodroid: So…. you’re all florets, aren’t you.
Pawbtacular: *doggy nod*
XenoSaucy: Yes. We are. How may we assist you?
Curiodroid: I’m really nervous about all of this.
XenoSaucy: Oh… you poor thing.
Curiodroid: I know the drugs they used on me are making me feel less woozy I just
YellowLove147: hey, it’s gonna be okay
Curiodroid: I’m so sorry I shouldn’t be here right now
YellowLove147: No it’s okay! No you’re exactly where you should be
Curiodroid: I’m sorry I’m sorry itsj ust
Curiodroid: i feel this gross feeling in my stomach when i think about everything
Curiodroid: im calm but it’s this gnawing dread
Curiodroid: am i about to be eaten
Curiodroid: please, I need someone to tell me I’m going t obe okay
XenoSaucy: Oh. Honey.
XenoSaucy: You’re going to be just fine.
XenoSaucy: If I had to guess, a mix of Class A’s and Class E’s are currently coursing through you. It’s a potent cocktail… but there shouldn’t be any adverse reactions, unless you were taking any anxiety medications beforehand.
Curiodroid: oh this makes a lot of sense all of a sudden
Curiodroid: oh stars
XenoSaucy: you've been through a lot. Why don't you slow it down a little.
Pawbtacular: *offers flank as pillow*
Curiodroid: alright I think I am feeling better now
Curiodroid: thank you Pawbs
Petal_to_the_Metal: Curio is living with the Free Terran still being processed on planet. It's crowded here
YellowLove147: oh no! They must not have enough Affini to handle the poor Terrans
XenoSaucy: I see. So they're enlisting our help from us as well.
Curiodroid: Petal is right
Curiodroid: everyone is a little scared
Curiodroid: so I wanted to ask some qs about being a floret
Curiodroid: so I can calm myself and my friends
YellowLove147: Hydros Cluster Affini Fan Club is here to help! ^w^
XenoSaucy: Tell us the rundown. Why ask us instead of Petal?
Curiodroid: well… to be honest…
Curiodroid: Petal is so obviously high on xenodrugs
Petal_to_the_Metal: damn you called me out
Curiodroid: so of course she would have nice things to say about the Affini
Petal_to_the_Metal: oh yeah I'm absolutely vibing rn
YellowLove147: yeah that makes sense :3
Curiodroid: what about you all? How long have you been florets?
YellowLove147: oh! Yeah.
XenoSaucy: I only recently chose to become my mistress's pet a year and a half ago. It was a voluntary decision.
YellowLove147: former rebel! Five years ago. >:3
Pawbtacular: *whines in a way to indicate that it is going on 9 years with it's mistress*
Curiodroid: thank you for the answers
Petal_to_the_Metal: as you know I became a pet a week ago!!!
Petal_to_the_Metal: also heads up Dinah wants me so I might be afkkkkkkkk
YellowLove147: *waves* have fuuuuuuuunnnnn /)
XenoSaucy: As you can see, you have a range of experiences for you to get answers from.
Curiodroid: so what made you choose to be a floret, Xeno?
Curiodroid: yeah. I mean, you were a free Terran, but you picked, right?
XenoSaucy: Simply put, it was a decision made out of love and respect. Mistress Meadrow and I had common cause, as my degree in colonial habitation meshed intellectually with her interest in terraforming the planet. :P
Curiodroid: oh wow
Curiodroid: what about you, Yellow
YellowLove147: oh I absolutely did it for the druggies
YellowLove147: what, we're not supposed to admit the truth?
YellowLove147: god I was such a fighter
YellowLove147: "mistress you'll never stop me I'm going to rebel and there's nothing you can do to stop me"
YellowLove147: and then I was stopped
YellowLove147: it was so hot
Pawbtacular: *slightly horny whine*
Curiodroid: you all are so
Curiodroid: so open
Curiodroid: about this stuff
XenoSaucy: well, some of us try to have more restraint, but yes. We try to be open about what and who we love.
Curiodroid: I just… I'm so confused
Curiodroid: are the Affini really that amazing?
Curiodroid: I heard rumors they can change your body
YellowLove147: absolutely!! I have honkin tiddies now ^u^
YellowLove147: they have class-Gs to help too if you need that kind of thing
XenoSaucy: the Affini want all sophonts to be comfortable in their skin and as their best selves. :)
Pawbtacular: *affirmative yelp*
Curiodroid: It just feels like… too good to true
XenoSaucy: Oh, honey.
Curiodroid: I know, i know
Curiodroid: I mean i can see it, you know
Curiodroid: even in this small shelter
Curiodroid: food, water… basic amenities covered for decades to come
XenoSaucy: Affini are notorious for taking good care of refugees. We don't like to leave people behind.
Curiodroid: so obviously we don't need to be pets but
Curiodroid: how did you know? When it was the right choice
Pawbtacular: *serene growl*
YellowLove147: well for me I didn't have a choice! But I learned to love it so much
Curiodroid: the drugs really work that well huh
XenoSaucy: Yellow has made peace with their past. It's not just about mind-altering substances.
Curiodroid: Petal seems to think otherwise
Petal_to_the_Metal: whqhht are y iouu talkkkihbg abouuuut ummm Soo isober rn like you wouedkdlntn vekivieifiv
YellowLove147: what a cutie! She's going to fit in so well x3
Curiodroid: so what about free will? What about being independent? We're sapient just like them.
XenoSaucy: independence has always been a big sticking point for feralists. I get why. And ultimately the decision to become a pet is yours.
Curiodroid: i know. it all sounds so good but I'm worried if I try to be with
Curiodroid: I mean what if things don't work out
Curiodroid: what if She picks me but theb doesn't like me and just tossesme the moment she finds another person
XenoSaucy: I see… :/
Curiodroid: what’s stopping Her
Curiodroid: whats stopping them from just treating us as disposable
Pawbtacular: *Pawbs assures you that they will do no such thing.*
Curiodroid: okay but
Pawbtacular: *Pawbs explains that the Affini are very strict about documentation, and ownership becomes very permanent. It is a cherished, mutualistic connection between Affini and pet. Permanency (to certain ends) is also a core tenant within the Affini Compact, and enshrined in their basic codes of conduct. The very concept of disposability is something that the Affini abhor, and although feralists may cling to old decaying societies where scarcity was a real danger, this philosophy and mindset has absolutely little bearing on the kind of society the Affini have built.*
YellowLove147: Pawbs, I had no idea how eloquent you were! OuO
XenoSaucy: Pawbs tells it how it is. Some Affini may vary; they’re sophonts, like us. But if you have your heart set on a mistress, I think you should move forward with full confidence. The Compact will ensure that you will be cared for, for as long as feels good for you.
Curiodroid: I’m not
Curiodroid: i never said I had my eyes on anyone
XenoSaucy: Oh sweety. Bless your heart.
Pawbtacular: *giggly gruff*
YellowLove147: even I can tell you’re head over heels, silly X3
XenoSaucy: In all seriousness, no matter what (or who) you end up pursuing, whether it be free individuality or the arms of a mistress, know that we support you no matter what. You can always come back to the Affini fan club and chat with us… or even PM us.
Curiodroid: that means a lot to me
Curiodroid: thank you
XenoSaucy: Pay it no mind. You’re in company with friends. :)
Curiodroid: Okay they’re bringing new transports to the shelter
Curiodroid: oh gosh She’s here
Pawbtacular: *supportive bark*
YellowLove147: SHOOT YOUR SHOT >.<
Curiodroid: I think
XenoSaucy: You’ve spent enough time chatting with us. You’ve got someone else to talk to. ;)
Curiodroid: okay i think im gonna go
XenoSaucy: take care, sweetheart.
Curiodroid: see yall! Maybe i’ll meet you in person one day
YellowLove147: put in a request with your mistress and you might!!!
Pawbtacular: *barks salutations and farewells*
Curiodroid: okay bye
