    Well.
    Other than that her hair is cotton-candy pink, and she smells of the stuff, rather than strawberries. Apparently Civvy did come visit! Grace is too busy spluttering nothings to actually make any sort of attempt at conversation though.

    That moment when your godmodding admin friend spawns you in the water but water means game over.

    Aaaaalso, it only takes about 29.4 seconds for Strawberry to get really stressed out. So she's really relieved when Grace appears in and scrambles out of the water. And she's got cotton candy for hair!
    The mermaid has to smile and chuckles, which very soon becomes laughter. Not just because Grace looks funny and adorable like that, but also out of sheer relief, and a little feeling stupid about her own panicky reaction, too.
    Grace is lucky she wasn't dropped within hugging distance.

    "Besides the gates, I have only been here so far, but I have to agree, it is quite a lovely sight." Cherie looks over to Felandria, and continues with "And the gardens are nice as well." Did she just wink?

    Cherie's expression turns a little more serious when she addresses Felandria's first point. "What sort of stuff? If you can impart it to a stranger, of course."

    Cherie's face falls and she shakes her head. "It's always sad when love is something we wish to forget." She's quick to recover, though. "I won't ask at specifics. But I do hope you are able to move on, a lady such as you should not resign herself to loneliness."

    Civvy shrugs. "You are welcome. And no, I'm definitely not going to kick you out as soon as they're done. If you choose to leave, that is perfectly fine. But that will be your choice.

    Well. Doesn't exaaaactly mean game over.

    Grace does pretty quickly enter hugging distance, though.
    "Did you see that?" Grace asks, almost breathlessly. "Darn near tried to kill me. And sent a message for you." Her voice even changed a bit with her hair. Not very much at all, truthfully, probably more just her player wanting to keep hair colors and text colors linked together. But it iiiis a touch different. "That you can, uh, keep the chair.

    When Grace starts talking to her, the mermaid calms down just a little. At least until her acute ears pick up the subtle shift in Grace's voice. She even sounds sweeter now! Strawberry laughs harder, even slapping her knee. Or at least slapping the part of her tail where her knees would be, if she had some.
    "I... I'm sorry, I shouldn't laugh, but... your hair..." She is interrupted by her own laughter. "And, come on, the water's only, like, fifty centimeters deep around here. You won't drown, at least not while I'm still around." Strawberry still chuckles a little.

    "I can keep it? Really? So it's, like, a magical transforming chair? That's... pretty cool." She inspects the little heart key chain bauble. "For a second there, I thought I had maybe hallucinated everything that had happened. The hovering chair, the paradise landscape, the music, you... Or even that the portal had possibly done something to you, like it did to the chair. But hey! Everything's good now!"
    Then, the apocalypse happens: Not even thinking about whether or not appropriate in this situation, Strawberry leans over and reaches out for Grace's waist, intent on giving the woman a happy hug. There is no running from the mighty grasp of a super soldier, Grace, you're done for! Muahahaha!
    At least the mermaid resisted the urge to touch her pink hair to check if it has turned into actual cotton candy. That would've definitely been inappropriate.

    Outside but where really is inside, you know?

    "I mean," Grace admits, smiling a bit at Strawberry's enjoyment of her own situation. "It is kind of funny. And my hair is amazing, I'll have you know.

    And yeah, looks like keep the chai-"
    And then came the hug. Grace's eyes widen a bit as she realizes that she strayed a bit too close.

    What happens next depends entirely on Strawberry.
    As Strawberry goes for the hug, it becomes very rapidly apparent: Grace has no bones. And there is very, very little resistance to the hug, as hugging a normal person would have. So the question becomes: How tight was Strawberry's initial hug, and how long did it go for?

    [there are no bones inside]

    Well, Strawberry was expecting to kiiind of firmly hug a normal human body, so the applied force is probably large enough to give spineless Grace a serious squeeze. It doesn't last long though, maybe only a second, as Strawberry immediately pulls back upon learning just how squishy Grace is.
    She stares at her, at a loss of words. There's confusion written all over her face, and maybe a little fear, too.

    "Uh.

    . . .

    Oops."
    Fortunately, Strawberry let go pretty quickly. The squeeze was serious enough though that Grace's entire waist is just . . . narrower than it used to be. Noticeably so. As though Strawberry's hug had compressed Grace's waist in on itself. Grace coughs slightly, then holds up a finger in a 'one moment' sort of movement. She plugs her nose with a pinch of her fingers, and visibly tries to blow through it. You know how, if you do that for yourself, the pressure builds up in your ears and you stop doing it pretty quickly?
    Well the same sort of pressure builds up in Grace. Just that with a nearly audible 'pop', her waist just fills back out from the squeezing, and she looks perfectly back to normal.

    Expected her to blow into her thumb. Was disappointed.

    Fortunately, Strawberry comes from a world where extensive body modification is absolutely normal, so her initial scare subsides pretty quickly. At least Grace's squishiness doesn't appear to be magical in nature, riiiiight?
    Strawberry can't help herself but stare at Grace's waist, both in its compressed state and as it pops back into shape. "Oh, I'm okay, no worries!", she says as she snaps back into reality. "But- what... what was that? Are you a plastic bottle?" Look, she can even get herself to make a bad joke and smile a little.

    ((Imagine if Strawberry was somehow taller and could hug Grace properly and then her torso goes all Quasimodo.))

    Well. Probably not magical in nature. But it's hard to tell.
    "That's good, good. I'm glad you're okay.

    She blushes a bit -- it's a surprisingly pink blush --, and kicks at the sand a bit. "Iiiis why I've tried to avoid contact?"

    Your turn."
    [a plastic bottle full of goo, at least?]

    Strawberry is surprised, but not that surprised. There were fully amorphous creatures in her homeworld, and shortly before she had "left" it for the Nexus, a fully functional, amorphous body for humans had been unveiled. Also, she had seen other goo-people in the Nexus before, so she had kinda expected a more grave confession from Grace.
    "Is that it?" Immediately, Strawberry covers her mouth with her hand, realizing what she just said, before continuing. "I- I mean, really? You don't really look like- um... That's actually pretty cool! Right? Or, no, isn't it imprac... um... alright, my turn!" Being made of goo seems to be a pretty big deal for Grace, and the mermaid just said something really stupid, so she can't exactly answer with an easy little fact now. It'd have to be something more personal. She thinks for a moment, which seamlessly transitions into hesitation as she starts to blush a little.
    "Alright, umm... my breasts, they're actually bladders connected to my esophagus." She plugs her nose with a pinch of her fingers, and visibly tries to blow through it. You know how, if you do that for yourself, the pressure builds up in your ears and you stop doing it pretty quickly? Except that in Strawberry's case, neither her ears nor her waist pop, instead her breasts are literally inflating from B to FF. A change that's easily visible even under her body-concealing, loose-fit, beige dress. And that pinching nose thing wasn't really needed actually, she just wanted to imitate what Grace did. "You know, so you can fill them with air for extra buoyancy when carrying heavy load underwater, or fill them with water so you won't get thirsty if you're on dry land for long periods, or fill them with biodiesel so you have an internal food source for a week or so, or deflate them so you're more streamlined when swimming fast or so you can better crawl on land, or, I dunno, maybe the gene engineers just didn't want to leave female soldiers breastless..." When Strawberry finishes her embarrassing explanation, her face is pretty much as deep blue as the ocean, and she avoids eye contact. She's also fidgeting with her finger webbing, more than ever before.

    Strawberry is surprised, but not that surprised. There were fully amorphous creatures in her homeworld, and shortly before she had "left" it for the Nexus, a fully functional, amorphous body for humans had been unveiled. Also, she had seen other goo-people in the Nexus before, so she had kinda expected a more grave confession from Grace.
    "Is that it?" Immediately, Strawberry covers her mouth with her hand, realizing what she just said, before continuing. "I- I mean, really? You don't really look like- um... That's actually pretty cool! Right? Or, no, isn't it imprac... um... alright, my turn!" Being made of goo seems to be a pretty big deal for Grace, and the mermaid just said something really stupid, so she can't exactly answer with an easy little fact now. It'd have to be something more personal. She thinks for a moment, which seamlessly transitions into hesitation as she starts to blush a little.
    "Alright, umm... my breasts, they're actually bladders connected to my esophagus." She plugs her nose with a pinch of her fingers, and visibly tries to blow through it. You know how, if you do that for yourself, the pressure builds up in your ears and you stop doing it pretty quickly? Except that in Strawberry's case, neither her ears nor her waist pop, instead her breasts are literally inflating from B to FF. A change that's easily visible even under her body-concealing, loose-fit, beige dress. And that pinching nose thing wasn't really needed actually, she just wanted to imitate what Grace did. "You know, so you can fill them with air for extra buoyancy when carrying heavy load underwater, or fill them with water so you won't get thirsty if you're on dry land for long periods, or fill them with biodiesel so you have an internal food source for a week or so, or deflate them so you're more streamlined when swimming fast or so you can better crawl on land, or, I dunno, maybe the gene engineers just didn't want to leave female soldiers breastless..." When Strawberry finishes her embarrassing explanation, her face is pretty much as deep blue as the ocean, and she avoids eye contact. She's also fidgeting with her finger webbing, more than ever before.
    No Plastic here! Just pure goo-dness

    This was . . . well this was actually pretty nice. She had expected a lot worse. Heck, she was used to a lot worse. She had expected comments, possibly anger, poorly misunderstood ideas about her entire race, and straight up racism. This was . . . this was far better than she had expected.
    "I mean, I'd say a lot of things are impra-excusemewhatdidyousay?" Then she just falls silent, and watches Strawberry. Her eyes glance downwards a bit when Strawberry's dress shifts, but she manages to at least mostly maintain eye contact.
    "That-" Grace starts, before just breaking out in a really doofy grin, and giggling uncontrollably. She knows she shouldn't, but she's just so relieved. "I shouldn't giggle! I'm sorry! That's, well, that's uh. That's quite the party trick.

    But that's also pretty much exactly why I avoid the water. Instead of just,"
    She waves a hand vaguely. "It's more like. Everywhere.
    And I mean it. It makes sense. And thank you for trusting me to tell me that. I shouldn't giggle."

    [that's goo-d to hear]

    If Grace knew how much of that Strawberry has experienced as well. Turns out there's a lot of stereotypes and misconceptions about merfolk / engineered lifeforms / super soldiers.
    "Yeah, you shouldn't laugh!", she agrees and pouts a little. That pout doesn't last long, though, as she soon breaks into grinning and giggling herself. Though hers is more out of embarrassment."But I must admit it's hard not to." A hissing, slightly belchy sound escapes her gullet as her chest deflates back to B. "Might make for a good party trick, yes, although I'd rather not. I usually don't mention it to anyone, let alone demonstrate it. But you entrusted me with your secret too, so, yeah."
    Strawberry tries to change the subject to something less awkward. For her, at least. But being made of goo seems to be a touchy subject for Grace, so she should probably stick with easy, non-invasive questions.
    "Sooo does that maybe mean you kinda dissolve in water or something the like?"

    Grace coughs once, politely casting her gaze aside. "Anyway, um, yeah." She says, stammering just a little bit. She decides to focus on just the last bit, so to hopefully make things a bit less awkward for poor Strawberry. "I really don't. I just . . . act like a sponge. Just keep on absorbing more and more water. I hold together just fine. Just gets really awkward trying to explain why, say, I grew a foot in the last thirty or so seconds."

    Strawberry's eyes widen in surprise. "You grow extra body parts when you absorb water?" Words of a true metric user. "But then, how do you..." No, don't ask how Grace showers. "...uh, then, how come you, ummmm..." The mermaid is visibly at a loss of words, as she doesn't want to ask anything ignorant or insensitive now. "...does that mean that if you stay in water for a few minutes you become a giant? Or also that it won't hurt if you stub your toe on furniture? That sounds pretty cool actually."

    it was a joke plz, not even a goo-d one

    Grace blinks a few times, not entirely sure what Strawberry mea-OHRIGHTMETRIC. "Oh! You use metric? That's fine! Metric's great. I'll keep that in mind." Then she just watches, and starts to smile a bit. Grace tilts her head, her newly pink hair falling from one side of her face to the other. "You're absolutely welcome to ask whatever. I can see that you want to. Now that the cat's out of the bag, it's not a touchy subject any more. Just . . . it's broaching it that's difficult.

    So to answer your questions so far, yes. And yes. That is exactly why I avoid the water. It makes passing off as human pretty much impossible.
    Aaaaand yeah. That is also true. I don't have nerves like most people,"
    she admits, scratching at the back of her head, almost looking a bit embarrassed. "So. Um. Yeah. Yeah it just kinda smooshes my foot a bit. Which doesn't hurt at all, and is barely an inconvenience."

    I used to until it became less about skill and more about who has the most money. How about Munchkin? replies Harold.

    [Goo jokes are a squishy concept. My brain feels like slime, no goo-d jokes oozing out that I could fire back.]

    "Oooohhhh Imperial units, I should have known, sorry. I know Imperial measurements, it's just that my brain is entrenched so deep in metric, that, you know, yeah. In my home world, it's basically all metric. Just the United Kingdom still uses Imperial stuff." She makes a vague hand gesture that doesn't really mean anything.

    Strawberry's face clears up. "Ask whatever? Alrighty, will do!" She takes a deep breath. "How come you look exactly like a human? I've seen goo-people on TV before and met one or two, but they've all been really slimy and kinda translucent. And, sorry for getting so personal now but the curiosity is overwhelming me: how do you shower? Or bathe?"

    Strawberry chuckles a little. "Not feeling pain is quite convenient, I know! Consider yourself lucky about that." Then, her smile fades, the sun's light grows dim and grey, sad piano music starts playing and the camera slowly zooms in on the mermaid's grey, traumatized face. "I- I still remember it...", she quietly says, her voice cracking, her watery eyes staring at something impossibly far away. "...back then, how I stubbed my toe." Then everything instantly goes back to being a sunny day on the beach, and Strawberry is smiling once again.

She also lifts up her red (of course) tricorne hat, revealing definitely-not-natural bright blue hair, as well as a pair of cat ears atop her head. She also has a tail protruding from under her coattail.
    However, this description doesn't touch on a few things Fel has probably seen by now, such as her relatively small stature, and her dark blue eyes.

    Cherie shrugs. "I don't like to limit myself to any one discipline. For now, I go into the unknown as a red mage, but that could change as soon as tomorrow!" She chuckles. "A sorceress, though?
    I've never heard of that one, it must be of this world. What sorts of magic do you employ?"
