This is the first of a series of stories I’m throwing together whenever I’m in the mood. I still haven’t decided what my next game will be, but I’m interested in carrying on with Ariane and Rachel, and adding a bit of sci-fi tech to the mix.
Note: If Ariane and Rachel look a little different than usual, it is because I’m using La Femme as a base model instead of Vicky 4.
Our story begins with Ariane and Rachel discussing moving in together now that Rachel is out of college and has quit modeling…
Rachel: So what do you think?
Ariane: It’s nice, but it means living under the same roof as my mom.
Rachel: Ellison Tower is a huge building, I doubt you’ll even see her very often.
Ariane: I’m just wondering why we can’t move into my house. There is no pool here.
Rachel: The pool is expensive to upkeep, and you can only use it half the year. This place is bigger than your house. We can even bring the hot tub.
Ariane: I’m also closer to work, living here would save me a lot of money, and I really love this furniture.
Rachel: This is a model suite, we won’t have this furniture, but we both have furniture we can bring.
Ariane: Yeah, I guess. At least the view is spectacular.
Rachel: We won’t have that either. This is model suite is on the 23rd floor. If we take it, our suite will be on the 5th floor.
Ariane: So our view will be…?
Rachel: A parking garage.
Ariane: Can I run around naked and give the parking lot patrons a show?
Rachel: Sure but the glass is one way so they won’t see you. This is high tech glass that traps solar energy and generates electricity. It also has a TLCD coating.
Ariane: What’s that?
Rachel: Transparent Liquid Crystal Display, similar to color e-paper.
(Rachel does something with her phone and suddenly the Pirate’s Cove from Duquesne appears in the windows.)
Ariane: The window is a video screen?
Rachel: It can display pictures, it is slow to refresh, so it can’t do video.
Ariane: So if we don’t like looking at the parking lot we can change the view? Neat! Do the walls do the same thing?
Rachel: No just the glass.
Ariane: So I can paint the walls another color?
Rachel: That’s right, you are not a fan of white walls. Sure, as long as I can hang my photos on them.
Ariane: Deal, let’s do this!
