The little pink horns look cute. 🙂
I really hadn’t realized how much I missed Marah until recently. She looks so happy here!
This is so cute!

Sooo gotta ask. Can ya make a decent and safe living as a hooker in Yeld?
(The shit my mind gets curious about, I swear)
I guess it depends. Yeld is a dangerous place, and sex work is often a dangerous profession. Yeld may not have some of the in-built prejudices against sex workers that our world has, but its hard to imagine that its really safe either. It probably depends on the region and the people. Some sex workers in Yeld are probably part of traditions that go back a long way. Maybe in some parts of Yeld sex work is part of the Freelancer guilds, or is otherwise a respected job? Yeld is the kind of place where some people live lives that are just fine, comfortable and safe, but most people don’t and have to worry about getting eaten by monsters, havening their home burned down by occupying armies or getting turned inside out by wild magic. Plus, a lot of people just live so far out in the middle of nowhere that they never see anyone outside their own town, and when something bad happens in their town it can easily just kill everyone. So maybe being a sex worker isn’t much more dangerous than being a baker in some parts of Yeld.
Sex work is mainly dangerous as a direct result of being heavily criminalized. Thugs of all stripes (the overwhelming majority being the uniform-wearing variety) feel free to bully, rob, rap, murder, etc sex workers because they have no rights and as “criminals” their testimony is usually disregarded before they even open their mouths assuming they’re given a chance to at all.
Basically, if what passes for government in Yeld hasn’t given its enforcement arm free license to terrorize sex workers without any fear of consequences, then sex work would be no more dangerous here than being a massage therapist.
But do they have blackjack?
They have Ratscrew, which is more fun.
Do they even have professional rugby in Yeld?
Sportsball has hookers probably.

Marah: (backs away slowly, without saying another word).
Armless sailor: “Seems like today is not that day; only smart girls around here. Good.”
