A Citizen’s Life

Sooo, Crissy met Potato after her Ring Toss photo shoot, as she asked Crissy to build an Anti-G Device, so they could fly. They quickly became good friends and this evening they planned a girls‘ night!
They decided to make a sleepover, which took place on Crissy’s flat as Conway is currently living in Potato’s house and they didn’t want someone overhearing their conversations.
They ate a lot and talked a ton, and after some fish drinks true feeling came to light…
Crissy: “ So who was that guy in the photo shoot?“
Potato: “ Ummm… he was… my…. childhood friend… but now, he’s… SO I saw you flying the other day with someone who is she??? Is she your CRUSH??“
Crissy (instant blushing): „Err … Paula? … No … I mean … yes … no … perhaps …“
Potato: „Oohhh Paula… cute name! You make a nice couple! Do you plan on confessing??
Crissy (going full tomato mode): „Con… err … no … umm …“ (mumbling around) „Just a customer … don’t know … don’t think … isn’t interested in me …“
Zepppelin Night Ride
„Girl, you are in love!! And I’m going to help you out!“, Potato’s words from the sleepover still were echoing in Crissy’s head the next day. „Okay, it’s decided, we are going to a double date. We are going to get you a girlfriend!“
Everything was going faster than Crissy ever had expected or even planned. She actually had been too overwhelmed even to object. Now she was standing in front of Paula and stammered along her lines:
„Err … uhm … I got free tickets for a Zeppelin Night Ride … for two … perhaps … uhm … you want to join? … With some friends? … There is a gallery from which you can watch the engines, they have self-playing insturments … err … and they offer Jetbike Rides!“
There also would be a dance but Crissy didn’t dare to mention it, she was blushing red enough as it was.
„Huh, with friends?“
„Potato and Conway?“
„Her … err … her boyfriend …“
„Oh, I see … Jetbike rides, you say? Count me in! – When?“
„Err … today evening? It’s overnight, we will be back tomor…“
„You’re hot, Coralhead.“
„Your ears are gleaming … see you later, Sweetie.“
And later … everything was going faster than Crissy ever had imagined.

Crissy’s pets are water bears. They usually are not bigger in size than one millimeter. Therefore, Crissy constructed a mechanical water bear so she can take them for a walk, equipped with a projectoscope to watch them living their little water bear lives. Every so often she has to feed them algae, of course.
Some time ago somebody joked around about drawing our Arcryla City OCs in „hot“ poses. Additionally, I thought of painting Crissy at work for some time. So I combined them. It was quite an exercice in anatomy and it took me right out of my comfort zone.
After a hard morning’s work in the mechanical entrails of Arcryla City, Crissy sat down for a lunch break. But wherever there is a screw to tighten, Crissy will fix it and even forget about her cheese lettuce tomato egg and mayonnaise sandwich.
