Welcome to VHV: A webcomic where the author likes fluff so much he decides to make a beast
that is pretty much ALL fluff... With unusual access point!
Common adventurer sense tells you not to ever let anything eat you, but it also tells you that it's okay if you fail in that regard.
You can live on with a piece missing, or in Sam's case at the beginning of the story, you can make your way back out of a nasty
loud purple lizard if you need to. In fact, being ingested in totality is a pretty regular thing among adventurers, though you won't
hear it on the brochures.
An experienced adventurer will tell you any particular creature's innards have a bizarrely wide range of comfort, and while
most simply err on the low end at “worrisome and icky”, Rose is definitely on the high end of that scale. “fur all the way down”
rings true for her species as she does not have a true stomach. All digestion is conducted with low level thaumic
transmutation triggered at will to save on energy. She cannot taste and can only smell things about as well as the weak human
nose, so her palette isn't exactly refined. However, her species do find their furry tums useful for carrying things generally not
moving, and in a pinch can warm someone up without the need to cut a large hole in a freshly dead monster. Hence their
(“Fur-bag” as a name was tested by one scientist early on but quickly put to a stop by his peers- Not because of the potential
offense, but due to the inaccuracy of comparing a vestigial, re-purposed digestive system to a bag of any sort)
Rose, of course, has to live with an embis high on cuddly-ness. So despite her preferences, she often has to put up with her
friend entering her "inner sanctum" to indeed take a nap as Edrin theorizes. A furtum gets used to it though.
I was worried about adding Rose to my story for a while until I realized that I've drawn similarly weird already without worry-
Butter's pouch and Aloene's everything, for example. Also, this universe has sentient sadistic bipedal mushrooms, so I think
I'm in the clear.
Demitia can still be uncomfortable, of course... But she has had no experience with Rose, unlike myself.
