Bring on the retro sci-fi erotica vibe, and I'll just pretend to ignore the fact that nothing is explained other than the lead character telling us why (instead of how) everything just happens to be.
It's another planet, man. I guess I'm not smart enough to be told how the nanites work. They just rearrange stuffz. Golaz people are brilliant. So advanced, in fact, that they honor ancient lion-ish mating rituals and public sex marking instead of pesky unions requiring signatures and all of that nonsense.
I'm Joffrey Baratheon Storoth, and this is how it's always been done.
Think I'm kidding? I'm really not.
"The Golaz mature slowly."
Eva was put into statis (a sleeping state) for years because she had to wait for a kid to grow into a man. Well, technically, he was a man trapped in a kid's body, but yeah...she didn't want to be hooking up with a Joffrey impersonator.
OH, AND HE'S A LION SHIFTER. What this has to do with ANYTHING, I have no clue.
I honestly figured this short story had been written back in the glory days of erotic cheese. Ya'know...like a decade or two or maybe even three ago. Publish date 2010? Whoa there. Wet heat seeping and channels clenching?
Eh, the story was still kind of amusing, even with the chuckles and complete lack of explanation for the science-y stuff. I'd put this on par with a monster porn because it wasn't all that bad for a sci-fi/paranormal/wtf-ever Sleeping Beauty in Space retelling. With sex. And toe stroking.
And this : "And now you know why I called you squirt."
Why yes, that was an awkward sexual reference. You're welcome.
If I were Eva, I still would have cut a bitch over
But maybe I'm just a zero tolerance kind of gal like that.
