Here's a story about a husband who comes home after a week away to find that his wife and her friend have been playing with a magic T-shirt, and have a plot in mind.

This one was commissioned by  IrateLiterate, who wanted me to do another take on the "Pregnant Pause" T-shirt McGuffin from one of my Misc Scenes (and the beaddventure). I'd been meaning to revisit that for a bit, so I was happy to write this one.

love it! this went in a direction i wasn't expecting. i LOVE the weird "semantic" stuff that can come up in unbirth stories, and the weirdness of a woman basically giving birth to herself is up there with a daughter becoming her mother's mother for this crazy-awesome stuff

Thanks! The weirdness of the idea was one of the things that attracted me to the story concept when IrateLiterate pitched it to me.

This is "weird" in that it's magical and specific, but I like the idea of the zero-sum game being an unbirth device: "borrowing" a soul from the future meaning that the debt has to be repaid by somebody else.

A common thread you and I seem to write about is a budding lesbian romance that somehow depends on a man in order to fully consummate, where he's consumed in the process (often in order for the women to produce offspring). There's something appealing about it: strong women, powerful love, and a loving (if sometimes unwilling) and intimate sacrifice. It's all about connections and what we would give up for somebody that we care about.

Nicely done as always!
