<div class="meta">you start off investigating a murder. there's a lot of violence. there will be bad endings where you get killed.\n\nalso, the game is all about a city experiencing social upheaval and unrest due to a plague that's been spreading unchecked for ages. it turns out this was shockingly prescient for world events, given that i started outlining this in january/february. so this probably won't really take your mind off COVID-19, especially when the game gets into the cases that are more specifically about the beast plague itself.\n\n''this game contains sexual content!'' you play as a male character, and all the sex (so far) is with werewolf/beastmen characters. no player-centric sex scenes are obligatory.\n\nyou can have sex with some assholes. specifically, this is a detective game. you can fuck people of interest, which means both sometimes you might be fucking somebody who's a serial killer or some other unsavory character and you might not know it yet, and also you can fuck characters who presumably wouldn't want to fuck you if they knew you were investigating them.\n\nin terms of sexual content, currently the game contains:\n* sex in public\n* humans with dog dicks\n* knotting\n* animal behavior during sex (ass-to-ass knotting, drooling, barking, etc)\n* huge loads\n* gross monster cum\nthese notes will expand as more content is added.\n\n[[<=|Start]]</div>

There's been a break in the case.\n\nVarious members of the Kings of Kane Street and Red Street Regents, two street gangs with aspirations of being allied with the Royals, have been turning up dead. Each of the victims have been beasts, and all looking overpowered, bodily torn apart by claws.\n\nThere's been a rumor of a hidden hunter: one who wears a leather beast mask and fights with false claws forged from star-metal. This <<clue "beast-masked hunter">> has been picking off the gangs one by one. The going theory is this is sending a message to the Royals, or maybe the hunter working his way through the lesser gangs before trying bigger fry. The gangs are out for vengeance, and the Royals -- though they would never show it -- are undoubtedly getting uneasy.\n\nThere have been aspirants, beast and human alike, looking for the hunter for months: for revenge, to offer up his head to the Royals for protection, or for their own unknown motives. You're one of the latter.\n\nLast night there was an altercation in the undermarket. There's a new dead beast. You're not sure who, but there's a different buzz. <<clue "There's something different about this latest victim">>, though you don't know what, yet.\n\n<<set $bmh_active to true>>\\n<<grantTopic "the beast-masked hunter" "persons">>\n<<grantTopic "the beast-masked hunter's latest victim" "persons">>\n<<grantTopic "the latest killing by the beast-masked hunter" "events">>

<<if mapData[$_pos].name === "Where Rats Drowned" && $bank === "north">>\\nYou look at the flagstones. There's still a red-brown stain where Mikhael was killed, and then a smear going to the west that cuts off abruptly, which might be the trail from when his body was removed. It's hard to say if there's anything to be gleaned from this.\n\n[[<=|map]]\n<<else if mapData[$_pos].name === "Where Rats Drowned" && $bank === "south">>\\nYou spend some time looking at the site of the murder from across the street.

There are scuff marks on the walls that could be claws; some are still fresh. There are loose flagstones; they could have been dislodged recently.

Loose flagstones could be anything.\n\n[[<=|map]]\n<<else if mapData[$_pos].name === "Sewer of Ravenous Rats">>\\nThere are scuff marks across the walls, old grime recently scraped away. There's a dark splatter of blood.

It takes scraping metal or leather to leave marks at all similar.\n\n[[<=|map]]\n<<else if mapData[$_pos].name === "The Deep Way">>\\n<<display "bmh hideout">>\n<<else>>\\nYou spend some time checking out the area, but don't find anything relevant.\n\n[[<=|map]]\n<<endif>>
You check several of the unbarred grates. It's a minute's walk down a pitch-black tunnel, only to end at the bottom of a dropshaft. You suppose it's possible for someone to scale them, but not likely.\n\nThe fourth one you check is the jackpot. There's a rubble of fallen bricks, and the rubble is still fresh -- your fingers come back stained red with the powder, not yet soaked and washed away from the dampness of the sewers. There's a hole in the passageway, large enough for a man or beast to walk through, and past that, there's a dark passage with a flickering light at the end, past a corner.\n\n<<set $secretExits['deepway'] to true>>\\n<<set $bmh_investigate to false>>\\n[[=>|map]]
You consider.\n\nIf Mikhael was searching the undercity for the beast-masked hunter, and found this workshop, and the ensuing brawl brought them back up into the undermarket...\n\n...or if the beast-masked hunter captured Mikhael and brought him down here, still alive, only for Mikhael to escape and work his way to the surface...\n\n...either way, that would certainly explain everything. This is a secret the beast-masked hunter would be willing to kill to keep hidden.\n\nIt hadn't occurred to you before, but it's possible that the beast-masked hunter tans the hide of his prey and works them into his as masks. The corpses show up flayed, and if he's snatching a strip or two of hide from them, who can say in the mess. Or perhaps it's more terrestrial leather; far be it from you to speculate.\n\nThere's a prickle up your spine. You turn, and find [[a figure blocking the exit|bmh confrontation]].
It's the beast-masked hunter. He is, in fact, wearing a mask: a wolf-head mask, made from broad strips of black leather, woven together, with rivets along the seams. His eyes gleam, luminous yellow slivers in the dark pits of the mask.\n\nHe's not much taller than you: humanoid; a little rangy, rather than muscled; with a spray of curly red-orange hair bursting out from the back of his mask. He's got a pair of metal claws clasped in his hands, shaped like beast's claws: the fabled starmetal claws he uses against the beasts. They look like black iron to you. It seems impossible that he could generate the force required to claw through Mikhael's body, just, a question of physical strength and human limbs.\n\nHe's more than a little battered. His clothes, a workman's outfit of overalls and a heavy jacket -- maybe a leatherworker after all -- are ragged at the seams, and several have split entirely, making his outfit half-rags. One of his sleeves has been torn open, and it's drenched in blackened blood.\n\n<<dialog "Little vermin come to scurry where they're not wanted.">>\\n\\nHis voice is an animal's rasp.\n\nIf he killed Mikhael, you're no threat at all.

He tilts his head to the side.\n\n<<autoresponse "You probably got time!">>\\n\nYou say it a little defensively.\n\nHe makes a rough, rasping noise from under the mask; it takes you a moment to realize he's laughing.\n\n<<dialog "Hunting for more than my hideout, aren't you?" "Beast-Masked Hunter">>\\n\nHe exhales; in the chill sewer air, his overheated breath billows out under his mask as a fog. He stalks forward: different than his threatening posturing from earlier, and not just because he tosses his metal claws aside.\n\n<<dialog "Sure. Let's fuck." "Beast-Masked Hunter">>\\n\nHis eyes gleam behind his mask, catching the light red-green. He pins you to the wall, grip iron-hard. This is, after all, the man who tore Mikhael apart with his bare hands. His body is all lean, hard muscle under his clothes, unnaturally hot as he presses your bodies together.\n\n<<autoresponse "That's a little--">>\\n\nHe shifts a thigh between your legs, grinding up against your balls. You cut off with a sharp exhale.\n\n<<autoresponse "That's a little abrupt, huh?">>\\n\nHe laughs against your shoulder, shrugging off his jacket, leaving him in his dark overalls and undershirt. His arms are covered in freckles, so many and so thick they dapple across the backs of his arms and spread across his shoulders, and the red hair across his forearms is thick and dark.\n\n<<dialog "You're the one who offered." "Beast-Masked Hunter">>\\n\nHe shoves his mask up, leather muzzle askew, revealing a stubbled jaw and scarred lips, pulled back to reveal his teeth. He's got two sets of canines. He scrapes his jaw up across your throat, fangs leaving stinging lines, and wetly sucks at your Adam's apple. There's a flush all down your body, skin prickling, cock thickening in your pants. You can feel the hard line of-- his sheath; he has a sheath-- press against your stomach. He repositions himself, unbuckling something, loosening his rough overalls, and his slow humps get a lot more drag with loose fabric shifting between you.\n\nIf the Beast-masked Hunter is half-beast himself, that answers a lot of questions about how he managed to fight against beasts. His animal cock knifes up against his undershirt, seeping pre onto the fabric, and he reaches down and gropes your crotch, fingers curling back against your balls, palm grinding down against your shaft. You let out a reedy moan, rutting into his touch, rolling your hips up against his. You reach up and tug at the straps of his overalls, shoving them off his shoulders, and his pants are dragged down an inch lower by the heavy material, straining around his sheath. You slide your arm down between you, pushing into the confines of his pants: hot, slightly sweat-damp, his fur thick and curly as you curl your hand around his sheath, stroking it along his unsheathing cock. He moans into your throat, biting up your neck to your jaw, and hungrily kisses you as you stroke him off. He tugs at the hem of your shirt, pulling back to drag it over your head, hands sliding down your chest to rub against the plane of your stomach, his slightly-pointed fingernails dipping under the waist of your pants.\n\nHis dick spurts pre all across the back of your hand, unsheathing in jackrabbit jerks, and he shoves his undershirt up and his pants down, cock jolting out into the open. His sheath is framed in a shaggy spray of tawny red-orange fur, cock itself blood-red as it juts up from his crotch, bloated and heavy. His balls loll beneath, bouncing off his thighs before drooping down lower, shaggy skin stretched out around a pair of heavy, fist-sized balls. His cock, only unsheathed a handspan, burbles out a messy cord of pre down his length, making the red flesh glimmer in the dim light. You curl your hand back around it with a wet squelch, oily heat smearing across your palm as you stroke, and he dips his hand into your pants, curling his hand around your erect cock, stroking you slowly as he pulls your pants down to mid-thigh, baring your cock as well.\n\nHe humps against you, cocks sliding together, his bestial length slowly lurching further and further from his fat sheath until it spans up his tightly-defined stomach, pointed tip digging against the underside of his pectorals. You play with the tip, a rubbery spur slick and wet with his rich, rank-smelling pre, squelching across your hand as you slop your fingers across the curve of his cocktip. Your own cock, big for a human but still //human//, butts up against the bloated middle of his shaft, loose flesh becoming slick and frictionless with his own copious pre. Your thrusts drag against each other, cocks slipping along a slimy trough pinned between you, his loose grip adding just enough friction to send sparks of pleasure rippling through you. His kisses you hungrily, fangs digging into your lips, tongue heavy as he shoves it into your mouth, gurgling out a feral growl as he humps you like an animal, cock gushing sloppy spurts of pre over your entire chest, drizzling down to coat his already-slathered shaft.\n\nHe makes a soft, needy sound when you break the kiss, mouth open, his lips just as bruised as your own. You give his cock a final stroke, from the tip all the down to the base, knot still a turgid lump within his sheath, and sink down to your knees before him, letting his cock smear all the way up your chest until it smacks you in the chin, lurching across your face to rest, heavily, right between your brows. Its smell is like getting punched in the face: rank and meaty, spicy, and so potent it stings when you inhale, making your eyes water and your mouth drool uncontrollably. He croons above you, face still half-obscured by the mask, but his mouth open, slavering as he stares down at you.\n\nYou lick across the underside of his cock, catching a slobbery mess of frothy, churned-up pre across your tongue, and struggle to swallow it, burning like liqueur down your throat. His cock twitches, smacking solidly across your face and spewing out a rope of pre that splatters across /%{your hair}%/your hair, oozing down over one eyebrow. You squint as you tilt your head up, slobbering all across the underside of his cock, sliding up his shaft until you can suck the tip into your mouth. You stroke the rest of his shaft, playing with his sheath, and he lets out a buzzing groan, sloppy strings of drool spilling over his lips to splatter down across your face, his bestial slobber just as acrid as his pre. He humps your face, hands gripping your head, less trying to fuck your mouth and more rubbing his cock all over it, working the slimy mess coating his shaft into your skin until you're glazed. Your lips are already bruised, stinging with bitemarks from his fangs, and they burn more as you open wide to catch his shaft between your lips, tongue lapping across his vividly-red flesh.\n\nYour cock, hard and still glazed with the same frothy mess coating his shaft, almost accidentally glances against his calf, grinding over the ankle of his boot, and a shockingly loud groan rips its way up your throat as you press down, cock dragging against the stiff leather. He obligingly shifts his leg, letting you hump against his leg. He's breathing hard, drool continually bubbling over his lips and spilling down all over you in stringy lines, drenching you in slobber and pre. He drags a hand across your face, obscuring your vision under a layer of slimy whorls, smeared up your cheeks and over your eyebrows, and then insistently shoves his fingers into your mouth, letting you lap up the frothy slurry. You groan around his fingers, throat buzzing, and that's what finally gets his knot to surface, pushing its way out of his sheath with a meaty //pop//, bulky and fist-sized even mostly soft. You suck across its curves, tongue tracing the gristled seams where its fat chambers meet with the rest of his shaft, and all the while his cock is jutting straight up, streamers of pre webbing across your /%{hair}%/hair, sluicing down your face, hanging in a line of jiggling cords across your jaw. His pre is almost jelly-like, churning up into a mess of greyish bubbles, coating your mouth and throat and making the act of swallowing strange and frictionless.\n\nYou worship his knot, hands sliding up to play with his shaft as you kiss and suck across its bulk, lips spreading across the dark red flesh with a //squelch//, pulling free with a lewd //pop//, leaving you to lap across the churned-up mess you've left behind, gulping down his frothy pre until his knot is dully shining. He groans, hand on the back of your head, guiding you on as you shove your tongue into his sheath or vainly strain your lips to suck his entire knot into your mouth.\n\nDizzily, you feel your own orgasm approach -- cock sliding across his legs, the drag of the heavy fabric and the slick slide of his leather boots -- and you moan, eyes shut, just focusing on the heavy weight of his cock across your face, of the throb of his knot like a heart, how you can feel his pulse through your lips, spread out across his bloated flesh. You let out a keening whine, almost sobbing as you hunch forward, cock slick with pre, each thrust bringing you closer, closer, closer, until you finally cum with a groan, painting messy streaks all up his pant leg as you grind your slick, slippery cockhead against a fold in the fabric.\n\nYou suckle across his knot the whole time, its weight a continual reminder, and the sight when you open your eyes -- squinting through one, with a web of slime dragging against your eyelashes -- makes your cock lurch and spurt again. The Beast-masked Hunter is above you, his knot in your mouth, lean muscular body wet with sweat and shaking from the force of his panting breaths. He's hunched forward, mouth open, fangs on display, drooling down across your body, webbing you together with streams of bestial slobber.\n\nHis knot throbs against your mouth, cock squirting pre onto the wall behind you, and he snarls deep in his chest as he draws back, thrusts forward, sliding his monstrous shaft across your bruised lips once, twice, a third time all the way down to the knot, before he lets out a howl and cums, cock erupting with the force of a cannon, spraying a sharp blast of cum point-blank against the wall behind you, making its backsplash spray everywhere. You curl your hands around his shaft, stroking it as you aim it down, making sure his next shots catch you full in the face, rubbery and thick burbling over your lips, swilling in the bottom of your mouth. You smear some of the mess down his shaft, squelching around his knot, and his snarl, never quite died-down, raises up into a buzzsaw roar as his bloated knot beats hard between your hands, almost too-hot to touch, disproportionately huge even on his bestial cock. He drenches your face in gush after gush of thick grey beast cum, tethering you solidly together with the finger-thick ropes clinging tight across your skin, again and again in slimy layers until the semisolid mass finally starts drooling down your face in murky sheets.\n\nHe drags his hands across your face on the way to wrapping them around his cock, all four of your hands together nearly enough to cover his shaft, and you provide a slick, clenching tunnel for him to fuck, spewing out his slimy load all over your face each time he bottoms out, making a drenched, dripping tunnel that spills cords of cum all down your forearms, dripping from your elbows.\n\nHis cock keeps spurting for minutes, pulse after pulse of cum splattering against you until you entirely lose the reflex to jerk back with each splatter, just letting him paint your face, your chest, the wall behind you, with cum. When his pulses finally slow, it turns into a soupy mess drooling out, pissing out the dregs of his load in a wet pile across the crown of your head, oozing down through your slathered hair to cut, slimy and wet, thought the half-dried mess.\n\nHe pulls back, cock still bobbing before him, and the ropes of slimy cum painted across your face are still tethered to him -- they crawl over your skin like enormous slugs, stretching out between you in fat, swaying strands.\n\n<<dialog "'s been a while. I really needed that." "Beast-Masked Hunter">>\\n\nHe looks down at you -- you assume, eyes caked with cum, knees squelching in the churned-up puddle he left behind. You wave a hand between you, dragging out the cords, some of them squirming off your face and slapping across your forearm. His grin is lopsided, showing off his fangs.\n\n<<dialog "I'll be sure to return the favor when I see you again."

He takes you up the stairs and down the hallway to the room with the "<<clue "II" "npc_alexi" "alexi staying in room #2 at last hope hall">>" placard. He unlocks the door and pulls you inside.\n\nHis rooms are fairly bare: a spill of clothes from the open wardrobe, and some papers on the desk, and a bed with crumpled sheets. There's a small window beside the bed that looks out over the lower roof. <<if getConvVar ("name")>>Alexi<<else>>The factoryworker<<endif>> looms in front of you, pushing you back against the door as he closes it.\n\nHe stoops down, pushing his mouth against your neck, and snuffles across your skin, lips parting to let his fangs rasp across your throat.\n\n<<dialog "Gonna enjoy wrecking you.">>\n\nHe snarls across your throat, his breath catching when you tilt you head up to give him better access. His tongue unfurls from his mouth, heavy and wet digging into the flesh of your throat as he laves across your skin, a hungry buzz building in his throat. His hands curl around your forearms, pinning you back against the door with his wiry, inhuman beast's strength. He practically envelops you in his lanky body, his long limbs folding down to wrap around you: his knees bracketing your thighs, elbows pressed to your shoulders, forearms long spars down your sides. He fists a hand into the fabric of his shirt and tears it apart with a single jerk, sending scraps of fabric draping across his chest as he tosses it aside. You take the opportunity to strip out of your shirt and toss it aside before he can tear it apart too, leaving you both bare-chested.\n\n<<if getConvVar ("name")>>Alexi's<<else>>His<<endif>> core looks human: body lean and muscular, tightly toned, but still human, with only a scarce dusting of grey-blond hair across his chest and down his stomach. Only two nipples. His sheath makes an unmistakable bulge in his trousers, blocky and heavy when he grinds your bodies together, filling the air with the rank smell of beast. His claws slide across your chest, feeling the slope of your muscles, your nipples, pebbled in the air. He scrapes the edge of his claw over your peaked nipple, and you let out a sharp breath at the sensation; he lets out a bestial snarl, pulling you tight against his chest, and ruts his hips, sliding the fattening mound of his sheath against your stomach, cock stiff as it smacks against you. You slide your hands down, fingers curling on the waist of his pants, thumbs sliding across the rope tie of his belt, back and forth over the pale hair of his stomach. His muscles convulse under your touch, his entire body spasming, and he snarls again, cock pulsing and staining the front of his pants with his thick, slimy precum.\n\nHe practically hurls you across the room: twisting fast and pushing you backwards, your feet stumbling on the floorboards until you hit the bedframe and topple backwards. You tug on the laces of your pants, letting them sag lower on your hips. He looms over you: eyes gleaming, lips pulled back, slavering, his cock stabbing at the front of his pants. He tears them off just as easily, leaving only a wet shred of fabric draped over his cock until he plucks that off too, leaving him totally naked. His forearms and calves are the most transformed -- long animal limbs, coated in stiff white-grey fur that tapers out up his biceps and thighs. And then, framed neatly in a tangle of hair between his thighs, is his beast cock: lopsided balls each the size of a fist, with the bone-white spar of his cock pushing out from his leathery sheath. He lurches forward, pinning you down, drooling across your face and neck, and his cock unsheathes wetly between you, wetly burbling up across your stomach. Only the tip is white; it mottles pale pink past that, with only a few white splotches past that. He gets worked-up easily; his knot grinds against your thigh, still beneath his sheath, but as he keeps humping against you it steadily works its way up, more and more of his cock unsheathing in fits and jerks until his knot pops out into the open, flesh ash pink with deep, dark purple veins mazed across its surface, winding their way down to the root of his cock.\n\nYou rut together like animals: his thrusts work down your pants until your cock grinds against the stiff fur of his sheath. You wrap your hands across his back, groaning into his shoulder as he snarls and drools, tongue flopping from his mouth and smearing frothy drool all up your neck and the side of your face. His cock is a brutal skewer: long and thin -- not quite as thick as your wrist -- with a sharply-pointed tip that shudders and ripples. He drools out thin, acrid precum across your chest, dousing you with the rank, animal smell, hungrily chewing across your neck as he humps you in wet strokes, lathering up his pre into waves of opaque sludge.\n\nHe pulls back, cock webbed to your stomach with thick, grimy lines of pre, slithering over your skin as it pulses. He strokes himself, catching the slathered mess across one hand and then smearing it back across your chest.\n\n<<dialog "I'm gonna fuck you hard.">>\n\nHe raises your left leg -- you kick your foot out of your pants, now pooled at your ankles -- and licks a slobbery stripe from your knee across your calves, matting down your hair. He uses his other hand to slide between your thighs, claws prickling across the curve of your ass, to rub across your asshole. His fingers are still slick with pre, and he slides his claws back and forth, smearing it all against your hole. He draws back, cock an enormous poker hanging off his body, and he stabs forward, tip glancing off your balls, sliding between your thighs, skewing against your cheeks. He lets out another burst of stringy pre, glazing your skin with his rank slime, and he fucks through that, churning it up into grimy dollops, pushing the mess into your asshole. He fucks you open, cocktip stabbing inside and immediately pulling back, spreading you enough for the next gush of pre to splatter shockingly deep inside you: wet and hot, slick oozing out over your asshole, and he fucks in again, gushing inside you.\n\nYou let out a hoarse groan, and he takes both your legs in hand and folds you double, getting a clear view of your ass as he sinks his bestial cock into you. He mounts the bed, one clawed paw digging into the frame for leverage, body a mass of twisted limbs above you, mouth split open into an impossibly-wide grin as he bears down harder. He snarls from deep in his chest, cock squelching and slurping inside you as he carves your asshole open, and you groan and clasp at his forearms, going bug-eyed as he sinks into your guts. He croons, gurgling around his lolling tongue as he stares down at you, watching your face change as he stabs deeper, pulls back, stirs his cock around inside. Your guts warp around his shaft, clinging tight, each thrust knocking the breath from your lungs, and you whine, asshole clenching and grasping his shaft as he slides deeper. Pre gurgles inside you, squirting out around his pumping shaft.\n\nYou arch your back and push down, opening yourself so that his next thrust slides deeper than either of you were expecting: nearly the full length of his cock stabbing deep into your guts, making your stomach swell out with the length of his cock, his knot smacking hard against your cheeks as he almost bottoms out inside you. He groans, hunching over you, humping you like a dog: cock ripping out and plunging back in, knot spanking your cheeks in an obscene wet tattoo. He's so deep that when he spurts pre you only feel it as a diffuse pressure, wet and heavy slickly pouring inside you, churning up with his thrusts into a sloppy lather. Cords of slimy pre web across his knot, squelching against your dripping ass as he mashes down and then spooling out again when he draws back.\n\nHe grinds his knot against your hole, pressing its beating swell against your bloated lips in an obscene kiss. Pre burbles out of you around the huge crest, drizzling down the slathered crack of your ass, and he flexes, watching as his cock lurches in your guts, sending the long bulge of his cock twisting inside you. He beats his knot against your hole, watching as you whine and squirm, asshole flexing open in shuddering jerks. When he pulls back you feel hollowed out: guts empty, hole gaping, only to be filled aching when he shoves back in. The heavy, curving walls of his knot slop against your gaping hole, halfway slipping in only to be yanked back out again, over and over until your hole is a shuddering, pulsing mess, vainly trying to clench around his knot as he batters it into you. He finally leans down, tongue slobbering all across your face, shoving into your open mouth, and bears down hard: claws tense on your arm, cock jerking hard inside you, as his knot scrapes its way through your tight passage, popping inside you with a sudden lurch and a blossoming of heat. You moan around his tongue, gurgling as you gulp down his frothy drool, and he settles atop you, sinking his knot into your guts. His sheath grinds against your broken hole, leathery skin folding up into a dense mass, and he cums almost as an afterthought: knot hardening, cock twitching rhythmically. He floods your guts, his cum gurgling deeper into your plugged guts, and he sloppily makes out with you, licking your face, slavering across your jaw, as he stirs his knot around inside you. You groan, straightening to lessen the pressure against your flooded guts, and the movement sends his load swirling deeper, audibly sloshing as heat blooms deep inside you. You huff for breath around his tongue, whining into his mouth, and he purrs in response, chest buzzing as he dumps his load inside you, pulse after pulse flooding you until you ache with fullness.\n\nEventually he slumps to the side, enveloping you in his limbs, keeping you seated tight on his pulsing knot as his cock starts steadily pouring into you, pissing out beast cum into your guts. His balls squirm against the backs of your thighs. Your stomach swells slowly, cum gurgling deeper, flooding you until you look pregnant: belly enormous, its heat radating through your entire body, making you flushed and sweaty. His claw strokes over your stomach, digging in hard enough to knock the breath from your lungs, and he laughs lowly against your shoulder as he makes a game of it: palm outstretched across your great wobbling belly, grinding down hard, his cock pulsing sharply inside you every time you gasp and wheeze.\n\nThe dusk light has faded considerably by the time his knot starts to soften. Cum leaks around the loosening seal, squirting out into his sheets when he bears down, and he kneads your belly with both hands, forcing sloppy squirts of cum out around his turgid knot, grinding down so deeply you think you'll have big handprint bruises all across your stomach. He wrenches his knot out with an explosion of watery cum, only to grind it back against your bruised, broken hole, forcing it back inside with a wrench that makes your entire body spasm. He sluggishly knotfucks you with his shrinking knot, stemming the flow of cum only to pop his slippery knot out again with an enormous gush, over and over until you can see the shifting swell of his cock inside you again. His sheets are soaked and dripping, mattress sodden, by the time he pulls himself entirely free, leaving your broken, cratered hole only sluggishly oozing a sloppy waterfall of churned-up beast cum.\n\nYou take gasping gulps of breath, entire body drenched in sweat. He idly strokes his cock, milking his knot, burbling out a slimy mess of greyish cum across your side.\n\n<<dialog "That was real nice, but you should probably get going now.">>\n\nHe nuzzles you from behind.\n\n<<dialog "You're a good lay.">>\n\nYou drag yourself to your feet -- cum winding its way down your thighs, hole feeling like an enormous bruise between your cheeks, swollen and scraping over itself -- and try to take a few wobbly steps. You clean yourself up as well as you can manage with his sheets; he doesn't seem to mind the mess: he stays sprawled out on his ruined mattress, body slathered with his load.\n\nYou get dressed, hissing in pain when you have to bend down to pull your pants up. Your skin is still tacky with cum, fresh cum still leaking from your wrecked ass, as you pull your clothes on and stagger to the door. Outside, you have to lean against the wall and take a few deep, gasping breaths before you can keep walking.\n<<sex "young factoryworker" "anal" "top">>\\n\n[[=>|map]]

He slides his fingers beneath, curly hair crinkling under his fingertips, and his sheath lurches as he digs into the soft, heavy flesh.\n\nHe tugs his pants open, baring himself to you. His sheath lolls out, fat and heavy between his thighs, its round lip bulging and heavy, the flesh within darker, shining wetly in the undercity light. His balls are large enough to catch the fabric of his pants, draping across them in folds that do little to hide their bulk, hanging most of the way to his knees. The coarse hair across his chest and stomach thickens into a pelt, framing his sheath with a spray of tightly-coiled fur, bursting out in tufts between his fingers as he jacks off his sheath, letting you see the swelling bulk of his cock, still sunk entirely within.\n<<set alterConvVar ("fucked", x => true)>>\\n\n<div class="responses"><<plegend>>\\n[[Can't wait to get that in my mouth...|bestial dockworker barrels bj full scene]]\n[[You wanna see mine?|bestial dockworker barrels frot jo]]\n</div>
He leers at you, fingers squeezing around his sheath; the soft flesh, coated in whorls of hair, bulges through between his broad fingers.\n\\n<<dialog "Yeah, lemme see.">>\\n\\nYou grope your own crotch, cock hardening under the pressure of your hand; under the sight of his fattening sheath, beads of pre starting to ooze from the spreading tip. You tug open the laces with your thumb, letting you pull the fabric away from your crotch. Your cock lurches, thickening, and you heft it out with the heel of your hand, letting your cock and balls flop out in the open. Not as big as a beast cock, but definitely not nothing.\n\n<<if getConvVar ("name")>>Idriss<<else>>He<<endif>> groans, stroking his own sheath as you tug on your cock. It responds to his gaze, flushing and filling out quick, thickening until it's a solid handful, blunt cocktip pushing free from your foreskin as you stroke your shaft.\n\nHis bestial cocktip pushes out into the open: flesh leeched of all color from the murky blue lights of the undercity, making his shaft appear an inky purple, with pitch-black veins. It shines in the dim light, already slick and slimy. He milks out a cloudy droplet of pre from his sloped cocktip, smearing it across his gleaming cockhead with one clawed finger, and then reaches out, slick fingers curling soft around your cockhead, sliding frictionless along the underside of your cockhead. You let out an almost-soundless //wuhh// of an exhale, rocking forward gently, wet sounds coming from his fingers as he cups your cock in his hand, stroking it slowly.\n\nYou reach for his dick, mirroring the motion -- his animal cock a sharp prong jutting from his crotch, more still unsheathing, and he jerks back, looking up and down the dock.\n\\n<<dialog "Wait. Not here.">>\\n\\nHis gaze roves, from the docked ship to the bays between the vaults of the riverside path, and, specifically, at a stacked pallet with a haphazard line of barrels next to it, forming a barrier half a person tall, recessed from the dock and mostly out of view. He jerks his head to the side:\n\\n<<dialog "Behind those barrels.">>\\n\\nYou both tug your pants up, cocks mostly-hidden for all that they're still extremely obvious as you sidle your way over to the barrels. When you get there, he pulls you close, one hand pressing hot against your hip. He pins your cocks tight against each other, grinding down hard until you both groan. He lets his pants drop, half-unsheathed cock clashing against your own hard shaft, and reaches out, loosely grasping your shaft, giving it a fresh coating of slimy pre, and this time he makes no objection when you curl one hand -- and then the other, as he keeps unsheathing -- around his cock. His flesh is slick, glazed in his slimy pre so that it's almost frictionless, and beneath the skin you can feel the flesh of his cock shudder and pulse, puffy and turgid, still firming up even with the immense, inhuman bulk of his beast cock already on display.\n\nHis cock shudders in your hand, leaking out a long, filmy line of cloudy pre that spills down your front, and you take a half-step back and yank your shirt over your head, tossing it to the side, letting his next wet burble of pre spill down your bare chest. He grins at you, raising a hand to smear the mess into your skin, glazing your skin until the string is a messy smear, dully shiny, across your stomach.\n\nYou stroke him, hands squelching as you work across his bestial flesh. A stringy mess of slime drizzles down the underside of his shaft, burbling from the pulsing tip and forming watery cords dripping down between you. Your cockhead bumps against his shaft, catching a mess of pre across its blunt flare, and he catches the webbed pre across his fingers, smearing them across your shaft and working them into your skin. He shifts his grip, callused fingerpads digging into your frenulum, playing with the ridge of your cockhead, sliding up to grind his palm against your bare cockhead, back and forth until you hiss and whine, having to jerk back from overstimulation. He grins at you, cockeyed, and curls his fingers around your cockhead, milking out a gush of pre, mixing with the slimy mess already smeared across his hand.\n\nHis sheath bulges, the fat mound of his knot starting to surface: big and bulky, even soft, and under your fingers you can feel the leathery flesh of his sheath straining, sheath pouting open. He groans, eyes fluttering closed, and he leans in, lips dragging across your jaw as he ruts his cock against your own. His hand clenches around your shaft, palm squelching as you fuck up through his tight, slick grip, and he brushes his knuckles across his shaft, letting the watery mess of his continually-flowing pre burble down his fingers, making his touches almost frictionless, just slick motion across your cock.\n\n/%[TODO/FIXME: i don't think this works b/c it doesn't have a containing div. add an empty one or smth]%/\\n<<response "Play with his sheath and work a finger or two inside."

You stroke him off, fingers sliding from the sharp angles of the bestial tip, down its bloated, oval shaft, to the gristled ridge where it pulls back to a circle, just above his knot. His knot is only just-barely sunk into his knot, and when you stroke down to the base his sheath is slick and lax enough for you to slide a finger in the gap, immersing your fingers in the slick, pulsing wetness of his sheath, pinned against his curving knot. He lets out a shaky snarl, knot beating against your fingers, and you pull back with a wet squelch.\n\nYou cup his sheath with both hands, rhythmically squeezing his burgeoning knot. His sheath shifts, slipping over the internal flesh as his knot surfaces, stretching his sheath taut, a crescent of its shape visible through the wide lip before it pushes out into the open with an obscene wet squelch. A shudder runs through his entire body, shoulders twisting, lips curling back, as his knot lurches out.\n\nOld slimy pre burbles out around the gaped opening of his sheath as it flexes and clenches; the loose flesh furrows as it pulls tight up against the underside of his knot. You smear your fingers through the mess, building up a dripping scum sluicing down your hand from his glazed knot, and then you slide lower, fingertips playing with the lip of his sheath, still slack enough for you to stroke off the root of his cock: hand cupping his knot, fingers sunk inside his sheath, curling around the thin, gristled root of his beast cock. He lets out a shaky groan, cock shuddering, and this deep you can feel his internal muscles clench, shifting the flesh of his sheath, tugging the root of his cock up. He hisses, the huge club of his cock shuddering between your bodies as you massage his cockroot, and he lets out shaky, huffing breaths from the overstimulation.\n\nYou sloppily fingerfuck his sheath. Pre pours down his shaft and soaks your knuckles, immersing your fingers in stringy slime as he fills and then overflows his sheath, bloated and heavy from the sheer mass of pre burbling inside, thick and slimy as you churn it up.\n\nYou cock shudders, knocking against his sheath, and you rut it up along the underside of his shaft until it's glazed and dripping too, tethered to his cock with finger-thick cords of churned-up pre.\n\\n<<autoresponse "What do you say?">>\\n\\nYou angle your cock down, cockhead knocking against his knot and then abruptly slipping down, butting against the lip of his flooded sheath. You grind down, the short, stiff hairs at the very rim of his sheath sharply intense across your bare cockhead.\n\\n<<autoresponse "Think you can take it?">>\\n\\nYou punctuate it by tapping your fingers against the root of his shaft, a good few inches up inside his sheath. He lets out a groan, hips hunching forward, fucking his cock up your chest.\n\\n<<dialog "You're a lot, you know? But, fuck, go for it.">>\\n\\nHe sags back, half-sitting on the barrels, ass digging into the rim, his heavy balls knocking against the sealed wood, and his sheath already a sloppy, fucked-open mess. He milks his sheath, squirting out a thick, creamy mess of churned-up pre across your cock, and you give yourself a stroke, lathering your shaft, before you press forward between his legs. Your blunt cockhead digs into the plush lip of his sheath, and he groans, legs shifting wider, hips hunching forward, sheath swallowing down half your cock with an obscene wet //glurp//. Fat globs of pre burble out from the stretched rim of his sheath, splattering down on the pallet below you with sharp cracks.\n\nHe's incredibly hot inside, hot and wet and tight. You experimentally thrust, cock sliding along the thin spar of his cockroot, and his sheath warps and shudders, pinned back into a fat mass of folded flesh, knot looking almost black in the blue light as it gets more and more flushed.\n\nYou fuck his sheath while jerking him off: hands keeping his cock anchored between you, while you work his sheath open into a wide, gushing oval. Each thrust sounds obscene: a wet squelch, popping and gurgling, thick sludgy glurping noises echoing off the undercity walls. It's a good thing the dock is pretty deserted; it's not at all hidden. His knot throbs, feverishly hot against your belly when you sink in to the root, cockhead mashing against some rubbery internal wall as his sheath narrows and twists inside his body cavity. <<if getConvVar ("name")>>Idriss<<else>>He<<endif>> lets out a shaky yelp, rasping for breath against your neck, and you slide a slime-coated hand down to cup his bulging sheath, milking it around your cock as you rut inside him, balls clapping against the base of his sheath.\n\\n<<dialog "Oh fuck.">>\\n\\nHis voice is cracked and shaky, breath hitched. His mouth is open, breath whistling, and he sharply inhales.\n\\n<<dialog "Oh //fuck!//">>\\n\\nHe cums all up and down your front in a sudden explosion of slime. His cock erupts, knot beating hard, spraying rank, grey beast cum from your chest up, splattering in a messy arch over your head, painting your /%{hair}%/hair and dripping down your face, oozing down the back of your neck. You groan, leaning in -- pinning his cock tight between your chests, where the next shot sprays out in all directions -- and fuck him harder, the wet squelch of you mating his sheath turning into a continual burble, pre squirting out and pouring down your thighs, dripping from your balls in fat dollops. He grabs a hand and pins it around his knot, and you squeeze down, pulling out another immense blast of grimy beast cum all across your chest.\n\nYou cum in his sheath, the sucking wet heat bringing you off. His breath on your neck, the pulsing of his cock between you, the heat of his body against the chill of the undercity... you close you eyes and groan, arching up into his bruised sheath, legs trembling as you blow your load inside him, mixing with the churned-up slime inside and burbling out as a thick froth. You fuck him through your orgasm, pulse after pulse of cum spraying deep inside him as you bite at his jaw, the both of you panting and sweaty.\n\nHe wipes a tendril of cum off your jaw, tongue following after to lap up the slimy mess. /%His tongue rasps across your stubble.%/\n\\n<<dialog "Sorry.">>\\n\\nHe says it against your throat, voice buzzing into your chest, muffled as he laps up the mess of his load. Your front -- his front too -- is plastered with cum, his chest hair soaked to his skin in dark curls. His cock shudders between you, pulsing out a fat glug of cum against your chin.\n\nYou stir your cock inside his sheath.\n\\n<<autoresponse "'s fine.">>\\n\\nYou pull free, the ridge of your cockhead scraping all along his bruised inner sheath and forcing out an immense mass of churned-up, jelly-like cum.

It's remarkably huge pinned there behind his knot, leathery flesh taut and straining, hot and smooth.\n\nYou milk out the dregs of each others' loads, and he scrapes an insulated tarpaulin across your chest, picking up some amount of the mess. You still look like you got a facial from a beast, though. Your cock is damp and sticky when you stuff it back into your pants, and <<if getConvVar ("name")>>Idriss is<<else>>he's<<endif>> just as much a mess, big globs of cum stuck in his beard, a big glazed smear all across his chest, drying and pinning his hair down.\n\\n<<autoresponse "I'll, uh, see you around.">>\n\\nHe gives you a cockeyed leer.\n\\n<<dialog "Yeah, be seeing you.">>\\n\nHe pulls his pants up.

You press your bodies together tightly. His muscles shift against your chest, and his cock lurches between you, spitting out wet, slobbery cords of pre between your pecs. Your cock spans up against the underside of his shaft, rutting across his glazed flesh.\n\nHe groans, taking your head in one broad hand and pressing your lips together, tongue hungrily lapping at your teeth as he deepens the kiss. You hump against each other, cocks skidding up your bodies, wetly squelching as his pre smears all across your fronts. His cock shudders, surging fatter, flesh going from spongy and turgid to iron-hard in slow, rippling pulses. It butts against you, bulky and heavy, massive when drags against your muscles, coating them in a fresh layer of watery slime. <<if getConvVar ("name")>>Idriss<<else>>He<<endif>> moans into your mouth as you hump against him, cock skidding up the length of his shaft, churning up the watery slime into thick, squelching cords of opaque greyish sludge.\n\nHis beast cock shudders, the dimple along the top flexing and pulsing, bulging wider when he gushes out a mess of acrid slime. Its smell suffuses the air, thickening as he works his lathered pre into your skin, rank and spicy. He groans into your mouth, fangs nipping at your lips, and his knot bursts out into the open, a dense, rubbery ball pinned between your hips, slopping across your cock in a way that makes you grind down harder, fucking along the groove where his knot meets his shaft, shakily gasping into his mouth.\n\nYou stroke each other off, arms pinned against your body. He gropes your cock, letting you gush pre against his palm, broad hands curling around your sac and tugging on your balls as you arch up into his fist, fucking his hand, cockhead knocking against his bloating knot. You find a rhythm: chests pressed together, arms pumping, hips thrusting your cocks together. His knot is a hard swell against your belly, rising and falling with his thrusts; it slowly engorges, becoming bulkier and harder, a solid lump that smacks against your thighs when he hunches forward. The pressure of the contact races through your body, hot sparks as your cock drags against his own, the buzz when you slip off the side of his knot and scrape across his hairy belly, humping his hip.\n\nHis cock shudders between you, hot lines splattering across your cheeks -- his cock gushes out a mess of cloudy grey pre, forceful enough to splatter between your faces, dribbling down his forehead and burbling over your spit-shined lips.\n\\n<<dialog "Fuck, I'm close.

He groans at your response, hungrily biting across your jaw, cock audibly slopping as he fucks it between your pecs.\n\\n<<dialog "Fuck yeah, gonna make a big mess. Hope you're ready.">>\\n\\nYou cup his shaft with both hands, giving him grasping tunnel to fuck through. You stroke down, letting him smack his knot against the heel of your hand. Each thrust is punctuated with a sharp //crack// of his knot hitting your hand with enough force that you'll probably be bruised afterwards. He grunts and groans into your mouth, slobbering as he grabs your hips and pins you tight, bending you backwards as he fucks his cock all up your chest, splashing your faces with spurt after spurt of rank, bitter pre.\n\nHis panting goes hoarse: sucking in hair in guttural, open-mouthed snorts, snarling an inch from your face. His cock shudders hard, flexing sharply between you: once, twice, and then he cums with a bestial snarl, first shot glancing off your chin and splattering between you in a mess of foamy droplets, hot and dripping everywhere. He croons, his bulging cockhole flexed wide, and his entire body jolts with each pulse of his cock. His cock erupts, finger-thick cords of grimy grey cum spraying all across your front, hosing you down in wet, dribbling pulses. He fucks your front in time, cock cutting through the mess dripping down your stomach: pulsing cockhole pissing out cum across your stomach, only for the next jolt to smack, stinging, against your jaw when he fucks his cock up your chest, sharp tip digging into the underside of your mouth.\n\nYou cum all over his dick. You grind back against him, meeting him thrust for thrust. Your cock is drenched in the mess pouring down your front, and the sloppy heat adds an extra drag when you pin your cock against his sheath and rut. You cum with a groan, spurting up his cock, across his belly, and he groans, sloppily kissing you, feeding you his own load as it splatters against both your faces. He sucks on your tongue, whining and whimpering as you squeeze down on his knot, glazing the both of you in his spurts of murky beast cum.\n\nBy the time he finishes, there's a puddle beneath you, and you're both dripping from head to toe, big slimy runnels pouring down your chest and stomach, branching at your thighs to wind down in a messy delta all the way down to your feet. He ruts against you, breathing hard, the contact squelching and spitting -- frothy cords of churned-up cum stretch out between you, drooping down under their own weight and eventually smearing back into the mess painted across your bodies.\n\nHe lets out a shaky exhale, reaching down to pin your cocks together, milking them both.\n\\n<<dialog "Fuck. That was real nice.">>\\n\\nHe reaches up and catches a string of cum slowly stretching out from your jawline, smearing it all down your chest and tracing a line through the sloppy mess. He leans back, letting the mess stretch out and then stream down your chests. Cum pours across his drenched sheath and splatters to the ground beneath you. It starts to cool in the undercity air, getting clammy and thick, and you scrape a hand across your chest and fling off the handful of sludge, splattering it across the floor. He lets out a soft bark of a laugh.\n\n<<if getConvVar ("name")>>Idriss<<else>>He<<endif>> helps clean you off with an insulated tarpaulin, vaguely absorbant as he scrapes it down your front, toweling you and him both off. /%Your hair is dripping, sudden blots of cum spilling down your forehead, across your cheeks.%/\n\\n<<dialog "I did say it'd be messy.">>\\n\\nEventually you're both not dripping wet -- his hair is all matted to his chest, and your skin is dully glimmering, the thin glaze of cum dried into a flaking crust.

He lets out a ragged sigh of a laugh and slides his hands down his cock, one cupped around his knot, the other clasping around his sheath. He angles his cock down, smearing it down your chest, glancing off your own hard cock, and you take a half-step back, letting it lurch down between your legs, grinding against your balls. His spurts wetly splatter on the stones behind you, a drizzle of pre pouring down his angled tip and spilling between your feet.\n\nYou rut your cock along the top of his shaft, thighs digging into the tip of his cock. He groans, taking a step forward to close the distance, fucking his cock between your thighs as your cockhead bashes against his knot. He pre smears across your skin, lubing the sloppy channel as you pin his shaft between your legs. His cock is rock hard, slick and heavy digging into the meat of your thighs, and he rests his head on your shoulder, huffing and panting as he fucks your thighs, grinding down until his knot throbs against your balls, a giant hard mound of flesh pinned between your bodies.\n\\n<<dialog "Fuck, gonna cum.">>\\n\\nHis cock jerks up hard. It swells all along its length, knot thundering fatter and fatter as it swells to its full size, and <<if getConvVar ("name")>>Idriss<<else>>he<<endif>> lets out a deep, guttural groan as he erupts, cock kicking up against you each time he fires. There's a half-second before the first splatter sounds behind you, cum nearly hitting the far wall. He sloppily fucks your thighs, spurting tip gushing cum in a watery mess behind you. You hump his stomach, cockhead dragging through the coarse, matted hair across his muscled stomach, and you let out a groan, pressing tight against his broad chest, riding his cock -- //riding// his cock, pinning its bucking jolts between your thighs -- as you spray your own load up across his chest.\n\\n<<dialog "Cum on my knot.">>\\n\\nYou pull back, angling your cock down, and splatter it point-blank with your next shots, your milky cum smearing across the gleaming swell of his knot, flushed almost black in the dim light. He groans, hands working the mess into his flesh, the slimy slurry of his pre and your cum squelching under his palms. You ride out your orgasm, grinding down against his shaft so it digs into the root of your cock, behind your balls, and gush out a few messy splatters of cum curving down over the bloated bulk of his knot. His spurts even out into a continual flow, pissing out watery beast cum onto the soaked stones behind you, and you rut along his shaft, glazing your softening cock in his pre.\n\nHis knot, never properly latched in place, softens fast, and you swing off his cock. Your thighs ache, phantom-sensation of him still fucking them buzzing across your slimy skin. Actually looking behind you, he's made an immense mess: a glossy river of thin, watery beast cum, slowly flowing down to meet with the dockside puddles.\n\nHe hauls an insulated blanket off the pallet stack and hands it over, letting you wipe down your chest and thighs, cleaning off the worst of the mess, or at least smearing it down to the point where it dries into a flaking crust quick.\n\nHe gives your cock a tug, nubby claw sliding up to dig into the flesh of your inner thigh.\n\\n<<dialog "That was real nice.">>\\n\\nYou answer the motion, tugging on his sheath and half-sunken knot, helping it sink back inside him with a messy //slurp//.\n\\n<<autoresponse "Yeah, real good.">>\\n\\n<div class="npc">See you around, huh?</div>\n\\n<<autoresponse "Yeah, see you around.">>\\n\\nYou head out.\n<<sex "bestial dockworker" "thighfuck" "top">>\\n\n[[=>|map]]
He leers at you, fingers squeezing around his sheath. His bestial cocktip pushes out into the open: flesh leeched of all color from the murky blue lights of the undercity, making his shaft appear an inky purple, with pitch-black veins. It shines in the dim light, already slick and slimy. He milks out a cloudy droplet of pre from his sloped cocktip, smearing it across his gleaming cockhead with one clawed finger.\n\n<<dialog "I got some time before my shift's up; you can blow me if you want.">>\n\nHis gaze roves, from the docked ship to the bays between the vaults of the riverside path, and, specifically, at a stacked pallet with a haphazard line of barrels next to it, forming a barrier half a person tall. He jerks his head to the side:\n\n<<dialog "Behind those barrels.">>\n\nHe's close behind you as you walk towards the barrels, one hand furled into his loose pants, pinning them to the front of his sheath. The heat of his body radiates against your back. You reach the pallet and run your hand over the oaken barrels, and he presses against your back, hands on your hips, sliding up your chest, and he presses a hungry kiss against the side of your neck. You turn around, and he slides even closer, knee pressing between your legs, mouth scraping up the line of your jaw to nip at your lips; you can feel, for a moment, the uneven line of his craggy fangs.\n\n<<dialog "Get on your knees.">>\n\nHe says it against your teeth, breath puffing across your face. You drop to your knees. Yes, at this height you're entirely hidden from the rest of the pier. His hands drop to his waist, letting his pants pooling at his ankles, leaving him entirely naked.\n\nHis chest is thickly muscled, broad and hairy, but his lower half is even more transformed. His coarse hair thickens into shaggy fur, entirely coating his legs, and his feet are starting to warp and arch up into a beast's paws.\n\nHis cock, already jutting from his crotch as a heavy, fat prong, shudders and pushes out further under your gaze, more and more of the animalistic shaft spilling out, already slick and shining. He leans back, hands braced on the barrels behind him, and the sheer weight of his cock points it down, aimed at your face. He cants his hips and his balls lurch over to slap against his thigh, the nearly fist-sized orbs lolling against his hairy skin. \n\nYou lean in, face nestled against his thigh, and lap across his sheath, tongue catching a sliver of his raw cockflesh. He tastes bestial, animal: rank and meaty, a little acrid. He lets out a chuffing breath, a snarl catching in his throat, and you look up at him as you lick up his cock, lips pursing around the sharp tip.\n\nMuscles across his stomach clench and ripple under his coarse hair, and his cock flexes in its sheath, slowly spilling out into the open. You lap at the tip as it pushes out, eyes focused down at the increasing length. It's obscene, a grotesque beast's shaft hanging off his body. The sound of it resounds off the walls: gurgling and slurping, sloppy and wet as it spills out into the open, mottled flesh coated in his own rank issue. It twitches, the smooth, sleek flesh becoming marred by corded veins, each heartbeat sending them racing up his shaft in lightning-bolt patterns before they subside, making his entire shaft pulsate.\n\nHe lets out a breath like a snarl, a hot cloud in the chill air, and leans in, his cock stabbing against the back of your throat, stretching your lips wide. He looms over you, his altered, inhuman cock pulsing, and a burst of hot, rank fluid burbles across your tongue, heavy and greasy, cutting out the wet, musty smell of the undercity and replacing it with the thick, meaty taste of his cock.\n\nHe cups your head with one clawed hand, fingers curling around your chin. His cock visibly throbs, veins fluttering to the surface in time with his heartbeat, and beneath his sheath his balls roil and squirm, the flesh of his sac tensing and releasing, sending his balls lurching across his hairy thighs. You drag your tongue across the underside of his shaft, licking up to the pointed tip and then curling your tongue around the gnarled divot of his cocktube, bobbing on the final few inches of his cock. He groans, rewarding you with another spurt of heavy, rank precome, and you swallow it down. Its slimy texture sticks in your throat, slippery and strange when you swallow again.\n\nFully unsheathed, his cock juts out from his crotch as an enormous spar, easily as long as your forearm from the elbow to your fingertips. His flesh is spongy, still-soft around the rigid core. Suckling on the tip, you wrap your hands around it with a squelch, softly stroking to evenly coat it with a sheen of spit and pre. He croons, cockflesh thickening in your grasp, and you blow the tip of his dick, feeling him firm up in little lurches and ticks until his cock is an iron-hard span of heated flesh, almost no give at all when you squeeze down. Your slippery fingers slurp through the lather you've worked up, coating his shaft in an oily froth that smears across the backs of your hands and oozes down your wrists in thick dollops of cream. He grunts, cock erratically spurting hot gushes of pre in the back of your mouth, each one a sharp burst of rank, acrid flavor. Your lips ache from slurping over the thickness of his shaft, bruised and swollen, sensation prickling across them when you pull back and pant across the tip, letting him drizzle out his pre over your tongue, drooling out of your mouth in slobbery strands between your breathless gulps. Ooze drools down your front, staining your shirt, and he lets out a bark of a laugh.\n\n<<dialog "Gonna want to take that off; it's gonna get a lot messier.">>\n\nYou pull back, hands leaving dark smears on your shirt as you haul it over your head and toss it aside. The cool air of the undercity prickles across your skin, raising goosebumps, but then he presses back in close, the wash of heat off his body enveloping you.\n\n<<dialog "Too bad we can't lay you out here, so I can properly fuck your throat.">>\n\nHe punctuates it with a slap against the surface of the barrels. It's true, this isn't a good position to try deepthroating anything: his sheath points straight out, tethered to his stomach so it can't hang any lower; and he's got a bone in his dick, so it sure as hell can't bend. You're only sucking on the first few inches and stroking the rest; that's enough to dig into the back of your throat, but after that there's no way you're getting the right angle to sink any deeper.\n\\n/%branch: yr like, there's an empty pallet, and you lie on yr back there where he fucks yr face & manages to fit most of his cock down yr throat. but that needs a good 'no deepthroat' branch\n\n%/\\n\nYou look up at him, cocktip resting in your open mouth, and he groans and aims himself up, cocktip digging into the corner of your mouth, sending his next gush of pre spraying up across your cheeks, over one eye. You squint it half-closed, letting yourself sag forward so you can slurp across a few inches of his cock.\n\nHis knot pops free of his sheath with a slobbery pop, splattering thickened internal slime against your forearms. There's a ribbon of slime hanging from the underside of his shaft, slapping against your fingers and smearing back out as you stroke, and now you splatter the entire mess across the bulk of his turgid knot, fingers kneading the bulb of flesh, working his bestial fluids into his skin. He groans, hips lurching forward, fucking a few inches of cock into your mouth, and you groan around it.\n\n<<dialog "Lemme pop a knot in your hands.">>\n\nHe snarls, fucking his cock past your bruised lips, and you groan and slide your other hand down, both hands cradling his fattening knot. His shaft darkens as it goes down, purple tinging to a pitch black, all the red leeched out from the bluish lights, until his knot is a perfect glossy black, bashing against your fingers. He grabs your head, starting to properly fuck your face, jabbing his sharp cocktip against the back of your throat again and again, coaxing out wet, slobbery gags.\n\nHe leers down at you, eyes gleaming in the darkness, the muscles across his chest and stomach rippling, hair soaked to his skin in clumps from sweat. His knot throbs between your hands, squelching obscenely as he fucks your fists, and you alternate between cupping down hard and letting it slip out of your grasp, huge knot knocking against your hands before you let it back in. Every time you squeeze down, holding him tight, the whole length of his cock ripples and shudders, and he spits out thicker, heavier bursts of pre into your flooded mouth. With him facefucking you, you're beyond swallowing it all: you just gulp when you can, between breaths, and let the rest burble out over your swollen lips, smearing all down your bare chest. He groans, catching a jiggling strand hanging from your chin and smearing it all up the side of your face, palm squelching against your cheek.\n\nHis hips snap forward, burying more of his cock in your throat -- you gurgle around it, knifetip point jabbing against soft tissue -- and he groans deep and low, sloppy wet noises coming from your fucked-open throat as he picks up the pace: hands bracketing your face, your elbows resting on his thighs as you keep your hold on his swelling knot. Your fingers spread apart, slices of cockflesh bulging through as his knot inflates fully, becoming a burning coal between your fingers. He lets out a guttural roar, maybe loud enough to attract notice, and his cock erupts against your throat, instantly filling your mouth with a wash of hot, rank beast cum. You choke, cum burning up through your sinuses and drooling from your nose, and he lurches forward, thrusts jabbing into your mouth once, twice, before he pulls out too far and slips free, totally drenching your face in huge squirting gushes of thick slime, spraying into /% {your hair} %/your hair and oozing down your face before he can grind a hand against his shaft and slip it back inside your open, drooling mouth.\n\nThe first few pulses are thick, tarry: a dense, opaque slime, murky grey. It sticks to your teeth and skin, catching in blobs down your /% {beard/skin} %/skin, and then -- as he sags back against the barrels above you with a long sigh -- you can feel it change, thinning out, the sharp spurts turning into a continual flow punctuated with even pulses. Watery ooze floods your mouth, coating your throat, washing through the mess of thicker sludge all down your front, making it all pour down to your crotch.\n\nYou're hard too. You've known this for a while but you've been more interested in sucking dick. Still, cumming all down your front, <<if getConvVar ("name")>>Idriss<<else>>he<<endif>> notices and presses his calf against your tented cock, skewed up across your hip.\n\n<<dialog "You wanna cum too?">>\n\nHe grinds his leg against your crotch to punctuate it, and you moan around his dick and nod, humping his leg. His knot is still throbbing hard in your hands, in time with the pulses overflowing your mouth, and you close your eyes and grind against him, focusing on the heat of his body; the muscled line of his calf; the rank taste of his cum; the sharp pants of his breath as you keep suckling on his spurting cock. The hard, implacable weight of his knot.\n\nYou cum with a groan, gurgling wetly around his still-spurting cock, and shoot into your pants, humping up against his leg, rolling your hips as you ride it out. His pant leg is soaked in a mixture of yours and his loads, and the wet drag of the fabric is enough stimulation to keep you grinding against him, even after you finish. He's still cumming. It takes a long time for him to stop. His balls lurch, pulled up under his sheath into a gigantic block bigger than both your fists, and you can lean forward and press down with your forearms, feeling the strange internal muscles rhythmically fire, keeping him pumping and pumping and pumping.\n\nBy the time he's actually done, you're a drenched mess: face coated, /%{beard soaked to your skin/jaw and chin a slathered mess}%/jaw and chin a slathered mess, a slimy waterfall spilling down the center of your chest. His knot softens, and he finally pulls free, leaving your fingers aching from being clenched for so long. You gasp for breath, letting excess cum spill from your open mouth, stomach sloshing from the immense amount you managed to swallow.\n\n<<dialog "Lemme get you cleaned off.">>\n\nHe leans to the side, pulling a folded insulating tarpaulin off the pallet, and scrubs it down your front. You help, /%{trying to wipe the mess free of your beard/dragging it down your face}%/scrubbing down your face and saturating it with his cum too; you don't know how effective it is at actually cleaning you. By the time you stand up, your skin is at least dry, if crusted and flaky.

He widens his stance a little as his still-turgid cock sinks back inside him.\n\nHe gives you a cockeyed grin and pulls you to your feet, tossing you your shirt as he pulls his pants back up and pulls his cloth belt taut.\n\n<<dialog "That was a real nice relief. Sure hope your investigation leads you back here.">>\n\nHe gives you a wink, tying his belt with a snap.

<<display "intro blurb">>\nA night watchman with an oil lamp clutched in his left hand.\n\nHe's visibly transformed: he's wearing a guard's coat that no longer fits the bestial contortions of his body; his chest -- his ribcage -- bulges out from his body, shaped like it fits an entirely different kind of being, and his coat hangs open, impossible to button across the protruding bulk of his animal chest. Because of the sheer stretch of his ribs, his stomach looks sunken and gaunt: taut skin tightly drawn from his bottom ribs down to his hips.\n\nHe's covered his face with a scarecrow's burlap-sack head as a mask, with stray handfuls of straw bulging out its shape, making his head look lopsided. All you can make from his facial features is that he's unshaven: a shaggy beard erupts out beneath the sack, joining with the fur growing across his neck and fanning out over his shoulders, giving the appearance of wearing a fur mantle.\n\nMaybe he does it to hide his transformed face, or maybe because his animal eyes and nose can no longer tolerate the light and scented fumes from his watchman's lamp.\n\nBefore the plague, the watchmen were conscripted from the local homeowners by the local constable for sessions of two weeks, but with no officers left to appoint a constabulary, much less any constables left to select men from the wards, there are only haggard collections of volunteer militiamen, haphazardly walking their rounds.\n\nHe looks at you, blocking his route, and hoists his lamp higher:\n<<dialog "Well?

You step with him into the darkness.\n\nHe shutters his lantern and puts it aside, only a thin light between a few uneven slats belying its presence at all.\n\nHe steps close. At first, in the dark, it's all touch: his body is warped and misshapen, much closer to a beast walking on its hind legs than that of a man. His belly is sunken under his giant ribs, bulky pelvis protruding from his well-muscled hips, and his hands wrap around your sides more like claws.\n\nThe mound of his sheath is unmistakable: hot through the fabric, big and bulky tethered to his underbelly. It shifts under your fingers, through his pants, and he lets out a hiss as he unsheathes, raw cock scraping against the coarse fabric. Dampness clings to your hand, seeping through, and he lurches forward, grinding against you: his cock jostles, a hard spar pressing against your front, lurching back and forth. He clashes against your own cock, hardening, and bears down harder, letting your trapped erections slide against each other, a firm line of contact running all down your shaft. He lets out a guttural groan and his cock shudders, a wet splotch seeping through the fabric, adding a drag to your rutting thrusts.\n\nHe tugs at his belt, the worn leather parting easily, and his pants sag down his hips, ill-fitting on his altered posture. His cock lurches out, just a gleam in the darkness, and smacks wetly against your front. It's slick, wet with the slimy fluid of his sheath, and he ruts forward, drizzling rank slime over your shirt, and you tug it to the side, letting him grind up across your stomach, pre smearing down your skin.\n\nYou tug open the laces of your pants before the mess gets any worse. Your cock skews out, grinding against his slimy length, and he curls them both together in one huge claw: your cockhead slurping against the underside of his bestial shaft, getting entirely drenched in his rank pre. The heady scent wafts up across your face, so intense it feels like it's boring into your skull.\n\nYou rut against each other, your thrusts forming a sloppy trough between his sheath and his haunch. His fur is sodden and dripping, with runnels of watery pre burbling down his length and splattering all across your legs. He humps his cock up your stomach, and the immense, lopsided mass of his balls swing forward to punctuate each thrust, crashing against your thighs with a lewd //crack//. You curl your hands around his cock: it's a gnarled, bestial club, pulsing with an inhuman vigor, flesh pulpy and soft, slick and frictionless, in a way no human dick has ever been.\n\n<div class="responses"><<plegend>>\\n<<response "C'mon, fuck me." "night watchman alcove ride knot">>\n<<response "Lemme fuck you." "night watchman alcove fuck">>\n</div>\
He lets out a hungry groan, one giant clawed hand reaching back to grind a hairy knuckle against his hole. He twists around, falling on all fours with a //thump//, and presents himself. His clothes are in disarray, haphazardly stretched across his bestial form -- pants caught on one haunch, kicked down to mid-flank on the other; one foreleg pulled out of his jacket, the other sleeve jammed up against his armpit -- and you tug his pants down, pulling them over his watchman's boots, awkwardly twisted to handle his elongated feet. His tail is a stumpy thing only a handspan long, with shaggy fur growing along the upper surface, still bare below. You slide your hands down, over the curve of his ass, and press against his hole. He's altered there, too: hole broad and open, rim bulging out, animal flesh wrinkled and thick. You slide to the center of his hole, two fingers pushing in easily, and he lets out a guttural animal noise, a growling groan. His asshole is lobed, big dense mounds of flesh just behind his asshole, and when you push down on them he lets out a whine, rutting back into you with enough force to make you ground your footing, braced against the pillar behind you as you fingerfuck him.\n\nInternal muscles shudder around your fingers, and his cock audibly smacks against his belly, followed by a wet crack as he gushes out pre all over the stones below. The next pulse is wetter, splattering into the puddled mess beneath. He ruts back, hole hungrily bashing against your knuckles, and you feed another finger into him. He can't quite stretch around your entire hand with no prep, but he takes four fingers well enough, snorting and groaning the whole time. You dig your fingers into the soft, pulpy flesh of his guts, grinding your knuckles against his rim. His prostate is enormous: a fat, fist-sized gland, a dense knot of muscle that's defined enough for you to slide your fingers across, digging into the grooves across its surface. It clenches each time his cock fires off, thudding solidly, and fluid gurgles through it in the aftermath, vibrating the flesh against your fingers.\n\nYou rut against his hip, cock sliding up against your hand, digging into the soft, open flesh of his hole. You slide your cock in as you pull your fingers out, sinking yourself into the hot, slick heat of his ass. Your cock knocks against his bulging glands, blunt tip solidly smacking against his enormously swollen prostate, and he lets out a bone-rattling groan, bucking back against you with enough force to press you against the wall, his hips rolling as he fucks himself on your cock. You match the rhythm, hands digging into his hairy flanks, rutting forward to grind your cock along the grooved surface of his prostate, the sharp impact sending bolts of heat racing along your shaft. You groan too, fucking into him, building up a steady rhythm.\n\nYou reach over his hip, gripping his shaft, pumping it through your hand as you fuck him. He's dripping wet, shaft frictionless as he ruts through your fist. His bulky knot smacks against your hand, and the resulting shudder and spurt sprays a spume of pre all the way out into the light: gleaming grey-silver pools of watery beast fluid.\n\nHis hole shudders around your cock, clamping down and making his heavy lobes dig into your shaft, a smooth dense ring you fuck through with each thrust. You build up a rhythm, other hand braced on his hip, letting you fuck him in steady thrusts. He huffs and groans, cocktip gurgling as it spews pre into the messy puddle beneath him, squirting harder each time your cockhead skids across the bloated mound of his prostate.\n\nHe's hot and pulsing around your cock, smooth muscle rippling along your shaft, cocktip a battering ram inside him. You groan and hunch forward, snapping your hips forward, plowing into him hard. His claws skitter on the stones as he braces himself, haunches jolting up to punctuate each thrust with a sharp smack of impact, stinging across your hips. You groan, cock shuddering inside him, and fuck him through the final few thrusts, heat billowing in your gut, growing and growing until you know it's inevitable and you're just dragging it out further, until finally you cum into him with a groan, cock shooting off heavy spurts into his sucking guts. You fuck him through it, each time you hilt coaxing a full-body shudder and another squirt of cum, painting the walls of his ass with your load until it starts to spill down your shaft, frothy and churned-up burbling out around the lumpy ring of his asshole.\n\nHis internal muscles spasm around your cock, and he cums with a howl, wetly panting into the slop beneath him. His cock kicks hard, knot bloating in pulses, and sprays a rope of cum with enough force to splatter all up his front, soaking his chest and his hooded face. He whines as you milk his knot, still rocking inside him, still-hard cock digging into his prostate. He pours out his load all over the floor, pissing it out in heavy spurts until the puddle squelches under your feet, burbling out into the light in a sludgy flood.\n\nYou pull out with a wet slurp, leaving his worked-open hole slick and dripping, spilling down the curve of his ass to coat his own enormous balls, drawn up tight beneath him in a gigantic mound. You grind down against them, feeling their immense, knobbled surface through his skin. They shudder and pulse, internal muscles sucking them tight against his body each time he shoots a burst of cum. His shots go from sharp, lancing bursts to a continual wet pour, burbling down into the mess below. His knot softens in your hand, its dense flesh going spongy, until you finally release it, letting his cock skew down into the pooled cum below with a //splat//.\n\nHe shudders, breath pumping like a bellows through his panting mouth, and sluggishly gets to his feet. He tries to straighten his coat, pull up his pants. They're both half-sodden with cum, huge wet patches all along the front, and he staggers out into the light still in disarray: chest dripping; well-fucked asshole oozing your load; his cock still unsheathed, an enormous cudgel the size of your forearm, blood-red and still weakly drooling filmy grey cum.\n\\n<<autoresponse "That settle your urges?">>\\n\\nHe lets out a hoarse bark of a laugh, reaching down with one clawed hand to tug upwards on his beast cock, wringing out a messy splatter of sludgy animal issue.\n\\n<<dialog "Certainly.">>\\n\\nYou tug your pants up, tucking you cum-smeared cock inside. It takes more than a while before either of you are at all presentable.\n\n[[=>|map]]
He groans, surging forward, and pins you against the wall: claws on your shoulders, leg pushing in between your thighs, other hand curling around your knee and raising one leg so he can hump across the full length of your thighs and belly, pinning your cock to your stomach. He croons, breath billowing across your neck, the indistinct imprint of teeth felt through the burlap sack, and fucks your hands, cock loudly slopping through your fists.\n\nHe hauls your raised leg across his thigh so that you're half-balanced on his lap, and pushes his hand against the crotch of your pants, shoving them down to mid-thigh. His cock smears against the fabric, spurting an abrupt gush of pre that sprays all the way up your chest, and then his cock lurches down to saw against the back of your thigh, butting against the cheek of your ass.\n\nYou groan, grinding down against his fat length.\n\\n<<dialog "Yeah, c'mon, ride me.">>\\n\\nHe snarls in your ear, breath rank, and angles his cock up, pointed tip stabbing against your thigh, hip, inner thigh, before you reach back, arch your back just-so, and guide his stiff cock between your cheeks, jabbing into your hole with a lurch. He burbles pre, spilling in a liquid line down the /%{hairy}%/hairy curve of your ass, slopping his tip against your spreading hole until it's glazed and dripping, wetly yielding. It still burns when he shoves inside, bestial cock fat and rigid, and you let out a guttural groan, moving with him for a moment as he fucks his cocktip into your hole, basting your ass in gushes of pre, excess burbling out down his shaft. You both groan when he sinks in deeper, cock carving you open, a huge rigid pipe impaling you deeper. You whine, clenching and flexing internal muscles to straighten your guts, and it's with a shock that has you going bug-eyed that he draws back and shoves deeper, fucking half his cock into your ass. He hauls you onto his lap, his knees bent, your back pinned against a pillar, and snarls in your face, your own cock pinned against the furl of your pants, leaking into your underwear. You press your hands against his hips, some vague leverage as he fucks you with animal thrusts. His cock throbs inside you, slick and hot, asshole splayed obscenely around his bulky shaft. It's fattest in the middle, slimming down before his knot, and he rolls your asshole back and forth over the widest bit, leaving your hole bruised and aching, spread out into a sloppy gape.\n\nHe sinks deeper, cocktip probing into your guts, and you let out a shaky exhale, straightening the line of your back to align your guts, neatly opening yourself up for his cock. He stabs yet-deeper still, the hot pulse of his spurting cockhead up past your bellybutton, listing to the side as he slides into your guts. He sinks an iota deeper, and his knot crashes against your ass with a //crack//, leaving you gasping. His hands drop, digging into the meat of your ass, spreading your cheeks wide to let him grind his knot right against your gape, and he bends his knees, bouncing you on his knot. Slimy webs of pre splatter between you, excess pre burbling out around his knot and dragging back into huge drooling strands, snapping when he shoves forward again, splattering down against your calves. Again and again, each time your bloated ass spreading fractionally more, the contact wetter and wetter. He snarls against your throat, coarse beard -- or fur -- scraping against your chest.\n\nHis knot slots into place with a full-body wrench. He doesn't fit it all the way in, not yet, but it's wedged in place, a continual burning stretch inside you, flesh sliding against flesh. His claws slice into your hips as he grinds you down, bodily dragging you down onto his bulging knot, once, twice, a third time before your abused flesh finally parts, asshole blossoming out into a fat bulging crater and sucking in the meat of his knot, letting it socket inside you like a hot coal. He buries his head in your throat, restraining his howl -- a strangled choking noise rumbling in his throat -- as he bucks inside you, knot bashing against your prostate, delving deeper into your guts with a hollow slurp. His sheath scrapes against your ass, rubbery flesh grinding against your hole and wrinkling up into hairy folds, letting him press just a fraction deeper.\n\nHis knot throbs, hard and getting harder, entire shaft shuddering and swelling. His cock erupts, so deep inside now you only feel it as a pressure that sloshes and pours, heat blooming out from the hot poker of his shaft. He finally finds his voice, broken rasp turning into a guttural keening as he dumps his bestial load into you. His initial lurches of his shaft inside you settle down into a continual pulse: muscles under his sheath clench steadily, each one adding a fresh burst of heat inside you. He slumps forward against your chest and breathes heavily. Then, after a moment, he twists around, knocking you off his lap and onto your wobbly legs -- you collapse down onto your knees in a sprawled mess, a sharp moan ripping out of your throat as his knot lurches inside you -- and then he twists around, body looking much more natural on all fours, and drags you a half-step backwards, your ass stuck between his haunches. Tied ass-to-ass. His knot is pinned against your prostate, throbbing hard with each pulse, and the steady pressure makes your cock sluggishly pulse and drool. Your pants are bunched around mid-thigh, cock jutting out over them, and without him humping into you you can actually usefully wrap your hand around your dick. His knot is //big//, a hot heavy weight stretching you out, and you find yourself rutting back against him, his knot lurching inside you, as you jerk yourself off. He's just panting on all fours, knot popped inside you, load gurgling into your guts, and you rock back against him, both sprawled on the floor, mating like animals.\n\nYou cum with a groan, stone cool on your forehead when you collapse, and your cock shudders and spits out a stringy mess of cum all over your pants. Without the edge of arousal to cut it, the sheer size of his knot is harder to handle: you whimper and squirm, asshole wetly sucking on the underside of his knot, still way too huge to work its way out any time soon.\n\nYour guts are a sloppy, flooded mess by the time he starts to soften. Thin grey cum burbles out around his turgid knot, abrupt squirts gushing out when you shift position. His hips jerk above you, stirring his cock around inside you before pulling back, and his still-engorged knot bulges out your ass into an enormous mound before he finally pulls free with a sloppy //squelch//, splattering cum everywhere, excess immediately pouring from your well-fucked ass. It still feels like he's inside you; your inner walls clench against nothing, bearing down on where his knot was lodged. The mess of cum drooling from your guts stings as it winds its way over your aching flesh, pooling against the bruised lip of your swollen asshole.\n\nHis cock, still unsheathed, knocks against your thighs as he shifts behind you, one clawed hand catching your elbow and helping you get to your feet.\n\\n<<dialog "That do you good?">>\\n\\n<<autoresponse "Yeah.">>\\n\\nCum burbles from your ass, audibly gurgling as you stand up. You're definitely gonna be walking wobbly-legged for a while. You're leaving a puddle beneath you.\n\nHe tries to straighten his coat; pull up his pants. You get the first actually glimpse of his cock when he shifts out into the light: a colossal cudgel, blood red, stained in a slimy layer of drooling grey cum. It bobs out before him, most of the size of your forearm, with his shrinking, sunken knot nearly as big as your fist, digging into the matted fur of his sheath. Seeing it sends a throb of heat through your ass: all that was inside you.\n<<sex "night watchman" "anal" "top">>\\n\n[[=>|map]]
