Nicole was briefed about Valerie by Mike and Jill on their way between Nicole's house and Rachael's. Nicole seems to be okay with it but she probably hasn't seen Valerie yet - they got to Rachael's after Tuck had changed.

Interesting revelations:

Tuck ordered some sex toys from Debbie; what he'd do with them and with whom wasn't mentioned.

Tuck was wearing a little conceal-the-hangover makeup on Monday, evidently put on him by Debbie, that was low-key enough that it wasn't remarked upon by anyone.

It was mentioned that Tuck has been intimate with Cory and Sabrina (possibly only once with Sabrina).

"Dance class" at Tuck's home on Tuesday, probably in the basement.

Well, damnit.

AUTHORIAL PROCLAMATION: Nicole wasn't briefed on VALERIE.

*goes to throw self off bridge*


Also, it wasn't that Sabrina and Cory had been intimate with Tuck; they'd gone out, on a pseudo-date.

Okay, Ellen, calm down. I probably misunderstood what you meant.

"We told her about you on the way over" can be clarified to mean "We told her about you going out on friendly dates with Rachel or members of the Pack like Sabrina or Cory. Not date-dates, just going out."

That's your story and stick to it.

Nicole not being briefed on Valerie opens up the possibility for an interesting reveal. Hark, is that an evil laugh I hear off in the distance?

It must be reminded, though, that Debbie is like $crooge McDuck: she could sell refrigerators to Eskimos, lawnmowers to Bedouins, cigars & sugar to Fidel Castro, a clue to Steve Ballmer and so forth. She did sell earrings to Tuck...

I wouldn't be surprised if when the toys finally arrive, Tuck will be wondering "Why did I order this, exactly? What was I THINKING?"

Well, the obvious snark is, "For sex, most likely masturbation". That's why most people get 'em. Picture Debbie throwing up her hands and saying, "I don't want to know what people do with 'em!"
God only knows what was going through his head... *shakes head* Really don't get outside of at least half a bottle of champagne around Debbie after midnight.

Rolling Eyes It seems, If I'm reading this right, That Tuck trusted Debbie enough to get drunk with her... However the aftermath (piercing, hangover, etc) will probably not help diplomatic relations any.

And the sex toys and makeup she got him to buy.

Remember back in the first part of the series? Tuck says, "Debbie had this idea-" and Mike cut him off, "Say no. She keeps getting you into things that don't always work out for you."

Mike was right - Tuck's association with Debbie has been mixed.

The queen talking to the prince's guard/girlfriend about her twin grandaughters attending an upcoming party:

Bethany gave Alice an evil grin. "Waking up with a thunderous hangover wondering just where they might have left their undergarments might be classified as a learning experience, wouldn't it? Assuming, of course, that they actually wore any. Undergarments, that is."

Just a bit from a novel. One hopes that Tu-Val learns from this.

Debbie told Kim that I should come by and get the 'toys' I'd ordered. I still didn't know what they were nor if I really wanted to find out what I'd ordered while getting drunk with Debbie. Even though my parents were a bit easier now with 'Val' I didn't think that they really wanted to find some sex toys in my bedroom since the door was still not locking due to being disabled by dad....

BTW Ellen, Please write at least a summary of what took place in Tuck's life between Christmas and Valentine's day.

Anne begs and pleads...

True that would be nice but really if the family doesn't go camping between Thanksgiving and Christmas then the only issue is when did Pam decide to move on from being Tuck's GF? How come, in a general sense is Tuck joining Debbie in a hate men night? I mean so far as we know the only BF that Val had was Travis. And to be honest the problem in that relationship was TuVal....

Oh, and

Tuck woke up in his OWN underwear. Debbie 'made' him change before he went to school.

Now, you could ask, "Tuck, why did you take off male underwear and put on female underwear BEFORE you went to SCHOOL?" but that would just make Tuck blame Debbie, and then if that didn't work he'd cry. Or hit you.

Since Tuck *does* have experience with anal sex (on the receiving end), *and* it's unlikely that any of his partners since Travis has done that to him, it's *possible* that either Tuck was wondering if that'd work better for him than than regular masturbation.

Or maybe drunken discussions with Debbie brought it up.

Mind you, I don't really see Debbie selling "pocket pussies" and similar male sex aids, so it's most likely vibrators or dildos. Which Val could possibly be talked into trying.

I also don't see Debbie having some of the oddder (and more expensive) stuff like electrosex toys (but I can see Tuck coming up with all *sorts* of evil uses for such if he found out about them)

Not to forget, Tuck is rather EE (Electrical Engineer) oriented. It would be more interesting to make his own units.

Parallel port pulse-width modulation? USB?

Not to mention the torture possibilities for spammers (see Admin thread).

Torturing spammers sounds like lots of fun if you can catch them... I can just imagine TuVal with a modified TENS unit.

You thought that defacing my website was funny? Trying to hack my computer? Sending me infected e-mail? When I get through with you you will be one with a computer!

The spammer is rolled in on a cart and hooked up to the machine.
Tucker: Beautiful, isn't it? Took me half a lifetime to invent it. I'm sure you've discovered my deep and abiding interest in pain. At present, I'm writing the definitive work on the subject, so I want you to be totally honest with me on how The Machine makes you feel. This being our first try, I'll use the lowest setting.
Tucker moves a lever from zero to one. Water starts flowing, powering the machine. The spammer writhes in pain. When he is finished, Tucker moves the dial back to zero.
Tucker: As you know, the concept of the suction pump is centuries old. Really that's all this is except that instead of sucking water, I'm sucking life. I've just sucked one year of your life away. I might one day go as high as five, but... I really don't know what that would do to you, so let's just start with what we have. What did this do to you? Tell me. And remember, this is for posterity, so be honest. How do you feel?
The spammer whimpers.
Tucker: Interesting.

Too bad most of the are out of reach in some Russian or Chinese sweat-shop.
Also mos high goddess of the pen, we beg and plead for the bridge information between Black Friday and Valentines day.
After all when Tuck went shopping he and Pam were acting perverse together according to Susan. Obviously they are no longer together but they appear to have moved on more amicably than Mike and Kim....

Yes yes yes, I know this already. On the other hand, I haven't been able to write it yet. Would you rather have ANY, like I've done in the past month, or the previous NONE?

Her definition of 'perverse' was, I'll note, based more on the fact that Tuck was her little brother, than anything that Pam and Tuck were doing that she could tell.

Well, for non-torture applications, it takes some specialized safety knowledge that I'm not sure Tuck would know about.

For example, the max current on a TENS unit is 80mA. And some of the isolation requirements for medical equipment are what most EEs would consider over the top. But since the medical types don't get to mount scratch monkeys...

On the gripping hand, I bet that if it occurred to Tuck to do the right sort of literature search, he'd find the right info and produce a superior product. Erostek's gear comes to mind. (Can operate off *stereo* audio inputs from a mike or line-in audio, or interface to a computer and can store user created stimulation routines Smile

Um, no. *Really* bad idea.

I speak from experience. I once took a class at Kinkfest on building your own e-stim gizmo. (We started with a novelty remote controlled "fart noise" gadget and swapped so parts).

I handed it to a friend after it was complete but before the potentiometer had been adjusted to determine the working range (for the "final" test, the leads were hooked to a speaker, If it made noise, you'd built it right)

She was holding the leads when I hit the remote. She let me live. Barely.

Note that blind folks have a weapon they can carry anywhere.. And getting hit with one of those canes hurts. Even more when she is a practiced domme and knows the "good" spots to aim for. (Remember kids, "legally blind" and "not able to see you well enough for targeting" are two *very* different things)

I expect George would visit mayhem upon Tuck in much the same way. Smile

Well, yeah; but that's hardly an unknown danger when using George as a scratch monkey.

Contrariwise, Bill has probably taught his kids the hard way not to blithely come over and do things like this, and I can't see Tucker not passing that knowledge on to his friends. The same way.

There's a different tone of voice used for 'stressful situations' which the kids can distinguish without thinking about it, BTW; when someone uses that tone, they don't ask questions.

Ouch.

There's also a tone for "I am no longer in control of my temper" (or at least "am hanging on to it by a thread") which abuse survivors know all too well.

I still flinch when I hear a parent get that tone when "correcting" a kid in public.

Come to think of it, Jill may have a similar reaction given what we know about her home life.

Which reminds me. I've been re-reading the chapters and read #64 the other day. That firmly establishes that Jill's stepfather uses her as a punching bag sometimes.

I'm wondering if him doing that is what led to her moving in with the Tuckers. Given the other stuff going on at and around school after the attack on Tuck, I can see her getting a lot of support and the beating getting "dealt with" rapidly.

What 'ouch'? I was thinking things like 'hot water hose on washing machine has failed' or 'possible intruder downstairs' to name two previous situations.

It's possible that it's something as mundane as Jill's family running into money problems for one reason or another.

It's just another one of the mysteries about which we're intensely curious, and about which we're hoping you'll enlighten us.

I won't grovel, it's undignified and highly unlikely to elicit an answer.

Just occurred to me (on second re-read) that Nicole is sort of the opposite of Travis.

Travis knew about Val and the medical stuff (though not entirely). Didn't know about Tuck still living as a guy, nor had he seen Tu-Val naked.

Nicole knows about Tuck, doesn't know about Val. Has seen Tu-Val naked, has only the barest clue that there may be medical stuff.

If (when?) this relationship goes south due to one or more of the hidden issues, *maybe* Tuck will get a clue that hiding stuff from folks you are in a relationship with is a bad idea.

Of course, that either limits him to Da Boyz, Amy and the Pack or raises the very sticky issue of how much to reveal when.

And if it falls apart *when* Nicole finds out one or more of the hidden things, that will bring up still other issues, even if she's nice enough to not spill her guts to folks who don't know about Tuck.

Tuck has several problems. They are not necessarily the presenting medical issue. They are his lack of trust of other human beings. They may be informed by past experiences (including his pre Halloween run in with the bullies) but they are preventing him from having a productive relationship. Sure he wants to have relationships, including sex, but he tries to do that from a place where he holds both his emotions and his personal issues (Double life, etc) at a distance. This results in more hurt which seems to reinforce the attitude he has taken.

The only positive thing I can see in all of this is his session with the counselor, at least she is helping him sort out that he only has two realistic choices. Also she has pointed out that hiding things from Nicole is bound to cause Val problems.

Tucker protests, "I don't have any problems trus- KEEP YOUR HANDS WHERE I CAN SEE 'EM GODDAMNIT!"

Mike snorts and interjects, "And you don't have any problems with stress, either."

Tucker glances at Mike. "I'm not stressed!"

They recite together, "I'm just terribly terribly alert."

Tucker glances back and demands, "And keep your hands where I can see 'em, you Commie mutant."

"At which point Tucker bursts into a stirring rendition of 'Alpha Complex Uber Alles'."

"We need to get the lyrics for that."

"No way," Mike says disgustedly. "Then you'd sing it out loud."

Interesting what Tuck would sing... And not sing.

Jack (whom we haven't seen for a while) would like to have Val sing with his group. Tuck would like to sing protest songs. When is he going to discover Sinead O'Connner?

Excuse me? I got attacked for listing them as set of *bad* alternatives (well, at least Da Boyz & Amy, Tu-Val *has* dated members of the Pack) to contrast with the "sticky problems" bit?

I'm not up to Da Boyz ninja standards. Nor (likely) up to dealing with the girls physically. Which leaves assault charges or long range attacks.

A set of bad alternatives. That describes most of them though Tuck has 'dated' both Jill and Pam. Both of whom are pack members, Amanda has indicated that she might be interested. I doubt any of the Boyz would date Val because they wouldn't be able to get over the fact that they all knew that he could piss against the wall so to speak.

As for Sabrina and Cory, I can't see Sabrina dating or having sex with Tuck, given how uncomfortable she was around Kelly when she first came out. I equally can't see Tuck getting involved with any of the Littles, given the two year age difference. Someone a little older (like Travis), yes, but not someone significantly younger.

Speculation: Sabrina slept with Tuck, or more specifically, Val. Not sexually, just spent the night, clothed, some time when she needed comforting over something. Hugging and maybe a few kisses on the cheek would be as far as it went.

Speculation #2: Tuck (or maybe Valerie) went on a not-a-date with Cory for some reason, perhaps more than once. Nothing serious, just the sort of friendly thing that he/she does with the others in the Pack, but it stood out because she was a freshthing rather than a junior like most of his other casual nights out. Added speculation: The night out was with Valerie, either because Cory wanted to emphasize the fact that it wasn't a date, or because she was curious about going on a date with a girl but didn't want to go out with Kelly when she wasn't sure how she felt about it. Or both, depending on how honest she was being with herself and with Val.
