so I just read this short webtoon called Always Human
it's an extremely cute f/f romance in a future with easy body modding (tho one of the protagonists has an immune disorder that doesn't let her use mods)
and it gave me such intense "us feels" for me and my partner, because it's so much like things that happen to us
you should read it
just be prepared
oh, and it's set in Western Australia, in case that's useful information, and one of the protagonists has two dads and the other's parents have a thirdner (is that a useful word? Third partner who joined the marriage later on?)
I'm rambling. I drank wine while I was reading and it made the feels stronger.
@DialMforMara oh, I loved it too! also the aesthetics!! and the bodymods!!!
when I got to the part where the author had the draw yourself and I might put you in the comic contest, I started trying to think of what I would do first if I had access to mods, and nothing really jumped out at me. Purple hair? Green eyes? Animated tattoos?
Of course, the simple answer is just
not have arthritis
make me sleep better and not be tired all the time
get rid of all my genetic disease risks
@DialMforMara were there even animal-related mods?
in my case: squirrel-like ears with long earspuffs (?), squirrel-like tail! and maybe dragon spikes down my spine :3
i have just recently thought again about those things and even set my thoughts in this always human world, even tough it's quite a while ago, that I read it.
oh and no boobs probably?
fictional body mods
@DialMforMara yeah, can totally relate to "trying out different boob configurations"...
the other mods I've been thinking about for so long. maybe i would keep them permanently. but also i don't know, how living in a body with animal mods would feel. so it's good it's reversable.
haha maybe i would change to different animal ears from time to time :D
