elizabethmccoy: An anthropomorphic feline's face, with the words "Uniqueness Counts" (Uniqueness Counts)
Prompt by LJ's Tuftears

"You will look fabulous," the signal-flare crimson Kintaran promised.

His target, a svelte female with unfortunately common tabby markings, flicked her ears nervously. "But... you have a hairdresser's. I..." She gulped. "I don't want the 'popular' cut."

Flare put his own ears back in indignation. "You think I'd be k'eetha? Please! Have faith! Credits entirely refunded if k'eetha!"

"All right..."

Over an hour later, mane curled and galaxies nestled within every formerly-plain black stripe, the Kint fem purred happily while she handed over her cred-card.

Several hours afterward, both Kintarans purred happily, and no credits had been swapped at all.

Maternal Considerations

"Maaaaaaara!" Farafinleet collided with Coli-nfarin in a wet-nosed tackle-glomp involving arms, forelegs, and a flailing tail. "Kinahran won' lemme go wiiiiiiith her!"

Klarin-yal, Coli's sister and the clanship's captain, helped peel off Coli's younger daughter. "Well, go with one of the others. Kurah-ral, maybe?"

"She's wif Kinahran! An' Ta-Pera! An' Teecoli! An' Ravahcroy!"

That was nearly all the clanship's almost-adult females. The sisters exchanged glances over Farafinleet's outraged white ears. Coli-nfarin said, "Find your brother and say he has to take you for a half-hour."

"But he's boooooooring!" Farafinleet wailed, ears down, while skulking off down the corridor.

When she was out of even keen-eared Kintaran earshot, Klarin-yal muttered, "There's a privateer in dock, I hear. Mars Rainbow. The girls're probably off drooling. Little young, but yours is nearly as big as you now!" She grinned at her petite sibling.

Coli frowned. "I'm not sure I approve. They've only a few Kintarans. And your daughter is with Kinahran."

"Urm." Klarin-yal's ears went down. "Can't think what they'd want with bipeds, though."

"Well, if she takes up with an Mmsar, at least they've tails."

"Yours likes languages. Might pick a Human."

Their tails puffed, the sisters went to find their offspring.
