Metamorphosis Chapter 23

T* News from TG Forum -

Raquel and Mark, seemingly two parts of one person separated after drinking a strange potion, have been transported to another land, possibly another world. There they confront "the Magistrate" who is apparently responsible for their condition. In a house that is a duplicate of their childhood home Raquel meets her "mother" and then her "father." Then she finds herself in a horrid swamp confronted Guug, an ogre who tries to protect her from wolves. Raquel "becomes the light" vanquishes the wolves, and her friend Lydia appears. Memories return and this world with the horrid swamp and the creatures seem to be a variant of the real world. See what happens in Chapter 23.

Dina's Diner is always loaded with tasty treats. On the Specials menu today we find a large helping of four young boys in the Philippines who dress in drag and sell peanuts.

Then she spices things up with a search for Russian crossdressers, and brings it all together with the strategies used by Takoyaki vendors in Japan to move more octopus balls.
