more seriously though, when is jobe going to tell the others in the collective about the 'addiction' to sperm from the first guy the have sex with?
about the massively increased sensitivity in their erogenous zones.

and all the other little enhancements that he snuck into his perfect girlfriend design.

Stupidity is a capitol offense, a summary not indictable one.

Jobe will assure you that it is all there in the release documentation (not that anyone other than Ayla or Jadis could wade through that to find the information).

Having become his own perfect woman, I would expect her perspective on those traits may have changed and she spends some of her time engineering "cures" for them.

that is my point, maybe the others were told in the paperwork, but Belphy had no paperwork.

She did tell Pheebs pretty early on, in Second Book of Jobe Part 4 . Pheebs was... displeased with the news.

“Feebs?”

“Yes?”

“There’s one other thing I didn’t tell you about drow girls.”

“Worse than the other stuff? Oh, this’ll be good, then.”

“Hmmm, yeah, that’s about right. It’s about being a virgin.”

“No worries there. Between the twins and the new toys, I’m happy as a clam. Which in this case is perhaps a delightfully appropriate Americanism.”

“Good,” I said. “Because it’s possible that the first time you sleep with a man… he’ll own you.”

“Say again?” Her voice dropped into almost a growl. “You’d better explain that one.”

It was a secret I’d been sitting on (literally) for several days now, but I owed it to her. “Well, see, this was supposed to be my dream girl, right? Naturally, everyone else would be attracted to her, too. I wanted to be able to give her something that no one else could give her. But I don’t believe in mind control.”

“None of your words are comforting me,” Belphoebe warned.

“So I fixed it. I’d just need to sleep with her once, see? Then she couldn’t resist me.”

“Get to the point!”

“You can trace the sexual nerves for human women. There are two primary concentrations, in the clitoris, and about half-way up the vagina. The so-called ‘Gräfenberg spot.’ Then there are secondary sites – the nipples, areas of the skin. I increased the nerve endings, increasing the sensitivity of all of these regions. You’ve probably noticed that yourself.”

“What did you DO?”

“Modified nerve cells,” I explained. “Like the scent detectors, in the nose. Only, these aren’t in the nose. They form a tertiary sexual concentration, more powerful than any of the others. They’re sensitized to the chemical structures in semen, and the exposed nerve endings surround the cervix.”

“So,” my daughter ground out, “whenever there’s semen spraying over my cervix, I’ll, what? Come like you wouldn’t believe?”

“Well… yes and no. I mean, we’ll always be able to sense true semen down there, and it’ll definitely bring pleasure, but the chemical detectors will form a special bond with the first type of semen encountered. As you know from bloodhounds and the like, everyone has their own unique scent, and that’s what we—”

“Mother, SHUT UP. Just tell me what this means.”

“Well…” I gulped. “The first man… the first semen… that will sensitize you. Permanently.”

“I thought you didn’t LIKE mind control!”

“I don’t! This isn’t mind control! It’s just… a little extra. A special gift.”

“That does WHAT?”

“Uh… the first man who, um, has his semen on your cervix, I can’t be sure, I haven’t tested it, but… you’ll come.”

“Yes? And?”

“I think it should be pretty mind blowing,” I admitted.

“That’s it?”

“Yes. But I don’t think you get it,” I said. “I mean, really mind-blowing. When he’s inside you, when he comes, you’ll taste it. You’ll feel it. It will feel like it’s going right to all your most sensitive spots at once. Whenever he comes inside you, you’ll instantly come so powerfully that you won’t believe it. But only for him. Your first man. You’ll lock onto his scent, and then he’ll be the only one that ever does that for you, for the rest of your life.”

“Oh, that’s just fucking lovely.”

“But, on the good side,” I pleaded, “think about it! Every time your man gets off, you do, too! Simultaneous orgasm, every single time. Not only will you be happy, but you’ll make him feel really good, too. Men like to believe that they’re keeping their women happy, and he will be, won’t he? Heck, by my calculations, you’ll be spasming so hard that it will be like a first-class workout, just by having sex.”

“But only for the stupid wanker that fucks me first.”

“Yeah. So… pick someone that will stick around. And be a good father. And someone who will live a long time. And,” I realized that I was whispering this last part, “someone who will love you forever.”

“Fucking wonderful.”

“Because even if you come to hate him,” I realized, “I mean, hate him as much as I hate your father, you won’t be able to stay away from him. You’ll always want him back there inside you…”

“Great. Stay a virgin for the rest of your life. Your first boyfriend better be The One. No pressure, it’s just eternity.”

“What have I done…?” I asked myself.


Out, damnéd Spot! Bad Doggy!

But that's not why I committed Thread Necromancy today. This comment I made in another thread today is something I thought should be discussed further here, as it crystallized a number of thoughts that had been going through my head for a while now:

Me, Myself, and I wrote: Seriously, the seemingly-casual changing of Jobe's legal gender? [...] It wasn't anything of the sort, obviously, as even given Carson's sweeping authority there's no way she could have done it in the off-the-cuff manner it was shown as being. It was almost certainly the case that the school's legal team had had the change of identity paperwork prepped in advance, even if they did have to rush its completion when the Belphoebe thing happened, including getting a local magistrate - whether in a US federal court, or by Ellie Donner as the representative of the Medawihla tribe - and Emperor Joe to sign off on it. They probably began working on it as soon as the possibility came up, and would have been conferring with Joe from the start.

This also means that all the discussions with Gizmatic, and the whole disinheritance thing in "Saks and Violence", were - as Jadis rightly surmised - also a piece of theater, one which was probably scripted even before Jobe talked to him about the initial accident, possibly even planned with Carson's collusion. True, they clearly didn't expect the specific actions she took, as there were a lot of variables they couldn't have known about ahead of time (Anti-Chump's and Dr. Venus' involvements specifically), but it seems likely they knew she'd do something drastic and foolish which would leave her stuck and desperate for a way out of the situation.

I'm sure given the existence of Poe, the other gender changes that seem to happen occasionally on campus, Tool/Demona, Folder, Reach, Eldritch, and Theophany just in the Fall of 2006, that there is a procedure for creating new identities for the gender and major body changing students. In Jobe's case, the only paperwork that needs to be done is by Emperor Giz, who happens to be an associate of Ms. Hartford, enough of an associate that Jobe seems to think he can presume on that association.

The Second Book of Jobe wrote: I should have been more worried, but Amelia (as I called her in private) was a frequent guest at Karedonia. Given the nature of Dad’s business, he had plenty of reason to call upon one of the finest computer experts in the world. Miss Hartford made a good living, just on what Dad paid her. And best of all, it was all open and aboveboard. So I smirked inwardly, but outside I schooled my expression to worried concern.


Consider the number of students that show up without any real ID. Jade, Ribbon, Sphere, Knockoff, Diamondback and Anomaly, Bladedancer, Carmilla, and who knows how many others. Some of those don't even have any sort of legal guardian to allow them to attend.

So they must have some sort of procedure already set up to deal with identity changes for staff and students.

A minor point of clarification ... Knockoff has a set of identifying paperwork - the best her very-well-paid mother Setup could afford, and given some of Setup's connections in various intelligence agencies, it's hard telling exactly what her country and city of birth are listed in the Whateley paperwork.

And no doubts Whateley has already figured out her true name and other minor such details.

I agree that there's got to be a streamlined process for this in place, sure, but that most likely means something that takes weeks instead of years. True, we generally don't see all of that, but this is because, a) most of this is done over time, with only the initial decision to initiate the process being shown, b) it often involves creating a new identity ab novo anyway, and that's actually easier (if technically less legal in most cases) than changing an existing one, and c) as a matter of storytelling, it is dramatically unnecessary to show those sorts of details in most cases as they at best only contribute flavor while slowing the pacing.

In other words, we only see the parts needed to convey the story. That doesn't mean the other parts don't happen. While there are cases where more detail is shown, in most of those instances doing so served a purpose in the story (such as underscoring Ayla's distress about his legal and economic status in his origin story - and even in that case, we only really see the result, when Ayla gets his new paperwork etc. in the mail from Goodkind International, not the actual process).

I expect that once it was clear that Jobe might be heading that way, the legal department started the process in case it needed to be handled, to ensure that it went as smoothly as possible (and as quietly as possible, given the significance and sensitivity of this for the Karedonian government). Carson and/or Hartford probably notified them to do so once they heard about it, as it would be prudent to be ready for several contingencies given the uncertainties involved and the lead time available.

I'd forgotten that a US TLA had taken care of new ID's for them.

Several of those people showed up with at least an MID, Sphere, Ribbon, and Noms. Whateley has Jade's birth ID, but Jade had no Jade Sinclair ID, and no one to vouch for her identity.

What legal department? Amelia called Joe, explained, and Joe said OK. Jobe is now a girl. A memo sent to the records department to change documents, end of story, and sending a new Passport. A Passport for 'Phoebe too.

As for other students, since Whateley is on Tribal lands, everything would be done through them, and there is probably a stack of signed, stamped, and sealed documents just waiting to have some names and dates entered.
