Living a Life by Rachel1987 by DataPacRat Living a Life by Rachel1987 by DataPacRat
Drawn by rachel1987 ( [link] ) , originally posted at [link] .

Artist's notes:

This is a commission that I did for datapacrat! He asked that I draw a scene from a story that's being written about his characters by someone else.

Pretty much his character (Data, in the bed) is recuperating in the hospital and while she's there she'd living her life through this other mouse. Both of them are wearing collars and glasses that transmit what's going on in real time.

I'm rather happy with how this came out. I was unsure about it when I first got the commission but it turned out much better than I expected!

Wow, that's an interesting story!  And he can talk to his "Avatar" and tell her what to say?

Well, they're both 'she's; and when everything is turned on, the connection is much more direct - what Dee in the hospital bed tries to say, the mousie at the cafe says. Just like however Dee tries to move her (missing) limbs, the mousie moves. The short story centred around this picture is at datapacrat.deviantart.com/art/…. :)

I read it, it's very fascinating!  Why her avatar went ahead and actually had the daughter and kept the guy?  Many would say, oh it's just stupid writing, but I can clearly see how it could happen.  Danielle might have checked in on the relationship Dee was having with this wolf David.  She might have thought, "Yeah, these two are so perfect!  And I get to hear every intimate word!  So fascinating!  I am getting ideas how rewrite that great novel I have been working for so long."  When Dee proposed that she(in Danielle's body) and David go back to her place, it might have been against the rules for DSO's.  However Danielle might have been all for it, as she might have clearly enjoyed the life experience she was gaining from this.  Also David might have been attractive to Danielle as well, this perfect handsome self sacrificing hero.  I can totally see this!

As are her legs; and how she lost her limbs is a story unto itself, which I'm working on getting written.

I've posted a flash-doll at [link] (caution: artistic nudity) which shows both her limbless state, as well as several of the prosthetic replacement limbs she eventually acquires.

All three of the furries in the picture are real, living, breathing people.
