This is your confirmation that Clover also had PAIS.
Someone should maybe mention that to Hyacinth, huh?
Leif: This explains a thing I was wondering about . . . Wait, are you feeling okay? Do you want to go home and hug your cat?
Thorn: I want to take a nice slow walk with you! Finish the thing you started to say.
Leif: Well . . . That time you got magically transformed to have tentacles? You were Worried about getting all your original scars back. But not all your original . . . parts. I was very impressed with how cool you were!
Thorn: And now you know I’m not cool?
Leif: No! Now I see you were cool because you had them grown back once already.
For a while, I also thought maybe you had sex-related dysphoria? So you’d already gotten magically-induced phalloplasia to fix that.
Thorn: Ah, Leif . . . I learn new words from your cop shows, not your medicine shows.
Leif: Oh! It’s, um . . . when you want the parts, but your genes didn’t make them.
Thorn: Ohhh, I know what you mean. It’s a good guess. But it’s not me. One of my moms — She had a thing that I really don’t know your word for. But it means I could get the “Y” set of genes from her.
It’s also the reason my sister and I were made in a med clinic . . . When I was young, I didn’t know there was anyone who couldn’t have kids at all.
Leif: . . . It’s not like you’d want them with me anyway. I can’t afford — They’d be taken away.
