A deviation! From me! Try not to faint.
I read Pygmalion*, from Ovid's Metamorphoses, shortly after reading a discussion on the ethics of, when such technology becomes available, using simulated humans for scientific and medical testing. Naturally, the funny old thing that is my mind put the two together, and came up with this.
However, I couldn't think of a way to end it. Any ending I tried to give it would simply have felt forced. I decided that if an ending wasn't coming naturally, then unended would be the way I'd... end it.
I'm not all that happy with this piece. It's the sort of thing that seems like a wonderful idea in your head, but you can't quite do it justice when you put it down in words. I may redo this at some point, possibly with a more definite ending (though I actually kinda like it as it is), in which case I'll relegate this to Scraps. But for now, I give you Ivory.
Got rid of the bit about her being an Albino. It was really just to tie the story to Pygmalion, but I figured it wasn't really necessary. Besides, without it, she is completely undescribed, with the obvious exception of the final word of the piece.]
*For those who haven't read Pygmalion, I recommend it. The translation I used is here
