1. Chapter 1 by Lady Emma - Likes: 34 Comments: 18 Word Count: 4,772 Hit Count: 664 Published: October 20, 2022

This is based on and highly referential to/sometimes direct-quoting the children’s book Popcorn by Frank Asch, which my toddler makes me read to him almost every night at bedtime. It’s a great book but heads up, it’s from 1979 and includes culturally inappropriate costumes.

I’m going to slap a mild trigger warning on this for casual references to nonspecific SA, but just as a fact of life for the women who worked for/associated with Hugh Hefner ever.

Takes place in season 5 after “Family” as Tara’s birthday is October 16th.
