Fluffybutt Prose Poem: Jen

FPPs are one-paragraph backstories I wrote for the furries I met over telegram. They are written in the style of the abstracts that open each chapter of Victoria Lynn Schmidt's 45 Master Characters. I have about 20 so far; I'll be uploading them over the winter season as I work on other short stories and vignettes.

On every birthday's eve, Jen, the Lady Cat of cake frosting, enters the bakery and signals her flock of U.F. Snows to rain. Frosting and sprinkles blanket the confectionary within. She sits among the Olympian Weather Guild, having braved more than one negative vote against her wares; supposedly, they hardly constitute weather. Her political rivals conspire that she holds a seat due to affirmative action, a claim she will not speak publicly about. Her ode is the fabled "Raindrop Jingle," although lemon drops and gum drops have yet to join her repertoire. Perhaps, one day, when she upgrades her snowflock, we will see drops of all flavors diving alongside the frosting.
