By Rubber Lady Tarilyn Marilise Andrielle
This essay was the basis for my introduction to the book about the Sryl custom of "briding" and its description
hose who know us well know about the "Pink Horror". This was a period in our history that marked the end of the "meta civilization" which featured the clan wars and other things
This period in our history did more to shape our existence than anything since the First Great Rebellion
You will note that you do not see any dark-haired, dark-eyed amongst us, or violet-eyed. You may think to yourself that since we are obviously capable of having such. Why is this so?
Well some time ago. our mode of dress started to become rigid, with the lighter-haird wearing white dresses and gowns and the dark-heared wearing pink. Now, our two favorite colors are pink and purple and have been for just ever so a group of us wearing pink as part of their dress would not be seen as strange or wrong or probably even noticed
However there grew to be a dislike between the light and dark haired and eyed. Soon the Dark's wanted to split the inhabited part of Monda di Aurea into two separate lands where each would live separately from the other. It seems that they thought that the Lights considered them inferior which was totally untrue. However, they got their wish
Not long thereafter. The Darks launched a sneak attack on the Lights and enslaved them. as part of this the Lights had their white things taken away from them and were dressed universally in short rubber dresses and mostly babydolls, with rubber underthings and diapers under cloth "baby" diapers, and kept as rubber baby girl slaves. The queen said "Well, sister-kin. you have prided yourselves too long on your lovely white gowns, let us see how haughty you are in pink babygirl rubber babydolls. Short and trollopy; the perfect punishment garment for the Proud"
This is called "The Pink Horror" and ended with the Second Great Rebellion. Because rubber treatment was the biggest part of it, This part of history is the special area of interest, knowledge and activity of Rubber Ladies and especially La Donastella Rubber which I am
The slave-holders called themselves "Sryl". This is from the very earliest Parla, meaning "Lady"; but a special kind of lady. It means a special kind of overseer from the days of Malicia and until the Great Rebellion. They added "sryl'" to their names and it gradually became very common that they were also violet-eyed as well as dark-haired. Their slaves, being the light and meteallic haired, they dubbed "Blondies", even though their hair color included silver, copper, pearl, snow white, and even light brown They also called them Darylette", "Little/Baby Darylette", "Rubber Diaper Girl","Rubber Babygirl", "Mommy's Babygirl", "Babydoll" and "Babygirl" or some mixture of them. That term has become a vicious taunt, even if used for a girl with gorgeously golden hair. Sandra's (Bridget Alicia La Rochelle's very dear friend) mother mistakenly called my cousin Dorielle Arilise Tiara "Blondie" once and got a very stern lecture, had to say she was sorry and do a report for a school class of fairylets about the Pink Horror. You do NOT call a fairy or fairylet "Blondie"
The ordinary attire for the slaves became a rubber diaper made in such a way that it always caressed the chastity area and rub on the flower, but would allow wet to flow into the exceedingly thick cloth diaper. This diaper was so very thick for two reasons: First to be very much felt by Blondie between her legs and keeping her from being able to cross or close them above the knee to make her feel helplessly like a baby and trollopy. Second, so that she could be kept wet nearly all the time. The only time she was dry was while being changed and for maybe 5 or so minutes after that. A most interesting thing about that arrangement was that Blondie did not feel wet for a long time, several hours had passed. What happened was the way the rubber diaper was cut let the wet go into the "babygirl" diaper only between the legs, this would then go through to the rubber panties that were over the diaper, spread along the inside of the panties and be absorbed by the diaper. This meant that the diaper was being wet from the outsdie in and the rubber diaper put a waterproof barrier between the wet cloth and Blondie's chastity area. The result was that it kept her dry much, much longer so she did not need to be changed nearly as often which meant less work for My Lady which meant that there was a good reason to keep Blondie in rubber diapers no matter how she cried or complained about it and My Lady made the most of it. Worn over that were a snap-on rubber panty and a pull-on rubber panty. Then the "babydoll" a short "baby lenght" off the shoulder rubber dress with a matching rubber panty. At no time did any cloth touch the slave's body. Below are examples of the kind of babydolls that were put on the slaves as ordinary day-to-day dress to make her have constant rubber feeling over most of her body, and, being "baby length [very high-waisted and halfway to the knee; ideal for diapering like a baby]" and show her status. They are also called "Darylette Dress", since, according to tradition, the first one was used on the (in)famous Princess Darylette, and are still in use to this day. A girl dressed in such is called and often taunted as "Darylette" and her first name like "Darylette Floricia". Another Fairy name for a babydoll is "traditional" since they are so much a part of fairy life. For example "it was clear that Dorielle Alise Anestra was a recognized trollop as she was in a yellow see-through traditional with the usual pearlescent slip"
A RUFFLES & RIBBONS GIRLS HOME (D'Arielle) Rainflower [Rubber] Girl in her Sryl Babydolls
I can see that the little girl in the picture is in the care of one of my star pupils; Bridget Aicia La Rochelle, and is in for a very long afternoon or night with a good amount of wriggling, wetting, crying and sobbing ahead of her. Bridget Alicia's brooch that she wears on her Rubber Lady's (that is her standing in our world) cloak was not made from an elite Sryl Lady Rubber's pandant for no good reason (and I am almost a bit sorry I gave it to her but she won it as a prize in a class project contest)
The pictures are current, in-use, babydolls that are typical of what "Blondies" were dressed in, almost always personally, by the Sryl Ladies, who took great delight in subduing and dressing them. Subduing the poor slave was done by tickling her, sometimes vigorously to humiliate or sometimes very slowly to make it last much longer, not to the point where she could no longer feel things, nor to the point where she could not move, but to the point where Blondie could only struggle feebly against what she knew was coming. At which every Rubber Fairy, from La Donastella on down to the most recent novice, child's nurse, and every Rubber Nurse and nurse's aide, is very adroit. As a severe chastizement garment, the Sryl babydoll has survived to this day, unchanged. The very short, off the shoulder rubber babydoll left a good deal of the girl's body exposed, making it clear to the poor thing that her body was to be done with as the Sryl Lady desired (and the un-exposed parts of the body, being in rubber, were also not very comfy, either, Especially when My Lady decided she wanted to "get feelies" and lightl rub her hands on Blondie's babydoll, which rubbed the babydoll on the mostly helpless girl's body). It must be understood that for thousands of years before the Sryl, unless she is being heavily chastized, permanently chastized or treated as a trollop, from the time she is 2-1/2, a Fairy's dress or skirt is always below the knee. This goes back to the days of Malicia, who kept our earliest ancestors in dresses that were 3/4 to the knee to make them her "Little Darlings"; in Parla, the language she spoke, "P'chana". So to us, being treated properly, and recognizing that we are persons, our dresses and skirts are, by custom and rule, below the knee. This is so strong that a fairylet can be made miserable as part of punishment simply by having a moderately above the knee dress put on her for the day. Because of its babyish implications, an above-the-knee dress or skirt, being easily lifted has been taken as an invitation to lift or get under the dress, with the promise of rubber panties waiting to be felt. For most Fairies, this is quite irresistible. So the shrot skirt, rubber and smelling a bit like dried wet meant that a Blondie could count on being fondled for hours on end before being wetsied very slowly; all for the casual amusement of her Sryl mistress. While we always had a sense of chastity built into us, this garment has made us be more ill at ease in anything that leaves much of our bodies uncovered, especially above the knee skirts and dresses because they are easily lifted or gotten under like a baby's. Other names for Blondies reflected this, like "Babygirl", "Baby Doll" and "Rubber Baby". Like "Poor Baby Doll Melisandra: Come to Mommy Alystra and put your head on my shoulder and have a good cry". Along with "Blondie" these were used by Fairylets in the childish taunting that went on, along with references like above the knee skirts or comments about one's adversary's knees, all of which goes on to this day. A reflection of this Fairy custom is part of the reason why the girls at a D'Arielle Girls' Home are kept in above-the-knee skirts and dresses to remind them that they are subject to the persons in the longer ones and why the skirts are gradually lengthened as a girl grows. Even among the girsl, longer skirts confer higher status and part of chastizement is being "put back" in shorter skirts. A girl just cannot wait until she gets her first below-the-knee skirt. This is also of practical use to the Housemother. The longer skirts and being told that if she does things that involve her flower she will get the rubber feeling on it and the "chastity training" that she got between ages 4 and 8 with rubber panties make it very likely that a girl will not come home with a "little surprise", added to by the fact that if she does, she can say "farewell" to all the cloth in her life and "hello" to rubber diapers, panties, very short and easily lifted dresses and skirts and ESPECIALLY babydolls, and bedding as well as many visits from me or one of my ladies
Along with being what it is: Humiliatingly short-skirted and rubber, The babydoll that was adopted to put on the slaves did not have to be of exact size and was, therefore, easy to make and put on the Blondie. It is just a long, full-circle skirt and matching panty; both rubber which made it very easy to care for, usually needing only to be wiped down with a damp cloth both inside and out. They come in 2 kinds, Children and Grownups. The Childrens' come in 5 sizes (lengths and "waist" size) and the adults in 3. As part of dressing the girl, the elastic at the top would be turned over to adjust the babydoll's length from between the shoulder to a bit above the nipples to half-way to the knee. This created the famous. "sryl ruffle" that became emblematic of the inferior status of the "Blondies". Over time, this ruffle grew in size to absurd proportions in the families' competitions to show how pathetically helpless their Blondies were, often reaching a length of the outstretched hand to the wrist. Most of the time the obviously rubber undergarment, a kind of pearlescent slip, put under a see-through or almst see though babydoll of any color so the body would not show and to give it an attractive look, or a see though one put under an opaque babydoll, if put on the Blondie, was allowed to "peek out" from the hem of the babydoll; the width of two fingers or a smidgeon more. This was to say that, for letting an undergarment show, Blondie was trollopy and was too childish to be let to run her own life, letting her underslip show and needed to be "constatnly looked after" for being unladylike and show that the girl's underthings were also rubber so that is what she felt right on her body "where it does the must good" (and also, wink wink, invite the hand of a would-be fondler). Other purposes served by this underslip were that it made the Blondie more noisy in the way that only rubber rubbing on rubber can which tempted Sryl ladies to the point where, after awhile, she could no longer reisist the urge and soon had "Little " or "Baby Blondrielle ["Blondie" + Andreielle; a name not used since the Second Great Rebellion]" firmly in her grasp and was applying her skills, and presented My Lady with two layers of that scrumptious material and she would put her hands between them for "double feelies" or "double yummies". As you can see from the pictures above, that, too is still in use
The two major type of rubber underslips used under babydolls
Some of the nastiest Sryl insults implied that a lady was overly kind to her "charges": "She changers her Blondies more than she changes her own baby", "One wonders if her little Blondies' skirts are not longer than hers". "I wager that she has more than a few blonde hairs on her head", "Her Blondies' rooms smell more like [lilac, rose, etc] than they ought", "I wonder just who puts a rubber diaper on whom", "Some day she will learn what rubber babydolls were made for", " It would not surprise me that she takes off her tiara when she kneels before her Blondies", "The only time her Blondies feel rubber is when they fondle her between the legs". This last may have had a grain of truth. A lady would put on a thick satin-covered diaper and a pair of rubber panties then antagonize one or more of her Blondies quite severely, maybe even feigning to take off the girl's tiara. The Blondie, so provoked would push the lady onto the floor, not reaizing that her tormentress was a willing partner in all of this: A Fairy's natural response is to try and rub an opponent between her legs. Done to an unwilling person, this is taken by Fairies as one of the worse kinds of rape because, if you can lay her down, lift her skirts and get between her legs and make her have feelings that she does not want, you can do anything you wish to her, even without rubber, and she can do absolutely nothing but lay there and feel it. Well, Blondie would do that. The thick satin-covered diaper would massage My Lady's floower and give her a yummy, which Blondie would realize since My Lady was not screaming and crying. Adding to the fact that Blondie had just given the Sryl Lady a yummy was the fact that she had been tricked into doing so. But that is not what was meant by the taunt
The Sryl loved the smell of The nursery: baby powder, rubber and especially dried wet, while feeling rubber and made their Blondie slaves and slave quarters smell mildly like tham. Along with the shortness of the babydoll, it meant "babyish", wetting and helpless, to be done with as another wishes. In a landmark case, here is what happned.A Lady, Tiara sryl'D'Aagua was visting the home of another. Andrilyn sryl'Floretta. when Lady Andrilyn answered her door, she had been in the process of dealing with her blondies, smelled a bit of the nursery, and was still wearing her see-through overdress and rubber cloak. Lady sryl'D'Agua was so stricken with the smell and the rubber that she began to vigorously fondle Lady sryl'Floretta, to the point of evem getting under her dress and giving her feeling that are resevered only for the married. Of course. Lady sryl'Floretta, having been totally humiliated, took the matter to court. The Court ruled that the smell and presence of rubber were a sufficient cause for Lady sryl'D'Agua's actions, "taking her away from herself" and losing all control, and she was found without guilt. In the later times of Sryl rule, the Ladies often wore breechcloths that could be undone from the back and pulled away so that she could stand over the Blondie and wet on her without haveing to take off a pair of panties. This also could be done in an elaborate way, laying the poor thing on a large rubber sheet after a vigorous tickling, then, after wetting on her, closing the sheet around the victim who slowly got more smelly than she already was. So attuned to the smell did the Sryl ladies become that they could identify each of their slaves by how she smelled, even blindfolded
Every Sryl house had a special room that was done in pink and smelled like dried that had a bed which being all in rubber, could be used for changing diapers, a sink and a rocking chair, and was the Chastizement Room. A Sryl Lady would take one of her slaves to the rocking chair for an afternoon of fun and frolic. The Blondies hated the smell, feeling of rubber and being in the place where she was chatized. This made her struggle more fiercely and her wrigglings were more energetic and her sobs more pathetic all of which, with the smell, added quite a bit to My Lady's enjoyment. This has evolved into the "pink room" in every Fairy house where little girls are chastized. The Chastizement Room at RUFFLES & RIBBONS GIRLS' HOME is made after the chastizement areas that were in the slave quarters in all sryl homes. Each Blondie had her own little room that was done in rubber and the Sryl Ladies enjoyed putting each one of their "little ones" to bed. tucking her into the rubber bedding
Occasionally, a Lady would get in with the Blondie for the night, wearing a night-dress called a "Melestra's house-dress" that was rubber outside and the milkweed satin for which we are known, inside for a night of enjoyment, knowing that all the other Blondies could hear the goings on and knew what was being done to their comrade, that it could be done to them and that My Lady enjoyed doing it
As time passed the dark haired and eyed became more and more cruel. As an example of just how low they sank, it was often the custom to offer an overnight guest a "Little Treat": In this case a real "little treat". This was a very young Blondie, often as young as five and no older than eight. The major attration of this was that the little girl had never been through this kind of ordeal and since this was all new to her, was very reactive, screaming, crying and writhing far more than one who had been though this before. Sometimes it was a girl whose second time this was which meant she had an idea of what it would be like so it was worse for her and she showed it. The "Little Treat" would often be prepared for this in front of her family, who knew full well what was happening and would happen to their little girl, so that they too could "benefit" from this as well as the guest watched their misery. More than one "Little Treat" did not survive this and the corpse was returned to her family as a final insult. However, other things happened as well. As they resorted more and more to slavery, the Sryl became dependent on their "blondie" also called "baby doll", referring to any girl with light or metallic hair color; gold, silver, pearl or whihte, slaves so they bred them heavily and the numbers of blondies grew in proportion to the others, whose numbers also dwindled. At the end of 3 lifetimes there were about 5,000 Darks and 125,000 "blondies". "Blondie" became an epithet and more than one duel was fought over a claim that a person was "tainted with slave blood". The dark-haired soon developed elaborate beliefs that the "blondies" were not capable of caring for themselves and needed to be constantly overseen lest they get into trouble. Also that because of their indolence, the blondies did not feel much of anything so that the things done to them had to be quite harsh to "get through the fog of their non-being" and they did not feel these things that much so no real cruelty was being inflicted on them. The Darks let their use of magic grow weak since they could get one of their slaves to do the work. Their treatement became so harsh that the "blondies"' bodies developed an aversion to pink: Even pink Fairy satin tickles us excruciatingly. To wear anything pink, we need to wear somethng under it so that the pink material does not touch our bodies
After 90 generations. they committed the unthnkable horror. Gradually making the "blondies" to which the terms "pet" and "dolly" were added, less and less "person", often saying it was for their own good since they cannot care for themselves until one day they sought to do the unthinkable: Deprive us of our tiaras
Thus ensued the Second Great Rebellion. This was over in a night. The Sryl had let their skills at magic dwindle to almost nothing and we outnumbered them 25 to one. Rather than being killed, they were turned into indestrctible dolls that survive to this day; all 5,000 of them
This has left us scarred in two ways, we cannot wear anything pink directly on our bodies. Every now and then, a child is born with violet in her eyes. Thankfully, no dark-haired has been born since the Second Great Rebeillion. We fear the violet-eyed for what they may become. Children born with any shade of violet in their eyes are put out. This is a horror to us because a Fairylet does not get her hair and eye color until she is 4. To have a child that one has lived with and cared for taken from her is a mother's nightmare. This was part of the origin of the phrase. "We commit small horrors to avoid having to live large one" and "the Curse [of being violet-eyed]"
Somehow some 800 years ago, some of these outcasts survived and ended up living in the Taris Islnads far to the south. We soon noticed that those put out vanished quickly. We seearched the land and found their home. Rather than obliterate them we concluded that at that distance they were no threat to us and contacted them, explained the whole story and that we were glad that they now live as they are attractive and said that they could have that area all to themselves as a reservation to run as they saw fit. Well they wanted nothing to do with us and we did not blame them and as long as they did not threaten us, we would not harm them and in fact hoped for a time when we could be rejoined since it was two races breeding separately that spawned all of this horror.
Some 400 years ago one of our spies was captured and set up an agreement where they could come to visit on special Fairy holidays so long as they would surrnender their wands to members of the clans that they would be in and live with them while here and be under special protection with the services of an Adept for each at their beck and call. As they number only about 1,000,000 and we are twenty-two millions strong, they can pose no threat, nor are they inclined to attampt anything foolish. They did not survive on stupidity, to which both Queens agreed. Their Queen being the outcast daughter of the spy in question. A sort of embassy was set up in the house where she lived, which she described as "...a gorgeous home set on a hill. which, if I were to live here, is where I would make my abode". As part of the agreement, her "punishment" (wink wink) for spying was that she had to remain there 11 of 12 months of the year for the rest of her life, unless instructed or given permission to leave directly by the queen. Well, this was made use of by our Queen appointing her as the Ambassedress to the Taris People and her family moved in with her. She used this to make the lives of the Violets better materially. This at first met resistance but when it was demonstrated that these were real imporvments and they would develop a system of doing things that could lead to trade with each side being strong in her own right and that this could further the reunitement as equals, and that these skills were properly their birthright as Flori di Estelle, not a gift to an inferior people, they saw the wisdom of taking it and made good use of the opportunities
This is where we stand today
As to the "gifts" of the Sryl; we have:
