Admittedly Vanya realised that it might have been too soon to say they would be perfect, at least not in the way that she had meant, in the sense that the two on paper had similar desires, however that would not necessarily mean the practical results would reflect that. Vanya hoped it would though. Natalie had already shown a willingness to adapt to Vanya and she would do the same for her Human friend, her first and currently only Human friend actually now that she thought about it.

The two young women shared a laugh at the possibility of Starfleet Command hiding such reports however Vanya would have to agree that it was a different time back then. "I suppose so, I've seen some archived footage from back then and people certainly seemed to be more liberated than now, rather odd in some ways." she said before shrugging, it was a rather moot point now.

Now that they were done with Vanya's uniform and at the Romulan's question the Android could clearly see the slight horror wash over Natalie's face at the realisation that it was indeed her turn, judging by the way she bit and chewed on her lip and her eyes widening. Vanya felt terrible for the girl and almost offered to simply scan her and take her measurements if she preferred.

Vanya watched as Natalie's gaze shifted from her to the replicator, down to the tape measure that she was still holding and then back again before shifting over to the window. Surely the girl wasn't actually considering jumping out of it? They were four floors up!

Luckily that was not the case as the Human carefully extended her hand out towards the Android, offering her the tape. Giving her the warmest, supporting smile Vanya thought she could muster, she gently took the tape out of her hand and took a step back, giving the other girl space. "Yes, then we can be the envy of all the other cadets with our far more comfortable fitting uniforms!" she smiled.

Vanya had to admit that Natalie had better dexterity than her body would imply as she watched the woman get undressed. The Romulan couldn't help but run her eyes over the other woman as the dress was pulled over her head. Her skin certainly looked soft and smooth, much like Vanya's own skin albeit far more pale then her own. The Android briefly wondered how the woman's skin felt in comparison to her own and vice versa, wondering if Natalie would be able to tell with further exploring than the brief touches that she had had so far, that her skin was an artificial creation.

Also unlike Vanya, Natalie had tan lines that had faded, clearly it had been a bit of a while since Natalie had gotten any sun. It also was interesting to see that the faded lines did not follow the outline of her underwear, meaning that whatever outfit she did wear was not a bikini or underwear. Vanya meanwhile never had tan lines since she simply bathed in the nude, getting a complete tan.

Natalie's undergarments, while pretty simple and basic were a nice shade of light blue that matched each other and actually suited her skin tone and more so the blue of her eyes, which was a nice touch. However it could also be said that they might not be considered sexy underwear, most likely chosen for the practical and comfort reasons than anything else. 

At her question Vanya nodded and gave her a friendly smile. "Yes Natalie, it's more than good enough I will be able to get some accurate measurements with no problem." she told her. "If you don't mind me saying you look rather beautiful with your hair down like that and I must compliment you on the colour of your underwear, it really matches and brings out your eyes." she added.

Done with the compliments and not really thinking about what effect they might have on the poor girl beyond their intention to be a friendly set of compliments, Vanya seemlessly transitioned back to the task at hand. "Would you prefer to start with your upper body or lower body measurements? I will do whichever you prefer."

She felt like something being examined under the lenses of one of those old fashioned high power microscopes; on the spot, enlarged, and under scrutiny. It was stupid, of course. There was not any judging going on or anything like that. She wasn't some kind of science experiment. At least, Natalie didn't really think she was. The possibility was there. After all the Academy could see the whole Cross Species Accommodation as some kind of experiment on cultural interaction between various and sundry species being forced to live in close proximity under high pressure academic situations.

When you put it like that Nat, it's sure fire got to be an experiment. Your life is an experiment. They might even be watching you now.

The sad part was that she was only half joking, even in her own head.

Newly founded conspiracy theory (that was hardly new at all) aside, Natalie knew she was under some scrutiny. Vanya's. Those sea green eyes were locked onto Nat with a razor like focus that she could feel. It was this, and not the slight chill from having disrobed that caused the martian's flesh to break out into a series of tiny goosebumps. From her bushy haired head all the way down to her trimmed (but not painted) toes, Natalie felt that gaze.

Clearly the girl was uncomfortable with praise. She fidgeted about when Vanya said nice things about her figure, her form, and how she looked in that moment. No one had paid her a compliment like that, and her initial urge was to either hide - unlikely given the current set up - or pass it off entirely. It was with this latter option she started, saying, "That's sweet of you," but stopping before she could add 'to say.' The latter would imply that Vanya said it only to be nice, and there was just something wrong with that notion.

Unless she is an amazingly competent con woman and as smooth a liar as ever walked, she...doesn't say something unless she means it, Natalie reasoned out fairly swiftly. Or, she hasn't yet, in any case. Which means she really thinks...

Shit.


Lifting her left leg up a bit, Natalie rubbed the back of her right calf, then stabbed her toe back down into the freshly cleaned carpet and wiggled her foot from side to side, which set a bit of a sway to her hips. In a small voice that seemed all the smaller for the red that had crept along that pale skin, from her face, down her neck and flushing out over her chest, Natalie murmured a tiny, "Thank you."

Those blue eyes looked away, batted the lashes a few times, and then darted back to Vanya. If anyone had a call to know what was an wasn't aesthetically pleasing, Nat reckoned it was the walking work of art she was going to be sharing a room with. Taking praise was never a strong suit of her's and now she was struggling to deal with the nicest thing anyone had ever said about her body. Never minding that Vanya was probably the first one to see so much of her body.

"I think we'd best proceed as before," Nat said, a little louder than her thank you. Of course, to a Romulan those words would have been equally clear she supposed. All ears, as the saying goes, she'd barely thought, before speaking and confirming, "We can take care of the top measurements first. Just let me know when to shoot my arms out."

After asking Natalie if she wanted to proceed with her measurements, the Android watched and waited for a reply, although it was obvious that her compliments had embarrassed the girl based on how much she started fidgeting and blushing. Then again the girl was very shy and based on her earlier comments it was entirely possible that not only had nobody ever said such things to her but it was also possible that this was the first time Natalie had ever been this naked in front of another person.

Natalie did finally managed to speak, telling her that it was sweet and eventually thanking her after some strange movement of her left leg and foot, although her voice was very quiet with the thank you. Vanya smiled softly and couldn't help but find her shy embarrassment slightly adorable, not that she would vocalize that, it might cause the girl to turn an even deeper shade of red than what she already was.

The way in which Natalie briefly looked away from her and batted her lashes before glancing back her to some people might have been construed as an act of flirting albeit while being embarrassing, however Vanya knew better, especially with this girl. In fact the Romulan wondered if the girl even knew how to flirt, the likelihood of that being true however was very very slim given the evidence. However what Vanya had said was true, Natalie was indeed a beautiful woman in her opinion and she really did look great with her hair flowing down into curls as it was.

When Natalie found her loud voice again, she suggested that they proceed as they had before, starting with her upper body and working their way down. Nodding, Vanya stepped forward and stretched out the tape measure as she made her way behind Natalie. Placing the tape measure on her left shoulder, she placed the tape along the rest of her body, across the base of her neck and across her other shoulder, making a mental note of the number, before realising how suspicious that was and quickly picked up a PADD and jotted down the number.

Next Vanya decided measure Natalie's neck and gingerly reached her long arms over and Natalie's head and down to the base of her neck, wrapping the tape lightly around it but tight enough to get an accurate measurement. To anybody who managed to somehow peek in through their fourth floor window, if they saw the tape it might look like the tall woman was trying to murder the woman, yet if they failed to notice the tape it would look like she was giving the woman a hug given how close the two were. Quickly noting down that number  down on the PADD as well Vanya allowed the tape to uncurl and pulled her arms outwards and around Natalie's body.

Circling around the young woman, Vanya smiled at her as their eyes met. "So far so good Natalie. It is however time for you to "shoot your arms out" as you put it." she said with a chuckle.

What followed wasn't all that bad. Natalie was keenly aware of the presence of Vanya as the other moved behind her, leaving the Ops Cadet to stare out the window. The grounds were lovely, to be sure, and the small walk earlier had brought a smile to her face. That old man was really friendly, she idly thought. An easier subject than the presence of someone very close behind her, and Nat in such a state of undress.

Every suspicion that Vanya had was quite accurate, even if the Romulan had more tact than to ask upon it to confirm. Natalie was wiggling her bare toes as she made an effort to stay still, feeling the light touch of the tape measure along her back, down her spine and the like. See, this isn't so ba -

Nat let out a soft gasp as hands came up, and a round, and the pressure of the tape settled in against her neck. Her pulse raced at the contact. Not that she thought Vanya was about to use the strip of flexible plastic as some for of garrote or anything like that, but simply the contact. She swallowed and tilted her chin back a bit, her hair spilling onto Vanya, and her bum gently resting against the taller woman's frame.

Intimate did not even begin to cover the position that Natalie was in, perhaps all the more so because of the precise, clinical nature of the act.  But it was over swiftly, and Nat felt she could breath again, as Vanya stepped away. The girl noticed a sudden lack of warmth, surprised by it, given that there was so little physical contact happening. Close, but not touching for the most part. And yet, and yet.

"Oh! Nat blinked a bit as Vanya came around the front of her, and she did just that, shooting her arms out to either side, a bit stiff and certainly swift. She held them out, felt her chest rise up a bit in the process and ran her tongue over the front of her teeth. "A decent scare crow impression," she mused aloud. Her eyes kept darting away from Vanya's but then coming back to meet the intense gaze. She feared this too would color her cheeks, but they were already red, and did not seem capable of flushing further for the moment.

Was I this close to her earlier?

So far the measuring was going well, although Vanya could tell that Natalie was anxious during the measuring of her shoulders and spine the Ops Cadet was doing pretty well so far, although her toes did wiggle almost as if it was the only thing stopping her from shuffling from foot to foot like Vanya had observed her doing, which wouldn't really help when it came to getting accurate measurements.

However Vanya kept a closer eye on her room-mate when she had wrapped her arms around her, not only for the gasp she let out but at the increased rate of her pulse that Vanya had detected, the last thing she wanted to do was make the poor girl faint...nor would she look forward to having to explain to the medical staff what had led up to the cadet's loss of conciousness.

Luckily Natalie did not in fact pass out and now standing in front of her, Vanya watched as she shot her arms out to either side, the motions a bit stiff and with ironically with an almost robotic movement but even more so that even Vanya herself could manage, which she found humorous, not that she showed any signs of that to the woman. She did however allow herself a chuckle at Natalie's decent scarecrow comment but shook her head. "While the pose is scarecrow like, I believe scarecrows are meant to be scary and you Natalie are anything but and I mean that in a good way." she smiled.

Opting to start by measuring Natalie's full wingspan now that her arms were extended first, she them placed the tap under her armpit and pulled the tape down along the side of her body. The back of Vanya's hand lightly grazing along Natalie's skin as she did so, however unlike Natalie who had apparently not felt when her own hand had grazed across Vanya's body, the Android felt every part of Natalie's warm, soft skin against hers, despite how lightly they were grazing. She could feel slight dips and bumps of Natalie's muscles and ribcage, albeit briefly as she stretched the tape down to her hip.

Taking a note of the numbers again and typing them on the PADD, Vanya stood up and, giving Natalie a warm smile, she handed her one end of the tape. "Hold this here please." she said as she placed the tape against Natalie's body, just beneath her new friends, slightly smaller yet still perfectly round and firm breasts and started pulling the tape around her body as she circled her, wrapping it around her chest and back and then around to the front again. "Thank you."" The android added with a smile as she took the end of the tape back and took note of those numbers too, typing them out on the PADD as well.

Taking a step back, Vanya glanced at the readings so far and nodded, the measurements she had written down were still matching perfectly for the measurements she had already calculated in her head for her fellow cadet. "You can lower your arms now Natalie." she smiled, before arching her eyebrow in thought. They would have to measure around the bust as well to make sure the top was not too tight around that area as well. "Natalie, will you always be wearing a bra under your uniform shirt? And if so will it be a push up one as we will have to also measure your bust since depending on your attire and the position of your breasts those will affect how tight your top will be." she asked.

Admittedly Natalie had not measured around her bust, just underneath it, possibly due to the fact that Vanya had been naked at the time. Luckily she had accounted for her own measurements and had added them to her uniform's specifications when she had replicated them, Natalie however would need to be measured as Vanya knew her dimensions and what type of bras she wore, on the occasions that she wore one but the Android did not know Natalie's and could not simply adjust them herself.

Later in the night, and again over months, and even years to come, Natalie would remember this moment. Where Vanya had been wrapped around her, measuring her neck. And for a long, long time, she wouldn't understand why it would come back into her thoughts. Just then, however, she was simply grateful that the girl had stepped back to enter her measurements into the PADD for further computations. It gave her a moment to breathe before her friend - Yes, I think we'll be friends - was back and taking measurements from the front.

Her comment went over with a modicum of amusement and then a compliment, which Natalie was not expecting. She laughed at that, trying not to shake too much. But Vanya was quite right and she shook with mirth despite her best efforts. "Well, you're certainly not wrong," Natalie agreed, shaking her head as that wouldn't throw any of the measuring off. "I don't think I've ever managed to scare anyone at all."

Smiling now, a bit more relaxed, she took a slow, deep breath. A shiver ran along her body as the other girls hands kept brushing all over her skin. She wasn't exactly sensitive to the touch, exactly, but by the same token she was unused to contact in general, aside from her fathers hugs, and specifically any kind of contact in most of the places she was being touched. Thus, there was a keen sense of what was happening to her that made it difficult not to fidget.

"Huh? Okay. I can do that," Natalie said after Vanya had stepped away for a moment and the Martian and shaken her limbs out a bit and rolled her head from side to side. Taking an active part in the measurements - and noting the difference in technique - helped to keep her calm and distracted while the Romulan took a lap around her torso. Her head twisted a bit as she tracked Vanya's progress and gave a little nod. So far, so good.

Such thoughts, almost comically, seemed to proceed a hiccup. Having just lowered her arms again, Natalie looked up, confused at Vanya's tone. She had to think through what the girl was getting at, and then looked down at her bra. From there, she looked over to the uniform she'd been given originally. The bra was of a different variety. Standard garb was a kind of supportive tank top, or more sporty than push up.

"Oh...um....well, we have the ones we're supposed to wear.....and if we have to recreate those...cause of not fitting...oh....." she was putting it all together, slowly. It would change things. The attire under the uniform impacting the way the uniform sat. "I don't not wear bra's....i mean....support?" She pointed down at her bust, tapping the right breast.

"I don't want back pains, you know? Its a thing..." But even as she said it, she realized that there was always the chance that htere might be some reason, at some point, for her to not have her bra on. She couldn't imagine what that was. She never went out without a bra. When she went to bed, sure, a tshirt was fine. But up and about all day?

"Oh....damn. This is going to take a while. I can't say I won't always just wear the regulation stuff...or that yano...there wont be a time when I'm too rushed maybe? to....to dress proper like." To wear a bra.

Unbeknownst to Vanya, this day and these moments of measuring Natalie and being measured would remain significant memories for her over the years, ones that would always remain near the top of her archives. While Vanya remembered everything she was exposed too, much like Commander Data, her own memory would archive things in order of relevance and importance and while logically there was not, at least in the moment anything truly special about anything they were doing here, at least not to Vanya, over time however this day would be reclassified in her memory banks to something of much greater significance, although it too would take the Android a long to understand why.

Vanya would have to admit that a laughing, more relaxed Natalie was much better than nervous Natalie and she hoped that over time to see more of that version of Natalie. She wasn't entirely sure if the two would become friends, although the data she had collected so far would seem to suggest that they would be, she certainly hoped they would at least.

"I will admit I find it hard to believe that you would, you are so nice and sweet. Kind and caring, at least from what I have seen so far that it is hard to imagine you being intentionally scary to anyone." Vanya told her.

While Vanya's brief contact with Natalie had been just that, she had felt the shiver that had run along Natalie's body as she had measured her, although she did not comment on it and attributed it to Natalie's nervousness given her lack of experience in this area. However Vanya did note that Natalie was relaxing little more as they continued, which was a positive sign.

Having questioned her on her underwear choices, the Romulan could tell that at first Natalie didn't quite understand what  she had meant, although as Natalie spoke to her out loud she started to piece it all together, watching as she pointed to her bust and tapping on her right breast. Vanya's eyes unable to not follow her hand down, her green eyes watching the orb of flesh jiggle slightly at her tap.

"I understand completely, as someone who is quite...busty herself." Vanya replied, even though she would not actually suffer such effects herself, she was quite fortunate in that regard that her creator hadn't designed her to 100% reflect a biological female.

Vanya listened to Natalie as she spoke and gave her a supporting smile "I know that things like this are uncomfortable for you Natalie, I promise that I will measure you as quickly and as accurately as possible so that you do not have to endure it for too long. she told her honestly, the care in her voice plan to hear and Vanya meant it. "We can start with whatever you are most or least comfortable with and I'm sure it will be over before you know it."

For her part, Natalie dearly hoped she would learn to adjust to having a roommate. She'd never had to share a room, save when she was very, very young, and her older brother was still in the small nursery. But shortly after her first birthday the elder Stark sibling had moved out into his own room, and the nursery remained Natalie's until she was put into a larger space of her own as well. Other than that first early year of which she naturally remembered hardly a thing at all, she'd never been in an enclosed space with someone else for long periods of time.

Having never been forced to get along with someone in close proximity, she was thus rather nervous about the whole affair. No basis to go upon. No idea how she would perform. Would she relax over time? Just as Vanya liked the relaxed Natalie, so too did Natalie herself. But only time would tell if the skittish Martian could over come that nervousness around Vanya and learn to simply be herself.

The real question, of course, was would Natalie ever adjust to being complimented. There was no doubt that Vanya was sincere with her words, never minding that she'd only just met Natalie. If deception were in play, Natalie once again thought herself unable to detect it. That she was uncomfortable with having nice things said about her was probably not as uncommon as she thought it to be. Plenty of people didn't understand how to take a compliment.

And plenty of people were uncomfortable being naked around strangers. Natalie was detrimentally shy. Having to do a parade of underclothes wasn't going to be fun at all. Reaching back, she swept her hair behind her ears and down through her hair, squeezing her own shoulders. "Thanks. Its all stuff that I need to get over."

Her smile was a little forced as she bobbed up and down on her toes. "I um....this one first, obviously," she said, tapping her chest once more, oblivious to how the previous gesture had caught and held Vanya's attention. She was shifting her weight from one foot to the next, nerves causing an uneasy anxiety to manifest physically. "And at least once with the regulation attire....and...." her voice dropped here, "probably one...topless...."

Natalie swallowed, bit her lip again, and then tried to straighten up where she stood. "Lets just, start, yeah?" Though she tried to sound calm about it, the tops of her shoulders now had a hint of pink to them as her blush spread over the pale, pale skin already on display.

Natalie wasn't the only one having to adjust to living with someone else. When Vanya was first activated and gone through her training she had her mother's memories of life and living with people but no practical experience herself and even though her time at the Daystrom Institute had allowed her to socialise with Humans, she had had her own room. Now would be the first time that she would have to live with someone else. What Vanya did know however was that she would do her best to be a good room-mate and had a good..."feeling" that Natalie would try to do the same for her, based on her personality.

Unlike Natalie however, Vanya did not have any problems with being complimented, after all she was designed for infiltration and to flirt with other people in order to achieve that goal, not to mention being designed and built to be both physically, emotionally and sexually attractive, none of which would matter if she couldn't respond properly when complimented as such. Oh she could fake shyness or embarrassment, after all some people found those attractive although she would not go through the psychological reasons why at the moment.

"I'm sure that you will eventually." Vanya told her new friend with certainty. After all the only thing that Natalie truly required was experience in being complimented which at the Academy was something she would surely get plenty of from the numerous male students over time, as well as some from Vanya herself as their relationship developed, not that she would overdo it or compliment her in such a way to hint at a romantic or sexual interest but simply as one woman to another.

The Romulan watched as Natalie smiled at her, albeit a seemingly forced one as she nervously bobbed on her toes and said to start with the most obvious and logical choice to measure first, the one she was wearing and tapped her chest once more, causing her breasts to jiggle again. Continuing to shift her weight from one foot to the other, Vanya could detect the anxiety rising in the Operations Cadet yet alone see it affecting her physically as she listed off both a topless measurement and one with the regulation Starfleet undergarments.

"Sounds like a plan, we will do your current bra first and then the topless one next if you prefer to get it over with, especially considering you will have to remove that bra anyway." the Science Cadet replied.

At Natalie's statement that they should start, Vanya took a few steps closer to her and handed her the end of the tape again. "Please hold this against the tip of your nipple but try not to press in too much, we don't want to squash you any and make your clothing too tight. I will circle around you to get the measurement and then we're done. We'll do the exact same thing for the other forms of dress before moving on." Vanya instructed and explained, hoping that by telling Natalie exactly what she was going to do and how they would proceed would help calm the girl's nerves, or at the very least help gain a little trust with the woman.

Knowing that Natalie would most likely follow instructions, Vanya did exactly what she said she would do and circled around the other woman, allowing the tape to wrap around the pale skinned woman's body, the tape pressing against her skin and the rear strap of her bra and around over the curve of her other breast when Vanya finally made it back to her starting point in front of Natalie. Taking the tape from Natalie and joining it with the other end, Vanya noted the number down and smiled as she let go of one end, allowing it to fall to the floor and pulled it, wrapping it back up.

Taking a few steps back out of Natalie's personal space, Vanya walked over to the PADD and turned her back to Natalie as she tapped the measurements in, giving her the opportunity to remove her bra without an audience. Although there was no reason to do so, since Vanya would end up seeing the other woman's breasts shortly anyway, it was the gesture that Vanya felt was more important, especially considering this would most likely be the first time Natalie would ever have removed her bra and exposed herself to somebody. Vanya hoped that her new room-mate and hopefully future friend would see that too, although time would tell.

Oblivious as ever, Natalie did not realize all her shifting about was causing Vanya to sneak peeks at her chest. That she moved and her breasts 'jiggled' was of no conscious thought at the moment. Likely as not this was a good thing. Given her shy tendencies, it was not inconceivable that she might pass out from embarrassment, knowing that she was drawing attention to the very area she had no desire to expose.

Never mind that they would be exposed.

"That...is a rather logical solution to the problem, Vanya," Natalie finally conceded. Her roommate was right. It was best to do the measurement of the bared breasts between changing the bras. Damned logic. And  damn me for deciding I wanted better fitting clothes. She did keep that in mind, however. Vanya looked quite fetching in the uniform, and her friend was doing her best to ease Natalie's discomfort.

If she can look that good, maybe I can look passing enough, she decided. The old self doubt was there all the same, lurking in the background. Something that would take more than a well tailored outfit, and a few well intentioned compliments to dislodge. Certainly not in one day.

 With a slightly resigned sigh, Natalie straightened up and did as she was bidden, placing her hand over one breast, holding the tape in place and trying to pretend like nothing at all was amiss or upsetting. A rather hopeless attempt, but an attempt none the less. Stock still she stood, not even wiggling her toes, though it was taxing.

Vanya looped around and took the tape back, noting the point where one edge passed over the other. That was the number to be logged. She turned her back and Nat was no fool. "Right then...just a moment."

Twisting slightly, Natalie swung her arms around her back and wiggled her fingers into place. The hooks on her bra came off easily enough, having plenty of practice over the years, and then the straps slid down. Frowning a bit, she looked around the room and then reached over to drape the bra over the back of a chair. She bit at her lip and shivered slightly. It was illogical that simply removing the garment could give her a chill - after all the room wasn't exactly cold, and she hardly wearing anything else.

Yet shiver she did, and she gnawed away at her lip, covering her breasts with her arms. That was foolish though. "I um...suppose I can't exactly keep my arms over them. Defeats the purpose?" Her voice was small, and she frowned at that, feeling that she could - she should - do better. Huffing slightly she pulled her arms down and wrapped them tightly around her midsection instead.

Of course, that just exacerbated the issue by pushing her bust up, and making it a little more prominent.

Vanya nodded in agreement at the logic of her statement and gave her room-mate a smile. It was clear to the woman that her new friend was entirely nervous about having to do that part but she was willing to do it and Vanya was certainly going to try and make it as comfortable and easy an experience as she could.

While her sigh was one of reluctance, Natalie was as least going to go through with it, which Vanya admired. While Natalie was clearly unnerved with the experience and was in a lot of ways reluctantly doing it, she was indeed still doing it. It spoke to the young woman's resolve and determination, even if Natalie herself didn't either see it in herself or simply didn't think about it. Vanya however did see it and knew that that kind of determination and resolve would allow Natalie to go far in Starfleet, hopefully Vanya would remain friends with her long enough to see that happen.

As the Romulan took Natalie's new measurements, she noted how still she stood, very much like how Vanya had done. There were no wiggling of her toes or shuffling from foot to foot. In the moment if Vanya hadn't known the girl was Human, she might have thought that she was a fellow android like herself.

Standing with her back to Natalie, Vanya nodded, hearing shuffling as Natalie moved and did whatever she had to do as she no doubt removed her bra, eventually hearing a slight tapping as it sounded like the bra being placed on something.

Hearing Natalie state that she couldn't keep her arms over her them, Vanya turned around in time to see Natalie standing with her arms covering her breasts while gnawing on her lip. "Yes it does, unless of course you want a very baggy top, in which case that would work perfectly." she chuckled, giving the girl a big smile, hoping it would help the poor girl relax a little.

Vanya also noted how small Natalie's voice was before frowning at herself and huffed and to Vanya looked like physically had to drag her arms mentally down, wrapping them around midsection quite tightly. Tight enough to push her breasts up and out a little more.

"Uh Natalie... Vanya began, her voice soft and caring as she spoke, the lithe flow and tone of her accent coating the words. "I know this is very uncomfortable for you but that's actually pushing your breasts up and out a little more, your hands by your sides will be the best place to get the best measurements." she told the girl, doing her best to help her new friend get through this with as little trauma as possible.

You know, you're being ridiculous, Nat, she told herself. Trying to be objective about it all. She was an adult. A young one, yes, newly minted even. At least by most standards. Still, she reasoned that she should be able to just get through this without all the hemming and hawing that she seemed to be doing. This was going to take something like 10 more minutes at most, to get done. Standing, having her roommate walk around her, taking measurements, writing it down, and then she'd have a bra on again and they could get one with measuring the rest of her body. Getting like this is just stupid, and you're not stupid.

While that might be true, thinking it didn't seem to have quite the effect that Natalie wanted on her own physical reactions. She still wanted to fidget and squirm about under Vanya's gaze. The Romulan may have been reading resolve into Nat's actions, and seeing where it might take her down the line, but Natalie didn't view it the same way and was trying not to be too obviously uncomfortable.

After all, Vanya was making such a valiant effort to put her at ease.

It's rude to be this up tight Nat. They're just your tits. Just...your...well. All they are, are your breasts. Most women have them. Vanya has a pair of her own. She doesn't care about yours, save to help you get nicer fitting clothing. If you had your tricorder well then this would have been much easier, but noooo, you thought you'd be issued one. Have to get Daddy to send it over from Mars. Can't believe you thought that was a good idea...

She let herself stop at that point, because Vanya was speaking and that drew her away from her less than affirming thoughts. Her eyes darted down, to her bust, and the way she had inadvertently shoved them up when crossing her arms underneath her breasts.

"Oh...damn," she mumbled. Her fingers twitched against her skin, which felt slightly cool to her touch by this point. Then with a bit of effort, trying desperately not to look like she was pouting, she let her arms drop to the sides as instructed. Thus her breast settled into a more natural position, heavy and full with a pleasant swell, though Natalie surely would not see them as such.

Between the shifting in temperature from having a bra to not, and the nervousness that she was attempting to repress, her nipples had got a bit stiff. Not a thing she liked to think about either. No, there wasn't much about this that she did like thinking about, so she just looked up at Vanya and gave a small shrug. "Fair point, Vanya."

Vanya, as always remained silent, her gaze having long since returned to Natalie's face and simply observed the girl as she went through what Vanya was quickly learning was most likely some form on internal monologue, although what conversation the Operations cadet was having with herself Vanya certainly din't know, although she could probably hazard a guess.

At Vanya's observation, she watched Nat glance down at her chest and mumbled as her fingers twitched against her skin. To Vanya it almost looked like the poor girl had to force her arms to her sides while trying to suppress the pout that was forming on her hips from actually showing up. Perhaps the Android's assumptions about Natalie slowly getting used to her situation had been a little premature.

Vanya did feel for the girl, to clearly not feel comfortable in with her body was a sad thing to see, especially since Vanya had no such issues with her design. In a lot of ways that was where Humans and Android's had something in common, Vanya had no say in her design or in how her body looked when she was created. Some Romulan in a lab had made that decision. How big her breasts were, how round and firm her buttocks were. The size and shape of her hips, her cheeks, her face, and it was the same for Humans the only difference being that Human bodies were formed as the result of genetics and biology and not artificially. Yet for Vanya she felt perfectly fine and content in her body as well as being naked, but many Humans and other species were uncomfortable in their own skin, it was something that logically Vanya simply couldn't understand and most likely never would. Perhaps one day she would ask Natalie about it and see if the girl could explain it to her, today however was not that day.

The Romulan had also noticed that Natalie's nipples were starting to gradually get stiff, although that was clearly a physical reaction to the change in temperature in the room than it was sexual arousal and not something that warranted comment in relation to her measurements.

With a nod and a soft smile, Vanya again handed one end of the tape to Natalie and started circling the woman again, repeating her previous actions again until she was standing before Natalie again, the tape lightly pressing against the other woman's nipple as it crossed it, Vanya slid her hand briefly over Natalie's to take the tape, making sure to press the numbered end against the other to get a measurement.

Mentally noting down the number she removed the tape and took a few steps back. "There we go." Vanya said before picking up the PADD and typing out the numbers again.

"You have very nice breasts Natalie." The Android said, looking back from from the PADD to her room-mate. "They are firm and perfectly round in size, shape and proportion to your body . Unlike mine, which I think are just a slightly bit too big for my own frame. You should be proud of them." she told her new friend. While it would more than likely embarrass the girl, Vanya thought that it was an accurate observation that needed to be said.

Dual frustrations warred with each other inside the human cadet. The feeling of being foolish, of knowing that she was being foolish and that there was no reason to be embarrassed or on edge about something as basic as nudity ate away at Natalie. This fed into her discomfort, that wouldn't go away no matter how much she willed it. She had never been this exposed to anyone. No one had seen her breasts, bare like this.

It wasn't humiliation. That wasn't the word. There was no judgement, no scorn, or anything like that. Discomfort, but she couldn't say why, other than that she'd always been shy. Even 24th century children teased each other and Nat had been what they still called an early bloomer. She might live in a century where no one thought twice of a man balding as an unattractive trait, but children were children and even the best intentioned parenting only did so much.

And if I was a medical track student with a focus on psychology I could analyze myself and get over this. But I'm not. So suck it up. Putting action to mental pep talk, she did take a bit of a deeper breath. That just made things more prominent as Vanya began to circle her.True, it was Natalie's hand that held the tape in place. But when the Romulan completed her cricut, with the tape pressing across both nipples in a forgein fashion to the Ops candidate, Natalie was the one left hyper aware and flushed.

Such was her state that she let out the smallest of gasps as Vanya's hand grazed her own to take the tape, marked at the numbers they'd discovered. There probably wasn't all that much difference between the numbers, Natalie thought, a millimeter here or there. She was trying to distract herself from the tingle on the back of her hand from where the warmth of the other woman's touch lingered.  Once Vanya had finished, Natalie had stood, draping an arm across both orbs, cotteishly, and rather silly of her, in hindsight. Vanya had seen it all, so what was the point?

"All good?"Natalie asked just as Vanya started to speak. The Martian didn't make an immediate bee-line for the Academy provided under garment in case there was some need to remeasure. She wished she had however, so that her back might have been turned when Vanya spoke.

Kindness wasn't unknown to Natalie. Her parents had always been kind. The few friends she'd had growing up, before she pulled back into herself, had been kind. Most of her teachers were kind, even if Natalie had not realized it at the time.

But compliments about her physique, physical kindness was something unknown to Natalie. Unfamiliar, and therefore strange. She did not really know how to accept a compliment, so instead she became flustered at the matter of fact statement from her roommate. Perfect? she thought, gaping like a fish for a moment before struggling to say something. She made three or four starts before finally swallowing, the red glow down to her chest now, and stammering out, "I promise your's aren't too big."

After such a declaration she blinked a bit, bit her lip and then jerked her head to the side, having stated what seemed to be the important part out of all of that, attempting to reassure her friend  of her own gifts while studiously pretending nothing at all had been said about her. She thinks they're perfect?

"I'm uh, gonna go get that other top, yeah?" The statement came off more as a question but Natalie still spun, letting her arm drop and moving to grab the top. As she raised her hands up to put it on, Vanya would have been gifted with a serious view of side-boob. In her hurry to dress Natalie had not quite turned as far as she'd intended.

At least no one else can see us through the window, she thought, or more accurately, hoped. Pulling the top down she spun back around. It stretched down a bit, compressing her breasts slightly, the top covering her entire bust and with an elastic band that ran underneath by a few inches. There were variants that were longer, that would cover her entire torso, but this one cut across the mid rib.

She gave an experimental twist now that she was covered. Odd how much more comfortable she was standing in underwear now that she had been topless. The girl stretched from side to side, and pursed her lips for a bit. "It's more comfortable than I'd thought," she confessed as a way of explanation. "The compression isn't the most comfortable thing ever but it's no worse than some sports bras I've worn."

Vanya could tell that Natalie was still a little worked up over the whole situation and while she had tried to help her new friend relax, it didn't seem to work, although whether this was frustration with herself that Natalie felt or just embarrassment Vanya couldn't tell, either way she felt bad for the girl.

 Vanya would have simply continued with the measurements to get them over with quickly, but it was very clear to the Android that Natalie was again lost in her own thoughts and the last thing she wanted to do was continue and scare the poor girl or make her feel even more uncomfortable, so she decided to wait until the cadet emerged from her thoughts.

When Vanya started again, she heard the slight gasp come from Natalie as her hand very lightly grazed against the Martian's, although like Natalie Vanya had to keep her focus on her own task and not the slight tingling in her own hand at their brief encounter. Once she was done, the Romulan had to suppress a smile as Natalie's had went to cover her breasts, after all it wasn't like Vanya hadn't seen them already. The girl was certainly an odd person compared to other Humans Vanya had studied and interacted with.

At Natalie's first question, Vanya nodded "Yes Natalie, all is good." she answered with a small smile. Having then made her statement about her own breasts and inputting Natalie's measurements onto the PADD, Vanya turned to look at Nataile and smiled "Thank you, I am glad you think so, I'm not sure but I suppose it takes another perspective to truly judge."

The Romulan had noticed the blink and biting of the Martian's lip as the girl no doubt realised just what she had said before doing what Vanya had already predicted she would do and changed the subject.

"That's fine, we've finished the topless measurements." the Android replied, although it soon became clear that while sounding like a question, Natalie's words had actually been a statement as she spun on her heel and moved to get her last top. However, flicking her gaze over to the other woman, she caught a glimpse of what human's referred to as side-boob and had to admit to herself that even from the side, Natalie's breasts looked perfectly round, much like Vanya's own, albeit a smaller size than Vanya's.

This time Vanya did not look way from Natalie as she put on the last bra, watching as she put on the undergarment, observing the material stretch down her back, the top compressing Natalie's round bust slightly and waited as Natalie finished adjusting the bra, giving an experimental twist.

"That's good, although I suppose it would be possible to replicate one of those with a more comfortable fit, if you wish." Vanya stated as she made her way over and repeated the same process again. Handing Natalie one end of the tape and circling around her before retrieving the end and taking the measurements and noting them down on the PADD.

With Natalie's chest and upper body down, it would be time to move down to her lower body and the Android couldn't help but wonder how the Operation's cadet would handle Vanya being so close to her most intimate body part.

On that one point, Natalie had to agree with Vanya. The Romulan was not in a position to properly judge how her own bust fit her body. Of course, there was an irony to that statement. At least this time, Natalie was aware that her own conflicting opinion in relation to her body was going to make her a hypocrite if she didn't apply the same logic she had just lobbed at Vanya.

Dammit, she thought to herself as she got her new bra into place. She ran her thumbs along the holes for her arms, snapping the bra back into place. Then she lowered her arms and shifted her stance, striding back over to where she had stood before so that Vanya could get her measurements down pat.

Coming to a stop once more, Natalie raised her arms out to the side to make room for Vanya to make a circle around her. "I suppose there would be ways to tweak the settings on this too. Its not uncomfortable, mind you. It's just not exactly made out of Tholian Silk either." She frowned. "Or at least, I don't think its like that. If so, Tholian silk must be very overrated." The Martian had never actually had her hands on the prized fabric, one of the very few exports from the rather xenophobic Tholian Assembly.

She wasn't squirming about this time, but standing still, breathing normally, and was only slightly pink in the face. Part of it was the discussion they were having. Something to focus on other than her own state of undress helped, clearly. And if she were to be honest with herself, Natalie would have to admit that having been topless just beforehand clearly gave her a new point of reference as to what was, and was not bearable. Wearing an Academy issue bra as her roommate encircled her with a tape measure was much less anxiety inducing than the exact same thing, but naked.

Natalie would take a little while to internalize this revelation however. At the moment she was simply pleasantly distracted.

Folding her arms under her bust, Natalie twisted a bit, and cocked a hip to one side unconsciously. She watched her new friend punch in a few buttons and turn back to face her. There was a long pause, and then the brunette's eyes popped open again. She glanced down, looking past her bust as she leaned back a bit, and down to her panty clad hips.

"Um....I don't think I need to try five different kinds of underwear for the measurements right? I'm like...Never going commando..."
