Cate: Okay Hats, we all know you've got some major stress going on at the moment, so the rest of us got together and decided to lift one of those stressors off your back!
Hats: Oh yeah?
Cate: Yeah!! Allow me to present your all new, completely rebranded porn studio! Welcome to Spectratelier!
Cate: Atelier! Like an artist's studio, but much classier!
Hats: Or much more pretentious!
Cate: Potato, tomato! But anyway, after our first brainstorming session with you, it was pretty clear that we needed something that would both show off our diversity and make us stand out, so we took a cue from a couple of our names, and decided the simple answer was best: colors!
Cate: Yes! Come meet the new Spectratelier crew and see for yourself!
Cate: Alizarin, you know!
Cate: But next we have our Golden Boy, Blondie!
Jake: Not much of a stretch there!
Cate: Emerald, of course!
Jade: I'm your Green Queen, baby
Cate: Introducing Phthalo!
Lake: The pigment sisters!
Vikki: It's actually my middle name!
Cate: And rounding us out, Obsidia, at your service!
Hats: Haha! Oh my! So what, we all wear bright wigs while we fuck?
Cate: Yes, but much more than that! Every scene will be color coordinated! I've been boning up on After Effects, and we can do some amazing stuff in post, from the subtle to the gaudy!
Hats: Okay, okay. I suppose I'll need a demo on that . . . but I'm liking it so far! But one big question first: what will my name be!? "Pink" is kind of taken, and mabe a little simple amidst the others anyway.
Cate: That's the best part! You'll be "Fucksia"! Spelled like the fuck word with an I-A on the end! It's got the traditionally dirty porno pun, and it's synonymous with bright blaring color! Perfect for our fearless leader!
Hats: . . . I . . . don't get it.
Cate: See, this is where it gets even better! You probably pronounce that color as "fyoosha"--
Hats: Ohhhhh. Fuchsia!
Cate: --but that's not actually how it should be pronounced! The reason it's so hard to spell is because it was named after a botanist named "Fuchs", and over time, people hyperforeignized it to the current pronunciation that doesn't really match the spelling! It should really be more like "Fooks-ya", so with just a minor tweak, your new pornonym has an extra subtext!
