songofsunset Alien So you're saying that human brains sometimes just malfunction? And see threats that aren't really there? Human Yeah basically? Alien And then the human keeps living and doing things anyways??? uman Alien Woahhhhhh Woahhhhh Humans are badass fireandwonder Aliens would probably have fundamentally different responses to trauma than humans wouldlike- their brains would be so fundamentally different at a basic chemical and structural level we'd have to relearn everything in this scenario the alien species is REALLY BAD at continuing to function with even a slightly impaired brain and deals with it with LOTS OF BABIES Oh yeah great grandpa died three years back when he got really surprised and WHAT DO YOU MEANTHAT A HUMAN GOT STABBED THROUGH THE HEAD AND CONTINUED TO LIVE I DON'T BELIEVE YOU THAT'S IMPOSSIBLE I bet they are all pregnant all the time and when they randomly die the baby eats their way out of the corpse they are insectoid and look a lot like praying manti and they REALLY FREAK OUT THEIR HUMAN FRIENDS THE FIRST TIME IT HAPPENS there is a sort of generational memory that happens which is how they managed to develop tech at all being so fragile so when the creatures get depressed or homesick or manic and die it's not like their human friends have lost them forever except for how it sort of is via @songofsunset songofsunset PLEASE IMAGINE THE FIRST TIME AN ALIEN HAS ONE OF THEIR HUMAN FRIENDS DIE so hey that was a great funeral cool outfits always glad to learn more about your culture and stuff So when is she coming back? She- she's not coming back Yeah not as Megan but when is her replacement coming back? We're- not hiring anyone new for a couple weeks??? no no no you're not getting what I'm saying-I want to ask her about that book she lent me- can I keep it for another week or two or does her new version want it back? The humans stare at the alien and just slowly start to figure out what the alien is saying The alien shuffles nervously their six spindly legs making a skritching noise that echoes in the cold chapel Finally the kindest of the humans takes the alien aside and- hey so Us humans don't come back when we die Not like you do what? No but you clearly talk about reincarnation and- Those are just stories Six When humans die we're gone We don't come back The alien laughs 'No see cuz that would mean that-that would mean That a sob 1 have to go The alien spends a week in their spaceship the only place they can send communication to their Mother When they come back their carapace is a glistening new shade of red and they've ended up as a different gender When the lab adviser asks them how they are feeling about Megan- Megan? Oh yes my previous version was very fond of Megan' The alien cocks their head like a particularly thoughtful bird 'I suppose that I regret her loss She was a valuable member of the team The lab adviser lets this be- they are aliens after all But later when lab hours are done the adviser notices Six double and triple-checking all the lab equipment especially- well The accident that took Megan will never happen again The book is never returned audiencecat Now imagine the flip side Sevan finds out his human friend is due to have a baby in six months Six months! He asks and finds that no there's no way to delay a human birth In six months a new version of his friend will emerge Will they still like space operas? What about visiting that smoothie place in quadrant 6? Will they even still want to be friends? His friend asks him to be visit the baby after it's born Of course of course he will It's the least he can do There's always that vulnerable phase after birth when you haven't got the hang of the new motor controls and everyone needs a helping palp for the first few months The night he hears that the new baby has been born he wails quietly and recites the qualities of his friend that he will miss the most Three days later he gathers his resolve and knocks on the hatch of his friend's place Strangely the access panel hasn't been lowered - rude He'll make sure that's one of the first things changed His friends partner opens the door and lets him in and there- there is his friendlooking tired but well a miniature copy of herself held in her arms Imagine his joy when he finds out that not only will he get to spend longer with his current friend but there will be another friend to get to know! semudara noxiousb good bug stories tbh Source songofsunset Humans are weird Pregnancy Beauty Tips Meme
