this is not a spaceship

The Hiver Warrior Tk'tlz expected to continue being on a spaceship for the next nine days, then serve on the personal guard of Princess Hllzt, a very prestigious position. It doesn't understand the gates work, it just knows that they take ships across the black sea in an instant. This is the first time it will experience gate travel, so it is waiting attentively, curiously, at the moment of transfer.


This is not a spaceship.

This is not a spaceship. This is a hilly area with a lot of soil and rocks and burn marks on the ground and occasional valiant clumps of grass. And quadrupedal creatures making vocalizations and chasing each other, over there, up the hill.

The repetitively-vocalizing quadrupeds approach.

"Houndour?" "Houndour!"

One of them breathes fire at it.

The nearest quadruped scampers away.

Another one gets closer. Fire!

The quadruped is punched away.

The others are mad now. They chase it! They are faster than it is and soon have it surrounded and on fire.

The quadrupeds are abruptly chased away by another, smaller quadruped, which sprays water all over the place. It sprays water on the hiver too. There is a biped, accompanying the water creature. It shouts something and throws a small sphere at the hiver.

And then there is silence and disconnection from the sensation of time passing.

Eventually the vague shadows of pain disappear.



And then it is out of the sphere, in a roomful of more bipeds.

They indeed do not understand! They talk, but to each other.

And then it is back in the ball.

And now it is out of the ball and surrounded by various fire-themed creatures.

Bipeds continue talking to each other.

[personal profile] alicornucopia 2015-11-04 05:12 am (UTC)(link)
Bipeds pause in the speaking and listen to it!
alicornucopia: (Default)

[personal profile] alicornucopia 2015-11-04 05:17 am (UTC)(link)
Bipeds resume talking, louder and more rapidly, including the string 'Kuztektools'.

Before it has had much chance to form guesses about what sounds like "'mon" and "bug" and "legendary" could mean, a biped wanders off, and then comes back with another biped.

They think you might be intelligent, thinks a thought in its head that is not its own.

They're there to make sure you don't try to run away again.
