Today I saw a woman walking her emu in her backyard by a dead kangaroo. Most Australian thing I've seen in awhile; it makes me proud!

Bio



There is a universe. No-one knows it's name, where gravity wasn't strong enough to bind matter together and no stars formed. And because no stars formed, no stars exploded. And because no stars exploded, no planets came about. And because no planets came about, there was no life.

There's another universe, no one knows it's name, where gravity was strong enough and did light the stars and planets came about and boy, they were gorgeous, planets in perpetual winter, planets in perpetual summer, planets that could rival the Garden of Eden and no bloody snakes! And on one of them, eventually, complex life evolved and one of the species developed large brains learned things like manners and dabbing, when they looked up at the stars and wonder what they were doing here. You called them octopuses, I suppose. Gosh, they were clever, for octopuses, and one of them, several million years in, almost wrote something in ink on the seafloor, a message to its friend. And the message almost read: "Hi! How are you?" And a few millennia later, space folder back on itself and, you get the idea.
Goodbye Octopi.

There's another universe, where life formed on every planet, in every solar system, and it was carbon-based, it was silicon based, it was made of crystals and water and plasma, it was made of quantum fields and light, and everything was alive, everything was doing a boogie, and it was everybody's birthday, everyday, relatively, and everyone got presents, and they had over a trillion languages, some written down, some only spoken, some conducted telepathically, and they bought a galactic civilization together, as a perfect unity, sharing stories, sharing technology, speaking a common tongue, understanding everything about how the cosmos been put together. And finally, when everything was sorted, the galaxies were arranged into perfect geometric formations, transmitting pure love, and wisdom, and birthday greetings to all species in the universe, for all time. Papercuts never happened, coke came in glass bottles, no one even remembered the word for war, everything was beautiful and nothing hurt.

And yet, for a quirk in their evolution, because resources weren't scarce enough on the planets these species developed on, not a single creature in the universe was conscious. Food was eaten and no-one enjoyed it. Movies were released, and there was no laughing, or crying. No-one chuckled at a joke. Ever.
Space collapsed back on itself, eventually, and there hadn't been a single moment of sentience in the entire history of creation.

There's another universe, where the strong force is too strong the weak force is too weak and nothing forms.
Another, where life develops too late when the Stars have all gone beyond the light boundary and there's nothing to even see.
Another with too many dimensions.
Another with not enough.
Another where time goes in the opposite direction, and species begin as gods, and wind backwards to cells, and never learn
to survive.
Another that only lasts milliseconds, and collapses in on itself, and heads straight back to oblivion.
And that's how it just might be, across all possible universes, across all possible space times. Problems with the laws of nature, not enough resources, missteps in evolution.
An atlas of dead-ends.

Then again, there is one exception.

There's another universe, a big one, where life is rare, where intelligent life is very rare indeed, the stars are very distant from each other, the laws of nature are very complex, it's extremely lonely for any species developing, and most never even develop at all, but somewhere, we believe, is a planet where the oceans are vast, and the climate is varied. Where the smartest species on the planet may have developed just the right mix of ambition and kindness.
And if you were to travel there, to this unbelievably rare statistical anomaly, to this impossibly lucky planet, where evolution, biology, chemistry, nae, the laws of physics themselves have come together to create sentient intelligent life, you may be able to catch the native inhabitants singing for joy. Of what an impossibly lucky, and rare position they find themselves in.
It is a chant of gratitude, a ritual of showing appreciation for ending up in perhaps the one universe, in the one solar system, on the one planet with all the basic ingredients for intelligent, conscious life.

@ShwiggityShwah Boi you got the paper, I got the scissors, now all we need is rock and we have ourselves a hero team XD

Also good to see you again fam. Sorry for not messaging on Discord, my PC is dying and I'm trying to get a new one :3
I'm curious c: Nuking my OP bullshit is more or less a requirement, so glad that's established right off the bat.
Sounds good! But I'm gonna be in America for a couple more days, and I still got other RPs to check up on first, so you'll have to reserve my seat c:






The Red Sparrow Strikes Again!

@RumikoOhara Just because you think your issues don't matter doesn't mean they don't exist, and I'd say that's a pretty fucking real thing to make you feel upset, or add fuel to the fire at the very least. I don't think anyone could fault you for feeling upset when you're dealing with that kind of grief <3
I know what going solo for that amount of time feels like, and it's ridiculous nobody has properly approached you or Syd about possible interaction. I should've actually said something beforehand.
And while nobody was exactly forward in asking for interaction, you didn't seem willing to ask any individual person if they wanted to do some sort of interaction, either.

I'm not blaming you at all here, but we all sorely lacked the initiative to do something. I'm not upset by the fact I didn't get to explore character development, it just sucks to see a good RPer go due to something so simple :(
Again, I can't stop you if the worst has been done and you want to leave, but if you want to stick around I have a collab with your name on it ;)
@RumikoOhara This sucks because I wrote Eliott into a corner when it comes to Syd ;-; I just got Eliott out of the gym; I know it might be too late, but we can make a collab post if you'd like? ^-^ I planned on having an interaction between the two of them to help with Eliott's personal doubts about people. But I understand if the last straw was already pulled <3 Hope you find a more fitting group otherwise! c:

@Metronome Do we get to see any tentacle dick? :D
