2022.01.21 10:31 ack1308 [Bubbleverse] Part 6 - Settling In

[First] [Prev] [Next]
[A/N: This chapter beta-read by Lady Columbine of Mystal.]
“You see, Mother?” I perambulated around the outside of my ‘dorm room’ building, aiming the image-capture at the structure. “I will be safe within those walls. The best of our technology and human insulation materials have been used to ensure that the internal temperature never rises above safe levels. There is even a dedicated power plant on site, just to make certain I never have to worry about fluctuations in the local power supply.”
And Progenitors, the tour I had gotten of that power plant had been very interesting indeed. Humans casually walking past areas my suit was flagging as dangerously hot even for them. If I had eyebrows, they would have been permanently raised.
On the way out, I had requested a copy of the safety regulations for installations like that. Humans might be infinitely hardier in high temperatures than us (their mere existence this close to their primary was proof of that) but they were in no way immortal or impervious to harm. And as they would be working to keep me safe, I wanted to make sure the same applied to them.
The information in the booklet I was given (after I finished admiring the texture of the ‘paper’ it was printed on) was both comprehensive and educational. Yes, humans could be harmed by inattention to detail or mechanical failure, but mere protective clothing and hard covers for their feet and braincases served to dramatically reduce the possibility of serious injury. Also, it is hard for them to suffer injury from radiated heat. Water, to us a rock, is to them a means of automatically cooling themselves down when in danger of overheating (ironically, liquid dihydrogen monoxide is a horrifically caustic agent to us, as well as being dangerous just from its temperature). Just another reminder of the extreme environment I had volunteered to experience for a local solar orbit.
I would still be wary of doing anything that exposed humans to potential injury, but it was comforting to know how resistant they were to being harmed. Humans were nice. At least, I liked the ones I had interacted with, and I was willing to give the remainder of the population the benefit of the doubt until I met them personally.
“But are you certain?” On the screen, Mother twined her tentacles together unhappily. She only twisted her upper right with her lower left like that when she was particularly agitated. “It looks very small. Will you be comfortable in there?”
I could hear what she was actually saying, although she was not speaking the words. Would I be happy on Earth, away from her and my siblings?
“It is suitable to my needs, Mother,” I assured her. “I will only be spending my rest periods in there, and any time my suit requires recharging and maintenance. There is a screen for interacting with people outside. I have met a few of my fellow students already. They seem to be accepting of my presence, although that may simply be curiosity.”
The two girls and the boy (I was reasonably sure I was correctly identifying the body-shape-related gender markers, correlating with clothing and hair length) had approached me while I was wandering around the campus, making sure I knew the layout. I had Sergeant Harris of my security detail with me, armed with a ‘pistol’ on his belt, but he allowed them to approach after I said I wanted to speak with them.
“Hello,” I said. “I am Thwicca, but I suppose you know that already.” I found it amusing to be introducing myself when I was literally one of the only two members of my species on the planet. If anyone knew anything about us, they knew my name, and my father’s as well.
“Hello, Thwicca.” The girl who spoke was tall (as far as I understood the relative heights of adolescent humans) and had straight black hair. She looked at me dubiously, if I were understanding the expression correctly. “You speak English very well.”
While she could see my face, I did not think she would recognise my expressions for what they were, so I made a gesture of happiness with both my upper tentacles. “Thank you. I have been learning it all my life. In addition, my heat-suit has an automatic translator function for any words I have difficulty with.”
“Wow.” The boy wasn’t as tall as the girl and had hair redder than the Red Spot on their gas giant. “Is it true your father and Lieutenant-Commander Hernandez were doing space walks out around Jupiter and they fought some Tannarak together, and that’s why we ended up friends with you guys?”
I had to laugh, but I put my tentacles up so I would not offend them. “I am sorry. No, that is not the case. It seems people are conflating the incident that happened on Faz’Reep with the First Contact. From what my father has told me of the actual First Contact, they did not meet physically until somewhat later, and that was with telepresence robots. It is a good story, however. I would not be surprised if someone made it into a movie.” I had watched some Earth ‘movies’. The stories were beautiful, if a little puzzling at times, and had greatly assisted me in understanding human culture.
The shorter girl, whose hair was a confusing mix of gold, blue and green, jabbed the boy in the midsection with her elbow. “Doofus,” she said, and I wanted to giggle. I had encountered this word before, but this was the first time I had heard it used in the wild, as it were. “I told you that wasn’t what happened.” She turned to me and knelt down so that we were roughly at the same height. “Sorry about Francis. He believes literally everything he reads online. So, I’m Eva, and the beanpole is Jess. Is Thwicca what you like to be called, or do you have another preferred name?”
“It is good to meet you, Eva.” I filed away the word ‘beanpole’ for later reference, assuming by process of elimination that she was referring to the tall dark-haired girl. “My given name is much longer, but the phonemes involved in saying most of it are not available to the human larynx. So, just as my father is Saduk, I am Thwicca. May I ask a personal question?”
She grinned at me. (Serena had carefully explained to me the difference between a ‘smile’ and a ‘grin’). “Sure, go ahead. I might ask one or two back, if that’s okay.”
“I will be happy to answer. But … how does your hair produce those colours? I was led to believe human hair shades ranged from white through blonde and reds and browns to black.”
Jess chuckled at that, and Francis made a curious snorting noise which I took to be stifled laughter. I knew immediately I had said something amusing, so I waited to see what it was. Eva gave them both a severe look (I had seen this expression on Serena’s face occasionally, when Father was being especially flippant) and rolled her eyes as she turned back to me. My eyes are not designed to do that but again, I recognised the facial gesture.
“Sorry about that,” she said. “They’re both idiots. I’m guessing nobody’s explained hair dyes to you yet?”
“They have not, no,” I confirmed. “From context, this is an artificial colour you apply to your hair?”
The subject of hair itself was weird enough. As far as I understood it, each hair follicle was akin to a separate organism attached to a human’s skin, gaining nutrients from its host and simply growing a single strand of hair. And humans have thousands of them, mainly for the purpose of staying warm.
It is no wonder my species never developed it.
Of course, only humans would, in the understanding that most people around them have a different hair colour to them, would want to change their hair more. Because that is humanity all over. They are weird and funny and illogical, and I like them for it.
“That’s right, yeah,” said Eva. “I’m guessing you guys don’t do tattoos, either?”
“No, that is something we also do not do,” I agreed. “Our bodies work on fundamentally different principles to yours. Introducing an opaque ink through the dermis can permanently affect many things about us, including the operation of our neural web.”
“Um, we’ve got a nervous system too, you know,” offered Francis. “We’re not that different to you guys.”
“Yes, you do,” I said. “But we do not possess a spinal cord, as you do. While our braincases contain the essential seat of our consciousness, much of our thinking takes place throughout the neural web. The neural activity is visible through our dermis as flickers of light. After Father lost two tentacles, he had to relearn a few minor skills.”
“Oh, okay.” Francis looked as though he wanted to ask more questions, but a glance from Eva—human eyes could be so expressive, if one watched carefully—he closed his mouth again.
“How protective is that suit you’re wearing?” asked Jess. “Is it true you’re from a place that’s really cold? I mean, super cold? Do you have to wear the suit, or is it just for comfort?”
I wondered momentarily why humans had to always ask is this true, then I remembered Francis’ reimagined meeting of Father with Serena Hernandez. It appeared humans lied to one another a lot more often than we did. “It is true, yes. My body temperature is in the region of what you would call ten degrees Kelvin.” The actual temperature, measured by our technology, was a lot more gradiated than that, but I did not wish to confuse them further. “Without the assistance of human technology, our ships cannot approach closer to Earth than Jupiter orbit without risking catastrophic malfunction. We are currently maintaining bases on your very outer planets, where the temperatures are more comfortable for us.”
Jess blinked, and Francis’ mouth opened a little, but neither one spoke. Eva replied for them. “Okay, got it. So … all this around here,” she gestured at our surroundings, “is insanely hot to you?”
“Oh, yes.” It was good to meet someone (apart from Serena) who understood this. “The oxygen and nitrogen you are breathing? Those gases are rocks where I come from. The coldest place on Earth, at midnight on the coldest night of the year, would be seen as nothing less than a raging inferno on Faz’Reep. Exposed even for an instant to the temperatures you are comfortably enjoying, I would die immediately, then my softer parts would liquefy and boil into vapour. At the same time, the sodium compounds in my endoskeleton and dermis would probably explode upon contact with the water in your atmosphere.” I moved my upper tentacles in a shrugging motion, learned from Serena. “It is what it is.”
“But your suit protects you, right?” asked Jess, eyeing me as though I were about to self-immolate before her eyes. “It can handle a hot day, I mean?”
“Yes.” I gestured in assent. “It can disperse the heat from a sunny day, or much higher temperatures over a short period, but I have been warned not to overtax its systems.”
“Whoa …” breathed Francis, his eyes wider than they had been before. “So, uh … don’t take this the wrong way, but … why did you come here? If it’s so dangerous, I mean?”
I spread my tentacles wide. “To paraphrase one of your famous explorers, because it is here.” Leaning down, I plucked a leaf from a plant growing up from between the stone-like blocks we were standing on. “We do not have anything like this on Faz’Reep. Our biologists will be studying the data I collect on Earth for decades to come, perhaps centuries. Also, where else can I carry out my high-temperature studies merely by walking outside? And last but not least, humans are fun and interesting to talk to.”
“Well, I’m glad to hear that.” Eva took my lower-right tentacle and squeezed briefly. I curled it around her hand and squeezed back. “It was good to meet you, Thwicca. I look forward to seeing you in class.”
“I was also pleased to meet all three of you,” I replied, showing them a smile. “I hope I will see you later.”
As the three students moved off, Jess waved and I returned the gesture. Then I turned to Sergeant Harris. “Thank you for letting them speak with me,” I said. “That was a pleasant conversation.”
He chuckled. “That’s alright, Miss Thwicca. I was a bit worried you might be overwhelmed by new people, but you handled that well. I think you might’ve blown their minds a little, though.”
The phrase he used was one I’d heard before, and I gestured in assent. “Perhaps, but they got over it reasonably well. I am led to wonder exactly how much they are being taught about our physiology and the history of our First Contact, from the questions they were asking.”
“Yes.” He nodded. “That one about fighting Tannarak in Jupiter’s rings was a new one on me, too. But I think you made some new friends. That’s good. Your dad will be pleased.”
We moved on, as I went back to making note of where each building was in relation to the others.
Just be sure to keep in contact,” Mother urged me. “Your father says he will be watching over you, but he cannot be there all of the time. Are you sure your human security will protect you?”
“Mother!” I tried not to sound shocked, though I was pleased we weren’t speaking English at the time. Mother was trying to learn it, but she was not as fluent as I was. “They are dedicated to ensuring my safety. I trust them with my life.”
As I spoke, I glanced casually toward Sergeant Harris, who was guarding me again, though standing off at a little distance so as to not to crowd me during my call. If he’d heard her words, either he didn’t understand the language or he was pretending not to.
“Just be careful, please.” She leaned in toward the image-capture on her end, so her face grew large. “You know I worry.”
“I will.” I raised a tentacle toward where she would see it. She did the same on her end, and we each touched the screen at the same time. I ended the call and slid the tablet into the bag slung over my upper-right tentacle. “Sergeant Harris, may I ask a personal question?”
“Go right ahead, Miss Thwicca.” Side by side, we strolled toward the road that ran through campus. There was a fountain in a park nearby, and I liked to watch the water droplets sparkle in the air. It looked cool and inviting, though I knew exactly how much of an illusion that was.
“Does your mother worry about you as much as mine does about me?” I glanced sidelong at him, hoping I hadn’t offended him.
He produced the same truncated snort of laughter that Francis had done. “Miss Thwicca, all mothers worry. I’m forty-five years old, and I’ve been doing this sort of thing for half my life. I’m qualified in pistols, assault rifles, and several forms of hand-to-hand combat. There is no question that I know how to take care of myself. But mine still calls me up to make sure I’m eating properly, and getting enough sleep.”
It was oddly satisfying to find out that with all the contrasts we had with humans, there were also many similarities. I looked up at him. “What do you, personally, think of this duty you have now? Of guarding me against harm?”
He paused before he spoke, which I hoped meant he was thinking about his words rather than merely trying to say what he thought I wanted to hear.
“I’d like to say it’s a duty I fully intend to carry out, but there’s more to it than that,” he said at last. “Back when Jovial Diver met up with Distant Knowledge at Jupiter, when your people found out how different we were, your father’s crew could’ve cut us off cold, so to speak. But they didn’t. That one act of trust led to everything that followed. It’s my honour and my duty to ensure that your father’s trust in us to keep you safe is fully justified.”
He paused, looking down at me, an expression on his face I couldn’t quite read.
Then, before I could answer, he continued in a somewhat lighter tone. “Also, you’re a sharp kid and I think you’ll go far.”
“Thank you,” I said, and meant it. I did not have to explain what I was thanking him for.
“You’re welcome.”
The sun was beginning to set over distant hills, and I stopped to watch it. I especially liked the way the reddening light refracted through the fountain’s spray. “Pretty,” I said, gesturing.
“Yeah.” He glanced down at me. “Don’t get sunsets back home?”
I chuckled. “Nothing this extravagant.”
I fell silent, then, watching as the hellish primary drifted below the horizon. I knew I would be going home at the end of the year; that was the arrangement.
But I also knew I would be back. As wild and crazy and insanely dangerous Earth was, I wanted to sample everything it had to offer.
And one day, just maybe, one day I would bring my own family here to visit.

2022.01.21 10:31 peanutbutter-meme Is there any way to transfer my save game from the PS4 to the PS5 version?

Hey y'all. I started playing DRG on my PS4 together with a friend and we're in love with this game. Yesterday I was finally able to get my hands on a PS5 and I wanted to play the PS5 version of DRG, but it only plays the PS4 version on my PS5. If I start the PS5 version, I'd have to start all over again. I want to play the PS5 version with my PS4 Save Game. Is there a way to transfer the save game, so I can play the PS5 version? I mean it was able to transfer everything from my PS4 to the PS5, but I can only play the PS4 version with my old save game. Is there a way to fix that?
Greetings from Germany

2022.01.21 10:31 HroantzScroern 🔥Panda Multiverse🔥 | 🚨FPS P2E GAME 🚨| 💰Free NFT Giveaway💰| BSC Token

We are a devoted, doxed, and professional team working together for the first time on the same project. This is our first token launch as token owners. We have previously worked on multiple teams assisting with marketing, listings, and community leadership positions, but we are now achieving our aspirations of operating our own business. We have responsibilities in several renowned cryptocurrency groups and decided it was time to unite all of our efforts and create something extraordinary. The Panda Multiverse is first and foremost about its community and our commitment to helping one another, as well as our passion for Pandas! Aside from that, we are a reward token that pays out 1% BUSD to token holders and 4% BUSD to token holders who also own one of our BSC NFTs (with the ability to bridge the others). We are a cross-chain NFT platform that has an FPS P2E Zombie Panda game that rewards in legendary NFT pieces. We're also collaborating with other tokens to create their NFTs, giving further income and publicity back to the Panda multiverse Tokenomics 2% LP 6% MARKETING Holders of 4% NFT in BUSD 2% NFT HOLDERS' WEEKLY PAYDAY 1% DEV We have announced a new collaboration with FarmerDoge! We'll be creating their NFTs! In addition, FarmerDoge will be cultivating Panda Multi-verse in the near future, which will bring us massive volume and new holders only from this collaboration! We've also recently announced that each new investor who purchases a $50 minimum will receive a complimentary limited edition 8bit Panda NFT! Where else can you buy a tiny quantity of tokens and receive an NFT as a welcome gift? Panda Multiverse is continually rewarding its fans with gifts and games based on our own Telegram and Discord communities! Our cross-chain NFT sales and ability to bridge them help us separate from other typical initiatives. And our FPS P2E Zombie Pandas game is on a completely different level of professionalism; it is nothing short of spectacular! This is a must-play for both gamers and crypto aficionados! Our game will include branding and marketing as though it were its own metaverse that changes over time. One of our more ambitious aims (you heard it here first) is to have a Panda multi-verse NFT Temple within the TCG metaverse. More specifics coming soon. We can't provide everything at once, and of course, our NFTs are hand-created masterpieces you can only acquire within the Panda multi-verse! Our initial 250 NFTs on BSC sold very quickly, leaving many people wanting more. So, as we waited for our deal to be completed, we put an extra 250 on BSC, and they sold out even faster! We sold 550 NFTs in total in the run-up to our token launch, generating additional income for marketing and assisting with liquidity. We are actively minting on SOL and searching for extra usefulness for SOL holders to profit from without needing to bridge back to BSC for incentives. In addition to NFT purchases, the Panda Multiverse will generate other revenue streams through our P2E game, in which players may spend in-game money and other projects can pay to advertise in-game (2 already on board). In addition, we will offer a line of personalized clothes and one-of-a-kind shoes to help generate marketing income for the project. In addition, our NFT artists will collaborate with other projects on their NFTs, generating more revenue for the Panda Multiverse. We're here to have a good time, trade beautiful art, form strong bonds, support the Pandas, and help one another grow as tall as the tallest bamboo! "In an infinite multiverse, there is no such thing as fiction." PandaMultiverse Contract : 0x0f2F271F27FD90447E54212913e21a8A07a61992 PancakeSwap : LP Locked : Ownership Renounced :

Hi dad. Im 18 now...I've been 18 for a few days. Im studying theater, I really enjoy it, but I want to study dramaturgy, not be an actor. Theres a pandemic going on, and some people in my class are positive, and I probably am as well, but im ok. We're ok. Im learning Russian, and next year I'll probably learn French...i wish you could have taught me. Im a man. Mom doesn't know, or I think she doesn't, and I'm scared to tell her. I also have anxiety and an eating disorder, but im in therapy to manage it. I also have insomnia like you, but I want to avoid medication, at least for now. My leg has healed marvelously, I haven't had the need to go to the doctor because of it. Sometimes i cant walk or have difficulty walking, but its prettu rare. Im also going to extract the same skin tag you had on your back, because im scared it turns cancerous. Im smoking for a play, but its not real tobacco. I said that the only way i would do it is if it wasn't real tobacco. It feels nice, but im not going to smoke, ever. I wish you were here, but im glad you aren't. i think ive become a fuck up. i dont want you to be ashamed of scared about the future, i dont know what to do. I know you're not going to see this, but i just wanted to talk to you. its been hard. im trying everyday, but it has been hard. i just wish someone would tell me that everything is going to be ok, that im doing good, that they're proud of me. i just want to feel like someone doesn't expect the world from me, they just want me to be. i wish you hadnt died. i wish i hadn't seen you go through cancer. maybe things would have been better. im not sure, i just needed go vent. love Davide

Keeping collonist bodies or even animal ones is hard if theres one or 2 genade / dynamite users in a raid of 50 anyone in melee gets wiped out and cant be buried later, so making the health of dead collonists much higher could help with that.
