Humans Are Weird

So there has been a bit of “what if humans were the weird ones?” going around tumblr at the moment and Earth Day got me thinking. Earth is a wonky place, the axis tilts, the orbit wobbles, and the ground spews molten rock for goodness sakes. What if what makes humans weird is just our capacity to survive? What if all the other life bearing planets are these mild, Mediterranean climates with no seasons, no tectonic plates, and no intense weather? 

What if several species (including humans) land on a world and the humans are all “SCORE! Earth like world! Let’s get exploring before we get out competed!” And the planet starts offing the other aliens right and left, electric storms, hypothermia, tornadoes and the humans are just … there… counting seconds between flashes, having snowball fights, and just surviving.

Electrifying Origins AU

In an attempt to find an alternative to their adrenaline addiction, Character A stumbled upon quite the surprising high in their kitchen of all places (specifically their toaster). Everyone is told that they shouldn’t use a fork to take out that darned piece of bread, but to h*ck with it - they did it anyways, and they received quite the zap that left them in bliss afterwards.

Soon enough, it became a full on obsession with them almost growing a tolerance for the electricity coursing through their veins. They worked through higher “doses” until they finally found themselves practically sitting on a power line — yes, that’s when they knew that they had a problem, but not in the way you’d expect: they could feel the electricity pulsing from all around them, could feel each and every battery, every spark in the air, every toaster, and when they reached out…

…lighting shot from their fingertips.

I find you in the first ray of sunshine
entering my room in the mornings,
in the smell after rain,
the salty scent of the sea,
in the heavy taste of red wine
and the soft paper of old books,

you are in the shifting colour
of the evening sky,
the aroma of lavender back in France,
in the light of a full moon,
the curves of the highlands
and in the citrus taste of tea,

but then again,
I see you in the night sky,
the calm before a storm,
the electricity of thunder
and in the broken mirror back at home,

you are in the taste of bitter coffee,
and in the richly coloured nights,
in the pain of finishing a story
and in the awe of city lights.

—  // you’re everywhere and I can’t wrap my head around it
