not my real brother

More extended banter with my Ryder (Erika)

Jaal: So Liam, I’m still confused about the nonspecific erogenous zones.

Ryder: Yikes! 

Liam: *coughing* Um, maybe now’s not the time?

Jaal: Why not? I have no shame about my relationship with Ryder.

Liam: Yes, but we consider that private…like…Oh! Like how Angara never ever talk publicly about being sick like the other day.

Jaal: Liam, conversation over.

Ryder: Wait, wait, you were sick? THAT’S why you said you couldn’t come over? Are you okay? Do I need to take you back to the ship? Should I talk to Sahuna get some medicine or something to help?

Jaal: I’m fine, there is no need.

Liam: Ah, forgot to mention, sickness in humans usually breeds worry and lots of care taking.

Ryder: I can take you back to the Tempest if you need, Lexi’s been talking to some Angaran doctors -

Jaal: I. Am. Fine.

Ryder: You do look a little flushed. Liam, take the wheel. 

Liam: RYDER.

Ryder: *leans back and touches Jaal’s forehead* You feel feverish. 

Jaal: Perhaps it is because we are on a hot planet. Please, darling one, I’m fine…though your concern is…touching.

Ryder: *unconvinced* Oookay, but if you start to feel bad just let me know, you can even give me one of those shocks if it’s uncomfortable to say it aloud. I don’t want you overdoing it. 

Liam: Look, this is really touching and everything but can you please take the wheel back.

Humans are Weird: Spices

Alien: Today in my “Human Studies” book, I’m reading about human foods.

Human: Ooh, cool.

Alien: But I’m not sure this is accurate. It says here that humans purposely ingest a plant high in a pain-causing chemical, capsaicin.

Human: Oh, peppers? Yeah. Spicy.

Alien: But why would you want to eat something that causes you pain?

Human: Some people like the burn. I think it causes the same sort of reaction as drinking alcohol…?

Alien: That activity doesn’t make sense to me either. Can we discuss it after?

Human: Sure.

Alien: So, these “peppers.” Do you enjoy eating them?

Human: Me? Well, not by themselves. But I do like somewhat spicy foods. My brother, though, he likes them much hotter. He’s eaten some really spicy peppers, even ate a ghost pepper by itself.

Alien: Ghost pepper.

Human: Yeah, it’s the spiciest natural pepper. His face got pretty red, and he got the hiccups.

Alien: That… doesn’t sound like a healthy reaction.

Human: It just means that it’s a really spicy pepper. I mean, if I ate one of those, it might kill me, but he was fine.

Alien. Why would it kill you?

Human: Too spicy. You have to have a tolerance for capsaicin or it can literally kill you. And the ghost pepper is so hot that to handle it, you gotta wear gloves.

Alien: Your planet has plants that can KILL people, and which you can’t handle directly, and your brother ATE ONE, by ITSELF??

Human: Yeah.

Alien: …

Human: He says that when he gets desensitized to ghost pepper, he wants a Carolina Reaper.

Alien: I’m almost afraid to ask.

Human: …

Alien: What’s a Carolina Reaper?

Human: A pepper scientifically engineered for spiciness. It’s currently the world’s hottest pepper.

Alien: *stares at human in disbelief*

Alien: *stares at human studies book*

Alien: *stares at human again*

Alien: *whispers to self* How… how are humans real?
