Another Humans are Weird post
So, I’ve seen all of the stuff about aliens being confused by smiling and laughing, and that’s cool, but… what about when it’s just… not used to denote happiness? Just bear with me here.
Just when Xealten thought xe had humans figured out…
Laughter was for happiness, as was smiling, but the deep, low chuckle coming from Human-Selena’s mouth was sending every survival instinct in xir body on high alert. The invaders looked thrown off, too. It was predatory, almost, primal and scary beyond all reason. Which is why none of them reacted fast enough to avoid the heavy pipe in Human-Selena’s hands.
She looked down at their unconscious forms, the pipe swinging loosely from her fist. “Guess they didn’t read the human guide, huh?” She turned back towards Xealten, muttering something that sounded like “Weakest ones, my foot,” though judging from the illogic of the statement, xe supposed xe could have misheard.
Human-Selena smiled at Xealten, a hint of that predatory smile still lingering, but faint enough it probably wasn’t directed at xim.
“Let’s go find where the rest of these bastards got to, shall we?”
Xealten followed, making a mental note to update the guide when this was all over.
