One of those “humans are weird” things but what would imagination - like almost boundless limitless imagination - look like to aliens?
They’re baffled by the millions of fictional universes we’ve created - the fact that people can live with a whole imagined universe in their head with characters that are practically real people if they weren’t imaginary - omg, imaginary friends! What would that appear like?
Lord, but what would aliens think of the concept of ‘day dreaming’ - like suddenly their friends seem to not be there and when nudged only responds with a shrug and a smile “sorry I was miles away” - that we can seemingly interact as if we lived there in those imagined universes ourselves.
That’s not even getting into what kinds of fictional universes people have created - some truly remarkable stories and realms of fantasy or sci fi - God, what about Lovecraft, probably be even more horrifying?
i am totally on board with tary going ‘who on earth is this ethereal creature that just bamfed here, heralded by thunder and lightning, and resurrected one of our party members just like that??’ and coming to the conclusion that obviously pike is a daughter of a fucking goddess
I’m saying this because we need to–we need to show them how badly they fucked up, we need to prove to them that our voices matter–but also because honestly? I need to wake up tomorrow and not be alone in my sadness and my anger.
Don’t let them tweet cute cast pictures and don’t let them post half-assed apologies that someone else wrote to try to get you back. Don’t let them convince you–we saw them today, honest and unscripted. And what we saw disgusted us and should continue to disgust us.
But also thank you all. Today was a lot to handle, and I’m glad I had you all there to laugh and cry with ✌️❤️
