To add my voice to the humans are space orcs headcanon…
Considered a “filthy habit” by humans, it *horrifies* aliens who are all like OH MY GOD the human is EATING ITSELF ALIVE OMG OMG RUUUUUUN BEFORE IT EATS US NEXT!!!!
And when the crewmembers report this no one believes it at first but after a while the ship captain and CMO fearfully approach their human crewmember and catch her in the act.
CMO: Human Theresa… are the rations you are allocated insufficient for your needs?
Theresa: Um… no? I mean yes. I mean er… I eat enough yeah. Why?
*chews cuticles absentmindedly*
CMO: *cringes in horror*
Captain: THEN WHY ARE YOU EATING YOURSELF!??!
Theresa: *blushes and takes hands out of mouth* I know, I know, it’s a filthy habit. I can’t stop though, I never even notice I’m doing it till someone points it out.
Captain: *horrified* You… you don’t NOTICE that you are self-cannibalizing. O.O
CMO: We have to put you on suicide watch. This attempt at self-destruction must be halted. Don’t worry, Human Theresa. We will help you. Thank the stars we caught this problem before you gnawed off a limb!
Theresa: Umm… O.o *absentmindedly chewing on pinky nail*
Air Less Traveled is a steampunk podcast set in a historically revisioned, mid-1800s America. In the beginning, it follows a Byron Crawford - the son of a local mayor - as he goes about his day: and he is the typical, spoiled rich kid you would expect. However, things take a turn when an all-female pirate crew - lead by Nettie Atkins - kidnaps him for a ransom. If you are at all interested in auditioning, information to do so is under the cut.
