Humans are space orcs
I don’t know if this one has been done, but I love the humans are space orcs tags. Humans are super influenced by things around us. Colors, smells, sounds and designs can make us go from happy and productive to agitated and morale sucking with the wrong combination of any of these.
Xa’thyn: Human Kara why will you not go to the infirmary if you are sick?
Kara wipes her nose on the edge of her uniform: It’s just a cold, and the infirmary makes it worse!
Xa’thyn: Receiving medicine will worsen your sickness!?!
Kara walking away: Well no, but like, the lights give me a headache and whatever you guys use to serialize the Infirmary makes my eyes water and I want to rip my nose off
Xa’thyn quickly catalogs this new info with the captain and applies for a human habitat specialist to come in and fix this oversight.
Xa’thyn nervously clicking behind the comm desk: Human Ben… You have not yet taken your usual *Bathroom break*
Ben leaning back in his new office chair: Haha, ‘Thyn my man, I was taking double the bathroom breaks because the old chair was slowly killing me
Xa’thyn waving his 6 arms in the air and clicking wildly rushes to his favorite human: Human Ben! How could you have not told me!?!?!
Ben: No! Chill dude, it was just not built for prolonged human sitting. So, sitting there hurt my back and sh*t, so I had to get up and walk around. This new one is perfect! Plus I got my music device approved so I can just plug in and just FOCUS. You know?
Xa’thyn was unaware humans could plug into anything, still he rolled his whole body in the Genri version of a nod.
Kara, Ben and Xa’thyn discussing which deck cafeteria to eat at
Kara: Anywhere except deck 5! The faces on the wall kinda kill my appetite!
Xa’thyn: Are you feeling quite well Human Kara?
Kara exchanging glances with Ben: uh… yeah?
Xa’thyn: Do you need to go to the newly renovated infirmary? You are seeing things! There are no faces on the wall on deck 5…
Ben: No, Dude, it’s a human thing, we tend to project images that we know onto other things. We know that there aren’t really faces on the walls, but the weird texture on there kinda looks like faces if you focus.
Ben turns to Kara: I say we go with deck 8. I know it’s mostly Quasiri food, but it smells just like my abuelita’s kitchen, makes me the nice kinda home sick.
Xa’thyn falls slightly behind his human friends. One talon scratched his left pincher in confusion. Maybe he will never understand humans!
