This One is a Bit Oddish



Just the insane thoughts of a game tester with insomnia. What else were you expecting?

And then in the future, everything changes. He’s been through it all, of course-watched humanity rediscover the heavens above them, watched them begin to wonder what’s out there. He cheered with the rest of the world when they landed on the moon, cheered as if he’d found Isla de la Muerta all over again, because there was something new. New treasure, a new horizon. But then they stop going, stop exploring, and he goes back to riding tankers across the rising seas. So he’s surprised when one day he wakes up from a night with his bottle of rum (his truest companion), and hears that there’s colonies on Mars now, and they need ships to supply them. He spends the next decade crafting new identities, learning all he can to qualify for the job, and after several tries (and even more faked deaths-this immortality thing isn’t all it’s cracked up to be in the age of the inerasable digital self) he gets it. The ships go nearly constantly now, the needs of the terraforming project creating an unbroken line of vessels from Mars to Earth and back again. “Show me that horizon,” he whispers to himself, his personal prayer of thanksgiving, each time they leave orbit, because the worlds, the stars are in motion and it’s never the same, with nearly three years for a round trip the ports are always different, even if they keep the old names. And finally one trip something goes wrong with the reactor, they’re too low on power and have to deploy the backups, and Jack (Lucky Jack, they call him, for he survives too many things he shouldn’t but science has yet to accept that maybe some things weren’t old wives’ tales after all) goes out for the spacewalk to bring up the solar panels. And as they rise, geometric patterns black against the sun’s glare, he’s struck by a powerful sense of déjà vu, because it’s all here-wind and sails, a ship beneath his feet and stars above his head, horizon in all directions. He wonders, for a moment, if the reason he’s still here is because the universe wanted a witness, to mourn the end of one age of exploration, and rejoice in the birth of the next.

Thank you for writing this. It made me cry, but oh I am so relieved to see the yearning for the stars.

That shouldn’t have given me as many feels as it did…

That boy, how old is he, sixteen? And tomorrow he burns to death.

And that’s my fault?

Right now, yes.

An immortal being has the ability to share their power with one soul and make them immortal too, so they can have a companion for all the years if they choose. Only one though. This being has had countless lovers and friends, and they have seen them all fade away as time passes. The being tells one of their lovers, whom they’ve been with for ten years or so, about their ability, and the lover begs to have the energy shared with them so they can be together for eternity.

"I can’t," the immortal says.

"Why not?" the lover asks.

"I’m already sharing my power."

"With who?"

The immortal looks down. “My cat.”

If someone who had no knowledge of TFP saw this gif without context it would look like a robot buying a pet human from another robot. Knock Out is the charismatic salesbot and Bulkhead is just so excited for his new pet that he just hugs the container. The key would probably just be a bundle of metal robot money.
"Here you go, sir, be sure to feed it 3 times a day and to let it out for a potty break every now and again. She’s a Japanese breed so she can get a little feisty."

(~Sex Isn’t Always Good by queenieofaces)

This is a critical part of sex positivity that tends to be overlooked. Let’s celebrate empowering amazing sex and the choice to not have sex, or only have certain kinds of sex.

Ugh, say what you want about men, but at least we don’t spend half of our time complaining about the opposite sex. There is a trending attitude among the women of Tumblr, and that is ‘impossible to please’.
