AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.

So. Sometimes magic happens with me and Cielo. This time it was about space opera Carebear pirates.



Zhores: also like, the fucking Doctor. Jesus Christ Dr. Who is such an Outrider.
Cielo: XD yes
Zhores: they also have the same problem as the Doctor. They guide people out of rough spots and protect people who are lost or in harm's way, but they also can bring a lot of trouble to people who are close
Cielo: I wonder if Cordelia would count as that
Cielo: Miles would
Zhores: XD
Zhores: I think like, five frillion space opera characters would fit that
Cielo: Pretty much!
Cielo: Well, they're easy types to write a story about
Zhores: I SWEAR CIELO there needs to be a book where the problem is that EVERYBODY in the galaxy is a free-roaming explorer type who wants to change things
Cielo: XDDD ues
Cielo: *yes
Zhores: like. space parliament meetings would never get done
Cielo: but that's okay because no one pays attention to the laws anyway
Zhores: "I'm sorry I didn't get back in time! Urk'flan needed rescuing from a cruel tyrant." "That's all right, there was a minor war in the south nebula, everyone was busy with that."
Zhores: SOB. YES
Zhores: all the buildings would be like, half finished and kind of cobbled together
Cielo: But what can a space explorer do if there's no petty bureaucracy for them to fight?
Zhores: and then someone would try to rebel against that for better living conditions
Cielo: Actually I think there was a book sort of like that
Cielo: except the society was small fuzzy bears
Cielo: well alien bears
Zhores: and someone would rebel against the rebellion because the other guy was forcing people to work against their will
Zhores: ahaha what
Cielo: WELL THEY WEREN'T EXACTLY EXPLORERS
Cielo: more like
Cielo: the ultimate LARPers
Zhores: fkflfhweAHAHA
Zhores: THAT MAKES EVERYTHING BETTER
Cielo: IT WAS AWESOME
Cielo: I can't remember the name though
Zhores: I'm imagining like. Larping space carebears
Zhores: having rebellions
Cielo: that's pretty much exactly it
Zhores: oh my god
Zhores: that's amazing
Cielo: I think at one point they decided they were pirates
Zhores: bvljkfbv
Zhores: I MUST READ THIS
Zhores: ps can I post this?
Cielo: and then another time they were Renaissance Italian murder mysteries
Cielo: Go ahead!
Cielo: I'm emailing my brother to see if he can remember the name too
Zhores: I- I feel that people need to be educated about the space pirate renaissance care bears
Cielo: ALWAYS
Cielo: besides, maybe one of them will know the series
Zhores: \o\
Cielo: oh, and one time they were playing Casey at bat
Cielo: I forgot if he struck out or not
Zhores: MAGIC EVERYWHERE IN THIS BITCH.
Cielo: IT WAS AWESOME


Yes I- YES.
