unofficallyinsane asked:I didn't want to mine today. It's all I've done all week because one of my very few friends was working on something, she said it was a surprise. Personally I couldn't give less of a shit but it's taking up all her time and what can I do? Mine. Mine goddamned minerals for the screwy high bloods. I grabbed my pick-axe and was about to go downstairs, strife with my lusus, and head to the mines when I heard a loud ping. I checked the username and smiled then read her message.
Another highblood sat down infront of me and I sighed, holding up two different sized canvases. He pointed to the larger one and I sighed again, trying not to let him notice. He, of course, noticed. “This is your third time coming this week.” I noted, starting to mix some paint. He slightly smirked. “And it’s Monday.” I added. His smirk widened. “And you know you’re just a customer, not even close to any quadrants. Or well, maybe kismesis, but just the hate part.” I went on. “Just paint, brown blood.” He ordered. I grumbled, knowing he just loved bossing me around. Luckily, the bossiness only worked when I was working. A few hours passed and I finished the portrait. I turned it around, “This good enough?” I asked. He crossed his arms, seeing the devil tail hidden expertly. “Oops.” I sarcastically said. He snatched the canvas and threw some boondollars onto the floor. I snatched them up and walked into my hive, grinning one I saw my husktop. I jumped into my sliding chair and rolled over to my desk, “ges wat!” I typed excitedly.
I sat on my tower’s windowsill, swinging my legs. “Hi Miss Flower Cart Lady!” I called, waving down right below my tower. She looked up and waved back. I beamed. I took a look around, noticing a tower next to mine that I never noticed before. It looked the same as mine. Maybe one of my friends lived there. I have no clue where that thought came from but it’s worth checking out.
"Thank you very much." Tess typed, nodding at her outfit. Yeah sure Alex’s outfit might’ve been somewhat fashionable but hers was through the roof. She made herself a pair of knife gloves where the fingers were like knives and also a belt to hold more knives. You can never have too many knives.
"I teind to not think of it thait much." Steiner said. It would be cool though to actually know where you got your personality or looks from. "But trolls haive ain aincestor with the saime symbol who’re a lot like you if thait counts."
My eyes widened as she made all the knives and knive themed stuff, she must be very liberal with her weaponry. I was the opposite, I mean I’d do it if I had too, but I’d probably freak out inside a lot. I shivered at the thought, at least I could squash bugs easily without a second thought, I mean, they don’t even pay rent, what do you expect?
"Yeah, me too." Grayson replied. He had lived with his bro for as long as he could remember, he always wondered what it would be like to live with someone you didn’t beat the shit out of the minute you set eyes on them.
I lept out of the window, flying over to the tower. More little people waved up at me. It was so nice to see people who were shorter then me. Made me feel tall at my 5 foot 4 inch height. I landed and climbed into the window. The room looked very similar to mine. I noticed someone laying in the bed and slowly walked over. I’ve never seen that face before in real life but I knew who it was, “Ruth!”
Tess adjusted her belt then waited for imps to pile in. “Come at me, bro.” She said after the first one burst in. It jumped at her and she sliced, easily making it die. More came and she kept going, “I love this game!”
"My aincestor baisically killed eiveiry lowblood in sight. What are your adult human guardians like?" Steiner asked the human, wondering how brutal human guardians were towards different colored humans.
I stared at the screen surprised. “So….it’s not a house game,” I said to myself quietly after a moment. At least it wasn’t gory, you kill them and they die with no blood shed, although they do emit some black ooze, but that doesn’t seem too bad, hopefully it didn’t stain, that’d suck, mostly because I have carpet and my aunt would be ripping mad.
"They’re mostly really boring. They go to a place all day and work to get money so they can support themselves and you until you can get a job and move out." Grayson wrote, thinking about how boring they were. Humans really were boring, like, wow. They really need to spice up their lifestyle some.
"Hey Ruth, wake up!" I called, poking her. This was so cool! But….why wouldn’t she wake up? Was she dead? I leaned down, hearing her breathing softly. Nope, still alive. Good too; I probably would’ve flipped my shit if she was dead. I guess it just wasn’t time for her to wake up yet. I hope it was soon. I headed back to my tower and sat on the roof, watching the clouds for any answers.
Tess killed off the last one and collected her knives that she’d thrown around the room. “I’m glad it’s not some kind of girly house game.” She told Ruth, using her computer gloves to test them out. All this stuff was so awesome. She wondered why it even got slammed in Game Bro?
"Strainge." Steiner said, resting his head in his hand. Humans had money You’d think with how peaceful they seem, they’d just give stuff out for free. "How much do you have to feed them?" He asked, thinking about hw his lusus was always hungry and always got like over half of the stuff Steiner hunted.
"Yeah, I didn’t know what I was expecting but it wasn’t this." I replied. I was rather happy it wasn’t some pointless house game, I liked games where you had to complete things to win and get it over with, it made me feel like I was actually doing something instead of just goofing around on my computer. Besides, most the time the storyline was good too, like a book you can play or something.
"they feed themselves, and their kids. Me and my brother don’t do that, we just hide our food from one another and hope the other dosen’t find it." Grayson wrote. The troll world seemed so bizarre, but he could see why they’d feed them if they kept them alive when they were babies, it was probably to pay them back.
A cloud passes and I noticed it was Ruth and I here and awake. It seemed soon so I smiled, hoping it was like in five minutes. Maybe I can bother and poke her until she wakes up. Nah, she’d probably get mad at me. I rested my head back and took a deep breath, wanting to fall asleep but wanting to stay awake to greet Ruth.
"Game bro shot this down bad. I wonder why." Tess said, pausing and thinking. Maybe the four kids got some kind of special version. But it couldn’t have been a coincidence all four of them actually got it. Tess thought some more
"Whait’s ai brother?" Steiner asked. He noticed he was asking a lot of questions. This human is probably okay with it. I mean, it’s not every day that you get to share earth cultures with an alien.
"Maybe they didn’t really play the game." I suggested, it always was that way with food, if you hadn’t tried it yet and it looks weird it’s automatically disgusting. Even if it is really good you don’t know that because you haven’t tried it yet. Huh, wow, I make really weird comparisons. Or maybe they just sucked at it in general and hated on it because of their crappy blame play.
"it’s like…okay. Pretend the people who mixed their genetic material and made you did it again and made another troll. That would be your brother or sister depending on their gender, humans get to know them because they all live together." Grayson explained. Who knew families on different planets would be so weird and they’d never know each other. They could bump into one another on the street or something and not even know it.
I eventually fell asleep, making sure I was safe in my tower room instead of just sleeping and falling off the roof. I woke up in my room and got on my laptop-fez, “Hey Ruth, you should try waking up. :)” I said, probably sounding like a total weirdo who was like drunk or something.
Tess nodded at Ruth’s suggestion, “yeah, that could be it. anyway, have ya built up to my first gate yet?” She asked, curious. She really wanted to get to her land like Alex did. She hoped hers was really cool.
Steiner tried imagining someone a lot like him but not. It was a weird thing to think about, “Humains aire so weird.” He typed, announcing it to his friends too.
