She had something in her hands, a shell of some sort.

Friends at Colossus Massive By: Delaney Gillespie               “Castra!”               Lorrik found Castra walking around on one of the lower levels of the Central Forum.

Friends at Colossus Massive By: Delaney Gillespie Solaria returned to Novalight, crestfallen. She didn’t need a mouth to express her sadness. It filled her eyes, weighed down her shoulders, and slowed every step she took.               “What happened?” Nerice rushed to … Continue reading “I’ll go to the Central Forum,” Castra volunteered.

The inaccurate design was cute, according to Nerice.

Valentines day By: Delaney Gillespie “I have learned of the most interesting custom!”               Solaria lifted her head to look at her excitable companion. She stretched out one of her antennae, the golden bulb at the end flashing pale blue to indicate curiosity. She gently touched the bulb of her antenna to the top of Nerice’s vibrant purple hand.               What have you learned?                Solaria, of the Talmantri people, possessed no physical mouth. The entire species communicated telepathically through touch. When Solaria announced to … Continue reading she wanted to move to The Colossus – a massive space station
