Whoa, these look so different on my laptop.
My tablet is being really fucking weird on me, so I apologize. =(
*in an Eddie Izzard voice* FIVE GOLD RINGS!!!
It’s the whole fam-damily! :D And as of tonight, you’ll be on the train on your way here! <3
I love how I’m lookin’ at the number like OHMIGAWSHFIVE ;U; and Caithnes is looking at /me/ with the same expression I’m holding for five. Yet it’s for the same reason: “It’s getting closer!!”
Just substitute ‘it’ for ‘she’ and we’re good to go! X3
I wish I was on the train tonight! It’ll be tomorrow, but you can bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow is the first night of TRAIN ART. You won’t see it until Wednesday, but it’s all good! c: I really should pack a sketch book just in case the wi-fi is unavailable or the power is nerped.
Klide’s profession is an interesting one. He simply refers to himself as a scholar, but he actually travels from world to world, staying in them long enough to educate the public about other worlds, their existence, and the kind of effects one’s actions can have upon them. Of course, telling an entire world that has been otherwise cut off or believed there was only their world that was inhabited can have its consequences too. Klide has to judge which worlds are ready to receive such knowledge and then begin teaching based on what he learns from assimilating in to their various cultures as a foreigner.
This means he travels a lot and rarely stays in one place, and visits with him tend to be short due to his incredibly busy work schedule. He usually gets involved with efforts to better the worlds he visits as a whole and helps communities that are struggling better understand the resources they have available to them and what they can do with them.
Such a job leaves no time for love or family, as he has reluctantly become very aware of after having to split from the love of his life and siblings several years ago.
He has rarely come across worlds like Earth that have solely one sentient race, and so he has to come up with and constantly create new methods of teaching people.
From his work he has also come to the conclusion that one-sentient race worlds tend to be a lot harder to work with.
