Boldly Coming Reboot: The Wrath of Khrax!

Space: the final frontier. These are the adventures several courageous men and woman willing to brave the sea of stars. Their life long mission: to explore strange new worlds. To seek out new life and civilizations. To boldly come where no man or woman has come before.

973221

As your species first reached the stars beyond your own solar system, you expected to find a mostly empty, cold galaxy to explore. Instead, you found a massive federation of dozen upon dozen of alien species, far technological superior and advanced compared to your own. They welcomed you with open arms, being more interested in diverse cultures than conquests and the different nations of your species agreed to join then, mostly out of self-preservation and interests in these new technological wonders. You, on the other hand, willingly embraced these new alien overlords for a more… taste related reason.

You are a Burettian, a hairy, two armed mammal like creature standing on two legs at a height of 1,75m on average, which while seemingly normal to you, is something new and exciting for the aliens that you recently met. It has been about 5 years since first contact and you have volunteered to be part of the first real immigration into the stars, to be integrated and live among the strange alien creatures of the black void beyond your own world. While many sought this opportunity to forward their careers, to get a new perspective on life or simply to explore the unknown, you and several likeminded individuals choose to leave behind your old life and travel to the stars for one reason and one reason alone.

Because you’re huge Xenophiles and want to bang a fucking alien.

Though the first question we must ask… are you a man or are you a woman?

>You're clearly a ship model.
As a ship model, you cannot do anything of note, least of all go on a date with an alien life form.
>Tell us about the model, though! Is it one of theirs? Yours? Real? Fiction?
Who knows? Maybe you do, but first you’ll need to know who you are, won’t you? Maybe it’s yours? Maybe it’s a friends? …or maybe it belongs to that dorky roommate of yours who won’t shut up about his max leveled wizard in that computer game that came out years ago.
>Man that's a cool ship model.
That, on the other hand, you can admit. It is a really rad ship!
>Channel your inner Captain Kirk, good sir.
As much as you want to go out on adventure in the vast unknown and explore undiscovered planets, your species was simply too late to the party for you to do that… about a thousand years too late, in fact. You will try to bone a bunch of alien babes, though.

>A girl with the objective of being dicked by aliens.
While that is a noble goal for sure, it seems like that will need to wait for another chance. Instead, you will need to be content with dicking the aliens instead… or maybe you are a man with a taste for dick yourself?
>Intersex.
…maybe later?

>You're a man on a mission, and that mission is love.
And that mission begins now!

How would you describe yourself? Are you…

1. Small, slightly chubby and nearsighted as well as a bit timid, shy and intelligent yet friendly. You work as a computer engineer and your love to play roleplaying games, both in real life as well as digital ones.

2. Large, strong and fuzzy as well as bit dull, stubborn and wise yet many consider you a big softy. You are a security guard and the thing you love the most is to train. Either at the gym or in nature.

3. Lean, albino, slightly feminine as well as confident, vulgar and a rebel yet you’ve always been good at reading people. You came here with your band, in which you play the synth, and you’ve been barely able to stay afloat by playing gigs with them. You love music above all else.

Also, what is your name?

Aw I liked the socially awkwardness of the OG protag, here 2 and 3 just feel too confident/cocky for me.
The idea of willing giving up your old life to go to space cause your life sucked, of trying to get with aliens cause you hardly got with anyone back home cause you don't fit the standards of beauty, of being someone who doesn't have all their shit together and hasn't lived the most interesting life just seemed to resonate with me more.
>>
No. 973346 ID: 62e4df

On the flip side, the first protag was so pathetic they had an an evening out with positive interactions with three members of the opposite sex and considered that such a failure that they were going to commit suicide. I don't want to play such an incel again.

>Maybe we're bi...?
Maybe you are? That’s up to you, after all.
>If a sufficiently handsome/bishie dude comes around we aren't opposed to taking a swing at them.
If you were looking for bishie boys you would have stayed at home. This is weird alien territories.

Now, let us begin…

--------------------------

>Need to see how it plays out to be an aspiring musician in spaaaace.
You are Tristan Dowe, a male albino Burettian, and a musician at trade, though not a very famous one… or wealthy. In fact, one of the reasons why you sought the vast expenses to space was to get another try at it… that, coupled with the fact that you were about to be forced to sleep in a fucking trash container to get by… again…
>Beware of the sun.
An umbrella and a pair of sunglasses usually deal with the sun, though the twin suns on this planet have been surprisingly merciful to you. It’s probably that strange dome that’s around the city you’re in who is responsible for that fact.

>The idea of willing giving up your old life to go to space cause your life sucked…
Your fucking life sucked balls back home. You were sick and tired of always being one bad gig from being out on the street again, always being stuck in the same place without a way to escape and watching everything around you go to fucking shit.
>Trying to get with aliens cause you hardly got with anyone back home cause you don't fit the standards of beauty…
If you’d gotten a credit for each time you’ve gotten your shit kicked out of you because you look different, then you would have been a very rich man. Not to mention all the girls wants either muscular shit houses or cute boys then can push around and not some albino freak wearing makeup… wait, n-no, you m-mean, of course you’ve got l-laid! You got laid all the t-time! The girls were all over you! Y-yeah… that’s right… that’s right, Tristan… you’re cool… keep telling yourself that…
>Tell us about the model, though! Is it one of theirs? Yours? Real? Fiction?
You are pretty sure it’s fictional, though your roommate Mel did buy it when we arrived here, so you guess it might be a real model? Most of the spaceship you’ve seen so far is not that sleek and a lot blockier. You guess you can ask Mel about it, if you actually gave a rat’s ass… but not now, you don’t have time for that dork at the moment.

>Lets make some music.
If by making music you mean making sweet love to an alien, the hell yes. But if you mean actual music then that will need to wait until after the weekend is over, as that’s when you have another rep with the squad.

No, today is a special day! While you’ve been here over a week, you still haven’t been able to really get to know the aliens around here that well… but that changes now. See, you’ve found this dating site dedicated to the special little niche of interspecies relationships and you’ve finally had the courage to make a user on it.

Warning: Interspecies relationships might be dangerous. Please keep the following facts in mind:
Do not eat or drink any cuisine of another species without first checking if it is non-toxic for your species.
Do not ingest any organic material without first checking if it is non-toxic for your species.
Do not put your hand or feet inside the mouth of creatures bigger than... ugh blah blah blah…

Aliena Affinitas is not responsible for any harm, injury, mutilations, dismemberment, mangled organs, poisoning, melting, burning, dissolving, devouring or death that might occur after using this site.

Yes, you fucking get it, you’ll be careful!

It doesn’t take long for it to find several matches for you, though you have to remove several of them for a few reasons, the most common lacking a picture. If they aren’t even willing to take a picture then you can’t really bother with them, can you? In the end, you’re left with six profiles that caught your interests…

You should be very worried. You have to be way too courageous to go for a profile that sound so much like a serial killer trap.
Don't get me wrong, if this is genuine it's one of the best options. The problem is that so far you can't tell anything about this person and neither will the police be able to if you disappear.



Speaking of dangerous...

>Qarka Soulfeaster

Are you feeling adventurous? This one seem to have equal chances of finding you cute or delicious and of loving your music or hating your noise.

Pick this one. From all the options she is the most likely to end up liking you for who you are.

Two of them seem to like music, but would your music be considered too loud and not calm for Qarka? And would your music not be considered classical to Madame Zaliasquenska tatil Xai Le-*bites tongue* fuck! That name is hard to pronounce!

What kind of music do you play? If it's loud then I guess Qarka is a bad match. If you wouldn't mind playing some smooth, calming synth for her then it's a good match.

You're a rebel, so it sounds like Ztolteskanx is a good match.

It's looking like bedding any of these guys effectively is going to be a tall (if adventurous) order. Be sure to look up the physiology - both what they eat and what they excrete - of whoever you pick before showing up.

Personally, my vote's for Sir. He seems like a fellow rebel. Might have drama related to Madame. (Soul's a close second since they like music, and the whole dietary thing would have to refer to nonsentient animals (else they wouldn't be allowed to live among other sentients), though the size difference would have the opposite problem of GamerBug.) BTW, I assume you've already weeded out everyone with incompatible sexuality? Feel free to be a power-bottom on the second or third date, but don't be crass on the first, and try to stay away from BDSM levels of power - you seem like a dom, and I don't think he'd appreciate being a sub.

Meanwhile, Shifter's likes and dislikes send up a huge red flag; they aren't interested in sharing their desires, only to conform to yours. Any relationship you have with them will be shallow and one-sided unless you confront them about that at some point, assuming a date's even what they want out of you. (Just a word of advice in case this one wins; not voting for it myself, though.)

Ooh, though, we totally should encourage Mel to meet with GamerBug - sure, she isn't sexually compatible in a conventional way, but if they both like to roleplay, they could do some LAN party dates. Maybe have some masturbatory improv storytime later down the road. (Do tell him to do his research on her kind's culture if he bites, of course - wouldn't want him to write the wrong line.)

>So you don’t give your own ass about the ship model?
Exactly! If you’re going to give away your own fucking ass, then you need more than just some bloody cheap plastic toy. At least start with some dinner and some shitty movie or some bollocks.
>It's looking like bedding any of these guys effectively is going to be a tall (if adventurous) order. Be sure to look up the physiology - both what they eat and what they excrete - of whoever you pick before showing up.
You’ll make sure it safe before you go on the date, don’t you worry. Though, part of the excitement is going in blind, isn’t it?
>I assume you've already weeded out everyone with incompatible sexuality?
Isn’t that automatic? You’re pretty sure that’s automatic…
>Feel free to be a power-bottom on the second or third date, but don't be crass on the first, and try to stay away from BDSM levels of power - you seem like a dom, and I don't think he'd appreciate being a sub.
Hey, you’re flexible. No matter if they want a power bottom, a normal bottom or someone on top, you’re sure you can please them. Also, where did the BDSM thing come from? You’re not even into that shit?

>Etële, lets fuck some water!
While they are described as being a liquid life form, you don’t think they’ll be like water… maybe more like… jelly? Or maybe like syrup… hmm… you can’t help but wonder if they are sticky or not now…
>You should be very worried. You have to be way too courageous to go for a profile that sound so much like a serial killer trap.
It does sound very much suspect, yeah… but it can’t hurt to just message him... her… them? He said he was male, so you guess he’s a… well, he? But yeah, sending him a message won’t hurt… but you can do that later.
>Shifter's likes and dislikes send up a huge red flag; they aren't interested in sharing their desires, only to conform to yours. Any relationship you have with them will be shallow and one-sided unless you confront them about that at some point, assuming a date's even what they want out of you.
…you know, this is starting to sound like too much fucking work just to get your curiosity sated. Maybe you won’t message them at all…

>Urû Vol, let’s get fucked by a rock!
Would that mean… heh… that he’s going to be ROCK HARD? Hehe… heh… that was fucking horrible…
>Xi'ankh. It's time to make a house call.
She can't actually be the size of a house right? She must have written it in wrong. M3 must be… square meters, so maybe she accidently wrote the size of her apartment down?

>Qarka Soulfeaster. Are you feeling adventurous? This one seem to have equal chances of finding you cute or delicious and of loving your music or hating your noise.
While those claws look thrilling, you don’t like the fifty fifty chance of you being eaten. Maybe you should reread that warning text you saw from before… yeah, you definitely need to reread that thing before you meet any of these aliens in person.
>What kind of music do you play? If it's loud then I guess Qarka is a bad match. If you wouldn't mind playing some smooth, calming synth for her then it's a good match.
You’d like to think that you’re part of an intergalactic synth pop electro-funk band from outer space... so none of your songs are really too loud or scary…
>the whole dietary thing would have to refer to nonsentient animals (else they wouldn't be allowed to live among other sentients).
There’s no fucking way they have aliens around here eating other aliens. That wouldn’t simply work, would it?

>Madame Zaliasquenska tatil Xai Le-*bites tongue* fuck! That name is hard to pronounce!
...she’s called Madame Zalia under her picture, so you’re going to call her that as well. But yeah, she is the kind of lady that likes her titles, apparently.
>Compare Sir Ztolteskanx tol Xai's name and Madame Zaliasquenska tatil Xai Lentazin's.
They do seem familiar, but you can’t really tell because those Raolme names are tongue twisters if you’ve ever seen them. Hmm… maybe they are siblings? After all, she’s only… err… only… why does her profile say that she’s over 400 years old? Can that really be true?


>Go for Dragonknight.
He does seem to be handsome looking, even with the lack of eyes… and you did like his bowtie. Also, he’s an actual Sir, which is just kind of badass… yeah, you think you’ll send him a message, see if he’s interested.
>He sounds like he’s trying to get out from under his family. He might even be a fellow rebel, like you!
People who call themselves rebels seldom are. But it does sound like he wants to have some fun, so that’s a huge fucking positive. Either way, you’ve marked him as being interesting on the site, so you’ll just need to wait and see if he response.

>Don't be an asshole to Mel. You know what it's like to be treated like shit.
Hey, you’re not a fucking asshole to Mel! He’s just a bit annoying at time… but… shit, maybe you were being an asswipe.
>Isn't our buddy Mel into nerd things? Maybe we could try to convince him to make an account on this dating website and try to hook him up with GamerBug.
He’s not really your buddy, he’s just your roommate. You didn’t meet him until you traveled here, so you haven’t actually known him for more than a week and a half. He definitely needs to get laid, though, and you’re the perfect fucking guy to help him! Well, the only bollock here to help him, not counting the muscle head that also lives here, but still.
:TristanBC: Hey, Mel, check this shit out.
:MelBC: Huh? W-wasn’t you busy just a moment ago?
:TristanBC: Yeah, I fucking was and I still fucking am, but I decided to share this busy shit with you.
:MelBC: What is that? Some kind of game?
:TristanBC: It’s a fucking dating site, you dork, for finding fucking aliens interested in fucking interspecies fucking! Well, it starts with dates, but you know where those things can go, right?
:MelBC: Err… t-that’s… um… n-neat…?
:TristanBC: And look, here’s a cute little bug interested in dork stuff just like you. I mean, even if you don’t want to take her on a date, you can always nerd out together as friends?
:MelBC: Um… I g-guess?
:TristanBC: Want some help setting up a profile, mate?
:MelBC: I t-think I can d-do that on my own… I… err… j-just need some time to digest this… and… err… I’m n-not sure about the… um… bug?
>Then we can ask him if she's actually the size of a house or not.
:MelBC: …she’s what?
:TristanBC: It has to be a mistype, but it says that she’s 75 square meters big.
:MelBC: Can’t you just look up her species and see if it’s true?
:TristanBC: Eh, that would be fucking boring as shit, though.

:MelBC: Um… why is there a red heart over the first one?
:TristanBC: Oh sweet, he returned my notice of interest! Let’s see what he has to say…
:MelBC: …wait, he?
-----------------------
:ZtoltBC: [Greetings]
:ZtoltBC: [I got your request?]
:ZtoltBC: [I don’t know what I need to do now. It’s my first time doing something like this?]
:TristanBC: [Hey, no fucking sweat, I’m new to this too, mate.]
:ZtoltBC: [Mate?]
:TristanBC: [The names Tristan Dowe btw.]
:TristanBC: [And you are Sir Ztolt?]
:ZtoltBC: [I prefer to be addressed as just Zstolt.]
:ZtoltBC: [I dislike the Sir part greatly.]
:ZtoltBC: [And what does your btw title stand for?]
:TristanBC: [It’s “By the way”, not a title.]
:TristanBC: [Also, why not Sir? It’s pretty sweet.]
:TristanBC: [Makes you sound like a fucking badass ready to kick some ass!]

:TristanBC: Hey, Mel, by the way, what does Quadrupedal mean?
:MelBC: Um… well… Quadrupedalism is a form of locomotion in animals, often known as quadruped, which means “four feet” in-
:TristanBC: They walk on all fours, is that it?
:MelBC: Err… yes?
:TristanBC: Sweet.

:ZtoltBC: [It would be a splendid title if I actually earned it.]
:ZtoltBC: [I was just born in to the right family.]
:TristanBC: [Then it’s time to earn that bad boy?]
:ZtoltBC: [Because there is so many acts of bravery to do around here to earn it.]
:ZtoltBC: [Besides, I’m not really that kind of person.]
:ZtoltBC: [I mean, fucking badass.]
:ZtoltBC: [I’m not fucking badass.]
:TristanBC: [Hey, anyone can be fucking badass if they try.]
:ZtoltBC: [I rather stay not fucking badass if that means not getting into mortal danger.]
:ZtoltBC: [I mean.]
:ZtoltBC: [Not getting into deep feces?]
:TristanBC: [Deep shit.]
:ZtoltBC: [Deep shit, yes.]

:ZtoltBC: [Btw, can you send a picture of you that I can actually hear?]
:TristanBC: [I already have a picture for you on my profile?]
:ZtoltBC: [I don’t have eyes. I need to hear your shape.]
:ZtoltBC: [There should be an option to take a pic with sonarsync on the datapad.]
:TristanBC: [I am sure it is here somewhere?]

:TristanBC: Hey, Mel, you know how you can take something called sonarsync with this thing?
:MelBC: Um… no, sorry… err… I guess I can look it up?
:TristanBC: That would be fucking awesome, mate. Thanks.

:ZtoltBC: [While you try and find that]
:ZtoltBC: [This is supposed to be a date, yes?]
:TristanBC: [That is the current agreement, yes.]
:ZtoltBC: [We start with a dinner at this five star restaurant where I can get a table at]
:ZtoltBC: [Followed by a play in the theater]
:ZtoltBC: [Then a kiss on the check at the door before parting ways.]
:TristanBC: [That seemed absurdly formulaic?]
:TristanBC: [Also, I do not think theater is my fucking style.]
:TristanBC: [Sounds boring as fuck]
:TristanBC: [No offence]
:ZtoltBC: [IT IS!]
:ZtoltBC: [BORING!]
:ZtoltBC: [AS FUCK!]
:ZtoltBC: [Yet that is what I was forced to endure every time I tried a date before!]
:TristanBC: [Forced?]
:ZtoltBC: [My family wants to decide who I have a date it and how it do it.]
:ZtoltBC: [It’s horrid.]
:TristanBC: [It sucks balls?]
:ZtoltBC: [I suck all the balls! That’s how much it sucks!]
:TristanBC: [And what about me?]
:TristanBC: [Something tells me I’m not on their fucking approved dating list.]
:ZtoltBC: [They don’t know about you]
:TristanBC: [So I’m the secret date then? Sweet.]
:ZtoltBC: [It is indeed very sugary and sweet.]
:ZtoltBC: [It is also very sour as I have no idea what to do instead.]
:ZtoltBC: [What do you do on a date?]

:MelBC: Err… Tris, it’s that button you need to press to do the… um… sonar thingy?

Okay time to profile picture. Make sure Mel isn't in the frame, get a good pose, and push the button.
>what to do on date
He finds plays boring so find something more active or engaging. Like... is there a flea market or something you could go to and browse around? Could also go for a walk or a hike somewhere interesting. Are there any festivals? You could see if there are any uh, theme park like things, even if it's a single event like an escape room.
Give him a few options for restaurants. How different does he want his dining to be? Greasy spoon? Decent quality buffet? Some weird gimmicky restaurant? Hmm, how about a revolving sushi bar, or something similar at least where you can pick out small dishes from a conveyor belt? Definitely make sure it's not high class cuisine.
Then later you can do more than a single kiss. Don't have to go that far on a first date but extended makeouts are definitely on the table.
>>
No. 973443 ID: ce39da

[Oh, found the button. Sending you a pic now.] Have Mel walk you through it, but also make sure he's out of the shot. [How do I sound?]

For the record, if you don't remember inputting that info about your sexuality, then it's probably something you should ask him about, like [Before I forget, are you cool with me being a dude?]

[Anyway, we both agree with theatre sucking balls, but a meal's pretty much required on most dates. We prolly don't wanna get seen together at those 5-Star places you were talking about, but that doesn't mean we should skimp on the food. Lemme see if I can't find us a nice 4-Star place I'll be able to fit into better.]

You use the word “fucking” a little too much. Might want to cut down on that because it’s a little weird to be using that word 5 times in the same sentence.

>date
You’re gonna need to rely on Zstolt to show around since you’re still really new to the space station. And ask him where he wants to go for a date, not where he’s been told he’s supposed to go for a date.

>Err…Tris, it’s that button you need to press to do the…um…sonar thingy?
“Thanks, buddy!”

Take a sonarsync picture of yourself and send it over to Zstolt.

If he's not enthusiastic about his usual hangouts, why not show him yours? You probably don't know much about the area yet, but you've probably found a pub you like, right? You could have some drinks, eat some pub food, then go see what sights there are to see. You could even ask him to show you around.

Ask if he wants to go to a rock concert. That's more your style, but if he sees with sound it might be a real trip for him.

>You use the word “fucking” a little too much. Might want to cut down on that because it’s a little weird to be using that word 5 times in the same sentence.
Hey, that was kind of the joke. Also, you really like the word fuck. Fuck fuck fuckily fuck… okay, maybe you’re saying it bit too much at times, you admit…
>You’re still really new to the space station.
What space station? You’re on some alien colony on some planet that’s located near the edge of this massive alien empire spanning most of the galaxy. It is kind of a lot to take in now that you think about it, honestly.
>Then later you can do more than a single kiss. Don't have to go that far on a first date but extended makeouts are definitely on the table.
You’re willing to go all the way to the goal post if that’s an option, but you won’t force Ztolt into something he doesn’t want. If he just want a kiss, then a kiss he’ll get… but if he want to drag you home and have some fucking fun… well… we’ll see…


>“Thanks, buddy!”
:MelBC: D-don’t mention it… um… pal? So… d-do you need any more help or can I leave now?
:TristanBC: Huh? Where are you in such a bloody hurry?
:MelBC: Oh… y-you know… got stuff to do…
:TristanBC: Like checking out the site I showed you?
:MelBC: Ye- I mean… err… no, of course not… um… bye?
:TristanBC: Have fun, heh…

>You’re gonna need to rely on Zstolt to show around since you’re still really new to this planet.
:ZtoltBC: [So the deaf will be leading the deaf then.]
:ZtoltBC: [I guess if you have some idea on what we will do, I can try and provide a location for it?]
>Ask him where he wants to go for a date, not where he’s been told he’s supposed to go for a date.
:ZtoltBC: [Do not turn this around on me! I asked you first!]
:ZtoltBC: [Besides, I already told you, I am not sure.]
:ZtoltBC: [I am shit out of ideas.]

>Could also go for a walk or a hike somewhere interesting.
:ZtoltBC: [There is the park in high town that has some really beautiful vistas, especially in the evening.]
:ZtoltBC: [But walking around seem a bit dull.]
:ZtoltBC: [I mean]
:ZtoltBC: [Boring as fuck?]
:ZtoltBC: [No offence?]
:TristanBC: [It is a great opportunity to talk and get to know each other and shit, though.]
:ZtoltBC: [That is true.]
:ZtoltBC: [Yes, maybe a walk in the park would make a decent date after all.]
>is there a flea market or something you could go to and browse around?
:ZtoltBC: [I can’t say if there is any markets like that around. I do not really keep my nose out for it.]
:TristanBC: [How about a festival or something then?]
:ZtoltBC: [Isn’t the culture festival this weekend here in high town?]
:ZtoltBC: [Yes, it is. It is starting today in fact.]
:ZtoltBC: [It is filled with all kind of old stuff from the days before we traveled the stars and shit like that.]
:TristanBC: [That does kind of sound freaking sweet.]
:ZtoltBC: [I haven’t been there since I was a kit]
:ZtoltBC: [Though I usually aren’t that interested in that shit]
:ZtoltBC: [But it does sound, as you say, freaking sweet to go there with you.]
:TristanBC: [Aw, how sweet of you.]
:ZtoltBC: [Don’t make this sour.]
>You could see if there are any uh, theme park like things, even if it's a single event like an escape room.
:ZtoltBC: [Why would you escape a room? What’s in the room?]
:TristanBC: [It’s full of fucking puzzles and shit. Then you solve them and find a way out on a timer?]
:ZtoltBC: [I don’t think we have anything like that.]
:ZtoltBC: [There is this scary mansion thing in low town]
:ZtoltBC: [Never been there but I heard it’s alright?]
:ZtoltBC: [That’s like an escape house?]
:TristanBC: [That’s completely different.]
:TristanBC: [But I does sound kind of fun!]
:ZtoltBC: [I don’t know. I’ve never liked scary shit.]
:TristanBC: [Aren’t you the brave Sir Ztolt?]
:ZtoltBC: [Who bravely ran away. Yeah, that’s me.]
:ZtoltBC: [But I guess if you’re there I’ll be alright?]
>If he's not enthusiastic about his usual hangouts, why not show him yours? You probably don't know much about the area yet, but you've probably found a pub you like, right?
:TristanBC: [Oh, hey, actually I do know a place. It’s not a big place, but it might just do!]
:ZtoltBC: [I will need a better description than it’s not a big place, Tristan.]
:TristanBC: [It’s kind of a bar.]
:TristanBC: [Where a bunch of different alien bands play.]
:TristanBC: [So you listen and drink and shit.]
:TristanBC: [My band have gotten a steady gig there twice a week.]
:ZtoltBC: [You are in a band?]
:TristanBC: [Yeah, I’m in a freaking band, mate!]
:ZtoltBC: [Then I will need to listen to you play sometime.]
:ZtoltBC: [But that can wait.]
:ZtoltBC: [And while I do love listening to music, some alien instruments and songs can be outright painful to hear.]
:ZtoltBC: [Do you know who will play?]
:TristanBC: [I have no fucking idea, no… and I don’t think I have anyway to look it up either.]
:ZtoltBC: [I guess we can always leave if things go wrong?]

:TristanBC: [So, what sounds the most awesome? Take a trip through that culture festival, get scared shitless at that hunted mansion, go to the bar and listen to some music will getting shitfaced or just have a calm walk in the part? I’m up for all of them.]
:ZtoltBC: [I can’t really decide.]
:TristanBC: [Aw, come on, you’re leaving me with the decision making again?]
:ZtoltBC: [As I said before. I have no fucking idea what I’m doing and what will work as a date.]

>Okay time to profile picture. Make sure Mel isn't in the frame, get a good pose, and push the button.
As Mel has already left the room a while ago, you won’t need to worry about him. Instead, you simply lift up your data pad, make a cheesy pose and press the button. While you were expecting a flash of light or something like that, instead the only thing you heard was a really weird clicking sound. It sounded really out of place coming from the data pad… in fact; it sounded more like an insect? Either way, you can only hope you managed to take a decent picture.

:ZtoltBC: [I am not used to men wearing makeup.]

Well, it's not great to get too drunk on the first date, especially if you're not sure if sex is on the table.
Go to the festival! At worst it's slightly less boring than a walk in the park. It's reasonable to pick a safe bet for the first date, and try something riskier for future dates, after you've built up some goodwill.

You were caught by surprise how positively he reacted to seeing your picture… but of course he thought you were cute. Yeah, you’re super cute! Sure… you’ll accept that. Cute. That works. It’s not what you expected but it works.

Oh shit. You have a date.

And you’re going to fuck it up, like you always fuck these things up. You are a fuckup, and you know it. Or you can make it work. Somehow. Just… act confident. Pretend to be confident. Like you always do. Keep telling yourself you’re confident, that you can do this, and sooner or later you’ll believe the lies. You can do this. You won’t fuck it up. This time you will actually succeed in fucking charming the lady… or the gentleman… as is the case… shit...

And in two hours!? You were expecting tomorrow or even the day after that, not in two hours! How are you supposed to be able to both calm down and get ready in just two hours!? Ugh… deep breaths, Tristan, deep breathes… you can do this… just act… confident… yeah… confident… freak…

>Insectivore... can he eat smaller crustaceans? Shrimp or Crayfish?
You have no idea! Maybe you can ask Mel if he… but you’ve already bothered that dork way to much already. Ugh, you’re going to fuck this up, aren’t you? You’re going to make him eat something he can’t stand… or you’re going to eat something you can’t stand? Because insects… ugh…
>Wonder if he can hear inside bodies and through clothing, like with an active sonar or ultrasonic scan or something like that? Maybe something to ask at an appropriate time?
Wait, how powerful is their hearing anyway? Or their smell? Is your smell going to be a problem? And the sounds you make? He won’t be able to see through you clothes, though… right? That doesn’t sound very plausible… but this is something you’ll need to worry about. Smell and noise… two more ways you can fuck everything up, as always.
>Well, it's not great to get too drunk on the first date, especially if you're not sure if sex is on the table.
Your nerves needs some fucking courage, but you get so easily shitfaced, don’t you? Ugh, going to the bar was probably a fuckup. You’re really bad with alcohol… though you really need a glass or two right now, not to mention all the other options wasn’t any better, really.

Maybe this was a shit idea…

No, Tristan, focus. Just focus on what you need to do before the date. You need to get cleaned. That’s easy. But he he’s blind, so smell is important to him, so… maybe you should skip putting on your usual cologne? Or maybe he’ll prefer something a bit more strong smelling? Then you need to dress the part. But dress how? You don’t really look ready for a date, do you? And he said he liked the makeup? Maybe you should add some more? Or did he actually say that? Maybe it’s better to remove it? Ugh, stop second guessing yourself… what more… you need… what more shit do you need for a date?

Maybe you just need to crawl under your blanket and pretend this never happened?
>>
No. 973544 ID: b1b4f3

>>973542
Take bath, put on a *little* cologne, to play things safe while keeping your routine intact.
Check your chat log to reaffirm that he said your makeup made you look cuter, and... don't change it. I guess you'll have to reapply it after the bath, but just... put on the same kind.
Clothes... wear something nice, but casual since it's a lunch date and not a dinner date. Maybe something a little more feminine than you usually wear, but not enough that people would stare? Whatever makes you feel comfortable with who you are. This is an alien colony which means very few will know that it's unusual, much less something to judge you over.

>other things?
Try to calm down. Get a drink of water, use the restroom, make sure your nails are nice, brush your teeth, and let Mel know you're going out.

Little colgne, keep the makeup cause he liked it. Make sure to BATHE. If smells are important, you don't want to saturate things so much that you are smellin like you walked through a perfume store during rush hour.

You're overthinking it. take a moment to calm down.

I'm sure if during your date any sounds were bothering him he'd let you know, same as you'd do if say something with you albinism was bothering you. as for food, you're on an alien planet, everywhere's probably got at least something for some one.

Just get cleaned up and get ready, you have 2 hours.

He isn't familiar with your specie, so whatever you do he will assume is part of your culture until told otherwise. Dress how you would usually dress and act like you would usually act for he will not know what normal means for your kind.
He is already making an effort to incorporate your speech patters on his own, so if you intent to change your behavior in any way limit yourself to mimic his speech patters the same way he is doing. Things like replacing "blind" with "deaf" or using "endless dark" as an exclamation.

You've already secured a date! That's more than some can even hope for. Your date wants to meet you, so in a way, you're already desirable and doing things right.

>You're going to make him eat something he can't stand, or he's going to make you eat something you can't stand
No. You're going out for lunch, and if the dish doesn't agree with you, you just move on to another one. He's sensible enough to do the same.

>anxiety, calming down before the date
Clear your mind, and just focus on deep breathing in and out, until the anxiety clears, thinking about how you're going to freshen up and the other things you'll do before your date. Do things one step at a time to get ready.

If you haven't bathed or hit the showers today, go do that real quick. Do whatever quick grooming you need to do, make sure your makeup is applied right the way you would have it on usually.

>maybe you should skip putting on your cologne
Look up, real quick, if your cologne's type of scent is distasteful to his species. If it is, you just dodged a bullet, go au natural. If it isn't go for it.

Zstolt wants someone to talk to as an equal. Don't worry about catering to his every exacting preference during the date, just show up in clothes you think look good to yourself.

>maybe you can ask Mel, but you've bothered that dork too much already.
No way, it's a simple question, and you should ask him. Surely he'll want to help.

I say take shower, get dressed like you're about to do a gig with your band and head on out. And the reason I'm saying put on your band gear is because I'm sure you try and look good while preforming and if the bar you're heading to recognizes you maybe they'll be a little friendly know that you're more or less a regular.

Oh and do you think you'll need your umbrella and shades, especially if this does turn into a walk or a trip at the fair it would really suck for the sun to ruin things but with the dome up you said it wasn't bothering you as much so... think it might be a good idea to bring them just to be safe?

Most important factors are cleanliness, neatness, and honesty.

Make sure you're clean and well-groomed, but don't change your style. You want to be yourself here. Listen to him on the date, and hope that he'll listen to you. Confidence is good, but lying about who you are isn't. Focus on your positive aspects. Maybe it will go wrong and you will offend him, but the only guarantee of that is if you don't go.

I'm sure the restaurant will be able to cater to Raolme; I'd be more worried about yourself, but you'll never know until you try it.

Well, when an ultrasound is given or the right type of sea creatures use their abilities to see into things, there's a feeling to it. The sound produces a physical vibration sensation in the part being scanned. It is an ACTIVE ability where sound has to be overtly emitted! So if you feel a strange tingling/vibration in certain parts of your body that you can't explain otherwise (perhaps because it's outside your normal range of hearing)... it might be a sonar/echolocation scan, maybe? ... Wait, don't those sea creatures use the scans erotically? Man, if he could do that, that would be AWESOME for bedroom stuff!

>Switch POV to Mel.
As much as you wish to be someone that has it as easy as Mel has, you can’t. At least, not right now. You’ll simply have to wait for another thread to get his point of view.

>Confidence is good, but lying about who you are isn't.
And if you wish you were the lie you keep telling yourself? After all, you are a confident, handsome dude that takes no shit… and… you’re cute?
>You're overthinking it. Take a moment to calm down.
That’s right, you need to stop thinking about this shit to deeply and focus on the now instead. You might be a fuckup later, but right now you aren’t.
>You've already secured a date! That's more than some can even hope for. Your date wants to meet you, so in a way, you're already desirable and doing things right.
You’ve always found it rather easy to secure dates, the problem is actually getting through them. Usually you do something to fuck everything up… but just as often it’s already gone to crap because they expected someone else… either in your personality or your looks.

>Zstolt wants someone to talk to as an equal.
Which is the problem. He wants someone who is his equal…
>This guy wants to break out of his shell, live on the wild side.
Now that is something you might just be able to help him with. After all, you’ve always been bloody wild.
>if the bar you're heading to recognizes you maybe they'll be a little friendly know that you're more or less a regular.
Which is part why you suggested that place in particular. You know the fuckers that work there… well, some of them… but most importantly the bouncer.

>Most important factors are cleanliness, neatness, and honesty.
Cleanliness is freaking easy, neatness in your surroundings isn’t your thing most of the time but you usually keep yourself neat at the very least. As for honesty… well…
>A shower will help you relax.
A cold shower does soothe the soul as well as cleans it.
>Listen to some hard rock to psych yourself up and get in the mood.
The mood leans more toward Synth Rock, so you put some on while taking that shower.
>Make sure your nails are nice.
You polished them this morning, so they should be nice and soft.
>Brush your teeth.
Which you also did this morning, though it won’t fucking hurt to use some mouth wash. Better to have a minty fresh breath than one that reeks of dead shit.

>Keep the makeup cause he liked it.
He did say he liked it, didn’t he? Though… he had a hard time actually seeing… err… hearing it? Hmm... Will he even notice if you put on a bit of mascara? You usually don’t wear it but…
>Put on a *little* cologne, to play things safe while keeping your routine intact.
Yes, safe… you like safe when it comes to dates… safe is good… as far as you can get from fucking up, really.
>Look up, real quick, if your cologne's type of scent is distasteful to his species.
And you’ve already done your first fuckup by not checking that first! Luckily… or unluckily, you can’t find anything about this particularly scent at all. Of course, you can’t really understand what scents his species find distasteful either, with the exception of the usual things that most people think smells like shit. Well, there were a warning about powerful smells, but that’s about it…

>Get dressed like you're about to do a gig with your band.
You really don’t want to go around in costume all night… not to mention you don’t think Ztolt would appreciate it either. Besides, that thing is a nightmare to get shit out of, so no fucking thanks.
>Clothes... wear something nice, but casual since it's a lunch date and not a dinner date.
Your usual clothes are as casual as you can get, really… though of course you don’t really have any super nice shit to put on in the first place anyway.
>Maybe something a little more feminine than you usually wear, but not enough that people would stare? Whatever makes you feel comfortable with who you are.
Do you even have anything that feminine to wear? You do have some things that are more pink and purple. Yeah, no matter what the other fuckers says, you’ve always been able to rock the pink!

So it’s either that or the clothes you usually wear… or should you hurry and buy something new before the date? Hmm… he was wearing a bowtie in that picture, so maybe he’s expecting a suit? You don’t... do suits very well…


>Let Mel know you're going out.
You can hear him talking to himself in the other room, so you don’t even need to leave the bathroom to speak to him.
:TristanBC: Hey, Mel, what was that about talking to yourself you said earlier?
:MelBC: Huh!? I wasn- I mean, I… err… did… I’m s-sorry.
:TristanBC: No sweat, dude. You do you. Just wanted to say I’m going to bail soon, so lock up if you leave, you dig?
:MelBC: Err… sure… um… good luck?
>No way, it's a simple question about insectivore, and you should ask Mel. Surely he'll want to help.
:MelBC: What? Why would I know about alien diets? I mean… I’m pretty sure crustaceans aren’t insects, Tris? Why don’t you look it up yourself?
:TristanBC: Because I only understand like half the shit that they write in that freaking Archive thing of theirs!
:MelBC: Then ask them about what they eat?
:TristanBC: …I guess that works too? Thanks a bunch, mate.

>No. You're going out for lunch, and if the dish doesn't agree with you, you just move on to another one. He's sensible enough to do the same.
Right. He’s an adult, just like you. You don’t need to worry about him, as he will take care of himself. You need to stop thinking that this is like some badly written dating sim or something!
>I'm sure the restaurant will be able to cater to Raolme; I'd be more worried about yourself, but you'll never know until you try it.
They’ll probably have more food for him than they have for you, seeing as you’re the one they’ll find more alien. After all, you’re in their home, not the other way around. You are the alien… fuck, that’s kind of weird… shit man…
>I'm sure if during your date any sounds were bothering him he'd let you know, same as you'd do if say something with you albinism was bothering you.
Indeed, he is after all a human being who you can talk to and… well, he’s not human, but you get the idea.
>Oh and do you think you'll need your umbrella and shades?
You always have them in your bag, just in case.

>When an ultrasound is given or the right type of sea creatures use their abilities to see into things, there's a feeling to it. So if you feel a strange tingling/vibration in certain parts of your body that you can't explain otherwise it might be a sonar/echolocation scan, maybe?
Hmm… the only thing you experienced when you activated that Sonarsync crap was a weird sound, but that might change when you meet Ztolt in person.
>Wait, don't those sea creatures use the scans erotically? Man, if he could do that, that would be AWESOME for bedroom stuff!
That’s… err… heh, yeah, that would be awesome, wouldn’t it. And weird… but mostly sweet.

>Also remember to leave early.
You still have a full hour, so it’s still a bit too early to be leave early.

Let’s see… calmed the fuck down: Check. Cleaned up: Check. Solved the dress situation… well, you haven’t actually decided yet but… almost check?

Let’s see… what else… is there anything more you need to do before the date? Maybe grab a glass of liquid courage? Or have a quick wank. You’ve heard that supposed to be something you do before a date. Of course, you heard that from a terrible movie, but still… and aren’t you supposed to bring a gift or something? Hmm…

Zstolt wants to have a fun and interesting date. Gift giving and making yourself out to not be his equal are exactly how not to go.

Don't make a big deal out of his social status, just treat him as your equal, because in this situation you are: you're looking to get to know each other personally over the course of lunch.

Well, normal clothes are fine for a lunch date too. Just so long as you look good. The color doesn't matter, as someone else said, so... the style and condition is more important. Maybe material as well but we don't know what he likes in that respect.

Mascara could work but it shouldn't matter. He thought you looked really good with just eyeliner on. Leave it off.

Honestly, there's nothing you can do right now that will matter, if your problem is that you do/say something wrong during the date that fucks it up. I wonder though, is that even possible here? You're dating someone from a completely different culture, who won't expect you to know his culture. If you offend him, you can just apologize and find out how to avoid doing so again.

It's probably too early for gifts, but he's inexperienced at this. If he brings a gift and you don't have one it might seem rude.

>Didn't you said that you get shitface easily? Drunk people are only fun to hang around when you are also drunk, so don't start before Zstolt.
Ugh… getting drunk will make you fuck up, yes, but without it you’re going to be a bundle of nerves the whole time…
>Don't shoot your load just yet, we're running things tight on energy and drive as it is! We want to go into this with some mana.
It probably was a horrid advice anyway, from a shitty movie.

>Wear what you usually do.
Actually, just going as yourself is kind of calming in a way.
>The color doesn't matter, you are dating a blind person.
You keep forgetting that he is blind… though, you have to wonder, how much can he actually see? He did see that you were cute, so there’s that, but you don’t really know what he will or won’t notice.
>Mascara could work but it shouldn't matter. He thought you looked really good with just eyeliner on. Leave it off.
So leave it as you usually have it…
>Maybe material matters as well but we don't know what he likes in that respect.
Hmm… material and smell is probably more important to him than color… but you can’t really predict what he will like or not.

>It's probably too early for gifts, but he's inexperienced at this. If he brings a gift and you don't have one it might seem rude.
Which kind of puts you in a bind, doesn’t it? You guess you can get something and only give it if he brings a gift as well? That might work…
>Like flowers? That is pretty gay dude.
You’re going on a date with a man, so it’s as gay as it gets already. Though… aren’t they some kind of reptile? Which means… they don’t have balls… so… your balls can’t touch, thus it is impossible for it to be gay?
>Bring a song album, maybe one of yours'? You can play it off as wanting to show off your music if it turns out to be a no gift thing, and see if he can even listen to your music.
That’s an amazing idea! Not only is it a personal gift, but you can show off your skills to him as well! You just need to remember to play it cool and not force it… as well as hope that he likes the music.

>Honestly, there's nothing you can do right now that will matter, if your problem is that you do/say something wrong during the date that fucks it up.
Being prepared and in the right mindset helps… not to mention going on a date looking like a pile of shit is never endearing… be it intentionally or not. Hmm… better make sure that you haven’t been sitting in anything vile, that has happened once and you’ll make fucking sure it doesn’t again.
>You're dating someone from a completely different culture, who won't expect you to know his culture. If you offend him, you can just apologize and find out how to avoid doing so again.
You can still offend him so massively that he won’t forgive it… or keep offending him some way over and over again… or you can just be bore or a turd or something else he isn’t attractive to… there’s so many ways to fuck up…
>Don't make a big deal out of his social status, just treat him as your equal, because in this situation you are: you're looking to get to know each other personally over the course of lunch.
What even is his social status? Is he a big deal? Oh shit, are you going on a date with some big shot!? What if you’ll need to look out for bodyguards… or paparazzi… or… or mafia goons or… whatever!? Fuck it, Tris, stop it! You’re overthinking this shit again! You’re sure he’ll be just a normal dude with a normal job… that’s still important enough to get titles thrown at him… yeah…

Alright, time to stop fucking around and be awesome! You’re here! You’ll endear! You are probably queer! …and you’re almost a whole ten minutes early, giving you plenty of time to get a table and relax for a bit before Ztolts gets here.

Then you get a message from Aliena Affinitas, the dating site the two of you were using… a message containing information that is good to know before you go on a date with a Raolme. Apparently, your species share the same kind of acids, so most food that they serve will be fine for your consummation, though they will mostly only eat insects. It also says that… ah… sexual fluids are fine to be… ingested… so no protection is needed? Though there are a few warnings as well…

Warning: Strong sounds and smells can disorient a Raolme, and is considered very rude.
Warning: Raolme teeth are very sharp. If a bite results in bleeding, seek medical aid immediately.
Warning: Raolme teeth are venomous and while not deadly, even the slightest touch may result in temporary localized paralysis. While not fatal on its own, it might create dangerous situations.
Warning: If you are an insectoid species, please reconsider your dating partners. There have been many cases of accidental ingestion, even in situation where you the insectoid was consider larger than the Raolme.
Warning: Do not tie a Raolme into a knot. They do not like it.

Oh right. You were so busy being a sad piece of shit that you forget to fucking read up on his species. But you still have a few minutes, so you’re sure you can look it up real quick… at least the important stuff. Let’s see… they are blind… have really good smell… navigates through echolocation? Huh… cool… hmm… walks on all fours… their bones are malleable? What does that even mean? They can grow, extend and retract bone structures at will? They can move all their internal organs? What? The? Fuck? What have you gotten yourself into?

>If this date goes well, you guys might end up in bed together! Just make sure you guys wear protection so that neither of you end up pregnant!
…how would that even… you know what, they are already weird as hell, so you better make sure… no, they can’t make others butt pregnant, thank god. So that’s something at least that you won’t need to worry about.
>He's an alien, you don't know how his biology works! It's entirety possible that you could get Zstolt pregnant! Or he could get you pregnant! There's a very real chance that could happen, even though both of you are male!
According to this archive thing the aliens got, then fuck no, that won’t happen. Their baby making ways are surprisingly similar to your own, in that the dude blow a load into the girl and then a baby happens…

A weird clicking sounds next to you brings you out of your daydreaming about weird alien pregnancies. It’s the same sound you heard when you took that sonar picture, in fact. Looking down, you find who you can only assume is Sir Ztolt standing right next to you, looking… you think he’s a bit lost? You’re not sure… you can’t really read aliens that well yet.

:ZtoltBC: May I have a moment, my fungalniod fellow? I am in search of someone of the Burettian species, so may I ask if you can direct me to one that’s possibly sitting alone, seemingly waiting for someone? As you certainly know, they are a rather new species, so I haven’t had the chance to learn what they smell like yet… not to mention all these people, smells and noises is confusing me a bit… fuck, am I even in the right building?

:ZtoltBC: Sir Ztolteskanx tol Xai, chu ton o Ankh, yadda yadda and shit, the second… but call me Ztolt. Just Ztolt. And I would entangle my tail with yours but it seems a bit small for that… that is your tail, correct?
:TristanBC: That is indeed my tail, mate.
>And since he mentioned that he doesn’t know what you smell like, he might try to smell you. If he does, let him and don’t push him away.
:ZtoltBC: I have to ask, may I… ah… get your scent?
:TristanBC: Go crazy, Z.
:ZtoltBC:
:TristanBC: That means you may get my scent.
:ZtoltBC: I… assumed as much, but it’s better to be careful.

His snout almost brushes against your waist as he sniffs you… you’re just lucky he’s wasn’t just a bit shorter, or this might have been even more awkward…

>Oh and do mention your cologne if he's trying to get your scent.
:ZtoltBC: So that what that is. It is remarkable similar to the smell of a Mrrgh.
:TristanBC: I’m fucking sorry if it made it a bit confusing for you.
:ZtoltBC: No no, it is fine. It’s just a coincidence… unless you’re trying to smell like a large, walking mushroom?
:TristanBC: Unless they smell freaking sweet, then no, I wasn’t.
:ZtoltBC: Talking of sweet… the smell under it… what is that?
:TristanBC: …you mean my natural smell?
:ZtoltBC: No, something else… it’s a bit fruity? It’s some kind of fruit I’ve never smelled before…
:TristanBC: …you mean my shampoo? It is strawberry scented.
:ZtoltBC: I have no idea what you just said, but it smells lovely.
:TristanBC: I’ll keep that in mind to next time.

>You're looking handsome.
:ZtoltBC: Thank you. Sadly, I cannot say the same for you.
:TristanBC: Um…
:ZtoltBC: No, wait, that came out wrong. I cannot say the same for you because I can’t get a good look at you like this. I do like the glasses, though. They make you look sharp.
:TristanBC: And I love your hat, mate. It’s ado- It’s really dapper.
:ZtoltBC: And functional.
:TristanBC: Oh? What does it do? Protect you from the sun as well?
:ZtoltBC: It protects me from unwanted head pats.
:TristanBC: …unwanted pats?
:ZtoltBC: You’d be fucking surprised how often aliens likes to pat us on the head for some reason… so wearing a hat protect me from that.
:TristanBC: …heh, a likely story. That thing clearly doesn’t protect you from snout pats, which would probably increase thanks to how ad- how dapper that hat makes you look.
:ZtoltBC: *Snrk* Alright, yes, I’m kidding. No, it’s my teeth that protects me from those head pats.
:TristanBC: Teeth?
:ZtoltBC: I might bite the hand that pet me?
:TristanBC: By the eternal darkness, remind me to ask for permission before I try to pat you.
:ZtoltBC: Ha!

Ztolt snout widens into a large grin filled with wicked teeth, a grin that’s just slightly too big… it’s a good thing you resisted the urge to pet him earlier…

:ZtoltBC: It’s the endless dark… and please, you don’t need use our phrases and words. I rather listen to the shit you say in your own tongue.
:TristanBC: Noted… though I just assumed that you were doing too same with me, what with the sudden swearing.
:ZtoltBC: Swearing? No, swearing is kind of a universal language…or at least it’s easily translated between species. No, I don’t swear for your sake, but my own. Though I admit I might be trying to learn a few new phrases from you. It’s just… when I am with my usual circles of associates and family, I’m forced to be all prim and proper.
:TristanBC: While with me you can let lose a bit and talk shit?
:ZtoltBC: It’s a little freedom, but a nice one, to be able to say that they are all fucking… um…
:TristanBC: Wankers?
:ZtoltBC: I’m sure that sounds better in your langue, but yes, they are all boring fucking masturbaters.
:TristanBC: Well, fuck ‘em. Now, let’s forget about those bollocks and have some freaking fun!
:ZtoltBC: Heh… yes, let’s…

>Offer to lead him to a quiet corner.
:ZtoltBC: A quiet corner does sound, as you put it, fucking sweet.
:TristanBC: There is one right over there… err… I me-
:ZtoltBC: I heard where you pointed, do not worry. Now, have you already decided what to order?
:TristanBC: Honestly, I’m still a bit unsure what’s what on the menus you guys have here. I’ve found something that’s burger like and I’ve been sticking to that so far, so…
:ZtoltBC: I have prepared by looking up the menu and I found something that sounded rather delightful. Only problem is that it’s a bit heavy for lunch, so I was going to ask if you wished to share it with me?
:TristanBC: Well…
:ZtoltBC: Wait, your kind do eat live insects, correct? It said you were omnivores, which includes insects and shit, correct?
:TristanBC: Err… live ones?
:ZtoltBC: Also, I must ask, are you well, Tris?
:TristanBC: Huh? Why do you ask?
:ZtoltBC: Because your heart beat keeps going up and down quite a bit. It’s honestly a bit distracting.

There are some cultures back home that sometimes eat live animals, but I'm not from one of them. We mostly prefer food to be cooked by heat or chemically. It helps ease digestion, you see.

We certainly could eat insects...probably, but live might be a bit much.

Tell him you're a bit nervous, and worried about saying the wrong thing. I guess playing it cool doesn't work when he can hear your heartbeat.

A live insect... uh, normally you don't eat things alive. Generally it's cooked, but there are certain dishes where something is raw but still fresh so as to keep it from being contaminated. On the other hand there are some dishes which could be considered spoiled from an outside perspective, like cheese, and of course alcoholic beverages.
As for whether or not to eat the bug... well, so long as it doesn't move while you're eating it? Killing it right beforehand should be fine.

>Emotional rollercoaster
This is just something my hearth do. Is this too different from other species you've met?
I could try to get more zen but it would take weeks of practice.

It's a bad idea, but I'm open to new experiences.

No. 973929 ID: a38353

Assuming we don't have a heart condition we don't know about which is...possible but really unlikely, the heartbeat stuff is probably just nerves.
>>
No. 973935 ID: f8fa51

I guess we can, physiologically, but it's not usually considered normal. I've never really tried it, but I have to admit it doesn't sound particularly appealing. But I guess I can try it and order something else if it doesn't work out?

No. 973936 ID: ce39da

"Wait, are we going to be biting into the same thing? I know it isn't direct biting, but would it be safe to eat something your teeth touched? Would cutting this big bug in half first ruin it or something?"

Your species easily goes into states of excitement, which is why your heartbeat keeps speeding up. It means that you're enjoying his company.

As for live insects, well... you would rather eat your portion dead and cooked. But if they're able to do half and half that, you're willing to give it a try.

>Tell him you're a bit nervous, and worried about saying the wrong thing.
:ZtoltBC: And that makes your heart beat faster? Hmm… interesting.
:TristanBC: Is this too different from other species you've met?
:ZtoltBC: Considering most species doesn’t have one large muscle pumping blood around their whole body, then yes, it is a bit odd.
:TristanBC: You don’t have a heart?
:ZtoltBC: I have a lot of muscles to pump my blood around instead of just having one large fucker in the middle of my chest.
:TristanBC: So you’re practically heartless?
:ZtoltBC: *snrk* While my family is known for that, I like to think that I’m a bit different. Always have been more like gran gran than anyone else after all…
:TristanBC: I’m sure you have ten thousand hearts of gold in you.
:ZtoltBC: And you have a singular, huge one. Heh… must suck to go through heartbreak with that thing.
:TristanBC: Better one large heartbreak than a thousand small ones.
:ZtoltBC: Mmm… maybe you’re right… though it’s more like a hundred, but I digress…
>It means that you're enjoying his company.
:ZtoltBC: And I do enjoy yours as well, even if we haven’t spent that much time together. Don’t have a humongous fucking heart to show it off, though.
:TristanBC: Hey, no sweat. I got other ways to see if you’re having a good time, mate.
:ZtoltBC: Oh… really?
:TristanBC: For example, you scratch the shit out of the ground with your right hind leg every time I make you smile.
:ZtoltBC: I do? I… I haven’t actually notice that I do that…
>I guess playing it cool doesn't work when he can hear your heartbeat.
:ZtoltBC: Actually, I am quite impressed. That’s one of the reasons why I was so confused at first, as nervous people usually show it off in other ways.
:TristanBC: I guess it something you learn being part of a band. Can’t show people how nervous you are when you’re on stage, eh?
:ZtoltBC: I’d love to hear more about this band of yours, but that can wait until later. Right now we should focus on the food, as I’m fucking starving. So what do you say, Tris, share a meal?

>I've never really tried it, but I have to admit it doesn't sound particularly appealing.
:ZtoltBC: It doesn’t?
:TristanBC: We can eat insects, sure, but we usually don’t?
:ZtoltBC: Ah… I see…
>We mostly prefer food to be cooked by heat or chemically. It helps ease digestion, you see.
:ZtoltBC: Then the dish I had in mind might not be the most ideal one.
:TristanBC: I rather eat my portion dead and cooked so… unless you’re able to do a half and half…
:ZtoltBC: How do you half kill, half cooks something?
:TristanBC: Eh… necromancy?
:ZtoltBC: ...wait, you’re telling me that they have a level 5 [Translation Not Found!] with the spell [TNF!] just waiting in the kitchen in case someone wanted to [TNF!] and [TNF!] with their [TNF!]?
:TristanBC: Half of that didn’t translate well, but I’m guessing it was a roleplaying reference to fucking D&D or some such?
:ZtoltBC: It was indeed a nerd joke, yes… though it’s not from the game you mentioned… which translated to “Dinner and Dick”, which I’m pretty sure isn’t right?
:TristanBC: Err… no… no it is not…
:ZtoltBC: Maybe we can play a game of it sometime in the future? The tabletop game, not the freaking dinner and dick part. Geez…
:TristanBC: I guess that might be fun, yeah.

>Wait, are we going to be biting into the same thing?
:ZtoltBC: …no? We have utensils, don’t we? Which usually includes a knife?
>Would it be safe to eat something your teeth touched?
:ZtoltBC: I do not believe my venom have any effect if ingested, nor do I believe it will stay active for very long inside something I bite.
:TristanBC: That’s good to hear. Would suck if I poisoned myself by sharing a cupcake or something with you.
:ZtoltBC: Not that my venom is dangerous to your kind. If I understand it correctly, if I bit your hand it would only paralyze your hand for a little while and nothing more. Oh, and apparently it gives off a warm, pleasant feeling as well.
:TristanBC: Aw man, and here I was hoping to trip some balls…
:ZtoltBC: Heh, sorry man, but you need more powerful stuff for that.
>Well, so long as it doesn't move while you're eating it?
:ZtoltBC: You know, maybe I should order something else?
:TristanBC: That might be a good idea, yeah. Oh! How about this, we both order something individually and then we can share the shit between us? That way we can both get a taste of what the other like, eh?
:ZtoltBC: That does sound like a good idea, as long as you order something I can actually digest.
:TristanBC: Well… it says the burger has a Raolme option, so I guess that might work?
:ZtoltBC: Whatever you just said didn’t translate, but if it has a Raolme option, then it’s fine.
:TristanBC: Then let’s order!

It doesn’t take long after finding that quiet corner you promised him before a waiter approached the two of you. While ordering you make sure to specify that you want the Raolme option while Ztolt make sure that you can actually consume what he is ordering, which you can. Then the waiter scurries off, leaving the two of you alone again as well as leaving two tall glasses of… something drinkable that Ztolt ordered?

:ZtoltBC: Oh, yes, I almost forgot! I… um… got you something?
:TristanBC: Oh?
:ZtoltBC: Well… see… funny story… I was kind of in a hurry and… um...
:TristanBC: …and you… forgot something?
:ZtoltBC: I kind of forgot for a second that you weren’t a Raolme? A bit silly, yes?
:TristanBC: So, you got me a…?
:ZtoltBC: I got you some flowers?
:TristanBC: Flowers? Wait… aren’t those just… herbs?
:ZtoltBC: Herb flowers, yes! They… smell really good? There’s [TNF!], [TNF!] and [TNF!] as well as this new thing they have that I really liked called basilica. So yes, I… got you some herbs?
:TristanBC: …can’t say I’ve ever gotten a bouquet of herbs before.
:ZtoltBC: As I said, I was kind of going on auto pilot and… as this is my first date with an alien so… I’m sorry, I fucked up a bit?

Hmm, they look kindof nice anyway. Take a sniff, see how they smell.

Good thing you have that album ready! Tell him you weren't sure if there was going to be a gift exchange but you brought something just in case.
Ask what kind of music he likes!

No. 974018 ID: 9f00f4

Don't worry! I enjoy a good potpourri! It's very thoughtful of you. Just because my species uses sight to navigate doesn't mean we don't like a pleasant scent!

No, this is a fine gift. Normally, we go in for flowers for their colors, and herbs of all sorts are used for food... if that's basil in the bouquet, there'll be at least one familiar scent there!
>>
No. 974020 ID: 2aa5f0

>I’m sorry, I fucked up a bit?

tell him not to worry about it. It's the first date where neither of you really know the other all the well yet. Flowers, or herbs, are a good safe gift when you're not too sure what the other person likes. Guess this would also be a good time to give him a copy of one of your band cds/mp3/whatever you burned the damn thing onto. If he asked why you gave him a copy of our songs just tell him that you also felt that music was also a good safe choice and that you gave him some of your band's songs because you kinda wanted to make sure that none of the interments or anything that you guys play would be considered harmful or painful to his species. Would kinda make for a shitty night if you tried to be cute and play a song for him only to THEN find out that your instrument of choice hurts him.

"I hope they're safe; better to double-check with a bouquet made entirely out of stuff that 'fails to translate.' I do look forward to the smell if it's safe, though, if your own tastes are at all consistent."

No. 974023 ID: f8fa51

"That's actually really fucking romantic, mate. It's a bit unconventional, but I have a feeling this relationship is going to be a whole lot of that so it's actually kind of poetic in a way. Besides, they look nice, let's see how they fucking smell, yeah?"

"Actually, I got you something too. I didn't know if gifts were expected on the first date, so I was playing it safe. I brought you some of my band's music, maybe you could listen to it a bit later?"

Now that the food's been ordered, it's time to make small talk. He mentioned tabletop games, is that something he's done before?
>>
No. 974026 ID: a38353

pretty sure the one that actually translated is basil, so hey maybe we can cook with these at some point. it's a nice gift, and since he gave us one i suppose lets give him our music CD.

Tell him that you're impressed with how he can hear your heartbeat. You've got these really big ears (grab and wiggle them so he knows where they are on your body) and you can't hear something like that!

Then crack a joke on what he would've been sniffing if he was just a little shorter!

>Gift
Tell him not to worry about it and give him his gift. Tell him you also went on auto pilot as this is also your first date with an alien and you kinda forgot that he's got sensitive hearing, so you're not sure if your music will give him a headache if he listens to it. You're also not sure if he has a way to listen to the CD, since he might not own the device necessary to play it.

Looks like you're the one that might've fucked up a bit.

Gaaaayyyy!

Thank him for the gift and offer him the music record.

>Dinner and Dick
That is a very topical mistranslation. What other weird therms does this program come up with if you two start to recite abbreviations and acronyms to each other?

It seems like Tris would be good at poker. He's got a good poker face and can pick out peoples' tells, even in aliens.

Thank him for the bouquet and take a smell of it. Now would be the time to reveal that album. Tell him you wanted to see if he likes or can even listen to your music. In case you ever invite him to a concert or something.
