For a project in my Language Arts class, we had to write about an ideal world for us and this is what I came up with. Enjoy! Plus, there’s a puzzle at the end.
Voice 1: Begin.
Okay. Phew. My name is . In your language, that would be Ben. My planet’s name is . I’m not even going to try translating that into this weird language. On my planet, things are a bit different. First off, it’s a dwarf planet. Now, I know this isn’t how things work here but where I live, the size of your planet determines part of your size. So yeah, we’re kinda dwarfs. Compared to you giants that is. Also we have contact with other civilizations in the universe. You earthlings are so undeveloped.
We have skiing on too. But it’s a bit different. We have water snow like you guys, but our snow has a natural chemical. It gives the snow a certain smell of a good food or drink. We figured out how to control it, so now you can control the (Scent) . Because of that, the ski place takes requests. Personally, I like Hot Chocolate Day.
We look different from you in other ways too. Our skin is , (blue) but varies in shade. Plus, we have bright orange horns. As I mentioned before, we’re dwarfs. We don’t have belly buttons. That might seem random, but it’s true. And our hair shows our emotions. You think you have bad hair days? Ha! We sound similar, but really we all look different.
Our currency and government are… interesting. You may call it an anarchy here, but home on , it’s just normal. There is nothing to fight about because we don’t have a currency. We either trade, do favors, or give stuff out for free. Plus, you can’t rob a bank if one doesn’t exist.
Our houses are kinda like this type of house you have in a book called The Hobo. Or was it The Hobbit? Anyways, we take small hills and dig open-air tunnels into houses. They are comfy and they have what we need.
Our planet itself seems like it’s shouting, “I am bright. I am colorful. I am beautiful. Look at me.” During the day, our planet looks pretty much like earth, except for our mountains, which are a blue-purple ombre. At night though.. that’s when things get fun. Our grass glows bioluminescent in blue and many other colors. It’s breathtaking. Our sky at night is strange. Our atmosphere bends light, so at night the sky is a sparkling black dome in the sky.
Our technology is.. different than yours. You would classify it as low-tech, but really it’s much more advanced. You all are very insecure creatures you know. You call them books, we call them . Now, I know what you’re thinking. “Books? Sure they’re cool, but really? Naw. That’s not tech.” Your feeble human minds can’t comprehend,but that’s what makes our planet the humble empire it is today.
We don’t have cars, but what we have is even better. We have wing-rockets. On our shoes. Well, we don’t really have shoes, we have permanent blobs shaped like shoes put on our feet and we can modify their appearance. By the way, there’s a reason we cover our feet. Anyways, wing-rocket is the most common. Personally, I like hover-shield. Don’t. Ask. Trust me, it’s for the better.
Hmm, what else? Okay we have two moons, one purple, one blue. Don’t ask, (again), but it involved spray paint and a wayward earthling. Ugh. We have pets, which you would probably call cats and dogs but… you guessed it, they’re different. There’s so much that I can’t even begin to describe, so I’ll leave it to your imagination.
That’s all, Mr. CIA agent. Could you please let me go home now? I really need to feed my . Sorry, my dog. Sir? What are you do-MMMPPHHHHH!MMPH-*gasp*HELLPPP-MMMMMPH- *crickets*
Voice 1: Hmmph.
By the way, the letters needed to translate the name of Ben’s planet are available. HINT: it’s backwards and it’s kind of random. You probably won’t understand it unless you go to my school.
