This is my favorite Night Vale tweet.
I tried a 2-D printer once, and the paper jammed.
So now I just painstakingly re-create my paper copies by hand, like a medieval monk.
i tried using paper, but the edges crumpled
so now i just chisel my commandments into stone, like old testament god
I tried using stone, but it cracked and broke.
Now I just scream everything at passersby, hoping they’ll remember what I said so I can ask them about it when I need it.
I tried shouting things at passersby but they ignored me.
Now I emit allohormones in a gypsobelum that bonds selectively with the recipient’s hemolymph to reconfigure their bursa copulax into a copulatory canal. I can only say one thing, “I want to mate with you,” but really, what else ever needs to be said?
Being as an Ocean
The most prominent special occasion is when Valkyrea are reborn. The ceremony held prior to bursting into flames would be an excellent time for Quafrea to crown the phoenix of the party. Valkyrea are usually ill (which is what causes a rebirth, most often) and not in their most beautiful state, maybe a flower crown would make them feel pretty. I could also see it being symbolic for either their delicate state before or a new phase blooming to life after.
Come here Aterfer, Quafrea has a present for you.
