CCSF 2012 Day 2: A Day at the Beach


Written by Jessica as Part of the Shee Journey Series

It was actually a lucky break that my first discovery was from the Ettin species: Shee lore held that they were excellent servants, and I was able to put that idea to the test immediately. It was preposterous to imagine anyone else brewing my tea, however. My assistants had a decidedly uneasy appearance when we locked the Ettins away. Their sad eyes gave me a twinge of guilt, yet the journey had only just begun. A much more pressing concern was the speed at which the spacecraft was traveling at. Suffice to say I was unable to enjoy the same amount of tea and biscuits as I had on solid ground. Fortunately, the next planet on the star map was described as an ideal vacation spot. Although I would never actually get near the surface, it was a comforting thought to think of solid ground again.

The initial scans proved rather disconcerting: This was a vastly aquatic world, with a rather sandy atmosphere. The exploration vessel took an uncharacteristic spill into a large sand barrier just beyond the water's surface. No serious damage was done, but I sent a rather strongly worded report back to the Shee Intergalactic Research Institute. I could only hope that the actual spacecraft was free from this sort of miscalculation. My assistants were more curious than worried: They seemed to be treating this mission as a fun excursion, rather than a serious journey. A stern look was all I could manage. More than ever, I needed them focused.

We anxiously awaited the return of the vessel, which reported that it had picked up a strange being that was not quite Norn, Grendel, nor Ettin. I expected to see some sort of hybrid when the portal opened. Instead, I found myself greeted with a pile of sand. I put the Ettins from the previous day to work, with my assistants managing the situation. In the end, I found sand cascading from every crease in my clothing. Another strongly worded report found its way back home. This certainly was not a Shee creation... The banana solidified that fact.

From Jessica: "Welcome to the second day of the CCSF 2012! Our theme of the day is all about beaches, and some of the ways to incorporate them in a Creatures world. Although C1, C2, and C3/DS don't exactly have true beaches, they can certainly be found throughout the series! Whether you're getting ready for summer or still bidding it farewell, today's releases should bring everything but the sand to your computer!"

SpringRain: Very coincidental, indeed! You must have been channeling the Shee's journey somehow. Ha ha!
