Every kid wants candy and lies, right?

    I wonder if they are a race without a home because they’re an insufferable bag of violent douche canoes whose only redeeming feature is their cuteness. I think Emily is going to go into the toy business soon: Pound Puppies.

      Those space puppies are not only evil, but also clueless.

      Not really. It depends entirely on what your biology requires for it to sense a difference in your environment. On Earth, most sensing requires movement, which is why we instinctively freeze when confronted with danger. If you don’t move, the predator won’t see you.

      So you have alien predators on an alien planet trying to learn on the fly how to detect their prey (are they colorblind, by chance?) against a species that they are still learning may not be as limited as they assumed. Example: the devil dog is looking in a box/container that doesn’t appear to be large enough to hold Aitana. It might be that its species can do some folding stuff that lets it shrink down in size. This type of “projection” immediately makes the task of finding her much, much more difficult.

    It’s been my finding (through the work of others, I do admit) that the welcome mat at death’s door says ‘SURPRISE!’ And sometimes fine print you won’t have time to read. Exeunt omnes.
