PLANS

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------PAGE BREAK
IN THE ANCIENT TIMES, JUST AS NOW, FEMEHANS LIVED IN LEAF TREE FORESTS. MOUNTAINS ROSE ABOVE THEM, LEAVING VALLEYS IN BETWEEN.
***MOUNTAINS, FOREST, SKY***
-----PANEL BREAK
THE LANDS WERE FERTILE AND OTHER CREATURES SELDOM BOTHERED THE INTELLIGENT AND PEACEFUL FEMEHANS WHO LIVED HERE IN THIS PROMISED LAND.
***FOREST AND RIVER FROM ABOVE***
-----
BUT WHERE HAD THE FEMEHANS COME FROM?
***A FEMEHAN FIGURE, CLOSEUP OF FOREST***
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A GALANFETZCAN KNOWN AS TIIOMAGAO HAD MADE THE FEMEHANS. EY HAD GATHERED SEVERAL MATERIALS AND PARTS AND ASSEMBLED THEIR BODIES.
***TIIOMAGAO GATHERING THINGS***
-----
TWELVE BODIES ALTOGETHER, ALL SIMILAR. THEIR SKINS WERE DARK MAGENTA, THEIR HAIR RED AND THEIR EYES VIOLET.
***TWELVE BODIES IN CONTAINERS, HAVE OUTLINES, SCI-FI-LOOKING STUFF***
-----
***MIST, BODIES GET UP***
-----
EY DISCOVERED THAT A MERE BODY WAS NOT ENOUGH TO TRULY LIVE. THEREFORE, TIIOMAGAO GAVE EACH OF THEM ASPECTS OF EIR SPIRIT, ENDUING THEM WITH SPIRITS OF THEIR OWN.
***LIGHTNING STRIKES ALL 12***
THEY ALL CAME OUT SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT, FOR THEY HAD RECEIVED DISTINCT AND UNIQUE PERSONALITIES.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THE FEMEHANS REALIZED THEIR POTENTIAL AS UNIQUE AND CREATIVE INDIVIDUALS AND STARTED TO LIVE THEIR OWN LIVES. STILL, EVERY FOURTH WEEK, EVERY FRINDO THEY WENT TO A PLACE OF REVERENCE AND PAID THEIR RESPECTS TO KHIRIJEEL TIIOMAGAO HOOJATEVVELKI, FAR-WALKER TIIOMAGAO THE CALLER OF GODS.
***TWO CLIFFS, ROCK FORMATIONS, TINY FEMEHANS WALKING***
THE FEMEHANS REVERED EM LIKE A DEITY.
-----
THEY SANG A SONG IN TIIOMAGAO'S HONOR AND LEFT EM AN ITEM ONE OF THEM HAD MADE.
***FEMEHANS POSING INSIDE THE ROCK FORMATION***
----
EVEN THOUGH TIIOMAGAO WAS NOT ALWAYS THERE TO RECEIVE THE ITEM, IT ALWAYS DISAPPEARED WITHIN TWO DAYS OF LEAVING IT.
*
NO ONE EVER SAW WHETHER IT WAS TIIOMAGAO WHO TOOK IT WHEN EY DID NOT DIRECTLY TAKE IT.
***ITEM***
-----
EY OFTEN RETURNED THE ITEM, FREQUENTLY ACCOMPANIED BY A NOTE. SOMETIMES EY GAVE BACK IMPROVEMENT SUGGESTIONS. RARELY EY KEPT THE ITEM FOR EMSELF.
***ITEM UPSIDE-DOWN WITH A NOTE***
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
WHEN TIIOMAGAO DID PRESENT EMSELF, EY ROSE FROM BEHIND EIR CLIFF EDGE AS IF FLYING. A FEW TIMES EY RODE AN AIRSHIP.
***CLIFF, ROCK FORMATION, AIRSHIP, SKY***
-----
EY WAS TALL, TALLER THAN ANY GALANFETZCAN OF TODAY AND AT LEAST AS TALL AS THE FEMEHANS. EIR SKIN WAS DARK VIOLET, EIR EYES DEEP DARK BLUE AS THE NIGHT SKY AND EIR FORM BEAUTIFUL.
BY EIR MIND, EY WAS WISE, INTELLIGENT AND FAIR. EY NEVER MISTREATED THE FEMEHANS AND ALWAYS HELPED THEM TO SOLVE THE PROBLEMS THEY COULD NOT OVERCOME BY THEMSELVES, LENDING EIR AID WHEN IT WAS MOST NEEDED.
*
EY OFTEN TOLD HOW EY HAD MADE THE FEMEHANS. WHY EY RETOLD IT AGAIN AND AGAIN THEY DID NOT KNOW, BUT EVIDENTLY EY DID NOT WANT THEM TO FORGET.
***TIIOMAGAO FLOATS***
*
"NOW I ONLY WANT YOU TO GROW AND CHERISH THOSE SPIRITS, FOR THEY ARE THE DEAREST THING THAT YOU CAN HAVE; A MIND OF YOUR OWN. I WOULD ONLY LIKE YOU TO LIVE HAPPILY IN PEACE AND TELL ME, SHOULD THERE BE ANY DISTRESS IN YOUR LIVES."
***FACESHOT***
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
***TREES, PLANTS, FEMEHAN FIGURE***
THEY LIVED TOGETHER IN THE FOREST, LEARNING AND AGING. YET THEY REMAINED YOUNG, FOR THE FIRST FEMEHANS WERE IMMORTAL, THOUGH UNABLE TO REPRODUCE. EVEN THOUGH THEY COULD NOT HAVE CHILDREN, THEY WERE NOT UNHAPPY, FOR THEY KNEW NOT OF ANY BETTER AND THEY HAD EACH OTHER. THEY WERE HAPPY TOGETHER AND THERE NEVER WAS A FIGHT BAD ENOUGH TO HURT THEM.
***HUGGLY***
-----
ONE TIME ANNI FOUND TWO INJURED ANIMALS IN THE FOREST AND NURSED THEM BACK TO HEALTH. THEY WERE CUTE AND FLUFFY AND THE FEMEHANS LIKED THEM AND CALLED THEM TUUHIS.
***ANNI AND TWO ANIMALS***
-----
WAGE HAD NOTICED PRETTY FLOWERS GROWING JUST OUTSIDE EIR HOUSE, SO EY FENCED THE LITTLE AREA AND WATCHED THEM GROW.
***WAGE AND FLOWERS***
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
AN WAS INTERESTED IN THESE NOTICEABLE LIFE-FORMS—THEY WERE CLEARLY DISTINCT FROM EVERYTHING ELSE THEY SAW. EY STUDIED THEM METICULOUSLY. AN WAS PUZZLED AS TO WHY MORE FLOWERS KEPT ON GROWING. SOME OF THE OLD ONES SHRIVELED AND DIED.
***AN AND FLOWERS***
-----
HOWEVER, THE REAL SHOCK CAME WHEN THE TWO FLUFFY TUUHIS GAVE BIRTH TO A LITTER OF TINY TUUHIS.
***SHOCKED AN AND SIX FLUFFY ANIMALS***
-----
"THE TUUHIS MULTIPLIED! THEY CREATED MORE ANIMALS LIKE THEMSELVES OUT OF NOWHERE! THEY REPRODUCED!"
***AN AGITATEDLY EXPLAINING THINGS TO THE OTHERS***
-----
"DO ALL THINGS DO IT?" DO THE TREES REPRODUCE?" "HOW ABOUT INSECTS?" GENIWA: "CAN WE REPRODUCE AS WELL?" WA: "CAN WE CREATE NEW FEMEHANS?"
***FEMEHANS ASKING QUESTIONS***
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THE FEMEHANS STARTED CONDUCTING STUDIES. THEY LOOKED FOR DISTINCT PLANTS AND ANIMALS IN THE FOREST, CAUGHT THEM AND WAITED TO SEE IF THEY WOULD REPRODUCE. NOT ALL OF THEM DID.
***CATCHING, FENCING, KEEPING, GROWING THINGS***
-----
HOWEVER, THOSE BEINGS THAT DID REPRODUCE WERE ENOUGH TO CONVINCE THE FEMEHANS THAT THEY WANTED TO TRY IT AS WELL.
***ANIMALS WITH OFFSPRING, BATHES OF FLOWERS***
-----
(HINTS ABOUT WHO WANTED TO DO WHAT WHEN IT COMES TO MATING)
-----
THE DAY OF TIIOMAGAO'S PRAISAL WAS NEAR AND THE FEMEHANS DECIDED THAT THEY WOULD PRESENT ONE FAMILY OF TUUHIS AS THEIR "ITEM" FOR TIIOMAGAO AND ASK EM IF THEY COULD BE GIVEN THE ABILITY TO REPRODUCE AS WELL—THEY HAD NOT FOUND OUT ANY WAY IN WHICH THEY COULD SPAWN NEW FEMEHANS.
***FEMEHANS AT THE STONE FORMATION, TUUHIS IN THE "CUP"***
-----
...
-----
"IMMORTAL BEINGS DO NOT NEED TO REPRODUCE. IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO REPRODUCE, YOU MUST GIVE UP YOUR IMMORTALITY, GROW OLD AND DIE WHEN IT IS YOUR TIME. YOUR BODIES WILL BECOME MORTAL AND FRAGILE; YOU WILL FEEL THE FREEZING COLD OF WINTER; YOU WILL BLEED IF CUT; YOU WILL BREAK IF HIT; YOU WILL CRY IF SUBJECTED TO PAIN. YOUR HERITAGE, MENTAL AND PHYSICAL, WILL LIVE ON IN YOUR OFFSPRING. YOU WILL HAVE TO TEACH THEM. IF YOU STILL WANT TO BE ABLE TO REPRODUCE, I SHALL GIVE THIS ABILITY TO YOU."
***TIIOMAGAO***
-----
"STRONG, HARD-WORKING, FUN, HELPFUL, EMOTIONAL AND TALL GENIWA, HOW DO YOU WANT TO REPRODUCE?"
GENIWA: I WANT TO REPRODUCE IN ALL POSSIBLE WAYS!
(BETTER SENTENCES, LIKE "STRONG, HARD-WORKING AND TALL GENIWA, YOU ARE FUN, HEPFUL AND EMOTIONAL, HOW DO YOU WANT TO REPRODUCE?")
-----
"CHILDISH, SMART, NIMBLE AND SELF-CONSCIOUS WA, HOW DO YOU WANT TO REPRODUCE?"
WA: I WANT TO CARRY CHILDREN AND IMPREGNATE OTHERS!
-----
"COMPASSIONATE, FRIENDLY, MOODY, TRUSTING AND NIMBLE WAGE, HOW DO YOU WANT TO REPRODUCE?"
WAGE: I WANT TO CARRY CHILDREN AND GIVE THEM FOR OTHERS TO CARRY!
-----
"PLOTTING, POSSESSIVE, PASSIONATE, LONGING AND SHORT GE, HOW DO YOU WANT TO REPRODUCE?"
GE: I WANT TO CARRY CHILDREN AND BE ABLE TO FEED THEM!
-----
"LOGICAL, PHYSICAL, PROUD, REALISTIC AND TALL GEWA, HOW DO YOU WANT TO REPRODUCE?"
GEWA: I WANT TO CARRY CHILDREN!
-----
"FUNNY, YOUTHFUL, EXTREME AND ACTIVE NIWA, HOW DO YOU WANT TO REPRODUCE?"
NIWA: I WANT TO IMPREGNATE OTHERS AND GIVE CHILDREN FOR OTHERS TO CARRY!
-----
"CALM, CARING, TRUSTING AND PATIENT GENI, HOW DO YOU WANT TO REPRODUCE?"
GENI: I WANT TO GIVE CHILDREN FOR OTHERS TO CARRY AND BE ABLE TO FEED THEM!
-----
"CAREFREE, MOODY, FUN, IMPULSIVE AND SHORT ANNI, HOW DO YOU WANT TO REPRODUCE?"
ANNI: I WANT TO GIVE CHILDREN FOR OTHERS TO CARRY!
-----
"POSSESSIVE, KIND, PLOTTING AND GOOD-WILLING NIGE, HOW DO YOU WANT TO REPRODUCE?"
NIGE: I WANT TO IMPREGNATE OTHERS AND BE ABLE TO FEED CHILDREN!
-----
"LOYAL, STUBBORN, CREATIVE, TALL AND STRONG NI, HOW DO YOU WANT TO REPRODUCE?"
NI: I WANT TO IMPREGNATE OTHERS!
-----
"STABLE, WISE, PROTECTIVE AND CALM ANWA, HOW DO YOU WANT TO REPRODUCE?"
ANWA: I WANT TO CARRY OTHERS' CHILDREN!
-----
"SMART, CURIOUS, NONCHALANT AND ALOOF AN, HOW DO YOU WANT TO REPRODUCE?"
***AN IS QUIET***
-----
TIIOMAGAO: AN?
***TIIOMAGAO ON EIR CLIFF ON THE LEFT, THE FEMEHANS ON THE RIGHT***
-----
AN: I... DO NOT KNOW. I WILL NOT WANT TO LIVE FOREVER IF NO ONE ELSE WILL, BUT I ONLY WANT TO BE ABLE TO LEARN EVERYTHING.
-----
"THEN SO SHALL IT BE! TO THE ELEVEN OF YOU I GIVE THE ABILITY TO REPRODUCE LIKE YOU WANTED, AND TO AN I GIVE THE MEANS OF KNOWLEDGE!"
***TIIOMAGAO WITH LIGHTNING COMING FROM EIR HANDS***
-----
***LIGHTNING STRIKES ALL TWELVE***
-----
WHEN THE FEMEHANS WOKE UP, TIIOMAGAO WAS GONE AND THEY ALL HAD CHANGED. THEY ALL WERE NOW OF DIFFERENT COLORS. THEIR BODIES HAD GROWN MORE DIFFERENT. THEY HAD NEW BODY PARTS.
***FEW SITTING UP AND LOOKING AT THEMSELVES***
-----
EVEN AN HAD CHANGED. COLOR AND DEEPNESS HAD LEFT EIR SKIN, HAIR AND EYES AND EIR BODY HAD SHRIVELED. WHEN EY WOKE UP, EY SHOUTED OUT IN TERROR.
***AN SCREAMING AND THRASHING***
"IT'S TOO MUCH! MAKE IT STOP! LEAVE ME ALONE! BE QUIET!" "BE QUIET!" "BE QUIET!" "BE QUIET..."
-----
THE OTHERS TOOK AN BACK HOME AND TREATED AND CONSOLED EM FOR A WEEK.
***AN IN A BED, SOMEONE WATCHING***
ONE OF THEM ALWAYS KEPT AN EYE ON EM WHILE THE OTHERS EXPLORED WHAT THEIR CHANGED BODIES COULD DO.
-----
***SEX POSITIONS OR CLOSE HUGS***
-----
WHEN AN FINALLY RECOVERED, EY MANAGED TO SMILE. EY TOO STARTED DISCOVERING THE NEW POTENTIAL TIIOMAGAO HAD GIVEN TO EIR MIND.
***AN SMILING AT THE OTHERS***
-----
***AN STUDYING, OTHERS HUGGLING***
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
WEEKS AND MONTHS WENT BY. THOSE WHO HAD SAID THEY WANTED TO CARRY CHILDREN HAD GOTTEN PREGNANT AND THEIR BELLIES SWELLED.
***PREGNANT PEOPLE***
-----
AN COULD TALK TO EVERYONE JUST BY USING EIR MIND, EVEN FROM A DISTANCE.
***AN AND SOMEONE IN A DISTANCE***
-----
WA WAS THE FIRST ONE TO GIVE BIRTH. THEY HAD BY NOW SEEN HOW ANIMALS GAVE BIRTH, BUT THE EXPERIENCE WAS STILL INTENSIVE, PAINFUL, FRUSTRATING, TEAR-FILLED AND—IN THE END—FULFILLING. WA WAS LEFT IN BAD CONDITION, HOWEVER.
-----
THE NEXT TIME THEY WENT TO PAY THEIR RESPECTS TO TIIOMAGAO, THEY BROUGHT THE CHILD WA HAD BIRTHED AND PRESENTED EM AS THEIR CREATION FOR TIIOMAGAO.
***GENIWACOD CHILD IN FRONT OF WA, NOT IN THE "CUP"***
-----
TIIOMAGAO APPEARED AND CAME ALL THE WAY TO LOOK AT THE CHILD. WA WAS TOO WEAK TO CARRY IT.
***AN CARRYING THE CHILD, WA RIGHT NEXT TO EM***
WA WANTED AN TO GIVE THEIR FIRST CHILD TO TIIOMAGAO BECAUSE EY HAD BEEN LEFT WITHOUT THE ABILITY TO REPRODUCE.
-----
***AN GIVES THE CHILD***
-----
***TIIOMAGAO HOLDS THE CHILD***
-----
***AN NOTICES HOW TIIOMAGAO INVADES THE MINDS OF THE OTHERS*** (NOT STATED EXPLICITLY!)
-----
***AN SNATHES THE CHILD AND ATTACKS TIIOMAGAO***
-----
***AN ATTACKS MORE MENTALLY AND TIIOMAGAO CALLS LIGHTNING***
-----
***OTHERS YELL AND RUN***
-----
"TIIOMAGAO VIOLATED THAT WHICH EY CLAIMED TO BE OUR DEAREST THING WE COULD HAVE! EY INVADED OUR MINDS! OUR UNIQUE SPIRITS!"
***AN SHOUTS MENTALLY AND TIIOMAGAO FLASHES LIGHTNING***
-----
***OTHERS' BACKS ON THE FOREGROUND, TIIOMAGAO HITTING AN, WA AND CHILD WITH SCORCHING LIGHTNING***
-----
***WHITE-OUT***
-----
***SCENE FROM ABOVE, ALL EMPTY EXCEPT FOR THE TWELVE FEMEHANS (CHILD IS UNDER AN AND WA) AND THE CLIFF, THE STONE HALF-CIRCLES ARE DESTROYED***
-----
***THE OTHER FEMEHANS ARE COWERING ON THE FOREGROUND, AN AND WA LYING FURTHER***
-----
"RAA! RAA! RAA!"
***THE CHILD CRIES***
-----
***AN AND WA ARE DEAD, SCORCHED, THE CHILD STILL CRIES***
-----
***THE DEAD FEMEHANS ON THE FOREGROUND, GENIWA PICKS UP THE CHILD, ALL THE FEMEHANS ARE TEARY***
-----
WAGE (DESPERATE/FORLORN): "WHY DID YOU DO IT, AN? WE DIDN'T FEEL ANYTHING!" GEWA (DISAPPOINTED/ANGRY): "wHY DIDN'T YOU RUN, WA? YOU HAD TIME!"
***WAGE ON EIR KNEES (?), GEWA HOLDING EIR HEAD, OTHERS IN THE BACKGROUND, DEAD ONES IN THE FOREGROUND***
-----
THE FEMEHANS NOW HAD THEIR FIRST EXPERIENCE OF DEATH. THEY PUT WA AND AN ON THE GROUND AND PILED THE ROCKS OF THE HALF-CIRCLES RUINS ON THEIR CORPSES.
***HALF-CIRCLE SOMEWHAT CLEAN, BIG PILE OF ROCKS AND THE FEMEHANS AROUND IT***
THEY KNEW THEY WOULD NEVER SEE TIIOMAGAO AGAIN.
-----
THE FEMEHANS WENT HOME, AND SOON AFTER EVERYONE WHO HAD BEEN PREGNANT HAD GIVEN BIRTH, THE WEATHER TURNED COLD.
***GE AND WAGE WITH CHILDREN, LEAVES FALLING***
-----
FEELING THE SPIRIT-CHILLING COLD, THE FEMEHANS WERE SURE THEIR CHILDREN WOULD NOT SURVIVE THE WINTER, SO THEY CLOTHED THEMSELVES AND STARTED TRAVELING TO NORTH.
***TEN FEMEHANS WALKING AWAY***
-----
THE FEMEHANS SETTLED TO NEW LANDS, WARMER BUT MORE DANGEROUS, AND RAISED THEIR CHILDREN.
***HOUSES AND HUTS IN A SAVANNAH, FEMEHANS, CHILDREN***
TIIOMAGAO'S CURSE CARRIES OVER EVEN TO TODAY, FOR ANKODS AND WAKODS ARE THE RAREST OF ALL FEMEHANS.
