She is now a silly-looking talking fish! With lungs instead of gills of course. (Luckily the language she'd picked doesn't need lips.)

The dubbers are stumped for a second while the grey boy produces gibberish increasingly slowly trying to give them time; the teacher called "Four, three, two, one, blurt," and the green dubbing the grey says, "um, ah, uhm, oh no, you aren't supposed to do that on... odd-numbered days!" and the one dubbing Bright says "oh no! I thought it was the fourth!".

Bounce back to human!

"If you can't swim in Amentan form we'll need to stop them from filling the pool!"

"But we were thrown in here with parachutes! There's no ladder!"

"If there's no ladder... we'll just have to dig one!"

And the teacher wraps the scene and calls up another group, applauding their performance.

That was fun!

The other group does a scene about a pig farm. And that is it for this drama class. They have a recess, during which Bright is invited to play hide and seek. Next is literature! The teacher postpones their usual lesson on a section of a book Bright hasn't read so instead they read poetry aloud to each other and talk about how the poems do what they're doing.

Permalink

This is kind of confusing. Being magically fluent in the language doesn't make her good at poetry. But she kind of likes learning about the poets.

Permalink

The teacher does look at her occasionally to see if it looks like she wants to say something but does not expect it of her. The poets have blurbs in the book but mostly the class is talking about the meter and rhyme and metaphors.

Permalink

The metaphors are kind of neat, especially where they're different from common American human ones.

Permalink

They're super different! For example, everything to do with seasons is specific to Amentan season feelings, which apparently aren't solely limited to spring - this poet is talking about winter and dancing like they're inherently connected.

Permalink

That's really weird! (She super doesn't get why or how they're connected.)

Permalink

"Do shoggoths not dance?" wonders one of the purple kids.

Permalink

"We do, but I don't get why winter? Like, I'm really sleepy when it's winter, not feeling like dancing."

Permalink

"Well, we don't hibernate," says a grey.

"Dancing warms you up!" says an orange.

Permalink

"Huh." She thinks maybe species with muscles do get warmer when using them... "I didn't know it was that much?"

Permalink

"I don't actually know why winter's so good for dancing," says the literature teacher, "but it doesn't seem like something that ought to be true of every kind of person in the galaxy."

Permalink

She nods and goes back to listening to poetry.

Permalink

And eventually the class wraps, and all the students file out past their teachers and thank them for teaching them as seems to be this school's custom, and Bright can rejoin her escort.

Permalink

She does the thanking too!

Are there more things or is it going home time?

Permalink

It's going home time!

Permalink

Oh good. She's had fun but she's getting tired.

Permalink

That is a normal way to feel after school. Would she like to comment for the camera on her school opinions while it's fresh or rest a bit first?

Permalink

She can comment now!

Amentan schools are really nice. It's weirdly different than what she's used to, so it'll be a fun experiment. Still, she likes meeting lots of new people the best!

"We'll put together the video once you've seen the other two."

"Okay!"
