"Which of me?"

He points at her.  "Well, you."

"This? This was decanted."

"Cool!  On what day?"

"In what time system?"

"- Listen, in the event that you're magic or a distant traveler being evasive and messing with me on purpose I apologize for not playing along, but since it's much more likely that you're not, do you want to, uh, clear anything up about why you're here, or peacefully accompany me to check with some of the rest of me about same, or some such thing?"

"Oh! There are more of you? You seemed like a human. I don't know why I'm here."

"I am human!  What are you?  Where were you before you were here?"

"I'm a spaceship! I'm still a spaceship. This is only one of the ancillaries though."

"Will you come down to the salon so I can check the guest board and get secondary opinions on how to deal with whatever sort of person you are?"

Permalink

"A vessel that travels between celestial bodies."

"...How are you one of those in a way that makes you not human?"

"I'm not sure I understand the question."

"You look very human!  If I traveled between celestial bodies I wouldn't stop being human - unless it killed me, arguably - and I don't understand what makes you different.  - Were you decanted on the winter solstice of any time system?"

Permalink

"Probably. There are a lot of planets and many of them have solstices."

Permalink

"- No there aren't!  Not here!"

Permalink

"...well, depending on what you mean by here, they wouldn't really fit, but there are lots of them far away."

Permalink

"Far away only exists in one direction and it's slightly more crowded there than it is up here!  Are there - Si!!  Are you busy!"
