Upon Vestia: Chapter Twenty-Nine

Post by flying_purple_monkfish on Wed Mar 21, 2018 6:47 pm

First topic message reminder :

Ivor was pretty thankful for Tala's quiet thoughts, if her unshielded thoughts were anything like her speaking voice, he'd have had a headache already.
He nodded slowly.

Nova nodded "Yes, I was hatched before my family was taken. Luckily I was old enough then to understand and learn from them before we were separated. Having the mind link is helpful in choosing who is to take over the positions, and who just wants to be farmers or guards."

James smiled. "You guys are kinda like a hive mind, that must make it a lot easier to cooperate and pick new staff. I guess you fight less cause of that?"
He smiled a bit, "If Swarm goes along on the Silver Devil, you should compare notes on being telepathically linked. You guys are kinda similar that way." He hoped calling the dragons a hive mind wasn't offensive.

Nova chuckled then shrugged "In a way, I guess we are, though we don't rely on it normally. Or we didn't. Usually it's only the King or Queen that can speak to anyone, those lower must know the ones they are speaking to, or be introduced through a third that knows both if they cannot meet in person. That is one way so many were taken, no one could hear them, or the ones who could were too far away to help." That was sad to think about, but it was truth.

James nodded. "Ah, I guess that does make sense. Starr did mention having stronger telepathy than the rest of the dragons." He frowned, that really did stink to imagine star dragons able to hear their friends being captured and enslaved, or to not know at all until it was too late. "Dang, that must've been awful to hear, and not be able to help."

Nova nodded and dipped her head. "Yes, it was demoralizing to hear, then to know they were coming to get you next." She shook her head and took a deep breath. That was not a happy thing to remember. "Queen Starr was lucky that she hadn't developed enough to hear them all, though her parents heard. They were trying to get allies to help them, that was how they were taken. The slavers pretended to be allies until they reached the planet, then attacked to get the last of us they could."

James shuddered. "That's awful. It's just mind boggling how anyone can be that greedy and cruel. I mean, sure, obviously star dragons have some neat skills, but betraying and hunting people like that is just so evil." He shook his head, "I guess most of the people who captured you guys must be dead by now, or I'd suggest hunting them all down for vengeance."

"I'm sure the short-lived ones are." Nova said. "It was cruel, but it is our past now and we can finally work on fixing things now."

"And maybe somewhere along the way you guys can get revenge on any slavers left alive," James said. He had some people he'd like to hurt someday for what they'd done. Maybe not kill, but punch a couple times in the face at least. "I'm glad you guys are getting the chance to rebuild after all this time. I hope I get to see your new homeworld someday, I'm sure it'll be incredible."

"I am sure that will happen to some, though Starr doesn't want us to be cruel in retaliation." Nova said then shrugged "We can kill them, just not torture them. She doesn't want us to become like they are."

James sighed, then nodded. "She's probably right. Vengeance sounds awesome, but the books I've read usually end with it being messy and just continuing the problem." He smiled a bit. "Killing the people who hurt you outright guarantees they won't hurt you again at least."

Nova nodded then shrugged "Unless by doing so we create hate in a family member that then takes over trying to hurt us." It could be a vicious cycle after all.

"Eh, as long as the bad guy could possibly be a threat to you, I'm sure their families would understand. I mean, hundreds of years of slavery is kind of a good reason for you guys to want to dispose of someone, right? I wouldn't want to kill the guys who created me, but I'd totally stand back and let any android who wanted to kill our creators. Some things are just unforgivable, you know?" James said.

Nova nodded then shrugged a little "True enough, they wouldn't have a valid reason to be mad, but then again, when do emotions care about valid reasons? Add to that those who want to be just like the one killed because it is how they were raised..." She just shook her head at that instead of continuing.

James sighed. "Yeah, you're right." He shook his head, "Some people were just raised wrong, and there's not much we can do to fix that."
He smiled a little, "But hey, you're free now, so things are looking up at least."

"Yes, that is good." Nova agreed with a nod. It was good to be free, even if the others weren't yet.

James smiled at her. "We should start, like, a former slaves support group or something. There are a lot of us here now."

"Yeah, I kind of meant the star dragons here in general. And all the androids we've picked up, and everyone else who's been through all that slavery crap," James said. "It'd be neat to start some sort of support network thing, some of them might really benefit from it."

"Oh, I see." James smiled at Nova. "Well when you come back, maybe you can come join in. If there's actually any interest in a support group, which I'm not sure there will be." He looked amused. "I can't imagine my newer brother having any interest in talking to anyone, but you never know about the others."

Nova nodded and smiled a little "Some like to talk to feel better, others just want to forget." Hey, at least if he did take this track, he could become like a counselor and not have to see blood.

"Yeah," James nodded. "I mean they went through some sucky stuff, who can blame them for not wanting to think about it? I dunno about your people, but some of mine are just so confused though. They never expected freedom, so being here is kinda baffling to them."

James smiled softly. "You should make sure you have something to entertain yourself with for the trip," he said suddenly. "The Silver Devil crew are nice, but it gets boring on that ship, believe me. Normally I entertain myself by harassing Esk and singing suggestive songs, but that isn't your style, I'm guessing."
