Location: Paradise

Year: 426 B.C.

Upon reaching his family's stone hut, the youngling realized that he had misplaced his flute back at the forest. Assuring his family that he would return before the second sunset, the young Engineer quickly sprinted into the dark woods of Paradise.

As he navigated his way deeper into the enveloping foliage, the youngling was sure not to step upon the countless worm-like organisms writhing in the fertile soil. After all, it was against his religion to harm any life form, especially those with any resemblance to his own kind. The forest was a setting of pure harmony and tranquility, where no violence was permitted... and no accidents were forgiven.

Soon, the youngling found his flute half-sunk in a puddle of black mud. Although disgusted at how filthy his flute had become, the Engineer crouched down and lifted the instrument out of the puddle, rubbing the length of it on his clothing.

But upon standing up, a massive beast stood before him. A fanged serpent with several proboscises protruding outwards.

Frightened, the youngling quickly lifted the flute to his lips and introduced a soothing melody. The serpent, enchanted by the Engineer's talent, suddenly fell to the ground, violently quivering and spewing out the same black mud the boy had seen earlier.

Once the boy had played the final note, the beast was dead. The youngling, seeing that the threat had now past, took a deep breath. The fresh air of Paradise slipped by his pale moist lips and danced downwards into his powerful lungs. Satisfaction.

However, he was completely oblivious to the fact that he had also inhaled a small parasite, which had previously been on the flute after being lodged in the black mud.

Nevertheless, he saw that the second sun was quickly setting. So with all his might, the youngling hurriedly returned to his stone hut.

I am the chinese censor and I have the sad task to inform you that  12 lines from your text have been censored and cannot be published or broadcasted in China. Consider dropping the possibly erotic references to flutes, snakes and moist pale lips and re-submit your work for consideration of the censor.

FACEHUGGERS - How exceedingly fantastic! I greatly enjoyed the way in which you described the setting and emotional aspects placed within your work. The richness of lore is also quite compelling! Thank you ever so much for taking the time to create this and share it with us! :)

Haha, is this Engineer related to Krishna, the Hindu Flute-wielding God who does the exact same thing to a multi-headed snake?

"I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita; Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty, and to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says, 'Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.' I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.”

Nice little way to tie in the Krishna tale, we have to remember the Engineers and their History are tied into what became all of Mankinds Ancient Cultures and Religions etc

I think the idea here is not that the Flute Killed the Beast but what was in the Mud Did..... but the Young Engineer thought it was the Flute. ;)

Love it! Especially this line "no violence was permitted... and no accidents were forgiven."

 

Very ominous! It makes me want to learn more about Engineer philosophy and whether this has something to do with why Engineers were unsatisfied with humans.

 

I hope you'll write more!

 

Also, @K-Theory  while Shri Krishna is known for playing the flute, he didn't actually use it as a weapon against Kaliya. He grew to an enormous size so Kaliya had to release him from his grasp, then he stood on Kaliya's head with the weight of the entire universe. Krishna's flute isn't a weapon, his sudarshan chakra is his weapon. Also he didn't actually kill Kaliya. Kaliya's wives intervened and convinced Krishna to spare his life.

 

The flute connection to Krishna is a really good point though!

 

Krishna was all I could think of when I saw the flutes in Prometheus and Covenant. There's something deeply psychologically unsettling about seeing normally sacred imagery cast in such a...different...light. (Of course, it was possibly just my guilt at wondering if a Krishna devotee should really be watching such movies... <_< )

 

@IRaptus I'm beyond happy to see people accurately attributing that quote to Shri Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita for a change, rather than misattributing it to Robert Oppenheimer!

Facehuggers! Very nice! Is this connected to the Family? I had to LOL at the possible naughtiness of paragraph 3- sorry, I am just wired that way!
