Narus' Quest by Toastline
Dis.png

An alien recieves a ball in the mail, which immediately starts talking to him. The ball, which is some kind of manifestation of Quest, can apparently do anything as long as it has enough "impulse weight" from suggesters. It features several races of aliens with imaginative biologies and social structures and can be anywhere from vastly intriguing to vastly amusing. By Toastline.

Synopsis

Narus, recently having started a mandatory vacation, receives a strange grey ball with glowing patterns on it. Voices speak to him through it. He takes it to his tinker friend Anciu, who determines that it is probably an hyperdimensional object of some kind. The voices make a request to plug into a source of information, so Anciu makes a device to remotely connect to the Transcomputer Network, and the voices surf the web for a little while. Their porn adventures are cut short just before they actually see any, because they somehow receive an image of a creature in Narus' room and one of them breaks off to alert Narus and Anciu. Narus departs in case the creature is after him, going to a shopping district place. He buys a Steve-influenced outfit and some food. Before he can eat, he is interrupted by a strong, brief magnetic interference (he and Anciu had felt something similar while he was at Anciu's, but much more weakly). When he starts eating, he notices that Basse is sitting nearby and they have a brief discussion. At a combination of /quest/'s behest and his own thoughts, he goes to an electronics store, and from there heads to the spaceport. He calls Basse and mentions the thing that had been in his house earlier. A voice speaks up and changes the shape of the voiceball into a small mobile robot thing, taking Narus by surprise.

A bunch of other things have happened since then, but here's a highlight:
<Shiitake> I'm somewhat ashamed that during the giant leg lick we intruded upon Narus's private parts
As the one running the quest, I have to say I think that is a good response. At the same time, I'm amused that such a comment is something that would even come up. Also, D:

The quest is out of continuity with Flight of the Megasus, and takes place around ten Earth years before it.

Presently we know alien life forms exist. Probably no one is alive today who was alive before we knew this; it's become a fact of life. Thanks to the Cramakc, our first contact, we are part of an enormous intergalactic community! Our naturally helpful tendencies left us well-equipped to work things out between their representatives and ours. It wasn't all smooth going, though...

When the Cramakc came in their vessels, no one knew what to expect. They had tried to send transmissions, but something blocked them. Surveillance equipment saw them coming and we prepared for the worst, while hoping for the best. The government had already picked its finest minds in the fields of theoretical xenopsychology, biology, linguistics, and statistical analysis, along with others. The Cramakc were already advanced enough that they didn't have to worry about us doing anything harmful to them, and they knew it. The aesthetic of their technology's was definitely an influence on us. Their tendency to make items whose appearance does not belie their function caused a stark contrast to our own items. The idea caught on very well in the public, giving rise to the popularity of appliances and architecture with hidden panels, buttons, niches, and so on. At the time, their tools were simply confusing.

Now that we embrace the aesthetic, we confuse aliens who sees our [produced things] too. By using certain conventions in construction, we can make it intuitive to discover what an object does, for those who know what to look for. People realized very quickly after the style became widespread that it could get out of hand very quickly (which it did), and the then-active acting group, "We Want You To Watch Us," performed a sketch featuring the idea on their television programme.

The Cramakc themselves rarely appear on Uis anymore. Their influence is still all over our planet: The phones we use to communicate intraplanetarily and interplanetarily are their technology. The translation implants that are so ubiquitous now are actually here by the Wilthes' courtesy, but without the Cramakc we would'nt have those either. ...

547-First known evidence of extradimensional matter discovered

Hyperdimensional matter. How do you discover it? From the looks of things, the best answer seems to be that you don't, unless it comes to you. And you had better be careful if it does. Many of the predictions came true: it can have effectively infinite mass, for example. Lucky for us, the first matter of this sort had finite mass, was in space, and had a seeming resistance to spassitudinal motion. It was the remnants of a vessel, most likely from our own universe.

We only know this much because of a helpful extradimensional person who arrived later, and gave us a few extradimensional tools with which we could observe the ship fully, with instruction for their use. To date only three extradimensional persons are known to have visited Uis, but their very existence has shaped our understanding of the nature of our universe, and to some degree the nature of many more.

Along with the observational tools, the first of these people came a simple device for storing objects in a space with an extra axis, the technology behind which has been immensely useful in saving room. She would not explain the workings of these. The second such person helped greatly refine what we knew about higher dimensions, but was reluctant to show us anything new. With his help, we were able to replicate the devices given to us by the first. These first two hyperdimensional people never revealed their names, but the third has given us the name "Dessen" to call it by.

It has declined to give us new technology, but has revealed the existence of other universes and demonstrated things that defy our understanding of our own. Examples include spontaneous generation of wormholes, and its ability to alter the physical properties of itself and other objects, such as gravity and even temperature (which is particularly baffling), by methods which could not be identified. It has only appeared in the last [~1 decade], and not all of Uis has heard of it, for various reasons. There has been speculation about its intentions, particularly after the Epicentral government said that it sometimes walks among us, but does not reveal itself. We do know that it was created as an observational tool, by an extrauniversal civilisation that we can only assume exists from Dessen's testimony. It claims that they seek perfection in all things, and that it is part of this process. The possibility of other universes has ben a topic of fiction and discussion for millenia, so having confirmation of their existence raises many questions, scientific and philosophical. That's a little beyond the scope of this text, though.

The Complete Works of "Merrito"

(need image from http://tgchan.org/kusaba/quest/res/85235.html#136499)
"Merrito" was the pseudonym of Lakan 13 Left, a great artist and pornographer. The field of pornography was already very old and still underdeveloped when he started, but with such a low interest by the general public, he felt had to really get creative. Most pornography beforehand was very simplistic, just showing the acts of sex, but Merrito was not satisfied with this, opting for a more unique presentation style.

picture displayed: Spectrum #4.image fidelity will not be perfect.
The "Spectrum" series features rainbowlike arrangements of multiple subjects, such as the one shown here. The shine on the eyes is visible due to the use of an As-Eye camera with Extraspectral settings. Merrito possessed the Extraspectral vision trait, and felt that others should see his works as close to the way he did as possible. This influence is also present in many of his paintings.

Not all of his art was pornographic. Even so, that is what he is most well-known for. Though he did not succeed in making sexually explicit works popular, he still gave us some pretty and sometimes thought-provoking things to look at. In this ["book"] is a roughly chronological sequence of all of "Merrito"'s known pieces, accompanied by background information, and sometimes commentary by Merrito himself. We hope you will enjoy it.

The Sexual Act(modern, named after the ancient writ)

If you're reading this, you probably want to learn some things about sex. Great! But don't expect everything to be explained here; there are some things you have to learn on your own. Some of the techniques herein may not be the best for your partner or yourself, so you are encouraged to experiment. This ["book"] only deals with sex between Silirw of the same species, but some principles can be applied outside of that. Now, let's get on with it.

Bones. Let's see a skeleton.

(image needed here from http://tgchan.org/kusaba/quest/res/85235.html#87298)
Images are captioned: "These torso skeleton sketches are by an alien scholar, and are inexact. They are also not to scale." The bone structure is one of the most differing parts of Cyral and Enial anatomies. Cyral bones are more numberous, less flexible, and plate-based. Enial bones are fewer, quite flexible, and more rounded. The Enials, of course, also have wings, which require additional structures near the base of the skull to attach. In both, the brains are encased with several openings for blood flow and transmission of information. The heart is also encased similarly. The gonads, which are held internally, have protective bones which prevent entry of foreign objects from certain angles.

The flexible, simple skeleton of the Enial (the skeleton shown here is an hermaphrodite, [[for the record]]) allows them to perform contortions that would break a Cyral. Both are capable of [[an extreme frontbend]], but only Enials can reverse their posture, such that (to demonstrate) their wings are positioned below their eyes, with their mouth now above their eyes. ...

Anatomy and culture

One of the earlest problems encountered in our history was how to count. It may seem simple, but remember that there are more ways to count than we can count. At the earliest times, the Enials counted on their fingers. When it came time for the Cyrals, there was a problem- a different number of fingers on each hand! The common ancestor, we now know, had 2 digits to its 6 limbs. In the precursor-Cyrals, the middle limb split along the middle, joining with the two beside it.

(need image from http://tgchan.org/kusaba/quest/res/85235.html#152831)
Many numbering systems were considered before a base-based system, the duodecimal system we use today, was finally settled upon. Of course, no one really counts on their digits anymore except as an occasional mental aid. image is accompanied by the text, "The symbol of a stylised Enial hand with its fingers between a similar Cyral hand has become synonymous with mathematics, nature, and unity."

The ridgeflaps at the side of the Enial's upper body, from behind the eyes to the base of the wings, can be used to suspend things from, such as jewellery. This is a fairly common practice which arose independently in multiple regions. Sometimes pieces of dirt can become stuck in the ridgeflaps and cause irritation and other problems. Stretching beyond the earliest recorded history, people have come up with devices for cleaning them.

Several past cultures had come up with an idiom involving the cleaning of one's ridgeflaps, though they were not intended for the same contexts. The modern Enial Language 1 contains a variation along the lines of "maybe [[he/se/she]] is cleaning [[his/hir/her]] ridgeflaps," to be used when someone is busy with some unknown task. ...

The gonads of the Cyral can be further subdivided into 3 parts: The storage component, the fluid-generating component, and the gamete-generating component. The latter two are positioned on what appear to be stalks, offset from the storage area.
The male and female gonads of the Enial are more self-contained, with all the parts inside the body of the organ.
Just like the male genital covering, the female Cyral genital covering overlaps such to form an horizontal line.
The female Enial genital opening, fully closed, is essentially a dot, which can increase in vertical size, and somewhat horizontally, to accomodate the shape of the male member of the same species. ...

Crossovers with other quests

The black and glowy entity met up with Truthio from Resonance around the time of the Narus' Quest update before the insane asylum tour began. Frolicking was done.
