I can't believe the fuckers actually caught me.

I know, I was careless. I was supposed to just be scoping out the Depot for the Action next month. But when I saw the Animals trying to rape the little sisters, I guess I just lost it. I mean, just because the little sisters don't have Minds doesn't mean they're not Our sisters, you know?

Well...you know what happened next.

The Animals think with their fists, and little else.

They're beasts. Gaia gave the Animals brains but damned if they'll use them.

Beat and fuck, beat and fuck some more - that's all they know, all they care about.

And they wonder why We want to stop them.

Well, actually...they don't seem to wonder at all. Because if they did they would have noticed two things. First, we only target Animals. Second, they rarely catch a male Brain. Brain...what a silly, inarticulate way to describe what We are. But what else can you expect, from Animals?

****

We call Ourselves the Children of the Mind.

Most of Us are women, of course. Gaia knew what She was doing when She handed out the Talent, so it's only natural that most of Us are women. Those few men among Us are the Special ones - the ones more like women, so they think more like the rest of Us. Usually they are lovers of men, which suits Us just fine. Regardless, they will copulate with Us when needed - it's the only way We can ensure that Our children will also be Children of the Mind.

****

They think We can't talk. That's the Animals for you - always assuming that if they can't see it, touch it, or feel it, it doesn't exist. Dumbasses.

Of course We can talk. Gaia didn't take Our human voices when She gave Us Our Minds.

But why walk when you can run? We don't talk because We have no need.

****

They'll put the Lock on soon, of course.

I am but one, and my talents are limited. I'll take out a few more before they can put me in the Lock, but eventually they will.

And then I'll be sent to the Quiet Grounds. Others who have escaped were nearly mad when they came back to Us. I can only imagine what it will be like - to be unable to hear my Sisters. To be unable to call out, to be heard. To be limited in such a way.

I can only hope that my Mind survives. Not everyone's does.

I will wait for my Sisters to free me, and hope.

****

The Animals tell the public they have caught Us all. They're wrong, of course. We've just gotten better about hiding Ourselves from their Eyes. We watch, We wait, and We grow strong.

The Animals should be afraid. They aren't, of course - Animals think they know everything, and since they don't know about Us, clearly We must not exist.

We watch, and We wait.

One day soon, Our numbers will be enough. One day soon, We will play the odds.

One day...

But not yet.

****

Come, my Sisters.

I am waiting.

This has been a post for LJ Idol. This week my fate is linked to the lovely [livejournal.com profile] applespicy. Her entry is here. Ideally hers should be read before mine. If you want to vote, the link will be up later in week.

Wonderfully done, you are both right there taking to opposite sides and presenting them perfectly. Well done.

Aahhhh I love it! I actually did a bit of bouncing, I am not ashamed to say, when I read this. Totally, totally perfect. I love that the Brains are mostly women, and the way they think of the Animals. Love it, love it, love it.

I'm glad you liked it! You did a great job creating a world that I could work well with. I enjoyed writing it. :)

On a side note, wanna be my fweind? :)

We must be on a wavelength or something - I was just creepin' on your profile, about to hit that little "add friend" button.

GMTA?

I don't write much any more - being a crazed grad student, LJ was one of the things that ended up giving, but you are welcome to my wacky world. :)

S'all right, I completely understand. I'm teaching now and don't update like I used to (though still... quite a bit, haha).

Yay friends!

Oooh. The story is still creepy, but knowing a little more about the enemy makes it much cooler. Nicely done.

I love reading different perspectives to the same story. It really shows how complex situations can be.

Thanks! I don't always like what I write, and I think this could be cleaner, but overall I was really pleased with it.

What's interesting about this piece is that WHAT she's saying makes her hostile and kind of scary, but HOW she says it (specifically through your use of capital letters) makes her otherworldly.
