Challenge #03656-J003: Without Orders

They sat Deathwatch as the entire polity's leaders refused the "evil" medicines that were desperately needed to cure the deadly virus sweeping their empire. The leadership died of the virus, the few people left, the sick and the very few immunes, reached out. The leaders are gone, please help us? -- Anon Guest

Greater Deregulation Lower Median North-Northwest was dying. Worse, it was dying of a preventable disease.

It wasn't often that a whole world died of Measles[1], but it was happening. It was even rarer that a whole world blockaded any and all medical intervention because of imaginary poisons, but this was a Greater Deregulation. They were founded on willful ignorance and profit for profit's sake.

It should not have been shocking that such a thing happened, but the shock didn't care about those rules.

Challenge #03243-H334: Is This a Perfect Body?

A way is found that will help Human Lass survive without food, only water. They contacted B'Nar as she had, once again, collapsed. This time, she'd ended up in a coma due to nutrient deficiencies. A new body to be made, completely artificial, an android, not needing food, though she could eat and drink if she so chose, it'd do nothing for her, just be burned up as extra fuel, or she could just recharge via solar or any other method she

Challenge #03068-H160: We Agree With You

HAH! (Heavenworlders Against Humans!) stated as an small movement which mutated into an organisation that had only 3 "simple" demands/ goals

1 Rid Alliance space of humans

2 Restrict Greater (and lesser) Deregulations to their own space and strictly guard and monitor their borders

3 Return to the peace and safety that was pre Human Alliance.

the Alliance was at a loss as to what to do with this steadily growing absurdity, as Heavenworlders had never recorded instances of *rofanticising past civilizations.

Challenge #03057-H134: A Wilful Sacrifice

It was a race against time. Despite the Dereggers giving a weak attempt at a blockade, refusing to believe there was any danger, the alliance ships swooped in to yank every man, woman, and child off of the two colony planets before the sun engulfed the entire system. The colonists had asked for help but the CEO's had been rejecting their requests, saying there was no danger, CEO's hate being proven wrong. -- Lessons

The CEO's of Planetary Domains Inc. swore up

Stupid is infectious

In sympathy with the idiots with guns protesting lockdowns, over in the US, some idiots with cardboard signs tried protesting the lockdowns in Victoria. All of those people from Victoria are enjoying a no-frills lockdown care of the nation's prisons.

Next thing you know, they'll be drinking bleach to try and cure themselves. PSA - don't drink bleach or you will die.

Challenge #02667-G110: A Chosen Confusion

It is, at best, unwise to mistake these things for each other...

Kindness for Weakness

Patience for Passivity

Caution for Cowardice

Silence for Ignorance

Those who have done so have, almost invariably, learned the differences are vast indeed, and quite often have learned this in a manner whose results ensure they do not ever make that same mistake twice... or do anything else ever again, either... -- Anon Guest

It's almost a joke: A Galactic Citizen and a Deregger arrive at a

Challenge #02363-F173: The Ego Won't Be Landing

There is, in fact, a Starman waiting in the sky. He is not leaning back on his radio, as the song once said, but is seated comfortably in a red roadster, wearing a stylish spacesuit. He posed so that he could, with a glance, read the dashboard display that says, Don't Panic!

He does not say anything. He does not do anything. That's because he is, in fact, a dummy. An effigy of

Dear people who have nothing better to do than put hate in other folks' inboxes:

There is a “block” button on tumblr for a reason.

If someone is saying something you don’t like on tumblr, you can block them. Of course, they can go on saying whatever they damn well please [which, as I understand, is a constitutional right in the USA where most tumblrites are] but the bonus is - if you block them, you never see it,

You can even attempt to report them for harassment.

That is, if you think
