The Joining

Sublimity VI is a world of shallow seas rising to jagged peaks beneath which are dense jungles and across its 25 continents are a glowing life force of flora & fauna that seems at times to blend together as one, yet at other times to be in supreme conflict!.

The survey teams who explored this world came to the conclusion after extensive study over a number of years that no sentient life was present, but they did remark on the way the flora & fauna seemed to blend together!

But as in all things human, we base things on what we deem as logical.

If they had stayed and settled here, something totally alien would have being observed, for they were wrong in their evaluation of this planet, this world teems with alien sentient life.

At a certain time in the planets journey around its sun, when only two of its 7 moons can be seen in the evening sky, a metamorphosis takes place, a communication between species, this comes about every 300 turns, ( a turn is 10 Earthly years ) at that time all life on the planet starts its symbiotic metamorphosis. A coming of age if you will, when the young of the planet move into their adult state, when communication………………………………………….is.

This happens across all 25 of Sumlimity’s continents simultaneously, a time when the sea species rise to embrace those of the land, when reflections are more than mere reflections, when the seas take on a sublime transparency, when the life in the oceans meets and blends with those of the upper world. It is a joining of billions, the very air pulsates in their metamorphosis. And of course each blending is beneficial to both species.

One such joining takes place between the Pearl Skinned Sea Fan & the Spiraling Green Fronds of the Metamorphosis Vine, both carnivores.

The Sea Fan is rooted in the oceans sandy bottom, swaying back and forth in the ocean currents, a fantastic rhythm of hypnotic vibrations, the vibrations draw in small boney fish and crustaceans which become as one with the Sea Fan.

Whereas the Metamorphosis Vine is part plant & part animal, and in its long life it sends out its tendrils and in this way travels across the whole planet, devouring only the poisonous life forms within its path.

The joining is beneficial to both, the Pearl Skinned Sea Fan takes from the Spiraling Green Fronds the poisons it as ingested, that in turn help break down the bones and shell left over from its food.

Whereas the Spiraling Green Fronds of the Metamorphosis Vine extract from the Sea Fan a mineral that is formed when combined with the juices of the fish/crustaceans within the skin of the Sea Fan, thereby keeping at bay the poisons it consumes, thus letting it survive until the next morphing!

Together they blend and become a single multicellular sentient being, which only exists in this form for 1 turn.

This is a collaboration or joining between M1chaelFrank and Alienvisitor, Michaels fantastic alien botanical creations combined with AV’s imaginative worlds & descriptions.
