"If we don't have enough food people will also die."

"Yes, I understand that, but we'll fix it, I'll send one of the ships back up to go get Yavanna right away -" and one of the ships does, in fact, take off - "and maybe we can take people to Valinor if there isn't sufficient food and it's going to take too long to set up your ecology better -"

"Stepping down from a war is delicate, but we will consider it if your solutions are sufficient."

Permalink

"Thank you. Are there other pressing problems?"

Permalink

"I'm not sure what to expect you to find a pressing problem."

Permalink

"Are there other things that cause people to die?"

Permalink

"...yes, of course."

Permalink

"Well, those would be pressing problems."

Permalink

"People die of diseases or civil violence or old age."

Permalink

"Our people live to be about forty of our years...?"

Permalink

"....oh. I would not even know where to start on helping with that but the Valar might and even if they can't we will get there eventually. The Eldar do not die, save by accidents or violence, and then we can be resurrected from our backups."

Permalink

"I see. We do not have backups."

Permalink

"We don't know yet how to safely install backups in other species but we'll get to work on it immediately."

Permalink

"That is very generous of you."

Permalink

"It is very exciting to make contact with other worlds, even if they have problems unknown to us. How should we begin to learn about yours?"

Permalink

"We would be happy to bring some or all of you to our capital city."

Permalink

"I imagine everybody would love to come." Pause. "No, some tests are still running. Forty of us will come."

Permalink

"Our convoy is this way."

The convoy is protected by armed people with white or grey hair.

Permalink

The Elves are not sure what to make of the weapons but get in agreeably and close their eyes and start singing.

Permalink

The locals find this very interesting! A couple of the green haired people look like they want to interrupt but they don't.

Permalink

"Are the differences in hair innate or chosen?" someone asks one of their guides after a few songs.

Permalink

"The color?" asks a different blue haired person. "Most people have the right hair color for them at birth, and those who don't dye it so no one is confused. No one has black hair like that here so there shouldn't be any problems with people making assumptions."

Permalink

"Some Elves have -" their color divisions seem a little different - "orange or golden or silver hair."

Permalink

"Then I suppose people might think they were doctors or craftspeople or athletes. But you would be a little difficult to mistake for our species, so it wouldn't be a strong assumption."
