SDF Audition 0.3 [Final]“Hey gator; I wasn’t sure I’d be seeing you later,” Ian joked with a smile though the long day of travel had worn her out and her body had odd aches from having to sit still for so long in the oddly shaped ‘One Size Fits (Mostly) All’ airplane seat. “And a big old sign, just for me? I’m flattered.”SDF Audition 0.3 [Final] by knux33
The thin-snouted croc looked the same since the wolverine had seen her last, though the suit had wrinkled further and gathered a few new coffee stains. In her scaly hands was a large swath of thick paper with the name ‘IAN’ scrawled on it.
“You were courtious enough to inform the studio of your arrival time,” the female reptile rasped out as if fetching Ian was the last thing she’d wanted to waste her time with today, “so it’s only fair we send a car out with the proper representative. You have paperwork to sign before we get there.”
Ian limped after the agent as the crocodile turned to quic
Spiral Down Films Audition p5 (END)Karl’s mind was made up. He only stayed long enough watch himself become a God-like figure among the HackersUnite crew before logging off.Spiral Down Films Audition p5 (END) by Techn0Gecko
Then, he emerged from his hole and basked in the watery sunlight of morning. His circuits were flooded with warmth, adding to his new sense of happiness. The two hour charge period also gave him apt time to think through an action plan and his cover story.
Filled with nervous energy, he took one last glimpse into the sparse hole that had been his home for nearly a year and then began his journey to the studio.
For the first stretch, he travelled on foot. However, as soon as he was in the city, he hitched a ride on a passing train. As usual, he ducked paying for a ticket (despite he had ample money to afford one) by travelling incognito on the outside of the carriage. Then, he caught the free shuttle bus service to the middle of nowhere; right up to the doors of the Spiral Down Films studio.
As they pulled up to the lot, Karl crept behind the f
Spiral Down Films Audition p3As Karl walked back to his home, the crushing reality of his existence was overwhelming. As he crawled through the city, he was taunted by the smell of Chinese takeaway, warm doughnuts and fried chicken. Eventually, the agony became too much and he turned away from the ever-present lights and sounds of Las Vegas and took the scenic route home across the desert. Heading over the loose sand, it took over an hour longer than he should but it was still better than the city food torture.Spiral Down Films Audition p3 by Techn0Gecko
After his long detour, he sighed with relief as he crept into his den. It was gloomy in the dawn light, his florescent markings glowing in the darkness. Mundane and unfurnished though it was, this small sandy crevice under a large rock appealed to his gecko nature and had become his refuge away from the world.
Sighing, he sluggishly made his way over to the one feature in the room; the dark screen of a smart phone propped up against the wall. Attaching his tongue, Karl’s body stilled as he interfaced
Spiral Down Films Audition p2After deodorant was hastily applied, the gecko and the scientist began to work out the capabilities and fine tune Karl’s sensory system. As it turned out, his sense of smell was actually a lot more sensitive than a human’s, but a lot less accurate unless Karl sensed the air multiple times. Many smells were pre-programmed, but Karl could also manually input new ones if needed. The scientist was also delighted to see the software came with handy smell association information. This would allow Karl to identify whether a smell was pleasant and the implications around smelling it, which would make smell useful in day to day life.Spiral Down Films Audition p2 by Techn0Gecko
‘What about this one?’ The scientist said, producing the next smell they needed to test.
‘Fire.’ Karl said robotically, ‘It’s dangerous. Or it would be, if it wasn’t clearly coming from a match. You’d be a feckin idiot if you ran from that.’
‘Ok, wise guy. What about this?’
