I uh… honestly don't know what to think. On the one hand, it was amusing and I enjoyed it and read it to the end. On the other hand, in the context of a SCP it just seems a little _too_ silly.
Though I guess we already have Dial-a-llama and a number of other things.
(Is it bad of me that I half expected the last note to be an order form for a few thousand turkeys? - what with the document about human history and all)
I wanted to end it that way, actually, but I didn't really liked it. The Foundation sent a document about the human story because they thought that there really was a civilzation of intelligent turkeys, but instead they found turkey-eating alien birds.
…So do the inhabitants of the turkeyverse know that turkeys are actually native to the New World, and the name "turkey bird" derives from the fact that the Turks were the first Europeans to domesticate and trade them?
Not really. They know nothing about our turkeys. The ancient Hindler turkeys talked Turkish, but then the Herons came over and ate them all. Now they are trying to trick the turkeys from another dimension to think that there is a turkey heaven. Legit enough?
This is hilarious [sans the few typoes]. Reminds me of Hitchhikers' Guide To The Galaxy without being overly silly or going into LOLFoundation territory. You played the tone straight and for that, bravo. Hope this gets mainlisted.
I think you're reading it wrong. The herons won, they would just like some more tasty tasty turkeys to show up. It's a Heron civilization pretending that the turkeys won.
Yup. That's right. But in the end, the other turkey (Lady Bauble) somehow defeats the Herons. She is the one writing the last note. And:
and didn't you say that we could only send turkey's through and not other materials?
Nope. We can send other materials trough it, but we can't send other animals. Only turkeys. By the way, thank you guys c:
