Having sounded the cosmos for eons and sought unceasingly after all knowledge, this particular being was ascending to a higher plane. Yet greater beings stood there and began to assess its knowledge. The judgment: while it technically had come to a knowledge of everything, it had, in the Greater Beings' opinion, failed to sufficiently show its work, and would have to be reincarnated as a bacterium and start over.

"I am here and this is happening. I have lived and breathed and bled and had a unique experience as an individual being. And I have existed and exist, and if only someone could see that..."
"Yeah, alright, I guess what I'm trying to say is, I think you're right. I should take that order to go."

The problem was, no one could tell which eye was glass, an aesthetic prosthesis, and which was the functional one. One schoolyard rumor held that both were glass, and the man was one of those remarkable, totally blind individuals who manages to pass as a seeing person. Cynical observers speculated that the opposite was true, and both eyes were glassy and glazed over, but were the functioning eyeballs he had been born with so very long ago.

Well, I don't like like you, and I don't even really like you. Maybe I half-like you...I li you? Maybe our relationship is sufficiently insignificant that it doesn't need to be described by a word, and we should just go talk to other people.

Dr. Vandertramp stood over the fallen form of his vanquished foe, managing to look simultaneously triumphant and a little bored.
"Do you know why I am standing, Generalissimo, and you are not?" he asked.
The man's only response was a wet cough and a groan.
"Sometimes, even your enemies will do you the favor of showing you your flaws, and perhaps even suggest a way to improve. You should take that very seriously, and be grateful, regardless of the source. If there is a 'next time' for you, try to remember that."

At first, they only regarded each other in disbelief, he with his overbite and she with her underbite, each feeling a lifetime's insecurities and frustrations simply dissipate into nothing. So this was what it meant to have a soul mate. And when words failed them on that first occasion, they fell into a passionate embrace. From then on, they shared a prognathic correspondence so exact that normal-biters would never understand the perfection attained each time they kissed.

"You mean we're just going to leave it there?" the expedition's scientist said.
"Unless you have some extra fuel you've been keeping to yourself, we can't afford to take garbage back with us to Earth. Propulsion doesn't come cheap," the commander replied, at least half of her attention simultaneously devoted to something else.
"But the ecosystem—"
"I don't think rocks and dust counts as an ecosystem, doctor. Not when nothing's living in it. But if it makes you feel any better, someday they'll have the technology to take care of the trash. It's the future's problem."

Viewed from exactly the right perspective, which involved some improbable angles and a fair amount of squinting, Josiah Gerbil was a handsome and trustworthy-looking man. At all other times, he had an appearance that his local newspaper once unkindly (and unnecessarily) described as "resembling the offspring of a troll and a cactus".

Also, did you know that I have awesome friends? You might be one of them (but don't get cocky). My friend Collin made this piece of guest art, and I'm a big fan. If only more of you could be like Collin and make comics for me.
