Rec: That One Time Gita Chandra Saved the Earth with Roses by dbskyler

Story: That One Time Gita Chandra Saved the Earth with Roses
Author: dbskyler
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 760
Author's Summary: Throop had never before met an opponent like Gita.
Characters/Pairings: Gita Chandra
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's Gita being blind when it comes to aliens, which is fun enough on its own, but what makes this story stand out particularly is that it's written from the alien's point of view. Even though he describes things differently to how we would, we can still tell exactly what is going on.

Excerpt:
Slowly he crept forward, checking that there was no sign of movement from the home. He was ready to proceed when suddenly his plans fell disastrously apart: an Earthwoman emerged from the opposite dwelling and approached him. Her arm was upraised, her hand waving in a threatening gesture, and as she grew closer, she opened her mouth and showed her many teeth. She quickly came to within firing distance, displaying no regard for any danger despite the fact that his disruptors were plainly visible. Throop shuddered at the thought that she felt so confident in her ability to overcome the weapons.

If you like this story don't forget to tell the author!
