crickets?? | ota | un: hawkeye

Okay, so there are definitely aliens here. (Or I guess we're the aliens, technically.) It'd be good to try to compile what we know so far in one place, so here are a couple questions:
1. What are we calling them? I've heard crickets, I've heard grasshoppers, and a bunch of other stuff that seems even less polite. Can we agreee on one? Any other ideas?

2. I haven't run into any that seem chatty yet but I hear they talk in colors???

3. Do we have any idea how the people they took were chosen/singled out? Did you/they all go to a specific place or distance or do something to draw their attention? Anything in common? Looking for patterns never really worked on the ship but we could try.

Maybe they would consider it a compliment.

Cricket. I don't think there's a way to take the other one well.
They could worship bugs or something, though.
You never know.

To a point.
If someone says you or Kate has long legs they probably mean well.
No one who says it to me is being nice.

I'd call your hair stupid.
But lovingly.

Boring sport.
Harmless bug.

I did have to pick the legs off a few bags of crickets in detention once, but we can not tell them that.

I've never seen a baseball game.

The kind you get for blowing up your cauldron during Potions class.
Why, what did you do during detention?

My mum had a television once.
It scared me & I blew it up.


How is that a punishment?
Didn't you have to do homework anyway?

A nature documentary.
I was young.

The crickets were already dead.
Cricket legs were an ingredient in the potion I ruined.
I'd been lazy and threw in the whole cricket.
It was poetic really.

No, it was about wolves.

You still haven't explained how a study session is punishment.

That's amazing.
Our caretaker still has chains in his office from hanging students from the walls.
