Challenge #03170-H261: Nothing Was Hurt

Human Lass has to mentally contend with the fact she's been eating the body parts of COGNISCENT beings and their pets, since she's been refusing all other foods, and the plants on this planet are almost all cogniscent. One has to imagine the mental collapse as she recognizes the pieces she had on her plate not long before, with the surgical procedures she just witnessed on the plant-beings.

Here's hoping therapists can heal a full mental collapse.

For two days, the dangerous, baby-eating mammal refused any and all food. Only when they patiently explained the harm Lass was doing by forcing them to interact with other baby-eaters, did she relent and force herself to ingest soups. Disgusting soups to the both of them, now, but as long as it didn't contain anything she could recognise, all was nominally well.

It was clear that something had finally sunk in. It was also clear that that nugget of new information was devastating.

The compromise, for Lass, was fungus. Fungus had yet to show any kind of evolution towards cogniscence, sentience, or any imitation thereof. It was all natural and did not contain anything like nerve endings. Therefore, nothing got hurt.

bkf482: I can see it, they deliberately crashed their ship, but it wasn't damaged enough where they couldn't have just left. So they deliberately sabotaged their ship so it would look like their ship had been hurt a lot worse in the crash forcing them to stay there despite

Challenge #03065-H157: All Life Feeds on Death

"How do you think I feel seeing you eat a salad??"

A die-hard vegan's ship crash-lands on a planet that's what appears to almost be a haven world, lots of small animals, lots of plant life, absolutely paradise. Except...that the vegan sees a plant suddenly snap shut when an animal gets too close and the animal is eaten.

The cogniscents there are green, skin, hair, eyes, and they move with a slight rustling. They are descendant of carnivorous plants that have

Challenge #02692-G135: Should Have Written a Fix-it Fic

There was a knocking at my door, annoyed I ignored it. But they are determined to reach to me. When I eventually answered, I haven’t a foggiest clue about them. Told them I’m not buying what they trying to sell, but before I was able to close the door they stop me and the next word was seared into my mind. “You don’t know who I am, but I know you... I know how your story will end, I-I
