Challenge #02477-F287: Fair Scare Tactics

The Havenworlders learn of the Human tradition of Halloween. Some Human nations have it as the day of the dead, some have it as All Hallow's Eve, either way, it's a lot of fun for the Humans, not so much for Havenworlders, and most other Deathworlders to be honest. As Humans get ready for their holiday with skulls, frightening movies, costumes, and treats, many nations tremble wondering what will happen when that festival arrived. -- DaniAndShali

This is Halloween! This is Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! -- Incredibly catchy Human festival song.

Humans have an incredible fascination with things that could kill them. So much so that they invent things that could kill them if they actually existed. They invent things to scare themselves with. Then, on a specific day of their calendar[1], they all decide to bring those fears into the open and celebrate them. The undead, the monsters of their assorted fictions, deadly beasts[2], or random concepts with the word 'sexy' tacked onto the front[3]... All of them come out when the Humans celebrate this one day of horror.

As the reader might understand, the whole 'fear factor' involved in that holiday does not mesh well with Havenworlders. This has lead to 'Deathworlder Zoning', so that resident Havenworlder populations can simply avoid all the weird Deathworlder horror elements scattered all over those areas.

The Alliance, not knowing this, get a little worried when they threatened about the dragons. While humans try to make the dragons feel less like outcasts. -- Anon Guest

At first, the Humans thought it was a joke. Galactic Alliance

[ a race of sapient felines encounter Humans and their pets ] -- Anon Guest

Ahnrau hadn't expected a close encounter like this one. She had been hunting valuable asteroids when a shard of a distant impact sent her vessel spiralling out of control. The last thing she remembered before the spin blacked her out was identifying another vessel on a collision path...

She was messed up. She could feel it. But... she was also on the mend. The room she was in was

Challenge #02020-E196: Strange Bedfellows

Humanity as a whole is known as many things to many different species. Yes, while they are terrifying deathworlders more than capable of destroying everyone and everything, they’ve always been willing to lend a helping hand to all those who ask, and even those who don’t. So was it really that big a surprise when, after a powerful warmongering race declared war on humanity that half the universe flocked to humanity’s aid? -- Anon Guest

For every bully, there
