Failure to Communicate
Failure to Communicate | Kaia Sønderby
4 posts | 1 read | 1 reading | 3 to read
As one of the only remaining autistics in the universe, Xandri Corelel has faced a lot of hardship, and she's earned her place as the head of Xeno-Liaisons aboard the first contact ship Carpathia. But her skill at negotiating with alien species is about to be put to the ultimate test.
The Anmerilli, a notoriously reticent and xenophobic people, have invented a powerful weapon that will irrevocably change the face of space combat. Now the Starsystems Alliance has called in Xandri and the crew of the Carpathia to mediate. The Alliance won't risk the weapon falling into enemy hands, and if Xandri can't bring the Anmerilli into the fold, the consequences will be dire.
Amidst sabotage, assassination attempts, and rampant cronyism, Xandri struggles to convince the doubtful and ornery Anmerilli. Worse, she's beginning to suspect that not everyone on her side is really working to make the alliance a success. As tensions rise and tempers threaten to boil over, Xandri must focus all her energy into understanding the one species that has always been beyond her: her own.

Hopefully we are all back. Can't stand anymore of these 'updates'. I know things have to move with technology but Litsy was good as it was and didn't have these issues till a couple of months ago. Some people don't normally have this kind of conversation in the 'real' world it is a lifeline for them to make it through the day and if that is cut off because of it, it does more damage than good.

Burghbookaddict I agree. The amount of maintenance theyre doing is absurd. And my app has been super slow since the last "update" 1y
CouronneDhiver I‘m sure they aren‘t “out to get us”... just working hard to make it better. :) 1y

Ran into a friend on campus and invited them to join Litsy, and their first “like” of my post turned the counter over! Thanks @tinybeeps and welcome to Litsy, where everyone else is as nerdy as us and we call ourselves “littens” (no really isn‘t that like grossly cute) 😍 I tagged a book you might be into, I‘ve started it but it‘s been on hold for school reading 🤓💜🦄

#ourownvoices #weneeddiversebooks 😍 “I yanked my hood up, giving the tightening cord a small tug; the hood tightened and the sound-dampeners clamped over my ears, cutting out some of the racket. I sighed in relief as I bolted down the hall. Just because the universe refused to accommodate my sensory issues didn‘t mean I couldn‘t find ways around them.”
