I know! D': I have been so busy with school that I haven't had time for anything else. Thankfully, though I'm almost done with this semester! And I have pictures I still need to finish for you. For my form and light class, we have to repaint one of our pictures with correct lighting and form and whatnot and I was thinking of redoing the one w/Ary by himself. IDK THOUGH *flails!*
By the way, hoping I still got your attention, I never really understood why Locks bother with human beings. All I know about them is their most basic physics, and that alone tells me they really shouldn't be interested in us, and still they take our shape and interact with us. Why? Do we have equal inteligence? Do they function according to another nature where lesser beings are revered/admired? Are we the one species with the highest evolution other than theirs? Why do they bother with us?
You could ask why they bother interacting with any of the other sentient alien species in the multitudes of Empires they helped spawn throughout the cosmos, humans are not unique to the question. It all goes back to them finding some intrinsic value in interacting with certain members of other species, and that value outweighing the drive to consume everything like they were supposedly born to do.
Technically they're the same age if you're counting the time they've both existed although with Locks 'age' is more defined by how long they've been conscious of that existence (so Aryian is a couple billion years older). Their size is not indicative of age, though, they're both the same sizes they were when they were 'born'.
That is fascinating, so all known Locks that exist through their age of being are all the same age, but their when they gain conscious is their 'birth'. Was this common before they lost their ability to mate? And with their sizes after being 'born' can they chose how large or small they appear in Lock form?....do you have a information page somewhere? I would like to learn more.
