Behold a pale horse

… and he who sat upon it was death.

A research pod sat on the back wall. What once was a cylindrical glass tube shattered some time before. The strange flora, still very much alive, covered the wall. A massive trunk stretched from floor to ceiling, puncturing the hull and sealing the breach with its own body.

Mouse walked to a nearby computer, inserting a memory drive into the only port it would fit in. "Argus, I'm connected to a computer."

"I see it. Nice work, I can touch every system on board from here. Are you on the bridge?" Argus replied.

"No, it looks like a lab. Pull everything you can. You'll have time. I don't think anyone's gonna pull the drive out. We're heading home." Mouse stood up and noticed Roadrunner staring at the writhing mass.
She was about to speak when he stepped forward, his attention drawn to a blank space on the wall near the pod. He wiped away the ice to reveal a plaque with words written in gold: "Pale Horse."
— From Odyssey 2
   
Azrael 1 is the name of the first system in a newly explored star cluster. Wayfarers ventured into the unknown and discovered quite the anomaly. Before Earth fell, it sent out The Four Horsemen, science cruisers meant to research that which they considered too dangerous to explore so close to home.   These explorers saw the result of such experiments. Project: Pale Horse is a dormant plant, a mass of white, fleshy roots nestled in a nebula of water vapor. These roots and brambles branched out from a vessel at its center point, taking the shape of a massive cosmic hourglass.   This plant stretches out nearly 4,000 km from The UEN Azrael, the ship that marks its point of origin. It orbits a white dwarf, somehow flourishing in the constant ocean of radiation, as well as the hard vacuum of space. As The Archivist of Safeharbor, I've looked over the data, and made my conclusions. I’m now prepared to add this information to The Archives.

 

Sample Analysis



Biological Functions

We were given a sample by The Wayfarers aboard The SVN Castine. Stained red from the sap, the flora's skin is soft, despite its outer layer's extreme density. This density is likely due to its exposure to the void. Human skin, an unsettlingly comparable substance, can easily handle a hard vacuum.   It's a common practice for one to cover hull breaches small enough with the hand until a sealing plate is found. You will suffer the worst hickey of your life, but you will, otherwise, be fine. The real problem with exposure comes from within. If exposed, our blood would boil in our veins due to the pressure, not to mention the radiation.   “Pale Horse'' adapted in such a way that it managed to solve this little problem. It has two layers of tissue protecting the vulnerable interior. The outer, more flesh-like layer protects from radiation and trauma from stellar debris. The second layer is similar to most plant fibers, but is also dense, allowing the plant to maintain interior pressures and temperatures.
     

Environmental Pressures

Visible light is a reflection. While some light and radiation is absorbed by Pale Horse for photosynthesis, it reflects most wavelengths of visible and non-visible light, giving the plant a white color that appears to glow in the light of the nearby star. This means the plant absorbs little in the way of light.   Plants need photosynthesis to survive, but I suspect this is the one benefit to being exposed to the void. It couldn't survive as is, and certainly couldn’t achieve its size, without being in a zero gravity environment. Once the vacuum is accounted for, it may never have needed much in the way of energy to grow, and the amount of energy present when so close to the star would prove more than enough.   There are no gravitational forces to overcome. There are no forms of fauna that can assist the plant in reproduction by spreading seeds, and no pests or predators to warrant the production of defense such as toxins and thorns. As such, it doesn't produce seeds. If it could speak, I imagine the flora would say its current location is highly agreeable.

Nutrition and Toxicity

It’s apparent that consuming any part of this plant is dangerous, based on reports from The Azrael. The sap smells floral, I assume the taste is lovely, as well, but it has some adverse effects in high quantities.   The sap's adverse effects occur when consumed over long periods of time. Neurotoxic compounds lead to damaged brain tissue. There are also compounds that disrupt bone density, leading to unnatural height and gait in the zero gravity environment of the void. Prolonged consumption will bring on these transformative qualities, and those afflicted will be irreversibly altered, becoming feral husks of what they once were.   It is safe to consume in small doses, no more than 6 g a week for the tissue and 1 L a week for the sap. With its nutritional density, a small section of the outer layer could feed you for days. It expands in the stomach due to how absorbent it is. The sap is equally beneficial, providing hydration, on top of its nutritional value.

 
Archivist's Note:The plant's tendency to absorb goes beyond just liquid. The plant also absorbs vapor, which explains why it manages to survive. Pale Horse sits in a cloud of water vapor, and constantly recycles what isn't used to survive. It even adapted to using the ship's interior to breathe. It managed to seal all hull breaches, most of which were its fault, and continued to grow until reaching pockets of air. It would use the crew to produce CO2 and, in turn, excrete O2.
 

Genetic Modifications

Upon deeper analysis of the samples collected, I've discovered evidence of genetic alterations to the subject. This is nothing surprising, as humanity indulged in genetic tampering many times before the earth fell. Almost every aspect of the plant is designed, with little in the way of mutation in its genetic code.   Pale Horse lacks vestigiality, traits that in another era of evolution served an end, but no longer have a purpose. Every aspect of the plant is almost perfect for its environment. There are disadvantageous traits that offer proof as well. The nutritional value of the plant is costly to produce in terms of energy. The vast majority of it is unneeded, and it never would have evolved them without pressure to do so, even in more favorable environments.   More importantly, these traits are all beneficial to human physiology. The kidneys and the liver filter toxins for a reason. Many things we consume contain impurities. Pale horse does not. It has no chemicals that are considered toxic, save for its rather unusual transformative qualities brought on by a major design oversight.
     

Ship Logs

The logs of the vessel clearly outline the goal of the project. Pale Horse was an attempt to find the one thing all those in the medical field are warned to avoid: a cure all. Apart from the nutrition, the sap contains numerous medical compounds, some unknown to our medical professionals. This explains the problems that come from high quantities of consumption.   Those who designed Pale Horse failed to realize that these compounds can blend together in the subject. By including such a cocktail of chemicals, some of these initially beneficial compounds blended together, a chemical reaction that developed the dangerous chemicals found in the plant today. It wasn't meant to grow to the size it did, either, which accounts for the trace amount of radiation in its sap. When active, it grew too much, breaching the hull of the vessel and continuing until going dormant. Pale Horse stores its nutrients in its outer layer.   Its growth is determined by the nutrients it managed to store over time, and the long voyage from earth was more than enough to reach its current size. Its size is still a bit of mystery. It shouldnt be as big as it is if it relied on its stored nutrients, alone. Based on the debris floating in the cloud of vapor, the plant likely had deposits of carbon and other building materials to assist its growth, latching onto asteroids and breaking them down over time in order to assist its growth.
   
Argus sat on the edge of her seat, carefully piloting the drone with her eyes glued to the screen. The drone raised the blade attached to it's arm, angled it as instructed, and made the first incision. The cut took effort. The fleshy skin resisted, almost too dense for the blade despite being sharpened to perfection. When the blade managed to cut through, the outer layers pealed away. Spheres of fluid floated off in the void, a thick red sap pouring from the wound.
“Is it…” Argus began, her stomach churning, “Is it bleeding?”
— Research notes from The SVN Calstine
 

The Pale Horse Protocol

It is of crucial importance to remain silent near samples of the plant. While docile, property damage is a potential hazard. The Safe Harbor protocols have an effect on Pale Horse. Each protocol attempted prompted little more than a twitch of acknowledgement, but saying the phrase “Behold a Pale Horse” will initialize rapid growth.   The sample grew three times its original size within a day, shattering its container before going dormant. After examination, the skin and sap were much thinner, the nutrients absorbed to fuel the rapid growth. I believe this reveals what occurred on The UEN Azrael. After testing the protocol, the plant grew more dramatically in its low gravity environment. The plant also sprouted vibrant, multicolored leaves, adapting to life while planet-side. These leaves indicate an attempt to gather as much light as possible, regardless of wavelength.   I believe that humanity tried something new, and somehow succeeded. Instead of creating technology meant to mimic nature, they produced something natural that could mimic their technology. More than the protocols, even the cells of the plant back this up. They function much like nanites in how they produce such a wide variety of nutrients and compounds.

Cool! And also unnerving. A great and intriguing article! This plant is like a nightmare plant, but at the same time, it would be fascinating to behold. The effects it has on humans aren't ideal, as the crew shows...But the plant sounds eerily beautiful! Great job; I can't wait to see more.

Yay! Your challenge article. I'm so excited to start reading.   I love the title, though it doesn't tell me enough about what the actual species name is. I was able to quickly skim and notice that it's called "Pale Horse" but you don't make that clear until the second paragraph after the quote. While you do state "Pale Horse" in the quote, I can't be certain if that's the plant or the ship or what. I have a little context that you're focusing on the plant, but your opening paragraph begins by talking about a star system. That immediately threw me off. Including an opening line that explains a bit more what the article is about might help. Granted, my comments should always be taken with a grain of salt since I miss things rather easily.   "What once was a cylindrical glass tube laid shattered on the floor."
This line is fine. I need to get that out of the way, to begin with. My comment here is more about style and narrative flow. I'd say a phrase that focuses more on the fact it's broken across the floor, setting the scene. For example, you could phrase it as "Shattered glass remains were sprawled across the floor, a reminder of the cylindrical glass tubing that once lined the walls." In that case, you focus on the glass more than what it came from. Not that my sentence makes much sense either, but it should hopefully be a useful comment. Also, since I've not gotten to the Odyssey 2.2 yet, I'm also going to leave the comment that this is the perfect place for contrasting the mechanical aspects of the ship being destroyed by the unnatural plants.   " its constant bath of radiation"
Constant bath is a strange phrase to me. I feel like you were going for "bathing in the radiation." Bath works on its own, but if you want constant you should try focusing on motion more than the image of a stagnant body of water.   "This could be inferred"
What is "this?" You were talking about the fact it's soft despite having a harder outer layer. However, that's not a subject in the previous sentence. It's a statement. You need to correlate it to a subject, stating something like "Stained red from the sap, the flora has a soft texture regardless of the extreme density of the outer layer. This discrepancy could be related to..." Something more like that fixes the problem.   "giving it an almost glowing white color."
I can't really help here, but I can point out the fact that "almost glowing" is a rather cliché phrase that doesn't really give a good image. Leaning into the glow and, instead, describe it based on the other qualities the plant has.   "zero gravity environment of the void."
You use the term "void" a lot. Intermixing other terms like space or vacuum to keep the reader from noticing the repetition.   I may have missed something, so can you explain to me how it continues to survive? I can understand how it works. Logically, as the plant grew, it would naturally be releasing material it cannot use. Even with the crew being held captive to produce carbon dioxide, eventually, the water vapor and other nutrients would be fully depleted. I probably missed some scientific explanation of how it controls the release of material and the like, but this bit kind of confused me.   Wow. You have some great scientific words like vestigiality. I had to google that one.   I have no idea what the image on the right of the genetic modification section is of. It looks like broken read glass, but I have no idea how that relates to anything?   ...Oh. It's dormant. Did you mention that before? Or was the first mention in the ship logs section? Anyway, that answers my previous question regarding its growth.   Your second quote is, at least while I'm reading, centered. It's a bit weird.   Woah. I definitely wasn't paying enough attention to the Safeharbor Protocols article. I'll need to look into that again because of the whole system where the plant grows with the mention of the title(great tie-in to explain it, by the way). It's a super cool idea.   --   Great article, of course! I really like the fact the article is closely related to Odyssey 2. There's clearly a lot of scientific research that clearly went into the article considering you went ahead and included your works cited. I love the imagery, especially the cover image and last image included. Loving The Void Between! Keep up the incredible work.

While some are cleared up by the end, such as the title issue, but they should be made more clear.   I'm glad you enjoyed it! I apologize for my hastily written build up articles. They weren't exactly on par and need some cleaning but I really liked the idea of this narrative driven worldbuilding to lead into the challenge. Next time, I'll try to be more prepared.

11 Mar, 2021 14:55

Great work, as always! I love the level of detail you go to - it's a very readable balance between encyclopedic detail and mere handwaving. I find it thoroughly immersive. There is only one thing I would like just a bit more information about: where does the plant get its mass? At 4,000km in size, even if you made it 95% water from the nebula, you'd still need tons and tons of carbon - much more than humans could provide on their own. Are there also rocky deposits in the nebula? Was that the reason they selected this particular location? Or am I missing a more obvious explanation?   Otherwise, just beautiful!

Sage Dylonishere123
R. Dylon Elder
11 Mar, 2021 15:30

..... ok so I have to thank. I would assume there were many deposits of rock in the form of debris or asteroids to provide the building blocks but are no longer there. I'm thanking you because this will be added in. I failed to consider that and let the mind wander. I cant believe that with the research done, I failed to consider the law of conservation of mass and energy... you know... one of the fundamental laws of all science XD I shall fix this. Thank you so much for pointing that out. Likely the plant would anchor itself to these objects and break them down. But now, since there are none around or at least within reach, it remains dormant?

11 Mar, 2021 17:08

I do that *all the time* so I feel like I'm in good company now! I think it's perfectly believable that the researchers would have selected Azrael1 because it has a large water source and high carbon deposits. Perhaps they even intended to mine those deposits themselves, but Pale Horse took matters into its own tendrils and now all that remains are small, perforated chunks of silicates with all the goodies sucked out.

Sage Dylonishere123
R. Dylon Elder
11 Mar, 2021 18:04

That is perfect! Thanks so much. Also yes, originally they did indeed choose the location for the water source, though it wasnt supposed to be so large. The carbon would be a perfect addition and cleans up the problem. Two birds, one stone. Also I'm glad I'm not the only one who makes the mistake XD

I can imagine that the Pale Horse project could become quite the delicacy among folks who have more money than sense; just don't eat above the recommended dose. I imagine it tastes sweet, so maybe pour some sap over your ice cream like chocolate sauce? (;   Now, a plant imbued with the safe harbor protocols is a rather interesting thing. I wonder if it can be ordered to destroy itself? I wonder if someone ought to try...   The safeharbor protocols are somewhat of a mystery. Tell me; as the author, do you know exactly how the protocols were implemented, and is it gonna be important for the story moving forward?

Sage Dylonishere123
R. Dylon Elder
13 Mar, 2021 22:47

Hmmm I imagined it tasting like a sweet floral tea, almost, but with the right ice cream that sounds like an interesting expirience. They actually tried to make it destroy itself, but I't doesnt have the means of doing so. It twitched and not much else. The only protocol it responds to is "behold a pale horse."     As far as how their implemented, that's tricky. Theres no technology that could do it in the modern day. At least not in the way the protocols work. Voice command is one thing, but the protocols are fundamentally woven in the programming. They cant even figure out how the protocols are represented in code. My best guess, at least when it comes to how I've written it, is it has something to do with quantum encryption. And other functions of quantum computing. However, I've intentionally left the details out. I consider old earth to be just as alien as The Others, so their tech may not always follow the same rules as humanity does. I'll reveal some details about the inner workings of the protocols, but likely not in a super impactful way. I like to think of it like a super lightweight and contextual magic system for humans.

I love the way you've presented your article as an investigation! All the scientific details in this article are great and sounds plausible. The article itself looks very pretty and is easy to read despite having lots of text.   A few notes I took while reading:   " science cruisers meant to research what was considered too dangerous to explore so close to home." The use of "explore" here made me doubt whether the ships would explore something dangerous that was already existing in some far away corner of space or if they would find a far away corner of space to start doing dangerous experiments.   "no wind and fauna to assist in reproduction by spreading seeds" the way you've formulated that it reads as of the tree is helping the insects reproduce by spreading their seeds rather than the other way around.   The biology of your plant is very interesting, as well as how it is adapted to survive in space. And as a biologist I loved the section on genetics XD   "This explains explains the problems that come from high quantities of consumption." Explains is repeated twice.   " The drone raised its air," I'm guessing you mean "blade" here.   "Even The cells of the plant back this up." You have a wrong capitalisation here.

I love just the idea of this plant. What a cool, creepy, and interesting discovery. I can only imagine what it looks like, it has a sort of bittersweet and foreboding beauty, I think.

Hi Dylon!   Your article is visually incredible. From your cover and background images and subtle glow of your texts to your font selection and overall layout, it all suits the article. I had a mildly unnerving feeling near immediately (the combination of the Pale Horse plaque and fleshy, roots) that I was happy to see pay off as I continued to read.   I have some rather miniscule edits that you may want to consider but it's all ignorable:   -Your opening quote would benefit from adding some line breaks between your spoken text and the other content. There are a few orphan words (e.g. body.) that could be cleaned up as well. -I personally prefer using commas to break up numbers (e.g. 4,000 Km), the "K" in "km" should be lowercase, and "The" shouldn't be capitalized in ship names. -In the analysis box, I'd separate 6g and 1L into 6 g and 1 L. -I would add the small BBcode to your note at the end of your sample box, left justify it instead of center, and expand the Archivist article link to include "Note" just from a visual perspective. Oxygen should be capitalized or changed to O2 to align with CO2 (where I'd also use the sub BBcode). -From a 'technical' perspective, the leaves should be black if they're absorbing all wavelengths of visual light but I honestly prefer the multi-colour description. -"Even The cells" shouldn't be capitalized in the very last paragraph of the article.   Regardless of my suggestions, I thoroughly enjoyed your article. Keep making wonderful content!

I like that people tried so eagerly to perfect the plant that they accidently made it dangerous. The ways in which it adapted to life in the void are really fascinating, and the description of its appearance sounds really beautiful. One thing that I was not expecting is that the plant responds to the Safe Harbor protocols - this adds a nice layer of mystery to it.
