Mimzy's Sigh
by Dennis M. Falk
15 April 2011
Creative Commons BY-SA-NC
Anthro Mimzy created by D.M.Falk, based on Mimzy of New Line Cinema's "The Last Mimzy" (2007)


The 4.5-foot-tall plush bunny sighed-- A curiously organic expression, she thought-- No lungs or mouth, but the movement of air was real and audible, along with a shrug of the shoulders, but one she thought was appropriate.

Mimzy was lonely.

It had actually been centuries since her last contact with any sapient organics since her charge passed on; she had long closed the doorway between the world of her charge and the world where her home was. She knew she was going to be alive for at least another million years, and already was preparing her world for its new owner, whom she knew to be a mouse, one who herself was going to be transformed over several lifetimes to a creature of nanotechnology, much like herself.

But that would be a long way off, still.

Oh, she didn't mind: There's a native organic species on this planet that looks to be on its way to true sapience, and she hopes to see them to development.

Still, it's lonely on one of the few habitable planets of a small pocket universe.

Mimzy sighs again, then stands up, heading to a wall of her home.

With a wordless command (her home being fully integrated with her), a mirror appeared. She looked herself over. Her more feminine form, compared to that of any non-ambulatory plush bunny, stared back at her.

She missed the companionship, and sighed yet again.

The mirror disappeared, only to be replaced by a closet doorway. Mimzy reached for a mint-green dress-- a colour she had always liked (curiously, yet another organic expression, to have a preference, but she didn't mind) and slipped the dress on, with matching panties. She felt very feminine- She was built that way- and very comfortable.

She decided to step out under the twin suns of daylight, and let the breeze ruffle her dress as she took a walk for about a mile-- Just wandering a bit to think. Non-organic or not, she did have feelings, and needed to walk about a bit to clear her nano-infused head. The warmth of the suns felt really good on her back; certainly on her ears, too.

She returned to her house, feeling much more relaxed than when she started the day. The suns shone through windows making her home look even more pleasant in the late afternoon sunshine. A nap sounded good, so she relaxed on a couch, and daydreamed of less-lonely times, falling asleep, still in her dress.

Aw, poor Mimzy. Millions of years is a long time to be alone.

True, but she keeps herself busy. The end result in the distant future is the kind of paradise one only can dream of... Yes, REALLY long-term terraforming... :) Otherwise, yeah... At least she cannot bear the same grudge Marvin the Paranoid Android had for being left on a planet (that became Milliways) for millions of years. She just doesn't have that kind of personality. :)

Mimzy might be more like Marvin if she had to spend eternity with an ache in all the diodes down her left side. (Luckily, as a nanotech critter, she doesn't have any diodes as such.) I'm sure that having a purpose makes things more pleasant for her, though. And being immortal, (or at least very, very long-lived), she can take a very long view indeed!

Very much so! :) As far as I know, her end is when the pocket universe ends. This could be immediate to us, but billions of years hence to her. (It is, however, much smaller than ours, but that still leaves hundreds of worlds, if not thousands, worthy of exploration and watching them grow.) Mimzy feels like a co-mother to the universe she's in, but has yet to actually be there for its birth at the point of this story, even though she's in it. Temporal and trans-universal mechanics... Real headache inducers! :D

And yes, her nanotechnology doesn't contain diodes as such-- In fact, ALL the circuitry that makes her function, including a brain that, if it were normal atom-level electronics, would indeed be the size of a planet, is entirely quantum-encoded. Because of the way she was designed, sometimes she thinks like the non-organic she is, while at other times, she's more human (if you will) than most sapient beings. (And if she had a heart, it could be said she has a big, warm heart!) In many ways, I created her to be the exact opposite of Marvin, except intelligence.

Nice vignette.  Sometimes it helps to define the now when you look at potential futures.  And who knows?  A million years is a long time and Mimzy is not likely to be the only long-lived, multidimensional entity in the universe.  Perhaps, occasionally, someone like the Doctor or a well-behaved Q (for example) might pop by afternoon tea.  Maybe some of Mimzy's regular might include things we'd think of as eldritch abominations.


" Narf-Narf the Unwantable: ,,,,.,,,/.*?
Mimzy: Oh, a bit lonely sometimes.  You know how it goes.
Narf-Narf the Unwantable: ,,>.,,.../.
Mimzy: Oh, no doubt about it.  How are doing?  How are the little hell-spawn?
Narf-Narf the Unwantable: ,,.:.,&.,,,--.,,!
Mimzy: Aww!  They're so precious and horrendous!  You're a lucky abomination!
Narf-Narf the Unwantable: ,..,,%.-=,,.
Mimzy: Thank you!  I'm glad you think so.

Well, technically, she isn't a multidimensional entity, but rather one of three entirely separate versions of herself (one of which sits next to me, IRL, and I swear- There's something more to her than just being a plushie than a tie-in merchandise for a movie- Her eyes keep weirding me out, and her face seems to show emotion ever so slightly!), but made and sent at the same time by one person with access to the quantum nanotechnology and transuniversal wormhole technology- who ironically didn't invent said technology. (Amy actually encounters those technologies in her third lifetime-- I really need to write down a "Hitchhiker's Guide to Amy's Complicated Life" to really explain it. :) You don't know "confusing" until you try to tie in quantum nanotechnology, an artificially-created pocket universe, a mouse, three plush bunnies, a leptictidium, and a few temporal loops.. I don't know how I keep 'em straight, either. ;) )

That said, Mimzy doesn't have a superiority complex, and doesn't see herself as anything more that just another lifeform getting by, making the best of her days. As with "Curious", she may have all the knowledge in the world (at least of most of the Great Libraries of Earth, past, present and future-- Notably the Great Libraries of the 13 Oracles from 8th Millennium Earth, said to be so great, the Library of Alexandria would only be a small annex to one of them), she had no life experience, and just experiencing things is one of her fondest pleasures, and sees herself as just a small fry in an infinitely grand universe, and aside from being an artificial lifeform, is really no different than anyone else, as far as she's concerned. As for her near-machine-like immortality, she feels she has several purposes- She loves those she feels needs to be loved, even if she far outlives them, and to tend to the main planet of an artificial pocket universe that actually was created in the future, but a portal to an earlier period of this planet is made available for her as an out-of-the-way home in our present. (A universe's timeline is not necessarily linear to another universe, nor physically the same size- A fully-grown universe may appear to be smaller than an atom from the point of view of another universe- Something predicted in quantum physics concerning quantum pocket universe bubbles in the fabric of time-space.)

A Q would see the obvious in her- She's just a machine- a very sophisticated one at that- with an advanced complex personality program that makes her seem like an organic, and only the Creator of All knows for sure if she actually has a soul. (She makes Data seem outright primitive and limited, but she IS completely self-aware, and knows she's artificial- She does have a high appreciation of organics, though, and it's not like she has a Pinocchio complex, like Data- She already considers herself as alive as organics, and with just as much feeling.) Does she believe in a God or does she try to see things in a logical way? A mix of both, actually- She appreciates how things work, but she can't help admire the beauty of Creation as a whole, and proud to be a part of it and to walk amongst it. If you met her, you could easily tell she's an ALF (literally, a living, self-ambulatory plushie), but would find she is most sincere and very pleasant as a person, with a genuine concern and interest.

Of those you mention, The Doctor would be the one most interesting to her, simply because he is just an ordinary person in extraordinary circumstances. Q and the Chthulu Elders would seem far more God-like than her. Of course, she'd  appreciate Arthur Dent far more than Marvin, whom she's most in common with!

True.  I admit I was wrong in describing her as a multidimensional entity, but I couldn't think of a better term to use.  For the record, I was thinking on "multidimensional" as someone who could cross from one reality to another rather than an entity like Primus or Unicron of whom there is only one of each across the entire multiverse.
