At the Research Center for Deep Sea Research and Inter-species Communication Observatory, we built a translation machine, to be able to speak with the Avanc. We were very proud. As it turned out, The Avanc was utterly disinterested in talking to any of the scientists.
One of the scientists' kids however, Aaron, aged 7, would talk with it for hours.
We had to give Aaron a position on the research team eventually, just to keep our funding.
