[Reddit Writing Prompt] Earth only has seasons because it is tilted on its axis. An alien race from a planet without seasons lands on Earth and begins their invasion. What they don’t realize is, they have landed in Russia and winter is coming.
Sound effects: Bloop blop beep (clicks, whirs, and dings).
Analysis: "Slowing and approaching third rock from the sun, Sentinel. Just as we suspected, Sir, the parallels are off. A slight tilt is detected."
Orders: "You know what to do, son. Straighten 'er up."
"So that is how Earth came to be the only planet that sits straight as an arrow in the sky and why it is always springtime and always morning."
"GRANDPA, GRANDPA! Tell the part how the Russian army kicked the alien's lower-waste-disposal-units."
"That is a long story. I will tell you that one another time. Now don't forget to brush your nutrition-grinding-implements before entering your cellular-restoration-chamber.”
“And no stalling. I am wise to your ‘Can I have a receptacle of liquid-anti-dehydration-substance before shut-down’ tactics."
"Now close your visual orbs and I will see you in the always-morning!"
