Decidedly Sew has discovered the sweetest aliens of all! Here, I'll let them tell you all about it:
"Ermies are cuddly alien creatures so named because of the "Ermergerd" reaction they get from the people who stumble across them. Ermies lived peacefully on a fluffy planet where they could hug all day long, but then the evil Lord Platonic came and defeated the King of hugs, forcing them into a miserable life without them. Desperate, the parents of the Ermies sent their children in a cozy spaceship, off to a place where they knew there could be a lot of hugs for their little ones, and so they ended up here."
