Novel: Bad press calls for desperate measures. For the Interstellar Forces, sending a small crew to Neptune was the bet they were willing to make - at the risk of losing what little respect they have left (and maybe some lives).
A roll of dice and a lack of options led to the selection of the Celestion-5’s crew, a collection of inexperienced astronauts ranging from space-loving dreamers to cynics only in it for the money.
It’s them against the universe, and their odds are a gamble at best. Learning how to live together can only help. Though with the crew’s pervasive personal problems, that might be the real journey.
New Chapter: Jun and Roxie are on the move, and they won't stop until they find who they're looking for. Okay, maybe stopping at a bar or two is fine, but only for evidence!
A scream from behind pierced through the peace. Jun had no time to react to it before a weight bounced off of their jacket to the tune of clattering and stuttered apologies.
“Fear not, I’ve got you!”
They turned around to see Roxie hauling Angelo up by the waist, spinning him around, and setting him back on the ground.
She patted him on the head. “You are safe now.”
“Th-Thank you…” His voice trailed off in a trembling whisper. Reaching out yet not daring to crouch, he tried to pick up his glasses from the ground. He came so close; his arms just needed to be about three feet longer.
So Jun did it for him. “Here you go.”
“S-Sorry for bumping into you.”
