Novel: The Celestion-5 is set to be humanity's first manned ship to Neptune. For such an important journey, you'd think some care would be put into choosing the crew, but no! It was mostly random selection. Half of the crew are rookies fresh out of high school, and the other half are still absurdly young. This group of assorted goofballs will have to band together to survive the journey to Neptune and back. Updates daily at 9:00AM PST!
New Chapter: Mia gets the opportunity of a lifetime to experience Earth! But first, she and her crew must wander through the spaceport. It'd be boring if not for getting to see the cost of fame in action. (Both parts of this chapter are uploaded already, I just thought it was silly to post them both here when you'd need the context of the first to understand the rest.)
“Miaaaa!” Roxie ran over to her with a tube of something in hand. “You are very pale and have literally never seen the sun. It’s first priority that your skin is protected!”
Mia let Roxie squirt sunscreen into her hands, not bringing up the fact that the sun still could be seen from the Moon, because it was nothing like this. This time, Mia could feel it. Was this just normal to everyone else?
“Everyone’s going to be watching your reactions! Just like when I first went to space.” Leon smiled as if that was in any way comforting. Maybe to him.
“You! Next!” Roxie thrust the bottle in his hands
“Yeah, you’re the star today, Mia!” Emil stretched. “There’s really no place like Earth, so watching you experience it all should be fun for everyone.” He turned to his brother. “Can’t we just stay here until the new guy shows up? It’ll only be a week or so, and we got nothin’ else to do.”
“That would disrupt the spaceport.” responded Captain Galhardo, walking ahead of the rest. “We’re just here to pick up a fuel shipment from the nearby base.”
