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!
Newest Chapter: An unexpected schedule change pops up. It's good news for Mia, but at the expense of someone else.
The captain drove off, leaving the others behind. Everyone else enjoyed their meal outside, with Emil opening the bed of the truck so people could sit there. Mia opted to stand to the side of it instead. Aiden leaned against the other side.
He handed a bag to Jun. “Here’s yours.”

Mia continued sipping on her milkshake while the rest of the group ate. Occasionally someone would ask her how she liked Earth so far, but the conversation went so many places at once that no one had the time to barrage her with questions. They were too busy laughing and joking around.
Spending time with people she didn’t completely hate, not saddled with anyone else’s responsibilities, and doing so under a gentle breeze and the summer sun, Mia found herself having fun. Was this living the Earth Girl lifestyle or just how it felt to not miss out on a social life? She couldn’t know, but it felt so pleasant it started to scare her. When would it all go wrong?
