Chapter 01 of 10
Planet: Gliese 436b
Unique trait: Made of exotic "always-on-fire" ice that never melts due to high pressures.
Cyan stopped counting her age at around 270, hoping to find peace in death. She put on her favorite dress and hitchhiked all the way to Gliese 436b to spend her last moments walking on the beautifully scorching ice.
Unfortunately, the immense pressures and destructive temperatures felt like nothing but pleasant tingles. Extremophiles don’t die easily.
Chapter 02 of 10
Planet: Io, Saturn’s satellite
Unique trait: Most volcanically active body in the Solar system
“Wait up!” Cyan yelled out as she ran towards the ship. They took off to Io where she muttered a quick goodbye and went on to spend her last moments kayaking and diving in lava.
“Here goes nothing”.
Leap, splash, plunge.
Time passed, and again nothing happened. Still alive and well, she silently went back to the ship asking to hitch yet another ride.
Chapter 03 of 10
Unique trait: 7 deadly lakes
“Stop or I’ll blaze you” the silhouettes in the distance warned. Mars was abandoned after the lakes turned deadly, so it’s now a home to thieves.
“You’d do me a favor” Cyan shouted and walked right through the flames towards the lake. They were taken aback and let her be.
She dived in. Silence. The silhouettes were observing intently. Minutes passed. She re-emerged unscathed, muttering “Bummer”. They ran the hell out of there.
Chapter 04 of 10
Planet: Triton, Neptune’s satellite
Unique trait: Best view in the Solar System
“If Mars’ lakes won’t kill me then Triton’s will”, Cyan was telling herself before an exotc swim in a nitrogen lake. Her skin lost sensation, pins and needles washed over her in waves, breathing became harder and everything went dark.
Neptune was unleashing a loud cyan-colored glow, as if calling her name. She opened her eyes and got mildly angry at it upon realizing she’s still alive.
