Alternate crewmate ideas 

Someone who grew up in Antarctica, at a field base for an ice-cap-restoration megaproject; they’re in a good position to understand and admire Lunar life even as they’re deeply frustrated with its small-scale environmentalism

Alternate crewmate ideas 

(Name TBD), he/him, an Argentinian Jewish guy (maybe trans?) who entered into a patron-client relationship with a Martian magnate to fund his scientific work on Mars’ geologic history (and instantly regretted it)

Show thread

Alternate crewmate ideas 

Jiao Wenliang (he/him), both on the Moon but spends almost all his time on Earth due to chronic medical conditions; lives in Kuala Lumpur’s Lunatown, works as a doctor specializing in offworld adaptations, and holds an extremely romanticized grass-is-greener view of Lunar culture

Patch Notes: On reflection I decided to pull every date from 2200 onward a century forward, since I realized there were no canonical events in that century and while I was going for a Terra Ignota-style feeling of “history moves slower and more cautiously after a global crisis,” it wouldn’t be *that* slow

Mission Critical is COMPLETE!

Read from the beginning here:

The penultimate chapter of Mission Critical is complete! Featuring callbacks to the first Earth chapter, and concluding the grand send-offs to every bit of Earth worldbuilding.

Kuiper realized she was trans thanks to Alexandria porn

I am delighted at realizing that I can have two female characters go on a Lunatown date at "Yuri's Cafe"
