He leads me on lightyears away!
Through astral nights, galactic days…
— Rush, 2112
Dedicated to Jacob Conwell, without whom this would not have been possible, and TyGently, for being both an inspiration throughout the writing of this and without whom this would not have been possible. Redundancy gets a shoutout for acknowledgement of redundancy. FFTransform gets credit for the character of the other space lesbian Alexandra Poole, as does the rest of the SCP RP group for also reading partial drafts of this tale while it was still a foetus.
This is another one of my Pure Feels Tales(tm) alongside A Memorandum. As such, expect some sloppiness and coldpost a la Cyantreuse.
Happy New Belated Christmas Years' Eve.
The theme song for this tale is Jamie xx's Loud Places, because 2112 sounded far too happy.
