So this time, I figured I'd give a chatroom-type story a try.

Because, you know, why not?

Mercury burns brightest in the sky ----- you told me it would be so

        hey are you still coming
            to the club party?
            i'm considering skipping

I'm not going. It'll be too loud,
                                                                      and I'm too high-strung.

        if you're not coming
                to the club party tonight,
                i won't go either

Evan, you've been looking
                                                                    forward to this for months.

        well, i was under the impression
               that i'd know somebody there
    It's Space Club. You know
                                                                every single person attending.

        we both know that's a lie.
                ash, the only person there i know
                is you.

       i don't think i'm going, either
                i'm just terrible around people,
                and you know that.
                everybody there terrifies me.

                                                          Then why did you want to go?
        well, you're gonna laugh but
                i heard mercury was
                going to be the brightest
                it's ever been tonight

                                                            Grab your telescope, Evan.
                                                      Meet me in front of your house
                                                   in fifteen minutes. Bring a jacket.

        what are you planning?
                                                     An alibi for missing the party,
                                                   because we're going to need one
                                                        after skipping for stargazing

        ash, you are a saint

        i can't even

Sequel to It turns out Saturn is beautiful after all -- but I've run out of words to describe it 

Honestly, I didn't expect there would be a sequel.
