This is unedited RAW, straight from whatever project I happen to be typing away on. I definitely have a goal in mind, and this (in some edited form) should see the light of day this time next year.
X dragged behind her friends, This isn’t exactly what I meant when I said I wanted to celebrate Chrissmis.
“What you don’t want to see nude males in zero G?” Zora flopped her finger around mimicking humanoid -male genitalia in no gravity.
“But this is how we celebrate.” Yaz whined.“How is your Chrissmis different?” X looked up into her friend’s large eyes. Yaz blinked slowly waiting for an explanation.
“It’s an old earth celebration, where you get together with friends and family. It’s quiet, and there is a lot of food.” X explained.
“And they burn trees right?” Zora asked.
“I don’t exactly know, I think it’s just a log. I read about it once and it sounded like fun.”
“Logs are trees.” Zora muttered.
“You burn trees?” Yaz blinked in amazement
“No, we don’t burn trees. Besides, I seriously doubt they would let us do that here.” X looked up as Asteroid Station Fergus extended thousands of feet above them, until it anchored again to a second asteroid.
Artificial grav fields and manufactured atmosphere, no, large open flames would not be a good idea.
