    Summary

    Space is enormous. Randomly scanning the disused frequencies shouldn't turn anything up, but Kurogane nevertheless picks up a lone voice broadcasting to the stars.

    Suddenly, the large spacefaring vessels had porches. Walkways enclosed in high tech, reinforced glass allowed people to step beyond the slightly-less dubious safety of their ship and into the definitively dubious safety of the catwalks.

    The enormity of the stars holds up a very unforgiving mirror. So many find themselves wanting.

    People went out, of course. Any additional space in the vessels was utilized immediately. But staring up at the stars without the feel of a good solid planet behind you, well. It was no wonder some people went mad, shaken to the very core by their insignificance.

    For others, the enormity is a blessing. A tiny speck in the vastness can be so easily forgotten, ignored.

    Given the size of things out there, how much can you really matter?”

    Fai paused, leaning back from the microphone. Rust coated the edges of the rough panel and partially obscured the glyphs etched around the perimeter. He idly rubbed at it with the corner of his thumb.

    “You matter a whole lot, of course. Who else is going to report if I suddenly stop transmitting?” He rapped his knuckles next to the collar of the speaker panel. “This is the Aphelion Dusk station on the two hundred and fifty second day of our ongoing mission. Current station time is 2100 hours. Stay tuned for tomorrow.”

    - A KuroFai first-meeting story in a fairly space-opera sort of setting, featuring Tomoyo and loneliness as major supporting characters.

    "Given the size of things out there…

    …how much can you really matter?”

    The barely concealed hope in that distant voice - as if not mattering would be the greatest gift - burrowed in deep.
