Synopsis

Plot

What a lovely place the universe is... You stare into the dense mass of stars swirling past as the nearby galaxy spins on its relentless axis. As they swing by in their celestial orbit, they seem close enough to reach for; and so you do. Expecting to fall short, you watch in surprise as your hand slips into their midst. They pass harmlessly from one side of your arm to the other, and continue on their relentless path.

The concentrated whiteness of the galaxy isn't the only thing, though. Other stars swirl by all around, dancing to the sound of a pure violin rendition of Gustav Holst's Planets, lightly played from some unseen speakers. The doleful sound of the planet Neptune deepens the solitary mood.

The universe wasn't always this lonely, though. Your gaze flickers across the vast expanse of the polished, hardwood table before you. There on the other side sits the unfinished drink, collecting water drops according to the natural laws of condensation. Yes, the world is governed by natural laws, and somewhere in those laws it must say something about celebrating your graduation alone.

Well, there's other fish in the sea, but for now, appetite gone, you wave off the waitress before she can ask what you would like. Trying to divert your attention from the empty seat across the table, you mull over some super heroic ways of fulfilling the requirements to finally earn your cape.
