Star-Crossed Romance has been together for a year now. How wonderful is that? :D
To that end, we’re celebrating our first year anniversary with a party! My assignment was to find a hall for all our guests.
This sounds simple but when you consider the various life forms, eating requirements, and climate requirements – well, let’s just say it isn’t as easy as it sounds.
The first place I looked at was a hall on the edge of a strato-city. Yep, way up there in the clouds. Fantastic view, no doubt of that but I kept seeing a slightly tipsy guest taking a wrong turn and well, that first step could be a killer. We could ask for a special force field to be erected on the palisades and balconies near the hall to ensure the safety of our guests but that’s going to cost extra.
The next place I checked was a gorgeous hall in the middle of an ocean. Literally. About two miles deep. Again, the view beyond the force field was fantastic! Schools of fish playing on the oceanic floor, most of them glow since it’s quite dark down there. There were even thermal pools nearby for the adventurous to visit...if they had the proper gear. The only real problem I found was the aforementioned lack of sunlight. Some of our guests, (those whose DNA produces chlorophyll rather than pigment might be a little put off).
My next stop was a subterranean hall. Quite lovely really. And the temperature was a constant (though just a bit cool) 68 degrees Fahrenheit. But we still have the ‘sunlight’ problem though I’ve been told that special lamps can help alleviate that for both the aquatic hall and this place. The extra cost for these lamps isn’t quite as much as the costs for the force fields on the strato-city hall.
So I’m at a quandary. Any one of these halls would be fantastic for our party. I need help to decide which one to use so please comment this article and vote for your favorite.
