The Alnoans are a reclusive species, living on a small, faraway planet, at the edge of explored space.

Though their life is in no way a Utopia, their technological prowess has allowed them to sidestep common problems such as disease or famine, enabling them a relatively fulfilling lifestyle, with the occasional environmental accident.

But now, four young Alnoans discover a dark secret that has been slumbering just below the surface for eons, buried and forgotten, threatening not just their planet, but all lifeforms in the cosmos.

With the fate of the universe at stake, and an intergalactic quest of epic proportions waiting to be fulfilled, will this group of friends be able to stand against the darkness, or will they fall like so many before them?

Fancy meeting you here

A/N: This story was derived from a fanfic I wrote a long time ago (which no one will ever find if I have a say in it). I will attempt to actually finish this story and not leave it hanging. Also,
any art in this story is NOT mine. I mostly got it by googling concept art. All the credit goes to the artists. Enjoy.

Warning: there will be a drawing of a wasp like insect in this chapter. I'm writing a warning about this because I know tons of people are very uncomfortable with wasps, bees, and spiders. (Myself
included)

I didn't expect positive feedback so soon. Thank you for reading this story, I'm glad you're enjoying it.
Special thanks to Jay Sims for the words of encouragement.
I'll hopefully be able to put up the next chapter up tommorow.
Also, sorry if the images in this one are a bit messed up. I'll see if I can fix them somehow in the following days.
