Admist the tension of interstellar war and the separation of the Gliese star systems from the Empire, Ryn Ardentai is faced with saving billions of citizens on Earth. However, her task of recruiting the highly decorated soldier Interstellar Fleet Commander Zhang Yixing has become even more challenging in the aftermath of the Battle of the Sun in which the commander was said to have nearly died.

Ryn's hands had clenched tightly. "How likely do you think it is that I'll be successful?"
"There is a very small chance, Ryn."

time brings all things to pass. there are no second chances. there is only this moment, and the next, where everything you want will collide with everything standing in your way. purpose and meaning are not to be found in the laws of nature. it is our job to create them as we journey into the vast emptiness of the universe and seek fellowship among the stars. we are the architects of the future. this is our empire.

"You went to see him again."
Ryn pathetically stifled a whimper, "Because I didn't want to up this bad. I wanted that last sliver of hope to come through—I wanted him to understand how drastically important this is! But, the Empress was right. He is hurt and traumatized and... it's my fault."

Ryn is faced with more than just a challenge of recruiting her crew; she will be faced with unknown territories, unforseen problems, and the lingering tension of the war destroying the Empire during her mission to find a new planet that can sustain human life. However, with the Empress putting all her faith into the young architect, Ryn decides that no matter what, she will not back down.
Not even if it means putting her foot down and putting others in their places. There are lives at stake, and Ryn Ardentai will not see them die off at her own inability to fulfill her responsibility.

“Exodus, you’re all clear for take-off. Be safe out there.”
hello! first of all, thank you for reading. i really appreciate any and all support.
i have a lot of high hopes for this fic, and i truly do believe it will be one of my
best. i haven't really tackled a full sci-fi yixing fic yet, so i wanted to give it a try.
i wanted to really plot this out detail for detail, but i write best just plotting in
my head and getting down on paper afterwards without too much planning, so
if anything seems like a plot hole or issue in the story, i apologize, but i likely
won't address it unless it's a huge problem. i'm not a full-time writer, so
i can't promise frequent updates, either, but i will try my best to keep them coming.
thank you again for reading, and enjoy!
