This is Anna: annaonthemoon.
I like her; she has this friendly earnestness about her and loves to travel a lot, as do I. (In my dreams. Not sooo much in real life, though; I'd be completely content with a teleporter but for some reason they still haven't invented one yet. Really, how many more centuries will it take them?)
The reason I got here so late is because I needed to visit Anna for our interview. Only my spaceship is one of the older vehicles, not as fast as the modern blink-of-an-eye traveler units at all.
So, she lives in one the covered mooncities. They are creating a real atmosphere there, too, but until they're really sure it all works properly and doesn't just randomly explode into nothingness like it did on Mars they'll have these nice glassy domes covering their cities. … Being new to the moon I didn't figure out how to get in through the dome for a few hours, too. (And no interweb connection to look it up. Whoops.) … Well, now I know!
I followed her tweets through the city but lost her at one the way too many travel stations. … Sorry. No interview today. I guess my ship really is too slow for anything but cruises; it can't be anywhere on time.
There hasn't been a new update so she either went underground or traveled back to Earth. Or maybe even Venus? It would take ages for me to reach it! I know that because I once or twice was there in my childhood; it took us nearly the whole holidays to reach Venus. I remember it as the jungle planet. Everything was jungle! … Honestly? I prefer Earth.
Anyway. She's really nice, I know that. Anybody who's called 'Anna' must be a lovely person. I'll catch up with her later in Idolland, though. Meanwhile allow me to explore the moony mountains until I have to leave again in my uncommonly slow spaceboat. I hear they managed to clear out the last of the dragons' nests. I would hate getting stung by them while being this far away from home.
This is Anna: annaonthemoon.
I am so sorry we didn't get a chance to meet on your visit to the moon, but I hope you enjoyed your stay! The signal on my XK-6803 doesn't seem to work properly while travelling between cities on the monorail, so I must have just missed you!
There you are! Lovely to finally meet you. :)
I'm really sorry, I should have called beforehand. But thanks to my snail-paced space boat we'd probably have missed each other anyway. I knew it was old, but I honestly didn't expect it to bit this slow.
Here, have a rose! <3
I don't know if I'd willingly go on a teleporter, but I'd love the use of one to move heavy objects around! So if you find one, let me know.
Oh, for heavy object you'd just need a gravity nullifier! I think I have one lying around that I don't need; I'll send you one when I find it!

Please do! As the mother of a 35.5-pound toddler who still thinks he should be carried, there are many times it would come in handy.
I do hope you'll keep us updated on further travels (and travails, as the case may be! Pesky slow ships!) and meetings with interesting people, like Anna! You can learn so much about a person from their home, though, and from the sound of it, the moon is a fitting environment for Anna. :)
It seems that every environment is quite fitting for her. She's an amazing traveller, I've no idea how she does all these travels. Probably by moving backwards in time somehow as well.
I definetely can learn a thing or ten from her.
Thank you for your kind comment! I will definetely try to keep everyone updated; hopefully I won't have to move through time for that, too.
This is a lovely spaceplace you've created here, and quite a fun entry, despite having missed her. :)
Thank you! :)
I like the ship, too; it has atmosphere and such. Not as sterily and blinky as the hypermodern ones. Yet it's way too slow for our fast-paced times...
It was enjoyable to imagine all your travels, slow spaceship be darned! Anna is gentle and I will be so happy to read her again. You sound pretty interesting too!:)
This was very cute! I hope you can get your space oat upgraded to a newer model soon!
