On Becoming Heroic
by Robert Iannone
It is the story of the twin daughters of a living legend, the Queen of Aerianna. To their delight, they have been given permission to partake in their first solo adventure. They have decided to visit a small planetoid in the Andromeda Galaxy. What they don’t know is that the planetoid is home to the Infinite Requiem of Scientific Insufficiencies – a curious institution dedicated to repurposing failed scientific experiments. It is run by a sentient robot called an ALF Prime.
Their visit doesn’t go quite as planned. The other guests who happen to be visiting are a class of exceptionally bright students from a prestigious academy. One of them is P’yxx, an elfin-like being who teams with our twins to avert a galactic-wide catastrophe caused by a practical joke gone terribly wrong.
