An exquisite torture: this planet revealed and called to our primal natures, it tricked our senses. There was unimaginable, indescribable beauty here. Before us, the sun rose and the landscape was wrenched again from a crystalline frozen shield, the cold penetrating into the planet's core, to an erupting, liquid surface. We couldn’t survive in this world without defences; we had no tools to defend ourselves in the extremes this world produced. Our only hope was to copy how the flora and fauna survived: either buried until the extreme edges had passed or they moved ahead of, or behind, the cycles.
