I really enjoyed writing this one because there was a chance to explore really obvious queerness but not make it the whole point of the story. I also enjoyed what the protagonists' relationship turned out to feel like for me, how they interacted, and how they dealt with the huge upheaval in their lives knowing they were going into space and never coming home. It also kind of felt like they were already in their own cocoon before that was more literal for them--like they always naturally had an "us" that worked for them, and their chemistry was special for me. And their friend who wouldn't shut up about the Zodiac was fun to write.
