Hi guys,

There’s a new Jason Crow story, and it’s called Aetheria I’ve just published the first chapter, so go and check it out! Aetheria is a Sci-Fi story. If Sci-Fi isn’t your thing, don’t bother. But then again… It’s a Jason Crow Sci-Fi story, so you know what is going to happen. I won’t give away too much about the plot, but a twin boy and girl (twins again!? Yes, again! It’s my goto kink, so stop bugging me! 😊) head into space with their parents, and the whole galaxy seems against them. Don’t worry! There’s no ‘Danger, Will Robinson!’ in this one.

My inspiration mainly came from ‘The Marian’ and ‘Project Hail Mary’ by Andy Weir. And since I’m a HUGE fan of the Alien franchise (siderant: Why the HELL did they ever make Alien 4!?!), there’s probably a bit to found in there, too. Some might think it’s got a little Avatar in it, but I don’t like these movies that much, so it’s unlikely but not impossible in a Sci-Fi story. Much like every boarding school story has some Harry Potter in it…

But beside all that. I think this story turned out quite nicely. I like the characters, I like the action, and I was really invested in writing it. And this time, I’m actually proud of the result. I didn’t do complicated flashbacks, double storylines, or anything like that. Just straightforward and in my favorite style: first-person, past tense.

This time, I wrote the epilogue right after I was finished. And this story needs an Epilogue for some people, and maybe for all. If you’re happy with the ending, don’t bother with the epilogue. But I agree with that the story needs closure, and there aren’t spoilers or anything in it. I just take a peek into their future. The original ending is on an emotional high, which I think is always a good ending. But it doesn’t tie anything up. So, yeah…

E-o-F helped me out big time again with this one. His ability to fish out the typos and illogical parts, and come up with story ideas and twists is always a HUGE help. Thanks, Ed! Again 😊

Oh, one more thing! My big example, Alex Hawk, wrote a story called ‘In the FLiN‘ back in the day. I used a couple of references to that story in mine. Maybe read that one before you read this one. They’re two completely different and separate stories, but there are some things you might recognize.

You can find the story page here, and I’ll add the new chapters over the coming days.

Let me know what you think! I always like feedback, good and bad!
