Chapter 01 - History in the Making In a strange, far-off corner of the galaxy, there exists a land... The Land of Ooo. This plane of existence is unique, full of many things some consider impossible - Living diamonds within crystalline structures, sugar-molecule-based lifeforms with their own civilization, and mysterious beings with control over the ice. However, for the most part, the inhabitants of Ooo are unaware of any life beyond their solar system, the only exception being a strange, space-like plane known simply as 'Lumpy Space.' However, one day, a few people were convinced otherwise... --- In the realm of the sugar-based lifeforms known as the Candy Kingdom, a massive crystalline structure had been erected. "King Popperrocks, we are ready to begin," A being similar in appearance to a piece of Candy Corn told the current ruler of the realm, a tall, muscular being with red skin, and a strange, golden crown. "It's begun," The king spoke, "Our scientific mission to locate life beyond Ooo. Set the AstroNuts aboard the ship." In the structure, Peanut Aldrin and Walnut Armstrong, people who looked like nuts, sat in the cockpit, ready. "10..." A voice resonated throughout the kingdom, "9... 8..." "Father," A soft voice sounded out, "What is happening?" "That, Princess Bubblegum," The king addressed the voice, belonging to a young girl with pink skin and hot-pink hair, "Is our key to answering the question of life being elsewhere outside of Ooo or Lumpy Space. It is going to the moon to investigate what might be out there..." "4... 3... 2..." The voice continued, "1. Engage Liftoff Procedure!" The structure lifted on a pillar of fire, streaking towards the moon. "Wow... is that magic?" Bubblegum asked. "It... is science," The kind replied. --- Landing the ship upon the moon, the AstroNuts placed on themselves suits designed to tolerate low-air environments, and investigated the surface. "Seems... dull," Aldrin noted, "Lifeless." "This is one small step for us," Armstrong noted, "One giant leap for Ooo-kind." "Yeah, but one giant step in the dumbest... direction... possible?" Aldrin turned to see something that surprised him. 'What're you seeing, Aldrin?' The king's voice spoke. "My lord..." Aldrin noted, "The moon appears to be devoid of life... but SOMETHING was here..." 'What?' "I'm seeing a giant, crashed spaceship," Aldrin noted, "Armstrong and I are going to check it out." Both of them walked over, noting the low gravity the moon had. "Wow, that is one giant flippin' ship," Armstrong stepped on a pile of the moondust, which was propelled away. Looking down, Armstrong raised an eyebrow. "What?" Aldrin landed next to him. "I think I'm standing on someone's face," Armstrong noted, "This is awesome!" "My god..." Aldrin looked around, "There are more of these metal men lying around. It's like a kingdom of metal is somewhere in Ooo." "No," Armstrong noted, "These things aren't from Ooo." 'I must ask,' The king's voice came in, 'Are we alone in the universe?' "No sir," Aldrin noted, "We're not alone." Little did they know that a little light flicked on in the ship... and that light was an EYE... --- TO BE CONTINUED... AUTHOR'S NOTES: Yes, I actually wrote Transformers mixed with Adventure Time.
