Author's Notes: Idek where this idea came from. Some random conversation with my sister and The BFF about the end of the world and then someone declared that if meteors were actually going to destroy Earth, Neil deGrasse Tyson would save us. Before I knew it, I was writing this fic, completely in line with any standard SyFy channel original movie. It’s my longest piece of fan-fiction to date. A lot of this story even surprised me. I actually went back and added some standard SyFy movie channel actors to this piece, because it’s not a SyFy movie without them. And I had to like research science stuff for this story, though only a little, because again, SyFy channel standards of science. Also I read Neil’s entire Wikipedia entry, which seriously, go read it. I think I am in love with this man now. Do you know he is practiced in four different styles of dance? Well, he is.
Date Written: May - December, 2012

Disclaimer: None of these people/characters/movies/TV shows belong to me. Nor does the SyFy channel. This story and the awesome ideas herein, however, do.
Dedication: This one’s for liptonrm, because you deserve all the cheesy SyFy channel movies in your honor and of course, because of your undying love for the man himself, Neil deGrasse Tyson.

It's posted, at last! I was crazy nervous to post this for some reason but I think it all looks quite nice on my journal. I feel all accomplished now. ;)

I LOVE all of the covers your sister made.

Actually, I made all the art. My sister just beta'd it - if art betaing is a thing you can do - by, you know, me constantly calling her into my room and demanding she give me her opinion on how eveything looked and what I should change.

The Podfic is all her though!

no shit! GO YOU! (I guess my mind confused 'making podfic' for 'making art.' My mind is dumb like that, sometimes.)

It's cool, I still took the compliment! ;)

Hey, I want to rec your story - can I use one of the art pieces in my post? If yes, I'll go back and edit the art in later.

Dude, thank you for reccing! (and for the beta, even though I've already said that before!) Knock yourself out on using any of the art (it turned out pretty wicked cool actually). Also, side note, I am typing this reply on my new IPad! (shut up, I'm not a dork - oh wait, yes I am). Off to visit the grandparents now! /fist bump/

My pleasure! And thanks, I'll do that.

Yep, dork, but so what? Have a great visit! *fist bump*
