to fly to starry skies

Two small neighborhood houses in a suburban town that are placed directly next to each other house two young kids-Daisy and Mars. Daisy and Mars connect over their dreams of being astronauts, and over their love for the one astronaut on the Demeter Mission that their parents won’t stop talking about- Aries Kennedy. Their parents keep saying the word “transgender” and Daisy and Mars don’t quite know what it means, but do know that when they see Aries on TV, that they want to be exactly like them. 

Or, two trans kids swap names and become the best of friends, and send a letter to their favorite astronaut, the first non-binary person on a moon mission.
