Rosalind, fleeing from the Martian Third City Dome Watch-house where she was being held on suspicion of being a pickpocket, finds herself in the company of one Mal Sindi, ex pilot. Together they commandeer a small cargo shuttle craft and spend an exciting year holding up and robbing spaceships on the Mars Earth Supply route. One day Mal asks her to do an EVA spacewalk to check the locks on the hold. While she is outside the craft he releases her lifeline and she floats away into space. Furious at first, she realises she is facing certain death when her oxygen runs out.
But strangely this does not occur: for suddenly she finds herself in the middle of a verdant forest........for she has been taken by The Io Effect

Look what I found! My old avatar from Ancient sites *wipes away a sentimental tear....*
A rather small hippo that lives in your homes,in your closets ,
under your beds,under your dressers.
They nest with bits of fluff ,old socks and other small fluffy stuff.
They come out only at night,to forage for food.
The Little hippo only eats crumbs,bits of crackers chips bread,
but its fav is peanut butter.They even like to play in it just like mud.
They only grow 6 inchs in height
A present from Desertdweller.
This home was briefly haunted by Luna Claire Qu'Hai
This is for just plodding along day after day doing a bit here, helping out there, staying around...it's a pleasure folks
