These two stories will go on, it has taken a while to set the stage.
A new story called 'The Mission Continues' will join those in the Ruby Red Universe. The difference, this new story deals with the formation on a 'private' world organization formed to save humanity. There is inter-action now between 'Life can Get Better' and 'Baby It's Cold Outside'; another maybe, as money and power are a necessary requirement.
Li Wu has finally been able to get a few people serious about space. The next step will be much more difficult, for all must recognize the need for a mass exodus, this planet is doomed.
I had planned on adding the characters from 'They Try Harder' later on, but it is such an integral part of the story forming the order, I thought a tease might be helpful.
