Celebrate Coramor with us in the ‘verse!
A holiday all about love, Coramor is traditionally observed on February 11 and is usually represented by the colors pink and black. It was inspired by the tale of Yuri & Cora, two lovers separated by the collapse of Oretani’s only jump point. Heartbroken, Yuri sent Cora’s parents emotional daily comms chronicling his attempts to find another way into Ortani. On 02/11/2486, he sent a comm that was mostly unintelligible except for “…anything for Cora… amor…” Yuri was never heard from again.
A popular late 25th century vid dramatized the story and inspired people to celebrate love on the day. The vid’s highly romanticized ending has Yuri making it through a jump to Oretani. He reunites with Cora, but his ship is so damaged that the nav data to return them home to the UEE is lost. The vid, titled Coramor, popularized more than the holiday’s name – Yuri’s black ship with pink accents inspired the colors now associated with the holiday. The vid even altered Yuri’s final known words to the now famous phrase, “Anything for my Coramor.”
On Coramor, it’s typical to send romantic comms and gifts to your paramour. Lovers not in the same system often make plans to celebrate together by scheduling romantic trips around the holiday, making Coramor one of the empire’s busiest travel days. Unattached Citizens looking for love often send comms into the vast void of space, addressed to a potential ‘Coramor’ waiting somewhere in the endless black. Those that have lost loved ones often send messages to their departed sweethearts, reflecting upon their time together.
