A/N: Okay, so this is my first attempt at a Veronica Mars fanfic. I've seen this type of thing done before, but I wanted to try it out myself. I think the first chapter will be Veronica's POV, but after that it will probably be 3rd person. I'll let you know.

Disclaimer: I don't own Veronica Mars—or anything Veronica Mars related. Man, that's the first time I have ever said that about a show I'm writing about! Usually I have DVDs or SOMETHING!

Mars Has Landed in Neptune

Prologue

Summary: After college, Veronica took off, telling not a soul where she was going. When she returns almost six years later, it takes everybody by surprise.

So here I am, sitting on a plane, going back to Neptune. I haven't been there in almost six years. I haven't talked to anybody from my life in Neptune for almost six years.

Why, you ask, am I going back now? I have no idea whatsoever. All I know is that I quit my job, packed up the entire contents of my apartment, hired someone to drive it all the way across the country, and bought a plane ticket to California.

I'll tell you this: it hasn't been the most fun trip, either. I just cannot seem to get any peace and quiet long enough to take a nap, and I could definitely use one. Moving across the country sure is tiring.

Oh, I think I'm finally going to get a chance to fall asleep!

"Good evening passengers; please fasten your seatbelts; the plane will be landing momentarily at your destination, San Diego." Never mind that thought.

The person next to me was still asleep, but I figured I would just let her sleep. She'd wake up eventually. When I heard the announcement that we could unbuckle our seatbelts and get off the plane, I did so. The girl who was sitting next to me woke up and followed me off.

Once we reached the lobby, I bent down and picked the girl up.

Wait—did I not mention that the girl is my five-year-old daughter? Oops. Yup, that's my daughter. Her name is Leslie Tara Mars and she's my world. The whole town is going to have their socks knocked off when they find out there's another Mars. Especially Dad and him.

A/N: So that's the prologue. What do you think? I will have the next chapter up soon because I have this fresh idea in my mind and it needs to be written down:D
