Very informative and fascinating! Now we know that an actual spring/summer/autumn/winter on Atlacamani is (around, depending on changes due to the orbits and so on) 3,25 years, and that the dry/wet season are ideally both 6,5 years long.

Now, are you someone in a relevant field who could genuinely tell me that this could work in a form of organic chemistry? Because it’s feeling like you are and that it could.
And that’s awesome. I love this sort of thing.
What would it take to get something to process 1-[[1-[(2-amino-6-methyl-4-pyridinyl)methyl]-4-fluoro-4-piperidinyl]carbonyl]-4-[2-(2-pyridinyl)-3h-imidazo[4,5-b]pyridin-3-yl]piperidine as part of one of its cellular processes?
Because my famous backlog, the current MOTF, and the nonexistence of my freetime obviously can't even hope to give me enough to deal with, I have made a simple little map of the major Cisplutonian* bodies in another Solar System, to use for what I might. Sizes should be sorta to scale, at least compared to the star. Compared to eachother? Not so much, I'm afraid, as a lot of the 1 pixel bodies are closer to 4 pixel bodies then other 1 pixelers. Distance is in no way to scale and things are arranged for clarification rather then in their actual positions. I am accepting names for everything presently; herein I am using those issued in my notes.
List of major bodies, discounting moons, left to right:
The Star: Comparable to our Sol, but somewhat cooler and slightly larger.
I: Orbits somewhat closer to Star then Mercury does to Sol. Somewhat denser and smaller then Mercury, primarily composed of Iron and lacking an atmosphere.
II: Falls into to category of exoplanets designated as Chthonian. Formerly a Gas Giant, nudged out of the outer system by Adin in the prehistory of the system. Gas layers have long since burned off, leaving a scorched metallic core of immense size. Spins opposite to the other bodies.
III: Similar to I but larger and rather less dense, follows a slightly erratic orbit due to II.
One: Orbits opposite Two, well within the Goldilocks Zone. Somewhere in size and mass between Earth and Mars, with a covering of liquid water over some 70~% of the surface. Two captured asteroid moons akin to Phobos and Deimos.
Two: Orbits opposite One, well within the Goldilocks Zone. Slightly larger and similar in mass to Earth, with both Water and Oil oceans covering some 45~% of the surface. A single moon captured due to II's entrance, comparable to I in origin.
Three: Orbits on the very edge of the Goldilocks Zone. Made mostly of water in conventional ice forms, with liquid underneath and along the equator. Exotic ices exist in the deeps of the ocean, and they are deep.Several moon asteroids captured from the Belt.
Belt: Similar to OTL's Asteroid Belt, but considerably less massive and with more concentrated pockets of bodies.
Ein: Somewhat smaller then I. Possessing an metallic core and an pockmarked surface of ice, relatively thin. In the midst of an Asteroid Cluster; unknown if any bodies function as moons.
Zwei: Smaller then Ein, but denser and supporting both an thick atmosphere and rings. Very little water. Slightly away from the main body of the Belt.
Adin: Slightly larger then Jupiter, but made of the same stuff. 1 moon of a size larger then I, 5 comparable to the size of Ein, and a further 19~ captured moons and asteroids.
Dva: Akin in composition to Neptune but somewhat smaller. 2 moons comparable in size to I and a further 6~ captured moons and asteroids.
Trei: Somewhat larger then Dva, with a large network of rings supported by 9~ captured moons and asteroids.
Then there are a series of dwarf planets and comets and such and maybe a dead Brown Dwarf way out, akin to our Solar System.
Quick question. Is there a possibility of a world in which the 'land' is composed of a substance toxic to Carbon life but the 'seas' are viscous enough to support the weight of an average carbon lifeform on their surfaces, whilst being much less likely to melt your boots? I supposes those seas would have to be composed of some form of ice or dense carbonate matter; any ideas for possible identities to both substances which are relatively likely in the scheme of things?
I've actually been working on an idea for a carbon-rich solar system around an M1 dwarf star.The life would be on small gas planets(like Neptune/Uranus), which would have oceans of liquid CO2(under the pressures involved). Any other ideas for possible life or planet composition in the solar system would be welcomed.
My own world with Ammonia seas (I wish the picture was mine too, but I'm not quite that good with rendering software).

I like that a lot. Proterozoic microbial life on an Ammonia world would be interesting indeed.
