With My Conlang, I Would Not Fail, by Sean F. Larson
In all the talking and back and forth talk, my principal said something. Thinking about it now, I am sure that it was just an off-hand comment. But he said, "He is going to have to invent his own language to graduate from high school." and the light bulb went off.
Invent my own language? YES! I'm going to invent my own language! I had no idea anyone had ever done this before. I had taken French, and I understood grammar, but I really had no idea how to create an entire language from scratch.

They went to homebase and unpacked and set up a tent. as they stepped outside they heard a bang. It was an escape pod that had launched and was quickly destabilizing. It was pulling up but not in time. A loud crash sounded as it smashed into the shore, then skidded around before rolling down the slope… and into the water. Fortunately for whoever was inside the flotation activated and kept it from sinking.
