    Summary

    Maura Watney was something of an urban legend at NASA. Commander of the Ares I mission, Maura was the first human to set foot on another planet. She heard names like Neil Armstrong and smirked. She was on her way to being the most famous astronaut in history, and she was determined to bring her brother along for the ride. She recommended Mark to Vincent Kapoor. She helped him get on the Ares III mission to Mars.

    Her brother was stuck on Mars because of her, and she was determined to bring him home.

    After all, if he was the first human to die on another planet that would thoroughly steal her thunder; and she couldn’t have that.

    Summary

    The path to space travel is never simple. While it's easy to focus on the grand achievements of Ares 1 or the near-disasters of Ares 3, there's much more to life than these missions. Even the closest of bonds between astronauts had to start somewhere.

    A collection of one-shots based around The Martian. Pre-canon, post-canon, and during canon stories are. Mostly made to centralize where I put all my one-shots for this fandom.

    Last Chapters:

    3 - Watney reflects after the failure of Iris.

    2 - Lewis and Watney go bowling, and Watney makes a decision that's not terribly good.

    1 - Watney meets Johanssen for the first time, with Beck and Martinez at the sidelines.

    Summary

    Martinez enters the sick bay. “Oh, shit,” he says. “Uhhhhhh, Beck, we’ve got a situation!”

    “Mrow,” Mark says, felinely.

    -

    Mark turns into a cat on the way back to Earth. It’s not the worst time it could’ve happened. Kapoor, in one message, outright forbid Mark to turn into a cat on Mars, because apparently everybody was worried it’d happen then he’d die because he wouldn’t have thumbs for a month.

    Summary

    “...Mark Watney is dead. When a storm forces the Ares 3 mission to make an emergency evacuation, the botanist is hit by debris which kills him instantly. The world will mourn and we at NASA will continue to improve and advance our technology to minimize the amount of risk our astronauts face in space. What happened was an unfortunate accident and we hope to avoid another event...”

    Meanwhile, approximately 225 million kilometers away, Mark Watney, very not dead and very much alive, is waiting on a planet of rust for a rescue that might not even come but we don’t think about that because it will come. (Right?)

    Four years is a long time away though. At least there’s a bunch of mixtapes to listen to when he gets bored. Disco, baby!

    Yay…

    I’m going to die.

    Summary

    This is the last scene of Everything After and I really like it, but I don't think I'm ever going to complete it, so here it is for you to enjoy. Obviously not going to be as amazing on it's own, but better that than languish on my computer.
