    Summary

    “No matter what, wherever you go, I want to stay with you.”

    The Ares 3 evacuation was the start of many events. The worst emergency that NASA had ever faced. The grandest rescue operation in human history. The most absolute test of the limits of human ingenuity. And even, on a smaller scale, the worst scar that some people had ever experienced in their entire lives.

    But above all, it was a tale about holding on to your friends and never giving up, because that was how miracles were made.

    Summary

    After they pick up Mark, everyone is happy and healthy and safe and we're ready for the credits to roll, right?
    Nope.
    You don't escape a year and a half alone on a planet that is actively trying to kill you without a scratch. Which is exactly what the crew is going to learn when Mark comes down with a terrible fever and the cracks in the facade he's put up begin to show just exactly what Mars did to him.

    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 was 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.

    (On Hiatus as of right now because I need to fix up the plot and my life but I ran out of duck tape so yeah, sorry about that, but I promise to come back with a working compass, alright?)

    Summary

    The first time Mindy Park and Mark Watney meet in person is at a party.

    This is a loose sequel to Interplanetary Voyeur and the Voyee, but other than making some references to it, this story will make sense without reading it first.
