    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

    “I don’t know how to tell you this, Mindy; but your career has taken an unexpected turn into major relevance; and I’ve waited almost two years for you to notice.” Vincent said with a smile.

    Mindy Park wasn't part of the mission, exactly. But she noticed something unusual on her screen one night, and became a minor footnote in the history books.

    For the Ares III Crew, she became much more; because at NASA, First Is Forever.

    Mark/Mindy ship, only if you want it to be; but a friendship fic to be sure.

    Summary

    “Hey Hermes!” The ambient suspicion level in the Rec ratcheted up significantly. Kapoor was disturbingly cheerful. “We’ve sent you some mission updates in the data dump, but Mitch and I wanted to personally let you know—” Mitch visibly rolled his eyes in the background. “—That thanks to some…strong suggestions from the White House, and on Annie and Director Sanders’ recommendation, we’ve started releasing Watney’s Mars logs to the public.”

    Summary

    In the brief moment that Mark Watney has time to react, he is only backing away. Chris Beck shouts out commands relevant to the medical crisis unfolding before them and Lewis and Vogel appear to move in slow motion as they push Martinez back onto the table. Watney feels morbid for thinking it, but he’s wondering where the guy’s God is. Rick’s chest morphs and appears to convex through his shirt, a red splatter seeping through along with his screams that seem to dip through the thick material of the Hab and extend out into the thin atmosphere of Mars.

    In that moment, the crew is entirely alone. Houston cannot tell them what to do or what’s going wrong, no one else is there to give a second opinion. In that moment, the Ares III crew witnesses the horrors of alien life unfolding only one planet away from their home.
