Why This Must Be Read: 7 times the Ares 3 crew lied to the press on their 1-year anniversary show. This is a fun look at what the crew are up to a year after the end of the movie. Mark and Mindy's chapter, in particular, is ridiculously cute.


Pairing: Beth Johanssen/Chris Beck

Why This Must Be Read: This is a nice slow burn, with stellar characterization. The author takes such great care with building their relationship and with fleshing out their characters. An incredibly satisfying read.

Why This Must Be Read: This is definitely a Beth Johanssen story first and foremost and it is glorious! I love her friendship with/fledgling crush (back in the early days) on Mark, but her relationship with Beck is lovely and sweet, and adds to her story rather than being the center of her story.


Pairing: Melissa Lewis/Mark Watney

Why This Must Be Read: An AU where Melissa Lewis got stranded on Mars with Mark Watney. Ohhhhhhhhh my GOD. This story consumed my LIFE. Everything about Melissa and Mark's co-dependent relationship, and the PINING, and the slowest burning of UST EVER was JUST. SO GOOD FOR ME. The author doesn't shy away from the messiness of the situation, especially with Melissa's marriage, and while it definitely sucks and is incredibly heartbreaking for everyone involved, the author treated everyone as fairly as possible and no one gets demonized in this story. There's also 2 more stories in this series which are incredibly hot.


Mods can I have tags for Mindy Park/Mark Watney and Beth Johanssen/Chris Beck?
