Four The Martian Recs (Beth Johanssen/Chris Beck)  
Fandom: The Martian
Pairing: Beth Johanssen/Chris Beck
Title: Bless Those Tired Eyes
Author: thenewradical
Link: AO3
Rating/Warning(s): Teen. None.
Word Count/WIP?: 4,161. No.
Recced on LiveJournal By: profshallowness

Why This Must Be Read: The summary is:
Johanssen suggests that Beck sleep in her bunk since it's closest to the med bay and Watney.
This goes exactly as well as you would expect.
What ensues is charming, revelling in the gradual progression of the relationship between these nerds in love, of a small crew.

Rating/Warning(s): Mature, none.
Word Count/WIP?: 5,484, no.

Why This Must Be Read: Following Johanssen and Beck from crew selection to beyond the movie, it’s got slow burn and interested observers as their attempt to be professional (in extreme circumstances) battles their feelings.

Glad to remind you of it, or was it point you to it?

The former—though I’m looking forward to discovering the rest now!

Looking up tags over the past few days has led me to recs I missed the first time around because I didn't know the fandom when they were first posted, which has been great.
