    What if a key moment in the Dance of the Dragons had gone differently? How would that affect the Dance in general? And what would the new result have on the future of House Targaryen? The Dance of the Dragons strained the last dragonlords, but when new threats against them emerge, will they apply the lessons learned? See the Dance in its full violent nature and the bloody aftermath.

    Summary

    A man from modern day America wakes up to find himself in Westeros, years before the show's start. As a fan (and to an extent, realist), how will he act according to the future he knows is coming?

    I'm withholding any relationship tags or archive warnings to avoid giving too much of the game away. Hope you can forgive me!

    Summary

    Mark Watney never manages to make contact with Earth and NASA never realizes that he survived the storm and evacuation on Sol 6. So, needless to say, the crew of the Ares IV is incredibly surprised when they land on Mars to find a scruffy, malnourished, mentally unbalanced, but still-alive astronaut waiting for them.

    Summary

    The events of Sol 18 will be analyzed by NASA, the media, and, eventually, by a congressional hearing.

    This is what everyone can acknowledge to be true--during the trek to the MAV, the communications satellite is ripped from its moorings and careens through the air, knocking both Commander Melissa Lewis and Astronaut Mark Watney off their feet and into the air.

    Summary

    I voice my thoughts out loud. “Watney should be dead. The storm should have killed him, and if not, the blood loss.” I’d found a large puncture wound in his abdomen. “It’s a miracle he didn’t puncture an organ in that fall. It’s a miracle he didn’t break anything important. It’s a miracle he woke quickly enough to avoid suffocation. And that was only the first day. Every day after that is another miracle, except exponentially miraculous the longer he went on. He should be dead.”

    “But he isn’t.”

    “But he isn’t.”

    A rewrite of chapter 1 of A Planet at the Edge of Understanding.
