    Summary

    When people thought of Poseidon they thought of the sea; Poseidon, Lord of the Seas, Commander of the Waves, the Stormbringer. Upon consideration they would add Earthshaker, for catastrophic events such as earthquakes were hard to forget. Few remembered, however, that Poseidon was also Lord of the Horses. Stormbringer and Earthshaker tended to squeeze that one out.

    Percy had been able to talk to horses for as long as he could remember. He liked to think he understood them. Although he's not entirely sure why the new stallion thinks he's its foal.

    Poseidon is not jealous that Percy thinks a horse makes a better father figure than himself. At all.

    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.

    These are the stories of Mark's long journey home and the lives of the people he touches along the way. (Mostly told from not-Mark POVs.)

    Summary

    In space, Grantaire faces unparalleled challenges and threats, and with no hope of rescue or even another human voice, but he keeps fighting—for the love of his friends.

    On Earth, he doesn’t face the same dangers as he did on the surface of Mars, though everything he knew seems to crash down on him like a wave. He struggles with the idea that the love for his friends just might not be able to keep him going anymore.

    How can he face life with a brave face when he expected to die for so long?
