The Martian AU where on Mars, the crew of a ship called the Titan III runs a manned mission to the red planet. The mission is commanded by Levi Ackerman, who also doubles as the mission’s navigator. Connie Springer, the pilot of the Titan III. Doctor Jean Kirschtein, a biologist and the mission’s flight surgeon. Mikasa Ackerman, the system’s operator of the Titan III. Geologist Eren Jaeger. Chemist Sasha Braus. And engineer Armin Arlert who happens to be particularly close to Eren and Mikasa.

In the event of a violent dust storm, the crew is forced to leave the planet. In midst of the chaos, the crew is lead to believe that Armin is dead, after he is hit by debris and thrown far away from them. His radio is disabled and his suit is unable to read them his vitals. 

To ensure that no more of his crew members die, Levi tells his crew to get onto their ship so Connie can take them back to their orbiting vessel, the Maria.

Unknown to the Titan III crew, Armin survived the storm and the trauma and is left very much alive. When he wakes up after the storm, he realizes that he is left stranded on a planet, alone with no way out. 

With only his wits left to keep him alive, Armin decides that he must do what he has always been good at: Science-ing the shit outta the situation.

Thank You, James Horner

Yesterday, one of the great film composers, James Horner, died in a plane crash.

I am heartbroken, as are many other fans of films and film music.

Y’all know that one of my biggest influences as a writer is music–specifically movie scores. And James Horner’s work takes up a huge chunk of my music library.

As a child, I was obsessed with the music for Casper and The Land Before Time. To this day, I can’t listen to this music without tearing up. I’m a child again, and anything is possible.

When I was a young Trekkie, I’d watch and re-watch Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and Star Trek III: The Search for Spock by fast-forwarding my cruddy VHS tapes to the best parts of the movies–whenever Horner’s music was featured front and center, of course. The battle of the Mutara Nebula. Kirk and crew stealing the Enterprise.

In middle school, a budding trumpet player, I listened to his Titanic score over and over, singing along with the trumpet parts and dreaming of being a studio musician so I, too, could record Horner’s music someday.

Now, as a writer, I’ve spent hundreds upon hundreds of hours working to his music, particularly his score for A Beautiful Mind, which is one of my go-tos. I’ll put it on repeat and let it play all day, its magic firing my imagination.

The world of film and artists has lost a talented, beautiful soul. Today (and probably for the rest of the week) I’ll be listening to James Horner scores in his honor.

Here are five of my favorite tracks, in case you want to join me:

Rest in peace among the stars, Maestro.

It’s all about tradition, this is pretty much what my father and his father carried every day.
