1. As Steel Carves Through Starlight [Reviews - 1] (1220 words)
To engineer a spacecraft is to dream a dream - one built on hopes and passion, on friendship and love, on terror and wonder. As Cooper so wisely said in Interstellar - our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.

2. Two Steps from Out the Door [Reviews - 1] (4696 words)
I'm going to keep acronyms to a minimum, but some make way more sense than writing things out repeatedly. So for a quick reference:
VAB - Vehicle Assembly Building. It's the big famous NASA one with the logo on the side.
ESA - European Space Agency

Singularity - Darlingside
The Love - Con Bro Chill (best heard as John leaves the badging office)

5. The Promise of Stars [Reviews - 0] (3538 words)
Sorry this chapter took so long! I literally re-wrote it 9 times to get it the way I wanted, and my job is always very hectic this time of year. I'll try and avoid another month-long hiatus! Also, any typos/little mistakes are all my fault, I am far too eager to simply publish at this point.

6. Warm Under the Light [Reviews - 0] (6010 words)
John and Rose to the lab to see the Harmony spaceship like she's never seen it before. In the days after, the two grow closer - close enough to start uncovering some secrets about John's thoughts about Cape Canaveral and the mission at hand... Hi everyone, I'm back! I'm stupidly excited to share this chapter with you. I really hope you enjoy! Any mistakes are my own, I've looked at this for far too long to be healthy. ~Listen Along~

7. Thunder and Oxygen [Reviews - 1] (4104 words)
Thanks y'all for your patience while I perfected this next piece of the story! It's been a wonderful summer of actually getting to go places and see my friends which is why this has taken quite a bit of time. It's coming up on my one year anniversary of starting to write fic, and I'm really pleased that I love each chapter I write more than the last. The final copy of this is totally unbeta'd so I do apologize for any typos, I just wanted to get this out the door at this point.

If you enjoyed the Tom Hanks Apollo 13 movie, then I think you'll like this chapter. And after this, there's a lot more after-hours fun for our lovebirds to have... :)
