Oye! Welcome aboard the Rocinante.

Pull up a crash couch and grab a bulb of Holden's coffee. He won't mind.

This is your safe haven to discuss anything and everything about Expanse - be it the novels, the short stories or the TV series. You can share fanworks and theories and just general squee. If anyone fancies teaching the rest of us Belter Creole, that would be great! You can even discuss the cast and crew, if that is what your heart desires.

Although we're an MCRN ship, we stick to the rules about as well as Miller does. But we do have a few that we insist on:
  • No bashing. That includes other people, as well as the cast. 
  • YKINMK - if you don't like what other people post, don't read it. In return, we would appreciate it if you would use cut tags if you think other  people might not like what you're posting.
  • Spoiler policy: For two weeks after an episode has aired, or a month after a new book has been released, please keep anything spoilery hidden under a cut. It's only polite.
So, anyway, I'm [personal profile] kayim and I'll be your host here. if you have any questions, just message me.

Hello!  I've been looking for discussion on The Expanse, and I'm so glad to find this community.  I was wondering about people's opinions on book v. show Amos--I have some vague thoughts about his portrayal, but I'm not sure they're coherent yet, so any perspectives would be really helpful.  Spoilers, obviously, may occur in comments.

Please note the change in schedule to weekly (vs. every 3-4 days). Also, since season 2 isn't widely available yet, we'll take a break when we finish season 1 and determine at that time when we can best start season 2.

We have a few participants who are watching for the first time. Please note any SPOILERS for upcoming episodes in the comment subject line.

Icons are my main way of expressing my fannishness, so of course I've made some Expanse icons. 10 is all I've got so far, but I'm sure there'll be more as I go through season 2.

I hope you like them!

The creators of this series pack an awful lot of narrative into each episode. Between the action and the gorgeous effects - not to mention the gorgeous cast - it's not hard to imagine some nuances slipped under the radar. Since season 2 has just wrapped up, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to start over again from the beginning.

Starting May 1, I'll begin posting re-watch posts on an accelerated weekly basis (meaning an episode every 3 or 4 days). My goal is that we'll complete both season by the end of July. for season 1 on a weekly basis.

So buckle up, partners (as Alex would say) and let's get a move on.
First time viewers of the show are also welcome! Please feel free to spread the word.

In the meantime, here are a couple articles about this re-watching habit.

Thank you, [personal profile] kayim for allowing me to share a re-watch here. :)

I'm so pleased that so many people are joining the community. Not only does it fill me with happy glowing feelings, it's also pretty awesome that there are other Expanse fans out there!

So today I'll wanted to ask a question: Who is your favourite Expanse character?

Feel free to include book characters in here, but if your answer includes something that could be considered a spoiler, please write SPOILER WARNING in the subject line of your comment :)

Hello! I'm K`shandra (yes, I've been using this particular pseud long enough that I answer to it in meatspace, as well). I'm a second-generation science-fiction fan, reasonably new to this particular fandom, but catching up quickly. Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck are guests of honor at one of my local conventions next month; I've got friends who are hosting a Belter-themed party at the con, and I'm putting together an Avasarala costume (not screen-accurate by any stretch, but it should read well with the right accessories).

Looking forward to seeing what havoc we can wreak here! ;-)
