fandom: The Expanse
characters: Detective Joe Miller, Julie Mao, and the protomolecule
music: Zack Hemsey, "Waiting Between Worlds"
content notes: as per the series - broadcast TV caliber sci-fi violence, bloodshed, infection, deaths (various), transmutation, transcendence. spoilers for all of season 1 of The Expanse.
summary: Juliette Andromeda Mao... Josephus Aloisus Miller... Maybe they both need a rescue. Maybe it's just the end of their days. Or maybe, just maybe, they believe they can save each other.
notes: This is the first fanvid I've done which focused on a series, rather than on a movie. I admit, going in, I didn't realize just how much footage that meant I'd need to review in putting all the pieces of this together. Thus there was lots of editing, switching of various clips for others, the late-in-the-process insertion of a prologue of sorts (noting that Detective Miller had initially been assigned to track Julie Mao down, rather than just making him look like some random stalker type), and so forth and so on.

For some reason, the pairing-up of Detective Miller and Julie Mao rang a chord in me. They're opposites on so many levels. Miller is most likely an orphan, raised in poverty by the governing dole on Ceres, grown to adulthood and tying his life and career to a corrupt peacekeeping authority. Mao is the daughter of one of the wealthiest families in the solar system, who grew up presumably given every gift and opportunity, who rebelled against the corruption of the Inner-planets oligarchy her father wields enormous power in. And yet, somehow, these two polar opposites from completely different worlds end up... well... watch and see. :)
