Title: Soul Heirs

Rating: PG-13
Fandom/Claim: Drake’s Venture/Solaris
Pairings: Thomas/Francis; Elizabeth/Leicester
Summary: Stellar explorer Frank Drake receives a message from his old friend Walter Devereux, summoning him to the mysterious Solaris.
Note: The general story and many of the plot twists follow Soderberg’s version of Solaris pretty closely, so if you haven’t seen the movie, you will be spoiled. I have left out a few of the major plot points - for example, Kelvin’s reaction to the first Rhea is unnecessary given Drake’s prior relationship to Doughtie; I’ve omitted Gibarian’s son entirely as a symbol unnecessary and difficult to convey without the use of visuals. The relationship between the characters is obviously different, the most obvious example being that the relationship between Gordon and Snow is nothing like the relationship between Tudor and Dudley.
And the ending – well, that’s the way the movie ends. There are no answers – only choices.
