    Summary

    All Herc wants to do is make sure his newest patient, some ginger sprog who calls himself Chuck, wakes up before time runs out on his case. All he has to do is navigate hospital politics, keep his nurse Raleigh from getting too distracted by hot neurologist, and find a way to kill the monsters rampaging through Chuck's dreams.

    Summary

    "I know what this means to you," Otabek says, his eyes heavy on Yuri. "I know. But remember, Yuri, even in that Jaeger I'll always be by your side to keep you safe."
    -
    Off the coast of Vladivostok, Russia, a fisherman's grandson witnesses horrors and tragedies that will define him for the rest of his life. Somehow, he makes it out alive where others don't.

    Off the coast of Tokyo, Japan, Kaiju come with more intensity than before. Yuri is desperate now more than ever to get into a Jaeger but there's a problem like there always is; he's not drift compatible with anyone. He's ready and convinced that he can take the neural load by himself but no one will listen to him.

    Seemingly out of nowhere, a boy with familiar eyes springs into Yuri's life and convinces him that sometimes pulling people closer is easier than pushing them away. With his small family behind him Yuri is determined to save the world but sometimes things aren't as easy as they seem and no matter how painful, sacrifices have to be made.

    Summary

    Sender: Celestino Cialdini, Headmaster, PPDC Jaeger Academy
    Subject: Official Recommendation - Cadet Yuri Plisetsky, Ranger-in-Training
    Recommendation Status: Recommended with Reservation
    Notes: A talented cadet with commendable physical ability and a well-rounded skill-set, but impeded by lower-than-average synchronization rates and a generally unstable Drift connection. Potentially high-functioning pilot if a compatible partner can be found. Failing that, highly suitable for a number of officer positions in the J-Tech division.

    ----

    In which two problem kids learn to ride together, and soon find that the battles are inside your head long before they're out on the water.

    Summary

    The Kaiju - or Horrorterrors, as the trolls call them - first invaded Earth through a transdimensional rift at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. Serving the Condesce in her quest to add Earth to the Alternian Empire, these monsters have terrorized humanity for twelve years. With the help of rebel troll factions and the adaptation of Alternian mind integration technology - The Drift - the Interspecies Defense Program has fought back as the last line of defense between the Kaiju and Earth.

    Karkat Vantas was a Jaeger pilot, fought for freedom in the Assault on the Breach that brought trolls to Earth. The loss of his co-pilot left him bitter and full of rage, but desperate times have lead to him being recruited to join the fray once more.

    Dave Strider is the best and brightest the Interspec program has to offer. Jaeger Restoration Project Head, highest simulation score on record, and younger brother of the Deputy Marshal - except he's not allowed in a Jaeger.

    Nobody expects them to be Drift Compatible.

    Summary

    In the days following Operation Pitfall, Newton and Hermann must come to terms with the dubious peace that grasps the world. Memories, emotions, and monsters threaten their trust, challenging the scientists to find a peace within themselves following their shared drift event.

    TW: In regards to tags, if you are on the fence, I want to clarify that there are no graphic depictions of self harm, and no graphic depictions of abuse. In dialogue and narrative they are alluded to, and talked about, but descriptive violence is a minimum, relegated to consequential injury due to mostly stupidity. Discretion is honored, a free choice, and respected!

    Summary

    Pacific Rim AU - After Coran and Allura have a rough day in the drift, Coran finds out that Shiro did too. Voltron works differently than the other jaegers - it has to in order to fit 5 pilots - but Coran won't let his discomfort with Voltron's inner workings stop him from trying to help the jaeger's young pilots. After all, he promised himself that he'd look after them, just like he looks after Allura. He and Allura may have shared their darkest memories today, but he can still share some good ones with Shiro, and he can be there when Allura's ready to talk about everything again.

    Prompt was Free Day / AU.

    (T rating is because Coran thinks about him and Allura reliving the total destruction of Altea.)

    Summary

    Jyn is seven-and-three-quarters when Saw Gerrera leans down to her level, and tells her that her parents died as heroes. She knows she is seven-and-three-quarters because she's been counting down the days. Papa said that when she turned eight, he would teach her all about the big robot he and Mama used to protect everyone from the monsters. Jyn got mad when her Papa exaplined it this way, because she is nearly eight, so she's not a baby, and only a baby would not know the proper names for Jaegers and Kaiju.

    Or, the Pacific Rim AU that would not leave me alone.

    Summary

    They never really expected to be thieves forever. They hoped, of course, that there would always be work for them. But when the world governments started combating the giant aliens with giant robots, their opportunities for looting dwindled.

    It's not like Eliot and Parker were looking for new jobs. They just kind of... stumbled upon a new calling. In the process, old enemies became close allies.

    And other old enemies got punched in the face. Because honestly they were asking for it.

    Summary

    There are no secrets in the Drift.

    Fili Durin was only a pilot for a year when his first Drift partner was killed. Four years later the Marshal requests his return as they have a new Ranger prodigy that needs a partner and he is convinced that Fili will be perfectly compatible with him.

    Fili shows up and is furious to see that their new recruit is his beloved baby brother, Kili.

    Fili has no doubt that he and Kili are more than perfectly Drift compatible. However, there are no secrets in the Drift and Fili is afraid of Kili seeing certain things in his mind.

    Kili has his own secrets, but he knows that he and Fili have the potential to be the best Jaeger team out there because of how close they have always been and how they can communicate without words.

    Secrets aren't the biggest problem Fili has with this arrangement, though. Fighting Kaiju are dangerous and he knows that if anything happens to Kili it will kill him.

    Summary

    On his 23rd birthday, Raleigh receives a gift from Yancy: a chained boy in a cage, named Chuck. Raleigh quickly realizes something is very wrong. Chuck's past is a tangled web of lies and abuse, caught up in the plans of people richer and more powerful than himself. As Chuck's story unfolds, the lives of many are drawn together and torn apart, leaving them forever changed. Chuck, having been robbed of all of his agency and freedom in the past, and fighting hard to gain it back, will ultimately find himself having to make the hardest choice of all.

    Rain is a complex, alternating POV story about how no matter how much we have been broken, we can heal, even if we will never be the same; about finding answers in the past, finding safety in the present and finding purpose in the future. About how much of our lives is our own choice, and how much is fate; and how it can sometimes be both.

    The story is not planned out in detail. I may add archive warnings, pairings and tags as it develops.

    Summary

    He lands butterfly-light in a swirl of hair and glittering gauze, and the ceiling crashes to the rink all around him.

    His ears are ringing with heartbeats, his efforts, the cries of the crowd. The rink wobbles under him -- must have landed a bit wrong but he can work through it. Only there are things strewn all over the ice; people usually know to wait until the end to throw roses and tokens and --

    Not applause. Screams. The light is wrong because a fourth of the ceiling projectors are missing. The sky is dark. No stars.

    Something gleams behind the broken sky. And moves. Something he can't -- won't -- something.

    Something that's looking at him.

    Summary

    It's been eighty years since the First Contact War. The Rift is quiet, only sending out the occasional small Kaiju to remind them that the war continues. Humanity needs all their best pilots getting ready for the fight.

    Finnick is at the top of his class at the Ranger Academy. A new Jaegar is waiting for him. Except he doesn't have a copilot, and months of testing have found zero results. Poe Dameron, former pilot of Black One, is his last chance of finding a copilot. If they don't drift, he doesn't fight.

    But there are other enemies beside the Kaiju, and there are some wounds that are hard to forget. There are rumors of people who can pilot a Jaegar alone, who don't need a copilot. As activity begins to emerge from the Rift, Earth will need every Jaegar operational.

    Summary

    "When you drift with someone, you feel like there's nothing to talk about. I just don't wanna regret all the things that I never said."

    Summary

    “Beautiful,” Bucky says to himself. He won’t ever admit it to Steve - although really it doesn’t matter, because Steve knows anyway - but he’s obsessed with Jaegers. Not with their construction or their mechanics, but with their size, their power. The way they feel.

    ~

    Bucky and Steve are shipped to Sydney, sent to find new copilots after a mission gone wrong. Bucky desperately needs to get back inside a Jaeger - and so does Tony Stark.

    Summary

    January 12, 2029 - 02:12 AM - Hong Kong

    "Yes... ?"

    Raleigh voice's was similar to a growl. It was an unholy hour of the night and Stan had kept them awake all week by having nightmares. His eyes circled of dark were enough of a proof. A look outside taught him that the rain who was drenching Honk Kong for now one week was still at it. The pilot sighed, feeling his patience wearing thin.

    "Chuck, tell me what you want."

    "They're back." Chuck said.

    Raleigh frowned, blinking and trying to clear his sleep induced brain. He was pretty sure Chuck voice was shaky. From fear or excitement, he didn't knew. But it was a rare enough occurrence for him to speak up instead of ending the call.

    "Who the hell are you talking about Chuck ? Am tryin' to-"

    "Kaijus Raleigh. They're back."
