    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    “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."

    She tries the handle but it’s locked.'

    Five times Mako doesn't see Hannibal Lecter's mark on the Jaegar program and one time she does.
