    Summary

    Newton’s thoughts were there, swirling like a thick fog between his own thinner, sharper ones and making him dizzy. He couldn’t block them out, and not for lack of trying, because Newton’s ninety-fourth rendition of Queen’s “We Are The Champions” had become grating, and his one hundred and sixty-eighth almost nauseating, if he hadn’t already vomited in the last few hours, even if the first fifty-three had been forthcoming and even slightly pleasant.

    Summary

    “I remember that night,” Newt says. Quieter now. “The party and the buzz and the feeling – man, the feeling we were goddamn rock stars. And we could have done anything, and yeah, I was thinking about all the glory and the fame and all the people whose faces I'd love to throw it in… but mostly, all I remember thinking was that I was going to get to do it all with you.”

    “Well, of course,” Hermann replies, and Newt snorts. “Who else would you have done it with?”

    Ten years on, Hermann and Newt navigate the end of the world.

    Summary

    To Newt's horror, Hermann finally works up the courage to accept his estranged ex-lab partner's invitation.

    Summary

    "Drift withdrawals are real, and they're very deadly. If we want to fully weaken the Precursors, Newt will have to be slowly weaned off drifting altogether."

    “Sounds good,” Ranger Pentecost says after Secretary General Mori has explained the concept. “The problem is finding someone he's compatible with so we don't just fry his brain further.”

    Hermann doesn't like the way everyone immediately looks at him.

    Summary

    The Kaiju rose from the seas and levelled mountains, destroyed cities, left only fear in their wake. Only the Jaeger can stop them, and their brave pilots.

    Cue Poe Dameron and Finn Storme.

    Summary

    Hermann Gottlieb is the only one willing to help Newton Geiszler become himself again after the events of Uprising. Through a series of sessions, he gives Newton the strength he lacks to fight the Precursors' grasp on his mind.

     

    “Humans are so pathetic and predictable”, he commented, the indifference in Newton’s tone making Hermann’s skin crawl. “Maybe I just like to see you beg. Maybe I just want to see you all get on your knees and beg for me to let go of this weak, ridiculous vessel. Or maybe I just want to watch you all try and fail to save what’s left of him while I continue to destroy his body and mind”, he grinned.

    Summary

    For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. The statement means that in every interaction, there is a pair of forces acting on the two interacting objects.

    Summary

    Newton Geiszler was always destined to be a rock star. Admittedly, starting a cult and maybe-or-maybe-not becoming part kaiju wasn't exactly what he had in mind.

    Or: that one where Newt makes instruments out of kaiju parts, Hermann composes sounds from the drift, and Vanessa accidentally opens the Anteverse, a little.

    Summary

    La gamba di Hermann, di solito, non è un problema.

    La sclerosi è un problema, sì, specie in un mondo che non ha più tempo per ricerche e terapie e medicinali, ma almeno è un problema che ha imparato a gestire. Non è l’ideale, ma l’apocalisse che ticchetta sopra le loro teste riesce a mettere tutto in prospettiva.

    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

    'Somewhere along the lines, someone thought it was a good idea to experiment with unborn infants to make hybrids... They were wrong.'

    The shatterdome crew at Anchorage are baffled when a boy washes up next to Raleigh with rapid growth, Inhuman strength, Instant information processing, Telepathic abilities and Kaiju blue in his veins. Pentecost does not trust anything Kaiju. Especially not when it's half human. But against his will he has to admit that perhaps this is the kind of influence they need to get Raleigh back into a Jaeger and get a strategy to kick the Kaiju off of Planet Earth for good.
