    Summary

    One year after Newt abandoned Hermann to work for Shao Industries, Hermann decides to confront his ex-fiancé. Not with any intention of trying to win Newton back, of course, but only to gain some kind of closure, some answers for why he vanished so suddenly and avoided even speaking to Hermann ever since.

    Except when Hermann confronts Newt in his home, he learns that Newt is under the control of the Precursors, and that they have every intention of killing Hermann to keep their secret. Newt strikes a desperate bargain to save Hermann's life, which the Precursors accept with the condition of Newt's good behavior, and that Hermann can never be allowed free again.

    Now a prisoner, it is up to Hermann to try to free them both, while keeping the secret of his plan to do so from the man who knows him best in the world.

    Summary

    Midoriya Izuku and Bakugo Katsuki face off against villain bots in a combat simulator, using the Drift to react faster, anticipate attacks, and learn each other's movements. It sounds simple enough. But then they come face-to-face with Onibaba—the sludge villain determined to possess heroes with the strongest Quirks.

    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

    In the aftermath of Knifehead, Raleigh realizes just how lucky they were. Because so many things could have gone differently - could have fallen, could have been ripped from the Pod, could have broken something vital, could have pierced a lung, could have hit his head so hard that he would never come back - that would have ended in disaster, but none of them did.

    Summary

    The connection does dim after a while, but it never goes away completely. That’s how Hermann knows that Newt has been nursing a headache for the past few hours.

    Summary

    Newt Geiszler and Hermann Gottlieb saved the world once.

    That was a long time ago. Four years, to be exact. Since then they’ve been working for Hannibal Chau, and their world saving days are behind them. Newt authenticates kaiju specimens for Hannibal's international buyers, and Hermann balances the books back in Hong Kong. Neither of them ask any questions.

    It’s not a bad arrangement, until a terrifying new threat makes itself known in the Pacific.

    Summary

    $50 is a lot of money to a college student. So when Raleigh Becket and Mako Mori hear about a psychology experiment that pays cash, they can't resist. Of course, they don't count on the unforeseen side effects of Drifting with a total stranger.

    —————

    This fic, part one of five, follows Raleigh and Mako through their college years, which means there's:
    - holiday fluff (Christmas and New Year's, especially)
    - heartfelt conversations and drunk texts
    - college shenanigans
    - angst from chasing the RABIT
    - all kinds of good OTP prompts

    This story's going to be long enough that I'm splitting it into several parts. Keep reading to find out how they go from strangers in college to Rangers in the PPDC.

    Summary

    The invasion of the Anteverse was successful, and the Precursors have been destroyed, but Newt still hasn’t awoken from his coma and doesn’t respond initially to Drift attempts from Hermann to wake him.

    But when one day a connection is established, Hermann and Newt find themselves in a mingled mindscape that seems informed by Dante’s “Inferno”. Together, they pass through the Nine Circles of Hell, nine memories of Newt’s years under Precursor control in the hopes that doing so will free Newt from his own head.

    Yet questions linger: how much did the Precursors take from Newt, to what lengths will Hermann go to free him, and is the other even truly there, or merely a rabbit of the other's making, a product of wish fulfillment and fantasy that they’re chasing into the abyss?

    He ends up in the empty mess hall, after. Lopsided hips, fingers tapping out a rhythm he hasn't heard before on the spine of his walking stick.
