    Summary

    A little part of him raged at the thought of anyone leaving Hermann to his own devices — not that he wasn’t more than capable, but Jesus, Hermann shouldn’t have to be the only one who cared about himself! What kind of husband would leave their partner halfway across the world (Newt assumed) in a place as cold and clinical as a Shatterdome! The guy had to be a massive dick, and Hermann deserved better. He deserved someone who would take care of him. Someone who was here.

    Or: Newt thinks Hermann's husband is seriously lacking.

    Summary

    The night rapidly has descended into a menagerie of discontent like so: Karla cornered him in the dining hall, presenting the screen of her phone to him like trying to feed a wild tasmanian devil, and casually suggested they check out the haunted house that had sprung up a few minutes from campus that evening.

    “No,” said Hermann, using a fork to neatly separate the different vegetables on his plate into their respective groups and eating order.

    “It’s not even that scary!” Karla tried, and pointed to the “ten-plus” sign at the bottom of the picture. “They wouldn’t let ten year olds in a haunted house if it was too upsetting. They’d get sued.”

    Or: an old school butch, a girl who dresses like feather-boa-and-glasses Kermit the Frog, and Alan Turing reincarnated as a whippet, walk into a haunted house. Newt Geiszler walks into a tree. What happens next will warm your heart.

    Summary

    Without Hermann in the lab with him, he was totally alone. And Newt did not do well with being alone, like, at all. With no accountability, no outside stimulation, no spite-driven need to prove someone wrong, Newt’s productivity tanked.

    But it was whatever. He could totally survive without Hermann around.

    Summary

    The Gottlieb siblings are not experts, and their advice should never be followed. Hermann insists he’s a sextant-spert, but if there’s another degree on his wall, I haven’t seen it. Also, this show isn’t for kids, which I mention only so the babies out there will know how cool they are for listening. What’s up, you cool baby?

     

     

     

     

    Out of all the people in the universe, the multi-verse, even, Newt Geiszler wasn't expecting to end up with a research partner who was also a host of his favorite anti-advice podcast. Or for him to be such an unrepentant dickwad. But maybe post production adds ten points of charm or likability or whatever; the point is that they've got a world to save, and the Kaiju don't care about anybody's stupid Webby Award.

    And of course, neither does Newt. Obviously.

    Summary

    "Despite liking the music, however, he wasn’t sure how a front-row-guaranteed/behind-the-scenes special package and live concert was going to go. Hermann was an eighty year old in the body of a man in his twenties. He dressed like it, acted like it, and every birthday that passed brought him one year closer to living his truth."

    It's that weird era in which the Kaiju exist and the world isn't panicking too much just yet, but the war we all know is coming soon. Newt and Hermann know this too, so it's a bit like a last hurrah, eh?

    Summary

    Newton Geiszler is currently being possessed by a genocidal alien race known as the Precursors. They’ve taken over his body, leaving him a prisoner in his own mind. However, Newt has a totally awesome plan. He’s going to make a deal with them: let him prove that Earth is worth saving, and if he can’t do that, they can have his body. But convincing a hivemind full of mega-colonizers that one blue planet can be wonderful isn’t going to be easy. He’s going to need the help of his kind-of-ex Hermann, his best friend Vanessa, and one awesome Footloose remake to pull this off.

    So, naturally, they go on a road trip.

    Summary

    In his college years, Newt Geiszler learned very, very quickly that the way to a teacher or colleague's heart was through their stomach. Thus, he got really good at cooking. Now free from the Precursors' control, he's ready to enjoy the good things in life again, including making (and eating) his favorite foods.

    There's just one, tiny, isty-bitsy problem.

    Summary

    The depth of the dark that surrounded him had been incomprehensible from the outside. Shafts of sunlight sporadically scanned through the underbrush in very small wisps of brightness. His feet were not visible, treading through sloughing mud and limp grass. The buzzing kept increasing in volume the further in he went. Walls of thick ivy on every surrounding side seemed to vibrate with a slow crawling movement. His breath, heavy with the oppressive weight of stale air, quickened.

    And finally, the enclosure had an exit.

    This outcrop proved both more hospitable than the maze and less, because Hermann saw something—someone. In the isolated flush of clotted green and nonexistent breeze, Hermann found a boy.

    He was sprawled out, chest lightly rolling with every breath. His dark hair spread out in thick curls against a large rock, dewy with a copious spread of moss. Hermann feared, at first, that he had stumbled upon death.

    Summary

    Newt is a famous rock star in the punk rock alternative band Kaiju Blue that wears skinny jeans that are too skinny and Hermann is a modest part-time bookshop employee and engineering and science student who's never heard of Kaiju Blue in his life. Classic cliched superstar-falls-for-the-only-person-who-treats-him-like-he's-human. Blushing nerds and awkward tension ensues.
