    Summary

    As the bourbon is slowly drank away, an idea starts to fight its way out of his grief-stricken and inebriate brain. “What if we killed her?”
    Jake is clearly surprised and a little scared at his question, probably because they were talking about Shao, “What? Who?”
    “Alice.”

    *

    Or in which some very clever people try to get Newt back through some kaiju-brain killing and Drift sessions.

    Summary

    After the attack on Tokyo, the PPDC is forced to regroup, faced with new dangers and the ever-rising threat of the Anteverse on the horizon. Desperate to bring Newt back to his former self, Hermann's life is thrown into even more disarray when the daughter of his former wife shows up on his doorstep. As the clock ticks down to invasion day, and Newt's condition grows worse by the hour, Hermann must confront the ghosts of his past and present, if there is any hope of a future.

    Or, a story about how what breaks us makes us stronger, and love is the greatest imperfection of all.

    Summary

    In the midst of his recovery, Newt finds himself shacking up with Hermann Gottlieb -- a prospect that both excites and terrifies him. At first, he thinks he's just a burden, but soon he learns that both he and Hermann need each other desperately, if either of them are to heal. A fic exploring Newt's journey back from the Breach, not as the man he was before, but someone new. Rated M for language, heavy emotional content, and descriptions of violence.

    Summary

    Hermann Gottlieb was moments from lowering the average intelligence of all his life choices. In his defense, he had lived a life of brilliance: of mathematical proofs bleeding flawless from his fingers, of exceptional cognitive abilities, and there had of course been that time he helped avert the apocalypse. He figured he was long overdue for a spectacularly bad idea.

    But Hermann Gottlieb stared at the machinery in his hand, the Pons System he had cobbled together from what scraps he could acquire without raising undue suspicion, and rued the death of his common sense all the same.

    In which Hermann embarks on a quest through Newt's mind, and love is rarely rational.

    Summary

    One and only one: In mathematics, a statement of the uniqueness of an object; the object exists, and furthermore, no other such object exists.

     

     

    After avoiding the apocalypse for a second time, the Shatterdome hosts a dance for its teenage cadets. Hermann agrees to chaperone. He's never felt that he is particularly good with the youth — but maybe there's an exception.

    (aka Hermann is everyone's gay mentor because I say so.)

    Summary

    Beyond him at the kitchen table, Raleigh looks up--first at Tendo, but then he sees her in the open door. His hands, wrapped around a mug of his own, lose their color. He opens his mouth but can’t speak at first, and Mako realizes abruptly that her hastily purchased tourist clothes are all white and she must look like a spectre of death, or a Drift memory.

    Summary

    Mako Mori is found after it is all over. She’s found, and she’s alive. Not well, and not whole, but alive.

    Hermann, alone in his room while the rest of the surviving members of the PPDC are drinking themselves into justified and deserved oblivion after having once again saved the world, weeps. Not for those lost, not even for Newton Geiszler, but for Secretary General Mori. For the one gleaming, beautiful thing that has not been destroyed in all this. She has always been their hope.

    (Or, Hermann visits one friend, because another is lost)

    Summary

    What can be done about Newt? In the time that follows the end of the second kaiju war, that's the question on everyone's mind. As Newton is detained, Hermann is subjugated to interviews by a mysterious Kazuo Abe who, apparently, holds Newton's fate in his hands.

    Summary

    Here is the situation: the scans say Newt is no longer being influenced by the precursors. Hermann is uncertain about whether they should start a relationship the second Newt is himself again. Newt has always had a flair for the dramatic and not much of a chance to use it lately. Hermann really can't make him admit he's fine now.

    Summary

    it’s hard to tell, in the drift, where one person ends and the other begins (maybe not everyone needs the drift to read minds)

    Summary

    Queequeg was picked by the PPDC from a pool of thousands of candidates to be the new pilot for Pequod Prophet in the Oakland Shatterdome. The only problem is that he can't seem to find a single person to drift with and time is running out. And that’s not even mentioning the mysterious white kaiju being sighted around the world, an increasingly reclusive and obsessive Shatterdome head, and an attractive civilian who falls into his life through an open window.

    Summary

    I wish he was here, Newt thinks, a little hysterically, and then hates himself for thinking it. No, he doesn’t, because he wouldn’t wish this mess on anyone.

    The first thing Hermann Gottleib did when it had all sunk in, was cry.

    The second thing was visiting Newt’s apartment. He found his own letters – opened and cried on – and he found Alice. Alice… a thing, not a her, and god, Newton had wanted them to meet, he’d wanted Hermann to know. He could’ve done so much more if he’d known.

     

    A post-Uprising fix-it.

    Summary

    It takes a Shatterdome to save two people the Precursors have tried to destroy, and to help them put the pieces back together in the aftermath.

    A story about liquor and ice cream, donuts and decaf coffee, kaiju-blood rocket boots, and, in Pacific Rim tradition, the power of science and people too stubborn to give up on each other.

    Summary

    The helicopter is falling, spinning out of control, and Jake reaches out to grab it out of the air.

    He can't fail. Not now. Not like this. Not when his sister's life is on the line.

    Not when she's the only family he has left.

    Summary

    “You don’t want to go back home?” Mako asks, with wide, worried eyes. Behind them, Newton, or his body, is sitting in a chair waiting for Hermann.

    Hermann knows this like he knows a number of other things he doesn’t say aloud, so he meets Mako’s eye and gracefully manages, “I suppose this is home now, this shatterdome. No place quite like it now that the kaiju are gone.”

    .

    They stay in Hong Kong when it’s all said and done.
