3 Works in Quan (Pacific Rim)
The apocalypse has, once again, been cancelled. Jake Pentecost is determined to take the fight to the Anteverse and the Precursors themselves. However, it doesn't take PPDC very long to realize that Newt Geiszler, under the influence of the Precursors, is not tactically useful. He no longer responds to human interrogation techniques, if he responds to anything at all. He doesn't seem to want anything except Alice.
The PPDC has no idea what to do with Newt. Only one other person has ever drifted with a kaiju before, and absolutely nobody else has done it willingly, dozens of times, over the course of a decade.
Hermann Gottlieb is determined to bring his friend back to humanity, but he doesn't know how. He'll try anyway. To what lengths, no one really knows. Not even Hermann himself.
Chuck Hansen returned to consciousness in stages. First he registered the distinct smell of heavy disinfectants and the faintest traces of Australian Sandalwood shampoo, which meant his sister was around. Then the sound of a frustrated seppo arguing with a small child filtered in and it took Chuck a few minutes to realize that it was indeed Raleigh Becket arguing with his niece. Then he heard the distinct sound of Mako Mori laughing, a sound he was proud to have elicited from her three times in the years he’d known her, and he knew he was alive. Mako Mori would never laugh in Heaven; she’d be kicking his ass back to earth to fight rather than let him lounge around all day. Besides, he knew there wasn’t a Heaven, the appearance of the Kaiju proved that to him when he was ten years old.
“Hey there, kid. You’re awake."
A Chuck lives AU, because that is what this fandom is built on. Now with the official playlist.
