    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

    "Gottlieb!" Pentecost says over the phone. "How's it going?"

    "V-Very well. Thank you." An idea occurs to Hermann. Something to say that might secretly alert them to the danger. “Newton and I have been getting along very well.”

    “That’s good. That’s good,” Jake says. He doesn’t seem to realize anything is amiss.

    Hermann frowns. “No, I said Newton and I are really working well together.”

    “Oh!” says Jake. “I get it now. Congratulations, Gottlieb! Certainly took you and Geiszler long enough!”

    The connection flickers and cuts off.

    “What the hell was that?” Amara hisses.

    Hermann is still a little stunned. “I was— I was trying to say something out of character to tip them off.”

    “How would that be out of character?”

    Hermann spins, outraged. “How would it not be?”

    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

    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.

    Summary

    To fight monsters, they created monsters of their own. Ten ton beasts made of metal and piloted by two humans who had to share everything with one another.

    Theo's been there, done that. He barely survived it, and sometimes, he wishes he hadn't. He certainly doesn't want to do it again. But humanity's on the brink of destruction, and he'd rather go out in a blaze of glory than sitting on his ass. At least, that's what he tells himself.

    Right up until the day he meets Liam.

    Summary

    It's several years after the breach has closed. Everyone survived and is moving on with their lives. Newt and Hermann are closer than ever, work at the same college campus, and are basically best friends. But the rest of the gang sees something is obviously there. It takes a Halloween Party for these idiots to realize their feelings.

    Two parts, first is just nice fluff between the two, the second...will have the actual party. the Costume Party.

    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.”

    Summary

    Jake had known Nate for most of his life. They had grown up together. They had been best friend from the time they could walk. Jake had loved him almost as long. A drunken night brought out both their feelings. They ended up in Nate’s bunk, naked and tangled together. It was hot, intense, and left Jake carrying the other man’s child. Out of fear, Jake intensely picks a fight with his co-pilot, ruining their friendship, and new found love. Jake leaves a confused and heartbroken Nate behind.

    Years later, fate (and Jake’s reckless behavior), caused him to reenlist, forcing him to see the man he had been avoiding for years. Unknowing how Nate would take the news, Jake says nothing.

    However, when you drift with someone, there are no secrets.

    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

    “You...argue, with him."
    “Yes.”
    “About what?”
    “Literature, mostly. Though we once had a conversation about who ruined our microwave, and that led to some interesting insight.”
    “Such as?”
    “That I was right, and the bastard did blow it up on purpose.” Mako stares at him. “What?”

     

     

     

     

    To help Newt recover from the Precursors, Hermann drifts with him, and then moves in with him. Everything that happens after the fact is just an unforeseen consequence.

    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

    Leave it to Newt’s shameless predilection for violent sex to bring him back around.

    Alternatively: the one where Hermann literally chokes the Precursors out of Newt.
