    Summary

    (Pacific Rim AU)

    A mind, stripped of years.

    Another, which bears the weight of monsters.

     

    Thrust together after Dazai's partner suffered from a drift overload, rendering him unable to maintain a neural connection, Chuuya and Dazai must learn to work together in body and in mind if they are to pilot the Jaeger 'Soukoku'. But not all of Dazai's monsters have human faces, and those are ones he will take to his grave, the ones he will share with no one.

    As the connection between them winds deeper, pulling like the strings of fate, the two rookie pilots have to make a choice - to maintain the status quo or to strive for something more, something just out of reach...but the clock counting down the final heartbeats of humanity is ticking, time is running out and tragedy follows tragedy as the world begins to fall.

    When a category four Kaiju threatens Yokohama, the secrets of the two pilots will come to light. Will they be able to work together to defeat their enemy, or will this new information break them apart from the inside?

    Summary

    She wasn't upset with Malfoy. She was just resentful that Harry was back in their Jaeger with two almost strangers, and that she was back in K-Science with two complete strangers.

    Hermione spends her nights Ghost Drifting with a dead man, and her days haunting the Shatterdome.

    And I'm just an arrogant son of a bitch
    Who can't admit when he's sorry
    -
    Dr. Geiszler,
    When I asked the Marshal to recruit another scientist, someone as educated as me, someone who I could discuss my theories with, you never crossed my mind. I don't need to do the calculations to know there is no universe in which I ever wanted you here.

    Dr. H. Gottlieb

    Summary

    When Kazuha's drift partner suffers a suspicious death in the middle of a drift, he takes with him Kazuha's job, Kazuha's ability to feel much of anything, and the last secret of the Inazuman Fleet that he never quite managed to spill. It seems like there is nothing left for Kazuha to do except walk until he meets whatever fate has in store for him.

    What he meets is Haishan.

    Summary

    The first time Newt drifts, it’s half spite and half desperation. His second drift was warmer. The third drift was lonely. He doesn’t remember the fourth drift. And after this, he forgets.

    Summary

    Xie Lian used to be the top Jaeger pilot, a star in the crown of the Task Force fighting against the kaiju. But even stars fall and Xie Lian's fall was worse than most. After 10 years, the battle against the monsters of the deep has not improved and they are losing ground, so Xie Lian agrees to come back to the front with one stipulation: he needs a drift partner.

    Summary

    There's a helicopter of new pilots coming in from Vladivostok, ones Andrey will have to train and screen to be paired and partnered and sent off to their first-ever drift. Being a supervisor at the Shatterdome is far from the same as piloting himself, but some wounds are better left unopened.

    Too bad there's a familiar face among the Vladivostok crew.

    Summary

    “You leave your left side open every single fucking time,” Karkat says ruthlessly, and Dave does flinch at that, because it’s been years and nobody’s called him out on the fact that his body always makes a space for another a little shorter than him, wiry and left-handed and viciously fast. “You’re unpredictable and maybe that works against cadets who’ve never had a real brawl in their measly lives, but it won’t work with another person strapped to your useless sponge of a brain and fifty fucking tons of metal around you. You’re not the right person for this because you can’t fucking follow orders and you know it, but you’re what we have.”

    Dave has to fuckin’ laugh – he’s the wrong person for this shit for maybe a million reasons, but insubordination sure as hell wasn’t the one he was thinking about.

    Summary

    “I don’t want to make this sound bad, but if you leave me no choice, then these are your options: Stay here as a free man, supporting the Jaeger program and the destruction of The Breach, or go back into the Raft first thing tomorrow morning. For the rest of your life, too, probably.”

    - me, June 20th, 2021

    ---

    Harrison Wells has no intention of ever entering a Shatterdome again, determined to leave the ghost of the tragic loss of his co-pilot and wife from his last time piloting a jaeger firmly in the past, to focus on raising Jesse.

    Cisco Ramon is a jaeger engineer, not a pilot, focused on retrofitting a badly damaged Gen 3 jaeger, keeping the ghost of his one and only drift, and the truth of the tragic accident in his Shatterdome, close to his chest - and hidden behind his goggles.

    But some things don’t stay buried - or in the basement - forever. And to cancel the apocalypse, they may both have to face their own ghosts...

    Complete!

    Summary

    In the early years of the Kaiju War, trainee jaeger pilot Daniel LaRusso won a fight against rookie pilot Johnny Lawrence, an event that changed both their lives for better or for worse. Now, more than 30 years since either of them set foot in a jaeger, a desperate shortage of experienced pilots has brought them both back to the PPDC and back into each other’s lives. After months of antagonising each other and clashing over their roles as instructors of a handful of trainees, they’re paired up as a pilot duo despite their best objections. When their first Drift test goes badly wrong despite their technical compatibility and Daniel practically runs out of the conn pod, Johnny goes after him, demanding answers to two questions: ‘what the hell was that about?’ and, perhaps more importantly, ‘where do we go from here?’
    (A conversation from a Pacific Rim AU that just popped into my head practically fully formed. Some characters and their drama are just made for a giant-robots-run-on-friendship ‘verse.)

    Summary

    To fight monsters, we created monsters of our own.
     

    Teyvat is at war with the kaiju: gargantuan, city-destroying leviathans that emerged from an abyssal rift beneath the sea.
    After losing his twin sister in a battle against an unknown kaiju, ex-Jaeger pilot Aether still clings to the belief that she is somehow still alive. Guided by strange dreams, he confides in Albedo, the eccentric K-scientist who believes the kaiju are more than mere monsters.

    But Albedo brings with him his own buried past. Discovering the truth of the kaiju will bring new revelations about their origins, the truth of this world, and the secrets which lie within the drift…
