    Summary

    "It's not much," Hermann says, flicking the lights on, "but it's yours for as long as you'd like it."

    He's not just talking about the flat. He hopes Newt doesn't know that.

    --

    Newt's no longer being controlled by the Precursors, but that doesn't mean he has a place to go, or an idea of what to do. Hermann, luckily, has a spare room, a listening ear, and twenty years of pining under his belt.

    Recovery, they both find, is rarely linear- and the world never quite stops feeling like it's ending.

    Summary

    After Operation Pitfall, the world was confident they had solved the problem of the Kaiju. The breach had been closed, and the world had been saved. The Pan-Pacific Defense Corps weren’t dismanded, but they were defunded after the construction of three Jaegers, in case the Kaiju came back. And then the world went back to normal.

    We came up with names for the things we couldn’t name. The Precursors were the creatures that sent the Kaiju, who Ranger Beckett had seen face to face. The world from which the Kaiju came was deemed the Anteverse. And the Earth continued to spin.

    Of course, not everyone believed the Kaiju were fully gone. I was one of those people, and I still am. Newton was another. We stayed lab partners for one year before Newton left and joined Shao Industries, a job specifically designed to irritate Newton’s senses of right and wrong.

     

    A rewrite of Pacific Rim: Uprising. [The whole fic is not in first person].

    Summary

    Hermann is in possession of a logical mind, although it would be unfair to say that his sense deprived him of the ability to imagine. In fact, Hermann imagined many things, and on a near constant basis; being free of his father's control, being able to go where he wants, do what he wants, be what he wants. He's wished for these things more times than he can count. They just happen in ways that he doesn't expect.

    Summary

    "I can't hang on when it's like this." Hermann said, breathing becoming labored and every remaining coherent thought slowly dismantling itself before it could pass from his brain to his lips. He felt like he was being forced out of his own body, his only remaining tether to himself the feeling of Newt’s fingernails digging into his wrist. He was silent, gazing at their surroundings and seeming not to hear Hermann anymore.

    The crimsoned world around him lurched as Hermann fell forwards into Newt’s chest, thoughts looping in figures of eight and senses fragmenting as the drift pulled itself apart. He could hear an insect-like chittering, a bizarre clicking sound that seemed to travel up his spine and burrow into his skin.

    “This is what it’s usually like.” he heard Newt say distantly, voice awed and all hints of terror gone. “I missed it.”

    Summary

    Newton is above all else insufferable. And yet, Hermann falls for him. Hard.

    Vanessa, bless her soul, is too supportive.

    Summary

    Hermann swallows and looks at her. The sharp light of his lamp scatters across her dark skin, catches in her curls, flashes in her amber eyes. She smiles, almost shy, and his heart skips a beat. He had been able to ignore her looks when the possibility of a relationship with her was nill. Now, well...She is one of the most beautiful women in the world, and to him, she simply is the most beautiful woman in the whole world. (He is quite aware of how incredibly cheesy that is, and does not say it.)

    "May I come in?"

    Or, Hermann tries to get some work done, and Vanessa helps.

    Summary

    It’s not an everyday occurrence that someone that looks and acts as old-fashioned as Hermann brings up to his wife how hard he has fallen for someone else, a male colleague no less.

    (Or, Hermann is a bisexual disaster but Vanessa is really okay with it.)

    Summary

    “He's, uh,” Hermann looked around his room for inspiration, his eyes landing on a file on his desk- Dr. Geiszler’s latest report.

    “His name is Newton,” he said quickly, “he's my lab partner. Yes, he's on the K-science team and we just… hit it off.”

    “I thought you hated your lab partner,” Karla said, confused.

    “You used to complain about him every time I called.”

    “Yes, well,” Hermann floundered, “it’s a thin line between love and hate. You know how it is.”

    That statement was a little too close to the truth for Hermann’s comfort. The mental lockbox labeled Troublesome Feelings gave an ominous rattle.
