  2. Summary

    J. Baillier's "Drift Compatible" takes place in the 2040s, in a world changed and governed by a devastating threat. Based on Guillermo del Toro and Travis Beecham's Pacific Rim universe but requiring no knowledge of it whatsoever, it is the story of Rangers Holmes and Watson, serving in the Pan-Pacific Defence Corps, humanity's best and last line of defence. A highly sophisticated neural interface allows them to Drift, which means syncing their memories and thoughts to control a Jaeger—which are the most formidable war machines ever built. Drifting also creates a connection between the two men which, in its intensity, is initially difficult for both to accept. These short stories were inspired by "Drift Compatible", and feature the works of several authors.

    The title of this series comes from a speech in the first Pacific Rim film, one made by Marshal Stacker Pentecost: "Today... At the edge of our hope, at the end of our time, we have chosen not only to believe in ourselves, but in each other. Today there is not a man nor woman in here that shall stand alone. Not today. Today, we face the monsters that are at our door and bring the fight to them. Today…We are cancelling the apocalypse."

    Summary

    She lays the sage bundle down in one of his seashells, avoiding the label. How he loved cataloging natural items. That sharp mind of his so naturally tended to the sciences, and she’d taken great joy in encouraging him all his life. All the first thirteen years of it. The last year has been entirely different.

    His hand lies just outside the white comforter. When she touches it, the chill of his skin sends a shiver down her spine. His lips move, his voice as soft as dead, dry leaves.

    “What’s that, love?” she says.

    “In the trees,” he says, his eyes still closed. “Is it John there in the trees? I think he’s waiting for me.”

    Viola turns her gaze out the window and to the closest tree, a resplendent cherry in the throes of autumn. In the branches there, for just a second, she thinks she sees it: a black bird, feathers gleaming in the sun.

    Summary

    This is a union of two souls left stranded in a world they'll never really belong in, left bereft and friendless. They make do with what they have, this bastardisation of unity between pure, raw holiness and unadulterated, dark damnation.
