  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

    They say that people who settle in such isolated, wild places cradled and battered by the sea are exceptionally at peace with themselves or running away from something. Sherlock certainly knows which one applies to him, but what about his reclusive neighbour John Watson?
