    Summary

    Hermann is cursed as a child so that he may never remember anyone he meets. Theoretically, this should make falling in love impossible, but then he meets (and meets and meets and meets) Newton Geiszler.

    Drs. Geiszler and Gottlieb's relationship goes back almost ten years.

    We know this because the paper trail goes that far back, too.

    Summary

    In the case of Drs Newton Geiszler and Hermann Gottleib, "bickering like an old married couple" was actually a fairly literal description of them. After all, they had started dating one year after Newt came aboard the PPDC, then married two years after that. So maybe the "old" part of "old married couple" wasn't perfectly accurate, but it was really just technicalities at that point.

    Summary

    "By the way, dude," he says, and he reaches down both to grab his notepad as well as to avoid looking at Hermann, "my parents think we're dating."

    Instead of the expected angry yelling, he gets only silence in response, so he looks up to see Hermann opening his mouth to speak, reconsidering, closing it, and repeating. After several more repeats than strictly necessary, he sighs and slumps down in his seat.

    "Of course they do," he says.

    Summary

    Faith, like love, had been a foreign concept to Hermann for a long time. In some ways it still was, which was why he put the world’s fate in a human’s hands instead. Because if Hermann was going to do something stupid, really stupid, then he needed help.

    Or, Hermann Drifts with Newt, who is potentially still a Kaiju.

    Summary

    "Drift withdrawals are real, and they're very deadly. If we want to fully weaken the Precursors, Newt will have to be slowly weaned off drifting altogether."

    “Sounds good,” Ranger Pentecost says after Secretary General Mori has explained the concept. “The problem is finding someone he's compatible with so we don't just fry his brain further.”

    Hermann doesn't like the way everyone immediately looks at him.

    Newt’s always loved music, and he still does. The precursors could never take that away from him. Neither could they take Hermann.

    Summary

    "Well, uh, I'm sure you'll want to head back to home," Newt said after some time, but at least he was able to meet Hermann's gaze. That was a good sign. "And I've got... well, I don't have anything back in America, but I guess I should go back home, you know?"

    Surprisingly, Newt's excuse gave Hermann the encouragement he needed. He could tell that Newt was unsure of where they stood as well.

    "I quite like America. Parts of it, I mean. It is a big country, and while I lived there for some time, I didn't see all of it. We could fix that. If... If you'd like."

    Newt laughed. "Yeah, I mean, I do love a good road trip. Where would you like to go?"

    What could have happened in those ten years if things had turned out for the better.

    Summary

    Years after they stopped writing each other, Newt and Hermann run into each other on the steps of Cambridge University Library. Quite literally.

    Newt stares at him, expecting more. He doesn’t get any. “Come on, man, who are you? Maybe I’ve read something.”
    I doubt it, Hermann barely catches himself from saying. “Gottlieb. Hermann Gottlieb.”
    And Newt looks like he’s struck oil. “Oh my god,” he says, and something flickers behind his eyes, like there’s more than just recognition there, and before he can wonder any more about what it is, Newt blurts, “Oh my god!” and Hermann flinches and makes a face like a disgruntled frog.

    Summary

    Newt's time with the PPDC mostly involved trying not to jinx his Muggle lab partner, resisting the urge to let his tattoos move on their own, slipping potions in Hermann's tea, pining for his dragons, failing to keep a secret (multiple times), saving the world, and maybe falling a little bit in love. Amongst other things.

    The AU in which Newt is a wizard and sucks at hiding it.

    Summary

    Amanda didn't see the issue with T'hy'las, and she celebrated when such an unusual bond manifested for Spock. As she saw things, Jemima Kirk had given Spock choices in life, given him the space to discover his own path, and develop his own identity. Spock had done the work of building his own life, but Jim had provided him insight into other ways of being, other ways of doing, that harked to Vulcan's most sacred ideals. Amanda vowed she would never forget those gifts. As a mother, a life freely and authentically lived was all she wanted for her child.
