    Summary

    Raleigh figured his baseball career would die in the minors after he hurt his shoulder. Then, he's recalled and traded in the same day to the same team his older brother plays on.

    Sometimes, all you need is a good kick to get you back on track.

    Summary

    Recently locked down to a five-year contract, Chuck Hansen is just getting comfortable as the superstar captain of an elite hockey team. Only, that's when the team's general manager trades for the incredibly talented but inconsistent goalie Raleigh Becket, who appears to have no ambition whatsoever. And Chuck’s pretty driven, to put it nicely. Clearly they have some stuff to teach each other - and quick, because the Stanley Cup playoffs are just about to start.

    Summary

    Raleigh can admit that he finds it rather flattering to recieve fan letters but never pays them much attention until Charlie starts writing to him. Raleigh can't quite bring himself to answer but this Charlie - a sincere young boy determined to become a Jaeger pilot just like Raleigh - definitely leaves an impression on him. It's lingering enough that even after Knifehead, losing Yancy and returning to the PPDC five years later, Raleigh still hasn't forgotten about him, even if the letters ceased coming long ago.

    And when Raleigh meets Chuck Hansen he can't help but wonder if this might be the Charlie he once knew. How many Jaeger pilots can there be with that name? But Chuck is nothing like Charlie and their ages don't match. Where Charlie was innocent and hopeful Chuck is arrogant and cynical. They can't possibly be the same person, can they?

    Summary

    At 25 years old, Yancy Becket dies reaching out, leaving behind a younger brother with his soul torn in half, and an unborn child who will never know his father.

    At 22 years old, Raleigh Becket finds himself newly discharged with a busted arm, a neat little description of PTSD and various other disorders he's probably been diagnosed with on his file, and a two month old baby. He's also well and truly at the end of his rope, his life dented by the impressions of those no longer there.

    Or

    How Raleigh Becket desperately tries to keep his head above water in a roiling sea of sorrow and depression threatening to drown him, and the only thing keeping him afloat is the little boy with Yancy's face who calls him "daddy".
