    Summary

    Hermann is a disillusioned professor at a local community college and Newt is an over-enthusiastic barista at the coffee/tea shop he's been frequenting for the past two years. Hermann keeps drinking Newt's awful tea and Newt keeps making googly eyes at him when he thinks he isn't looking, but they've both been too stubborn to admit that there's anything brewing between them. There are also a few other... complications.

    Summary

    The spleen was doing something very uncooperative now, turning colors no alien spleen was meant to turn, and oh god, was something bubbling? That could not be good. "No, baby, no, I can fix this, I can do better, just give me one more chance," he begged it, ignoring Hermann's baffled, "Pardon?" in his ear. He grabbed frantically at the tongs, fumbling them, realized he probably couldn't fix this situation one-handed, and said to Hermann, "Gotta go, important work to be done."

    "Newton, I swear to you, do not hang up this phone, follow my instructions—"

    "No time, man, science is happening," he said, and then without thought tacked on, "Bye, love you," and threw the phone in what was likely the direction of his desk, not bothering to end the call. Hermann probably kept talking, but hello, science.

    Summary

    written for the prompt "Between Stacker sending an already injured Newt to Hannibal and Newt arriving on the streets of Hong Kong, there is a period in which a quite shaken Hermann, who is still shocked by how close Newt has come to frying his own brain, becomes quite clingy and tells Newt not to go.

    The argument of "Stacker ordered it" finally makes Hermann give in, but still, dude, Newt had no idea Hermann could be this scared for him!"

    Summary

    Newt doesn’t want to survive, he wants to fucking live. He figures that if anything is going to challenge that belief, they better be worth it, like he can’t die via choked-on-a-tic-tac or tumble-down-the-stairs. Nothing is going to be given the opportunity to destroy him unless that thing is at least as amazing as he is.

    The first thing that met his standards attacked San Francisco and shook the earth to its core.

    The second one was Hermann.
