Rec: Not While I’m Around by callmejude

Pacific Rim- Newmann BannerTitle: Not While I’m Around
Author: callmejude
Canon: Pacific Rim
Pairing: Newton Geiszler/Hermann Gottlieb
Rating: General [G]
Word Count: 1,850
Summary: Written for the kinkmeme prompt: In all the years they’ve worked with each other, Hermann can’t remember ever seeing Newt angry – upset and frustrated, maybe, but never angry. Sure, they argue and raise their voices at each other all the time, but that’s just lively intellectual discourse – they’re never really mad at each other. Hermann has always just kind of assumed that Newton is so easy going that nothing can set him off. And then someone messes with Hermann, and Newton absolutely explodes with rage.

Recommendation: So they can yell at each other until kingdom come, but lord help you if you try to push one of them around.

Pairing: Newton Geiszler/Hermann Gottlieb
Rating: Explicit [NC-17]
Word Count: 7,429
Summary: Hermann’s solitude and shame was an immovable object inside him. He had yet to find out that it would soon encounter an unstoppable force.

Recommendation: It’s so sad that Hermann decides so young that he is no more than his disability, and it’s a beautiful thing that Newt pushes past all that.

Author: what_alchemy
Canon: Pacific Rim
Pairing: Newton Geiszler/Hermann Gottlieb
Rating: Explicit [NC-17]
Word Count: 7,396
Summary: The Dr. Geiszler Hermann had found in the publications – printed pages worn with constant handling and tucked into his briefcase for easy access — was an eloquent scientist whose work functioned at a level far above almost anyone else Hermann had ever encountered in the field, and yet he neither patronized his readers nor expressed himself in the inexplicable jargon which so infected much academic work. He was singular in his intelligence. Hermann thought this was a man he could understand — and who could understand him in turn. More fool he.

Recommendation: The Drift as relationship counseling, no seriously, for being so smart these boys are really dumb. But adorable. Yep really adorable.

Rec: In the Hour After Zero by Amuly

Pacific Rim- Newmann BannerTitle: In the Hour After Zero
Author: Amuly
Canon: Pacific Rim
Pairing: Newton Geiszler/Hermann Gottlieb
Rating: Explicit [NC-17]
Word Count: 15,209
Summary: In the case of Drs Newton Geiszler and Hermann Gottlieb, “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.

Recommendation: This is the first Pacific Rim story I’ve read and wow talk about jumping in on the deep end of the pool. This was lovely and fits just right in with canon. Extra points for how Amuly handled Hermann’s MS. Just love.
