Frankenstein and the Newt

It’s 2030 and the apocalypse hasn’t so much been cancelled as changed horsemen.

The Challenger Deep Breach is closed but all that means is that the Anteverse is pissed, and daikaiju are simple compared with a constantly mutating virus that turns everything it infects into puddles of howling Kaiju Blue.

Everything it’s infected bar one thing, and if the Precursors think a few extra arms and eyes are going to stop Newton Geiszler from kicking some asshole alien ass, they’ve got another thing coming.

Hermann, meanwhile, is juggling a young family, an inhuman boyfriend, bureaucracy, kidnapping attempts from a shadowy government agency, and a mathematical model that just won’t predict, no matter how much chalk he wastes on it. (Which, honestly is none; Newt’s allergic, nowadays.)

Part 1: Frankenstein, the Newt, and Vi

“Um. Hi? My name’s Vivian Lee. I’m supposed to, um…” Vi looks down at the phone in her hands, at the email showing on the screen. “I’m newly assigned to the K-Science Lab? I was supposed to ask for Doctor Gottlieb?”

The guy behind the reception desk looks up with an expression hovering somewhere between fear, pity, and disgust. “Oh, man,” he says. “Who’d you get killed to wind up posted to K-Lab?”

Part 2: Tentacle Monster, Attack!

Newt is the size and weight of a small car. There’s really no reason he can’t defend himself against the people who’d like to hurt him. Mako decides to give him some lessons in self-defense.

Part 3: The Last Kaiju

The Gottliebs come to visit Hong Kong, which means a romantic day out with his wife for Hermann, and a day of getting into (parentally supervised) trouble with Hermann’s daughter, Lena, for Newt. There’s also a typhoon, but the Shatterdome is built to withstand a kaiju, so everything should be fine…

Part 4: Shadow of the Colossus

“Dude. I don’t want to fight a Jaeger. I know I have a three-foot dick”—this is a slight exaggeration, it’s more like two and half, but—“I don’t need to try and prove it to Larson in his bullshit pissing contest.”

Part 5: Newton’s Cradle

After Newton’s transformation, back at the Shatterdome…

Part 6: Kaiju, Jaeger, Doctor, Traitor

After years of futile efforts trying to model and predict the k-virus outbreaks in the same way he could predict the daikaiju, Hermann finally manages to figure out where he was going wrong. Now his whole family has to pay the price.

Part 7: Doctor Lars Gottlieb is an A[r|s]se?hole

Obligatory fandom Lars-is-a-douche-fic. Now with alien tentacle sex and the weaponized use of bureaucracy. Fun for the whole family!

Part 8: Night Out (unfinished)

This was basically just a PWP: an anniversary outing for the titular characters that was going to degenerate into kinky porn.

Newt Inherits a Bar

The scary part is the bar looks exactly like Newt remembers.

Obligatory Pacific Rim/It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia crossover. Because… why not?

Untitled Pacific Rim/Torchwood crossover (unfinished)

This is basically the flip-side piece to “Newt Inherits a Bar”, except while that was the Charlie Day character crossover ‘verse, this is the Burn Gorman character crossover ‘verse.
