Dr. Geiszler thought he had taken all the necessary precautions executing his plan: Pilfer Gottlieb’s Snacks. He would Deny Everything as the X-FIles had taught him. He would remember to remove his gloves before contaminating the food this time. However, despite his best efforts to remain subtle, there was always that one particular detail he would overlook.

Twitter Ten Pack Part 2: Tantalizing Tales. [Pack 1] [Pack 3] [Pack 4]

You all loved the last pack of doodles so much that I continued doing them. These started as a quick way for me to vent what I felt/thought at the time. Many aspects of these comics are inspired by my actual life. So, although they are not all meant to be funny, I am glad that they have brought so much joy to many of you (and that I could do it with characters that I love).

Feriowind’s Cultist Newt inspired me:

I think the idea of cultist Newt would make for an interesting AU.

It starts off normally with Newt still working in the K-Science division. Until he is in the shelter when Otachi is very selective of finding him. After allowing Newt to live, many believe this was a sign of Newt being some kind of “chosen one.” (Also, Newts full body set of tattoos doesn’t help his case either.)

Because of his interest in the subject/collective of information via the drift and his career as a biologist, Newt would have ample wisdom about Kaiju. The cultist believe he is some kind of “Kaiju Soothsayer." They seek out his membership. Being surrounded by a group as interested and eager as him, it was hard to say no.

Newt becomes an acolyte. Despite his “gift” he is still required to prove his loyalty.

His insight of both the hive mind and Kaiju biology continue to inspire and amaze. Newt climbs up the ranks of the circle and is awarded the hat as an Adept.

Time passes, he is finally adorned with the stole (sash) as the rank of Kaiju Disciple:

Newt’s moral obligations as a biologist would make for a striking conflict with his faith. Does Newt always proceed with alacrity and honesty in his studies? After all, Kaiju are his idol, will he only choose to see them in positive light?

Hermann is constantly unsettled and worried about him. But he does not hesitate to call Newt out. At times, even dismissing Newts word as apocryphal.

"Newton, you cant just go around changing facts to fit theories!”
"You know what, Hermann? The circle was right, you are jealous."

It is not until Newt is almost killed by a Kaiju does he have a sudden change of heart. This is what it takes for him to question his loyalty and ultimately leave the cult.

The theme would focus heavily on submitting to cosmic terrors and the futility of actions.
