my precious science babies


"How’ve you been?"

Description of Newton and Herman's lab -- *BOOK SPOILERS*

Herc had been in the Kaiju Science lab a few times, and his first thought every time he walked in was that it was like two halves of a brain.  One side was neat, efficient, sparkling clean, and generally so perfectly arranged that Herc instinctively wanted to avoid it for fear of messing something up.  The other side was like the bedroom of a teenager obsessed with monster movies. 

No surface was uncluttered.  Jars and tubes of strange materials and fluids were stacked and scattered everywhere, sitting on top of computer monitors that displayed images of kaiju together with complicated helical patterns Herc took to be DNA.  From the ceiling hung an inflatable kaiju and an inflatable Jaeger, facing each other down over a lab table where something was bubbling next to a sink.  Herc instinctively wanted to avoid that side, too, but for fear of catching something.  

Down the middle of the space, from the center of the doorway to the back wall, where it disappeared under a refrigerator, was a line of hazmat tape. Two halves of a brain, maybe, but it was also like a bedroom shared by two siblings who couldn’t live a minute without finding something to fight about.  

Of course, it wasn’t only siblings who fought all the time.  Herc thought of his son, Chuck, and then refocused on the matter at hand.

"You sure you don’t want anything else? How about these quarter walkie-talkies? They have a built-in homing beacon."


I’ll keep one too.


They go out for drinks, which turns into a date and leads to a morning after with sunrise and kisses.
