7.) Who watches their partner get tortured and is helpless to do anything about it?
well, if we wanna go for canon here, technically hermann’s been doing just that for 10 years now. he’s been watching newt be tortured, trapped in his own mind, even if he had no idea, he was watching newt flat out suffering. i think in pacific rim 3 we’ll see more of this like, i have a feeling the precursors might do something physically to newt’s body to mess with hermann and also warn him off of trying to expel them. i’m really not ready for the suffering hermann is gonna have to go through too watching the love of his life just trapped inside his own head, and having the precursors at the wheel.
so maybe i can switch this up and at some point newt would have to watch hermann being tortured. i think this would fuck him up so bad? like he’d vow revenge on whoever is hurting hermann, and he’d hate himself for being helpless in the situation, also be really distressed over the fact hermann is just being hurt. i think after it was over, hermann was saved and what not, newt would be overprotective of him, and coddle him and make sure nothing ever hurts him again sorry i need some fluff after that imagery in my head.
i can’t believe no one has ever mentioned the symbolism of georgia (the state) being the thing that initially kept bitty in an environment where he had to suppress who he was and georgia (the person) being instrumental in his and jack’s journey to coming out and being true to who they are
