ehghtyseven*tumblr*com/post/164308605048/welcome-to-team-crosby-ccm-skills-app omg this gif runs reminds me so much of the drift sequence in pacific rim/imagine the pens are trying to find a drift compatible pilot for geno and each person they try to match with drifts ok with him straight up until that memory comes up and its geno's first time meeting Sid and then the neural handshake just falls apart on geno's end and when he leaves the other veteran pilots have to reassure the rookies 1/2

(oh shit i forgot to copy and paste part 2 and i deleted it ;-;)

link omfg okay let’s say sidney was ripped from the jaeger and Geno saw his other half with his own eyes tumbling into the waters, Sidney screaming his last word, “Geno!” and Geno never recovered. 

So Geno is transported to where the Pens are stationed (coincidentally, the station where Sidney used to work at) to find a new drift partner, and he’s surly and mean and scares all the rookies and no one knows what to do with him because he refuses to work with anyone. 

But then one day, a Russian rookie manages to form that handshake with Geno and he sees the following sequence of events:

Geno growing up in Russia. His brother. His parents. A large dog chasing him in the backyard and kid Geno laughing.

Kaijus attacking.

Then a blur of faded blue, Sidney Crosby, famous Pens pilot, meeting Geno for the first time. “I hope you see me more as a teammate though.”

More blurs, then Sidney’s frustrated face, his voice angry: “I can’t have you risking your life for every stupid thing someone says about me.”

Then Sidney lying next to him, looking at him with wide, affectionate eyes, talking about his life before, about Cole Harbour, and hockey. 

Then, “I will,” Sidney says, laughing and crying out his words as Geno lifts his hands and kisses the ring on Sidney’s finger. “I will marry you. God, you have really shitty timing, G.”

Then, Sidney, unclothed and rumpled and looking so, so soft, half-lying on top of Geno and asking, “I don’t want to go to Florida for our honeymoon. I want somewhere that snows. It’s so pretty, G. We’re going.” Then Sidney jolts as the sirens blare, signaling another Kaiju attack.

Then, finally, Sidney’s frightened face, blood streaming down on one side, plummeting into the waters before as he’s pulled out of the jaeger along with a hunk of metal, screaming, “Geno–” 

Neural handshake initiated. 

Geno looks momentarily lost as he looks at his partner, like he didn’t know what to do with himself. Then his steely expression returns twice as fast. 

“Cut handshake,” Geno intones to control. “Need break.”

“Zhenya–” He feels the handshake cease and the jaeger powering down. 

Don’t,” Geno says harshly, then schools his breathing. He closes his eyes. “Just. Don’t.” 

I don’t find it that bad that Taylor deleted all her photos and tweets. On one hand they were full of history and memories but on the other hand she had become really inactive and her Twitter was really impersonal. So why not a new change ?

thoughts from fic maintenance yesterday:

  • there are only so many ways to say thank you after nice comments, I do hope it still sounds sincere. THANK YOU. I MEAN IT THIS TIME. istg <3
  • I wish AO3 gave you bookmark notifications because I found some DELIGHTFUL bookmark comments I had never noticed before
  • it is super weird getting a comment on something old of yours that you kind of secretly despise now because on the one hand YAY COMMENT but on the other BUT THIS THING IS GROSS AND I’VE BEEN THINKING OF DELETING IT ANYWAYS? (it makes it very hard to manage even just the repetitive if sincere thank you. thank you but ew? – not a good response)
