Pacific Rim AU fore the three sentences fic?

“Initiating neural handshake in 3…2…1…” the voice surrounding them says and Yuuri only has a few moments to brace himself before he’s dragged down into a chaotic swirl of memories, familiar and foreign all at the same time. His parents smiling at him in front of their onsen, Yakov patting him roughly on the shoulder after a perfectly executed routine, the blue of Viktor’s eyes on the recruitment posters the first time Yuuri ever saw him, the flush on Yuuri’s face the first time Viktor ever held him in his arms, both of them moving together in the dark of the room, bodies joining as one. Then suddenly there is no more Yuuri, just the perfect melding of two minds, two halves that have finally been reunited to make a whole.

okay but what about,,, a pacific rim au,,,, where Nursey and Dex,,,, become drift compatible,,?

hear me out. most folks are drift compatible from the get go. either because they carry nothing into the drift or they’re close enough (usually siblings or family or they just have that special connection) that there’s zero chance they aren’t compatible. but nursey and dex? they. just aren’t. at first.

Over time, though, they watch team after team get taken out and new pilots come and go, and jaegers being built all around them and they’re constantly on standby. they grow closer. they tell each other things themselves and they open up to each other. dex talks about his family and insecurities. nursey tells dex about his.

everything goes to shit one day. the double event happens. they need another team out there backing Jack and Bitty and Holster and Ransom. Nursey and Dex step forward; everyone is skeptical because the neural handshake between them has always failed. but they’re sure of it this time.

the marshall allows it. worse comes to worse they’ll send out one of the injured teams and hope for the best. Nursey and Dex step into a jaeger, their jaeger, and proceed into the drift.

there’s baited breath and then-

It all rushes past them. They’re drift compatible, and it is the most relieving thing to the entirety of the shatterdome. there’s a collective sigh of relief as they’re taxied out to help.

Nursey looks at Dex, or maybe Dex is looking at Nursey. It’s hard to tell when you’re in each other’s heads

We did it.

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.”

Build Upon The Ruins
Chapter 1

“One of these days,” Chuuya told him, “you’re going to get us fucking killed.”

There had been nothing but humor and exhausted relief on his voice, nothing but heavy affection in his mind. Even back in the medical ward and in the process of getting dressed down by busy hands, surrounded by congratulatory shouts, the neural handshake felt like it lingered. In those days Dazai thought it would never leave completely. He thought he would wake up an old man one day and not need to extend so much as a hand to the bed above his to know Chuuya’s every thought like they were his own.

It didn’t matter how unlikely they both were to live that long—or that Chuuya’s warning probably held more truth than all of his imagination.

Pacific Rim AU Part 1

At 15:34 that day the Deadlock Jaeger boots up for the first time and initiates the neural handshake with its sole pilot, name and background unknown.

At 15:41 Lechuza Renegade is deployed to take it down and prevent a mass murder in the urban areas of Santa Fe.

Lechuza Renegade arrives at 16:47. The battle lasts three hours.

“It was a goddamn miniature mech cobbled together in a garage by teenagers with too much time on their hands! What the hell took you so long?”

Gabriel Reyes and his co-pilot take the reprimand with quietly grinding teeth. They don’t say the smaller size made it impossible to hit. It was in and out before their Jaeger could react and its smaller weaponry allowed for aimbot technology the likes of which their own can’t profit from. It was like trying to squash a fly. A panicked fly with a gun.

They don’t say all that because it’s in their report, the same the Marshall pokes at like it personally offended him.

“We did our best, sir.” Reyes says. “And we brought in the mech for study.”

“For study, great! If you haven’t noticed we have a full bay of the damn things, we don’t need some scrap heap out of Deadlock gorge!”

“He is not piloting my jaegar!”

“Now, hold on, Annabeth – ”

“Don’t you hold on Annabeth me!” she snarled, exploding out of her chair and waving a furious finger at the marshal. “You know how much this means to me, Chiron. I’ve spent that last three years of my life designing that prototype and overseeing its construction. If I can’t pilot it, I’ll be damned if he’s the one that gets to!”

Marshal Chiron propped his elbows on his desk and folded his hands together, the movement somehow managing not to wrinkle his crisp uniform. His placid expression was unshakeable in the face of her anger. “If every engineer was as proprietary about their prototypes as you are, the jaegar program would’ve never gotten off the ground in the first place. This jaegar is about more than just your ego, Annabeth.”

Annabeth let out a loud scoff, whirling away from the desk so she wouldn’t slam her fist into the shiny wood and get herself kicked out of his office. She settled for pacing across the room like an angry, caged animal instead.

She’d been spoiling for this fight for days; the shatterdome rumor mill had been abuzz about the upcoming final pilot selection for the newest Mark III jaegar – the one she’d designed – so Chiron’s call hadn’t been a surprise. The long walk from engineering to the marshal’s headquarters had given her plenty of time to stew and let that anger build up, though. Boy, after flat out rejecting her, they sure did like to dig in the knife a little deeper by keeping her well-informed about every stage of the hunt for a suitable pilot crew.

“Oh, please. If we’re going to talk about egos, let’s bring up the one that moved that incapable, incompetent idiot up to the top of the pilot candidate list in the first place!” she replied, waving her arms about exaggeratedly. “I’m sure his father being a senator had nothing to do with that at all.”

i would like to present to you the delightful mental image of jaeger pilots crossing their fingers that there is not a kaiju attack anytime in the next week, because otherwise they’ll have to sync up to achieve a neural handshake and their drift partner will probably find out what they’re getting for their birthday

"Pilot Out of Alignment"

I’ve been thinking about the G. Danger test drift’s context and content, and there was something subtly bothering me but I couldn’t put my finger on it.

The film has a slight problem with internal consistency as pertaining to terminology. We’re introduced to terms like the drift, neural handshake, neural bridge, and at points in the film they’re treated like they’re interchangeable and synonymous.

Except…. they’re really really not.

I don’t own the supplemental media, and for all I know this may have been addressed elsewhere, but if so someone would have mentioned it by now.

As established by the official site and the film’s deployment sequences, the drift between pilots is created nearly simultaneously, but definitely sequentially, with the neural handshake that links them to the Jaeger. The pilots are linked by a sophisticated peer-to-peer brain-sharing interface, and it’s the gestalt of the two (or three) formed by the drift that drives the Jaeger.

So what does this mean when a pilot’s out of alignment?

We know from the battle scenes that pilots can disengage their movements from those of the the Jaeger in order to manually activate items on the console or perform other actions, presumably via mental toggling back and forth.

When Raleigh has his post-traumatic flashback after they finish G. Danger’s calibration, both he and Mako go out of alignment.

Tendo: They’re both out of alignment.
: Both of them?
Tendo: Both of them.

Tendo: Gipsy, Gipsy, you’re out of alignment, you are both out of alignment!
Raleigh: I’m okay, just let me control it.
Tendo: You’re stabilizing, but Mako is way out! She’s starting to chase the R.A.B.I.T.!

Question: Why would it important that both of them are out of alignment?

Answer: Pilot alignment can only mean lining up and synching with the Jaeger, not one’s copilot. Raleigh moves back into G. Danger’s last position when he recovers, whereas Mako is bolt-upright, frozen and lost in her own memory, way out of alignment.

They lose alignment to the Jaeger, not each other: they’re still drifting, still linked, because when Mako chases the R.A.B.I.T., Raleigh traces her back in and chases it with her.

Let’s take a moment to consider that Raleigh, who wasn’t the natural like his brother was, who doesn’t consider himself to be particularly gifted in any way, dives straight into Mako’s memories without looking back, and still keeps enough of a foothold in reality and himself not to drown in the moment like Mako does. To phrase it slightly differently, Raleigh throws himself into the memories of a person he’s known less than a day, someone with whom he shares very few reference points, and manages to find her anyway. He might as well have run into a burning building full of mannequins looking for Mako, because it would have been easier and at least the exits would have been marked.

Let’s also take a moment to reflect on how, in the grips of the most traumatizing flashback possible, Mako still manages unconsciously to realign her connection to G. Danger and activate the plasma canon on Raleigh’s side, and even though he has experience and a fairly ironclad will he can’t override her. What others do by training and probably a hell of a lot of cognitive adjustment, Mako does easily as thought, more easily even, because she does it without thinking.

Later, when Raleigh tells Mako “[their] drift was strong,” he’s really not kidding.

anonymous asked:

so many pacific rim au questions. mainly I'm dying to know what went down with Percy and Luke (backstory, the incident with Pluto Black, everything), how Percy feels about it all, and what's up with Percy's "irregular brain patterns". sooooo good!

I planned out a lot of the story surrounding the Pluto Black for a big bang I never wrote (surprise surprise) a few years ago, so, unfortunately, I don’t think it will ever get used except as backstory in anything else I write for this AU. So thanks for asking!

Percy joined the Jaegar Academy once he turned 18, largely out of the desire to punch kaiju in the face while saving the planet. He and Luke were partnered together during training because they were some of the few that didn’t come to the academy with potential Drift partners in tow - well, Luke did, but Thalia scrubbed out early in the process due to her fear of heights. They develop a quick friendship, with Percy viewing Luke as the older brother he never had, and that led to a powerful, easy Drift connection between the two of them. They quickly become some of the top recruits at the academy. 

Percy and Luke were in line to get the last of the Mark II jaegars the rolled off the assembly line, but the committee decide to choose siblings Nico and Bianca di Angelo instead. The di Angelos named their jaegar Pluto Black. Luke didn’t take this well. He’d started out wanting to become a pilot for good reasons, but those reasons eventually became twisted by Luke’s desire for the glory and prestige that came with being a Ranger. 

Instead of waiting another year or so for the next jaegar to come off the production line, Luke decides it’d be easier to get rid of the di Angelos and take over piloting Pluto Black. While he’s plotting this, he and Percy start to have issues with their Drift compatibility - the neural handshake won’t initiate or they go out of sync every time it does hold, and they’re failing sims left and right. So Percy knows something is up with Luke, but because they haven’t been able to Drift properly in weeks, he doesn’t know exactly what’s going on.

Anyway, Luke sabotages Pluto Black’s systems with the help of some of the guys from her pit crew; the system goes wonky during a practice run, with the end result killing Bianca and severely injuring Nico. The initial investigation classifies the Pluto Black incident as an accident, but Luke’s plan doesn’t go his way at all. First, his troubles with the recent Drift have dropped him and Percy off the pilots list, and Reyna and Hylla Ramirez-Arellano take over as the temp pilots of the Pluto Black. And second, a nosy new tech named Leo Valdez determines it was deliberate sabotage that took down the Pluto Black. Leo mentions this to Percy, who immediately suspects Luke and tells Chiron what he knows. 

Luke eventually cracks under the pressure, gets arrested, and is tried with murder, attempted murder, treason and probably a bunch of other stuff. Percy is investigated pretty heavily and put on probation for several months until he’s cleared. His reputation has already been damaged, however, and Nico blames him for Bianca’s death. 

As far as the “irregular brain patterns” thing goes, that I was an idea I played with for the first story that I think has been edited out somewhat by now. Basically, I imagined that Percy was someone who could Drift with pretty much everyone at least once, but he’d be less successful at it every subsequent time until there was no chance of compatibility. Thus, the shatterdome kept him around as a back-up pilot on the off chance they find someone who was truly Drift compatible with him. In this newest story, his issues with the Drift are most psychological thanks to lingering issues with Luke rather than some quirk of his brain. 

Wow, this was long, haha. 

Guys. But guys, listen.

Bethany and Carver piloting a Jaeger together. A Jaeger called like, Fear & Lothering or some shit.

Neural handshaking over the mean shit they did to each other as kids. Or Carver turning from jerk brother to defensive twin the second someone else picks on her. Or Bethany apologizing because no, he’s not really a brainless brute and she didn’t mean that; she was just angry.

The two of them getting irritated with each other outside their Jaeger, arguing but no one ever wins because they both know each other so damn well. And people are like, “how do they match so well but still argue so often?” but they just subconsciously settle their differences through their Drift while killing some Kaiju.

Carver getting injured and Bethany forcing him to keep doing physical therapy until he’s better because when he’s not at 100% neither is she.

Bethany falling out of alignment in their Drift, getting caught on memories of fear and shame, and Carver hunting her down and hugging her and reminding her she’s done nothing wrong, that no one blames her for anything.

Twins in Jaegers. Hawke twins in Jaegers. Help.

A Pacific Rim AU for Tim/Kon week: Sci-fi/fantasy.

“Giant fighting robots! Come on, Tim, this is gonna be awesome!”

Tim crossed his arms and glared. “Are you listening to yourself? This isn’t just a video game! This is a war, and you’re trying to sign up to fight the kaiju in one-on-one combat?” His voice was tight, shaking; Kon couldn’t think of a time he’d last seen Tim so worked up.

“Tim,” he said, rubbing a hand along Tim’s back, soothing. “Nowhere’s safe on the coasts, not until we find a way to fight these things. If this is how we can stop them, then I’m gonna help.”

Tim closed his eyes, looking pained. “I’m not going to be able to talk you out of this, am I,” he said, and it wasn’t a question. “Fine. Then I’m going with you.”

“What? No, Tim – look, just because I’m an idiot doesn’t mean you need to be one, too.” It was one thing to put himself into danger; another thing entirely to imagine Tim out there, risking his life to the same monsters that killed his parents.

“They’ll need engineers for the jaegers,” Tim pointed out. “And I’m not letting you do this on your own. We’re a team, remember?”

Kon breathed out, knowing full well how stubborn Tim was when he got an idea in his head. “Teammates,” he agreed, and knocked their fists together to seal the deal.

for a fake bitch who didn’t deserve this fic. (midotaka, pacific rim au, 1830 words)


They’re not friends.

Takao has heard all the blather people spout when they talk about drifting (“the deeper the bond, the better you fight”) and he can attest that it’s utter bullshit. You don’t have to like someone to fight with them, and sometimes he wonders how other pilots can still like their partners after finding out every dark and ugly thing about them. It doesn’t make sense.

He has no idea how anyone can stand Midorima, to be honest, but their compatibility score is near perfect. Midorima’s lethal shooting accuracy paired with Takao’s instinct and flexibility makes them one of the best Jaeger teams in the country, possibly the world.

But they’re not friends.

I use to think about this scene a lot. Specially about Hermann’s face here. 

I believe Hermann didn’t want him to speak not because he thought Newton’s idea was stupid and illogical. No, I think Hermann believed in the bottom of his heart that Newt was right, that sharing a neural handshake with the kaiju would give them some answers, but it would probably kill Newton.

So how is he going to stop Newton from doing this? He tried to knock to his ego (“Don't embarrass yourself”) because offend him might be a better way to stop him than saying “Please Newton I worry about you don’t do the thing”. But they’re not like this.

Whatever, saying that didn’t stop Newton. He is mad and he even turns off the computer in a very angrily way “Seriously Newton, you are going to risk your life like this?”

And what can I see on Hermann’s face? Well I see fear. And a little bit of angriness. I mean, if you focus on him, he looks anxious. He is shifting and muttering “No” and shaking his head a little. 

Because If the Marshall and Herc do believe Newton and they give him the green light, it’s all over. Newton will be dead and he won’t deal with that.

And when Pentecost says he wants Hermann’s information, he could not be more relieved. When he salutes the Marshall and says “Sir” I feel it’s his way for saying “Thank god”.

And then he smiles. No like, he is literally smiling AND looking at Newton, and things are normal again. He starts mocking Newton and Newton is pissed off but let’s remember Hermann’s last words:

“You’d kill yourself”

Hermann cares. He always cared.

(Sorry if my english sucks but I really had to write that down bc I have a lot of feels about these fucking assholes)

You’ll never convince me that Jaeger pilots don’t use the drift technology for gaming.

Imagine Newt throwing together another makeshift Pons and hooking it to the Shatterdome’s entertainment center. He and Hermann are fucking beasts at Mario Kart, sailing by everyone else in seconds. People run for cover when Herc and Chuck pull out Call of Duty. During a neural handshake Raleigh and Mako started a PVP in Mortal Kombat… and it’s still going on. 

Oh, and just forget about the usual drift partners–EVERYONE wants to partner with Stacker. Rumor has it he scored a 1,000 in Flappy Bird and that he beat The Impossible Game. Twice.
