    Summary

    Prince Hermann Gottlieb is desperate to escape his father. Desperate enough to flee his home for the asylum of the eastern kingdoms. There's a problem, though. The Gottliebs are known to be dragonslayers and the rest of the world, especially the east, are full of dragons living alongside humans.
    Sort of based of the arranged marriage AU but Hermann sort of volunteers himself.

    Summary

    A little part of him raged at the thought of anyone leaving Hermann to his own devices — not that he wasn’t more than capable, but Jesus, Hermann shouldn’t have to be the only one who cared about himself! What kind of husband would leave their partner halfway across the world (Newt assumed) in a place as cold and clinical as a Shatterdome! The guy had to be a massive dick, and Hermann deserved better. He deserved someone who would take care of him. Someone who was here.

    Or: Newt thinks Hermann's husband is seriously lacking.

    Summary

    Since his undergrad, Dr. Hermann Gottlieb has been attracted to the charismatic keyboardist ‘Doc’ of the Black Velvet Rabbits, an up-and-coming band whose members are known only to the public by their stage names. He is similarly drawn to his brilliant colleague and correspondent Dr. Newton Geiszler, whose name is all over the scientific community but not a single photo of him. Worlds collide when Hermann learns that BVR are playing a show in town and Dr. Geiszler finally reaches out to him for a long-awaited first meeting.

    Falling in love through compositions both penned and notated: a pre-canon, alternate take on Newt and Hermann’s tumultuous first meeting and subsequent assignment to the Hong Kong Shatterdome.

    Summary

    “He's, uh,” Hermann looked around his room for inspiration, his eyes landing on a file on his desk- Dr. Geiszler’s latest report.

    “His name is Newton,” he said quickly, “he's my lab partner. Yes, he's on the K-science team and we just… hit it off.”

    “I thought you hated your lab partner,” Karla said, confused.

    “You used to complain about him every time I called.”

    “Yes, well,” Hermann floundered, “it’s a thin line between love and hate. You know how it is.”

    That statement was a little too close to the truth for Hermann’s comfort. The mental lockbox labeled Troublesome Feelings gave an ominous rattle.

    Summary

    The night rapidly has descended into a menagerie of discontent like so: Karla cornered him in the dining hall, presenting the screen of her phone to him like trying to feed a wild tasmanian devil, and casually suggested they check out the haunted house that had sprung up a few minutes from campus that evening.

    “No,” said Hermann, using a fork to neatly separate the different vegetables on his plate into their respective groups and eating order.

    “It’s not even that scary!” Karla tried, and pointed to the “ten-plus” sign at the bottom of the picture. “They wouldn’t let ten year olds in a haunted house if it was too upsetting. They’d get sued.”

    Or: an old school butch, a girl who dresses like feather-boa-and-glasses Kermit the Frog, and Alan Turing reincarnated as a whippet, walk into a haunted house. Newt Geiszler walks into a tree. What happens next will warm your heart.

    Summary

     
    The first contestant she meets at their orientation is an American immigrant.

    A Californian.

    (In which Karla seriously needs to stop taking advice from her brothers, Vanessa still manages to be intimidating in tacky halter tops, and lesbians aren't fucking around when it comes to breadmaking.)

    Summary

    That thought alone made his heart race — that Hermann loved him, had loved him for years, loved him deeper than anything Newt had ever felt before.

    Newt loved Hermann too. Of course he did. Loving Hermann was as natural to Newt as breathing, for fuck’s sake.

    But the thing about Newt was that no one ever stayed. No matter how many times they said they loved him, no matter how long they spent together, they always always always left him — and it was always, some way or another, his fault.

     

    Or: Newt and Hermann hold the world record for miscommunications between drift partners.

    Summary

    If you had sat Hermann down in that theoretical room full of theoretical infinite monkeys and went ahead and given him a theoretical typewriter as well, the monkeys surely would have come up with at least a few of Shakespeare's lesser works before Hermann would have gotten anywhere near Newton’s so-called Grand Plan.

    “What exactly are you proposing here, Newton?”

    “Oh. I guess, uh, marriage?”

    Hermann hung up on him.

     

    Ficlet and bangin' (according to Newton) wedding reception playlist.

    Summary

    Karla Gottlieb was not good at maths. Numbers just didn’t make sense to her; they were too abstract, too intangible. She could do enough arithmetic to make it through her day-to-day life, and that was fine by her.

    Summary

    “Yeah,” Newt says, nodding like this is some kind of fascinating scientific discussion and not the worst day of Vanessa’s entire life, maybe. “You definitely have a lot of adrenaline right now, and probably increased estradiol levels, too. It’s likely affecting your entire endocrine system in an attempt to stimulate reproduction.”

    There’s a brief, tense beat of silence as Vanessa registers this statement, then Karla and Hermann, and then Vanessa is shooting out her hand for Karla to yank her phone out of her trouser pocket and shove it towards her, frantically unlocking it and swiping to her Dexcom app. The little number on the screen says one hundred eighty three, with two side by side arrows pointing straight up.

    “Bitch,” she tells it in a quiet, disappointed little voice, which of course is the exact moment her high alarm begins screaming at the top of its lungs.

    In which our heroines fuck around, find out, and then just fuck.

    Summary

    Without Hermann in the lab with him, he was totally alone. And Newt did not do well with being alone, like, at all. With no accountability, no outside stimulation, no spite-driven need to prove someone wrong, Newt’s productivity tanked.

    But it was whatever. He could totally survive without Hermann around.
