    Summary

    It's the annual Shatterdome New Year's Eve shindig and Hermann isn't sure how Newt managed to convince him to attend. Hermann is about to leave and spend the remainder of the night alone when a strange conversation inspires him to stay until midnight. A tale of awkward work parties, confused emotions and an interesting arrangement between lab partners.

    Summary

    “Yes, well,” says Hermann, glancing away for a moment, then, like gravity enforcing itself, back to Newt, “it’s not like this is a new development.”

    “Proximity breeds affection. Be honest: do you like me for my compatibility, or because I’ll tell you when you have spinach in your teeth?”

    Summary

    Newt has never once associated the words “professor of mathematics” with “someone he would love to pin against a wall, or, ideally, be pinned against a wall by,” but something about Dr. Tall, Pale, and Drop-Dead Handsome has got Newt bad.

    Summary

    Hermann cleared his throat and adjusted his grip on his cane, which, in an effort to stop people (read: Newton) tripping over it, was tucked neatly under the table. With the smallest of nudges, one end found itself in the path of one unlucky jaeger pilot. His tray went flying, and he hit the ground hard, and though Hermann was sure nothing had been broken by the fall, he still fought back a grimace in sympathy at the loud thud that echoed through the mess hall.
    Chatter at the surrounding table went silent, and several pairs of indifferent eyes landed on Hermann, who was pulling his cane closer to himself, placing it safely in his lap.

    Or: Hermann defends Newt's honor (like, a bunch of times)

    Summary

    The other hums. "Maybe," he agrees. "I dunno, though, I feel like I'm forgetting something important. I didn't have a doctor's appointment or something scheduled today that I forgot about, did I?"

    Hermann shakes his head. "Not to my knowledge," he replies. "I'm sure whatever it is will return to you in due time. But in the meantime you really ought to get off to bed."
