    Summary

    Twelve is you washing your hands ten times up to the elbow in the space of the half an hour you spend prepping kaiju entrails for long-term cryo. It's him that stops you, him that struggles over to the sink on his cane and grabs you by the wrists, hands fitting perfectly over the open maws of Hundun and Yamarashi, and he says "Stop," and "Newton, think, this isn't like you, it is like—" and the me hangs unspoken but you get it, let him guide you over to a bench in the lab and force you to sit still long enough to tone down the compulsion.

    Summary

    Blinking, Hermann gives Newt a blank expression. “If you want an authentic movie experience, why don’t you go to the theater and see a movie, then?”
    “Ooh, you asking me on a date, Hermann?” Newt has just enough cheek to wink at him before he saunters over to the microwave.
    The rising blush on Hermann’s cheeks is completely involuntary and not a reaction to any particular implication. Or so he tells himself. It’s not the first time Newt’s made an offhand comment like this, and he suspects it won’t be the last. Moving together after returning to civilian life is a tinderbox. There is always the threat of some sort of ignition and yet Hermann is too much of a coward to do something to actually make it happen, even if he craves the warmth of a fire.

    Summary

    Dear Newton,

     

    I can finally share with you that I have been offered a temporary teaching position at Harvard, covering a professor who is going on sabbatical in the fall. They reached out due to their interest in my preliminary research on the breach; they would like me to give presentations or something of the like. Is this something you would be interested in collaborating on with me? You’ll be very close by, after all, and I hope you want as much as I do to discuss our shared passions in the flesh.

     

    I arrive in Boston early next month. I look forward to spending time with you, if you’re amenable.

     

    Yours,

     

    Hermann

     

    or: "one of us thinks this is a date but the other thinks it’s an informal job interview (or, in this case, project collaboration proposal)"
