Uncle, though. Esca remembers Aquila asking after his nephew at the hangar when they arrived, but he hadn’t realized that the nephew was a pilot. The pilot they need a copilot for is an Aquila. The thought of it makes Esca’s chest tighten, caught between excitement and dread. Would it be a sick revenge, to drift with the man whose father caused the death of Esca’s? Would it be justice? He can’t be sure.

Esca gets into the jaeger program from prison with one goal – kill kaiju and die nobly. Obviously Marcus will help with the first but refuse to let him do the latter. Awesome Pacific Rim AU!
Raleigh chuckled. “You’re still a real dick, you know that.”
“And you’re still a washed up old geezer,” Chuck replied, prompt and still smiling. “We’ve all got shit we carry with us into the drift.”
“Yeah,” Raleigh murmured, Yancy’s face flitting across his mind, “I guess we do.”
“‘Sides, we don’t have to like each other all that much for this to work.”
“For, uh, for what to work?”
Chuck gave him a disbelieving look. Raleigh got the feeling once again that he was missing something, but he still couldn’t figure out what it was.
“You serious?” Chuck scratched at his chin, the motion drawing Raleigh’s attention back to his mouth. “Have you always been this slow on the uptick when you’re being pulled?”

Before the last mission, Raleigh and Chuck come to a truce – and then some. 😉
Raleigh Becket is like human catnip and Chuck burns for him the way he’s never burned for anyone else in his life…

Oh my, this is simply delicious… Raleigh taking Chuck apart, allowing him to experience what he’s never allowed himself to have… *chef’s kiss*
He felt it in the drift, how not-sorry Jake is for leaving all this behind. But he fumbles with Jake’s belt anyway, works it open with his hands, because yes Nate’s uptight and has no sense of humor and he’ll never forgive Jake for leaving, but he’s stupid-in-love with him all the same.

I don’t have the same kind of love for this movie as for the first, but this ship? That set sail all on its own.

If there’s one thing in this entire damned outfit that he doesn’t regret doing, it’s Nate, though Jake’s got the funny feeling in the back of his mind that in real short order Nate’s going to regret everything to do with him.
It’s for the best. Probably. One day he’ll find a way to make it up to Nate. Maybe.
Teen, pre-movie. For Trick or Treat 2018. Jake and Nate before things went south. This is lovely.
never ever ever (back together), by susiecarter
Ten years ago, Nate and Jake were something to each other. Maybe. But it didn’t end well and they’re done with it, and it’s not like it matters now. They’re not even friends anymore, and they definitely aren’t getting back together.
Adult. Oh wow, this fic is EVERYTHING I needed and wanted after watching the movie. I still can’t believe there isn’t more of this pairing out there, but now I have this, 10k of beautiful development, totally in character.

Nate’s injuries are a lot worse than first expected. While his drift partner is in a coma, Jake comes to terms with what he wants to do now that he’s technically free to leave the PPDC again and a literal world-saving hero to boot.
Everything I’d been wanting in a fic since watching the movie – absolutely wonderful!

The only part of the battle they don’t put into the simulators is the aftermath. He could see it on Jake’s face after they faced Obsidian Fury that first time in Sydney, and again after they destroyed it in Siberia. Still feeling the injuries that were dealt to the Jaeger, but not seeing them on you anywhere. Suddenly standing a hundredth of the height you were just minutes ago.
Adult, post-movie. This is exactly what I needed after watching the movie – perfect character voices, perfect smuttiness!
that’s just how we live in my genre, by achilleees
Hey man – it’s a two bedroom flat, utilities + cable are included in the cost, I’m a dude, there’s no catch. My last roommate wasn’t cool with my job (gay-for-pay porn star) so he ditched, thus the ‘no douchebags’ clause. If you’re that kind of asshole, respond with some homophobic slurs just so I know what I’m getting into. If you’re not, lemme know when you can come by so I can show you the digs. – Raleigh
Explicit, porn star!AU. This had me in stitches from start to finish. Plus it’s insanely hot.
Raleigh is loud as fuck during sex. Mako probably isn’t, but maybe Chuck just can’t hear her over Raleigh’s caterwauling. And Chuck… is not as unaffected by that as he wants to be.
Adult, canon divergence, Raleigh/Mako/Chuck. Chuck lives – right next to Raleigh and Mako. And those two enjoy pegging. It goes about as expected. 🙂 I love Raleigh and Mako as platonic friends, but this is hot as hell.
