Why’d they make you so damn tall?

I was based on the average proportions of all male recruits. It is no fault of my designers or myself that the average happened to be taller than you, Ranger Paul.

more almost human/pacific rim crossover! slashersivi came up with the idea that richard used to drift with valerie before the mxs  were introduced, so valerie dumped him went to work in loccent instead and richard ended up being one of the few people who could drift with an mx (because they lacked a synthetic soul, which i guess switches it around so dorian comes after the mxs???? and is more useful) or you can imagine a fully human crossover idk do what you want

thanks again to everyone who came to the livestream! ahfancon has been a blast, i’ll be sad to see it end

Actually, here’s my headcanon:

MX’s still come after Dorian; Dorian was an experiment to see if they could make an android that could drift with a human (hence the synthetic soul) in order to further reduce the neural load, since it’s easier to make a robot that will have 100% compatibility with someone than find a human pilot, right? But turns out the synthetic soul couldn’t be “customized” to match a person (John was the only one 100% compatible) so they had the same problem as a human pilot, an android was just more easily replaced.

And then the higher-ups were like, but wait, this is still a way for us to have jaeger pilots without spending all this time training and, you know, human lives. So they scrapped the synthetic soul idea and started making MX’s instead, which could be programmed to “drift” with each other and monitored/semi-controlled remotely. After the first few tests with the MX’s to make sure they were a suitable replacement to human pilots, the jaeger program started switching to all-MX pilots. Valerie happily retired to loccent because frankly even though she and Paul were highly drift compatible, they also still fought a lot and piloting was never her passion really, she did it more out of duty.

But Richard? Richard was like “Fuck that, you’re not retiring me.”
and Maldonado was like “uh you can’t pilot a jaeger by yourself, Richard.”
"So gimme a bot."
"… you can’t drift with an MX. They’re not built to drift with humans."
"Watch me." 


UM so there’s that but YEAH I REALLY LOVE THIS PIC A LOT and thank you again for streaming during the con you’re seriously so awesome and I am absolutely enamored with your style.

sorry, i should’ve added that i took bits and pieces and sort of mashed them together with my own explanations too because I couldn’t remember the entire conversation OTL but yeah cool headcanons! and also glad that i’m not the only one who enjoys excessive crossovers :^D

Lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow
Pockets full of stones

day 57: haha i don’t even know what i’m doing

rizupicor sent: Is Valerie wearing a Hannibal shirt omg. I jokingly said to my friend 'looks like Valerie's wearing a Hannibal shirt it still lives in the future' but then I saw the tags and now I'm omg.

!!! YES friend it is indeed a Hannibal shirt! Four for you tumblr user rizupicor! It’s 2048 Hannibal season 36 everyone except Jack, Will, and Hannibal are dead so Jack arrests Will’s dogs.

Long night?

Yeah. I stayed up ‘til four reading through case files. Dreamed I was being chased through the woods by a green-eared spaghetti monster.

AHFancon gift for lineadecuatro! Valerie/Sandra domestic stuff as requested (Valerie’s psych profile says she has trouble with her work/life balance, so I imagine Sandra tries to get her to loosen up but she still gets caught up in work sometimes and Sandra’s just always there for her). The ladies need more love <3

For my giftee who requested Richard and Rudy friendship. ~JM xx

The high pitched trill of Rudy’s phone cuts into the silence of his lab, and for a moment he’s so lost in his head and the circuitry of robotic spy roaches that he doesn’t hear. But Rudy comes back to reality at whiplash speeds and reaches for the phone, elbows knocking into beakers. 

"H-Hello?" Rudy stammers as he jams the phone between shoulder and ear, juggling between holding on to his welding pen and catching a beaker. He drops both and gives a small sigh of disappointment as glass shatters. 

"Beers. Kelly’s bar. Now." 

"What?" It takes a second before Rudy recognizes Detective Paul’s voice on the other end. "I can’t. I have…things to do." His voice raises slightly as it does when he’s trying to get out of something. 

"I’m already outside," Richard replies. "But I mean, if you want to stay stuck underground with your fingers in a bunch of bots, that’s fine. I’m not judging." 

"No, I…I’m coming. Just give me one second." Rudy looks around the room, under his desk, in drawers. 

"I burned your fedora." 

"You what?" Rudy’s voice is laced with disappointment. "It was a nice hat, very comfortable. It’s a classic.”

Richard laughs quietly on the other end. “Friends don’t let friends walk around with outdated wear. Not as ugly as that was.” 

Rudy throws his workshop apron on the desk and grabs his jacket. “It’s vintage,” he says in a rushed breath as he jogs out the door.

Richard reaches across the seat to open the door.”No, my 2020 Jordan’s are vintage. Say a prayer for it.” 

The scientist nearly throws himself into the seat and swallows hard as his stomach growls loudly. “Can we—”

Reaching in the back seat, the detective comes up with a small container. “I knew you didn’t get out and stopped down the street.” 

With a sigh of relief, Rudy opens the container. “Thank you,” he manages to say around a bite of hotdog. “You’re a lifesaver.” 

The engine roars to life and Richard shrugs slightly. “What are friends for?” 

If the kaiju keep coming at this pace, I predict we’ll see a double event in just two days.

Anonymous sent: I find it important that I inform you that, pertaining to your Star Trek Captain Mako Mori drawing, Male crew members are also permitted to wear the Starfleet regulation dresses and you can find a few examples in the Next Generation. I just love it. You're a great artist! Thank you for sharing your work with us.

Oh yeah, someone mentioned that in a reblog! I’m still on TOS season 1 because I’m terrible, but I’ll get around to all the other series sometime (I have a soft spot for Data and Worf already and I haven’t even seen any of TNG yet). Thank you!
