Pacific Rim AU
The US Jaeger Astro Bombshell is piloted by Dr. Jane Foster and Darcy Lewis and with four Kaiju kills under their name in less than three years they have become household names. They are the most unusual team known to date before the odd female duo formed they were sole applicants to the PPDC. They were women with vastly different personalities and reasons to applying to the Jaeger Academy, Foster joined to get closer to understanding the Kaijus and their origins, and although she has a doctorate in Astrophysics the science department didn’t need her so a being a Ranger was it. Lewis joined to get away from her strict neglecting family, she packed her bags and left a note saying ‘Gone fishing’ and never looked back but she would’ve loved to see their faces when she showed up on TV.
They easily survived the Officer training course but then came the physical training Jane worked hard and intensely to become the best sole recruit while Darcy bleed and cried to not be dead last in the Kwoon Combat Room. They were very opinionated of each other Jane found Darcy to be unfit, too young and far too immature for the program and couldn’t believe she lasted the first month. Darcy found Jane to be a bit on the serious side when it can to a lot of things and very hypercritical. It wasn’t until the training got very rigorous that it needed a duo to work together in unison to make the grade. Jane ultimately injured herself due to her pride that she believed she could have finished without anybody; stuck in a pit with an injured knee she was studded to see Darcy above her trying get her out. Darcy hands were cut and blood stained from a previous obstacle but she rode through the pain as she helped Jane out of the sand pit. Darcy didn’t get why she helped Jane Foster, she could had left her but she didn’t and despite being injured they were able to finish in time.
Since that day they had became allies Jane and Darcy worked and spend their off time together. In no time they have became best friends, but Jane still finds Darcy immature but very smart and knowledgeable in spite of her childish behavior. Darcy believes Jane will forever be judgmental and dismissive but she’s so cool and cute when she talks about astrophysics. She looks up to Jane like a big sister she’s always wanted. Before the sole applicant program came to an end they were called on to Drift Sync Testing by a Marshall Hansen, swearing Foster and Lewis seem very compatible from what he’s witness. Jane and Darcy feared they weren’t considering the little time they have known each other and would be cut out of the program, but they were compatible enough to drift surprising many even themselves. In one year time Jane and Darcy slaved themselves to last ten hours inside the drift, and testing range in an actual Jaeger before they were given their Mark-4 Jaeger, and they finally made it from being sole applicants to a strong unified piloting Jaeger duo.
"Science Jane will rip the steering wheel right out from under you and head straight for the center of that vortex of death."
