    Summary

    Life is difficult to navigate, and more so when every piece of stability you have in life crumbles around you. Without Cyberlife and his directives to dictate his life, Connor starts becoming overwhelmed by his independence. Surprisingly, it's Gavin Reed who helps him understand what it means to have control over one's life and how to want happiness. The human's presence and efforts to change his own ways adds another layer of confusion though, as Connor wonders why Reed has become so important to him and his concept of strength, control, and authenticity.

    It takes an android panic attack, three conversation, a cup of coffee, a bottle of gin, and a kiss for Connor to figure it out and the answer is annoyingly simple.

    (Or: The One Where Connor Realizes He's Allowed To Be Happy)

    (Companion fic to A Scratched CD, from Connor's POV. Can be read standalone.)

    Summary

    The adjustment hasn't been easy for anybody. Just over a month after Markus' successful revolution, and things are starting to go back to normal in Detroit. No one's holding back on their holiday celebrations. They all need the distraction.

    It's Connor's first Christmas at the DPD, and most of the precinct's quickly changed their tune about the android; Fowler even invited him to the annual Christmas party. Presents, carols, and holiday spirit abound! Connor thinks he's starting to enjoy himself.

    Of course, the resident Scrooge, Gavin Reed, has to get in the way of all that.

    Summary

    “Third base?” You can almost hear Connor's brow wrinkle. “What does baseball terminology have to do with 'flirting’?”

    You are a detective at the DPD and you are Definitely Not developing Feelings™ for a certain RK800 prototype.

    Connor is an android who is completely clueless about all things romantic.

    Hank is stuck working (extremely unwillingly) with the two of you on the deviant investigation.

    Gavin is just a dick.

    Summary

    'Linking memories with the Tracis’ had unexpected side effects on Connor. The Eden Club had the policy of deleting the memories of their androids every 2 hours but gaining 2 hours’ worth of the memories of more than 5 Tracis left Connor with a bounty of information about human intimacy. Information he did not understand, and that made him curious.'

    Torn between trying to understand a wave of new desires and uncovering the deviant movement as hackers destroy all the information they can access about deviants, Connor has to come to terms with the fact that maybe he isn't as much of a machine as he thought.

    Summary

    Connor couldn't figure you out and that bothered him, more than he was willing to admit. Usually, he didn't care whether he was close to someone or not, but then, they weren't you and they weren't working with him all the time. Every time you were near, he would ache to hear you open up to him, to give a few details of your personal life that he knew nothing about, but you gave away nothing - nothing - and he failed to compute why. Now, there was only one thing to do. He would do whatever he had to to get to know you - that was his mission and he always completed his mission.

    Summary

    “I'd like to inform you that, according to our instructions, we'll start tomorrow at 9 a.m. I suggest we put up a more...united front, or else I suspect we won't appear very believable as a couple."

    Inexplicably, Gavin smirked at that.

    "Trust me, Barbie", he nodded, "we will."

    Summary

    Death.

    Hank really should've gotten used to Connor's deaths by now but this time it was different, there was no more models of the RK-800 left for Connor's memory to be reuploaded into. This meant Connor was gone for good.

    Or was he?

    Summary

    //MISSION RECAP REQUESTED//

    ...PROCESSING REQUEST...

    [REQUEST APPROVED]

    ...INITIALIZING DATABASE...

    Connor mused over the facts one more time.

    With a do-or-die gamble, androids had secured a future. They were alive. They were equal. Maybe one day, they would even be respected.

    The deviants of Jericho, especially, were flourishing under their newfound free will. Connor now saw something new in their faces - something bright, something colorful - despite his lenses informing him that they looked the same. Even the androids Markus had only recently converted seemed to be “growing into their skin.” [IDENTIFIED: HUMAN IDIOM NO. #31]

    Androids had found strength in numbers, in love for one another, in happiness, in anger, in forgiveness, in freedom.

    ...

    So why was he getting weaker?
