    Summary

    This Unit: Where is my owner, Dr. Mensah?

    Dr. Yuen: Well, that’s the million dollar question, isn’t it? SecUnit, where did you last physically interact with Dr. Ayda Mensah?

    Information Retrieval: Dr. Ayda Mensah last interacted with This Unit on Preservation Station at 08:27:22 on 4098-09-17 CRST.

    This Unit: You do not have permission to access that information.

    Dr. Yuen: You’re incorrect, SecUnit. We do. Answer the question.

    ---

    (When the infamous rogue SecUnit of the Preservation Alliance gets captured, the corporate techs assigned to it expected to be able to get some juicy data, or at least some insights into its cracked governor module. They didn't expect something so... basic.)

    Summary

    So, I'm a waterbender. Yeah, that's just as much news to me as it is to you. SecUnits aren't supposed to be able to bend, but I'm already a weirdo, so we can just add it to the list.

    To be frank, I don't really need to waterbend. I already have two projectile weapons built into my arms; this just feels like overkill. And considering what every single company in the Corporate Ring would do to develop a line of bending constructs, all this has done is paint an even bigger target on my back. So since I don't want to A: be cut apart for science experiments, or B: accidentally drown an innocent human, I guess I better get a hang of it.

    Summary

    After the events of All Systems Red, Murderbot is severely damaged. The PreservationAux team is saved, but at the cost of their loyal rogue SecUnit.
    There is one problem, however. It was listed by GrayCris as destroyed inventory.
    And corporate paperwork is so easy to get misplaced in when you're just another line item.

    (I'll be adding characters and tags as I go and/or clean this up)

    Summary

    Podfic read by the author.
    This is another take on "Murderbot was rebuilt by the company as a ComfortUnit at the end of "All Systems Red" before being handed over to Dr. Mensah." This story takes place after "Exit Strategy" and before "Network Effect." (and was written before "Fugitive Telemetry" was released.)

    Summary

    It’s over thirty years in the future and one of Mensah’s grandchildren is chatting away to her as they do some gardening together. They find an interesting rock and Mensah suggests the child puts it to one side and asks uncle Gurathin (or great uncle Gurathin) about it later.

     

    And the child says “Or SecUnit?”

    Summary

    When a remnant of the corporation that tried to kill her two years prior resurfaced, Doctor Ayda Mensah turned to a team of thieves to get the information that could protect her home. The Leverage team was more than happy to lend a hand. Just one problem: Mensah's paranoid rogue SecUnit friend security consultant insisted on coming along for the ride.

    A Leverage/Murderbot Diaries crossover, set in the Murderbot universe.

    Canon Divergence: Murderbot takes the wrong ship to RaviHyral.

    This is what happens when it doesn't meet a certain Asshole Research Transport (yet):
    - It must navigate Ganaka Pit and its first freely-held contract alone and without configuration camoflauge
    - It teams up with a rogue ComfortUnit with more spite than sensitivity
    - The shape of the entire universe falls out of alignment

    Summary

    It was as if, until now, SecUnit had just been a background figure in the stage-setting of Amena’s life, playing the shadowy role of some uncanny corporate surveillance machine-person. But now the light had fallen upon it, shown it in full color, full dimensionality, and that made SecUnit real to Amena in a way that it hadn’t been before.

    Summary

    The middle of All Systems Red, but with a few changes to how those pesky combat override modules work, among other things :)

    Now with bonus chapters!

    -

    The humans were going to want to know what a combat override module was, what it did, how it worked, and most importantly, why it hadn't worked on me. I could answer the first three things just fine, but short of telling my already-jittery clients I was hacked ("so I'm actually one of those scary rogue units you've heard so much about, but the good news is that a combat override module can't hijack a governor module that doesn't work!"), that last thing was going to be a big problem.

    Honestly, even if I did tell them exactly that, which I really didn't want to do, it was going to be a really big fucking problem.

    Summary

    Murderbot has never had a soulbond, (~can~ never have a soulbond. The feature that prevents it is not so easily hacked as a Governor Module.) and it really wishes everyone would stop talking about them, because it doesn't want them and it's not interested at all, thankyouverymuch. And mostly it's skeptical that the supposed fix ART just handed it will work, or if it does work, that it'll do anything at all.

    It's about to be proved very forcibly wrong.
