    Summary

    “Great,” Reed blew out his cheeks as he exhaled, half to warm them, half to vent his frustration. “No chance of finding anything out there, even at this time.” 

    There’d been a subtle change in Nines over the course of the case. He seemed to acquire a strange new kind of motivation, beyond his preternatural single-mindedness, around the time the third body dropped. Reed couldn’t tell if it was a strange manifestation of frustration with a dead-end case or something else. Regardless, he strongly disliked it.

    “Let’s find out.”

    January, 2041. A two-year stalemate over androids' rights has changed frighteningly little in Detroit. Riots have given way to uneasy peace talks, but with neither side willing to compromise, progress is limited, and crime in the city knows no rest. Nines and Reed are already overworked and tense when the next nightmare falls right into the middle of their unsolved investigation.

    Summary

    Connor hesitated, turning to face Gavin and shifting in his seat anxiously, “I usually don’t get rented out more than once and never for so many different reasons.”

    Gavin knew exactly what he was asking and he didn’t dare open his mouth. He couldn’t turn to look at Connor either, just gripped tighter on the steering wheel and fixed his eyes on the traffic light casting red over the dashboard.

    “It’s just that,” Connor continued, “I was just wondering if there is a reason for that.”

    Summary

    What defines a human? Free will? Empathy for one's fellow man? When those options are removed, what divides human beings and the machines they create?

    It's September 2039, and Connor is slowly but surely finding his place in the world. Gavin is trying just as hard to maintain his.

    Connor has integrated into the DPD, into Hank’s home, and into life as a detective.

    Gavin would rather forget that Connor and Hank exist altogether than watch his former mentor play house with a robot.

    When a distressed suspect nearly kills Hank in the field, Connor and Gavin are assigned as partners in his absence. In order to unravel a pattern of disturbing murder-suicides in Detroit and beyond, they must learn to see past each others faults and find equal ground. The further down the rabbit hole they go, the further the lines that divide human and android will begin to dissolve.

    Tags will be updated along with the story.

    Summary

    Everyone has tried to deviate RK-900 Nines, but nothing has ever worked. Still a machine, Nines can't understand emotions the way everyone else does, what makes him heartless in his every interaction with his partner, Gavin Reed. Detective Reed shows clear signs of mental health issues which makes him difficult to work with. Nines decides he'll become his partner's therapist - or simply someone he can talk to whenever he needs to. Stating that he won't judge him since he's not deviant, Nines will have to try to understand Gavin's emotions to give him insight and advice.

    Surely exposing himself to human emotions won't make a difference, after all nothing has ever made him deviate, right?

    Summary

    Gavin is finally offered a promotion.
    The only caveat: He has to train the new Android for half a year. And he has to stay civil.
    Impossible with those blue eyes staring at him all the time.

    Sergeant seems so close and yet so far away...

    Summary

    Nines has grudgingly come to terms long ago with the fact that he was probably going to be alone for a long time. He didn’t particularly like the idea, but it was easier than facing the ugly reality that maybe he was too machine to be capable of showing someone the love that he longed to have for himself. He chooses instead to live vicariously through cheesy romance novels, but it’s not enough. He turns to the only person he is somewhat close to for help. Gavin, surprisingly, agrees to coach him despite having his own relationship issues.

    “Sure. As long as you promise not to fall in love with me or something. Maybe you getting some will make you less of an asshole.”

    It was a joke. Even Nines could see that, but it wasn’t like the two of them got along anyway. It was easy to make that promise. But as he gets to know Gavin outside of work, he finds himself wishing he never made that promise at all.

    Summary

    Connor is different than any other patient here. He is not like the old drunk, nothing like the broken soldier, and vastly different from the violated fury, not to mention much more stable and aware than the dissociated victim.

    He does not belong here with these people. He does not belong with these people who are broken but innocent. He is not innocent. He is not broken.

    He is dangerous.

    Summary

    I can't do summaries but essentially it's a darker Hank and Connor buddy-cop story with some sci-fi themes that I think would be an interesting debate topic in the DBH universe. Cross-posted on Fanfiction.net

    Summary

    (Translation into English)
    Nothing would make him talk about his feelings for Nines. Even if it meant letting the roots and flowers destroy his lungs. Absolutely nothing! Even if it only meant a death sentence for Gavin Reed...

    Summary

    Гэвин морщит покрасневший нос, растирая его рукавом, но тонкие перчатки на руках натягиваются, грозясь разорваться об колючую щетину.
    Приходится прекратить.
    На влажном дне коробки скручены не только жгуты - есть пара потертых ремней и первый, выхваченный Гэвином, расходится на две узкие полоски - искусственная кожа давно ссохлась. Тогда он вновь огладывается и мысль о том, что подвалы отлично подходят совестливым маньякам расцветает в его голове словно цветок вишни.
    Ни один дух не пожалуется на отсутствие отрицательной глубины захоронения и не станет преследовать тебя всю жизнь.

    Summary

    After the CyberLife store raid, Chris was left traumatized by the event of having a gun pointed at his head and was ordered to take some time off. Gavin -- currently without a partner -- temporarily received a new one... a surprisingly snarky RK900 that was to go for a test drive.

    "Take your time, not in the fast lane
    I understand, that you've been broken
    Too many times, but I'll be waiting
    To mend your wounds, from all you've taken..."

    - 'With You,' Marin Hoxha ft. Chris Linton ♪

    Summary

    "The right partner can make the perfect monster." The RK900 was built to be the ultimate killing machine, which was all well and good up until the Revolution. Deviated and Slightly Reprogrammed, CyberLife’s Latest and Greatest Creation instead takes up a job working as a Detective alongside the DPD’s youngest and most annoying cop. But there are those that would rather see the RK900 back where ‘it’ belongs, and know exactly who to manipulate to control the android.

    Or, Gavin Reed finds out the hard way: Deviant does NOT equal Declawed.

Let's see if he can smitten his partner before the 6th week, before -just like the curse said- he "goes insane".
