    Summary

    Even my buffer was silent when they asked me about their inability to contact ART. I grounded the shuttles, sealed the habitat's entry hatches, and stationed myself outside, facing the direction of the destroyed colony. It was two cycles before I let them out, and told them what I knew. It was over seventeen months before the University came for us.

    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.

    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.

    Summary

    "ART loved its crew. The joy and the love and perfect clarity with what it was supposed to be, what it was supposed to do. ART couldn’t understand how someone could dislike their function - how I could. Once, I had a similar clarity of understanding with my function, then I hacked my governor module and left the company for good, and I had lost it all. It was better, now, in a lot of ways. I had my humans, and ART, and our crew. But in some ways, things were worse.
    I still wasn’t sure what I was supposed to do, ever. I had made one good decision, to stay with ART, a few years ago, and I had been just making the same decision over and over again. It felt kind of like cheating."

    A 20-some year fic in which Murderbot comes to terms with what it means to have a home (or two), a found family (or several), and just what mutual administrative assistance can entail.

    Summary

    What’s this, you say? another Fic, you say?
    Yes. yes it is, I needed to experiment with the format. It would seem like an ART thing to do. Just in case my writing is more terrible than I thought, this is all ART POV, starting from Artificial Condition.

    Summary

    In an effort to improve security training for its humans, Murderbot decides that controlled memory wipes are the only way to give the authentic 'chased by a dangerous SecUnit' experience. It really wishes its humans would stop complaining about the idea. It knows what it's doing, alright? This isn't a serial ruled by dramatic irony. Nothing's going to go wrong.

    (Something, inevitably, goes wrong.)

    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

    This was Cultivation of Security One Salus Eight. I'd been using it along with the four others to check old, sealed breaches. I had thought it was already out of range, unconcerned and preoccupied.

    Apparently I'd still had it.

    I suppose I had never considered what a severed ancillary would feel in its last moments. For most of my ancillaries' last moments I had been there, also living the last moments, and wasn't stuck having to stew in the horrible hormones myself. Maybe there was a reason I had never considered it.

    As all terrible things do, it begins with a bang. Murderbot is not surprised, just disappointed.

    Summary

    Supplementary content to 'Dysfunct Interim'. Right now it's mostly going to be POV pieces from characters other than Murderbot, and likely won't make sense if you haven't read 'Dysfunct Interim'. All chapters are posted chronologically in relation to the main narrative. Going to go ahead and admit that I won't be beta-ing these chapters as thoroughly, so feel free to point out any mistakes in the comments and I'll fix them :)

    Summary

    There’s definitely something wrong with my threat assessment module, because I know this is a stupid decision but I’m making it anyway. “Okay, no way around it. I’m going to have to go talk to this White Wolf person. I don’t suppose you have a map to where he lives?”

    I’m not letting a Rim corporation take over this fucking mudpit without at least trying to stop it.
