    Summary

    It starts like this:
    Geralt Rivia ends up motherless at eight, with a little brother trawling behind him and an estranged uncle taking him in.

    Or maybe it starts like this:
    Renfri is born two months early, scrawny and pale to a father already drinking himself to death and a mother who dies within a day of her birth.

    But really it starts like this:
    The town of Blaviken likes to take people and spit them back up, deciding their lives. Or in simpler words: it's a shit hole, an old mining town in the middle of nowhere in a part of England best known for it's bad weather. Fathers are perpetually drunk or absent and mothers have smiles that don't reach their eyes. Girls drop out at sixteen and are pulled into the half crumbling church with swollen bellies. Boys end up drunk, or stuck in prison, or both. The lucky ones run away or slit their wrists.

    Summary

    “I’m going to suggest something that you won’t like.”

    Gavin grinds his teeth, “That’s how most of our conversations go, tin man.”

    Snow begins falling, slowly. It collects on the tops of Connor shoulders, hides in the dark strands of his hairs. Balances delicately on his eyelashes as he stares at Gavin. He’s tall, resolute, unwavering.

    OR

    The one where Captain Fowler gives Gavin an ultimatum: He can go to therapy and figure his shit out or hand over his badge. It's just Gavin's luck that as soon as his stubborn ass gives in and goes to a session, his life spins out of control. Featuring: being forced to partner with Hank Anderson and Connor on a major case affecting humans and androids, family that he doesn't want to talk to, asshole FBI agents, a stray cat that won't leave him alone, fighting with Connor, worrying about Connor and maybe, sort of, a little bit liking Connor.

    Summary

    Gavin had a hell of a time getting used to Connor. Now he has to deal with a partner of his own? And one that's not even deviant? He did not fucking sign up for this.

    RK900 was programmed to do a job. Just because his orders are different doesn't mean he's a deviant, the thing he was designed to resist at all costs. What Cyberlife didn't plan for was an asshole detective with a nose for trouble.

    Summary

    “Sixty, what have you done?”

    “Well,” Sixty said as he started flicking through the pages. At regular human reading speed, another sign that he was causing trouble. “Fowler kept telling me to get off my ass and pick a last name, and Gavin is always saying that I should pick an awful last name to match my awful first name. So last night I went down to city hall and picked the worst name I could think of. You, my friends, are now looking at Sixty Reed.”

    Summary

    Frigidity, heartlessness. Heartfelt emotions.
    Two sides of a coin.
    Everything he was, everything he wasn’t.
    -
    In which Elijah Kamski is annoyingly cryptic, Hank is an overprotective dad, Markus is just trying to do his best, and Connor is still confused.
    CyberLife, as usual, has its own agenda.

    Summary

    It wasn't surprising that after the revolution, there was still tension between Androids and humans, It was to be expected that some people still were unwilling to accept Androids as a new life form. The two sides still felt some resentment toward each other, though things were beginning to calm down, and slowly society was becoming blended with Androids more and more.
    Gavin Reed, the top detective of the Detroit Police Department was assigned a new case, but he didn't expect that we would be getting a new partner.
    Who just so happened to be an Android.

    Summary

    An incident leaves Connor permanently damaged in a way he'd never imagined. A month on, and he thought he was doing okay. But finding yourself punching walls instead of self destruction doesn’t exactly seem like a healthy way to act.

    Maybe Connor wasn’t doing okay.

    Maybe Connor was in fact, not okay.

    And help, as it turns out, can come from the unlikeliest of places.

    Nathaniel is incredibly close, face mere inches from Gavin's. The android is watching him intently, grey eyes soft and still fond, so fond, he can't hold his gaze, his face feeling far too warm, heart hammering in his chest.

    Summary

    "So, no one's partnered with him ever since then?"

    "No", Connor says thoughtfully, "You know, I don't think anyone even tried again... He mostly files evidence, stands watch over perps outside the holding cells or in the interrogation rooms and... well, as you can see, he has a weird obsession with the coffee machine."
