    Summary

    Most of the code I write is code that I can evolve on the fly. My code to delete me out of security footage, for instance, was something I'd built up over months, adjusting it to different proprietary SecSystems as I encountered them. But this was different: my comm and feed protections were what kept me from falling under anyone else's control, and I couldn't afford to have them be anything but perfect, which was why I was here. If I wanted to fix this vulnerability properly, and I did, there were things that I needed to do that I couldn't do without help.

    In the aftermath of getting hacked, Murderbot asks ART to help it make sure it can't be hacked the same way again. As it turns out, applying and testing a security patch is a little more challenging than usual when the vulnerable system is, you know, your own brain.

    Summary

    ART and Murderbot wanted to spend more time together, so they do. They spend it watching media in ways humans and augmented humans don't understand, and aren't capable of.

    Having real feelings about fake things together is one thing.
    Having real feelings about real things (like each other) and being expected to talk about them (with each other) is something very else.

    Summary

    Adam knew he had kind of a hard time indulging in things. He mostly found that this didn’t cause too many problems - refusing to go out to dinner or buy that new pair of shoes meant more money in his savings account, after all, and that was never a bad thing. It only became an issue when refusing to go out to dinner meant skipping dinner, and not buying that new pair of shoes meant wearing the ones with holes in them for another two months.

    So he was trying to get better. He was trying to get better at wanting things. One of the things he was trying to get better at wanting was Ronan Lynch, because Ronan wanted him, as well, and that, for some reason, turned the want into a different, more pressing kind of hunger. Which was why he was driving to the Barns at just after midnight, coming off of a six hour shift, needing to get up for another one in five hours.

    Summary

    “Surely, my friend, you are familiar at this point with the concept of a vegetable patch?”

    Essek recognises the look on Caleb’s face immediately as one of teasing mischief, and so in turn rolls his eyes instead of getting truly annoyed. “Shockingly, yes. Vegetables are not an unknown entity in Rosohna. Though that does not entirely explain your sudden preoccupation.”

    “Hardly a preoccupation,” Caleb laughs, “Just a thought. One I have been privately entertaining for a while now. It would be nice, don’t you think, to have more food from our own backyard?”

    --

    Bren was a farmer's son once. So too is Caleb.
