    Summary

    Hank just doesn’t feel like there’s much point in dragging it out or refusing to accept the inevitable. He doesn’t want to live forever, even if CyberLife has pivoted their focus to achieving some version of immortality for humans since the revolution – more PR, because people may be pissed about the android uprising, but they still want to live forever.

    That’s where the Ark came from.

    *

    The revolution failed. Markus, North, and Connor made their stand, and they lost. In the year 2040, Hank is ready to give up. But when he finds Connor alive, his consciousness preserved in the Ark, the digital afterlife CyberLife has developed, it becomes clear that the revolution may not be over yet.

    Summary

    When the android revolution fails, Connor goes to Hank's house to say goodbye. He knows there's no way for him to escape CyberLife and that decommissioning is likely inevitable, but Hank is determined not to let him go. Instead, they try to find a way for both of them to survive, together.

    Summary

    Months before the android revolution comes to a tipping point, an intimacy model is delivered to Hank Anderson's house. Hank doesn't remember placing the order while he was drunk, but after he reluctantly activates the android, Connor slowly puts Hank's home and his life back together. He makes everything better.

    But the deviancy crisis is growing, and the android revolution along with it. Hank doesn't know how to protect Connor from what's happening in the world around them, but Connor doesn't know how to protect him, either.

    Summary

    "Look, you're new," Hank says. "And you're the first android we've had on our payroll. Jeff wanted you back really badly, and so did I, but that doesn't mean other people aren't going to be assholes to you."

    Connor's brow pinches together. "Everyone knows we were partners before. They know we're friends."

    "That's not really what I..." Hank starts, but then he cuts himself off. "Look, you haven't been around for a few months. It's enough time for rumors to take hold, and you have enough stacked against you anyway that we don't need to feed any of that bullshit...okay?"

    Connor runs a small process on the side to determine likely options for what Hank is telling him, although he thinks he already knows. Hank is uncomfortable mentioning it, and rumors tend to be about illicit activities, and it would have to be regarding something Connor might have done that would make Hank favor him at work.

    And he really wasn't expecting to have anyone speculating that he and Hank might be sexually involved, but it doesn't entirely bother him. It's...interesting.

    ~~

    Connor doesn't always know where he belongs or where his home is after the revolution, but he thinks he knows where he'd like to be.

    Summary

    Hank is about to reach for him, even if he doesn't know how it can help, when Connor says, "And how am I supposed to convince someone I'm the prince when I don't even know who I am?"

    "That's what you have us for," Hank offers.

    "I'll...what? Memorize facts about the prince and then regurgitate them, even if they aren't true about me? Lie about stupid things like tea? I just..." He cuts himself off, pushing a hand through the curls hanging over his forehead in frustration.

    "Just what?"

    Connor looks down at his hands, shaking his head. "I just thought someone might know more about me than I do. I thought I could tell the truth about myself and finally have someone fill in all the pieces I don't know."

    "Okay," Hank breathes, grasping him by the shoulder. "It's going to be okay."

    And of course he doesn't know that, but if everything goes according to plan, he and Ben will be long gone with the reward money before he does.

    ~~

    Connor can't remember anything from before he was eight years old, except for vague details and the sense that he's cursed. Hank is down on his luck and just needs to get out.

    Summary

    Hank isn't trying to be in control, Connor realizes a moment later. He's trying to be gentle.

    And that feels even more foreign, because no one has ever worried about being careful with him. He was designed to look gentle when he needs to but not to truly be it, and so no one, not CyberLife or the Amanda AI or anyone after, has ever worried about taking care of him. Even at the squat with the other deviants, he's the lucky one with the unique face model, he's the one who can leave and work and at least pretend. The other androids love him - they're the only family any of them will ever have - but he's always the one taking care of them.

    "Hey," Hank says, running a hand down Connor's arm. "You okay?"

    "I'm okay," Connor whispers, and he thinks he means it.

    ~~

    Connor deviated before ever being assigned to the DPD. He fought with Jericho during the revolution, and they failed. He's trapped in Detroit with the remaining deviants, wandering and aimless and taking unnecessary risks to feel alive.

    So when he meets Lieutenant Anderson at a bar, a hook up seems like just the way to go, even if it does end up meaning so much more.

    Summary

    Hank dives forward, grabbing for the microphone on Tom's headset and pulling it to his mouth. "Our pilot is having a stroke, we're going down, shit..."

    And they are, they're plummeting towards the mountains below now, everything that just looked like white nothingness from far above coming into sharper focus. Connor pushes Hank back, throws him into his seat with a sort of decisive strength Hank wouldn't have expected from him. "Get your seatbelt on."

    They touch down, the underside of the plane scraping violently against the ground. Hank watches as the tail of the plane is torn clean off, opening everything up around them, the winter winds howling and his ears popping violently. They're moving too fast, sliding down the mountain face with too much velocity.

    When they finally hit something that brings them to a stop, it's going to fucking hurt.

    ~~

    Hank Anderson isn't prepared to lay his son to rest, or for the android revolution rising up around him, or for his charter plane to crash and leave him stranded in the mountains. But he especially isn't prepared for Connor.

    Summary

    "I didn't want you to die," Connor says finally, when Hank is right on the brink of sleep.

    He's just plastic , Hank feebly tries to tell himself, somewhere in the recesses of his mind.

    But plastic doesn't want anything.

     

    After Eden Club, before they go to Riverside Park, Hank and Connor go back to Hank's house. They've been orbiting one another for days, and that tension finally comes to a head.

    Summary

    Hank has always been Connor's focal point, hasn't he, the looking glass Connor has used to understand his own experiences and doubts and convictions. It's not to say that they're always in agreement, but Hank, at least, is solid ground, and Connor is adrift with his programming torn down.

     

    Newly deviated, Connor goes to see Hank after the Jericho raid. There are some things he needs to say.
