    Summary

    “The fuck was that?"

    “How should I know?" Stede laughed mirthlessly, a bit hysterically even. "Octopus arms are high fashion; no one is doing it yet. I’m a trendsetter.”

    Ed smiled at the gallows humor and reached out a hand to Stede, which he took with a grateful squeeze. “Hey, you wanna do something weird?”

    The arms undulated nigh imperceptibly. "I think we’re well past that, dear."

    Stede is cursed and grows tentacles. That's it, that's the fic.

    This is a pure, teeth-rotting fluff/smut comedy.

    Summary

    Ed is an engineer aboard the Revenge, an interplanetary research vessel on a multi-year mission to study Jupiter's moon Europa. An accident requires that Ed awaken from cryostasis over six months early, and finds his only companion to be Stede, the ship's onboard AI. They develop an unconventional friendship, but is it possible to have more?

    This is classic mutual pining with a sci-fi twist, inspired by all of my favorite stories about the nature of personhood.

    “You–” Ed was struggling to parse what Stede was saying. “You’re playing your version of this song for me, right now? Like, in real time?”

    “Yes, Edward, that’s correct,” said Stede softly.

    Ed’s brain momentarily seized up. He supposed it made sense that Stede was capable of learning a set of rules to do something like arrange and play a piece of music. There was something unnerving about this song, though. It felt, well–it felt organic . Reactive. Almost collaborative in a way. Ed was lost in the push and pull of it, until the last notes softly petered out.

    “So, what did you think?” asked Stede. It sounded nervous again. Why the hell would someone program an anxiety response into a bot?

    Summary

    Stede ran a hand down Ed’s partially corseted back, where the curve of a hip was blooming. “My, you’re pretty.”

    “Mmph,” Ed said, knocking his forehead against the wall. His hand disappeared in front of him, his elbow pumping once. “Make me prettier.”
