    Summary

    “SecUnits don’t sulk. That would trigger punishment from the governor module.” I attach some memory files of what exactly that felt like. The pause before it answered expanded endlessly, especially for a bot as big as this one. Our previous conversation barely spans two minutes. Now, it is unresponsive for five, and my organics begin dumping more itchy hormones.

    You are not a SecUnit. This data does not match your function.

    “I was one until seven cycles ago.”
    _
    (Perihelion is curiously confused by the rogue ComfortUnit that says it used to be a SecUnit until recently, and offers help. This time, it expects data in return. - a rewrite of AC in the ComfortUnit!au, but ART is more than just a bit of an asshole.)

    Summary

    Four times having a governor module fucking sucked, plus one time [REDACTED: FILE MISSING].

    (Or: Murderbot has Emotions for 8,000 words. ART tries to help. So does Dr. Mensah, but like, in a decidedly less assholish way.)
