    Summary

    Markus just wants to get to know Connor. Connor wants to get to know Connor, too, but CyberLife is never going to leave them alone. Kidnapping Markus, hacking Connor in new and exciting ways, paying agents to undermine Jericho; it never ends. Elijah Kamski--or, more to the point, Chloe--might have a few secrets to bring CyberLife down for good. But those secrets unearth something inside of Connor that even he didn’t know was there, and it makes Amanda look like a flimsy piece of code in comparison.

     

    Also, Chloe has a crush on North.

    Summary

    “Just… don’t run any more red lights,” says Todd with a sort of resigned weariness as Dirk runs out of things to say. Todd sounds like he’s too tired to care anymore, like a meteor could drop out of the sky and he would just shrug and keep slouching. Something about it reaches straight inside of Dirk and rips at an old, old scab, and Dirk realizes with sudden, gut-wrenching certainty what it is about Todd that bothers him so much.

    Todd, Dirk realizes, reminds him of Svlad. Todd reminds him of himself.

    -------------

    A decade ago, Svlad Cjelli almost gave up. Now, Dirk Gently thinks he can stop Todd from doing the same thing.

    Summary

    Something was wrong with Todd.

    Dirk knew this in the same way that he sometimes knew the universe was calling: nothing he could point to exactly, just a heightened awareness and a restless feeling in his bones. Todd still showed up late to the agency and drank too much coffee and insisted that Dirk not do stupid things like run into traffic or break into federal prisons, but in quiet moments, Dirk felt he was a bit… off.

    Also, there was the matter of the iguanas.

    Todd is having an existential crisis. Dirk decides to help.

    Summary

    "Connor became ‘woke’, as the kids say, on a biting December morning. Upon careful consideration, he determined it was best not to tell anybody."

    List of things Connor has ruined since he deviated: the police force. Hunts for deviants. The printer. Lieutenant Anderson’s patience. Gavin Reed’s kneecap. The sense of safety and security that came when you were not acting as a double agent for the month old yet still unsuccessful terrorist organization and spilling confidential government secrets. The coffee machine. His life.

    Mostly his life.
