    Summary

    Jessica’s hand curls into a fist. “It wasn’t my fault,” she says, very low and very, very hard. “You blame it on me and I swear to God—"

    “My brother thinks I’m dead. My aunt’s paying me a couple hundred bucks a month to keep it that way.”

    Jessica’s fist uncurls. Her eyes stay hard.

    Hope’s almost enjoying this, spewing all the boiling bitter ugliness no amount of therapy, meds, or schnapps can fix, but her next words make her want to spit.

    “I’m your problem now.”

    Summary

    Insanity was not the only side effect of the memory chip, though Simon doesn't entirely discount that that's what this is. He keeps it secret, either way. Empathy or insanity, neither are weaknesses he's sure he can afford. It helps keep him alive, either way, and perhaps at some point he'll last long enough for it not to be a weakness at all.

    Vaguely Shards of Honor era AU where the installation of the chip gives Simon minor psychic abilities. More than his usual, I mean.
