    Summary

    Kepler passes a folder to each crewmember, waiting for them to crack the files open before he speaks. "Our first order of business" he says, standing at the head of the table, "is getting a few programs out of the crossfire. Non-negotiable."

    "Good afternoon to you too, Colonel." Jacobi grumbles, already reading. "How was your day, Jacobi? Oh, you know, same as always. Thanks for asking, sir, really makes us feel like you care."

    Daniel is just a barista, not a family psychologist.

     

     

    Chap 10:

     

    "The Silent Storm?" Daniel questioned, reading the stenciled print on the bass drum.

     

    "Shut up." Ryan told him.

    Daniel Jacobi thinks getting high with your best friend and your boss shouldn't feel this way, right? Unless you're in love with both. In that case...

    Summary

    Years ago, as part of her thesis statement, she'd uploaded an old AI skeleton that she'd coded back in college. Bits of that had gone on to be in Artemis, and while it absolutely needed improvement, she knew it was relatively stable. Translating the neural map into something useful was already going to make the project unstable on its own, so alpha testing some new skeleton on top of that was stupid. Modernity and advancement could come later, for now she just needs to try things. See what sticks.

    This is the second longest part of the Apollo project. It's a back and forth between her and her nice new clean room computer; her struggling to make anything stick, and the computer testily throwing up errors.

    Summary

    Working for Goddard as "one of the best" is a lot of things. Insane, Dangerous, Evil, Important, and most of all? Fun. Kepler, Maxwell, and Jacobi loved their job, for all of it's flaws. Sure they have to do pretty awful stuff, but it's all about the big picture. Sometimes, to make an omelette you have to break a few eggs; you might as well enjoy cracking them.

    We Try Not To Be Monsters is a very episodic fic in which each chapter is a different mission the SI-5 have to undertake. From hiring to family, Maxwell having to defuse a bomb to the pains of destroyed friendship, the SI-5 crew grow more and more accustomed to the way things run at Goddard. They become better at their jobs, and worse people.

    Summary

    With the star known as Wolf 359 long behind them, the remaining crew of The Hephaestus returns home with hope for long awaited peace and reunions. Unfortunately, their battle is not quite over yet. With the deaths of their leaders and no instructions on how to continue, the people left at Goddard Futuristics scramble to fill the power vacuum left behind by Cutter, Rachel, and the now "out of service" Dr. Pryce. Those who take charge are not keen on losing it, particularly to a broken crew set on taking Goddard down once and for all.
    Limits were tested in space, but Earth is a new playing field. One where problems cannot be solved by having our AI flood a room with gas or by pushing someone out of an airlock. On Earth, the rules are not made by whoever is holding the gun, and your loved ones are available targets for someone looking to send a message.
    And somewhere deep in space, something moves.

    Summary

    The Fair Folk aren't unknown. They haven’t been hidden in over a century, most of the “Fae Rights” campaign long over with. There’s lingering prejudice, of course, but when Doug’s middle school gym class has their swimming unit and Doug’s sides split with gills, his classmates just mutter about how bad their times are going to look next to a mer’s and move on.

    Doug doesn’t correct their one misconception. He’s not merfolk; he’s a siren. He eats sushi all the time because otherwise he might be hungry for them.
    ~
    [Daniel] passes as human very, very well, apparently, that not even a creature that feeds on life energy realizes he’s immortal.
    ~
    Renee Minkowski sits in a café in Paris in 1948. The city is still recovering from World War II, and she anxiously reads a newspaper about the latest of the Fae coming forward. So far, she hasn't been asked to fly over the City of Lights and roost in the Eiffel Tower, so she assumes that the Faerie Courts don't want dragons in the open yet.

    Summary

    “You have been weighed on the scales and been found wanting.”
    - Daniel, 5:27

    Summary

    At first, getting shot had been an inconvenience—annoying, painful, and stupid, but not world-ending. Maxwell’s reaction, however, was shaping up to be seriously apocalyptic.

    Kepler is injured on a mission and discovers that he's not human. He's a project intended to test just how skilled Pryce is at creating artificial intelligence—could a robot think it was really a person? Yes, and that person is gunning hard for revenge. But like everything Kepler does, this revenge has to be perfect. If only there was something Pryce and Cutter really cared about that he could destroy to make them regret everything they had ever done. If only he knew what they really wanted.

    Summary

    "Other than Maxwell," Kepler says, "who was in the office with us when the lights went out during Hurricane Arthur?"

    Jacobi's got his hands up, and he's not exactly loving the wary, serious look Kepler has on him or the way he's got one hand resting on the butt of his pistol, but it's better, he supposes, than being immediately chained to the bulkhead. "We weren't in the office," he answers promptly, corners of his lips curving up at the hint of approval in Kepler's eyes, "we were in Vancouver."

    Summary

    It took sixty-one days for the Urania to make it back to Earth from the smoldering remains of the Hephaestus Station. With the constant threat of Goddard Futuristics looming over their shoulders, the remaining Hephaestus crew do their best to survive on an Earth that can’t know they’re alive. Will they survive their reunion with gravity and unlimited oxygen? Will Goddard Futuristics find their hidden location and finish the job Cutter started? Will the ghosts of their pasts take care of Goddard’s loose end for them? Plus cabin fever, identity crises, poorly handled emotional trauma, and the crushing weight of survivor’s guilt.

    Summary

    Cutter can almost feel the wheel of forward progress turning faster. He’s no closer to the answers he wants, but he has time now. That human franticness is gone. He can be patient. He can wait to see if anyone else can see what he can.
