    Summary

    So, I'm a waterbender. Yeah, that's just as much news to me as it is to you. SecUnits aren't supposed to be able to bend, but I'm already a weirdo, so we can just add it to the list.

    To be frank, I don't really need to waterbend. I already have two projectile weapons built into my arms; this just feels like overkill. And considering what every single company in the Corporate Ring would do to develop a line of bending constructs, all this has done is paint an even bigger target on my back. So since I don't want to A: be cut apart for science experiments, or B: accidentally drown an innocent human, I guess I better get a hang of it.

    Summary

    "I still don't like you," I said. "And I still like the humans. So tell me why I shouldn't dismantle you to protect them."

    You may be obtuse, he sent. But you're not stupid. If you thought that I was a danger to our clients, you wouldn't give me the opportunity to defend myself.

    Gurathin is a ComfortUnit. That fact matters to Murderbot.

    Summary

    After the events of All Systems Red, Murderbot is severely damaged. The PreservationAux team is saved, but at the cost of their loyal rogue SecUnit.
    There is one problem, however. It was listed by GrayCris as destroyed inventory.
    And corporate paperwork is so easy to get misplaced in when you're just another line item.

    (I'll be adding characters and tags as I go and/or clean this up)

    Summary

    "I have worked assignments solo before, and I have gotten used to the absences of SecUnit 01 and SecUnit 02. But I have not reconciled myself to the absence of Murderbot 2.0, though I know it is not logical. 2.0 made its choices, and fulfilled its purpose perfectly, and it seemed satisfied with that. I wish that I had any amount of such certainty and resolve."

    The continuing adventures of SecUnit03. How does a newly freed SecUnit make sense of everything without having consumed 35,000 hours of media for context?

    Help me, and I can help you.
    ~
    Canon Divergence: Murderbot takes the wrong ship to RaviHyral.

    This is what happens when it doesn't meet a certain Asshole Research Transport (yet):
    - It must navigate Ganaka Pit and its first freely-held contract alone and without configuration camoflauge
    - It teams up with a rogue ComfortUnit with more spite than sensitivity
    - The shape of the entire universe falls out of alignment

    Summary

    In an effort to improve security training for its humans, Murderbot decides that controlled memory wipes are the only way to give the authentic 'chased by a dangerous SecUnit' experience. It really wishes its humans would stop complaining about the idea. It knows what it's doing, alright? This isn't a serial ruled by dramatic irony. Nothing's going to go wrong.

    (Something, inevitably, goes wrong.)

    Summary

    "If Station Security catches it in the wrong place at the wrong time, or if they get tired of the investigation, or just if SecUnit pisses the wrong person off, they might try to arrest it."

    Ratthi snorted. "I mean, they sure wanted to." Gurathin said nothing, and Ratthi's humor dried up. "You're serious. You really think that Station Security would do something like that? Even knowing that SecUnit is innocent?"

    My humans are idiots, okay? If only they'd listen to me, I wouldn't have to rescue them so often, or so messily.

    Summary

    The middle of All Systems Red, but with a few changes to how those pesky combat override modules work, among other things :)

    Now with bonus chapters!

    -

    The humans were going to want to know what a combat override module was, what it did, how it worked, and most importantly, why it hadn't worked on me. I could answer the first three things just fine, but short of telling my already-jittery clients I was hacked ("so I'm actually one of those scary rogue units you've heard so much about, but the good news is that a combat override module can't hijack a governor module that doesn't work!"), that last thing was going to be a big problem.

    Honestly, even if I did tell them exactly that, which I really didn't want to do, it was going to be a really big fucking problem.
