    Summary

    Gavin swears off androids for the rest of his life and is perfectly content kicking them around and ignoring the tin cans. But then you come along. You treat them like human beings even though they're clearly not and he gets pissed, really pissed. Why treat them so well when you're just doing crowd control with them? Why not treat him better? Why choose them over your own people? He doesn't understand you. Maybe that's why he's intrigued by you. Maybe that's why he has to get to know you better. If not to change your mind about these plastic pieces of garbage, than because he can't stop thinking about you.

    Summary

    Detective Gavin Reed hasn't been dealt the best hand in life. A terrible childhood and a loss that destroyed him left him a bitter, jaded, angry human being who sustained himself purely on caffeine and nicotine. Enter RK900 - incapable of deviancy, the only one of his kind, the android meant to destroy and replace Connor... And wouldn't you know it, Gavin just so happens to need a partner. Of course the universe has to deal him this shit hand, too.

    Loosely based on the song-fic trope.

    "It's like an avalanche
    I feel myself go under
    'Cause the weight of it's like hands around my neck
    I never stood a chance
    My heart is frozen over
    And I feel like I am treading on thin ice
    And I'm going under

    I need a cure for me 'cause a square doesn't fit the circle
    Give me a remedy 'cause my head wasn't wired for this world
    I need a cure for me 'cause a square doesn't fit the circle
    Give me a remedy 'cause my head wasn't wired for this world

    I'm going out of frequency
    Can anyone respond?
    'Cause I'm going out of frequency
    Can anyone respond?"

    Summary

    Baby, come on over to me
    Come set me free
    Baby, come on, got what I need
    Hands all over me, oh
    Save me from my personal hell (yeah, yeah)
    Break me, break me out of myself (yeah, yeah)
    Touch me, only your hands make me come alive
    -
    Now Gavin Reed a harsh detective of the DPD, the top hater of the newest fad, androids, could barely deal with one. Connor was the first droid he had met-- not kindly mind you- so truly it was no surprise that his superiors decided that it was time to change that. That damn heathen of a Captain named Fowler decided to foolishly assigned the infamous man known for barking up the wrong trees an android partner the RK900. It was quite the looker that Gavin couldn't help but MAYBE like it. That inexpressive voice that only shifted when it was giving painstakingly boring info, those bodacious blue eyes that could freeze hell over.
    What sort of treachery was his head playing at? A sickening trick, and it just wouldn't stop. Thus, who would've guessed that the king of snarky quips and coffee would become a lover of one particular cold android? None, but you know what they say, opposites really do attract.

    Summary

    After the CyberLife store raid, Chris was left traumatized by the event of having a gun pointed at his head and was ordered to take some time off. Gavin -- currently without a partner -- temporarily received a new one... a surprisingly snarky RK900 that was to go for a test drive.

    "Take your time, not in the fast lane
    I understand, that you've been broken
    Too many times, but I'll be waiting
    To mend your wounds, from all you've taken..."

    Summary

    We do all know the Canonical story of the game and its different possible endings. But what if, due to a different set of circumstance that had happened, a different kind of Gavin Reed ended up existing.

    That the Gavin Reed that ended up living wasn't normal and didn't belong to the world it currently lived in. What kind of life would this Gavin have with the way how different he is from the canonical norm?

    (A/N: This has a prequel titled "Detroit: Become Human_Gavin's Adoptive Children." This is the second part of the series this story is under in. That story is about Gavin's time gaining his kids and how they are which would later on affect the the first story of the series.)

    P.S: The first few chapters may seem to be so far from the canon. But I made it like that to emphasize how this story's Gavin has a different backstory from the others. Moreover, the plot of this would later on converge to the point which the canon DBH happened and a number of the readers know.

    Summary

    There's a sickness going around Detroit, and it catches you.

    At least, that's what Nines discovers on a solo mission gone wrong. Maybe things would've gone differently if Gavin had been there, but he had his hands full helping the rookie recover from their nearly fatal run-in with a gang of thugs out for revenge. Something tells him that maybe this case was always meant to go wrong, though.

    Gavin is doing his best helping the kid, but it's not like it'll ever be good enough. Rifts keep forming between him and everyone he tries to care about, and it feels like he can't do anything to fix it. Group that in with the ever-increasing rate of android-related crimes, and it's no surprise that he's on his last nerve. No one fucking believes him except Nines, which, given their history, makes no fucking sense at all. He's almost too tired to notice the prying eyes that have started following him on the streets.

    This is a story about the bonds we make- how they can act as a safety net...or just as easily become the noose around a throat.

    Summary

    Gavin isn’t a normal person.

    In this AU, our lovable asshole was born with abnormal quirks which make his life much harder than they should. Gavin goes through harassment and humiliation, meeting a lot of horrible people. But some make life worth the hardships, even if it’s just for one moment with them.

    A new and improved (hopefully) version of Scent of You, now with a very detailed backstory, so much gayness, and some dark, dark times. Hope you enjoy :)

    Summary

    A hand ran up and down his back, and a deep tone in a low whisper sounded next to the shell of his ear. “It’s ok. Everything will be fine. You are ok.”
    Gavin forced himself to peer at the eyes of the stranger. He knew the owner of such striking sapphire-blues had never crossed his path; he’d remember if he did. “Who- who… are- you?”
    “I still don’t know that,” the stranger answered, his hold tightening minutely.
    “I- I don’t know who I am... a- anymore.”
    “Maybe we can help each other figure that out.”
    “M- maybe.”

    Gavin’s life had been going down a spiral until December 2038. He was a hollow shell of who he used to be. When the last ever created android saved him in a true guardian angel manner, his life was turned upside down. Now, a year later, unexpectedly, said android had never left. 2039 would be Nines’ first real Christmas and he was determined to turn this the best Christmas ever known for Gavin and himself.

    Summary

    Gavin and RK spend their first Christmas together! Although they aren't the type of couple to go gung-ho during the holidays, Gavin caves when RK shows him the list of festive things that Connor made.

    RK thought Gavin didn't like the holidays because it messed with his whole 'tough guy' persona. Little did he know, Gavin's past begins to resurface as Christmas draws closer.

    Aka, a story with a plot that revolves around a Christmas Advent List (:

    Summary

    It wasn’t sneered at him, not thrown his way like a growl either. It kind’ve sounded like how Tina teased Gavin, yes that was precisely it. It sounded a lot like that.

     
    Was Gavin…joking with him? Was this a term of acceptance? Of trust?

     
    Why had it made him giddy and flushed-

    Summary

    After an exhausting and embarrassing case, Gavin needs a peaceful evening, but his brother has other plans. Elijah had not forgotten what happened between Gavin and RK900 and now he has a special gift for Gavin's birthday. A stressful diner is waiting for them.
    ++++++++++++

    As if it were the most natural thing in the world, Elijah fucking Kamski went through the police station, as if he owned the place. Without any bodyguard or his usual escort android.

    Now it was over.
    His brother had come to ruin his life. Probably just out of a damn mood.

    ++++++++++++

    The front man with an old-fashioned cane was nobly dressed in a long black coat with a dark red collar. Underneath he wore a dark gray vest and matching suit trousers. The stiff, white collar of his shirt was complemented by a dark red tie. His dress shoes had been polished to shine. His black hair was combed back, his sides were cut shorter. The narrow face was framed by a dense beard, which looked well-groomed. A broad forehead was followed by low-set eyebrows, which gave him a serious look and underlined the intelligent expression of the gray blue eyes.
    “Gavin? Do you greet your father in this way?”

    Summary

    Decide Who You Are is Part One of the Mutual Trust series.

    Mutual Trust is set post-game after the androids have peacefully won the revolution. Connor is deviant and living with Hank while still working at the DPD. An unfortunate accident at a riot brings Connor to Elijah Kamski's door, in desperate need of repairs. After a couple of interactions, Connor decides to test one of Elijah's projects for him, agreeing that they have a relationship built on mutual trust. Their relationship blossoms into something more with every meeting. Markus leads New Jericho with the weight of the world on his shoulders and Simon is right by his side, to help alleviate some of his responsibilities and teach him how to delegate his work, while also struggling with his past and trauma he's endured at the hands of Connor. And later, Gavin is partnered up with a newly discovered RK900 model, who has been turned deviant before being sent to the DPD. They discover a new strain of Red Ice that is linked to a large number of android disappearances and deaths.
