    Summary

    Connor hesitated, turning to face Gavin and shifting in his seat anxiously, “I usually don’t get rented out more than once and never for so many different reasons.”

    Gavin knew exactly what he was asking and he didn’t dare open his mouth. He couldn’t turn to look at Connor either, just gripped tighter on the steering wheel and fixed his eyes on the traffic light casting red over the dashboard.

    “It’s just that,” Connor continued, “I was just wondering if there is a reason for that.”

    Summary

    It has always been easier for Gavin Reed to hate than to ask for forgiveness, to learn to trust, and to see others as being just as faulty as himself. Gavin has learned to hate his half-brother, androids, and even other people for no fault of their own.
    he was just a spiteful person.
    so how the hell did he end up falling in love with an android he found incredibly annoying?

    (I highly suggest you read "Loyalty of the android" before reading this story because parts will be skipped there have been told in the other story)

    Summary

    After the revolution, Connor is- well, alive. He didn't expect that, and he certainly didn't expect to ever be allowed to be alive. Now he's living in the aftermath of a revolution, and struggling with his newfound emotions, back in his old job at the station. He blames himself for the raid, and the world hates him for being made of plastic. Humans hate him for being an android, androids hate him for acting too human, and he hates himself for a plethora of reasons.

    Can he learn to be alive like everyone else? Can he have a family like Kara? Or fall in love like Markus?

    TW: mentions of non-con, graphic depictions of suicide attempts, canon-typical swearing but now North swears too because- let's be honest, she deserves to swear, also tons of violence because Connor has his job back as a detective, so like, crime scenes and blood licking. Mentions of child abuse and human trafficking because Gavin never has a happy backstory.

    Summary

    Conrad Anderson was born with the innate ability to read human souls, a trait he has successfully suppressed for over a decade - until the first day of his internship with the Detroit Police Department. He and his supervisor are assigned to a missing person's case, one officer Gavin Reed, believed to have been abducted in the dead of night. Within minutes of arriving at the first crime scene of his career, Conrad encounters the disembodied soul of the missing officer, placing him in the unique and challenging position of finding Gavin's body while remaining within the bounds of the law and of the fraught relationship he shares with his father, Hank. To save Gavin's life, Conrad and Gavin must contend with everything they have striven for years to repress or forget...before time runs out.

    Summary

    They say you shouldn't go back to your exes, that you break up for a reason; but Gavin had never been one for taking advice. They also said that the third time was the charm. Sure the first time was a drunken mess that wasn't supposed to happen again, the second was a mistake taken too seriously; so the third time had to go better. Right? Hank was better now, and Gavin liked to think he was too; he wouldn't the one walking away. He was done with being the weaker man.

    Summary

    Nines has grudgingly come to terms long ago with the fact that he was probably going to be alone for a long time. He didn’t particularly like the idea, but it was easier than facing the ugly reality that maybe he was too machine to be capable of showing someone the love that he longed to have for himself. He chooses instead to live vicariously through cheesy romance novels, but it’s not enough. He turns to the only person he is somewhat close to for help. Gavin, surprisingly, agrees to coach him despite having his own relationship issues.

    “Sure. As long as you promise not to fall in love with me or something. Maybe you getting some will make you less of an asshole.”

    It was a joke. Even Nines could see that, but it wasn’t like the two of them got along anyway. It was easy to make that promise. But as he gets to know Gavin outside of work, he finds himself wishing he never made that promise at all.

    Summary

    Hank was typing on his terminal when he suddenly heard someone crying hysterically.
    He looks up and sees Gavin running out of the break room, while crying and looking like he wants to scream.
    Despite the fact that he and Gavin don't get along, Hank decided to help. The last time he saw Gavin cry was when his cat Pancake died, and that was years ago. He gets up and slowly approaches the younger man.
    "Hey, Gavin, what's going on?"
    Gavin just continued crying hysterically while Hank sighs and pat his back.
    "There there.
    Now what's going on?"
    Hank internally cringed at his attempt to comfort Gavin, but he doesn't know what to do, since they're not close.
    Gavin opened his mouth, still crying.
    "Connor just T- Posed at me, turned his voice into mine and asked me on a date."
    Hank just blinked, having no idea how to process this. He rubs his face and wonders why Connor always does the weirdest shit so early in the morning.

    Gavin is still crying hysterically.
    And it's only 9:35 AM.
    Hank needs a drink.

    Summary

    After a sordid history of countless hook-ups and relationships that rarely seem to extend beyond the bedroom, Gavin knows that the world is giving him very clear signs that he was not meant to experience 'real' love. After a break up, he drunkenly fills out what he thinks was a questionnaire on a new hook-up app to meet his ‘perfect match.’ He discovers too late that what he really did was make an order for a 'companion' prototype on Cyberlife’s website and that there’s no refund policy.

    Summary

    The world went spiralling and before Gavin could register what had happened, his shock and fatigue tipped the scale and sent him downwards.
    His legs had failed him, so he landed hard on his knees, trying to catch himself with his hands and spilling coffee everywhere.
    Letting out a pained grunt and inhaling sharply, Gavin looked up to see Nines heading towards the exit.

    "Wait!"

     

    Faced with the death of his father, Gavin reminiscences about his past and finds himself unable to cope. Good thing he has his partner to help him, right after they get into a very necessary fight that helps them see eye to eye again and awakens some feelings Gavin can't quite admit to himself.

    Summary

    It was difficult for Gavin to let his guard down and let people in, which made things difficult since he didn't do well with being alone. He worked during the day and spent his nights chasing comfort from bar and bed to bed. It served him well, he didn't stay the night and he didn't come by the same person twice. Which would have been all well and good until he came across a familiar face. Once night had been all he needed, there was an unspoken comfort in his arms, there were feelings there and Gavin wasn't sure he was ready for that. Not to mention Richard was his boss. Things went from bad to worse, but they always did before they got better. What was the worst that could happen?

    Summary

    Gavin definitely could have pictured a better end to his night. Something less wet and cold. Perhaps something involving a good stiff drink and a good stiff – doesn't matter. It wasn't the time, nor the place to start dwelling on his own sad, lonely existence. Not when he was ankle deep in a puddle of water, watching as thirium was being washed down the sewer drain by an unforgiving downpour. God, it was a blue blooded mess...
