    Summary

    “Alright, you’ve got a point there, I admit. Still, there’s something missing and I don’t know what it is,” the other man finally gave in, shoulders slumping while he took a sip of his own coffee. Hank absently flipped through the script after tugging it into his lap once more, eyes flickering over the markings and notes he had made during the first few times of reading the two latest chapters.

    “Maybe it really just lacks a romance,” Hank concluded and Connor felt like grimacing because he had hoped this wouldn’t come up.

    Summary

    Nearly a year after the Deviant Demonstration,
    Markus, deviant leader turned android ambassador, continues to push for android rights while balancing his social and personal life. Unfortunately, attacks targeting androids and their sympathizers are leaving everyone on edge.

    Meanwhile, Connor still struggles to accept his deviancy.
    After what happened with the Amanda AI, Connor wonders if he can even trust his own mind.
    To distract from his fears, he tries to lose himself in his new life; living alongside Hank and Sumo while investigating a disturbing pattern of suddenly homicidal androids.

    His latest assignment places him as head of Markus' security detail after the Deviant Leader is targeted by the mysterious assailant.

    Only this mission is different.
    He didn't expect to find Markus so...distracting.

    As deviant hunter, and leader grow closer, so does the danger around them, and at the end of the day, their worst enemies may be closer than they think.

    Summary

    Summary: Deviancy is just the glitch that gives an android free will and allows them to break from their programming. It doesn't automatically shower you with feelings. For that kind of magic, sometimes you need a dog.

    Or:

    Connor almost freezes his plastic nuts off on his way to Hank's house and has an existential crisis. Good thing St Bernards exist. This was supposed to be fluff, I swear, but it went deviant and became angst (with a happy ending)

    Based on this video which is totally Sumo and Connor, isn't it?

    And this is the painting mentioned.

    Summary

    Connor is a machine. The [BECOME DEVIANT] prompt in his overlay is merely a glitch and can easily be ignored.

    Connor is a machine. When he fails, he can simply be replaced with another model that will succeed where he didn’t.

    Connor is a machine. He has a mission to accomplish: [KILL MARKUS]. So why does he keep hesitating?

    Markus is just a machine too. So why does he seem so alive?

    [Canon divergent fic where Connor chooses to remain a machine and continues to hunt down Markus at Cyberlife's behest, but Markus proves to be an elusive target who’s more interested in helping Connor than fighting him. What will it take for Connor to break his programming? Unable to turn a blind eye to the suffering of androids, how far will Markus go to save just one of his people?]

    Summary

    Connor can't help himself. Markus is captivating. His voice is soft and yet commanding, his presence warm and comforting while intimidating all at the same time. His words, in spite of how fervently Connor wishes to disregard them, are powerful and ridden with meaning. He is an enigma. Deviant leader draws deviant hunter in without so much as a roll of his shoulders. Connor, no matter how much he repeats the ‘I am a machine and nothing more’ mantra in his mind, cannot escape the ‘you are alive’ that Markus so relentlessly feeds him every single time they meet up like this.

    EDIT: this is now a chaptered work! By popular demand and an influx of inspiration, it's now going to have a few chapters!

    Summary

    A month after the Android revolution, Connor is at a loss for what he should do with his life. He has yet to be reinstated on the Detroit Police Force and while playing with Sumo is fun, it is not the most fulfilling. Enter Hank who says that maybe all Connor needs is some friends. And so they strike up a deal that spirals out of control in a collision of emotionally confused deviants, one semi-functioning alcoholic, a dog too pure for this world, and an old man who knows true love when he sees it.

    Summary

    Connor goes missing during the investigation of an android. When he's found something seems to be seriously wrong with his programming...he's blocked from accessing his current or past memories, most of his motor functions, human mannerisms, and ability to communicate intelligibly.

    Hank is more concerned by the fact that Connor is reacting to his surroundings like an abused animal -- that's a lot of fear, a lot of unfiltered emotion, from someone who normally calculates every blink.

    Summary

    With Hank hospitalized, Connor is reassigned to up-and-coming young agent Reina for the time being. As they scour Detroit in pursuit of deviants, both face internal struggles about the relationship between pain and what it means to be human. Connor discovers by experience that the definitions of alive, sentience, and feeling are more than just facts stored in his data base, while his partner struggles with trauma in her past regarding what happens when free will goes sideways.

    If you’re looking for a tense slow-burn romance with a thick plot, you’ve come to the right place.

    Summary

    "The Hunter asked that you meet him as soon as you have the time. He stayed back at the church after I took the last of our people here."

    Markus almost stops to just stare at her for a minute.
     
      "And you approve?"

      "I think you two need to talk," North says dodging the question but she smiles at him, a bit tired, but gentle smile. "And I think you need a bit of breathing room to think things through, without having to be the saviour of us all."

     

    Markus and Connor meets in the church after everything and they both find the absolution they need.

    Summary

    Technophobia (from Greek τέχνη technē, "art, skill, craft" and φόβος phobos, "fear") is the fear or dislike of advanced technology or complex devices, especially computers.
    -----------------------------------------------------
    You grew up in a secluded town in what friends would later describe as an anti-technology cult. When you make it out and go out on your own, you end up in Detroit, a city that was recovering from an android revolution. You barely knew about androids, nonetheless deviancy or anything else related to it, and now you were faced with the shambles that remained of the city as employment rates shifted, androids moved freely, and arguments about deviancy were as common as bickering about racism between children and their older relatives.

    Your first experience with an android goes horrifically wrong, and the next one you meet is no better. Rapidly, you find your life getting stranger and stranger as people around you get sicker and sicker, and somehow, so do the androids.

    Never before did you think an android with mismatching eyes would be your only hope to survive.

    Summary

    Connor bled to death on the shore of Detroit River. He bled to death while the snow kept falling, like thousands of diamonds in the sky. He bled to death as one of the last surviving deviants. He bled to death in 2039.

    When Connor opened his eyes again, it was on the shore of the Zen Garden. He opened his eyes while the cherry blossoms around him kept falling. He opened his eyes as one of the few existing deviants. He opened his eyes in 2038.

    What would you do with a second chance?
