3 Works in Supportive Connor (Detroit: Become Human)
One of the major figureheads of the revolution and finally a deviant, Connor now has to learn how to handle free will. The AI that both guided and punished him is gone, but at a price, and he struggles with his newfound freedom when guilt and fear are the crumbling foundations of his new life.
They say they want him there with them, but Connor can't understand why. He's afraid of himself and what he's capable of, afraid that maybe these feelings don't have their place within him.
But despite all the doubts he may have, Connor finds that he desperately wants to live : because whenever he feels himself slipping and falling, they're here to catch him.

“But…But why?” asked Hank, keeping his voice soft, not trusting himself to speak any louder, “What do you see in my fat depressed ass?”
Connor brightened, his LED finally going blue, “Shall I list my reasons?”
Hank has a feeling he was sticking his foot in his mouth, but… “Go for it.”
Connor nodded, and cleared his throat—a completely unnecessary gesture that Connor had decided to add for the full effect, the little shit—before starting.
Hank's depression and anxiety get the better of him, and combine that with his low self-esteem, he has to ask Connor why on Earth he decided to stay with him. Connor is more than happy to oblige.
Connor just moved in with Hank, and is trying to navigate the wild world of "Emotions." Within the first day, inadvertently, Hank puts the android on the path to trying to understand humor first with the power of old internet memes, vines, YouTubers, and all that jazz.
It's only a matter of time before other Millennials, and some Centennials, aid in this truly glorious goal.
Will now be a series of one-shots in which the chosen materials are going to be based around whatever form of internet humor happens to be tickling my fancy that particular day. Prepare to be unimpressed, to roll your eyes, and also watch these two nerds fall in love. Slowly.
