    Summary

    “...And maybe Vang0 still a little fangy, and maybe Dasha was still a little pale from shock, and maybe Burger was still a little shaken up over the whole thing, but his partners were safe and he could snag some bloodpacks from Hypo when he went over tomorrow to refill the medkit -- and hey, now Vang0 had no excuse to look so embarrassed when Burger tried to eat the neighbors on full moons, oh wow Burger was never gonna let them forget this -- and so really the whole situation was under control.”

    Summary

    “The metallic tang of blood hit Burger’s nose, and his hands were shifting from gently carding through Vang0’s hair to gripping tight as he pulled their head away before consciously processing what was going on, and Dasha was clutching at her neck and Vang0 was gasping in great huge gulps of air and Burger’s eyes were fixed on the two dripping fangs that had appeared in their mouth and the smear of blood across their lips”

    Summary

    Vang0 officially disappears on March 23rd, 2040. The exact time unknown, but whatever conspires that morning takes place before Burger wakes up.

    If he’s being honest with himself; he’s seen it coming for a little while now. Vang0 isn’t the routine type, he’s young and whip-smart and drinks so much Redbull that the stuff must pump through his veins. 

    Burger’s an old dog. Older than Vang0 by at least two years, he’s sure. He doesn’t have much, and god doesn’t that sound cliche, but he’s stupid and optimistic- and really. He must’ve known somewhere deep down that the kid wouldn’t stay.

    ...Or, the missing person fic where Vang0 (you guessed it-) goes missing, Burger vehemently pretends nothing is wrong until he doesn't, and Dasha needs a break, told in snippets over the span of a few months.

    Written for the PCPR Mini Big Bang 2020!

    Summary

    "the whole thing was putting them a little bit on edge so Vang0 did just have to check and make sure that Burger wasn’t, in fact, dying -- he was “fine, don’t worry ‘bout me it’s just that time of the month, ya know?” -- and Vang0 hadn’t actually realised that Burger was trans but cool, good for him"

    Summary

    “What’s going on with me right now is that I’ve found myself in a bougie caffeine establishment fever dream that just so happens to have the shittiest store playlist in the history of ever.” Vang0 says, bordering on manic as he looks up at the ancient speaker up in the corner of the shop. “Seriously, what is this terrible song?”

    “Hey, Soul Sister by Train.” Candella still, amazingly, does not look alarmed or worried.

    -

    Or the one where Vang0 is a barista at Gio's Beans Cafe...except he’s not.

    This isn’t his fucking job, this isn’t his fucking life, and it takes a quick look around the horrifyingly low tech coffee shop he’s in and the fact that he’s missing a USB port on his neck to be painfully aware that this isn’t his fucking universe. This is a 2010s over idealistic portrayal of adult mundanity that he and his friends are stuck in and Vang0 has to get them all out of this nightmare before he commits customer service acts of violence.

    Bring it on, Coffee Shop AU. Bring. It. On.

    Summary

    Vang0 woke up in a desecrated laboratory six months ago, with none of his memories. Burger Chainz works on a farm, rehabilitating injured Pokemon (and people. Well, one person.) Dapper Dasha used to be one of the most famous Pokemon Contest stars in the world, but two years ago she disappeared, and hasn't been seen since.

    Vang0 starts working as Burger's electrician, and it turns out their lives are more intertwined than they thought.

    Summary

    Dasha's agent rings at 2 am, and it's Vang0 going Through It™. So of course she brews a cup of coffee, picks up a can of Spunky Monkey and helps her frien- associate. They're not friends.

    (Loosely inspired by that one Knives Chau scene in Scott Pilgrim)

    Summary

    Vang0 Bang0 messed up, big time, he needs help to get off the radar for a while, and of course that his best friend Burger Chainz would help him, and a road trip seems to be the best way to make him drop from the face of the earth until things have quieted down. But the empty roads bring nostalgia and an unearths feelings both of them thought deeply buried. They say that road trips change you, why should that be different in the cyberpunk future?

    (Or: Vang0 doesn't remember his birthday. Or his age. Or his interests, his likes, his dislikes, the password to his CollegeBoard account. (Well, one of those is less important than the others.) That being said, Burger wants to throw him a birthday party. Dasha is interested, despite herself. A series of assumptions are made, some feelings are hurt, and some lessons are learned.)

    Summary

    "Burger loved Dasha, of course he did, he loved spending time with her and he thought she was beautiful and the idea that they might be dating -- might have been dating for a while -- sat warm and comfortable in his chest, but, except, it just was that, he hadn’t realized that how they interacted might be how two people that were dating behaved, he was just hanging out with his friend, he did stuff like this with Vang0 all the ti- -- now wait, wait a second, now hang on just a second --"

    Summary

    “And she had to stay calm, her friends needed her, she needed to be able to take care of this, whatever this was, so when she rounded the corner to see Vang0, bent over Burger’s still form with blood on their hands and tear tracks on their face, she didn’t scream or cry or throw something but just knelt by their side and took Burger’s hand in hers and started planning for how to make this right.”

    Summary

    "Burger seemed distracted lately, his actions just a bit sluggish and his words just a bit desperate and he seemed to have a constant cough and they didn’t know why, they couldn’t figure out how to help him; every time they asked if he was okay Burger just waved them off with a “nah, I love ya but there’s nothing you can do about it,” or something along those lines and Vang0 had never felt so useless in their entire life."

    Summary

    “As it turns out, it takes a while to recover from growing a fucking tree in your lungs, so even after the whole dramatic deathbed confession it turned out that hey, he still had a fucking tree growing in his chest and crawling up his throat and it wasn’t magically going away just because he finally got his message across”

    Summary

    Every action has its equal and opposite reaction.

    On a farm in Idaho, the Chainz family loses their farm to an agricorp. Burger learns to aggressively modernize, to code and to hack and to netrun and to change his name to Burg3r for the hell of it, because what else do you do? Join a Nomad gang, with no future? No way.

    After leaving her family in disgrace, Dasha breaks down on the side of the road, and finds that she can find agency in a new way with a new family, one she chooses as a Nomad. After all, family is really what you make of it, and she could use a break from the day-to-day life of constant scrutiny by the media and the harsh rules of her home.

    And in an empty warehouse, a man wakes up with no memory but the knowledge of everything and everyone at his fingertips. He finds himself moderator of a forum on which everyone knows a guy; it's not hard to blend in, to pick up the work of a Fixer, when you're a blank slate with nothing but a computer and an army of people at your disposal.

    Or: if Brian and Pat and Simone moved a seat to their left.

    Summary

    “You can’t imagine why Vang0 wanted you to come here, or why you have to be here specifically for them to tell you whatever it is that’s so important, but Vang0’s your friend, and you try to make a point of being there for your friends, so now you’re here in this creepy ass warehouse and the spot you’re supposed to go to is just two aisles over and you round the final corner and -- well, that’s a body.”

    Summary

    "It started small enough, Burger didn’t even notice. He and Vang0 were sitting in the back of the van, Vang0 was streaming sixnite and doing just as well as ever -- which is to say: not well at all but trying their best -- and made a stupid comment about a player’s outfit and Burger laughed so hard he choked."

    Summary

    The Night City Commuter Train is absolutely packed, but another one isn’t coming for too long, so Vang0’s just got to squeeze himself onto this one, he guesses.

    He kind of wishes the guy he's sharing a compartment with would stop talking to him, though. Vang0 doesn't really do talking to people right now. Especially not weird, intimidating dudes with metal jaws and too many questions.

    Summary

    “The cold is the first thing you register when you wake up -- it’s the kind of cold where you aren’t quite shivering yet, but your fingers are stiff and clumsy and your toes are just starting to go numb and you can taste the chill in the air. The second thing you register is confusion -- you can’t remember quite how you got here, or where here is, or, in fact, who you are. The third thing you register is the blood.”
