    In which Naruto robs, and Sasuke vandalises ... in a manner of speaking.

  3. Summary

    Naruto may or may not be pissing a rainbow, Sakura may or may not be from the future, Sasuke may or may not be bad at acting (hint: he is), and somehow, Kakashi is always the butt of everything.

    Summary

    The mostly peaceful Android Rebellion of 2038 ended with tentative success, but now the androids must carve out a permanent place in a wary society. Markus, trying to hold on to that hard-won freedom, gets drawn into Hank and newly deviant Connor’s investigation into a string of complex thefts and murders. With far too many coincidences for comfort and old enemies resurfacing in the shadows, Markus has to figure out fast who he can trust. Letting North blow everything up is starting to sound like a better idea every day…

    --

    Mostly an excuse to write more Markus and Connor interactions, now featuring triple the angst, double the Tracis, allegedly naked confessions in a public restroom, and a furby.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Characterisation is spot on.
    That Epilogue, though. WHY. I'm gonna pretend it doesn't exist and that everything is well and happy and that Elijah isn't possibly scheming something I don't want to know about.

    Summary

    It is a truth universally acknowledged that robots are connoisseurs of arts, culture, and fine wines. Connor, who considered himself a strong fan of 1940s Merrie Melodies skits, had read a book on Michelangelo once, and was still shaky on what exactly a corkscrew was supposed to do, was very culturally refined in android terms. This was not out of lack of trying on the part of the androids, but out of a lack of common sense.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    yellow_caballero writes a very amusing Connor.
    North kneaded her eyebrows. “It’s Connor. He is, objectively, the least trustworthy android I’ve ever met. I love the guy, but I don’t think he ever stopped being a little evil.” She paused a beat. “That being said, if Connor was in his right mind he would have stopped to give a one liner. He didn’t. No way it’s really him.”

    Summary

    After both are driven to the brink of committing suicide during the final days of the revolution, Hank Anderson and his android partner Connor flee Detroit overnight. Taking refuge in Canada, they have to learn how to live with each other, help each other heal. Which isn't exactly as heartwarming as it sounds. Hank could fill a novel with his emotional baggage - alcoholism, depression, self-blame over the death of his only son and an inability to differentiate between him and his android partner. Connor is quick to catch up to him with his own share of problems- clueless about the concept of identity, free will and emotions, wanting nothing more than to stay a machine. After all, he's only deviated in order to stop his partner from killing himself, not because he'd wanted to be free.

    After a few weeks together, things seem to get better. Androids are close to gaining their rights in America. Hank and Connor are starting to form an actual familial bond. The Lieutenant is almost getting confident and hopeful after years of mindless cynicism. Then Connor starts slipping out of their home at night on a regular basis, believing Hank doesn't notice. He sure does. After all, he used to be the DPDs very best.

    Summary

    In the almost two years since Markus' peaceful demonstration at the android recycling center, Connor has officially joined the DPD, earned the rank of detective, and earned the respect of (most of) his peers. Even Gavin Reed needs a helping hand from his least favorite android on occasion, so it's not completely out of the blue when he requests Connor's presence at the site of an android trafficking bust being co-investigated by Richard Perkins and his Android Trafficking Task Force. What IS out of the blue is the attack on Connor's person by an unseen assailant that leaves him on the verge of shut down just as he locates a key witness. Witness dead and not far behind himself, the android detective is forced to transfer his consciousness into the first empty android shell he can get his hands on... a male YK500.
    Stuck in a strange body, Connor has to track down Hank, the one person in all the world he trusts to help him uncover who in the DPD or the ATTF has something to hide regarding the sudden rise in trafficked lobotomized androids in and around Detroit. Getting his old body back would be nice too.
