    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

    The free androids of Detroit start building their brand-new future, but peace is only relative in the troubled times that follow a revolution. 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.

    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.

    Summary

    The cool Detroit winter breeze. The obnoxious light from the club’s sign. Loud music. Big brown eyes that take on all the light’s colors and make them their own. A soft smile, a breathy laugh. Hands tucked into the pockets of a long coat. Boots strolling down the sidewalk, crunching in the thin layer of snow. Three shots of vodka apiece. Soft hands with long, delicate fingers.

    These are the things that Markus can remember from that night. Healing, like incense. Strengthening, like sunlight.

    Markus could paint it, if he could just relearn how.

    Summary

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

    Meanwhile, Connor remains fearful of the return of the Amanda AI that nearly drove him to kill Markus; the repercussions of which continue to make him doubt his deviancy. To distract from his fears, he loses himself in the newest case sweeping the DPD: a disturbing pattern of suddenly homicidal androids.

    After Markus is targeted by a mysterious assailant, Conner finds himself unwillingly assigned as the head of the ambassador's security detail.

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

    As the investigation progresses, and new and old threats arise, deviant hunter and leader find their paths becoming as tangled as the wires inside of them. At the end of the day, their worst enemies may be closer than they think.

    Summary

    "North and Josh and Simon were trying to protect him from Connor, Markus was trying to protect Connor from them and CyberLife, and Connor was trying to protect him from everyone else."

    ---

    The Revolution is far from over, Markus knows. There are so many changes that will have to come; socially, politically, legally. What he didn't realize is that spending so much time with Connor would make some of these changes much more...personal.

    Connor is lost, searching for a new mission and Markus can help. But he's beginning to think that it might not be as straightforward as all that, now.

    (He might only have started feeling real emotions just last week, but all this is normal, right??)
