    Summary

    Dr. Liu,

    Got your final report yesterday on Project LV-426. I'm amazed. Great work all around. It's been forwarded to the Chair, our friends at the Pentagon, the Defense Appropriations Committee, and DARPA. The acid-resistant armor is something that should really catch their eye.

    We're expecting some big grant money from this.

    Burke

    Burke,

    Did you read even the executive summary of my report? There are some interesting biomaterials that we could work with, but I stressed, multiple times, that this creature is far too dangerous to even consider using in military research projects. It's aggressive, stupid, vicious, aggressive, impossible to train, and did I mention aggressive?

    . . .their limbs work on hydraulic principles and operate under pressure, which is why they splurt like a popped water balloon when they get hit in those Marine camera feeds we saw. A slight wound to a limb takes them right the hell out of commission, and now your troops have to deal with an insanely aggressive and stupid xenomorphic K-9 unit that oh by the way IS BLEEDING ACID.

    Summary

    Jonathan Sims has a secret, which really isn’t all that surprising. Everyone has secrets, everyone has troubled pasts, and everyone has things that they’d really rather hide.

    In no place does this come into play more often than in the Crew of the Starship Aurora, who happen to be Jon’s secret in the first place.

    or, an AU where a mishap with an eldritch entity leads the Mechanisms to being...somewhat entangled in the life of one Jonathan Sims.

     not abandoned! just taking a slight break, back by September at the latest

    Summary

    "Who the hell are you?" Jon could feel his hands shaking.
    The man laughed, taking a step forward and raising a hand to point at him.
    "I'm you, from the future!" he said, then swayed, eyes going unfocused, and collapsed to the floor in a dead faint.

    Summary

    The road to the Panopticon did not start in the cabin.

    No more than it had started in the Magnus Institute.

    It began pre-Gertrude Robinson and Adelard Dekker. Pre-Jonah Magnus. Pre-humanity, pre-Neanderthal, pre-primordial.

    It began not long after the opening of the Eye and the first stirrings of The End.

    It began with the Extinction. And will, naturally, end with the same.

    Summary

    Lyf had been having a very peaceful and fulfilling few decades, at least in terms of work fulfillment and being able to afford to bail out of the system at the very first moment anything happened.
    So of course that was when the Mechanisms appeared over the horizon.
