    Summary

    "In neurospace, nobody can hear you scream."

    ---

    Chris is fresh out of Chicago's police academy with an implant in the back of his neck designed for linking up with AI. Hawker is a 15-foot, 6-ton decommissioned piece of military equipment brought stateside after the nuclear holocaust of the Siberian War. Nobody was expecting Hawker to do anything but beat the living daylights out of every recruit who tried for compatibility with him, what with losing his previous pilot and best friend to a horrific gang fight 4 months before - but Chris finds himself, somehow, approved for training with the HLX-9 Vanguard unit. But the two have dark pasts and things to prove, and everyone at Chicago's 42nd precinct contends with the nagging feeling that Officer Chris Celn will either wind up out the door one of these days, or worse: in a body bag.

    This is the story of a twink pilot and his giant, metal, Kevlar Daddy and how they save the world, one post-WW3 Chicago at a time.

    Summary

    It was meant to be nothing but a means to an end; just a simple plan to catch his attention and gain safe access to Vector. Celes convinced herself of that. Though when Setzer continues to fixate upon her off stage, she can’t help but recall the fleeting, yet distinct taste he indulged her with upon her capture. Maybe it’s another game of his. Maybe this time he’ll win. Maybe she’ll even like it.

    Summary

    Rey was twelve years old in a grown-up velvet dress when her cousin Ben placed his hand on her waist in the yearly family picture. The gesture was innocent, but she’s been in love with him ever since. Six years later, when the world is suddenly boiled down to only the two of them, not even the vast emptiness of Alderaan House will give them enough places to hide from what they both want.
