    Summary

    Hank spots a young man with some rather abnormal behavior one night while on break.

    He says his name is Connor, and that he's fine despite being completely underdressed for the cold, winter weather and dancing along the streets like he was coming off ecstasy.

    It isn't until a few hours later when he spots Connor dangling himself over the edge of a bridge amidst the snow storm does he realize that Connor's behavior was a cause for concern....

    And it isn't until he brings him home that he realizes Connor's mind is a complex and darkened labyrinth of what being alive means. Maybe Connor's no angel, but Hank can't help but feel the young musician fell into his life for a reason.

    Summary

    “For hundreds of years, people came here to extract silver,” the older man mutters from behind the bar, rubbing a dirty rag inside a dirtier glass. The few patrons that frequent this place don’t come here for its health rating.

    “Why’d they stop?” Connor asks, picking his head up from the counter. The world sways a little, but he isn’t so drunk he can’t carry on casual conversation.

    The man gives him a once over and nods his head toward the window, “The silver ran dry. Developers came. Built houses tall enough to touch the sky. Then the apartments came. Then the slums. Families packed like sardines on top of other families. A stinking city raped of her worth.”

    Connor winces, wishing he hadn’t asked. He slaps a $20 onto the bar and pulls himself to his feet. His ankles seem at war with his toes and walking is more of a challenge than usual. He doesn’t want to be here anymore.

    __

    Connor set out to save a dying city. Ideals only go so far when corruption lies in the beating hearts of men.

Except there's no way an android can feel, right? There's no way Connor is his soulmate…right?

    Summary

    Dan has a tendency of fading away when things become too much. Phil has a tendency of giving his all from the getgo. Dan reads into everything. Phil can't see between the lines. Dan falls fast but finds it hard to trust. Phil trusts fast but doesn't know how to fall.

    They are polar opposites yet somehow all the pieces slot in so perfectly together.
