    Summary

    As a last resort to save their engagement, Sonja decides to get a robot to do the chores for Even and her, so they can spend the little free time they have together. However, the plan backfires when Even starts to spend more time with "Adrian 2121" than with his fiancée, intrigued by the robot's beauty and innocence.

    *

    "A robot?" Even exclaims, stunned.
    "Even, it's perfect," Sonja urges him. "The time we used to spend cleaning up or doing paperwork, we can spend it together."
    "It doesn't feel right to use someone else to-"
    "Someone else?" She snorts. "It's not a person, Even, don't be absurd! It's a thing. It's a machine. Do you feel bad when you use your computer? Then it's the same thing. We are not taking advantage of it, that's its very purpose!"

    - AU inspired by Tarjei's short movie "On/Off".

    Summary

    There was a fourth-year who thought it would be cute to live in a musical. I don’t understand that train of thought. It’s been a hassle to be roped in the random synchronized dance just because you happen to be in the same corridor as someone who’s gone off. 

    What makes this extra embarrassing is that people are singing their emotions. I’d like to let that sink in - teenagers are forced to sing their desires and deepest feelings (as if we don’t have enough self-control issues).
