    Summary

    Isn’t there a saying about how doctors make the worst patients?

    Taako wonders if the same is true for detectives who become missing-person cases. Part of him bets if Angus were here right now, he’d be laughing at the incompetence of these so-called professionals.

     

    On a bright summer morning, the World’s Greatest Detective disappears without a trace.

    Summary

    "Sometimes, you’ve gotta fight your own battles, kid.”

    And fight he did while he lay on Hank’s sofa, swaddled in blankets and unable to move. Too hot, but much, much too cold. Motionless while the last of CyberLife’s programming tore through his systems and made his hands ache to complete one final mission.

    Damn did Hank wish he could be there to help the kid fight this one.

    Summary

    After the android uprising, Connor becomes a permanent fixture in the DPD. That’s fine. Gavin can accept that. The dipshit’s more human than he used to be, and a decent detective to boot. Gavin can deal with him being around.

    What Gavin cannot deal with is Connor’s replica; two inches taller, blue-eyed, and with a mouth that Gavin doesn’t know whether to punch or take between his teeth. The RK900 model has been assigned as his partner for the foreseeable future.

    -

    Now with a trashy timestamps series.

    Summary

    Connor, on serial number -54, was destroyed and discarded in the junkyard. His body is in pieces. Connor can't feel this physically, until he can.

    He doesn't know how he got here. Each trauma and each death has impacted his recall. All he knows is that his memory starts to go dark somewhere around the Ambassador Bridge.

    [Canon-adjacent. The revolution didn't succeed or fail. It's February 2039; the fight is ongoing, but Connor, and separately, Hank, have been left behind.]

    Summary

    There's a certain stillness to the aftermath. It's a quiet, mundane consistency, like the universe is giving them room to pick up the pieces, to try and establish a sense of normalcy.

    To figure out what normal means, now.
