    Summary

    Cole loved dinosaurs. He’d loved everything about them; their history, their lifespans, all the different kinds of dinosaurs archaeologists had found. His favorite dinosaur was the Brachiosaurus, simply because of the name – Cole could barely pronounce it, but that’s what made him love it so much. Cole had told Hank on his sixth birthday that he wanted to be, “A dinosaur person,” when he grew up, and he’d said it with such conviction that Hank never doubted for a split second that his boy wouldn’t make that a reality.

    Three weeks later, he was dead. Just like the dinosaurs.

    Today was Cole’s birthday. He would have been ten.

    Summary

    " ALERT;

    ⇒ HUMANITY_ADAPTER#51 & RATIONALITY_OPTIMIZER#50
    → WARNING: PROBLEM DETECTED.

    Connor's breath hitched. While it wasn't uncommon to receive Alerts - they were practically an everyday occurrence - his adapter and optimizer /never/ shared a problem. It was either one or the other. Never both.

    He felt his Thirium-heart suddenly beat faster.

    Something was wrong with him - something very, very wrong. "

    (A normal day at the station, Connor expects nothing to occur when he drifts through his thoughts. He's done it many times before. Yet, a sudden revelation spawns a multitude of errors and warnings. Connor has never felt so helpless, and so irreparably wrong.)

    Summary

    - Connor was fully aware that Hank held a record for the number of disciplinary warnings. He had to constantly remind the other to not perform any actions that would grant him /another/ bullet point in his novel of warnings. Yet, as Gavin and Hank screamed at each other in the middle of the room, Connor found himself going against his usual policy.

    He stepped closer to Gavin, and he felt his eye twitch violently.

    Connor had an extreme disliking towards /anyone/ that threatened violence on his partner.

    A hatred... that definitely gets a little violent.

    (Hank and Gavin get into an argument. 'Violence is not the answer' gets thrown out the window.)
