    Summary

    Will wakes from his dreamless sleep, sprawled comfortably over the expanse of the bed and furs. It is luxurious; he can wake as slow as he likes, come up from the quiet depths in the late-summer warmth.

    Today his scar itches, and Will turns over, scratching his short nails idly over it and feeling them catch on the raised skin until it eases its itching. This blissful accomplishment past, he becomes aware that the bed is empty except for him.

    When he opens his eyes, the sun is streaming in from the window over the bed, suggesting it is late enough that Hannibal is out making his rounds. He had taken to letting Will sleep in after his injury, and Will had discovered deep pleasure in the freedom and self possession of it.

     A year after the events in Lagbrotna, the peaceful routine that their town has just begun to settle into is shattered again, and this time things seem to be changing for the worse. More dire seems to be the lack of warning... In which minor magic is real, Hannibal struggles to attain his goal, and Will does his best to keep things on the right track.

    Summary

    It's four feet tall, heavy and bulky and in the way. It stands unopened, a relic that becomes at times a catch for his cups of coffee as he comes in the door to greet Winston. The dog is well past four now, yet still enthusiastic enough that Will needed empty hands when Winston welcomed him home.

    The box is nearly that old. He has considered turning it down on its side to form a table.

    Will isn't certain that would be reverent. He doesn't think about it.

    -

    In which Hannibal is (was) an Android, and Will a robotic technician. The tragedy in their past and his attempts to save Hannibal's first incarnation come back to haunt Will. Aleph, in this case, refers to a point in space that contains all other points, as related to the concept of Omega Point. A sequel to Omega Point, so it is helpful to read that fic first. It's possible to dive right into this one, however!

    Summary

    The android had come into Will’s possession as a donation, he had never been able to afford one on the money he made, and had only kept him because at the time keeping a regular eating schedule was far more difficult than Will would have admitted. He had gotten him for parts, when the woman had exchanged him for the Alexander model, but hadn’t dismantled him as he would have any other. Identical as all the droids were, Will had never found any one of them to be quite like another.

    With this particular machine, something had stayed his hand.

    Will is an engineer in a world where machines are the norm. He runs a black market part shop, designing his own chips and parts for the assistance robots that are common in the city. He is also the owner of one of the last remaining Hannibal models, no longer in production, which he tests all his new inventions and chips on. Including his latest development, the compassion chip.
