    Summary

    Sometimes you're a powerful AI, and you fall in love with someone but they don't love you back because they're focused on saving the entire galaxy from destruction, which is fine and noble and all, but you've still gotta fight for their affections with the other powerful AI that's already kind of in a committed relationship with them even if they don't realize it, and neither of you are going to tell them what's going on because they've got quite enough on their plate as it is with the whole Red Legion thing.

    But, like, it would be nice if they would pay at least a little attention.

    Summary

    "First of all, love is a joint experience between two persons - but the fact that it is a joint experience does not mean that it is a similar experience to the two people involved. There are the lover and the beloved, but these two come from different countries. Often the beloved is only a stimulus for all the stored-up love which had lain quiet within the lover for a long time hitherto. And somehow every lover knows this. He feels in his soul that his love is a solitary thing. He comes to know a new, strange loneliness and it is this knowledge which makes him suffer. So there is only one thing for the lover to do. He must house his love within himself as best he can; he must create for himself a whole new inward world - a world intense and strange, complete in himself." -Carson McCullers

    Or, In Which A Ghost Deals with the Sudden and Frightful Mortality of His Most Dearly Beloved Guardian.

    Between shady government agencies and the doomsday preppers from hell, life just got a heck of a lot more interesting.

    Summary

    When the Traveler gave me its Light, I was given armor, a gun, and a voice who told me where to point and shoot.

    The life of a Guardian is not chosen. We are bodies resurrected from dust, with minds of children told of a darkness that will consume them. We are drafted soldiers, fighting for the cause because we are being hunted and killed like prey, because we have nothing and know nothing.

    When you take away the armor, the gun and the voice, we, too, are nothing.
