    Summary

    Fresh from one of the top culinary schools in the country, Rhys lands an internship at The Diamond Pony, the heralded restaurant of both infamous and legendary chef 'Handsome' Jack Wolfbaine. But as his first day turns out less than stellar, Rhys isn't sure the cooking world is all it's cracked up to be, and starts to doubt his career choice or if he was ever built to handle it. Plus, turns out the Pony is now a washed up novelty from yesteryear with barely the ability to fill its dining room, its staff full of miscreants and over-inflated egos. When the reasons why become evident, Rhys bucks up and decides to stay on, making it his duty not only to pull the restaurant back into the spotlight, but to also impress the non-impressible Chef Jack.

    Summary

    Rhys is a long-term patient in the Helios St Angel psychiatric hospital. He's went through some hard times that led to some bad life choices, leaving him crippled and considered a danger to himself. He is content with his life, though. In the asylum, he is safe.

    Rhys' life turns upside down when he gets a new roommate. The notorious CEO of Hyperion, Handsome Jack, was admitted by accident, and his (doubtful) sanity becomes the push the young patient needed. With Jack, he is going to leave the safe walls of the asylum and face real life. And this time, he is determined to win.

    But this kind of illnesses doesn't heal on command, and Rhys has a long way full of medication, therapy, love and talking to his friends ahead if he wants to finally beat his demon. He is not alone, though. This time, he just has to make it.

    **** Tags will be added when they appear in the story. Be aware that the Explicit rating is there for a reason, and as always, this story will get a little dark (hence the Violence warning). But just a little. Otherwise, it is a pink cotton candy tagged Slow Burn. ****

    Summary

    There are three facts that rule Rhys' life.

    1) He is an Omega.
    2) He is a Siren.
    But most importantly,
    3) He is soulmate to Handsome Jack.

    Having made it as far as he had on Helios, Rhys made the choice to stay instead of running like any sane person would when learning of factoid number three. Because of that choice made over two years ago, Rhys has no one but himself to blame for the shitshow his world is slowly becoming. He met Jack and Rhys always knew that as soon as he met the CEO of Hyperion, his life would begin a steep and very quick downhill slide. He never knew exactly how bad it could get and how...pernicious an effect a literal run-in with Jack could turn out to be

    Summary

    In the end both Jack and the scientists had to compromise. Jack didn’t want to lose memories again, which meant they couldn’t just use the brain scans Nakayama had made. So, they scanned Rhys’s brain while Jack took his body over, and cadged that together with the scans Nakayama had used to produce the AI to begin with.

    Creating Jack’s body was every bit as difficult, because the fast travel stations and New-U stations auto-deleted their information every few hours to keep from filling up their memory, and the Vault Hunters had smashed the one nearest to the Vault anyway to keep Jack from using it. It seemed like they might hit a dead-end.

    Finally, Jack himself discovered scans of his whole body among Nakayama’s other Hyperion files. He wasn’t happy finding them, because the implications of why they were there were unsavory. But at least it meant the scientists had something to work with.

    Using those, programmed with Jack’s genetic code and the scans of Rhys and Jack’s combined brains, the science team digistructed a new body, removed the AI from Rhys, and hoped.

    It worked.

    Or at least, it seemed to.
