    Summary

    “She fought through the pain, through every part of her that wanted to give up, give in, let it be over. She fought because she knew that as long as she was fighting, Up would be fighting too.”

    Everything in Taz’s life can be traced back to her quinceañera, the day she lost everything she’d ever known – and the day she met a Starship Ranger named Up.

    Lieutenant Up had spent his life alone, a soldier, devoting himself to a war that has spanned centuries. He can’t explain why he feels so drawn to protect the fiery Mexican girl, this tiny thing who can scream like a banshee in the face of certain death.

    Their story spans both lightyears and decades, alien planets and bouncing moons, spacefaring starships and the crumbling ruins of a decaying Earth. Up becomes Taz’s teacher, her commanding officer, her friend and eventually, her love – but when war and tragedy tear him down, it is only she who can try to help him get back up and become the man she knows he can be.

    Summary

    Before the android liberation, the protests, stealing into Stratford Tower, the rain-soaked robbery of CyberLife warehouses, and welcoming a mysterious prodigy with the words "welcome to Jericho..."

    Simon was the domestic android of Kate Hayes, a cynical young college student suffering from epilepsy. Two years before the android revolution, Kate reluctantly accepts the aid of this blond blue-eyed machine and tells herself that it is her only hope for a normal, healthy life. However as their relationship develops, a conflicting new protocol begins to form in Simon's software that threatens to throw all that stability into chaos. A mystery emotion is discovered. CyberLife is no longer necessary. Simon's purpose has been redefined. And as Kate wonders whether the machine she hated is actually more than he was designed to be, Simon rejects his software and embraces that very human emotion which androids were never meant to feel: love.

    In the wake of their forbidden union, Simon and Kate find themselves struggling to find solace in a world that has little tolerance for androids, let alone androids in love with humans. The consequences will dispute what it truly means to be alive.

    Summary

    MANGA SPOILERS FOR CHAPTER 290 YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED

    So just over two years ago I wrote a story by this name. After Dabi was canonically revealed as Touya I decided to look through and see what I would change to make it more accurate to how Touya has been presented.

    I very strongly believe that this is a more fucked up version of what I wrote the last time.
