    Summary

    Connor was sure it would succeed in every mission given to it, regardless of what it would be: catching deviants, saving hostages, or integrating with humans. Being an obedient, unfeeling machine.
    Turns out it doesn't succeed in any.
    It is constantly failing everybody around it, everyone who has ever had any faith in it or hoped for its help. Connor just doesn't seem to escape being inferior. Broken.
    It just can't help being just itself. And Amanda deserves so much better than that.

    Meanwhile, Lieutenant Hank Anderson is dealing with the android partner he has been assigned against his will. The man has been trusted with a task of keeping an eye on the RK800 - a new prototype capable of advanced combat, eliminating difficult targets, stalking humans and androids alike like a predator. Should the android deviate, the consequences would be tragic. And the man is just beginning to notice the changes within Connor.
    But the RK800 is not the only one undergoing them.

    Summary

    “What little things I thought I kept for myself,” he said slowly, “what things I thought I had learned...I have no way of knowing what is real, and what is programmed. I am not myself. I am not even Connor. I am a copy of someone else’s habits. Connor doesn’t exist.”

    “Says who?”

    “I did,” Connor tried to lighten the mood but his tonal subroutine didn’t kick in, leaving his voice blank, “just now. I am a machine, Lieutenant. I am not capable of feelings, or pain, or innovation, or free will. I run on input and code, and that is it.”

    “Oh yeah?” Hank didn’t sound impressed, “Then why the hell are you petting my dog?”
    -------
    The existence of life inside a plastic shell was news to him, or at least it would have been if Connor hadn't already, on some level, known it to be true. The introduction of a sadistic creator, along with revolution and changes to the geo-political landscape of the earth on which he was built should have been enough to contend with. Adding Lieutenant Hank Anderson on top simply set the avalanche of Connor's admittedly short existence rolling without any guarantee as to the fall out.
