    Summary

    When Hank is called to the murder scene of local red ice dealer Todd Williams, he finds an abused android named Connor locked in a back room closet. Disfigured, damaged, and mute from physical and sexual abuse by its former owner, Hank knows the android will be deactivated and placed in storage as evidence, or worse, scrapped once the case is over.

    There's a void in Hank's life, a hole inside him that can only be filled by caring for someone. He figures it can't do any harm to take this android home and try to coax it out of its shell. Perhaps it will be able to tell him something about who murdered Todd and help him crack the case - or at least that's what Hank tells himself...

    Summary

    Javert/Valjean - hatesex that becomes a genuine relationship.

    From the prompt: Javert recognises Madeline as Valjean from the moment they meet, but they both know that any accusation would come down to his word against that of a respected businessman. So Javert goes about his duties and waits for Valjean to slip up, while Valjean goes about his life and waits for Javert to denounce him.

    Of course it would all be so much easier if they didn't have to see each other every day.

    Summary

    Hank is 53 years old. He's never had a soul mark, doesn't have a soul mate. And he's fine with that. He cheated the system once and it cost him everything he had. Never again.

    When August 2038 rolls around and the number '313 248 317 - 51' appears on his arm in perfect Cyberlife Sans font, exactly where a soul mark should be, Hank wants nothing to do with it.

    Summary

    Hank isn't trying to be in control, Connor realizes a moment later. He's trying to be gentle.

    And that feels even more foreign, because no one has ever worried about being careful with him. He was designed to look gentle when he needs to but not to truly be it, and so no one, not CyberLife or the Amanda AI or anyone after, has ever worried about taking care of him. Even at the squat with the other deviants, he's the lucky one with the unique face model, he's the one who can leave and work and at least pretend. The other androids love him - they're the only family any of them will ever have - but he's always the one taking care of them.

    "Hey," Hank says, running a hand down Connor's arm. "You okay?"

    "I'm okay," Connor whispers, and he thinks he means it.

    ~~

    Connor deviated before ever being assigned to the DPD. He fought with Jericho during the revolution, and they failed. He's trapped in Detroit with the remaining deviants, wandering and aimless and taking unnecessary risks to feel alive.

    So when he meets Lieutenant Anderson at a bar, a hook up seems like just the way to go, even if it does end up meaning so much more.
