Night on Fic Mountain gift for me: "Life Hack", Almost Human!

The Night on Fic Mountain collection for this year has gone live, and here's what I got!

Life Hack (8206 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Almost Human
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Dorian/John Kennex
Characters: Rudy Lom, Original Characters
Additional Tags: Angst, Artificial Intelligence, Hallucinations, Robot/Human Relationships, Trust Issues, Hurt/Comfort, s1e11 "Disrupt"

When Dorian begins to malfunction, John relents on letting him come home, in order to keep an eye on him and hide it from the Department.

Om nom nom, nice sizeable story with juicy worldbuilding. This picks up on the show's hanging mystery of the human memory fragments uncovered in the depths of Dorian's mind, and uses it to explore Dorian and his worries about his future and his place in the world. Sigh! It's such a shame we lost that show so soon, but I think fans really do it a good turn.
