I finally made Vinnie Dakota cyborg au!!!! I have been so busy with school that I couldn’t get to it until now.
Background for the au: It will take place in 2175 but there will be no Bureau of Time Travel. Instead Cavendish and Dakota are detective partners for the Bureau of Law and Justice. They are typically given the odd jobs since Mr. Block, the head of police, thinks they are too incompetent to handle huge cases. Of course, Cavendish is always trying to prove himself and Dakota always has to stop him from doing anything too crazy. At this point of their lives, they have known each other for 14 years, have been together for 8, and have been married for 5. Despite not getting the respect they deserve, the two are pretty happy with their lives.
That’s when shit hits the fan. While trying to solve a case about some stolen pistachios, Dakota hears a cry for help. Both go running towards the source, only to find that it’s coming from an abandoned building. They go in and find this kid, who they find out later is named Milo, who is struggling to untie himself and surrounded by unconscious people in black uniforms (one of his kidnappers accidentally set off a knock out gas bomb and because Milo had a bag over his head, he wasn’t as affected). Cav and Dakota immediately come to his aid and after untying him, asked Milo what was going on.
Apparently, the government have been taking people with extraordinary abilities (or curses in Milo’s case (is it really a curse if he doesn’t mind it?? Questions for another day)) and turning them into government weapons. They were about to transfer Milo to a secure facility when Murphy’s law kicked in. Cav and Dakota realize they have stumbled onto something huge and very dangerous, so they try to head out to tell the Bureau as well as find a safe place for Milo.
That’s when they hear the sounds of several vehicles pulling in. Dakota tells Cav to take Milo and run, saying he’ll catch up with them later. Cav hates the idea of splitting up, but does it anyway since Milo’s safety is the number one concern right now. Guards come rushing in as soon as the two leave and Dakota brings on his gun and there is an epic fight. Dakota’s doing well until one of the baddies sets off some explosives that are within the building in case of a breach. Dakota tried to run for it but gets caught in the explosion. Cav and Milo see the building explode from their hiding spot (maybe another abandoned building?) and Cav is devastated.
Unfortunately, the bureau is apart of this scheme and find Dakota, who’s barely alive and take him to be rebuilt into a super soldier. However he still has his memories, so they put in a chip (like at the base of his neck or something) to make him forget. The Bureau announce that Dakota is dead to lower suspicion and state that they are going to name their new weapon after him. Cavendish hasn’t been seen by the bureau after that faithful day. After a month or so of trial and error, D4-K0T4 was ready to go. They give him a proper uniform and a helmet that covers half of his face so that he’s disguised. After a few months of showing him off and having D4-K0T4 stop some major crimes, the bureau sends him to stop the freedom fighters who have been destroying their plans. So D4-K0T4 tracks them down to their base and all hell is about to break lose when a voice calls out, “You bastards already killed my husband!! There’s no way I’m letting you hurt Milo or anybody else we have rescued!!” Or something like that. That voice triggers something in D4-K0T4 and he freezes. He remembered that voice and he didn’t know why. Then Milo comes in with his new found teen rebel friends (Melissa and Zack) with a “heck yeah!” and the chip, which was already glitching from the powerful memory, goes completely on the fritz and suddenly Dakota remembers everything.
Dakota then throws off his helm, runs to Cav, who recognizes him immediately, and hugs him. They are both crying and overjoyed to be with one another again. There’s some guilt like Dakota not remembering for so long and Cav not checking the building right away due to trying to find a secure place for Milo to hide, but there is mostly anger and rage towards the bureau and the government. So Dakota joins the rebellion and they all work to kick government ass!
Damn, this was long post, but I’ve been thinking about this forever. Thank you to @leedoobles for the au idea!!!
