…he said, “You know, in Preservation-controlled territory, bots are considered full citizens. A construct would fall under the same category.” He said this in the tone of giving me a hint.

Whatever. Bots who are "full citizens" still have to have a human or augmented human guardian appointed, usually their employer; I’d seen it on the news feeds. And on the entertainment feed, where the bots were all happy servants or were secretly in love with their guardians. If it showed the bots hanging out watching the entertainment feed all through the day cycle, with no one trying to make them talk about their feelings, I would have been a lot more interested.

The Murderbot Diaries I: All Systems Red, by Martha Wells

This is my precious Murderbot, and I love it to pieces, and everything about it is Relatable. It just wants to bingewatch trash tv all day, and why won’t all these humans stop trying to interact with it and improve its life and make it feel things? 

Please read this novella, because it’s everything you could ever want in a snarky first-person robot tale. The link takes you to the full first chapter.

Old school™ Lapidot aesthetic:

-Lapis was the goofy initiative one, Peridot was the stoic easily-flustered one

-Everyone thought Peridot was part robot and would malfunction when overwhelmed with gayness

-If you didn’t think Peridot was part robot, you read the limb enhancers as prosthetics due to Peri being a congenital amputee.

-Even though despite Peridot being shorter WITH limb enhancers if not the same size, Lapis was always drawn smaller

-Literally unlimited creativity with how scenarios and situations could go since we initially knew so little of the characters

There’s plenty more I’m forgetting and PLEASE ADD ON TO THIS LIST

Can we please make oldschool lapidot an au where everything’s the same but it lives on
