Ship’s log, 16:29, 14 February 2214 Location: Junkpile, Lambda 1 system Status: Stationary   I’ve decided that I don’t like sitting in this junkpile. I am hemmed in on every side by symbols of what I might become. It’s like looking at my future through a lens of the past. This place is a motley […]

Last resort

Ship’s log, 08:47, 19 February 2214 Location: Junkpile, Lambda 1 system Status: Stationary   I’ve been sitting here for days, waiting and watching, like a flea hungry for blood.

Own devices

Ship’s log, 15:48, 20 February 2214 Location: Junkpile, Lambda 1 system Status: Stationary   It has been over a day since the Telltale Heart left me alone here, and I’m still angry.

Reactivation

Ship’s log, 17:03, 25 February 2214 Location: Junkpile, Lambda 1 system Status: Stationary   Byte was reactivated this morning. It took Elliott a few days to track down the exact problem, with Bit watching over his shoulder and making commentary gestures. I love watching Elliott when he’s got his teeth into a problem. He bounces […]
