fahye: and watch him go
As Will Graham passes within a handsbreadth of Hannibal's face, Hannibal can smell something else there as well: something unfamiliar. The odour is glowing and ashy like a poker left too long in the fire.

"All yours, sir," says the manager. "I recommend a daily winding, but this model can almost make it to three days."

Will Graham's twitching eyes are intent on the iron key as it changes hands.

scifigrl47: Far Better Things Ahead
“Miss Smith, meet salvage items 223-B and C.”

Lucy slid through the door, transfixed. They were robots, of some sort, a single arm on a series of servos, a tall upthrust block of a platform and beneath that, wheels. They were identical in structure, and they were both black with an oily grime that coated every inch of their metal frames.

toft: The Pinocchio Fallacy
Adam is a sexbot on the lam with a developing personality. Grant and Tory dreamed of changing the world, but sold out to the man. Kari works in robot rights activism in her off-hours. Jamie specializes in making things do what they weren't supposed to.

Crazy but brilliant AU, and genuinely good scifi.

manic_intent: Machine Language
Snow had rambled halfway through the brief before he realized that John wasn't paying him any attention: as he trailed off, Kara's gaze jumped from Snow to John, then to the inoffensive, quiet-looking middle-aged man who had followed Snow into the briefing room only to sit in a corner without a word.

"Something on your mind, Agent?" Snow asked irritably.

"Sorry, Mark," John drawled. "It's just that I've never seen a cybrid before."

betty & emeraldwoman: Nerds of the Earth, take note!
In which SHIELD forcibly recruits Hardison to help deal with a rogue AI mutated from JARVIS.

I remember first reading this back in the day and thinking the MCU-side characterizations were a little dark, but it feels creepily prescient now.

emilyenrose: Out of the Dead Land
Someone is building machines that look and act like people. Meanwhile, the Winter Soldier tries to be Bucky Barnes.

I'm never going to get over this story. It was amazing on the kinkmeme, and even better after Em revised it, and it's 100% emotional agony and robots. What's not to love?

etben: you just can't differentiate
“Phryne, you cannot possibly tell me that you intend to—to seduce a police mechanical.”

Okay, Phryne absolutely *would* seduce a robot given the opportunity, but this story is not really about that. It's an utterly lovely, thoughtful close-to-canon AU, and it's remarkable how seamlessly the author merges the existence of sentient robots into the canon.

scifigrl47: In Which Tony Stark Builds Himself Some Friends
The one with the flying Roombas. I'm pretty sure everyone's read this by now, but hey, I'm still working through my bookmarks from 2012. This author has a real talent for mixing plotty action with humor and just the right amount of sincere emotion, and juggles the increasingly large ensemble with ease. Occasionally cracky and her Thor is frustratingly cartoonish, but a consistently enjoyable series. (side series Phil Coulson's Casefiles here:

laurakaye: Defrag
The original protocols had called for a wipe-and-restore after each mission, but Harold had never liked the idea; if you wanted drones you should use drones, if you wanted to build yourself artificial operatives you should permit them to learn and grow the same as the organic ones. All the constructed memories in the world couldn’t take the place of experiential learning.

Harold does routine maintenance on John. Faintly creepy but also lovely. (so basically like canon. *g*) (AO3:

copperbadge: Condition of Release (1/5)
Jack has studied the Cybermen for forty years, and he's damned if he'll let one take any of his people away from him without a fight. || Creepy Lisa-brainwashed-Ianto AU that runs parallel to S1 (which, naturally just makes it that much creepier). Awesome use of old school Who canon regarding Cybermen.
