Even More Robot Angst [Preview Post]Life is not a matter of holding good cards, but of playing a poor hand well.

Sweet Mother of Venus, the things that went on in this robot’s head at times… possibly not even Tardis would understand him if she could only hear him right now.
Working hours were long gone, but the former ranger wouldn’t go home just now… maybe he’d even take a little trip to get a bit lubricated after this, but for now he just remained sitting at an empty table, the broom next to him indicating that he technically still had work to do, but just for this morning, XR had decided to take a prolonged break.
For a long while now, he’d done nothing but just to sit at this table and glance at a bunch of cards he’d laid out in front of him as though there was some kind of structure behind it and with th
53. Keeping a Secret [XR]He comes at night… he always comes at night when everyone is fast asleep…
He doesn’t come every night though and he is grateful for that.
He only comes when he wants something from him.
He is not happy with that.
Though he supposed it could be worse. He’d been there.
He charges once a week. He doesn't need to more than that, but when he charges he absolutely needs to.
Maybe he should just charge more frequently?
About once every month his charger fails however...
And then he comes around... and he brings him energy.
Large packs of energy that he needs to take in differently because they are batteries and he cannot simply plug in on batteries.
He hates him.
But at the same time he gives himself away with how he runs his tongue over his metallic lips and that little spark that emitted when he scrapes past one of them.
He keeps them hidden in the public, but it's getting harder now each time to keep them in. When he gets a
Family Matters [Preview Post: Bonkers]Well as it happened to be today, it was one of Bonkers’s shifts. He wasn’t going to stay around for long today given that it was Saturday, but there was the occasional thing that still needed to be done before he could return home. Maybe He’d just take some of those with…
Even as he still contemplated this, carrying around a stack of paper in his little arms the toon turned the corner to pass the visitor who’d just come around with a casual: “Hi”
Until he did a double take, carelessly dropped the papers on a nearby desk and began to stalk around the other head tilted and observing almost like a well… cat. His hand raised now, reaching out to greet but then pulling back as though he was having second thoughts about it and instead his finger now pointed at the other almost as if to touch him, but never quite doing so before he tried to memorize the shape, the color… moving his hands along as though he compa
Hath No FearGiving yourself completely up to fear is kinda like falling in love: You can't pin point exactly when it started and by the time you realize that you are surrounded by that sensation it's already game over. Just like the image of the person you are in love with starts creeping out from every unexpected corner, fear never leaves your side when you give it a welcome stay. After a restless sleep, it starts beating anxiously in your heart the moment you wake up in the morning and commands all your thoughts and actions throughout the day. It is nothing short of a prison, except you are the only inmate and the warden never takes a break. Ever.
I do not exactly remember when I let fear occupy my being but I remember the exact moment when I realized I was ruled by it. It was late in the afternoon, everybody was out there 'getting busy living' and I had locked myself inside my bed half awake, not particularly finding any valid reason to get out of it. Then I was awakened from a nightmare by my
