All I had done was watch a video recording. But it felt as though I had been there, Mrs. Investigator. And for a moment, I almost forgot that Old *Mute and I were two separate people.

It wasn't anything like the way I'd imagined the coup.

This is the fifteenth chapter of a fanfiction adaptation of Christine Love's visual novel Analogue: A Hate Story. You do not need to have played the game to understand what is going on.

This chapter contains a first-person account of suicidal depression and of an aborted suicide attempt, written by someone who has survived it herself in real life.

If you are at risk yourself, or feel you'd be triggered by reading such things, please consider skipping over this chapter. If you want to see the non-triggering parts of this chapter, which contain a pivotal moment in *Mute's character development, click here. Content note: More of *Mute's homophobia.

Either way, you probably shouldn't actually try to prevent an attempt using the method described here.

*Mute walked with me, down a mirrored version of the corridors towards the tram station. She matched my slow, lumbering pace, taking small and (I guessed) ladylike steps. Holding the train of her long hanbok, as though she were actually trying to keep it from getting dusty.

Sometimes, the glass "window" I saw her through was melted, sparking, or cracked, and she disappeared at those times. But she always came back on the other side, and patiently waited whenever I stumbled. It almost looked like she was having to hold herself back, from reaching out to help me.

I'd come back to the Mugunghwa to save *Hyun-ae. But for the hour or so that it took to walk to the tram station in magnetic boots, *Mute was all I could think about.

Because I was crushing on her, so hard.

This is the twelfth chapter of a fanfiction adaptation of Christine Love's visual novel Analogue: A Hate Story. You do not need to have played the game to understand what is going on. This story is designed to be accessible to newcomers as transhumanist dystopian sci-fi, and many liberties were taken with the setting and dialogue, as well as with certain events.

Content note: Sexism, homophobia, and a gendered slur. So, like, basically, *Mute being *Mute. Also, a bit of strong language.

Just so you know, I don't usually kidnap people.

But there was no way that I was reactivating *Hyun-ae to ask her permission, while she had root access and could use it to destroy what was left of the Mugunghwa. Besides that, I couldn't copy files that were in use, like an active AI. So if I didn't want her to die, I had to transfer her to the White Princess while she was inactive, before her code degraded in eighteen hours or so.

Was it legal? Was it ethical? At the moment, I didn't care. I wasn't trying to argue in favour of private investigators making citizens' arrests, and I wasn't thinking about whether or not she'd stand trial if she lived. I was trying to take responsibility for my actions. To save *Hyun-ae's life, and make up for pretending and leading her on.

What I am ashamed of is not consulting with *Mute, before I deactivated her core so that I could re-power *Hyun-ae's.

" ... hello?"

I froze up. Of course I froze up. That's what I do, when I have to talk to people. Especially when they're AIs. They get impatient and give up on you, and the sooner you let them the better. That way the embarrassment doesn't last as long.

It didn't help that *Hyun-ae looked nothing like what I had expected.

I didn't notice at first, when the tram car started to slow down. But I did see the light in the distance, far down the track, and squinted at it as my HUD tinted darker.

My breath caught when Aria outlined what I was looking at. Another car was approaching fast, on the same track.

"Aria, hypothesis. *Mute went rogue, took over the ship somehow, and shut down the life support systems."

*Mute was the starship's security AI, according to our client. Dispatch Control had told me to try to make contact with her, and find out why the Mugunghwa had never made it to its destination. As long as the main computer still had power, she ought to still be alive. And since she would be the only one still left alive after this massacre, that made her the prime suspect.

It also made her the most dangerous thing on the ship.
