That's in the student handbook. We haven't seen what the employee handbook has to say on the matter. Probably says "Don't date robots."

This seems... Too easy.

Like, i don't think the shadow men are being completely on the level here.

Like, If I needed unlimited access to Kats research, what story would I come up with?

GC characters never lie about romantic love, that I can tell. They might withhold the truth, but they don't lie.

I don't think they're lying, but I dunno how this ends well for anyone. They think the Court isn't going to notice that all of a sudden her partner robot suddenly has a new bio-body?

Also, how awkward is the conversation going to be when Juilette has to ask about making the robot anatomically correct?

Kat's a teenager with a girlfriend. I'm pretty sure she knows what sex is.

I mean, if you think it's totally not-awkward or inappropriate to ask an underaged teen to build your boyfriend a better dong, then by all means.

Said teen is basically in the position of goddess/doctor at this point, and Kat's not the shy type. Nor do I think Sidell's going to insert panels about building robot dongs either (Jeph Jacques, as always, is an exception).

You guys are being weird. We've already seen a panel where Robot experienced the joy of just being able to touch Shadow's hand. This comic will be fine with exploring the wonders of tactile sensation without going straight to fleshy robo-cock.

Look, all you have to do to get a Donlan to do something stupid for/with you is go "oh my god we could get in so much trouble" and the rest just sort of falls into place.

In this case "the rest" is thousands of flesh-draped robots wandering the streets moaning MY CREATOOOOOOOOOR GAAAAAAAAAVE MEEEEE FLESSSSSH but that'll probably be freaky enough scene to keep those uppity forest animals in line, so it's all good.

If the Court wanted access to the research, they could just take it. They gave all the power here.

These two are pretty obviously on the level in this exchange. Evidence: pages 754 and 742.

I am very amused by the general concept that robots developing the ability to love is so pervasive that it's a systemic problem that must be dealt with through prophylactic training.

The chaotic consequences of robot love better turn out to be nice and dark.

Truly, the dangers of emergent AI is not that they want to kill all meatbags, but bone them instead.

I also love this bit of world building but hope for the exact opposite. I hope the consequences are Silly and Dumb and nobody wants to bother with adressing them.

It is known that robots' love of humans is sincere and innocent.

I could take that page, and easily make it the underlying basis for The Matrix or Skynet.

Nah, we are. I just like watch the machinations behind Annie and Kat's stories, which (IMO) have a significantly more ominous tone than the main characters' day-to-day.

...

Wait, has the court been mind swapping students with Forest Dwellers?

Because that's a heck of a thing to mention in the middle of a conversation about roboners.

Nah, she means how the conscience that Coyote took from the forest creatures and stuffed into the little totems is then transferred to a human(ish) body.
