Synth: Cyborg Katniss, Scientist Peeta

KTNS-12 was born in a gestation chamber, created by the brilliant scientist Beetee Lateer and his assistant Peeta.

And this fiction is so beautiful:

Beetee straightens, and I can hear his back pop from all the way across the room. “He used to insist on sleeping beside the gestation chamber to keep an eye on your vitals during the night. He was irrationally worried that something would go wrong and no one would be there to stop it. Of course, the alarms would have brought us all in within seconds, but I never could convince him of that . . . ” He trails off, going silent for so long I think he’s done speaking, but then he says, “FXFC and LVNA-9 both died within six in the evening and six in the morning. He blamed himself for not being there when it happened, I think, so he wouldn’t take any chances the third time around.”

Self’s only question is: Cyborgs are bred to go into battle, is there any point in having them all be female?

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
