A long, long time ago, in a galaxy not so far away but kind of hidden and squeezed in between two larger galaxies, a star was born.
Actually, a lot of stars were born. And a lot of them "supernova-ed", too. It's a frickin' galaxy, what do you expect? But this story isn't even about a star; it's about a robot. The coolest robot ever, in fact.
A bona fide boon of robot royalty: M.A.T.T.
So how did M.A.T.T. enter into this world?
Was he born
the way normal human beings are?
Was he a result of mitosis?
Did he rise from sea foam
like a Greek goddess of love?
Close, but no.
It's not so hard to figure out. He's a

I- The newborn wolf cub: The first emotion reflected in his tired eyes is that of mystery; a
curious devotion to the enigma of the moonbeams that cut through the trees, reflecting in
his inexperienced gaze. He calls out to the blinding light, beckons for its shadowed silence,
and eventually finds comfort in the embrace of mother's love. In that moment, he hears no
cruel sound his purity can't contest. He shuts
out the light as he slowly drifts away to rest. // Perfection was a value whose worth /
//was queried due to Perfection's birth./

His first book, Memories had been an overwhelming success. The critics had called it a breath of fresh air and a minor revolution in literary genius

I had been thinking about the troubling philosophical issue regarding the hypothetical teleportation device that uses quantum entanglement to instantaneously transfer data, then uses that data to exactly replicate the individual in the new place and simultaneously destroy the original. The new copy is like a twin with all the same memories of the original, right up to the event of the teleportation, creating a perfect illusion of transportation to everyone, including the replicant, who would have first person memory of the lifetime of the original and therefore believe himself to be the original. The only party for whom this fax machine from hell fails is the original, who is stifled by nonexistence.
So how can one be certain of this tragic flaw without experiencing it fi

For a moment he wondered where he was, then he recognised the items of furniture around him, that made it look like a celebrity's room. He also recognised the familiar feeling of something present under his arm. Glancing down, he saw Sonia, the pink hedgehog, fast asleep.Sonia and Shadow's story 28 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
"She's out for the count." Shadow muttered to himself, unhooking his arm from around Sonia's shoulder and getting up from the sofa. His arm was numb, and he shook it impatiently to get the feeling back. For a short moment he gazed back at Sonia, so peacefully asleep on the sofa, and he thought for the hundredth time how pretty she was, how gentle and strong and full of kindness. She was beautiful, and she loved him. That was a feeling he hadn't felt for ages, that someone cared for him. Shadow turned towards the window, sunlight dancing on his black quills. Then he heard a soft sigh from behind him. Turning

I can pretend that Im young and innocent
And that the horrors far away.
Here the endless tears wont drown me
Here the endless rage wont shroud me
