Dear X...

The following is art and story by Sydney on Tumblr.  Link to original post at the bottom.



Dear x,

Dad let you come outside with me and Roll today. We couldnít wander very far, but you really enjoyed seeing the outside world after being confined in the walls of the lab for so long. I remember how much your face lit up when the sunshine hit you for the first time. Roll found lots of flowers and you and her picked some. She gathered your favourite ones and put them in a clay pot in your room so you can see them even when youíre inside your capsule. We sat outside for a long time. You asked why the sun continuously got lower and lower, and once I explained the sunset you refused to go inside until you could experience it for yourself. But it was okay, me and Roll loved being there with you for the last time. Eventually we had to go back inside. We knew what was coming. I miss you so much alreadyÖI wish we had more time together. Dad had to seal you in the capsule after we came back inside. You kept cryingÖIt all happened so fast. Dad programmed me with the ability to feel, and every emotion overwhelmed me all at once. I know he made a extremely significant upgrades to your ability to think and feel too, completely outmatching my own. I canít even fathom what it was like for youÖI hope that once your testing is complete, we can see the sunrise too.

Dear x,

Blues came to visit us today. He doesnít come by much with his malfunctioning core and all. He still refuses to get help, I feel so far away from him. I think Iím making progress though, but heís really hard to read. Wilyís plan for world dominations slowly get stupider and less severe the older he gets. Bass mentioned that heís building a super robot like you. Iím very scaredÖeven Bass was worried for what he could do. I hope that he doesnít hurt you. Bass also told me that he could have free will on the same degree as you, so maybe he would rather be your friend than follow the path set for him by Wily? Iím worried. Apparently he isnít done yet. I just hope that if he is bad, that he doesnít outmatch you.

Speaking of Bass, he doesnít really follow Wily anymore. He just kindaÖdoes whatever he wants. He still constantly wants to battle me to prove heís stronger though. I still win every time, but its become more of a aggressive competition than a matter of life or death. Iím really happy about that. Itís been about a year since you were sealed. 29 more to goÖsee you soon.

Dear x,

Today is mine and Rollís birthday. Dad said we were turned on for the first time 16 years ago. Blues came too. He also told us that he started developing you 11 years ago. Heís getting really oldÖme and Roll are afraid of what will happen when he passes on. Bluesís core wonít last much longer, and dad gets sicker every day. Everything is falling apart. At least Iíll have Roll. Bass too, I guess.

I donít know whatís going to happen to us. Iím afraid that weíll have to be scrapped or something. The government has very harsh and strict rules against robots, and they canít live forever. Do we have a set date to die? I really want to see you againÖ

Dear x,

Dad canít do much lately. Heís really out of it. Me and Roll have been taking care of him. Wily hasnít done anything in a few years, so we havenít had much to do. Bass stops by sometimes to fight me. At first we did, but now he just stops by to see how weíre doing. Blues comes by too. I like it when weíre all together. Bass told me that Wily stays up all night working on his prized robot. Seems like heís putting all of his focus onto him and has given up on taking over the world for now. Heís around the same age as dad, so he wonít last much longer.

Dear x,

Bluesís core is finally being replaced today! Iíve convinced him to let me and Roll fix him. Iím so happyÖI was very worried for what would happen in the future. I canít remember whether you met him or not. I think you did, but if you didnít, I know youíll like him. Itís been about 4 years since youíve been sealed. 26 more to go.

Dear x,

Dad died today. He really wanted to live long enough to see you. We all knew it would never happen. I wish I wasnít programmed with emotions.

Dear x,

It has been really quiet since Dad passed. Itís a little bit better now. Roll has been very depressed. Iíve been helping her keep the house tidy. Itís been fine, but going into your room isÖemotional. Roll hates going in there. She tries avoiding your capsule. But she always just sits there for a long time. Itís so lonely. If me and Roll get separated, I donít know what I would do.

Dear x,

Itís been so longÖBass and Blues come by to keep me and Roll company. Wily passed on a long time ago. He sealed that robot away to emerge some time later in the future. I miss you so much. I donít know how much longer I can live. Without dad here, I canít be repaired. Blues taught me how to self-repair myself, but Iím not sure how much longer it will last. Me and Roll will break down eventually. I hope we can last long enough to see you again. Iíve been counting down the days until I can see you once more. 7,000 more daysÖ20 years is a long time.
