Seven-year-old Victor hadn't been able to figure out how to get music onto an iPod from a computer that didn't have iTunes, but teenage Victor faced no such problems. He borrowed Alec's iPod again and spent the morning putting songs on it -- a mix of classical, electronica, world music and rap that represented the best of his collection plus a few things he was pretty sure Alec would dig.

He was in a good mood as he worked, if a bit of a wistful one. Being seven for a weekend had been a seriously cool experience. Plus, now he had some real memories of childhood to mix in with the fake ones Ultron had implanted, which in his opinion was a change for the good.

He frowned a little at his torrent -- the complete works of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan should download a little faster, in his opinions -- and clicked open another browser window. He'd read up on AI virus prevention while he waited.

"You grew up," Olive noted -- seventeen year-old Olive, it should be noted -- from where she was peeking in the doorway.

"On the plus side, I got to build a fort and live on cereal for most of the weekend," Olive noted thoughtfully, stepping in to lean against the wall. "On the downside, tiny me was a lot nicer and more forgiving than I am now, and I'm pretty sure I hugged Topher, so. Hit or miss. But you seemed like you had fun. Seven year-old Victor was a blast."

"Yeah, it was weird being like, little, and -- wait." Olive eyed him, frowning a little. "How do you mean you missed out on having a childhood?"

...yeah. She'd figured at some point the android thing might come up again in such a way that she couldn't just act like it was fine without dealing with it, and apparently right now was "some point."

Olive was going to try and keep her face from showing how much that little bit of information kind of...messed with her head, but it was an uphill battle, in light of how much she liked him and thus how hard it was to lie.

"You're four?"

And she'd worried about the jailbait aspect when she turned eighteen to his seventeen next month. Ha ha. Ha.

"Um." Okay, there was a right answer here, and the right answer was obviously, 'Of course not, I like you no matter when you were made,' but even saying that sounded weird to Olive, so she was sort of waffling on what the correct response was here.

"No, she hedged, after a moment, "no, it's not like...dealbreaker weird, or anything." There. That much, she was confident in. "It's just...sorry. Caught me off-guard."

It was really weird. More than the age thing, it was a reminder that he wasn't entirely human, and she wasn't entirely sure how to deal with that.

She did as gestured, shuffling over and perching on the edge of his bed. "I bet," she offered, not without sympathy. "I'm trying to get it, I promise. I just -- hearing stuff like that totally reminds me that...you know, someone made you and you weren't born?" She winced, and added, "And that sounds awful, like I'm like...judging you or something? And it's not that, I just like...forget, most of the time. We don't even have androids where I'm from. Except in sci fi. Or probably at Google headquarters."

Olive winced. "See, I don't want to make you feel weird, and now I feel bad 'cause you were so cool about my pretending-to-be-an-uberslut thing." She shook her head, sighing. "And I was just planning on coming in here and being cute about telling you I was gonna bite you in Spanish and then I got all -- distracted. Um. Is it okay if sometimes I need a minute? I mean, I barely have dated...non-robotic boys. So my learning handicap here's already pretty bad."

Alec had woken up early to go to the gym, shock of shocks, and by the time he got back around mid-afternoon, he was very relieved to find a normal-sized Victor in place of the tiny one who'd been around yesterday. "Good to see you're back," he said, offering him a small smile.

"Oh, thanks," Alec said, surprised. He'd been prepared to let the iPod sit and collect dust for awhile before eventually fighting with it again, so that was a nice thing to hear. "You weren't that bad, though. Could've been a lot worse."

"Luckily he stayed the same," Alec replied. Which he was grateful for, for the most part -- though he had to admit it would've been a special kind of fascinating to see firsthand what Jace had been like before they'd met. "I didn't know the island even could leave people out during these weekends. It's good to know."

nottrivial: (conv: learning from you)
From: [personal profile] nottrivial
"Uh." Well. "Not really? I don't usually listen to music unless it's on in a store or something."

Because he had a life, really.

"Maybe the subdued kind?"

nottrivial: (conv: i think about what i say)
From: [personal profile] nottrivial
"I think I just like being able to hear if anything's going on," Alec volunteered, swinging his arms awkwardly. This was a little more sharing than he generally did. "Force of habit."

nottrivial: (?: you thinking what i'm thinking?)

"Smart," said he who had no business judging Victor's safety choices but was going to do so anyway. "Sorry. That sounded a little paranoid. I'd blame Fandom, but..." It totally wasn't Fandom's fault.
