This is probably way too big to properly see, so I recommend, nay, insist, you click the image to see the whole thing in all of it’s glory. because I couldn’t help myself, daggummit. Hahaha… xD
But if this breaks the rules I understand, got the “small” version as a backup to be safe. ^^;; Really I couldn’t help myself… I had to go all out. Such a wonderful concept, had to make it feel like a book you’d see inna store~! Kept the colors simple to fit with the art style. QR Code actually leads to Descartez’s Tumblr. because I am a nutjob. I hope you like it~!

HOLY CRAP GUYS I LOVE IT. Never would’ve thought of making Charles green, but it totally works. Great job!
Decided to go with a noir story with a courtroom feel:
Autos are considered second class citizens all over the world, providing cheap labor and an easy scapegoat when things go wrong. In London, when a local retired professor is thrown off of his balcony, many try to blame “Charles”, a second-hand library Auto which the professor owned. Charles, as well as a well-meaning idealistic lawyer fight the corrupt prosecution who hope to cover up the deed as an “industrial accident” caused by a malfunctioning Auto. Convinced of his personhood, his innocence, and his ability to prove both, Charles becomes the center of one of the most important trials in all of England, if not the world: Whether an intelligent, articulate, and created thing can be a person, or just a machine playing at life.
I’d read that.
I’m writing it as we speak.
