But love and good intent may not be enough to protect their little enclave. A new child may just tip the scales and place Icarus and his Master at risk.

A Thought Provoking Short Story
What do you get when you combine the Icarus and Pygmalion myths, steampunk, stem-cell science and the general complexities of emotion? - A unique, well-written short story that makes you think about the meaning of life and humanity, presented through the lens of an unconventional relationship.
Be warned: this story is not full of warm and fuzzies nor angst as it is normally presented. The relationship between the main characters is complex and made more so by their mutual inability to articulate their feelings and the precarious nature of the life they lead.
