A/N: This is what happens when you listen to Vocaloid, watch "Person of Interest", remember the game play of "Detroit Become Human" (which fun fact: Otto's VA was in that game as one of the main characters) and find out that Ciro Neili and Greg Cipes have active instagrams and decide to revisit your love for the show, "Super Robot Monkey Team Hyper Force Go" and think of your favorite OTP of that show (besides Sprx77XNova) which for me, is ChiroxJinmay.

Also on that note I HIGHLY encourage if you're still a fan of the show to check out Ciro's Instagram page, superrobot74 because he posts really good pictures of his life's work including SRMTHFG! And who knows, maybe we can do a petition to revive the series somehow since a lot of classic shows seem to be coming back. There is also an Instagram fan group we made if you follow srmthfg_waroftheundead we have very creative and talented artist/ fanfiction authors including WingedWolf101 and itheblacksunking so yeah, thought that would be worth mentioning for all the fans who are still alive and out here!

Another Fun fact: I used to be known as sizzlinwriter on here, if you go waaay back in the SRMTHFG fanfiction pages, you'll see my story "Daddy, what did you do?" which I wrote when I was like 12 or so…(I'm 28 now) yeah, I got plans to revise that cringe yet funny piece of work…But until then, here's a story that I've been wanting to put out since I revisited my love for the series years later and still found that I was and probably forever will be a Chinmay shipper for life…

Seriously they're too underrated for me in this fandom compared to canon…the sweet innocent simplicity of their bond but impossible complications of their relationship because of their species is just grounds for a good dramatic "what if" read, so I'm gonna play with it and see where this goes since it's still a work in progress. So if you like it, feel free to comment or review!

Enjoy!


All the laughter in the super robot's main command center sounded faint within the metal walls, but yet due to having specialized hearing within her circuitry, the joyfulness sounded clear as day to Jinmay, making her wish she could partake in the fun that her teammates, she considered family, were having.

But she just wasn't in the mood.

She sighed, placing her hand upon a scanner near a metal door, hearing the light computerized voice greet her.

"Access Granted. Welcome back Jinmay, 'hope your day was pleasant!"

She couldn't help but crack a smile from that, still feeling touched that Otto went through all the trouble to create a personalized room for her in the super robot now that she became an official addition to the Hyperforce team after the war with Skeleton King had ended, much to Nova and their leader's delight.

It still alluded her how in just a couple of years past she went from thinking that she was just the average teenage girl next door that was new in town to finding out that she was actually an advanced technological type of robot that was capable of being quite a weapon of mass destruction if she wanted.

Though she couldn't lie and say her true identity didn't have its advantages and worth.

While the Hyperforce members were away defeating the dark one worm, she was entrusted to being a fellow protector of Shuggazoom which went pretty smoothly for a while before the wraiths showed up.

She also held great superiority in weapon specialties on the battlefield during the war since she practically was one herself. It certainly helped put points on the board when it came to the intense warfare that after much travailing and sacrificing, was finally won in the heroes' favor.

What felt like an endless battle for all eternity, ended up being a mere few years' time.

But so much has happened since then…

It was no secret that the war took its toll on all who were involved in the fight. So much was lost and yet many things and attributes were gained that changed everyone.

Losses and trauma were inevitable…

Jinmay winced inwardly as she frowned, remembering the cries of pain and agony that filled the air of the battlegrounds and medical tents she was assigned to every once in a while when she wasn't needed actively on the field at the time.

There wasn't one ally in the group who didn't lose at least one valuable member nor was there a dry eye present with every funeral held in honor of the brave loved ones.

Maturity became an imperative value…

Something that even lighthearted souls like Otto had no choice but to embrace as Jinmay remembered how hard he worked on anti-dead weapons every chance he got without a moment to recharge, chanting to himself over and over whatever positive words he could to hold onto whatever hope there was left to avoid breaking down from the stress.

It was even to the point where Gibson had to concoct specialized sleeping aids to add to his favorite treats like cupcakes to finally get him to power down enough to gain more energy to start again.

Though he still remained the cheerful green robot monkey ball of energy saws that was well known and loved, even he knew that at the time, war was no time for fun nor was it a joking matter.

Gibson didn't fare any better at the time either, being the team's main and chief scientist and medical specialist for any and every occasion.

Though he worked with other skilled allies that were gifted with high intelligence as he was, there were many situations that ended up hardening him even to the point where his own sanity was questionable, but that was trauma for you.

But thankfully, it was the support and bonds with the team that kept him going, even to the point where the little faith he had in the impossible proved to be worth his while.

After the things he had experienced, he dared not question the supernatural again…Well at least not on occasion anyways...

Certain realizations were recognized and finally embraced…

Jinmay felt herself smile again as she thought about the complicated yet sweet relationship status of her best friends Nova and Sprx.

At first, the very thought of wanting to get them to admit their feelings was as hard as pulling out teeth from the mouth of a dangerous beast.

Both were very guarded, even though their hidden feelings were obvious among their peers, but after the fire of hate incident, the two were walking on eggshells around each other, resulting in tensions that rose to dangerous levels.

If they weren't avoiding each other one moment, they were violently exploding the next, the violence being on Nova's part mostly and of course, the disharmony affected the team overall, causing Antuari and Chiro to intervene and literally order them to work out whatever complications that were standing in the way of them being an effective team and an even stronger family altogether in the midst of the war.

It was in those cool down moments when they finally came clean with each other on why they acted in such a way, what their greatest fears were, what hurt the most, and finally, how they felt about the other, all tying together in a tearful yet passionate and beautiful kiss that the whole team couldn't help but smile at despite the repercussions of the new couples' wrath they had to face later on once they realized the team had been watching them secretly.

Though the golden female warrior was known to be soft and sweet on the inside, her fists however, were not.

It has been said that the hardest times can either make or break you, and the war between the living and the dead was no exception.

Perspectives were sharpened…

Such as with Antauri and Chiro whose natural born leadership skills were tried and tested beyond their preparation and even sometimes, sanity would allow.

Jinmay shuddered at the times when she almost lost hope, and even worse, lost the boy that meant the world to her and the team that was the only family she ever had from both physical and mental causes.

It was in those times when she saw the bitter brutality of how the battles affected everyone, especially Chiro, was when she had no choice but to become stronger in mentality, sharper and quicker on the battlefront, and adaptable to what was going on around her.

Though her charm never faded and she still remained the happy-go-lucky, innocent flower she was in her demeanor, certain aspects to her personality were shaped that could not be programmed despite being a robot.

The countless times she'd cried her eyes out to the point of numbness and used her personal feelings of anger that were once rare but became almost a norm in the heat of battles were proof of that.

But positive aspects such as her determination, hunger to see the war to its end, and even more so, the heart and loyalty to see her loved ones win and be okay, triumphed over all the negativity and was a treasure that she held onto and that helped her boyfriend in the long run.

With an even more strenuous and taxing process to endure than them all, it seemed that the teenage leader had no choice but to mature into a man at a faster rate than he was ready for; the results of that being a mixture of failures and victories, but always lessons learned.

One of the sources of stability that remained vital was the father/bond relationship the second in command held with the first.

It was no secret that Antauri was like the father that Chiro never had. What was once a simple mentor and student relationship turned into an unbreakable bond that only a father and son could understand and such was the status with those two.

There were many ups and downs in their relationship than ever before, however. Sometimes it was due to the normalcy of dealing with a teenager, and others were the complicated burdens that came with learning how to master powers and leadership.

Chiro continued to both struggle and triumph in his powers but overall, in the end, the power primate was able and willing and eventually after much suffering, prevailed into a long awaited victory for the heroes.

The city of Shuggazoom did not return to normal overnight, however, nor would things ever go back to the way it once was after the war.

But moving forward was an ongoing process that became a cherished opportunity for all the citizens and eventually it went back into a thriving state that was comfortable for everyone.

And with Jinmay having and accepting the honor of being added to the team officially after the battle was won, it seemed like life couldn't get better for the robotic female.

She had the chance to be with the monkey team who she was proud to call her family, and the chosen one, who she was proud to call her boyfriend...if not so much more than that.

A tender, loving smile grew on Jinmay's face at the thought of Chiro.

There was always something there between them.

She knew it since the beginning when they met.

Though things got rocky and distant, somehow they always found their way back to each other...their bond growing even stronger.

Not even the burdens of the war was enough to destroy it, though it almost succeeded at times. But in the end they were unbreakable.

...Or so, that was what she wanted to believe more than anything…

But as Jinmay turned her attention to the nearby mirror that was next to her closet, her love struck smile vanished instantly.

She tried to fight the revolting grimace she felt her expression contorting into as her reflection came into focus.

Jinmay stared intently in the mirror and continued to frown, feeling the familiarity of an ongoing mental battle that was taking place in her mind and was heavily present in her processors.

The ideal of war was not over yet...

Not for her…

She quickly reached for her bedside drawer and pulled out a small, yet simple pink book and pen. Sitting on her bed, she began to write.


Um...hi? My name is Jinmay...I'd say my full name but it's long and confusing with a bunch of codes and I'm not even sure I understand what it is so I'll save myself the trouble and confusion. I gotta admit, I've never really kept a diary or journal before...But Antauri says it's always good to have an 'out' when you're feeling emotional...and I know I could always find more 'modern' ways of recording my...thoughts?...Files?...I dunno what to call them, but I like this way better...keeping a diary...it feels more...normal, more human than anything, which actually means a lot to me...So since I'm feeling...overwhelmed with emotions, I'm just gonna write it down.

Emotion...Huh, that's kind of funny considering the circumstances of what I am. What was that saying again? Never judge a book by its cover, right? Well I guess that rings true when it comes to people...They can be one way on the outside, but the inside can be a totally different story...but it's also the key of really getting to know someone...even yourself. For me, that can be taken in the literal sense...Especially because even though I may look, sound, and act human in every sense of the word, the reality is...I'm not. And boy was it a shock for me when I found out I was merely a very well put together machine, talk about an identity crisis.

And there's so much more that I still don't know about myself...and yet, if I'm being honest, I don't know if I even wanna know anymore. I've...been on quite an adventure the past couple of years...especially recently after the war...I tried to find out about who er, what I am, but what I found out...I-you know what, I actually don't wanna talk about that just yet.

If anything I'm just trying to forget my past, not that I haven't done that already...against my will...if I even had one...When Skeleton King erased my memories, I was pretty determined to recover what happened to me, who made me, and all of my past, but that got nipped in the bud pretty quickly when-Never mind. Anyways, I thought maybe I'll just deal with what I've got now as far as what I am and my powers. But my abilities seem to catch me by surprise the more I realize there's more to me than what meets the eye...or GPU, however you wanna look at it, I guess.

It's not all bad though, I mean, on the bright side I'm not helpless like I thought I was. I'm practically a weapon. And when you live in a city that for some reason is quite a target for enemies in different galaxies, but your friends and boyfriend are defenders of said city, that can prove to be quite useful. And it has been, though not at first. I couldn't hold my own very well, but now, I actually feel like I'm a part of something bigger. Especially since I joined the Hyperforce...Oh, who am I kidding, I've felt like I had an actual purpose the moment I met Chiro..A-AND THE MONKEYS TOO OF COURSE!

Jinmay blushed furiously, quickly adding on to her last sentence, before writing again.

Oh geez, there goes that feeling again...that fluttering feeling that feels like your stomach's all in knots, or in my case, wires in the worst daisy chain chords of a tangle you can find them in. I've watched shows and read books regarding a certain emotion and I've always been fascinated by it. I've even seen Nova have that expression and admit to having that feeling around Sprx, though it took a lot of prying...and avoiding her flaming fists to admit it...I heard love is a very powerful emotion...but that's just it...It's a feeling..something organic beings can feel...not robots.

...Right?

I mean there's a difference between a person that's got living cells, brain, organs, and heart and can feel so much from pain to happiness and even love...while robots, even with the best program functioning, can't feel such things...They can only know about it, process equations, copy it in their processors…

...Right?

Honestly...I dunno. I thought it was an obvious thing that humans and machines aren't the same. But there's something different about me...Either I was programmed way too accurately, or...or there's something more inside of me…because...I'm not like other robots…

I can feel pain...maybe not in the same way humans can, but I can...

I can cry… trust me, I've done it so many times..

I eat… Heck, I wouldn't mind a hover burger right now actually...But I think the shop is closed so...dang. Scratch that idea.

I can touch… I have sensors that are actually very close to human senses. I can tell between textures like when I pet that Thingy alien Otto showed me one time, it was all soft and squishy...until it turned into a monster...yeah, never mind...But another example is when I'm hugging someone...like Nova or Chiro...

...Especially Chiro…

Jinmay sighed with a sense of longing before she caught herself and shook her head at her actions.

Ugh! That tangled wired sensation again?! Moving on...

I...I can feel…Sensations like touches...and feelings that compute to human emotions like sadness, anger, excitement...love?

But is it just computing?

How can significant feelings be processed so quickly, so strongly? It's gotta be more than equations going through a processor…But then again, only organics can truly feel so a processor has gotta be the source…

...Right?

At least that's what I tell myself, until I think of how I feel when I'm around...him...When we're alone...When we met and he took me out to different places for ice cream, for hover burgers, when we played pranks, when we watched the sun rise over Shuggazoom, when we saved Shuggazoom from the wraiths and we kissed for the first time…

Jinmay closed her eyes, putting a hand to her chest.

When he hugged me tightly in the snowy zone, when we had those quiet tranquil moments in the midst of the war...and when he...when he was opening his heart to me of a past he never EVER talks about...and how he kissed me afterwards… I can never forget how I felt with that particular kiss...it was different...It was...something about it…

I can't describe it…

I still can't process it…

It made me feel...alive…

Not like turn on a switch in the back of my head, alive...I refer to that as being activated and just..I dunno, on. But this...this feeling I feel when I'm around him...and in that moment...was more than what my processors could compute.

And it made me think that maybe...there is something that makes me stand out from the rest of the robots, but puts me in common with humans...Antauri has it too I believe. It's what brought us closer together out of all the teammates…

We have a free will…

Antauri has always had it since he used to be organic, but now I'm starting to realize that I've always had it too. Somehow. I don't know how, but it makes sense of why I was so shocked when I found out I wasn't human…

Can machines have a soul? I was told it was impossible. Maybe that's true…

And boy does it hurt...

But if that's the case...maybe…

Maybe there's more to certain machine life than what meets the eye…

Because I know that what I feel...these emotions...the wire tangling one and...and this pain when I look in the mirror for some reason and see my metallic casing when I choose to activate it...I know nothing could ever be more real.

And I come to the one conclusion…

Whether it's true or false I don't know…

But inside my hardware…

There is a heart.
