Gabriel didn't always have a name. Born in a mysterious facility, he knows he's not human, but an experiment with a purpose that no one is willing to reveal.

This story was originally written as a part of the Goodreads M/M Romance Group's 'Love is Always Write' event. A collaboration of many authors to respond to prompts about love between male characters.
This is the prompt that inspired this story:
Changelings don't exist. That's what the government wants you to believe. We're their newest weapons for espionage, a reality after decades of failure in genetic R&D, though we still have some anomalies--dependencies--to be "fixed". We need to have genetic material to change.
They say the two of us are finally mission-ready, but I don't want to be separated from the only other "person" who understands this life. I need him.
I don't think that's a "dependency" they expected.
