They met at the rehabilitation center: Harold was getting a tune-up, and Spike was recharging his jet pack. For the first few months they weren’t sure what they were doing. Were they just an astronaut and an android well shared a passion for collecting Tupperware, or was it something more?
Eventually, they knew it was real, true love, and that they needed to tell their supervisors, and more importantly, their partners. Harold’s bot-friend, Glyph, had suspected something for a while, but Spike’s fiance, Rudy, was shocked and mortified. No one was surprised when he ran off with Glyph. In fact, some whispered, they may end up the better match.
