''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/501101/chapters/879724 Young Offender]]'' is an AlternateUniverse FanFic for ''Manga/{{Cyborg 009}}'' which explores a world where the first generation of cyborgs successfully managed to escape from Black Ghost soon after their capture and conversion. As they spend the next several decades trying to evade recapture, Ivan, Jet, Francoise and Albert must also learn how to overcome their differences and work together in order to survive.

Complicating matters further is that in this universe, Ivan was upgraded to a boy more like a fourteen-year old... something that has unexpected side-effects on his psychic powers. And he wasn't the only psychic in Black Ghost's ranks -- his own ''mother'' supports them, and will do '''anything''' to get her baby back. And the organization's willing to learn from their mistakes, ensuring that the ''second'' generation won't turn on them so easily...
