ASSTR: Girl is a glitch/error

bobdoleusa

Read this some time ago on Asstr, and really enjoyed the premise. I don't believe this story fits SOL's rules.

Premise: Future world where everything is pretty much controlled and decided for people. A young man works his way up to being a cook, thanks to the tutelage of his mother (whom he doesn't know is his mother). He applies to get a wife, and is given a little girl. She's been called a glitch or error, because the computer that controls everything has her being older than she really is, and it causes her no end to her grief. The man and the girl fall in love, the man's mother kinda of leads a revolution, and everything works out. And there's a secret society underneath the ground. And then there's something about hermaphrodites sprung up at the end. Not quite sure about that, another reason why I want to revisit this story.

Thanks in advance.

Apart from the age of the wife, this struck me as similar to one of aubie56's stories - Issue Wife. The first chapter is credited to DA Porter. Possibly not related but worth checking.

If you can remember names of protagonists, you could try Google to search ASSTR.

Thanks, but that wasn't it. I don't remember any of the characters' names, but I think the girl is called "Glitch" (though she has a real name). I also thought the title was called "The Glitch", but my searches on ASSTR didn't come up with anything. I even tried subject searches for synonyms of 'glitch' (like 'mistake', 'error', etc.), but no luck. I even tried a Google search with some terms and story premise, but no luck.

There are various ASSTR repositories. I used to have one on my computer, but a failed HD finally ate it. It contained something like 18 years worth of ASSTR stories, and was from about twelve years ago.

I'll give it a try when I hit a dry patch. Currently I'm beavering away on a couple of stories so that's not likely to be any time soon.
