The point about C.C.'s contract being rather illogical in always being the seeking of death. She can make her contract into anything. If her code is her the source of her suffering, which it is, then her contract should be simply the loss of the code, not death. Hence my attempt at a humorous contract like "Take my code and build me a house in Australia." It gives her a goal, the loss of her curse, and it gives her a chance to start life new in her house in Australia.
