    Summary

    The world is ending. Dave Strider can't tell if the bender he's on is because of that, or because of how bad stuff is fucked up with Rose, or just because his own bullshit has finally caught up to him. All he knows is that if the world DOES end today, maybe that wouldn't be the worst thing.

    Of course, he can't throw in the towel. His fate is already written. He raises a resistance. He duels the false presidents. He stands against the Empress herself. So maybe that's why Skaia allows a glitch that carries a consciousness across sessions that might save Dave's shitty life.

    Summary

    Quiet, like you could deny even saying it, you tell him that you’re proud. You say the name you picked for him, all those years ago, when Rose first mentioned the entire kid thing. The name that had felt just about right with the thought of him, shitty cliché as it may be.

    Summary

    There are many weird feelings that exist. For example, losing a limb, but having the ghost sensation that it is still there. For Rose Lalonde, her weird feeling is that she knew Jade English, once, but it was much too long ago for her to remember the right way.

    Summary

    'My dear, sweet friends I truly am sorry that it must be I who has to send you to your deaths but what I ask of you must be done, and whether I instigate it or not I truly feel that your fate would have been the same.

    You will be the beginning and end of Earths revolution.

    Whatever history is left behind at the end after our inevitable defeat, I know that the two of you will be remembered as nothing less than Heroes of Humanity.'

    Summary

    Tactically speaking, a Knight of Time and a Seer of Light is a nearly unbeatable combination. - Aradia Megido, in a universe our heroes will never know.

    By the time she's ten years old, Rose Lalonde knows how she's going to die.
    By the time she's thirteen, she knows when she's going to die.
    By the time she's twenty two, she knows who she's going to die with.
    She knows she's going to be killed by a tower fish woman in a futile last stand with nothing left but the clothes on her back and a pair of slightly magical knitting needles.
    She knows she's going to die at fifty three years old, with greying hair and wrinkles and slight arthritis in her knuckles and knees.
    She knows she's going to die with Dave Strider at her side, with the distinct feeling that what he is to her is not what he should be, but no idea how they could have turned out any differently.
    She knows she's going to die, and, for the most part, she wouldn't have changed a single thing she did.

    It's not quite a babysitting job when your mindee is better at taking care of himself and your home than you ever were, and he's kind of an undiscovered genius with a pretty nice ass.

    Summary

    "I'm starting to get the impression that you aren't taking this very seriously," Dirk says, and the way his eyebrows pinch together is not a good sign. Jake's been earning a lot of pinched-eyebrows, lately. He is starting to wonder if maybe he isn't a very good boyfriend. A good boyfriend would be less exhausted at the prospect of spending more time with the object of their affection. A better boyfriend would have found some way by now to leverage that time into fewer planetary expeditions and more explorations of a more personal and intimate nature.

    Set about 6 weeks into the alpha session. I thought a bit about how Roxy said the "writing was on the wall" with these two from the start and what the earlier days must have been like. And then promptly wrote like twelve thousand words where half is just shameless smut so hey ENJOY

    Summary

    TT: Thirty seconds of consciousness.
    TT: Now, scientists would tell you that's impossible, that you'd pass out first.
    TT: But not a single one of them carries the label of "Prince of Heart," nor all the self-splintering and extra awareness that comes with it.
    TT: Which could theoretically not only guarantee consciousness, but also extend the length of it.
    TT: What do you think, Dirk?

    Summary

    Jake is excited to see Dirk, thinking of how he wanted to kiss him last night before bed, but didn't. He's also really frigging nervous to see him, thinking of how he wanted to kiss him last night before bed, but didn't. He thinks he recognizes what he's feeling from movies. 'Thrill' is the word, he thinks. Nerves and anticipation coming together.

    Summary

    Set toward the end of the Alpha session. Dirk has boundary issues. Jake has communication issues. So what better way to deal with it than to dance across all kinds of boundaries while disallowing communication altogether?

    Brilliant.

    Summary

    The end of the world IS at the bottom of a bottle.

    An imperial and warlike species invading Earth from another galaxy is keeping tabs on celebrity Dave Strider, and he is the last person to be able to tell you why. The action really kicks off with an entirely too invasive and disturbing visit to an Alternian medical clinic, and spirals out of control towards condescending gifts, a multi-million dollar movie, and a romance to be marked for the ages.

    Life is only but a chance to be remembered by someone.

    Summary

    You hate the fact that you love him, because he's so much younger than you in this timeline, and the fact that you want to kiss him so badly makes you sick. You stop caring about it when he stops.
