    Summary

    The game ended with the promise of peace, earned on the backs of determined youngsters thrust into a situation they didn't understand, given the gift of a new world all their own.
    It should have continued that way, letting the youths experience their world in that peace. Unfortunately fate didn't have that in store for them. With the return of the Condescension, the battle they thought they'd left behind begins anew.
    In the fight to defend the world they created, lives are lost, only to be revived centuries later to finish the fight. In that time humans have crafted themselves into a coveted form of Lusi, raising young trolls to think and fight for themselves and their loved ones, and change the world from within the empire's ranks. Roles and species shift and change, but relationships, long forgotten through the stretch of time, remain.
    Is it possible, with all the changes between them, for the young creators of the universe to complete the task that wiped them out before?

    Formerly Will You Be Striders? Ratings to change as story progresses.

    Summary

    *Dave/Karkat*

    Karkat's life had turned into an inward spiral of familiar routine, where nothing much existed outside of courses and solitary movie nights.

    Until he happens to bump into a stranger on his way to college, and time starts ticking again.

    Summary

    Bargaining with the Beasts beyond the reaches of furthest space for the opportunity of a new life, this time without the albatross of Sburb hanging over their heads, does indeed grant Rose Lalonde and her friends freedom from the game—at the price of their humanity. The new universe forged by the Noble Circle is a vivid, indistinguishable replica of the Alternia thought destroyed by all involved. With an oppressive caste system and the grim reality of new lives as trolls, and all that implies, Rose and her fifteen comrades resolve to instigate revolution and overthrow the oppressive regime of Her Imperious Condescension. But they number only sixteen, having barely scraped the surface of adulthood, and they are not the gods they once thought they were, and the Empress is an ancient thing—almost more institution than living, breathing being—with the power of an uncountable horde of trolls under her grasp.

    Rose figures that makes them about even.

    Summary

    Dave and John have been best bros for awhile now, and everyone but them can see how perfect the dorks are for each other. After consulting Rose on his failed love life, John decides to try and see how dating Dave will work out- he's not a total homosexual if the only guy he even wants to try to date is Dave right?
    Dave is of course secretly delighted at this chance, and is determined not to mess things up between them. Dave makes sure this particular first date is one that will never be forgotten, and if it takes makeup and a dress to insure that, then pass the lipstick.

    Summary

    It's almost a relief when you realize it's pity you feel for him. After sweeps of listening to him die time and time again, it's like setting down a heavy load and finding that the basket was empty the whole time, the weight all in your mind.

    The war is over. The game is won. All is well. Expect no one recalls the details of the last battle. Except that no one is satisfied with their rewards. Except… now they have to return to their respective planets without saying good-bye.

    Summary

    One little near-death experience and suddenly secret paranormal investigation teams are emailing (and possibly stalking) him. So what's Dave to do but just try to get a good nights sleep and ignore the issues. This Aradia girl-ghost-robot-thing and some lost souls in need of killing probably aren't going to let that happen.

    Summary

    Written for HSO Bonus Round 5, until I realised the prompter was from my own team. Oops.

    Aradia does not want to die. Dave doesn't want her to die either, but he knows it's inevitable. So he does the best he can with the time she has left.

    Summary

    Their voices carry down the hallway like a freight train letting off all her bells and whistles – the steam is named Spades Slick. I can hear them all in the parlor. From the rhythmic slow tune played on my Father's chords, I can tell he's trying to talk some sense into Slick again. A deep voice and a high voice, like the outermost ranges of a barbershop quartet, accompany the others and banter back and forth. Another meeting of the Midnight Crew which my innocent ears shouldn't be privy to, or so Father would say.

    Summary

    Things don't go according to your plan.

    You're stopped by the sound of Tavros calling out your name with the resonance of a desperate sort of confidence.

    Turning back to them, you raise an eyebrow.

    “You're welcome to join us,” Aradia tells you.

    Your other eyebrow joins the first and you can't will them down for the life of you. You wordlessly question this, glancing between the other Hero of Time and your boyfriend for reassurance. Confirmation that you've heard this correctly. You're curious, but also rather nervous. And you're not really sure why.
