    Summary

    Protect the caravan, rest, come home. It was an easy assignment, especially for a seasoned guard like Prowl, and perhaps he could even do some sight-seeing if it all went to schedule.

    But things are rarely as simple as they should be.

    Summary

    GODDAMN do you hate this place, these weirdly-colored hornless people who move through the streets in overwhelming swarms with their constant suspicious glares, the endless disturbing roar of vehicles on the streets outside and in the sky, that hideous and malicious sun, but you don't hate any of it as much as you hate yourself for talking yourself into this mess to begin with.

    That's you right there, Karkat motherfucking Vantas, eternal master of making astonishingly bad decisions that he can't do anything about but regret and then brood over endlessly, and you think you probably would have slit your own throat with one of your sickles long before the entire quarter of a sweep you've managed to stand being stranded here if not for the presence of the troll who's abruptly and gently knocking on your door.

    [[A long fic with significant focus on Karkat and Kanaya in a universe where, after a brutal three month war ending with a sudden change in politics, the Alternian Empire attempts to repair species relations by sending volunteers to live in the Sol system.]]

    Summary

    Karkat, opening for him, glared until he spied his not really injured but definitely pitiful state. And rolled his eyes. "I knew you wanted to learn troll customs, but getting here like any other troll through ' hardships untold' or whatever, is ridiculous." Or, in Karkat-ese, you idiot, you're not bleeding to death and I can't tell if you're injured, but you look fine to me. "Get your fat sack seat inside."

    Summary

    When Mustang's unit is transferred to the 4077th M*A*S*H as diplomats, it seems like a good thing. But something darker is going on, and Amestris's problems are about to spill over into Korea.

     

    Started in 2010, and still going after some long hiatuses, here's a story about a universe in which there's a world on the other side of the manga/Brotherhood Gate, too--but it's 1950's Korea rather than pre-WWII Germany. Expect snark and angst in equal portions.

    Summary

    In the Shire, hobbits say: “What lovely weather we're having.” They also stir their teacups for four and a half clockwise rotations, place their left elbow seven-eighths down the way of the arm rest, and sniffle pointedly, which roughly translates to: “This tea is over-steeped and bland, your furniture is both uncomfortable and horrifically tasteless, and you're a twit of a host.”
    And I think that's beautiful.

    (Hobbitish is a language of manners and etiquette; the dwarves don't even know that Hobbitish is a thing; and Bilbo is trying to keep a straight face while the Company unintentionally sexually propositions him and challenges him to pie-eating contests to the death.)

    Actions speak louder than words.
