    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.)

    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

    They finally start asking about the trail of dead scientists left in the relentless pursuit of sense. When the summon comes, Cecil clings to him, telling him he 'can't' leave Night Vale, and Carlos thinks it means he doesn't want him to. By he realizes he mistook a dire warning for a lover's plea, it's already too late. And Night Vale has never been the most forgiving - or easy to find - of towns. As weeks pass, it begins to seem like a distant memory at best, a desperate hallucination at worst.

    avenoir - n. "the desire that memory could flow backward."

    Summary

    Erik has just finished helping liberate Genosha, and is still very scarred by his own time as a slave. He has no way to realize that in Westchester, 'slave,' means something more like, 'an indentured servant who has human rights and whose owner is responsible for their care and keeping to the terms of the indenture contract.'

    So of course, he can't possibly exploit the beautiful boy he finds in his bed. Charles is extremely put out by this.

    Summary

    Joan Messi has spent thirteen years hiding her supernatural powers from her parents and the rest of her closed-minded suburban community. However, not only the loneliness of her mundane life but her entire reality is turned on its head when a couple of fire-powered visitors drop in from a parallel dimension.

    The ensuing journey takes Joan to a world in which superpowers much like her own have altered the course of history such that Mongols never raided, Columbus never sailed, gender inequality is a thing of the past, Europe is a war-torn slum, and a conquering West African empire has led the world into a new age of technology. As she struggles to renegotiate her notions of power, status, and identity in this upside-down environment, she becomes caught up in a young friend’s scramble to solve the mystery of his father’s murder. And before they know it, the two are pulled into a twisting game of combat, crime, and illusion against opponents far more dangerous than either of them could have imagined.

    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."

     

    ((Lord love a duck, I'm so dreadfully sorry!))
