    Summary

    Your name is John Egbert, and you're blind.

    Your dad seems to think the car accident that caused that has left you permanently scarred and emotionally crippled -- so he flips tirelessly through the newspaper until he finally finds a support group of people in a similar situation. Here, you meet Terezi Pyrope, an eccentric female who's hooked on giggling. She also happens to attend your new school; dad thought he was robbing you of making friends by homeschooling you.

    Then you meet her friend, Dave Strider, some coolkid who can't even remember that you're blind (seeing as Rose told you he waved to you -- no one waves to a blind kid) and you might kind of have a crush on him. Just a little one. Nothing major. Until you realize it's actually pretty major, and you're royally screwed.

    Summary

    Karkat always assumed that his life would be over as soon as the Empire caught wind of the cherry-colored sludge pumping through his vascular system. No muss, no fuss--just a good, clean culling fork to the chest. Little did he know that there was something far worse in store...

    "Please tell me my auricular sponge clots are failing me here. Tell me I did not just hear you say that you are sending me to some shithole alien planet where I will be nook deep in squishy hairless monkeys.”

    Meanwhile on Alternia: the political tides are shifting and the disappearance of a certain mutant blood sets into motion a revolution which could entangle Alternia and Earth together forever--or destroy them both.

    Summary

    Lonewood is a small town is the middle of Kentucky. 21% of its population of 561 people are farmers. If you aren't a farmer, you live in a small town center, complete with a shoddy motel, a bar, a gas station, and a small market. It's a quaint town, with no crime, no violence, and no problems.

    Karkat Vantas is running from his past. His friends are dead, it's all his fault, and people are coming for him. He doesn't understand why they want him, or who they are, but they are after him. He needed somewhere to hide. Somewhere where there's no one who knows him, has heard of him, even seen his picture.

    Dave Strider is a bored, sad teenager. His brother is dead, it's none of his fault, but he thinks it is. He's having trouble dealing with it, in fact, you could say he's not dealing at all. He's looking for adventure, as much of that there is in Lonewood. Karkat Vantas seemed like a lot of trouble, almost more than he could handle.

    John Egbert is completely oblivious. He's living a perfect life, with a loving dad, and always enough money to get them by. In fact, its almost too perfect, but it's not like they do anything bad. But when John's eyes get opened, life becomes an eternal hangover.

    Summary

    John Egbert planned for a nice and normal 18th birthday where his tattoo proclaiming the name of his soul mate would not be a major affair. Maybe a celebratory dinner and too much cake, but well that was why he invited Dave along. What he had not planned on was waking up with Dirk Strider's name on his back.

    Summary

    Here we have another teen angst-filled sob story of a teenage boy with too much time on his hands and more suitors than hours in the day. You could read this out of curiosity or perhaps boredom, maybe even because you've run right out of angsty teenagers and their romantic escapades in your bookmark folder. Either way, I'm sure there'll be a witty one-liner or two to keep you interested.

    Summary

    There is a color for every type of cancer, a little ribbon to show support, a symbol of survival or fight. Except lung cancer, because everyone figures the people who get that had it coming, what with smoking. Except sometimes you get lung cancer randomly, without doing anything like inhaling nicotine or pesticides or any of that shit. And sometimes its not caught until the last moment, when the tumors are developed and the cancer cells are spread throughout the body. And sometimes really shitty things happen in the most unfair ways to the best people for no acceptable reason.
    And out of all those people that are good and perfect and get the kind of cancer where they’re always blamed for it, one of them had to be your friend.
    And out of your three best friends, it had to be the one you were in love with.

    With a time limit etched into the cells of John’s body, Dave is left to decide whether to be there as John’s best friend or try to spend the remaining time he has with John as his boyfriend.
    Where John looses his breath, Jade tried to push the empty space away and Rose plunges back to darkness, while Dave looses time more and more everyday.

    Summary

    Your name is John Egbert, and you hate everyone. More importantly, you hate yourself -- your stupid imperfect teeth, the even stupider headgear you're forced to wear everywhere, and the slur of every s that leaves your lips. You hate everything about yourself. Especially that you think you might like, okay not might; that you DO like, Dave Strider.

    Fuck your life.

    Summary

    "You washed my fleece pajamas without fabric softener?" Karkat shrieks, stomping downstairs and waving the garment above his head like a battle flag. "You made the insides PILL!"

    John groans, slumping so far forward he's practically touching his toes. "You're right. I really messed up."

    "You FUCKED up!" Karkat corrects in his pitchy little shriek.

    John lets his head pop back up so he can wince visibly. "Don't say fuck."

    Karkat's tail puffs up like a feather duster. "You desecrated the one thing I have propriety over in this miserable suburban SHOEBOX! YOU'VE LOST YOUR 'FUCK' PRIVILEGES!"

    Ripped from his home and everything he knows, John Egbert traverses the country against his will with an immortal creature. His only chances of escape, of rescue, lie in the sarcastic lines of red text being sent to him over Pesterchum.
