    Summary

    Karkat's been stuck in the employment of the dangerous Makara clan for longer than he'd ever care to admit. With the innate empathic abilities he possesses, he serves them as a lie detector and personal confidante to the Prince of the Makara family line, Gamzee Makara. Recently, however, as he nears his eighteenth birthday, his power has begun to morph into something much more dangerous- something that needs containment and 24/7 surveillance. Something that needs close guarding.

    Dave is just a dude who's good with a blade and looking for a steady paycheck. His older brother hooks him up with a job for a group he worked a few years with, and quickly realizes he's bitten off way more than he can chew.

    Dave and Karkat live in Houston, Texas, and they go to school together. Pretty normal, except for the fact that Dave is secretly a superhero. The two go through multiple challenges including their own relationship, Bro, and Dave's superhero double life.

    Summary

    Those who were chosen to be life-long companions to a dragon were known as a Rider. The duty of a Rider is to keep peace within the country of Alternia and balance between what is living and what is magical by serving as a bridge. Karkat Vantas isn't a balancing kind of person, and yet between the dreams, the dragons returning to his village after about 15 years, and his village literally falling off the face of the earth, he ended up bonded to a dragon. What else is could possibly go wrong?

    Inspired by In Name and In Deed by Royalrastafariannaynays.

    Summary

    Karkat has been a knight in service of Alternia's princess for years when out of nowhere a man named Dave appears from a far off country. They're rivals from the first moment they meet. Then the princess sends them on a mission with some diplomat. And since HE can't speak Alternian, that means Karkat and Dave have to talk amongst themselves. Great.

    Written (late) for Davekat week 2017. Day 2 (August 7): AU/Trope Day. I picked medieval/fantasy because I'm weak like that.

    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

    Calm and collected, that's Dave Strider. The docking station around him is chaotic and loud but he is like ice, cool and clear.
    None of that is true of course, but nobody is looking closely enough to notice the way his hands shake and his eyes dart around underneath the opaque plastic of his vintage sunglasses.

    Dave Strider sneaks on board an Alternian ship in an attempt to flee his shitty situation on Earth. This is the first of many questionable decisions.

    Summary

    There were two kinds of trolls who went to Earth: rich shitheads with too much money and free time, and desperate assholes who couldn’t survive on Alternia, even with the best efforts of the young Condesce. Karkat hated the planet almost immediately, but with his home planet too dangerous for mutants, he really didn’t have any choice but to hide out on this weird little diurnal planet. At least he’d be safe. Or so he thought, right before blundering his way into an accidental friendship with the son of an anti-troll terrorist.

    Slow burn, shifting perspectives; romance really isn't the focus here but it'll still play a significant part; extra content warnings will be posted with each relevant chapter.

    Summary

    In an AU where hundreds of years ago, Trolls fled to earth because of War, the next few generations have jobs. Whats worse is that Karkat gets fired from a QuikTrip for being a troll, Rose and Kanaya have an argument over whats the best way to write (first or third person), Tavros, Vriska, and Terezi are having a huge D&D session that lasts a week, Eridan and Feferi have an argument over pie and Jane is caught in the middle while baking an actual Pie, and Sollux is sick of being sent to the Barns and Nobel Starbux to get everyone coffee in the middle of the day. Watch the Shitstorm from a safe distance!

    Summary

    This time on "I'm really bad at summaries but I will do my best."

    I present a story in which Karkat works at a restaurant where you're supposed to be rude to the customers. It's sort of the gimmick there. Normally he can handle what he's given at work and give it right back, but this just might be the straw that breaks the load. Little does our kitkat know that Dave can dish the shit better than anyone out there. Sarcastic adult boys will be sarcastic. I hope this will be as slow burning as I want it to be, but then again it probably won't.
