    Summary

    When you and Karkat were just starting out, you accidentally made him lay eggs. You may have freaked out a little, but the two of you got rid of them and everything was fine.

    But give it eight years (or five thousand and eight years, depending on how you count) and things change. Because now there are mothergrubs, and now Karkat's had that adult molt. And with it being an option, Karkat's enamored with the idea of properly contributing to a brood.

    Alternate Title: Karkat has Eggs, Dave has Feelings, and John just Wants Everyone to be Happy

    Summary

    = = = > DAVE: Notice the Door opening behind you.

    What?

    The thing that you hear next is a small creak coming from the Door that you just so happen to be standing in front of, back to it so that you can watch all of your friends. Terezi is the first one to notice something, probably sniffing it out with that keen snout of hers, and before long Rose’s head snaps towards your direction too, eyes slowly widening as she let go of Kanaya’s hand, using it to latch onto one needlewand as the other raises to point.

    You think that she says something, maybe something along the lines of, “Behind you!” but you don’t get the chance to see it clearly. As your head turns, you catch a glimpse of a black mass there, one with a white face. You have no time to react. And even if you did, what the hell would you do? This is something from the universe that you all created- this is one of your creations, technically, and it’s apparently strong enough to open up this literal Door to the Void.

    You have no time to react as a skeletal hand clamps over your mouth and drags you back, through the Door.

    Summary

    Skaia High is full of a strange assortment of characters; the douchebag who plays guitar (badly) to pick up chicks, the 17-year old who still carries around Pokémon cards, but everyone finds him attractive regardless, the girl who became a certified lifeguard at 14, the disguised albino, the girl who’s best friend blinded her in 7th grade, and a myriad of other odd friends. They are slowly finding their way, paving their paths as they grow up. This is a compilation of their stories.
    ---------------------
    Karkat Vantas has a lot of insecurities, and doesn't know how to handle them. With the complications of high school drama thrown into the mix, Karkat must figure out how to cope with his issues, or run the risk of driving his friends away.

    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

    Karkat watched perplexed for a few minutes, it seemed that the sun-glasses clad blond was almost terrified of the water, shaking as the crowd of teenagers around him tried anything to get him into the depths of the two foot kiddy area. Karkat sighed, deciding to alert them of his presence to help the poor kid they had surrounded. He stood and padded over, making sure his bag and towel were on the chair so no grubby fingers would be tempted to steal it.

    Summary

    Dave's read those stupid soulmate happily-ever-after articles, and he finds them completely cliche. Wouldn't anyone? Their filled with guarantees and fake smiles. It's almost sickening. So there is one thing that everyone ought to know about Dave: he does not give two shits who turns out to be his stupid soulmate, even if she's hot and smart. Because there is one thing Dave knows for sure...that relationships don't last, and they are not, in any way, "perfect".

    Summary

    The job will be nearly impossible. Karkat Vantas - as skilled an assassin as he may be - has never been assigned such a high risk target. But the pay drives him to accept. He will kill the heir to the Dersite throne, and live like a king for the rest of his life. It should have been straightforward and emotionless. When he meets a peasant on the street and gets attached, however, he begins to question whether or not the risk is worth it when all he needs is Dave.

    Summary

    Five minutes is all Dave needs to ruin everybody's lives, apparently, especially his own. An accident in the labs begins the long and painful process of transforming into a troll, and though trolls may look remarkably similar to humans for creatures that evolved on different planets in different universes, they aren't the same at all. The transformation is debilitating, and he is forced to trust Karkat to take care of him and even keep him alive as his very insides shift within him.

    Rose, meanwhile, begins work on some sort of solution -- after all, Seer of Light may as well mean Knower of Knowledge, right? She should know this. But her experience with breaking the rules is of little help when there are none to begin with, and she can hardly play with fire when it's not herself at risk of burns but her newly-discovered brother.

    As time wears on with no solution, the meteor crew can't help but wonder: are they doomed? Or is there redemption for their timeline yet?
