    Summary

    When John's dad begins sexually abusing Dave behind closed doors under the guise of "love", there is little Dave can do to protect himself. Caught between the threats and actions of John's dad and his abusive older brother, Dave has nowhere to turn and nowhere he feels safe.

    That is, of course, until he meets the son of a violent gang leader who also feels a bit worse for wear himself.

    Summary

    Only the wind sang among the trees as a small boy ran through the thick forest, his small feet thumping against the dried dirt as he tried to run away from the scene he had just witnessed. Everything was red. From the flames that licked at the walls of his hive and to the blood bathing the floor, getting bigger and bigger as its sources thrashed in pain.
    The high bloods were never one for mercy.

    ----
    Or the AU in which the trolls are refugees from Alternia and are constantly being bullied by the human race leading to a deal being made between a certain cool kid and crabby alien so the latter could stay safe.

    Summary

    Karkat is just having an awful birthday. It's raining, cold, and he has finals tomorrow. Literally the only thing that could make it worse would be if some witch from six hundred years ago decided to come cast a curse on him that would make him into some ugly horned monster until he could find true love. If true love is even a thing.

    Summary

    Life truly hadn’t been the same since the day Dave Strider’s brain decided to betray him.

    He could remember the day completely, July 24th of last year. He could remember the time, right when he woke up in the AM. He could remember being able to see the day before and then the next, lights were too bright, and he was too dizzy to walk straight.

    Eventually, he would learn that sunglasses would be his savior, but that day, all he could do is try not to panic with the confusion spreading through his mind.

    Click Click.

    'Perfect,' he thought as he looked down at the picture. The man was sleeping, bathed in a soft light from his bedside lamp. Even on the small screen, Dave could easily count out every freckle that patterned the beautiful mocha skin. 'He's all mine, whether he knows it or not.'

    Summary

    "What is it? What is it?" Nepeta presses right up against his shoulder to get a better look.

    "It's a cassette." Karkat is dumbfounded, "Where the shit do you even get a cassette?"

    "Is there a note?"

    "No, nothing." He checks the packaging one last time. There's not even a return address.

    "Any idea who would send you a cassette?"

    "Fuck if I know." Karkat says, "Definitely not John or Jade, though I guess Jade might have access to one. But she would have covered it in stickers or something, not just left it blank. Sollux would have sent a disk, if anything. He'd probably have just emailed me a file instead of going to all this trouble anyway."

    "Well, whoever it is, they really don't want you to know that it's from them." Nepeta is inspecting the tape, "This is crazy. This is like..." Suddenly, her big, brown eyes seem to light up, "This is just like a rom-com! A mysterious tape... From a lover!"

    Summary

    Sometimes, he's just Dave.

    The ordinary, cool, human Dave. And he's okay with that.

    But sometimes, he can feel someone else pulsing under his skin, some other side of him that forces its way in and pushes everything else to the side. A person that leaves him feeling breathless and confused and stronger than ever before. Every day is a fight. Because he doesn't know whether to keep it chained or set it free.
    --
    Karkat is a college kid trying to make it in the opportunistic town of New Skaia, who has a loving moirail and no worries in life. Karkat is a college kid who is failing his classes, is completely out-of-place in New Skaia, and is afraid he might be the one who cares more. Karkat is a kid who is trying to make it in life, despite his blood disorder and the fact the world likes to kick him when he's down.

    Karkat is so, so tired.

    Summary

    "Alright, bite the bullet here Strider, admit it to yourself. The first step to healing is acceptance. Or at least the last step of grief. Maybe? Why does everything gotta be an AA program, handing out steps left and right. Except instead of all admitting that we're middle aged men with an addiction to getting sloshed and beating our wives it's more 'Step 1: have homolust thoughts. Step 2: freak out. Step 3: who the fuck knows. Step 4: acceptance."

     

     

    What.

     

    “Hey wait shit is someone here?”

     

    Fuck you said that out loud.

    Summary

    Due to a very boring twist of fate called Sollux Captor's laziness, Sgrub never happened, leaving the beta Trolls to continue their lives on Alternia unawares of what could have been. We begin our journey with Karkat Vantas, as he prepares to enter the Imperial City, lie to the drones about his blood colour, turn nine sweeps old, join the Threshecutioner academy, spend more time with his friends than he ever thought he would, fill a quadrant he didn't know he needed, and absolutely, positively, NOT have a mental breakdown of any kind. Oh and there's also the small matter of helping the Heiress overthrow the scariest fish this side of the Galaxy. Gods help him.

    Updates will be sporadic but hopefully not too infrequent and tags will be added with chapters (except for main relationships that are already listed as they become relevant)

    Spin-off fics are listed in the end notes with links.
