4 Works in John Egbert/Terezi Pyrope/Karkat Vantas
John raises a brow at Terezi. “Do you really want to do this in front of your boyfriend?”
She raises one back. “Do you want to do it in front of yours?”
His shoulders hitch on a soundless laugh. “Good point,” he says and catches your eyes right before he kisses her.
The legislacerator Neophyte Pyrope and the threshecutioner Probationer Vantas had a failing relationship that was vacillating between red and black in a destructive way, until the internationally wanted prankster thief John Egbert swooped in and totally made a mockery of ashen relationships. What kind of auspistice lets it get all the way to the pail? A failed one, that’s what. It still counts if he holds her hands so she can't claw up his pretty human boyfriend TOO much, right? No, no it doesn’t.
So, um. Terezi is kissing her. By the way.
"Wowza. Lesbos R Us, at long last. I knew that day would come. Anyone got a camera."
Terezi has a lot more teeth to get nibbly with than Karkat and her tongue is way longer and oh lord does she know how to use it. Jade wonders to herself, vaguely, why she never kissed her boyfriends' girlfriend before. That was a really silly oversight.
"Haha, shut up, Dave, you've been modeling for the Gay Dudes R You catalogue for like three years now."
"Like you can talk, Mister It's Not Gay If He Doesn't Have Balls To Touch."
oneshot, plus a couple of ficlet sequels.
A morning in the Pyrope-Vantas-Egbert household.
Captchalogue Prompt: A troll auspistices hate between a troll and a kid
So in my headcanon, an auspistice can do any of three things for a couple:
1. Keep their platonic hate from boiling into a kismesissitude, probably because one or both caliginous parties already have a kismesis
2. Prevent an otherwise healthy kismesissitude from becoming too violent and thus dangerous to the caliginous parties or others
3. Stabilize a relationship that toggles from red to black
...and those are the only duties an auspistice will typically take on. But the current situation is not typical, so I'd like to see an auspistice trying to facilitate troll/human kismesis. This could also work with a human auspistice, but I think it'd be interesting to see a troll auspistice trying to deal with a nontraditional clubbed situation in order to handle a nontraditional spades situation. I mean, for a human, it would be trying to handle and advise their friend and one of those crazy trolls, but for a troll, it would be a corner of their own romantic life on the line - more intimate, more personal. I think it'd be cool to see.
