    (a dollop of implied johnkat for the soul)

    After inhabiting Can Town, Karkat and John sort of went their separate ways, living in different apartments with different people.

    Summary

    A large group of internet friends from across the group. Some of them might have a criminal record. Several of them have relationships that, if fully realized, could lead to an explosive reaction as destructive as several bombs going off. None of them have very long fuses.

    They're all going to meet up over winter break.

    Vriska and Terezi have a past, with an uncomfortably high body count.
    Dave and Karkat seem to have made it a life's mission to get on each other's nerves.
    Rose and Kanaya get along great online, but will they be able to translate their chemistry from words into actions?
    Roxy and Jane want to save Calliope from her abusive brother, but they don't know just how dangerous her family is.
    Dirk and Jake, aka two teenaged boys who probably couldn't communicate their true feelings to save their lives.
    But don't worry. They've totally got this situation under control.

    Summary

    "You think you’re going to be sick. Your two childhood best friends are going out with each other.

    Your two childhood crushes are dating each other."

     

    It was hard when your first love left you with a broken heart you never knew you could have. It was hard when your second love pushed you away out of fear.

    It was harder when you realized that after all those years, they both still loved you and were still willing to give you a chance.

    Summary

    Your name is DAVE STRIDER and this guy just said the words on your thigh.

    (So, in this Soulmate AU you have a phrase that appears usually from 5th to 8th grade. This phrase is the first words your soulmate says to you. Most of the time your soulmate will have moved to your town or you'd see them when it appears. When you first get it, it feels getting a tattoo. When you eventually find you're soulmate the mark will burn, softly but it will still hurt a bit. If at any point in time your soulmate dies before you, your mark will be crossed out. It will feel like a knife slowly dragging across each word. For a year after that if you look at anyone you might be even remotely attracted to. Your mark will burn and sting. After maybe 2-3 years that pain will be gone, and you will be "free" to date. It will not work out, however. If they find their soulmate you'll be left alone. But if someone else who has gone through the pain of losing a soulmate then it may work out. Now, this is my AU there are many like it but this one is mine. You can use the idea of it just credit me -AD)

    Summary

    Karkat Vantas always accepted the fact that he was not going to live past nine sweeps. It was just a certainty of his sad, miserable life. At least, that was until his friends found out and decided to hatch a plan to get him out of the Alternian empire. A plan that actually worked.

    Now, he was stranded on an alien planet, at the mercy of some strange creature that was either trying to help him or going about some freaky ritual of flirting with your food before you eat it.

    Also, aliens have sunglasses.

    He was better off dying on Alternia, wasn't he?

    Summary

    You don't remember all of the details, on account of the nasty bump you took to your noggin upon impact that knocked you out for the last three hours, but you remember enough to know that you were in a super awesome space battle with an Alternian drone, trying to keep them from delivering some very important data about your home planet to their evil alien empress, and just as they opened a wormhole to escape, you desperately tried to stop them by propelling yourself forward with a gust of ion charged space wind and ended up getting sucked through the tear in space as well, like a spider getting flushed down a toilet. Now you are here...wherever here is.

    (John has to survive in this weird place full of glowing things and intelligent(?) salamanders until help can arrive. He's not the only one who crashed here, though, and the other one is NOT happy. Is this planet big enough for two?)

    Summary

    Karkat's life wasn't all that peachy, but he could deal with it. He still had his closest friends, and all he had to hope was that he didn't drive them away with his attitude. In the first few days of middle school, a new kid comes into view, who's apparently Rose's cousin. The only downside is that this new kid, Dave Strider, is a douchebag, and is taken a liking to teasing him. It also doesn't help that he hangs out with with the kids who bully him as well. Karkat just hoped Dave wouldn't turn out like them, he'd just be someone he wouldn't have to deal with. That didn't seem to be the case.

    Summary

    Karkat hates Dave, with both black and red feelings. He knows that he can't have the cool kid because Dave's dating his friend Terezi. That doesn't stop the candy blooded troll from acting on his anger...and emotions, to get just one shot at the human.

    Summary

    Sadstuck from [S] Cascade if, after Dave, Dirk, and Terezi deal with the Noirs, they find Karkat. Based on Mumford and Sons' "Little Lion Man" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLJf9qJHR3E), I would suggest playing it in the background while reading the fic.
