    Summary

    "He immediately curls up on his side, gripping the blanket with wide eyes, as though trying to recoil from the nightmare he can barely recall. The images that had been running through his mind so clearly not seconds before recede like ocean tides to crash back on another night. He doesn't sleep much these days. He stays very, very still for a long moment until he finds the will to relax his muscles and release the breath he had been holding. When his heart slows down and the adrenaline seeps out, exhaustion settles in its place. He was tired. He was so, so tired. "

    Karkat Vantas has existed on this earth for seventeen years, but his story precedes that. The edges of past and present become a nauseating blur. Juggling two truths, two realities, is a lot for a teenager who was already cracking beneath the pressure of existing. How does one come to terms with guilt when no one remembers enough to forgive them?

    Summary

    Meme prompt; http://homesmut.dreamwidth.org/39716.html?thread=45650212#cmt45650212

    "So the kids win Sburb and they are placed on a restored Earth (both Alphas and Betas) all injuries healed and even some nifty God Tier powers left over; however there is one thing very wrong- the trolls didn't come with them.

    Everyone is confused and upset, but no matter how hard they try they just cannot locate the trolls anywhere so they become resigned to never meeting them again. As such, they just carry on with their lives and try to put Sburb behind them.

    Then, a decade later the Alternian Empire attacks Earth."

    Summary

    Karkat wakes up in his respite block on the meteor to a new body. He has no idea what the fuck happened and wants goddamn answers. The only answer he gets is that he is a black cat from earth and Dave is, as usual, incompetent.

    Summary

    The universe shifts as eight new gods visit. The gods shudder as they feel their powers moving. It's easier just to hide and deny it. No one could deny one thing, at least: the new kids at camp were weird.

    Summary

    The game was over.
    They were supposed to have won.
    But when he was separated from all his friends, living in this disturbing town with a man who smiled far too much and with no knowledge of their whereabouts or even if they were even alive, could this be considered 'winning'?
    That was a question for another time. For now, Karkat had a job to do.
    He wondered what ghastly assignment Kevin had for him today.

     

    Inspired by and set in the same universe as corvusTempus' The Longest Surviving Intern at Night Vale Community Radio.

    Summary

    The game ended with the promise of peace, earned on the backs of determined youngsters thrust into a situation they didn't understand, given the gift of a new world all their own.
    It should have continued that way, letting the youths experience their world in that peace. Unfortunately fate didn't have that in store for them. With the return of the Condescension, the battle they thought they'd left behind begins anew.
    In the fight to defend the world they created, lives are lost, only to be revived centuries later to finish the fight. In that time humans have crafted themselves into a coveted form of Lusi, raising young trolls to think and fight for themselves and their loved ones, and change the world from within the empire's ranks. Roles and species shift and change, but relationships, long forgotten through the stretch of time, remain.
    Is it possible, with all the changes between them, for the young creators of the universe to complete the task that wiped them out before?

    Formerly Will You Be Striders? Ratings to change as story progresses.

    Summary

    You get on the train, one of those “mixed” trains that barely deserve the name because trolls generally don’t get on them. Even so, it’s packed tight by the time you find your way to one of the windows, waiting for the doors to close and your bloodpusher to stop trying to pop out of your mouth. You look at your palmhusk and read the text over and over.

    Canway Station, Number 4, third car, 3:00. - Bro
