    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

    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.

    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?

    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.

    Summary

    IV: "Who is the 'she' you're referring to? Someone you're emotionally close to?"

    DS: "Nah, not really. Just a girl I used to play games with. Haven't seen her in fifteen years, three months, eight days, two hours, fifty one minutes, and twenty five seconds, so I wouldn't say close exactly. Time's a bitch like that."

    Interviewer compares the figures given to the patient's stated age.

    IV: "Are you aware that what you're saying is that the last time you saw whoever it is you're referring to was roughly one minute before you were born?"

    Summary

    It's the troll's first Christmas and Karkat gets to see it all with Dave by his side. Between Mall Santa, Rose decorating the house, and mistletoe, this holiday is much more then what the nubby-horned troll expected. Karkat and Kanaya(but mostly Karkat) will have to keep up!
    Seriously though who let Rose decorate we all knew she was going to hang up some kind of pornographic christmas shit.
