    Summary

    In which Jade, Karkat, Gamzee and Feferi deal with complicated lives, fall into various flavors of quadrant-crossing emotionally messy love with each other, several minor noteworthy characters make key appearances to flesh out the plot and the setting, people process their various emotional problems at one another with questionable grace, one protagonist quits school for the foreseeable future, one gets a less shitty job, one escapes an abusive environment, and one learns to relate to others as emotional peers. Features several moves of house, a not inconsiderable amount of worldbuilding, several instances of characters whose relationship to their gender is appreciably different from canon with pronouns to suit, non-canonical troll blood colors, at least one discussion of xenolinguistics, very little in the way of direct conflict, a great deal of emotional turmoil, attempted mood and setting evocation through sensory details, several subtle injokes referring to the process of conceiving and writing this fic, and one tired gag in which the contents of the fic are described in the form of an Alternian movie title.

    Summary

    Everyone knew that the Signless was a dreamer and a speaker, he dreamed of what could be, of peace and equality in the Hemospectrum and he spoke of those dreams in his sermons. Kankri, although he has nothing to do with this, was a speaker, he could rant for days on end, although few would listen to him. Kankri never dreamed, not about the past, not about the future, not about anything. However, Karkat was like his ancestor in the sense that he was a dreamer and a speaker, he dreamed of the past, of what once was and he spoke of things he believed were needed for him and his friends to survive the game, they followed each word with precision (no matter how much some of them disagreed) and they trusted him with their lives. Karkat's dreams start shaping into something more well known to him and his friends, the beginning of the rebellion against the Highbloods, just sweeps before his ancestor was executed. Karkat meets and forms a brotherly bond with his ancestor, whom he proudly calls 'mini-me', although the Signless is hundreds of sweeps older than him. The pain of losing those who he calls family in the game was hard enough on him, what would happen if Karkat witnessed the execution of his 'brother'?

    Thirteen years ago, found abandoned and without a memory but his name, a small boy was taken into the Maryams' care.

    Karkat Vantas has had many a nightmare since he was found that day. Every time, it was the same in the sense that he always ended up drowning one way or another. He often ponders why it is he has these dreams.

    Summary

    The first of two Potterstuck series. The other will follow along the plot line of a group RP I will hopefully be joining, whereas this will be following along the events of my own personal headcanons! The first chapter is just telling you everyone's name and house and other stuff like that, it's really just informative about the characters, and the second is actual story stuff.

    Summary

    But the trolls did not account for failure, did not account for the black-bloods to fight back, and certainly did not account for what followed. Who could have known how much strength was in a black-blood? After all, they had only been around for a few sweeps.
    It was an absolute slaughter.
    ---
    Slaves under a typical black-blood master, forced to breed and work the fields, the trolls find new ways of living they never thought possible. Their children, however, have a different plan.

    Summary

    You knew it wouldn’t last long from the very beginning. Just another fling to satisfy the requirements of drone season, more enthusiastically hated than usual for your similar trysts, perhaps. And then she became so much more, your beautiful, blue-eyed bitch. She’s nothing. A dalliance. A flirt. A lowblood whore. Gods, who are you kidding, the two of you are fucking serendipitous.
