Sometimes you wish game powers were still a thing, that Aradia could whisk you back to before all the bad stuff happened, that you could talk to some people a little more like they probably deserved. Alas, your game powers are gone, it's 3am, and you're staring at your computer screen wide awake.
It's hard, leaving your friends behind, never being able to reach them again.
Luckily someone understands.

The game was over and done with, years ago, but still you cannot escape the after-effects of those grimdark days, when you are alone and it all comes back more real than this new life could ever hope to be.
It's a good thing he's around to bring you out of the darkness.
- Part 1 of Lux Fragilis
The Condesce, the Helmsman, and a battle fought with no weapons. The Helmsman will not let her win, but to engage in open warfare is to give her the victory.
He thinks he's found a way to win.
In which Karkat and Rose discover they have some things in common - insomnia, psychological issues, an inability to escape their pasts.
Rose can't leave the Horrorterrors behind, try as she might. Karkat left his friends behinds, and it eats him. They watch movies together. Sometimes it helps.
