    Summary

    You keep trying to pretend this is just some kind of awful dayterror. You'll wake up any minute and go bitch to Kankri about how being on this planet is bad for your sensitive temperament. Any minute.

    Not this minute. This minute the humans are shoving you into a scraped-bare ablution block that reeks of unfamiliar, cloying-sweet chemicals and letting you just fall on your front like a miserable mistreated tool.

    Summary

    You do not want to talk about Aranea, your... you don't know either. Your shellfish traitor. "You angling for my diamond, Serket?"

    "As if," Vriska says.

    Summary

    "What gives?" he says then, as he shrugs his way out of the gi and you watch the changing shadows under his collarbone. "Some chump at this party still has a turtleneck on."

    "Yeah, well, some asshole around here doesn't know how to shut up and let himself be spoiled," you say. "Get in the goddamn tub, Strider."

    Summary

    You definitely want to encourage Equius, among other verbs. This stupid gift exchange is just forcing your hand, when you wanted more time to get to know him, figure out who he is when he's not being completely suborned by your worst successful project to date. You don't know enough of his buttons yet to be sure you're pushing the right ones.

    Summary

    “My shift’s over,” he says. “You wanna get a drink, Mr. Ampora?”

    Your school tour is going to notice you’re not in attendance any microsecond now, if it hasn’t already. Your school tour can go to hell.

    “Yes,” you say fervently, and he grins that awesome grin again.

    Summary

    You squirm your way between her thighs and suddenly her hand is braced against you, right below your belly button, like she's holding you at bay. "Dave," she says, and she's alarmingly likely to be serious when she uses your name, "let's do it the other way this time."

    Summary

    "You're so soft," he says. "I mean—I'm not trying to say you're weak, that's—that's the last thing I'd pity you for, I just. Fuck."

    You nuzzle his cheek, breathing in deep. Everything he says makes you want to just squish him and pet his silly head, and everything about how he feels and smells makes you want to rip his clothes off. "Let's," you say.

    Summary

    "It's not purrlite to tease," she says, and you know she ain't mad for real—nothing else feels like the prickle-hot in your pan of Meulin being pissed—but you scoot a little closer all the same.

    "Shit, kitten, you know I'm all being a rude motherfucker," you say. "Thought you liked me that way."

    Summary

    "If you feel that need to dominate—to be in charge, to win—then this is actually a pretty safe way of dealing with that," Dirk says, looking you in the eyes. It doesn't sound like a general, impersonal 'you' at all. "You get what you want and so does your partner. It's not a lot like the bullshit you see in the media."

    "But I sh—it's not right to want that," you say, and by now your nerves are thrumming with an echo of the same panic you felt in Cronus's apartment.

    Dirk shrugs. "You can spend your whole life trying to make yourself normal, whatever the fuck that actually means, or you can accept how you're different and start looking for ways to be happy."

    Summary

    You know something's up the second time Karkat brings you a new drink without you having to whine. You frag the last alien on the map and then look up at him. "What's the deal, KK, you're never this polite. You put something in this?"

    "No," he says, which makes you more suspicious, and then he amends that to, "Not yet."

    It's his turn to pick something weird for you guys to try. The rule is you don't have to ask each other for permission unless there's going to be pain involved, and after last time you're expecting him to push it a little.

    Summary

    You push yourself up to a sitting position. "Bro," you say. "Long time no see." You manage to keep your voice almost totally steady, even.

    He's sitting cross-legged in the sand, his elbows on his knees, his katana planted point-down next to him. His horns echo the shape of his shades, jagged outward-facing points. You wonder what yours look like, but you think you'd lose points for reaching up to cop a feel of your own headgear.

    "Come on. We don't exactly have the high ground out here."

    Summary

    The night-time sleeping period is the longer one, from midnight-ish until nearly dawn, but you feel like this time you spend almost the whole night tossing and turning. It helps to have an idea of what you're going to do, but you're still so nervous. He said yes. You never expected him to say yes.

    Summary

    You try to dress nice. How do you dress nice for a sex club? You have no fucking idea. But you've got the greaser cool guy look down pretty good, and you think it works for you. You wear your tightest t-shirt. You spend like fifteen minutes in front of the bedroom mirror trying to decide which pair of jeans is the most flattering for your glutes. This is your chance.

    Summary

    It's not a glamorous job, but you can set your own hours, the pay rate is good now that you know what you're doing, and it leaves you with enough free time to enjoy your hobbies. You like to think you're doing pretty well for yourself.

    Summary

    You don't want anything to do with anyone who wants anything to do with this shitty record label, right? Except you do honestly need a social circle that's bigger than just your moirail and your kismesis, so you might as well practice interacting like a real live troll while you’re out here. You find yourself attempting a smile that feels dumb as hell, and you try to think of something relatively not-obnoxious to say.

    Summary

    Your superiors think you are the best possible agent for the tough cases, and if they don't quite understand why you have, at your young age, enough skills for any two trolls—well. You tell yourselves that of course most people aren't clever enough to figure you out, and you try to be more smug than furious.

    Summary

    You may not know fuckall about romance according to Karkat's tearjerker flicks, but you know your martial history just fucking fine, and bringing your resources to bear on someone else's fight is a flush gesture with a long and noble tradition. "Lemme come help you out. It'll be easier with company, right? I can help you get the preparations done. An' I can bring provisions for while you're hivebound."

    Summary

    By the time the two of you have killed the joint, there's a comfortable haze over your mind. You're not so angry anymore. It's nice to be able to let go of that for a while, and not feel so wound tight with it. Cronus's eyes have slipped to half-lidded, his fins fluttering gently as he breathes. When you pull your shirt off he blinks at you a few times and says, "Wow."

    Summary

    You feel the shift in the air behind you as someone else approaches, but you don't get up. You'll waste anyone who tries to fuck with you right now.

    "Hot damn," says a voice almost but not quite like Terezi's. "Double trouble, huh?"

    Your dancestor snickers, and you look up as dancestor Pyrope swaggers around into view.
