    Summary

    "I need to—" you can't, you can't say it with Mituna there. "It's my mutation," you say instead. "There are complications."

    "Okay, dude, open the door," Latula says. The knob rattles, and you miss whatever Mituna says next. "Yeah, I know, but he's still one of us. We can't just let him suffer, you know?"

     

    (Kankri misses a social outing. Some of his friends come to check up on him.)

    Summary

    The sensible thing would be to get out of here and revert to plan "avoid everyone until we're through this bubble." You've seen how scary-violent trolls can get. On the other hand, Karkat. You've been increasingly aware of your own Karkat as a potential makeouts friend for months now, which might be just a lack of other options who aren't a) your ex, b) your sister, c) dating your sister, d) the Mayor, or e) COMPLETELY PSYCHO, but despite the poor reasoning it's still a thing. Your Karkat has seemed pretty oblivious. Evil Karkat, though....

    Summary

    You are being the best boyfriend right now, right, and you're not even appropriating that word because you're only using it in your head instead of saying it out loud where Kankri could get upset. And it better be worth it, because you are so uncomfortable.

    Summary

    You raise an eyebrow over the rim of your shades and put on your best deadpan. "I'm on the hunt for anacondas."

    "In a place like this?" Harley shakes his head. "This hardly seems an appropriate environment to coax them out of hiding. Take it from someone who's wrestled a few in his day."

    Summary

    "I got you this." He sets a tiny box on the table between you and nudges it in your direction with psionics. You stare at it. It's the right size to hold a human-style commitment-designation ring, which you sometimes think would be a cool thing to have but as far as you know he's never been interested in. "For those times when I'm being a jackass and you need to snap me out of it." A little smile, a hint of the smug asslord creeping back in around the edges of the apologetic matesprit. "Or when you just want a shortcut to getting my attention."

    Summary

    She shifts, braces her hands on the counter on either side of you, not touching but penning you in. Her eyes sparkle. "Not going to yell for Fussyfangs to come save you?"

    No. If you understand the quadrant implications correctly, that would be terrible for your relationship with Kanaya. You smile at Vriska sweetly. "Is there something here from which I require saving?"

    Vriska kisses you. She has all the finesse of a cement truck and all the forbearance of a starving wolverine.

    Summary

    Honestly you don't give two shits what the kid looks like. Your audience will go for it even if you get someone who got beaten half to death with the troll ugly stick.

    The picture loads.

    You're going to make so much alien fetish money you're going to have to hire somebody to build a swimming pool on the roof, just so you can fill it with sleazy intergalactic flesh trade dollars and roll around in it like an asshole.

    Summary

    The lights dim. The Imperial anthem comes on. The video screen lights up with the title of the cinematic masterpiece you're about to be subjected to: An Adolescent's Guide to Correct Pailing Procedure, Featuring Anatomical Diagrams of External Genitalia, Three-Dimensional Modeling Simulations of the Interior Workings of a Successful Coupling, and a Live Demonstration of Appropriate Technique by Two Patriotic Volunteers.

    It isn't any better this time than it was when you watched it in the privacy of your own hive.

    Summary

    "What's it mean?" you ask. "Cause if you're askin me to call you the human empress or something, you can forget it."

    Cronus chuckles. "Nah, bro, it ain't like that. Your daddy's like... Kinda like an Ancestor, you know? Older, genetically similar, all that. But instead of being, like, a distant legendary figure, he's right there with you. He takes care of you." He cups your face in one hand, brushes a thumb across your cheekbone, and it's not pale at all.

    "That what you're offering?" you ask. "You gonna take care a me?"

    Summary

    You don't know his first name. Nobody's used it in the couple months you've been here. The other inmates call him "Bro," the wardens call him "Strider," and the first time he pinned you to the mattress he told you that you could call him "Daddy."

    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

    He huffs. "Because it makes you look helpless," he admits. "I know you're not! I know that. I'm not insulting your fucking manly prowess or whatever, just—"

    You kiss him, and the last of the excuse gets lost, mumbled into your mouth.

    Summary

    "The traditional role of the jadebloods in the brooding caverns was... more involved than most trolls were ever told."

    You peel her hand away and kiss her palm before you lace your fingers with hers. "Okay, that was a really good ominous pause," you say. "But come on. We'll work this out. What's so 'involved' about it?"

    She tells you.

    You freak out.

    Summary

    "Whatever nasty ideas I just gave you, go for it. I'm your kinky alien sex toy for the night or whatever," and with Terezi looming over you and Karkat's big hands on you that's suddenly a seriously, intensely possible thing. You are having a vision of the future and it involves a lot of troll junk.

    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

    "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."
