  1. Summary

    Secrets taken forcibly to the grave, knives and guns glinting in dark places, things best left buried lurking beneath the concrete. Dozens of eyes peering into dozens of dark places, encountering things they will never be able to prepare for or fully comprehend. Nobody in Seattle is safe, from foolish children to old monsters, and choices will be made between the clinging dark and the blinding fire.

    A series of short works, loosely if at all connected, chronicling the myriad lives of individuals in and around the city of Seattle who stumble into things, places, and people that they'd have been better off not knowing about.

    Summary

    The Sufferer’s coup was a resounding failure. The Summoner’s, through freak chance, was a bloody and hard-won success. Hemo-discrimination is illegal, now, but old grudges die hard and the higher your blood the worse your chances of making it in the world. The classes that used to be ‘highbloods’ often fall through the cracks, and find work wherever they can get it.

    A story about a "concupiscent hire" walking Alternian streets under the rule of his Imperial Humility, the upheaval of an empire, and the whims of pure serendipity. (tumblr tag: A Heavy Heart>

    Summary

    "Aw, but you need me alive, don't you? Or you'd get in trouble. You're already in trouble, aren’t you?" He grins mirthlessly, talking fast. “How much trouble are you in? You weren’t supposed to sample the goods, were you? You’re gonna get a spanking, aren’t you. A big clown-shaped reprimand. You’re gonna scream because of me. You’re fucked.”

    Unfortunately, you don't fancy your brother's suggestion on how to break the news to John...
    There's no other way out of it, you're going to have to just tell him.

    Summary

    The Kaiju - or Horrorterrors, as the trolls call them - first invaded Earth through a transdimensional rift at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. Serving the Condesce in her quest to add Earth to the Alternian Empire, these monsters have terrorized humanity for twelve years. With the help of rebel troll factions and the adaptation of Alternian mind integration technology - The Drift - the Interspecies Defense Program has fought back as the last line of defense between the Kaiju and Earth.

    Karkat Vantas was a Jaeger pilot, fought for freedom in the Assault on the Breach that brought trolls to Earth. The loss of his co-pilot left him bitter and full of rage, but desperate times have lead to him being recruited to join the fray once more.

    Dave Strider is the best and brightest the Interspec program has to offer. Jaeger Restoration Project Head, highest simulation score on record, and younger brother of the Deputy Marshal - except he's not allowed in a Jaeger.

    Nobody expects them to be Drift Compatible.

     

    If I lose everything in the fire, I'm sending all my love to you...
