  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

    Karkat Vantas always accepted the fact that he was not going to live past nine sweeps. It was just a certainty of his sad, miserable life. At least, that was until his friends found out and decided to hatch a plan to get him out of the Alternian empire. A plan that actually worked.

    Now, he was stranded on an alien planet, at the mercy of some strange creature that was either trying to help him or going about some freaky ritual of flirting with your food before you eat it.

    Also, aliens have sunglasses.

    He was better off dying on Alternia, wasn't he?

    Summary

    To make a tragedy, you break something beautiful and frame the pieces. To make a victory, you break something mighty and rebuild it piece by piece. To make a life, you glue the pieces together and hope for the best. Kurama's still getting the hang of this ‘human’ thing, but given that he’s 30 years back in time with catastrophes to prevent and a blond brat to save, he’ll have to figure things out on the fly. Luckily, living with Naruto's been good for his ability to improvise, if nothing else.

    Summary

    Years ago, the Midnight Crew were the terror of the Eastern Seaboard. It wasn't an easy life, being English's archenemies, with all the other gangs on their asses half the time and the Feds the other half, but Droog wouldn't have traded it for anything in the god damn world.

    Then they got old, and they had kids relying on them.

    Nowadays things are pretty quiet, most of the time. English has been dead for years, the Felt cut down in the last gang war, all but the ones who were civilized enough to make a peace with. Crime made them rich enough to live out their days, and they've squirreled themselves and their money and their kids away in Middle America where the Feds will never find them. Not that easy, of course. A life of crime and violence doesn't really prepare you for raising kids, or for how exactly to deal with people who don't think you deserve to exist when you can't hit back without drawing attention to yourselves.

    But all things considered, it's a pretty good life.

    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>
