  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

    Ok so everyone knows Dave and Dirk had a long amazing talk that presumably ended with Dave asking him for advice on the Being Not Straight stuff. My problem is, Dave also spent three years with his gloriously gay twin sister on a fucking space rock while he was right in the middle of coming to terms with all this stuff. So I wrote this mostly to reconcile the gap I think exists there, with a bunch of other Dave centric stuff thrown in with it.

    Summary

    Suddenly a lot of things made a ton of sense to Dave as he stared at his reflection in the mirror. Things like the time that Rose wore elbow gloves with every outfit for a week after a date with Kanaya. Things like the secretive smile Rose had flashed her troll girlfriend when Dave spotted green flecks of ink (paint?) on her arm and asked if she’d been getting artsy or dyeing eggs in a weird craving for Easter traditions. Things like the way Kanaya had squirmed uncomfortably and flushed green when he’d asked and then suddenly there was lesbian eyesex happening in the room making Dave flee the room. There were some things he just did not want to see or think about and his sort of sister having any sort of sex was very high on that list.

    What he could see in the mirror was pretty high up on that list too.

    Summary

    You're just trying to get home, have a peaceful trip, stay as calm as a troll like you can until you get back to your moirail. All that shit. You didn't expect to make any lasting connections on the train, especially ones that live in your area. You definitely didn't expect to meet anyone quite like Dave Strider. Apparently the universe likes to prove you wrong.

    Somehow after that train ride, he fuses himself into your life. Another stubborn fucking barnacle with an uncanny ability to inconvenience you at every possible moment. Even while sleeping. But somehow, despite all the trouble, you still feel like he has the potential to make your life infuriatingly better. And you definitely can't act on it or let him know. Definitely.

    Summary

    Terezi Pyrope is a Neophyte Legislacerator looking to lease an administrative assistant. She was not expecting to find Dave Strider, a secretarial asset with a sense of integrity as strong as her own.

    Dave Strider is a secretarial asset with "personality problems" that would have gotten him culled if not for his otherwise exemplary administrative abilities. He finds himself drawn into the quadrants of the would-be social reformer who leased him. He finds he is surprisingly Okay with this.

    Both their lives become interesting (in the curse sense) when the Heiress retains Pyrope and her team.
