    Summary

    “So what if I ate the cheeseburger?” Tony shouts, throwing a wrench at Loki’s head. The bastard dodges it easily as he stalks closer. “That doesn’t mean I belong to you!”

    “Oh, not to me,” Loki says lowly, a smile like honey slowly spreading its way across his face. “But with me? Surely you’ve heard of Persephone.”

    “A cheeseburger isn’t some fucking mystical pomegranate, you smirking lunatic.” It isn’t, it just isn’t. Not even close. "You aren't even Greek!" he adds, throwing another wrench which is dodged just as easily.

    Loki spreads his hands wide, posing like the showman he is. “I think you’ll find that a pomegranate symbolizes the fruit of the dead. Your cheeseburger, made of dead flesh, was topped with fruit. It’s close enough for the symbolism to bind.”

    “Ah-hah! There’s no fucking fruit on a cheeseburger,” Tony says triumphantly, finger pointing accusingly at Loki. “I fucking win, no going back to crazy town with you. I stay here in my workshop, and you fucking leave before I call the Avengers.”

    “Oh Stark,” Loki murmurs, almost affectionately. “A tomato is a berry, you ignorant fool.”

    My god, but I love this fic. I read it all the way through with a kind of squealing and toes-curling happiness that only happens when I read my favorite fics. It's hella fun and full of feels and absolutely perfect. ♥

    Summary

    Karkat Vantas does not want a pet. Hell, he has a hard enough time trying to take care of himself, his Lusus, and his hive. So why won't this purple-blooded fuzzy nightmare leave him alone? And why the hell does everyone keep insisting that he's been adopted? Trolls adopt sub-ternians, not the other way around...right?

    Summary

    Your moirail is something of a shambling disaster -- his hair is a tangled, frizzy mess, his clothes are tattered at the hems and grimy, and he could stand a wash or five himself. But it isn't, you've realized, that Gamzee doesn't want to care for himself, it's more that he doesn't know how to take care of himself well. You're not sure why, since he had access to the same schoolfeeding as everyone else, but maybe it was because he was alone too much for so long. Maybe it's hard to care, or know to care, when there's no one to fuss over you.

    Summary

    "Shaving both sides of your head at least makes the damage look symmetrical, intentional."

    Dave accidentally finding out about Tavros's trich is just the tipping point of their moirallegiance, not the center of it, but that doesn't mean he won't do whatever it takes to be there for his moirail, good days and bad. Full list of TWs in the notes.

    This is gorgeous and painful and it just... it makes me ache. I don't have trichotillomania, but I do suffer severe anxiety and something equally self-destructive like this so I can feel it and I just. This hit me in all the right feels.

    Summary

    Charles has a terrible habit of multitasking, and that is probably why he absentmindedly tells the pizza man that he loves him when hanging up.

    Then the pizza man says it back. And Charles is pretty much smitten from there.

    FABULOUS. I giggled and squeed my way through it. My only regret is that it's not longer.
