    Summary

    “Well?” he prompts you incredulously. “I like to think I'm an all around nice guy, why doesn't he want me?

    His body language sets off alarms in your head—he's past the point where he'd fall into a depressed slump. If anything, his movements are sharper, his fangs more visible with each word, his fins flared and bristling. He's a walking time bomb, and you have a horrible feeling that you're going to be the one that has to defuse him.

    Summary

    You don’t remember the last time you cried like this. You bawl until you’re hoarse and shaking and you don’t dare lift your head because you are a fucking mess. Whoever it is—who is it, damnit?—thrums low in their squawkblister and holds you, and you press your ear to their chest and let the sound fill up your head. It’s been so long since anyone hugged you, you can barely believe it’s even happening; you don’t want to move in fear that it will stop.

    Summary

    'You stumble into a room, slap a palm against the button that will seal the door, and slump in the nearest corner. It’s dark here, lit only with green computer lights, empty save for some specimen tubes and some consoles, but you aren’t comforted. This isn’t a hiding spot so much as it is a place to rest until he finds you.

    You’re the last, and that’s the most terrifying thought of all.' 

    A Veilstuck fic in which Karkat decides to mercy cull his friends before Jack Noir can get to them first.

    Summary

    Once upon a time Vastderp got asked "What do you think would happen if A Sailorman's Hymn hadn't ended the way it did?" His reply went along the lines of "I DUNNO, BUT I'D LOVE IT IF SOMEBODY WROTE IT."

    So that's what I'm doing.

    For context's sake, this occurs shortly after chapter eight.

    Huge, huge thanks to mercurialMalcontent and ceruleanCynic for being awesome beta readers.

    Summary

    You are sleeping off an unplanned encounter with your kismesis—the lispy little fuck liked to use his teeth; you have bruises and bite marks everywhere—when the sensation of the sopor rising in your recupracoon rouses you enough to register that someone has climbed in with you. You snap awake, already reaching for where your sickle hangs on the wall, but then you're wrapped up in a pair of lanky arms, your face squished against a familiar cool chest, and you growl into Gamzee's shoulder as he proceeds to cling to you like you're his favorite grubtoy.

    “This is the third time this week, faceache.” you mutter.

    Summary

    All you need to do is squeeze one last $2.45 out of this hellhole. You sit there, your chin propped in your hands as you implore for that last bit of change.

    “Just a few quarters, man? I’m so motherfucking close, you have no idea.”

    You bite your tongue. Someday you’ll get out of the habit of blurting out the MF word whenever it wants you to.
