    Summary

    The lesson here, Susie thinks, is that tricking Death is tricky business. How do you outwit the personification of oblivion? Chess, obviously, won’t be the answer.

     

     

    Or: Susie plays Calvinball with Death.

    Summary

    You definitely want to encourage Equius, among other verbs. This stupid gift exchange is just forcing your hand, when you wanted more time to get to know him, figure out who he is when he's not being completely suborned by your worst successful project to date. You don't know enough of his buttons yet to be sure you're pushing the right ones.

    Summary

    "What gives?" he says then, as he shrugs his way out of the gi and you watch the changing shadows under his collarbone. "Some chump at this party still has a turtleneck on."

    "Yeah, well, some asshole around here doesn't know how to shut up and let himself be spoiled," you say. "Get in the goddamn tub, Strider."

    Summary

    Squirrels, of course, spoke the common hedgerow language of all animals, though with considerably more profanity than most. But despite the gifts of discovered caches and general friendliness or indifference on the part of the rabbits, the down’s squirrels were, quite frankly, pests. They pelted the rabbits with nuts when they went out to silflay. “Yah, groundlings!” they jeered, running down the trunks to shake their tails at their victims before racing back up. “Can’t climb tree, can’t jump-fly, yah!” and off they would go, chasing through the limbs and quarreling amongst themselves all the way.

    One of Hazel’s favorite things about living on Watership Down was that there were so few trees, and therefore, so few squirrels.

    Summary

    "...understand something unexpected might have happened, but in most circumstances he would still be able to find a minute to text us a warning! This is surprisingly inconsiderate."

    Karkat flicks a glance up the body under him, wedged on its back against the wall, just under the open window. He wants to arch an eyebrow, make a face that says, your friends are assholes behind your back, wow, you guys really did find each other. Kankri's arm is still thrown across his eyes, his face turned, tucked defensively into the crook of his own elbow. His mouth opens onto a silent moan.

    --
    theunvanquishedzims asked: Karkat ♠ Kankri, the first time they were both totally quiet in each other's presence.

    You were almost certain he was waiting for a chance to gloat and you were satisfied with never giving him one, even if it meant occasionally having to leave his message unanswered for a day while you got around to putting his strategy into action. You'd do a lot of things but you weren’t going to lie.

    About your progress in a video game.

    To a stranger on the internet.

    You have more dignity than that.
