"You fuckiing ASTH-HOLE!"
Sollux sends a chair flying at Eridan, hitting him soundly in the head with a (poorly-drawn) "THUNK!"
"Who elthe diid you kiill?!"
Sollux begins to flip the fuck out.
Eridan is a bit nervous at the boy's rage.
Sollux is suddenly all over him, his hands clamping firmly around Eridan's protein-chute!
Perhaps we should take a quick rewind, a-back in time.
(performs a rewinding of time)
A law of all the universes was broken.
Done by a man eager to test his power. He was on the verge of another success, but it backfired in the end.
And now, his vision is blurring, and he begins to feel different.
But, no, another form appears, giving him hope of completing the task he was going to do so easily.
It would be harder. Much more difficult. But it'd be worth it. He does not want to see what would happen if the current transformation continued for much longer.
And thus, he enters...
A WHILE LATER...
"NO! G---ET OUT!"
And with that, Eridan was unceremoniously booted from Feferi's respiteblock.
And he hates unceremonious things.
Especially when Vriska, Kanaya, and Sollux all happen to be walking by right at the same moment in time.
Which happened to be the case here.
"Ooooooooh, look at the failure we have here. At least some 8lackromey h8 is still availa8le with her..."
Vriska snickers, and as Eridan starts to walk away, trying to maintain his composure, Kanaya can't help but chuckle as well.
Sollux, however, is another story. He squints his eyes at the wandering Prince of Hope...
...and a little more later than that...
"WHERE THE FUCK IS EVERYONE?"
Terezi and Vriska laugh at this outburst, while Kanaya tries to help Karkat with the situation.
"Karkat, You Called This Arrangement Together Merely Two Minutes Ago. A Small Allowance of Patience Would Be Helpful."
"SERIOUSLY, FUCK YOU. WHERE IS GAMZEE?!"
"He Is Relaxing In His Pile Of One-Note Instruments"
Kanaya points to the horn pile, where Gamzee, sure enough, is snoozing. Equius approaches him, rather disgusted.
The Heir of Void speaks as if Gamzee can actually hear him... Though he probably could.
"D--> How can you act like this? I'm beginning to question whether I should trust you simply from b100d..."
"D--> Are you even paying attention?... I need a towel... Someone resting in a pile of horns is absolutely preposterous... I would never do such a thing in all my-"
Equius Zahhak flops forward into the pile of horns.
Vriska giggles from her success, as Gamzee pops open one eye to extract the fee-of-sleeping cost out of Equius's pocket.
Karkat starts shaking with rage. Sollux is calming him down, right as Tavros enters the room.
"uHH, hI EVERYBODY, sORRY I'M LATE."
Vriska's eye catches Tavros...
Tavros suddenly starts to stiffen up a bit...
"GOG-DAMN IT, DO ANY OF YOU KNOW WHY YOU'RE HERE?"
"We Were Waiting For You To Speak."
Vriska pulls out the chair next to her a bit, and motions Tavros to sit next to her.
He starts shaking like a maraca set on 300X-speed
Tavros approaches the empty chair next to Karkat, but his mind suddenly goes blank.
"FUCK, VRISKA. ARE YOU USING YOUR MIND-POWERS AGAIN?"
The Page of Breath suddenly does a fucking acrobatic pirouette over the table and into the chair next to Vriska.
He suddenly snaps back to attention and shivers in horror.
Vriska looks at him long enough to make him sink into his seat. Soon, only his horns are visible above the table.
Sollux and Terezi chuckle a bit, while Karkat and Kanaya...
Regardless, in comes Nepeta.
She happily purrs, and leaps into the seat next to Karkat. Karkat shies away a bit. Nepeta stretches her legs and extends her blue retractable claws.
This unnerves Karkat even further, while Equius slowly stands from the horn pile.
He rubs the side of his head and...
gets tackleslide'd by Nepeta.
"Karkat, What Again Did You Announce This Meeting For?"
"WE'RE AT THE END OF THE FUCKING LINE HERE. SOMETHING BAD IS GOING TO GO DOWN, AND WE DON'T HAVE A FLIPPING FUCK OF AN IDEA WHAT IT COULD BE."
"We can't know for suuuuuuuure if it's 8ad or not."
"THAT VOWEL EXTENSION WAS SO UNNECESSARY IT MAKES ME WANT TO PUKE."
Eridan saunters in.
"kar, wwhat issue to you havve to talk about noww?"
"YOU'RE LATE, ASSWIPE."
"Perhaps He Is Merely Timely, And The Rest Of Us Were Catastrophically Early"
"SHUT UP, KANAYA."
"SERIOUSLY, WHERE THE HELL IS FEFERI?"
"Last time I saw her was when she had 8 Eridan out in her respiteblock for asking her out... Again..."
Vriska grins evilly, as Eridan hangs his head slightly.
"i... i'm a fucking idiot..."
"YOU H4VE TH4T R1GHT! H3H3H3..."
Sollux looks a bit uneasy.
"You guyth... ii'm not thure iif Feferii iith okay..."
He suddenly flees the room. The rest of them follow.
"ii mean... Thiith iithn't liike her at all..."
Sollux is the first to arrive at Feferi's door, well before the others have even rounded the corner.
Sollux knocks on Feferi's door.
He knocks a little harder, his hands beginning to shake.
He opens the door slowly, not noticing the 8 trolls breathing into his ears from behind.
It makes a small creaking sound, and the first thing he sees is a small glimmer of violet.
Sollux's glasses fall off as his face reels back. His eyes widen.
Feferi is laying on the ground. Her googles have fallen off, revealing her shining eyes, wide open.
Just like her mouth.
The mouth that was open to scream, but silenced by the sinister object that had been pushed through her skull.
Her body lay on the floor, her torso twisted ever so slightly to the right, along with her head.
Her right hand lay on the floor, reaching out towards the door, as if calling to Sollux for help.
Help that never arrived.
The giant gash at the side of her head was visible.
As was the glimmering violet blood that slowly dripped from the wound, leaving a strange contrast to the bland, yet clean floor.
Emotions rushed at once, and yet no movement did.
She was dead.
There was no doubt. No possibility or hope of saving her life. Her life that had been filled with potential before being pulled away by the atrocity of SGrub.
The game that Sollux had introduced to them.
Sollux was the first to move, as he quickly excused himself from the room.
The rest of the trolls, now including the ever-sleepy Gamzee, just stared.
Terezi suddenly took charge of the situation, realizing what needed to be done.
She actually smiled.
"3V3RYBODY OUT! TH1S 1S 4 CR1M3 SC3N3! NO TROLL M4Y D1STURB TH3 3V1D3NC3!"
Slowly but surely, the remaining trolls filed out.
"NO W41T, ST4Y H3R3 K4RK4T..."
Her pulsating eyes disturbed Karkat, as they were deadly-in-contrast to the dead sea-troll that was lying on the floor.
"W3 H4V3 OURS3LV3'S 4 MYST3RY!"
