Chapter 1: Open Mouth
You are now KARKAT VANTAS, and you are PISSED.
This is not unusual for you, by any means. But the fact remains: you are not happy, and people need to leave you the FUCK alone about it.
Of course, they won't. They never fucking do. You could lock yourself in a steel-plated box-like apparatus in stupid human-fucking-ANTARCTICA and they would still find you. You are the leader, and it somehow became your fucking job to listen to your teammates bitch and moan about each other or some shit like that. You don't know. You don't care.
Unless it comes to redrom or blackrom, and then you're a fucking fountain of festering knowledge spewing fetid fecal matter and advice from every orifice.
They should hang a sign on your door. "Karkat Vantas: The Romance
You're a fucking prodigy.
But that doesn't mean shit right now, because you are still PISSED. This has not stopped being a thing.
You have just finished a discussion with SOLLUX CAPTOR. Oh, wait, THOLLUX CAPTOR. Stupid Sollux and his stupid lisp.

Your name is KARKAT VANTAS, and you have just pissed off the person you've been flushed for over the past few weeks. Not only that, but you gave him your fucking blessing to fill that quadrant with someone else. A very spooky someone else. God fucking damn it.
What will you do?
Chapter 2: Insert Foot
The moment in which Karkat continues to make a complete ass of himself.
Welcome to the second chapter of Hook, Line, And...!
I've got the next several chapters planned out, but there's no telling when they'll actually get written. I am a procrastinator. It is me.
Regardless, I hope you all enjoy this chapter, and look forward to the next one!
Your name is KARKAT VANTAS, and you are a SHIT-EATING GRUBFUCK.
If this were one of your shitty redrom movies, it would probably be titled, "The Moment In Time That Should Never Have Happened Because A Stupid Fucking Shit-Fuck Decided To Screw Up The Only Good Thing He Had, With Seemingly No Way Of Repairing A Damaged Relationship."
It would be so fucking terrible that they wouldn't even make a sequel.
You decide to open up Trollian and try to message Sollux.
