    Summary

    A gamebreaking glitch tore the game session to shreds, right before they reached the end. Dirk Strider was already dead at the time. Temporarily. Which left him to revive in the aftermath. As the Prince of Heart, he doesn't have much experience putting souls back together, only breaking them, but at this point he seems to be the only one who even knows shit is broken.

    He's the last person who'd trust himself with this. Not when he's out of time, out of place, and over his head being responsible for a little brother, a life, and a body his conveniently dead asshole of a splinterself already, thoroughly fucked up.

    AKA: A game crash creates an unholy mashup of who the hell knows how many sburb sessions, and Dirk-as-Bro attempts to figure out wtf happened and how to fix shit for the brother who fears him, and the friends who don’t remember him. Because that’s what he does. But no Dirk has ever excelled when truly alone. Good thing he isn’t, he just needs to learn how to accept the help.

    Summary

    John Egbert, Rose Lalonde, Dave Strider, and Jade Harley have been best friends for as long as they can remember. Their families get together twice a year, for two weeks as a reunion. They’ve been a constant in each other’s lives.

    It’s no secret to any of them Dave’s home life is shitty. His guardian is no longer invited to the reunions, and for a long time it has only been him and his older brother, Dirk.

    Until about seven years ago, when Dirk was murdered in an alleyway for unknown reasons when he was 12.

    And Dave’s home life just fell apart after that, his only escape being school and the four weeks in total he’s with his friends.

    However, this seventh anniversary seems to have gotten worse, and he’s no longer answering his friends messages.

    To say it’s worrying would be an understatement.

    Summary

    You’ve been an outsider type your whole life, and you don’t really care that you are. Of course, it doesn’t matter when none of your peers are interested in hanging out with you in the first place. Besides, who’s supposed to be the unapproachable one between you and Roxy if not you? It doesn’t matter that your loneliness curls its way inside of you, smothering you deep down inside of you until really there’s nothing there but the loneliness and your own sense of superiority. It doesn’t matter that nobody is really around to tell you whether or not the way that you notice the flex and stretch of the other guys in your gym class is normal for a boy of your age and inclination. Not that it matters though, of course it doesn’t. You’ve graduated past the need for insecurities like that, or, at least, that’s what you tell yourself.

     

    Then, you meet Jake.

     

    Jake English is 5’8 to your 5’10, he’s compact muscle and old timey phrases and the plushest lips you’ve ever seen. Damn does he have an ass, too. It’s firm and his thighs are strong and God you’re staring. You’re staring at him and Dirk it is 10am you should not be being like this so god damn early in the morning.

    Summary

    He seemed different in that light. He still had an air of childish excitement, giddiness at showing his new friend his secret little pleasures, but there was still that old sadness that showed through. This beautiful sight was fleeting, and the hardships would always be back come morning. But he smiled kindly anyways, gesturing to the pillows. "Join me?"

    Summary

    Dave had a penchant for weird things happening to him, and Karkat always seemed to get stuck with the people he hated most. But finding out they were both demigods? That was the final straw. Both boys were convinced that if the gods did exist, they must really hate their kids.

    Camp Half-Blood sent out a lot of quests, but Jade knew hers was special. She'd been at camp for less than a year, and she'd already gotten a quest to rescue two unknown demigods from their fate. The only downside was her questing buddies: the Crocs-wearing, chalk-eating camp weirdo Terezi Pyrope, and the "totally not jealous that Jade got a quest instead of him" Tavros Nitram. But no matter what, Jade wouldn't fail. She'd never hear the end of it from her friends if she did.

    Summary

    Karkat is an exchange student moving to Earth to avoid being culled. That would be fine if the universe didn’t hate Karkat. He gets stuck living with Dave Strider, an asshole Karkat swears is the biggest douchebag this side of paradox space. There is no way in hell they would ever get along. Right?

    Summary

    You're not quite sure what your name is anymore, it's been a while since you've had to use it. But you go by T1, and you have your friends, T2 and sort of T3 to go and help you out in keeping sane in this stupid facility.

    You don't really know what you want, since you know it's futile to get out of this place but... maybe a friend would be a great change of pace. The people who've been in the cell with you always pass away and never return after the experiments that are held on them. You suppose you're the lucky one, but...

    That's not really how you feel, is it?

    Summary

    From an outside perspective, Hogwarts was everything that Dave had ever wanted... Until he realized that he literally didn't know anything about magic. At least he got the chance to meet his friends and reconnect with his estranged brother, for better or for worse. While the journey of becoming the 'dopest wizard ever' was going to be much easier said than done, he always had other shit to focus on. Because fuck it, why not become the best goddamn seeker the school had ever seen?

    Too bad Dirk Strider's pre-existing reputation loomed over him since the second he arrived at Hogwarts. Hopefully Karkat Vantas, his new friend and trusty quidditch partner, would give him the boost he needed to catch up to his brother.

    Though despite Dave's desperate attempts to ignore them, spending all of his time with Karkat was resulting in a lot of mixed feelings. Feelings he didn't quite know how to deal with.

    Fuck... he was so screwed.

    Summary

    Dave invites Karkat over to his room in the meteor to ask each other a series of 36 questions that he found on the internet. The thing is, these questions get even more personal as they progress, and in the end they're supposed to make the participants fall in love with each other. Neither believes they'll work, but it's a way to pass time to them.

    ---

    This is based on the "36 questions that lead to love" that inspired the podcast/musical titled 36 Questions. I recommend the musical to those who enjoy them, since it's a good listen.

    Also, this work is like 95% dialogue. I do describe important bits (or what I deem important) but I like to think that what they're doing is up to the reader!

    Summary

    When he woke up the next morning, it was still dark in the room, even though when John squinted at the alarm clock, it read that it was past 2 pm. He awoke cuddling into Dave, who looked as if he hadn't moved all night. He knew if he moved Dave would wake up, so he didn't bother. It may have been a little too much out of best friend territory, but he listened to Dave’s heartbeat and took in the scent he always had. He smelled like apples, cinnamon, and Old Spice deodorant. There was something else too, something inexplicably Dave Scented, his natural musk that John loved, and okay maybe he was a little gay.

    Summary

    John’s world came to a brutal awakening when his father died. He’s been raised into a world he desperately wanted to be a part of, where he could see where his father went on those hunting trips. Struggling to make sense of the world, his unusual education, his purpose in life, he stumbles into the one person that may understand.

    Dave’s world was taken away from him when he was killed. He’s forced into a world he doesn’t want to be a part of as he’s turned into a vampire and trained only in how to kill and feed. Failing to integrate into this violent world, he collides with the one person who he wants to understand.

    Both men are pushed together for a road trip and a suicide mission that neither of them particularly wanted.
