    Summary

    Secrets can only get held in so much until they erupt into shades of red.
    -
    Dave is a young greaser living in poverty with an abusive, older Bro, whose hand is both heavy with liquor and punches. A heat of the moment decision that destroys Dave's world leaves him with two options: remain in his hometown and ultimately be reduced to death, or leave with nothing and start anew. Dave's path takes him to Hollywood then, allowing his world to now flourish with an underground scene of people like him that he'd never before imagined, and along with it, a male from his distant past who seems like the perfect happy ending.

    Summary

    There were two kinds of trolls who went to Earth: rich shitheads with too much money and free time, and desperate assholes who couldn’t survive on Alternia, even with the best efforts of the young Condesce. Karkat hated the planet almost immediately, but with his home planet too dangerous for mutants, he really didn’t have any choice but to hide out on this weird little diurnal planet. At least he’d be safe. Or so he thought, right before blundering his way into an accidental friendship with the son of an anti-troll terrorist.

    Slow burn, shifting perspectives; romance really isn't the focus here but it'll still play a significant part; extra content warnings will be posted with each relevant chapter.
