    Summary

    Dirk Strider is known as one of the best cargo pilots hailing from Derse. He moves cargo around the galaxies along with his trusted co-pilot: Jake English. It all seemed like a regular trip to Skaia delivering cargo when two members of a space pirate group are found on their ship. To make things worse, some kind of parasitic affliction is spreading through the systems, causing an Imperial Alternian war ship on a crash course through hyper space to force them off course and onto their prison colony moon. Can the two of them find a way out of this predicament?

    Summary

    "I feed on pain.” Jake raises a hand before Dirk can respond. “To be specific, emotional pain. But I prefer not to cause it, and so my preferred partners are those who already carry a great deal of it around.”

    Well, that’s the most fucked up thing Dirk’s heard in a while. “You want me for my trauma?”

    “Just so. Are you saying you’re not interested?”

    Summary

    Dirk blinked slowly, and he took his left hand to place it on top of mine. “You worry too much”.

    “Worry is all I have these days. Worry about death, about whether my money will last forever, about Jane and Roxy… I’ve become unbearable”.

    Dirk looked at me with an expression only he had while the skin on my cheeks trembled and my eyes went up and down his face. I felt my chest get heavy, and there it all came. First, it was the sigh, and then the crying.

    (Where Jake English receives a visit. It's as simple as that).

    Summary

    Your name is Jade Harley, and your husband died one year ago.

    In truth, you don’t know for sure if Dave Strider died. Last you heard, he went on a military mission without telling you where it was. You haven’t heard from him in a year. Over time, you simply decided to assume the worst. Your brother, Jake English, went looking for him, only to go missing. You had no hope you would see either of them again.

    That is, until your husband shows up outside your house.

    ==>

    Something is wrong with Dave following his sudden return. In an attempt to find out what happened to him, Jade and Dirk venture into a restricted military area surrounded by something called a Shimmer. No one has gone in and ever come out, until Dave. Accompanied by a goth psychologist, a cheerfully morbid archeologist, a budding biologist, a skilled veterinarian, and a soldier who lost an arm and an eye in action, they will find out what happened to their husbands. Even if it kills them.

    Summary

    John knew Terezi wouldn’t make him do anything to screw up the timeline worse, but he was a little conflicted about one of the items on the scarf. Of course, some of the stuff was probably for her own amusement, stupid jokes that she’d never get to see play out. But he had to believe that in general, she wanted things to be okay as much as he did. This request seemed… too serious to be a joke, anyways. It was just about the only thing she’d asked of him that didn’t directly involve her.
    Something about that made him nervous. She was a Seer. There was stuff she knew that he couldn’t. No matter how much it frustrated him, how much
    she frustrated him, he trusted her. He had to. Everything depended on it. Still… he didn’t like what it implied.
    “The Page must stay mortal.”

    Or: Jake wakes up on LOMAX when he knew he was meant to be on Prospit. Things are in motion, and he isn't there for them. He's stuck. Human. And there's no going back.

    Summary

    Your name is DIRK STRIDER and you are THIRTEEN YEARS OLD. You are currently seated in perhaps the last place you expected to end up this evening, a semi-private LABOR AND DELIVERY ROOM in the maternity wing of your local hospital. Beneath your legs is an uncomfortable VINYL ARMCHAIR, and on top of them is a small BLANKETED BUNDLE. This bundle contains a warm, squirmy little neonatal human who just so happens to be your brand-new BABY BROTHER. What will you do?

    Summary

    Seven years ago, Jake went out for coffee with a man named “Hal,” a simple first date that sparked a whirlwind romance and the kind of happily-ever-after marriage only found in fairytales.

    All that came crashing down one night when someone came to their door with a picture of “Hal,” asking about Dirk Strider, and Jake— realizing he’d been lied to for years— left without saying goodbye.

    Weeks in the future but not many, Dirk tries to repair whatever might be left of their relationship. But what part of his past could be so unspeakable that he’d forge a whole second identity just to escape it?

    (heavily inspired by 36 Questions, the musical podcast, but you don’t need prior knowledge of that to read the fic!)

    Summary

    A stranger is sitting casually on your couch, right in the middle—wearing old, scratched-up, ugly-ass aviators indoors, looking all cool and unruffled—like he has every right to be there. What the fuck.

    “What the fuck,” you growl, standing frozen on the threshold.
