    Summary

    John Egbert is Crosswind, defender of Seattle.
    Dave Strider is Flashstep, defender of Houston.
    Rose Lalonde is The Sorceress, defender of New York.
    Jade Harley is a girl living alone on an island in the middle of the ocean.

    When the sinister criminals known as the Midnight Crew arrive in Seattle, John has to figure out what they're doing there before their turf war with a rival gang destroys his city. Meanwhile, Dave battles depression as his life gets turned upside down in some of the worst - and best - ways possible. Rose and Jade seem stable, but will that last? And who are the people who seem to be following the kids around? What's their deal? And just who the hell is the Jack of Hearts?

    The winds of change are blowing. Something is going on, and no one really knows what's going to happen; they just hope they'll live long enough to find out.

    Summary

    Problem Sleuth is up to his eyeballs in missing persons, Ace Dick is up to his eyeballs in the hijinks of the increasingly powerful Midnight Crew, and Pickle Inspector is up to his eyeballs in a teleporting mansion outside of town. Poorly constructed metaphor aside, everyone's eyeballs are pretty tired. But there's no rest for the weary, as once the missing persons start to correlate with the mansion's peculiar residents, the city's underbelly only becomes more convoluted.

    Summary

    Matchsticks is furious with himself. He’s also angry with Itchy, but if he’s really honest, he’s the most angry with himself for all of this. None of this would be happening if he hadn’t ended up head over heels for Quarters. And none of this would be happening if he’d paid more attention when Doze let it slip that Itchy was showing an interest in photography. He hadn’t paid any attention to that little tidbit at all, assuming Itchy was probably just planning on making porn for himself.

    That wasn’t entirely untrue. He did make porn. It’s just unfortunate that apparently it featured Quarters and Matchsticks, taken through a crack in their hotel room window.

    Summary

    Your name is Calico Stubs. You belong to a race of alien species called the Felakits. Your kind my look like a humanoid cross between lizard and cat. But you be damned if some chump waves a little feathered toy in front of your face. And calls you a "good kitty".
    No.
    You and your people worked to hard to be just ridiculed. Your plant Chimera, it has faced to much. To many civil wars, and the great wars. Many corrupted leaders on your planet telling "their people" that this was the "final" stand. Albeit times have changed since "The Final Great War" with nation's finally working together "for peace". And despite being different races, Felakits of many diversities have seemingly forgotten the endless clash of warfare. "Were a 'civilized' species" cry out the international council. "We've changed!" They say once more to any outside civilization.

    Because in the end trading pacts and peace treaties don't matter. Profit only matters.

    That's were your Boss comes in.
    They want to take a piece of this Midnight City.
    If striking up this deal will make your boss happy. Then damn well your going to get the job done.

    Summary

    This is an old fic that I dug up while awaiting the end of the gigapause. I decided to post it since right after the series ended everyone was musing over the nostalgia of their early fanworks. Here's mine. It is set from the Great Cliffhanger of 2013 upd8.

    After leaving Vriska's pirate crew behind, Tavros, Sollux, Nepeta, and Feferi reach the inner border of the furthest ring. They realize that it borders the Alpha session where everyone has finally come together. Being the only one with any life left in him, Sollux is sent into the grasping tendrils of its insipisphere so that he can help his friends' session for once be successful. Blind, alone, defenseless, and no longer used to the living, breathing world, Sol can do no help but instead stumble through the insanity that Aranea and Her Imperious Condescension have left in their wake whilst only hoping to make allies powerful enough to help the session succeed once and for all and prevent the timeline from becoming a doomed one.

    Summary

    There were half a dozen cheap motels scattered around the perimeter of Midnight City, aimed primarily at travellers and new arrivals to the city. They were shabby, unkempt and most importantly, cheap. They also had the unintentional benefit of being private places where nobody met each other's eyes and no community popped up. People didn't learn anybody's name and nobody ever came knocking to see if you wanted to go to fucking brunch together.

    That made them the ideal location for an illicit romantic rendezvous.

    Summary

    “... Jesus fuck Nitram, what the fuck happened to you?” Tavros gave him a bitter smile, placing his mug on a small, somewhat charred table. “We came, to the Zone, Karkat. It uh, changes everything, if you hadn't, realised already.” Karkat said nothing, and took a sip of his tea, almost grimacing at the bitterness.

    Twelve Stalkers, who once went upon their divergent paths, have reconvened slowly when one of the missing members resurfaces alive and well (for some definition of the word). When a path to the fabled Pripyat comes to light, they will be forced to work together once more if they want to have any chance of standing against the brewing storm on the horizon. Pripyat holds many secrets, and there are those who would stop at nothing to obtain them.

    Summary

    Stitch saw everything and nothing at the same time. From the brush of fingers over an effigy, the battered old tailor could see pain and torture and all the physical pain inflicted on any Felt member. All too often, the other members of the Felt came to him with their problems, especially one in particular...

    Then again, Die has always been a strange one to Stitch...
