    Summary

    What does the word God mean? What do these beings think of mortals? What about petty insects, do they believe normal mortals gods? What about these insect's gods, are they these mortal's equals? Or are they mortal's superiors? What about a god-like insect? Do they become lesser than a mortal? Or are they a god, in everything but name?

    (Previously called Bugs Bugs and More Bugs, with a more goofy summary)

    Summary

    The Pale King, God of mind and knowledge, King of Hallownest, was first and foremost a scientist and an engineer.

    It would be foolish to just get one Vessel from the Abyss for his plan to seal the Radiance

    What if the first one broke?

    Maybe he'd just get one more from the Abyss, oh and there's another one, and another one, and another one...

    Summary

    It’s the 1950s and young Ghost and Hollow are living their best life in Hallownest, Ireland. Their daily routine consists of a gentle rotation of schoolwork, playtime, and eating street food sold on Pilgrim’s Way. And they have little to no concern about the faeries that exist just one realm over.

    However, when their friend Monomon and her associates, Joni and the Godseeker, begin to theorize the children’s mother, the White Lady, may be a selkie, a mythical seal faerie, all bets are off. Ghost and Hollow discover a family secret and set off to make some sense of it, winding up in the Celtic Otherworld, the Tír na nÓg, where their survival will be dependent on the aos sí around them.

    Summary

    As their new family steadily grows, including a strange adopted child with bat wings and another person who has his eye on Quirrel, the danger for everyone only grows worse, and they wonder just how far they can bend before they break.

    Summary

    In one world, a ghost lingers.

    It is dragged down by grief, by the weight of everyone that it has lost. It is a lonely god at the peak of the Pantheons, raining void down onto the golden glory of Godhome.

    In this world, it has nothing left to do. A ghost without a purpose should not exist, and yet here it remains. It wishes for another way out of this limbo, this endless cycle of pain.

    And so it gives up its godhood, dissolving into essence and broken dreams.

     

    ~~~

     

    In another world, Ghost’s eyes open.

    In this world, they’re only twelve, with a small fluff of dusty-blond hair and wide, midnight blue eyes dark as the deep Caribbeans.

    They’re sitting in the backseat of an SUV, strapped in a seatbelt, eyes half lidded as they listen to their siblings bicker in the background. At their mother’s chiding tone, Hornet grumbles in complaint, jabbing a finger at the amused smirk on Hollow’s face.

    It fills Ghost with a feeling of comfort and belonging they haven’t felt in… Forever, actually.

    Ghost closes their eyes with a sleepy smile, content.

    (But of course it can’t be that easy.)

    Summary

    There is an Intruder in the White Palace. Time for the Princess-Protector of Hallownest to shine!

    i.e. Baby Hornet play-hunting Greenpath Vessel while the White Lady watches her children play.

    Alternate version of chapters 3 to 6 of Responsible Practices in Engineering (a Vessel) .
    Can be read as a standalone since it's basically just a happier version of Greenpath Vessel's fate.

    Summary

    The Infection has faded from Hallownest.

    The Little Ghost never went to the Black Egg, never killed the Dreamers.

    As Hallownest starts to come alive again, there's only one way to go: up.

    Summary

    Even though Ghost has found their footing again and gained control over the Abyss, and even if they can now call Quirrel their boyfriend, They still need to find a new oracle, and Quirrel still needs to finish his thesis, and The Pale King needs to become a better person, and Monomon is seeking for more chaos, and someone should probably go and check up on Unn already...

    This is the second part to We are But Dust and Shadows. Mostly will not make sense without reading that one, but I can't tell you what to do, so go ahead.

    Summary

    Hornet never thought she could call the days of the infection ‘simple’, but her siblings so loved to complicate things, didn’t they? Of course, she’d never have it any other way. Even if it did mean she was a child again.

    (In a desperate attempt to escape defeat, the Radiance tries to flee through time itself. Ghost follows, taking Hornet along for the ride. But they can’t very well leave Hollow behind either now, can they?

    In which Hollow causes an international incident, Hornet wants to throttle someone, and Ghost discovers that punching the Pale King is way better when he’s actually alive.)

    Summary

    A way for me to vent out all of those creative little ideas of a Hollow Knight High School AU and stuff. It's mostly some slice of life tidbits that go in chronological order.

    (Summary will be added later, I'm too lazy to make one now.)

    (Writing quality may differ between chapters, might update monthly.)

    Summary

    A series of silly drabbles, from explain Wyrm biology, to taking bets about whether or not PK has hips, you’ll find lots of little ideas here

     

    Fun fact: All of the chapters are written really late at night!
