    Summary

    In which Mumbo crosses several towns, learns some creative methods of self-defense, fights some monsters, sees things no human is meant to have seen, befriends a stranger, steals multiple cars, has inconvenient moral scruples, grows increasingly terrified of his own culpability in the apocalypse, grows a spine, blows up at least one building, accidentally prevents a murder, and attempts to find his best friend in the futile but ever-burning hope the man’s still alive.

    He has to say, he’s so exhausted and terrified that he thinks he might just be mad?

    (OR: the one where, after most of humanity turns into a series of terrifying monsters, Mumbo decides he’s going to risk his life on an apocalypse road trip to try to find out if Grian is alive. Things, as you might imagine, devolve from there.)

    Summary

    Life animals. Nature animals. The imaginary chimera. And a forgotten enemy.

    The whale’s real message had nothing to do with fish meat. It’s what the world needed - but Yafya wasn’t ready.

    Now the number of the missing grows day by day, leadership falls silent, and Legosi needs to know the truth of the strangeness that follows him, whether he’s ready or not.

    Legosi has long had one foot in the door. Gouhin needs him all the way inside.

    Summary

    "You're rutting?"

    Dumb question. Obvious answer. Grian asks anyway, and Scar's mouth becomes all teeth, blunt, but shining in the dim light. His effort to keep his tone light is waning, but valiant.

    "Not yet. Great time for you to walk that lovely everything-you've-got-going-on right back up those stairs before I do something regrettable."

    Rut's rougher than heat. Scar, to make matters worse, is red. He's definitely got something right prefacing anything smelling like that, especially at the start, with a warning. Here's the thing, though. Scar's helped Grian with his heat, and named a llama Pizza, and has dark brown hair falling into his face and is chiseled like a greek statue and smells like heaven in hell, looking worried out of his mind beneath the pretty red dusting his cheeks. Grian steps down the stairs and approaches Scar, making to grab his shoulders as if to drag Scar with him.

    "Come on, we're not doing this down in the mines."

    Summary

    Set in Last Life (3rd life S2) in episode 4 when Grian drops down to red life for the first time.
    Loosely inspired by the 'there's a way we could still be friends' scene between Grian and Mumbo. Of course I watched that and the little hamster wheels in my brain started turning like 'What if he'd really gone for Mumbo?' and then we spiraled from there. I got inspired as well by the scene before that, where he shows up to threaten Scar, and as well by another fic I read with a similar concept that I really liked, which I will tag.

    Basically a very fucked up dark!Grian story. It will contain explicit depictions of noncon, dubcon, violence, suicide, rape aftermath, discussion of more extreme violence and major character death, and temporary character death involving respawn mechanics. I've gotten more specific in the tags, so check those if there's any chance you might be triggered.
    FIC BASED ON MINECRAFT SKINS AND PERSONAS, IN MY HOUSE WE DON'T SHIP REAL PEOPLE
