    Summary

    In a universe with infinite possibilities, who's to say there wasn't a story that branched off from a narrative of dubious canonicity? During Dirk's funeral, Karkat and Dave share a moment - and this time it isn't interrupted.

    Summary

    Summary

    “I know, but it’s not—just that. I want to be able to trust you to tell me when you’re hurt, when you need me to be careful. And I just feel like—” You spread your hands helplessly. “You don’t know how to do that. You get hurt and unless you’re bleeding to death it’s just like, ‘oh, Karkat, it’s fine’ and ‘oh, Karkat, don’t worry about it, it’s just a bruise, just a scrape, just a cut, it doesn’t matter.’ And it does. It does matter, Dave. I want to know when you’re hurt. I want to know about the bruises and scrapes and cuts, not just the fucking—impalings, or disembowelings. The little hurts are just important to me as the big ones."

    Beside you, Dave is quiet—the arm around your waist is tense. When you glance at him, he won’t meet your eyes. He must be yearning for his shades. “I—Karkat.” He lets out a soft breath. “Shit, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to make you feel like I didn’t trust you. I do. I just—oh, boy. Are we having a therapy session right now? Are we doing this? For realsies?”

    Summary

    When Dave decides on impulse to leave his life in Houston behind, he runs away to New York City to stay with his sister. To get him back on his feet, she sets him up as a receptionist at a tattoo parlor, where he's about eighty percent sure the head artist (who happens to also be his boss) hates his guts.

    He's wrong.
