E.S.C.A.P.E. Chapter 22.
It was a dead end, with two more hallways branching out in opposite directions. I looked both ways, trying to figure out which way to go. They were identical meaning they were both dark, long, and dusty.
Everything was like that here. Dark and dusty. And cold. Yes, everything here was very cold. I wondered if I could freeze to death in a place like this. There wasn't any ice anywhere, not from what I could see. So I doubt I could freeze. But there could be some sort of damage, maybe. Or maybe I was just getting paranoid.
I wasn't sure if I wanted to find more Foeds or not. Having scared the first one away, I felt weak and stupid childish, almost. How could I mess that up so quickly? I had to be the biggest freak this side of the multiverse.
Which didn't surprise me really. After a

I want her dead.
I can't handle her.
I can't handle the hate.
I breathe water.
She breathes air.
I swim in the ocean.
She walks on land.
I am majestic.
She's a spider.
I gave her my heart.
She gave me the finger.
I feel like handing her a bouquet of flowers.
I feel like stabbing her in the stomach.
I want to kiss her.
I want to kill her.
I want her in my arms.
I want her corpse in front of me.
Oh, troll romance.
You wear me down so much.
Keep my loved ones afar from my poor heart.
I have others to love.
But she's the one I'll always, always hate.
I love her.
I hate her.

Precious and Fragile ThingsEridan stared at the other male in silence. He was just standing there, wearing Nepeta's hat and her Moirail's dark glasses. There was blood in that unmistakable green shade splattered all across the juggling club that he held. The high-blooded land-dweller said nothing, and Eridan did not break the silence.

Nepeta's blood was on Gamzee's hands, more literally than figuratively. A few quick thoughts along a clinically logical track told him that Gamzee had likely killed Equius to get to her. The three highest on the hemospectrum that were still alive were gathered in one place, at least two of them having killed at least two other people.
Eridan had killed the Empress. Gamzee had killed Equius. Vriska was staring at Gamzee as he approached her and Eridan. Eridan had killed Kanaya. Gamzee had killed Nepeta. This left only Terezi unaccounted for out of the eight highest-ranking trolls in the hemospectrum on this entire glubforsaken rock.

The world spun a little bit. Everything froze and Nepeta's feet merged with the wooden floor of the cabin room. She was cold, she was sweating, she didn't move, she was shaking up a storm. Her lips tried to part to make words but no sound came forth.
Her reaction was, apparently, just what Eridan was after. He gave a small smirk, looking her up and down, then turned on his heel and shut the door behind him and the sound of his boots hitting the floor was what ended bringing Nepeta back to reality, because she dashed to the door the minute the sea-dweller shut it.
"Hey!" She called, grabbing at the doorknob that wouldn't bulge and twisting it violently. "W-What?! L-Let me out!"
She couldn't even bring herself to be angry. She was too confused. It was if she didn't fully grasp the situation she was in, but what confused her the most was how quickly the transition between

I wish you hadn't left.
I wish we could be together.
I want to be with you again. I want to run my hands through your hair, I want to hold you close, I want to hug you, I want to smell your unique scent, I want you.
I want to see your smile again. I want to hear your laugh. I want to feel your hand curled around mine again.
Sometimes I find myself lying in bed when I should be doing other things, and I'm thinking about you. And there are tears coming out of my eyes, and I'm sobbing, but I don't realize until an hour later. The tears aren't the same as when you were here. When you were here I would find myself crying out of happiness. But now I can't move on.
I wish you weren't.
I'm sorry I couldn't stop it.
I'm sorry I didn't help.
I'm sorry I didn't do anything. I tried. But apparently not hard enough.
I just wish you were here again. Just for one more day. I want to hold you close, and tell you how much I love you, and just be near you. I want

And you can smell him coming from a mile away, your Mister Grumpy Gills. It's taken a while, but a fierce predator is both cunning and determined and you could even say that you've reeled him in.
Earlier you told that one to Sollux. He took his glasses off just to put them back on and say "Yeahhhh," really dully. It may've been sarcasm. You can't really tell with Sollux. But it makes you wonder about your pun skills. Your fish pun skills anyway, because your cat pun skills are mind-blowing. But, that's not the point.
The point is, Eridan. Who is so cute!
It's taken a while to get him to be less clammed up all the time (see? You're getting better at this). It's taken a bit of coaxing and working with his high and mighty personality, but you've done it. You knew you had succeeded when Terezi went up to him to sniff him and exclaim, "Well, I'll be damned! You smell like less of a fish today. You actually smell like lime and cats. Huh!"

I woke up hazily. The world was dark for a while, until my eyes adjusted and shapes formed and black faded to gray. I looked around, trying to figure out where I was. I didn't quite remember anything, just waking up. Before I examined my surroundings, I tried to recall something from my past. I didn't remember a thing.
I turned my head and tried to recognize the shapes around me. The room was sparse, with a few piles of random gadgets around the walls. I sat up on the metal table I was on, and continued to search with my eyes. In one corner stood a large metal contraption that appeared to be some sort of power generator. It didn't seem to be on. It was huge, though. Maybe around seven feet tall. There was a screen on its side, with a crack running through it. It seemed as though I wasn't the first person to be in this room and someone before me had been angry.
In another corner, th

The first time Eridan talks to Nepeta, it is out of boredom, desperateness, and with a dash of spite. His fingers poise over the correct keys to log into Trollian, then pull away with uncertainty too many times to count. He grumbles to himself about how much he hates things: how much he hates this guest computer, how much he hates the humans, how much he hates magic, and for a moment you'd think he was a taller, ironic version of Karkat.
Than that desperate part kicks in, and he logs in, typing as fast as he fucking can so he doesn't have time to stop himself.
He doesn't log on solely to talk to Nepeta. He logs on because he's lonely, and he's looking for people who aren't busy. He scans the list of trolls who are online, hoping to spot someone he can get a good squeeze out of. Feferi's not online but Sollux is, and he is of good mind to finally confront the dual-horned bastard. He'd like nothing more than to share some blackrom with the lowblood

That green. That dull shade of almost-yellow-green. It was the color of her eyes, the color of the symbol on her shirt, the color of her coat, the color of her room, the color of her blood. She embraced it. It was her favorite color.
Others would not be so ready to embrace it, though. Depending on what their color was, at least. Depending on the person, she guessed.
Every now and again, someone blue, or indigo and though it was rare, someone just a different shade of green would make some sort of offhanded remark about her green. And on some days, it would get to her. On some days, she would look at her mirror and be mad. Few things made her mad.
It was extremely lucky for Nepeta, then, so she was told, that she had Equius. With his blood all blue and his build so strong, he was a shield, a shelter, a brother, a friend.
This was why it was so difficult to leave him. No, wait, not to leave him. To say

HopeEridan Ampora awoke in a familiar room.Hope3 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
He sat up, feeling groggy and peculiar. Why had he been laying on the floor? And what was he doing back in his room on LOWAA? And why was he in one piece?
Pain, a disjointed feeling, the spray of purple blood.
Oh, that's right. He was dead. Kanaya killed him.
He stood, a little shakily. It was sort of a hard thing to wrap his mind around. He didn't feel dead. Not really. He felt a lot better than he'd felt in a while, truth be told. The only reason he knew was because he remembered the pain. He remembered dying.
Just to check, he glanced out the window. Instead of seeing the cathedrals and the sky full of angels that he was so used to in the Land of Wrath and Angels, he saw nothing but blackness. That settled things. He was definitely dead.
Death didn't seem so bad. He wasn't in pain anymore. He wasn't angry anymore. He wasn't scared, scared of dying and scared of the girl he'd thought he'd killed. Things were better now. Right? He didn't realize
