Worth the Kill? Chapter ThreeKarkat woke up first, there was a soft light filtering in through the blinds. He yawned and stretched, noticing John was still holding him tight. The troll smiled and pressed his head against the boy. 'Is this what having Matesprit feels like? This sense of safety?' He was really surprised that he felt so safe around John. There was something about the human boy that made him forget his fears, and feel relaxed. Something that he'd never experienced in his life. Karkat grabbed John careful to not wake him up and held on like he was going to disappear. 'He still could, everything I have disappears.' He clutched this person who he only met hours ago like he was the dearest thing he had. John had become the trolls only link, his only chance, at a peaceful life. He shivered at the thought of losing the boy, this amazing wonderful boy who sheltered him, even though he was a complete stranger, and a troll.Worth the Kill?

John felt the troll shiver, he opened his eyes, "Oh, hey Karkat, are you ok?

"Yes, John Egbert," he fell back and called to you, "John are these your friends?"
You had just finished putting on your clothes when you entered the room and saw them, your friends, people you have waited years to see again. "Rose? Dave? Jade?" You could tell your eyes must have lit up and a smile spread across your face, "Oh my gosh!" You ran forward and hugged them all tightly, "It's been so long! I'm so glad you're here!" You released them and smiled wide. "I've missed you all so much!"
"We missed you too!" Jade said excitedly.
Rose is still staring at Karkat, "John, I didn't know you had a troll. Are you watching him for someone?"
"No. He is my owner." Karkat answered instead.
You moved over to Karkat and pushed him forward a bit, "Oh yeah! I should introduce him, this is Karkat!"
Jade runs up and hugs him too, "Hi Karkat, I'm Jade!" Karkat just look
30 Minute Fic: The Blue Jay and the CrowThere was the usual hustle and bustle of the market place all around him. People were moving and talking and trading, everything was so full of life. John Egbert couldn't believe his eyes. He was intrigued by the large city. Since he came from a tiny town on the outskirts of the kingdom; anything bigger than a small village was a wow factor. He weaved in and out of the crowd taking in all the sights and sounds. This was the first time he'd been to a bigger town. Everything was so exciting.30 Minute Fic: The Blue Jay and the Crow4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
He was a little hot underneath the large coat he was wearing, but it was worth it to see this. John loved people; he loved everything about being around people. It was all so much fun, he could hardly stand it. Eventually he ended up buying an apple and moving away from the market place to the center of the town near a water fountain. He rested by the fountain, enjoying the cool breeze and spray from the water.
The people passed by, not even noticing his existence. Which was great, he loved just bein
Wings of a Worthless God Chapter ThreeThe warmth leaked from his body. His shirt became damp with your tears. You're not sure how long you sat there, sobbing over his body. Time seemed to stand still; your mind briefly flickered over to wonder if Dave or Aradia had stopped it for you, so you could cry forever. You looked up, trying to see through the water that gathered at your eyes. You could see the blurry figures of your friends, and the outlines of some of the trolls. Someone stepped forward and tried to tell you something; you screamed at them and returned to crying. Your whole body is shaking and you don't even remember summoning the wind that is swirling around you. It seems to by wailing along with you, rushing past your ears as you scream. During your breakdown you realize something, through your grief you come to a conclusion.Wings of a Worthless God Chapter Three4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

No, you are beyond pissed words cannot describe your anger, or your hate.
You stop crying. You stop screaming. The wind ceases, and the room goes quiet. You mumbl

Dirk gave a shallow laugh, "I think there is a probability of twenty-five percent that this "double date" goes according to my well thought out plan"
"I think it'll be friggen blast! Lighten up Di you're always so taunt, like a string about to snap. Have fun, think of it as an adventure!"
"Yeah! Karkat, it's an adventure!" The windy boy bounced alongside his boyfriend.
"No, John, it's a fucking date. You know, because it's Valentine's Day, that absurd stupid human holiday where everyone gushes all over their Matesprits and spend ridiculous amounts of money on stupid trinkets."
"So you don't like the present I got you?"
The trolls hand flew up to the necklace around his throat, John's windy symbol was shining proudly on a silver chain, the blue charm matched the blue ring he wore on his finger, a gift from last year. "N-No, I love it John."
John laughed, "And?"
He sighed, "And the chocolate was good too, thanks."

Wings of a Worthless God Chapter FourJohn managed to drag Karkat back up the hill and into the small cave they turned into a makeshift shelter. He deposited his Matesprit on the small pile of blankets they had and looked over him worriedly. "Thank god," He exhaled the breath he had been holding when he saw Karkat's chest moving slowly up and down. The fire was dimming, barely crackling. John took off his jacket and shirt and threw them over Karkat. He knew it wasn't a lot, but it was better than nothing. Hurriedly he built back up the fire and left to search for rocks. There was a survival show he saw once that recommended heating rocks up and burying them in the sand to keep the body warm while sleeping.Wings of a Worthless God Chapter Four3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The wind was strikingly cold against his bare skin. "Leaving my jacket with Karkat probably wasn't the best idea " John hiked through the snow; he mustered up the energy to combat the wind with his own, eventually being able to nullify the gusts around him. There was nothing to be found around the entrance of the ca
Worth the Kill? Chapter Two"Um Karkat?" the troll grunted a response, "I think we should probably head down for dinner now, you do want to eat, right?" The human could see Karkat's ears perk a bit at the mention of food. He chuckled and pulled away from the troll. "Is there anything trolls can't eat, you know stuff that makes you sick?"Worth the Kill? Chapter Two4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"I think no." He replied.
"That's good!" He tugged him along, "It'd hate to hurt you or something on accident." Karkat sat down at the table next to John and across from his father. John set a plate of food down in front of him. "Here, I sorta grabbed a bit of everything, Dad and I aren't sure what you like yet, so he made a bunch of stuff."
Karkat's eyes grew wide at the amount of food, he could feel his mouth water, 'God this is pathetic, I'm reacting like a starved beast.' He grabbed a piece of meat and froze; he noticed the older human grab the utensil by his side. "Fuck," he muttered putting the meat down and grabbing the pronged instrument, 'Goddamn it Karkat get a fuc
Still the Same Chapter Seven UneditedWhen John woke the next morning he was still surrounded by quietly sleeping trolls. He went to move but found himself trapped in Karkat's embrace. He didn't mind, for the first time in almost a month he didn't wake up alone. It felt nice to be surrounded by others he could relate to a little bit. His senses were off, compared to the others, the closeness was getting uncomfortable but he would rather be uncomfortable then alone. The troll next to him shifted and pulled John with him. He couldn't help giggling when Karkat couldn't pull him over with him like a huge stuffed animal.Still the Same Chapter Seven Unedited3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Karkat opened his eyes blinking a few times, "Oh, hey Egbert."
"Oh hey yourself," he said back. "Good morning." Karkat nuzzled into John and sighed deeply. "Sleep well?" He nodded. "Do we have to wait until everyone is awake to move?"
Karkat sat up and looked around, "Not really." He started talking softly, "Hey guys, get your lazy asses up. It's time to move on with the day. Don't you growl at me, come on let'

"Yeah sure," a voice called from the other room, "just make sure you actually remember to come home this time. I know how you love to fly around for hours." Karkat could hear John giggles until he was out the door. "Fucking idiot, I swear, why do I love him?" He paused flipping the channel, "Oh yeah, because he's somehow godly perfect."
The troll hadn't been paying attention to the TV but now he wished he had. It was always when he let his guard down that something bad happened. The news update provided Karkat with something he didn't want to think about. There was a line of severe weather heading straight towards them. It was a strong storm development that sprung up out of nowhere, and John was going to be right in the middle of it.
Panicking the troll leapt from his seat and ran outside calling John's name. Unfortunately the human was

Well, actually, you guess you did a pretty good job! Everyone made it out fine, and they made a new world, and it's awesome! You're so proud of them. You just wish you could join them.
Being dead sorta sucks for that.
You remember watching him pick you up and carry your body away. You remember his tears, and how he held you. You drifted behind him silently, making eye contact with your friends hurt, so instead you focused on his horns. He took your body somewhere private, and you listened as he cried and screamed your name. So desperately you wanted to scream back. You wanted to wipe the tears from his face, and the blood from yours. You cried too, but he couldn't hear you, no one could hear you. Instead you hugged him from behind and buried your face in his back, sobbing with him. He went stiff briefly, and your breath caught in a chest that wasn't real, for just a moment hope rose in your heart, maybe he could feel you. But that thought died as soon
Wings of a Worthless GodThe Land of Pulse and Haze was a truly awful planet. Thick, choking air accompanied by water comprised of blood. Karkat Vantas couldn't stand the sight of it. This world was built to piss him off; it was just one big reminder that he was different. It was one huge slap in the face. But he wasn't going to take it anymore.Wings of a Worthless God4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Imps exploded into grist as he climbed the stairs, slashing enemies apart with double sickles. Karkat charged forward, nothing was stopping him this time. His goal was a temple that was located deep within a cavern. The walls of rock crumbled away at parts, revealing pulsating flesh. Everything seemed to move and be alive; the troll couldn't take much more of it. He just wanted to defeat whatever boss was at the end, gain his top level and abscond the fuck out there. The tunnels were cramped, and everything felt like it was closing in. Karkat hated it. Another imp was slain as he fought his way through the dungeon. There was a pitiful amount of enemies, something that
Wings of a Worthless God Chapter TwoYou can't believe what you are seeing. Karkat unwraps the long strip of fabric from around his chest and back. Slowly he turns around and lets you see. There are two bright red strips on his back. You stand and walk over, fearing he is injured, but as you get closer, you discover that's not what they are at all. He twitches as your hand gently touches one. Getting a bit braver you rest your hand on it, "Karkat," you start, the red membrane is soft and warm, "Karkat are these " As you inspect him the mysterious growths start to look familiar. "Oh god, Karkat " you put a hand to your mouth. His shoulders slump down and he sighs.Wings of a Worthless God Chapter Two4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
He starts to wrap his back again but you don't move your hand. "Karkat," you say softly, "no, don't." He turns around; the expression on his face hurts. "Can you " you trail off, and start again, "are they " his eyes are full of regret and shame. "Can I see them?" You ask and move behind him, he whispers "yes" so faintly you can hardly hear hi
