Given UpIt's been three long years on a ship before you finally meet up with your friends. Three long years of playing shitty MMO's and waiting anxiously on any word from your friends. Three years before you got to see them in person. There's something deep down in your heart that is scared that they won't be friends with you anymore, that they've changed. Three years is a lot of time. It's a lot of time to change as a person. You know, because you've changed a little bit. You're not as naïve as you were before; the game taught you a lot about yourself, and about how life can change so fast. It taught you to be strong, and acknowledge your weakness. You've had to cope with death, and depression. There's more to life than your prankster gambit and playing video-games. Sburb taught you a lot, it showed you a lot. There were some really horrible experiences, but also some really cool ones. You looked over at Jade and Dave and gave them both a reassuring smile.Given Up4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

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?
JohnKat: Happy New Years"Holy shit, John that is amazing!" The troll stared wide eyed at the fireworks display from the balcony. John laughed behind him and leaned against the rail.JohnKat: Happy New Years4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Well, just like on Earth, humans like to celebrate with fireworks. It's to welcome in the New Year Karkat!"
He continued to stare at the bright lights exploding in front of his eyes.
"Uh, Karkat?" he poked the troll, "Karkat?" No answer, "Karkat are you there?" He ran his hand in front of his face. "Kaaarkat!"
"Oh fuck, what? Hi John." The human giggled and leaned against his boyfriend. "Sorry, I was just we had nothing like this on Alternia, the only thing that mattered is that we lived through one more year. But this, this is awesome." The troll's eyes were glowing faintly in the dark, the colors of the explosions reflecting off his face.
John scooted closer and snuggled up to Karkat. A smile spread across his face as he got an idea. "Hey Karkat?" the troll grunted, "I have an idea."
"Oh this should be great." He rolled hi

You're armed with two bowls of popcorn and determination enough to staple water to a tree without using a little plastic baggy or turning it to ice. You are that determined. Tonight is movie night with Karkat. So far your co-friendleader has yet to be impressed by anything you show him. But tonight, tonight you're bringing out the big guns. What are those big guns? A great leader never reveals his strategies until they are put into motion!
Ok, maybe you'll tell. You have an armful of rom-coms. The very thing you know will push Karkat into liking you as something more than a portable punching bag. Maybe you'll even get to cross into friendship territory. Maybe. You're not getting your hopes up too much.

Still the Same Chapter ThreeOnce again Karkat was up before his alarm, he waited until it started chiming before stopping it. He rolled over and observed John, he was still sleeping. The boy was curled up in a ball of blankets and limbs, breathing normally, his hair swept messily across his face. Karkat brushed the strands out his eyes carefully; he didn't want to risk waking the boy. Waking a sleeping troll was like asking to get your throat slashed out. It was a defense mechanism that they hadn't been able to outgrow; only matesprits could get away with waking each other. Karkat slid out of the bed carefully and threw on some fresh clothes. He was surprised at how well John slept this night compared to the last. The difference was astounding. He felt horrible for disturbing his sleep, but the day was starting and he needed to be up for it. "John," he called, from across the room. "John, get your lazy sorry excuse for an ass out of bed right now. We have shit to do and it's not going to get done with you layingStill the Same Chapter Three4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Still the Same Chapter FourKarkat awoke early that morning. He groaned and rolled out of bed. For the first time in weeks Karkat had actually had nightmares of his own. They were terrible dreams, but they were not the dreams of his ancestors. He dreamed of his friend's deaths, over and over again, he saw his remaining friends die as well. But the one that hurt the most, the one that had Karkat sitting up in bed, gasping for air, and nearly clawing his blankets to shreds, was his dream of John. It was a dream where John died, saving Karkat.Still the Same Chapter Four4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The troll shook his head and cleared his thoughts. Growling he set off to do what made him wake up early in the first place. His hand rested on Sollux's door, he was suddenly overcome with nervousness. He took a few steps back and looked around. "What'th up KK?" a voice sounded behind him making him jump.
"Sollux, god, you scared the shit out of me."
"That'th thuprithing. Uthually you're more alert than thith." Sollux continued, "What did you need? I athume you're in-front of
Still the Same Chapter Six Part Two UNEDITEDThe next day was better for Karkat. He woke up and started packing right away. "Guys, get your lazy asses up we have to keep moving." The lab looked vastly the same. Every corridor was just as dark and poorly lit as the next. It didn't help that any signs were written in a language that was foreign to the trolls. They just had to move in a relatively straight line and hope they ran into something decent.Still the Same Chapter Six Part Two UNEDITED4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
They really had no clue what they were looking for. New transport pads were what they were hoping for. Or something that could be used to break the game even further than the scratch did.
"What are we doing?" Karkat mumbled half to himself half to the others.
"We're trying to live Karkat. Any way possible."
He sighed and opened the door to another sealed room, and looked inside. Dust was covering everything and even with their enhanced night vision it was hard to make anything out. Karkat shut the door and moved on. "How much food do we have? How long will it last?"

Still the Same Chapter TwoKarkat walked wearily back to his respiteblock, he had been up late helping Sollux with the new Alchemiter and could use some time to relax. He opened his door and fell onto his bed. The troll really missed his recuperacoon but nothing could be done about that. Karkat had barely drifted off into a shallow sleep when he heard the sound of padded footsteps and the small clicking of claws on the metal floor. A knock sounded on his door, and a frantic voice called from the hall. Karkat shot out of bed quickly realizing it was John. He opened the door and the new troll ran in breathing heavily. "John, what's wrong?" the boy just hugged him close and buried his face in Karkat's chest. "John, you have to tell me something."Still the Same Chapter Two4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"It was horrible, Karkat, horrible." The small boy was shaking, "All this blood, and the screams, why won't the screams go away?!" John was now crying, gasping for air as he remembered the horrible dreams. He would wake up from one, only to be tormented by another. A hand
