Dream Defying Chapter 2Nepeta woke up on her bed and yawned. That was the best sleep she had gotten in a while. She sighed. Karkat's so nice, she thought. I need to tell him when he wakes up...Dream Defying Chapter 22 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
But whenever she thought this, she remembered Terezi.
Nepeta felt tears beginning to well up in her eyes. Terezi obviously liked Karkat, and he probably felt the same way.
Nepeta grabbed her head and groaned. What is wrong with me? Terezi was her friend; she should be happy for her if Karkat is flushed.
But why didn't she feel this way? Because I love him, she thought.
She forced this out of her mind and walked into the lab. The only others in there were Gamzee, Sollux, and Terezi. Gamzee was carelessly dancing in the middle of the room. It appeared that Sollux and Terezi were having a conversation. Tears were creeping down Terezi's cheeks. "Are you sure?" She asked, her voice warbling.
"Yeah, I'm thorry." Sollux said.
"How can we find out?"
"It may take a little bit. We don't know of he'th there or not"

"He'll be fine, trutht me."
"I don't know, this looks dangerous..."
"Look, I know what I'm doing."
"What if it doesn't happen?"
"Oh, pleathe, with thothe guyth, at leatht one of them ith going to try it."
"Not you, the otherth..."
"It just seems a bit far-fetched."
"Look, I know what I'm doing, okay?"
"I hope for his sake you do..."
Karkat slowly opened his eyes. Where am I? he thought. He sat up and took a look at his surroundings. Everything was purple. Could it be?
Karkat turned his head to see multiple small black aliens walking by. I'm on Derse, he thought. But how? Maybe the one of the trolls had the answer. Equius? No. Eridan? Uh, no. Gamzee's to high to comprehend anything. Fef, maybe...
Karkat sighed. Gog, how long has it been like this? He thought. He thought about going to her and smiled. He was flushed for her, no doubt, but he doubted she was flushed for him. Being a shipper complicates things.

Karkat stood beside Nepeta as they walked around Derse. He had just been informed that his normal self has been in a coma. "When did that even happen?"
Nepeta held her hands up in an "I-don't-know" sort of way. "I honestly don't know; I found out a few minute before I fell asleep."
"So," Karkat looked around, thinking of what to say next, "I guess I'm stuck here with you?"
Nepeta blushed. "Well, yeah, but you don't have to be, it's your choice."
Karkat raised an eyebrow, and smiled. "So you wouldn't mind if I, say, hung out with Gamzee?"
Nepeta's eyes widened. "No, Karkitty, I was joking!" She said, a little too quickly. Karkat frowned. She seemed panicky and nervous all of a sudden...
He decided to change the subject. "So what's Derse like, usually?"
Nepeta shrugged. "Purple."
Karkat rolled his eyes. "I gathered that, but what else is it like?"
Nepeta looked up, like she was thinking about it. "That's it, really."
"What do you guys even do for fun, then?"

“Nhf-Fuckin’ what the hell?”
Karkat’s eyes shot open as he sat up rubbing his eyes. His eyes wandered over to the clock.
“Jegus its fucking two in the morning ass face, couldn’t you fucking-” he looked over at the door way and saw a teary eyed Nepeta standing in his door way. He sighed and sat up a little more.
Nepeta looked down, wiping her eyes, she tackled him into a hug and started to sob in his chest. Not knowing what to really do, Karkat lazily wrapped his arms around her and rested his chin on the top of her head.
“Hey…come on now…shhhhh….” He gently started to rub small circles in her back while she sobbed.
Karkat kissed the top of her head and pulled her close.

Jack was making his way around the town when he saw a few fairies zip by, their faces filled with concern and sadness. He sat up from his casual perch from the top of a Church building, his eyes narrowed with concern. What's wrong with them? He wondered with a frown, watching a familiar fairy float by his face. "Baby Tooth!" He called, taking his beloved staff and leaping off the roof, starting to follow his little friend.
She turned, her duel colored eyes fogged and sparkling with confusion and concern, mirror her siblings. It only pained the newer guardian more to see her face so sad, Is...is Tooth okay? He lowered his eyes at the thought, trying to piece it all together.
"What's happened? Where's Toothiana?" The white haired boy asked, hovering before the hummingbird like creature, looking at Baby Toot

You can tell he's not the people type, tell he's not the best communicator, but he has a heart and it's still beating, though they maybe in several different places... and pieces.
He's letting the wind direct his purpose, letting his mind be infiltrated and worse.
Letting his arms move on auto pilot, gliding across the clean surface, not a trace of the sparking waste of power's, just one mind and one hour, to finish coding a single... digital.. flower.
And after all is done, the breeze will be the only one to run through his hair, a soft caresses that's barely there, maybe he wishes to be less powerful and more vain, being so superficial and lame.
It gets boring, so he'll create a game, one that rocks and knocks sock's but also kills and hurt's and mocks.

WaltzIt was Christmas eve, and up in the North Pole, Nicholas St. North was getting ready to host his annual Christmas party. He had finished his job earlier than usual just to host the party, and he had made sure that everything was in place. North's factory had been decorated with millions of twinkling multicolored lights and never-melting ice and Christmas trees decorated with glowing ornaments and baubles. An orchestra of Elves and Yetis were assembled in the corner and were providing the music for the evening.Waltz2 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Somewhere in the factory palace, Jack stepped out his quarters that North had provided him for the night, pulling at the tie around his neck with apprehension. The suit was a little bit uncomfortable in comparison to his usual hoodie and pants ensemble, and so were the shoes. In all honesty, he wouldn't have worn the fancy outfit if not for the group of Tooth's minifairies that had kidnapped him and stuffed him into it. He stopped in front of a mirror to check his reflection. A d

Its not something you do often, but when you do, you only ever call for one troll; Karkat Vantas. At first you tried to deal with the memories yourself, but you couldn't hide them forever... eventually someone was going to find out.
Sobbing echoed off of the near empty lab walls, just you and a room full of grey to hide in, reminding you that you were alone... AGAIN. It makes you sob harder as the feeling begins to sink in, the first time was bad enough, but not knowing when and where you'll meet again is what really hurts, is what leaves you feeling scared and all alone like the wriggler you were and still are, your only six sweeps old you don't know what to do, you miss her and there's nothing you can do about it, this is one thing you can't control.

With a wave of his staff white flurries floated down from the over cast skies and coated the ground with cool kisses. Running through the air, Jack Frost shouted with glee, his icy blue eyes gleamed with the excitement of being a guardian for a full year. With Pitch being defeated for good, the guardians had finally been able to restore balance to the belief in the world, and in all that time, children's hope and faith in them had never been stronger.Frosty Kisses2 years ago in Sketches More Like This

I have obviously been gone a long time so I wanted to meet people from the lit community and get involved again so this seemed like a good idea, plus obviously its almost Christmas so why the hell not!
This year I asked my 7 closest friends to write their favourite memory from 2012 on a piece of paper about each of the other 7 (including me). They will all go into envelopes and on New Years Eve each person will get an envelope with these letters from the other 7 people about them. This is a great way to remind you of how far you have come in the past year, remember the best days and nights of that year, to feel loved, and it provides a permanent reminder that you can go back to in twenty years and remember this year.
