    Summary

    If asked, Karkat Vantas would say he only had eleven friends on Alternia. He would say that it was a clusterfuck hellhole where people killed each other for sport. He would say he was lucky to have as many as he did. 

    But sometimes it takes a village to protect one self-depricating mutant blood. Sometimes it takes many hidden trolls to keep one of their own safe. If a whole society shapes themselves around one person and that person knows nothing of it, that doesn't mean they aren't friends. It doesn't mean that one individual was cold and didn't care to notice. It means that the village successfully did their job in secret, risking their own lives and taking others' in order to protect.

    Summary

    On Ancension day, Karkat is not culled. Instead, he is “saved” from culling by Eridan, his own Prince Charming in a purple cape. Eridan takes him in, and Karkat is instantly bombarded by Eridan’s pale affections. He’s not sure if he’s quite “wooed”, but he supposes he’s Eridan’s morail now.
    Eridan is in love, Karkat is resigned, and it’s all both wonderful and terrible.

    Summary

    As a failed actor, Darkleer has to take whatever job is going.

    Working for clowns wasn't exactly what he had in mind. Gaining two demanding, vacillating quadrant partners was even less.

    Summary

    When it comes to facing off against an aggressive Empire ruled by a sadistic and savvy Empress, one who’s even older than the already eons long Cybertronian war, unorthodox methods must be taken to get your way.

    And some already know that lesson much better than others.

    Summary

    Your name is Kurloz Makara, but most everyone refers to you by your title, the Grand Highblood. One of the last trolls who used your hatchling name on a regular basis has died, and you are not sure of how to proceed. You want Mindfang's head mounted on a pike, but not as much as you just want to lie down, close your eyes, and not awaken until your moirail does. Your moirail, with the broken neck, having been hung from a noose meant for another, and you unable to tell her all those things you should have said before she died.

    Still, your advisors beg you to keep going. And you do try. For the family. In retrospect, you do not try nearly hard enough.

    Scenes from your emotional unraveling, and from the relatively brief time you had with Redglare as your moirail.

    Summary

    Your name is Latula Pyrope, and you not yet known as Neophyte Redglare. You're a first year in the Imperial Academy of Law, which is hard, especially given the fact that trolls are tacitly allowed to duel each other for prestigious and influential placements on cases.

    So you ask a troll you'd trust with your life - one you probably shouldn't - to teach you how to fight better. You're adept with your cane, but you need more practice. And for his part, The Grand Highblood does. He really does, and the both of you know exactly why he's so determined to help you.

    But know what's worse than pretty much getting your ass handed to you in a four-on-one duel, though? The troll you've wanted to be your moirail (and maybe a little more) since you were seven, finally rejecting you. You think you'd sooner take those trolls in a duel again. That would hurt less.

    His name is Kurloz Makara, and he is only trying to keep you safe. Well, you're safe now, you suppose, as is he. Safe and miserable, the both of you.

    Summary

    Your name is Latula Pyrope, although nearly every troll outside of your quadrants refers to you as Neophyte Redglare out of respect.

    Presently, you are a legislacerator in training. You perform your duty and enforce the letter of the law to the best of your ability, all while trying to balance your studies with your relationships. However, you have always been analytical to a fault. You have always seen what most others either fail or choose not to, watching quietly, making silent observations and comparing them to your vague ideas of what justice is, so much so that sometimes even you close your eyes to what you believe to be just and legitimate. Keep your eyes open constantly, and they start to sting.

    More often than you care to admit, you wonder if these traits of yours are assets or flaws.

    And the time when you will have to choose between adhering to the law or to your sense of integrity is coming sooner than you think.
