    Summary

    A gamebreaking glitch tore the game session to shreds, right before they reached the end. Dirk Strider was already dead at the time. Temporarily. Which left him to revive in the aftermath. As the Prince of Heart, he doesn't have much experience putting souls back together, only breaking them, but at this point he seems to be the only one who even knows shit is broken.

    He's the last person who'd trust himself with this. Not when he's out of time, out of place, and over his head being responsible for a little brother, a life, and a body his conveniently dead asshole of a splinterself already, thoroughly fucked up.

    AKA: Dirk-as-Bro attempts to figure out wtf happened and how to fix shit, because that's what he does. But no Dirk has ever excelled when truly alone. Good thing he isn't.

    Summary

    The universe spits you out straight onto the roof where you entered the game, and you catch yourself with your face.

    --

    Davesprite struggles with being the Other Dave. Bro is back from the dead, and the Strider apartment is about two times too crowded for everyone involved. Reconciliation takes time and effort, and forgiveness is a thing to be earned.
    You have to try, and when that's not enough, you have to try HARDER.

    Summary

    Thank god Caliborn isn’t here right now, you think, as Caliborn seeps into the room like a malignant devil who heard his name from inside your mind. He’s green and heat, and he is not welcome.

    “SILENCE THE CHILD. OR ELSE I WILL DO IT MYSELF.”

     

     
    (Dirk runs away from his abusive home in Texas all the way up to a cheap, abandoned house in Oregon that is haunted by an angry green poltergeist with Big Issues and a nasty mile-wide 'cruelty to the living' streak.

    Dave, the four-year-old little brother Dirk was not fully aware he had, follows him there.)

    Summary

    Your name is Dirk Strider, 19, and you absolutely don't have a problem. You don't because if you don't want something to be a problem, then it isn't. And right now? You most certainly, definitely, do not have any problems.

    And above all, you do not have any problems with your bro.

    ...

    Yeah, self-denial gets pretty bland after a few months.

    Summary

    We see Rose and Dave ascend and take robot forms. Their bodies too weak for their godtier powers. But Dirk never takes a robot form. Why is that?

    Summary

    Survival in the slums that shadow the city is hard enough as it is. Dirk has to balance that with raising a kid brother, all while not getting noticed; no small feat when your main source of income pits you against the Megacorps that run everything. But no one can run from their past forever.

    Summary

    TT: Dave’s guardian is absent and someone has to fill the role. For now, you’re the only one who can. Even if you’re unqualified.
    TG: fuck you you’re less qualified than me
    TT: False. Either way, you need to be on good terms with him. I’m not saying you have to be “best bros”, but pulling a sword on him when all he’s doing is breathing is unacceptable.
    TT: In other words, sort your shit out, Strider.
    TG: yeah okay but also fuck you
    TT: I love you too, brother mine.

    ————

    Or, the post-sburb AU where the kids have won and everyone tries to get their shit together in 2009.

    Alpha Dave tries to get the whole parenting thing down. The beta kids mourn the loss of their extraterrestrial friends. The alpha kids try to mend broken relationships. Davesprite’s identity issues are turned on their head when he has to facedown Davepeta. Davepeta is unbelievably stressed (and no one notices, which surprises absolutely no one).

    Summary

    "Aradia." He spoke more harshly than intended, "Do you hear yourself right now? You're throwing away your child. For fucks sake, you're almost an adult. This is your kid, I can't take responsibility for her. I can barely take care of myself-"

    AKA

    No game AU where Aradia dumps her baby on 15 year old Dirk. Apart of a series I'm working on so there's more to come.
