    Summary

    When a string of grisly murders shakes the gilded ivory towers of the cosmopolitan city of Skaia, the world takes notice. The case is handed to the capable and proven Crow's Eye firm, run by Dave Strider and Rose Lalonde. When the very same crime spree is revealed to be the sins of a race of genetically altered humans, known colloquially as werewolves, the duties of behavioral analysis fall upon an unknown, lone wolf, Karkat Vantas.

    (A noir fic, styled after Rintaro's 2001 film, Metropolis.)

    Summary

    In a country where money is king, poverty is rampant, and jobs are hard to come by, artistic expression is the language of the unoccupied. Unsponsored graffiti might be illegal, but that isn't stopping the artists who create it. In the capital of Skaia, one group—the Skaia 4413, known as the S4413—reigns as the most popular artistic collective. Their work is well known, the members are high on the city's law enforcement list of wanted criminals, and their boldness is unmatched. It's all fun and games with a side of underground sponsorship until a new group shows up and starts tagging over damned near everything.

    (Primarily a Homestuck DaveKat fic, hence why Three Houses isn’t a tagged fandom.)

    Summary

    The artificial island territory of Skaia has been the center of technological innovation for decades. Their lifelike Kobian androids are coveted for their humanity, yet reviled for their tendencies to grow far more sentient than anyone could ever dream of. Androids, once the pride of Skaia, are now reviled; resentment is growing. As unrest grips the population, human-on-android violence increases.

    This isn't a story about teaching a robot how to love. This is a tale of robots teaching people what it means to love.

    Summary

    Now, before we start anything big, let me explain something. In today’s society, it has been known for strong willed people to hallucinate a being that constantly voices their darkest feelings. These hallucinations are called Tricksters.

    Not everyone has a trickster, and if you have one it’s not a good thing. At. All. A trickster will try to sucker you into their emotions and thoughts, but don’t start giving in to their thoughts or they will take control for a small period of time. A trickster is said to be a big horrible monster with beguiling ways that can make even the strongest person break eventually.

    Since that’s out of the way, you’re John Egbert, and you have a trickster. Remember how I just stated that tricksters are big horrible monsters? Well, not really. At least your trickster didn’t look it…

    Summary

    Karkat lives alone in the city, which sounds normal. But he's anything but. The troll has been tossed from foster home to foster home, never feeling like he belonged anywhere. He finally moved out and got an apartment for himself when he was eighteen, but it was only a matter of time before he got himself in trouble with the law. Now he has to take care of a mute Dave Strider as a consequence for breaking the law, and he's anything but qualified to do so. Or is he?

    Summary

    Your name is Karkat Vantas, you're eighteen years old, and you work at a weird novelty shop known as Mage's Emporium. Your friend and coworker, John, has some sort of weird fascination with hooking you up with his friend, Dave, and you are not having any of this shit. None of it. You will not touch this shit with a fifty-mile pole, and that is most definitely the end of the story.

    OR...

    A tale of romance between a tattoo artist and a bored novelty store cashier, as instigated by a guy with $200 riding on said relationship.

    EDIT (10 JANUARY 2017): I want this fic to be as accurate and respectful as possible! If you're Deaf or HoH and see any problems, please let me know! My goal is to help diversify fanfic, not offend people.

    Summary

    It's not innuendo.

    Dave Strider truly is a Jedi jouster. At least he has a sword and he's in the future, dabbling in the seedy underworld of street jousting. Throw yourself on a speeder bike and hurtle towards your opponent's sword at umpteen miles per hour. What isn't truly innovative and logical about this sport!?

    Karkat Vantas, meanwhile, is an Alternian with a pointed disdain for his planet's violent culture. After being dragged to one too many arena fights by his Alternian Culture Club from school, he takes things into his own hands. He intends to create a news report on the horrors of arena fighting. What he gets...

    Well, he'll certainly get something.

    Summary

    Dave is saved by a man on a motorcycle. Saved by the orphanage that ran an illegal brothel, where Dave was one of the most desired.

    After all these years, that shit still haunts him and it only makes sense that maybe
    just maybe
    he would start falling for the first person to ever extend any kind of genuine kindness to him.
    and maayybe that same person might feel the same way.
    it's all very fucked up, and both the brothers struggle with reaching a point of comfort in their relationship, struggle with the guilt and the growing.
    [unfinished and orphaned.]
