    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 when no one else seems to care. 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

    In which a young man born into a family of federal criminals does his best to disappoint neither his older brother nor his housemate who may or may not later turn out to be the love of his life, but along the way gets tangled up in endless strings, probably nearly dies once or twice, and must navigate the clusterfuck of his life to arrive at his destination where he hopes to finally be at peace with his heart, his mind, his loyalties, his family, and the law.

    Summary

    They managed to win the game somehow. He's not really sure of the details, but it's not all it's cracked up to be. He's stuck in an unfamiliar body with a thirteen year old little brother who's terrified of him.

    Somehow, he is sure this is his fault.

    Summary

    This apartment, these walls and corners, these floors and doorways, they’re Dirk’s refuge. His shell, his armor. This place is light and warmth in an endlessly empty dark sea, a piece of the past to cling to in the wreckage of the future. A gift from his brother, a birthday present, the present of having birthdays, of being a human in a place meant for humans. Dirk could go out on rocket board, on rap-bot, on rafts, following the gulls, living free out under the sky, sailing by the light of the stars, but always he’d return to his sanctuary, his roost, his home.

    This apartment is Dave’s cage, and he spent thirteen years crammed up against the bars by a man who did not love him.

    Summary

    He's not your brother, but he is. He's not the kid you spent thirteen years fucking up and he's the same boy you watched grow from carpet-crawling rugmonkey to gangly teenage boy.

    He's not the hero, and that means you don't have to hurt him anymore.

    Summary

    "Don’t let anyone say you don’t love your little meteor baby, but… the guy’s a bit of a handful, literally and figuratively; when you carried him from the crash sight, he was barely big enough to cover your palm, sleeping quietly, a picture perfect little angel. Of course, that hadn’t lasted long. You almost wish you would have snapped a picture of him before he turned into a screaming little monster."

    Or, In Which Dave Has Epilepsy and Bro Deals In a Spectacularly Bad, but Effective Manner. Things Continue On, As Usual.

    Summary

    Davesprite has always known that the Game would come back to fuck one last time. He just never knew that it would come in the form of a choice. To be more exact, The Choice.

    Summary

    Prequel and Sequel to "My Boys." Title may be subject to change.

    Lil Cal Strider has always accepted that his life is odd, weird, strange. What he didn't expect is that, in the dying moments of Sburb, he becomes a Player and, to top it off, changes the ending of Sburb entirely!

    Now in the new universe, he must learn how to act and be human, all the while looking for his boys. Through new discoveries, a kind old couple who owns a coffeeshop, and his own flaws, he may discover that being human isn't really being human at all.

    It's being himself.

    Summary

    You have no idea what the fuck you are even doing anymore. You’re standing outside the door, their door, like an idiot and wow, you hope nobody calls the police on you because that would suck.

    You know they’re all there because you’ve been following them ever since they won the Game. You’ve kept separate tabs on each of them and know what they’ve been up to, what they’ve done, what they ate for dinner last night (which was takeout, surprise surprise, you really need to get in there to fix their eating habits). It might just be on the south side of obsession, just a tiny bit but goddamnit, these are your boys. You’ve raised at least three of them, were the emotional comfort for two, and the last one… well, you never got to really interact with him but you were involved in his life, in all their lives. For better or for worse.
