    Summary

    “Anyone down to take couples counseling and see at what point the therapist realizes we don’t even know each other?” “Idiots to lovers, 20k words, angst with a happy ending.”

    Basically Dave and Karkat are in college together and they meet up on one bored summer afternoon only to decide, in their chaotic minds, that they should attend couple’s counseling for the hell of it.

    Based on a Twitter prompt that I saw on Tumblr that I promised I would write alongside a few others!

    Mentions of abuse, child neglect, drugs, and alcohol!

    Summary

    All of these are posted separately on my page if you ever want to look at a specific one, but I would prefer to have them all in one place and am having trouble adding them to a collection after they've been published. Any necessary warnings will take place in the beginning notes, along with a short summary of the piece. All of these stories are strictly Davekat and other minor ships as background characters, but it will focus on Dave and Karkat no matter what! Hope you enjoy!

    Summary

    In a world where a fanfiction author decides that they really liked the Infinite Loops idea before realizing how fucking big and weird it was decided to make a fanfiction in a fandom they had newly fallen into. Join multiple characters that you love and hate in an adventure that you won't ever forget! Or at least I hope you don't forget that would make me sad if you did.

    Summary

    Dave Strider has always lived his life fighting in the war that took America by storm years ago when the initial nuclear bombs dropped, destroying the country. In a near-death experience, he meets a new and much more sheltered species. He finds himself living a life he never imagined existed in the world that he lived in now, but there he was, growing soft for a boy who had no idea of the troubles and navigation of the overworld.

    (Warnings may change over time, so please check the tags. They include things such as domestic abuse, child abuse, claustrophobia, mentions of blood and gore, and there will probably be mentions triggering emetophobia.)
    Thank you for reading! Y'all are the best!

    Summary

    It’s easy to fall into your old habits regardless of what anyone tells you to. There’s always more work to be done, more coding to be written, and projects to tinker with. However, despite this, there’s a knocking on your door that you can hear even over the psychedelic music playing distantly in your workshop.

    Summary

    Dave finishes what’s in his water bottle and Karkat finds himself enthralled with the noise for inexplicable reasons. Domestic cuddles ensues.

    Based on when I was talking to my mom about my sister’s chewing and how I can’t handle it but how she loves laying her head on top of my sister’s to listen to her when she chews on ice. I like the sound of chewing on ice myself and don’t mind it so much with other people, but I can’t stand anything else.

    Summary

    an AMV that I made years ago because even before a lot of plot revelations, I always found Daves character, life, roles (self appointed & otherwise) & attitude really sad & as a depiction of a young man going through adolescence - queer or not (personally, I think he's bisexual instead of gay) - he's a heartbreakingly accurate picture of that, especially in constant, repeated stressful situations. Kid is genuinely a cool fucking customer in every sense of the word, lol.

    "Fates Wide Wheel" belongs to Scott Bakula & someday I might even end up watching Quantum Leap, lol.
