'Delegation and cooperation,' Kanaya had said, her tone less reprimanding than affirmative. 'If you rewrite the system under them, it creates more friction than actual societal change.'
'Diplomacy is fucking lame,' Sollux had responded despondently, letting his head hit the table between them. She just laughed.

Restructuring Alternia from the bottom-up is never an easy job, but Sollux manages. Barely. A small snapshot of Sollux and Terezi's moirailship, as well as actual blood caste law discussion.

"You're not the only one who remembers it that way," Karkat said, softly, so softly Sollux had to bring his head closer to catch it. He looked down at this troll he had known before he had ever known he couldn't, and burned with how bad he wanted to kiss him.
He could take advantage of the moment. Why not? This was the essence of the two of them, right? If they just got carried away enough, ran fast enough ahead of their history, they could make it.
Except that was bullshit, and he knew it. No amount of red honeymooning would take away the guilt and confusion always close to the boiling over whenever he tasted what it was like to get this close.
Sollux Pyrope is tired of diplomacy parties, but as long as the newly crowned Empress needs him attending, he'll be there to moderate his easily excitable moirail, disapprove of her concupiscent choices, drink more troll champagne than necessary, and try to avoid fucking things up with a certain cranky jade-blood he may or may not be horns over fucking claws flushed for.
- Part 1 of Her Imperial Pacifism
The Alternia in this AU is post-usurpation of the Condense, and all the trolls are their canonical ages by the end of Homestuck to match their kid counterparts. All 12 Beta trolls grew up as a close group without SGRUB on Alternia. They were all involved, in some manner or form, to Kanaya’s plans to defeat the Condense and change trollian society. Kanaya's name as Empress is Her Imperial Pacifism, hence the title of the series.
And Earth? You'll see ;]

I have a LOT written out for this AU. I by whim posted a story I wrote from it and an encouraging response pushed me to show more! So, stay tuned, for sure.

“You know,” Denki says, out of nowhere, face down on the floor. “I’ve never seen a pussy. Like a real one.”
Eijirou hums “Me either,” without looking up from his worksheet, like it’s the most mundane, everyday conversation they’ve ever had.
Katsuki huffs, sets his textbook aside. “You wanna see mine?”

"Why are you like this?” Bakugou exclaims, throwing his hands up in the air.
He’s not sure if the question is rhetorical at his own expense or if Bakugou’s actually wondering—the look on his face is almost identical in both cases.
Before Shouto can even open his mouth to respond—he’s waffling between “Like what?” for maximum Bakugou-annoyance or “It’s the trauma.” because of the one time it made Kaminari laugh so hard he cried—Bakugou is already talking over him, scrubbing a hand down his face and sighing like talking to Shouto is the hardest thing he’s ever done.
“Don’t fuckin’ answer that. I know why you’re like this.”
Problem solved. Shouto says nothing.
Or, a temporary team-up leads to certain feelings-based revelations for both reluctantly involved parties. A conversation is also had. Sort of.
Shouto is of the opinion that they should just kiss about it before they do anything else.

Izuku knew they had nothing on him. He betrayed no one on either side. Even his sins are innocent.
Because everything he did, he had a reason to do so.
Izuku Midoriya WILL be a hero.
Even if no one believes in him anymore.

Formerly 'Neutral Deception'. I like this title better.

When Shigaraki has him hostage at the mall, Izuku pulls out all the stops to make sure nothing goes pear-shaped. Neither of them signed up for this.
