Title: Unhappy Refrain
Fandom: Homestuck
Rating: T
Word count: 3,839
Pairing(s): Dave Strider/Karkat Vantas
Warnings: Violence, blood, gore, and lots of doomed timeline character deaths.

Summary: The goal was to stop time traveling. When Karkat dies pointlessly, Dave reconsiders his stance. Maybe it's all right to abuse his Aspect, just one more time, one more time, one more time.

Notes: Title comes from Wowaka’s album, which I had playing on repeat while I wrote this.

Title: None the Wiser
Fandom: Homestuck
Rating: T
Word count: 2,900
Pairing(s): Dave Strider/Karkat Vantas
Warnings: off-screen violence, minor blood

Summary: When Karkat first meets Dave Strider, an anonymous caste troll who parades around in a bright red shirt for "teh ironyz," it's hate at first sight. His impression changes drastically when he discovers Dave's candy red symbol isn't as anonymous as he pretends.

Notes: Credit to my beta for coming up with "multi-person vehicular movement can" as a troll term for "bus," because I am awful at inventing troll terminology.

Title: How Did You Manage This One?
Fandom: Homestuck
Rating: G
Word count: 1,663
Pairing(s): Dave/Karkat
Warnings: N/A

Summary: Karkat gets caught in a literal bind when he fiddles with the meteor lab's wiring. To make matters worse, his matesprit is too busy cracking bad jokes and flirting with him to be of much help.

Notes: Based on this fanart by Tumblr user fivefootfuckyou, because sometimes I see the words "someone fic this" and can't help but fic it.

Title: Catching Colds on a Flying Rock in the Middle of Space
Fandom: Homestuck
Rating: T
Pairing(s): Dave Strider/Karkat Vantas, Rose Lalonde/Kanaya Maryam
Warnings: cold symptoms

Summary: Rose catches a bad cold and it slowly spreads to the rest of the meteor crew. None of them are particularly good at admitting they're sick, let alone looking after themselves, but at least they're decent at caring for each other.

Notes: This takes place a little after year two on the meteor -- Rose's relationship with Kanaya and booze are both fresh, Dave and Terezi have only recently went their separate ways, no one realizes Terezi isn't blind anymore, etc., etc.

Title: English is a Beetch
Fandom: Homestuck
Rating: G
Word count: 2,630
Pairing(s): Dave Strider/Karkat Vantas
Warnings: N/A

Summary: When Rose and Dave join the meteor crew, they find the trolls speak with heavy alien accents, Karkat being the worst offender by far. Karkat's English is indecipherable to the point that he asks Dave to help him improve it, accidentally gaining a shiny new Texan accent in the bargain.

Notes: Based on a prompt by Redbird25 on Tumblr.
