Fandom: Homestuck
Rating: G
Word count: 3044
Pairing(s): N/A
Warnings: John is horrified by how pink the girl's toy aisle is

Summary: John discovers that Santa Claus has never visited Jade's island for whatever reason, which is absolutely unacceptable and a slap in the face of holiday tradition. While a trip to the North Pole to give Santa a piece of his mind is out of the question, John can at least try to provide Jade with a decent substitute to a strange man leaving her presents.

Title: E/+R_R0R
Fandom: Homestuck
Rating: T
Word count: 5,048
Pairing(s): Gen
Warnings: Major character death, violence, blood, body horror, mind control

Summary: Sgrub has one last trick up its sleeve to finish off the game. As the session veers off into doomed territory, Dave finds that some timelines are worth dying to reset and some timeline resets demand a heavier price than others.

Notes: This is a spin-off of Act 1.10 of Constants & Variables, so that's obviously recommended reading. That said, the only context needed is that the beta kids are trolls and they just beat Sgrub. Be prepared that this story does not end happily, since its conclusion will be in C&V.

Fandom: Homestuck

Word count: 2,929
Pairing(s): familial Dave Strider & Bro Strider

Summary: Getting smashed for the first time and livetweeting it seems like a good idea until Dave realizes he isn't actually a fun drunk but is too drunk to have the common sense to stop.

Notes: Happy 4/13! Didn't think I'd be posting anything for today, but then inspiration struck and another sickfic got written. Also, I'm branching out a little and trying my hand at second person again.
