This is ridiculous. Just so you know. It's set early in the meteor journey, because that's when I started writing it, and it's somewhat AU as a result.

Homestuck | Rose & Karkat, Rose/Kanaya | 4300 words | PG | AO3

Love hurts. It's supposed to.

For the "our song" square in my cottoncandy bingo card. More Hogwarts 'verse.

Homestuck | Roxy & Dirk | 1500 words | PG | at AO3

Summary: The end of Seventh Year is coming too soon for Roxy.

For the "candy" square in my cottoncandy bingo card.

Homestuck | Feferi♥Sollux, Sollux♠Eridan | 2900 words | PG | at AO3

Sollux didn’t plan to start Fourth Year playing terrible travel games with Slytherin aristocracy, but the honour of Ravenclaw House is at stake. Apparently.

Voting results for Round 1 of the HSO are up! So, I get to link this one, finally. The word limit was a bit of a bind, and avoiding using the words eyes, see and look turned out to be a bigger technical challenge than I'd anticipated, but on balance I'm really happy with this one. This ship is such a good ship. It placed 17/109, which I'm comfortable with.

With thanks to [personal profile] blottingtheink, who not only beta'd this but also talked through every idea about blackrom dynamics I've ever had.

Homestuck | Terezi♠Vriska | 3000 words | PG

They have a conflicted and difficult friendship again now, but Terezi wouldn't be preparing to be in the same room as Vriska, for the first time in nearly two sweeps, if they hadn't been paired up for a trainee examination. (A non-Sgrub AU.)

This was supposed to be a much longer story about all the ways John has met Rose for the first time, through timeline shenanigans and unfortunate bouts of unconsciousness and grimdarkness, exploring the things I love most about the dynamics of their friendship. Also: grimdark throes! Totally were going to be a thing. That story tied itself into knots and fell in an unworkable heap, but I really liked this pesterlog and I thought it could stand alone as a ficlet.

Homestuck | Rose & John | 800 words | G | at AO3

TT: That's what I mean.
TT: I am not a good friend.

GT: i bet that's not true.
TT: That would be a singularly ill-conceived bet.

This is one of the Homestuck Shipping Olympics Bonus Round 1 fills I linked a few days ago, now cleaned up and expanded a little. Written for the genre prompts 'Medical Romance' and 'Gangsters'.

Character dynamics will be jossed the moment Vriska actually interacts with either of the other two in canon, but in the meantime, have two Serkets and a fishgirl in my favourite underwritten quadrant!

Homestuck | Vriska♣Aranea♣Meenah | 1600 words | G | at AO3

It's the third time this week that Vriska and Meenah have brought their street conflict to Aranea's ER.

So hey, I wrote truth-or-dare tropefic for [personal profile] such_heights' Female Character Trope Fest (which is still ongoing)! Any excuse to write alpha kids high school AUs is by definition an excellent one.

Homestuck | Jane/Roxy | 2300 words | PG | at AO3

Summary: "This is an emergency beffsy situation," Roxy said. "Priority, like, 8.3, which is a totally bullshit number I just made up that basically means 'Outranks the fuck out of whatevs bs class full of stuff I already learned years ago that we have next'."

Acknowledgements: Thanks to [personal profile] blottingtheink for the quick and excellent beta!

Tell Me True )

This pairing is impossible. I love it to bits, but Rose and Kanaya as a duo are the enemy of engaging pacing, and I'm still trying to work out how to push them enough, or get them to push each other enough, to overcome that. Here's a first go; I had to write it four times to get it to something I didn't despair of.

Homestuck | Rose/Kanaya | 2,600 words | PG | at AO3

Summary: Kanaya is usually good at offering caring and reasonable comfort. But this, right now: this she isn't equipped for.
Acknowledgements: With thanks to blottingtheink, who was right on every count.
