    Summary

    Mankind fell and robots took over the world. But all that is old news, that's not the story you want to hear.
    This is a story about hate, this is a story about love, this is a story about family, this is a story about friendship. This is a story about an underground bunker, robots gaining sentience and two brothers running away from an unknown threat.

    But mostly, this is a story about children growing up after the end of the world.

    Summary

    Karkat is a half human, half cryptid that only changes when startled or afraid, living alone in a cabin with his older brother. The only people Karkat has ever known are his brother, who has complete control over his form and is very quick to remind Karkat that he is simply more mature in every way, his mother, who died to a cryptid attack when they were both pretty young, and a couple of online pals.

    Dave is a boy born into a cruel government-funded research center revolving around the capture and taming of cryptids. His two parents, three siblings and himself work there along with a couple of close family friends and some interns and employees found around the city. His mother is manipulative and his father is downright abusive, and both expect him to work full time for the good of the company, leaving him a hot mess.

    It was always fated to be a recipe for chaos when the two inevitably met.

    Summary

    Sneaking out past curfew is one thing, sneaking out to visit a prince, on the other hand, is an entirely different thing. They should’ve known it’d come to bite them in the rear eventually.

    Summary

    Dirk's life is tough. He spends most of his time desperately worried about his friends' lives, trying to protect them in any way he can, and usually failing in the attempt. As a packless Alpha alone in the middle of a post-apocalyptic future, he's had to learn to deal with his useless instincts and his potentially fatal ruts. It isn't easy, especially not when there's a smugly superior version of himself who doesn't have to deal hormones at all, just a text message away.

    One day, he is going to meet his friends in person, and come hell or high water, they're going to be pack.

    That day can't come soon enough, in Dirk's opinion.

    Summary

    Thirteen-year-old Dirk Strider and the other Troll/Human Descendants of the Sixteen Gods have been waiting to meet their 'parents' their entire lives. When they finally do, Dirk is determined to prove himself. Because then... maybe his Bro would want to get to know him.

    Meanwhile, for Dave Strider, parenting is hard--especially when you had no clue you even had a kid. It was enough to have unresolved childhood issues and an inability to confess his feelings for a certain troll, but now he has to try (and fail) to not embarrass himself in front of this mini-version of Bro.

    Oh god this is going to be a disaster.

    Summary

    “Do you know what I’m talking about, Karkat? When you enter the room and it feels like summer. When you look at me and your eyes go round and I know you see me. When you’re next to me and it feels right and I know that that’s where you belong; in my car, in my bed, under my arm. With me.”

    “You’re fucking drunk.”

    Summary

    You know that Jake’s coming to terms with reality and the shape of it, how it doesn’t always come wrapped up with a bow and a credit screen, but you want to be sure. You can’t be the perfect movie boyfriend for him. You hope he knows that. You hope he’s okay with it.

    Hope was always his thing, though.

    or: Jake tells Dirk he'd never danced like no one was watching in that treehouse of his, and Dirk has to amend that immediately.

    Summary

    Jake English has never done anything wrong, ever, in his life, if you don't count literally all that stuff from the first installment of oxfordRoulette's diegetic-musical-cum-found-family-pirate-AU. Luckily, that was in the last story, and he is completely better now in all respects. None of that nonsense is a thing anymore and it will not be relevant at all! Surrounded by friends and allies, with a very cool piratey boyfriend and a hold full of treasure from his recently decimated country, he's got everything a fellow could want.

    What will he do?

    Befriend an octopus god. Learn to fish. Kick back. Take it easy. Kiss his boyfriend a lot. Open a jewelry company? Pursue immortality. Confront his past. Embrace his future. Maybe save the world. One thing's for sure: there will be a lot of songs involved.

    Summary

    Since he left Jake one year ago, Dirk has been lost. After all, it’s not easy wandering around homeless… especially when you’re a former enslaved spirit who is haunted by the memories of his kingdom and family all being destroyed. Or… were they?

He needs to find his reincarnated siblings, relearn his powers, and discover the secrets his lost memories may hold before whatever force out there succeeds in killing them.

    He can't fail. But to win... he'll need hope.

    Summary

    “I try not to let unrequited love get me down, man. I mean, I think unrequited love is like a universal experience, right. Like, most people experience it, and if there was no unrequited love in the world then everything would just go to shit. Like, if no one was sitting at home, weeping over Brian from work not loving them back or whatever, then what would the sad love song writers of our time have to wax poetic about? Society would fall without our regular dose of Ed Sheeran’s sweet sweet voice serenading us with tragic tales of long lost love, and god forbid the music industry can’t profit off of the general disappointment that is the world of romance -”

    “Dirk, what the fuck are you talking about?”

    (In which John and Dirk pine over each other to the point where their friends have to step in to try and get the idiots together)
