    Summary

    “Once there was light! I cannot remember it!” the Seer babbled. The Radiance waved from behind. “I do not know what the light was! I have forgotten the light! If only I could remember the light! What is the light? I do not know! I once did! But now I do not know a light! If only I knew-”

    “I’m over here,” said the Radiance.

    “-what the light was! I wonder what is a light! I once basked in a light! Where is the light! Who is the light! When was the light?” The Radiance facepalmed.

    “B,” said the Nightmare King as he floated down the hall carrying a bunch of stupid guitars and a stinky piano. The Seer gasped.

    “WHAT IS LIGHT? WHO IS WHEN? LIGHT!!” shrieked the Seer, “ARE YOU A LIGHT?” The Nightmare King looked confused, then dropped the guitars on her head, picked them up, and walked away. The Seer gasped again.

    “IT IS LIGHT!” she screeched as she picked up a piece of Nightmare Essence and shaped it into a foot. The Radiance rolled her eyes before floating away.

    Summary

    They did it. They reached the top. The light, the blindingly bright light that called them here, beckoned them forward. They obeyed, beginning to leave their dark birthplace behind. But something was missing. They looked back, searching for something, anything. And on the ledge hung a familiar bug. The bug reached out for them, begging for help. And they reached back.

    Summary

    When a simple mistake by an unknowing tribe brings the world to a pause, one Vessel must seal the plaguing light, saving Hallownest from its torment.

    But what if the Hollow Knight had gone back to save the Knight? What if the Pale King was forced to raise Hornet? What would those in his life have done about it? Would Herrah still become a Dreamer? What if there are moths still out there? What if the Radiance could not control the Infection? This AU explores all those questions, and maybe more than that.

    The Radiance isn't the only threat to Hallownest.

    (Most factors in here are based around Mossbag's Hollow Knight theories, though most will be altered due to the nature of the AU. Please send them some love!)

    Summary

    Her brilliant plan was as follows:

    1. Hide right up against the wall next to the door out of the Abyss so the Pale Bellend didn’t see her immediately.

    2. When he walked through the door, waste no time in hitting him in the back of the head, or the back of whatever she could reach with her club to stun him and give her more time to enact step 3.

    3. Run like hell, and pray that getting unexpectedly whacked in the back of the head stunned him long enough for her to make a clean getaway, since he would presumably be coming down here alone.

    4. Make good use of her intangibility to escape and haul ass to the Resting Grounds as fast as possible, putting all her ninja skills to good use in avoiding detection from basically everyone, since she could trust basically no one to not rat her out if the king put a bounty on her head or some shit like that.

    She operated under the KISS method of planning. It was an acronym that stood for ‘Keep It Simple, Stupid.’

    But then again, no plan survived contact with the enemy.

    This was going to suck, wasn't it?

    Summary

    Spring has come.

    For most, the passing of the cold came with a bounty of new growth, and fertile clutches to match. For many mortal bugs, spring was a time to sow new fields and harvest the treats come about by the advent of the warmer weather, a time of festivals and joy and courtship aplenty. Spring was a time of celebration, a time to leave their dwellings to mingle with others that had survived the cold, to feast upon things other than dried nuts, berries, and flesh.

    The White Lady, on the other hand, had different plans.

    The turning of the seasons affected her in more ways than one.

    Summary

    After The Hollow Knight is sealed in the Black Egg Temple, they're forced to live out an uncertain amount of time with The Radiance. At least until the moth god either succeeds in infecting the Pure Vessel, convinces them to go along with her plans, or just gives up entirely from boredom. For now, they're both just reluctantly stuck together for the foreseeable future. Shenanigans, deep talks, and various other things ensue as the two revisit past memories.

    Takes place between the sealing of the Black Egg Temple and the events of the game. More character tags to be added.

    Summary

    They carry names into a new era, an eternal night that cradles its carrier, at times frigidly bright, like the pale moon that lights it up.

    The idea of a sky and moon is absurd, as is most of Ze'mer's folklore. But they like the poetry of it.

    They live on, timeless, beyond death and transformation. There is no shortness of work ahead of Hallownest's newest Court. But they decide they very much like the idea of living one day at a time.

    [Sequel to "Built to be Destroyed". Will not make much if any sense as a standalone. More info on notes and tags]

    Summary

    A small Drabble (I think) series about The Pale King and baby Hornet bonding. Welcome to serotonin land.

    (Chapters won’t be in timeline order, so don’t be surprised if a later chapter happens earlier in the timeline than an earlier chapter)
