    Summary

    “Hold that thought,” says Reigen. “The spirit isn’t the protagonist. The spirit is, no offence intended, the villain. The spirit is the obstacle our hero must overcome before reaching his happy ending.”

    “Oh, no,” the spirit says. “No, not at all. I see this story as more of a tragedy. Suffering in life, suffering in death. The futile attempts of one spirit to find happiness, before being snuffed out at the very brink of success. You should emphasise that theme. And I also don’t like the pacing.”

    (Trapped on the job with an unfriendly spirit, Reigen decides to buy himself time by telling it his longest, most thrilling, and most factually accurate story yet.)

    Summary

    As soon as the stomach-churning drop out of FTL is over Karkat's neural link goes absolutely apeshit with notifications. They pile up in his field of vision, oldest to newest, flashing practically every color of the goddamned rainbow. He groans and shoves them all out of his face with a swipe of his hand.

    He submits his landing clearance and TASCo import authorization and flops back into his seat. With a few gestures he flips the image on his viewscreen to his forward facing cameras so he can look out at the expanse of Kuiper Station, tapping the confirmation for the station docking computer to take over the controls.

    He almost can't believe that he's actually back.

    Summary

    To the naked eye they look no different from ordinary trinkets, lucky charms perhaps, simple objects the dead often keep on them in the grave.

    Maybe they are. Maybe it’s Zagreus that makes them hold power.

    (concept: god's keepsakes and blessings change zagreus' appearance and behavior during an escape. thanatos takes notice.)

    Summary

    “So,” he says. Yuri grabs his coffee off the tray without looking before Flynn can even put it down all the way. “What’s new with you?”
    Yuri shrugs. His gaze flickers up to meet Flynn’s, then back down to his croissant. “I told you, not a lot. Same routine as usual.”

    Flynn gets his chat over coffee, but he and Yuri still can't help catching on each others' rough edges.
