    Summary

    (Keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer)
    /////
    He gets one earplug loose, its enough.
    “Calm down, hold still,” Siren croons, and Tubbo has no choice but to obey.
    His muscles go slack, his legs stop kicking.
    Siren stares down at him, his eyes wide, shocked, horrified.
    “You’re a fucking child."

    Part of the Dumpster Verse, read the others first

    Summary

    The Nether is rarely silent, with grunts and huffs from bastionmates coming even in the dead of night. The ghasts never stop screaming. The sows would laugh at him the next morning when he complained about how it hurt his ears, and they’d tell him that, when he became a boar, the screams would sound like music to his ears. 

    The Colosseum is somewhat similar. The screams aren’t high-pitched and gratey, but they echo in his ears at night when he tries to sleep. (fun fact: he doesn’t sleep much)

    Summary

    Quackity watches Schlatt go down, and thinks, nothing will change.

    The bottle falls out of his hand first, and then his fingers seize, clenching around thin air, grappling for something – anything –

    And Schlatt chokes, face purpling, perspiration beading at his hairline, and nobody moves forward to help. Later, after the day is over and the country is scarred and everybody’s hearts have shattered just a little more, this will be the moment nobody remembers, the moment nobody focuses on, but Schlatt’s face crumples and takes a knee to the floor and dies, right there, and Quackity watches it happen.

    Quackity watches Schlatt die, and he knows then and there that nothing will change.

    He’ll still have to hide.

    or, five times quackity hid his wings from his fiancés, and one time he didn't.

    Summary

    He glances at the guards around him.
    “Eyes down!” one of them barks. It is not the one who likes Phil.
    Phil returns his eyes to the floor. He can see the chains around his waist, connected to stiff poles. Like those catch poles you’d see on animal rescue shows.
    Or Phil assumes that you would see them. Its been five years. Maybe they’ve found something better.
    The catch-pole comparison used to bother him. He used to bristle at the thought of being treated like an animal. It is no less galling now, but he is...used to it.
    He is what the guards refer to as “wild caught." He’s used to being dehumanized.
    After all, he isn’t human, not to the people in charge, not to the Vault. The Vault contains two things: guards, and threats.
    Phil is a threat.
