Art by tumblr user gamzee, for a fic-pic trade of epicly Gamkar proportions. eue This fic is a sequel to another short fic I once wrote, which is available through the AO3 link below!  

For the sibling-fic to this one, where I wrote a fic for art that Momo made, go HERE!  (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, DANG THAT ART *fans self*)  

Happy reading! :D

On AO3: [With Pale Voice and Trembling Hand]

You’re going to go fucking insane.

That’s what’s going to happen; your creepy fucked-up pan is going to overheat until it comes pumping out through your auricular sponge-clots and you’re going to do something completely inappropriate like roll over and shit on the floor or do a funny dance and combust.

Heavy In Your Arms - This Killing Time

[tag] [AO3]

[previous part: Over the Waterfall

[chapter I: Only To Condemn] [chapter II: Both Your Heart And Mine] [chapter III: This Killing Time] [chapter IV: here]

Note: you do not have to read the entire series to understand this part, although if you’re not up to date on the series you might be kind of confused by Emperor Tavros and Religious Leader Karkat and the fracas of Gamzee and Eridan’s backstories…

Regardless of the rest of the series, though, I would read Over the Waterfall, for important context. :) 

Chapter 4: Strong Enough To Stand

There are coldbloods in the crowd.  You should’ve been expecting that, but you still can’t get used to the idea there are people who care this is happening.

Fuck, if it comes to that you still can’t believe that this is happening at all.

Splickedyhatting: Word-By-Word Summaries

Fun suggested game: with 1+ other people, make a fanfiction summary for a theoretical fic by trading off words one word at a time.  Here are some of ours.  We are definitely not writing them, so if they pique your interest, feel free.  Just link us when you’re done! :D

  1. If everybody were the opposite of their parents, Dave would not ever have gone to the puppet store.  But he did.
  2. Karkat doesn’t take prisoners.  Instead…he takes lovers.
  3. Sleeping dragons should not be awakened.  Rose Lalonde learns this at her own risk when she asks her ashen quadrantmates why they hate each other.
  4. Paradox space has many universes, but only in one has everything gone completely right for Eridan Ampora. This is that universe.
  5. So, you haven’t heard about the scandal involving heiress Feferi Peixes and her new bodyguard, a lowblood named Sollux Captor with no respect for his betters.  Well let me tell you, this is so so juicy.
  6. In the middle of a war, a single soldier can make all the difference by making a tremendous effort to kill the general.  But it’s not the general of his enemy he wants to kill.  (Oh god that’s awkward writing right there)
  7. Blind and alone, Gamzee wanders Earth, searching for some sign he deserves to live.  After he finally encounters somebody from his previous life, everything he knew starts to unravel.  
  8. The queen of the Combat and Defense Squad discovers a traitor in her carefully-chosen battalion.  But the spy makes a very interesting offer; this is the story of the most painful romance ever recorded, and the aftermath of true hate.
  9. Harassment comes back around in this gripping tale of romance and betrayal and revenge and boobs and more boobs.  With a vampire, and a construction worker named Cronus Ampora.
  10. Doctors and nurses sometimes forget that trolls need their moirails as much as a human needs their family.  Getting a moirail into the hospital is the hardest job nurse Harley has ever accomplished.  
  11. On his seventeenth birthday, Jake English finally caves and kisses all his friends.  Some of them start getting the wrong impression and Jake ends up surrounded by amorous attentions as he struggles with a mysterious internet stalker who wants him to choose one cool bro in particular.  
  12. There’s a monster under Roxy Lalonde’s bed.  It’s kinda cute and it tells her stories about clowns.  Her sister Rose thinks it should be destroyed, but Roxy knows her new friend would never hurt her.
  13. John needs something real to hold on to in the aftermath of his father’s death.  When a boy named Dave and a girl named Rose find him having a panic attack in the cemetery, they take him in and introduce him to their unusual family.  Can John heal with their help?
  14. Losing the biggest game of Tavros’s life wasn’t the worst part of his day.  The worst part was the way his father remarried the mother of his opponent.
  15. Only one sign has ever been given to herald the coming of an heir to the holy imperial theocracy.  And this sign was never seen by unsanctified eyes.  So when the church decides to name a successor nobody knows why they have chosen a mutant. 
  16. Jane Crocker has secrets which she has only told to one person.  When that person becomes her enemy, she will face a threat and discover some secrets are not meant to be told.  
  17. Peace is a privilege, bought by the blood shed from the heart of an innocent man.  Kankri Vantas knows this well, and he understands that even if he fights it, death is coming. After he dies though, he discovers that his true purpose is greater than he imagined.
  18. Caliborn discovers his passion for heavy metal and takes a roadtrip looking for band members.  Nobody expects him to succeed, least of all his sister.  But one after another, strange green men begin to audition.  Can Caliborn form the greatest rock band in history?  Probably not.  But he will try, goddammit.  
  19.  Skateboarding was very important to Mituna once upon a time, but after he gets recruited as a helmsman he discovers that starships are even more rad to do flips with.
  20. Pain can effect your judgement for better or worse.  Pleasure on the other hand, always effects it for the worst.  Orphaner Dualscar will discover this the hard way when he falls deeply in hate with a powerful young psychic.  Unfortunately she’s dead.

What The Hell is Diamonds-And-Stars Gamzee Doing With His Life–a triptych.  

(it’s hard when you’re a pale porn star and nobody bothers to tell you.  It’s hard and literally nobody else has ever been uninformed and gullible enough to end up in that situation before, so nobody understands.)

Just Not Fair [gift fic]

So I prompted Quilly for a headcanon meme with “Gamzee - Naked” and this is what I got back (abridged for post length reasons):

He’s all bones until he hits his final molt/growth spurt. So suddenly he reaches maturity and people get a load of all that delicious new muscle mass (because SUDDENLY SWIM PARTY or SHIRT-SHREDDING INCIDENT), it’s a bit…confusing…for everyone who’s used to Skeleton Gamzee. A collective “oh no he’s hot” moment.

*takes the opportunity for shameless fanservice fic*  Universe with alpha and beta kids, plus Karkat’s team of trolls.  No dancestors, sorry.  Aftermath of a highschool AU, basically.


The whole gang splits up after high school.

((4 AM gamkar short fic copied over from suckedylit to be rebloggable by request)) ((<>))

You kiss your best friend for the first time sitting up late in your dorm room together–he’s colored all your nails in with sharpie and his laptop is playing something corny and ancient you don’t recognize and you lean over and kiss him.

oh and also

because ldefix is such a sweetie and has been feeling down about her art recently and because anybody who knows Ide knows her fav. pairing and b/c I have seen multiple posts about how she wants every cheesy cliche overdone Gamtav scenario ever…

here Ide have some cheesy cliche overdone Gamtav with bonus background Gamkar. I stole the general post-game multi-world reincarnation idea from the wonderful amaranthinecanicular and their wonderful fic The Days We Might Have Seen because it was convenient for the story structure.  Ran, I apologize.  You definitely need not be associated with this schmoopy awfulness unless you want to be.

First time you wake up after everything is all said and done, first thing you do is try to run.

trueluck asked:

hopefully you can get some good inspiration! I'm gonna do a combo: A favorite character of yours to draw roughed-up/badass, and if you want to do another bit, being comforted/patched-up by another character. c:

combining this request with a request from the stream!  paranoidkitsune there is your smallzee Gamkar!  :)  For Those Below is in need of more art and I’m glad of the excuse.  eue

Karkat probably got in a fight because of his tiny moirail.  *pets idiot boys*


Chapter 6: stay in at night

Full color illustrations oh lord I’m never doing that again jegus on the other hand DAT NATURE. Presenting The God Of Crawling Things which is inaccurate because actually most of his bugs fly, but that title was taken by the bird-god.  Human naming schemes are so inaccurate and inefficient.

Dedicated to Toasty, who stayed up late making art with me while I drew like billions of flowers and she illustrated my projects for me and sent me music.  Good twin.  Best friend. <3  (And also Jackdad for tipping the vote because it was tied and if he hadn’t voted Invincible Summer this wouldn’t have gotten done last night, so yeah. :))

Invincible Summer: [AO3] [tag]

You miss him.

…Just figured out that spoken in full Gamzee’s title would have been ‘Lis Amhórrigha Forachidhreae dhean Aona Ahmóruhaell iy Aleire Saldheires, Ahmór-Sarat Gamzee dhean-Makaraforachhight.

But most people just addressed him as ‘Idhre’ or ‘Lord Makara’ because who wants to go through all of that every time.  :/



Chapter 8: if i was king

So much paleness in this chapter.  I am pleased.    

Invincible Summer: [AO3] [tag]

The first thing you’re aware of is pain.

Not pain from any part of you—forest pain, and some part of you tells you it’s better than it was even though you can’t quite remember yet what ‘it’ was or why it hurt at all.

anonymous asked:

I just read your thing in SotW about how everyone think Gamzee is crazy scary but then they interview him and everyone really confused, I was wondering if we could get a little look at that? Because it sounds hilarious XD

I’m going to skip around a little, because I’m working on other projects, and I don’t have too much time to write the entire thing—but I’ll do the fun parts. XD

“Oh my god KK look at this.”  Sollux spins his computer around and you groan and pry yourself up off the bed, all your bruises yelling at you.  You have to squint at the screen, and even with Sollux there you’re tired enough the words come in and out of focus, meanings all blurry and unsure in your head.  "—forget it.  Here, I’ll just read it.“

uniquepain asked:

saviors!verse, kurloz's first thoughts on gamzee :3 I feel like the mime nerd needs more love, also Makara interactions are great

He is not small but he wishes he were, you can see how he stands and the motherfucking HARM that has been DONE to him makes your powers seethe and whisper unto you.  But instead you make introduction and pleasantry, and see your other self’s face flash behind his eyes whenever you move incautious.

He is like you and not like you and hurt in ways you have not been, and you decide when he meets your eyes with his that if it takes you your whole goddamn motherfucking life one day he will see you for you, not his father, and he will not flinch from your hand.

anonymous asked:

Gamzee and karkat. Saviors au. First time public display of affection?

You’re walking survival class to tactics when you feel Gamzee thinking something he doesn’t want to ask.

“No, uh,” he says when you look at him with the question in your brain, and his face starts going all pink up around the ears– “no, I just…just a thing I–kids around school, like, fuck, ‘s not important…”

You walk into class holding his hand, and he’s scared and nervous and so happy he can’t stop smiling and if doing this for him makes him feel so happy every time you think you might never let go.

It would appear that being stressed means I work on this AU, so in the wake of a stressful few days, have some more Satyr<>spirit shenanigans. =w=

comet-me-space-puns asked:

Threshie au! First time Condy realized she was actually seriously liking this new threshecutioner and didn't want to cull him or get bored of him like any others that she had messed with!

His fingers must have been all clumsy from emotion or some shit, because you ain’t who he thinks he’s calling and the first thing you hear is “–GAMZEE, Gamzee, Ryanne and Rochel BROKE UP oh my god thirty seasons they were together THIRTY SEASONS,” and something that sounds a lot like sobbing in between words that don’t make a lick of coddamn sense.

It’s not until your little nubby boy winds down to incoherent mumbling and “makes you promise” to show up at his place with something cold and sweet and a bunch of big blankets (and when you say ‘prawnmise’ you mean he tells his moirail to do it, asks you/him to promise and then hangs up) you realize you just listened to the whole goddamn spiel and you’re just sittin’ there with a dumb li’l smile on your face.


wrenspaperwings asked:

o.o I love the new expressions (lets be honest I love ginger gamzee) but yea you mentioned Alternate endings and I was wondering if there was any way maybe we could go into the au idea from SotW where karkat really just cant see cause gamzee is like out in the middle of nowhere.

(I’m so not writing the entire epic saga of this AU, but I can write some key moments mostly Gamkar, sure! :D  But it’s gonna be HELLA DEPRESSING)

You’re in a back alley of some tiny, fucked up town when someone pisses off the empress.

You don’t know who, or where—maybe it’s not even a specific person, maybe she’s just pissed off today—but you feel the wave of terror roll over you and you lose yourself in it, let yourself go and sink down into your mind.
