But the Lady is faithful, she rides the bright sea
Her bowing is graceful, full of dignity
She speeds ‘cross the water, the wind at her back
And the crew hopes she’ll carry them home

“The Lady,” by Urban Tapestry (Debbie Ridpath Ohi, Allison Durno, and Jodi Krangle)  plus Tom Jeffers on bass, Dave Clement on lead guitar, and Kylea Fulton on pennywhistle

An immigration song…about vampires.

“Dead shopping malls rise like mountains beyond mountains”

White Flint Mall, Bethesda, Md.

Built in 1977 it originally featured 125 stores. Now all but 3 are vacant. Part of the mall is actually demolished. Dave & Busters closed about 5 days before we got here. Walking through the place you get the feeling like you aren’t supposed to be here. Can’t be too great for the remaining 3 businesses.

 

yet another davekat au

so i was talking to @magic-orange-hs and, uh

- it’s urban fantasy
- dave and karkat share an apartment
- karkat is a broke college student and dave’s just your standard broke millennial
- they met because karkat and rose work at the same library
- dave is a necromancer and he likes to reanimate tiny animal skeletons and take care of them in little jars
- karkat has weird unexplored blood bond magic
- both of them think the other is normal and they spend 90% of their energy trying to hide their magical shenanigans from each other
- one day rose shows up
- she’s dripping mysterious black goo on the stairs
- her hair is wild and unkempt and she looks panicked
- she’s holding a shovel, which is covered and dirt and another unidentified substance
- “Dave, Karkat, I need your assistance.”
- both boys’ immediate reaction is “rose no he doesn’t know about the magic thing!”
- rose is like what are you talking about never mind i don’t care, there’s an undead vampire in my trunk and i need both of you
- moment of confusion and then a drawn out series of explanations
- DAVE: so vantas you were out being a blood magic dude the entire time and you just never mentioned it huh
- KARKAT: I’M SORRY? YOU’RE A NECROMANCER? A FUCKING ***NECROMANCER***? SO THAT TIME I SAW A SKELETON MOUSE RUN ACROSS THE LIVING ROOM AND YOU CHASED AFTER IT AND THEN TOLD ME IT WAS A “PERFORMANCE PIECE”, THAT WAS––?
- ROSE: Perhaps we could have this conversation at a later date. Possibly a date where there is not a dead body in my car.
- the body is kanaya, of course, and they resurrect her just fine
- karkat ends up as kanaya’s regular blood supplier
- dave never gets rose to explain what the hell she was doing
- eventually dave asks karkat out via dancing mouse skeleton troupe
- it fails hilariously
- karkat spends half an hour yelling at dave before he says yes
