Thanks For Playing (3) (No Actual Title Yet) - The next in my post-canon fic series after The Second Time Around. Dirk POV, focus on DirkJake and a natural emphasis on Dirk’s primary relationships in the limbo time spent on Earth C directly after opening the door but before the ectobabies and timeskip from the credits. I think I have mostly settled on making Jane the primary ancillary character in this (Roxy and Karkat played this role in the first one, Roxy and Jade in the second… so it will probably be Roxy and Jane in this one. Look I care a lot about Dirk and Roxy’s relationship okay.) We’ll see what she’s struggling with while Dirk and Jake go on adventures together to try and solve a garishly colored puzzle close to Jade’s heart.
[I have… 4k-ish words written for this and a rough outline for the rest.]
Rafflesia Riddle (OR: The Silver Twlight Sister Versus The Ancient Corpse Queen) - A Rosemary Not-AU Sorta-Meteorstuck (Post-Retcon) wherein Rose and Kanaya dance around their developing relationship by expressing themselves through melodramatic gothic-lovecraftian roleplaying. It’s all about plausible deniability, people. (Until it’s not.)
[This is fully outlined and I’m gonna start on it soon. Current outline is 4 acts with a few chapters each, so it will hopefully clock in somewhere between 12-15 chapters. I am depending heavily on my wife to ensure I finish this project sob I’m terrified of longfic. Vaguely inspired by the Homestuck Harlequin Challenge idea.]
DirkJake PWP(No Title Yet)- Post-Canon, Earth C. Jake is the famous (and famously hot) CEO of SkaiaNet, and he is a very busy guy, ok? He can’t help it if he has a lot of demands on his time. His mysterious tagalong boyfriend is just gonna have to chill out. Follow him around for awhile. Attend a few press conferences, watch a few advertising reels, become increasingly frustrated while Jake finds ways to cleverly and covertly tease him over the crowd of adoring public between them, you know how it is.
[I have this outlined and by that I mean I wrote a shitpost that could serve as a rough outline]
Dirk/Jake/Brain Ghost Dirk One-Shot (No Title Yet) - Post-Canon, Earth C. Jake’s increasing control over his Hope powers results in a fascinating problem that might not really be a problem at all but hahaha yeah no it’s definitely a problem we just haven’t figured out where it is on the Sliding Scale Of Problems yet because let’s face it, this situation is REALLY CONFUSING FOR EVERYONE INVOLVED.
[I have this half written, it’s about 5k words so far. I’m KINDA STUCK on it right now but hoping to pick it up again soon.]
Davekat PWP (No Title Yet) - Meteorstuck, Post-Retcon, Dream Karkat on the meteor inevitably seeks Dave and his sleeping self out because what the fuck else is he going to do and whoops everyone has an aversion to open displays of affection and suffers from cripplingly low self esteem so I guess this is gonna be really awkward isn’t it
[I have like 8k words written on this and I swear to god I will finish it one day]
ANOTHER DaveKat PWP (Still No Title Yet)- Post-Canon, Earth C, Dave convinces Karkat to sext with him (ironically of course) but Karkat doesn’t do anything god damn ironically, Dave, you hopeless fool. (Dave is trapped in a prison of his own making and it is delightful, I hope.)
[This is another “I have an outline and by outline I mean a shitpost that spawned this entire idea” one but I currently still do intend to write it because every time I think about it I laugh up my own fucking sleeve forever.]
Hex already tagged everyone I’d tag so I’m not gonna tag anyone >:[
Oh and I might still write a trickster dirkjake thing because I want to but I have done zero work on it yet (BUT I WANT TO)
I put all the images together into one big post, now, the images aren’t HQ, i had to resize them down, if you want to see them full quality i made an imgur album for them.
I also put some sort of morale at the end, in text form, saying what was going through my mind while narrating this story, what means to me and what i wanted to tell or make people feel in this seemingly empty and purely edonistic comic. So yeah, check it out. And if you already did I hope you enjoyed it, it makes me really happy that a personal project like this got noticed as much as it did ;v;
So I stopped by my local indie bookstore today, to see if I could pick up a copy of The Woman Who Rides Like A Man for cheap - it’s my least favorite of the Alanna books, but it’s the only one I don’t own, and the completist in me gets ridiculously put out at the thought of rereading only three books of the series.
AND THIS IS THE COVER. I JUST, I DON’T, WHAT. I honestly cannot express my dismay that somebody, somewhere, thought it was appropriate to use this picture - this shitty, ugly picture - as a cover for a book about a girl who kicks ass and takes names.
