Tod Gets Sent a Fanfiction: "kawaii yaoi"

So I got linked to this fic by a friend who has long lived in the wonderful light of Balto, may He long give sustenance to his children.

I witnessed another friend reading it and watched as they slowly lost their senses.

Naturally, I thought I should give it the FFF treatment, or as close as I could give.

If you want to read along, feel free to do so here, after thoroughly preparing yourselves. http://archiveofourown.org/works/268019/chapters/421530

So now, without further ado, "kawaii yaoi"

Summary:
Karkat has a crush on the cute boy at the bagel shop.

Notes:

whoop

kink meme request

ollies out bitches

I'm honestly not sure what this means, but someone out there must know.

Chapter 1: 1

How descriptive

You study your hands, shakingly tracing the outline of congealed blood with your eyes. Your body is so empty.

god fuck kill me kill me please god gore dead fuck just let me die

I will be quite honest, of all the things I was expecting of something called "kawaii yaoi," this was pretty far down on the list.

Everything is empty.

shit I can smell you I can smell you so good fuck me kill me burn me eat me

Everything.

go get the gun

I need to go refresh myself on the meaning of kawaii

You choke back a sob, involuntarily inhaling the rancid scent of rotting flesh. You roll over your bed and vomit, coating yourself and your belongings in curdled yellow discharge. It seems fitting. It seems beautiful.

You lay in your own filth. You stare at the ceiling. You start crying again.

You keep reading, regardless.

GET THE GUN GET THE GUN GET THE GUN YOU’RE USELESS YOU’RE HORRIBLE YOU’RE UGLY YOU’RE SHIT BLOW YOUR FUCKING BRAINS OUT YOU FUCKING STUPID WASTE OF AIR GETT H E GU N

You slam both hands on either side of your head and shriek like a beautiful young girl getting her low intestine pulled out, not too fast now don’t you want to see the look on her face as she chokes on her own bile and dies she dies and the last thing she sees is you isn’t that what you want it is so what are you waiting for go get it go get it get it get it GET THE GUN

Foreshadowing? I hope not.

You sit up abruptly. Everything is quiet. You are in your room. Your room is a good place. It’s your favorite place. All your favorite things are in here. You release a sigh heavily, feeling a lot better all of a sudden. You think it’s about time you got that gun. You stand and walk towards the bathroom, accidentally stepping in the head. A momentary surge of panic takes you and you scream again.

It’s transformed back already.

Yeah, I don't know either. Something's happening, that much is for sure.

You know why this happened don’t you you worthless sack of shit you didn’t do it right again aGAIN YOU FUCKING WORTHLESS

Your heart beats faster. On your floor where a young woman had lain, disemboweled and perfect, each organ laid side by side organized in just the right pattern and her face just the right color and her body just the right shape laid





nothing.

I think we're Hannibal Lecter.

You feel your head smash of its own accord against a wall, your own fist pummeling your face and you don’t even try to stop it because you know you deserve it and, god, there’s blood everywhere again but it’s the wrong fucking one and

GET THE GUN

You’re in the bathroom. You see your own reflection, bleeding and haunted, gushing everywhere is the proof of your own failure, god how you just want it all to end.

Actually I don't know, Hannibal was more stable than this.

You see yourself smile.

Behind its back is the bringer of your retribution, your savior, your hero.

I feel reminded of the old days of Slenderman blogs.

You watch yourself place it in your mouth and you both grin in unison. You chuckle at yourself from behind the mirror, tipping your hat at the person staring back at you. Everything is going to be okay.

You pull the trigger.

Image
Are you going to be okay?

----

Your name is Karkat Vantas and you are going to get a fucking bagel.

Ohhhhhh, it was a flashforward. That makes it better.

Karkat does not like bagels.

Wait, are we in the second or third person?

He hates them. Bagels are shit. He wants to personally throttle every bagel in existence for having the audacity to be an actual bagel. He also goes out of his way every day to go to the bagel shop eight blocks away from his house.

I... guess we're in the third person?

“Sup.”

Karkat is kind enough to acknowledge the greeter at the counter with the bird.

I keep imagining Karkat as one of those burly Russian men who refuses to address themselves in the first person.

"Karkat cares not for your puny American bagels, Karkat only want good Russian bread."

This is a fairly new bagel shop. It’s also a fairly small bagel shop, and small is putting it lightly, as it’s only big enough to have two employees, both of which own the thing. One works cash and one bakes. They alternate every other day. He doesn’t know if they are brothers. He really hopes not.

Because that would make this an incest fic, and they can't have that.

“You ready for another round of order the first thing you see on the menu only to try and can the shit immediately after Mister Vantas,” the ass at the counter says.

I would call him an ass too if I had to parse that sentence in a bagel shop.

He’s working cash today. Fuck.

Careful what you wish for, Vladimir.

“Shut the fuck up you for one goddamn second you wretched bile sack of a person. Why’s the other guy in the back today? He was in the back yesterday!”

"And I want to be in HIS back!"

“Sorry bro. Your eye candy got a bit fucked in the head last night by some jackasses who thought it’d be fun to knock around a guy who makes bagels for a living. His face looks like a hamburger. Honest to god he shouldn’t have even come in today, but part of the Egbert charm is being mind-bogglingly stupid. He ain’t even coming to put up fresh bagels for you to not eat, his face is so wrecked. Looks like it’s you and me, buckaroo.”

Karkat opened his mouth. And then he closed it. And then he opened it again.

Then he put his left foot in, he put his left foot out
He put his left foot in, and he shook it all about.

“So his name is Egbert?”

The self-satisfied smirk fell off of the cashier’s face like a bag of rocks. “Fuck. Great. Now you’re gonna go off and facebook stalk his ass and make versions of you both in The Sims so you both can kiss aren’t you you sick bagel-trashing fuck oh.”

Karkat had already walked briskly out of the store, and was pulling out his phone. He had facebook stalking to do and a livejournal to update.

Hoo boy, this'll end well.

--

Your name is John Egbert and your hands are shaking. You don’t even like bagels.

And now you're back in second person, ready to end the first chapter with a rousing cliffhanger of bagelboy stalking.

There's 11 chapters left to go, don't think I'll stop here.

Re: Tod Gets Sent a Fanfiction: "kawaii yaoi"

Chapter 2: 2

Summary:

have some more yaoi

If only we had some to enjoy in the first chapter.

John Egbert woke up on the bathroom floor yesterday, covered in his own blood.

He did not wake up of his own accord.

Just like you're not reading this of YOUR own accord!

“God DAMN it, you stupid fuck, wake up wake up wake up! Hey! John! JOHN! Egbert, I swear to christ if you die on me I am going to—“

John’s eyes fluttered open to see his roommate hovering over him, shaking him, teeth gritted, eyebrows drawn tightly into a knot.

Score one for the stalker, they are NOT related.

“Dave…?”

Dave jumped back, almost frightened, then slunk back down to John’s level. He makes a move as if to touch him, but then pulls his arm back.

“John, what the hell happened to you?”

The fic happened, duh.

John blinks. His head hurts. Dave raises his hand and snaps his fingers impatiently in front of John’s face.

“Yo. Egbert. Are you listening to me? Did you get jumped? Fuck, you got jumped, didn’t you? Holy—how many fingers am I holding up?”

John grimaces. “Uh, three?”

Dave’s expression softens and he puts his hand down. “Okay. Good. We need to get you to a hospital.”

“..what?”

A hospital, it's a place with doctors and surgeons and blood. You're the one who likes blood, right?

“A fucking hospital Egbert, you look like you tried to fight a train with your face and a pack of shitty bubblegum from the Dollar General!”

Eh, I like mine better.

The throbbing in his head becomes loud enough to drown out Dave’s voice until it sounds like the whole world is underwater. What happened last night? Desaturated images with low opacity float along the top of his memory, each one fuzzier than the last. His head feels bloated and swollen.

John's brain is a hipster's instagram

“Dave, what time is it?”

“It’s—what? It’s six-thirty. Why?”

“Six—Dave! Shop opens in half an hour!” He tries to stand, clutching the side of a wall for support. His body feels stiff.

If you know what I mean, hohohoho

“Sho—John, you don’t honestly think we’re going in to work today, do you?” Dave gives him a look like he’s about to make John count his fingers again.

I think the author is trying to go for natural-sounding dialogue, but I just can't think of what that initial "Sho" was segueing into.

“That’s our only source of income, Dave! Yes, I think we’re going into work! I’m fine, okay?” John starts to leave the bathroom, the world slipping slightly out of focus again. His footsteps echo. Everything feels strange.

This is exactly the kind of mindset you want when you go into work.

this is your fault fix it fix it

Oh, this again

The walls all feel like skin, crusted and peeling. The walls are skin. They have always been skin

plunge your fists in deep and fuck the womb with your fingers

Please don't fist the walls

“Are you sure you’re okay, dude?” Dave is watching John trace patterns in the wall with his fingers. One eye is swollen shut, and his teeth are stained with blood. He’s grinning.

Oh my god he's actually considering it

He doesn’t want to admit it, but this isn’t the first time he’s found John like this.

“I really don’t want you going in to work, dude. Your face is a fucking waffle maker and you shouldn’t have to deal with baking when you look this bad.”

John grimaces at the mention of a waffle maker. He hates waffles. He hates bagels too. He hates bread.

He hates starch. He hates sugar. He hates carbon atoms.

“I’m going in.”

Please don't, the walls don't deserve this.

“…okay, but if you pass out on me, I’m calling an ambulance. Deal?”

John smiles. “Deal.”

He doesn’t want to remember.

Story of my life

--

John was in the back today.

Dave decided that it probably wasn’t a good idea for John to work cash, because he might scare the customers. John didn’t mind. He wasn’t feeling well.

He's probably more okay talking to the bread at this point anyway

He hands slowly kneaded the bread, ghosting over the curvature of the many lines, stretching it slowly. The dough had great elasticity and John watched mesmerized as strands of dough trailed off with his hand. The strands reached their breaking point and dropped on the table. John stared as the stray bread lines entwined within each other, hatching and crossing and hatching impossibly, over and over and spinning and sobbing and crying and laughing

There was a vortex at the end of the tunnel. It was twinkling enticingly up at John. Little beams of light circled around him peacefully, bending to his will. John smiled softly. He pressed a finger up against one. This must be what god feels like.

That's some fucking bread

there is no god

Look down, now back up, your bread is Nietzsche

The light was sucking at his finger, pulling at his skin, dissolving the matter around him and folding his bones inside of themselves and god it hurt so bad there was blood dripping down his shirt again and it’s the wrong one

Image

It's okay friend, knowing what I know, you'll be Slenderized soon enough.

“John. Are you okay?”

John looked up dazedly. “What?”

“You’ve stood there with your finger stuck in the dough for ten minutes.”

John looked down. “Oh.” He took his finger out.

He put his finger in, he put his finger out.
He put his finger in, and he shook it all about.
He did the Hokey Pokey and he masturbated a bread's womb...

Dave crinkles his face from behind his sunglasses and opens his mouth like he’s about to say something. He doesn’t. He walks away slowly, casting John looks over his shoulder.

That's what it's all about!!

John starts to form the dough into donut shapes, feeling sick. He hates doing the baking. It’s disgusting.

John has an intense hatred of torus shapes

“He isn’t coming back.”

John looks over, startled. Leaning casually against the far kitchen wall was the bagel shop’s best customer: Karkat Vantas.

Image

“How—“

My guess is the door.

Karkat walks closer, getting in John’s personal space. He leans in, slowly taking a lock of John’s hair and twirling it in his fingers uninterestedly. “He hates you. We all do, you know.”

Can't you just FEEL the romantic tension in the air?

John shivered, whimpering. He backed up against a wall. “S—stay back—“

Karkat shoved him rulthfully against the cool metal of the wall behind him. His face is impassive. “He told me why, you know. Before he hung himself.” The fingers in John’s hair became a hand and gripped at the back of John’s head lightly. Another hand trailed down John’s stomach and traced the hem of his jeans. “It was because of you.”

He what now

Also, what the hell does "rulthfully" mean?

“S—stop—I’m n-n-n-not—no—“

“You do everything wrong, John.” Karkat leaned forward and pressed his nose to John’s neck, smelling audibly. “You’re disgusting.”

John started sobbing, his shoulders heaving and shaking with the force of it.

Now I'm not a psychologist, but I THINK maybe there's some manipulation going on here

Karkat breathed hotly on John, pulling back to look him in the eyes. “He could never be proud of you, John. He lied. He did it to hurt you.” Karkat placed his fingers gently on John’s lips. Tears were streaming down his face. He could barely see. “He told me to hurt you too, you know. Do you want to know how?”

Uhhhhhhh

“N-n-n-n-no p-p-please—“

“By killing you.” He shoved his hand up into his mouth and broke the skull, shattering bits everywhere as his fingered John’s grey matter, pushing and pulling and twisting and another hand reached up to gouge into his eyesockets, letting forth another surge of blood as the fingers fucked his mangled eyes—

Image

“JOHN! God, John, oh god, it’s okay I promise, please stop, Jesus, please—“ Arms were cradling him, rocking him back and forth.

He was still screaming fifteen minutes later. It took him three hours to stop crying.

Then he was laughing.

He needed to get the gun.

I think that was a hallucination? In that case, at least we know the two of them share feelings for one another.

What KIND of feelings are another question entirely.

---

Your name is Karkat Vantas and you are making versions of yourself and Egbert in The Sims so you can kiss.

Karkat you gay nerd

It was three in the morning.

It's okay Karkat, Sims addiction happens to the best of us.

Karkat was maxing out his own muscles in the Sim Creator when “Baby Got Back” sung out from his jacket pocket. Karkat flipped his phone out and answered.

There are so many things to point out here I honestly can't think where to start.

“What.”

“Have you theen Gamthzee lately?”

Oh god textualized lisps

Karkat groaned and pushed away from his computer.

Honestly I did exactly the same thing right there

“No, I haven’t seen Gamzee lately, I’m not his fucking mom. I’m sure he can take care of himself for a couple weeks without kicking the proverbial bucket, Sol.” He still didn’t have enough muscles yet. He’d have to go back and add that custom skin he downloaded with all the pecs.

He needed more pecs. At least five of them.

“Uh, no, he can’t, idiot. That’th why you’re supposed to check up on him!”

Karkat stopped playing his game long enough to glare through the phone. “And since when was I bestowed upon the ever-holy duty of cleaning up a crack addict’s vomit?”

Everyone's messed up! You're messed up! I'm messed up!

“Thinth you became hith friend, you thelfith fuck! Or can’t you find any time in your bagel-boy-filled theduale anymore to help out your betht friend?!”

Image

Karkat blushed a deep color. “He’s not my best friend, you asslicking fucktard. You are. He’s more like a stoned little brother.”

“Oh, tho you don’t deny that you’ve been vithiting that guy at the bagel thop thtill?”

Karkat blushed, if it was possible, even harder. He had been picking out “Egbert Guy’s” outfit and his mouse had been poised over a sultry maid’s gettup. He hastily moved his mouse somewhere else. “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

Sadly, we do

“Bullthit. I know you’re obthethed with him, I wath there when we went to the bagel place for the firtht time, remember?”

He remembered.

Are we going to get a flashback sequence now?

--
“God fucking damn it Sol, we’re so close to my apartment, I can just get you something to eat there. I don’t want to spend my hard earned money on stupidass shit that I have at home!”

“You don’t have bagelth at your plathe, KK. Bethideth, it’s my birthday.”

Damn it all to hell

Karkat groaned. “Fine. But I’m not having any.”

“Yeth you are.”

“What the fuck, Sollux, why.”

“It’th my birthday. I’m getting you back for forth feeding me when I’m in one of my deprethive thtates.”

Whatever that translates to, I'm glad he did that to you.

“I don’t like bagels.”

“I don’t like thoup.”

I don't like you

“God, I hate you.”

Thank you Karkat

Sollux just chuckled and pushed him inside.

The guy working cash was a guy with a massive overbite and a weak smile. He also had bags under his eyes similar to Karkat’s, he noted mutely. Not that it mattered.

You don't think it matters? Just wait a few chapters, I'm CERTAIN it'll matter.

“Yeah, listen, we just want a couple of bagels, okay, and also—do you guys have tea here?”

“Um, we have chai and green.”

“Yeah, I’ll take the chai. What kind of bagel would you like, princess?” He shot Sollux a deadly look.

“Thetheme theed, thweetheart.”

This lisp will be the death of me long before the skullfucking will.

“Okay, that and a—“

Sollux grinned. “And a pumpernickel for grumpy here.”

Karkat was scathing. “Are you fucking kidding me? I hate shit with seeds! I am not eating that!”

“Pumpernickel and a thetheme. That and KK’s chai.”

“No! God! If I’m getting anything, it’s a plain! And that is a HUGE if.”

The cashier looked amused. “Alright, well, there’s a new batch of bagels almost out of the oven, would you want to wait a couple of minutes and get the fresh ones instead of these, Kaykay?”

Dear god, the cutesy names have begun

Karkat gritted his teeth menacingly. “My name is not Kaykay, asshole. It’s Karkat. Karkat Vantas. And no.”

“He meanth yeth.”

He actually meant "yeti." He wants a full yeti.

“Hehe, alright. Well, we’ve got a couple of seats in the back if you want to sit down.”

Karkat did not need any more persuasion than that. He stomped off before the young man had finished speaking.

Clearly it's true love

After about five minutes of pointless bickering, the cashier walked over with a tray, setting it down.

Karkat could not believe his eyes.

The cashier had a penis the size of Massachusetts. And then they fucked.

“Holy shit, are you really that stupid? Did I not JUST SAY NO PUMPERNICKEL? Do you even KNOW how to listen? Good GOD, is the wax in your ears so deep seated that it’s reached all the way through your thick skull and coated your brain? NO FUCKING PUMPERNICKEL. HOW HARD IS THAT. HOW. HARD.”

The messy-haired idiot actually had the gumption to snicker at this, glancing slyly at Sollux. Did he—had he really…

“DID YOU FUCKING DO THIS ON PURPOSE?!”

He giggled.

Is this how assholes flirt with one another?

Karkat could not believe what he was hearing. No one had ever purposefully tried to piss him off without knowing him first. No one.

His face heated and his knuckles turned white. “GET. ME. A. PLAIN. BAGEL. YOU. WORTHLESS. SHITSTAIN.”

Oh look, they're BOTH flirting!

“My bad! I’ll be right back.”

Karkat watched him go, mesmerized.

Finally, some hints at honest-to-god yaoi

What had just happened?

He left? To go get you a bagel? What were you expecting?

“Did he just do what I thought he did?”

“Heheheh. Funny guy.”

Karkat turned his head incredulously, but the cashier had already returned with another bagel.

“Sorry about that, Karkat! I was a little mixed up.”

See?

Karkat was about to roll his eyes and reply scathingly to this when he saw what the guy had placed in front of him. It was the same pumpernickel bagel from before, except it looked like the shaggy haired kid had poured a whole package of raw pumpernickel seeds over the entire thing, to the point of some actually falling over the sides and on to the table. Karkat’s jaw nearly fell clean off his face. He looked up at the cashier, speechless. The guy was clutching his sides and biting his lip, pink in the face, absolutely shaking from poorly concealed mirth.

Just like I said would happen, he came with another bagel.

He had never been more turned on his life.

John REALLY likes his pranks.

---

“Whatever. It isn’t like I’m going there every day or something.”

“Bullthit, you totally are, you romantic dweeb. Do you know his name yet?”

Karkat paused. “…Egbert.”

“Egbert? Ith that a firtht or latht name?”

Die in a hole

“Uh.” You had searched for an Egbert on facebook in your area, and was lucky enough to only turn up one result. However, upon clicking the name, Karkat was dismayed to find all of his pictures were of overused unfunny internet memes, so there was no way of telling if it was the right Egbert or not. Karkat was warry of friending people he wasn’t sure he knew. He didn’t want those “internet people” getting ahold of his very important personal information and status updates. “…last.”

You shifted from a second person view to a third person view within a paragraph. There wasn't even a line break to draw attention away from it.

Goddammit.

“Tho you don’t know his first name.”

“Sollux, go the fuck to sleep. I’ll check up on Gamz tomorrow, okay? I promise.”

“You’d better. I’ll know if you didn’t.”

His lisp tells him all

“Go to sleep, stupid.”

“Fine. G’night, KK.”

“Night.”

He hung up the phone.

Thank Christ

Karkat hesitated momentarily before choosing the maid’s outfit.

---
Your name is John Egbert and every night you pray for death.

Don't worry, it's the Sims. If you're not dead within a week Karkat's doing it wrong

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chapter 3: 3

Summary:

this is a bagel yaoi about karkat's hot anime life

You know, I'm beginning to think these summaries aren't truly sincere.

John did not go into work for three days.

Because Karkat deleted the door.

Again.

Every night Dave would come home to find John staring at himself in the bathroom, covered in new bruises and scratches. Dave would sit with him in their living room and talk to him about his day, talk about how some hot chick came in an ordered a big-ass bagel, talk about how shitty the music on the radio was, talk about how hungry he is and order a pizza, watch John not eat the pizza, order Chinese and watch John not eat that either, talk about anything to fill the silence that is John sitting there, wordlessly, looking like death and quietly getting thinner.

Man, Dave does sure love watching that food not get eaten by John.

The next day is different.

John sits in a corner in his room, picking at the slashes on his wrist while watching the blood pool around his feet. God, it’s so red. It looks like ribbons and raspberries. He picks up the knife, slightly dizzy from the blood loss, and readies himself to hack again.

So kawaii

dripping milked whore useless dirty fuck harder harder kill death bleed

Yeah, those sure are words

“What exactly do you think you’re trying to pull here?”

Karkat steps closer and bends himself down to be face-to-face with John. John avoids his gaze. Karkat slaps him and forces his head up so he’s looking him straight in the eyes.

“The fuck. Are you trying. To pull.”

Karkat leans back and swipes a finger in the blood, and then holds the bloodied finger in John’s face.

“Did you really think this would fool me?”

"Painting your skin with blood won't fool my feelings!"

John whimpers, cowering. Karkat responds by roughly shoving the finger on John’s eye socket and rubbing. John yelps and tries to weakly shove him off.

“It isn’t even the right color, you disgusting idiot.”

I what? Why?

He roughly punches John in the face, busting his lip and spurting more blood.

Karkat gets up and the whole world bends. The floor twists and cracks and folds, people are screaming and a man smiles at him from across the room before stepping up on a high stool and swinging from a children are laughing but their tongues are too long and their legs are on a little boy with too many arms and a baby with too many heads and one of them is made of tumors pulsating in the belly of a mucus filled KILL ME PLEASE KILL ME

Man you need to get some fucking antipsychotics in you

“Look what I brought you, Egbert.”

Please let it be medicine

John looks up. Karkat is dangling a headless woman over him. Her blood is dripping on his face, over his body.

That is very much not medicine

“Do you see now?”

God, yes.

“Do you see why your blood could never be a substitute?”

John’s hand hovers above the naked flesh. He sees.

Thank god you see, because I'm kind of lost here

“Touch it, John.”

He does.

“Deeper.”

John presses his fingers into her stomach and watches as the skin unfolds and uncoils around his hand, the perfect red reaching up to cover and eradicate his imperfect imitation. He can feel the muscle. His fingers are twitching, following the curves, he’s dipping his hands, exploring and ripping and bleeding as one.

Stop touching the imaginary dead woman, John.

all you have to do is kill the broken ones and see them fixed maybe we won’t even have to see you anymore wouldn’t that be just glorious wouldn’t that be glorious if you were dead and bloated and gone

“Deeper.”

John pulls out the tissue and places it next to him as he shoves both his hands inside, tears sliding down his face. He yanks out intestines and organs. He scratches his nails against the inside of her hollow torso, getting her color underneath his nails. How could he ever compare to this? He sobs and warps his fingers around the entrails, splitting holes further to expose the pockets of bile. He wanted to cut off her legs.

cut her legs off cut her legs off cut her arms off I’m so proud of you son

Image

“Look at this, John. Look at her. Do you see how awful you are now? Even this headless whore is better than you. Everyone can smell your stink from a mile away.”

He leaned down closer again, his voice warped and beautiful and broken. He cupped John’s face and ran his fingers through his hair.

“I need you to do this, John. It’s the only way.”

John felt empty. The blood was starting to sear through his flesh.

“Everyone hates you. Everyone.”

The pain was unbearable, he could feel his bones cauterizing from the heat of it. He just wanted it all to end.

everyone

Yeah man, really get to work on those antipsychotics.

The apartment smelled funny. Dave hung up his keys and crinkled his nose, looking for the source. He walked towards John’s room.

Word of advice: don't do that

“Hey I’m—John, what the FUCK DID YOU DO?!” John was sitting alone in the corner of the room, hands at his sides, covered in blood. In front of him were pieces of an intricately disemboweled cat, intestines wrapped around John’s fingers. Dave gagged. He turned to screech at John again when he saw the cuts on his wrists.

What did I tell you?

Also

Image
NO KITTY WHY

He rushed over, his heart beating a mile a minute and pulled John’s hands free from the gore. “Oh god, John, you wouldn’t—“ John’s chest rose and fell.

He was still breathing.

His eyes, however, remained dull.

Dave felt the blood leave his face. “John, please, what happened?”

Something terrible

John didn’t turn towards him. “Claim freedom persecuted pump tongue terseuck.”

Yeah, that's terrible

Dave crinkled his eyebrows. “What?”

John looked at him. “Deragin james key asintrack ex.”

Dave looked worried. “John, asintrack isn’t even a word.”

And "Deragin" is?

“Withdrew space regular rule.”

Of COURSE! It all makes sense now!

Dave couldn’t stand the smell. He picked John up and took him out into the bathroom and placed him in the bathtub, lifting his shirt off for him and turning the water on. John’s head lolled against the back of the tub. He was so pale, the splattered blood a sharp contrast to his withering frame. He looked dead. Dave choked back a sob as he bandaged John’s wrists, forcing himself to look away. He couldn’t take much more of this.

Son, you suffered a thousand deaths in the Homestuck world, you pulled a sword out of your brother's gut, you should be able to handle this

--

“He’s doing that thing again.”

"That thing with his penis and the bagel dough"

“I’m afraid I have no idea what you’re talking about, as you haven’t used a single proper noun.”

Oh boy

“I’m not in the mood for fucking games, Lalonde.”

This will be good

“What exactly did you expect from housing with a schizophrenic Dave, hm? That his sanity would bend to your will and convenience? This doesn’t surprise me in the slightest.” Rose knitted causally in her den. “How bad is it?”

“He’s saying random words and—fuck—“ Dave’s voice fizzled out at the receiver. The sound of splashing water could be heard.

“Hm.” Rose continued her knitting. “I believe that’s known as ‘word salad’ among casual diagnosticians of schizophrenia.”

Of which you are obviously one

The splashing stopped. After a few moments, there was the sound of a door closing. “I—it just, it feels like I’m making him worse, I—“ Silence. “I came here to make him better, and I’m making it worse and I don’t know what I did and he’s, god, Rose, I don’t know what I did.” Muffled sounds.

Rose stops knitting. “Dave. It’s alright. Tell me what he did.”

“He… He’s hurting himself, he’s fucking hurting himself. God, Rose, he’s… h—he’s hurting… other things.”

Rose sat up in her chair. “Dave? What exactly did he do?”

You should text her pictures. If she's in character she should love that shit.

“He—God, this is all my fault.” There’s a dull thud accompanied by more muffled noises.

Rose puts her needles away completely. “Dave, this is serious. He needs to be hospitalized immediately.”

The end of the receiver is quiet.

“Dave. Listen to me. This is not normal schizophrenic behavior, despite what horror movies might tell you. He needs to be hospitalized. Perhaps permanently.”

“Lalonde, what the fuck are you saying?”

“This is not up for discussion. He is dangerous and cannot be reasoned with in this state.”

Thank god someone's lucid in this fic.

The silence at the end of the phone drags on for what seems like forever.

Rose spends it by logging the conversation in her "John" folder, for future reference, of course.

“Listen… I know you aren’t fond of the idea Dave, but he isn’t your best friend right now. He’s someone else, and this someone’s biochemistry isn’t susceptible to medication. You don’t have any other choice.”

Well there goes the antipsychotics idea

Silence again.

The phone clicks.

Rose puts her face in her hands, sighing.

He isn’t going to call the hospital.

He's going to call Ghostbusters

Your name is Karkat Vantas and you haven’t seen Egbert at the bagel shop in a while.

You've masturbated to the Sims five times in three days and you're starting to wonder if this "thinking in the second person" thing will finally stick.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chapter 4: 4

Summary:

karkat gets a hot date with a bagel and it is fuckin moe as hell

Hot damn, I'm already excited

Karkat didn’t sleep very often. Despite this, he still had an alarm clock that went off at 6:30 every morning to notify him of the opening of a certain shop that sold food he didn’t like.

Man, that's not healthy

Karkat yawned, taking off his headset and pausing his game. He’d gotten pretty far, he had successfully married Egbert Guy and currently had four beautiful adopted baby boys with him. They had woohoo’d about 48 times already. It was obviously a sign.

Image

Then his phone rang. Karkat groaned, flipping it to see who it was. Wow, great. Sollux had texted him, lovely.

kk don’t you fucking dare god
check up on gamz right now you fucking dip2hit 2lutbag

I swear to god "dip2hit 2lutbag" shouldn't be so funny right now.

Karkat turned off his phone.

Smart man/alien/gay lobster thing

--

Half an hour later he was pushing open the doors of the bagel shop, prepared with numerous snarky comments to shoot at the attractive ca—oh.

“What? Again? Don’t you even fucking tell me that—“

"I want my boytoy, and I want it NOW, waaaaaaah"

“Get out.”
The cocky asshole that worked with Egbert was working cash again today. He had his head in his hands and his shoulders were slumped, his shades pushed off his face.

“Are you seriously going to—“

“Get out of my store, Vantas. I’m not in the mood for your shit today.” He stands up slowly, placing his shades back on his face. He points to the exit. “Get out of my store or I’m calling the cops.”

More good ideas

Karkat just stands there, his mouth hanging open. He tiptoes his way out the store.

His phone is ringing again.

I thought you turned that off?

kk are you fucking 2eriiou2 i just texted gamz and you 2tiill arent fuckiing there with him.
am ii goiing two have two kiick your a22 two get you two actually do 2hiit.
ii know youre awake an2wer me.

SOLLUX I THINK THERE’S SOMETHING WRONG WITH EGBERT
I MEAN HE SAID THERE WAS BUT I MEAN COME ON WHEN HAS HE EVER SAID ANYTHING SERIOUSLY?
BESIDES HE’S SAID SHIT LIKE THIS BEFORE JUST TO GET A REACTION OUT OF ME SO HOW WAS I SUPPOSED TO KNOW IT WAS FOR REAL
WOW I’M SUCH AN IDIOT.

kk what the fuck are you even talkiing about.
ii2 thii2 relevant two what were talkiing about right now no.
no iit ii2nt.

Karkat's mind has literally one track, and I think Gamzee's tied to it

Karkat hurriedly remembered that time the douchebag cashier guy had pretended Egbert was dead to see if there were any similarities between then and now.

I'm sure there's a few

--

“Hey! Where’s the other guy? You worked cash yesterday, you fucking--”

“He… he died, bro.”

Karkat’s heart stopped. “What?”

Great, more flashbacks

The guy has his feet up on the table and is flipping through some porno mag. He puts the thing down for a minute and turned to Karkat. “Yup. Got hit but a truck going 220. Shit happens.” He picks the magazine back up. “Sorry you weren’t invited to the funeral, bro. I just don’t think the rest of the guests would have appreciated you pretending to eat the circular corpse-oeuvres while letting a load of spunk out on John’s sorry sack of a solidifying body.” He flipped a page.

It's like they were made for each other

This was, of course, bullshit. There was no way that happened, Karkat thought as he made a mild choking noise and his vision started to blur.

Karkat was just about to start screaming about how insensitive he was being about his beautiful partner’s death when John opened the door from the kitchen holding a new bath of bagels.

“Hey, coolkid! You mind giving me a hand over here? Oh, hi, Karkat. I’ll be with you in a minute.”

Karkat ran out screaming.

When there's something strange, in your bagel shop,
Who're you gonna call?
A psychologist!

--

He decided after much thought that perhaps these events were dissimilar. This was discouraging.

You're not screaming like a bitch, for one

I’M REALLY FUCKING SERIOUS HERE, DOUCHEHOLE. THIS IS A BIG DEAL.
WHAT IF HE’S HURT? LIKE, BADLY HURT?
FUCK, WHAT AM I GOING TO DO?

here2 a 2uggestiion.
how about you worry about the people that you actually fuckiing know.
liike.
oh.
ii dunno.
gamzee makara you piece of 2hiit.

I'm beginning to agree with the lispy man and this makes me sad and angry

Karkat Vantas spent the next couple of minutes thinking about what he could do to alleviate the obviously excruciating pain of Egbert. Oh god, what if he was really hurt? What if

kk oh my fuckiing GOD JU2T GO.

Karkat supposed he could mull over this at Gamzee’s apartment.

His lisp tells him EVERYTHING

--

It took him approximately fifteen minutes to get there on his bike. He knocked on the door.

First there was silence and Karkat’s heart jumped. Maybe he wasn’t even here? However, this was soon followed by a muffled honk which was a clear indicator of the otherwise. The door opened.

“Heeeeeeeeeey, motherfucker!” A gangly man with a grease-painted face leaned on the doorway grinning listlessly at the furious man beneath him, the faint smell of pot, confectionaries, and bad hygiene wafted in from behind him. Karkat wrinkled his nose. “Haven’t seen you around here in a while! How’re you doing, best friend?”

I thought he was on crack, why is he acting like a stoner?

“Ugh. Whatever.” Karkat pushed past him in order to survey the state of the apartment. He stepped in a pie.

Maaaan, you ever seen American Pie?

“What—What the fuck is this?!” He shrieked, shaking his leg vehemently. The thing was green.

Yeah, that was a movie, wasn't it?

Gamzee chuckled casually and went to go get a towel. “Pies, motherfucker. Slime pies. That right there is the most righteous motherfuckin’ shit I have ever made. I can get so many wicked miracles into those things, you wouldn’t even believe.” Karkat looked at him incredulously.

Karkat, this dude made a marijuana pie. For gods sake, get the recipe and open up shop as the most lucrative pie shop in America.

“Wait, are you honest to god cooking pot into these things? Gamzee, how—“

Magic

“Miracles, motherfucker.”

Close enough

He then proceded to stick his head into one that was sitting alone on a counter.

Man, when this guy eats pies, he EATS them

“You—Gamzee, get your fucking head out of there you stoned, brainless, ballsack-headed cock; you look like you’re trying to snort a pustule off of someone’s face and it is causing me to be ten seconds away from killing you and hiding the body in the most horrid of dumpsters in the least civilized of countries, I swear to god.”

Gamzee honked a horn nonchalantly.

I can only imagine the horn is his penis

Karkat gritted his teeth, trying desperately not to pull a gun out from the depths of the cosmos and shoot himself. This was going to be a long visit. The delicate smell of week-old laundry drafted up to his nose, reminding him he had a job to do.


“How the hell do you even live in this pigsty without suffocating under the weight of your own stench? Can’t you even—Gamzee you fucking—Give me that!” He swatted the pie away, not even turning to watch it splatter across the floor. Gamzee looked down at him guiltily as Karkat’s screeching reached critical levels, wringing his hands. “How am I supposed to—I don’t give a fuck about your self-medicating bullshit right now, okay? Do you fucking see what this place looks like? This is not normal. Damn it, Gamzee, it isn’t healthy and you’re not helping yourself by wallowing in your own filth. You’re going to get off your ass right now and you’re going to help me with this, and we’ll deal with…” he gestured scathingly at the pie on the floor, “…later. You got that?”

Gamzee didn’t say anything for a long time. When he did, it held the vague aura of intoxicated concern. “What’s wrong, motherfucker?”

Oh no, stoned friend picked up on romantic issues

Karkat made a series of bizarre hissing and spitting cat noises before he remembered how to speak coherently. “What? What’s wrong? I’ll tell you what’s wrong. What’s WRONG is you deciding that—“

Why the cat imagery? Are you TRYING to make us remember poor Bubbles whose intestines are still on John's floor?

“Nah, that ain’t it.” Gamzee leaned in, scrutinizing his face in concentration. “You ain’t even motherfucking here, are you? You’re all up in your own head, swimming in your own motherfuckin’ miracles.” He pressed a single finger onto Karkat’s head to emphasize the location of said motherfucking miracles. Karkat blinked stupidly.

“Wh—“

“Shoosh, bro,” Gamzee said kindly, patting the side of Karkat’s face. “Tell me what’s wrong.”

Just shoosh yourself and tell uncle Gamgam what's troubling your poor angry face

Karkat blinked again. Then he sighed, pushing Gamzee’s hand away. “God, I’m sorry. There’s just— a lot on my mind right now.”

“It’s chill, bro. Whatever it is, it’ll work out. Listen—I don’t want you all up and coming here if you don’t feel like it, aight? You obviously got some serious motherfucking shit up in that head of yours and you obviously gotta get that sorted out before you all up and start hangin’ with me again. You got that?”

Karkat looked away, rubbing his arm. “Gamzee, I—“

"I want to get assfucked by a dead bagel boy"

“No. Shoosh. I want you to all go and get yourself to that wicked park up on Eighth Avenue and walk around until you got your shit straight. You got that? Then you can come back.” He grinned lazily. “It ain’t a thing, bro.”

Karkat looked up at Gamzee again, and then over to the door. He paused, and then gave him a rough hug before going to leave. “I promise I’ll be back soon, okay? I just--?”

“Motherfucker, not another word. I’ll just be sittin’ here with my miracle pies ‘til you all up and get back here.”

Man, that crackhead has a decent grasp on emotional struggles.

And marijuana pies

Your name is Karkat Vantas and you are going for a walk in the park to clear your head.

Your name is John Egbert and you are going for a walk in the park to clear your head.

For real this time, we hope

--

John is sobbing and babbling incoherently, following Dave around the apartment and grasping at him pathetically. Dave does not change his mind.

“D—Dave… y—you don’t understand… W—wh—Dave, please-!” John is crying harder now, trying to grab at the keys desperately. Dave shoves him off.

This scene is so much better when we aren't aware of what Dave is keeping John from doing

Personally I think he's forcing him not to masturbate on the cat

“John, don’t do this, I was up all night long bleaching the apartment and burning cat hairs, there is no way in fuck I am doing that again, Egbert, it’s only until you feel better, John, fuck, John, get off of me—“ Dave shoves a bit harder than he intended and locks another window. John falls over and lays there, crying helplessly. Dave draws his eyebrows together, testing the lock on the window and trying desperately not to turn around and give in. He does not succeed.

“John, shh, John look at me,” John shakes vehemently, becoming hysterical while Dave attempts unsuccessfully to pry John’s hands from his face. “I promise when I get back I’ll unlock them, okay? This is only for a little while. This is because I messed up, alright? John, this isn’t permanent, this is only for a little while, John, please, calm the fuck down!”

Dave Strider: Professional Schizophrenia Help

John Egbert is hyperventilating and babbling vapidly while shaking his head so fast Dave thinks he’s going to break his neck.

Guilt consumes him.

“Th..there’s some pizza in the fridge if you get—“

John is clawing at the carpet, back on the ground, looking frantic and desperate and broken and god

How does one "look god"

Dave Strider leaves the apartment, trying desperately to think about bagels.

Dave knows how to handle stressful emotions better than anyone else

He uses bagels to relieve the tension

John crawls his way back to his bedroom, his entire body wracked with sobs. Dave just didn’t understand, why didn’t he understand, this was dire, this was the most important thing in the world, god, now what was he going to do, if Karkat finds out he is going to

“John.”

John gasped and scrambled backwards. Karkat stepped forward.

The silence that bled through Karkat’s eyes was thick like lead, holding down John violently and dangerously, thick like lead and knives and nails. Karkat stared down at him. He knew.

You really like that lead simile

“What are you doing.”

“I—I—I—Dave—he—“

Karkat took one step closer. His eyes were two glinting orbs, sitting wetly inside his skull. Two orbs, safely enclosed within a cage of flesh, two circles, two pin points, two dots lines arms reaching out to pull John up to face Karkat one inch away

“Speak up, John.”

John shook. “I—he—D-dave locked the windows, I can’t—“

Karkat wrapped an arm around him, his fingers petting John’s hair, casually intertwining themselves between the locks. “He locked you in, did he?”

“Y-y-yes—“

“Is that so?” Karkat asked this quietly. His fingers winded around a particularly thick patch. John whimpered helplessly.

“I—he—he did—“

Uh oh

Karkat fisted his hand and pulled, slamming John’s face into the window pane. The window cracked in a violent propulsion of blood while John screamed, holding his ruined face.

First of all, please don't fist people's hands

Secondly, you don't open windows with your face.

“WELL THAT’S JUST TOO FUCKING BAD, NOW ISN’T IT, JOHN?”

SLAM.

“LOOKS LIKE YOU HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO GIVE UP, NOW THAT DAVE LOCKED A WINDOW, YOU DEGENERATE IDIOT!”

John shrieked, arms flailing trying to grasp on to some sort of handle, mouth begging Karkat to stop, tears running down his face. Karkat didn’t listen.

“DON’T YOU DARE EVER SAY THAT TO ME AGAIN, YOU WORTHLESS PIECE SHIT, YOU JUST GO AND FUCKING FIND ONE.”

SLAM.

John screamed and screamed, blood gushing from every orifice, unable to see because of the congealed blood on his face running down his body

And believe me, when he says "every orifice" he MEANS every orifice

worthless fucking shitbag cant do anything better off dead better off gone

“Karkat, p-please—how do I even know w-which ones--!”

Karkat smashed his head through the window.

Man you need to dump your imaginary abusive boyfriend

--

The instant he arrived at his destination he started to question why he was there.

Also who he was. He was questioning who the fuck he was since there weren't any personal nouns to refer to him

Karkat never really found any enjoyment in parks, due to the people that often inhabited them.

Karkat, those are homeless people.

During his few visits he rarely came across anyone he knew, and yet every person he walked near insisted on striking up an increasingly obnoxious and awkward conversation, leaving Karkat with an intense feeling of dread, praying to god he would never come across that person again.

That one person who just happened to be multiple people

This was about to change.

Who's ready for yaooooooi!

On a bench, next to the park walkway, on the far left, sat none other than Egbert himself.

Okay dude, step one: be cool

Karkat made a loud squawking noise and jumped behind a tree.

Okay, that's not exactly "cool," but you can recover.

OH GOD OH GOD HE CAN’T BE HERE WHY IS HE HERE I’M NOT EVEN DRESSED

My god, did you walk to the park naked?

Didn't you go to the bagel store before this? At what point did you get undressed??

NO SHUT UP YOU IDIOT CAN’T YOU SEE THIS IS YOUR CHANCE YOU FINALLY GET TO TALK TO HIM WITHOUT HAVING TO SMELL ANY BAGELS GO GO GO

Man has his priorities, at least

Karkat watched him. He couldn’t get that good of a view from this far away, but there was no mistaking it. There was no other person in the entirety of the cosmos with hair that stuck up that way. He took deep breaths, steadying himself.

This can't end well

SUP EGBERT YOU MIGHT REMEMBER ME FROM THAT BAGEL SHOP YOU WORK AT I’M THE ONE THAT YELLS AT YOU SOMETIMES AND ALSO CAN I BUY YOU A COFFEE ONE OF THESE DAYS WHAT IS YOUR FIRST NAME IT ISN’T ACTUALLY EGBERT RIGHT BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE WEIRD

This would be cute as hell if John didn't just fist a cat's abdominal cavity

Karkat was suddenly hyper aware of how very red his face was. No, that was horrible and stupid and this was horrible and stupid. He could do this. He would just have to walk over there and do it. He was in control.

Karkat jumped out from his hiding place, feeling very much in control. He stomped over to Egbert, hands clenched into fists.

He should have realized there was something off the closer he got to the bench, however he was way too in control at the moment to think about much of anything besides butterflies gnawing at the insides of his stomach.

This CAN'T end well

“HEY,” he barked.

Woof woof, Egbert

Egbert positively jumped out of his seat at the noise, and when he looked up, he looked absolutely terrified. Karkat’s stomach sunk. He shouldn’t have been so forceful. He’d barely opened his mouth and he’d already messed up, damn him. Wait what was wrong with his face oh god what the fuck happened to his face

I'm sure you'll find out soon enough

“Oh god, please, I’m sorry, please, Karkat, I just, I don’t know who, they all look the same to me and please, why won’t you help me Karkat, please I can’t do this by myself!

Karkat didn’t hear a word of this. He was staring at his face. It was cut and bruised badly, the bruises turning different shades of yellow and purple and his arms what the fuck happened oh my god

His stomach churned, he’d never seen anything so pitiful in his entire life. He wanted to hold Egbert forever and keep anything else from ever happening to him ever again while simultaneously gutting the perpetrator of the wounds. How sick and horrible do you even have to be to do this to someone like Egbert he was so

“What happened to you?” he demanded. Karkat could already feel the rage bubbling in his veins.

Son, rage is not the right emotion for you right now

This demanded vengeance. NO ONE touches his Egbert, despite the fact that he did not actually hold any claim to Egbert whatsoever.

Egbert looked at him.

He looked confused.

He opened his mouth slightly, eyebrows drawn together. “But…”

“…don’t you remember?”

Image

Karkat blinked, trying to decipher this. Remember? Remember what? Had he been there when this had happened? Had Egbert already told—oh. Dave. Dave had already told him what happened, he just hadn’t believed him at the time. Great, now he looks like a jerk for forgetting. This was already going horribly. He had to fix this, and fast.

“Of course I remember. I was just… testing you.”

Bzzzzzzt. Wrong answer

Egbert looked at him.

Now it was going even worse.

Welcome to hell, friend

Karkat needed help, and fast. He wondered if he could discretely text Sollux and ask him for help, he was always so good at picking up girls. He fisted his front pocket, looking for his phone.

Wait.

What.

The pocket was empty. Karkat’s nerves reached new, unpredicted levels of terror. Where had his phone gone? What had he done with it? He had gotten up in the morning, he had his phone then, gone to the bagel shop, he had his phone then too, gone to check on Gamzee, he had—

Who knew pot increased your Pickpocket skill

Oh.

Suddenly an idea hit him. Karkat cleared his throat. “Do you want to meet a friend of mine?” he asked, quietly resisting the urge to bash his own face into the pavement and leave himself to die.

Karkat, this is the wrongest of ideas you have had yet

“I mean, you know, if—“

To Karkat’s astonishment, Egbert looked positively delighted at this. Perhaps it wasn’t a lost cause after all?

“You mean it? You’re going to help me?”

Karkat drew his eyebrows together, not really understanding. “Well, actually you’re kind of helping me because—“ he started, trying to explain the cellphone.

"because I want to get into your pants and my friend is so stoned he won't even notice us"

“Well, yes, of course, that’s what I meant,” Egbert looked terrified again. Karkat had obviously missed an important part of the conversation while he was daydreaming, and now he was paying for it. God, he was so bad at talking to guys.

“Um. Yes. Are you coming?” Egbert nodded vigorously. Karkat tried not to grin. If Egbert saw how awful Gamzee was, he’d obviously think better of Karkat, thinking of him as some sort of charitable hero and fall in love with him, romcom style. Perhaps this was going to turn out well after all.

Hah, if only

--

Egbert did not seem to think Gamzee was awful. Egbert seemed to think Gamzee was some kind of angel.

This.... Was not what I was expecting

Whatever Gamzee said or did Egbert looked on with awed reverence, his eyes following him everywhere. This was discouraging.

It was even more discouraging when he walked in with him and Gamzee gave him this too-knowing look and it made him blush harder than he’d blushed in a while.

This was REALLY not what I was expecting

It was even more discouraging than that when Egbert introduced himself (he introduced himself as JOHN Egbert, John) he asked Karkat if Gamzee was special, and Gamzee replied that he was a motherfucking miracle, and Egbert (John) seemed to think that that was a completely respectable response.

It was the most discouraging of all the way John motherfucking Egbert smiled at him.

He smiled at him like he’d found peace with the world, like everything, everything after all, was going to be okay.

John is now down with the clown. God help him.

God help us all.

He smiled at him the way Karkat smiled when he was alone and there was no one to laugh at him and his stupid, stupid crush on the bagel boy who obviously had just fallen for someone else.

Karkat wanted to put his face in his hands and cry.

It's okay, there are other fish in the bagel sea.

Your name is John Egbert and tonight you are going to kill Gamzee Makara.

uh, WHAT?

Re: Tod Gets Sent a Fanfiction: "kawaii yaoi"

Chapter 5: 5

Summary:

uh oh more gay boy problems

Uh oh indeed

“John, I’m home!”

Dave had picked up some groceries on the way over from work. He thought maybe John would like some ice cream, specifically Rocky Road, his favorite. He set them down next to the still-open hallway door before yawning and clicking it shut.

“John?”

No response.

In a horror movie, this is where you leave the ice cream as a sacrifice and run

Dave stood silently for another second, waiting for John to make some sort of recognizable noise. The door to John’s room hung open slightly. Dave blinked. Dave stopped breathing.

That food sacrifice would go a long way now, wouldn't it?

please be here please be here please be here

There was broken glass sprinkled all along the floor of John’s room. The window was specked with blood. A lone hammer lay on its side next to the shattered makeshift exit.

At least he didn't use his face

There was a knock on the front door.

What did I tell you about the rules of horror movies?!

Dave jumped, twisting around. The knock came again, louder this time.

He approached the door cautiously. Dave cracks his knuckles before opening it.

AND THEN A SKELETON POPPED OUT

“Hello! I was wondering if you’ve seen my cat around here? I’m afuraid she didn’t come back home last night, and I’m a little worried, so—“

Dave slammed the door, his heart beating a thousand beats a minute.--

RIP Bubbles, you will be missed.

Also
I’m afuraid

don't think I didn't see this.
Because I did.
And I hate it.

John was humming brightly, strumming his fingers against the window of the car. He looked over at Karkat and grinned.

Karkat did not respond.

His face was contorted strangely and his eyes did not leave the road. He had been playing the same Katy Perry song on repeat for the past ten minutes.

I kissed a clown and I liked it,
the taste of her bloody chapstick.
I kissed a clown just to try it,
I hope my Karkat don't mind it.

Earlier after Karkat had decided that John had seen enough of Gamzee, he mumbled something about it having gotten dark and asked if John needed a ride home. John was confused at first, but then obliged, after asking for a pen to write down Gamzee’s address.

Karkat gave it to him.

Now he was driving, his face perpetually scrunched up in what could only be properly described as some sort of abdominal pain.

It felt so wrong,
it felt so right.
Don't mean he's in love tonight.
He kissed a clown and he's gonna die

John tried to remember what he did wrong.

Man, I'm trying to remember what you've done RIGHT

“Thank you, by the way.”

“Mm.”

“For… everything.”

“Mm.”

Karkat turns towards him, looking like he’s about to say something, but he just turns right back around, shrinking into himself.

I can't wait to see how this goes

Karkat did not appear to be mad at John. This was a plus. However, he also did not appear to be happy with him. Fear slowly curdled in John’s stomach, as an unhappy Karkat has proved never been a good thing. His brain wracked itself looking for ways to eradicate this.

Man, this is going to be something, isn't it

“I liked…” he waved his hand, searching for the right word. “hanging out with you today.”

Karkat looked over his shoulder at John, his face unreadable. “..hanging out.”

“Yeah. Outside of the bakery, y’know, not doing anything. We should do more of this.”

Karkat blinked. “We should?”

“Yeah! Especially once we’re done with this, this collecting thing. This thing with the colors.”

What?

Karkat is facing him fully now. The car is parked, when John doesn’t remember. Karkat’s face is strange. John can feel the fear turning in his organs once again, and he panics.

“I really like hanging out with you! You’re a great guy!” John’s muscles are tense and he’s squeezing the sides of the seat.

No wait, time out, you do not drop something like that and not explain it

Is that what John and imaginary Karkat are doing?

collecting colors?

Karkat opens his mouth. He closes his mouth. He opens it again, and turns away, biting his lip. Then he turns back, looking fiercely determined all of a sudden and asks in an unnecessarily loud voice, “Can I have your number?”

Karkat, that was smooth as asphalt, and you seem to have missed the operative phrase in John's last series of statements.

John is confused, as Karkat has never seemed to need John’s number before in terms of contact. Regardless, he hesitantly gets out a pen from his pocket, determined not to anger him. “Do you have a piece of paper?”

Karkat looks like he’s trying exceptionally hard not to smile. “Oh, um—“ he giddily reaches around the car, looking for something that isn’t McDonald’s cheeseburger rappers, and comes up empty. “Shit—“

John sighs and grabs his arm. They were wasting time. “Do you have any problem with me just writing it on your arm?”

Karkat was red. “Oh, um, no, no I don’t think… no, not really. Yeah, you can do that, if you want, I mean. If you want to.” He gulped. John wrote it.

Smoooooooooth

“I’ll see you later.”

Karkat’s face was frozen in perpetual disbelief when he slammed the car door shut.

Man, what a mess

----

Dave is waiting for him in the living room.

Shirtless, with candles, oil, and a ripe banana

His face is in his hands and he looks like a broken doll, the strings tangled within each other, their damp skin stretching against each other into a weave. John sniffed the air.

Man, that's some face

“JOHN! John, what the fuck did you do?! What is this? John, what the fuck, John—“ His arm was being held gruffly and the address on his arm was being read.

“211 Parkway Dr-- What is this? What is this supposed to be? Fuck, John, what are you—“

He's looking for Nemo

A fist flies through the air, contacting with the bridge of Dave’s nose, an explosion of blood. Dave falls back with a choked sob, covering his face. Karkat grabs a lampshade and swings it John watches, horrified, as the lamp comes in contact with Dave’s head in a burst of red. He flumps forward and hits the ground, silent.

Rude

red

no, I said "rude"

Red cauterizes the floor, seeping into wood panels and then rises again, glowing with an infernal flame and John can feel his eyeballs sucked back into his eye sockets, his fingers pet and scratch his face as his fissures become cracked with eczema and his brain becomes edaphic and his teeth are saccharose sucrose saccharine glucose and lined in just the right way to make his gums feel wrong and face too tight

Man, you don't even need Gamzee's shit to get fucked up

Karkat is grinning. The walls are red.

Somwhere in Amityville, a house is finally off its period

Dave.

“John.”

He’s okay.

“He’s just fine.”

Yeah, sure, I'm sure he is.

The floor is a whirlpool and skin is a wanton virgin pluck for the fucking

Please don't fuck the floor

“You look so pretty in that color, John.”

But Dave

"It's okay, Dave can watch"

He can feel his muscles rearranging themselves in his body and his bones bending to accommodate, the harsh twang of tendon sounding loudly as John watches his epidermal blanket fluctuate around him, lobes flip-flopping and fingers hemorrhaging and the worm inside him shifting to lean on Karkat as he loses his balance and catches it again to see everything was just right after all, now wasn’t it little boy I can see cle a r l y no w t he r ai n is go n e I’m so proud of you son and Karkat is screeching and shaking him and there’s just all this red

Man, what happened to your childhood to make this happen

“YES! FUCK, yes, John, don’t you get it? It was you all along, fuck, you disgusting piece of shit, god, we were always the same, weren’t we, the same sugar, the same shade of secretion the same static

Maaaan, that's deep

I can see all obstacles in my way

Since there wasn't an end quote there, I have to assume this is Karkat singing

“You’re going to kill him. You’re going to kill him and you’re going to fuck his dead body and you’re going to love it, you sick sack of flesh, you disgusting rotting corpse of a man, look at yourself, you’re a disgrace to everyone who sees you, son of a bitch,

Okay, I was wrong, John really is down with the clown.

...

Image

John had never felt so giddy in his life, there was something sticky in his hair and his clothes had changed colors, the world was spinning as Karkat grabbed him, growling and spouting horns, fangs extending as he took one long, languid lick of John’s waiting flesh, John giggling and shrieked with laughter, He was sucking at him, pushing him up against a desk, punching him in the stomach and biting his intestines, he was knocking at a door.

Umm, eww

“Shit little man, ain’t it a bit late for visitors?”

When the fuck did you get there? Did Karkat's penis time warp you to Gamzee's house?

Chapter 6: 6

Summary:

b-baka !
Notes:

(See the end of the chapter for notes.)

I-It's not like I READ your fanfiction.

The skinny guy from before is standing on the doorstep and smiling up at him. His face is so lit up that Gamzee swears he can hear it snap crackle pop like a motherfucking breakfast cereal.

Wrong imagery Gamzee

“You alright?”

No

The kid looks different from before.

He’s wearing an oversized, washed out pink hoodie and all his muscles are clenched tightly, wound and rewound around himself as he grins, hands behind his back and grinning oh so painfully up at Gamzee. He giggles.

The Rules of Horror are now in full effect

Gamzee furrows his brow and looks over his shoulder, trying to find the joke. “Shit, what you all up and laughin’ about, Johnny boy? You’re at my doorstep at one in the morning and you ain’t even got no jacket.” John stops giggling, and leans against the doorframe, still grinning up at him. He doesn’t say anything. Gamzee blinks and crinkles his nose, checking over his shoulder again, then after a second thought, over John’s for good measure. “M’ best bro Karkat ain’t with you, huh?”

There's reason for that

John’s grin spits his face at this, revealing both sets of projections, and his sullen eyes swell. Gamzee can hear the wind outside blowing.

To be honest, I don't know what's going on in this sentence

And then it stops blowing, because John has removed one hand from behind his back and stepped inside clicking the door shut in one step. Gamzee’s feet step backwards of their own accord.

There are rules to horror, and you've broken them all

“Shit.”

John is walking forwards towards him, ever so quietly, one hand grazing a lopsided table and the other still hidden discretely behind an ever-clenched back. He bites his lip and looks adoringly up at Gamzee, like he never wants to look away.

Gamzee hits a wall in his efforts to back away further.

Run, motherfucker

“Uh, you forget something bro?”

John tilts his head, nerve endings firing and eyes twitching. He reaches up and caresses Gamzee’s face lovingly, eyes lulled in reverence. “Spectrum runselling breakage.”

He forgot how to make coherent sentences

Gamzee narrows his eyes slightly. “…runselling? Is this some kind of a prank?”

This is so out of character it hurts. Where's the happiness? The calmness?

John shakes his head, chuckling slightly. He pats Gamzee’s face.

“Trick,” he says.

Then he slams a hammer straight into Gamzee’s eye.

Well, now it's all over the floor. Good going, John.

--

The shrieking echoes off the wall, he’s howling, there’s blood splattered on the wall behind him. John takes a step back and hacks again. God, it’s so wonderful. God, it’s so beautiful. He’s moaning and sobbing and scratching the walls and John is grabbing his hair and shoving his face into the carpet and the only thing John wants right now is gorgeous fucking red red red

he's probably so hard right now

smash his face in

He raises his hammer and strikes again again and giggles. There are portions of pink flesh flying through the air and John gazes down in bubbling adulation at the brand new holes streaming gushing Red but

why won’t he stop making all that noise

I don't know, maybe it's because he's in immense pain

He’s still crying.

Yeah, I can't imagine why

He’s still crying, and he’s shivering, clutching himself. He gapes at John with crimson sockets and a ruined face, shrinking into himself as if to hide, babbling noises that sound similar to prayers.

The noise rings and bounces off of the inside of John’s skull, and he grasps it, hissing.

A single hand wraps around his waist as a head slinks up and rests itself on his shoulder, nuzzling into his warmth. John shivers.

"Stay Golden, Johnnyboy"

“Johnny.”

“Johnny.”

“Johnny, rip out his tongue.”

Ummmm, can we not?

He’s standing over him now, shoving the hammer in his mouth, listening idly to the hollow crack of bone, sobs screaming scratching at his leg, and John has never felt so full in his life, so fucking full.

Someone's jacking off to this

full of shit
“You’re doing it wrong.”

Oh please, show us how it's done

There are fingers in his face and legs in his arms, a whole ocean of liquids rushing and gushing and gurgling while Karkat rips with nails sharpened like knives dive deep into the esophagus, clawing at the membrane and resurfacing with a fist full of dead cells rearranged like brand new furniture

The IKEA of viscera

Karkat’s face is disfigured and lacking in chroma, his eyes demonic and wide. His teeth are weaponry. He grabs the man on the floor.

His face is splitting, a Glasgow grin made of fucking sugar, chthonian protrusions escaping the skull in candy-colored formation as he sticks his tongue down his throat and hums.

His fist contacts with the abdominal sack of meat and sinks through to the cardinal blancmange coiled snake bleeding red soft tissueHis hand engrosses and welcomes the repugnant slime, it welcomes it deferentially and God why won’t he shut up

That's the fourth sugar reference in this story. I don't like it.

John tightens his handle and pulls, cracking the ribcage open wide, blood speckling his face, laughing, laughing, screaming, shrieking

Karkat’s claws are piercing into John’s shoulders, drawing blood as he presses against him, purring lowly. He leans forward, slowly licking an ear.

“Good boy,” he whispers.

"Now sit. Roll over."

John shoves both hands into the man’s chest.

"Play dead"

Karkat sighs against his skin, a hand in his hair and teeth tracing his neck.

“Such a good boy.”

Man, I cannot explain exactly how creepy a motherfucker this Karkat is

John methodically removes the organs from their casing. He sticks his fingers in the eye sockets. He wants to stretch him out and break him. He wants to see just how far he can go.

Karkat chuckles and wraps his legs around John, slinking a hand under his shirt.

“Do you know what good boys get?”

Candy?

John has his mouth on the inside of the man’s cheek, teeth pulling in an attempt to get it to tear. He tastes red for the very first time.

“They get fucked."

Image

Karkat grabs him by the neck and pushes him down, cackling, smearing his face in the heavily gored carcass. John chokes, clawing his way around the body, reaching back around at Karkat, blood and extraneous tissue going up his nose and mouth.

“You’re such a little piece of shit,” Karkat chuckles, flipping him over and scratching his face. “Do you really think everything is fine now? Do you think everything is okay, just because you got a bit of cherry red?”

So John gets topped by his imaginary boyfriend...

This is weird to think about

John’s babbling again, trying to push himself up. Karkat pushes him back down. He bites his neck.

John likes to play rough, damn

He’s fighting with him, wresting him to the ground

He’s clutching a bloodied eye socket, screaming, crawling away on hands and knees

He’s coming back from the kitchen, chuckling

He’s approaching the sobbing mess on the ground

And now he’s laughing


“Do you even know what you did? What happened here?”

Not really, it's been pretty confusing

He’s coming home from school

He’s opening the door

He’s saying hi to dad

He’s eating cake

And now he’s covered in blood

that escalated quickly

“You’re a monster. And you should feel like a monster.”

Image

he needed to get the gun

“N-no, Karkat, no, sto—“

Karkat’s lips crash into his own, growling. John pushes against him, gasping for air, but Karkat just pushes him back down

Making out with your hallucination: The fanfic

intestines turning inside out opening wide skeletal system contracting to accommodate for all this fucking blood

Karkat puts a hand over John’s mouth and watches as tears start to stream down his face, rocking against him and purring lowly.

his flesh is burning twisting and hardening in the flame breaking into a million pieces as the skin on his face is ripped from his skull i’m so proud of you son so proud of you son so proud of you son

Karkat leaned down again and aligns his face with John Egbert’s ear, whispering darkly.

“Good boy.”

If I had whiskey, this is where I'd drink it.

Re: Tod Gets Sent a Fanfiction: "kawaii yaoi"

Let's jump right back in, shall we?

Chapter 7: 7

Summary:

oops

Yeah, oops is probably right

Dave groaned, rubbing his forehead.

The world spun and faded periodically. He felt hungover.

Reminds me, I should have brought the whiskey. Why do I keep forgetting these essentials?

Then he looked around his trashed apartment and remembered that he wasn’t hungover.

He was Dave, and he had a John he had lost somewhere.

Next to him lay a broken lamp. His closet appeared to have been completely emptied, its contents strewn along the floor of the living room. Dave squinted, rubbing his eyes. His head throbbed. He vaguely remembered John coming in and flipping out and oh sweet Jesus Christ where was John where was he where was he where was he

In a clown, if I remember correctly.

Dave’s heart throbbed painfully, jumping out of his chest as he staggered around, trying desperately to remember where John went. He grasped his head, messaging his temples. He came in… yelling smash.. lamp..s hade.. arm 211 Parkway—

Dave stood up suddenly, his vision blurred but his mind clear.

He knew where John was.

Who's ready for a threesome?

---

The car hummed passively as it drove up in front of the apartment. Dave looked up from his hand-written directions towards his destination. He placed his head down on the steering wheel and inhaled deeply through his nose, steadying himself.

I can't help but think that Dave is acting like a poor little 15-year-old about to meet his date for the first time

He could do this. He turned off the gas.
He got out of the car and stepped heavily towards his objective.

Go get 'em, tiger

The door read its number, heavily scarred with age and lack of care. There wasn’t any noise coming from within.

I hope you remember those rules of horror, because these assholes sure don't.

Dave’s hand was poised above the door prepared to knock. There still wasn’t any noise coming from the room behind it.

Dave, I want you to know there is a long list of things you should do right this very moment, like CALLING THE POLICE

Dave knocked.

That wasn't even close to being on that list.

There still wasn’t any noise.

Dave knock again.

Dave knock again. Door no work. DAVE SMASH!

No noise.

I hope this means the place is empty now

Dave shivered, checking the quickly scrawled noted from within his hand. Right address. He clicked his tongue, wondering if the owner within would charge him with breaking and entering if he tried to force his way inside.

Why on earth don't you call the cops and have THEM break in??

Only if he got caught, he supposed. Only if. ..the owner. Caught.

Good news, Gamzee ain't catching anything anytime soon.

The door, it turns out, wasn’t locked.

Don't open it, dude

And when Dave stepped inside he couldn’t stop himself from screaming.

“GOD, FUCK! GOD, GOD, FUCK, GOD, JESUS CHRIST FUCK!!” Dave leaned to the side and hurled.

What did I JUST tell you?

John was laying serenely on top of a dead body.

At least he's happy?

Said dead body seemed to have diffused itself all over the room.

All over. The room.

Eww

There was so much blood.

Dave was covered in vomit, and he started to cry. He hobbled towards his friend and shook him, screaming words he didn’t understand. There was just so much blood. There was just so much—

You are just FILLED with good ideas. And correct characterization.

John snapped out of his glazed state, eyes resurfacing from wherever they were. He looked scared. Dave screamed and punched him, screaming and screaming and screaming.

Dave, why are you punching John? I guess that's sorta more in-character, but that doesn't make it smart.

No, John, he couldn’t be the victim here, look what you’ve done, you fucking monster, you monster, seeing things he couldn’t see, haunted by things he didn’t know, John, whose father died a horrible death, who trusted him, was entrusted to him, and look at him, he failed.

Are we in Dave's head or John's? I seem to have gotten lost in this third-person-omniscient worldview.

He failed.

So have I!

And that's the end of the riff, nothing more to see here!

John was whimpering.

I said no, that's it.

“No, shh, shh, I’m sorry, please, I wasn’t thinking, don’t cry—“ Dave scooped him up, bloodied and horrible smelling and carried him out. “No, shh, please, stop, John--”

Man, you've got one hell of a mood swing there.

He smelled like death, and less than twelve feet away was a body. He knew what he had to do.

Please don't fuck the corpse

Necrophilic sloppy seconds can probably get you tried at the Hague.

Dave started up the car again and got out his phone. But before he typed those three numbers, those three numbers that would change everything forever, those numbers that were proof of his failure, his broken promise, his regrets, he looked over at John.

You are so close man, you can do this

John, who was looking out the window, his face streaked with tears.

John, who was silently hugging himself, shivering.

John.

And Dave made the worst decision of his life.



As he opened the bottom cabinet in Gamzee’s house, he was glad the man owned so much carbon peroxide.

Image

You had this, and you blew it. Now we have to suffer through five more chapters.

Also carbon peroxide doesn't even exist, you asshole. As a chemist, this personally offends me.

Yes, more than the necrophilia, cat-murder, and bread-defilement.

Your name is Karkat Vantas and you are absolutely giddy.

God only knows why

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chapter 8: 8

Summary:

welp

I used to like your sarcastic and dissociated summaries, but now I hate them.

And you.

He was sitting in front of the television, bawling his eyes out about just how perfect Elizabeth Bennet was with her darling Mr. Darcy, the dashingly handsome yet outwardly cruel young man. He identified with him. John was his Elizabeth, both a tad bizarre and both with brown hair. Karkat then started to cry about John’s silky locks, shoveling another tub of chocolate icecream into his mouth.

Man, not even canon you was this desperate and unhealthy

Then the phone rang.

The list of characters I want at the other end is incredibly short and pretty much consists entirely of the FBI and Santa.

Karkat groaned audibly, flipping open his phone in irritation and pausing the movie. Sollux.

How did I know this was going to happen?

He would go out of his way to interrupt Karkat on movie night.

I doubt even Sollux's lisp cares enough about your movie nights to tell him.

“WHAT?” He barked.

The other end was silent.

Everything is so silent in these chapters.

Just for once, can't something be opened with violent screaming like every other shitty horror fic?

Karkat toyed with the remote scathingly, glaring straight ahead. Typical.

How the fuck do you toy with a phone scathingly? Riddle me this, fanfic person.

“If you haven’t got anything to say, d—“

“Have you theen the newth yet, kk?”

Oh boy, this'll be fun.

The news? The news? Why would he-“

That lone end-quote really pulled this sentence together.

“Why would I-“

“You might wanna check the newth.

Just…

I’m thorry, Karkat. I’m really thorry.”

Not as sorry as I am.

He hung up, leaving Karkat to the silence. He felt his back shiver. Calling him by his full name was rare, and only saved for the most serious of situations.

But.. he didn't? He called you by your first name?

What is happening in this fic?

He looked down at the remote in his hand, quitely considering the options.

I heard John has a gun, that's an item to add to your list.



The agonizing wail could be heard throughout the entire complex.

Thankfully only my two flatmates can hear me scream.

--

The funeral was next week, closed casket. All of his friends were there, hanging his head.

Image

WHAT THE FUCK KIND OF FUNERAL IS THIS? WHY ARE YOU HANGING HIS HEAD?!

Karkat couldn’t stop crying.

YEAH I CAN'T IMAGINE WHY, THEY'RE LITERALLY HANGING THE HEAD OF YOUR DEAD FRIEND IN FRONT OF YOU.

“I-it was my job! To protect him! Mine! Fuck! FUCK! IT WAS MY JOB!

It ain't a job unless you get paid for it, and I wouldn't pay you to babysit a pet rock.

He let out another moan, slumping against Kanaya, hiding his sobs against her dress.

Considering that in canon, Kanaya chainsawed Gamzee in half in a fit of murderous rage, I doubt she cares for your grief tears, Karkles-boy.

Kanaya pet his hair and whispered soothing things to him, rocking him slightly.

But then again, she is the living incarnation of the goddess of mothers, so what do I know

Sollux and Terezi stood slightly apart from the others, glaring into the distance as the man read the eulogy.

How can you tell? One is blind and both are wearing glasses that block light. How are you sure they're not just gazing wistfully into the trees?

Terezi was the first to speak.

“He was murdered.”

"No, it was a suicide. He tore his own body apart and painted the walls with his own viscera."

Sollux hissed, shielding his eyes crossly. “Yeth he wath murdered. We all know thith. It is a fact. Good for you.”

You forgot to give her a gold star

“He was murdered and he needs justice. This wasn’t an accident. This was someone he knew.”

“Yeth, the polithe already figured that out, you—who’th that talking to kk?”

They simultaneously turned their heads to the left, ogling the short young man who had joined their group, looking around at the festivities interestingly.

Karkat, why did you bring John to the funeral?

What sort of being possessed you and made you think this was a good idea?

“I’ve never theen him before.”

“He might be the murderer then.

"Case closed, good job everyone, I'll see you all again on Monday."

Someone Gamzee knew that we didn’t, that—“

“Terezi! Thtop. Jutht thtop it, ok? Thtop. I’m gonna go find out who he is.” And with that Sollux walked off, shoulders hunched. Terezi was quick to follow.

“Hey. Who’th this?” Sollux jerked his head at the young man, not looking at him. Karkat was still shaking.

Hang on, you've seen John before, shouldn't you recognize him?

“A friend of Karkat’s, apparently. He saw the procession from his house, which is seemingly nearby, and decided to join us.” Kanaya went back to petting Karkat’s hair.

Because that's a thing people do

“I—I’m sorry , you had to see me like this. I’m not usually like this,” Karkat lied into Kanaya’s cloth.

No, hand on, this is Kanaya we're talking about. Weren't the two of you feelings-friends in the canon? Shouldn't she be WELL aware of your movie nights and feelings jams?

“I know,” the man replied. He appeared to have gotten into a fight recently.

So far in this fic, he's fought a cat, a window, and a dead clown. None of which seemed to hurt him more than he did himself.

Terezi was sniffing suspiciously.

She can smell the murder in his soul.

“J-John, this is Sollux and Terezi, friends of mine.” He desperately tried to wipe his eyes.

“Are they special?”

You're all special in your own little ways. That's why you get taught in the room with all the pretty colors!

Karkat crinkled his face. “Uh, well, Terezi is an ex of mine, Sollux is just kind of an a-a-asshat.”

Fair enough description, I guess.

“Ex? So she’s special?”

Oh wait, hang on. I know where this is going, and it is seriously not cool.

“Uh, yeah, I guess you, um, c-could say that. She’s also blind, so like,” Terezi sniffed again, “Yeah.”

“I see.”

Terezi gave the most deadly serious look slightly to the left of John she could muster.

You are blind and wearing shaded glasses. Nobody can see your glare you stupid, so-far-faithful-to-canon Terezi.

Your name is John Egbert and you are going to kill Terezi Pyrope.

Why must the canon-faithful characters be the ones to die? Why can't you kill Dave or Karkat or something?

God, this isn't going to be fun.

Re: Tod Gets Sent a Fanfiction: "kawaii yaoi"

Chapter 9: 9

Summary:

ew
Notes:

(See the end of the chapter for notes.)

Goody goody, more notes

--



Terezi sniffed her way up the stairs to her apartment, tapping her dragon adorned cane along the railing. Despite being blind, Terezi was highly perceptive in matters of her relativity to her surroundings, and yet despite this she was still unfortunate enough to lose her footing one night after a couple drinks at a neighbor’s house, even after her friend had warned her to be careful. The result was an anonymous petition started to create an added railing for the helpless blind girl, as well as a less than anonymous lawsuit.

I am so sad that you're the next to die, because that is so wonderfully in-canon that I could cry

Terezi smirked silently at the memory, feeling around for the door. She stepped inside easily, quietly noting the slight jam as she closed it.



She wiped her feet on the mat. She hung up her coat in the corner. She sat down on the couch.

Yes the line breaks are that long in this chapter.

No, I don't know why.

“I know you’re there, Johnny-poo,” Terezi sang, smirking.

My god, "Johnny-poo" is the best thing anyone has said in this fanfic yet

Silence.

More goddamn silence. Silence, lead, sugar, and schizophrenia, all the rhetorical ingredients for a wonderful fanfiction.

Terezi got up slowly, wetting her lips. “Hm? Nothing to say?”



Silence.

Apparently not. Which is for the better, those word salad segments are terrible for my eyes and sanity.

She tapped her cane impatiently, clicking her tongue. “You’re trespassing, you know. That’s against the law. I could have you persecuted.” Terezi snapped her feet forward, grinning a challenge into the darkness. “But I’ll make you a deal.” She removed a hand from a pocket, revealing a coin. “Heads, you turn yourself in for murder and I completely forget about the trespassing. Tails, I kill you, blame it on self-defense for said trespassing, and forget all about about the murder. How’s that sound?”

You and I both know that isn't going to end well, but please do that.

Terezi could barely hear the breathing in front of her.

Well at least we know for certain someone's there. Either John or some equally-creepy stalker.

“I’ll take that as a yes.”



She flipped the coin.



The quarter hit the ground with a clang that rang throughout the room.



Terezi stood noiselessly and listened to the awkward shuffling.

I dunno what it is with this fic and the noise/silence dichotomy, but I hate it.

I hate these long line-breaks, too.

“Well, Johnny-boy? Are you going to tell me what it was or not? I’m blind.”

"I'm blind and arrogant so I'm going to sit here and hope you don't lie to me. Not that it matters anyway because Terezi makes her own luck, like that guy from the Batman movie."

There was slight shift as John bent down, and a louder one as Terezi slammed her cane on John’s neck.

Yeah, see? That's how it's done.

--



The world swung and screamed and John saw stars as Karkat shrieked and shrieked and shrieked



“I CHALLENGE YOU TO A DUEL GOOD SIR”

Nobody in this story would ever say that.

I don't care whose mouth you envisioned this escaping from, you have disappointed me.

“FIGHT ME”



“FIGHT ME”

I STILL don't know who's talking.

Karkat was kicking at him and howling “GET UP YOU USELESS FUCKER KILL HER KILL HER FUCK KILL KILL”

"FUCK KILL FUCK KILL, NOT NECESSARILY IN THAT ORDER"

Two hands reach and grab and bend at him, pulling him up, vermillion eyes cackling with inversed teeth spiraling into hell.

Who in the hell has vermillion eyes? Is this another hallucination or did Terezi get colored contacts?

Pink flecks of disillusionment shot and twisted the scene caught swiftly by a peppermint smirks congealed blood and her eyes twinkled the most perfect color to reveal the most perfect teeth

I have no clue what is happening, but I have to say this is somewhat creepy. Four for you, fanfic author.

Her blood slipped through invisible veins that blasted through the air, penetrating his every vessel. Karkat licked a long line down John’s back.



“Duck,” he whispered.

Can't you feel his sexual tension in those words

Suddenly there was blood.

Sounds like you didn't duck

John saw red stars and was consumed by chitterling, howling laughter from every angle. She was a grey mass of flesh, a horned demon, a God of the Underworld.

Again, a valid description

Karkat was a siren.



john



The sticky wet scent of flesh being pounded by a fist, the taste of blood in his mouth. Liquorish lips grinned mockingly from the ground as a hand slipped inside of the John’s transparent bone casing of a sack, gripped him, gripped him and killed.

Is Terezi winning? I can't tell

john



A neck twists and bites and John groans in pain, Karkat shaking him and hollering and howling obscenities. Eyes caked in blood glimmer and snicker and sneer. John raises his hands.



john



Thumbs press downwards, inwards, sideways, the beautiful hackings and slashing and wickedness of blood. The scratch of nails. The sound of Karkat cutting her in half.

I... guess not??

john



“John.”



fuck her eyes out john

Eww, let's not

“Fuck them until her skull breaks.”

I have no idea who you are, but I just said no

He’d never seen such perfect red before. He groaned, pushing her head back. Blood streamed like ribbons. Pink melted and sloshed like cookies and cream. Her eyeglasses lay broken besides him.

Image

COOKIES AND CREAM IS NOT PINK. PLEASE DO NOT DESCRIBE THIS SHIT LIKE THAT

do it now



She was so beautiful like this, so broken and jeweled and wretched and wretched. Her face was a ruby of gore.



DO IT NOW FUCKER

Just once, I'd actually enjoy having some nice, vanilla, consensual homoerotic sex between two consenting, LIVING beings.

To be able to imagine the flushed coarseness of a hollow skull. John moaned, his head lulling to the side. Hands were all around him. Faces were watching. Deeper harder fuck fucK FUCK

Well, now we know John's into exhibitionism...

Image
Image
Image

A final splatter of blood.

A final shot for the sanity lost here

“Do you feel better now?” Karkat whispered, caressing him. “Do you feel better now that you fucked that whore’s face?” what would your father say what would your father say wipe that blood off your dick you slut can you taste her brains splattered on the wall

I don't think he'd say that

I HOPE he wouldn't say that

“Look behind you.”



John looked.

If there's not a policeman or a witness I'm going to be sad

On the left wall, behind the carcass of a red peppermint girl, was a list in brightly colored arrangements.

The list said, “FR13NDS”. Below were addresses.

Oh my god, it's worse than I thought

It wasn’t hard to find a pen.

It was right there under her liver. Impossible to miss, really.

Chapter 10: Chapter 10

Summary:

i was bribed into finishing this with johnkat bdsm please thank your local johnkat bdsm provider for the next three chapters

I'm scared. Not only because of the promise of bondage but also because the chapter title has more than a number in it.

Karkat is crying.

What a twist

He hasn’t gotten out of bed. He hasn’t turned on the TV. He hasn’t taken a shower.

Now if only he had pot pies, he'd be the perfect Gamzee analogue

What Karkat has done for the past three days has consisted solely of staring at the ceiling and sobbing.



He needed to eat.



But Karkat was crying.

What is this section of text. Seriously, what the hell is it.

Karkat fisted the sheets and hissed,

ALL THIS GODDAMN FIC IS IS CHARACTERS FISTING THINGS THEY SHOULDN'T. STOP FISTING SHIT WITHOUT ITS CONSENT!!

drawing the covers over his face and hoping that maybe, this time, if he held them over his face long enough, he would die. He would suffocate and die and cease to exist, and he wouldn’t have to feel the pain in his lungs and throat from retching and screaming and howling and crying, crying, crying. Karkat closed his eyes and hoped he won’t open them ever again.

Foreshadowing? I hope so.

Two of Karkat’s friends died recently within one day of each other. They were both murdered. Karkat doesn’t know why, and he doesn’t know how, but he does know one thing:

And that thing is the massive boner he still gets when he thinks of John.

that it was his fault. It was his job to protect them, both of them, and he failed. He failed everyone. And there was nothing he could do to fix it. He screwed his eyes shut and prayed for death.

Damn, this is some thick foreshadowing

I hope

He didn’t hear the door open.

I've got $5 on this being the answer to Karkat's prayers. Who's willing to take me up on it?

“Which one of your friends are special?”

What a question to ask. Also, how did you find this place, Karkat never took you to his place.

Karkat could feel his eyes begin to wet again and he couldn’t find it in himself to open them. He didn’t deserve it.



“All of them,” he hissed, his voice gravel. “Fuck. All of them. All of them are special. Jesus, I can’t… I fucking—God, I did this. I did this to them, I murdered them because I didn’t realize, Terezi…” Karkat’s entire body shook. He didn’t want to live. The door clicked shut.

You know, the first two you could probably be forgiven for, but when you look back on this moment, you might realize how stupid that act was.

Your name is John Egbert and you’re almost done.

And with two chapters left, so are we.

Re: Tod Gets Sent a Fanfiction: "kawaii yaoi"

Chapter 11: 11

Dave stripped himself of his clothing and set it aside, shaking uncontrollably. He turned the knob on the shower and stepped inside. He could hear the muffled drawl of the TV in the other room that he had been too lazy to turn off and unconsciously listened in the back of his mind. He regrets this now.

Not even a sarcastic note to start us out with, this must really be the end of it.

“…and that concludes today’s special report on the president’s new stand on the conflict in Serbia, next up being an update on the new gruesome series of deaths in Essburb County.”



“Gruesome is right, Sarah. Police aren’t releasing any information on the current suspect, however, we do have the list of the new victims as of this morning and there are nine, that’s right, nine new homicides reported ladies and gentlemen. Police are baffled at the apparent speed and thoroughness of the killer on the run, and are still without leads.”

Counting Karkat, that leaves three trolls left. Chances are Sollux is one of them, because this fic hates me just that much.

Dave shivers. He scrubs at his skin, trying to get the red off. Blood all over the floor the ceiling the walls smiling at him grinning god don’t you even know what you did what you’ve done here Dave scratched at himself, nails against skin, and turned up the water.

Good god it must be contagious

“Gruesome murders. Just gruesome. The bodies were decapitated and disemboweled—“



John is grinning at him, grinning malevolently and swinging a head by the hair in front of him. Swingling and cackling as intestines writhe like worms beneath him. There is no god

Not in this fic, there isn't.

“—dismembered—“



John was playing with him, the face of a boy so scared and so lost replaced by sadism and obsession and lunacy and Dave’s own failure



“--penetrated and sexually befouled--”



Still faces and bodies spiderwebbed in white liquid, John was still smiling



“—molested—“



John was still smiling

People tend to do that after orgasm.

Even after as disgusting orgasm as that.

Dave choked back a noise and slammed his fist against the shower wall, repulsed at the red that trailed behind it, screaming and pulling his hair to remove the mental images linked by association. He hated that color.



He hated himself.

lol, geddit? Becuz Dave is associated with red? And he is implied to have self-image issues in the canon?

Sir and/or madam, I understand what you're attempting to do with this nod at canon characterization, but it does not absolve the trespasses you have commited, and nor does it forgive the crime of killing Terezi so ambiguously.

Our ninjas will be with you shortly.

One day before John’s father died, before John broke down, before John Needed Him, before they moved in together and Dave watched over him and they started a business and the world fell apart,

Dave received a letter.

But unfortunately, due to the circumstances, Dave couldn't accept his term in Hogwarts.

Dear Mr. Dave Strider,



He stepped out of the shower.



I am so sorry for putting all of this upon you.

So nice to see that Dad has at least a half-decent relation to canon

He got dressed. He hung the rope. He got the chair.

Umm...

Make sure John is okay.



He failed.

But you can still fix it? The police exist you know.

Dave and John’s father swung together in the silence.

I don't know what you've done to Dave, but I don't think he's okay.

Your name is Karkat Vantas and there is someone at the door.

It is Rose and she is here to save the day with the only living ounce of brain left in this story.

Chapter 12: 12

Notes:

(See the end of the chapter for notes.)

Notes but no summary? Damn, I was kind of looking forward to your last sarcastic summary.

Karkat Vantas stared at the ceiling, barely acknowledging the sound of a creaking door hinge and footsteps.



He could hear the soft waves of movement and breathing from across the room. He couldn’t even begin to care.

Karkat, I know you're in a spiral of depression, but you're one of the last remaining survivors and you probably need a better grasp on your survival instincts.

Especially after ALL of your friends die. I'd assume you'd figure out who's next.

“Karkat?”



Shock and recognition flowed through him at the sound of the voice. He almost opened his eyes.



“…John?”



“Yes, Karkat. It’s me.”

"I've brought you those colors of blood you never seemed to really pick up on and that I never bothered to explain."

A hand grazed itself through Karkat’s hair and over his face, comforting him. Karkat shuddered.

Dude, this is your wet dream, and you're shuddering?

You're either smarter or hornier than I thought, and I hope we don't get to learn which it is.

He wanted to get up and look at him, and he wanted to sink into the covers and become invisible in wretched horro.

Wretched Horro, coming to a black metal music festival near you

He was capable of neither due to the lack of nutrition he’d allowed himself to have in the past week.

That is both physically and mentally unhealthy. Where is Sollux to pay you back for that force-feeding?

So Karkat lay there, unmoving, pathetic, and useless. He screwed his eyes shut further.



“Shh. It’s ok.” John lightly caressed his face and smoothed his hair. Karkat shivered. He felt fingers ghost themselves over his arms and lightly raise them above his head. “It’s ok now, Karkat. Everything’s fine.”

"Everything's fine because everyone's dead"

One arm was raised to the left side of the headboard and the other to the right.

Wait, I thought John was a sub?

Karkat felt himself breathe in a shaky breath as he sensed the coarseness of twine around his wrists. Pleated fingertips rested themselves on his lips and teeth made their way to his ear. “You’re so wonderful, Karkat. I’m so thankful. For everything.”

"And what do good boys get?....

Come on, you asked me this earlier, you should know the answer."

And then he was gone.

Good boys get stood up, apparently.

Karkat still couldn’t open his eyes. He felt an invisible force, a ton of bricks and a cold snake slithering in his intestines.

You haven't eaten anything in a week, so I have to assume that's a tapeworm.

He couldn’t open his eyes. He wouldn’t dare, and he didn’t know why.

Because somewhere, deep down inside you, you have a brain

His legs were carefully lifted and placed at the respective sides of the bed, twine attaching them to the excursions at the bottom footrest.

Wait hang on, I thought John was gone

There was a sudden shift of weight around him and he could feel the pressure of legs around his middle.

No wait, were you SERIOUS about the bdsm?

“You’re so fantastic, Karkat.”

Good god you were.

Suddenly I don't want living people sex anymore go back to the skullfucking.

He opened his eyes.

BAD IDEA

John Egbert hovered above him, eyes dulled and smile soft and kind. His body was framed by bones and sharp angles, highlighted by a plethora of bruises and cuts. The skin on his hands were raw and his eyes sunk deep into the back of his skull as he looked at him with diluted admiration.

The living image of sex

“Thank you Karkat,” John whispered. Karkat found himself incapable of breathing, his organs suddenly stone.

There is no verb there. Did they become stone? Did they excrete stone? Did they grind up stone into a fine powder?

Questions for the future, mysteries for now.

John reached a hand above Karkat and hovered his palm above his neck, lightly pulling at the cloth coving his chest before undoing the buttons that held it together. Something was horribly wrong.

I hope it's some stray viscera Karkat missed on his first look-down of John

That’s when the gag was placed in his mouth.

Hoo baby, it's a party now!

Karkat heard himself start to squeak and pull against the binds, but John just shushed him and reached for something out of view.



“You’re the best, Karkat.”



“I love you, Karkat.”



A hand played with his hair and stroked him.

Yeah son, get sentimental. Guys like that.

“I have to do this. You were on the list. It’s the only way I can complete the circle, Karkat. Karkat, I love you. You’re so special.”

Wait what

Karkat could feel himself scream.

I don't blame you, man.

“I wanted to thank you,” John said, rummaging for something. “If you hadn’t told me about Gamzee I would have had no idea where to start.”



Wait, wha—

“MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMF!”

Yeah, that's the noise most people make when they get penetrated.

Karkat felt his intestines being ripped apart as he watched his own red blood gush from his chest in unimaginable horror.

Although I will say this is quite an unorthodox penetration, even for bondage

John didn’t seem all that phased.

That's because in this universe John might not have a soul.

“I did a good job. I liked it,” he said, twisting the knife in Karkat’s insides, “when I killed him. When you told me to kill him.”



Tears streamed down his face and he thrashed against the binds and John, screeching and screeching and screeching.



“And then when you told me to kill Terezi. And everyone else. All of your friends. All of the special ones.” John lifted the knife and thrust it down again and again, hacking him. “I liked it when I killed them. I liked it.”

Thank god SOMEONE did

He stabbed Karkat’s chest again. “Thank you.” He shoved his hand inside the gaping wound in Karkat’s stomach, digging with his fingernails. “There was so much red.”



Karkat could see spots of light flashing above him as he struggled. He could feel his bones breaking and his spine shattering. He could feel himself die.



“Thank you.”

Image

John kissed him.

d'awwwwww

He listened to Karkat bleed in silence.

More goddamn silence. Fuck you for making it happen again.

Your name is Karkat Vantas and you’ve killed everyone you’ve ever known.

You killed maybe 7 people, John handled most of it though, so don't worry, you'll only have a manslaughter charge on your soul when you descend into fanfic hell.

Notes:

ok whatever now read this surrealitycomic(.)com no you dont have a choice just do it i think youve looked long and hard enough at gay boys doing it in literature you need a break

I don't know about you, fellow readers, but I feel perfectly fine. Feel free to follow the authors advice if you want to though, no skin off my organs.

And with that, it's all over. John's killing spree is at an end and we don't even get a tasteful vignette of him in a padded cell gibbering his life away.

Or Rose, we don't get Rose.

And for that, at least, I welcome you all, dear readers, to join me in a final "fuck you"

I need to go find some more whiskey.
