CRUCIBLE OF CREATIVE POTENTIAL: The Homestuck Request Meme
ACT TWO

(also known as SHITSTAIN ASSMASTER)


By popular demand, a general request meme for MSPA, at long last. Have an idea you want to see drawn or written? This is the place to ask. Both romantic (of any kind, het or slash) and general prompts are accepted. Reply to those comments with art or fic or comics or pesterlogs!

Put characters or pairings or whatever in the subject line of your comment, it makes for easy scanning. If you are here to request something for our musicians, put [MUSIC] in instead.

HERE'S HOW IT WORKS:
> No, you do NOT need to sign up for Livejournal to submit prompts or fill them.
> You may comment signed in or anonymously. Anonymous is actually preferred when prompting to keep the spirit of this kind of meme, but anything goes for fills (since you might want to put your name to your work, and that's cool).
> For every request you make, try to fill someone else's.
> Requests can be filled more than once.
> This meme is SAFE FOR WORK. Graphic sex and violence--and other potentially offensive things people may feel nervous about having on their browsing history--is not allowed and will be screened/deleted. This being an offsite meme, restrictions are much more relaxed than the forums; referencing the act is fine with me, just be sensible and don't go into detail and we will be 0k.
> This meme is also primarily about Homestuck canon! There are a lot of talented people with really cool original characters and fan adventures lurking around, but unfortunately this is not the place to request fanart or music for them. Again, this is a flexible rule. Speculative work, like Lands that do not exist in the story yet, or imp prototypings, or some random black carapace guys hanging out in Derse, or Sollux's sadly non-canon bee-bear lusus are fine. Try to make it look like it's connected to Homestuck at least and you won't get beaned, basically.
> Be nice, have fun.

IF YOU ARE POSTING AN IMAGE ANONYMOUSLY:
Use this code instead of a regular img src tag to make it appear on the page. You no longer need to link your fanart!

Rose/Dave

Dave makes the mistake of falling asleep and wakes up to find Rose has stolen his glasses for purely scientific purposes, of course. He has to resort to some pretty desperate (and surprising) methods to get them back.

Am I the only person who still ships this? I feel alone.

TT: The sky is so pretty tonight.
TT: I don't believe I have ever seen such a lovely sunset.
TG: oh come on
TT: Really! It shades all the way from red to indigo.
TT: It's quite marvellous.
TT: Thank you.
TG: i did not set your oceans on fire so you could have a pretty fucking sunset and you know it
TT: Quite clever of you to realize an oil slick on the surface would be flammable.
TT: However, it is still water underneath.
TG: fine
TG: i didnt want to do this
TG: but its time
TT: Oh, this should be good.
TG: once upon a time there was a nerd named joe zazzer pam
TT: What.
TG: he was the nerdiest fucking kid you ever laid eyes on
TG: zero chance of interaction with anyone with one X chromosome much less two
TG: maybe 3 or 4 but i doubt it
TT: Oh my god.
TG: oh no when will i ever find someone to like me he wailed
TG: for i have a pure heart and could be an awesome catch if only i combed my hair
TT: Stop this travesty.
TG: so one day he was going to school dreading the atomic wedgie that lay inevitably in his future
TT: I NOTICE THAT STYLISTIC FLOURISH STRIDER
TG: when across the way he saw the most glorious creature he had ever laid eyes on omg
TT: You're NOT.
TT: Also, redundancy, Strider!
TG: it was joe frigglish the star mathelete
TT: You have clearly not ever read even a word of the books.
TG: damn right i havent
TG: anyway this was clearly destiny since they were both named joe
TT: Have you ever even read a "slash" pastiche?
TG: i dont even know what the fuck that is
TG: nice try lalonde
TG: joes smoldering eyes met his and pam knew this was meant to be
TG: and then the jocks strung him up the flagpole by his boxer shorts cause he was named pam
TG: they had little hearts and wands on them
TG: the whole school pointed and laughed at this flagrant display of homosexuality and pure lame
TG: except for joe frigglish
TT: Oh, god.
TT: Have you been reading Twific, Strider?
TG: manfully joe leapt up and bit the flagpole rope in half with his perfect pearly whites
TG: and caught pam just before he hit the ground
TT: Oh my God, you're not denying it.
TG: pam looked up at his savior breathless
TG: at his perfect lips and sparkly violet eyes
TT: Ah HA!
TG: oh my hero you have saved me said pam
TG: we can go out if you are less lame said joe
TG: now go away im brooding
TG: pam stared after him and knew he must heal the pain in joes wounded heart
TT: Seriously, Strider. What in the name of all that is unholy have you been reading?
TG: i want my shades back
TT: An admirable effort, Strider.
TT: However, you made four miscalculations.
TT: One: You presumed that I had not built up an immunity to badfic over time.
TT: We have a name for it, Strider.
TT: It is much like building an immunity to iocaine powder.
TG: oh shut up that was complete horseshit
TG: undiluted crap with a side order of pain
TT: Two: You forgot that nearly every sin is forgivable if if it committed in the name of irony.
TT: And the day that Dave Strider ceases to be ironic is...
TT: I was going to say that it was the day he was dead, but that seemed both needlessly morbid and likely to be untrue.
TT: You will definitely die ironically.
TG: probably multiple times too
TT: Three: You have revealed to me that you have read my private journals.
TT: Thus earning my genuine wrath.
TG: your genuine wrath
TG: man im a fucking katrina of hate here
TG: hurricane of fury the size of the great red spot
TG: engulfing fucking planets
TT: Four: I know forbidden secrets that could rip your mind apart.
TT: Don't make me unleash them.
TG: great more horrorterrors fucking fantastic
TG: bring it on
TT: Don't say I didn't warn you.
TT: http://outerarchiveofourown.eth/archives/314326127314/www.puppet-pals.com/works/fists_of_love.htm
TG: what the hell youve got internet archives
TT: Don't read it, Strider.
TT: I genuinely fear for your sanity should the existence of this work make itself known to you.
TG: oh come on whats the worst it could
TT: Strider?

"All right, what the fuck will it be," said Strider, glaring at her with those terribly curious red eyes. Not just the irises; his eyes were bloodshot, the skin around them flushed and raw. "Am I gonna have to grovel? Beg and plead? Kiss your fucking feet?"

"It's impolite to bring a drawn sword into a lady's house," she pointed out.

Strider visibly stifled a scream, returning the sword to his sylladex with considerable force. "Happy? So what else am I gonna have to do?"

"Nothing," said Rose.

"What?"

"Just stand there, and do nothing."

Strider shook his head, foot tapping impatiently, jittery. "What the fuck, how does that even--"

"Shh. Stand there, and do nothing."

He opened his mouth again, and closed it at her glare. "Fine," he muttered, and folded his arms.

Rose counted the seconds, on an internal wager with herself. Ten seconds. Twenty. At thirty, his arms started to unfold, just a little.

"Look--"

"Shh," she insisted, and he closed his mouth again, glaring murder at her.

At sixty, his face started to twitch, just a little, away from its mask. He almost spoke up again, but she had him in a competition, now, and he wasn't going to let himself lose.

At eighty, he started to pace; "I said nothing," she reminded him, and he subsided with an audible hiss.

"I don't have time for--"

"Shh!"

He closed his eyes, foot tapping, which she was tempted to disallow but let him have, even though it might drag this out yet further. Ninety seconds; one hundred, and the foot-tapping started to slow, his eyes squeezing shut tighter.

At one hundred and thirty, he fell to his knees, which appeared to catch him completely by surprise.

She shook her head; silly, idiot boy. "You can't run away from it forever," she said. "You can't run forever. I know we've got a lot to do. So very much to do. But you've got to rest."

"You're fucking shitting me," said Dave, voice more than a little strangled. "That's what this was about? This whole goddamn thing?!"

"Would anything less drastic have succeeded? You are amazingly determined." Rose knelt down, pulling the glasses from her pocket, safe and sound. "I know it hurts. I know it's easier not to deal with it. Perhaps we can't deal with it; we may not be afforded that chance. But you can't keep going at this pace. You can't. Don't think I don't know what you've been doing."

Dave stared at her; Rose slipped the glasses onto his face, pushing his hair back behind his ears.

"Dave," she said. "I can't make it through this without you. So rest."

"...I'm fine," he said, voice already starting to blur with sleepiness.

"Dave, don't make me tuck you in."

"...Fuck it, whatever, have it your way," Dave muttered, and curled up into a ball.

Rose rolled her eyes. "We have perfectly servicable furniture, you know."

"Nmph."

Rose sighed, getting up to find a blanket. There was an analysis in this, of why precisely he would choose the floor right now when multiple more comfortable alternatives were close enough at hand, but-- she was getting exhausted herself.

It wouldn't go on much longer. That ought to be comforting, if double-edged, on the whole.

And yet-- utterly irredeemable as this timeline was, there were things she could swear she was going to miss.

When she woke up, he was gone; but so was the breakfast she'd captchalogued for him, which indicated that this was the first unalloyed victory she had attained in quite some time. She checked for messages, as she did reflexively by now, every time she awoke; she feared waking up to find herself alone. He had been, for a day or two, while she was still trying to wake up, and she still shuddered remorsefully at the thought of it.

TG: so i still dont know what the fuck that was
TG: or why you did that
TG: or why it took so goddamn long
TG: or why you couldnt have just said something like a normal person
TG: except youre not a normal person duh thats one of the dumbest things ive said this week
TG: but
TG: thanks
TG: even if it was stupid and i didnt need to waste any more time and this is all not gonna have happened in a couple weeks
TG: thanks
TG: anyway were gonna clear out another half a level or so of lohac
TG: ill bring him back soon

Rose looked around in alarm, and realized, for the first time, that Mutie was still missing. Damn it, Strider knew she didn't like him going somewhere so dangerous...! Was he really serious?

TG: couple days
TG: maybe a week but lets be nice itll be a week my time
TG: im magnanimous and shit
TG: fucking courtly up in here
TG: anyway you guys have fun
TG: see you in a few

"You guys?" Rose murmured, with a sinking feeling.

"Hee hee hee..."

Rose's head whipped upward. Calsprite was floating around the ceiling, staring down, teeth chattering in his mindless laughter.

TT: STRIIIIIIIIIIIDEEEEERRR!!!!

Elsewhere, Dave grinned, scratching Mutie between the ears. Maybe everything came back to a balance after all.

Going unnoticed can be kind of a gift of mine ;) Not sure why I'm anoning for this comment, as I'm going to post a link to an AO3 version as soon as I get out from under a bit of schoolwork (should be way more readable with colors, that might help), and also I really probably am awfully obvious. Not my first Dave/Rose pesterlog mindscrew fic, amusingly enough. XD

Anyway, glad you liked it! I am such a sucker for doomed-timeline fic XD

It was a while back, in my defense XD Guess I ought to update things a bit, but when I drifted out of DW fandom I wasn't totally sure how to handle the transition. Could at least link to my AO3 account... which I should also update with the rest of the ff.net fics that don't completely suck... aaah, it's been a while XD

ohgod i think my ff.net account might be linked from there. well, some of the stuff from this decade is okay?? XD

Usually I don't plug like this, but for a fic with so many pesterlogs, formatting can be really, REALLY helpful, so for full color (and fewer breaks due to character limits!):
