“Is ah, is he still watching?”
Jake slides the strap through the buckle, tightens it. “Pretending not to,” he says with a grin. “Don’t worry about it, chap, there’s no fault with a spot of good, honest work. There, you’re set to go.”
“I know,” you answer. “Just wish he wouldn’t stare.”
Jake’s moved on to Rufioh, helping him arrange the tack where he can’t reach. His sun-browned hands move steadily, almost on auto-pilot.
“Just ignore him,” Rufioh says. “He’ll get over it someday.” A pause. “Probably,” he amends, with a wry smile and a shrug.
A snap of leather, Jake steps back to survey his work. Adjusts the harness over Rufioh’s back and nods to himself. “Quite surprised he showed up as early as he did. Whatever floats his boat, I suppose,” he gives a careless shrug, dismissing it. “Ready to get hooked up, then?”
LOOK AT THESE ADORABLE NERDS
Aradia Megido is most best in very verse forever
Yo so you know what I just realized
assuming that the temporal destinations of the trolls’ meteors were a constant, there’s a really strong case to be made for Beforan Aradia being raised by Exiles and possibly functioning as an Exile for one or more of the Beforan Sgrub players
im sorry i . i drew like five whole transformers trolls. i’m not putting these on my art blog because it’s awful and also they’re not good drawings. i was going to do more, even, but i couldn’t work out what kanaya’s vehicle mode should be. i cannot believe that is a sentence i typed.
homestuck au where aradia is rapunzel and like
a prince will climb all the way up her hair and hell pant before looking up to pull himself into the window
aND ARADIA IS JUST RIGHT IN HIS FACE WITH HER :D EXPRESSION AND HE SCREAMS AND FALLS TO HIS DEATH AND SHE THINKS ITS HILARIOUS
SHES HAD LIKE TEN PEOPLE TRY TO SAVE HER THEY JUST KEEP FUCKING DYING
And then there’s this guy:
man if I ever wrote humanstuck fic, I’d totally write one that started out with the “Aradia is dead and existed mainly so that Sollux can be sad now” conceit
And then a couple chapters in it would turn out that what had actually happened was that (for reasons??? possibly only known to herself, maybe they had a bad family situation maybe Damara’s just unstable) Damara faked both their deaths and kidnapped Aradia when they were younger
and then several years later Aradia resurfaces and everyone’s like ARADIA YOU’RE ALIVE! …and can quote the value of a human kidney on the black market, lovely.
