[ Rose spends an amount of time in the library. Not an absurd amount, because it has limited books of your preference (horror, dark magic, old men in beards waving wands, etc) but an amount. She also drags Dave there on a frequent basis, because goddamn that boy needs to write his shitty essays under her supervision.

Unfortunately, this time it means a 3am library fun visit because SOMEONE didn't text their sister that they had a 60% of their grade essay due tomorrow until today. Why does she even try. Why. ]


I'm going for coffee. Do not take a nap while I'm away. Keep writing, and by writing I do not mean rapping.
parodeity: (NO 🎧 that sounds dumb)

[personal profile] parodeity 2016-04-26 05:10 am (UTC)(link)
[ Rose sure does make essay writing FUN. By which Dave means the opposite of that. She edits all his metaphors and won't let him, like, compare communism to pop music and what is even the point if he can't ramble on about shit for fifty pages in comic sans.

He's not even sure how she found out about the paper due tomorrow (John might have told her, the fucking traitor) but she had swept down on his dorm, demanded to see his paper, and then pulled him all the way to the library. At 3am. In his fucking pajamas. ]


Idk why you feel the need to stranglehold my creativity into Rosespeak for school papers, it isn't like Mom doesn't write scientific documents the same way I do school shit.

[ liek omg lol i discovered a new genome u guys ]

Also I want apple juice.

[ COFFEE IS ACCEPTABLE ONLY WHEN APPLE JUICE ISN'T AN OPTION? ]

[ The point is YOU NEED TO PASS YOUR CLASSES, DAVE.

As for how Rose discovered this paper, it was indeed John. But don't worry, it was under duress. She paid for his lunch and he didn't want to owe her. No one wants to owe her. You make a person pay you back by attending CthulhuCon one time... ]


Mom isn't getting graded by stuffy old men who gain perverse pleasure from failing their students based on arbitrary linguistics and the ability to concisely yet eloquently make a point, or lack there of.

[ Also Rose has likely edited some of their mom's scientific articles, be real. ]

Apple juice doesn't contain enough caffeine, but fine.

[ OFF SHE GOES... behave dave. or else. ]

[ human au?? or trolls live with humans au idk it's your turn to pick BUT ANYWAY.

papers are the worst. they are even more horrible the night before they're due and you had to stay up two days straight to quickly finish what was supposed to take an entire semester to write. but karkat had thought it would be fine? professors always tell you that you won't be able to write up an essay last minute, and then you end up doing it anyway.

well, it turned out karkat was able to write this essay last minute. he just had to almost kill himself to do so and he is sure he is probably crying blood at this point. but at long last, he is finally done, and all he has to do is print the stupid thing. unfortunately, the printer he has in his dorm room is out of ink and he doesn't have the money to buy a new cartridge for it. so, karkat goes to the shared one in his dorm's rec room to finally be done with this god awful assignment. at two in the morning.

of course, the printer fucking breaks.

karkat doesn't realize what happened at first. he checks to see if it has ink (it does), if it ran out of paper (it didn't), if it's plugged in (it is), and if there is some sort of paper jam (there isn't). yet it. won't print. after about half an hour of hopeless struggling against the printer, karkat starts to panic. because he? needs to finish this? his class is at 9 am??? ok, karkat, it's fine. just breathe. breathe.

nope he is freaking out. ]


Oh god? Oh god oh god it's not printing I am fucked, I am so fucked. This printer has fucked me over so well that I have to ask for its hand in marriage now oh my fuck.

[ he does not notice the other person in the room. ]
parodeity: (HEH 🎧 sure thing)

[ it can be a human au for ~variety~ i guess welcome to the world of not having horns and sleeping in beds like normal people, karkat!!!

it's like two in the morning and no one else should be in the rec room, but. it's college. and college students keep notoriously fucked up hours, and dave strider never kept hours that were that normal to begin with. his roommate keeps actually standard hours (john has like a bedtime still and gets grouchy if he doesn't keep to it) but thankfully dave is an expert at being quiet in getting in and out so he barely ever bothers john when the dude's trying to sleep.

that's actually why he's out here, though, dicking around on his laptop in a corner in the most comfortable armchair when one of the other guys from his floor starts flipping his shit. ]


I'm pretty sure that's, like, illegal. Marrying a printer? Although there's actually probs no legal precedent for or against it so maybe you could get in on the ground floor before someone has to make up the legal laws to stop you gettin' it on like donkey kong.

[ fuck your beds

also, karkat just very slowly looks over at dave because? he is way too calm considering this is the worst emergency of all time?? how can this dude be so chill when karkat's life is about to end because of this printer dying during his time of need? ]


Wow thanks for that advice, since that is obviously what my main problem is here. Whether or not I can have relations with this fucking printer. Crisis solved, do you want to go help me pick out a dress? I know it's like fuck o'clock in the morning but I'm sure we can find something open next to a Denny's and gas station.

[ he gives the printer a halfhearted shake. ]

[personal profile] parodeity 2016-07-08 08:31 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm not an expert, but I'm pretty sure shaking it isn't going to make it any better. In fact, that's liable to make it worse?

[ again, not a tech expert, but shaking things seems like a good way to break them, yo. ]

If you want help pickin' out a dress, though, I'm game. You'd look nice in somethin' white, or are you no longer a pure enough maiden for that? Red is always a good choice, too.

[ he's going to get something thrown at him and he will deserve it ]

[ yeah, dave is getting a stack of papers thrown at him but it's... you know, paper. so most of it just slowly flop towards the ground uselessly.

karkat watches that for a moment before turning his attention back to the printer. he is going to pretend that failure never happened. ]


My purity is none of your business, especially with how completely unhelpful you are being. Now look at this gigantic mess that you caused on top of the printer bullshit.

[ nvm the fact that karkat is the one who made the mess, but it's obviously dave's fault that it happened. ]
parodeity: (HEH 🎧 sure thing)

[personal profile] parodeity 2016-07-20 08:30 pm (UTC)(link)
Dude, you could have at least thrown a book?

[ dave don't give him tips on how to harm you? ]

Also you're the one who made the mess. And just for that, I'm not gonna let you use my printer.
alienates: art @ nymphicus (Default)

[personal profile] alienates 2016-07-20 09:50 pm (UTC)(link)
Wait, no, back up. You have a printer?

[ karkat completely ignores the part where dave says he will not let karkat use it because. THIS DUDE HAS A PRINTER!! he is saved. ]

Oh my fuck why didn't you tell me that before all of this?

[ he gestures at the mess. ]

[paris teens so its not rly a chance meeting but shhh]

[now, even if it's raining cats and dogs outside (ha ha) adrien would usually just say "fuck it" and go ahead, but this time he has very important work in his backpack. that he cannot afford to get wet. so. here he is. in a tiny alcove with dave. not that he technically minds but he kind of wanted to get home like, some time this year? so after a while of squinting vaguely (read: pouting) at the rain, he turns to dave with a shrug]


Soo... You think we can get a pizza delivered out here?

[are there better solutions. probably. is adrien just shooting the shit because bad jokes are all he knows how to do?? absolutely.]
