Chapter Archive - FAQ.

This is unbetaed, so it’s not going on AO3 yet.

11k long.

"Is that a house, or a castle?"

Dave snorts as he gets out of the car. “Castles are prettier. This is a pile of giant cement pizza boxes, dude.” The pile isn’t even straight and even, there are corners sticking our everywhere.

Dirk doesn’t crack a smile or even indicate that he heard as he extracts himself from the passenger’s seat, even though he was the one who first made that comparison, ten or fifteen years ago. He’s been monosyllabic ever since they picked him up for mandatory Strilonde Bonding Time on pain of Aunt Romy.

Crouched beside Dave on the driveway, Karkat is still staring up doubtfully.

"Besides," Dave continues, "it’s not that big, just kinda sprawly."

"There’s a tower.”

"It’s an observatory!" Roxy calls out from the other side of the bridge, and waves. Dave vaguely wonders how she heard them so well, with the little running stream between them and the waterfall just behind the corner where she’s standing, but he sticks his hands in his pockets and follows Dirk.

"Oh, an observatory!" Karkat replies, sarcastic, as he makes his cautious way across. "Whew. Totally different! Especially the pompous levels."

Anonymous asked:

what's wrong with the name gary stu? or do you just not like it?

vastderp answered:

it was picked for such a superficial reason, to rhyme with Mary Sue, and it sounds nothing like any name someone would choose for such a character. Gary? Stu??? these are potbellied, hairy factory workers, not wish fulfillment on legs. it’s twee and cutesy in the wrong way.

call him Sephiroth Johnson, call him Akita Inutama, call him Chance Storm, call him anything that sounds like someone really trying hard to make a cool character, just please don’t call him Gary Stu!
