There's no way it's going to fit on either dreamwidth or LJ -- okay, maybe DW, but god do I not want to redo the coding right now. Maybe later. In the meantime here it is:



"Locked in," John confirmed. "All green." At least all the necessary crap for shuttle-assisted flight.

"Warhammer, prepare for launch in five, four, three…"

They were skipping a dozen steps at least. No preflight check. The hangar guys had probably done one in the hangar while someone was summoning Jake; it still wasn’t supposed to be enough.

(Excalibur was giving no pilot response. Echidna and Masamune were dead in space.)

All the pilot survival stuff like oxygen and heat checked out. He would just wing the rest.

"… one, ignition.”

The rocket roared, sound muted by Warhammer’s seals, so that John knew more by vibration than noise. A half-second later he didn’t need to feel vibrations; he felt the kick in his chest, in his neck, where for a moment it seemed he had left his organs behind, down under.

He went through his instrument checkup routine, now that it was too late to stop.

chapter 8

second half is still halfway written. this is still a pretty nice chunk of fic, about 14k.

--

John reached the hangars at a dead run. Marcia was waiting with a pickup truck; he jumped on the open back and she floored the gas. He held onto the roof as she drove through piles of crates and past hurriedly backing off mechanics, riding the bumps and swerves.

"Flight suit!" she snapped, and grabbed a bundle of cloth on the seat beside her to push it through the cab's back window at John. He stuck it under his arm just as she swerved right, almost flinging him off, and then suddenly they were pacing Warhammer's immense, prone shape as it was moved onto rails toward the launch shuttle.

John didn't have time to put his flight suit on. He stuck a corner of it between his teeth, climbed onto the cab's roof; Marcia matched her speed to the flatcar and John jumped to Warhammer's wrist. He was running up the slope of its arm in the next second.

The rails made the whole frame vibrate, but not too badly. John threw himself in a controlled slide along his mech's chest plate, slapped a hand down on the cockpit door lock, and let himself fall backward through the opening, spine first into his seat.

Oof. Read more... )

Anonymous asked: BT guys shower gangbang fantasy/embarassing wet dream?

(yay for fishing old prompts out of the abyss! weirdass floaty dream ahoy. contain vague dream porn, stealth angst and dreamy creepiness. also probably happens either during the first half of chapter 7 or before chpt7 entirely.)

--

He's walking at a fast pace in the weird alien corridors of this weird alien hive (not running, the labs will get him if he runs), turning left and right and left. He's alone, it's weird, he should find John (he should enjoy being alone but being alone here isn't safe, the labs will get him). He doesn't know where John is though, but yes, he knows, John is where John always goes.

Anonymous asked: pre-BT equikat?

Contains: aftermath of porn, angst, hate romance. 500 words. Not BT canon, though BT!Equius does have a black crush on Karkat.

You draw yourself out of his arms, afterwards, pull yourself free. He doesn't have the strength to hold you back, of course.

His eyes almost manage it, beast-bright, unnatural, harpooning you in the chest where it churns and clenches and burns.

Anonymous asked: BT Johnkat in a jacuzzi? Or a hot spring or other such warm pool of water. To balance out your list of anime tropes! >.>

((NOT CANON FOR BATTLEFIELD TERRA. Also does not contain porn. Alas. roughly 1000 words.))

--

Dirk had explained, somewhat, that the pools were for relaxing in -- and he'd been dubious but after an afternoon spent with the aliens' war council he was just about ready to try anything that would take him off the edge.

Anything that wasn't going up to Mister Strider and beg for a quick pap, that was.

"You scumfucking highbloods," he commented, hands on his (clothed thank fuck) hips, a single toe in the holy shit that's warm water. Never mind relaxing, you'd melt in there. And who the hell went swimming to relax anyways, apart from gill-lickers.

It'd been five or six perigees. Aliens were still weirdos.

Silly John&Jade pesterlog that I don't know whether it's actually canon for the fic, but it cracked me up, so here it is.

My sense of humor is very childish I know. .__.

(if the coding is wrong on livejournal, argh. it's fine on dreamwidth. D:)
-------

JH: he's managing okay though, right?
JD: john seriously i think after more than a week he knows how to take a shower without you!!!
JD: i promise i wont drown him even a little bit :pp

JH: well you'd have to sneak into his stall for that, and after how much he nagged me to shower on the girls' side today i think he might bite you first.
JH: but seriously wtf, i really didn't think it bothered him that much to shower on the guys' side.
JH: do you think he's like trans or something? oh no, i've been calling him by the wrong pronoun all along!
JH: her. i mean her.

JD: X'DDDD
JD: OR MAYBE HE WAS TIRED OF HAVING HIS BOY PARTS OGLED.

JH: goddamn it not you too!!!!! I'm so TIRED of this joke!
JD: ... :X
JD: i... meant... dirk...

JH: oh.
JH: wait, what, dirk ogles him in the shower??????

This is not canon! XD Someone prompted Noahh with BT - Pillowforts (which was already eeeee <3 anon) and then she drew a cute pic and then she complained that they hadn’t kissed yet.

This is so not canon for Battlefield Terra. But there are kisses in it. And enough fluff to choke a bull. If I wasn’t sleep-deprived to hell and back I would have imploded before delivering up that much cute, and even then there’s a lot of ridiculousness and stealth angst in it.

1700 words.

Karkat has been looking dangerously depressed the last couple of days. Not even manta rays and baby penguins bitchslapping each other into holes cheer him up anymore. He just stares into nothingness and sighs when John tries to prod him awake.

He won't put on the telepathic headset, either. Not even angrily, just a tired, don't bother wave of his hand.

The situation is pretty dire! (the situation is terrifying; what if he falls into a depression from being cut off from his friends and country with no hope of ever going back, what if he goes back to catatonia land. Those what ifs are too much. John is pretending very hard he can fix this.) (John has to fix this.)

Plan B is to sit on Karkat until he agrees to talk it out. Plan A is a little subtler.
(Not a LOT subtler, but.)

askerian: scribbled cute picture of naruto hugging sasuke and sakura (T7_Ugly_chibis)
In the last week John had started collecting objects he could afford to see brutally destroyed. Not for Karkat's weirdo nest, but to throw over the foot of his bed and wake him up when he was in the middle of a nightmare, before morning-zombie Dave decided to stumble out of bed and wake the alien up his own special way. They did not have enough towels on the whole island to sponge up that much blood.

(John had made the mistake of lobbing his own pillow exactly once. Jake and Dirk were still finding bits and pieces of memory foam in their sheets four days later.)

Over on Tumblr I had a round of "Ask my characters a question" meme.

I uh think i'll have to split the answers into several posts.

This one's for Battlefield Terra answers.

Anonymous asked you:
BT: Nepeta and Equius and their kinky pale cockpit romp please?


Weird enough while this prompt seems made for either humor or horribly adorable fluff instead angst came out. What, self, I don’t understand you. Also it’s more of the scene BEFORE the mindmeld porn, because the mindmeld porn would have been spoilertastic. That makes me sad, I love mindmeld scenes. ;;

A note: I am dancing around something possibly spoilerific, if I ever manage to mention it in-fic. I know what I’m not mentioning, and kinda hint at it, but I’m too close and can’t tell if that makes the fic too confusing. If it does, my bad, sorry.

With a mighty roar, the furrifying space lioness pounces on her prey from above! )

1) I was doing a timestamp meme on tumblr and it was supposed to be quick snippets and welp two oneshots, 2.5k total. OKAY THEN WHY NOT.

2) I'm going on vacation! I will have a laptop but probably no connection. We might be here two weeks, I don't know yet, depends on when the parents will get bored and want to come home. But anyway! Fics.


Sequel to Awake at Night, the Dad + Gamzee&Karkat story, morning after:
John has always been proud of his ability to sleep through just about any noise there exists, but scent is another thing entirely. )

+++++++

And a Battlefield Terra thing, Karkat one month before BT.
They didn't tell anyone during training that a frontier warship's living quarters were a permanent orgiastic free for all. )
