A Dark Carnival- Part 1.1A HomeStuck AU Fan Fiction:
Dark Carnival: Part 1.1: In the midst of madness, there might be hope.
It seems like it's been forever since this nightmare began. Karkat sighed as he dipped his hands into the cold water he had drawn earlier.
His hands were burnt from a recent stunt he pulled on the High Wire.
Fuck, fuck, fuck...Karkat moaned as he wrapped his hands in bandage.
I should be used to this Gog awe full pain by now, fuck, fuck...
"Hey Karkat, Gamzee wants to see you." Terezi said as she poked her head into Karkat's trailer.
"Right, I'll be there in a minute." Karkat responded as he Terezi shut the door.
Everyday it's like thi
A Dark Carnival- 2Dark Carnival: Part 2: Make them suffer, make them cry
"What am I going to do?" Tavros cried as he took up his lance.
Tinkerbull nudged him in hopes of making him feel better.
"Uh, yeah I know, no sense in bothering myself with an issue when I'm practicing." Tavros said to his lusus as he patted it on the head.
Tavros had been training very hard everyday to become like his ancestor, that is however, after Equius gave him a new set of legs.
Tavros took a deep breath and stared right at his target he had set up outside his hive.
"You can do this, be confident, believe in yourself." Tavros mumbled to himself.
"1..2..3.!" Tavros said as
A Dark Carnival: 14.2 Dark Carnival: 14.2: Quality time with your lusus is a good thing.
As soon as Gamzee left to go talk to Karkat, Tavros started to get a sinking feeling in his gut.
The very thought of leaving Gamzee for so long pained him.
It had been half a sweep since they really had any contact like this and the idea of going away for longer than that really flustered him.
"I'm not sure if I can do this anymore." Tavros whispered faintly.
Tinkerbull flew over to him and nudged his cheek.
"I want to spend everyday with him. I want to make him happy. I want to have this 'family' with him. I-I..." Tavros muttered as he began to break down into a crying
A Dark Carnival: 12.2Dark Carnival: Part 12.2: Nighttime Blues (and lusi drama)
The sun had long since gone down and the street lights were speckled across the darkness of the night.
Gamzee had been holding onto Tavros' hand the entire walk to his hive. Tavros had been trying to tell Gamzee about his plans on what he'll do once he leaves, but Gamzee would redirect the conversation to something like grub names or Karkat's little fits.
Tavros assumed that Gamzee didn't want to think about him leaving, and to be honest Tavros really really didn't want to think about it either, but it couldn't be avoided.
"Hey Tav bro, isn't that your mother fucking hive?" Gamzee
A Dark Carnival- 3.2Dark Carnival: Part 3.2: Painful thoughts
"Oh dear, what am I supposed to tell him? If he finds out Tavros got hurt, he'll most likely strangle me. Oh but I can't lie to him!" Equius muttered to himself.
After he left Tavros' hive to tell Gamzee about what, it suddenly became apparent of the consequences of doing so.
"I got it, I'll tell him that his legs fell off while he was practicing because they got too small on him and that I need to make a new pair for him, it isn't exactly a lie since that low bloods legs did fall off, in so many directions.." Equius mumbled as he stomped into the carnival grounds.
"Hey Equius!" A perky Nepeta yel
A Dark Carnival- 6Dark Carnival: Part 6: Broken Glass Love
"What am I mother fucking doing?" Gamzee muttered to himself.
He was distressed, more so then usual. Ever since Equius and Nepeta came back with Tavros he'd been feeling quit conflicted.
Should I just take this opportunity to make him mine or just leave him be?
Keep him here or let him go?
Questions like those have been eating away at him, it was driving all the sanity he had left out the window.
"Excuse me, highblood, may I come in?" Equius said as he knocked on the door.
Gamzee shuffled over to the door and opened it, trying to seem casual, well casual for him.
"Yes, mother fucker?" He mumb
A Dark Carnival- 3.1Dark Carnival: Part 3.1: Waiting for an unknown fate
"Why do I have to be so Gog damn weak?" Tavros moaned as he took a deep and long breath.
Tavros was sprawled out on the floor of his room. For a while now he just stayed in his hive, too tired to do anything, too weak to even really move.
He lost so much blood after those trolls ripped his legs off that the only thing he can do now is rest.
"I must be the weakest troll on all of Alternia." He sighed as he rolled over onto his side.
"So weak and pathetic. On top of that I'm also a coward." He continued.
Tinkerbull sat down next to Tavros, watching his every slight movement, making sure
A Dark Carnival: 13Dark Carnival: Part 13: Things just got awkward again, I mean really awkward.
"Gamzee, no, uh Gamzee please stop." Tavros begged as Gamzee continued to rummage through his lowblooded lover's closet.
Shortly after waking up, Gamzee took the initiative to inspect Tavros' hive from top to bottom to learn things about him that he didn't already know.
However, about thirty minutes into, Tavros found Gamzee going through his closet.
"Ah come on mother fucker, you ain't hiding anything bad in here are ya?" Gamzee said as he gave Tavros a naughty smile.
Tav shook his head violently and
A Dark Carnival: 16.1Dark Carnival: 16.1: The end is near, and so is the beginning
It had been an odd few days since Tavros and Gamzee got back to the carnival. Gamzee spent a lot of time talking things over with Karkat and the others.
Tavros on the other hand spent his time practicing behind the workshop.
The two hardly saw much of each other except for during the morning or late at night.
They didn't even have a lot to say to one another, so it kinda made matters worse.
Tavros would always try and have a conversation with Gamzee, but one of his friends would show up a few minutes later with some sort of complaint.
"Maybe this is some kind of sign." Tavr
A Dark Carnival-7Dark Carnival: Part 7: A love that will have to wait.
"Tavros, hey Tavros." Someone whispered softly to the sleeping troll.
Tavros tossed over onto his side trying to ignore who ever was trying to wake him up.
"Come on man, wake the mother fucking up." Gamzee said as he lightly shook Tavros awake.
"Huh, what?" Tavros mumbled as he slowly opened his eyes.
He turned his head and saw Gamzee looking at him.
Shit! Tavros thought, so that wasn't a dream after all? Oh shit, shit shit shit!
"I gotta go and mother fucking work this circus man, you just hang here and I'll come and see you later." Gamzee said as he gently patted Tavros on the hea
A Dark Carnival- 10Dark Carnival: Part 10: Love is painful when you're not ready for it
Tavros woke up with a sopor high hang over. Every move he made was slow and everything he saw was blurred.
"Where-where am I?" Tavros slurred as he managed to sit up.
He shook his head a couple times and slapped his face in attempt to get some feel to his dizzy think pan.
"Finally awake Tav bro?" Gamzee says as he looks up at Tavros.
Tavros nods his head and rubs some sleep out of his eyes.
"Wha-what happened last night?" Tavros asked.
"You got a little mother fucking sopor on and talked in your sleep." Gamzee replied.
"Oh really?" Tavros said as he fell back down on
A Dark Carnival- 9Dark Carnival: Part 9: Dreams for the Dizzy
Tavros was having a tough time sleeping again. He had a horrible nightmare again, this time about the incident in which he lost his legs.
It kept him awake and well bored.
Tavros carefully slipped out of Gamzee's arms and to the side of the bed.
He wiggled his toes and did other leg exercises to keep him occupied, but soon he found himself bored again.
He turned his head and looked over at the sleeping Gamzee.
Tavros examined the highblood as much as he could. He was covered in bandages and had a scar his left shoulder, his scars on his face seemed to be agitated and quick to bleed as small
A Dark Carnival- 1.2Dark Carnival: Part 1.2: Enter the Madness
The shows gonna start soon, Tavros sighed as he rubbed the back of his neck.
Another day of seeing my friends in pain. Friends, do I really have a right to call them that? They helped me, hurt me, liked me, and hated me, so what else can I call them?
"Going in again?" Terezi asked as she stopped Tavros.
"Uh yeah." Tavros said as he looked at her troubled.
"Be careful, and also-" Terezi stopped herself.
" 'Also'?" Tavros asked repeating Terezi's last word.
"No, it's nothing, just please consider his offer, I beg you." She said as she adjusted her glasses and lifted her cane.
Tavros nodded his
A Dark Carnival: 14.1Dark Carnival: Part 14.1: As long as you're happy
Arriving back at the carnival, Gamzee and Tavros were greeted sourly by Karkat.
"Where the fuck have you two been?" Karkat yelled as he stomped towards the two trolls.
"At Tav bro's hive. Why is something mother fucking bothering you best friend?" Gamzee said as he tilted his head defensively.
"Yes, I mean no. Fuck, Gamzee we need to talk. This whole carnival thing is getting out of hand and we're all sick of it. Can you fucking drop it and let us fucking go!" Karkat yelled.
Tavros felt a bit uncomfortable being stuck in the middle of something he knew hardly anything about.
