imagine your otp meeting each other for the first time, at night, in the woods, while both trying to dispose of their freshly killed corpses
Your name is Karkat Vantas and this is the worst night of your life. You stumble through the underbrush, unbalanced with the weight on your shoulders. You haven’t made near as good time as you wanted, but the goddamn cerulean you’re carrying feels like he was made of lead bricks. You can’t imagine how dense seadwellers must be.
You heave the body off your back and onto the forest floor. It sprawls, limbs every which way, and it would almost be funny if it weren’t, you know, a culling offense you’re trying to hide. You should probably cut up the body so the daytime scavengers will scent it more quickly. You get as far as equipping your sickle, then just stand there feeling queasy.
What the fuck, there’s a light moving through the trees, a halo of red and blue. You freeze. If you run you’ll make noise, and whoever it is—some psionic asshole—will find you for sure. But as you stand there, frozen, trying to come up with a functional escape plan, the psionic is coming closer. You’re going to die.
The light drifts into your clearing and you can actually see the psionic, this skinny jerkwad of a troll floating along instead of walking. Behind him—
Floating behind him there’s a body, and he drops it with a startled “Shit!” when you meet his eyes. Suddenly things look a lot better for your continued survival.
"Highblood?" you ask in what you hope is a sympathetic tone. You toe yours in case he hasn’t noticed it yet.
He nods. “You know how it is.” His voice is thin and nasal, lispy. Familiar. You’ve heard that voice, over Trollian, when you couldn’t type fast enough and switched to voice chat to argue with this arrogant chutenugget about your ~ath skills.
"twinArmageddons, holy shit."
His eyes glow brighter when he’s surprised. “carcinoGeneticist?”
Serendipity this good doesn’t even happen in the movies. Your squakblister proceeds without checking in with your thinkpan first. “I have never wanted to punch anyone in the snout more than I do right now.”
"If you can reach me, sure." Even his dentition is detestable, snaggle-fanged and ridiculous. "Free hit."
Your name is Karkat Vantas and this is the best night of your life.
