Promstuck - Act One - Chapter TwoYou had quickly said a quick, and awkward, goodbye to Karkat and Sollux and left to find your buddy Vriska, because you really didn’t feel comfortable around them when they were hiding things from you. Yeah, they can seem creepy at times. What shouldn’t they tell you? You don’t get it at all. You sigh lightly as you walk over to a girl with long blonde hair, and you’re pretty sure that’s a blue dress, too. Bingo.“Hey, Vriska. What’s up?” You smile as she notices you.“John! It’s so nice to see you here even after your ranting about how shitty prom is. Also, I was just talking to Tavros right now. He’s been hiding from me all evening, ugh, what a party pooper!”“Tavros? Isn’t that the guy Gamzee was into?”“Haha, yeah. Like, Gamzee is so horrible at confessing I swear nothing is going to happen.” Vriska chuckled to herself, and then lightly punched your arm.“Hey, John, how
Promstuck - Act One - Chapter OneHoooonk!This was it, it was time to go.Your name is John Egbert, and tonight, is the night you’ve scorned for years, the night you’ve tried to avoid – Prom night.But, being the most popular boy in school, it was obvious your attempts to steer clear from such an event would be futile. At least you could try, though. You quickly gathered your phone and attempted to fix a loose strand of hair, which happens to be all of your hair. You fail horribly; no taming that fucking wild beast on your head.You quickly sprint down your steps, you almost forgot about the honking vehicle outside, ready to pick you up for your dramatic entrance. As you reach the front door, you signal a pleasant wave to your father who had been watching TV, and with no hesitation he waved back with a smile. What a great dad.You make your way outside and down to the car, which currently, has all of your best friends seated in it: Jade, Rose, and the ‘oh so amazing driver’, Dave. So he s
Loose Strings Are Meant To Be Pulled CHAP1“Dave, wake up.” A stern voice called like an echo as his mind ventured further into the blurry depths of his own imagination.“Dave Elizabeth Strider, I will not repeat myself.” Suddenly, he jolted awake from his fantasies and glared at the figure his eyes could not picture without blur.“We’re here, Dave.” His brother, Dirk, gave him a slight pap on the back of his head to make sure he was awake, and the only response was a groan.“It looks like somebody left this place in hell’s armpit for more than a century. Why did we buy this house again?” Dave quickly stated, with sarcasm flying through his words.“Dave, it was the only place that was affordable.” Dirk sighed heavily going on about how many times he’s told him that, and why he should listen more. But, surprise surprise, Dave wasn’t listening.The brothers took a look inside the house, with its large rooms and what caught them most was the room w
A Friend Withers AwayWalking among the gloomy hallways, only a small pathway could be seen with the assistance of a flashlight. The maroon haired boy carefully walked over the scraps through the hall, with his ghost companion. His cobalt eyes cautiously flickered among the room, looking for any sense of danger.“..Are you sure this is the place..?” The boy asked, in a hesitant manner, as he tried not to trip over the piles of rubble.“Of course! What do you think I am, an idiot?” The ghost replied, higher pitched, as she swam through the air with the boy.Eventually, the boy reached to the end of the room, to find a single, rusted door. He managed to push it open with his strength, and the room was pitch black compared to the rooms he ventured in before.“Woah! It’s really dark in here...” He stated, whilst rubbing his eyes. Once opening them, he was jolted back to reality when he saw...Crow.He looked so... helpless, just sitting in a room filled with mannequins.
