Prospit Sandwiches with Alternian Fillings

CG: ANYWAY, I WOULDN'T SAY THAT HAVING THE TWO OF YOU FINALLY HERE IS PARTICULARLY WONDERFUL; NO DOUBT YOU WILL PROVE TO BE JUST AS MUCH OF A PAIR OF ASSHOLE AS THE REST OF THIS ASSHOLE PARTY. AT LEAST YOU'LL FIT IN FINE.
GG: wow thanks, i feel so welcomed. I missed you too, karkat! >:B
CG: SHUT YOUR TRAP, I WASN'T DONE.
CG: ... BUT IT IS CERTAINLY A RELIEF. NOW MAYBE STRIDER AND LALONDE CAN STOP WRINGING THEIR GRASPING FRONDS INTO PAINFUL AND IMPROBABLE SHAPES AND FRETTING THEMSELVES BALD.
CG: ALSO A CHANGE OF PACE. I SUPPOSE. UNTIL EGBERT'S PRANKS GET OLD, SO APPROXIMATELY TWO DAYS IN.
GG: pff!! X3
CG: ENLIGHTEN ME, JADE HUMAN, WHAT EXACTLY DID I SAY THAT SEEMED HUMOROUS TO YOU? BECAUSE I CAN GUARANTEE, NO MATTER WHAT IT WAS, IT WASN'T INTENDED THAT WAY.
GG: nothing!!! im sure dave and rose were the only ones who were worried for us :B
CG: WELL, OF COURSE THEY WERE, TEREZI'S PET HUMAN IS RIGHT HERE.
CG: KANAYA MIGHT HAVE WONDERED A BIT ABOUT HOW YOU GUYS WERE DOING, BUT IT WASN'T LIKE ROSE COULD TELL HER WHAT SHE DIDN'T KNOW. AND GAMZEE DOESN'T GIVE THE TINIEST CRAPLET ABOUT A GREAT MANY THINGS, YOU WILL FEEL SAD TO HEAR YOU ARE ALAS INCLUDED.
GG: crushed! :( :( :'(
CG: HARLEY USES SARCASM. IT'S NOT VERY EFFECTIVE.
GG: >:?
CG: ... HOW CAN YOU NOT RECOGNIZE MOMENTOUS QUOTES FROM YOUR OWN CULTURE, HARLEY, HERE I WAS MAKING AN EFFORT TO INTERACT AT YOUR FEEBLE LEVEL.
GG: oh shut up!!
GG: i messaged you ten whole minutes ago and all youve talked about was how much you really really really didnt worry honest for real you swear, and its kind of cute and all but we could totally switch to another topic now.
CG: YEAH, SORRY, I
CG: WHAT.
GG: so tell me about how your quadrants are going!! anyone up in your heart grill??
CG: ARE YOU IMPLYING I AM ENGAGING IN DENIA
CG: 1) WILL YOU LET ME FINISH A SENTENCE ALREADY. RUDE. 2) NO, HONESTLY, HARLEY, *WHAT*.
GG: what?? I cant be wondering if one of my friends has found happiness and sexy sloppy makeouts?
CG: ... I GUESS YOU CAN. IT'S JUST WEIRD, NO ONE EVER WANTS TO DISCUSS ROMANCE WITH ME.
CG: EXCEPT GAMZEE, BUT HE HASN'T GOT A CHOICE, IT'S IN THE MOIRAIL CONTRACT THAT I MADE HIM SIGN IN BLOOD WHILE HE WAS STILL SOPOR-DAZED.
CG: HE NEVER OFFERS MUCH INSIGHT BUT "DO WHAT YOUR BLOODPUSHED TELL YOU, BRO" EITHER.
GG: aw so cute. stop dodging the question!!!
CG: I'LL REMIND YOU THAT MOIRALLEGIANCE IS JUST AS VALID A FORM OF ROMANCE AS THE CONCUPISCENT QUADRANTS. HOW COME YOU HUMANS CAN NEVER GET THAT TO STICK IN YOUR THINKPANS?
GG: still not an answer, mister so smart i cant answer a simple yes or no question!!!!

-- carcinoGeneticist [CG] began trolling ectoBiologist [EB] --

CG: EGBERT, ENLIGHTEN ME.
EB: hey karkat! what a pleasant surprise. long time no see. how's the wife and kids?
CG: ... I SAW YOU IN THE LAB A HOUR AGO. THAT REPUGNANT GROUP "HUG" YOU SUBJECTED ME TO?
CG: MY MAIN ENDOSKELETON SUPPORT COLUMN IS CRACKED IN APPROXIMATELY THREE PLACES NOW. TWO OF WHICH ARE JOHN-HAND-SHAPED.
EB: pfff. :B
CG: THE THIRD HANDPRINT BEING SQUARE ON MY ASS. I PRAY IT WAS ANYONE BUT STRIDER, OR I MIGHT HAVE TO CLEANSE MYSELF WITH FIRE.
CG: BUT ANYWAY SHUT UP.
EB: what! someone groped you??
CG: YOUR READING COMPREHENSION IS -- NO, YOU KNOW WHAT, I DID HAVE SOMETHING TO ASK.
CG: IS THERE ANY REASON WHY YOUR "ECTO-SIBLING" IS ADAMANT ABOUT LEARNING WHETHER I HAVE A MATESPRIT?
EB: ... i'll get right back to you on that.

----
--ectoBiologist [EB] began pestering gardenGnostic [GG]--

EB: WHEN I SAID OKAY FINE JADE LET'S TRY TO **DISCREETLY** PUT OUT FEELERS I DIDN'T MEAN GO RIGHT UP TO HIM AND ASK HIM POINT BLANK IF HE'D LIKE TO STAR IN HIS OWN KINKTASTIC ALIEN PORNO!!!!!!!!
GG: >:/ oh yes because "btw do you have a gf" totally means "hey do you wanna be the yummy filling in a twin sandwich" in normal people land. dont be a buttface, john!! >:X
EB: ... okay fine sorry but he's already all suspicious, lay off a bit okay.
EB: by the way someone groped karkat during our awesome welcome home hug! it figures someone else would make a move just as we come back. crap.
GG: ... um.
EB: goddamn it. i was SO good at keeping it brofriendly too and meanwhile he's being nabbed right under our nose. and it's not like he's not all "romance works THIS way" already so that's already a strike against us and in favor of that butt-grabbing sneak pervert. i'm really bummed now.
GG: :D;;
EB: ...
GG: >;3
GG: > ;3
GG: >;333~
EB: I am beating my head against my desk now. i'll have a bruise and i'll blame you for it. blaaame.
EB: ... how nice was it?
GG: >:3 aw, its mean to give people spoilers.
EB: jaaaaaaaade! :(

----
CG: ALRIGHT, NOT THAT I AM NOT FLATTERED BY THIS SUDDEN INTEREST IN THE GLORIOUS CLUSTERFUCK THAT IS MY LOVE LIFE, BUT WE BOTH KNOW THERE ARE VERY FEW REASONS FOR THIS LINE OF QUESTIONING.
GG: >:( yeah, like me caring about the answer?
CG: JADE. PLEASE. DESPITE ALL EVIDENCE TO THE CONTRARY I AM IN FACT NOT STUPID.
CG: EITHER YOU ARE FISHING ON YOUR OWN BEHALF, OR ON SOMEONE ELSE'S.
CG: YOU HAVE BEEN IN COMMUNICATION RANGE WITH THE METEOR EXACTLY TWO HOURS AND A HALF. I WOULD BE SURPRISED IF YOU HAD TIME FOR A FEELINGS JAM, BESIDES WHICH STRIDER AND LALONDE ARE BOTH HAPPILY FLUSH-QUADRANTED.
CG: SO THE CHOICES ARE: 1) YOU'RE INTERESTED. HA HA HA. WE WENT DOWN THAT ROAD BEFORE, YOU RIGHTFULLY SLAMMED THE METAPHORICAL DOOR IN MY TOO-DESPERATE FACE; BEING AN OPTIMIST DEEP DOWN I REFUSE TO BELIEVE HUMANS LOSE SO MANY BRAINCELLS BETWEEN THEIR SIXTH AND SEVENTH SWEEPS. 2) ORANGE FEATHERBEAST DAVE IS INTERESTED. SOME MORE HA HA HAS ENSUE, FOLLOWED BY A SCREECH OF PRIMAL TERROR AND REPULSED RETCHING. 3) JOHN IS INTERESTED.

----
GG: oh crap.
EB: what? what???

----
CG: SHAME ON YOU, EGBERT. I HAVE NO IDEA HOW YOU ROPED HER INTO ARRANGING ME A BLIND DATE WITH A SALAMANDER OR WHATEVER OTHER CREATURE YOU CAN CONVINCE TO SIT HERE AND BLOW SPITTLE AT ME, BUT IT WAS THE MOST OBVIOUS PRANK I HAVE EVER SEEN COMING FROM TWO MILES AWAY.
CG: HILARIOUS THOUGH. MY SIDES ARE SPLITTING FROM THE SURFEIT OF MIRTH. ORGANS EVERYWHERE. WHO WILL CLEAN UP THE MESS?
EB: uh.
EB: haha you got me. It was worth a try? :B

----
CG: LET'S JUST... NOT GO ANY FARTHER DOWN THAT ROAD, JADE.
CG: I'VE SEEN WHERE IT LEADS AND MOSTLY IT'S A LOT OF MERRY CLIFFS AND JOLLY ROARBEAST TRAPS BEFORE THE INEVITABLE DEAD END.
CG: STOP TRYING TO BE SNEAKY ON HIS BEHALF AND LET JOHN DO HIS OWN LEGWORK.
GG: you talk as if hes the only one who wants that!!!
CG: ...
CG: ... ... ... ?
CG: I KEEP STARING AT THOSE RADIOACTIVE SUN-GREEN WORDS AND WAITING FOR THEM TO MAKE SENSE AND ALL I'M GETTING ARE BURNT RETINAS AND POSSIBLY CANCER.

----
CG: JOHN, YOU EXPLAIN THIS TO ME: GG: you talk as if hes the only one who wants that!!!

----
EB: AUGH JADE, I TOLD HIM YOU WERE IN ON A PRANK STOP UNDOING MY DAMAGE CONTROL!!!
GG: I THOUGHT YOUD GROWN A BACKBONE AND TOLD HIM YOURSELF!!! SERIOUSLY I HAVE TO DO EVERYTHING HERE!!!!

EB: oh shit oh shit oh shit

EB: oh well. it was nice knowing you, jade. you're the best sortofsister i've ever had.
GG: im the only one youve ever had, buttface. :B <3
EB: details, details. <3
GG: maybe we should stop staring at the invite and get on that board, huh? hes not going to get more pleasant by waiting. soooo........ check your pockets for that spare spine and lets go?
EB: bluh bluh.
EB: Oh whatever, you're right, if we're going to die, may as well die bravely.
EB: GERONIMO!

CCG: COME TO THINK OF IT, HARLEY, I'M STARTING TO GET A WHIFF OF SOMETHING UNEXPECTED YET VERY UNPLEASANT, SUCH AS A DEAD SQUEAKBEAST YOUR LUSUS HAS FORGOTTEN UNDER THE FLOORBOARDS FOR THE LAST PERIGEE. OR SUCH AS YOU BEING AN EQUAL PARTICIPANT IN THIS
CCG: ... THIS... THIS. WHATEVER IT IS.

-- CURRENT ectoBiologist [CEB] RIGHT NOW responded to memo --
-- CURRENT gardenGnostic [CGG] RIGHT NOW responded to memo --

CCG: NICE TO SEE YOU HAVE MASTERED THE COMPLEX ART OF POINT AND CLICK.
CCG: EGBERT HUMAN. YOUR "PRANKSTER GAMBIT" IS ALREADY IN THE NEGATIVE FOR THIS. EXPLAIN YOUR BULLSHIT. I GUARANTEE IT CAN NOT MAKE THINGS WORSE.
CEB: how much are you betting? :B
CGG: favors? say youre betting favors. :333
CCG: THE JOKE CEASED BEING FUNNY ABOUT FIVE MINUTES AGO. STOP BEATING IT INTO PASTE AND LET THE SCAVENGERS HAVE THEIR LONG-AWAITED DINNER.
CCG: TO BE HONEST, I
CCG: IT ISN'T THE BEST FEELING IN THE WORLD.
CEB: uh. karkat? what are you talking about?
CCG: I KNOW PRANKING IS YOUR THING AND I SWEAR TOMORROW I'LL STOP TAKING IT PERSONALLY.
CCG: OR TAKING JADE JOINING IN SO MERRILY PERSONALLY EITHER. BECAUSE IT ISN'T. YOU'RE ... SORT OF GENETIC MOIRAILS SO OF COURSE IT'D BE LIKE THAT AND IT'S FINE.
CEB: neither of us was trying to make you feel bad! :( this is really not a thing we were doing.
CCG: BUT. NOT TONIGHT, OKAY? NOT WHEN YOU'RE LITERALLY STRAIGHT OFF THE BOAT, AND THE FIRST ITEM ON THE AGENDA IS APPARENTLY TO PRANK KARKAT ABOUT HIS NONEXISTENT LOVE LIFE.
CGG: are you done whining yet? :/
CGG: good! shoosh and listen.
CCG: HARLEY. I AM NOT WHINING. I AM LEGITIMATELY HURT. SURPRISE, FEELINGS ARE A THING I ACTUALLY HAVE. THEY ARE, TO THE ASTONISHMENT OF ALL, NOT ARMORED.
CEB: she wasn't trying to be mean!
CEB: aw crap, i'm sorry, karkat, this isn't what we were trying to do at ALL. shit.
CGG: :( okay, im sorry too, but it hurts a bit that you immediately thought we were trying to prank you.
CCG: MAYBE BECAUSE EGBERT TOLD ME HE WAS.
CGG: because hes a stupid dumb stupidhead and hes scared of stupid things!!
CEB: jade.
CGG: like asking people out, like being told no thanks is worse than *pining*!!!! were not in a romance novel and pining is stupid and were gonna figure this crap out right away.

-- CURRENT carcinoGeneticist [CCG] has left the memo! --

CGG: ... oh noooooo.
CEB: well.
CEB: i guess that was worth the attempt.
CGG: i cant believe youre speaking like that, mister john egbert, heir of breath, badassest fridge-lifter who ever armwrestled a dave.

-- CURRENT carcinoGeneticist [CCG] RIGHT NOW responded to memo! --

CEB: no, you know what, you're right! i'm not giving up here. we are going to woo the *hell* out of that surly bastard.
CEB: ... oh. hey. karkat. uh.
CGG: karkat?

-- CURRENT carcinoGeneticist [CCG] is idle! --

CGG: karkat???!!
CGG: if you dont answer in another ten seconds im gonna pop over to your room and check that you didnt knock yourself out on something. youre worrying me a bit.
CCG: NO I'M FINE!
CCG: STAY WHERE YOU ARE.
CCG: OKAY, I WAS NOT EXPECTING A FLUSHED CONFESSION TODAY.
CCG: OF ALL THE THINGS I EXPECTED THIS DID NOT EVEN MAKE THE "HAHAHA THIS WOULD BE SO OUTRAGEOUSLY RANDOM" LIST.
CCG: ...
CCG: JOHN?
CEB: uh. yeah.
CEB: this is probably the least romantic confession ever. Sorry? :B
CCG: I DON'T KNOW, YOU HAVEN'T ACTUALLY CONFESSED YET. WITH ACTUAL, NOT MISLEADING AND/OR CONFUSING WORDS. YOU MIGHT YET SURPRISE ME AND MANAGE TO BE ELOQUENT.
CCG: FAILING THAT, CONCISE AND CLEAR WOULD SUFFICE.
CEB: i like you in the way that means i want to kiss you on the mouth.
CCG: oh.
CEB: gently! without teeth! well maybe a little teeth if you're into that but, okay i don't know if pity and like are anything close but this is *definitely* not hate.
CCG: ... OH. AND THIS IS WHY JADE WAS SOUNDING ME OUT FOR YOU EARLIER. IN CASE I WAS ALREADY TAKEN?
CGG: yes, exactly. :)
CCG: WELL.
CCG: IT JUST SO HAPPENS I'M NOT.
CCG: THIS DOESN'T MEAN AN AUTOMATIC YES! BUT I GUESS I AM. WILLING TO BE CONVINCED. I SUPPOSE. IF YOU INSIST.
CEB: jade, you are not doing this to me.
CCG: ... OKAY, WHAT IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN ME ANSWERING YOUR SWOON-INDUCING MASTERPIECE OF REVEALED YEARNING.
CGG: john, dont bother, its fine!!
CEB: hell yes i'll bother. karkat? actually, jade likes you too.
CCG: ... I.
CCG: THERE IS SUCH A THING AS SUSPENSION OF DISBELIEF.
CCG: MINE JUST CRASHED DOWN INTO THE ABYSS, NEVER TO LAND, ONLY TO BE TORN ALIVE, SHRED AFTER MANGLED SHRED RENT FROM ITS CARCASS BY THE JAGGED, MERCILESS EDGES OF ITS ENDLESS CLIFFS.
CEB: she likes you in a wants to kiss your stupid little horns and feel up your butt during wholesome brohugs way. she likes you like she wants to know if you'd blush if she kissed your nose in public. she likes you like she wants to find out if you have a bellybutton. she likes you like she wants to watch your stupid movies and cuddle up on the couch and even pretend to like them because then maybe you'd smile.
CGG: joooooooohn. DX
CEB: say any of that is wrong. I double-dog dare you.
CGG: ... whine.
CGG: alright fine!! its totally a hundred percent accurate.
CGG: im going to be really nice and not list your own, buttface.
CEB: :B <>
CEB: karkat?
CCG: STILL HERE.
CCG: NO SEARCH PARTY. I JUST.
CCG: IS THIS A "YOU HAVE TO CHOOSE" SCENARIO
CCG: IS THAT WHAT THIS IS
CCG: BECAUSE I CAN'T, YOU CAN'T SPRING IT ON ME LIKE THAT, I
CCG: DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW MANY MOVIES START WITH "IN WHICH TWO MOIRAILS FIND THEMSELVES WAXING FLUSHED FOR THE SAME TROLL ETC"? A TRULY ASTOUNDING NUMBER, IS HOW MUCH.
CCG: THEY ALL GO THE SAME WAY AFTER THIS. AWKWARDNESS AND GUILT AND BROKEN MOIRALLEGIANCES, I CAN'T
CCG: SHIT, LOOK AT ME, CAN'T EVEN FINISH A SIMPLE FUCKING SENTENCE, MY THINKSPONGE IS NOW A COLANDER.
CCG: GOOD JOB, DERP TWINS.
CEB: no, actually.
CEB: this is the catch that i bet you totally saw coming! since you *always* think there's a catch coming, and bam! this time you were right.
CEB: only there's a twist, because otherwise the plot is boring, right?
CEB: we're a package deal.
CEB: buy one get one free. hehehe.
CGG: so see, the trap is already avoided! our twinhood is safe.

-- CURRENT carcinoGeneticist [CCG] is idle! --

CEB: welp, there he goes again :(
CGG: :(((
CGG: its not a joke, i swear. we both like you and
CGG: okay its been a while! so maybe we wont like you that way anymore because we all grew up in different direction...
CGG: but wed really like to try it, if youd let us. weve been thinking about whether we could share and not get jealous and well, maybe were wrong but we dont think we are.
CGG: we talked about it a *lot*.
CEB: karkat?
CEB: are you still here?
CCG: y
CGG: ... um. did we break your brain?
CCG: y obvs.
CEB: pff hehehe <3
CCG: <3<
CCG: ... not really. just. bantering along. a bit.
CEB: yeah, i gathered. :B <3
CCG: buttwipe.
CGG: X'D <3<3
CEB: ZING! ouch.
CGG: but youre still not capslocking. are you sure youre okay? we could come and check on you? :?
CCG: >_>
CCG: LOOK WHAT YOU'VE DONE, HARLEY. MADE ME USE A SMILEY. FOR SHAME.
CGG: :DDDD!
CCG: I'LL LIVE SOMEHOW. PLEASE DO NOT INVADE MY RESPITEBLOCK. THE ENSUING PANIC ATTACK WOULD NOT BE PRETTY, ALSO GAMZEE WOULD CLUB YOU LIKE BABY BLUBBERBEASTS AND USE YOUR BODILY FLUIDS FOR A NEW MURAL.
CCG: THINKSPONGE MATTER IS A RIGHT BITCH TO SCRUB OUT OF THOSE LITTLE GAPS BETWEEN THE WALL PANELS.
CEB: okay, okay, no invading your space, promise. we'll be nice and proper and wait for you to invite us.
CGG: well be super proper! the properest!!!!
CGG: I dont think john and i can use each other as chaperone though. :X
CEB: :B ohoho. that's a thought! i promise i'd keep a real close eye on whatever you young whippersnappers got up to.
CGG: oh hey :DDDDDDDDDDD
CCG: EGBERT HUMAN. HARLEY HUMAN. *NO*.
CGG: uh oh. XD <3<3
CEB: oh gog, this reminds me of my dad's "you're in TROUBLE, young man!" voice. UNSEXY!
CGG: hey karkat, do you have a webcam?? I mean I know you can see us with trollians viewport thingy but can we see you as well?
CCG: OH GOG, I'D FORGOTTEN ABOUT THAT PARTICULAR FEATURE. ALSO, NO, YOU CANNOT.
CGG: aw, why?
CCG: BECAUSE I FORBID IT. OBEY YOUR GOD, CREATOR OF ALL THINGS.
CGG: aw, but i really want to see what you look like when youre blushing! I bet youre so cute. SO cute. the cutest.
CEB: adorrible. cuterrifying. charmidevastating.
CCG: I WILL CULL YOU BOTH. AND THEN MYSELF, FOR THE HEINOUS CRIME OF HAVING BEEN WITNESS TO THIS EGREGIOUS FUCKERY.
CCG: I
CCG: DON'T SUPPOSE EITHER OF YOU FEELS LIKE BEING DECENT AND NON-PERVERTED AND FLIP BLACK FOR ME? A PAIR OF MOIRAILS FOR CONCUPISCENT PARTNERS IS A BIT AWKWARD TO JUGGLE BUT WITH THE PROPER BOUNDARIES I HAVE IT ON GOOD AUTHORITY THAT IT'S DOABLE. HARLEY, YOU WOULD MAKE QUITE A DECENT KISMESIS.
CEB: hey! i'd make an awesome kismething too. my blackflirty advances would be terrible and fearsome!
CCG: NO YOU WOULDN'T. AND IF I EVER GET ANOTHER BUCKET ON THE HEAD FROM YOU I AM SHOVING IT UP YOUR NOOK. BELIEVE ME IT WILL FIT, IF ONLY THROUGH THE SHEER POWER OF MY RAGE, AKIN TO A BLACK HOLE OR THREE.
CGG: pfffffff >:333~ this is not as wordy as your usual threats, karkat! i wonder why not, i mean it cant be because now youre thinking about ... ..... johns potential nook?????!!
CCG: %OHII((N$B AKZHBy
CGG: (though i still dont really know for sure what a nook is. is it like a vagina? cause i have one of those but john doesnt. just for your information. youll have to improvise! :X)
CCG: __NJ_(HYVBYYYYYYYY
CCG: FUCK YOU, HARLEY.
CCG: FUCK YOU PLATONICALLY.
CEB: aw, mean, jade! i bet now he's really thinking about it. ;B

-- CURRENT carcinoGeneticist [CCG] is idle! --

CEB: um. are you *thinking about it* hint hint nudge nudge or have we broken you again?
CGG: its just that youre super cute when youre all flustered. sorry? :((
CEB: karkat?
CEB: karkat, i'm gonna ask you to do something really hard now.
CEB: lift your hands and put them on the keyboard.
CEB: are you doing that? great! now press a key.
CCG: ffffffffffffff
CEB: good! very good. now another key?
CCG: yyyyyyyy
CEB: fy! for your... information?
CCG: fuck... you... asshole.
CGG: XD XD X'DDDDDDDDD <3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3
CCG: THE HORRORTERRORS BE MY WITNESSES, I COULD REALLY LEARN TO HATE YOU BOTH.
CGG: ooo mr vantas ;3333~
CGG: but okay well tone it down. we definitely dont hate you, sexily or not!!
CCG: YEAH, I HAD MANAGED TO GATHER THAT IMPRESSION THE FIRST TEN TIMES YOU SAID IT.
CGG: come to think of it i didnt really properly say it either, did i? :)
CGG: mr karkat vantas, i like you and would very much enjoy taking you on a date some day soon. we have to figure out exactly how much!! For *science*.
CCG: OH WELL! IF IT'S FOR SCIENCE.
CGG: is that a yes?? :DDD
CCG: NO.
CGG: :'(
CEB: welp, you kinda left yourself wide open for that one there. :B
CGG: your mom is wide open!!!
CEB: :'(((((((( how could you, i never had a mom!
CCG: EGBERT, STOP EIGHT-QUIRKING, THAT SHIT IS DISTURBING ME AT A PROFOUND LEVEL. EGBERT AND HARLEY, STOP HUMANNING, THAT SHIT IS JUST PLAIN EMBARRASSING AT ANY LEVEL THERE EXISTS AND SOME THAT WERE DUG OUT JUST FOR THE OCCASION. ESPECIALLY STOP HUMANNING
. CCG: I
CCG: I STILL DON'T HAVE THE FAINTEST IDEA WHAT TO SAY TO EITHER OF YOU.
CCG: THE BOTH OF YOU. DO YOU TWO HAVE ANY IDEA HOW PERVERTED
CCG: NO, YOU PROBABLY DO. NEVER MIND.
CCG: I CAN RESPECT THAT YOU STILL TOOK THE RISK.
CGG: :( ??
CGG: is that a flattered but no?
CCG: NO, IT'S A "I ACKNOWLEDGE THAT IT MUST HAVE TAKEN EITHER IMPRESSIVE AMOUNTS OF BRAZEN SHAMELESSNESS OR ACTUAL BRAVERY TO BRING IT UP AT ALL."
CCG: I'LL HAVE TO THINK ABOUT IT.
CEB: so long as you don't say no offhand! I was kinda scared it'd be way too much and you'd just go urgh no and tell us to fuck off.
CGG: are you going to talk to gamzee about it?
CCG: THERE IS A TRULY ASTOUNDING PERCENTAGE WHICH I JUST PULLED OFF MY LEFT BUTT CHEEK THAT THIS IS INDEED GOING TO HAPPEN.
CGG: good. <3
CGG: (the talking to gamzee i mean, though your left butt cheek isnt that bad either ;333)
CGG: sooo..... talk to you tomorrow? or uh whenever you feel like it, i guess.
CCG: WE'LL SEE. HAVING TO REPEAT THE STORY TO MY MOIRAIL MIGHT FINISH THE JOB THIS CONVERSATION STARTED. CAUSE OF DEATH, BRUTAL FACIAL EXSANGUINATION. AND ALSO SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION.
CCG: *HIS BLOOD WAS ON FIRE*, MR. LEGISLACERATOR.
CEB: pfffff. you sound kinda tired. log out already. get your butt to bed or slime cocoon or a pile or gamzee's lap or whatever! <3
CEB: (also stop reminding us you're blushing, that's just unfair. i'm getting all sorts of gnnnh irl over wanting to see it and not being able to. high pitched squeeing might possibly be involved.)
CCG: EGBERT. JOHN. YOU
CCG: I
CCG: IT'S NOT FAIR BRINGING IT BACK UP AGAIN AND AGAIN EITHER.
CEB: bringing what up?
CCG: YOUR.
CCG: CRUSH-LIKE.
CCG: THING.
CCG: YOU'VE PROBABLY JUST FORGOTTEN HOW MUCH OF A LOUSY ASSHOLE I REGULARLY AM. LIKELY REFORMATTED IT AS "ADORABLY QUIRKY" INSTEAD OF OBNOXIOUS AND EARFLAP-SHATTERING SOMEHOW. IT'S BEEN THREE YEARS. WE HADN'T EVEN KNOWN EACH OTHER LONG, COMPARATIVELY.
CGG: you talk like we didnt have all those chatlogs to scroll through. <3
CEB: haha yeah, if pixels could wear thin... man.
CCG: NOT. HELPING. BULGEMUNCHERS.
CCG: THIS IS AN ENDLESS SPIRAL OF MORTIFICATION BEGETTING RUTHLESS TEASING BEGETTING MORE HUMILIATION, FOREVER CLIMBING THE ECHELADDER OF KARKAT'S APOPLEXY METER.
CGG: wow, that second half didnt even make any logical sense! its more like two different comparisons stitched together down the middle.
CGG: you must be really out of sorts. im starting to feel bad :(
CGG: youre right about the teasing, were sorry. were gonna make it easier on you. <3
CGG: goodnight, karkat, sleep well <3

EB: shotgun wedding? only instead of a shotgun dad it's a russian roulette moirail. the roulette bit isn't about if there's a bullet, it's whether you're going to get tenderly loved in the bullet hole with broken glass or with fire ants.
GG: guuh.
GG: dibs on the sweet pantsuit!!!! You guys will look darling in matching wedding dresses <3<3
EB: aw jade! why do i always have to be in a dress :(
GG: itll be easier on your unileg. :B <>
