Your name is TAVROS NITRAM.
You are known to be heavily arrested by music of a REBELLIOUS NATURE. And although you are still too shy to admit it to your REBELLIOUS PUNK FRIENDS you have also started to acquire a certain taste for MUSIC OF A HIP-HOP ORIGIN.
By reiterating how REBELLIOUS and ANARCHISTIC you are on a frequent basis, you are most certainly sure people will view you as a PRETTY CONFIDENT GUY with LOTS OF RAD SELF-ESTEEM.

However being HOMELESS right now isn't helping with that so much.

That aside, you are actually a pretty KIND-HEARTED KID with a deep respect and passion for WILDLIFE AND THE OUTDOORS. You also enjoy CARDGAMES and LARPING and your D&D AND SHADOWRUN ROLEPLAYING BOOKS ARE ALMOST SACRED TO YOU ON A RELIGIOUS LEVEL.

Did you mention that you speak in a manner that is uHH, rEALLY CONFIDENT AND ASSERTIVE, uM, ALL OF THE TIME, tHIS IS DEFINITELY PRETTY OBVIOUS AND CLEAR, rIGHT, uh, yEAH,,

What will you do?
It’s August 2012. Or so you thought.

Fast forward to:

November 22nd, 2012

Wait no no. That’s in the past now. It’s December 19th, so—-

Go.

Back.

[[>NOVEMBER 22nd, 2012<]]

Today was a very special day.

On November 22nd, 2012, you and your girlfriend would have been all moved into your new apartment. Gamzee and Dave were in the living room, playfully fighting over the remote. Kitkat was skateboarding in the park. There was a box of half-eaten lo-mein on the kitchen counter and someone had dropped a sock from a clean load of laundry and hadn’t bothered to pick it up off the rug. The bathroom had facepaint and hair gel sitting on the back of the toilet, and no one had bothered to make their beds that morning.

It was lived in. Happy. Home.

You and Resa were out, however. It was a very special day after all.

The two of you ate heartily at the restaurant, holding hands with the one that wasn’t occupied with a fork. Sometimes under the table like shy little kids, sometimes over the tablecloth, rubbing one another’s knuckles. You chatted and laughed and whispered promises, blushed and blustered, and were terribly, stupidly, painfully in love.

[rewind]

You told her Charizard was pretty great after all.

[[[rewind]]]

You asked her if she wanted to get married.

[[[STOP]]]

There were

…a lot of things

that could have been

would have been

have been.

> It is November 22nd, 2012.

And your mind is caught in August. The bleached bones of Golden God body in death-like limbo, stripped bare in the New Mexican sun.

It’s your one year anniversary.

And you are alone.

> There were a lot of things you wanted to do.

Number one was finally moving the last of your belongings out of your grandmother’s house in New Mexico.

Then you were going to message Terez—-you were going to message Resa and see if you could help your pale-bro once and for all.

You wake up.

> Respond.

Feeling your phone vibrate, you check it for pixel-Rezi’s latest message—-blanching a little at “Vriska says hi”…

Feeling more and more awkward with each passing second, you struggle to blurt out some sort of intelligent update to your date.

BR: oKAY UM, sO, tHAT WAS tEREZI FROM MY OWN TIMELINE, bECAUSE yEAH, iT WAS, aND SHE SAID THEY’RE—-i MEAN HER—-iS„,aRE APPROACHING, aND TO JUST WATCH FOR—-„„

> Spot her.

You see Vriska before Terezi.

You wish you’d seen your gaming friend first. You really really had, it would have been better, more reassuring, more—

She looked commandeering and as bold as ever, seeming to part the crowd just by walking through it. Long black-blue hair was swept up and held in place with a ridiculous pirate-ship fascinator, the look completed by being clothed in an over-the-top French rococo court dress.

> Say something.

You do. You really try.

You manage to croak out a high-pitched “sUP PIXEL SISTER,?” while staring dumbly at your ex-girlfriend the whole time.

This. Was going to be.

Awkward…

> TAVROS: Receive pixelTerezi’s latest text.

Vriska was coming? The Vriska from YOUR timeline and YOUR past and YOUR hometown was…

She was the last person you had expected to see tonight.

Do I tell Rez? I don’t want to ruin the mood, but at the same time, I…

You force a wry grin, looking up from your phone back over at your date.

BR: th,—-sHE SAID SHE JUST LEFT HER CAR, aND THAT SHE’S ABOUT TO MEET UP WITH US SOON,! sO WE CAN JUST WAIT HERE NO PROB, yEAH,! uHHH, wANT ME TO BUY YOU SOME CARAMEL POPCORN FROM A VENDOR WHILE WE’RE WAITING, oR„,

No. No sense in saying anything right now. It was too late either way.

The best you could pray for at this point was being peaceful and cordial with your ex, and hope that you could get pixel-Rezi away soon enough so she could hang out with you guys.

Without Vriska.

It wasn’t that you didn’t think you could make peace with her after all these years. Hell, you were more at peace than you’d ever been. It was just that ever since Vriska had told you about those texts…

> Gnaw your lower lip a bit.

It was just for the best that your current girlfriend and your ex-girlfriend spent as little time around each other as possible. It just was.

[text] BR: yEAH, rAINBOWrEZ SAYS SHE WANTS TO CHALLEN—-„,wAIT WHAT„?

> Swallow hard, staring wide-eyed at your phone before slowly typing another response back.

SB: vRISKA’S WITH YOU„,?
