Hey, my name's Kris. I write bullshit fanfictions, as this is. I've actually had the idea for this as a comic, but I can't draw on the computer for my life and I don't have a Tumblr. So a story it is! This is really my third Homestuck FF, but my other two are obviously stupid because I don't get any sort of feedback from them EVER. Check those out all you want, I don't care, and I hardly update them. Anyways, this is a strict fan FICTION; there will pairings (mostly including boy/boy. Yes I like yaoi), I most likely will be out of character, so you can yell at me about that all you please. The humans aren't here neither will they ever be, Sburb WILL NOT be mentioned AT ALL, the trolls will stay trolls (sort of), and the seadwellers will stay seadwellers. I don't own Homestuck, Andrew Hussie does. Enjoy :)
Sollox's POV: Three hours in the past…
"I didn't know you liked those kinds of movies, Sollox," Feferi said. I was walking her to the shoreline after I took her to see a dumb romance movie.
"KK thuggested I thee it, but I thought it'd be better if I took thomeone to thee it with me." (A.N: lol, lisp) She laughed. Why was I so nervous? Maybe it just the dumb movie that was getting to me. FF and I were holding hands and walking along the beach until she finally stopped at a small ledge. She turned to face me, but wouldn't look at me.
"Thoming wrong?" I asked her.
"I've wanted to ask you something…"
"What'th that?" She leaned in close, our noses touching. My cheeks felt hot; I gazed into her near pink eyes as she wrapped her arms around my neck.
"Will you…be my matesprit?" she whispered to me. Did she really just ask me that, I thought. I didn't know what to say, no words would come. I leaned in closer, she did the same, and our lips touched. I don't know how long we stayed like that, a few seconds? Minutes? It all felt so perfect; the sky a deep orange color, the sea breeze gently hitting our faces, it was just perfect—all of it. I can't even explain it. Once we pulled away, FF smiled again. It wasn't one of her normal smiles, this one looked warmer, a more-than-moirails kind of smile. I liked it.
"I'll take that as a 'yes.'" And with that, she dove in the waves, thus marking the end of our outing. I don't think I was ever as happy as I was then and there.
"So you finally decided to open the fucking door? Or are you just tired of hearing me scream at you?" KK walks in. I don't have anything to do, so I figured it would be okay for KK to come and play video games with me, of course I'd have to put up with his yelling, but that's easy.
"I'll thend you back to your hive." I tell him.
"Whatever. Mind telling why your face has some of your weird honey shit on it?" he pulls up the extra chair in front of my desk.
"Check the area under your eyes, it's the color of mustard, you dumb shit."
"Aw, what?" I go to get a damp towel. Why am I still blushing?
"Hey, did you see that movie I was telling you about?" KK must be starting the game. I knew I should've put a code on it; he doesn't have a single ounce of patience in his being.
"Yeah, I took FF to thee it." I smile at the events as of earlier.
"Why would you take your girlfriend to see it?"
"Becauthe unlike you, I actually have a girlfriend to thee thappy romance flickth with."
"Oh ha-ha, look at that—the lonely hack motherfucker made a shitty joke. Now will you hurry up? This game is stupid without another player."
"Will you wait?" I wipe my face with the wet towel. Was it clean? As soon as the thing hit my face it felt like an electrical current shot through me. That was weird. I figure I'm still in a daze from earlier; I must be since I was still blushing. I return to the other room and take the other seat be KK, who won't stop giving me this weirded-out look.
"What?" I ask.
"Umm…" Holy shit there must be something seriously wrong. KK has never been speechless before.
"What happened?" Now I'm worried.
"Your uh…you have these…things," he stammers.
"Will you talk? What happened?" he's quiet for a while.
"You have a mirror, right?" I nod. He brings be to the mirror in my bathroom (A.N: I'm using 'blueblood' terms because I'm at a loss for what a troll on the lower part of the scale would call it) and I see why he's freaked out.
"W-WHAT THE FUCK? WHAT HAPPENED TO ME?" there are bullshit fucking fins actual fins on my face. I try pulling them off hoping they're fake, but I just barely touch them and they twitch away. I grab hold of them and quickly yank my hands away, grabbing them hurt.
"Dude, what in the name of fuck happened to you?" KK is more nervous than he was earlier.
"How thould I know? Latht time I checked, thpontaneouthly thprouting bullthit finth ithn't normal!" I have every possible right to be freaking the fuck out right now, trolls don't randomly sprout fins. KK takes a step back when I yell at him, I try to calm down.
"Look, thorry for yelling, but—what the fuck?"
"Did anything happen?" he still seems scared, but he's willing to help at least.
"Well, no. I barely did anything today. I took FF to the movie, walked her to the beach, came home, took a nap, invited you over, and then, thith!"
"That doesn't make sense, something must've happened." He gets an idea. "I'm gonna get Kanaya on Trollian's TrollChat, she might be more helpful." He leaves. I get some water to drink; I'm extremely thirsty for some reason. I get through a few glassfuls before KK calls me to the desk. On the screen of my computer is Kanaya, her eyebrows raise at the sight of me.
"My, that's…quite a predicament you're in there." She says.
"Can you help?" I ask.
"Probably not, but I have a theory as to how this happened to you. Would you like to know?"
"Yes we would like to know how the fuck this happened." KK says.
"It was a rhetorical question, Karkat," she gets a book from off the screen. "There is a legend, respectfully called the 'Legend of the Seadwellers", in which a seadweller would go on land and fall in love with a landweller. In the deep love the seadweller and the landweller would be in, they would exchange a kiss. Later the landweller would realize that whenever he would get wet he would grow the gills of a seadweller and from the moment he kissed the seadweller he would slowly turn into one himself. Of course, it's only a legend, and if this could happen, or even did happen, it would be too long ago to have any sort of records on. Though, living proof of this is here, in front of us. Who'd have thought it'd be real?"
"Wait, Sollox did you and Feferi kiss?" KK asks.
"Yeah, but thith ith a bullthit legend you're talking about, it can't be real!"
"Then are you suggesting the three of us are all hallucinating the same thing at the same time? I find the odds of that astronomical." says Kanaya.
"Well, we know what happened at least. Does the legend say how to turn back if it actually did happen?" KK asks.
"As I said, this is a very old legend. My only real resources are from my book of myths and a seadweller/landweller romance novel that you, Karkat, suggested I read. If you remember, it also said that that the landweller would, over time, turn into a seadweller himself."
"WHAT?" what Kanaya said couldn't possibly be true, could it? I don't believe it!
"Whoa, that can't possibly be right! Look at him now, see? The fins are gone. The legend is a legend after all." KK says. I feel my face and see he's right, they're gone.
"Yes, it appears he's dry now. Get water on him again and see if they come back. If they don't, he's fine. If they do, however…well let's hope they don't." KK looks at me and I look back at him.
"Give it a shot?" he asks. I'm nervous. What if they come back and I'm doomed to being a half-assed fish?
"Yeah, let'th try it." I agree. It's just a stupid legend, right? I like Feferi, but I don't wanna live in water like she does. KK leaves and comes back with a glass of water; he dips his fingers in the glass.
"Ready?" he asks.
"It'th jutht a bullthit legend, nothing'th gonna happen." I say, mostly trying to reassure myself. He flicks drops of water at me. I feel that electrical current again, a bit stronger this time. Not strong enough to inflict pain, but enough to annoy me. I can feel the fins twitching, DAMMIT!
"I…don't think I needed to see that. Fucking creepy, dude." KK sits back down and I take the glass from him to drink.
"I don't know what to say. This is the first time this kind of thing has ever happened, so I don't know what to tell you." Kanaya says, then her face lights up. "Oh, well, you could ask him."
"Do I really need to specify who? I think you know. He could help you, seeing as how skilled he is in the field of science."
"There was no need for emphasizing science, plus Eridan can't do science for shit. It's all his shitty magic spells and whatever." KK says.
"It's a simple suggestion, Karkat. He might be of some help. And if his services to turn Sollox to normal don't work he can teach him how to be a seadweller."
"BULLTHIT! You will have to KILL me before I take any thort of help or advice from him!" I shudder at the thought of taking help from Eridan.
"It's your best shot, since I believe you want to keep this a secret from Feferi." I don't say anything. Why? Because Kanaya is right, I don't want Feferi to think this is her fault, it'd be better if I just keep it from her.
"Fine. We'll go thee Eridan." I sigh. I can't believe I've been reduced to him.
"Should I tell him you two are coming?" Kanaya says.
"No, I'd rather show up unexpectedly and watch him squirm a little." KK says, "But look, you CANNOT tell anyone this happened. It's just between me, Sollox, you and fish fuck. Got it?"
"Yes, Karkat, don't worry. I will keep the secret. But, I'd look out for Eridan if I were you two. He might drop a hint to Feferi by accident. They live closely together, you know." she closes out of the chat.
"Dammit, he would talk. We can't trust him!" I get up from the chair.
"Relax dude, I'm gonna help you. If he does anything, he's done okay? Don't worry about it." KK comes up behind me and squeezes my shoulder with what looks like his version of a smile on his face.
"I should dry off before we leave, shouldn't I?"
"Yeah that'd be a good idea."
Well this is stupid. I feel like a pathetic fan girl. Well, for this story, I'll be your bitch. Want me to continue? Comment. I am open to suggestions and advice as well, so make sure you give it. I'm also taking suggestions, so you can give those too.
God, this feels so short compared to my other stories, I hope it's good. Well, that's all from me. Bye.
