A SELECTION from the latter half of this fanfiction follows the author's note. The original chapters have been removed and this abbreviated chapter posted in order to alert all of my followers of the migration of my writing. This second chapter itself will be removed in one month's time.

If you wish to read the FULL fanfiction, you can find it at the author's Archive of Our Own account, linked on her profile.

I have made the decision to cut off my fanfiction from this site due to ideological differences with site management. I believe that fan-works should be free, which means not only free monetarily, but also free of restrictions such as this site's ban on chat-fics (virtually ruining the Homestuck fandom), second-person point of view stores (it's...a POV...really), and, of course, adult materials, among other things.

I understand that this may upset some readers, but I ask that you respect my decision about how to manage my creative works. They still exist, un-altered, on another site.

I highly recommend you give AO3 a try. Joining the Archive of Own is a simple process, though it may take a few days to go through the waiting list. However, AO3 was created by fans, is FUNDED by fans (meaning it is advertisement-free), and does not restrict anything unless for valid copyright issues. It also has a robust tagging and search system, as well as a series manager, which will reduce the confusion regarding many of my works. If you are an author and would like an invitation, please message me through PM to see if I have any available.

Thank you for all your support as I entered into the world of fan-works. If you're interested in more of my fan-works, including audio productions, cosplay, and videos, please check my Tumblr, also linked on my profile.

Fan-girling with you all,


He gave the slightest of shrugs and wrapped his other arm around her waist, pulling the elf against his chest. "You don't have to understand me, Holly. What's important is...can you accept me?" Still finding it hard to believe that she was tolerating this closeness, he leaned his head in, stopping when their noses rested together. Waiting for her to move.

She couldn't help but give a single "ha" at this. "Do I have a choice? You seem to have a hold on me."

"You always have a choice. I will never hold you against your will again."

"Ah..." She closed her eyes. "In that case..."

Very gently, she pushed him away.

Artemis let his arm uncurl from her waist. He bobbed in the water, focusing on a point between their two bodies. He seemed to be collecting himself. When he finally did speak, his voice cracked on the first words. "Very well. We should probably get to work. There's a lot to do and—"

Kicking as hard as she could, Holly launched herself at Artemis, wrapping her arms around his neck and dragging them both under the surface. She took a moment to enjoy the startled look in his eyes before leaning in, joining their lips in a fervent kiss.

Holly hoped Artemis had taken a deep breath before she pulled him down. They could only remain under the water for so long before the need for air would force them up. Then they would have a long talk and, if she knew both of their personalities, there was likely to be another fight. In the meantime, she simply indulged in the feel of his arms wrapping around her waist, pulling their bodies together as they sunk into the dark blue.
