Hey! Sorry for the short wait. Either way, here's part two of Tavros and Kanaya. Will everything go wrong? Will Tavros fall from the house? WILL KANAYA GO NUTS?
ALL THE QUESTIONS ARE ANSWERED IN THIS EXCITING INSTALLMENT OF...M4TCHM4K3RS!
Disclaimer: I do not own Homestuck. I own very few things, in reality, and this story is one of them.
COPY IT AND DIE.
I, KANAYA MARYAM, had suspected something from the start. I was never invited to play any...well, games in general. Just because of the connection to Vriska. Well, yeah, she blinded Terezi, killed Aradia's lusus, and paralyzed Tavros, but she wasn't that bad.
Okay, she was that bad. I don't know why I put up with her. Well, yes I do, but that's my business.
Either way, she had also messaged me a couple hours before this started, talking about some matchmaking game Terezi and Nepeta were playing.
I didn't pay her much mind. Vriska was pretty paranoid, so it didn't need to be completely true. That's not to say I didn't think about it. Briefly.
And then I ended up here, with Tavros, playing some game I didn't understand, and still don't, and with Terezi and Nepeta.
Vriska's conspiracy theories were becoming slightly believable. As I played the game, I thought about it. They were, if this was true and if it was what they were doing, trying to pair me up with Tavros.
I thought about it, and about the two of us. I didn't think it would work. Not to say I didn't like Tavros. It's just I didn't feel like that about him. And what about his feelings for me? Those I didn't know, still don't know, and never will know because he's dead now. But put all that aside.
Anyways, as I was saying. We were fighting some Rainbow Drinkers (Tavros wasn't doing so well, for whatever reason. Maybe it's because he's the worst class in the game, from what I heard from Vriska.) Meanwhile, I had an edge against them due to Rainbow Drinker Lore III-the highest possible. What can I say, I read a lot of books about them.
So, then Vriska messaged me on Trollian. I stood up, excused myself and walked off, walking around bifurcated and disected scalemates while talking to her.

GA: But Tavros Is Here
I blinked as she signed out, then let out a groan. I doubted any of the others would enjoy Vriska's intrusion. Tavros definitely wouldn't.
"Kanayaaaaaaa! Where are you? It's your turn!" Terezi called out from the main room. I sighed, then walked back to the room, where the three were waiting.
"Tavros managed to kill one." Nepeta informed me, grinning. Tavros looked pretty smug.
"Who was that, Kanaya?" Terezi asked politely.
I hesitated. Don't get me wrong, this game was actually pretty fun, and I knew Vriska coming over would ruin it for, well, everyone else. "Uhhh, it was Vriska." I answered quietly.
Nepeta perked her ears up curiously, and Tavros looked up. They hadn't heard. But I couldn't fool Terezi's ears. The look on her face went from one that indicated she was in a good mood to one of surprise. "Oh, great. Vriska." She groaned, causing Nepeta to blink in surprise and Tavros to freeze. "Tell me you didn't say anything."
"I couldn't lie to her! She is my moirail." I argued.
"But I lie to Equius all the time, and he's my moirail!" Nepeta said. Tavros still hadn't recovered from the shock.
Terezi sighed. "Okay, operation canceled." She declared, standing up. Nepeta looked disappointed, but not surprised. Meanwhile, me and Tavros were thoroughly confused. Terezi looked at us, then said "This...may have been a little matchmaking game." I facepalmed and Tavros flushed.
"That's what, uhh, Gamzee meant by a game?" He realized.
Terezi was waving her hands in the air. "Yes! But you guys should leave before Vriska arrives!" She demanded, kicking open the trapdoor. "Out!"
We complied. I went down first, and Tavros was lowered again by rope. I quickly took him to his hive before going to mine.
I groaned as I got back inside. My phone had started beeping. Vriska.
I am KARKAT VANTAS and, dear god, I am VERY ANNOYED.
Sollux thought it was funny to go to Nepeta's for some weird reason, and he found a big mural that detailed Nepeta's crush on me. Naturally, he sent to me. I have one thing to say to him. And that is, of course, fuck you. Because that's actually pretty creepy, her crush on me. My Lusus seemed to be somewhat amused by my somewhat cautious attitude.
Either way, I jumped a pod (A.N. More made up measuring systems.) high when my Husktop started beeping. I cautiously made my way towards it. When I got there, I saw that Kanaya had sent me a message. I opened it up and responded.
