Title: And Quite a Story to Tell
Fandom: Homestuck
Characters/Pairings: Dave/Jade, Rose, Kanaya, Karkat, Equius, Eridan [background Rose/Kanaya, Aradia/Equius]
Rating/Warnings: PG-13, discussions of sex, pesterlog-fic
Written for: [ profile] digi_dragon's request, for a really ill-advised meme I did on Tumblr
Wordcount: 3,000
A/N: For the record, this takes place several years after the events of canon. Also, given how frankly torturous LJ was the last time I tried to post anything, screw it, I'm not coloring the text. Unapologetic fluff, as a break from a number of depressing WIPs that I swear will see the light of day at some point.

gardenGnostic [GG] opened memo on linear timeline board Notes On the Metaphorical Fridge.

GG: okay everyone we have a problem!!!
GG: the air filtration system i set up in the mansion isnt working anymore :(
CA: wwho the fuck cares
GG: well breathing is nice!!! we don’t all have gills you know >:(
GG: and you cant stay underwater all the time
TG: fuck off eridan
TG: but jade i dont know if you noticed
TG: were still breathing
EB: yeah, why do we even need that thing?
TT: It’s a safeguard.
TT: You recall the incident with the coal pollution earlier this year?
TT: We would have had a much more difficult time without Jade’s clever system in place.
GG: thanks rose!!!
GG: but it isnt that clever i guess
GG: im trying to figure out what happened but i think we might need new parts for it
GG: but i’ll fix it as fast as i can!!!!
GA: I Am Sure You Will
GA: But There Is No Need To Rush Too Much
GA: The Air Is Fine At Present And Will Likely Remain So
TG: now youve done it


tentacleTherapist [TT] opened memo on linear timeline board Notes On the Metaphorical Fridge.

TT: Everyone, I have news regarding the explosion earlier.
TT: It seems we may owe Eridan an apology. He had nothing to do with it.
CA: i glubbin told you
GA: You Must Admit It Was A Safe Bet
CA: fuck

caligulasAquarium has signed out.

GA: Oh Dear
TT: I really don’t care about upsetting him on that topic.
TT: However, back to the matter at hand.
TT: There has evidently been some damage to the airborne-waste treatment pipes of the factory down the block.
TG: so
TT: That is not helpful, Karkat.
TT: None of the chemicals being released are, technically speaking, harmful, so fixing it is a relatively low priority.
TT: Unfortunately, one of them does function as a fairly strong aphrodisiac to certain species, which are quite likely to include present company.
TG: are you fucking kidding me
EB: wait, what does that mean?
TG: an aphrodisiac is a thing that turns you on like fuck
TG: so were all gonna be walking around hard as a fucking rock all the time
TG: those of us who have dicks anyway
TT: Thank you for that delightfully graphic explanation, Dave.
TT: Although it is fairly accurate.
TT: All of us are most likely to be artificially aroused.
TT: We’ll probably begin feeling the effects within the next few hours.
EB: ……………………
CT: D - - > Fiddlesticks.
TG: when the fuck did you get here
CT: D - - > Just now.
CT: D -- > This will be difficult.
TT: And probably rather less pleasant than one would think.
TT: Everyone, please behave responsibly.
TT: Do nothing that you will regret when this wears off.
TT: Do not take advantage of the situation, either.
TT: This means you, Eridan, if you’ve signed back in yet.
CA: oh for mother glubbin fucks glubbing sake
GA: You Cannot Possibly Protest That That Was An Unjust Accusation
CA: come on kan
CA: cant catch a fuckin break for five minutes
GA: I Wonder Why
GA: Certainly We Have No Reason To Believe Less Than The Best Of You
CA: okay whatever
EB: okay, back on topic!
EB: so nobody do anything with anyone that you’re not already in a relationship with!
EB: or filling a quadrant with!
EB: this is an order as your friendleader!
TT: Yes, thank you, Karkat, I believe that we have all grasped the point.
GA: Although His Advice Is Sound
GG: so um!!!
GG: do we know what caused this explosion?!?!
TT: Hello, Jade.
TT: Evidently an unidentified airborne object struck a particularly complicated bit of piping, cracking it, and somehow ignited some of the escaping gas.
TT: I’m not clear on the details.
CT: D - - > Was it by any chance a circular metal container about a foot across
CT: D -- > Propelled by rocketry and theoretically possible to steer by remote control
GG: equius!!!!
CT: D - - > But somewhat difficult to maneuver in practice
GG: stop talking!!!!!
TG: ………........
TT: Equius, do you by any chance know something you would like to share with the rest of us?
CT: D -- > Er
CT: D --> I have just been instructed to stop talking
GA: I Suggest You Do That
GA: In The Name Of Plausible Deniability
EB: will that help?
GG: well……..
GG: we were flying it from the roof so :(
GG: but we were being careful!!!!!
EB: cosigned!
EB: at least to the rockets.
EB: we’ll have to discuss the roof thing but go with it for now.
GG: :p
GG: fine
CT: D -- > We will comply with this restriction.
CT: D -- > And the restrictions on quadrants
TG: big sacrifice
TG: aradias banging the shit out of you all the time
CT: D -- > Please refrain from such 100d remarks about my matespirit
TG: whatever whatever
GG: can it okay guys!!!!!!
GG: but yeah we’ll stay off the roof
GG: D:
TT: Excellent.
TT: Hopefully we can all get through this inconvenience without anything else dramatic happening.

GG: so awkward!!!!
TG: ha thats great
TG: kinda figured you would be anyway though
GG: dave!!!! no!!!!

GG: and also aradia would be really sad and nepeta would be really angry
GG: and just..........
GG: no
GG: so weird!!!!!
TG: okay okay
TG: point made
TG: so this whole thing is distracting for you too
GG: well of course!!!!!!!!
GG: it is really starting to piss me off >:[
GG: i need to be able to focus on the damn filtration system
GG: and its tricky!!!!! suddenly thinking about sex instead of gears is not helpful
GG: and also i feel like if im spending this much time being turned on and staring at engines then im going to imprint or something :/
TG: haha yeah
TG: i feel you
TG: hang up some pinup posters or something
TG: so its like something normal is making you horny
TG: wow this is a weird conversation
GG: haha yeah!!!!
GG: does this count as ironic? ;)
GG: but the thing is i dont want to make it any harder to focus and i dont want to end up just sitting there drooling
TG: yeah
TG: seriously i am just going to go kick some managers ass or something
TG: fix your fucking factory
GG: heehee i’ll help!!!!
GG: although i guess i dont really have the right to be mad since its sort of my fault :(
GG: but its just so frustrating
GG: i cant even sit comfortably or anything!!!!! >:[
TG: oh god you too
TG: same
GG: yeah!!!!!!!!
GG: ill just be halfway through replacing a circuit and then suddenly i realize im like humping my own leg
TG: ................................

GG: so yes its really that bad
GG: dave?
TG: oh sorry i was just thinking

GG: um thank you but i dont think you know much about mechanics really so!!!!
TG: no the uh
TG: other thing
GG: what???
GG: oh
TG: yeah
TG: hand mouth whatever
TG: full set of anatomy at your disposal
TG: it doesnt have to be a big deal or anything
TG: just you know to make it easier to focus afterwards maybe
TG: i guess
TG: if you want
GG: um......................
GG: well
GG: dave
GG: i appreciate the offer
GG: but i dont really want to have sex with you just because its convenient!!!!
GG: like i get that you just meant to be nice
GG: but i am not a sex toy
GG: and you arent either
GG: and there is nothing wrong with casual sex but its not like were strangers
GG: and if i am going to have sex with you then i would really prefer that it was for more of a reason than that were both horny and were there!!!!!!
GG: like say that we actually liked each other like that
TG: shit
TG: look
GG: no dave its okay i am not mad
GG: like i said i know you just wanted to help
GG: but i just
GG: i have actually thought about this a lot since this started happening
TG: wait thought about this meaning what exactly
TG: like just taking the edge off with one of us
TG: or like
TG: me
GG: well :/
GG: that is a really awkward question
GG: i knew there was a pretty good chance that you would help me out if i went to you
GG: but i decided even before this that i didnt want to ruin things
GG: and that i would want it to mean something
GG: if it happened
GG: and i knew it wouldnt mean anything for you so
TG: what back up here
TG: do you mean that it would mean something for you
GG: .................
GG: um
GG: well :/
TG: jade
GG: its okay though i know you dont feel the same way
GG: and i know you were only trying to help!!!!!!!!!!!
