Is that your ghost or are you really there? )

a/n: Man, I suck. I was supposed to work on Trying, but I got um…. sidetracked? Whatever, I’ve been playing around with an idea like this for a while now. I was planning on making a one-shot Harold/Rhonda set in my Darkverse. Instead, I think this is going to be a 3-5 chapter fic that’s Harold/Rhonda in the Darkverse, but with an emphasis on Rhonda and love and death and love/life after death and teamwork and sex and distant hopes and just… whatever I think fits in, basically.

I will go back to Trying soon! Like, I’m not going to try and finish this first or anything silly like that.

Also, the timeline of this is gonna be weird. Next chapter is gonna be what was happening two years ago. And the one following that should be from the present. At least in theory.

I actually didn't plan for Harold to be dead when I started this. It just sort of happened that way. :(

a/n: Fun! Also, I don't write drabbles. It is PHYSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE for me to write drabbles. Or something. That Curly/Eugene one? 800+ words more than a drabble should be! :(

Also, OMG NEW ICONS/MOOD THEME. I love them all so much. My mood theme is ANIMATED SOUL EATER MOODS FUCK YEAH. Seriously, fucking awesome show/manga (I've read through all the manga, but have so far only seen the first episode of the anime, but SO PRETTY OMG). Death the Kid is totally my favorite and it's so obvious that he would be, because he is obsessed with SYMMETRY and IS A BADASS and HAS MAN RINGS XLKJLFKJDSLKFJSDLFKSJFLSDFJL. The mood set does not have enough Tsubaki though. I love her. SO MUCH.

Uh, anyway. You can still request drabbles and do all the other meme things if'n you want. They're in the last post. Oh, but don't request Soul Eater drabbles yet because I would fail so bad at them. I would.

In which Arnold tells his story... )

a/n: Those like first three mini flashbacks? Yeah, he doesn't tell her those - they're just his own vague thoughts as he tries to pull the story together. I don't think I made that all too clear.

LOL, did you like my little Strangetown reference? An asshole named Buzz. It's not a super obvious connection or anything, but I needed a name for the guy and that's what sprang to mind.

Haha, got questions? ASK AWAY. I know the flashback stuff was a little bit vague in some parts. I can't promise I'll answer everything, but don't be afraid to ask anyway!

Also, WOLFGANG! I have a really weird affection for him. And if you're worried that he's being too nice here - don't worry! He's still kind of a dick. You'll see. XD

Chapters: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7


In which it doesn't stop raining... )

a/n: I LIED. I said you'd get answers in this chapter. YOU DON'T. Aren't I the worst?

On the upside (or downside depending on the kind of person you are) the next chapter is probably going to be completely full of flashbacks! We shall relive the experience right there with Arnold. Huzzah!

Oh god, you don't know how badly I want to go through each and everyone of these chapters and point all the ridiculous canon throwbacks and symbolism, because I keep doing adding them! I DON'T EVEN TRY TO.

Also, I told you they'd changed. This story is mostly about them finding themselves again. Also, ADVENTURE! Seriously, there's so many awesome things that I've got planned for this story. I keep sort of going 'round in circles about some of the plottier details though. I'll figure it out soon though.

Oh and here's a little reference thing mostly for myself, but you guys might enjoy it too. What's in Helga and Arnold's pockets?!


HELGA'S:

- $20 bill (gone now)
- Gum
- Cellphone
- Chapstick
- Beeper (on her belt - perks of being big bob's daughter)
- 2 pens
- Small notebook for taking orders

ETA: - A flier for Rhonda's party



ARNOLD'S:

- Pocket Knife type thing (has a screwdriver, a knife and maybe something else small, but useful?)
- Driver's License (expired)
- One 20 dollar bill, one 10 and three 5's ($45 total)
- Pocket watch (his grandpa's (The Sewer King))
- Journal (he has big side pockets and he'll eventually stick the journal in one of them)

ETA: - A flier for Rhonda's party and a small newspaper clipping

Chapters: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7


In which Helga receives an invitation and Arnold runs into some trouble... )

a/n: Hee, hopefully there's some nice surprises in this chapter. Yes, we are going to get to see quite a few of the old gang. None of them are terribly plot important, but they'll be helping out a lot.

And La Corazon! <33333 Yes I am totally writing a TJM-ish story at a totally non-TJM time. Or well, TJM happened in this story, but Arnold didn't find ANYTHING. No evidence that his parents are alive or dead or had ever existed at all. And this is sort of the end result of that. It's an Arnold who lost his hope and a Helga who got her life stuck in Arnold's leaving. They're both very stunted emotionally. Arnold gave up on a lot of things and Helga hasn't really formed her own identity. But they'll get there!

And the next chapter includes some answers! They're on a road trip after all - time for Arnold to explain some things.

The urban legend was totally spur of the moment and basically added because of this.

In which our heroes make their daring escape... )

a/n: I was actually planning on pushing this chapter a little bit further, but things seemed to be winding down so I decided to cut it off. Damn, it takes them FOREVER to get from point A to point B. Also, I was originally going to have them just ending up on a street and either Helga or Arnold would hotwire a car, but it didn't pan out that way. Sorry Mrs. Grant.

Also, I love action. And characters getting snippy at one another.

Next Chapter: Helga and Arnold make a pit stop or two and then plan out their next destination.

a/n: Lol, longest chapter yet and the plot in my head at the beginning of this was basically: "Get Arnold to the door." Haha, awesome.

Um, also I don't really foresee this being a super fluffy story. More adventure-y than anything? But there's a lot of Helga/Arnold bonding!

In which there is a truly bizarre quirk of fate... )

a/n: Depressing, eh? Oh well, it happens. There's some bare-bones as far as backstory goes now, which is pretty sweet I suppose.

Oh and the next chapter is where things will finally start HAPPENING. Are you excited for that? I AM.

Also, I'm pretty sure chapters are going to end up getting longer as I go along. So uh, you've been warned I suppose.

And, thank you guys so much for the feedback so far! I wasn't really expecting more than like one or two people to even notice this.

Oh, I'll also probably have bits of extra stuff to show you involving the story, because I'm a super visual person so I like to sketch out parts of scenes and things like character design will come along too, because I have fun with that. :3

In which Helga G. Pataki is late.... )

a/n: I'm not making any promises about this. I don't want to say I'm going to finish this or that I even know where it's going at all. I just... I really want to try and see if I can write something - ANYTHING that has some sort of continuity. I've only ever finished two multi-chaptered... things. One was Downfall, which is totally original and also sort of... insane. The other was a five part story that I wrote mostly because our internet was down for a week. I don't have a great track record with multi-chaptered stuff.

Also, I only have a very vague idea for a plot, so bear with me please!

Yeah, I'm gonna use Arnold Shortman for Arnold's full name. It was never my favorite choice, but I'm pretty sure it's either confirmed as his last name or so damn close that it doesn't really matter.

a/n: This was actually supposed to be a Frances/Tank...thing. But it uh.... didn't really go there? Except it did a little? But that isn't the overall point? :\

Also, pictures are for chumps. Lol.

This Tank is basically S,HWC's Tank, but also not really? Like, it could be maybe, but maybe not at all. I don't know, I have a hard time breaking Strange's Tank down. But it's definitely a Tank that went through the same storylines that her Tank did, but the outcomes and personalities of this Tank might be quite a bit different. This Tank is very... muted. It's that whole 'walking through life without being alive' thing that I like to explore. I especially like when these 'dead' characters finally realize what it means to 'live'. Tank doesn't really get one of those moments though. :C
