i can't hold all this fanfiction
Announcement regarding Bubblemates: It’s being majorly overhauled!

For greater details about my feelings regarding recent chapters and reasons for this overhaul you are welcome to check out my personal blog, but the main point is simply this: they were shit, they did not belong there, and they are being pulled, reworked, and perhaps posted as their own side stories. Meanwhile, I will be start anew from where they are being cleaved and heading right on into the conclusion.

I will likely leave Bubblemates as it is now up, but know that it is an abandoned first draft, and that several of the later chapters are dead to me. I haven’t pinpointed the exact chapter number I’ll be starting from yet, but when I do I will post the likely concluding chapter as if those chapters cut were never published, I’ll change the masterlist link on my blog, etc.

The AO3 version however will not stay up the way it is now. I will be deleting the cut chapters there and then adding the new chapter when it is completed.

I still don’t guarantee the ending will be good, but at least I will be much prouder of the finished product.

Feel free to let me know if you have any input or suggestions, but know that there isn’t much compromise to be had here in regards to the now tossed older chapters. I simply cannot leave them in a finished product. The most I can give you is leaving the old draft up and if desired posting those chapters as separate extra side stories.

Thank you for your understanding and apologies if this is not what you wanted, but this is simply how it will have to be if I’m ever to finish this story and actually feel proud of it.

The Irony of Bubblemates (25/?)

I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “Brodad, it took you forever to write the last update, and you already have another one? Brodad, didn’t you say you were slowing down production rates because you’re in another country and don’t have a laptop? Brodad, were you a big, fat liar when you said that?”

I prefer the term voluptuous, but yes.

Because my muses made a hard comeback and I return with another update, despite having taken forever with the last one, being in another country, and not having a laptop.

Go figure.

Muses are a tricky business.

Title: The Irony of Bubblemates

The Irony of Bubblemates (24/?)

I don’t even want to look up how long it has been since an update. But, well, at least now I finally have one done!

And it is longer than the average chapter I believe, so, a plus there?

I’ll keep my self-criticism regarding this chapter to myself and simply hope that you enjoy it regardless.

(but as a quick little note to cover my own butt, there is a part that sort of pokes fun at some of the headcanon trends regarding troll sexual anatomy within the fandom I see around, and I just want it to be known that I don’t have anything against them or any other ideas they resemble! in many cases I find I rather enjoy them I poke fun at things I love all the time, so just know that I am not making fun of them, but instead am having fun with them.)

Title: The Irony of Bubblemates

Characters: Dave, Tavros, occasionally other characters. Equius, Nepeta, Vriska, Doomed John, mentions of Aradia, and Eridan all make appearances. (And regarding Eridan, like the last chapter with Vriska, I have to say that I have no prior experience playing with his character, but I hope I managed to keep him decently in character)

Rating: PG-16 for swearing, allusions to sexual acts, talking/joking about troll bits, and violence

Summary of this part:

In which a couple trolls and another human join the crew, and the fact that Dave is a human and Tavros is a troll is reevaluated

The Irony of Bubblemates (23/?)

Whoa, man, never thought I’d get this done.

Sorry it took ages, guys. It fought me tooth and nail to write this. To make up for it, it’s all sorts of long. So kick back for a pretty lengthy read.

Also I have all sorts of misgivings about its quality so if it’s not great compared to other chapters, that’s why.

Title: The Irony of Bubblemates

Characters: Dave, Tavros, occasionally other characters. Equius, Nepeta, Bro, AND Vriska all make appearances. I apologize for the latter and how I probably am garbage at writing her.

Rating: PG-16 for swearing and mentions of nudity/sex

Summary of this part:

In which deaths are discussed and an old bully makes an appearance

mechanised:

   “Tavros.” 
           “Mm?” The troll kept playing, and as far as Dave could tell he did not glance over.
           “I’m gonna go find a sharpie and draw some pupils on your eyes, alright?”
           The glassy eyes swiveled,  and now Dave knew that the troll was looking at him. It helped that his  eyes grew wider and his brows shifted between raised and furrowed.  “What?”
The background is terribly empty but I really like this anyway. :3
Fan art for The Irony of Bubblemates, which I have been wanting to do for a while. Now to … let my hand rest I think.
: D Enjoy.

Oh man this is all the wonderful
I can’t get over how incredibly amused Dave looks and
Yes
Catch me I’m fainting

The Irony of Bubblemates (22/?)

Sorry it took so long, awesome readers, and sorry that what you get is on the short, derpy side. In the next chapter we get into a new aspect of the relationship with a new character shaking stuff up and stuff that’s interesting and not making out.

But I don’t have time to write that now, so I’m afraid this will have to do. Thank you all so much for being awesome and putting up with me being slower now and taking forever to get out of the sexy time theme, and hope you enjoy. I have to post and run.

Title: The Irony of Bubblemates

Characters: Dave, Tavros, occasionally other characters.

Rating: Somewhere between PG-16 and R for swearing and vague-ish sex

Summary of this part:

In which young men have no patience and a label is finally given

The Irony of Bubblemates (21/?)

I don’t even know what to say to you guys. I can’t even believe that you’re all here and all this beautiful fanart and just—

Man, you guys spoil me rotten.

You’re all my favorite.

Also with this and part of the next one, we may finally be over the hormonal teenager stage. Maybe. We’ll see. For now, a little bit more of it.

Title: The Irony of Bubblemates

Characters: Dave, Tavros, occasionally other characters. Jade and Terezi make a showing, though I can’t guarantee that either of them are well written.

Rating: PG-16 for swearing and sexual themes (but not actual sex just yet, so I’ll put it as still in the PG-16 range. But it’s pretty not innocent)

Summary of this part:

In which Dave gets something in his eye and Tavros finally gets a response.

The Irony of Bubblemates (20/?)

Alright, new part, still sort of swimming in the world of teenage hormones. What you gonna do?

Also this will likely be the last part you’ll get until around next weekend/maybe later since this brodad has a lot of schoolwork to get cracking on and then a little brodad’s graduation to attend. So. Fair warning.

 

Title: The Irony of Bubblemates

Characters: Dave, Tavros, occasionally other characters. Our favorite moirails Nepeta and Equius are back for some fun.

Rating: PG-16 for swearing and teenage hickey-making

Summary of this part: In which Dave and Tavros get neighbors and payback is a sweet bitch
