Summary: Wherein a debt is called, FLARP is played, and suddenly Sollux Captor finds himself in the middle of a terribly-planned coup. Contains caste politics, an incredible amount of snark, an inadvisable basement operating theatre, quite a lot of relationship drama, and too many fucking pesterlogs since our hero never leaves his hive.

“I never had the luxury of not dealing in blood,” Vriska says. Even if you wanted to, her tone is so blank that you can’t glean a thing from it, and you’re not about to turn around and hold a conversation with her while she’s ripping your soul into shreds. “I never had the choice to not make unpalatable choices.” She waits to see if she’s gotten a rise out of you, then sighs. “Fucking enjoy, Sol.”

You can’t bring yourself to reply.

Reccer's Notes: Surprise! This fic is not here because I got a worldbuilding boner over it. It's here for the characterization boner I got over it. (...Okay, maybe it's not that surprising.) Homestuck characters can be tricky to manage- especially Vriska, who is one fucked up troll.

This fic is Sollux-centric, and is told from his point of view, which done well, as it is here, is a feat not to be sneezed at. Aradia's alive, and their relationship is a thing to behold. The relationships in general are done nicely.

To sum up: Good plot and writing, but most of all this fic has lovely characterization.

(Really tempted to tag "irons in the fire" or "plot shenanigans". Not legit tropes; must resist)
