Lucidity – ghostofgatsby

When Trott had pulled Smith from the ship wreckage that came ashore during the storm, he’d thought the man to be dead, what with a leg splintered in the wrong direction. Trott didn’t ask Smith why he’d been out to sea with a forecast of bad weather; in return, Smith didn’t ask why Trott lived alone, so far from coastal cities. Smith had his own secrets, his own scars, and his own stories to rival Trott’s. Neither were willing to admit they were hiding- from themselves, or from things they couldn’t change.

college preacher AU

Random ideas/headcanons that won’t get fics anytime soon. If anyone wants to add on/chime in/create something, feel free.

There was a guy handing out New Testaments outside one of the buildings on campus.

This later turned into ideas about Divorced young adult minister Sips and “I’m all out of fucks to give about college and this prayer/church study group has free food” wayward student Trott.

cw: religion. My Catholic Guilt says I should Probably Feel Bad, Man, but it’s okay

alter UMY: The Bad Baron AU

Random ideas/headcanons that won’t get fics anytime soon. If anyone wants to add on/chime in/create something, feel free.

Based on a dream I had- some sort of alter UMY-verse, in which fae-ish Trott visits a pub he’s been to before and runs into a minor annoyance.

I dunno what Trott is, A vampire, maybe, but not in the conventional sense, and also some sort of magic user, so maybe a sorcerer/warlock too? Or a fairy. I dunno.

Though it could be read differently, I also imagine that Ross is the bartender and Sips is the (at least former) pub owner. The pub is both non-human/magical and human customers. The last time Trott was here was in the 70s, and it is now present day.

cw: dudebros pestering for drinks, mention of drinking

bio-modification AU

Three shared this link in the Discord chat, of a house, and I said, “I like the orange accents, and the bedrooms. it looks like the kind of house in some sort of near-future scifi thing. with genetic enhancements. bioengineering animalistic traits and genes into humans. the Hats were talking about how sharks regrow teeth (and why isn’t that being studied in an application to science, srsly) so maybe: Sips and the Hats as scientists working for this lab.”

cw: body modification; medical/scientific experimentation; creepy scifi, animal lab usage?; sex, drugs, mention of organs

Sweet Temptations – ghostofgatsby

Sips’ Sundaes was an ice cream parlor not-so-secretly for supernatural and human customers both. So far, Sips had yet to actually make anything vampires specifically could enjoy, but humans kept coming back without complaint. Trott liked his job serving customers while Sips worked in the cold storage room mixing new flavors. The time Trott got to spend chatting with the cute postal delivery guy was also a nice bonus.
