Travelstuck all together.

Compiling this again.  (I need a break from lands, I’m sorry.)

People’s ages here will vary.  Some of it is because I think it’d be more interesting, others are because of needing to justify things like Karkat’s education level, Terezi’s position.  I’d be totally fine with wiggling things into better forms, I was just throwing this all together so people can find it.

John rides a modern Vespa, bright yellow and affectionately dubbed Casey, and zooms across southern California, where he’s going to school.  The wind all around him helps him relax.  During the summer, he treks up to Washington to see his family, but sometimes Nanna will scoot down to see him.

Rose’s mother is a jetsetter, leaving Rose at a boarding school, but as she has gotten older, Roxy has dragged Rose on vacation with her.  There’s a lot of commuting, and they don’t always get to sit together on the planes due to how often Roxy decides Rose is coming at the last minute.

Jade’s up north in Alaska/Canada, with her grandpa Jake involved in a field study up there.  She breeds dogs and is hoping to do the Iditarod at some point with her dogs Bec and Jack.

Dave’s into cars, as so is Dirk.  Think Pimp My Ride and Top Gear having a baby, with an overdose of irony and that’s probably what the Striders are doing.  Dirk does pizza delivery for a part time job.

Feferi’s mother runs a cruise liner, and Feferi grew up on one of those cruisers.  People there sort of consider her the princess and after all, she is probably the heiress…

Eridan’s dad is a retired wwhaler from Japan, who bears two very obvious scars on his face.  Still, he is one of Feferi’s mother’s business partners now.  Eridan (well, that’s his net handle) himself is a bit of an otaku and is friendly with Feferi over the internet.

Gamzee’s the most melancholy of the ideas to me.  I see him as a kid in a port city, a Navy brat with a dirty old goat of a father who doesn’t get much time to see his son.  He likes the grittier part of town and he is most likely as the one talking about what comes though the ports, the amazing pictures of the underbelly, that sort of thing. 

Equius runs a ranch.  Hands down.  Cowboy, possibly friends with the Striders, though I’d see him more likely in Montana, as an excuse for being close to my idea for Nepeta.

Vriska is a sk8rgiiiiiiiirl~  It’s mostly so she can escape her demanding mother, and she lives in Portland, Oregon.

Kanaya’s in Paris, Milan, New York, somewhere well-known in the fashion industry, hoping she can get into it.   Her mother runs a hotel that’s very popular with that sort of clientele.

Terezi’s a hang-gliding instructor, who trusts the feel of the wind to know how to fly.  It doesn’t stop people from being terrified of her and for her.

Nepeta’s a little different than you’d expect.  Her locomotion is on foot, sure, and she lives near Yellowstone, daughter of a park ranger.  She absolutely loves her mother’s job and intends to follow in her footsteps.

Karkat?  He’s a medical student in this universe, and of all things he could be?  He’s a crabby, part-Chinese Australian surfer from Christmas Island.  You can probably figure out why.  Him and John are the two main inspirations for this whole AU period, which is why I made the excuse of Karkat being in San Diego at the oncology center there, since there’s pretty good surf there as well.

Sollux’s a commercial bee keeper, trucking his hives across the USA.  Beep, beep, motherfucker.  Don’t ask me why, I just find the idea of him with an Optimus Prime like truck and red-and-blue shades to be hilarious.

Tavros, when he isn’t involved in some extremely stupid acts like the Running of the Bulls, likes hot-air ballooning.  (Fly, Pupa, flyyyyyyyy!)

Last but not least, Aradia’s a bit of a climber.  She’s with her parents in the Andes a lot, with them studying ruins, but her budding passion for rock-climbing might drive her other places.

zilleniose:

… I want to do a Johnkat revival project but I don’t think I could commit to anything that big and expect to be responsible with it.

It just feels like there is so little Johnkat now compared to the past, and I miss it. ;~;

If it makes you feel better, um, I’ve been trying to work up the nerve to write something that’s John and human Karkat on a yellow scooter… ._.  Just after exams and papers are done and I have time.

More Travelstuck

Thanks to Kilehye’s livestream, some ideas came up.

Terezi is a hang-gliding instructor, god help us all.  And possibly still blind.  She’s damn good, but people are terrified.

And if we’re going for fantasy elements, well… Gamzee’s dad is a battleship. Literally.  If not, he just pretends his dad is the ship.

As for Sollux… this is best summarized by the log.

AstraKiseki: Sollux’s still on the ‘admin for a website and dealing with GPSes, but…
AstraKiseki: If Tezeri’s hang-gliding, maybe he’s the bicycle.
Evei: Bee keeper
bonerstuck: two pad ddr master
AstraKiseki: Evei, trying to keep with the travel stuff.
Evei: Sorry, I just think of bees every time he pops up.
AstraKiseki: Heheh.
Evei: Haha
jabberwockyx: I dunno, the only travel-related thing I could see him do him would be, like, flying business class to foreign countries to work on technology stuff
Evei: Yeah
jabberwockyx: …him do him. i can english good.
catsSchrodinger: xD
Evei: Yeah, I can’t really think of anything else
AstraKiseki: Dammit internet.
AstraKiseki: Honestly, I’ll probably keep him with working with GPSs.
bonerstuck: wait
bonerstuck: There exist commercial beekeepers
bonerstuck: Who go around the country with truckloads of beehives
AstraKiseki: …
AstraKiseki: Trucker.
bonerstuck: To help pollinate crops
jabberwockyx: jfdkljslkfs;fsd trucker sollux ahahaha
AstraKiseki: ***.  Yes.

Best trucker ever.  Beep beep motherfucker.

More Travelstuck crap!

The reason why this whole idea came up in my head was pretty simple.  John, on his bright yellow Vespa, offering a helmet to Karkat to go for a ride.

But how to explain them meeting?  Well…

So, I said it before, the idea of John living in San Diego, since the weather there is almost always fantastic for riding.  It’s also pretty decent for surfing and has a cancer center…  So an Australian Karkat studying to be an oncologist and at the same school as John couldwork.

Maybe I’ll write it.  But that’s for spring break.

Travelstuck Continued

Lemon-jar helped with some ideas!

Vriska’s a sk8rgiiiiiiiirl, enjoying extreme sports and sometimes going out to board across town so she can avoid her mother.  Takes a lot of chances, and she knows a lot of shortcuts in her area.  Maybe in Portland, Oregon, since that is apparently a Skateboard Capital? I don’t know much about this stuff.

Aradia?  She’s up in South America, in the Andes.  Her parents are studying the Incas and their empire, and she likes to climb quite a lot.

Terezi…  Well, bicycles are about balance, so maybe that? Cue the jokes of what she is in this universe.  It’s also a possible extreme sport, if one wants her to come at odds with Vriska.  I know it’s weak. 

Sollux, I assume, is a homebody.  He is the admin of the forum everyone has met on, and likes dealing with GPS units.  Brings in computers and stuff, but I really can’t see him doing a lot of traveling unless it’s him watching and reading.

An adjustment for Tavros, when he isn’t risking himself running with the bulls, probably loves hot air ballooning. Fly, Pupa, fly~

Anyone have other ideas?
