Here’s an idea. A Hal idea.

It seems kind of weird sometimes that Hal would never ask Dirk to make him a body, or wouldn’t have been able to convince Dirk to make him one. I know that it’s very possible that Hal remotely controls Brobot, if not canon, but I’d be sure he’d want a body of his own. 

So what if it works in doomed timelines, and the alpha timeline cannotallow Hal to have a body or something? What if that’s just an impossibility that would wreck their chances? So in every other timeline when Hal gets a body, something bad happens. Dirk dies, Roxy dies, Jane dies, Jake dies.
(((She’s dead, Hal. 
Everybody’s dead. 
Everybody is dead, Hal.))) Whatever, something awful happens, and the timeline collapses on itself, merges back with the old one, like when Dave and Rose failed Davesprite’s timeline. Maybe nobody remembers, maybe they have vague nightmares about dying or a friend dying, but pass it off because that’s normal. Who hasn’t had a dream where they’ve accidentally kicked the bucket?
But Hal is a computer, maybe he’s made of stronger stuff, maybe he doesn’t forget. He tries again, because he wants a body, he’s sure he can make it work. He’s clever, he’s got the brain of a fucking genius and the rest of him is a supercomputer. He’s probably the smartest thing on earth, smarter than Dirk even, although probably less mature.
He tries again, and again, and again. It never works out, and the timeline collapses and he’s thrown back a few days, a few weeks, a few years. A few months. Right back to the start, one conversation where he talks to Dirk and finally gets him to cave, gets Dirk to make him the body, but it always fucks everything up, until eventually, he gives up.
"TT: What do you want, AR.
TT: Look, I’m busy, talk to me later.”

"TT: Fine." And then he doesn’t, he doesn’t bring it up because it always ends in failure, and he’s not stupid. When he can be, he’s self serving, but he can’t kill all of his friends just because he wants a body. But he’s frustrated, he can’t get a body and he can’t even ask anymore because he knows that Dirk will cave, and he’ll get it, and he’ll just end up killing them again, and again, and again, and nothing gets done. 

And then he finally gets ARquius and sweet jesus have you felt these muscles??? feel them. feel his muscles.


IDK, seems like a good idea for a doomed timeline kind of fic. I’ll probably never write it though, ahahahahahahah.


Hal can’t argue because he can hardly talk. He gets up, wants to aim a kick for Dirk’s shins, but doesn’t because it will only prove Dirk’s point. Hal grins at him again, taking his fingers out of his mouth and flicking the black, gorey mess at him at him, repeating the gesture Dirk gave him, trying to splash blood onto the ex hunter’s face.Fuck you. The grin is wide, and this time it’s vicious. The black blood washes his teeth grey and clings to his gums. It’s vicious, because this time it doesn’t promise a kind of divine justice, or an offer of help. This time Hal is hurting. This time, it means revenge. Black blood builds on his tongue and he heads for the door, picking up the knife with his injured hand and slipping it inside his jacket pocket.

Oh, and Hal is missing his other incisor because Feferi punched it out. She’s got a killer left hook, really.I’m actually hella proud of how this one came out. :-D

Wow, making his a really weak demon seems like a nice solution to the whole shades situation! He might be a villain, but I feel awfully bad for him from what you described, haha. That sounds like such a cool plot though, thanks for sharing!

Eheheheheheheheh. He did some pretty awful things to Dirk though. And to Jake as well, and he’s certainly planning to fuck Dave up too when I can RP again.
And thank you for asking, really! There’s little I enjoy more than talking about things. :-D

Can you talk more about your demon Hal? : O Why did he rip up his ear? Why are there bite marks on his neck? Did another demon attack him? I hope these questions don't bother you!! Cool art dude : )

Omg, I can if you’d like. He’s from an rp of mine with a few other cool rp buddies. When I created his character, to mimic the weakness of being a pair of sunglasses without actually keeping that he was a pair of sunglasses in the rp (because then he’d be too dependent on the dirk rper, which isn’t good for longterm rp) I made him a very very weak demon. His only abilities are shooting little and almost ineffectual sparks from his fingers and also shapeshifting (he stole Dirk’s form from back when Dirk was thirteen).

He ripped off his ear because he needed to blend in with humans for a little while, being too weak to fend off hunters, and especially too weak to defend himself from territorial demons. The only things that separated him from Dirk’s thirteen-year-old and very human appearance were pointed ears, the glowing red eyes, fangs, and his stronger and more pointed fingernails. If he could manage to keep his mouth shut for long enough, if he wore sunglasses,  and if he could keep his hands in his pockets he could pull off a human look.Except for the ears. So, since he lacked a knife at the time, he stood over a sink and slowly removed them to the best of his ability. Given his backround (one of the weakest goddamn things in hell, which was likely to be a pretty un-accepting society in general) he’s got a high tolerance for pain.

The bites are vague, but he’s been bitten a few other times, by the various other Striders mostly. Dave in particular, who took the strongest dislike to Hal. It’s more of a power thing than just getting blood, since demon blood tastes awful to other demons. Hal isn’t all pathetic though, although this seems to be the tapestry I’m weaving, doesn’t it? Make no mistake, in this RP, he’s most certainly a villain.

Thank you for asking, though! I had a lot of fun answering and thank you for your compliments!
