Karkat X Reader
Okay before I really start this thing I just want to say something to these readers. So there will be mistakes and I would like those that catch them to tell me so I may fix them when I’m serious. I also want to try to make these insert reader things gender neutral so if I mess up TELL ME!! I also try not to mention Trolls as Trolls so the reader can choose on that. If you want to read it as human Trolls so be it.(Okay I need to stop ranting ) Lets Continue this! GO!
You turned not wanting to see his face. Running with your tears mixing with the rain you escaped his presence. You never believed in getting things perfect, at least not any more. Karkat was perfect, so you knew you wouldn’t have him. You would only be able to flirt that’s what you believed. He’d never feel the same for you, he didn’t feel how you felt for him towards anyone special. So why would he feel that way to a no body like you, he wouldn’t. It hurt that you were so close to being with him. You just fucked it up, you weren’t going to have him now. What did you just do? Why did you just do that?
You stopped your running looking around. You knew this street, it was the street that had the one place you wanted to be right now. There was a slow jazz café near by, the people there knew you too well for you to feel shame in going. You would go there every now and then to cheer up from what ever was depressing you. They all knew you by name, and you knew most of them as well. They also knew how you felt about this day, so they most likely expected you to come by. You walked in hearing the jazz fill the café, you were taken letting the jazz fill you with more broken hearts. For some reason the depression in jazz just helped when mixed with your depression. The beautiful music started to help, the understanding behind it was enough to make you smile.
You found an empty seat and a few heads turned giving you a sympathetic smile. A few came by to sit with you starting conversations with them. They asked why your eyes were red and you seemed a bit more down than usual when visiting. You tried explaining your situation to them, they listened so well, sometimes you wished the common faces here were your family. They only knew of one sure way to help you cope with your feelings. Get you to sing it out in Jazz.
A few of the visitors you knew convinced you to go up. You were introduced and your short story (HOLY SHIT I MADE A GOOD PUN) was explained to them. The band of the day listened trying to agree on a song to play as you vented free style. They quickly came to an agreement starting a song that just by the intro you knew was going to have you fighting back tears at the end. But knowing the way your emotions worked the only way to cheer up was to fall into a worse depression first.
~Scene Skip TO Karkat~
Karkat was caught deep in the rain, he was confused and pissed. Everything was running smoothly but then you just blocked him out pushing him back. You even looked like you wanted the kiss from him, so why the hell did you back out? He couldn’t figure out what was going on with you. You looked so caught in love one second then just switched out of it and accused him of faking it. How could you expect him to do that? He never would do that to you.
Karkat sighed finding little use in trying to figure out your minds way of working. Unless you explained to him he wouldn’t really understand your most complex emotions. He may be a RomCom watching sap but he still found you too complex. But that was one of the reasons he had feelings for you, it was just so confusing that he wanted to be woven into the complex creation of your life and mind. He still really wants to be able to know why exactly you backed out so quickly.
He looked around, he needed to find some place to hide from the rain. If he didn’t escape it soon he’d be slugging around like a water beast. That was the last thing he wanted after feeling so terrible. He stepped into a near by café and hung his sweater behind the chair he picked to sit in. A few looked at him strangely, probably for the fact that he was drenched. He got some black coffee to try calming his nerves, he took out his laptop checking who was on Trollian. He found Gamzee, that motherfucker was probably eating some pie but what could it hurt to vent at him.

Karkat sighed thinking for a moment. If he was going to apologize to ____ he’d have to fine ____ first. He got up from his seat starting out the door. The rain had lightened up but still wasn’t gone. He pulled the hood of his sweater over his head. He trudged down the street looking around for any sign of ____.
~Scene Skip TO ____~
You were panting finished singing your heart out. You rubbed your eyes trying to clear them of all the stray tears that found their way in. You look out to the crowd that was snapping their raised fingers. You were finally able to smile after that terrible outburst you had.
You got down from the stage receiving a few hugs and sympathetic smiles. You feel welcome, comforted, loved in a family way. If you knew of this place back when your heart was broken you probably wouldn’t have lost hope in Valentines day. You sit back down in the crowd as another down trotted soul goes up. You looked out the window and saw a figure outside in the rain, when you take the time to focus on the figure you see a very familiar side profile. Its Karkat, he was looking through every place he passed. You realized he was about to look through the window at you. Quickly with a blush growing on your face you turn away looking at the singer perform. You act natural so Karkat won’t think its weird.
You wish you could bring yourself to face him. You want to tell him sorry and that you want to try again at the romantic moment you two shared. Wait that would sound stupid, romantic moment? You’d sound like a love sick chump, maybe try having a relationship. Yeah that sounds a bit less stupid, that would be your choice of words if you’d bring yourself to try saying them to him. But then again how would you bring yourself to admit having feelings for him after that outburst of refusal.

Karkat looked in the window of the slow jazz café that ____ was in, of course he didn’t know you were in there. But when he turned his head to check he saw a figure sitting down that looked like you. He didn’t know you to be one to like Jazz music so he didn’t consider it to really be you. He kept walking trying to think of where you could have sought shelter. He sighed, the last thing he wanted was to lose his friendship with you over his stupid romantic feelings for you. In his RomComs the couple always shared a kiss once given the opportunity so why not with you. ‘THAT‘S RIGHT THIS ISN‘T A FUCKING MOVIE. WHY THE HELL WAS I COMPARING THIS TO A MOVIE?!’ Karkat thought to himself face palming, it wasn’t going to be east to win back ____’s trust or feelings but he would have to find some way to telling you.
