8REAKING F8 - Homestuck Fanfic - Chapter 22

The crew of the Fool’s Gam8it arrives in Southend, a wild and wily part of Alternia, in search of shop where Aranea can present Porrim and Felida with a fitting kismesissitude gift: tattoos.  Mindfang discovers the artist seems rather familiar but she can’t quite put a finger on why…

Those of you who have read my previous works, “Nobody Lives Forever” in particular, are going to have some theories concerning said tattoo artist.  I’m going to leave it to you to figure it out.  Those of you who haven’t might want to visit that story and see how Mindfang was involved with another of the known Ancestors… it might make the next chapters that much more enjoyable (or as my editor, Mercale, would say, heartbreaking).

Don’t have the soundtrack ready for this Act yet, but for the opening sequence, check out Zero 7’s “Look Up” for the start of it while you’re waiting.
