An old request! Based on a fanfic based on a song based on a webcomic. :B Also inspired a lot by District 9.
The synopsis of the idea, from the requester: “That was the basic gist though: “Darkened”, based on the now-removed song of the same name from Volume 5; in which Karkat decides he’s the most worthless excuse for a leader ever and exiles himself to the wasteland, and the Alternian sun burns him to a rather familiar crisp, in the form of Spades Slick. He makes Midnight City out of pure want-to and makes all the bad shit….. hapen.”
