Red Dead Virgo ([=RDV=]) is at its core an [[AlternateUniverseFic Alternate Universe]] WhatIf fic, asking "WhatIf the trolls all had a different blood color than they do in canon?" The focus is on a Red Kanaya, who decided she simply couldn't hide her "mutant" blood color from her friends. [[BreakTheCutie This turns out to be]] [[CaptainObvious a bad thing.]] However, the story jumps around a lot to several other trolls, all with different blood colors (shifted down five places from canon[[note]]Somewhat - since the canonical order is actually the same as the zodiac, only Kanaya, Gamzee, Eridan, Feferi and Nepeta were shuffled down five. Terezi, Vriska and Equius were shuffled down six, Aradia, Tavros and Sollux four, all while keeping the zodiac order... and yet Karkat was extremely displaced and shuffled down eight, to go after Feferi and before Aradia.[[/note]]), and more importantly different upbringings. The characters are somehow [[InSpiteOfANail similar to the way they were in canon]]...and yet [[ForWantOfANail at the same time they aren't]]. A part of what makes the story work is the contrast between these AlternateUniverse characters and their canon counterparts, and how much about them was nature and how much was nurture. This extends to most (pretty much all) of the relationships as well. Even SGRUB is a bit different, while remaining the same.

* DownerEnding: So very, very much, though it may also cross over to BittersweetEnding territory depending on how you interpret it. Could possibly also count as a SuddenDownerEnding.

* ResignedToTheCall: This version of SGRUB forces some of the trolls out of their comfort zones. Vriska doesn't think she's cut out to be [[spoiler:a God Tier KnightInShiningArmor]] since she was a humble stuttering farmgirl all her life. Equius is horrified that he has both a lofty title (Prince of Space) and [[spoiler:the ''huge'' responsibility of ''creating the new universe'']] since he was a servile bootlicker before the game started. Eridan really doesn't like being the Mage of Time since dealing with TimeTravel is so messed up. Aradia was an aloof and antisocial [[SmartGuy smart girl]] before the game so she isn't happy that her new role is to be TheEmpath. Nonetheless, all of them try their best to fulfill their roles since they have no other choice.
