5, 8, 15! :D
5. Your favorite costume to wear. Hhhhammy: Karkat! Gothichamlet: Kankri in all iterations because reasons. We both clearly have Candyblood problems.
Least favorite is an uncomfortable Elizabethan gown that I can’t seem to find any pictures of boo.
8. Favorite prop: 2x3 pointy jams trident!
15. Pick one of your friends and tell us your favorite cosplay of theirs and why. VIOLET WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS. Okay. I’m making a list:
Thevvioletprince: Eridan because I can’t deal with the amazing Eridan faces you make.
Vantasss: Genderbend Terezi because it’s the cutest thing in the universe.
Ceriene: Spinnerette Mindfang because it’s ridiculously well-constructed.
Vantasticmess: The Signless because I have an Ancestor feelings problem.
Knightarcadia: The Psiioniic because see above.
Vintage-Aerith: The Dolorosa because also see above.
Snowchildhero: Potterstuck!Aranea because Potterstuck is the greatest.
Saccharinesylph: Beforus!Feferi because I really like well-done AU designs!
Gomugomugodhead: Karkat because that cosplay is flawless and I had an awesome time at our Katsu shoot.
Labyrinth1n3: Human Applejack obviously!
Jaimons-le-bon-vin: Purple dress Roxy because I can’t believe that’s her first cosplay.
Olds on the bus, recognizing your fandom
This morning I woke up really early and had a weirdly surreal text conversation with the twin about where Pokémon mystery dungeon put save files (DLC on the system, game data on the card, like I told her) which resulted in us agreeing to meet up at the hipster and depressing Starbucks by Powell’s for her to try her theory out on my 3DS before I met up with Tay later on.
I guess I got the right bus for all the kids going to the alternative school on Burnside because there was a Homestuck standing near me. Twitter (well okay I was like VIKKI PLEASE PLAY NAME THE HOMESTUCK FOR YOUR LOSER NEESAN but details) tells me it was John and he should put the bunny back, but I didn’t like to ask the Homestuck because
HI AN OLD HAS RECOGNIZED YOUR FANDOM ON THE BUS.
ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCK: CREEPER.
It was really cute tho! I’m no judge of Homestuck cosplays but I thought it looked nice.
wh-what do you like to RP? like, characters/pairings/plots/etc?
Hrm. I tend to play Karkat, Dave, Bro!Dirk and Eridan, and occasionally Kanaya. I pair just about anyone as long as there’s chemistry (Minus Vriska and Caliborn, since they both tend to upset me unless they’re way ooc)
Plot wise, I like antagonism and wariness to coming to an understanding, power differentials that slowly even out, breaking someone and putting the pieces back together, and all hell breaks loose plots.
In the last bit I’ve played:
A DemonSummoner AU (based from Asukaskerian’s fic) Where Dirk binds Karkat half by accident and has to deal with settling a Demon Incarnate in his life and work as a summoner for the local police, which ends in Dirk in Hell after sacrificing himself to close the local Hellmouth Dirk/Karkat
A Tortallish Medieval AU where Dirk is a Knight and KK and Dave are Squires to a kingdom. Where Karkat is a mutant troll who can pass as human and has been working hard to become a knight despite the fact he’s from a hated enemy race, and Dirk becomes his training master and later discovers his secret. Dave/Karkat Dirk/KArkat
An Alternian world where the Signless succeeded and came to power with the Dolorosa, where after a few decades they realized that the Laws regarding mutations were for genetic reasons, as the Mother Grubs are unable to produce viable offspring when high mutations are in the slurry ( the revolution killed all the Drones). A thousand years later the Jadebloods rule a hemospectrum that peaks like a pyramid with them at the top and the world is split into the normal trolls and those who are culled- not killed but taken to work with and for the mothers and are not allowed to be contributers to mothers. Karkat gets ‘found’ as a mutant and has to adjust to living with the Jades underground. Kanaya/Karkat Karkat/Sollux
A Supernatural Demon Hunting universe where Sollux is a grumpy hunter looking to Avenge Aradian’s Death, Karkat’s the grubby street kid he picked up after watching him kill a ghoul with a fucking SILVER PLATED STEAK KNIFE NO (me might just be one quarter demonic and one quarter angelic and one half human…) and Eridan is one half Mermaid/Siren and Dualscar is one scary Mofo.
So yeah. I play a LOT of AU’s simply because the canon changes so constantly and having something more stable to work with is a bit more fun for me and my partner, but we’ve done a lot of Post-Sburb worlds as well. (Lots of Captain Ampora and Revolutionary Karkat)
Oh. And I don’t rp sex, for the most part. I get so bored of smut scenes that it is a fade to black get back to the plot and character building stuff 90% of the time. XD
You asked for it how awesome is Vikki
Allow me to tell you the long and short of it— Vikki is a compassionate and truly amazing person. Vikki is a person who dedicates herself so entirely to the people she loves. Even to a point of wearing herself down to the very minimum in order to do whatever she can for them. She becomes so whole heartily invested in whatever she is focused on, and is constantly balancing how her actions will affects others. Anytime I’ve seen her engaged in anything, it’s been with her utmost effort, all the while being kind to those around her. She’s a reliable and true friend who won’t judge you for your faults, but rather care for you for all the positives. She doesn’t take herself too seriously and just tells things as they are, and for that she has so much of my respect. It is my personal belief that kindness towards others will get you far, and Vikki is a prime example of this. She never ceases to amaze me with her kindness and dedication to those around her.
I am very fortunate to have her as a friend.
