People are throwing away their WOW tickets…(an event that supports women of the world and their feminist visions and ideals) all because Gillian Anderson isn’t dating who they want to and instead dating a man who is being honored (amongst his other awards and accomplishments) at BFI dinner for his achievements and success in screenplay writing…?
I’m sorry this is so embarrassingly late. But I love your comics and art so much. You spend so much time devoting to the Zelgan fandom. For me, personally, reading A Tale of Two Rulers has helped me through two of the most difficult years of my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

It always happens in the snow.
This was inspired by chapter one of Salt Sanford’sElephants, and made for the RvB Big Bang! I can’t help but be extra; you inspire drama. Below, are the individual layers for your viewing pleasure! @littlefists
i’m reading some nepeta logs for the sake of a fic from her pov & i have the feeling there’s various patterns i can’t make sense of
in her first conversation (w/ karkat) she’s extremely acquiescent, in her second (w/ equius) she’s constantly on the attack, in the one w/ vriska on the meteor she mostly just seems disappointed. one of my friends (ash) said that one of the best ways to hurt vriska | piss her off is by ignoring/rejecting her (which is true given the whole aravris dynamic, anyway,)
which makes me wonder what the triggers & methods of nepeta’s offensive disposition (if it can be called that) are, if any. the equius thing makes her look much more calculating than she ever does in fanon — she very much tried to stall him telling her not to go on the other team — but maybe she actually does have a combination of the calculation to try & get what she wants + the sentimentality to not do so wantonly (while it could be said most trolls like either | both)
the karkat situation is sort of obvious although in the light of her moirallegiance w/ equius: “
If not you, then who? Everyone has an important job to do.” nepeta is possibly one of the characters in homestuck who’s not just altruistic, but self-sacrificing/with a poor grasp of boundaries — potentially expressed otherwise, but naturally never in a horrible manner like gamzee — w/ which we can then maybe also explain the vriska situation? she certainly tried to gently coax vriska out of it until she’d evidently ran out of options — | rather, when vriska had run out of sonas — & only then did she say “maybe let’s not roleplay at all.” (which was naturally enough for vriska who’s hypersensitive to such a message anyway)
in the equius conversation she’s fucking amazing though, goddamn.
AC: :33 < nooo, thats you
AC: :33 < everyone knows youre a weirdo and a cr33p!
AC: :33 < thats why youre lucky to have me to k33p an eye on you
AC: :33 < no one else can stand you!
i suppose i’m just wondering about what aggressive dialogue might look like if she’s actually hurt/scared/enraged, if anything. input would be welcome if anyone has anything
anyway the reason why i’m thinking about all of this is fucking horrible & will be released somewhere in the weeks to come, probably
“If you could order a crime as one orders a dinner, what would you choose?”
“A very simple crime. A crime with no complications. A crime of quiet domestic life… very unimpassioned — very intime… Supposing, that four people sit down to play bridge and one, the odd man out, sits in a chair by the fire. At the end of the evening the man by the fire is found dead. One of the four, while he is dummy, has gone over and killed him, and intent on the play of the hand, the other three have not noticed. Ah, there would be a crime for you! Which of the four was it?” - Agatha Christie, The ABC Murders
Carried to her coronation in an open chair, enormously overweight and virtually an invalid at thirty-seven, Anne could congratulate herself that she had survived to see this day. She had betrayed her father, cast doubts upon her brother’s [James Francis Edward’s] birth, quarreled with her sister, resented her brother-in-law, lied and dissimulated, ruined her health to provide an heir to the crown. Now she had no children and ignored her brother’s right, despite promises made to her father. But she had the crown.Maureen Waller
People always talk about the main 4 being like a family unit but i think its a lot cuter to think of them as well… a group of teenagers .. the type where there are really young kids but everything is still natural and they think of each other as equals
