A Little Apritello Thought

Before The Power Inside Her aired I made a post about how Donnie is always reaching out to April. He offers her his hand again and again throughout the series. Not surprisingly, we see April almost take his hand over and over. But nearly every time, it’s not the right time. For example:

April reaches up to accept his help and Donnie is smacked in the face by nun-chucks.

They’re so close! But their fingers brush and April plummets into a vat of mutagen.

Donnie can’t reach her with his hand. I don’t think this was an accident. It seems that, by this point, the writers had already decided that Donnie couldn’t take April’s hand until the right moment.

And we all know what happens here. But, once again, here he is… reaching out to help her.

So, my theory still stands. When Apritello becomes official, it will be when they take one another by the hand. It will likely be a case of Donnie extending his hand to April, but what I wouldn’t give to see her finally reach out to him.

Either way, I really hope this show ends with the two of them hand-in-hand.

Kevin is asked about regrets in late 2012, just after Generico signed with the WWE, and well before he knew he would he heading there too.  His face as he pauses–not to think of the answer, he knows the answer–but to decide whether he’s willing to share it.  

not to be a hipster but homestuck was better when there wasnt any welovefine and hot topic and kickstarter. when it was just a man and his computer, and a couple great collaborators, and your ass was keeping a sharp eye on the minuscule god tier hoodie restocks to snag one before they inevitably sold out again. I miss homestuck before hussie took year long breaks and i miss topatoco and i miss the homestuck store and i hate sifting through 8 miles of fanart disproportionately slapped on t-shirts for actual merch that doesnt bring me the same sense of excitement that it used to. it only brings resentment that if i buy something welovefine is going to enter me in a giveaway for squiggle lines drawn by hussie. which is not that funny? that would have probably made me laugh in 2012. but the thing is that you can shit on your fandom all you want when you’re providing good quality content. youre an aloof, eccentric creator. but when we’re all waiting on a game we backed years ago and was promised years ago and was promised for REALSIES months ago, when you’ve cut off all interaction on twitter, destroyed your own forums, and left the one tech guy in charge of repairing the forum to be the SOLE SPOKESPERSON for the state of your company, im not??? going to laugh when you’re like “hey guys enter a contest to win squiggly lines drawn by me!!” 

especially when the incentive to obtain more entries for that “””GRAND PRIZE””” is to buy things from welovefine, to link as many social media accounts as you can, to beg your friends to do the same, to make daily homestuck posts on instagram and then let their system confirm it like a goddamn receipt so it can spit out more entries for your stupid squiggle lines. is it so much work to offer a genuine commission? it’s all so cynical and commercialized which is??? honestly kinda shitty considering how much homestuck riffs on that culture??? 

and at the end of it all homestuck social media (what’s left of it anyway lol) has the nerve to constantly be like “we’re all still stuck here forever guys, right guys? right? right? ….right?” while we all kind of stare at them like a dad trying to use a meme, a meme he fucking CREATED and somehow destroyed. 

Homestuck is truly the ultimate tragedy, the epitome of a great rise and a greater fall, but I’m still waiting on my catharsis and my copy of fucking Hiveswap.
