thinkin bout the fact that Homestuck is a creation myth that celebrates LGBT people and presents mortal effort as the ultimate divine force, and what a sharp counterpoint that presents to like every other creation myth out there, like say Genesis. The world isnt a gift from above handed from God, but something we create for ourselves. And LGBT people aren't an abberation from the base model of humanity but simply normal people who existed at the beginning. Homestuck is good thanks

Yesss. Sometimes I’m like, huh. I like Homestuck? And then I remember that this long and epic and entertaining read, which had a Huge follower base, ended with so much positive LGBT rep. It really didn’t have to; anyone who accuses that these relationships are pandering has no idea what they’re talking about. I certainly don’t think the fanbase would have diminished any to have had Rose end up with John, but instead Rose ended up with a girl. Dave cool-guy Strider ended up with a boy. His cool brother, gay. Roxy dreamboat cool-girl, wlw. That’s not even all of it; I have good reason to like Homestuck.

Guess what tonight is!

I had this in my drafts for quite a while but I think tonight would be the perfect time to post it.

Et tu, Hussie? On Spades Slick & Bec Noir.
(Plus, Patreon announcement!)
By optimisticDuelist

Here’s my next essay on Homestuck! 

In this piece, we talk about why Spades Slick isn’t an anti-hero or sympathetic in any way, Slickpaint was never canon, and Bec Noir surviving made perfect sense–both from a thematic and a practical writing standpoint. 

I am also pleased to announce I am going on Patreon. I am beginning a video essay series on Homestuck aiming to render it understandable and accessible to newcomers, and old fans will likely get a lot out of it, too. 

You can watch the first video here and see the post for my Patreon pitch here.
I hope you enjoy it, and if you do, I hope you decide to come along for the ride.

See you around!
