aradia killed by vriska

Aradia rides out Vriska’s fuckery so well. one of Vriska’s main manipulation tactics is to make her victim feel like the two of them are a team, just them against the world. she did this to Terezi, Tavros, John, and to a lesser extent Equius and Kanaya. But Aradia just shuts that shit down immediately. 

anonymous asked:

why is vriska queued hol y shit shes a child and a lesbian who grew up being abused + traumatized in part by a character whos coded/implied to be a pedophile and lashes out as a result of that like this is all established in canon and she openly shows remorse for her actions in canon as well. but like. shes pretty fuckign clearly an abuse victim who lashes out as a result of her trauma

vriska is a canon abuser who traumatizes tavros to the point where his self esteem is destroyed, then later kills him. She blinds Terezi and makes Sollux kill Aradia. Retcon vriska doesn’t show remorse for a lot of her actions, not to mention she continuously bullied jake and called him things like “joke”….. like… yes she is a victim but like.. being a victim doesnt rlly prevent someone from being an abuser either…?

Man, I sure do LOVE the fact that everyone always forgets that Doc Scratch openly and by his own admission manipulated Vriska into killing Aradia and is implied to have done the same to get her to make Tavros run off that cliff (fucking comparing manipulating her to sicking a swarm of insects on someone even) probably meaning that without his intervention odds are Vriska wouldn’t have done either of those things but noooo let’s keep pretending that everything she did or has ever done that was bad is just out of malice, on a whim because that is such a good and interesting characterization that takes into account all the complicated nuances of her character!!!!!!

  • Gamzee: *neglected as a child because of his lusus's limitation to the sea*

  • Fandom: see she's not bad she's great

thinking about Make Her Pay, and how terezi was just… waiting, on prospit,for vriska to wake up so she could slap her…

why? did she know aradia was going to kill vriska? did she know when? was it a coincidence? does she always do this? how long did she stand there staring at sleeping vriska waiting for the perfect opportunity to slap a 8itch? was it worth it? (it was worth it)
