While I'm here...

A story my husband told me about his Trandoshan (lizardman / bounty hunter) in a Star Wars game. His character had broken into and searched an occupied house. He was about to leave, but then he had an idea.

Husband: “So, the owner of this place, he’s asleep on the couch?”

GM: “…yeah?”

Husband: “I want to interrogate him.”

Apparently the NPC in question wasn’t just sleeping, but passed out, drunk AND high. So when he woke up to a giant lizard making threats and asking questions, he not only answered them, but also volunteered the locations of every weapon in the house. So hubby left an arsenal richer.

Here's something to think on: Asgore noted that monsters need hope to survive. He never did quite say weather or not they'd die without it, but Sans does feel pretty goshdarn hopeless, doesn't he? Not to mention Asgore and Toriel's surprisingly low health pools compared to the power they are said to have.

OMG SENPAI???? WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN MY ASK BOXXXXXX *swoons*


R-regarding your question! I think everyone needs hope to survive, humans and monsters. So if you’re trying to refer to Sans’ 1 HP thing, I doubt that’s it.


Aside from that, in the game’s demo, HP was referred as Hit Points. That would be the number of points you need to deplete to take the monster down, and that’s more battle-oriented than anything else. I consider that canon, [since Hit Poodles and Horse Power are obviously in-game jokes], and not the actual HEALTH the monster might have. 

If not, the common definition of HP is still Health Points, and that’s unrelated to hope.


Another reason why I think HP does not stand for HoPe: You can raise the maximum amount of HP you have by sleeping. If you rest, your physical condition and your health get better. That HP increase would make sense if HP means Health Points. But it doesn’t make sense that sleeping would increase your hope.


Speaking of Asgore and Toriel. It’s obvious that they are Boss Monsters if you look at their stats, [80 AT - 80 DF] regardless of the HP they might have.

MARK IN MY HEART IS A SASAENG

it’s confirmed that mimh is still in fact a sasaeng n like i understand that she takes good photos but i don’t appreciate that kind of behaviour under any circumstance taking good pictures is not a good enough reason to excuse someone of such disgusting behaviour n even when it was ‘cleared’ that she wasn’t one idk why some thought it was okay to excuse her from being rude to jaehyun at a fan sign event n several other members on several other occasions
in an ideal world everyone would stop reposting her photos n stop supporting her bc that just encourages her behaviour

It just kind of hit me yesterday that Delphox has a really cool design and I went on drawing spree because damn, it’s so much fun! I love how the fur mimics a wizard’s robe, giving a fantastic flow to the design. Not to mention the contrasting elements, like big ears / small nose, wide ‘sleeves’ / small hands.

Hussie & Hiveswap

I saw a post yesterday talking about The Odd Gentlemen and how they, not only got away with some of the Kickstarter money, but that wasted Hussie’s time and it all ended with him losing a good chunk of the Fandom. I’d be adding this on top of that post but I was on mobile and I didn’t really feel like typing all this by tapping there, but…

EITHER WAY. I agree very much that the Gigapause was devastating to the Fandom as a whole, and everything was delayed way too much, however, the fatalist light in which this post was put really made me dislike its entire premise. They mentioned how Hiveswap would never have a fraction of the following it’d have had otherwise, and other pretty sad and pessimistic views on how Hussie might be doing. But I believe that’s not exactly the case.

First of all, bigger or smaller Fandom, Hussie loves his fans, but over that, he absolutely loves his work. There was an AMA about Hiveswap a while ago saying how Hussie had already spent all the Kickstarter money and the project was continuing being paid from his own pocket, that there had been such huge cliffs to push through in the making that it was a miracle he was still determined on finishing the game.

But this is Hussie we’re talking about. Homestuck, Hiveswap, in the way he’s always spoken about how the Fandom grew and became its own things, the playful teases to the Fans, the way he spoke about Act 7, he’s got passion. He’s absolutely in love with this project, and it’s very much passion driven. Kickstarter Money or not, Stolen or otherwise, taking 2 or 5 years, with him determined to push through, I don’t think it was ever a doubt the game would come to be sooner or later. Would ‘stubborn as a mule’ count as an equine pun befitting him? My point is, while it’s sad all he had to go through, and even if the game didn’t get as much following, this is Hussie we’re talking about. As long as we’re there to check it out when it comes out and (hopefully) manages to catch our attention and makes us invested in it, it’ll all have been worth it.

The other point that made me feel a bit off, however, was the way they spoke about how Hiveswap would now have none of the following it could’ve had. However, need I remind you about Undertale? Like, yeah it might seem almost like begging to a friend, or feeling hopeful, but Undertale blew up and is still kinda blowing up, Toby Fox made quite the masterpiece, and it’s very likely, with his involvement, the popularity of Undertale will directly affect Hiveswap’s popularity. For better or worse. At the very least, I wouldn’t be surprised if Toby Fox not only makes the game more popular, but actually brings more people to Homestuck.

Specially now that it’s over, and as Hussie said, reading it all down at your own pace knowing there’s no ‘upd8′s’ to wait for was almost the intended way to read it. It’s only now that Homestuck, as a complete story, is showcased at its best.
