Ever notice how Gamzee and Eridan are never treated with respect? Vriska gets a full turn around, ARquius and Davepeta get to be happy, Tavros becomes a badass, and everyone gets to be happy.
Eridan never gets a recovery and the only time we get to see him smile was just some stupid joke. Literally the only time he has been happy was for a dumb joke.
Gamzee gets locked up in the fridge for who knows how long and never gets out. Not to mention he never gets to state his case.
I am seriously not happy with how they have been handled as characters.
It’s just unfair.
To go with that, how come we never get to see Feferi again??? That’s just not cool.
honestly homestuck is getting nigh unreadable by this point. it sucks that so many characters are getting their moments in the sun and then the one i care about is just dead and that’s it. i guess he just “deserved” to die and that’s it, huh? no redemption arc for eridan? cool, great.
kinda a random question but what are your thoughts on characters being brought back?? can you tell us what you would think of each character being brought back as a sprite?? (what you would think of nepetasprite, feferisprite, eridansprite, etc.)
Oh gosh. This actually sounds like an urgent question for some reason, so I will try to answer this to the best of my ability and it’s okay that it’s kind of random. It’s randomly relevant at this point anyway. I’m sorry if my answers might sound half-assed because I’m actually kind of tired right now but your question made it seem like you really wanted to know. I also might get confused because I would have to figure out what actually did happen to the currently dead characters in the fridge and what time line they are from. I’m glad I drink coffee before I go to sleep sometimes.
Alright, so we’ll start off with Nepetasprite. She was the precious cinnamon roll that was killed before we really got to know her. Oh dear Nepeta, we hardly knew ye. Yet, I almost think we know a lot of what we need to know about her. She has a certain set of interests that she’s interested in and I kind of like it just like that. The only thing that’s pretty unresolved right now is her and Karkat. Karkat probably won’t ever go for her because he hasn’t really ever liked her. She still needs to realize this and stop obsessing over him. It is honestly quite sad because now we know because of the very fucking blunt Jasperosesprite^2 that she uses the shipping wall to cope with her loneliness. I think if she was brought back now she might have a sense of inclusion, but I don’t know if that’s enough right now? She probably can’t even interact with her moirail because AR has successfully turned Equius into a more classist asshole than before. I honestly think that might really hurt her because of how she tried to avenge his death. If they were to interact right now, she would just become more lonely and that is definitely not needed at this point. However, I am interested in this little tidbit that Hussie managed to slip in
And then to add on to that
Hmmmmmmmm, I don’t think that’s a coincidence but it’s all speculation at this point. I look forward to that IF Nepeta is the one to be brought back. Obviously with the whole Jasprosesprite^2 being mischievous and Terezi having already stated that it will bring Nepeta back it is more than likely to happen I guess. I don’t know if I want her to be brought back right now though maybe later if that’s even possible.
On to Feferisprite. I guess the other version of Feferi and Eridan in the dream bubbles were permanently killed by LE just to establish the timeline we are in right now. If she came back, I think the main thing that I would look forward to is if she could maybe ascend to god tier somehow. Her powers are very useful with having the ability to heal and save spirits in dream bubbles. Plus, her “prophecy” is to unite the two races right? Maybe that time is now. I don’t really know if it is though, so I don’t think it’s the right time for her to come back. I’m also interested in how Sollux would react but that’s like a side quest right now and it doesn’t really interest me personally. It probably interests some shippers out there though so that could be fun for other people.
Finally, Eridansprite. Hehehe, this one is kind of interesting I think. I actually really want to see more development from this character. I mean he goes on his nihilistic rampage and then gets sawed in half by Kanaya and that’s basically all we got besides the dream bubbles. He has shown his remorse in the dream bubbles but more than that I want to know if he has come to fully accept his title! At this point, I think it would actually be pretty important because he is a hope aspect that destroyed “hope” AKA the Matriorb. Now, Kanaya is trying to make another universe and stuff with Karkat which is pretty fucking important. And THEN, you have new character interaction possibilities one of many would be Roxy. Roxy has been trying to make the Matriorb unsuccessfully and it’s still a very crucially plot-device at this point. I think it would be kind of cool if Eridan could help her out and they can bond over magic and science. I mean Kanaya could do this but I just think Eridan would be a much more interesting with the whole symbolism thing. Hope rebuilding hope if you would. Which, I mean, it’s really up to Hussie if he even wants hope to even be a thing lol. Does that even fit into the mythological role of a Prince of Hope? Probably not, so I don’t know how it would work but I can dream. If nothing else, he has interacted with a fridge before and he’s the only troll in the fridge to have done so in the comic.
I just like really convoluted and obscure call backs and things like that.
MOST OF ALL THOUGH. IF ANYONE OPENS THE FUCKING FRIDGE, GAMZEE IS GOING TO GET OUT. AND YOU KNOW WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN?
I AM NOT PREPARED.
IF HE SEES TAVROS THOUGH, HIS MAIN BRO/POSSIBLE LOVE INTEREST, AS A SPRITE, HOW IS HE GOING TO REACT ESPECIALLY IN HIS PROBABLY MESSED UP STATE? THE LAST TIME GAMZEE SAW TAVROS WAS WHEN HE WAS ON A RAMPAGE AND HE WASN’T EVEN THE ONE TO KILL TAVROS. WOULD HE HAVE KILLED TAVROS IF TAVROS WAS ALIVE? TAVROS DOESN’T EVEN KNOW ABOUT GAMZEE’S MURDER RAMAPGE. WILL HE EVER FIND OUT? WHAT WERE THE SLOPPY MAKEOUTS ABOUT? WERE THEY TO REVIVE HIM? WERE THEY TO BE SUPER FUCKING GROSS? DO YOU THINK THAT GAMZEE AND TAVROSPRITE WILL TOUCH? IF SO, THEY WILL PROBABLY FUSE AND I DON’T EVEN WANT TO BEGIN THINKING ABOUT WHAT A WEIRD SITUATION THAT WOULD BE. I WANT ALL OF THESE QUESTIONS TO BE ANSWERED.
AND THEN ON TOP OF ALL THAT SHIT, WE HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THE OTHER KERNELSPRITE BEING PROTOTYPED TWICE, RIGHT? IT’S JUST TOO MUCH. SO MANY AWFUL COMBINATIONS. I MEAN FEFETA WAS COOL AND ALL. I JUST DON’T KNOW. I WANT ERIDAN BACK??? WTF??? WHY???
JASPROSESPRITE^2 IS FUCKING ANNOYING FOR EVEN BRINGING THIS WHOLE FRIDGE TOPIC UP IN THE FIRST PLACE. IN CONCLUSION, FUCK JASPROSPRITE^2. DON’T OPEN THE FUCKING FRIDGE. AT LEAST GET THROUGH THE FIGHT FIRST. THERE IS JUST TOO MUCH THAT’S ABOUT TO GO DOWN.
I hope that answered your question, anon. You have a nice day now. Thanks for the ask too. It’s kind of fun to think about these things once in a while. ^u^
