cool-eridan

as much as i despise Vriska there’s one great thing about her and just homestuck in general:

she literally destroys the glasses people are nerds trope

i know at this point it’s pretty much been ripped to shreds because it’s 2016 but back in 2012 or so when i was reading homestuck i was like 

wow, wow look at these glasses kids not being complete computer smart genius nerds or whatever i can relate

like john being bad at coding? that was me

vriska feeling super self important and being an ass? that was me

not me was her being a bitch but honestly i hated her so much but liked her confidence

confident people w/ glasses are great

ofc it’s 2016 and one in every four people have glasses so y’know dime a dozen

but just memories and also appreciation for glasses people i guess? wait that makes me sound narcissistic

okay appreciation for characters with glasses that are confident and ready to live life

angel-jade-draws  asked:

What made you like smol/short Eridan? (I actually like Eridan being small while the others are standing tall after puberty lol)

Hmmm good question! It has to do with a lot of things actually, mostly headcanon related.

Y’see, I kinda headcanon the age-blood hemospectrum stuff, so as you get older, the slower your mature and seadwellers almost stop altogether in their late twenties. 

But during sburb all trolls are still pretty young so they’re roughly equal. But that changes a bit later when the lower bloods start to molt and skyrocket.

The highbloods and seadwellers are left a bit irked at their friends in their late early twenties just managing to gain muscle and height over them. As well as their psychokinetic powers, it seems like an unfair trade off but in reality, they live longer so it kind of evens out. 

I also headcanon the lower on the spectrum, the more probability you have stronger mental powers. Vriska has hers but its manipulation of mind not actual physical lifting of objects. Hence lowerbloods tend to have the more physically demanding jobs.

But anyhoo! When everyone is in their physical young adult stages, the seadwellers are playing catch up in their teens, because of biology and all that. It would make sense for their adolescence to be extended given their entire life expectancy is.

But that’s just one part! (Sorry if I’m rambling at this point I get really excited about seadwellers heehee)

Keep reading

I’m going through this with all my soul, i hope this helps-
These are general lines for plot and character, for any other details just ask <3
Enjoy the stay!


Plot:
Eridan and Feferi are childhood friends and very quiet kids - school is almost their only interest - until their older siblings (Cronus for Eridan, Meenah for Feferi) decide to spice up their lives a little and make them join their gangs, T-Sharks and Pink Shell Ladies. With the beginning of the school year and of their new social experience as “cool kids”, Eridan and Feferi end up seeing each other less, especially since there’s no love lost between the two gangs they joined, but try to keep in touch as much as possible anyway.
A new year also means new experiences, and Eridan can’t help being curious about the group of punks (without a name, because they don’t care at all) he happens to see quite often in the corridors or around the halls - especially as concerns the led red/blue eyed one -, but Cronus is determined to keep his younger brother from starting any relationship with said kids in order for his group not to be associated with such kind.
Things change, though, when Cronus and Meenah end up getting in a slightly more serious fight than usual: it turns out there actually is a correlation between T-Sharks and the punks, which consists in them doing all the dirty work the gang of greasers hasn’t the guts or doesn’t want to do by themselves.
When Tavros is sent by Karkat, who knows Sollux from a while, to contact the gang of punks Eridan convinces him to bring him too; that’s how Sollux and him meet - even though they seem to have known each other for a while before, at least by sight, because of the swimming club they both attend.
From that moment on, they’ll have the chance to get to know each other better…if they menage to be left alone by Feferi every now and then, of course.

♓: Meenah is the strongest girl in all the gang, and ever if she is tinier than her little sister Feferi, she knows how to rule the school; always in fight with Cronus and no one knows why.

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. 

I can’t believe nobody has noticed this unreal easter egg in homestuck

all the first letters of every troll in the story all spell out “Homestuck”
Ho boy! It’s Eridan!

Oh, gee golly! Latula!

Man… Kanaya sure is cool!

Eridan! Again!

Sh! Gamzee is sleeping!

Tavros?! 

Ur rude! Like Vriska!

Caliborn. Fuck you, he’s a troll now.
