A Eulogy for all the Homestuck ships that didn't make it.
Sunk by a meme. Tragic.
Sunk by a violent stabbing, also Tragic.
JadeJohn and DaveRose:
Goddamn, Hussie pulled a George Lucas on us there. "You like that ship? Well they're related now, whoopsie!"
Well, you'll always have A03 at least.
The forgotten Beta ship. You were cute.
You were a thing apparently? Well the fanart was cute.
You'll always have the Shelby Cragg AU's at least.
I have so many sad and complicated feelings towards you. It's hard and nobody understands.
There was so much unexplored potential and too much offscreen development.
Never liked you, but you deserved better than a bunch of people throwing a fit over a t-shirt.
I'll miss the <3<, and your Sprite.
God remember that anon that really really really hated this ship? Remember the harassment and gore submissions? That shit was wild... and creepy. Don't do this over fictional relationships kids.
Never saw that one coming did we?
I will Remem8er You!
Confirmed? Sunk? Aw well, you had a good run.
"We coulda had it aaaaaaall"
A foot note in the backstory that could have been explored more.
Sunk offscreen no less! A true shame.
Retconned out of existence and the two don't even talk anymore. Ouch.
Fuck all of you this was cute.
Sigh. Rest in Peace Vriskan, may the shippers sing you to your grave.
Wow, that was an odd couple wasn't it?
tfw youve missed the prime years of homestuck (i got into this shit in 2014) and youre desperately comissioning and making and putting together cosplays for conventions, and making fanart, and coming up with outrageous fan theories, and rereading old fanfiction, clinging desperately to the idea that “maybe this post will bring them back” and “maybe the upcoming game will spark something and we can all party like its 2012-2013” and “please come back for the love of gOD I WASNT HERE AND IM NOT DONE Y E T”
