Edited Repost- Homestuck Shipping Calculation

By the assumed count of 235 characters- not counting imps, ogres, the likes, and summing the Circle of Horrorterrors to one, as their definite number is undefined. Not to mention implied characters in existence  still not counted as we have not bee introduced to them or they are unimportant to the plot. Also in use of the standard, expected count of participants in each relationship. 

Found using Combination and Possible Outcome. (online comb. calculator used)


Auspice alone earned most number of possible ships at 2,190,670 possible auspistices.

The following three quadrants each are standard pairing ships, so commonly, only 2 participants. There are 27,730 possible ships for each quadrant, and all sum up to have 173, 190 ships not counting auspistism .

The count for the original four quadrants, again, not counting alt. timelines and assuming character count of 235, is *drum roll*

2, 217,930



Okay, so for the charms, my easiest approach was first understanding how the combos could be accounted for through a visual. 

Now, using combination (restricting repeat, as it wouldn't make sense to have a combo of the same charm repeating. It’d defeat the purpose of combos), it has a mid point in which it begins reflecting.

1 charm - 9 possible

2 charm combo- 36 possible

3 charm combo- 84 possible

4 charm combo- 126 possible

5 charm combo- 126 possible

6 charm combo- 84 possible

7 charm combo- 36 possible

8 charm combo- 9 possible

9 charm combo- 1 possible

If you look at the 3x3 box, you will understand how it reaches a loop when you can only have one combination of 9 charms and vice versa. 

So using “possible outcome”, the simplest way to deal with this, we have a total of 511 different charm combos for each possible 2-way pairing (27730) 

511 * 27730

14,170,030 charm ships

We have a grand total of 14,170,030 charm ships possible.

    Although, you have to consider this is under the assumption that they’re strictly paired charm, unlike auspice, which racked up the most numbers.


    This leads to the sum of both Charm and Quadrant ships under standard participant number and assumption, at character count 235, to be….

    *drum roll*

    16,387,960 ships

    *~NOT COUNTING the thousands upon thousand of alt. timelines and dead.~*


    I just wanna say something

    If we date and get serious, there are a few things I would like to do/Expect to do:

    I expect lots of cuddles, and when we do I will play with your hair, kiss the top of your head, and maybe hum some soft tune or whisper sweet nothings to you. If we cuddle my favorite way to do so is to have my arm wrapped around you and your head on my chest. But a fair bit of warning, if we are cuddling and you kiss my neck and attempt to leave a hickey, I will accept it, then flip us over and most like fuck your brains out.

    If we get to this point then there will be times I want full control over you when you and I fuck, not all the time (unless desired.) I will simply give you pleasure and bask in your moans, knowing what I am doing actually feels good to you. I will give you mind blowing orgasms and a lot of them. I generally will return a bit of relief, you go down on me, I will on you. I may wake you up by gently playing with you or just wake you up with an orgasm. I will get you hot, bothered and horny like you’ve never known just by teasing you out and about in public between the two of us alone.

    When we go on dates I want to know how your day has gone, and if you feel angered, frustrated and annoyed tell me why. For the love of Pete don’t eat less than you normally do around me! I might challenge you to an eating contest then!

    We will do things I want to do, and we will do things you want to do! We alternate or switch who picks datenight every so often, and that also means what is at the end of date night.

    You will always need to remember, twizzlers are my favorite candy, and if I reject them then drop everything and talk to me, unless I say I had lunch or dinner, in which case wait till a later time. I will remember your birthday and odd little things you like, have done in the past, and especially where the best spot on your neck to kiss you is.

    I don’t care where we are, if you want me to hold you lift my arm around you and I will hold you close, rest your head on me and just talk to me about anything! Stuff you love to do, how you have been feeling, how annoying a sibling or acquaintance has been lately, I will listen to you. I want to just hear about you and hear you talk.

    Expect me to do dumb shit and say dumber things, expect me to do cute cheesy little things that will make you smile. Expect me to be goofy and make you giggle or laugh. Expect surprises like me maybe coming home with a random new pet like a gerbil or maybe a rescue dog! Expect presents, sneak attack hugs, neck kisses and cheek kisses, me standing behind you, arms wrapped around your waist and chin on top of your head or shoulder, and maybe my hand slipping into your pants slowly.

    If you ever need something, body wash, shampoo and/or conditioner, deodorant, razors, bodily care products/medicines ask me what you use and I’ll pick it up for you!

    If you want me to do something just ask me! As a matter of fact ask me anything! And the worst I will do to you is say “no,” or “I can’t (answer that.)”

    Expect to cry, expect to laugh and smile, because if you don’t during our entire relationship, then we were never really meant to be, because I want you to feel like no one else can make you feel but me. You will be my love, my friend, my vixen, but most of all, you are beautiful and cute, sexy and down right hot, gorgeous and I will put my life on the line for you.

    But if I ever do something wrong and it hurts you on any level tell me and I will apologize and never do or say that again. If I go too far tell me! But if there is one thing out of all of this you need to take away it is this:


    I’m watching Broadchurch to work on a moodboard, and I’m at the part where Hardy visits Jocelyn to do his will. Now I’m sure 500 people have wondered this already, but she says “Everything to your daughter, held until she’s 18. Lucky girl.” 

    Is she implying he has a lot of money to leave her? :O I wonder now if he has some family wealth. Interesting.

    I'm not going anywhere!

    Tumblr cannot restore my account, so I’m screwed. Please change your passwords! My Pandora account was also hacked. I used the same pw for each. Not anymore…

    Please, if you can share this message to anyone who might want to follow me back. I’m mostly upset that i lost everyone, and my art side blog was wiped.. I’m too upset at the moment to restore my theme and everything. I’ll get to it eventually.


    I don't like talking about politics, but I want to say one thing in the aftermath of Texas last night, then move on

    Few things annoy me more than people refusing to allow people to celebrate a victory.

    Now, everywhere I look, instead of people coming together and fighting and celebrating at each others’ sides, I see people complaining that we aren’t giving enough attention to other things.

    I understand, on the one hand. Terrible things are happening and I’m sure, when they’re near and dear to someone’s heart, it’s frustrating to see others disregard them.

    But at the same time–I am not as focused on things happening around the world as I am on things in my immediate area. I cry for the injuries done to my people, as people all over the world cry for the injuries done to theirs. It doesn’t mean that I’m apathetic. It doesn’t mean that I don’t care and don’t want people around the world to have the same rights and luxuries as I do, it isn’t that I don’t want to see justice done. Because I do.

    But I am allowed to cheer the victories that are happening in my backyard. I saw the same thing happen after the Boston Bombing–don’t cry for those people. Worse things have happened and are happening. I saw it happen after the Aurora Shooting and that hit me even closer to home than Boston, because unlike with Boston, I spent the day making phone calls to my friends to make sure that no one had been there. A friend of a friend was killed there.

    Don’t tell me that I shouldn’t be concerned for my loved ones because strangers have been killed. Don’t tell me that I shouldn’t be happy about a local victory because someone else has been defeated. People focusing on their loved ones, neighbors, and personal rights is not a sin.

    I won’t speak for anyone else. But if I can’t go two feet without being chastised for not being invested enough in the “correct things” (as defined by people I’ve never met), what you’ll see is me being invested in nothing at all.

    Allow me my victory. Allow me one day to celebrate it. Allow me my sorrows, and one day to grieve them. I cannot be everywhere for everyone at all times. I can only do what I can.

    I would like to start a new AU. The tiny house AU.

    Rose is an artist/writer/photographer/activist who travels across the country searching for inspiration. She stays in hostels, camps, and crashes with friends. Along the way, she meets John Smith, and his vibrant blue tiny home that seems much bigger on the inside than it appears. 

    Man, I get it, Day of Silence is pretty controversial if you want to break it down, and I’m happy I was eventually informed of this, but honestly it’s not all bad to participate. I’m pansexual, and today I participated in the day of silence, because I wanted people to ask. And as much as you might think it’s ass backwards to DELIBERATELY not speak, boy do you need to help me count the number of people that stopped to ask me about the Day of Silence and its purpose. To be honest, though, I did break my silence. Once. Because coincidentally we got on the subject of conversion therapy today! And golly gee if that didn’t give me the opportune moment to direct attention towards the topic. 

    Point is, sometimes we don’t have the money to donate things, or the family support to attend clubs, or the omniscient ability to call out any utterance of anti-gay anything in our vicinity, or most of all the attention of people that needed to hear the message most. Sometimes all we can do is slap some tape on our mouths and point the ignorant or uninformed in the right direction. And from my experience, that’s what happened. Successfully.

    And in all honesty, giving people a visual representation of the silence we keep is symbolic in my opinion. I can also, however, see how the deliberate silence could rub some the wrong way. But don’t put down or scorn people for participating in a event with good intentions that they see differently from you. Everyone will have a different approach to spreading awareness and the like, so this bickering over what is and isn’t an acceptable way of going about it and calling participants scum and such (and might I add that a LOT of participants are underclassman???) seems ridiculously uncalled for. You do you, they do they, I’ll do I. We’re all singing the same song in the end. 

    I was so sidetracked by the blog bullshit that I totally forgot to give an update on that writing critique group situation. ;)

    Sooo… I felt rude to just say ‘yo this is Broadchurch fic amirite’ so instead I tried to drop hints that I was one of them by saying how i write fanfiction when I introduced myself. She made a happy :O face but didn’t say anything. 

    When critiquing her work, I finally asked if she had seen Broadchurch and she said “Yes! It might have inspired this story but it goes in a totally different direction.” So idk what that means, since all I had was the first chapter…but we had a lot more things in common (she loves Doctor Who, and is writing another series that is a  YA modern fantasy).

    So that’s the dirt.

    Oh, they loved my chapter and wanted to read the rest. They said a few other highly complimentary things about my writing, which made me feel good. One of them was an english professor for 30 years and she said the nicest stuff.

    Went out with friends for dinner and drinks for the first time in over five years. It was such a needed outing with everything going on in my life. Saw this rainbow while walking to the dessert/cocktail place and it made me feel a bit of hope.

    Oh hey, I just hit 300 followers. :) Thank you all for following me! Especially after the blog problems I’ve had and the general slacking off I’ve done participating in anything fandom-related. :/

    A couple weeks ago on my way to school on the bus, we were driving down this particularly long road. Of course, I watch the cars, but a certain small, red car caught my eye. I happened to glance at the driver, and it was a man in full juggalo make-up, driving this pitiful red car, and just. Drove with us until we turned into the school parking lot. 

    I have never laughed so hard in my life.
