━━━ STARTER CALL ! i lost my other one shhhstab the heart for something of varying length ! these will be slow and done in between drafts whenever loki feels like ignoring whatever it is we actually gotta do .
( specify verse otherwise i’ll just go with a random one ! hmu if you’d prefer to discuss a plot prior to a thread)
hi loves! i realized i’ve been getting a lot of new followers recently so i wanted to do a lil introduction / get to know me tag kinda thing.
🦋 my name is isabella and im 15 years old
🦋 i’m really passionate about photography and have been getting into film lately. along with that i’d love to be a photojournalist some day to incorporate my love for writing
🦋 i drink kombucha almost every day (mango’s my favorite)
🦋 i also love banana bread, cherries, pomegrante chai lattes and MANGO
🦋 my music taste always changes but i consistently love chill rap (kendrick lamar, chance the rapper, childish gambino) and i’ve been loving alternative lately (tame impala, the lumineers, alt-j)
🦋 i’ve always loved fashion since i was a little toddler (my mom tells me) and over the years it’s changed drastically, but my current style i would say is art student meets street style. (does that even make sense??) you can usually find me wearing trousers, ripped jeans, oversized jackets, mini skirts, cropped sweaters, statement sunglasses, bodysuits and my vans! i’ve also been getting into layered gold necklaces and cool socks
🦋 i get 99% of my clothes from thrift shops not because im trying to be cool but because im broke
dave strider realizing hes gay/bisexual and coming to terms with his abusive childhood makes him so much more of a character than he was as the token “main character’s best friend who is cagey, funny, and a dick”
fandom often headcanons or reads labels/experiences like these onto lots of mediocre, kinda funny, and assholish dude characters – but dave is the real deal. dave strider expressed softness and kindness and introspection in canon in a way that was not corny or forced, and most importantly did not come at the expense of women (i would argue he was 100% more of a stepping stone for terezi’s arc than vice versa) and for that i appreciate him a lot
despite all of andrew hussie’s flaws and questionable/problematic/bad writing, he did a good thing by bringing dave strider into text. he did even more good by allowing his character to have depth in a way that is uncommon for boy characters.
homestuck broke so many molds (at least from my fandom experience) by having a super likable male character who was funny, witty, and complex… AND a gay/bi self-admitted survivor of abuse.
