grub plushies

Terezigrub makes her R3GUL4R P4TROL of the apartment to look for anything out of place.

WH4T’S TH1S?

>:!

It appears to be a new wigglefriend under a comfortable-looking blankie! Terezi’s SH4RP 1NV3ST1G4T1V3 M1ND tells her right away that this must be Aradiagrub’s dancestor. She squeaks excitedly to alert all of her friends.

Damaragrub wriggles out from under her blanket a bit. She seems friendly, even if Terezigrub can’t quite decipher what her squeaks are saying.

Soon enough all of the wigglers have gathered around to greet their new friend! Damaragrub seems to enjoy the attention and the affection. She certainly thinks she will stick around here.

[I’ve finished my new Damaragrub! This is the first of a series of posts
introducing her; the links will be added to this post when they’re made: post 1

CALLING ALL HOMESTUCKS
I am starting a mass production of grubs~ this one is karkat and I am going to make all the others, each with their color and I different face. Each grub will be sold around $30. We will be selling them as the geeky squeaker (thegeekysqueaker) on etsy. They are not up yet but we will get them up eventually. Any further questions you may ask in my ask box and I will answer as soon as possible and publicly. They are about 14 inches long

Who wants to win a Karkat grub plushie???

Much like the ones in the picture above! I’ve got one more that’s almost finished being made who needs a good home! 
Sooooo I thought it would be kind of fun to hold a little Homestuck art/creativity contest And the first place winner will get the little guy! 

Now lately I’ve seen some people making up OC’s that are the children of ships that they love and in all honesty I always like to see those! Hell I have a few characters like that of my own even! 

So that’s going to be the theme of this contest! To enter you need to either make or enter an already made OC that is supposed to be the child of one of your favorite Homestuck Pairings! (this is for CanonXCanon pairings btw.)

If you hope to win though I’ll need more then just a drawing, so don’t worry if you don’t think your art skills are good enough, i’m looking for more then just that here!
 I love OC’s. But in order to really like an OC you gotta be able to get to know them, not just see a picture of them! I want to read about your character along with their picture! General information, Likes and dislikes, hobbies and interests, fears and insecurities. What’s their family life like? What are some things that have happened to them? Who are their friends? etc etc. Anything you can think of from lists of random info to short little stories to little clips of dialog even! Now obviously you don’t have to give me ALL that information that was all just suggestions of things you could put, but I want to get to know your character is all i’m saying! 
——-

In the world of Homestuck Ectobiology does exist making it possible for MalexMale, FemalexFemale and HumanxTroll pairings to have biological kids so don’t worry if the ship you want to use are any of those because in that universe it is possible! 

—-

Now for a couple of quick rules though:

1. Please nothing sexual in the artwork itself. If you want to talk about anything relating to their sex life in the bio writing feel free to (though please nothing to graphic)  but please just put a warning at the top that there is sexual stuff in it.

2. Please put all the bio writing in typing under the picture rather then written on the picture itself! I don’t have the greatest eyesight and hand writing is usually more difficult to read then typing.

3. Absolutely NO being mean to or causing trouble for someone else who enters because you don’t like the ship they picked or really for any reason at all. 

———-

Now I definitely am not going to let my personal preference for certain ships effect my judging, it’s the OC i’m judging not the ships. And i’ll probably be getting a couple of friends to help pick the winners with me anyway, but there is one thing.
Now I feel really bad for this but, there are a few ships that I…am not going to ban you from using but I want to HIGHLY advise against using for this, because these few are ships that straight up make me really uncomfortable and probably will effect my judging and I don’t that to happen.

And those ships would be any of the incest ships. AKA:
DavexDirk 
DavexBro
DavexRose
DavexRoxy
RosexRoxy
JohnxJade
JohnxJake
JadexJake
RosexMom
JohnxDad
JohnxJane….you get the picture. (probably didn’t need to type them all out I know)

Now if you really like any of those ships that is Perfectly okay!! I have no problem with other people liking them and shipping them at all absolutely go right ahead and ship anything you like!! I just Personally am uncomfortable with them is all!
So Like I said, i’m not banning any of those from being used in this contest, but I would definitely advise against it. 

———–
Now for Prizes!!

Obviously first place will be the grub plushie! I’ll also draw a sketch picture of your entered OC as well!

Second place will get a full colored request drawing! And it doesn’t have to be Homestuck if you don’t want. (i’ll send my general request guide lines to the winner when they’re picked)

And Third place will get a full color drawing of their entered OC!

As for everyone else, if i’m not a total lazy butt I was thinking I’d probably draw sketches of all the other entry characters as well! Depending on how many entries this gets though and how busy life is it may or may not happen. Or could potentially take a lot of time. Still though, I’d like to do that for sure!

——

Sorry that was so long! If you’re interested in entering the Contest will run up until May 1st. At that point I wont accept any more people entering and those who have already asked to enter who haven’t submitted their entry yet will have one more week to do so before the judging begins and the winners are chosen! 

If you wish to enter just sent me a PM letting me know you wish to enter and maybe let me know which pairing you’re going to be making a child for! And of course if you have any questions definitely feel free to ask! 

Whew! Damaragrub is completely exhausted after all of the fun she’s had with her new friends. Time to curl up for a nap!

p00f

Aradiagrub squeaks hello to her wigglesister! She indicates that she’s been out and about through the timeline all day, dealing with c00l things like archae0l0gy, tasty f00d, and din0saurs.

Damaragrub offers Aradiagrub a sm00ch, but thinks they’ll have to catch up later. It’s naptime!

Aradiagrub nods and yawns. All of that timetravel she’s done is pretty exhausting and she could use a nap too.

In that case, Damaragrub is happy to snuggle up with her dancestor and share her blankie!

[post 1 (intro), post 2 (terezi), post 3 (kanaya), post 4 (latula), post 5 (aradia), post 6 (finale).]

Kanayagrub wiggles over to investigate Damaragrub’s time blankie. She thinks it looks quite nice, and feels like it’s soft and warm. She can’t help but be a bit jealous!

Also, due to her interest in sewing, she inspects the craftsmanship a bit more carefully. She approves of the handiwork. Somehow she has a strange feeling that it might be her own, from the future.

Grubly Shoutpole

Oh dear, it looks like Damaragrub misinterpreted Kanayagrub’s interest in the blanket as meaning that she wanted to curl up underneath it. And when your friends have time powers and psionics there’s not usually much of a chance to object to these sorts of things.

After Some Consideration However Kanayagrub Decides She Is Completely Okay With This Turn Of Events.

4-H4! Terezigrub knew her K33N NOS3 smelled some T4STY 1MPORT3D CONF3CT1ONS under Damaragrub’s time blankie.

Terezigrub has to have some. Fortunately she has just the thing to barter with in her sylladex.

Despite a bit of a language barrier, the wrigglers quickly come to terms on a C4NDY TR4D3.

Delicious!

Latulagrub is sup3r h3ll4 3xc1t3d to have a new alpha troll grub friend around! She offers some high-fives, and then asks Damaragrub to join her for some r4d v1d3o g4m3z.

Damaragrub is intrigued, and decides to follow along. Latulagrub indicates that she’s been doing a lot of Animal Crossing lately, and wants Damara to make a town so they can play together!

The grubs skitter out to the living room to play!

Latulagrub suggests Damara set up her new town on the old 3DS.

They curl up together and get going! Damaragrub hopes that her town starts out with some fl00fy sheep villagers @0u0@.

Terezigrub helps out with the PR3PWORK for dinner. She’s especially excited about what we’re making today - chicken jalfrezi. Her extensive research tells her that “jal” is derived from a Bengali word for “spicy food”, and she’s quite sure that “frezi” means “for Terezi”.

And soon enough it’s mealtime! Terezi sniffs deeply and enjoys the wonderful curry aromas. Time to dig in!

She can’t help but start by nibbling on the FR3SHLY B4K3D N44N.

It doesn’t take long for a hungry grub to polish off the meal. D3L1C1OUS!

She only has one small suggestion for next time. She isn’t going to grow up to be a fire-breathing dragon without some help, you know!

4www y3ssss!!! Latula has been waiting so long to get her little grublegs on this game. And now she gets to fire it up while her friends all crowd around…

Hey, where did her wiggler friends go?

Hmm… Kanayagrub seems enthralled by a New Localized Source Of Illumination That Outshines Her Own Natural Luminescence. This will surely be useful for her detailed sewing work!

And Terezi is off in the kitchen inspecting some FR4GR4NT H3RBS and the rest of the bounty from a recent shopping trip. She’s clearly daydreaming of delicious CURR13S to come.

As for Aradia… who knows where and when she’s gotten off to. And since she’s a timewiggler she’s probably less excited about a new game that she’s seen already.

Oh well… no point in waiting up for any los3rz, there’s a r4dg4m3 to play!!!

Here is Kanayagrub exploring her new surroundings! At long last I’ve completed her (I’m pretty sure it was… three years ago when I made my first two grubs and started on Kanaya and then got worn out? And just never got back to it until now). She’s still following the same basic pattern as the first two grubs I made, but with some minor tweaks to improve how I did things like the hair. 

Also it didn’t take long for Kanaya to find some friends! Aradia and Terezi offer her some hugs, and are excited to have a new buddy who’s good with chainsaws.

I made a quick trip to the grocery store today, and as always Terezigrub is there to 1NV3ST1G4T3 my haul. Here she is climbing atop a collection of SH4RP TH1NGS to observe the fresh collection of FR4GR4NT H3RBS. 

WH4T’S TH1S? >:!

Terezigrub doesn’t really know what R3D CURRY P4ST3 is, but she has a feeling it would be completely illegal not to use it right away.

Terezigrub is deciding to look into this 3XC1T1NG N3W COUNTRY that the wigglers and I will be moving to in a few months! She certainly approves of the flag. It smells to her like STR4WB3RRY COMPOT3 with a hint of PUR3 M4PL3 SYRUP.

… you know, all of this research can really make a grub hungry. And she knows just what she wants for a snack!

Tonight for dinner was stir-fry. Terezigrub insisted on hers being 3XTR4 SP1CY so that she could learn to breathe fire like a R34L DR4GON >:D

Pictured: A hungry grub about to strike her prey.

So incredibly D3L1C1OUS and spicy. And now that she’s done, time to try out that fire-breathing!

R4WR!!!! >:0~~~~~

Kanayagrub Remains Fortunately Not Incinerated

However She Does Have A Suggestion For Her Friend

As a licensed medical practitioner, Doctor Honeytongue has the responsibility of giving the wigglers their regular checkups.

Oh dear! During her examination, the good doctor discovers Terezigrub has a bit of a leg injury. He recommends immediate grub surgery.

Fortunately, the operation is a simple one that Honeytongue has performed many times before.

Soon enough, Terezi is all stitched up and ready to go!

Her friends are glad to see that Terezi’s made it through the ordeal in good spirits! Of course, getting a D3L1C1OUS 1C3 CR34M TR34T at the end is enough to cheer any wiggler up.
