i seriously can’t get over this update. Everything i see is making me sad. And I’m going to say one last thing before I *attempt to* go off of Tumblr today. The reason I think everyone is so sad is because everyone is dwelling on the deaths of all the characters and what is going to happen next. When we really should be thinking about all the good things that have happened.
The fandom has actually made homestuck a wonderful thing. It’s made it funny and happy through art and fanfictions. And yeah, a bunch of characters just died but THEY WERE ALL READY DEAD. Or at least most of them were. And before when characters died people just kept on making things about them. Creating them in a new light. They never really died, not to us. I know this is cheesy but the characters are forever alive in our hearts.
Just because something really sad just happened doesn’t mean this is something horrible we have to dwell on. We should focus on the good parts of homestuck. Remember just a couple pages ago when Jake kissed Dirk and then all the characters came back to life? Or when we saw the scratched characters again? What about all the humorous things that have happened like Karkat being attacked by a killer bucket or Gamzee trying to sell a love potion to Jane who was suspiciously eyeing his cod piece? And thats only recent. Lets take a look back at some good things.
Does anyone remember how excited they were when all the characters FINALLY started the game? And I was proudly fangirling at all…IDK how many but all of the kissing scenes. Even the one with Dante Basco. That was hilarious. We have to look back to when John was yelling ‘NO HOMO’ while shoving bunnies at ecto babbies, to when Rose pretended 'W’ magnets were mustaches, when Jade crazily hopped about and nourished her plants, and when Dave got bombarded by hundreds of plushrumps. But what about the trolls? I’ll name one good thing that happened during hivebent to each of the trolls. Or at least try.
“AG:Have you tricked Sollux yet?
AG: Do you have Mr. Two Eyes all 8efuddles and flustered in your we8 of lies?
AG: Or Mr. Four Eyes?
AG: I don’t know. Which nickname do you think would 8e suita8ly derogatory in this case Aradia?
AA: h0w ab0ut
AA: eight eyes
AA: minus seven
Tavros- This character is just pure adorable. Especially when he got excited when his lusus and purple-horse-THING slept cuddled next to each other *DYK- Tavros is one of the biggest romantic interest in homestuck and the only one to be kissed while alive.*
Sollux- Don’t eat the miind honey. OH FUCK SOME GOT IIN MY MOUTH! How about lets try 2ome. UNDER NO CIRCUM2TANCE DO YOU EVER EAT THE MIIND HONEY!! Ok! let2 eat 2ome miind honey! :D
Karkat- I can’t find all of them there are so many. All of his nicknames, snide remarks, and sarcastic answers. He’s even more bipolar than Sollux. From yelling at nothing to crying over and kissing dead friends to blatantly showing his blood color. geez-louise.
Nepeta: HER SHIPPING WALL. Nuff said.
Kanaya: F1 bonk :3
Terezi: “The coin tumbles through the air. Lemonsnout is sweating bullets!!!/A favorable flip. The senator exhales in relief./ But what are you so happy about, Mr. Lemonsnout? He looks a bit confused. He quivers his lowly proboscis at the coin. See? The coin has exonerated him./ Coin? What coin? Surely you jest, Mr. Senator. The prosecution sees no coin./ SHE’S BLIND, REMEMBER?” And out the window he went.
Vriska- How a8out we make him have some haaaaaaaappy thought? :::;)
Gamzee- HiS sYlLaDeX iS jUsT mOtHeRfUcKiN’ mIrAcLeS
Eridan- Doesn’t believe in magic. Becomes a wizard.*you’re a wizard, Eri*
I know those are all textbook style things that everyone remembers, but those were still good times! If you don’t count what came after some in a few places. Point is, Homestuck isn’t just death and misery. Most of it is humor. Remember when Dave was being shoosh-papped by onions? Or how adorable those little salamanders were?
I do egnolage all of the bad stuff that has happened such as when the characters originally died or right after the Act 5 Act 2 flash, but we still got through it! We can get through this too! We just have to think sbout the good parts of homestuck, not the bad. Hey, even the update had good news in it. Tavros got God Tier! And there are some really funny pictures all ready drawn and up!
That’s my personal favorite :) *cod pieces+leotards=best ship ever*
And other people are here for you. We will get through this.
