based it off a horrorterror!dave thing that @steakbatter did a long time ago and i just wanted to draw something like that. obviously i can’t do something exactly like what they did, but i’m still proud with this piece.
thinkin bout the fact that Homestuck is a creation myth that celebrates LGBT people and presents mortal effort as the ultimate divine force, and what a sharp counterpoint that presents to like every other creation myth out there, like say Genesis. The world isnt a gift from above handed from God, but something we create for ourselves. And LGBT people aren't an abberation from the base model of humanity but simply normal people who existed at the beginning. Homestuck is good thanks
Yesss. Sometimes I’m like, huh. I like Homestuck? And then I remember that this long and epic and entertaining read, which had a Huge follower base, ended with so much positive LGBT rep. It really didn’t have to; anyone who accuses that these relationships are pandering has no idea what they’re talking about. I certainly don’t think the fanbase would have diminished any to have had Rose end up with John, but instead Rose ended up with a girl. Dave cool-guy Strider ended up with a boy. His cool brother, gay. Roxy dreamboat cool-girl, wlw. That’s not even all of it; I have good reason to like Homestuck.

What's the deal with those blue lady paintings? Are they from something other than homestuck or are they just a weirdly specific homestuck creation? Hussie puts in so many easter eggs and references that it's hard to tell
Grandpa Harley just likes Cerulean Ladies, if there’s some other reference I’m not sure what it would be
Doc Scratch told Rose that he is helping her because he wants to die, but if this tick-tock code is similar to the Meow code of the kids’ session, then manipulating the trolls is what brought about his creation.
honestly i love both tex talks and fletcher wortmann’s analysis of homestuck so much… having consumed both is so mind-blowing
i think it’s wild how both are so spot on and yet come from two very different people in completely different majors/fields of work
it’s amazing how they both use their intricate knowledge of their field of study to examine homestuck through two completely different metatextual lenses (homestuck as a creation myth borne from knowledge of programming and computer functions vs. homestuck’s use of pesterlogs as a very intricate and intimate way of showing engaging character interaction that outdoes most pieces of media) and how both analyses are not only spot on, but also give sufficient proof that hussie intended these readings of his work and that depth was entirely intentional
