what she means:homestuck is ending tomorrow. Tomorrow. everything andrew hussie has worked towards for seven years is coming to a conclusion on 4/13. after tomorrow we're never getting another upd8, never going to see the characters we watched grow up again. there's never going to be another story like this one again. the fandom is slowly going to grow smaller and move on and stop caring about the incredible world that hussie built. and I know we all like to joke about finally being free from this hellpit, but frankly I'm not ready to say goodbye. I don't want to say goodbye to the characters I've loved for so long, to the comic that's shaped me into who I am today. I'm not even close to prepared for this but I don't have a choice. Because homestuck is ending tomorrow aND NOTHING IS O K A Y
what i learned today while tallying homestuck statistics:
Dave has no idea how to end a conversation. I mean, I knew he just never shut the fuck up, but i’m trying to tally the number of conversations and in acts 1-4, and dave has had like, 8, total. cause whenever someone else says goodbye he just keeps talking at them until they eventually come back instead of actually signing out of pesterchum like a normal person
i honestly think constantly about Dirk Strider and how he’s doing but a favorite scenario i have to ponder would probably be him trying foods after they win the game cause like the dude ate nothing but fish, orange soda, and 400 year old rations before this. how does he react to fresh fruit and vegetables? regular orange juice? fresh baked bread? real actual pasta as opposed to stores of stale top ramen? spicy foods? and im not even just talking about hot stuff i’m talking about real home cooked meals where you can taste the love man.
ROXY: see ROXY: im a goddamn rogue ROXY: i TAKE shit ROXY: and now ima take back from the WITCH ROXY: everything she stole that shoulda been ours ROXY: promise of a better life ROXY: a future for humanity and trolls alike ROXY: all that shit ROXY: im going to swipe its lack ROXY: and make it all start being a thing again ROXY: lets never let all that stop from being a thing ever again ROXY: k guys???
The striders being openly affectionate with each other is so important though, because both these boys have spent most of their lives brushing off or hiding their emotions, and here they are smiling together, laughing together, supporting each other and just plain caring for each other’s well-being.
I’m really glad they were able to talk about each other’s feelings and hug it out in the end, and I’m just so so proud of my boys and how far they’ve come in their development. They finally have that brotherly relationship they always wished they had. ;v;
