Eridan things the fandom likes to forget

-Eridan did not have a consistent black crush on Sollux, rather the other way around (See Kanaya: return to the core)

-He can hold on to his lusus with his legs alone

- he doesn’t actually like to swim and has probably never visited Feferi

- He is concerned about the aquatic environment (though this feeds into his bigoted hatred for landwellers)

- He knows millitary tactics

- He likes history

- He was gossip buddies with Karkat to the point where Feferi thought they were something else

- He actually did have friends prior to SGRUB despite what a little bitch he is ( these include Karkat and Kanaya)

- Karkat was the one person Eridan considered a “true friend” 

- Karkat (who had just witnessed the deaths of his friends) revokes his friendship from a past Eridan BEFORE he kills anyone. This possibly feeds into him going murderous in the first place.

- He had red crushes on Feferi, Nepeta, Jade and Karkat

- He had a black crushes on Rose, Vriska and possibly at one point Sollux which may have been abandoned like the other ones.

-He wanted Terezi to be his auspistice which she rejected immediately

- Eridan was probably the most “socially functional” troll based on what we know of Alternian Society. A useless trait in the game, but probably increasing his odds of survival prior to the game.

- He actually prioritizes his old friendship with Feferi than any crush.

- Feferi had no intention of staying friends with him which he admits feeling hurt by, but getting somewhat over it

-He’s not a Nice Guy, he is 13 and feels hurt but understands his feelings aren’t reciprocated and he can do nothing about it.

- Eridan killed Feferi in self defense, she was going for the kill too.

- Same with Kanaya

- Eridan didn’t start the fight with Sollux and actually wanted to avoid it but took part in it on Sollux’s insistence.

- He doesn’t believe in Magic. At all.

- Vriska has blocked Eridan multiple times on Trollian

- Eridan took Gamzee’s advice at one point.

- Eridan dislikes Gamzee and finds him irritating

- He did think he was doing something wrong prior to his murder spree

-He felt lonely and ostracized 

- He is 13.

someone was talking about miracles the other day, and my mind somehow drifted back to gamzee makara.
um?? what year is this, 2012??

aquatariuswriter reblogged your post “Next nerd incoming….. Eridan. Do you think he was justified by self defense in killing fef?”

Friend, I’m afraid you’re wrong.

Grimdark cannot happen unless one is dabbling in dark magics/horror terror stuff. Like Rose was. Rose went grimdark because of her communication with the outer rings, her obsession and ensuing use of horribly dark magic, and the trigger, her mother dying. It’s been speculated that it’s something that was specific to herself, because of the game shenanigans.

Eridan did not have either the horrorterrors, or the dark magic. He was angry, and the two panels are a styling choice. He dabbled in white magic, in ‘science.’ Not in dark. Feferi would be a closer choice for someone turning grimdark, since she was actually in communication with the horrorterrors.

Another note: Grimdarkness is not a light switch. you can’t turn it on and off. Rose’s grimdark stayed with her until she died and then rose (haha) again,  due to her god tier statues.

While the subject of Eridan’s ‘self defense’ is still, erm, debateble if we’re being generous to him, it’s certain that he did not, and could not, go grimdark.

And I assure you that he could and he did.  Why? Because he was ghosting his other classpect - Sylph of Rage. It’s not connection to Horrorterrors that warrants grimdarkness, it’s unleashing the uncontrollable inner rage that has been triggered by a stressful event.

He keeps flickering between Prince of Hope and Sylph of Rage further on.

That’s why Jade who has no connection to Horrorterrors whatsoever goes grimbark because she holds big amounts of aggression inside herself thanks to being prototyped with Bec who is perfectly capable of it. 

I’ll go even further and say that Gamzee’s “Hero/Murder mode” is also a sign of grimdarkness.

His face is literally black under the make up and hair. That’s the most GRIM color of DARKNESS you can get.

Rose’s grimdarkness is triggered by Horrorterrors and that’s true! But in her case this is the only way she could achieve it, because she, as a player who has no connection to Rage aspect whatsoever, needed external help with it. Horroterrors are the best beings in the universe she could come to. Why?

Because Horrorterrors are alternate Gamzees. That’s why we never see alternate Gamzees in dreambubbles or in the army Tavros has gathered. 

Their blood is exactly the same color as Gamzee’s.

And yes, you can switch on and off grimdarkness. It’s called switching on and off your brain. Rose switched off her brain by dying, Vriska did it for Jade by putting her to sleep. 

And Gamzee?

Gamzee simply got calmed the fuck down by the most calming touch in Paradox Space. Considering the fact  his brain is taken over by Lil Cal’s influence, this means it was removed from his mind because Caliborn can’t stand fluff.

There are no accidents or stylistic choices for the sake of being decorative in Homestuck, friend. It’s not that kind of comic.

y’know what I should do instead of sleeping?  I should draw my OTP sleeping.

let’s play: name that character!

this character was raised in a household with little to no supervision and easy access to addictive substances. when introduced, their personality was of someone with a serious problem, but they eventually beat their addiction. however, people think it’s still okay in 2017 to reduce them to jokes about substance abuse.

am i talking about roxy lalonde or gamzee makara?
