i found this and please just read hussies comments on vriska because im almost in tears i cant believe ive never seen this before…. shes my FAVE and i will eat up literally any commentary made abt her
When I was about to launch into the Hivebent arc, I thought one cool opportunity that presented was to introduce a very major character out of nowhere, who we had literally no foreknowledge of other than one shot of a strange looking horn cropped off panel. The entire profile of this character was always meant to be “someone who is in some way involved with practically everything", and the scorpio sign seemed suited to this. This aspect of her profile was conveyed up front in her introduction, and hammered repeatedly with almost every scene she’s been in. Hivebent was a good introduction to the ways in which she entangles herself nefariously with everything, and slowly but surely, this has been revealed to be the case in the main plotline. It was unclear before, and indeed unclear that this was even a question that needed to be answered, because she had not been introduced yet. And personally, I think there's something kind of exciting which that proposition injects into a story.
Before Hivebent, most of the trolls were portrayed as incompetent at trolling. And when the roster was expanded, the question was begged: are any of these trolls any good at trolling? So part of her profile was also to serve as the ultimate troll. Karkat was an effective troll insofar as he was loud and angry and obnoxious, but that’s about as far as it went. Vriska was designed to be a good troll in the purest sense of the word. She gets people legitimately riled up. Both in the story, and even more importantly, outside it. There is no other troll, or really even any other aspect of Homestuck, which generates more debate. This was intentional, and continues to be.
anyway simon is going to realize he has feelings for raphael and then come out in episode 10. and raphael is going to reciprocate and they’re going to be a beautiful love story. i dont know a toad slatekin.

Who is Balaga? I mean, I know he’s the F A M O U S T R O I K A D R I V E R but who is he? He clearly knows Anatole and Dolokhov from past experiences, but what’s his history with them? Has Anatole eloped with more than one rich girl? Where are the “places not on any maps” and why the hell would Anatole and Dolokhov want to go to them? What were they up to - and more importantly, how much of it does Balaga know? He says he “knows things that would get you sent straight to Siberia if anyone found out”, but Anatole cheating on the wife barely anyone knows about doesn’t seem serious enough to qualify that, so what has he and/or Dolokhov done that Balaga knows about? Is that why he never has to “ask for roubles”? Because he has dirt on them so they pay him off? When he refers to his “fine gentlemen”, does he mean various customers or, as is seeming increasingly likely, does he mean just Anatole and Dolokhov? Could that mean that when he says guys have “beaten me and slapped me with their gloves”, that could have something to do with the fucked up arrangement he has with them? Did he witness something he wasn’t meant to? Alternatively, could the two owe him something, like something suspicious? Dolokhov is a “crazy good shot” according to the prologue, but he misses when he shoots at Pierre in the Duel, even though he managed to assassinate the Shah’s brother… could it be possible that Balaga had something to do with that?? He claims some say his troika “rides into the air”, which doesn’t seem realistically possible - is Balaga some kind of demon, who made a dark deal with Dolokhov and Anatole and therefore doesn’t “do this for roubles” and “does it because I like it” because he’s a true chaotic evil? He’s definitely contributing to chaos by helping them abduct Natasha. Additionally, Anatole’s defining feature - that he’s H O T - is a little nondescript… is it an enchantment that Balaga gave him? So that all women around him would fall in love with him? Did they send witches to Siberia in 1812?? AM I READING FAR TOO FAR INTO THIS? I KNOW I AM BUT GET THIS: I DON’T THINK BALAGA’S A HUMAN AND I HAVE FURTHER EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT TH
“Hold your breath. Don’t deny the pressure until I tell you to. I want the water inside you to be so unbearable in its ravaging that you would have no choice but to drown in me." A beat. And then, "please." Passed over again, and then again, his anger stretches itself thin until it breaks to reveal the desperation, the solitude. But what has he to offer to a girl of the earth?
So when the direct was on a little while ago and we saw the fe14 trailer and the SE got released for preorder with a launch date (WE’RE SO CLOSE GUYS WE’RE SO. CLOSE.) I remembered my EXTREME HYPE for this game and wanted to draw something for it
but at the same time I remembered that I’m still in denial over Silas not being the gay marriage candidate so I thought of something fun to do to squeeze in both and TADA. quietly lays on the otfamily
I’M REALLY SUPER HAPPY WITH HOW THIS CAME OUT and I absolutely had a blast doing it. It’s a simpler thing but I think that’s what was so fun about it tbh.
I had some trouble with Silas’ face at first since downward angled faces are the bane of me sometimes and didn’t draw his full chest piece cuz SCREW ARMOR but the way the interactions and expressions and just the whole thing came out makes me so proud ヾ(*´∀｀*)ﾉ
okay imagine cosette working at lush and gushing on and on to the amis about her one co-worker who they would all love, because the co-worker is super cool and nice and can guess somebody’s favourite product just by looking at them, and then one day enjolras is finally like ‘okay look if they’re so great just bring them to a meeting already, would you?’ so she does and just
imagine everybody’s surprise when she walks into the musain, arm in arm with bahorel- who is a foot and a half taller than her, pure muscle, and has an awful looking black eye, and who just takes them all in and then turns to cosette and asks ‘what the fuck are they staring at?’
