inverse of time

Going Grimdark and Inversion

Let me be upfront when I say that, as far as I know, there has only ever been one example of a character going Grimdark in Homestuck: Rose Lalonde. Jade’s brief time spent as Grimbark!Jade is not the same since her shift was caused by Her Imperious Condescension’s mind-control, not the Horrorterrors. The Horrorterrors are the key to becoming Grimdark, and as Rose displayed, they don’t control you; they invert your aspect.

Aspect inversion is a tricky subject. How the aspects invert is fairly simple - each aspect has an opposite, after all:

Breath - Blood

Light - Void

Time - Space

Life - Doom

Heart - Mind

Hope - Rage

But class inversion is harder to pin down. There is the Passive-Active dichotomy that Calliope discussed with Dirk (Prince is active while Bard is passive), but this is not an inversion. Inverting someone’s class would require finding the class that acts as its direct opposite. As such, I will be using @classpect-shet​‘s Class Inversion Guide, which can be found here. The inversions of classes are as follows:

Heir - Mage

Seer - Witch

Knight - Rogue

Page - Thief 

Maid - Bard

Sylph - Prince

For example, if I were to go Grimdark, I would go from being a Knight of Rage to a Rogue of Hope: one who distributes inspiration and positive emotions through inspiration and positive emotions. A Mage of Space would become an Heir of Time. Et cetera. When Rose went Grimdark and succumbed to the Horrorterrors, she became a Witch of Void: one who manipulates nothingness and ignorance through nothingness and ignorance. The meaning of her words were concealed to the point where no one could understand what she was trying to say. In other words, manipulating her secrets to make others ignorant. She managed to obfuscate the troll’s viewport of her and those who she was near, creating a Blackout. Vriska said as much when she tried contacting John after their encounter with Jack on the Battlefield when she advised him to get away from Rose so she could see him.

Unlike Trickster Mode - which is incredibly unlikely to occur even with a Cherub influence in their session - going Grimdark is a very real possibility for a session so long as players (probably Derse-dreamer) have a connection to the Horrorterrors. How one would turn it off is a matter of debate. Rose only returned to being a Seer of Light when she died, so there’s no way of knowing if it can even be stopped aside from death.

So yeah! Grimdark! I’m not sure how to end this, so I’ll just add a badass picture of Grimdark!Rose

Aang: Well, I met with this Guru who was supposed to help me master the Avatar State, and control this great power. But to do it, I had to let go of someone I love, and I just couldn't.


Iroh: Perfection and power are overrated. I think you were very wise to choose happiness and love.

“You’re just a whole bunch of new cruel people. A whole bunch of new cruel people being cruel to some other people who’ll end up being cruel to you. The only way anyone can live in peace is if they’re prepared to forgive. Why don’t you break the cycle?”

anonymous asked:

I have an odd question? Do you think AR's classpect would be the same as Dirk's, or different? And, if you don't mind, what classpect do you think it would be? Because I'm having some trouble with figuring that out, and have asked my friends, but the responses were half the same, half different, and classpect guesses were pretty varied, so I figured I could ask you? Thank you for reading this, and sorry if it annoys you!

He’s a Sylph of Mind, the inverse of Prince of Heart

i love the foxhole court but why the hell does the fandom think it’s okay to defend the shit the characters do by using something a different character did???

like yeah people focus a lot more on aaron’s homophobia than other things in the books i.e kevin‘s comments toward nicky about being a bad influence on neil and the entire eden’s twilight situation in the first book but. guys. that doesn’t mean aaron isn’t still homophobic?? one person’s behavior doesn’t cancel out somebody else’s. you can pull up receipts for nearly every character that appears in the series because nobody is designed to be perfect (except for like. jeremy. maybe.) and that won’t mean ur fave is innocent.

                                    THE WITCHING HOUR

Term that refers to the time at which creatures of the night, demons and ghosts are thought to appear and to be most powerful. The period lasts from 3 a.m to 4 a.m. The devil’s hour applies to the hour of 2:33 a.m, 3 a.m or 3:33 a.m., all with number 3 for mocking the Holy Trinity and it is said this is an inversion of the time at which Christ died at Calvary.

All Mages

Mage of Hope 

Mage of Hope (Understander of Faith) will probably be really good at understanding any sort of religious texts or myths. The Mage of Hope could tell you all about Subbjuglator Religion (or any religion for that matter) and would have mythology as an interest. They are a super bubbly and unfortunately kind of an idiot when something lies outside of their immediate interests, or at least they sound like one. You can never really tell with this person. They believe almost anything that someone tells them and despite the fact that life isn’t fair to them they want to see the good in everyone. They also like making a lot of silly sex jokes just for shits and giggles. They see the hope in everything cuz they’ve felt true despair and since they’ve come out of it they understand where to find it. 

Lessons:

  • Mage: Even though life makes it rough for you, and it may feel like there’s not much to you, you can’t hate yourself, okay? You learn to accept who you are and that who you are is okay! 
  • Hope: You either to naive and believe in everything that everyone tells you, or your too skeptical and don’t believe in anything! Learn to balance your faith. 
  • Mage of Hope: Being the kind of gullible and hopeful person they are they will get used by a lot of people, they need to keep their faith and hope in the world while also learning how to judge someone’s character.

Inverse is the Heir of Rage (Changer of Illusion)

Mage of Rage

Mage of Rage (Understander of Illusion) is constantly getting involved in the drama almost inadvertently, and as a result is always emotionally exhausted. They are constantly complaining about all the stress and tries suppressing their anger and negative emotions so that they can reliable for others. But sometimes it bursts out and they snap. They’ll snap at people and then hide away without any word from days to even weeks. Then they come back and the whole process starts again and they hate themselves for it. As for physical powers, they can gather up the negative emotions of her teammates and convert it into “magic” powers.

Lessons:

  • Mage: Even though life makes it rough for you, and it may feel like there’s not much to you, you can’t hate yourself, okay? You learn to accept who you are and that who you are is okay! 
  • Rage: Inside of you is a raging storm that you’re either holding at bay, or letting loose in a wild frenzy. Neither is healthy for you and for anyone else. If you hold it back it will only let loose and hurt the people around you, and if you are going unchecked you will only go to worser extents. Learn how to healthily channel your anger. 
  • Mage of Rage: They needs to stop getting involved in everyone’s drama.

Inverse is the Heir of Hope

Mage of Space

Mage of Space (Understander of Creation) is one of the loneliest and depressed mages out there and they do they don’t do a very good job at trying not to be that. Its not as if the enjoy it, because they certainly do not get attention for it. But this eccentric person is extremely, extremely lonely, despite some of their best efforts at times. It’s like the universe is trying to tell them to just let go and stop trying to impress people to get friends, but they come up with wackier schemes even so. They aren’t bad it’s just, they try so hard to not be weird that they come off weird. Power wise, they would be an extremely handy in frog breeding and once they stop trying to get the frogs, the frogs will come to them! Frog magnet! And they have cool space magic. They’ll have the ability (when they get strong) to “magically” conjure the heat and brightness of stars and warp the reality around them. 

Lessons:

  • Mage: Even though life makes it rough for you, and it may feel like there’s not much to you, you can’t hate yourself, okay? You learn to accept who you are and that who you are is okay! 
  • Space: You have a very important role very vital to those around you, you need to embrace this part of you. And don’t be embarrassed of the things you love and want to be, let yourself transform. And embrace the loneliness of space. 
  • Mage of Space: Learn to just stop trying so hard and be your weird wacky self for who you are, and learn the beauty in your loneliness! 

Inverse is the Heir of Time 

Mage of Time

The Mage of Time believes that they can save everyone, find all the answers, and make everything okay by themselves and refuses help. Yet at the same time they need people constantly and have a hard time functioning without others. Because of this they go through a weird back and forth with all their friends and don’t ask for help when they need it most. Emotionally, they can completely rely on someone to the point where it’s extremely unhealthy and manipulative. But they are incredibly loyal and risk their lives in saving others. They are extremely good with their aspect and are surrounded in time. For powers, they have the ability to speed up, speed down, stop, or reverse a targets time. But they can only do this at a limited amount of time.

Lessons:

  • Mage: Even though life makes it rough for you, and it may feel like there’s not much to you, you can’t hate yourself, okay? You learn to accept who you are and that who you are is okay!
  • Time: You may want to be completely independent from others and only reliant on yourself, but you need to learn to let people in and to lean on them when your not strong. You may also be completely be codependent and clingy and need to learn to function on your own.
  • Mage of Time: Instead of constantly pushing and pulling the people around you and using them, learn how to love yourself on your own and ask people for help when you need it. You are strong, you just have to let yourself be strong and let yourself exist.

Inverse is the Heir of Space

Mage of Breath

So a Mage of Breath (Understander of Direction) is a great leader understanding the spirit of their team what direction they need to go in. This godtier would dive into something with reckless abandon, so they need a level headed player to balance them out. Their free spirit would always fuck them over by making their relationships hard to maintain and making them almost too free from the group. They would be very interested in weather patterns and would probably have mad skills as a meteorologist. Actually as for physically powers I think they would have a set of powers very similar to Storm from X-Men. They also have serious commitment issues and hate themselves for it, and hate the fact that if things get too tough they’ll flee.

Lessons:

  • Mage: Even though life makes it rough for you, and it may feel like there’s not much to you, you can’t hate yourself, okay? You learn to accept who you are and that who you are is okay!
  • Breath: You either come off too assertive and in other people’s faces and business, or you barely leave a mark on people. In the first case you need to learn how to calm yourself down and stop impeding on other people’s lives. In the latter you need to become more confident in who you are and get more involved. Assert yourself.
  • Mage of Breath: There’s nothing wrong with being a free spirit and your first step is accepting that. You need to learn though, how to manage that so that it doesn’t get in the way of being close to people. And while trying to learn how to not runaway, remember that there is such things as a tactical retreat.

Inverse is the Heir of Blood

Mage of Blood

The Mage of Blood is emotionally very very high strung. They’ll cry and get angry and frustrated about everything, except for the things that matter. In those cases they closed off and hate talking about it. They view their real emotions as weak and don’t feel as though they would be valid if they spoke about them. They have low self esteem and their only humor seems to be of other people, but if people make fun of them they get upset and hurt. Despite all that they are surprisingly good listeners and know what a good friendship needs. They can give very good solid advice to others, but can’t seem to follow it. For powers, I feel they could enhance the powers or moves of two people with strong bonds, create literal chains that they can use against people, and have a light control over blood itself.

Lessons:

  • Mage: You may want to be completely independent from others and only reliant on yourself, but you need to learn to let people in and to lean on them when your not strong. You may also be completely be codependent and clingy and need to learn to function on your own. 
  • Blood: You’re a bit oversensitive to everything which alienates people from you since you’re always seeming to get upset at them. There’s nothing wrong with being a sensitive person, but sometimes you need to learn when to just let it go. 
  • Mage of Blood: Honestly, learn how to take your own advice and open up to others about your feelings. You’ll find that your much calmer. Also, don’t dish what you can’t take.

Inverse is the Heir of Breath

Mage of Void

Mage of Void (Understander of Obusification) has a deep understanding of the horrorterrors and anything that comes along with the void. They would probably be speaking to them even, but completely unaffected by them. This godtier would probably not give a shit about much and have a pessimistic attitude. They would probably be the person who lived a life that was pretty empty and plays lots of video games and does nothing else. Horror and gore don’t even make them flinch. The Mage of Void could tell the difference between the lie and the truth and would be an expert at lying and sarcasm as well.They would pretty much hate themselves though for the way they act, but do nothing to stop it because they feel like it’s useless.

Lessons:

  • Mage: Even though life makes it rough for you, and it may feel like there’s not much to you, you can’t hate yourself, okay? You learn to accept who you are and that who you are is okay!
  • Void: You tend to be an introverted person who is closed off. You can become bitter because you feel people don’t understand you or feel forgotten. You may or may not blame the rest of the world for this, but it’s up to you to put yourself out there.
  • Mage of Void: You need to open up to the people around and realize that there is something worth fighting and changing for. Find that something. Help your team in only way you can, and be the person you want to be.

Mage of Light

The Mage of Light is one of the unluckiest, like maybe they have never gotten a paper cut, but they can’t seem to keep friends. They are incredibly awkward and throw themselves in to social situations, but no one wants to be around them and they are incredibly chatty. And they talk about one subject that is kind of mundane, for hours. And always seem to come off as a creep to people despite practicing how to be a charming person. They never seem to get quite right. They hate this about themselves, but it’s probably because they are spending so much time trying to be something they don’t to try to be. For powers I can imagine them being able to make magic beams of light, weighted die, and having minor control of luck.

Lessons:

  • Mage: Even though life makes it rough for you, and it may feel like there’s not much to you, you can’t hate yourself, okay? You learn to accept who you are and that who you are is okay!
  • Light: You may seem like a naturally cold person at times, not because you are unfriendly, but because you are distant and objective. You see the information as the facts and make judgments like that. But that method is not perfect, learn to let your emotions flow naturally into your view, not to cloud it but to fill it in with more information.
  • Mage of Light: Stop trying to be quirky and cool, because you already that you just need to let people see that. 

Inverse is the Heir of Void

Mage of Heart

Mage of Heart (Understander of Souls) will end up having a deep understanding of people as individuals, emotions, and romance. After they go through hell and back of course. These unlucky individuals are the hopeless romantics who are in love with romance yet for some reason it never seems to work in their favor. They will go through horrible heartbreak and probably get physically dinged up along the way. The canon example of a Mage of Heart, Meulin Leijon, didn’t exactly get the chance to live up to her title due to her character development being stunted by death. Now she lives as a stunted Mage of Heart, forever shipping without correct understanding. The MoH is typically sweet and earnest, if a bit overbearing at first since they insist their ideas about the romance in the party are best. They always mean well though. Through all of their heartbreaks they might end up thinking there’s something wrong with them but they can’t lose Heart! (I’m so sorry about the pun. Not.) Through all their heartbreak they will come to an understanding of their aspect.

Lessons:

  • Mage: Even though life makes it rough for you, and it may feel like there’s not much to you, you can’t hate yourself, okay? You learn to accept who you are and that who you are is okay!
  • Heart: Learn to be less sensitive about everything, or remember that emotions are necessary and don’t be afraid to open your heart.
  • Mage of Heart: Even though things will be rough and your heart will be broken horribly, don’t lose yourself. You are your own person without somebody else defining you. All your sorrow will give you a deep understanding of your aspect.

Inverse is the Heir of Mind

Mage of Mind

The Mage of Mind is an interesting one, in fact they probably act the most pompous out of all the Mages. And its not just an act, they honestly do believe that they are the smartest in the room. (Points to anyone who gets that reference.) They are also incredibly intelligent to go with all that, they are analytical and have a very strong moral code that they hold themselves and everyone else to. They talk constantly and unfortunately, know exactly what they are talking about. But emotionally, they are a fucking idiot. And they hate it. They have no idea how to interact with other people despite having a solid knowledge on how people tick. Heck, they can pinpoint the best strategies and timelines but they don’t know how to listen and respect others. And they hate it so much. For powers, they have very light mind control powers, more like mind suggestion. They have the ability to read minds and speak telepathically.

Lessons: 

  • Mage: Even though life makes it rough for you, and it may feel like there’s not much to you, you can’t hate yourself, okay? You learn to accept who you are and that who you are is okay!
  •  Mind: Being the intelligent and clever person you are you’ll either end up too arrogant and alienate people around you, or dumb yourself down and not being able to recognize your potential. Make sure to balance that.
  • Mage of Mind: Learn to be humble and respectful of others. It’s okay to be awkward and bad with emotions, but it’s not okay to be rude to others. To understand emotions more, listen to others and learn from others.

Inverse is the Heir of Heart

Mage of Life

Mage of Life (Understander of Energy) is a huge clutz. They are constantly bouncing around with energy and getting themselves into some trouble because of it. They don’t really know how to bake at first despite loving it, but they eventually learn how to and it becomes how they express themselves and vent out negative energy. They will be very laidback about life and not know where there going at first, but this comes from their inner turmoil that they try to mask. They might feel that they know what’s best for their friends but sometimes they need to just let their friends live their own lives. For physical powers they might have like magic powers involving the earth, and eventually magical baking powers.

Lessons:

  • Mage: You might hate yourself since life doesn’t seem to work in your favor and the things you love always get fucked up. But you can’t let the bad things in your life control who you are, let them form you into a better person not define who you are.
  • Life: You probably stopped caring about where your life is going and are just settling for whatever you get. You don’t go out and take what you want and that’s dangerous. Don’t be satisfied for the the subpar just because you don’t know what you want or are too scared to get it.
  • Mage of Life: You may never pretend to be someone you’re not but you repress a lot of who you really are because you don’t like it. There’s nothing wrong with not knowing what you want but you can’t live like that forever. And you can’t get bitter because everyone else has found their happiness, you just need to reach out and grab yours.

Mage of Doom

The Mage of Doom is the most self deprecating, lowest self esteemed, emotionally volatile of all the Mages. They hate the world, and the world kind of hates them back. Their lives genuinely fucking suck, and it’s honestly no fault of theirs in some ways. Life keeps throwing giant ass fucking lemons made of brick. They are though, intelligent and incredibly caring people. When they love someone they love them with all the fibers in their being and will do anything for them. They understand sacrifice, and are willing to risk everything for their team. Even if their team fucking sucks. They’ll follow you through hell in back, with only mild complaining. For powers… I’m guessing what powers Sollux would have, and I’m guessing some might be creating literal fire powers and they ability to create like magic rays of death and disease. As well as minor control of the fate of those around them.

Lessons:

  • Mage: You might hate yourself since life doesn’t seem to work in your favor and the things you love always get fucked up. But you can’t let the bad things in your life control who you are, let them form you into a better person not define who you are.
  • Doom: You are often stressed out and/or have some serious anxiety issues due to a feeling of impending doom that may or may not be unfounded. Don’t let those feelings control your actions, but don’t forget that your cautiousness can guide you. 
  • Mage of Doom: You need to like, chill the fuck out. I know this is gonna sound shitty, but in order to change anything about your life your gonna need to get a better attitude. And stop sacrificing yourself every chance you get it’s not healthy my man. Also, learn to have some self worth. It’ll be hard but honestly there is no other to get you out of that mess.
