INTP Love

(Official Disclaimer)

Chill, cute, and cool. Who doesn’t love the INTP? You guys are my buddies, my nerdy friends, my sidekicks. I need you in my life.

One of the coolest things about you is how relaxed and confident you appear all. the. time. If ENTJs have no chill, INTPs have all the chill. Like, seriously. That’s amazing. I don’t even know how you do that. But I appreciate it. Like you’re the kind of person I can just lowkey hang out with all day despite the fact that we’ve never met before. And you’ll probably try to pay for my food, too.

I love that we don’t have to be constantly talking. Like you’re down with companionable silence.

You have an odd flair for drama, which is great because you can totally act (HOW?! I would never, ever suspect that of you! Wonderful surprise!)

You’re non judgmental (at least, not out loud) and honestly that’s great, it’s gonna take you far.

You’re above gossip and pettiness, which is so excellent I can’t even describe it. Please hang out with me more, I need that kind of coolness around me.

You’re hilarious when you want to be. Plus you can probably rock aviator sunglasses.

You can be playful and serious at the same time, which is rare.

The INTP might be the only sane person left after a long meeting, stressful event, or company shakedown. You don’t stress out a lot.

It’s cool to be your friend. Very relaxing to be around you. Plus you crack me up. Lots of good mojo.

Can you think of a good example of a non-villainous rage hero? I know you've already talked a lot about how no aspect is inheritely bad, and having a familiar example might help other people see what you mean by this, but so far most of the characters mentioned as probably Rage heroes seemed to be viewed either negatively or as villains.

well a big one that I can think of is Bruce Banner aka the Hulk, who is a Maid of Rage, another slightly less serious one is the Soldier from TF2 being a Sylph of Rage

the ideas of being angry, afraid, stubborn, cautious, paranoid, stoic are not inherently villainous traits because they are not inherently bad things to be, but I think a lot of people do have trouble seeing “good” characters inhabiting those traits

but if you think about it, all of those things can be spun as a person being Passionate, Righteous, Only concerned about Justice and Morality and not budging on those concepts, having an immovably strong moral ground, the idea of unshatterable strength in any form, a perfect shield/defense, an ultimate protector, someone who instinctually jumps onto the front line infront of someone else. All of which are inherently Heroic Ragey ideals

which reminds me of a really old post about the Aspects differing types of Leaderships I made a long time ago, where Rage’s was Protective Leadership, or Leadership by Authority

it was the idea that in emergency situations, people will naturally elect or flock to a person they see as embodying traits of unshakeableness, dependability, strength or expertise, and give that person a lot of authority over everyone in that situation, examples would be Firefighters, Doctors, Police, Disaster Relief, Military etc anything we would consider an “emergency” position, or it can be simply the person with the most expertise/dependability in situations like a group of people being trapped somewhere

so basically this is how I embody a truly Heroic Rage hero in homestuck, the people we naturally flock to in emergencies, and those with unshakeable protective instincts and strengths, stubborn, truly moral and righteous

its where all of these things go bad is where we get Villains, but the good interpretations of these things naturally give us Heroes

The Power Of Mabel: Silliness

Okay, I can’t sleep and it’s 1am so I’m gonna tell you about how I cried the first time I watched Irrational Treasure.

Mabel’s silliness is one of the first things you notice about her–her first spoken line is “Yaaaay! Grass!” which still cracks me up even though I’ve seen the episode like twenty times. She’s goofy and weird and likes hamming things up and she’s completely unapologetic about it!

Mabel’s silly in a way that girls in fiction are very seldom allowed to be. She’s loud. She takes up space. She makes ridiculous faces and weird noises and is the one to inject levity into dangerous situations.

Real girls who are like Mabel are often told we need to settle down, that we need to stop goofing around if we want to accomplish anything. A lot of Mabel’s character traits (her enthusiasm, her optimism, her good opinion of herself) are things that I’ve seen girls have systemically drilled out of them–these things may be permissible in children, but when you get older you need to stop. You need to grow up. No one will take you seriously.

That’s why it’s so important that Mabel keeps being silly and enthusiastic and optimistic all the way through the series. She does grow, but she doesn’t sacrifice herself in the process. She doesn’t need to.

Irrational Treasure was an early taste of that. Mabel was mocked for her silliness, and it hurt her, but she ended the episode stronger and more confident in herself. The first time I watched the episode, part of me was afraid it was going to tear her down, and when it became clear that it was doing the opposite I really truly cried. Mabel learned that her silliness could accomplish things that Dipper’s brains couldn’t. She was validated for being silly and weird. I’ve never seen a girl get a storyline like that before. More of them should.

Falling to Storm

  • Jason got a lot of good traits from his father, but also many unfortunate ones as well.
  • He was abusive, he never wanted to, but he was a child of Jupiter, not Zeus harshness, militarism, strength they were all in his nature
  • He was also war torn and confused and angry and he didn’t know why which made the abuse worse. There was nothing anyone could do, once you cross that line of mental wreckage there’s no return.
  • Mainly, Jason inherited his father’s infidelity.
  • Sure, things were fine for the first year or so, as it was in the beginning with Jupiter and Juno, but then he spiraled. While he was in New Rome something happened with a child of Apollo, no one knew,
  • No one knew about the child of Venus either or the one of Mars, or Ceres. It was always with Romans too, they were much less bound emotionally if something sexual happened. They had their bodies, used them to please themselves, but that didn’t mean marriage had to happen, with Piper always at Camp Half-Blood only meeting with Romans was the best way. 
  • It was working fine, until Piper asked Reyna to check up on him one night when he forgot to call her like they planned. He was caught and Reyna is no fool. She knew it wasn’t the first time and bound by honor and loyalty she forced herself to tell Piper. 
  • It wasn’t good, but children of Aphrodite are notorious for becoming destructive when cheated on or broken up with. Piper was powerful, but she was her mother’s child and only wanted to spread love not show how powerful hate was. 
  • So with her mother’s blessing she left to the sea where her mother emerged from. Percy took her to Poseidon’s palace with Annabeth as they were planning a trip that summer to go there anyways. 
  • They cut ties with Jason after Percy Iris messaged him to tell him how bad he messed up. “You’re powerful and reckless and you didn’t deserve her. Enjoy your time in New Rome, Jason, but I would think long and hard about coming back to Camp Half-Blood. If you ask for refuge we are bound to help you as a child Jupiter, but don’t expect friendship.” 
  • Percy’s fatal flaw was Personal Loyalty after all, not just how much he dedicated himself to it, but also how her responded to others not living by the same moral standards.
  • Jason couldn’t handle it, he had no where to go, he was almost 18 and was suddenly on his own. Even the Romans were disgusted at him, no one showed it, but he could never make a trip to town without getting tripped at least once. 
  • One day, he got a brick left at his doorstep. Attached to it was a note You protected her years ago from one of this kind. Would you still? -V
  • That night Jason soared up to the sky he tossed and flailed and cried out to the gods and to Piper and to all the people who cut ties with him weeks ago begging forgiveness.
  • He created a storm that San Fransisco had never seen before, the tide remained calm however. There were reports of a boy in an orange t-shirt standing on the water keeping the entire bay completely still, fighting against the wind battering the shore. 
  • Jason would never know the body count of his drunken rage. In all the midst of swirling winds, blinding strikes of lightning, and sharp, gusts of wind a rod of lightning struck him.
  • No one saw the strength of the diameter or the faint outline of a face in the sky as the boy was struck. No one, but Percy, the other boy who faced Jason’s rage and protected people and the girl who stood by his side who insisted to see what was actually happening when Poseidon sent his son to the surface to protect the mortals. 
  • The same girl who had her heart broken by the boy who fell from the sky.

How was that dark!Jason for you? Please don’t kill me, I know that it’s been forever, but I have been super busy! Anyways a couple nights ago there was a lighting storm that happened in the middle of the night and then there was this huge clap of thunder. After that I started to piece this together and I had some free time so here it is for you guys!!

Fiction that helps me: anything with complex, sympathetically portrayed androids or robots helps me. (Yes, it's cliché, but honestly, they're the best.) Data on Star Trek: The Next Generation is a good example for me. We have a lot of similar traits, and he is both competent at most aspects of life and fully accepted by his friends.

How do you feel about your own moon sign and its house placement? Do you relate to it a lot and what do you think are some "negative" traits you'd need to work on?

(I have a Taurus moon in the 5th for those who don’t know)
I do relate to it, but very heavily influenced by the rest of my chart - it makes me more level-headed, more gentle and patient, as well as more lighthearted and it helps me keep the naivety, curiosity, and big dreams of a child, yet I often roll my eyes at interpretations of Taurus moons. Like, if you were to offer me food when I’m down and think I’d be happy you’d fuck up big time lmao. I’m also stubborn, but not AS stubborn as a lot of other Taurus moons are.
There are a good deal of negative traits as well, but I’m currently in a phase where I’m working on myself a lot, I constantly try to better myself and lessen bad traits.
For example, my Taurus moon easily gives me a lot of anxiety and my self-worth is very fragile. My 5th house moon makes me prone to faking happiness when I’d need someone to be by my side, to “protect” my vulnerability behind a smile. I’ve been working on being more able to handle situations that would have made my Taurus moon anxious before, or to not let my self-worth be determined by my mood swings.
I also try not to repress my emotions as much anymore - that’s quite common with Taurus moons as well - and to step out of my comfort zone more. I still have to work on my laziness and my sometimes too carefree attitude lol

So I was doodling some more concepts of my interpretation of what I think might be Pearl and Steven’s Rainbow Quartz fusion, going off the design I made a while ago. From now on I think I’ll just refer to them as Rainbow Quartz Universe (using 2.0 doesn’t appeal to me and I cant think of anything else, heh). 

Anyways, I was just doodlin’ and wondering about what their weapon might be. I’m thinking batons that can revert back into Pearl’s spear, or combine with Steven’s shield to become a parasol, good for defense and counters, as well as sharp enough to cut. So basically two weapons… batons and parasol? With batons being the more offensive and the parasol being more defensive. 

I’m still brainstorming their personality, but I think RQU would have pretty good harmony. There are a lot of traits shared between Steven and Pearl, as well as opposing ones that can find a good middle ground together in a fusion.
