I don’t think I posted these!!!! But @snailboyy did me some bonus sketches based on“When You Fell” which was just about the nicest thing. (Personal fave after the one on the far right is the very faint scarred-back sketch on the underlayer!)
still don't really know those words, but at least you didn't call me fat
It's okay sir, I'll explain it to him later...
Not sir, my boy, call me "Hal" or "Dad 2.0" as you young people would say, if you like!!! Anyway, AS I WAS SAYING....I knew your dad in high school, my future son-in-law....when I was a Southside Serpent, myself. Nothing to judge, there. Please stay for dinner, Jughead. Please leave and never return, Archie.
I heard people enjoy shipping random Striders and Vantases together (I believe most of that is @polyglotplatypus‘ doing, because of those comics) and I want you guys to look me in the eye and find a single reason that Kankri and a literal autoresponder made to do nothing but talk is not the single worst ship in history, and somehow simultaneously /painfully/ made for each other.
I blame @hexstuck for this crack ship of the two biggest pricks in the entirety of homestuck.
dirk being a Good Big Brother™ and being super protective of his younger siblings in general. he’s the type to go out and tear their bullies to pieces okay–no one touches dirk’s brothers or his sisters
the odd on out and often exception to this rule, understandably enough, is hal. he’s always been a self-sufficient sort of guy, so dirk doesnt exactly… coddle him like he does the other’s? and of course hal takes that as an insult because he takes this as a sign of dirk disliking him or even worse, being indifferent towards him and it sits heavily with him in a way he absolutely hates
Hal is very bad at this whole ‘sharing’ thing you see. it’s hard and very confusing, sharing dirk with dave and davis. its even harder sharing dave and davis with dirk and just

I’m absolutely in love with the idea of Snake and Otacon’s separate interests mingling together once they grow closer. Snake likes to poke fun at Otacon’s anime but loves to watch it with him and they bicker about character arcs and stuff.
Meanwhile otacon normally wouldn’t have touched 70s and 80s sci fi because he thought it was all dumb camp and cheese but then he finds he grows to have an uncomfortable level of knowledge about Battlestar Galactica and The Thing.
by the time MGS2 rolls around, he knows enough that the second he and Snake get home he makes a beeline for their VHS collection and takes Escape from New York and threatens to throw it away because of how awful Iroquois Pliskin was as an alias. snake is just like “I panicked, okay? Jesus Hal, you try to make up something on the spot. You’re the one who goes by Otacon.”
Hal and Bruce hooking up but not getting serious. Hal still doesn’t know who Bruce is but he WANTS to be with him but god fucking DAMNIT Batmans an ass. Then after being nosy he confronts Bruce and
JUST ADMIT IT THE REAL REASON YOU CANT BE SERIOUS ABOUT ME IS BECAUSE YOURE DATING BRUCE WAYNE and holy fuck okay Hal thinking Batman and Bruce are a couple would make my life like its a canon thing in the DCU already that people have assumed that and WHY WOULD HAL NEED TO LOOK DEEPER INTO IT BATMAN SCREWING BRUCE EXPLAINS SO MUCH
