So it’s already one year ago since I started this blog and via this post I want to thank al the amazing mutuals and blogs that I follow! You guys are the absolute best and one of the main reasons why I love it to be on tumblr. Of course I did not forget about the rest of my followers. I’ll be celebrating 1.6k followers, more details on that will be mentioned in my next post! ♥︎
How to Become Homestuck Trash: A Guide for the Uninitiated
Step 1: Have friends who are already Homestuck trash
This step is essential to becoming Homestuck trash. Let your trashy friends tell you about how amazing Homestuck is. The feels, the memes, the deaths, the glory, the confusion, how it redefines the webcomic medium with flash sections and a soundtrack.
(If you don’t have trashy Homestuck friends this step can be replaced with seeing cool cosplays or fanart on tumblr)
This should get you curious enough to move on to the next step.
@airquietworks said: Which members of Class 1A would actually get into it?
(in regards to the post I made about Eri liking My Little Pony and making Class 1-A watch it with her)
Excellent question! Let’s examine that shall we (keep in mind that I’m talking about the latest iteration, Friendship Is Magic, because it’s the only one I am familiar with to any degree):
@hatefilledpoptarts Posited that Bakugou would get pretty into the mythos of the show, but not so much like the show itself. He does have a lot of theories though and isn’t happy about it. He subtly reminds her about when to watch and that he guesses he’ll watch it with her if she really wants him to. If you twist his arm he’ll admit that some of the season final episodes had pretty good fights.
Izuku would be pretty into it, even like it, Mythos and all, though mostly for the benefit of keeping up with Eri while he’s watching it with her. He likes the animation and the lessons and the music, he thinks he would have really liked it as a kid if he didn’t only watch All-might related stuff back then. Eri said that he reminds her of Twilight Sparkle and that she’s her favorite, he considers it a compliment.
Ochako would be really into it, she’s always one of the first to join Eri on the couch whenever a episode comes on. They sing the songs together both during and after the episodes. They sing the Cupcake song every time they cook something together in the kitchen, even if it isn’t cupcakes. She really likes Applejack.
Tsuyu is used to watching little kids shows with her younger siblings, so she sits down and watches without any complaining, even enjoying herself. She’s the first one Eri comes to whenever she wants to talk about the show, since Tsuyu is a good listener when it comes to that kinda thing.
Iida would commend the show for aspiring to teach young children valuable lessons in cooperation and friendship. The show itself kinda stumps him though, he just keeps getting stuck on the fact that its a bunch of talking horses. The irony that he’s seen some pretty weird things in his life is lost on him. He admires Twilight’s dedication for studding though.
As for Momo, she tries her darnedest, but she just…doesn’t get it, she still sits down with Eri without complaining though.
Kouda would love Fluttershy, of course he would, he is Fluttershy. They both have pet rabbits even!
Kirishima would be glued to his seat along side Ochako, showing no shame what so ever in watching and enjoying a children’s cartoon, in a different world he might have even called himself a brony….but that’s neither here nor there. Rainbow Dash is his absolute favorite.
Kaminari wouldn’t really get the show honestly, he thinks the Pegasus ponies are kinda cool though, “I would make an awesome Pegasus.”
Same thing for Kyouka, she was never really into that super cutesy stuff even when she was young enough for it. She does like the music though, just not the musical numbers, just some of the background tracks are really cool in her opinion.
Aoyama would find his spirit animal in Rarity, every episode where she is the main focus has his full attention. The rest is just okay in his eyes.
Mina and Hagakure would be all over this show, thinking its the cutest thing ever and just loving it. They’d probably watch episodes online whenever they have the time and not just with Eri. Pinkie Pie steals their hearts within two minutes of screen time.
Todoroki would be just as lost as Momo, he likes the songs though!
Same for Ojirou, he just smiles and nods whenever Eri gushes about the show and just kinda zones out whenever he’s watching it with the rest, having given up on actually understanding it.
Tokoyami actually really likes it, but would not admit it even under threat of death, his edgelord pride would not stand for it. He’s still miffed that Sombra barely did anything before being defeated.
Sero and Shouji and Satou just think its okay.
Nobody cares what Mineta thinks.
But whatever they think of the show, every single week without fail, they all gather in the common room and watch the newest episode with Eri. Even if they don’t like it, the smile she gives off whenever she watches and when she thanks them for coming when it’s over is always worth it.
Bonus: Izuku and Bakugou talking about the show when ever they take a break from training:
“I still think Discord turning good was a load of crap.”
“I thought it was sweet! Fluttershy just appealed to his better nature.”
“He is the freaking spirit of chaos and disharmony for fuck’s sake! What part of that makes it sound like he’d have a better fucking nature, Deku?”
“Disharmony is not the same thing as evil! He still causes trouble, just without hurting anybody!”
“Whatever, I still call bullshit, people just don’t turn nice just because you give them a stern fucking talking to and offer to be their friend.”
“You would know that huh Kacchan…”
“FUCK DID YOU JUST SAY FUCKING DEKU!?”
“NOTHING! Hey look at the time! Better get going!”
“Get back here so I can love and tolerate the shit out of you!”
