Anyway if you ask me, Hiveswap’s fandom should be flooding Shelby’s inbox with gratitude for speaking up, and also being involved with the damn writing of Joey in the first place.
It’s clear to me she was strongly involved in the development of Joey and that she and women like her were strongly consulted to source Joey’s writing.
WP deserves gratitude for that as a whole, but Shelby SPECIFICALLY deserves gratitude for being the voice of confirmation for that creative intent and for living or just closely closely knowing the experience Hiveswap is putting to screen.
I know MORE about the lesbian experience than I did before thursday thanks to Shelby, and I’m grateful.
A Eulogy for all the Homestuck ships that didn't make it.
Sunk by a meme. Tragic.
Sunk by a violent stabbing, also Tragic.
JadeJohn and DaveRose:
Goddamn, Hussie pulled a George Lucas on us there. "You like that ship? Well they're related now, whoopsie!"
Well, you'll always have A03 at least.
The forgotten Beta ship. You were cute.
You were a thing apparently? Well the fanart was cute.
You'll always have the Shelby Cragg AU's at least.
I have so many sad and complicated feelings towards you. It's hard and nobody understands.
There was so much unexplored potential and too much offscreen development.
Never liked you, but you deserved better than a bunch of people throwing a fit over a t-shirt.
I'll miss the <3<, and your Sprite.
God remember that anon that really really really hated this ship? Remember the harassment and gore submissions? That shit was wild... and creepy. Don't do this over fictional relationships kids.
Never saw that one coming did we?
I will Remem8er You!
Confirmed? Sunk? Aw well, you had a good run.
"We coulda had it aaaaaaall"
A foot note in the backstory that could have been explored more.
Sunk offscreen no less! A true shame.
Retconned out of existence and the two don't even talk anymore. Ouch.
Fuck all of you this was cute.
Sigh. Rest in Peace Vriskan, may the shippers sing you to your grave.
Wow, that was an odd couple wasn't it?
