this is my contribution to the homestuck fandom

hello! I just wanted to take the time to say that I very much admire the insight and essays you offer to the Homestuck fandom! it's incredibly refreshing and enlightening to read about things from such a distinct and detailed viewpoint such as yours. I haven't been too active in this fandom for a little while now, but since discovering your blog I feel as though I'm learning so much more about things. thank you so much for your amazing intellectual contributions!

Thank you, that means a lot. My contributions are mostly only the sum of all the awesome people that have influenced me and talked to me and expanded my ideas of what homestuck is about, so don’t praise me too much. What I produce is ultimately the byproduct of the community effort of the entire Homestuck fandom, in my view. 

Also, I’ve made some fascinating breakthroughs today. The stuff I’m going to write about soon has me extremely excited–fandom readings of Homestuck are going to come into a whole new extreme.

Also, just a mention? I’ve got like over 1000 followers now. If 1000 people decided to throw me a buck on patreon, I could immediately work on content full time at way higher quality than what I currently am capable of. I’m not like begging or whatever but if you like what I do then I want people to know there’s a lot more of it than I have any hope of being able to put out quickly enough to my satisfaction at my current rate, so. Spreading me around so more people know about what I’m up to would really help me out. And not to be smug but I think it’ll lead to a healthier overall fandom, too. 

People who liked the Gamzee post I just put out and my post on Dammek are in for an unprecedented ride soon. I hope I’ve built up enough credibility in this audience’s eyes that my being bold enough to say so will have you guys excited and hopeful for it, instead of just making me come off like an arrogant tool. Anyway, I’m really excited, personally.

See you guys soon. Keep rising.

I’m sorry for any contribution to the discourse that i added. I often forget that i have an audience (it’s so fucking weird to have an audience), and i forget that words can have as much power as they do.

Even some poorly thought out ones like “arrogant much”

While i still disagree with your opinions, i do not believe in any way that you deserve to be hated upon or sent rude messages.

That was never my intent.

For a mind player, i wasn’t thinking very clearly, because if i was, my contribution to the original post would have been one to spark a peaceful discussion, instead of sparking more and more discourse.


The homestuck fandom is too small nowadays for discourse like this, it’ll tear us apart if we let it.

So…
Yeah…
I’m sorry.

so over break when sai wouldn’t work on me i watched too much parks and rec. i say the fandom should make parks-n-recstuck a thing and this is my contribution
