Can I just say I have a bad feeling about this update?  Like remember the recent update where Meenah and Vriska were laughing and frolicking through the bubble they’re currently in?  Remember how everyone was freaking out because you could literally see paradox space breaking behind them?  Remember how there are horses literally everywhere in that bubble (presumably due to Hussie’s presence)?  Remember one of the main rules of Homestuck involving those exact creatures?  “NOTHING GOOD CAN EITHER FOLLOW OR PRECEDE AN EVENT SUCH AS THIS.“ to quote Caliborn.  We saw the background fade to black at the end of this new update, a dramatic choice that we see when Hussie like to make us suffer with leaving the cuties to fend for themselves.  Well, with the horses gone, it can not only be presumed that Hussie’s dead self left that, but also that something bad could follow their exit.  It doesn’t help that just a few updates before, (Vriska) said she no longer really thought that the horses were creepy.  She tell Meenah, and I quote, “(VRISKA): So yeah, horses are ok in my 8ook.”  Something tells me that Hussie the author isn’t going to let this slide, that that was not only character growth, but also foreshadowing.  Hussie is going to show what happens when his own character forgets a main rule of Homestuck.

Meenah, unless the windows Vriska used can also let dead souls out of dream bubbles (a usually impossible feet, according to Aradia) is going to need to get her life back in order to do what she’s leaving (Vriska) to do.  She is a Thief of Life, meaning she could literally steal someone’s life to give to herself.  And the only two alive people that she can utilize her title are Vriska and, if you all remember from the day after the Peixes-Serket character select update when you hovered over it, Aradia.  So either Meenah’s gonna backstab Vriska or Meenah’s gonna fuck up the character that both doesn’t give a shit about death and will fuck you up if you try and take her life away again.  And given that this Aradia appeared to be alone, I’d wager a guess that this was GO!Aradia, aka the one who traveled with the half-dead-turned-alive Sollux and went on the trip for the house juju with (Vriska), so who even knows what’s going to happen there.

I am really not looking forward to tomorrow’s update if you couldn’t tell…
