Oh my god, Vriska. You are crazy, and you are crazy in love with John. Jegus.
Oh my god, Vriska. You are crazy, and you are crazy in love with John. Jegus.
WV is the worst at communicating.
Also wtf tasty fire.
I bet Vriska is so fucking proud right now.
Oh shit what is the black stuff coming off of her. I am pretty sure it wasn’t there before. And why doesn’t Dave seem to care at all?
So was Jade: Strife!!!!!!!! some kind of troll? Because it just kept going on and on and on and eventually I got bored and just hit the next link.
If that was a troll, mean!
Now we know why the ship blew a hole in it! Because Becsprite.
And Becsprite seems to not be evil, regardless of his power. Yay!
That face is something I see in my nightmares.
I aspire to some day be as chill as Dave.
Actually, if I could be as chill as any of the kids. I would be huddled in a corner going, “Oh shit oh shit oh shit” over again, and then an imp would probably kill me dead. They accepted the apocalypse and their universe saving missions with incredible grace.
Well holy shit. No wonder they’ll be using the green star to kill Jack, then. Soooooooo. I’m guessing that Jack is responsible for killing the Gods of the Furthest Ring, and that’s why they want to guide Dave to the green sun because they want Jack dead too.
I may have spent the last half hour learning about why green stars don’t exist in our universe.
I could just click the link and find out, but I’m betting that I’m not going to find out what John needs to be successful at! Just a feeling I’ve gotten.
Rose must fit in with the trolls so well.
And I was wrong! Totally did get to find out.
I had 100% not expected the Tumor to be a bomb.
Still not sure why their session was specifically not meant to “bear fruit”. Everybody seems to know it, and that its true, but I don’t think I’ve seen it elaborated on. Why make the game at all if the session is doomed to failure?
I am 100% not okay with this.
So not okay with this that I am shocked out of even commenting on Doc Scratch giving Rose information and wanting to die.
Just…No Rose, you can’t die, I love you.
I mean, I guess she does have a dream-self still, so there’s that. But NOT OKAY WITH THIS.
FUCK YOU ROSE.
But at least you won’t be dying.
God, Eridan, you immature child. Of course he demanded a wand, why not? I’m sure that will end just wonderfully for everyone.
I’m going to need the trolls to stop thinking, “This is inevitable, therefore I should get involved!” Uncool and unhelpful, guys. You’re just making things worse!
Vriska, please stop trying to help! You’re not trying to be a villain anymore but you’re still ruining everything!
I want Karkat to find out about all this, just for the explosion of rage.
Hey look, it’s a Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff joke that I understand!
Somebody needs to get Tavros an elevator.
“Heir Transparent” made me laugh. Especially since he’s the heir of breath.
It’s adorable how none of the salamanders realize the Heir is right in front of them. Even when John accidentally tells them he’s the heir.
[In between those pictures is the salamander saying that only the Heir can wake the Slumbering One but I didn’t screencap that]
We’re finally close to the Denizen! I am so so so excited. It’ll probably be like another thousand pages before we get to see it, though, at the rate this story moves.
That looks like the world’s most uncomfortable bed. Seriously, it’s got cracks in it, it’s a stone bed, the fuck. Is the quest going to be getting comfortable?
Well, now we know why Earth sucks so much. The trolls made terrible choices.
GODDAMMIT VRISKA I KNOW YOU CAN SEE THAT COMING, WHY DID YOU PUT JOHN TO SLEEP RIGHT THEN? Even if he asked you too! Some fairy god troll you are.
So fucking tired of your shit, Vriska, I swear to god. Letting John get stabbed is not how you make him a better hero.
Okay apparently letting John get stabbed is how you make him a better hero. But you could have fucking explained that!
I have pretty much no comment on the whole Dave/Terezi conversation about Dave ascending to Godhood by killing some splinter timeline Dave because all the talk of time travel and splinter timelines and paradox space maybe killing the other Dave, and doing some physics homework, has pretty much melted my brain.
Well, Vriska isn’t going to be happy to hear about that.
[Next page is literally Vriska laying bleeding and possibly dead.]
HE’S THE PAGE OF BREATH AND HE’S DOING A WINdY THING.
And Vriska’s last action was to choke him.
Okay I am putting up almost this entire sequence because it is so fucking cool.
Vriska is dying because Aradia beat the shit out of her, so she possesses Tavros and has him write out messages to himself. Then she makes him take her to her quest bed so that she can die there and enter the god tier.
So I guess Aradia more or less played right into Vriska’s hands, since this benefits Vriska and ends up being a fairly shitty form of revenge.
I get the feeling that aside from having incredibly questionable judgment and being really mean, Vriska does care about people. She could just make Tavros kill her, which would get her what she wants and make Tavros suffer, but she actually wants him to make the decision. And her dream self is getting more and more covered in blood, but she’s still not taking his will!
I kind of adore Vriska. I just would never ever ever want to ever interact with her.
Oh, Tavros, baby, you poor thing. Now I feel bad for judging you for acting like a bit of a wuss. Of course you did, you’re like 13 and your friend (er, ish?) told you to kill her. By making you write with her blood. Ouch.
Vriska’s god tier form is really pretty.
Well that’s a special new level of mad for Karkat. And we’ve seen him really mad before.
I’d kind of assumed Dave was helping her build the killer bunny. But her grandson? My mind is totally bent right now!
Noooo, Aradia, I liked you!
I also feel bad for Equius. He was gross and sweaty and kinky, but as far as I know Aradia never said buy to him or anything, and that is sad. He just watched as his girlfriend(?) hugged another guy and then exploded.
Did doomed alternate timeline Dave really just get killed sliiiightly off to the side of his quest bed, thus depriving him of godmode?
I am still really upset about Bro’s death and Dave just doesn’t seem to care much at all.
“Camaraderie among ironic rapping roof ninjas.”
Most important character in Homestuck, huh? I mean, the link to the next page implies that it’s Lord English, but…
Jadesprite is so cute! And almost as cool as Davesprite!
But oh god why do things have to keep being sad? Too many feelings right now. :(
The Jade and Jadesprite argument was suuuuper frustrating, so lets skip that.
Whee, character development! For Karkat and Jade both. I for one am so happy to see Karkat finally taking responsibility for his past actions.
Jade and Jadesprite kissing totally deserves its own post. Is kissing one’s prototyped dreamself masturbatory, or incestuous?
Man, I can’t blame her. That is a lot. Also, I don’t think you can rebuild a kingdom with four (soon to be five) people. Unless WQ’s posse is still around somewhere.
WHAT A DARING DREAM
TO COMBINE THE FINEST QUALITIES OF HUMANITY WITH THE ELEGANCE AND NOBILITY OF THE ANIMAL KINGDOM
HOW YOU WISH YOU COULD KNOW THEIR WORLD
TO HEAR ONE NIGHT THOSE MUTED PAWPADS TRAIPSE UP YOUR STAIRS
A LOW BUT FRIENDLY GROWL UNSETTLES YOUR SLUMBER
AND AS THE SOPOR SEEPS FROM YOUR EYES
THEY DETECT A SHARP PAIR OF EARS CUTTING MOONLIGHT
A MYSTERIOUS WOLVEN TONGUE INVITES
WOULDN’T THESE EARS SUIT YOU ?
WOULD NOT THIS PROUD LONG SNOUT ASSIST YOU IN THE HUNT ?
Running WV’s dream through a morse code translator ended with some seriously creepy poetry.
OMG Vriska, seriously, you’re telling WV not to use the ring to kill Jack because you want to?
I doubt you’re just being biased! She seems very well written, I’m sure there’s a lot of stuff that I’ll find once I look back. I really love her as a character, and it’s really hard to judge most of the things she does considering she’s 13. I imagine lots of 13-year-olds would act like her if they had super powers.
OH FUCKING FUCK.
On the long list of things I didn’t need to see, Feferi getting sliced in half and Nepeta getting stabbed a bunch were at the top.
I love how Terezi is just sitting there, chilling. And then WOOMPH Tavros corpse.
Bladekindeyewear told me that people photoshopped the trolls’ rainbow blood into red blood and it looked super gristly, but shit, even with orange blood I am super disturbed by the picture of Tavros’s corpse close up.
That said, I’m guessing Tavros just landed on his quest bed, somehow. That seems like a Vriska thing to do–to be totally helpful in the WORST WAY POSSIBLE.
I could be totally wrong though, maybe she did just kill the poor kid.
Frogs. Jade’s job is to breed frogs. This frog thing is really weird.
Okay, now this is just getting silly.
The frog is the universe? Come on.
Me: Oh yeah! A video, I can watch that, make an audio response, and then go study! This is perfect.
Me, moments later: Shit, it’s a video, now I have to quit or not study for another half hour.
