i just started fucking laughing because i remembered how the homestuck fandom kept talking about how “the last hiatus we made homestuck into an anime i wonder what we’re gonna do now!!!” and they all just fucking left the fandom
i made this in commemoration of the incredible events that transpired this day
god bless you, andrew hussie
Íæûë€Å never forget
it’s been almost two years since Íæûë€Å now
do you remember where YOU were when Íæûë€Å?
the only reason i see rose and dave as the only whities in the cast is bc i see them as the ultimate example of white teen suburbia. an “”“”intellectual”“”” goth and a 13 year old rapper with internet access.
when vriska insulted and demeaned eridan, it made him want to fight back and prove her wrong and make himself better in order to spite her; their rivalry pushed them to be better than they were
when gamzee insults and demeans terezi, she feels like she deserves it and it serves no purpose except to push her lower and keep her trapped in a web of self-loathing and completely at his mercy
and that friends is the difference between a kismessisitude and abuse
how do you pick/decide on horns?
like I know they tend to follow similar shapes to signs and others do it because that horn shape appeals to them and they fill in the other details later
but…how do you guys make that decision in the first place?
like where do you get your ideas and then pick which one you’ll wind up using?
i base my fantrolls around a theme or a pair of themes. for instance, bel is a combo of ‘roman britain’ and ‘don quixote’, and the roman heraldic eagle ended up providing his lusus, his sign, and, indirectly, his horns — they’re meant to suggest the spine and outer curve of a feather. pancho’s themes are ‘forest’ and ‘medic’, so her horns look like trees arching over a path. keep it loose, just a suggestion rather than a literal depiction.
not that i always do it that way. jethro has cute little forward-pointing moo-cow horns because idek, i thought they were funny. :D
my pet peeve is impossibly convoluted horns that could not possibly have grown out of a head, would keep the troll from having the hairstyle they have, and/or would be stabbing the troll in the face constantly. i tell you what, if MY horns were shaped like a chinese character or something and the point was hooked up under my chin, i would saw those motherfuckers OFF. D:
My fantroll-sona’s horns are bighorn ram horns, because my human name means sheep and I liked the over-the-top arrogance of giving her a really fuck-off huge improbable rack and nothing about her isn’t arrogant or over-the-top. Sometimes you just have to do something cool instead of something sensible.
if my fantrolls horns dont serve a higher visual comedic purpose in their design, i try again.
