no, let them suffer
Okay, I’m going to take a gander at this.
(I have no idea why I was compelled to use that expression.)
Is “auto class” the same thing as driver’s education?
Hmm. Is part of it a “the screen is fried” pun?

Do you guys even realize that this is from the musical Chicago and /not/ Homestuck?
Not being a Chicago fan must be so confusing. That person is right. It’s R-O-X-I-E.
help i’m dying
i wonder how many of these reblogs are homestucks partially reblogging it for the commentary. this is literally hilarious.
And for those who are curious; this is literally both Homestuck AND Chicago. The girl there is Roxy Lalonde. She’s got pink eyes and blonde slightly curly hair, with a little curl right near her bangs. And the ‘O’ in ‘ROXY’ is made to have her godtier symbol in it. This is literally a crossover between Homestuck and Chicago.
It really must be confusing, not being a Homestuck. Especially when you blindly accuse others of making non-Homestuck things into Homestuck things, when the things were actually Homestuck things in the first place. There are several reasons why I spend less and less time on tumblr, and the false accusations towards Homestuck fans is one of them.

HOW IN THE WORLD DID SHE TALK LIKE THIS BACK THEN AND END UP HOSTING A SHOW TEARING APART WHAT PEOPLE LOOK FOR A FRIGGING LIVING????
47 years in Hollywood and several thousand dollars in plastic surgery does that to a person.
You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become a villain.
Ok, this kind of breaks my heart, and I feel like it’s exemplary of something that I think is one of Hussie’s greatest strengths as a writer. Well, two things.
The first thing is that he has this incredibly strong grasp on the fact that for the people sad things are actually happening to, they are not dramatically resonant or bittersweet or poetic. They are just sad.
When Vriska and John meet in dream-bubbles, Vriska doesn’t consciously think about how heart-wrenching it is that, in death, she’s meeting the one person that she kind of tied her hopes of redemption to, only for him not to remember any of the stuff they shared that she remembers as meaningful. She’s just a little sad about it, and a little unsure, and trying to make the best of it all.
And just recently when Dave sees Dirk for the first time and we all went batshit trying to figure out what tender, tragic things might be going through his head, and then his reaction is basically “DO NOT WANT.” He’s not thinking about the godforsaken tragedy of it all, he’s thinking that he’s upset and wishes he wasn’t. Like real people do tend to react to stuff at first.
Which kind of brings me to the other thing I wanted to talk about. Which is that Hussie completely and totally gets that he doesn’t need to spell out what a character is feeling. He understands the power of audience empathy and he uses it to his advantage. When presented with an opportunity to make it crystal clear to us what a character is feeling, he will leave it vague almost every time.
And not only that, but when he does tell us how a character feels (as above) he keeps it general. He understands that he can tell us that WV feels sad, and we understand immediately that sad is a severe understatement of how WV must be feeling, without needing to be explicitly told. Hussie implies, rather than states, and he leaves it up to us to understand and imagine based on our comprehension of the characters involved and the situations they’re in.
What he expects of us is to fill in the blanks and flesh out the story with our own emotional reactions and with our empathy. He asks us to participate on an individual level in constructing the emotional resonance of the story, by embellishing it for ourselves as we go.
This is a good post because it lists the perfect examples that make Homestuck what it is: a story driven primarily on the reader’s emotions.
this is everything i have ever wanted to say about homestuck
The pokemon duh eggs werent even introduced until gen 2
if you think about it from a canonical standpoint it was the egg because the creation myth says that an egg appeared where there was nothingness and Arceus came out of that egg
You’re both geeks. That’s how I see it
Dad: Why do you think they do that?
Girl: Because the companies who make these try to trick the girls into buying the pink stuff instead of stuff boys want to buy. [x]
that awkward moment when a child understands the harm of forcing gender roles better than most grown male politicians.
I’m surprised that I haven’t reblogged this, to be honest.
I love that last gif. She looks so frustrated. Like “Um, hello, obviously girls and boys can like anything why doesn’t anybody get that???”
She does have a point though..
Kids who are smarter than adults though.
