So I went to Youtube to relisten to the 4/3 speed version of Time on my side
(which actually is like 25% more badass than the orginal version, even though the original version is, among other things, the background music to [S] Prince of Heart: Rise Up
), and when I opened the Youtube page, I actually looked at my subscriptions, and instead, I wound up watching the latest EverymanHybrid video and then going to the wiki to figure out what the fuck was going on and holy shit Evan/
Steph is a thing that actually happened? What? (Although tbh as far as I can tell I am... kind of uncomfortable with how
it's happening? But whatever those kids were perfect for each other.) And they crossed over with TribeTwelve? (Ok, true story, but the guy who plays Noah from TT basically seems like the most hilariously dedicated to the story of all these guys. Apparently the crossover sprung from accidentally appearing in one of the EMH fans' 7 Trials of Habit videos and he was like "Sure, why not, lets say that was my character and cross this shit over.")
Anyway, so yeah, basically 1. I need to go catch up on the last year
of EMH and TT and MH(2). And 2. I cannot believe I have spent a year not following EMH and we still have no idea what the fuck is going on
. Like, there is still no solid confirmation either way on what, exactly, is the connection between the 1980s-Fairmount versions of the characters and the modern versions aside from vague insinuations they are all stuck in urban legend hell.
The problem with catching up with all this is I'm going to feel compelled to download all the new stuff into my Giant Folder Of Slender Man Shit on my computer and I am just not sure I want to make the time commitment for that. (Originally it was because I intended to make some sort of fan video thing using the footage, and then I remembered vidding is ~beyond my delicate brains~ but still felt the need to obsessively compile all of it.)
I hit the first recap entry in my Homestuck
re-read, which seemed like a good place to take a break. (And then skipped ahead to some of the Dave/Terezi good bits, some of which I'd completely forgotten about? IDK. I HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS.)
I kind of want there to be Jade/Davesprite (or I guess Jadesprite/Davesprite, but somewhat less so, since right now I am mostly interested in something that would be set after Jade and Jadesprite merge.) fic in my world. I am not really sure why; it's just a thing. That I want.
I HAVE NOT TYPED THIS MANY OF MY FEELINGS ABOUT FICTIONAL WORKS UP IN MY JOURNAL ALL AT ONCE IN A WHILE. IT IS ODD.Edit
And since apparently I still have this open in a tab weeks later and it's suddenly relevant, some_stars
linked me this slenderman picture that is basically the most amazing thing ever
. (like, honest to god i keep accidentally tabbing to it and laughing my ass off because it is wonderful.)
