ugh.

I Fall Forward, You Fall Flat by roachpatrol is basically just so amazing I have already read it about three times. No-SGRUB AU; Sollux♠Karkat, Karkat♦Gamzee, Sollux♦Aradia I think there's probably something wrong with me that I think Sollux and Karkat's weird awkward teenage mutant hateflirting in this is super romantic, but it completely is. Also this Karkat is, true story, a total babe.

Tumblr has basically ruined what remained of my ability to be coherent. Sorry.

So, okay, I am going to try -- try -- to do the Tumblr thing, I guess. Given that I am basically awful at keeping up with Dreamwidth/LiveJournal, this will probably be a terrible plan that will quickly fizzle out, especially since I am basically a giant lurker. But, I will be here. Let me know who you are on tumblr, or, I suppose, recommend my tumblrs to follow. (Especially Homestuck-y type ones, I suppose?)

Speaking of Homestuck: Today I learned that I give no fucks about codpieces. (Because I honestly didn't notice the codpiece until it was pointed out to me!)

Things that are like 10x funnier and 1000x more disturbing on re-read: this conversation between Equius and Gamzee.

I wish there were a way to :D: that made clear you were D:-ing more than you were :D-ing.

Edit: Actually, not everything involving Equius is disturbing. His moirallegiance with Nepeta is actually still pretty sweet. (Sweeter, once I realized on re-read that his residence overlooks Vriska's, which makes him "forbidding" Nepeta from FLARPing a lot less unreasonable and a lot sweeter in retrospect.)

So I'm to the beginning of Act 5/Hivebent, since I'm trying to take thing slow and actually pay attention to shit this time, rather than just blustering through. (That means re-watching the flashes like seven times a piece until I'm sure I understand what happened in almost every scene.)

Here are my thoughts:

1. So basically everything involving Sollux and Aradia is sad and tragic anyway, but the early conversations between them is so much moreso with the knowledge of what actually happened in the past/with all the FLARPing shenanigans.

2. Karkat is like a billion times more adorable adorabloodthirsty amazing right from the beginning than I remembered. SO MUCH MORE AMAZING.

3. ♥Terezi♥

4. This is actually more in response to more recent events than what I'm re-reading right now, but I will never be able to completely 100% loathe Vriska (or, I mean, 100% wish she wasn't in the story at all rather than enjoying disliking her) if only because I basically love that her whole messed up relationship with Terezi exists. Not that, like, it was good/healthy, but that it's just so complex and toxic and friendships going sour writ large, and... I don't know. It's hard to explain. I just like that that it happened and it's a big part of their characterization, and it's still a big deal in the story even now. And not really in a "lol blackrom" way. Just in that messy "we used to be friends, but not really because you're kind of a sociopath" type way? :\

5. Eridan and his nice guy bullshit can still go fuck itself though. Seriously.

6. I think I need more Homestuck icons.
ang: (web» the slender man can)
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/DamselSteph 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, [personal profile] 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.)

The Midnight Crew intermission is a lot more enjoyable on a re-read, since now 1. I get how it is in any way relevant to the story at hand, and 2. I'm not rushing through to get back to the parts with the kids.
ang: (l*» i am saying words!)
i think my favorite thing about homestuck fic is looking it up on ao3 and basically every story has a pairing list at least three lines long. because that's how this source material rolls, guys.

i totally made a post earlier (and then deleted it because it was boring) full of RAGE and CUSSING at people in LFr who can't stack for AoE heals or kill slimes on yor'sahj. but the more important thing is I was in an LFR today that had to deal with a red/yellow/green phase because killing slimes is apparently hard? AND WE LIVED. IT WAS MAGICAL, if rage-inducing.

i think i've reached the point where i don't really care if the terezi/dave fic i'm reading is good any more.

Yay I got my chattering healing mace! It is the best mace. (Okay, heroic version is the actual best mace, but whatevs.) I am so excited.

Things I am not excited about: assholes on my raid team transferring off the server without telling anybody ahead of time. Fuck you too, buddy.

By which I mean, Bacon Bandits (Earthen Ring US Alliance) are recruiting a DPS. We're not terribly picky about what type at this point as long as your numbers are in the right range for heroic Dragon Soul kills. We do not currently have a Death Knight or a Rogue. We're currently 4/8H in Dragon Soul (Morchok, Yorsahj, Ultraxion, Hagara) and starting work on Zonozz this week. We are cool and casual as fuck. Please come hit things in the face for me.

Other things I am not excited about: oh sweet baby jesus we have to go to firelands for another staff. D: 3 staves is awesome, grinding firelands for the rest of my life is not.

Re-reading Homestuck from the start apparently. So many one-off gags in this thing that turned into not just running gags but actual plot points started so much earlier than I remembered.
