I figured you guys might want a laugh at my sim’s misfortune.
Even The Grim Reaper wouldn’t take him…
kanaya and her lusus always make me super emotional okay. because like so many of the characters, both human and troll, have really difficult relationships with their guardian figures that later winds up being a big deal for them. but then there’s kanaya and the mothergrub, who just seem to be really close and just get along really well.
like how kanaya spent her holiday staying in and reading with her lusus. or how the mothergrub literally gave up on a longer lifespan and accepted an early death to go against all previous tradition and raise kanaya herself, just because she liked kanaya that much. or how kanaya was aware her guardian would die early and accepted that which wow pretty intense for a kid to handle.
ugh they are just so sweet and it’s like while we see the majority of the other characters strifing with or angsting over their guardians meanwhile over here it’s like
that is so fucking cute
I’m fucking done with the entire internet
I SLAMMED MY HEAD ON MY KEYBOARD AND BROKE DOWND LAUGHTIKNG
I’M CHOKING OMFG
So while re-reading homestuck I noticed something about doomed john.
His corpse was apparently burned.
But his denizen uses wind powers.
So I was thinking, when does air burn you? And it hit me.
Steam. Doomed John was boiled to death.
And remember, his denizen gave him the choice between being allowed to leave fine and living out his days in a doomed timeline, or sacrificing himself so that dave becomes davesprite which allows the alpha universe to exist. John Egbert cares enough about his friends that he gave his consent to being BOILED ALIVE to let them win the game.
Just a quick reminder to anyone having a bad day that Karkat Vantas reads trashy romance novels.
Like, the type of novels you buy second-hand at the grocery store for a dollar with a picture of shirtless Fabio on the cover.
For anyone who has never picked up one of these books out of curiosity, it is basically porn for menopausal women. It follows a cliche romance with a love interest with no flaws whatsoever and always has random sex scenes described in flowery prose.
So yes, Karkat Vantas reads the troll equivalent of Fifty Shades of Gray. Karkat Vantas has in his possession various books of similar stature.
And if that doesn’t put a smile on your face, I don’t know what will.
Thank you for your time.
