There is something odd going on...When I click on 'Special Design' I get chance of 'Chance Of Sunshine'
Thanks for letting me know! And sorry for the late reply - I´ve been travelling. Fixed now - Special Design is here
...I feel ridiculously creepy, but Pinboard doesn't send messages.
All I wanted to say is: HOMESTUCK!!! ALL OVER MY NETWORK. If I had any hand in this, I AM SO GLAD. If I didn't--well, whatever, yay, thank you, I feel less bad for all my spam and OH MY GOD MY FEEEEEELINGS--are you caught up?
You had ALL OF THE HANDS, oh my god. Basically I have been working my way back through your and renquise's bookmarks? ♥
But, yeah, no, I think the origin story went: Ugh why is my network composed of nothing but Inception, X-Men, Captain America, Sherlock, Merlin and whatever this Homestuck thing is, I DO NOT CARE ABOUT ANY OF THESE THINGS, and then after that looking up Homestuck was obviously self-defence. Although having read all of those recs for trollfic which made them sound oh fuck so amazing it was really difficult to be patient while they weren't there. Not that the kids and the Exiles aren't all kinds of excellent, obviously. Oh god I love them all so much. Even the ones who I don't actually like or who annoy me also regularly make my heart stop with love (oh my god Eridan and the angel slaying, what the actual fuck).
AN-Y-WAY, yes, I am caught up, and I am in that phase of new fandomhood where I basically can't breathe, and. This is really not a useful state of mind in which to write my Yuletide fic in, um.
By which I mean: thank you for getting Homestuck in my network, and also, this comment made my afternoon.
OH YAY!!! I feel so successful as a person! I'm also stalking renquise and anything you've tagged I that I haven't read yet, heh. ALSO REALLY JUST FULL OF FLAIL--inability to breathe is exactly it. (My poor roommates. They finally called me out on making a scrabbly noise at the most recent update. It says something about me that they accepted "oh, just an online comic I have too many feelings about" with aplomb.)
BECAUSE OH MY GOD
Like, yes, Eridan, fuck you, fuck you, but, then HEMOSTUCK--please make out with Sollux more, and then kiss Karkat on the mouth--and why do I paleship Gamzee/Karkat with the fires of a thousand suns, don't fucking kill people, that is inappropriate, you stop that--aaaaaaahhhhhhhh and we don't even know where the fuck the trolls are now, and how many more people are dead, goddamnit. Jane! Vriskaaaaaaaa! Why is Jade such a badass? Aw, fuck, feeels. Have you read >Connect yet?
I love your origin story! I read The Finer Details of Gay Cluckbeast with absolutely no idea who anyone was, except that the summary was hella relevant to my interests. And now I am in love with 24 characters who are mostly drawn without arms. LIFE CHOICES, how do you.
No, this made my night, thank you. :D
And now I am in love with 24 characters who are mostly drawn without arms.
Argh, I know
. And then the fandom is like, Hey, that is not enough characters, how would you like to also have inappropriate amounts of love for Hearts Boxcars
or Clubs Deuce
or goddamned Jack Noir
I'm not really sold on Jane and Jake yet, although I obviously ship Jake/Lalonde and Jake/Strider's Auto-Reply something fierce, but I'm intrigued about where we're going with this brainwashing business. (Er, unless Jane is actually and finally dead, in which case I guess we have gone where we're going?)My poor roommates. They finally called me out on making a scrabbly noise at the most recent update.
I ... yeah. I literally
placed a ban on myself on sending any emails with the word Homestuck in it to any friends yesterday. I'm sort of afraid they're going to start blocking me.and why do I paleship Gamzee/Karkat with the fires of a thousand suns, don't fucking kill people, that is inappropriate, you stop that
Hee, god, it's not even the killing people that I object to (...), it's the fucking text, godamnit Gamzee do not make me c&p all of your chatlogs into Word and SHIFT+F3 them so I can fucking read them, how is that supposed to make me love you? Except then oh god, yes, there is the thing with Tavros and the thing with Karkat
and fuuuuuuuuck, shooshing and papping, I managed to spoil myself for Gamzee's psychotic break but not for the resolution to it it was basically the most amazing moment and I left teeth marks in the back of my hand.
Except if Vriska and Tavros are really dead forever I ... suppose I will just have to be over here rereading Hemostuck forever and ever so as not to die of the sadness. (Although at least we have dreambubbles! As long as we continue to have Tavros awkwardly flailing at Dave in dreambubbles, I guess I'll be OK.)and we don't even know where the fuck the trolls are now
I still don't even understand what the purpose of blowing up the green sun was
, given that they were also doing the scratch. Let alone where they all are now and what's happening to them and how they're going to meet up with Jade and John again. I'm kind of pining for that recap we didn't get /o\Have you read >Connect yet?
I haven't, but I have it on my ereader! Along with, uh, I think 26 other fics? I would ... hate to run out of Homestuck to read on the tram. I mean. That would be pretty terrible.
OH I AM SO MAD, LJ
AKA: I just wrote a long comment, and then LJ ate it and now I am SAD.
In other news: I CONTINUE TO HAVE ALL THE FEELINGS, I HAD NOT READ THE DEUCE OR JACK FIC AND I LOVE YOU (INAPPROPRIATE), BRO IS MY FAVORITE ONE (PINE MORE!), JANE SHOULD CHECK HER MINDCONTROL APOLOGIST TENDENCIES AND IS PROBABLY NOT DEAD BECAUSE THAT IS A PLOTLINE THAT IS NOT DEAD, THE GREEN SUN DOESN'T MAKE SENSE TO ANYONE BUT MAYBE IT'S ABOUT CANCER AND/OR GETTING RID OF JACK? HOW DO YOU RECAP, HARD TO SAY, DREAMBUBBLES ARE A GODSEND, KANAYA IS A MOTHERFUCKING BADASS AND ERIDAN ALSO IS A MURDERER AND I STILL LOVE THEM BOTH, YOU WILL LOVE >CONNECT BUT IT STILL TOO SHORT
and I want an e-reader for reasons. Fic reasons. And am jelly.
hooooooooooommmmmmmmmmmmestuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck these feelings in public will get me in trouble.
Oh man, that is the worst /o\
Lalonde is my favourite so far, I love her, but then Rose's Mom was the only one of the adults I liked, so *g* Strider's Auto-Reply though, oh man ♥ I mean, and Strider himself. (Goddamnit, give us names.)
these feelings in public will get me in trouble.
I am sort of delighted at the idea of this conversation being up here on my fic masterlist for EVER. Um.
Also, hey, so, while we're being creepy at each other (... smoothest transition ever), it would be kind of cool if there was somebody I could email about Homestuck who actually, you know, cared. Would you be up for that? I mean, I would just friend you, but it looks like you don't really use your LJ?
A THOUSAND TIMES
...Otherwise known as: do not even worry about smooth transitions. (Looking back at this, oh, the typos, self. Oh, the humanity!)
Yeah, I hardly ever use my LJ, except for stalking purposes, and less of that now that tumblr. And Pinboard.
I'm going to PM you my email address, and you should know I am equally delighted. About the coming feeljams (...Homestuck, what are you doing to my vocabulary?), and about leaving this thread here forever. YAY \o/
