I AM A DISGRACE TO THE HOMESTUCK AND THE WORLD AS A WHOLE.
ALRIGHT. OK. That Paradox Space thing actually DOES sound pretty brilliant but holy fuck I do not have the stamina to keep going after the main comic??? Ah well, it’s far, far off in the future, anyway, we will see
HAHA WOW HAPPY 4/13 YOU GUYS!!!
I think it’s really great that we can all celebrate this incredibly special date together, within the same general timeframe, while wide awake and at a totally reasonable hour! I sure am glad none of us missed it or anything, that would’ve been really dumb ha hah a
What’s especially great/weird is that this is already my SECOND Egbertversary during which I’ve been… part of the fandom? Aware of the comic’s existence, at least. I’m sixteen and yet I feel SO OLD.
I’m also probably the only person alive who is coming up on their second year of mspaintadventuring and is still stuck in the first third of the story so LET’S GOOOOOOOOOOOOhmygod
Tavros: Rap with TC.
THIS IS THE BEST POSSIBLE THING TO COME BACK TO. I’M SO READY. I’M SO HERE FOR THIS
Jesus, somebody please get Gamzee a table or a cardboard box or something, what the hell is he doin
Where did all those horns even come from
Do juggalos just naturally secrete these things
are they like the opposite of pumpkins
Imagine if Karkat was visiting him and needed to use his laptop to message someone and just
Inevitably started smashing the keys
his apparent anger undermined by the chorus of honks accompanying every keystroke
Hello! This is a queued post from the past that no one will hopefully ever see!
I’m writing it in case my “short, potentially rejuvenating 11pm nap before getting down to liveblog business” turns into a deep, eternal slumber that can only be broken by a) true love’s kiss or b) sunlight, but not by my phone’s vibrating alarm going off!
If that happens, or also if I find myself unable to un-queue this post for other reasons, like getting kidnapped or smushed by belated meteors or something, it should let you know that that is a thing that happened and that I did not forget about you on purpose!
If that happens, I’ll also likely wake up in a cold sweat tomorrow, the only thought on my mind “HOLY ASTRINGENT PLUM-LIKE FRUIT, I CAN’T FUCKING BELIEVE I SLEPT THROUGH MY SECOND 4/13, I AM A DISGRACE TO THE HOMESTUCK AND THE WORLD AS A WHOLE” and then I will proceed to do the same thing I SHOULD be doing by the time this failsafe post is scheduled to go out, except a few hours later than ideal.
BUT I am p much counting on this NOT being necessary so I am wasting my time typing this so GOODBYE and SORRY, MAYBE.
RISES FROM THE GRAVE IN APPROPRIATELY SPOOKY, YET TRIUMPHANT MANNER
I’M HOOOOOOME ( ◜ ◉▽◉)◜
And I even brought a souvenir for all of you!
(my being dead is not something that is about to not keep happening)
(It’s just the norm by now, at least until I finish school)
(drop in - drop post - drop out: repeat once a month or so)
NEW TROLL NEW TROLL NEW SCORPIO TROLL ALERT ALERT
Also the first properly blue-blooded one! I guess we’ll finally see how being royalty might affect the life of someone who’s (presumably) not perpetually high and soul-rendingly lonely (probably)
…Looking at their username, I’d wager they’re… not entirely adverse to using their status to their advantage
or at least, someone else’s disadvantage
ALRIGHT THEN LET’S GOOOOOOOOOOWWWAAAIIT
WAIT A SECOND
WHERE WERE WE EVEN AT (‘◇’)
shit. shiiiiiit it’s been like a month, what the hell happened last time I did this???
…Something involving the Felt and profanity, if these strewn about post-its are anything to go by?
Alright, something about a demon, and Sollux’s virus, and Karkat being an idiot, and, oh, okay.
I remember now.
Back to crying, I guess.
Sounds like your lusus is agitated about something up there. You already gave him his serving of honey today. If he thinks he can get more, well that’s just greedy.
You wonder what could be bothering him?
Well, I don’t want to alarm you, but, following the current trend, probably a severe case of Headexploditis
That, or the imminent death of millions of people via the first batch of meteors
Quite possibly even the loss of your Lusus CAUSED by wayward civilisation-destroying meteor
So many fun options hahahaah (థ - థ)
I Know I Jokingly Predicted That I Would Pass Out in Front of the PC Tonight, But I Did Not Expect It to Actually Happen: an autobiography, by me
yeh. Protip: Don’t fall asleep on your keyboard.
As it turns out, it is not at all comfortable or designed for that purpose
If you can feel your brain shutting down, immediately cease trying to make sense of the adventures of a bunch of sad doomed teenage alien assholes and.
go to bed.
Anyway, here, have yesterday’s late-night liveblogging shenanigans (I will not be held accountable for any mistakes made/stupid things said due to sleep-deprivation (and slight tipsiness), READ AT YOUR OWN RISK):
This panel pretty much sums up the entirety of Act 5 so far???
Karkat’s mouth is almost constantly open, even though he has yet to actually get to scream at anyone in person (I guess he’s hoping that his letters will somehow absorb his RAEG and convey it to others more clearly if he just yells at his screen 24/7)
Sollux can’t even believe how fucking terrible everything and everyone is (especially when he’s trying to save them)
And then there’s Terezi just. laughing at everyone’s misery
The only thing missing is Gamzee blissfully playing with a rainbow-coloured slinky in the background, and Kitty Girl decking the halls with the intestines of a fucking dragon she slayed just the other day
Shit, alright, it’s gotten kinda late, but I am still gonna write A Thing tonight, since I promised I would - I’m not sure when I’ll actually post it, and I can’t guarantee I won’t pass out before hitting the “publish” button? But yeah, I SHOULD be making some GLORIOUS PROGRESS a little later
｜−・;） so hey
If you look to your left, you may notice that the dreaded Schedule of Despair is GONE (not forever, mind you, but for now its pointless promises are no more) and with it, the looming sense of obligation and overwhelming urge to procrastinate that overcame me whenever I so much as nervously glanced at it
From now on, I’m just updating whenever I can find the time, which could be anywhere from “27 times a week” to “once every other equinox”, and I am so, so sorry, but it honestly can’t be helped (;´・`)>
That’s!!!! a good idea!!! Thank you!!!
I’ve wanted a personal/non-Homestuck blog since pretty much always, anyway!
And, I mean, yeah, of course I COULD have called it something simple and on-topic like “Lobac isn’t liveblogging today dot tumblr dot com”, but.
patterns are always so important
(I hope I’ll never need another blog, because frankly I’m running out of url ideas)
Basically, I’ll be using that blog for, well, personal things, probably some fandom things, and!!!
Non-Homestuck-related asks!!! I’ll answer them over there, hopefully in a more timely manner than usual, in batches of five, and tag them with your url! So that’s where to look if you’re expecting an answer from me I’m sorry if you’ve been waiting for like two months OTL
(And if you DON’T want me to tag them, just tell me ok)
So yeh, this blog will now officially contain absolutely nothing but Homestuck, ever, until the end of time
…And if you ever wanna talk to me/know why I’m not updating/don’t mind occasionally hearing me ramble about stuff I like, you can follow the other blog!
thank you for your time, oh, also, I almost forgot
takes deep breath and yells into the abyss
(FOR REALS THIS TIME)
ALL ABOARD THE UPDATE TRAIN
WE ARE DEPARTING A LITTLE LATE BUT FROM NOW ON IT’S FULL SPEED AHEAD ε=ε=ε=┏(;￣□￣)┛
If, at any point in the future, the Update Train comes to an unexpected stop, we’d like to ask you to remain calm and refrain from assuming that this happened because the operator’s central nervous system spontaneously shut down - In all likelihood, they are merely momentarily distracted by an outside issue that needs to be addressed immediately, and plan to return to their train-operatorly duties as soon as possible
With that said!!!
LET’S SOLVE SOME MOTHERFUCKING MYSTERIES!!!
TO HELL WITH HUSSIE’S “lol that plot point was so obvious ill just off-handedly mention it” ATTITUDE
I WON’T HAVE THAT KIND OF CASUAL MYSTERY-REVEALING ON MY WATCH
WE’RE SOLVING THESE GODDAMN RIDDLES
WE’RE DOING SOME GODDAMN DETECTIVE WORK
AND WE’RE DOING IT PROPERLY (•̀o•́)ง
transforms into pile of liveblogger jello and wobbles sadly ༼ ´д｀ ༽
Yeesh. I’m not gonna waste too much time apologizing - fuckin Matura. fuckin specialised subjects rgrgrgrg - but yeah you have every right to be mad at me for just vanishing like that time and time again
AAAAHAHA GOSH IT’S BEEN THAT LONG??? WOW. OK THEN. I have no sense of time whatsoever I am so sorry
I am definitely planning on posting A Thing later today, at the very least! probably. maybe. we can only hope.
EDIT: Haha yeah no I am way too busy stressing out over my maths test on thursday. Everything is integrals and derivatives to me, I can’t focus at all (╹д╹;)
I’ve actually had a few major Homestuck Revelations today but. I wanna type them out properly when I’m not feeling quite so EFJNDFJASK
Realistically speaking, I think after Thursday I’ll pick the schedule back up? For like, three weeks? In that time I’ll only have one major test left to take, and that one’s English, which… shouldn’t be a problem
EMERGES FROM PILE OF HALF-ASSED ESSAYS
I LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVEEE ヽ(；▽；)ノ
I’M DONE, WITH WORK, FOR A LITTLE WHILE AT LEAST
Also, I, um. Well, I mean, obviously work isn’t the ONLY thing I’ve been busy with. There’s also, making Halloween plans, with both friends and family, and my sisters’ birthday, and.
I also may have developed a very minor case of
severe Fallout addiction
hahahahahahahelpme (´﹏` )
…AND!!! I’m telling you this because
I think Homestuck is finally getting to me, guys. It’s invaded my brain in the worst way.
I dunno if that’s just me, or a common memetic side effect of Homestuck-related media consumption, but??? I’m beginning to see it in places it really doesn’t belong???
I met this one dude (who is essentially a brain in a jar) and my first reaction when I heard him talk (or rather, constantly INVOLUNTARILY YELLING) was
this feels familiar
the delusional mad scientist robot equivalent of karkat has been found
that was pretty much all i could think about. it’s terrible. i can almost feel the infection spreading through my brain.
A MEGAGIGAULTRAPAUSE DEMANDS A MEGAGIGAULTRAUPDATE!!! WHICH IS, NOT HEre yet, unfortunately.
But it will be.
And it will be glorious. Hopefully. I mean, I’ll try （’-’*)
I guess I might as well read a few pages while I’m at it, though!
