i always thought that her penmanship was like that because she put so much art into it it became too much art and not enough words
Haha no she is just terrible.
I mean yeah she’s capable of cleaning it up when she wants to (and probably can do a fair hand at imitating other peoples’ handwriting) but when she doesn’t have any reason to write nicely she’s

headcannon, arsast actually has the worst penmanship, while rossan worked really hard on his. Staiko has surprisingly good handwriting, and Lazapi dabbles in old-style caligraphy sometimes
When Lazapi bothers to put some effort into it she can do really gorgeous caligraphy but most of the time she has by far the worst handwriting. Like yOu kn.w hOw her quirk i~ nigh indecipherable ~.metime~. Yeah that gives you some indication of what her penmanship is usually like.
i still think of your blog and your icon as ‘the full quagsire’
As you should.
Bramble can do an excelent cosplay of LSP with just a snap of the fingers
Are you kidding me, these lumps take so much glubbing time and effort to maintain.
joaniam replied to your post: I have the strangest urge to overexplain myself in your askbox. im sorry. Its not that i dislike your shipping (not at all, i occationally quite enjoy the antics in your bramble is a loathsome shipper tag) it just makes me sad when people say things like oooh they were a couple that makes this scene 10x more [insert feeling here] im not surprised that people do that or anything, i just had a day where i noticed it more? on your conversation.
i actually was sad re: l/r reveal because i wanted to be like them when i grew up. living with my best friend, and doing what i loved and helping people. and then they were romantically involved but those are my messy feels SPECIFIC to r/l
Ok, I can understand that.
My reaction was really more along the lines of “oh, cool, this makes the Living Circle temples a monastic organization that doesn’t condemn romantic (and presumably sexual) relationships between its members.” Which is not something you see very often, in fiction or IRL.

Ah, no, I understand.
And on reflection, I think I may have been drawing some false equivilances there? There’s definitely a correlation between my being aware of Lark and Rosethorn’s relationship and my intense feels about them in Briar’s Book, but I’m not sure there’s a causation. It’s more likely that it’s just that as a kid, I tended to focus a lot more strongly on the kids, and not so much on any of the adults - on my recent reread I also had a lot stronger Rosethorn+Crane feels than I remember having as a kid, and for all that I joke about spadeshipping them, they’re very clearly not romantically involved.
author meltdown? details pretty please?
Ok so. I am not sure how much you are aware of the history here, but the Midnight Crew started out on several fan-sponsored bonus pages of Problem Sleuth, as non-canonical characters.
Later, after the Midnight Crew had started appearing in Homestuck, the fan who had sponsored the original bonus pages (who went by several usernames in various places, I remember him as Professor) decided to do a fan adventure on the MSPA forums. This was when the fandom was still mostly centered on the official forums; fan adventures were really popular (not that they aren’t now, but with the fandom more centralized the popular ones tended to be really well known).
Anyway, around the time that the Intermission is running, Professor decides to do a fan adventure about the Felt, simply titled The Felt. As one does. And inserts himself as the Midnight Crew’s mysterious boss, kind of an opposite figure to the then very mysterious Lord English. As one does. The adventure includes a number of elements that have never precisely been contradicted by canon, including several flashbacks to the Midnight Crew building the city; it also includes elements that would later be shown to be completely inaccurate, such as an origin story for Snowman which had her start out green like the rest of the Felt. Hussie indicates knowledge of The Felt, both Hussie and Professor imply ongoing correspondence between the pair of them, Hussie comments that the fan adventure has some “good ideas” about the origin and powers of the Felt.
People start speculating on how much of The Felt can be considered Homestuck canon. Hussie clarifies that he has permission to use elements from The Felt but that nothing should be taken as canon unless it actually shows up in Homestuck proper.
Hussie posts this page in the closing sequence of the intermission; the diamond-shaped pendant on the floor is the same design as a pendent worn by Professor’s shadowy mysterious self-insert in The Felt. Fans argue over whether this is a polite nod to an influential fan or confirmation that fan adventure can be considered canon. Fans argue a lot. Professor becomes profoundly uncomfortable with the drama his fan adventure is causing. Flamewars start to spring up, primarily with people attacking one another for treating/not treating The Felt as canon.
Professor ragequits, cannot be enticed to return to the project for love or money. The Felt, to my knowledge, remains unfinished to this day.
i need to read this dangan ronpa thing, don't i
Yes, you do.
(Standard advice to be careful of spoilers, and also warning/reminder that the game is a dystopian murder mystery visual novel and therefore involves teenagers graphically killing one another in a variety of fairly bloody ways.)

i don’t understand how paleshipping is a problem
it’s just that usually my rampant paleshipping has context
Do you know what's gonna happen after jarjammed?
Years in the future, you’re sitting in a seedy bar when a bespectacled person with improbably colored hair slides onto a stool next to you. They seem preoccupied. Eventually the tension becomes too much, and you ask what their problem is. They sigh over their drink. “Jarjammed. Nothing’s been the same since Jarjammed.”
No but really, I’m pretty sure at least one of our mods is planning on starting up a new game with after Jarjammed ends, and a bunch of us are probably going to end up kind of migrating over there.
May I continue to be on your friends page as jadescribe? If so, flarion or absol maybe?
some one else asked specifically for absol, so flarion it is!
i wish i had a bird, but i’m almost too apathetic to take care of myself. why would i trust myself with the wellbeing of another living creature?!?!
See I’m living with my parents right now and the house is really too small to accommodate much in the way of pets when there’s already four of us living here (me, folks, brother) but when I move out again I’m probably going to get some more guinea pigs because I actually take better care of myself when I have something else to take care of? The great thing about guinea pigs is that they eat most kinds of fruits and veggies that people eat, so when I have a couple of piggies to feed I end up eating better too because I have to buy leafy greens and things with lots of vitamin C and so on anyway.
Honestly there were a few times last winter when I mostly found the gumption to get out and go grocery shopping because I needed more food for them. I can live a few days on instant noodles, but they needed a head of lettuce and a bell pepper and then once I was out I might as well get some stuff I need, too.
joaniam replied to your post: joaniam replied to your post: question: i dislike…
i think you did, but i’d have to go brush up on my shakespeare, and seperate it in my head from German. XD I just really love being reminded that English has actually!singular!forms of ‘you’. (thou and thy. i think ‘thy’ is posessive…)
My understanding is that thou/thee/thy/thine are directly equivalent with I/me/my/mine (with “mine” and “thine” additionally being used where one would use “my” or “thy” if the next word starts with a vowel). I’m less sure I got the verb conjugations right, but eh.
the first sentence of this reply makes my inner linguistic historian rediculously happy. (i am sorry that this is not actually related to the topic of the ask itself)
I hope I got it right? It looks right to me but I don’t exactly use “thou” in everyday speech.
