Homestuck ‘Rex Duodecim Angelus’
For Orchestra by Walt Ribeiro

i made a gif
Because whenever anyone seriously tries to argue that POC fans (which for the record, I’m white) and anyone drawing POC Homestucks and advocating for more representation of people of color in fandom and media are the ones inserting race/racism into the discussion—
y’know, racism, that system by which, among other things, mostly-arbitrary categories of biological characteristics and cultural stereotypes are used to justify gross social, economic, and political inequality to the benefit of those in power, and which kind of exists fucking everywhere and doesn’t need help getting inserted into almost every aspect of people’s lives—
I always have to wonder if we’re even reading the same comic. Intentional analogy or not, that thematic ship has gone and fucking sailed.
And as promised, both messages anon sent me after the last ask I answered are included here for general mockery. Rest assured, they are as enlightened on issues of citizenship and how other people self-identify as they are on race as a whole:
Good job anon what a convincing argument you’ve crafted.
The AraFef tag doesn’t update nearly often enough so here’s some alien babes kissing.
i love these two so much sgjhdgsf
also i have so many old (=ugly) unfinished unpublished sketches of these two around here somewhere it’s a bit upsetting, so maybe if i throw this out there i’ll actually manage to finish it some day soon-ish? :’I one can hope.
If the Homestuck Game is real and we end up in the Medium
Since it will be a MASSIVE session, we will need EVERYONE’s cooperation. So I’ve decided to lay down a few ground rules.
- If you are someone’s server player, connect your host ASAP. We must NOT waste time; there will be hundreds of us launching into the medium at the same time.
- Don’t prototype anything insanely powerful before entering the medium. But PLEASE prototype BEFORE you enter.
- In the event that you meet up with fellow players in the medium (given our estimated numbers, this is highly possible), form bands together. We will ALL need help.
- As soon as the Space Players deploy into the medium, ALL KNIGHT PLAYERS, please head straight off directly and partner yourself with a Space Player. Gotta get frog breeding ASAP.
- It is highly likely that we will be confronted with extremely powerful enemies due to the amount of prototypings that will take place. This means many of us might not make it. Keep an eye out for dead or dying players.
- If you spot a dead player and have no idea which planet they’re from, and they’re not on their quest bed, immediately kiss them just IN CASE their dreamself hasn’t been revived yet.
- If you spot someone dying, immediately lend aid. Ask them which planet they came from, and what quest bed you need to lay them on to. If the planet/bed is close, it is much more advisable to lay them on said bed. If not, and you’re sure they’ll die soon, please hold on to them until they die, then administer a resurrection kiss.
- LET’S NOT BE AN ASS AND KILL EACH OTHER. Unless you’re planning to ascend to the GodTier, in which case it’s okay. But please kill them only if they’re ON the quest bed.
- Seers and Life players must always be at the core of every party. Do not attempt anything dangerous without either a Seer or a Life player.
- Remain in constant communication with different parties. This way, we can all update each other on what we have accomplished so far, and if we’re ready to confront the Black King.
- Don’t procrastinate; we have the fate of a universe in our hands.
- Do NOT, I repeat, do NOT confront the Black King and Queen alone, or even with a party. The attack on both royalties must be carefully organized; they will be prototyped a THOUSANDFOLD or more, and will probably kill an entire party of a hundred in a heartbeat.
- Keep an eye out for the Agents of Derse. If they rebel against their royalty, all good but make sure to keep an eye out for them even if they’re allied with us. You never know.
- Whoever ends up as our Ectobiologist/s, you guys know what to do. Just press the buttons.
- Derse players, listen to the HorrorTerrors. Prospit players, watch your Skaian clouds. And then please COMPARE NOTES together. We want to be able to isolate what we need to do and what can come later, and what may lead to our doom.
- Time players, please, PLEASE be responsible. If you are a Time Player, that means you are one of the most important players. We will need your support in stabilizing timeloops and keeping everyone in track.
Imagine the rings though.
this is the cutest thing i have ever read like we’re actually doing this this is so sweet i love this fandom
This is adorable as fuck, but at the same time… all of Homestuck fandom in a sburb session together would be like the worst school group project in the world. And you can’t even go off and impatiently do everything yourself because then everyone probably dies.
17. dont start any memos about whether it’s ok to kill people
I’m pissing out of my eyes.
this will never stop being a thing
(i might add a bg one day. or not.)
