Dirk Strider cosplay photoshoot in downtown North Saint Paul, MN
I got my wig styled today, so I wanted to get the whole ensemble together as soon as possible. The tank top screen printing was done by a friend from school down in Nashville, TN and the photography was done by my good friends at Green Silo Photography
Still to come: Booker Dewitt, Jack Frost, Fix-It Felix Jr.
Tonight is the 2nd lunar perigee of the 5th dark season’s equinox. It is a very special night, and also the wriggling day of a very special person!
But that person isn’t you, so you couldn’t possibly give less of a fuck.
Your name is VRISKA SERKET. You are a yellowblood and self-proclaimed master of your caste’s trade and basically everything else to do with computers. Some people disagree with you, but they’re just jealous of how great you are. Your online win record in every game you play is flawless thanks to all the hacks you use to decimate your opponents (you still have a win record despite being banned multiple times for cheating because you’ve hacked the servers in so many ways it’s impossible to actually keep you out or destroy your computer). The scar over your left eye is a testament to how whiners can’t deal with your greatness. You wear it like a trophy badge.
Your friend gave you some programming thing to do with a bunch of code translated by some prick. You’ve been putting it off because you’re too busy being the best, but you’ve just finished it because she’s taken to nagging you and oh look there she is now. Wonder if she has anything interesting to say, unlike every other time she talks to you. The messages come so slow from her it’s like she’s only using one finger to type or something.
That’d be funny if it wasn’t also probably true.

If you aren’t reading derpbent then you are doing something very, very wrong with your life.
The art is breathtaking, the characterization is spot on while being simultaneously fresh and fascinating. Basically everything is fuckin stupendous and you’d be silly not to read it this instant.
I’m actually operating on the assumption that all my followers are caught up on this stellar adventure and are just as eagerly awaiting an update as I am. The idea that not everyone in the fandom has read this is a confusing and uncomfortable thought for me.
If you by some tragic twist of fate were not aware of this work then I am so sorry. Go ogle it immediately and repeatedly, you will absolutely not regret it.
My goal was to watch Elementary over the hiatus but then I got kidnapped by Off.
I just had an uncomfortable moment where I realized just how much content there is on the tv tropes Homestuck page.
I voluntarily read, and occasionally reread portions, of a comic that’s now, what? 8000 pages long? And now I’m willing going to read about all the tropey tie ins to the comic? And that’ll take what, twelve fuckin years?
I mean it’s not that I’m worried I’m wasting my time. It’s that I’m worried how comfortable I am brutally murdering my time.
I don’t know shit about dangdang ropa or whatever but I know that the pastry vacuum and the super buff lady are so gay for each other that the rainbows are leaking into nearby fandoms.
Kinda like John’s hands except significantly more adorable.
TV Tropes drinkings game: go to any trope page, if Homestuck is listed as an example take a very small sip.
You’ll be wasted in minutes.
Here’s an old one, but still a favorite. Someone on 4chan had a style roulette thread for a character of your own choice, and I ended up with 1950’s UPA cartoons with Equius Zahhak from Andrew Hussie’s “Homestuck.” Wow.
