I am a citizen of the Internet. I do things sometimes. Some of those things will go here. Yeah.
Okay, I get that the lesbian tag is going to be full of porn, but why is it full of straight porn?
Oh shit we’re all really dumb
Hussie-as-Caliborn getting social media accounts (deviantArt, and possibly Amazon) isn’t just a joke, it’s a plot device.
Homestuck has been slowly breaking format more often the closer we get to the end. Art is no longer confined to panels, John is unstuck from canon, and a whole bunch of other stuff.
Caliborn interacting with the internet isn’t just a gag, it’s the next logical step of the story’s plot and themes.
Homestuck has done stuff like this before, and it’s something I especially love about it. It’s also why it’s so difficult to categorize it as a “webcomic” because it’s really not. It is the first and only thing i have found that fully utilizes the capabilities of the Internet to tell a story. I fully expect that it can’t ever be contained to one website, let alone one page. I hope Hussie continues to update Caliborn’s Deviantart the way he’s done with SBaHJ. I think there will probably be plot-relevant information there at some point (if not already).
stop romanticizing nature while demonizing cities.
cities are beautiful. the skyscrapers all lit up are as beautiful as the moon. neon is as lovely as stars. concrete is as sturdy as earth, architecture strong as the trees. summers in the city teem with life, too, winters are equally cold and bare, and the sound of car horns, the sound of crowds, the cacophony of metal and stone is as beautiful as birdsong.
there is nature in cities. there is life in cities. there is the sacred and the divine and the beautiful in cities. cities are alive, they have spirits that may be a little younger, but are just as real as those of the natural world.
