so I am caught up with Homestuck

again!

and there is one very important thing about catching up with Homestuck everyone should know

There is a chrome extension called MSPAccess that allows you to move around the site without clicking on anything.

”->”…

I found it yesterday on userscripts-mirror.org; the rest of the URL stays the same

I guess it does work with greasemonkey! Cool. If anyone is doing a reread to prepare for next month, this is a good thing to know.

(Other things discovered just now: if you accidentally hit ctrl+! instead of shift+! that is the shortcut to making the entire paragraph really really big.)

(Also works if you do it on purpose.)

again!

and there is one very important thing about catching up with Homestuck everyone should know

There is a chrome extension called MSPAccess that allows you to move around the site without clicking on anything.

”->” is next page “<-” is previous previous “0” is open pesterlogs you can change them if you want

and that is why this is post started with “so I am caught up with Homestuck” and not “so I have been diagnosed with an RSI”

Is there a way to get it that’s not on userscripts.org? The site’s not working for me.

for greasemonkey, I don’t know. I didn’t find it, but I only tried like 3 units of hard. For chrome it is in the standard plug-in “store” or whatever.

These are not really Homestuck reread thoughts since my opinion has not changed, but:

I really don’t like the Adult Troll Titles Have 8 Letters thing, because as much as it invites silly wordplay, it is too arbitrary and worldbuilding-resistant. (Adult names vs childhood names, that’s cool. But only precisely 8 characters?)

Biased as I am, I’m not even convinced there’s significant textual support for it! We get this rule from Mindfang’s journals, right? But she’s not exactly a reliable narrator, and she is obsessed with “8”s, being spider themed and all. It’s far more likely that she came up with 8 letter descriptions of everyone for her own amusement, especially when you consider that:

1. she did not do this with everyone. (see: The Grand Highblood. Contenders for people Mindfang may be kinda frightened of, represent.)

and

2. To make everyone’s “title” fit the 8 letter rule, she’d not only massage the title with the troll in question’s typing quirk (see: Ψiioniic, someone was laughing at *that* success) but her own (see “the expatri8” Darkleer)

and

3. you can sort of see the moment where Hussie decided this should be a rule.

and

4. If these journals are where Eridan gets the “Orphaner Dualscar” name from, it is funny to think of him earnestly taking on the id when it is really only a wordplay Mingfang invented to poke fun at the dude in her diary.

otoh, Doc Scratch takes the 8 letter thing and runs with it farther than Mindfang did, so it depends on how much you trust him not to pick a storytelling style that amuses him as long as it is not objectively False.

HOWEVER.

ASSUMING THE ADULT TROLLS MAKE UP 8 LETTER TITLES FOR THEMSELVES THING IS TRUE, AS I WILL DO FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE POST.

Vriska (and Aranea) Serket’s typing quirks are not spider themed after all.

The quirk is “look at me, look at how grown up I am” themed. Because that is what the connotations of the “8”s become. Troll adults are a source of instinctual dread for their young, and here is Vriska, throwing little reminders into every sent8nce!!!!!!!! More when she gets angry or upset.

Fine, right. “I am super important: mature, far more terrifying and dangerous than you, and w8ed down by all these serious responsi8ilities!” That sounds like legit Vriska thinking to me.

(But then my question is why hasn’t Mingfang grown out of the habit? “Hello it is me, an adult, doing adult things, adultwise.” Speaking for myself, I have made such announcements** far less after actually *becoming* an adult. What does Mindfang have still to prove?)

(**Unless as a joke.)

I guess for Aranea she’d be going for “I am knowledga8le and helpful and trustworthy, and am concerned only for your 8est interests (which I am equipped to understand even if you are not)” and missing how it is still the most creepy.
