cosmictuesdays replied to your post “cosmictuesdays replied to your post: Kara Zor-El, Karkat, Amanda…”
A short, gray-skinned male creature with horns that need to be sanded down, the way Hellboy deals with his.
Close enough for fan art!
(although Karkat’d be hugely indignant at the description because, What? No, he does not file his horns down to make them short and nubby on purpose*, and also his horns are perfectly fucking adequate the way they are, and also you should shut your face gash before your one thinkcell finally escapes its lonely cranial guardblock.)
(Not that he’s sensitive about them or anything.)
*outside of a few extra-canonical fic postulations
Started out just funny as hell. And then… AND THEN. I just… this was the best thing ever.
it took me a fuckin minute to realize it was john attempting to be karkat, i crying
Help, this is too perfect.
Question regarding recent but not most recent Homestuck events: did we already talk about how Karkat was fridged (briefly) for Kanaya’s benefit?
Because I didn’t twig that that was what happened the first time through. (Odds that I was distracted by how super sad John Egbert was instead: pretty high.) But nope, his brutal murder was solely to prove a point to Kanaya.
But jeez, Kanaya. I know he got better, but would it kill you to play along with the trope and take it personally for more than a panel and a half?
Rather than… *squints* …uh. Going kind of ashen? I am siding with Karkat here, Jane does not need an irritated rant on how she is being evil at them ineptly.
Okay, Kanaya. O.
So I was wondering why more people don’t draw trolls as insect-like, what with the pupations and everything…
Think I answered my own question. D=
Yes, these are excellent trolls.
I am glad you feel that way ‘cause I still live in hope someone else will be driven to make some (and then tell me about it).
I don’t know if I’ll elaborate over the half-fic blurb because at this point i don’t have the answers resolved to where they’re more interesting than the questions.
Like, what capabilities would a species need that they’ve been doing this long enough to co-evolve with Alternia’s symbiosis soup, but that can sneak in and out (on and off-world?) without the trolls’ developing technology wiping them out?
Like, Karkat and other young Vantases we’ve met sure feel driven to perform the ideal troll identity promoted by the troll authorities in their lives, whatever that identity is, huh?
Like, Karkat, while perhaps slightly off-model here, has comprehensibly troll motivations and emotional range and value of intimate relationships among his troll age peers. Do you suppose that, once he has outgrown the need to hide among them, he will still require them?
Like, I think it is obvious what Alternian policy would be if you happen to spot one of them bogarting your species’ resources… but what about the Beforans?
Or like, what does Karkat see if he flips forward in that book.
My bee fly Karkat story that I’m not gonna write properly is about Karkat hiding out at Kanaya’s hive for reasons that aren’t fully explicated at this effort level. You’d almost think it was a mere friendly visit, except that Karkat, amidst the sunlit rooms and the bright colours and the zombie attacks, is growing very very hivesick, yet does not leave for home.
He’d tried matching Kanaya’s sleep schedule at first, but the result was him wandering through Kanaya’s tower in a haze of exhaustion and light-blindness, while Kanaya avoided his company in favour of frolicking through the desert. Now they meet each other crosswise, at gloaming and dawn, and make half-asleep/half-awake small talk over grubloaf seasoned with plants that Kanaya has harvested by chainsaw.
You had really hoped that your first time with Kar would have gone a little better than him straight-up fainting on you, but you are just going to go ahead and declare it a minor victory that for once it is totally not your fuckin’ fault, and for that matter you would like to note it as a point of pride that you only thought about culling him the once and you’re pretty sure that’s just because he was screamin’ it at the time, not because old tendencies are coming to surface again.
The thing is, Kar is not exactly troll standard in the pants department and somehow hadn’t figured it out, like by watching porn or even through his romance novels, which you are now side-eyeing for inaccuracy since you know those things get pretty steamy - but anyway, Kar ain’t standard and not in the same way that Captor’s mutated, and you’ve got this nasty feeling that maybe that means he ain’t quite a troll, either.
You wish maybe you didn’t find the thought of that as eerily hot as you do.
(I know I must take no credit for this existing)
(But I do anyway, just a bit)
(Thank you for considering my survey that I filled out and tossed randomly into the depths of deep blue dashboard)
i am like 110% more interested in johnkat when there’s a meenah there who knew
a commission for odditycollector! :D
Hey the Internet check out my birthday present that I got myself.
I am pondering starting a Jade/John/Karkat sideblog, and I’m not asking if y’all think it is a good idea
'cause I totally know it is a good idea
but what to CALL it?
