This one time I decided to experiment using tumblr tags as a story medium.
Whatever the results, it’s hard to link them together. So here we are.
Original cosplay post, with better resolution and credit links to the models, is right here.
I wasn’t done though. (The post is private because I made it, then thought “no, that is too creepy to attach directly onto a stranger’s cosplay post.” Indirectly here, though, apparently I think is okay?)
Original of the post below is no longer accessible a year later so I cannot link to it. It was a cute gif, so D:< is my feelings about that.
(In case anyone is wondering: No, the tags on my dash are not usually giant. It just seemed the easiest way to keep them legible in the screenshot.)
oh god i can’t
karkat honey no
oh my god
WHY DOES THIS HAVE OVER 200 NOTES
John Egbert: MASTER OF DISGUISE.
Gasp! That fine upstanding young troll with the dapper beagle puss?
Who has seen Shallow Hal? (Don’t see Shallow Hal.)
So in Human Shallow Hal, this jackass gets hypnotized to see the good-person scale in place of the media-defined-beauty scale and then there’s an hour of fat jokes.
May I posit that in Troll Shallow Hal, we follow the adventures of a casteist jerkass who gets mind-powered into seeing, ah, worthiness? usefulness to the Empire? instead of bloodhue (… then there’s an hour of lowblood jokes).
So troll jerkass gets involved with someone they see as near-royal, but who is rust-red or MAYBE A MUTANT EVEN, who is not used to being treated with such deference BUT THEY THINK THEY COULD GET USED TO IT BECAUSE THEY ARE A QUALITY (“QUALITY”) TROLL IS THE CONCEIT.
(The whole scene where low-caste crush reveals this terrible secret in awkward, naked trust - but the jerkass only views it as they are MORE royal than previously assumed - LOLOLOL - is especially poorly handled I bet)
And then in the end all the characters are killed for subversion of the hemospectrum, it is very appropriate and satisfying.
In conclusion: probably a Equius/Karkat romcom
(and George Costanza can be played by Equius’ even more jerkass friend Vriska)
(only in this version no one gets murdered because D: )
Let’s talk about whats really interesting instead:
you speak to my soul
someone should prompt it on the kink meme or something
I don’t care about the foursome for itself but
what i love about karkat<>kanaya is how they’re probably better as friends. but does that stop them from fantasizing about it. and tying themselves into knots over it. and being friends. and dropping everything to run through burning forests together because neither of them can fly. IT DOES NOT
This is all completely accurate I have been trying since yesterday to decide if we are the worst or the best at shipping.
YOU’RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.
but really… all that fanart of her holding his head in her lap on couches while he cries… when really, kanaya reacts to a crying karkat by tying him up and leaving him in the trunk of rose’s car.
Never mind the image of Rose unpacking her groceries to excavate bag by bag a bound and silenced Karkat Vantas: Rose firming her lips into a narrow line and wordlessly closing the trunk again.
I bet this makes Rose and Kanaya getting pulled over by the police for speeding away from a bank robbery even more of an awkward situation for all involved.
they fell asleep watching twilight.
(but I will do this one because it came in before I asked for non-anon prompts)
the sex scene went horribly glitched
when, behind Harley’s ears, Karkat scritched
he had wrongass conclusions
about horn-placed protrusions,
and her leg thrashed and violently twitched
Our Heroes commenced with loud flailings
and ranged arguments about failings
but she felt like a mook
mashing ice to his nook
thus, I fear, was the end of ‘night’s pailings
i like the idea of trolls displaying aggression and submission the exact opposite of the way humans do. if their head is bowed, they’re being threatening because the horns are angled toward you. if their heads are raised, it’s because they’re showing their necks and indicating submission. if they’re glaring at you like the karkat in the bottom left then you’re really in trouble because he is 100% done with your shit john.
credit goes to asuka for coming up with this in how she portrays kk in battlefield terra
