Adventures in the life of a quiet fanboy named Dirk. Sometimes I like to make art (watercolors or oil pastels) which I'll post here, but mostly this blog is for reblogging stuff I think is cool/funny/interesting, and the occasional essay about the things I think about.

Oookay so well today I remembered that certain sea creatures have blue blood instead of red, and after doing a little research on the subject, I realized that the entire troll hemospectrum could possibly be feasibly explained with different amounts of the different proteins hemoglobin, hemocyanin and hemerythrin! Sorry if it’s a little too sciency for one’s tastes but do let me know if I’ve gotten anything wrong!
(If it’s something like ‘individual organisms can’t produce more than one oxygen-binding protein at once’ well my friend please do remember that the subject matter is a species from a different universe that breeds in a similar manner to ants, bees and termites, and we can probably find a way to work around it anyhows)

I knew it was a chemical! I’ve been searching my textbooks for an answer, and now it makes more sense then ever.

This is a fantastic headcanon because it also sets up a system of precise measurement for determining whether or not a troll’s blood color falls into a particular caste.
I can imagine grubs who are suspected of being slightly mutated polybloods would have to undergo tests to make sure their blood chemistry is within a tolerable margin of error in order to avoid culling.

gonna be straight with all of you: the biggest failure of Homestuck is that this sprite didn’t make it into Seer: Descend and therefore did not produce a fandom trend of Rose pinching John’s cheeks. terrible.

everyone needs to reblog this post until it is big enough to crush tumblr

A Masquerade idea

Though I’ll likely never cosplay as John Egbert myself, I had an idea a couple of days ago for a really cool Masquerade/Cosplay Contest skit/walk-on one could do with a God Tier John cosplay.

You’d use the songs “Stormspirit/Heir Conditioning" from the "Strife!" Homestuck album as your entry music. At first, the stage would be dark, with the John cosplayer backlit with bright blue, making his silhouette stand out, and during the "Stormspirit" part, the John cosplayer would twirl and manipulate a pair of blue dancer’s ribbons, simulating The Windy Thing. Once "Heir Conditioning" started, you’d drop the ribbons, and pick up your Warhammer of Zillyhoo. The lights would come up at this point, and you’d start swinging the hammer around as though you’re fighting Imps and whathaveyou in time with the music. Obviously, you’d have to fade out the music before it was finished, because it’s a long song to try and swing a huge hammer around to, but nevertheless, I think it would be a cool way to have a Homestuck cosplay in a Masquerade.

What always makes me laugh about this sequence of panels is that a “Ridiculous Hat” is what started Jack Noir on the path that eventually turned him into what he is now in the first place.

Homestuck Meteor Headcanon

toochstuck:

charlesoberonn:

The first few days on the meteor were nothing but the trolls and humans correcting each other’s pronunciations of their names.

KANAYA: “Roose Is That You?”
ROSE: “Ka-neigh-uh?”
DAVE: “so Kare-kot we finally meet face to face”
KARKAT: “THATS NOT MY FUCKING NAME DAHVEE.”
TEREZI: “OF COURS3 1T 1S! >:]”
DAVE: “thanks Tearuhzeye”
TEREZI: “>:[“
