p209: The four fabrics in the bin next to Harry are pink, green, blue, and red, which the astute will notice do not match the typing colours of the omega kids (ignoring the blue and the (wrong shade) of red — and no, these fabrics don’t perfectly match the aspect colours either, but they’re closer to the aspect colours than they are to the omega kid colours by a large margin. These are hues evocative of the aspect palettes more than they are direct rips). I’m not sure why, but Medium makes the fabric nearest Harry look grey — it’s green, I promise.

p221 This was a seriously cool moment and the fight was excellently written. This section is also so long that I feel the need to break it up with another picture, so I’m sorry for getting a bit carried away here. Genuinely can’t help myself. Every time I write an essay-type piece like this, I relive a little of the high I got in my year 13 Scholarship English class and it’s all that keeps me going. Huffing on the fumes of the past. Will anything in life be as good as the approval of your favourite high school English teacher?

p4355 If not for Rose’s vision, it would have been impossible for the meteor to navigate the Void. At best, they would be trapped there for eternity, and at worst, they would’ve been killed by Bec Noir. Maybe that’s the other way around. We saw how worked up Rose got when her powers didn’t work towards the end of the comic, especially regarding Jasprose’s improbable creation. Rose hates being kept in the dark or unable to understand something. She will go to any length for understanding, demonstrated by her stint with alcoholism (though that was in part a traumatic coping mechanism, I’m sure). Losing her powers would fuck with her, especially when they would be incredibly helpful as the leader of an antifascist rebellion (whose secret daughter is in the care of the enemy).

p229 These poor women are walking disasters, just like every other one of their friends. Nobody here is anywhere close to well-adjusted, nobody here knows how to communicate — not even with romantic partners or vulnerable family members — and none of them know how to ask for what they want (if they can even admit to themselves what that is in the first place). Even Rosemary, the best relationship in the story, can have some major faults. That is not to say that any of these kids are bad people, or that any of these relationships are destined to fail. Homestuck is, fundamentally, an optimistic bildungsroman.

p230 Kanaya, for her part, is entirely Kanaya! I think sometimes her fanonization leaves out the part where she is the most sarcastic character in the entire comic? This is her most loaded line to date, which I promise if you’ve forgotten this part of her character, is really saying something. People think her ‘willingness to forgive and forget’ is OOC, but she hasn’t forgiven, nor forgotten! She has expressed that she is upset! That her trust has been betrayed, and that it has hurt her! But recall, having near-helplessly watched Rose’s alcoholism undermine their relationship on the meteor, finally at her wits’ end after one too many drunken blunders, this was Kanaya’s only response when Rose asked if she was going to end things. You also have to consider the circumstances: Kanaya found out off-screen and discussed the whole shebang with Rose and Jade. She is, as is totally in line with her character, 100% understanding of Jade’s desire and Rose’s misguided attempt to help her realize it. She’s hardly going to waste time rehashing all of her intimate anger and misery in front of her friends and family, including their daughter, when they need to save a kidnapped child from a fascist dictator. That’s her first priority. Don’t believe for a second that the drama has been resolved. Don’t believe for a second that this is the end of Rosemary either.

I’m Not Okay (I Promise)
