Everyone, you realize what this means, right?
Caliborn, as Lord English, is just cosplaying his OC.
The OC that he stole, from fanart someone drew.
Fanart that is wearing that coat, because it was seen in the Felt Intermission.
Let that sink in for a moment. Homestuck has actually established a closed paradox loop OUTSIDE OF THE COMIC PROPER.
your jake dialogue game is still so on point. that’s incredible
i cheated and looked at my jake vocab blog lol
ok no but now i’m actually imagining it the other way around and, i’m laughing, i want this fic oh my god
jake as a cosmic triangle possessing dirk……… he’d just like make dirk say a lot of silly movie lines and wear an indiana jones hat and dirk would quietly seethe
[10/19/14 1:59:18 PM] Laney: that classic game of “which member of your otp is the triangle and which is the possessed child”
[10/19/14 1:59:31 PM] Kendra: yes.
[10/19/14 1:59:32 PM] Laney: bipper au
[10/19/14 1:59:34 PM] Laney: for all ships
[10/19/14 1:59:47 PM] Kendra: dirkjake
[10/19/14 1:59:49 PM] Kendra: too easy
I JUST LOVE THAT CALIBORN REPRESENTS THE ANNOYING, AWFUL SIDE OF THE FANDOM, AND NOW HE’S BEING A SUPER YAOI SHIPPER AND DRAWING DAVEKAT AND GRUESOMELY KILLING OFF FEMALE CHARACTERS WHO ARE “GETTING IN THE WAY”
HUSSIE RECOGNIZES HOW AWFUL THE MAJORITY OF MALESLASH IN THIS FANDOM IS, AND HE’S USING OVERT METAPHORS TO TELL YOU TO STOP.
ah yes, such universally acknowledged and totally equivalent evils as
- explicitly misogynistic and sexualized depictions of women being murdered
- shipping slash pairings
like oh my god i haven’t really wanted to get into it about this update but i seriously can’t stand seeing hussie actively praised for this bullshit
like. who is this “maleslash fandom” we’re so happy to see taken down a peg. is it teenage girls? women? queer people? cause those are the groups that do the majority of the slash shipping in this and every fandom, and they are really not the same people who typically glorify and sexual and fixate on violence against women.
and even in cases where they are? like ~die for our ship~ type fandom trends?? thats still by and large a manifestation of internalized misogyny by girls and women and i feel like its kind of fucked up to act like hussie is giving those people some great feminist smackdown by bombarding them with the same toxic misogynistic imagery and ideology they’ve been so harmfully inundated with their whole lives
yeah, and the character who is supposed to represent teenage girls making up cool stories about characters they love is calliope, not caliborn. caliborn is the mra redditor asshole. and what’s happening here is the running joke of caliborn not understanding what being gay means or is
idk it feels like what’s actually happening is “haha caliborn is so misogynist that it’s making him do GAY STUFF” which is definitely, definitely not this fucked up “punish the slash shippers” thing that this person thinks, but IS kind of homophobic bc it’s using accidental gayness as like…. an ironic punishment for caliborn?? idk i’m not really sure what hussie’s doing here tbh
the thing with that upd8 is that some of it was legitimately funny and some of it was disgusting “”ironic”” sexism and homophobia so i’m not really that jazzed about it but also it was funny and made me interested in hearing what people think about homestuck again so.
