I really like this gif because Stitch does that little squinty thing that animals do when they’re really happy and relaxed and you can tell that he’s having such a superb time playing that little ukulele

For more accuracy, you can cut out fewer layers at a time by using the gray outlines in addition to the black ones. I highly recommend doing that.

All the alpha kid snowflakes together

My favorite of these four is definitely the Jake flake, followed by the Roxy one.

A foreboding feeling somehow came out in my snowflake for Jake English. I had really liked how my Dave flake had the crow wings flaring out the sides and I wanted to get a little of that sensation in another one. The Hope wings provided such an opportunity. I played with negative and positive to get the most out of the Skulltop outline, and then thought to combine it with the Aspect symbol.  It came out feeling quite threatening with an image of utter destruction superimposed over one of belief and existence. Considering bladekindeyewear’s theory that Jake will serve as host body for Lord English’s entry into the session, I found the contrast suitable. The pistols were standard since all of my beta and alpha kid flakes include their strife specibi, and the bowtie was a natural themed spaaaaaace filler. It really came out coherent as my snowflakes go.

I used a scan of the actual finished product instead of a computer rendering for the doubters. Cutting out spirals is annoying.

I recommend using a strong pair of medium to large scissors since they give enough horse to cut through the layers.

This snowflake is one of a 21-part series I made. More on that later.

It makes more sense to put it at more similar time with the other flakes.

(I’m having a conversation with myself here)

Let’s talk about childhood grief and how Hussie is not only addressing it, but also discussing the different forms of it. It’s no surprise at this point that Homestuck has transformed from a zany and relatively weird fan-driven comic into a giant epic focused not only on an incredibly complicated story, but also heavily upon the development of characters. It’s fairly obvious—especially in the newer acts—that these developments are keyed towards the readers as inspiration and relatability in their own lives. Whether it be an addiction or a bad relationship or your own self-esteem, Homestuck has probably given a shout out to your problem at some point. Because as much as we complain about how being a teenager is hard and no one understands, with that many well-developed characters Hussie was bound to hit a majority of the common teenage and young adult issues. However, the most notable of these issues, or at least of the ones apparent in the recent updates, is the idea of moving on from your childhood. Which is something I, as someone who has had a breakdown every year around her birthday since she was five, relate and recognize as a serious problem, and as something I’ve observed everyone handles differently. In fact, all of the of the eight kids are experiencing it  some way right now.

John delving himself back into ConAir and Ghostbusters and shit he’s probably told himself he’s too old for, reminiscing over his lost childhood. Rose drinking her problems away (in order to mimic her late mother, to add salt to the wound) and regretting her rebellious attitude and need to grow up faster than what’s healthy. Dave, sweet precious Dave, who got thrust back into his old room only to ramble to himself about the things he will never get to do and the things he took for granted in the past. Dave, who is now completely frozen and unwilling to move forward towards his destiny, both physically and emotionally. The Alpha Kids together, who learned the very unsugar-coated way (punintended) that there is no easy way out and you just have to keep moving forward.

And now we have Jake alone, who just wants things to go back to the way they used to be. He wants to go back to his island, but that’s contradictory to the plot. The whole point of the game is to grow, isn’t it? Jake is at a point that could be considered what the comic defines as a catharsis. You can either stay frozen, or you can push through your breaking point and pray things will get better. Jake is experiencing very human emotions right now, but he can still grow from this breakdown—hell, he can still continue to grieve his childhood—but he cannot let it stop him, especially considering many of us still believe him to be a key piece in winning this very, very long game.

This is getting kinda long, but I just want to share my love for recognition for problems like this, and the fact that while the kids are working through them they are not easily solvable. Stories are often focused around a character’s journey out of adolescence, but more often than not have the character inhumanly excited about something that really fucking sucks. Media almost glamorizes the future. But in truth it sucks to grow up. It sucks to have responsibility. It sucks to admit that you were a naive little kid for your entire childhood. It sucks to admit you never appreciated it like you should have. The fact that this comic not only acknowledges it, but has a large percentage of characters deal with it (all differently, mind you, there is no such thing as two characters with the same personality in Homestuck) is actually really inspiring. You can argue about Homestuck and its worth a lot of ways, but at the end of the day underneath all the insanity and weird time shit, there’s something completely real in there.

Okay, ramble over. Point is Homestuck is really rad.

New arrangement is posted! This one is of Gold Pilot, composed by First Turn Fold. The beginning of the original was used in [S] Act 6 Act 6 Intermission 1, but my arrangement is of the full 5-minute piece.

Oh my word…
I seriously teared-up during this. You have done what I’ve failed to: Arrange Gold Pilot in any cohesive way for solo piano. And it’s absolutely Gorgeous!
Thank you so much, my friend. It’s an honor to be so expertly covered!

Thank you! I just spent several minutes being very excited that you found this and liked it.  Thank you for having written the piece, and for your kind words. I enjoyed arranging and learning it, and it’s very rewarding to read feedback from the composer himself.

If you have any interest, here’s the sheet music for my arrangement.

Cool fact: the reason why I scan these flakes after I draw them on the computer and cut them out is to demonstrate that they’re really not too hard to make.

Moonsetter (8 bit arrangement)

memeaesthetik:

question: is Moonsetter just as cute when it’s arranged as an 8bit track?

answer: yes.

originally composed by Toby “Radiation” Fox

midi thanks to the mspa forums (plus a lot of modification where it was just wrong)

How can you not enjoy “Moonsetter” in any form?

togrutajedi asked:

This is slightly picky, the workings of a pedantic linguistics student, but technically the verb forms for singular, neutral they, even though they are the same spoken and written, are technically different than that of plural nouns since they have different functions.

stormingtheivory:

It took me a moment to figure this out but I think I get what you’re saying—they’re the same word but they’re NOT the same word because they’re not functioning as a plural verb, yeah? So even though they look like the plural form, by virtue of context… they aren’t. Am I understanding you correctly?

Yes, you are understanding correctly. From a semantic context, they are different even though they appear the same on a surface level. This would be more apparent in a gloss where words are labeled with a short meaning and their grammatical role in context.
