CHAT ANONYMOUSLY ABOUT STUFF: General Anon Meme


It is what all the cool memes are doing nowadays!

The only rule is, don't be a total passive-aggressive douche. This isn't the place to spew all your vitriolic unrequited blackrom feelings for other members of of our dear fandom--or if you can't resist, at least don't mention them by name, that shit is just a little too petty. If it gets out of hand I'll ban you so fast Karkat would be impressed.

Other than that, hop to it, anons. And TITLE YOUR THREADS it could get pretty confusing all up in here if you didn't!



PS, as one kind anon pointed out, if you want to see the comments in chronological order instead of thread format, put ?view=flat after html in the URL. Or click here, whatever.

If you're interested, there are codes available that get the comments page to closely resemble the old default style. There are directions and the code right here - http://fail-fandomanon.livejournal.com/25451.html - and you can see what it looks like in the comments there.

Okay, they are back. Things are pretty much back to the way they were before, only fancier.

I've been away for a week so I didn't know about any of the site changes until now. It seems the kink meme is thinking of moving to dreamwidth? Should we follow them? Should I not bother and let captchalogue live out the rest of its quiet life here?

I'd prefer moving. The custom workaround is pretty flimsy, and they've said they plan to remove subject lines from custom styles as well next. Plus they're probably going to force some new awful change on us soon.

I'd prefer to stay, for now. The custom workaround works well enough here, we don't usually have threads long enough to break the layout. If LJ does go ahead with the proposed changes to S2 and takes away the subject lines there too, I'd say move but right now I say just wait and see what happens. (Which I believe is what the kink meme is doing right now as well.)

I'd stay for now, that way by the time you do move any issues with the community import process should be ironed out (assuming you want to import it across?)

Anyway, thanks for trying to fix things as much as is possible!

I know this is a facetious comment (probably) but I really did hope Kanaya would stay with Sollux and Aradia at the Green Sun instead of going with Rose & co.

If Kanaya had stayed behind I would be more sure that we'd actually get to see them doing something and maybe visit dead characters, because the narrative wouldn't leave Kanaya behind like it has repeatedly for Sollux and Aradia. I didn't ship Kanaya/Vriska but it would have been nice for them to meet up and reconcile in a dream bubble, because there wasn't really any resolution to that plot thread.

And it's not like Kanaya's really alive either, she has a big gaping hole in her abdomen. She's deader than Sollux is.

Kanaya can still talk to a dead Vriska, they'll be passing through bubbles on the three year journey. It will be like how Rose was piloting the moon but she could talk to a dream bubble Dave just fine. Even with Jack right behind them they wont slow down and have three years to sort out feelings or whatever with the dead.

Yeah, the Kanaya-Vriska thing was just an aside. I still think we're less likely to see any interaction between them if she is on the meteor, even if she technically has 3 years to do it. We don't have 3 years out of story-time, after all.

Sollux has a related problem. He HAS gone though a lot of shit over the course of the game and it's understandable why he'd rather stay at the Sun, but it doesn't feel like that's true because we haven't really seen him interact with other characters or voice any of his own opinions. We've just seen him get bullied by the narrative, basically, in very small, urgent chunks. Dialogue and character downtime give the illusion that time is passing, so when most of it gets skipped over we feel like it's all happening in a span of a few minutes, even if the story tells us otherwise. Kanaya on the other hand, we've seen her bother numerous people, have her heart broken, calm down Karkat with a story about troll Christmas Eve, etc.--her storyline feels way longer than Sollux's even though the same amount of time has passed for both of them and they are probably close in number of appearances. Aradia might be in a slightly better situation because she's had more talking scenes but she's still suffering from a lack of defined personality. I just think they would both benefit a lot from going with the rest on the meteor, or someone else who is treated as less of a plot device and more of a person [Kanaya] stayed with them to help. It'd link them more closely to the active area of the story in either case.

It just seems like a really odd storytelling decision to have Kanaya volunteer to stay but not go through with it? There are more benefits to stay than to leave? What are the benefits of her leaving anyway, aside from keeping Kanaya/Rose alive?

da - Kanaya leaving means she gets to satisfy her own goals re:not being a total loser, and also she gets to tie into the creation theme the game/Homestuck has going via her intent to try restoring the troll race. It's part of the hopefulness the comic has despite all the miserable death also inherent in it.

Thoughts on Jane's revival powers, and why the fuck Feferi didn't get any? (Other than "Hussie doesn't give a shit about feferi," because we already knew that?)

I wouldn't put it past him to have the answer be "Feferi's dreamself revived from the stabs, then died when Jack exploded Derse."

Actual answer, because he doesn't seem to know what any of the abilities do until he decides to use them.

Their classes are different. Feferi was the Witch, and Jane is the Maid. It's long been theorized the first part of the title affects how the aspect is expressed--Dave and Aradia, for example, don't use their powers the same way, even though they are both Heroes of Time.

Feferi's might have been like the Condesce's lifespan lengthening/truncating powers, because it's obvious they share the same aspect at least so why not title too; if so, Feferi can't revive the dead nor can she revive herself if mortally wounded. And she was killed instantly anyway so if she could theoretically stop herself from dying she couldn't have done it in that instance, it was too fast.

Aradia as the Maid followed a path of service & sacrifice, and fixing things that went wrong. A support class very unlike demonstrated Witch powers. The Maid of Life may be similar; Jane too is doomed to die a thousand deaths before her mission is complete, but instead of using time travel, she can resurrect when she dies. Maybe she can fix Jake too? Necromancy/ressurection powers puts her in square opposition to the Condesce (Derse's new Queen and major villain of Act 6) who can affect people while they are alive, but can't raise the dead.

There's also situational factors that might have influenced why Jane would live and Feferi die. Jack murdered Jane's extra life dream body while her waking self was safe at home. Feferi, on the other hand, had no dreamself and it was her waking body that died.

It wouldn't make sense for Feferi's game powers to be the same as the Condesce's, since she should already have the same bloodline power anyway.

There's also situational factors that might have influenced why Jane would live and Feferi die. Jack murdered Jane's extra life dream body while her waking self was safe at home. Feferi, on the other hand, had no dreamself and it was her waking body that died.

But...Feferi only had no dreamself backup because Jack murdered it while her waking self was safe on the asteroid.

Bloodline power? Huh?

It seemed to me the trolls had the same titles as their ancestors, and it's not the same for the humans because they were destined to play together in an 8 person session all along.

Being bisected is like... real catastrophic damage. And then she presumably fell 1000 feet to the ground, because she was floating way above Derse when Jack cut her in half. Way worse than a chest wound. Maybe there is a limit to how much your body can take before it revives?

I would not want to resurrect if I was missing my lower half, personally.

da

Bloodline powers might be a reference to how Gamzee got weird clown-producing-dream powers from his ancestral blood.

And anyway, Jane's dreamself's death was pretty quick, too. She got stabbed in the gut in one panel, and then the very next one we got the DEAD notice. She might not even be resurrecting, her Life-y thing might just be a tendency to explode when life ends, okay no that sounds pretty stupid out loud, wow.

The thing I found interesting was where the ball landed. Isn't that the same courtyard that they had the funeral for Dream Jake? Maybe if Dream Jane resurrects, then so too will Jake, by proxy of being close enough or something. Or maybe it'll only resurrect Jake, to keep in motif with the sacrificial/life-granted-to-others thing we've gotten so far.
