really? you’re graduating??? congratulations!
Thanks, friends. And yes, I am really, FINALLY graduating.
GOOD FOR YOU!!!
congratulations on your writing a thing! writing things is hard and i am impressed you did it! yaaaaay! totes not congratulating you to procrastinate on finishing my own paper, that would be a baseless accusation to make - but seriously proud of you
You are a diamond in the rough, my friend. Too good to me, too good. Also you have the power to write whatever you want because your German prowess is intense.
my politics of southern africa class has probably made my economics lean real heavily towards marxism, which is always a fun time
Yeah, one of those “HUAC would have investigated me if I were a famous person in the 50’s” kinds of times
Is the thing done?
Not at all! Like I said in my tags, only a small part of the thing got done. It’s impossible that I’ll finish my whole thesis in time. I’m just finishing as much as I can in little chunks.
Thanks to everyone who responded to my recent text post so kindly. Tumblr is being terrible and I can’t reply to anything, but I love and respect each of you and I’m glad that you are here!
which LARP did you go to?
The Prince Comes of Age! The high fantasy teen birthday party game with lots of romance and magic and political intrigue and shit
According to folks in the con suite the pirate larp was lots of fun; I hope it was the same for you!

Yeah I mean to be fair there are /so many/ Homestuck URLs that it’s easy to see a pattern when there isn’t one because they stick out. But also parts of this fandom are freakishly racist and that’s something I will always have to cringe at.
You said it, on both counts.
Did you have a specific experience with some fandumb recently, or just general annoyance?
A couple of things popped up on my dash today
Most recently someone left a comment like “Isn’t everyone a little bit racist?” on one of the non-Homestuck blogs I follow and she was like “Why is it always the Homestuck URLs”
Unfortunately that’s a legit question for her to ask and that’s partially why I’m particularly wordy and pissed about it today
THANK YOU FINALLY SOMEONE WHO IS NOT OBSESSED WITH IT I MEAN WHYYYYY
If I think about it I understand why people I know really like it. The whole female friendship and bonding through music thing. And some of the characters had a lot of potential, some of the dialogue was really snappy…
but MAAAAAN, for whatever reason all of that did not add up for me. The characters veered into caricature territory way too often for me. I did not appreciate how it treated its lesbians. And there was something lacking in the overall narrative, though I can’t put my finger on it.
I’m glad someone else is baffled by it too!!!
