the best part about the inevitable chaos caused by hussie posting the final homestuck update is going to be people who weren’t visibly homestucks coming out of the woodwork to talk about it. talking and acting as though we were homestucks all along. you wake up one morning and we all have fucking shipping grids. your phone rings and you pick up and your fucking grandma is going to talk to you about rosemary. welcome to hellstuck
accidentally typing the letter 8 in the middle of a word and feeling the unholy spirit of vriska serket come over you

i resized the damn things wrong so when you click it bigger there is a white strip on top… damn….
I'm so tired of being dead.
Did you mean make it reblogable?
Adding on a few other notes to express the hours of google searches Hussie must’ve gone through to name his characters-
Pollux and Castor were the original Gemini (gemini being Latin for, of course, twins), and were turned into the Gemini constellation after they died. Hussie just switched a letter to get Sollux Captor. (Incidentally, John has a poster in his room for the Nicolas Cage movie Face-Off, in which another Pollux and Castor appear.) And the Sanskrit name for this constellation? Mithuna.
Doomsday is supposed to take place at the Hebrew Mt. Megido (you can see the etymological connection with Armageddon.)
There’s a disease in fish calledbrown blood disease - caused by chemicals called nitrates.
Hercules fought a giant crab named Carcinus, after whom the Cancer constellation is named - disregarding Anglicized spelling, the crab would be named Karkinos. The alpha star in this constellation is called, of course, Kankri. Vantas, on the other hand, is a drug used to treat prostate cancer. Interpret that as you will.
The Latin word for the catnip family is Nepeta, and in various European languages, the word for lion is some variant of ‘leijon’.
Sophocles wrote of a blind prophet called Tiresias (pronounced Tee-REZ-ee-ahs), and there’s a type of pyralspite (a garnet known for being red) called Pyrope.
There’s a breed of sheep called the Damara.
The Latin word for both spider and spiderweb is Aranea.
The Aquarius constellation is ruled over by the planet Saturn, which is named after the leader of the Titans in Roman mythology. In Greek mythology, Saturn is called Cronus.
Both of Vriska’s romantic interests have been heroes of Breath. The purpose of breathing, for humans at least, is to take in oxygen - an element with 8 protons, 8 neutrons, and 8 electrons.
There is a Latin play in which a boy discovers his sexual affinity for horses - the name? Equus.
The Latin word for cuttlefish is Feferi.
The Greek muse of epic poetry is named Calliope.
And, the most fun of all: la tula is the Spanish word for a dick.
