anyone between the ages of 18 and 25 (via prettyboystyles)
Remember that one time Vriska died in a heroic attempt to get revenge because Jack killed Terezi and Karkat because a lot of the Homestuck fandom doesn’t
Remember how it was her fault they died at all? Or maybe how the universe wouldn’t allow her to do something good, because killing her was better? Or maybe how Terezi felt remorse for having to kill her, even though Vriska wouldn’t have given a shit if it were the other way around? Remember how she was a worthless bitch and her death was the most benevolent thing Andrew ever did with her character? Because not enough of the fandom gets that.
Hey guys, remember how Vriska was upset about killing Tavros? Remember how she killed trolls to feed her lusus and keep her happy? Remember how Terezi killed people for “justice” and rigged the system? REMEMBER HOW VRISKA WANTED TO GO OFF AND FIGHT JACK TO SAVE HER FRIENDS BECAUSE SHE WAS TIRED OF WAITING AND DIDN’T REALLY WANT TO WAIT TO DIE BECAUSE SHE KNEW HE WOULD FIND THEM, JUST LIKE ERIDAN DID? REMEMBER HOW VRISKA DIDN’T KNOW THAT JACK WOULD FOLLOW THE FAIRY DUST TO THE METEOR AND KILL KARKAT AND TEREZI? REMEMBER HOW SHE DOVE HEAD FIRST INTO THE FIGHT AFTER SEEING THEIR BODIES? REMEMBER HOW SHE GAVE HER BELOVED DICE TO JOHN. HER BELOVED DICE THAT WAS LEFT TO HER BY HER ANCESTOR. ALSO, HOW MANY KIDS DID VRISKA KILL? OH WAIT. NONE.WHAT ABOUT TEREZI? SHE GOT JOHN KILLED AND DOOMED THAT WHOLE TIMELINE.
VRISKA KILLED BECAUSE SHE HAD TO TO STAY ALIVE ON ALTERNIA. SHE DIDN’T KILL ANYONE ONCE SHE GOT INTO THE GAME. SHE TRUSTED TAVROS, SOMEONE SHE WAS TRYING TO HELP (in her own weird way), WITH HER LIFE/DEATH. AND REMEMBER HOW TAVROS TRIED TO KILL HER FIRST??? I REMEMBER.
DON’T YOU EVER LET ME HEAR YOU TALK SHIT ABOUT HOW VRISKA WAS A HORRIBLE CHARACTER AND HOW “HER DEATH WAS THE MOST BENEVOLENT THING ANDREW EVER DID WITH HER CHARACTER.” SHE WAS A GOOD FUCKING CHARACTER AND THE FANDOM HAS THIS ETERNAL IMAGE OF HER BEING A BITCH WHO DESERVES TO DIE AND FRANKLY, IT PISSES ME OFF.
ugh thank you
MOTHERFUCKER GOD BLESS
HEY REMEMBER HOW THEY’RE ALL MULTIFACETED AND DEEP CHARACTERS THAT CAN RARELY BE SUMMED UP BY ONE EVENT WHO ALL HAVE HIGHS AND LOWS IN THEIR STORYLINE.
— All the Trolls Go God-Tier: The Mituna Method —
)(er Condescension just used Gemini psionics to blow Dirk and Roxy into the God-TIers, with the symbol belonging to Sollux and Mituna featuring prominently.
EDIT: luniasm said:
2 screens showing 2 different perspectives, 2 sets of 2 quest beds in 2 different crypts, 2 sets of 22 updates, 2 pawns of Lord English, 2 beams of energy, all the aftermath of combining 2 jujus - the references to our 2 Doom players, and thus Doom itself, are incredibly prevalent in these past few days.
And depending on Andrew’s intentions, this reference may be foreshadowing one of the only ways that the remaining living trolls can ascend.
You see, we still don’t know what Mituna’s sacrifice was:
ARANEA: The Heir of Doom was once a powerful psionic. He was gifted with vision twofold, and had strong prophetic insights wherever a 8leak future was concerned. He had much to say when it came to warning us a8out the path of doom and destruction we were all headed for, 8ut no one took him very seriously. 8ut one day he lost all those a8ilities when he 8adly overexerted himself. It’s hard to get any specifics from him, 8ut indications are that he applied every last 8it of energy he had toward some great act of heroism, saving us all from some looming threat. Not only did his exertion permanently 8urn out is psychic a8ilities, 8it it left him somewhat… er. Incoherent.
MEENAH: yea i always wondered what happened there
MEENAH: anyone ever get to the bottom a that
ARANEA: No. The entire incident is shrouded in mystery. From his limited and scattered accounts of what happened, it seems very likely that Kurloz was with him at the time, and the only eye witness. And of course it’s impossi8le to get any relia8le information out of him. I guess we may never know, sadly.
And so far, the nature of Sollux and the Helmsman’s sacrifices were just to accelerate a ship or a meteor. So what could Mituna possibly have done? As an Heir of Doom, one who theoretically invites change in death and sacrifice, who could he have saved? Perhaps our current heroes, the ones fighting for the fate of reality, instead of the alpha trolls?
Mituna could have launched Prospit’s moon out of his own session at over the speed of light!
If it reaches the combined alpha kids’ session, and our embattled trolls - some of them quite possibly dying and in need of help - examined it… they would find many things! Sad detritus from the alpha trolls and dead prospitans. Wall scrawlings, perhaps red ones about triggers, or teal ones about s1ck gr1nds.
But in the center of the moon? As the identical dreamself affiliations for the alpha trolls in the Ministrife showed us, they’d find Quest Crypts, one each for Blood, Rage, Mind, Space, Breath, Light, and possibly Doom.
Terezi and Karkat, one previously wishing she had the chance to show the other around Prospit? Gamzee, the ambiguous is-he-or-isn’t-he-god-tier, an ally of Kurloz, the only one to witness Mituna’s sacrifice? Kanaya, the one who will need to repair the breach in Paradox Space: a task so monumental that it’s hard to imagine her doing so without godhood? Even Tavros, set to revive alongside Vriska and fully realize his Page of Breath title to play a Peter-Pan-like role, helping Aradia guide the living and dead to freedom through the breach as if to Neverland? In the leadup to the final fight, ALL of them could ascend!
The only real restriction?
Whether Andrew wants them to ascend. It’s the only requirement… we can’t be sure if Quest Crypts that don’t belong to you still allow ascent, so whether they do or not is essentially at Andrew’s discretion. And though the kids’ total, eightfold ascension certainly increases the trolls’ chances, we can’t be completely sure that he wishes this to be the case.
But we could take an educated guess.
As the answer to the Ultimate Riddle would imply, only those willing to put their lives on the line for the sake of affecting how reality unfolds - or perhaps those with others who believe in them enough to will this on their behalf - circumstantially ascend to Godhood. And also implied in said theory, the trolls failed to mature and lost their game, entering a game state similar to some sort of ‘overtime’ where those whose wills would least - or least justly - affect reality amidst their peers were challenged and culled. Their session didn’t justify their ascension.
However, by fighting alongside the humans in the final reckoning of Paradox Space, they would earn renewed justification for ascension. And thus, the story’s themes - and Andrew Hussie - might finally, at the eve of the most desperate moment, allow them to level up.

Of course the GameBro would give everyone a chance to Level Up. Of course. “When you’re outta quarters, he’s got your back!”
Thanks to Mituna, every living troll could Ascend!
- Cities shutting down the subway and refusing to lower bridges when potholes get too bad and nothing is done about them because hey that hurts and someone needs to fix it.
- Cities opening old abandoned subway stations and venting hot air above ground during the winter…
