This really just made me stop and think about how much of a beautiful story this is beneath all the silly jokes and layers upon layers of constant humor. Not that I have a problem with the humor, but sometimes, in order for you to like something even more and be able to learn from it, you have to look beneath the general surface of whatever it may be, and see what messages lie there. A song that really helps me to do this, and practically brings me to tears when listening to and comparing it to thoughts of the Homestuck trolls, is Pretend by Lights. If you really listen to the words, it just may bring you to tears. I love this work, though. It's so incredibly touching, and it's so hard to think about All of Sollux's loses. It seems as if every time he begins to love, death cuts him short. Part of the reason I love Homestuck so much is because it truly makes me feel, and though most of the feelings it causes are that of sadness and pain, I can't help but be addicted to them with every fiber of my being. Funny how a silly, little web comic can effect people to such a severe extent. Also, for more beautiful music, if you haven't already heard of her, Lights has some pretty lovely music that can be relateable to HS. Most just fail to see it because people have a habit of neglecting the actual lyrics of music, these days. Keep up the wonderful work! :J
hm! I will be sure to look them up. I am actually quite surprised too at how much this story has just drug me down with it and just makes me keep wanting more. I hated the story when I first read it, just like all the jokes, but I kept chugging along and the more I read, the more I began to understand the humor, and just keep loving them. Then the next step was understand which characters relate to you more and in my group of friends we all have our 'patron' troll and 'kid' if you will and that just makes you love them more. Poor Sollux never catches a break, and he's hard sometimes to be my favorite troll with so many bad things happening, and now currently him being knocked out and useless when really I just want to see him beat the snot out of people which we've never actually seen him do. I guess the curse of a minor troll? Oh well.. I just want to see more art with Sollux and I think he has every right to be cranky and bipolar like he is with all the crap he gets put through. Such a funny way a small webcomic can bring people together to a common fanbase. I want to do more serious Sollux pictures, but I am really wary about doing them and my lack of how I want to portray the picture. Thanks again for the really involved comment! ^^
Are you kidding? I LOVE how you draw Sollux! You make him so adorable, you do. In fact, I'd love to see more of him from you, in the future. Also, I wish life was Homestuck. And we could all be our fan troll or our human fan character. Everything would be so perfect and we could all kick butt together. Le sigh~ If only.
Sollux crying is like the worst ever though. I always imagined him to be so logical that he would think something through before he started crying. And this is just a breakdown of all his nerdy awesome shell. D8
