Being a fan of a series for so long that the characters who used to be older than you are now younger than you.
Think about it, eventually this will happen with lord of the rings
Elrond. Dumbledore. Gandalf. Really, you can’t do that with series that have immortal characters. It would be cool if I got older than Bilbo one day, but I by no means expect it. Then there’s Smeagle…
I told my mom a shirt fit her really well and then I realized that it didn’t actually fit her that well but it fit her exactly the way that shirts always fit me and I guess what I’m saying is genetics suck can we all just be the same shape now please?
All right, big boy
Sadly, I’m pretty sure I could drink Cas under the table.
Firstly, this is literally what happened to me, only with wine. Secondly, he should have a drinking contest with Legolas.
yahoo think about what you’re doing before you buy tumblr and encounter these people
Social justice bloggers, get your fingers ready. Indie artists, reach for your supplies. Vegans, this is the only time we will actually ask you to express the indignation you feel that so many people still aren’t vegan without editing your words for others’ comfort.
Nightbloggers, step away from the caffeine but stay up just as late.
Hetalians, ready your globes.
So, I have a friend who has Celiac disease, but that isn’t the point of this post.
And before it was identified as Celiac disease, she felt really crummy all the time and also got really depressed, which is also not the point of this post.
My point is, feeling crummy makes people upset. Snappy. Crabby, even.
Who do we know who’s crabby?
Now let’s talk about the hemospectrum, which I promise actually is the point of this post. Sort of. This is a fan-theory I’ve had for a long time and I like it a lot, okay?
Karkat is a little ball of hate pretty much all the time before the post-SGRUB adventure on the asteroid. He is always cranky and says things like, “I hate you more than I hate myself” to insult Sollux. He’s a little bitch. But I think there’s a reason for that. After all, Nepeta likes people and is open about it. Feferi likes people and is open about it. Yeah, he doesn’t want people to see his blood, but then he just has to not get cut.
You know who else is a little bitch for reasons other than simple teen angst (coughcoughEridancough)? Sollux. Sollux, who has migraines probably half the time (if everything else in his life being in twos is any indication). Migraines. Ouch.
Blood color indicates lifespan. Red-blooded trolls live for a few decades and fuschia-bloods live for thousands of years. The hemospectrum is also a lifespan-spectrum. A lot of people put Karkat between Sollux and Nepeta in their lineups because I guess that’s where Cancer goes, but as far as rank goes, he’s below even Aradia. She would be culled by a particularly rude highblood, but he would be culled by any highblood who wasn’t like Feferi. And I think the same is true of his blood: it ranks below Aradia’s. It will keep him alive for a shorter period of time than a red-blood’s lifespan.
I think the reason Karkat’s so angry all the time is that he feels crappy all the time. I think he’s in physical pain, but doesn’t talk about it because he doesn’t want to appear weak for fear of being culled. I think he has a whole slough of genetic illnesses and susceptibilities that keep him from being as lively as everyone from Nepeta on up. I think he’s also very aware that he’s going to die young; I saw a chart that predicted red-bloods would have a lifespan of about 40 or so, so I can easily imagine a candy-blood dying in his 30s or even, since his blood is a mutation that isn’t supposed to exist, in his 20s or even his teens. As he matures, he faces death and realizes that living in a way that helps others is all he can do and he gets a lot more selfless when there’s less threat of being culled, but that doesn’t change the fact that he really does have a disability that will shorten his lifespan and lower his quality of life.
Thanks for reading; I know it was a lot of words, but I really like this fan-theory and it makes a lot of sense to me.
Everyone on my Tumblr dash, PLEASE watch this. Especially if you are a creative artist:
Adobe is going to scrap their hard copies (disks) for their software (Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Flash), and have you pay a subscription for the latest software called the Adobe Creative Cloud. $50 per month. Could you really afford such an expense in the long run?
This is really disturbing. Please hear what he has to say, it really is a serious situation for working artists. Pass this along so others may know about the Adobe Creative Cloud and how horrible it is.
Yep… Just went to see how much Flash costs. You know, to just buy the program? Guess what? After spending a while looking, it appears that you CAN’T anymore. You have to pay an outrageous subscription fee. I hate adobe. Is there a petition going around to stop this nonsense? Because I want to sign it.
Thanks! I know a lot of artists and people who like art follow me. You guys should go sign that.
Today I just signed the petition in the voice against the Adobe Creative Cloud. For those who are not familiar with what the new Creative Cloud can do to you as an artist, I really suggest you watch this video.
For those who have seen, reblogged, faved, here’s the link (as shown in the previous reblog) to sign the petition. Anything can happen, Adobe really needs to know that many artists are not supportive of them controlling not just the software..but the content worked on the Cloud.
When Sollux woke up to learn that she had been videochatting like that, he was super embarrassed and thought everyone was going to make a big deal out of it, but Aradia had actually only been talking to Feferi, who was happy for the both of them.
