Homestuck has many great female characters, and, wonderfully, they often interact with each other. There are loads and loads of excellent f/f relationships to enjoy - a really refreshing thing and one of the things I love most about Homestuck. It’d be cool if we could represent that in the Homestuck Shipping World Cup.

As you can see, there are plenty of really great pairings that could use your support. I’d love to see some more female-centric works in the HSWC, and some more f/f teams! I know you shippers are out there. C’mon, let’s do this thing!!!

this post was made a while ago so in case it’s not up to date any more here is a link to the live-updating team roster: http://autumnfox.akrasiac.org/hswc/teams



like how much more obvious does this need to be made for people to get it?

Hot Topic is known amongst artist groups as one of the worst offenders of art theft in U.S. retailers. I know artists are important to What Pumpkin, and I’d imagine multiple cases of art theft would be a very big deal. The most well-known of the cases were stolen fan art from independent artists, which is the same demographic the Design Contest was aimed to.  I’m an artist myself and I wouldn’t want to support a store that steals from my peers.

The people running Hot Topic have zero respect to artists and to copyright law. They’ve been ripping-off independent artists’ storefronts, and continue do so. The whole company really should have been shut down long ago.

If you support artists, independent, fan artist, or any kind, you should oppose Hot Topic and MSPA’s association with them!

Tell What Pumpkin to kick Hot Topic out of the Design contest RIGHT NOW.

We have so little time left to stop this please tell them that it is completely unacceptable to do any sort of business with petty art thieves.

Even if you don’t know what to say, or if you think it would compromise the contestants; It won’t. Just please voice your thoughts in anyway you can put them. Don’t let Hot Topic get a dime out of Homestuck.

Close your eyes and imagine the best version of you possible. That’s who you really are, let go of any part of you that doesn’t believe it.

The weirdest case of biological essentialism rearing its head in my dating life was when I was talking to a cis lesbian foot fetishist and she told me she didn’t mind my penis because “human strap-on” (EUW) but she really wanted to know if I had girl feet instead of guy feet.

There’s no way in hell she would’ve talked to a cis woman like that. Even if said cis woman had size 14 feet, toes ruined from wearing poorly fitting shoes, cracked heels, fuzzy toes, all that.

Gendering body parts is weird and disgusting and I wish cis folk would stop.


Adrianne Haslet-Davis dances again for the first time since the Boston terrorist attack last year. 

When the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon finish line, Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost the lower half of her left leg in the explosion. She’s a ballroom dance teacher, and she assumed she would never dance again. With most prosthetics, she wouldn’t.

But Hugh Herr, of the MIT Media Lab, wanted to find a way to help her. He created a bionic limb specifically for dancers, studying the way they move and adapting the limb to fit their motion. (He explains how he did it here.)

At TED2014, Adrianne danced for the first time since the attack, wearing the bionic limb that Hugh created for her.  

Hugh says, “It was 3.5 seconds between the bomb blasts in the Boston terrorist attack. In 3.5 seconds, the criminals and coward took Adrianne off the dance floor. In 200 days, we put her back. We will not be intimidated, brought down, diminished, conquered or stopped by acts of violence.”

Amen to that, Hugh.
