Everyone, you realize what this means, right?
Caliborn, as Lord English, is just cosplaying his OC.
The OC that he stole, from fanart someone drew.
Fanart that is wearing that coat, because it was seen in the Felt Intermission.
Let that sink in for a moment. Homestuck has actually established a closed paradox loop OUTSIDE OF THE COMIC PROPER.
you now cosplay your icon for every day of your life from now on how screwed are you
you’re motherfucking welcome.
and there is no need to ask, please use these, as long as you credit me as the one who scribbled all over the beta trolls to make em. i didn’t do all that bullshitting for nothing.
you may have seen some posts from me floating around Tumblr today, about how Andrew Hussie heavily referenced an old piece of art that I made with a friend, rukafais, for the latest update of Homestuck. The art in question is this, posted on DA in December 2010:
and the update art in question was this, posted October 18th 2014:
most of the posts going around either point out the inspiration, or are about my subsequent displeasure at the event. (I think there are more posts floating around than the ones I’ve linked, but those are ones that I feel are important!) the biggest beef that Ruka and I had about the event was that Hussie did not consult us at all, nor ask permission to involve our old work in the comic. I also took a bit of offense at the fact that this art was involved directly with Caliborn, a character who is often used to mock “shitty art” and poor design. Considering that the original drawing was made while I was a young teen, I feel like that’s a pretty big offense.
well, after a lot of hemming and hawing (and a horrible deluge of notes for me both on Tumblr and DA), Andrew has issued credit in the News section of MSPA:
he also explains his reasoning for this in this section, which I appreciated. I didn’t know where he was coming from before, so I’m glad I do now!
In addition, he also apologized to me (and partially to Ruka) on Twitter:
I was very glad to see this! I know that Hussie has been weird about this sort of thing in the past, but I’m glad that we were able to get a reaction from him by reaching out and raising awareness.
Thanks to everyone who spread awareness! please reblog this post to let people know that things have basically been resolved. and, sorry in advance for stretching folks’ dashes… hopefully this’ll be the last super serious post I have to make about this!
Lets get this image circulating
Homestuck rule #1 of Tumblr: you MUST reblog the father and creator of it.

Gisella Perl was forced to work as a doctor in Auschwitz concentration camp during the holocaust.
She was ordered to report ever pregnant women do the physician Dr. Josef Mengele, who would then use the women for cruel experiments (e.g. vivisections) before killing them.
She saved hundrets of women by performing abortions on them before their pregnancy was discovered, without having access to basic medical supplies. She became known as the “Angel of Auschwitz”.
After being rescued from Bergen-Belsen concentration camp she tried to commit suicide, but survived, recovered and kept working as a gynecologist, delivering more than 3000 babies.
So this girl walks up to another girl and says “Hey, have you heard of the Bechdel Test?”
And the other girl says, “Yeah, my boyfriend was telling me about it the other day!”
i don’t get it
I feel like this is an inside joke that I am not getting
