FOR THE RECORD I WAS 100% RIGHT ABOUT VRISKA AND TAVROS BECAUSE I AM A MASTER OF READING SOCIAL CUES

Wow, I know it's an old joke by now but uh it's after 2:30 and I'm awake and TVTropes is responsible, what a surprise. Also Homestuck. The two combined are probably the most sleep-depriving force in the universe. But I guess I'm here for a reason.



"It's even more meta than that. It may be reasonable to call the Homestuck fandom community a Launcher of a Thousand Shippers, for its tendency to make shippers and romance speculators out of ordinary readers that swore they'd never do such a thing, and certainly not for a webcomic about a bunch of human and alien kids."

SERIOUSLY NO KIDDING I HAVE NEVER BEEN A SHIPPER EVER. I HAVE JOKED ABOUT IT DOZENS OF TIMES BUT THERE HAVE BEEN MAYBE TWO OR THREE SHIPS IN MY ENTIRE LIFE THAT I HAVE HALF A RAT'S BUTT ABOUT.

AND THEN HOMESTUCK.

YOU KNOW WHO I SHIP? KARKAT♠KARKAT. THERE. I SAID IT.

STOP SNICKERING THIS IS LEGIT. THIS IS A THING. JADE IS ALL MESSING WITH MY AUTOEROTIC HOMOSEXUAL CROSS-TIME HATE OTP WITH HER DANGED DAMNED AUSPITIZING

(Which is adorable in its own right, don't get me wrong.)

BUT SERIOUSLY I ALSO SHIP OTHER THINGS

LESS HILARIOUSLY STUPID THINGS LIKE ROSE♥KANAYA AND VRISKA♠/♥TAVROS (WAIT NEVERMIND THE LESS STUPID THING THAT I SAID) AND SOLLUX♥ARADIA AND UH VRISKA♠ARADIA, ARADIA♠/♥EQUIUS, UHHHH EQUIUS♠/♥PRETTY MUCH EVERYBODY IN HIS OWN HORRIBLE WAY AND UHHHH

WELL UH THIS IS KIND OF ENTIRELY UNSUBSTANTIATED AND EXTREMELY UNSETTLING BUT DAVE♠/♥TAVROS

(My justification being that Dave secretly enjoys all of the things that he pretends to be ironic about, including him playing gay chicken with Tavros. It is admittedly one of those "one is not interested and the other is just messing around" kinds of ships, but sometimes that's the most entertaining thing.)

AND WE'RE NOT EVEN GETTING INTO PALER QUADRANTS HERE WHICH IS REALLY TOO BAD BECAUSE BELIEVE ME I HAVE MATERIAL. I HAVE SO MUCH MATERIAL BUT GEEEEZE I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M LEGITIMATELY INTERESTED IN ALL THE SHIPS THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN


SHOOT I JUST REALIZED THAT ALL BUT LIKE TWO OF THOSE SHIPS REALLY WILL NEVER HAPPEN DUE TO DEATH

That dealt with, let's talk briefly about something that isn't Homestuck for once, jegus. This extremely classy lady who I happened upon a while back: Jacqueline du Pré. She is just the most passionate cellist I have ever seen. Just the look on her face and the way she moves as she plays... seriously wow. I am sorry if this is weird but the way some musicians move as they play, it's just so gorgeous. I could never do that, not with my horn. Not like that. You can't exactly lean into a thing like a horn. Uhh look, just watch this and you'll get what I'm freaking out over. Maybe.

Geeze, I'm kind of a freak. OKAY JUST WATCH

Camille Saint-Saëns - Allegro appassionato in B Minor, Op.43
And then when you're done watching that, listen to this.
Edgard Elgar - Cello Concerto in E Minor, Op. 85 Adagio. Moderato
The way she plays is just amazing. Seriously, what an incredible feel for the music she has. I am in love with cello all over again, but what I adore most of all is the performing motions. Because I think that being a musician is more than just producing music. You need to experience it at the same time, and I'm kind of in love with the unrestrained way that she does so.
E.Granados (arr.Cassadó) - Goyescas, Intermezzo

What's that, you say, you want to watch from another classy dame from a few decades ago perform? Well, you can't go wrong with Maria Callas singing Habanera from Carmen. What a smile, wowee. Hers is maybe not the best rendition of the song you'll ever find, but her motions and expressions just draw you in.
Seguedill and L'amour Est Un Oiseaux Rebelle from the same opera, performed on a different night from my first recording.

Okay so apparently I can't post a song without listening to the whole dumb thing because I have no self-control or common sense, so I'm going to cut this off here and go sleep.

After I go BACK TO HOMESTUCK BECAUSE I GUESS OBSESSED WOULD BE A GOOD WORD FOR MY CURRENT FEELINGS ON THE MATTER OF IT.

APPARENTLY WE CAN ADD A NERVOUS LAUGH TO MY "QUIRK" LIST. I USED AIM FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MONTHS THE OTHER DAY AND SERIOUSLY LIKE A THIRD OF MY LINES STARTED WITH "haha, [words words words]". Hooray, I'm even more annoying than I dared to dream. This had better not be a thing that I do in real life. Surely I would know and oh god I do sometimes, don't I.


...MUSICIANS HAVING FUN

*(a "me" trait than a "you" trait so that probably won't happen) Apparently there is a size limit for cut text. who knew?
