I MADE THE KARKAT FINALLY
i’ll make heir and hemo next?
probably
i get really bored at night so i do this shit

Oh no, they are both so totally adorable! Their hair is so fluffy and soft looking. I really love how you coloured John’s pretty, blue eyes. I also like that his horns totally look like Hemogoblin’s (much attractive horn shape). Super cute species swaps~! Thanks so much for the art!

"Does Sgt. ever get noticed by students for the au?"

Asked by Anonymous

Nah. That would actually be really bad. I do not really live in a place where I would consider it a good thing to be an out male as a high school teacher. Even more so when you figure that I’m part of a team writing a romance/action/smut fic…featuring high schoolers. I mean, all parties in this fic that will be engaging in sexual activities are already of legal consent age in Washington, but still. That does not exactly look good on my part (even if I’m of the opinion that teachers who sleep with their students are mentally disturbed).

I do like teasing my kids by showing them how many followers I have, however, because it never fails to weird them out to learn that their teacher has way more followers than they do.

Besides, I only have one Homestuck in all of my classes this year, to my knowledge. Only one who is open about it, in any case. (addendum: I just found out there is a gaggle of Homestucks in the GSA I co-sponsor)

"Will the mystery of John's mom be revealed/explained during the story?"

Asked by Anonymous

It will certainly be elaborated upon. We are not going to even give hints for that one, though.

"okay I'm sorry but I'ma be *that* person for a moment. ... do you guys have an estimated time as to when the next chapter will be out? I mean assuming both your schedules would stay relatively the same. (Except during December b/c I'm p sure [Sgt.? which one's the teacher again?] school's gonna be BUSY.)"

Asked by sylph-of-limebloods

Hey there! No, ETA as of yet. I’ll be updating the status bar once we make more significant progress in the writing/editing stages.

This is a good chance to general status update on current events that are sapping away some RMWT time, though!

As of right now, I’m in the middle of buying my first house with my sibling. Organizing things, packing stuff, and setting stuff up has been taking up a good chunk of my free time. I also am the type of person who stresses out (a lot) over dumb stuff, so you can bet your buns I am doing that hardcore mode whenever I’m not at the office, graphic designing.

On top of the usual critical levels of work that he does shaping young minds as an English teacher (and it is an obscene amount of work) and time that said job takes outside of work hours (again, obscene), Sgt. is also buying his first house. So. Pretty darn busy on his end.

We are way too grown up.

zzzzzzzo:

my first day of anime usa was so fun~ there are some times where i think i might have been recognized from the au, but i’m not sure. it’s more like people were looking in my general direction and said something that sort of sounded like “real men wear tights,” but i could be wrong. ah, well. it was still a blast! :D

Yesss, awesome! Thank you so much for cosplaying, zzzzzzzo! At a con too, like, goodness gracious, I can’t fathom this event. I think it’s pretty amazing that someone may have recognized you as cosplaying the AU, since we are such a blip in a corner of the Homestuck fandom.

Seriously, if I ever knew of anyone going to a con nearby to me and that person was going to cosplay RMWT, I’d whip them up a swag-bag of things.
 It would be a must.

Thank you again, zzzzzzzo~!

*casually saddens over the fact i don’t have grey paint for my skin nor do i have shit to make horns*
*pretends to be human karkat from rmwt instead*
THIS IS MY EXCUSE OKAY
I HAVE NOTHING ELSE
ANYWAY, DAD BROUGHT ME TO WALMART TO PICK OUT SOMETHING FOR MY BIRTHDAY AND THE SECOND I SAW THIS JACKET I KNEW I HAD TO GET IT
IT IS THE GREATEST THING TO BE PRESENTED TO ME SINCE SLICED BREAD
but this is how i spend my birthday
still being homestuck trash
yup.

That hoodie is pretty freaking awesome. You are absolutely correct, too. That is totally something our Karkat would wear. Not gonna lie; I’m pretty envious (and BR is planning on finding and purchasing one). And happy birthday! 8D

RMWT Wiki: The Ancestors Series’ Insufferable Brood

Reblogged from offransive

offransive:

The Insufferable Brood, also known simply as The Brood, are a group of antagonists in the Ancestors series of comics and graphic novels published by Double U comics. Consisting of The Sufferer, The Disciple, The Psionick and their matron Dolorosa, the group are constantly at odds with the Alternian Empire and the Ancestors themselves.

Ooh, a creative take on the Ancestors comic series and an enjoyable read (as always), Frank! Your direction of having the trolls more often pegged as villains being the Ancestors’ protagonists is interesting. I really like these fake-Wiki-like entries~!
