"We were learning about blood last year and we read about what hemoglobin is and how it helps carry oxygen, so I was off to the side laughin a little and my teacher asks me what i'm laughing about. I say, "Oh, I was just reading this superhero thing... and one of the heroes' name is Hemogoblin.. and he has a shtick with blood..(etc)", and she asks me, "What story?" and I just "... it's called real men wear tights" // And I have never heard so many kids consecutively giggle in one classroom before"

Asked by meltedplasticcandy

That is a freaking awesome story! Did you mention that his partner controls the wind? Because that is the lame pun that resides at the very heart of RMWT. Hemogoblin supporting Heir. Get it? JUST LIKE BLOOD AND OXYGEN ah I kill myself.

3am on a calm night, aka “when will my husbad return from war” aka that looked better in my head aka commission for Kel

AMAAAAAAA, WE LOVE IT. Look at this poor, tired baby drinking his coffee. Being a superhero is hard. As always, I love the colouring and his expression. So perfect~!
Ama is doing commissions, so I was like, heck yes I will commission this wonderful artist, because yes. Very yes. You might remember her from such RMWT fanarts as this, this, and this (and many more). Highly recommend~!

Rebel Heart
RealName: D.J. (Danaji Storgy)
Age: 16
Blood Color: Cottoncandy Blue/Mutant
Location: Mexico New Mexico City
Powers:D.J. legs are almost like springs, she can jump high and with her speed she can easily jump from building to building. She also has quick reflexes along with the instinct to kill, she could easily be the worlds most successful assassin or drug lord, if her father had it his way.
Story:After her lusus was killed in the crossfire of a gang shooting, D.j. was taken in by one of Mexico’s most powerful drug lords, Dscord Storgy. He loved her like his own, but for the past 13 years had been preparing her to take over in his place. He emuined her to any drug or poison, trained her to fight, and taught her to kill.
Despite what she had been taught, she couldn’t help but see what her father was doing was wrong, and that the world her was preparing her for was corrupt. She loved him, but on her 12th birthday, she got her father arrested and put away for 20yrs.
After he was put away, she took over her fathers business and started to change things rapidly, and for the better. She got rid of the drug houses and brothels her father had created, but it still wasn’t enough.
With her resources and training, she haunts the night like a vengeful ghost, taking on the name Rebel Heart, D.j. takes it on herself to bring down the untouchable evil in Mexico, and righting they’re wrongs, and putting the badguys back in they’re cages.

I found out about Real Men Wear Tights awhile ago, and I wanted to draw my fan troll as a super hero. http://www.realmenweartights.com/

She looks good! I think you did a great job with her costume. We really enjoy seeing what people come up with in our universe, and that’s an interesting backstory. Well done!

"what would you do if you somehow discovered heirs secret identity without him knowing?"

If he some how managed to find out my identity I would want him to tell me. If he can find out, then so can my enemies, so it would be in our collective best interests to inform each other.

((OOC: hey sorry about the very long time between posts! School was really hectic and then my computer died so i was unable to update until now. thanks for being so patient!))

Ask-RMWT-Karkat-and-Hemo is back! We encourage you to go ask them some stuff!

You do realize we are in no way going to be stopping that, right?

SpitfireReal Name: Dirk StriderAge: 21Location: Houston, TexasPowers: Dirk is a full-time hero whose primary ability is his mastery of flash-stepping, a skill which allows him to move in shockingly fast bursts and use several speed-based techniques such as double jumping and wall-running.
He favours blunted swords—generally a daishō set—for close contact combat, and shuriken or kunai for long-distance attacks. With expert swordsmanship combined with flash-stepping, many of Dirk’s opponents are downed before they can draw their own weapons.
Beyond exceptional combat abilities, Dirk is a genius who excels in robotics, engineering, and AI research.


My concept of what Dirk might look like if he were to appear in the Real Men Wear Tights universe. Dirk is some sort of Tron/freerunner/ninja in my mind, apparently. One Strider down, one to go!

Re-reblogging because Striders should have the most notes and because this is one of my favorite designs yet.

I absolutely love this one. He is a) gorgeous, and b) awesome as shit. I also really like the fact that he is older than the others. And he is just oozing confidence. Natural leader if I ever saw one. Awesome work, Kel!

Okay so this is the first time I’ve put any art up on tumblr - and probably the last, since I never really post anything - but I had to draw some fanart for the lovely people who’ve created Real Men Wear Tights! It’s only half of him because legs are hard, but at least i got the rest of him out? xD
((ps: sorry it’s sucky, my scanner broke. :c ))

This is really lovely! I am very impressed with your shading, even more so considering you used traditional media. I also really like that expression on his face combined with his wind manipulation; he looks like he’s about to eff someone up. Thank you so much for the fanart!

"I have 2 questions. For people in their world, is shipping more common among trolls due to influence from Quadrants, or is fairly even due to the Troll influence on humans? Secondly question, do the use of terms like Boys Love, Shoujo-Ai, Yaoi, Yuri, and so forth exist like in our world, or not due to the fact that sexual orientation was never an issue? I could understand if they do for Genre sake, but I was just curious as to how you guys would handle it in the world."

Asked by mysticvriska

By shipping, do you mean like what Nepeta does? Because that most definitely exists. As long as there are celebrities/fictional works, there will be people with fantasies, regardless of species. It’s the same deal with Karkat reading romance novels; what are romance novels if not shipping fictional characters? It’s not so regular to ship one’s close acquaintances together like Nepeta does, though.

And yes, terms like that still exist for classification purposes. Just because sexual orientation has never really been that big of a deal in the modern age doesn’t mean that individuals don’t have individual tastes. So if someone wants to see two dicks rubbing together, having specific terms relating to sex-specific pairings is extremely useful.
