@#$% YEAH, SPIDER-WIFE’S FIRST OFFICIAL GIVEAWAY!
Enter to win your very own copy of Spider-Man/Mary Jane: You Just Hit the Jackpot! This trade collects a number of different MJ-centric stories from over the decades, including many of my favorites. There’s work by Stan Lee, Gerry Conway, both the Romitas, Tom DeFalco, Louise Simonson, Alex Saviuk … the list goes on. The book is equally enjoyable whether you’re an old fan who’d like a neat compilation of highlights or a new fan who needs an introductory primer to MJ-lore.

When you talk to her, she says “I’ve got a question for you” :D :D :D <3
(color tweaked a bit because Gotham is so goddamn grimdark)
randomly dropping in to post this
i needed more human kanaya for rp purposes so i drew one
i’m shit with backgrounds could you tell
ok so while everyone’s been theorizing about UU being sufferer it just occurred to me that
This does make a fair bit of sense! And, I mean… it’s not like growing up in Scratch’s tender care would have encouraged her to use her trollgiven sign or whatever, even if she does apparently know what it is, given her collar thing.
THE SMILIES WERE WHAT GAVE IT AWAY
I’m kinda hoping UU is a new character (has Huss said otherwise?) but this is good too.
oh i’ve been figuring on the caduceus being the symbol for the hero of life and it being the condesce given she’s supposed to be both the batterwitch and le’s agent in the kid’s universe, but i suppose this works too :o
I agreed with you until I got to the heteronormativity part. That’s you misconstruing things to make a problem that isn’t there. Without doubt, making a joke out of sexuality apart from “the norm” is certainly as bad as jokes about alcoholism…
I know what heteronormativity means (although I bothered to read the tags and get a better understanding). I’m just trying to see how heteronormativity was there at all and assumed OP thought it was being a joke somehow. I mean, the trolls are pretty much a big step away from heteronormativity (aren’t they?) in Homestuck. Perhaps OP seems them as a joke now? I don’t really know.
There is also just the fact that I’m pretty damn wrong here.
Yeah, there is definitely that fact.
The trolls, much as I love them, are still largely auxiliary to the story, and while they might be considered some kind of step, it’d hardly be a big one. A tiptoe, really. They create a potential for a break in heteronormativity, but in practice it’s been incredibly lacking! I mean, when you look at the large number of romantic advances, they’ve heavily favored m/f pairings, m/m being basically painted as a joke, f/f being generally unrequited, Hussie making incredibly gross meta on the subject.
And then you get the new kids tossed into the mix, each one introducing us in the boldest terms possible how incredibly het they are? Man, Homestuck is hella heteronormative. It’s given little more than tiny scraps to indicate otherwise.
I agreed with you until I got to the heteronormativity part. That’s you misconstruing things to make a problem that isn’t there. Without doubt, making a joke out of sexuality apart from “the norm” is certainly as bad as jokes about alcoholism and abuse, but at least alcoholism and abuse are present in the story to hate.
tbh i can’t help wondering if maybe you don’t really understand what the word “heteronormativity” means? because nothing in the context of how you’re using it in your reblog here seems to indicate that you do
reports of my return are somewhat exaggerated. i’m still really bad at managing multiple social networking platforms, but i do try to poke my head in on occasion? o:
So you’re not only a sexuality-erasing cockbat, you’re a shallow sexuality-erasing cockbat. Good to know.
(At least you’re better than a Certain Writer who thinks the appropriate way to facilitate Kanaya/Eridan is to have her raped by nuns until she hates women.)
Please be joking about that. There can’t possibly be anyone THAT terrible.
Oh god I’m setting myself up for an enormous disappointment aren’t I?
None other than the writer of Promstuck herself, my friend.
(Well, she and a collaborator. I hold them both equally culpable.)
I guess we now see where flippant attitudes toward canon sexualities gets you.
when did this happen
and in what context
that doesn’t sound like something the Promstuck girls would do
It’s definitely a thing that happened. It’s in the backstory notes to Hemostuck, wherein Kanaya and Eridan are matesprits.
I’m unimpressed that you didn’t see it coming, tbh.
And for the record it’s Roachpatrol that’s involved in this trainwreck, not Shelby. Shelby is currently toddling along drawing the same repetitive ten-minute-scribble slash fanart as usual, as far as I’m aware.
Jesus fucking christ.
My friend in Georgia is complaining about the cold. I’m judging the shit out of him.
yeah and then i told you how cold it is and it turns out it’s actually colder here than where you are miss great lakes so yeah
