"Trolls are a very angry and violent race. Some are more hot-tempered and dangerous than others, to the extent that if left to their own devices, they would present a serious threat to society, or even to themselves. Such trolls will have an instinctive pale attraction to a more even-tempered troll, who may become their MOIRAIL. The moirail is obliged to pacify the other, to function as the better half. The two partners in a strong pale relationship will serve to balance and complement each other's emotional profiles, and thus allow their other relationships to be more successful."
when am i going to stop drawing homestuck
when am i going to draw backgrounds
when am i going to stop using so much orange aghfdsgasfd
lol i don't care let's draw a new ship anyway
I kinda really ship these guys as palemates now, haha. .-. Like, reimagining the story with them as moirails instead. Vriska would be constantly trying to make him stronger, and Tavros would try to make her gentler. It would turn into the most tragic thing ahhh. Like they're kind of friends, only they also suck at being moirails. Tav being paralyzed would be an example of that, I guess. It's all he can do to keep her from killing trolls, and he doesn't actually succeed most of the time. Near the end, he'll try to kill her, not really thinking he'd win or lose. It would just be another one of their brawls, although he hoped it would have more permanent results. Except Vriska either didn't catch the drift or couldn't help herself or something, and. Well. In the end, maybe he did stop her from killing, because it was his death that made her think. Maybe killing isn't such a good idea.
But then, it was too late for that, wasn't it.
But all of that aside, I wanted to draw something with palemates and summer and freckles and robotic limbs and bruises and band-aids and bloody noses and this-moirail-thing-isn't-working-but-I-wish-you-would-change faces. In the original sketch it also looks like Tavros is harboring potentially red feelings and Vriska is harboring potentially black feelings. Um.
