"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.

VRISKA IN A PONYTAILLLLL <3
Is drawing her in a ponytail a thing? I see a lot of artists doing it and I don't blame them because she's so pretty and fabulous in a ponytail. c: And you tinted her hair blue, which is another thing I love very much!

Also, a lot of people seem to ship them pale and I am all aboard with that. XD

I guess it might be a thing? I've seen a lot of artists do it, too. I dunno, it would be smarter to keep it up while you're roughhousing, plus it looks good with her outfit. XD But artists also seem to tint trolls according to their blood color, which I like, too. <3

Fashionable AND functional. GURL, YOU WORK IT.
Yes! There was another artist who tinted her hair + put it up in a ponytail and I loovvveeddd it. <3 Though I don't see it used too often for Terezi or Karkat or Sollux. I suppose it would be weird for the lighter colours. Karkat with grey hair? XD

XD Well, I did it with Tavros here, too. I guess you could tint Karkat's hair/skin a reddish color? That would probably work better than grey, haha. XD

Ahh I know. ;w; It's like I had to stop drawing every once in a while just to go "TAVROS STOP BEING SO CUTE AUGH". Because he might actually be my favorite troll if I could pick favorites? But yes this ship is wonderful. <>

Yet in my mind I have this kind of cannon, not on them just as best friends, yet at the same time as brother/sister. Just I don't know why.

Deep inside, I think as Vriska as the big sista who bullies you and Tavros as the good, gentle and mom favorites child. She tries to make him stronger and vigorous just to stop him to be bully, while Tavros in the other hand tries to convice people that vriska is not that bad. At some situations, mostly passionate, both will say the same thing: "You cannot insult him/her because you don't now him/her, he/she is my brother/sister and I know who it really is deep inside"

Yeah, it made me question how the ship would work, since they don't seem to be friends at all in the comic. Then again, maybe sometimes friends =/= moirails?

Aww, that is a great way to picture them! ;w; *ships this kinda now*
