It’s time for the Homestuck Shipping Olympics!! Get excited people!!!!!!! I’m going to be keeping close tabs on it and interpreting the events like it is the freaking Hunger Games all up inside of here.
This year is going to be awesome.
I made a gif for the HSO party going on right now
This is an accurate representation of myself
WINNER OF ROUND ONE: het
WINNER OF ROUND TWO: dudes kissin
WINNER OF ROUND THREE: ladies kissin
WINNER OF ROUND FOUR: humans transformed into trolls having weird quadrant tangos largely involving kissin but also apparently involving hate issues and also rose hate makes out with the troll version of her mom
WINNER OF THE OVERALL COMPETITION: a dude and a lady being bffs with zero bedroom action involved at any stage, with anyone
REQUIRED ACTIONS TO PARTICIPATE IN PRETTY MUCH EVERY BONUS ROUND BUT THE FIRST ONE: unbelievable amounts of multishipping
HOMESTUCK SHIPPING OLYMPICS: PROMOTING HARMONY AND CONFUSING THE FUCK OUT OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN IN OTHER FANDOMS BEFORE
why I get mad when people say homestuck is dominated by slash because
I’ve been in slash-dominated fandoms
Homestuck is actually one of the first fandoms I’ve been in that ISN’T dominated by slash or ONE PAIRING ONLY OTP, SHIP SOMETHING ELSE? TOO BAD GET OUT
There’s a delightful mix of all genders, love and hate, sexual and nonsexual, and vanilla with holy-fuck-what-is-happening.
This is just one of the reasons why I love both the shipping olympics and the fandom on a whole and, despite not contributing as much as I wanted to towards it, I had a lot of fun taking part and meeting new people!
