Okay kids, it’s time we took a look at this image of the Signless and his apostles.
Now how about we just have a quick run-through of the symbolism used in this page.
All the Ancestors are relatively featureless - a trait typical of the albino lusii, faceless guardians and semi-tangible First Guardians throughout Homestuck. But on each of them, there’s a main element which stands out for symbolic reasons.
The Dolorosa’s eyes are visible in a bright yellow because she’s a Rainbow Drinker - glowing yellow eyes are an important trace of said Drinkers.
The Psiioniic’s eyes are, of course, visible in their red and blue tones because this eye mutation is a prominent part of all the Captors. It’s also possible he’s wearing a lens or visor of some sort, which would be coloured due to the fact that it’s part of his clothing.
But then there’s the last two.
The Disciple is the only one without eyes here. The Signless, despite having nothing important about his eyes in particular, does have his eyes drawn on, in bright candy red.
The only real reason why the Disciple’s eyes would not be shown would be that her hair is obscuring them. But guess what? The Disciple’s hair is explicitly drawn here. The Disciple’s the only one with drawn hair in this image, and it’s specifically shown to not be obscuring her eyes.
So why would the Signless’ eyes be shown, especially in that colour, when they’re supposedly just the same as Disciple’s (only red), whose aren’t shown?
Well what other character do we know with prominent, bright red eyes?
(That’s Terezi, by the way)
And for what reason were her eyes red?
They were burned, which led to her being blind.
Now, we know that Kankri, who is genetically the exact same person as the Signless, was a Seer. Terezi was also a Seer - and as Karkat and Latula were both Knights, we can assume there was some sort of fateswap going on between the Pyropes and the Vantases.
So what if the Signless was blind?
Additionally, the Signless was a prophet.
If he was blind, that would make him a blind prophet.
So, long story short - what if the ‘Blind Prophets’ that Terezi holds in such high regards are actually a corruption of a singular Blind Prophet - and that Blind Prophet happened to be the Signless?
We know that Redglare was a follower of the Signless cult, at least.
it feels like nobody is scared of losing me.
MMM GR4P3S! >:]
Someone requested eriter/ teridan as a rare pair, and to honestly say, it’s kind of adorable. :) I could get behind this pair haha
THAT SHOULD BE MY FACED GETTING LICKED DAMMIT
steve, bucky and sam going out for early-morning jogs. every time steve and bucky pass sam, they yell “ON YOUR LEFT” and “ON YOUR RIGHT” respectively. sam gets increasingly frustrated. but after a while, steve and bucky realise they haven’t passed sam again, and he’s nowhere to be seen. and they start to get worried, fearing the worst, until suddenly they hear a shout “ON YOUR ABOVE, ASSHOLES” as sam swoops overhead, leaving them behind
[suspicious snape voice] “you’re saying your friend named remus lupin definitely isn’t a werewolf”
[shocked, disappointed james potter voice] “remus lupin, a werewolf?? is it because he’s named after a guy raised by a wolf? is it because his surname literally means wolf? well. you’re wrong. his middle name is john, there’s no way he could be a werewolf.”
Steve and Bucky’s sleep is the most peaceful when they are resting together, protecting each other from the nightmares.
Well, that took me a lot longer than I thought it would to paint. Glad I’ve finally finished it though!
Post reblogged from "...I mostly stayed alive through the whole thing" with 50,008 notes
Peggy Carter helped found SHIELD after Steve “died”.
It was founded at the camp that Steve trained at.
On marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, Agent Ward says “Someone really wanted our initials to spell SHIELD”
Peggy created and named the entire spy organization after STEVE’S SHIELD.
OH MY FREAKING GOD.
it gets better.
Peggy Carter was motivated to further acts of heroism by the death of her love interest.
In the Peggy Carter story, Steve Rodgers got Fridged.
Something horrible is happening.
Gamzee, this is your fault.
Heeey, friends and people I don’t know. I had this idea that, given how it’s Easter Sunday today, it might be interesting to invite questions specifically about religion and Christianity and so on from you guys. If you’re interested at all, my ask box is open, anonymous is on, and if you want me to reply privately then let me know, and I will do so. Obvious disclaimer that anything I’ve got to say on these matter will be based on and influenced by my own experiences as a middle class white Protestant living in south England, which will most likely differ and differ hugely from yours. Also, no question is too trivial, some may be too deep for me because I’m not a theologian, but I’ll do my best to answer everything and if I can’t do it then I’ll be sure to let you know.
So, that said, if you’re interested drop me a line!
