some grimdark rose
Laude novella sia cantata
A l’alto donna encoronata
Fresca vergene doncella
Priomo fior, rosa novella
Tutto’l mondo a te s’apella
Nella bonor fosti nata
Tu se’ verga, tu se’fiore
Tu se’ luna de splendore
Volunta avemo e core
Don’t let go of my hand
Repair joyfully, probing, the entire globe
if this knot of mine overflows the world
I only want to connect our fortunes
that simply met each other at the same time
I’ll protect the world from within my knot
I’m pretty much dead from exhaustion after working on this piece for two days straight, but I hope it’s satisfactory to me even after I get some rest and look at it again.
Like the Aradia and Vriska paintings, I’ve combined religious imagery and Homestuck into something… weird and kind of pretentiously cool.
Also, Kanaya is a BAMF and this painting doesn’t come close to portraying that side of her.

Ohhh stunning °3°
this is so gorgeous. oh wow.
i love this character
oh my god what is this from it looks amazing
Wow, look at me doing fanart again!
I’m gonna make this basically a homestuck fanart blog and I will be taking requests and there will probably be porn at some point!
In the end I was the mean girl
Or somebody’s in-between girl
Now it’s the Devil I love
And it’s as funny as real love
Bells and footfalls and soldiers and dolls
Brothers and lovers she and I were
Now she seems to be sand under his shoes
*Collapses from exhaustion* Holy hell, this was supposed to be a simple warm-up painting, but then it went and exploded into this huge big thing!
When in doubt, draw Vriska. And maybe some Terezi for good measure. ;)

If I were going to describe the perfect contraceptive, it would go something like this: no babies, no latex, no daily pill to remember, no hormones to interfere with mood or sex drive, no negative health effects whatsoever, and 100 percent effectiveness. The funny thing is, something like that currently exists.
The procedure called RISUG (reversible inhibition of sperm under guidance) takes about 15 minutes with a doctor, is effective after about three days, and lasts for up to 10 years. A doctor applies some local anesthetic, makes a small pinhole in the base of the scrotum, reaches in with a pair of very thin forceps, and pulls out the small white vas deferens tube. Then, the doctor injects a polymer called Vasalgel, pushes the vas deferens back inside, puts a band aid over the small hole, and the man is on his way. If this all sounds incredibly simple and inexpensive, that’s because it is. The chemicals themselves cost less than the syringe used to administer them.
With one little injection, this non-toxic jelly will sit there for 10 years without you having to do anything else to not have babies. Set it and forget it. Oh, and when you do decide you want those babies, it only takes one other injection of water and baking soda to flush out the gel, and within two to three months, you’ve got all your healthy sperm again.
The trouble is, most people don’t even know this exists. And if men only need one super-cheap shot every 10 years, that’s not something that gets big pharmaceutical companies all fired up, because they’ll make zero money on it (even if it might have the side benefit of, you know, destroying HIV).
If this sounds awesome for you or your loved one, get the word out. Share this article.

A hero for the ages! Uh, yeah. A silly sketch that went berserk.
I would read this comic in a second.
homestuck is going to be the death of me with all its swirlies
