People bein all “lord English is jake English” and turning this abuse victim into this character that is classically a misogynist and abuser is just a new way to victim blame jake tbqh

That would be a new low for the fando-no actually that sounds pretty standard.

I keep seeing people quote Arthur Chu about gamergate and I like to remind everyone that’s he is also a misogynistic and anti-black piece of trash.

Andrew Hussie has Apologized + Given Credit!

whethervane:

For the TL;DR version, go here.

Hey guys!
you may have seen some posts from me floating around Tumblr today, about how Andrew Hussie heavily referenced an old piece of art that I made with a friend, rukafais, for the latest update of Homestuck. The art in question is this, posted on DA in December 2010:

and the update art in question was this, posted October 18th 2014:

most of the posts going around either point out the inspiration, or are about my subsequent displeasure at the event. (I think there are more posts floating around than the ones I’ve linked, but those are ones that I feel are important!) the biggest beef that Ruka and I had about the event was that Hussie did not consult us at all, nor ask permission to involve our old work in the comic. I also took a bit of offense at the fact that this art was involved directly with Caliborn, a character who is often used to mock “shitty art” and poor design. Considering that the original drawing was made while I was a young teen, I feel like that’s a pretty big offense.

well, after a lot of hemming and hawing (and a horrible deluge of notes for me both on Tumblr and DA), Andrew has issued credit in the News section of MSPA:

he also explains his reasoning for this in this section, which I appreciated. I didn’t know where he was coming from before, so I’m glad I do now!

In addition, he also apologized to me (and partially to Ruka) on Twitter:

I was very glad to see this! I know that Hussie has been weird about this sort of thing in the past, but I’m glad that we were able to get a reaction from him by reaching out and raising awareness.

Thanks to everyone who spread awareness! please reblog this post to let people know that things have basically been resolved. and, sorry in advance for stretching folks’ dashes… hopefully this’ll be the last super serious post I have to make about this!

MSPA - AU - English by NakkiStiltz
I just want you all to know that Caliborn’s wonderful human-sona was inspired, pretty much piece-for-piece, by this fanart I made nearly four fucking years ago.
This was a drawing that I collaborated on with my friend rukafais; she did the sketch and I did the colors and lineart. it was right after the Bec Noir updates, when everyone was theorizing that Bec Noir was Lord English. Ruka and I had a thing called the Steampunk AU which we ran in the Fora, featuring its own goofy humanoid interpretation of Lord English - and so when the Bec Noir theorizing broke we absolutely HAD to draw something. and so draw something, we did.
and now it’s all come back to us, with the latest Homestuck update.
gog. fucking. DAMN.

i wanna say owned but youve now become canon

For all the people who say the new upd8 is foreshadowing Jake becoming Lord English, you need to google “Caliborn troll”.

Specifically, Caliborn troll art before the fandom discovered that Calliope and Caliborns were cherubs and not trolls.

Can someone please just summarize what Caliborn said?

A year of Homestuck withdrawal hasn’t made the bile that spews from his mouth any more palatable.

Caliborn’s new art is just as painful to look at as I thought it would be.

I keep trying to look at it, but all I get is horrible flashbacks of my middle school years in anime club.
