Vriska, can you not ask this shit right before bed?
I really couldn’t find a better kismesis ring than the one I used for Spades Slick, but this is the one time where I feel it’s justified to reuse a ring design. He strikes me as the guy who’s supposed to essentially personify kismesis relationships, so…
(The following headcanons don’t need to exist but suddenly do at this very moment as I type this.)
Flushed rings are given much like today’s promise rings. There is an agreement of a relationship beforehand. The rings are then donned as the official “announcement”.
Kismesis rings are given as a sort of “taunt” between partners. One will propose an official relationship by stealing something important of the other’s and leaving a ring in its place as a kind of calling card. If the other can reclaim their important item (to prove worthy of the partner’s skill level) and wishes to accept the title, they will leave another ring in the place of their reclaimed loot.
It’s common for only one moirail in the relationship to wear the ring, as it’s given to the wearer when the possibility of the relationship is proposed. Both parties can wear rings if they so choose, but only one is seen as customary. It is also seen as a compliment to the wearer, as this implies that they were the one that the other felt completed by first or most drastically.
And lastly, unlike the Moirail ring, which is only given by a partner when proposing a relationship, the Auspice ring tradition involves four parties: two in a corrupt kismesis, one concerned friend who wants something to be done but cannot effectively mediate for some reason, and one (the eventual wearer) whom the friend approaches. The ring serves as a formal request for the last person to step in and mediate where the concerned friend cannot in a situation where a verbal plea would be undignified. In short, Auspistice relationships can take place without a ring; the status ring only comes into play when an Auspice must be actively recruited by someone else. Wearing this ring also serves as a visual reminder to those involved that the third member is perfectly willing to help, but was prompted to do so in the first place by someone else. This keeps the initial request anonymous and avoids risking any already-strained friendships.
I am SO sorry I went on a huge tangent there… ^^; I’m sure it sounds kind of rough, as I just spat that out on the fly. You know how headcanons are though. They just happen sometimes!
Edit: Revamped the Auspice ring explanation. Hopefully this version’s a little more streamlined.
And the kismesis ring would be worn on the right hand middle finger,
the matesprit ring would be worn on the left hand ring finger,
the moirail ring on the right hand ring finger,
and the auspice ring would be worn on the pinky of either hand,
(( In this case, it’s not one of my very bad recolor works, you can imagine the conversation they are having, sorry, I’m too lazy ))
It’s been exactly one year since…

i feel like this whole year has just been one god damn blur and that none of these fucking happened or it happened yesterday like what the fuck man this felt like it happened two months ago not a fucking year ago what the fuuuuck
Huh! I retract my previous comment, then. Thanks for the heads-up and also isn’t that interesting…
I, too, thought the blood color could range “freely” over the emospectrum.
I swear I’m not making fun of you but, emospectrum, can there be a picture for that please, I’d draw something but I have no idea what it would look like
Karkat isn’t even ON the Emospectrum, what a PREP.
KATE DID YOU JUST DRAW THIS
YOU’RE MY HERO
Yes, I just drew that because I was amused by the concept hahaha!
Aw man it’s not displaying full size though! Here:
Does the Homestuck fandom still exist? No it doesn’t. It never existed. It was all in your head. Now you’re standing in the middle of your dinner table dressed like an alien clown for no reason and grandmother is crying. Was your fantasy worth it you sick jackass
Eridan wig styling guide! (Which is one of many ways to style an Eridan wig so please don’t get mad if you don’t like this particular way.)
I was restyling my wig after dyeing the violet weft to match my cape (it photographs in like 50 shades of blue in these photos), so it’s already cut into the shape I like.
1. Install your horns and comb your wig.
2. Flip the violet bit forward and hairspray the base wig, sleeking the hair back and up (it comes to a bit of a point in the back on mine.) Don’t break the tip off your horn in the process like I did.
3. I like having a bit of a pompadour, so separate some hair in the front and hold it forward. Hairspray it lightly and then blow dry it for a few seconds to dry the hairspray and heat set the wig in that spot.
4. Flip that hairsprayed bit back and notice how it’ll stick up now, pin it into place where you like it. Hairspray it lightly and blow dry it again for a few seconds.
5. Repeat step 3 with the violet hair. I found that doing this in sections made it more manageable and looked a bit more natural/voluminous.
6. Pin the violet hair over the black pomp.
7. Twist the hair in the opposite direction and pin it again to make the wavy thing.
8. Repeat until all the hair is up and the shape is nice and smooth. Hairspray it well and heat set it with the blow dryer for about a minute.
9. Enjoy your Eridan wig yay.
10. Take bathroom selfies.
CUTE BROTHERS BEING ADORABLE AHHHHH
Human Caliborn test! HD pics later.
