My haruto is gonna doki the fuck right outie my chest once we scope this righteous babemaiden.
Still hoping for “Dhanus”, personally. ;U
I would color this but alas free time is not a thing that actually exists for the next four weeks…… so someone else should ;;;;;;)))))
my ships are metal as fuck hail satan
I’m drawing this picture of Equius atm and he’s awkwardly holding up his hand a bit with Aradia next to him, christ it either looks like he is 1) some teenage boy on the black metal tag with hands contorted in the atypical KVLT AS FVCK pose, 2) flicking her off or 3) trying to eat her hair.
Bachelor Button (Centaurea cyanus)
Cornflowers are such an Equius flower. I mean Centaurea…. come on
And they loose their color and get all ghosty when they floatin in yo tea…doke
OH NO BAD HEADCANON
The Door’s “Build Me A Woman”- Equius’s song, oh god.
BRAND NEW SHINY HEADCANON: the Land of Caves and Silence looks like the inside of an auto-darkening welding mask.
Which I can’t really describe well unless you’ve welded with one on, but I think it looks like a green-blue electric storm….frozen in time.
LoCaS is my mind has no light source aside from perhaps a moon that the planet floats in some proximity to? But once you enter any of the cave tunnels, the only light comes from the water that has crazy high amounts of bioluminescence floating by, or inexplicable electric pulses surging through, or both.
The water itself is absolutely pure- a complex system of freshwater springs and whirlpools all connected to an abundant aquifer LoCaS’s cave system barely scrapes, even at the deepest depths. Within these caves are various metal deposits that can be captchalogued and alchemized (what would be more useful to Equius???), stalactites and other dripstones that often bar the way through the tunnels.
Much of LoCas’s challenge, despite “posing no challenge” for Equius at all, is adventuring through the underground systems, often reaching dead ends with no rewards, and paying mind to not use brute strength to forcibly navigate the caves: this risks cave-ins and great personal injury. I imagine that Equius got fed up very early on with the ~mysterious~ nature of his planet’s terrain, forgoing any treasure hunts or puzzle challenge elements in order to leave LoCaS and get to Aradia as quick as possible.
I also believe that the further one travels into the underground systems, the more alone you are with you and your thoughts- private introspection literally echoing off the cave’s interior as the aquifer draws near. The pressure to stay calm and collected while navigating the caves that promise some ambiguous arcane knowledge…mixed with the land’s dreary topography….the panic that comes with treading water under an air pocket as you fight madly to find your way through the darkness, suffocation imminent, situations where strength does’t help you.
That sense depriving mechanism of the auto-darkening mask, wherein perception of space dissolves into the peripheral void, like a horse with blinders on. You rely solely on muscle memory. The only thing you can see is the green glow of the torch illuminating the aluminum as it chromes and quakes and cools.
SO YEAH, LoCaS SOUNDS FUN
Drawing deadquius on the back of Famous Amos menus again hmmm
Your name is Equius Zahhak, and you are as transparent as can be.
Long-haired stoic alien boys who build robots and trap themselves in their own hypocrisy and have underappreciated hearts of gold, 2k12
I tried to draw a young darkleer design other day but he just ended up looking like mickey mouse haha what
Things I think about on a regular basis
- How Equius is my favorite homestuck character
- How Equius will always be my favorite homestuck character
- How many hierloom tomato plants I can possibly fit into my backyard at a time
So I had some figure drawing homework and WHOOPS it turned into Darkleer.
