Just heard anaconda by nicki minaj for the first time
People don’t know how hardcore that manga was before the card game.
I totally love the disclaimer.
I actually want to play this.
asexual representation is important
I just needed to get this off my chest right now.
gaining new followers
A commission I did for nakedwrathia who wanted Terezi and Aradia sharing a kiss! I never thought of this pairing but its very cute and sweet UwU
Alright, ladies and fuckboys and all else that there may be, it’s time for the post that you have all been waiting for; why I don’t like arasol/why it has been ruined for me. Do not continue to read if you really like arasol and don’t wanna see some asshole shittalking it
Let’s start with the personal reasons
Many of you might not remember, but back when I first started aradia-paradia and posted some equiara art, I was attacked by the infamous equiara anon, a mysterious dickweed who went around sending gross hate to equiara fans/artists. Well take one guess at what ship they told me to ship (hint it was arasol)
I never like to make a big deal about how much the equiara anon actually bothered me because 1. I didn’t want to give them the satisfaction and 2. I didn’t want to guilt people into not liking arasol, but truth be told, it really bothered me a lot. In fact, I get nervous whenever I get new messages in my inbox. Just thinking about what happened can make me cry on particularly bad days. And arasol just… Always reminds me of that, no matter how much I try to force it not to
Not that I blame other arasol fans for this one guy, of course. It’s just that now I can’t think about arasol without being reminded of really bad memories
That’s what sort of started my dislike; here’s what continued the downward spiral
I go to ao3 to look for some aradia fan fiction. I’m not usually a fanfic reader, but hey, I was in an aradia mood. Now I look up aradia fics; not ARASOL fics, not ARADIA ROMANCE fics, just aradia fics
Not only were most of these fics arasol, but thEY DIDN’T EVEN HAVE ARADIA IN THEM. Nope they were all about sollux moping over aradia’s death because, you know, only sollux cared about aradia. Or was sad about her death. And you thought strider manpain was bad
Aradia was just resorted to “dead gf” and I hated it because aradia is way more than that
Well, that was strike two, in my opinion. Now onto strike three
So we’ve gone over how arasol not only triggers me in a way, but it also treats one of its members insultingly. What else could possibly go wrong?
Sometimes, usually during my livestreams, people will ask what my notps are. Sometimes, I’ll bring up arasol. Every time I have ever EVER brought it up, there’s always at least ONE PERSON who’s like “oh arasol I love arasol”
Once I wasn’t even talking about arasol, i just mentioned that I shipped solfef (since its like, one of the healthiest cANON homestuck couples in the entire comic but I digress) and someone had to say “i love arasol…solfef is just…bad…”
People started to get mad at me for not shipping it, telling me that I SHOULD ship it and suddenly I doubted myself as an aradia fan because I didn’t ship this one fucking ship
And that’s when I started to get mad
More specifically, I started to get mad at how everyone just assumed that it was canon (and also assumed that every aradia fan shipped it)
Like, for one thing, there is nothing in canon that literally proves that they were ever together or wanted to be together at any point. With the logic that some arasol shippers use to claim that its canon, then maybe arajade is canon since aradia thought that jade looked spiffy. Or perhaps teradia is actually canon, since Terezi called aradia adorable once?
Also, the fact that people ship these two so hard because they’re a boy and a girl who are friends makes me…..really uncomfortable. I don’t like the indication that a boy and a girl can’t be friends without something else going on between them. It just…eh
So uh. Yeah. That’s why I don’t like arasol. I’m sorry for clogging ur dashes up with shittiness and I hope that my arasol shipping followers will forgive me
yeah but if you look at nepetas shipping wall, she seems to circle what becomes “canon”
if anything this is even more proof that aradia and sollux were never canonically together
So ya know how Sollux’s two canon red crushes are Aradia and Feferi?
Lemme point out that Aradia has a strong connection with Death and Feferi has a strong connection with life.
Hows that for duality?
not to mention Aradia is at the very bottom of the hemospectrum while Feferi is at the very top
except sollux never had any canon feelings for aradia?? i mean this is adorable but still
