Okay, my turn for a heartwarming Homestuck story:
So on saturday of CTcon, this little girl came up to me and a couple of other homestucks are hanging out on the second floor. She was interested in our outfits and asked what they were. None of the others knew how to explain homestuck to such a young girl, but me with my love of kids couldn’t resist. I knelled down, as karkat and introduced myself as a troll from outer space. She asked if we were aliens and i said that we were as alien as she was. She giggled and called me a cat cause she couldn’t remember the full name karkat. I introduced gamzee as my silly clown friend who likes pie, sollux as a cool troll who likes computers and bees, and feferi as the troll princess. She liked feferi the most. i asked the little girl if she was a princess and she said yes. I got up, took my friend poots dressed as calliopes horns after introducing them to each other and put them on the little girl with her consent. I had the feferi dub her in as the new troll princess and she took off the horns, gave them to calliope and hugged me. She said i was her favorite cat.

I got some feedback recently that I never did landscapes, so I dug through my drafts and found a messy sketch from 2009, and then expanded the image a ton and fixed it up. The original sketch only had the top 1/4 of the image, and it was all just plain hills. This was originally inspired by a part from the book I was reading at the time (Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell), and on my repaint I redid a lot of areas and threw in inspiration from the book I’m reading now (The Silmarillion). That said, it’s not fan art, it’s more just me pulling bits of pieces of ideas that I liked from different places. :)
Gateway of the Mind
In 1983, a team of deeply pious scientists conducted a radical experiment in an undisclosed facility. The scientists had theorized that a human without access to any senses or ways to perceive stimuli would be able to perceive the presence of God. They believed that the five senses clouded our awareness of eternity, and without them, a human could actually establish contact with God by thought. An elderly man who claimed to have “nothing left to live for” was the only test subject to volunteer. To purge him of all his senses, the scientists performed a complex operation in which every sensory nerve connection to the brain was surgically severed. Although the test subject retained full muscular function, he could not see, hear, taste, smell, or feel. With no possible way to communicate with or even sense the outside world, he was alone with his thoughts.
Scientists monitored him as he spoke aloud about his state of mind in jumbled, slurred sentences that he couldn’t even hear. After four days, the man claimed to be hearing hushed, unintelligible voices in his head. Assuming it was an onset of psychosis, the scientists paid little attention to the man’s concerns.
Two days later, the man cried that he could hear his dead wife speaking with him, and even more, he could communicate back. The scientists were intrigued, but were not convinced until the subject started naming dead relatives of the scientists. He repeated personal information to the scientists that only their dead spouses and parents would have known. At this point, a sizable portion of scientists left the study.
After a week of conversing with the deceased through his thoughts, the subject became distressed, saying the voices were overwhelming. In every waking moment, his consciousness was bombarded by hundreds of voices that refused to leave him alone. He frequently threw himself against the wall, trying to elicit a pain response. He begged the scientists for sedatives, so he could escape the voices by sleeping. This tactic worked for three days, until he started having severe night terrors. The subject repeatedly said that he could see and hear the deceased in his dreams.
Only a day later, the subject began to scream and claw at his non-functional eyes, hoping to sense something in the physical world. The hysterical subject now said the voices of the dead were deafening and hostile, speaking of hell and the end of the world. At one point, he yelled “No heaven, no forgiveness” for five hours straight. He continually begged to be killed, but the scientists were convinced that he was close to establishing contact with God.
After another day, the subject could no longer form coherent sentences. Seemingly mad, he started to bite off chunks of flesh from his arm. The scientists rushed into the test chamber and restrained him to a table so he could not kill himself. After a few hours of being tied down, the subject halted his struggling and screaming. He stared blankly at the ceiling as teardrops silently streaked across his face. For two weeks, the subject had to be manually rehydrated due to the constant crying. Eventually, he turned his head and, despite his blindness, made focused eye contact with a scientist for the first time in the study. He whispered “I have spoken with God, and he has abandoned us” and his vital signs stopped. There was no apparent cause of death.
Could read this a million times over
that is the most amazing and interesting thing I have ever read
That is by far the most intriguing thing I have ever read in my life.
I read this the first time and freaked the fuck out but a part of me wants to know if its a creepypasta because I’ve never believed in any god, because the whole idea was just non-sensical to me… I guess for me, dying will be another mystery solved.
Everyone would likely ignore me and say I’m crazy or whatever(or really just don’t care), buuuut…
I can explain this, sorta’? Applying my small amounts of knowledge to this, going by my religion (Roman Catholicism).
He’s possessed, simply put. Now, I can state this for a number of reasons. First of all, the dead relatives. From what I’ve read and understand, dead relatives coming back have certain… expectations? I don’t know quite how to word that, but they have a minimum standard. Some of this minimum standard includes the fact that the relatives normally say something along the lines of ‘pray for me’. They glow a certain array of colours- dark orange to white, I believe. They are in Purgatory, allowed by God to come to Earth. They wouldn’t trade Purgatory to be alive again, because being in Purgatory means they’re on their way to Heaven, they simply have to pay for their sins, which they are actually pretty joyful about despite the awful suffering. Now, it doesn’t say quite specifics, so hey maybe he is seeing people from Purgatory- but that’s unlikely. Yes, he probably is communicating with spirits, but these ‘spirits’ would be demons or minions of the devil. Also saying, demons attack you most on your deathbed. Floods of demons come to try and take you, so that you do not make it to Heaven. Considering the fact the man did, indeed, die, this makes sense for him to be haunted by demons. Also considering these facts, it would be highly possible for him to be possessed. On a last note, the fact that he turned his sightless eyes as if he could see the scientist- that screams possession. The haunting words he says are meant to strike to our core, because that’s what the evil one wishes.
I wanted to state these things, in part because my friend was deeply affected by this. She considered that God has left us. She was in complete despair, crying and sobbing. She was touched by this, in ways she shouldn’t have should she have had the right knowledge to combat such things. I’m putting this out there for any Christian who loses hope reading this, even if they don’t believe all of this, maybe they can take what they can from this.
Sorry to spam people with this. Also, some of my information may be incomplete- I’m still learning, a lot! I’m just going by what I know.

When I opened my eyes, the moon looked back down on me and gave me my name.
((Shamelessly reblogging my first post. I knew I wanted to do something with this sketch but I never expected it to end up in a poster. So happy it did, though.))
It might be of interest to everyone who loved “Rise of the Guardians,” which was adapted from William Joyce’s beautiful and moving book series, “The Guardians of Childhood,” that in May, Blue Sky Studios and 20th Century Fox will be releasing ANOTHER film adapted from the works of Mr. Joyce.
;-; I saw the very book this movie is from YESTERDAY. It was GORGEOUS. Although a child’s book (psh who cares), it had wonderful illustrations and a good story, from what I could gather from me casually looking through it.
Now the only question is is WHY DIDNT I BUY THE BOOK. I’m sobbing in a corner now that I see they will make a movie from it. *sighs*
I’m spreading the word of this movie though, for anyone interested :3 (and don’t make the same mistake as me and just walk away from the book ; _ ; )
Thanks to all the new people who is following <3 :D
Sorry if you did it thinking this was a quality blog orz
Have a sassy good Pitch with my thanks and greetings~
This is sweet as candies and cakes!!!
