Dated language on trans issues, not that heavy but just in case 

Things i did today instead of writing the prose i promised i would; legitimate pepe silvia chart on the Blue Ladies Reading, which is what happens when you ask me to explain how one can make a singular motif thrown in for a gag actually matter a lot to a character's id. Jake caters to me bc i accumulate useless comic trivia and find shapeshifter figures fascinating so the fact hes rolling all over in them is Incredibly Overindulgent

Technically this is ALSO vrisrezi meta because i think jake liking both spidergirl and mystique are no-prize paradox space references to her. Taste pointers. This same theme is repeated across avatar being mindmelding body ascencion story, hulk/ghost rider/the mummy all being transformative misunderstood protagonists, etc

@holytomater people really underestimate print comic's influence on homestuck imo

@holytomater nobody who isn't a certified fucking marvel zombie would know about mayday parker

@alephnull marvel is my ex lover that makes me smoke a cigarette to reminisce but tbh youre right i think you can get so much enjoyment out of these characters when you understand the pop culture backing... Like for instance hulk being the definition of the sandbag monster hero that apparently has ENORMOUS amounts of power but his status quo is getting shit on b/c no one can understand him and scavenging trash for resources solidifies him as such a jake interest

@holytomater u continue to have absolutely the biggest brained analysis god damn

@rosie every person that accepts the insanity im weaving is the true champ, thank you!!
