my friend told me dave is his least favorite homestuck kid yesterday and i was straight up so scandalized i started crying and couldnt continue playing on his xbox omfg
i really like to think of dave starting out as idealizing john as like a normal well-adjusted kid that doesnt care about what other people think about him and has no problems with being an Individual even tho his hobbies are so cheesy bad dave just likes how genuine he is about liking the shit he likes
and then dave also likes johns individuality because hes trying to sort out his own individuality bc hes been emulating bro for like everything but is entering his teenage yrs and wants to figure out what defines him (instead of letting strider stuff define him)
and like dave is kind of a pushover tbh which he plays off as being chill n laid back but he just doesnt have his own hard opinions or beliefs EXCEPT FOR WHEN ITS WILDLY INCONVENIENT HES ONLY STUBBORN WHEN ITS STUPID so he admires that in john but unfortunately hangin out w john means hes the victim of that trait in john which bothers him sometimes. sometimes john uses his unabashed assertiveness to help out dave but other times he inadvertently steps on dave
another component of their relationship is that dave (unfairly?) builds up this image of john for himself and falls in love with that idea and once they start dating he finds that the real john doesnt align with his idea of john
theres a power imbalance and dave puts john on a pedestal (hero worship) but as they grow up he starts to take john down and views him more as an equal rather than an ideal and whats involved in the actual transition confuses john but they find that they work really well as a team when john helps daves voice be more heard and learns to step back more
and dave uses john to try and figure out his own individuality but he does it by relying on johns individuality and unfortunately thats not how individuality works omfg (i do like the idea that dave cherishes the shades both as a gift from john and as his first step away from mindlessly emulating bro all the time) (sidenote: THE UNIVERSE CRACKED??? its cool my shades are fine nothing important is broken)
like john helps him wean off mindlessly copying bro and bros opinion on everything by butting heads w the opinions dave regurgitates from bro but then dave starts regurgitating johns opinions and johns like thats not what we were going for here really lets try this again
i dont know how to end this post just imagine john and dave making out

hey so ill be at katsucon this weekend!! all three days im actually arriving sometime tomorrow afternoon
if you see me feel free to chat me up 8) i look like this:
( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ
first off we want to thank everyone who applied for their interest and the effort they put into their applications because it was really fun for us to read everything and basically fall in love w/ dirk and jane and get excited to rp with a dirk and a jane, and we were really surprised by how many people ended up applying (because when we asked around before dirk and jane seemed too inaccessible for most people!!)
the stuff that was sent in was really, really good - shout-out to sl0wbros, mskatsuragi, tifanilly, dirkar, and amazinglyheroic in particular, if anyone wants to start an rp please look to these people because they are cool and itd really be a shame if they didnt rp at all - so it was hard to choose, honestly wed enjoy rping with any of you so if you do end up making accounts hit us up!!
but i guess without further ado here are our new fullnamestuck members:
right now we have thirteen dirks and six janes, with four dirks who wouldnt mind being hal!
the relationship between the alpha kids and the beta kids would be that the beta kids guardians are gone, so through some glitchy mechanisms of the game our kids played (they cheated to win), alpha kids are being taken from the alpha verse and deposited in the beta verse to “fill” the slots the beta guardians have left! however this doesnt mean that the alpha kids will have to be parental towards the beta kids at all. in general anything that happened in homestuck canon is canon for our timelines game up until the showdown with lord english
hi (again)! we at this moment have a lot of dirk applicants, so we are going to ask for a SHORT RP SAMPLE (around 150 words, 100 minimum!) about your dirk doing something IN CHARACTER in the SECOND OR THIRD PERSON. please submit your sample to DAVIDSTRIDER as per usual along with any inquiries. the deadline for rp samples will be 1/24/13 (midnight, EST).
applications at this time ARE NOT CLOSED, the deadline will be the end of tomorrow, 1/22/14, (EST time). a quick note for jane applicants — we will probably be launching directly into an in character chat as there are very few of you comparatively! thank you and good luck
hi guys! we are RECRUITING in order to fill out our missing alpha timeline spots. the current open spots are DIRK (derrickstrider) and JANE (janinecrocker), we ALREADY HAVE THE URLS.
in general, fullnamestuck is a pretty chill timeline, we’re a group of friends who all have other real life commitments that take up a lot of time (school, college, work) so being online 24/7 or even every day IS NOT a requirement! we do want to see you though
that being said, a general list of criteria
- be able to get along fairly decently with existing members
- write basic level prose, we have some experienced writers so we can always help edit! most of our interactions are done ic anyway
- have a great understanding of the character and generally be able to roleplay
- experience is NOT REQUIRED
please send an ask with your NAME, PREFERRED PRONOUNS, and CHARACTER to DAVIDSTRIDER’S ASKBOX, NOT ON ANON. level of experience is OPTIONAL but helpful. any questions can also be directed there.
the application process will be either a SAMPLE RP or an IN-CHARACTER CHAT depending on interest level and will be decided later! thank you, i hope you have a great day.
hey everyone!! fullnamestuck/afterstuck has been a beta kids-only timeline for ages now, for so long that i would go as far to say that we are known for being a beta kids timeline
but i am really happy to announce that as the result of quite a bit of planning and a lot of silly fun this timeline now officially has ALPHA KIDS!! aka the four beta kids now have friends/family and so many good times are now in store
just in case not everyone knows, the beta kids are:
AND introducing. the new friends…………
you guys have always been so good to us and we are all really grateful for your support! and on that note, itd be really cool if you guys checked em out and followed them B)
thanks for reading!!!
