Mega64 loves all of you, especially Robogoat.
I would do that in a heartbeat if it wasn't completely ridiculous and if I had the money.
It's not a question of what you think, but what you do.
Today I went to a big and cool anime convention. I found a group of Homestuck fans, breaking my previous statement of thinking they're barely inexistant here.
Terezi, Aradia, Sollux, Feferi, Gamzee, and later I got into a giant Q-Tip/Cotton Swab/Cotton Bud/Cotonete/Whatever fight with EQUIUS.
My life is now complete.
Spotted at Anime Friends, a brazilian anime convention:

Amazing that other brazilians know homestuck, I really didn't expect finding these guys here (i was in a hurry and unfortunately didn't talk to them, sorry guys!)

I'm cosplaying, for the first time, without a group at a con later this month. I'm incredibly nervous about it. I really hope I find a lot of fans, it's a big con and I'd love to meet some new people.
Yes, I went to Anime Friends today(09/07). And that is the Equius I cotton-fought. There was no John, Karkat or Nepeta, though.
If you went day 9, I was the dude with the top hat and the suit. And the occasional skull mask.
I was at my friend's house with some friends of hers I had never met before (I know her from boarding school, shit like that happens a lot). We were talking about favorite numbers when I said 413. One of the other girls just said "Homestuck?!" and I told her yes. We proceeded to squee like little fangirls and discussed the latest update together.
I've never spied a fan outside a convention or bunny meet-up either! Not that I leave the house much these days, having turned into a studying hermit crab and all.
Once, out to coffee with Andrew a few years back, he had on a green slime shirt. The cashier remarked on what a cool shirt it was. Andrew just humbly directed him to the topatoco website.
PS @quietus, your name is one of my favorite legal words!
That equius looks suspiciously like Nic Cage.
I guess this is the place to post this:
So for the summer I have a job working in one of my university's chemistry labs. Yesterday, while looking something up on the lab computer, I discovered MSPA in the browsing history. Turns out the other person working in my lab is a huge Homestuck fan and was checking for updates. For the rest of the day we talked about the recent updates and had some of the homestuck albums playing as background music while we worked. My job just got a lot more awesome.
I may have spotted some fans while waiting in line for Harry Potter. I was talking about some of the recent updates to a friend of mine who I got interested in Homestuck, and someone behind me kept saying she hated how something was being ruined for her and then she plugged her ears and started "lala"ing. I was hoping it was a fan, but was too shy to ask.
I did see, however, not a fan, but a spitting image of Dave. I mean right down to the shades. He wasn't wearing the right shirt, though. But man, it was so perfect! I was working at a farmers market stall and he came up and I convinced him to buy some blackcurrant strawberry jam, all the while trying to to grin and ask him how Rose was doing.
"Take life's lemons and make some lemonade, even if it's really sour lemonade that doesn't taste too good and makes you gag. *shrug* Lemonade is lemonade."
I didn't spot this guy because of a shirt, but because of d&d. Another forumite and I got together at her dad's place to play Dungeon's and Dragons with some other dudes. One of the guys was a DM for another game and was talking about the game he was running when he mentioned trolls. He said something along the lines of: "they're pretty damn hard to kill, too bad they don't just die like other types. It would be easier on the group." Then he turned to the other reader and I and said, "But you probably wouldn't know about that? You wouldn't know about Homestuck." My friend and I looked at each other and then teased him for being stupid because I was scrawling Karkat all over my character sheet and then there was a rant about hipsters or something. IDK.
MORAL OF THE STORY BROS WHO PLAY D&D READ HOMESTUCK TOO.
Better stretch my legs... Sure has been a while.

Nobody around me has even heard of Homestuck or Problem Sleuth. At best, "I've heard of it." At worst, "OKAY, I DON'T WANNA HEAR ABOUT YOUR FETISHES."
Where do you people live? I wanna hang with you guys instead. :<
