    Re: The Altblood Challenge

    Okay so I have this little dealie of a bloodswap called Disasterbound, which might serve as an exploration into my SBURB Enamel universe from a more canon viewpoint, and into troll society.

    Anyway, basically, here's six sweeps olds Flarping and a horribly failed attempt at romance:


    EDIT: Have another one.

    He just has Karkat-sized buckteeth.

    Wow, been a while since I made one of these. Guess the lack of advanced editor scared me off. Regardless, I made a small brown Feferi / indigo Sollux chat in which Feferi is assigned to get Sollux into the Medium.

    Yeah, don't really feel like it's one of my better ones. Oh well.

    Re: The Altblood Challenge

    So, I realise that no one has posted on this thread for quite a long time. However, I recently read the entire thread and was inspired to do one of my own swaps.
    So here is my Purple Rose and Tyrian Tavros:

    That's a pretty small issue, though. As for the actual log, I've found bold text helps a lot with color recognition, which was a bit of an issue for me. Nice stuff though, and it's good to see this thread hasn't been completely forgotten.

    Whoops, it was in bold in word but I forgot to put the formatting back in. I figured that since both Gamzee and Kurloz were members of the cult, we can probably assume that most other purplebloods would be too.

    Re: The Altblood Challenge

    I come bearing a question!
    Okay, so I really want to write a Brownepeta and Tyrian John pesterlog, but I don't think I could pull off John, or the pesterchum format/text colors. (<== Major noob.)
    So, if anyone would like to help me/write for John, maybe you could PM me and we could start writing?
    If this is the wrong place to put this, I'm sorry.

    Proper color codes are in the Original Post "Major", if that is your real rank. Top of the first page. Just highlight in the post editor, add any color tag, drop the right code into place, and repeat like three dozen times.

    And my best advice if you're having trouble writing for a character is to just sit down with a bunch of dialogue samples--ideally with similar emotional tone to what you want to write--and just binge-read. If you read enough stuff in a given "voice", that voice can get stuck in your head for a while. (Ever find yourself thinking in Britishisms after reading a book by a British author? Same deal.) Additionally, you could take advantage of Homestuck's callback-heavy nature: type tweaked versions of two or three canon segments, and use those as "anchors" to orient yourself to the character. That would usually work better for swaps that have canon-version interactions to mirror though. Maybe hold off on this one, and start by exploring the character in conversations that would be easier to "cheat" that way on? Where's Karkat in this AU?

    Brown trolls are an interesting choice, since we don't know much about the caste's role in Alternian society beyond "cannon fodder", so it's hard to gauge what sort of aspirations to apply to a character. It offers some freedom, but also a lot of temptation to take the "easy" way out and just slap Tavros-specific traits on there, although exploring what a character might be like if they were less confident or more humble can be interesting too. And of course with the trolls there's all these seemingly-minor details to fiddle with. Do you just keep the same lusus for each caste, in line with the usual kidswap methodology? What about ancestor lore? Whose zodiac motif do you lean on? How should you handle troll last names?

    Come to think, Nepeta is an interesting choice too because of how heavily the outward impression she gives is influenced by her lusus. This goes back to the question of zodiac motifs; would she still be a catgirl with no cat to imprint on?

    The fact that I checked this thread on a whim and saw this post caused my guilt nodules to become painfully engorged. Tonight I will begin the arduous (but worthwhile) task of draining the fluid from them.

    By which I mean once I get home tonight I'll get back to work on this and update the chart. Also: draft an apology note.

    In THAT case I will work backwards from here in order to help you out a little

    Re: The Altblood Challenge

    Ok, a quick look tells me that everything after this post is what needs to be charted. Mostly just writing this down for my own reference, I'll get to it once I'm at home.

    We're so mean to you, letting you believe that your work here its done and then coming back to make more work for you. It's very inconsiderate of us.
    Of course, this doesn't mean we're going to stop.

    Re: The Altblood Challenge

    Okay! After a shameful hiatus too long for me to want to figure out the exact length of, this shizzle is bizzle. Back. It's back, is what I'm saying.

    Anyway! Chart's updated! It took a bit longer than I was expecting, but I'm going camping for the weekend and I'm not gonna have reliable internet and I was not gonna put this off any longer, so I pulled an all-nighter to get it done.

    I think over the weekend I'm gonna write up a Teal Karkat / Jade Vriska thing that popped into my head as I was filling the chart, and when I get back I'll probably clean up the OP a little. Other than that, I'm pretty sure everything's back on track!

    i really need to find a non-manual method of filling the chart, that shit takes forever in paint

    I'm legitimately surprised that the Jade Jade row/column remained completely empty for so long.
