    Introduction Thread 8 (Our Curiosity is Awaiting Your Arrival)


    [Image Temporarily Not Extant.]
    This is the thread where we introduce ourselves as a forum, and you, in turn, introduce yourself!

    1.1: Introduction
    1.2 Forum Directory
    (aka "where should I post?")
    2.1 Forum History
    2.2 Questions and Answers (FAQ)
    , sir or madam, and welcome to the MSPA Forums! To summarize this place as a whole, we're all about having fun and general shenanigans. So just be yourself and find a conversation to jump into! And don’t be spooked if we go off topic, because we do that a lot.

    The law of the land here is Respect and Teamfriendliness (which means to be chummy to one another and to always make an effort to contribute positively to the community you see around you); a more specific set of rules is here and you should read them if you haven’t already or else we won’t take you out for Dairy Queens after this is over.

    These forums are looked over by 6 administrators (Andrew, Betelgeuse, Byron, Michael, NotASenator, Ryan North, and tynic) and 8 moderators (ashdenej, Avi, Blueberry, Drillgorg, Esrever, Lexxy, ProfessorLizzard, Wesley Foxx and Zuki) who may edit your posts, or move/lock your thread. But don’t feel personally offended, they’re only trying to make this place better! And don’t feel afraid to approach them (PM them) if you're having a problem with another user or any moderating descisions done.

    The most important thing to remember overall is to have a good time here! This forum is like a posting carnival, and you should have fun with it.


    Great! Now that the boring stuff is over with… it’s time for me to help you find your way through the forums! You see, I'm member of the Badger Buckos (troop 105b), and if I can successfully guide you across the forums, I can get my “helping baffled weirdos” badge. So come with me on a magical tour through the internet!

    1.2 Forum Directory


    First, there's the most densely-populated subforum—the MSPA subforum. That's where you talk about all of the crap in Homestuck (and Problem Sleuth). Talk about how sweet the last update was, talk about things you just realized happened in past updates, re-caption the images from the updates, tell the world your ideas and crackpot theories about how Dad is the Mobster Kingpin of Homestuck or how the troll planet is just a metaphor for the Reconstruction South, gush about the newest What Pumpkin Merchandise, discuss the fresh jams created by the MSPA Music Team, or ask questions about the story/forums that don't deserve their own thread.
    Also, if you'd like to discuss a recent update, perhaps try discussing it on our pesterchum IRC channel (#pesterchum on esper) instead talking about it in the MSPA Chat thread. Discussing it on our IRC channels is more conducive to expressing simple reactions, and helps relieve the forum’s typical post-update load.


    The MSPA Forum Adventures subforum is by far the most expansive subforum. It's almost its own community: some who post there can end up posting nowhere else. It's easy to see why: the whole subforum is a lot of free entertainment from a bunch of dedicated, personable individuals. If you're looking to get started in the world of the MSPA Forum Adventures subforum, just ask in the MSPAFA general chat thread or jump right in to an adventure to make a suggestion.
    People advertise their adventures in this thread, post fanart for other adventures in this thread, and you can find many adventures mirrored off-site in a style similar to Andrew’s MSPAs. There’s a table of contents for the forum adventures that have been completed. Lastly, if you are looking for an IRC channel to discuss MSPAFA, go on #MSPAFA on Esper.

    There are also two subforums for the MSPAFA forum: the Completed Forum Adventures collection and the Cradle
    *The Completed Forum Adventures is a dignified resting place for the minority of adventures which are seen through to completion or those that have passed 100 pages and needed to make a new thread. Feel free to necrobump threads in here if you want to say you enjoyed them; it’s predominantly an archive forum, and new users would most likely enjoy them.
    *The Cradle is the go to place for all aspiring adventure authors. Implemented to be quality control to filter out the majority of adventures that get abandoned before anything happens, it is the only place in the Forum Adventures subforum where threads can be made. Once you show effort into updating your adventure, it will be moved out into the main subforum.


    The Games forum holds all forum activities with a competitive element that tend to have 'game-like' mechanics like RTDs, DUELS, Tile games, and the eternally popular Mafia. Here you will find stricter restrictions on player actions (like a game), or game-like mechanics (like stats or inventory systems) with a much better-defined ‘win’ condition. Toss around your game ideas in the Games Subforum Chat Thread. Don't forget to read the very important rules! And always remember, that it's not whether you win or lose, it's how you play the game.


    The Collab/Roleplay forum, born from the Miscellaneous and Role-play subforums, holds any and all threads that focus on collaboratively telling a story or role-playing and that aren't so heavy on the mechanics, such as Grand Battles, GURPS and other RP campaigns. It also houses many planning threads and other projects related to the rest of the grander games and adventures forum, like Adventure Critique Thread, the Music Request Thread, and the Collaborative Planning Thread.

    Further inside, is the Sburb/Trollslum role-playing subforum for all Hussnasty Derivative Role-plays. From one of the Aliens from Alternia to a freaky horrorterror, any RP based on Homestuck goes here. Make sure to read the TrollSlum Guidelines before posting.








    The newest addition, the Webcomics Forum is the go-to place to talk about any other webcomic on the entire internet! Come and discuss the latest update of KC Green's Gunshow, Chris Hasting's Adventures of Dr. McNinja, Tom Siddell's Gunnerkrigg Court, or our very own Michael Firman's Moe! If you don't see or don't think that a webcomic has/needs a thread, then go on into the webcomic chat thread and speak to your hearts content. Just remember, not liking Nedriod is against the rules.


    The Art forum is where you go for one of two reasons:
    The first reason is that you have done a work of art, and would like feedback or critique.
    In that case, you may want to check out the doodle thread for drawing, the creative writing thread for writers, and the "post music you made" thread for musicians. If you plan on making a large number contributions to one of those threads and don’t want to “take up too much space” in them, or have made some kind of more specific or involved work you think is needing more varied and detailed feedback/would like possible discussion on it, consider making your own thread.
    The second reason for hanging in the Art forum is if you’re a fan-artist. There, you can do fan-art of the characters, draw romantic fan-art of the characters (but not too romantic), read and write up some fan-fiction, or listen to and make some MSPA fan music. If you want to chat about fan-art stuff on IRC, try the Pesterlite IRC channel (#pesterlite on esper)--it's like pesterchum, but more fan art-centric.

    There's also a subforum in for Group Projects (and Art activity Threads): it's where you go for collaborations, game modifications, activities (like "draw a picture with your eyes closed") and forming teams for creative projects. You can make humorous photoshops of past MSPA panels, or if you’re looking to get all meta with your fan-art, here’s a thread where we draw other forumgoers.. Lastly, there is a much anticipated Fan-Made Music Album, a collaboration between the fan artists in a way similar to how MSPA's Music team does it.


    The Fan Projects/Meetups Subforum is the perfect place for any extensive project related to MSPA or the forums at large. Want to set up a meet-up? Made a nifty program? Do you have a Fan-site? This is the place for you. You can download and give feedback on the Chat Clients based on PesterChum, view the adventure's of multiple bunnies that were mailed across space and time, the similar adventures of a certain demon's coat or a beautiful pony, randomize yourself a Sburb Title and Land, or input in the upcoming NEPETAQUEST 2011. Check out the Meet-Up Index before making a thread asking about fans in your area!


    The Movies/Music/Books and Games! forums make up the Discussion subforum (Also affectionately referred to as the the Nerdcrap subforum).
    The Movie-Music-Books is where you go when you want to be a fan of popular media and see if other people here also are similarly fans of the piece of media you have in mind. There's a thread for movies, music, books, and a general links thread (as in, "here's a cool website; here's a cool youtube video"). As long as you make a passable Opening Post explaining what it is and how to get or see it, you can talk about any show or series, just check and make sure there isn't one already!

    The Games!, is there for any kind of game, be it card, tabletop, indie, console, or whatever else! There is a MSPA Steam group, and a thread forgames by independent developers.
    If you want to talk about games in general or don't think that a game deserves its own thread, then just take it to the Video Game Chat Thread.
    Just like in the main media subforum, you can make any thread for any game that's out there, providing that it's opening post has clear information about it. If you plan on playing or running a game on the forum, you might want to head to Collabs/Roleplay or the Forum Games sections.


    At the top of the main forum page is the Administrative Forums, the three subforums inside are where the moderators and admins keep us all up to date about what's going on.
    The Forum Questions and Answers forum is here so you can give general feedback, report bugs, or ask other questions regarding the technical workings of the forum. It also has all of the latest happenings on the forum software, so pay attention!
    Below it is the Admin Notes forum where the moderators and administrators keep track of universal forum things in three threads. Here you can look up the changes to the MSPA Forum software, a list of known bugs NotASenator is working on, and the Log of people who are banned from the forums.
    Finally, there is also the Forum Events subforum, where the admins will keep us up to date on forum wide happenings, such as the monthly Name Changing Thread.


    At the very bottom, we have The Archives, there to commemorate threads of yonder. For a long time, all that was there was the locked Forapocalypse subforum, which was a 3-day cross-forum event regarding the thematic demise of the old forums (since we switched forum servers and software). The images to the stickyed threads are currently broken, but a mirror can be found here. Since then, some moderators began archiving art threads and various old, timeless threads as well.


    The Suggestion Box: there is a crater where it used to be ha ha


    And that brings us back here. The General Chat Forum is laid-back altogether and the people who frequent it are pretty chill. The map in the spoiler below contains links to some of the more prominent threads to chat in.

    ((Can Town does not exist yet so this has been placed under a spoiler.))


    And lastly, one of the keys to becoming part of a forum's community is its IRC channels. We've got several here.

    On the Esper.net server: (you can use any irc client like mibbit to do this)
    #Pesterchum (discusses the story of Homestuck, especially recent updates)
    #Pesterlite (a fan-artist centric IRC room)
    #MSPAFA (a gathering place for authors and readers of those in the Forum Adventures subforum to talk about adventures)
    #GrandBattle (for authors of the Grand Battle adventures in the Collab subsubforum of MSPAFA to discuss and plot Grand Battles)
    #mspafia (come by and talk about mafia or any forum game that's in the Games subforum)


    On the IRC of http://blog.skaia.net/
    #MSPlayers (for voice actors and friends)
    #Radio (for discussing Homestuck radio broadcasts)


    Remember, there’s something in each forum for everyone. So interact freely!


    (Or you can stay for the next post and learn more about the history of the forum and read some frequently asked questions!)

    2.1 Forum History--in which I give the illusion that I know about things

    So now you know where and how to post , but you’re still afraid you won’t fit in with all the cool kids (despite assurances that you probably will!) because you don’t know what to post. Don’t worry, we’ll let you in on a few things, just to let you get used to the waters. Presenting: the History of the Forums.



    2.2 Questions and Answers



    And that wraps up class! Your homework: be wicked rad.

    Re: Introduction Thread 8 ()

    Have an optional template, courtesy of Phantos.

    You could fill it out, image form or not, if you want to say more than "I'm new. Hi." but you don't have another idea.

    Re: Introduction Thread 8 (Our Curiosity is Awaiting Your Arrival)

    SOME QUESTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES (if you want to answer some of them, all of them, or none of them, all three options are fine)

    I will answer them as well.

    1) What is your favorite MS Paint Adventures moment?
    [S]Descend. Everything came together perfectly in that one flash, so many questions answered, so much tied together that writers lesser than Andrew Hussie would never have been able to make come together...in fact, that's the point Homestuck became my favorite thing. I liked it before, certainly, but that's the point I knew I liked this story the most and no one could ever convince me otherwise. I kid you not, when the flash ended and I saw that up to that point exactly one year of Homestuck had passed, I stood and applauded.

    Then I got on the forums and found out it was actually delayed a day for at least some time zones but retroactively posted on the 14th, and I just laughed because that was even more perfect somehow.

    2) Who is your favorite MS Paint Adventures character?
    Gotta go with Karkat. Why? I actually don't know. I just like the ragey guy.

    3) Favorite non-MSPA work of fiction?
    *points to avatar*

    4) What music do you like?
    I am not one to judge between genres, merely between songs. Therefore, I enjoy some classical, some rap, some country, some pop, some rock...but doing the math of amount listened divided by amount liked, I suppose I am most partial to rock.

    5) What is your favorite Homestuck album?
    Probably the fifth one.

    6) What is your favorite MSPA ship?
    JohnxRose. Why? Quite selfishly of me, it's wish fulfillment. I am a socially awkward young man obsessed with fantasy and geekdom who is also honest and is blessed/cursed with a good heart. I most prefer the company of young women, dark, slightly cynical one moment and optimistic the next, sarcastic, and witty. Again, wish fulfillment. All other ships I am okay with equally.

    7) What is your favorite color?
    Orange. Though technically the color-picker qualifies that as Dark Orange, so perhaps it is time I update my colorful vocabulary.

    8 ) If you were a food, what kind of food would you be?
    Grilled chicken with a slice of lemon on the side, mostly for decoration but edible if you like.

    9) Where did you get your avatar, and do you have a link to a bigger version of it?
    It's a modified version of Luffy from One Piece that I created myself.

    Re: Introduction Thread 8 (Our Curiosity is Awaiting Your Arrival)

    So wait, do I say hello here?

    Hi

    My name is Toby, I'm 16 years old and I'm Italian, currently living in Dubai.

    I have a fair (haha what) number of interests including reading (things like Sophie's World and The Bell Jar, not to mention Diskuwarudo) tennis, gaming and the almighty internet.

    I've been reading Homestuck for about half a year (???) now, and I easily see it as one of the better things I've gotten myself into (y)

    So yeah cool, hi.

    (oh dear god what if I'm posting in the wrong thread I will never get over the embarrassment aaaaaaaaaaaaaahh)

    Don't worry, this is the right place! Hopefully with you here to start the chain of the thread, many more will arrive.
    Oh cool! I was worried because nobody else had posted :P

    Re: Introduction Thread 8 (Our Curiosity is Awaiting Your Arrival)

    Here comes another person to make this thread a little more lively.

    I've had this account for a while (relatively), and I'm going to finally use it a bit. I'm an 18 year old who just finished his first semester in college studying for a computer science major and a music minor. I'll use that one set of questions up there with one of mine.

    1) What is your favorite MS Paint Adventures moment?
    I don't really have a favorite moment as much as a memorable moment. The one I remembered the most was the part with the three way showdown with the trolls because of both the buildup and the resolution and also the fact that every discussion of it were all about people saying "She can't do that. She can't possibly be that fast and powerful". It was hilarious to watch.

    2) Who is your favorite MS Paint Adventures character?
    Going to go with Dave because his pesterlogs are usually hilarious and also because he's one of the best developed characters IMO

    3) Favorite non-MSPA work of fiction?
    Really love The Legend of Zelda series. Just love pretty much everything about it from the setting to the stories to the gameplay. If your looking for some sort of non-game answer it would be a little difficult because it shifts from time to time.

    4) What music do you like?
    This is about the only time I would use the word eclectic because that's what I basically am. I really like all the Homestuck albums partially because of all the different styles that are there in each volume. I like a lot of your romantic and baroque style musics a bit and I mostly go by a sort of song by song basis for judging it. My dad personally got me into King Crimson and I've been meaning to listen to a bit more artist like it. I also like quite a bit of jazz especially from a man named Don Ellis if you've heard of him but I kinda just go normally with what sounds appealing at the time.

    5) What non-Homestuck things do you like to do.
    I really like video games especially ones that are just a little bit older than the current generation. I also like to play music and I currently play at least competently three instruments, the piano, the viola, and the pipe organ with the last one being my best and what I'm studying for my music major. I do like to program and I need to probably do it more than what I currently do and I also like to read and watch some movies from time to time.

    6) What is your favorite Homestuck album?
    I don't really know probably something like alterniabound or The Felt or something. It changes a bit from time to time.

    7) What is your favorite MSPA ship?
    I don't really care for the shipping that much but I do like some of the weirder one like JohnxFefari (come on they have never even talked to each other) or the really insane ones like safexBathtub. These are just to laugh at, the romantic aspects of the series are not the main reasons I'm here.

    What is your favorite color?
    Green I just think it looks pretty

    9) If you were a food, what kind of food would you be?
    probably some sort of chicken with pasta, preferably pesto.

    And that's about it. I hope I haven't come off as anything bad at all. I just think this is a cool forum that I want to be a part of.

    So, uh, hi.

    I'm Daniel and I'm 16 years old. I joined the forums because I've no one to talk to about Homestuck in Brazil :/

    I had written a huge post with answers for these questions above, but my browser crashed and it's late and I need to sleep.

    Re: Introduction Thread 8 (Our Curiosity is Awaiting Your Arrival)

    Hello, I'm John and I've been on for a while, lurking and trying to get Pesterchum to work. Now that I'm home and it's working, I figure it's time to introduce myself. If you want to message me on Pesterchum, I'm usually on as abaftEscutcheon and sometimes adumbratedArmament. It's cool to talk to you guys!

    Apparently I derped up and ended up posting on the 7th thread. Lucky me. Anyways, I'm not entirely new here. I've lurked the forums for about 2 years, and I just now took it upon myself to make an account. I'm afraid of commitment.

    Man, the new people keep pouring in... no wonder you guys are already up to your 8th thread. Makes me feel like I'm an old member, almost.

    I introduced myself last thread; my name is metaphysicalMaestro, and that happens to be the pesterchum account for the Human character I made. You can pester me there, or at technologicalNobility (my general Pesterchum account.) Feel free to add me for general shenanigans or to test a character and their quirk on me. ;D

    1) What is your favorite MS Paint Adventures moment?
    THIS.

    2) Who is your favorite MS Paint Adventures character?
    It's between Terezi, Rose, and Kanaya, really.

    3) Favorite non-MSPA work of fiction?
    Dresden Codak, for the art and awesome story arcs. Definitely worth a read. There's not really any set order of events; there's story arcs and little tidbits of stuff in between, so it's not supposed to make too much sense chronologically.

    Rice Boy, because EVERYTHING HE DOES IS AWESOME. Seriously, check them out. Start with Rice Boy, then go to Order of Tales, then catch up on Vattu. The short stories there are pretty awesome as well.

    4) What music do you like?
    I like a lot of stuff, but I stick to Techno, Dubstep, and NIN. Helps keep me motivated.

    5) What's your typing quirk?
    Occasionally, I tend to over-punctuate, by means of commas and such. Otherwise, I type pretty normally, really.

    6) What is your favorite Homestuck album?
    Can't decide. All the albums.

    7) What is your favorite MSPA ship?
    Terezi and Dave, the two as a pair crack me up.

    What is your favorite color?
    Dark Blue.

    9) If you were a food, what kind of food would you be?
    Cheese and Apple Cider.

    Hi, I'm Sci (Peter), 30yo from London, England. Someone mentioned Homestuck to me in passing a few months ago and I then spent a few night reading it through from the start, because once I start reading something I kinda have to see it through to the end in one go. :P Been really enjoying it and cackling out loud to myself on numerous occasions, as well as being reduced to entirely manly tears a few times (*cough-Cascade-cough*).
    Finally decided to join the forums after finding one of the forum-comic without realising, the following them back here and getting the lightbulb come on over my head. o_o

    Re: Introduction Thread 8 (Our Curiosity is Awaiting Your Arrival)

    Greetings, people focused upon computer screens and at the moment specifically at my rambling, bumbling sentence of text. I'm Fen and decided to join the forums after much silent lurking. You can blame the "What is your "Hero" title?" topic for my presence.

    Other than that, Hi. Glad to be here.

    Re: Introduction Thread 8 (Our Curiosity is Awaiting Your Arrival)

    1) What is your favorite MS Paint Adventures moment?
    My favorite moment would be [S] Wake. That flash just managed to give me so many goosebumps. The soundtrack, the god tiering. All of it. Add that Tavros died, and he was my least favourite troll.

    2) Who is your favourite MS Paint Adventures character?
    Definatly Vriska, sadly. She died, however. That won't ever stop me from loving her hah. Of the living characters, I guess Alpha Bro. He's just such a great character already. Can't wait to finally hear more of him.

    3) Favorite non-MSPA work of fiction?
    Hmm, well I would have to say Chrono trigger. Damn, that game really caught me in its amazing story line. The art, the story, the music. All of it was amazing. I played trough it two times in days of non-stop playing it.

    4) What music do you like?
    Very limited sadly, my favourite music would be Avant-garde metal. Bands like Diablo Swing Orchestra are the coup de grace of the music industry in my opinion. Outside of that, I really enjoy the music from Homestuck. The OST of Cave Story is amazing as well. I've been listening to it non-stop ever since I started playing that silly indie game. I tend to enjoy most game music. Add that I also like music like techno and dubstep, but I don't tend to listen to that sort of music that often.

    5) What non-Homestuck things do you like to do.
    As most people of our generation, I enjoy playing video games. Outside of that, I'm quite an internet person. You can find me in every farthest reaches of the web. I'm not much of a content creator though, I can't make music, nor make art and such. I find it shameful. But I have my reasons.

    6) What is your favorite Homestuck album?
    Alternia, really shows the brilliance that is the music of Toby Radiation Fox.

    7) What is your favorite MSPA ship?
    JohnVriska. I'm not a shipper at all, except for that couple. They just seem perfect to me, add that Vriska's showing of red feelings was rather cute. Shame that Vriska is dead though......but outside of that. I don't ship.

    What is your favorite colour?
    Tyrian purple. This isn't because of Homestuck. But because I'm a historian. I love the Byzantine empire. And their royal colour is Tyrian purple. That's why I like it. It shows power, wealth, dominance.

    9) If you were a food, what kind of food would you be?
    Something rare most probably. I don't know. Probably sweet, all girls always call me sweet. Perhaps something like toffee. I'm quite sticky hah.

    10) What's your typing quirk?
    I strife to write in perfect English. This includes a good use of punctuation marks. Words spelled in the correct way. And that sort of stuff. I also refuse to write in American English. You'll never see me write colour as color. I also never use the word Awesome for that reason. Because I hate that bastardy word with a passion.

    I'm doing my best to have even decent visits to the MSPA forums. But understand that this is a creepy big place. And I'm not much of a forumite.

    Hi, guys, Ana here! I'm sixteen, love writing/drawing/reading/video games and other shenanigans which I can't think of at this moment and which you're probably not at all interested in.

    I never know what to say on these Introduction threads, but I figured I should at least make you aware of my existence. So I shall keep it short. See you around!

    PS: Wishing you all a merry Christmas... or a great Sunday if you're not celebrating. (:

    Ok fine, I'll do this. I am known around here as The_Unoriginal, for those of you that cannot look to the left.

    1) What is your favorite MS Paint Adventures moment?
    The Fruity Rumpus Asshole Factory. Hidden in those walls of text is some of the funniest banter I have ever read.

    2) Who is your favorite MS Paint Adventures character?
    Andrew Hussie, despite his total lack of control regarding his creation.

    3) Favorite non-MSPA work of fiction?
    Ummm... movies? I don't like picking favorites that much.

    4) What music do you like?
    Not country. And not Emo/Screamo

    9) If you were a food, what kind of food would you be?
    The kind that people do not want to eat.

    Re: Introduction Thread 8 (Our Curiosity is Awaiting Your Arrival)

    Hi, my name is Lee (Despite the confusing username) and I've caught up on Homestuck for the past week and a half.

    I'm 19 years old, live in Israel and am currently working as a website editor for a foundation. Also, my favorite color is Navy Blue.

    I love video games, tennis, learning languages and the Internet.

    I figured that since I like the story of Homestuck so much that I might as well sign up and see the community.

    So... Hello!

    Re: Introduction Thread 8 (Our Curiosity is Awaiting Your Arrival)

    Hey all! The name's Riah, I'm a 20-year-old college student and just recently started reading Homestuck. My younger brother has been reading it since the beginning and finally got me to read it a couple weeks ago. I read all of Homestuck in two weeks. All of it. And my conclusion is that Homestuck and its fandom are amazing! I'm pretty excited to be here. : )

    So here are some things:

    1) What is your favorite MS Paint Adventures moment?
    [S]WV: Ascend. It's one of the early moments, but the entire animation just gave me chills: WV's flight across post-apocalyptic earth, the meteor impacts, as well as the guardians being generally awesome. It's what made me really begin to love homestuck. Not to mention Explore is one of my favorite Homestuck tracks, it was just so fitting. I listened to it repeatedly for about half an hour after first hearing it. xP

    2) Who is your favorite MS Paint Adventures character?
    This is really difficult because I love so many of the characters, especially most of the characters still alive (luckily for me). I'll go with Terezi though, partly because I am a Libra, and I feel that I have a similar personality to her. Karkat, Sollux, Kanaya and all the kids are pretty awesome as well.

    3) Favorite non-MSPA work of fiction?
    I'm quite fond of the manga Fairy Tail, as well as the Zelda series.

    4) What music do you like?
    I like a lot of alternative rock and folk (I Coldplay), as well as older music like The Beatles and... actually it's mostly just The Beatles. I've recently begun to get into 8-bit music as well (initially because of the game Cave Story), or anything pretty on the piano, violin or fiddle.

    5) What's your typing quirk?
    I repeattttt consonants (sometimes illogically) when I get excitedddd.

    6) What is your favorite Homestuck album?
    I still have to get through a lot of the Homestuck music (there're so many awesome tracks!) but so far I really dig Vol. 1-4. Especially Explore and Black.

    7) What is your favorite MSPA ship?
    KarkatxTerezi, mainly because it's adorable! I like it whenever John or Dave bring up the topic to Karkat and he gets really defensive/vague. I'm not a super dedicated shipper though, and I will essentially like anything if there's good art for it. :P
    I'm also very partial to the friendship between Karkat and Sollux.

    8 ) What is your favorite color?
    Blue, green, and pretty much all combinations of the two. Especially teal, partially because I just like the sound of the word 'teal'.

    9) If you were a food, what kind of food would you be?
    Something sweet. Maybe Raspberries. Or cinnamon, if that counts as a food. Or tea! Indecisionnn.

    Re: Introduction Thread 8 (Our Curiosity is Awaiting Your Arrival)

    I haven't been on in months, so I'll re-introduce myself as I feel obligated to do after long absences.

    So hi! I'm Acey, I'm 18 (19 in February!), and I'm going to college in San Francisco.

    1) What is your favorite MS Paint Adventures moment?
    The one in my avatar. I just about cried because I ship it so hard.

    Also, [S] Make Her Pay and [S] Wake because I am incredibly fond of Aradia (see below) and like when she does awesome things.

    And of course, [S] Cascade has a place in my heart, since I stayed up all night to watch it! :P

    2) Who is your favorite MS Paint Adventures character?
    Aradia is my preshus babbu favorite, but I'm also really fond of Terezi. Out of the kids? John, without a doubt!

    3) Favorite non-MSPA work of fiction?
    Not sure.

    4) What music do you like?
    I'm a huge TMBG fan, and I listen to a variety of music (though most of it does fall under the header of "alternative").

    5) What's your typing quirk?
    I sometimes type non-questions with question marks at the end?

    6) What is your favorite Homestuck album?
    AlterniaBound, I think. (Rex Duodecim Angelus FTW!)

    7) What is your favorite MSPA ship?
    *points to avatar* Sollux/Aradia warms my heart in ways it probably shouldn't. I also really like Kanaya/Rose, Dave/Terezi, and John/Vriska, and I'm 0kay with most other ships. Except Eridan/Feferi and Equius/Aradia 'cause I'm majorly squicked by stalkerishness?

    8 ) What is your favorite color?
    Purple!

    9) If you were a food, what kind of food would you be?


    I'M A PRICKLY PEAR Probably a durian or the aforementioned PRICKLY PEAR because they're awful and disgusting and a bad person on the outside, but sweet on the inside.

    Or something.

    I don't even know.
