Also Vriska...No matter how many reasonable explanation people write on why she acted as she did, and no matter how much she made me cry with that last pesterlog, I just can't get over how she
And then told him to appologize for being crippled. That was just...my first shocked moment while reading HS. Can't get over it.
EDIT: Oh man. I bet The Summoner has the number 1 as his quirk. Calling this now.
As well as the "..." of course. :b
I support you getting a Tumblr, Holly! I only recently (2 days ago) gave in to it too, and I've got to say I really enjoy it!
And I should change my sig too to yell out for the poll.

But enough about Vriska, I think that Tumblr can be kinda weird at times, but my basic understanding is making a tumblr solely for that cause probably won't do you too much good.
DANI IS THE COOLEST AND SO IS CANDY CORN
So my first reaction was that Vriska (of the actual memory/initial pesterlog) was actually being kinda cute...in a jerky kinda of way...
That is doesn't justify/make me forget her actions of blinding Terezi (or crippling Tauros), but there's something strangely cute in her saying to the effect, 'Let's be/stay friends forever'--there was also a hint of desperation in a casual way (not that Vriska would be aware of it)...I mean, Terezi was her 'sister'/real friend and then Terezi took out her magic eye & arm (an act of betrayal in Vriska's mind--Vriska being someone not expecting betrayal from her trusted Scourge Sister, whom she puts above others)...Since Vriska is a troll and violent/big on revenge and b/c Vriska is Vriska and Vriska is violent impulsive (her blinding Terezi for some reason reminds me of er facing Jack Noir--she thought about it, but she really didn't think about it/the consequences & how it really affects others...she has a distance/is unempathetic/lacks emotional common sense to others? even to those she is close to)... That she still wants to be friends is kinda cute--but also rather creepy (& jerkish) too...
I realize that the knowledge of Vriska's actions, blinding Terezi, isn't new but I think the conversation really brings out emotions and nuances....
I also realize that this is not actually Vriska but Aranea & a dream bubble, but it is supposed to be a memory & up until that point, it seemed that they were following it? Or maybe I am just crazy/too partial, wanting this to have been said by Vriska?
I kinda want to call Vriska now adora-jerky or something now....
I also wonder if Aranea had a spider eye as well pre-death...
On a related note to this eye thing: I think that the trolls with special vision wouldn't lose their special vision just because they die. I mean, their eyes are whited out but that's more of a trait that indicates that they're ghosts. It's not like they can't see anymore or anything, and so it stands to reason that they wouldn't lose their proper sight.

But I still found Vriska a compelling character. Not one of my favourites, but her entire involvement plot-wise was possibly the largest of all the trolls. Actually, next too Karkat, she was probably the most important for a very long time.
So when are we going to see Rockey Papaya. Also Rocket Papaya shall be A1 Dualscar's name.
Your chumhandle is mouthyMerc and you type with Mostly correct grammar but no commas or apostrophes. http://www.tumblr.com/blog/askcharlierobinson This is my tumblr.
You know, I really didn't like Vriska at first. At all. Because, you know, the whole bitch thing. I really have no idea where that changed. All I know is that by [S] Make Her Pay I found watching Aradia beat the shit out of her to be quite satisfying. But then, by the time I caught up, Vriska was all I could think about. There's just something about her.
I CAN'T EXPLAIN IT
But yeah, it's not like I can say she's not an interesting character. I was even excited to see her in this dream bubble.
That is acceptable Balp. :b It also reminds me how I need to learn how to see the difference between Gamzee's, Eridan's and Feferi's colours.
Nevertheless, none of this matters because, again, it would be a doomed timeline.
