The story is that a woman approached my friend and I outside of Otakuthon Montreal, and asked to take our picture. Of course, we said yes, and she had us pose near where we were standing waiting for our ride home. She later posted the picture to her tumblr, but I guess she didn’t know it was cosplay, so now among her lovely portraits, there’s one of myself cosplaying Rose Lalonde (sans contacts, and with messy makeup, but still).
Feel free to delete my commentary, but not the credits.
I see so many people wanting John Egbert to be Crocker John. It’s a great and scary concept and all, but all I could think of was…
She can’t have him.
No one can.
You see, he’s not like the other characters. No one can have John Egbert. That’s his role. Ever since the beginning of Homestuck
John has always been the steadfast most annoyingly difficult to control character, and even the almighty Condesce and Caliborn himself can’t control him.
He is mastered by no demon, no elder god, no omnipotent doggies friendly or otherwise, and certainly no fish queen. John Egbert is, as of now, the one truly free character in all of Homestuck, held back only by his love for his friends and no weaker bonds.
He’s the orginal and perfect embodiment of a breath player. you can’t control the wind, you just deal with all the shit it does.
