It does have potential for character development. Alone in the vents, hearing distant echoes of honks and terror and scuffles fading in and out in the distance, praying to troll jegus that you're not found and doing your best to never think about what you've just seen and what must be happening.

Just like David Carradine...
Why didn't Equius fight back at all? I mean, I'm sure he could have just snapped the strings with his STRONG fingers.
But, look - if you start out saying "AH puts a lot of thought into this story", and then you say, "it seems like he's just doing this to be [whatever]", you're no longer giving him credit for putting that same thought into the latest development, are you?
It's that kind of statement that irks me, the kind that assumes that, because a development happened that wasn't to a critic's liking, because an author chose a different path than the one a reader would prefer, that somehow then it's not a carefully-considered act of the author, but some kind of cheat or shortcut. I don't see that as reason, I see that as bias.
The slowly dawning realization that Hussie might actually mean this has for some time now made me fear for my mental state when Homestuck ends. At the very best, we will be forced to imagine Sisyphus happy.
Don't forget Aradia, who technically has one - even if Vriska kind of allowed herself to die off.
Edit: aka what weirdguy said
"The universe was so аshamed you slept late, its shrivelling into a raisin."
"Is that why the ceiling is so low?"
I expected to see Equius to STRONGFLEX his neck and break the string. So disappointed it didn't happen.
even if it is creepy how he died its just so sad. being choked with his broken dreams.
I enjoy hats of many varieties. I do not enjoy baseball caps or those socks people have the nerve to claim as hats.
Much thanks to romancePhilologist for my awesome new avatar. if you don't get it check my profile picture, then... then all the pieces will fall into place.
Also, I want to say to everybody that I really am sorry if my attitude earlier hurt anybody's feelings. It was silly for me to let my emotions eek out to the forefront the way they did. So although an I'm sorry means nothing... I'm sorry.
Oh gog Aradia, get over here and rewind everything with your magic time powers right now.
I can't get over that face. Equius enjoyed that murder so much. Really, it's just the worst thing.
He went there to talk with Gamzee. Gamzee shot him in the leg to subjugate him. He realized there was nothing he could do, and that was his destiny to die there at the hands of the one he had scorned for so long.
He never went there with the intention to die, but it still happened.
Vriska's original body was done for either way - if Tavros had kissed her, we're still left with dat Vriska corpse.
right before Kanaya died, we found out she had the Matriorb, and saw her making friends with Jade, and had a moment to appreciate her as a character and care about her future. then we got the same thing with Equius and Nepeta. from here on in I'm going to assume that any characters who reveal their vulnerabilities as emotionally complex individuals are fucking doomed.
