Not quite sure what to think of this:
I think that each alpha sprite will be prototyped with one of the trolls in the tubes. I think it makes more sense to bring back existing characters rather than reviving alpha versions of rose and dDave or giving some bunny robot the ability to talk. Here are some predictions:
Jane might get Feferi, since they're both life players and related to the Batterwitch.
Roxy might get Feferi (if those dreambubble trolls are foreshadowing their future sprites), or Nepeta because they're both rogues and like cats. Nepeta will then become prototyped with Gcat and become one of the most powerful characters in the comic. Maybe Equius since he's also a void player and it would be interesting if he became a cat while Nepeta became a horse.
Dirk might get Eridan because they're both princes or Nepeta since they're both heart players, and again because of cat-horse switcheroo. Equius could also be prototyped with Maplehoof and become part-horse of course.
Jake might get Vriska because of "blue girl", because they both like adventures and, again, because of dreambubble shenanigans. Maybe also Tavros because they're both pages. Though personally I'm hoping for Eridan, not only because they're both hope players but also because of all the potential. Imagine Jake going to Eridan and being all "Please help me i have three friends and an A.I. all crushing on me at the same time what do I do?" and Eridan's reaction.

Imagine him in an actual fight with absolutely anyone else under absolutely any other circumstance than the one that you mentioned, which relies on an even more specific condition to even be feasible. Imagine his power being completely pointless. Imagine the only person who can benefit from this being Gamzee so that he can have more colors to paint with.

They may have just run out of buckets and had to start using bottles instead.

VV Do it. VV
Doc Scratch saying the Dolorosa was owned by sea dwellers for the rest of her life actually makes it more likely her last days were in Mindfang's possession than if Hussie had said it directly. We do not have the final word, so I will leave the preconceived notions alone aside from this mention that it could easily go either direction based on what we know.
Karkat has the emotions and morality of a human.
NO NO! Don't run away this isn't an attempt to ship j/k or something come back!
Take notice how Karkat is probably the only troll to not do all kinds of morally sketchy stuff. (Kanaya didn't either, but she never questioned anyone else unless it was directed to her or her friends).
Tavros and Feferi are considered the "nice trolls", but take a look at what they do.
Tavros is the pacifist player because he communes with the monsters, but it arguable that brainwashing masses to do your bidding is worse than killing them. Hell, he even did it while playing FIDUSPAWN, that's outright animal abuse.
Feferi orphaned many trolls of their lusii to feed hers. While this was necessary to keep everyone alive, a human would at least feel some guilt, or try and help the orphans. Feferi, on the other hand, is shown grinning while she pulls dead parents into the sea.
Karkat was actually pretty moral all the time. He tried to help out Tavros and Eridan, even though in troll standards they failed at romance and deserve no (platonic) pity. He kept trying to unite a bunch of mentally unstable hormone driven kids under his leadership, which would be hard even if they were from an alien race that is based on self gain and backstabbing.
That's the reason many people find it easy to project themselves on Karkat. He is grumpy and mean, and at times worse then the normal trolls, but on the greater scale of things he acts as like a human.
From that we can infer that Blood has to do with morality and emotions.
I never really intended on joining the forums, but to hell with it. I have an IDE that I'd like to share with fellow Homestucks (actually I'm not sure if I am a homestuck, is there some kind of procedure for procuring the title?) anyway, it's less of an IDE more of an observation, but I figured I'd put it out there just in case it hadn't occurred to anyone else.
Mixed signals are a big problem in romance... Unless you're the seer of mind and can (so far as we know) flawlessly predict the outcomes of people's decisions, including your own. Terezi knew Jack would follow the trail back to the meteor in the timeline that never was. She knew Vriska would fail to stop him from doing so. She knew Vriska would alter the result of the coin flip. She knew Dave would use his powers if she told him how.FCG: YOU'VE BEEN SENDING HER AN ENDLESS STREAM OF MIXED SIGNALS FOR AS LONG AS YOU'VE KNOWN HER.
Of course, she did not seem to predict her own reaction to doomed-Dave's death, which is a potential hole in my little bubble of thought here.
Anyway. Whatever Terezi is doing with Dave, there is little room for error. If she wants Karkat, then what she's doing is being done specifically to make Karkat jealous, or to have this conversation, or something. If she wants Dave, then what she's doing is being done specifically to make Dave like her and let Karkat down as easy as possible (assumption).
Since Karkat is not being let down easy, and the Seer of Mind would surely predict this and not want her friend and once red-rom to be angrier than usual, it would seem she wants Karkat to feel this way. The Seer of Mind making a bad decision when she can predict reactions is like the Thief of Light not having all of the luck. It shouldn't happen.
Besides, Terezi was always good at manipulating people, and now she has bonus powers to aid her. Unless she wants Karkat to be upset (seems unlikely to me) then what she is doing will make Karkat open up in some way and improve their relationship.
Alternatively, she knows that they would both be happier with other people (seer of mind) and that is why she's doing this. I don't think it's as simple as Karkat is making it out to be though. Of course, I'm usually wrong with my predictions in Homestuck. It flies in the face of logic. It does an acrobatic pirouette off of all the logic and lands on some plush ass of retardedness. There, three HS jokes in a single sentence, now you have to show my IDE mercy, it's what a friend would do.
Did anyone notice this in the latest few updates? Sorry if anyone did, can't be bothered to check.
When Karkat referred to Terezi's relationship with "you-know-who," he said that he couldn't be better, as he had horns so nubby they didn't exist, candy-red blood just like him, and also was a better artist. While the obvious contender for this would be Dave, WV is also standing right there in the picture, everyone's messing around with cans, and he has both no horns and candy-red blood.
Call me crazy, but these are literally the only two people that Karkat could be referring to, they're standing right there in the picture as he says it, and it has to be deliberate on Hussie's part that the ambiguity is present.
So does this mean that Terezi x WV is canon? Or will I just be Jossed by Hussie in 2-3 pages?
IDE/Theory: After the three years are up, WV will glomp John and they will have the most adorable reunion ever. The last time WV saw John, he was impaled by Jack on a slab of rock, after all.
Colonel Sassacre knew that Betty Crocker was not human.
Critical analysis of art assets taken from videogames (read: sprite rips). Now I've seen it all.
ASKER: Do you identify with any of the trolls?
ANDREW HUSSIE: Gamzee but only cause he killed a bunch of them.
