Least Favorite Homestuck Character?

Discussion in 'Fan Town' started by Jake, Jun 6, 2015.

    Jake boy howdy!

    I wanted to take this opportunity to ask everyone who their least favorite Homestucks were and why.. no judgments just curiosity

    Mine has to be Jade, I view her as a Mary Sue type and just find her overall annoying, however I'm not going to hate anyone who likes Jade since its just a fictional character and everyone's entitled to their own opinion

    I'm also not fond of Vriska after what she did to Jake... make that all the Serkets in general

    Jade is my least favorite as well. The big thing for me is how what she did to jadesprite is what my mom did to me all the time. Which would be fine if it were portrayed as horrific like when vriska forced tavros to kiss her or the cromit scene, but both the comic and the fandom seem to see it as "oh no precious jadeypoo made a mistake, she must be so embarrassed!" And in fic she's always portrayed as far closer to the white side of morality than somebody who beat up a crying girl for crying. Sometimes I can't even read through the pages where jade hurts jadesprite because of the memories it brings. And the fandom response to her that never includes any visceral disgust at that scene the way it does for other similar scenes is also hard for me to stomach.

    Cronus. Just...Cronus. Hits too close to home.

    Also not big on Eridan for many of the same reasons, and I hate Equius for what he did to Aradia. Again, too close to home.

    There's a lot of characters that I don't dislike that I find overrated, too. Dirk, for instance--he's my least-favorite human kid (I still like him fine, but I don't find him especially engaging), but the fandom is fucking obsessed with him. Same with Dave and Karkat, though I like them a lot more.

    (For what it's worth, I personally love Jade, but fandom portrayal of her is so awful and strips away a lot of her flaws. She has a serious temper, she's honestly kind of a bitch sometimes (no pun intended)...it'd be a lot more fun to read fic about her where her dark side was more closely examined! And I do understand why y'all don't care for her, for what it's worth.)

    I am accepting bids to hate or love the character of your choice!

    Bidding starts at five US dollars and goes up from there.

    I will post that X is problematic, transmisogynistic, patriarchal, neo-liberal, and a big poopyhead.

    On tumblr, so you will know it's really real!

    All my noTPs have either Eridan or Gamzee in them. I think that means I hate them. I don't even know why. I hate Cronus but I also "dat me" him so ??? on that.

    I also think Jane is boring.

    I agree with you on Jane and would also like to add Sollux, Kanaya, and John to the space underneath the boring umbrella.

    Omg no, i love jane. She is the bitchy little boss nerd of my trash heart. I also like jade a lot but yeah damn do i wish she were written more complexly more often because she is nowhere near as all cheerful puppygurl as she is usually written.

    Vriska hits my 'does fucked up things, everyone insists they're actually TOTALLY FINE' rage button. Which would make her a pretty good villain but as a hero makes me flip my shit every time she comes on screen.

    Jake english bores the hell out of me, idk why he's so popular. Still more interesting than john tho.

    Gamzee and Kurloz are tied for being the most boring pieces of shit I have ever been forced to look at.

    As far as character that I despise most it's Tavros. I hate Tavros. A lot. Watching him get fucked with is sadly very amusing to me because I hate him so much. I will say that I did really love when he flew away from Vriska. That is the only thing I have ever liked him for though.

    As far as notp it is Grimdorks. As in I get legitimately fucking pissed off when I see it. It's silly and dumb and I'd rather not get pissed at it but I just kind of. Do? It's the Frodo/Sam of Homestuck. So infuriating and disgusting even though it really shouldn't be because it is just a ship in a fictional thing???

    NOTP? Let me tell you about the sheer neverending depths of my hatred of EquAra.

    Seriously, how anyone can look at a guy literally forcing feelings onto a girl who has NO interest in him and go "aww, that's so cute!" is beyond me.

    @Acey as an equius fan, I wholeheartedly agree. There is no actual relationship there. If I try really hard I can imagine them being kissmessis, but even that's a stretch. All the nopes.

    If I shipped it would be because I want to explore the abuse angle. I personally don't, but that's more that I don't really care too much about Equius ship wise. Or much in general. The cutesy angle people go with does bug me though because. It wasn't cute? It was abusive.

    With that sort of thing though my least favorite are badly done portrayals of Mindfang<3The Dolorosa. If you're working with the canon versions of the character it cannot be healthy. It just can't and I really don't see a post-abuse Dolly being fine with Mindfang. Like even remotely. Certainly not enough to start a relationship with her. I do see that though and it rankles me. Dolofang is honestly one of my favorite ships. I just want it addressed that it is abusive. Amazingly so.

    Now AU Mindfang or some bloodswapped Mindfang? Go for it. So long as I can go "Yeah that seems like a reasonable enough alternate development for her" I will probably be fine with things. My Porrim is dating the one AU I'm in's Mindfang after all and it is a healthy and at times adorable thing. But that Mindfang developed differently and away from "I AM JUST GONNA MIND CONTROL BITCHES AND GET WHAT I WANT".

    ...granted she's a mob boss and basically signs off on people's murders if not carrying them out herself on a pretty regular basis. So. Yeah.

    THE POINT IS. If we're working with the people in the comic as we see them, which people often are, then it's not going to be healthy.

    Well given the batfuck chaos that is the homestuckian cosmology we can give him a "sure fuck it".

    Seriously.

    I honestly want to write fic exploring Aradia slowly realizing that what happened was actually super fucked up, but I'm scared of being judged because so many Equius fans think he did nothing wrong?

    And especially since a lot of the ideas I have are based on my own experiences with stalking and sexual assault. By separate people. I am not the luckiest girl in the world, or the best judge of character.

    But yeah, as I think I've mentioned elsewhere on Kintsugi, I didn't realize quite how much my sorta-rape experience had fucked me up until I realized that I had developed an outright phobia of penises. And the idea I have for the trigger here is similar to what happened with my realization--someone (probably Sollux because I'm SolAra trash, but it's not like...Healing Cock fic or anything, he's just in the fic) touching Aradia's chest during a totally consensual sexual encounter and her having a panic reaction on this very deep subconscious level. And then the realization kinda follows from there, slowly but inexorably.

    I suppose you could write it and not share it at large? Like you could share it just here and not on, say, Ao3. I'd certainly be interested in reading it if you do write it. That way you're still getting out what you want to and showing it to people if you want. Just not out in the abyss with Equius fans who will flip at you.

    I don't think I hate any of them, but I just do not like Tavros. Idk why- it might just be that I find his quirk really annoying to read and most of the voice actors I've found opt for making him sound whiney. *shrugs* that and he just doesn't interest me that much ig. Of course I haven't caught up in a long while so there might be something now that would change my opinion, but I doubt I'm going to catch up before it ends. Maybe not even then.

    I don't have a lot of patience for misogynistic assholes and he just fucking. keeps. talking. Even Serkets can get their awfulness done in less words.
