    Homestuck fan poetry varies from this:
    To this:
    And I love it.

    Wormwitch I'm building a squishmallow army!

    The houses are haunted
    By white night-gowns.
    None are green,
    Or purple with green rings,
    Or green with yellow rings,
    Or yellow with blue rings.
    None of them are strange,
    With socks of lace
    And beaded ceintures.
    People are not going
    To dream of baboons and periwinkles.
    Only, here and there, an old sailor,
    Drunk and asleep in his boots,
    Catches tigers
    In red weather.

    Another favourite fan poem. I love the multilayered references and this format is really hard to work with, I've tried.

    Wormwitch I'm building a squishmallow army!

    The furies are at home
    in the mirror; it is their address.
    Even the clearest water,
    if deep enough can drown.

    Never think to surprise them.
    Your face approaching ever
    so friendly is the white flag
    they ignore. There is no truce

    with the furies. A mirror’s temperature
    is always at zero. It is ice
    in the veins. Its camera
    is an X-ray. It is a chalice

    held out to you in
    silent communion, where gaspingly
    you partake of a shifting
    identity never your own.
