Dear Fancy Santas,

codtiereridanjackson:

All I want for christmas is for Tavros, Nepeta, Vriska, Equius, Eridan, and Feferi to stop being dead.

Love,

The Homestuck Fandom

I’d go for some not-dead trolls.  Especially Tavros (because Tavros is the most adorable troll ever and deserves to have a good life), Nepeta (because offscreen deaths are not cool), and Feferi (because seriously, she got no screen time or character arc of her own and it was sad).

TW for the source link: Ableist slurs, not the ones you’re expecting.
It’s really problematic, all the stories/art in which Tavros’ disability ‘goes away’- in humanstucks, in post-Sburbs, et cetera. Sometimes it’s explained- in a ‘good ending’ post-Sburb, often the idea is that Tavros’ wish to be ambulatory is granted, for instance, and in one particularly good AU, the reasoning goes that, in a less-violent human society, Tavros’ original injury would have been less severe and his medical care better- but often enough, it’s left entirely mysterious how or why Tavros is walking around unaided. It gets weirder when you consider that Terezi is almost always still blind in AUs and humanstucks, including in works where Tavros can walk. One especially sees not-paraplegic Tavros in works where Tavros is supposed to be sexually appealing, and that doesn’t have all kinds of unpleasant undertones to it.
I wish fanwork creators would do more with Tavros’ disability, instead of so often just ignoring it entirely. I wish I would see fic with Tavros, exposed to human society, coming to embrace disability as an identity and being stronger for it. I wish I would see fic where the gap between Terezi and Tavros is examined in a critical way. I wish all these things because there’s a bit of a gaping hole in canon where Tavros and disability are concerned, and isn’t one of the roles of fanwork to patch the holes in original fiction?
Anyway, I have a lot of thoughts about this, like how disability is kind of important to Tavros as a character and a lot of things make less sense outside of the context of his disability and you kind of just can’t scratch that out, and is Sburb really the kind of game where the boy in a wheelchair magically gets the ability to walk back at the end, and separate from the risk of culling is living without the ability to walk inherently less valuable than living with the ability to walk- but I’m gonna leave those alone for a bit because reasons.

THIS.  All of it.  I thought the canon itself did a rather good job of subverting Tavros&#8217;s &#8220;undisabling,&#8221; and I&#8217;m sad to hear that fandom rather missed the point of that.  I&#8217;d really like to read quality fanfiction (or have epic roleplaying&#8230;) about Tavros, Terezi or both dealing with disability stuff, either in the context of troll society, in a post-game setting, or otherwise.  Especially if it would involve interactions between the two of them about it.

Tavros deserved to die the way he did. I mean, yes, Vriska had paralyzed him, she teased and bullied him, but Vriska redeemed herself in the end, and Tavros actually got working legs again anyways.
However.
Tavros left Vriska to die by by bleeding to death, an ordeal…

One of the other posters summed it up pretty well as to why I disagree with the original post here.  Also, the fact that Tavros got robot legs later does not mitigate Vriska’s throwing him off a cliff (for, might I add, nothing resembling a good reason)… especially when his legs had to be chainsawed off for this to happen, something that, even assuming he felt none of it, is pretty horrific especially when you consider how squeamish Tavros is implied to be.  Additionally, nothing she did, to my mind, really makes up for her maiming him, verbally and emotionally abusing him, trapping and borderline sexually assaulting him, using what he believed to be her last dying act to severely traumatize him (I really wonder how she expected to get any other reaction from him by doing that… I don’t know if she could’ve gotten him to kill her in any case, but that wasn’t the way to do it), humiliating him, baiting him to fight her and then killing him when she knew she had the upper hand.  Her confession to John was incredibly self-serving, focusing on the impact it had on her - and why she had basically felt entitled to torment and kill someone less powerful because she didn’t get what she wanted from him - without really recognizing the damage she’d done to Tavros or any of the other people she’d harmed.  The worst that Tavros can be said to have done, by contrast, was to crack under pressure, which is pretty understandable under the circumstances.  There seemed to be no malice whatsoever in her actions, and before she started controlling his mind he was even trying to help her.  I really don’t see how what Tavros did, either by intent or actual action, is worse than what she did to him.

Trigger Warning for: Rape, identity policing, asexual erasure, death threats, misogynist slurs

I <3 SwankIvy. Platonically, of course. Her videos and articles on asexuality are some of the best out there!

Also, this includes quite a few examples of the oppression (defined as cruelty, maltreatment, and injustice) of asexuals because of their asexuality (death threats, triggering profanity, threats of rape, identity policing/denial of identity/erasure, etc.) It is on an individual level rather than being systematic, but I still think asexuals should be able to feel safe and accepted when they come out and/or talk about asexuality. I recognize that some of these responses were influenced by other sources of oppression, such as rape culture and misogyny, but that is where intersectionality comes in. And even if there isn’t a source of asexual-hate based on the term itself, there are many aspects of society that by their nature lead some people to reject the validity of the asexual orientation (and often insist that it is a mental illness, hormone deficiency, or other disorder), which I still interpret as being anti-asexual in tone, at least where acceptance is concerned.

This was funny… well, her commentary was at least… and then those end comments… jeez.  :S
