And I’m done with that book critique re-write so I’m fucking off to sleep land.
Anonymous asked: im pretty sure mythology is something you dont need to know about for homestuck cause you figured everything out yourself without knowing how mythology works?? so you didnt need to know it in the first place?
That’s not a fair assessment!
I have not figured everything out. I’ve figured out a bunch of stuff, and when you look at my giant theory pile there isn’t much mythology in it, but that’s because I don’t know mythology stuff to make them, and have to rely on my inbox or other theorists for advice in that area.
Kind of like the Peter Pan in Scarlet post: if LuniasM hadn’t paired up to work on it with me, him having read the novel several times himself, then I’d never have been able to come up with it nor theorize in so much detail.
Eg. the reason you don’t see mythology in my theory pile isn’t because mythology isn’t important in Homestuck. It’s because I don’t know any mythology, so if there IS a bunch of mythology you can use to draw important insights about Homestuck/spec, only a mythologically-inclined theorist would be able to unearth them at all. Like LilDurandal or such.
