I think perhaps there’s been a misunderstanding about Paradox Space. This is what Hussie said:

"Any point in canon could be visited and elaborated on, whether it’s backstory, some scenes that were skipped over or alluded to, funny hypothetical scenarios which have nothing to do with canon events, or exploring things that could have happened in canon through the "doomed timeline" mechanic."

This is what some of you read:

"Paradox Space will fill in all the gaps in Homestuck, make your wildest AU ideas and crack ships a reality, cater slavishly to your demands about what parts of canon you want to see expanded and essentially exist as some kind of cure for every little moan you’ve ever had about Homestuck. Also there will be no Gamzee."

I’ve gotten some really horrible asks and fan mails this morning alerting me to the fact that someone has made a post asking people to downrate and report my submissions (as well as a couple others) to the WeLoveFine Homestuck contest.

I’m sure many people are not aware, but my name on WeLoveFine is Bidelle Ward!  The person who submitted these are me, they’re not stolen at all. I know I made them nearly 2 years ago now, so they’re familiar around Tumblr, but I assure you, it’s me who submitted them.

I know people who watch my (now defunct) art-only blog (which is now this blog) don’t know about my submissions to the contest, so I figure that’s how this horrible rumor got started.

I’m not sure what kind of damage has been done to their rating, but please, PLEASE, if you downrated them, thinking they were stolen, please try to contact WLF and have your rating changed!  This contest and these designs mean a whole lot to me and if I get disqualified or downrated for a reason like this, it would be devastating.

And if you haven’t rated, if you can, please do so, they’re right here:

Dave:  Click here.

Rose:  Click here.

Edit:  Since there seems to be MORE drama about this post in general, please realize that the point of this post is so people can know to please not report these submissions!   I would hate to be disqualified because of a misunderstanding!  Do NOT RATE THEM UP! Just rate them however high or low you want if you haven’t rated yet.

I wondered why these designs weren’t higher up the ratings.

How is it even possible for me to disagree with BOTH sides in this whole “debate” around Dirk’s orientation?

Maybe it’s just something about the aura of self-rightenousness around this thing - the ridiculous conviction that shipping actually matters on one side and the counter-argument that tries to twist all of canon around in order to come up with an explanation that isn’t actually necessary on the other. 

To clear up some bullshit:

1) Shipping doesn’t matter. It really doesn’t matter who you ship people with. No really. It does not. Let’s face it, shipping is basically glorified wank fantasies. And you can “do that” over whatever you want.

2) On the other hand, pretending that Dirk’s canon sexuality is more ambiguous than it really is isn’t necessary and is slightly insulting to people’s intelligence. The exact details are unclear, but what is pretty clear is that he’s into dudes and not girls. People don’t use the word “orientation” to talk about feelings about individuals, they use it to refer to gender.

3) Not that canon matters. I mean, if we’re going down the route of “we must respect canon” then we have to throw all the genderbent AUs out the window too. And all the demonstuck stuff and the douchestuck and every single other AU that’s ever existed. Shipping needn’t be dictated 100% by canon.

4) Still, it’s disingenuous to pretend that shipping Dirk with girls is the same as shipping John with boys, because we live in a hetero-centric culture where the vast majority of characters you see in media are still straight. Shipping Dirk with girls will inevitably feel a bit weird to some people when there are so many actual straight characters around. It’s perfectly okay for people to find it “weird” and they’re not oppressing anyone in doing so.

5) But still… it doesn’t actually matter. Because let’s just get one thing straight (er, sorry)… nobody is basing their decisions around whether to come out or whether to start a relationship around who you ship or don’t ship. Nobody is choosing to discriminate against LGBT people or not discriminate based on who you ship. Fictional characters don’t need the same respect real people need, because they’re not real.

And now I feel I’ve slightly debased myself by getting into this ridiculous discussion, so I’m going for a fucking long shower.

Fucking hell, for a second there I actually thought someone in the upd8 tag was asking for actual, real “genetic material.”

So dawns the 150th Day of the Gigapause. 
We shall celebrate this event in the customary fashion by bathing in our own tears, and staring soulfully at the mspa website while tapping the f5 key in memory of simpler times in our youth when tricksters danced, mind controlled clowns hid in closets, green skullmen wore little bow ties and everybody died. Repeatedly. 
Happy Anniversary!
