I am guilty of doing Homestuck fanart for a class assignment >___> Mainly because it was easier drawing the trolls than coming up with my own characters to embody the zodiac.

Apparently me improvising is popular! So here is a little bit more.

Also a bit of Schazer chiming in that is funny but not fitting with THE MORE YOU KNOW SPECIAL KIDS EDITION

I can't be the only one who thinks their bellies look like faces right?
I mean a lot of bellies do, but these more than any other.

Re: This is gonna be the thread where we talk about stuff
So I am taking a creative writing class and the next project is to write a short story. The only requirements are that it has to be less than 5 pages and can't be genre writing. One thing he's been saying a lot has been to write about characters rather than events, or that you can have a very mundane thing (guy goes to lowes to buy parts for a fence) that makes an awesome story because of the characters. So I decided I want to write about a subtly racist guy, because I find racism fascinating. I figured I'd write aabout him and the "protagonist" meeting on the first day of class and he comments on all the asian people in the class in a way that makes it incredibly obvious that he's slightly racist.

And I realized. The more I flesh out this character the more he looks like douchetacular Z

Wheat Wrote:indirect allusions to group behavior

this is the thing I'm thinking about. When you first brought up DZ I had an image of this guy in one of my class who did exactly those things you said. And I associate him with the kind of people who often notice that "this school is full of asians" and then make racial jokes or comments based on stereotyping. And what interests me is where people define the line between stereotyping and racism.

Okay it has been a long time since DZ was mentioned anywhere.
He was someone that wheat had the displeasure of interacting with in real life, right?

This is probably only hilarious to Plaid and I because Tim Shadbolt (mayor of a little town called Invercargill) is a national treasure. She just wasn't on IRC when I found this so this is for our amusement later (and I suppose anyone else who has an interest in New Zealand current affairs shows, for whatever reason).

Isn't there already someone named Eddie Brown?
Also I just realized that there is some serious implications with that as a last name.

Re: This is gonna be the thread where we talk about stuff
It's a game about lying to people and figuring out who is lying back to you.
Every person receives a role in secret, and is either part of a "town" or "mafia" team, or a third party who generally works alone. Each player has their own win condition, but generally people on the same team will have the same kind of condition to win.
Games work along day/night phases, where the day is generally spent conversing and in the night everyone is unable to post (because they are asleep) but people sneak out of their fictional houses to perform special actions on eachother.
People in the town attempt to root out the mafia players lurking amongst them by collectively voting on who to "lynch", based on who seems most suspicious, at which point that player is out of the game and their role is usually revealed to the world so you can see if you were right or not. It then moves on to night time when the mafia make their move.
Unlike Town players who only know their own identity, mafia players know who everyone in their team is and can communicate secretly at night. Their goal is to kill everyone in the town team, and every night they get to pick someone who dies, at which point day starts again (with the dead person's role being revealed etc).

This is then made more complicated by the addition of roles such as doctors, who can protect someone at night preventing the mafia from killing them, cops, who check one person per night to see if they are town or mafia, and roleblockers, who prevent other people from performing whatever action they were trying to do at night.

That's as short as I could make it and it's probably still not very good as an explanation, maybe you should just try reading one!
