[[caption-width-right:350:Your name is Eridan Ampora, and there are times when you really hate being a SEA DWELLER.]]

A ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' [[MSPaintAdventures MS Paint]] [[FanFic Fan]] [[InteractiveComic Adventure]] created by ckret2.

Sadly, it has been on an indefinite hiatus since May 2012, and has likely been discontinued.

In which a sea dwelling lowblood troll who would be considered a highblood in an AlternateUniverse where the Sufferer's revolution had not succeeded but instead reversed the Hemospectrum engages in shenanigans in order to fill his non-pale quadrants; has various redrom tension with a ship-happy highblood Archeradicator who shares his love of Troll Disney sing-a-longs but may want to replace the sea-dweller's witch of a moirail; and engages in lopsided blackrom tension with the Imperious Grand Advisier, who may or may not develop black feelings to match the main character's.

Also features: a gold blood hacker who attempts suicide and haunts the royal hive of Her Imperious Condecension, bringing back into the open red feelings between the two of them; a lowblood junkyard worker with sweat issues explores but mostly denies his caliginous feelings for a sopor-addicted subjugglator who is the friend of a First Guardian and a robo-legged gold blood; a turgid backstory is hinted at which involves several previously mentioned characters in addition to another lowblood with sinister motives; the aforementioned nefarious lowblood is revealed to be in cahoots with a coalition of sea dwellers hoping to create a class uprising; the love between lusii is explored and interspersed for comedic effect; and the periodic love affairs of a jade-blooded Luxplorer are thrown in for romantic intrigue.

* {{Adorkable}}: Eridan
* AffectionatePickpocket
* AndIMustScream: [[spoiler: The Ψiioniic.]]
* AngstComa: [[spoiler: The Ψiioniic]] seems to be in one.

* ArcWords: [[EldritchAbomination "Carefully tamed chaos."]]
* ArtShift:
** [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=288&p=548 ENGAGE NEPETA VISION.]]
** [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=288&p=838 Go into the far past.]]
* BadassBoast: Suweet Broski's "I am the Duke of Dreams" speech to Karkat. [[http://tindeck.com/listen/nzcz Listen to it here, voice acting performed by Sam G, and try not to shiver when he gets to "That puts you IN MY TERRORTORY".]]
* BaitAndSwitchComparison: Terezi talking about her lusus and Vriska:
--> You wish you could stay long enough to get a song in, but you have to get back to your fire-breathing cold-blooded murderous monster. And your dragon.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Being an InteractiveComic, this happens to the commenters from time to time. For instance, when [[spoiler:Sollux]] crossed the DespairEventHorizon, majority rule was for [[spoiler:him to jump, but land on a troll to cushion his fall]]. This is exactly what happened. [[spoiler:And it was that random troll's horns that killed him.]]
* [[BetterAsFriends Better as Moirails]]: This is what Eridan and Feferi have settled upon, as she didn't return his childhood crush.
** This is also what [[spoiler:Nepeta]] seems to have decided about [[spoiler:Eridan.]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes:
** Aradia is [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=288&p=524 terrifying]] when angry.
** As is [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=288&p=727 Feferi]].
* BigBad: [[spoiler:Suweet Broski]] seems to be becoming this.
* BilingualBonus: Jadzia Harley's symbol is the Mandarin character for jade.
** The name "Cherna Shapka" is Russian for "black hat".
* TheBlank: Troll Britain's First Guardian...sort of.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: [[{{Deadpool}} Waydie Wilson]]. What did you expect?
* BrickJoke: The DatingSim mentioned in LastLousyPoint is played by [[spoiler:Karkat, whereupon he recognizes Eridan's screenname as having the top score]]. It's also used for an ArtShift gag when Nepeta dons her ShippingGoggles over [[spoiler:Karkat/Eridan]].
** Remember that [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=288&p=79 little girl]] that was supposed to be Spidermom's new troll? [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=288&p=777 Well here she is again!]] '''700 pages later'''.
* CallBack: The fifth thread opens almost exactly like the first one.
* CaptainErsatz: Waydie Wilson, Troll {{Deadpool}}.
* CanNotSpitItOut: Equius is in denial about his [[FoeYay black feelings]] for Gamzee.
** And recently, Equius with his flushed feelings for [[spoiler:Tavros. The trope is mutual.]]
* CanonImmigrant: Terrin Cogita, a history-professor fantroll from [=BtSDLb's=] own fanfic Be the Seadweller Highblood, was later mentioned in the source material.
* TheChewToy: Eridan. Thanks to a series of unfortunate misunderstandings, he is arrested for doing absolutely nothing (except maybe dating a high blood)
* ChildrenAreInnocent: Vriska and Equius as children. They're absolutely adorable. And throwing rocks at each other while arguing about "thingies".
** Altari is also very innocent, and incredibly [[{{Moe}} cute]].
* ConflictingLoyalty: Vriska is associated with many rebel groups, IRIS being the big one, but she tips off Karkat about Eridan's location and his [[WeaponOfChoice Strife Specibus]] against their wishes, anyway.
* CoolShades: Karkat's ''Hate Playa'' shades. Cuvier's shades have also attracted quite a lot of attention.
* CrashingDreams: BANG BANG BANG.
* DeadpanSnarker: Rhosyn
* DespairEventHorizon: [[spoiler: Sollux]] crosses this which leads to...
** DrivenToSuicide: ...him jumping off a balcony.
* DreamWeaver: Suweet Broski. He uses this power to easily collect information from his fellow royalbloods, and even some lowbloods as long as they aren't protected by sopor, which he uses to fuel his schemes.
* EpicFail: [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=288&p=660 Be the quadrant-obsessed sea dweller lowblood with the two big gashes across your face which you recently acquired during a duel with the Imperious Grand Advisier at the conclusion of which you insisted on taking your budding kismesissitude a little more slowly before absconding in a most impressive and gamblignant-worthy manner in order to reunite with your highblood flushed crush only to discover that she has put you in the moirail zone and by the way you are also carrying a bottle of Moon Mist Faygo.]]
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: Especially [[WholesomeCrossdresser crossdressing princesses]].
* EverythingsDeaderWithZombies: [[spoiler:Sollux's body, after being taken over by Troll Britain's First Guardian.]]
* {{Expy}}: Puppetman for Bro Strider, Rhosyn Lalond for Rose, Jadzia Harley for Jade, Jhonen Egbert for John, Daivat Stride for Dave, Hellza Jeffan for Hella Jeff, and Suweet Broski for Sweet Bro.
* FanNickname: The insane gold blood outside [=SUBjugglatorWAY=] was nicknamed Travos by a commenter poking fun at a command ordering (the misspelled) Tavros to "cull this birdbrain this instant." It stuck, and is now the character's only recognizable name.
** Similarly, Cuvier and Eridan [[spoiler: on their drunken shenanigans]] received the nickname '''T'''eam '''S'''alt'''wa'''ter '''G'''rape '''T'''affy, or [=TSWaGT=].
* FanFic: [[http://www.mspaforums.com/showthread.php?41726-Be-The-Sea-Dweller-Highblood Be The Sea Dweller Highblood]], a fanventure by Lucus Casius.
* FantasticCasteSystem: The goldbloods (red, orange, yellow) rule at the top, the jadebloods in the middle, and the bluebloods and violet bloods rest at the bottom somewhere between "nuisance" and "beneath contempt". [[UpToEleven Then the sea dwellers are even lower than that.]].
* FantasticRacism: The tension between the land dwellers and the sea dwellers has shades of this.
* FlatWhat: By Karkat when he finds out that [[spoiler: Eridan has been using his his account to troll people]]. Thrice.
* FoeYay: Several: Eridan/Karkat, Karkat/Vriska, Terezi/Vriska, Equius/Gamzee, Rhosyn/Cuvier...
* ForWantOfANail: Since the Sufferer's revolution succeeded, the hemospectrum is flipped on its head. The royals in [[Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} canon]] are now at the bottom rung, whist the former lowbloods have stepped in as the new royalty.
** InSpiteOfANail: Despite their different places in the hierarchy, many characters remain mostly unchanged. Tavros is still a [[TheWoobie woobie]], Gamzee is still [[MonsterClown insane]], Karkat is still a [[{{JerkWithAHeartOfGold}} jerk]], Vriska is still a [[ManipulativeBastard manipulative bitch]] with irons in the fire, etc.
* AFriendInNeed / IWillFindYou: Both Nepeta and Feferi go out and potentially place themselves in harm's way to help Eridan.
* TheGoldenRule: Subverted. "Do unto others as they have done unto you." (i.e. get revenge)
* GoshDangItToHeck: Equius: [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=288&p=420 Yes. Heck yes. Heck flipping yes.]]
* GovernmentDrugEnforcement: [[FantasticRacism "Violentbloods"]] are required to take [[FantasticDrug sopor pills]] daily, lest they get culled for failing a random street drug test. The tests aren't particularly precise, though, and some lowbloods like Eridan don't bother with them, while some like Gamzee [[TheStoner are too happy to oblige]].
* GuiltyPleasures: Eridan loves the Troll version of "The Little Mermaid" even though it is horrifyingly racist. He'll pan it if someone else brings up the subject, though.
* HeroicBlueScreenOfDeath: Tavros has one in reaction to Equius [[spoiler:revealing his black feelings for Gamzee.]]
** And then Equius has one himself when Gamzee [[spoiler:hate-snogs him.]]
* HeelRealization: [[spoiler:Nepeta]] combines this with MyGodWhatHaveIDone upon realizing that [[spoiler:despite her belief they were better as Moirails, she wasn't actually ''aware'' of how to support Eridan -- and he already ''had'' a Moirail in Feferi. Something she hadn't fully registered despite talking to Feferi, as she was too focused on [[ShipperOnDeck getting them together]]]].
** Keep in mind that, if she got with Eridan before successfully getting Eridan and Feferi together as matesprits--which is where she was heading--she would have been a moirail homewrecker.
* HopeSpot: Following the [[WhamEpisode Wham]] MusicalEpisode, [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=288&p=219 Karkat being trolled]] by [[spoiler:Sollux]].
* HowDareYouDieOnMe: All things considered, Aradia takes [[spoiler:Sollux]]'s death rather well, only crying a little bit, but she's clearly less than pleased, and refuses to let him pass on.
* HoYay: Pretty much a given since troll romance is gender-blind.
* IfICantHaveYou: Rare protagonist example. [[spoiler:Eridan]] attempts to kill [[spoiler:Nepeta]] when she [[spoiler:says she wants to be his [[JustFriends moirail]]]]. He fails.
* InASingleBound: Equius STRONG jumps about a quarter of the way across the planet.
* IronicEcho: After Feferi's WhatTheHellHero speech to [[spoiler:Nepeta]], we have [[spoiler:Nepeta: Be knight. Watch witch rescue princess]].
* ISeeDeadPeople: Aradia, which leads to...
** DeadPersonConversation: ...with [[spoiler: Sollux]]
* KissOfDistraction: Vriska attempts this on Terezi; Terezi responds by ramping it up to a French Kiss.
* KleptomaniacHero: Thus far Eridan has stolen Karkat's belt, keys, and looted the other's room for all it's worth. Makes sense when someone who's dirt-poor breaks into a rich apartment.
* LaResistance: IRIS
* LadyAndKnight: A recurring theme during Eridan and Nepeta's date, leading to the repeated command of "Be knight. Rescue princess."
* LastLousyPoint: Eridan ''almost'' has a perfect score in Surrogia's most popular DatingSim, but he can't bring himself to get the last couple of points by being caliginous with the witch character because [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming she reminds him too much of Feferi]].
* LeotardOfPower: Sharpeye Sharklaw. See {{Stripperiffic}} below.
* LethalJokeCharacter: In their first appearance, Suweet Broski and Hellza Jeffan were considered, well, idiots without any significance to them at all other than being Daivat's friends. Until we learn that [[spoiler: Suweet is [[TheChessmaster an evil mastermind]] and Hellza Jeffan is TheBerserker. And the tropes are played completely straight.]]
* LookingForLoveInAllTheWrongPlaces: Eridan.
** InLoveWithLove: Seems to be a case of this, as he freaks out when Karkat actually tries something on him. For all Eridan likes the ''idea'' of love, he wasn't ready to actually commit to anything.
* MadnessMantra: PICKAXE TO BONE. MAKE HIM SCREAM.
* MakingASpectacleOfYourself: Karkat's HATE PLAYA shades.
* ManlyTears: [[spoiler:Gender-flipped. Aradia is the one crying a single manly tear while Sollux is sobbing inconsolably.]]
* TheMatchmaker: Nepeta wants to get Eridan and Feferi to go flushed for each other, mainly because she herself is pale for him, but now that he's [[spoiler: confessed his feelings for her]] this may be veering into a MatchmakerCrush.
** [[spoiler:Or not. She has decided they are BetterAsFriends, much to his [[IfICantHaveYou dismay]].]]
* [[MethodActing Method Typing]]: Whenever a character's typing is impaired in some fashion, ckret2 writes their dialogue with various... unusual methods, in order to properly mimic the effect.
** Similarly, when Vriska is called to roll her dice, ckret2 actually rolls dice rather than picking an outcome herself.
* MomentKiller: Karkat's lusus does this. Although only Karkat is truly upset about it, as Eridan wasn't ready for what was about to happen, anyway.
* MoodSwinger: Sollux
* MoodWhiplash: [[TropesAreNotBad Used very effectively]] in [[MusicalEpisode Everybody: DO THE SUPER AWESOME SINGY THING.]]
** Really, used very effectively with considerable frequency. In-universe, one of [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=288&p=742 the best moments of Karkat's life]] involved him going through extreme Mood Whiplash.
** Eridan v. [[spoiler:Nepeta]]
--> You know you cannot do it. You cannot kill [[spoiler:Nepeta]]. You cannot even hurt her.
--> Because your CODDAMN FUCKING STUPID STRIFE DECK IS STILL BROKEN.
** [[spoiler: The Psiioniic's desperate pleading with the Sufferer to come back and save him]] becomes, in the space of two panels, ''IM A SHIIIIIIIIP''
* NearDeathExperience: [[spoiler: Karkat]]
* NoMedicationForMe: Since society believes sopor pills are necessary for lowbloods to be mentally stable, those who go without fall into this category. The most prominent examples are Eridan, Vriska, and Cuvier.
* NoodleIncident: Although the readers have been given hints about what went down, we still don't know what exactly happened during this world's version of "Make her pay."
** WordOfGod says it may be part of a hypothetical upcoming [S] page.
* NotADate: Eridan and Nepeta go on one, with him thinking it's a date and her not realizing it.
* OverdrawnAtTheBloodBank: The author's stance is that all trolls have this and most injuries and deaths leave a horrid mess, but the cake has to go to Gamzee, who basically paints the whole room purple before passing out.
-->'''Narrator:''' There is blood on the floor. Blood on the walls. Blood on HIM, oh, God, there is more blood outside [[spoiler:Karkat]] than you [Sollux] knew he had inside him.
* [[SexForServices Pailing For Services]]: [[spoiler:Cuvier pails with Eridan in exchange for Ahab's Crosshairs. Neither remembers the encounter after, leading to a pleasant shock for Cuvier and an ''un''pleasant one for Eridan when they wake up.]]
* ParodySue: Hakuba Dahaag. Unlike most Sue parodies, though, some of her actions are actually portrayed as creepy and annoying. She's somewhat a {{Deconstruction}} of the character type.
* [[LoveEpiphany Pity Epiphany]]: [[spoiler:Equius]] and [[spoiler:Tavros]] both have one, in regards to each other.
* PoorCommunicationKills: "Your life seems to be fueled by stupid little misunderstandings that could be cleared up with five minutes of conversation."
* PrecisionFStrike: ''Equius'', [[GoshDarnItToHeck of all people]], drops one when he realizes [[spoiler:[[LoveEpiphany that he pities Tavros.]]]]
* RecursiveCanon: [[http://btsdlb.tumblr.com/post/25553533509/look-up-ninjaquatic This]] is what happens when Eridan looks up "ninjaquatic" on the Internet after being told to do so on the Internet. Apparently he's visited that page before. Possibly because he just lived it.
* RefugeInAudacity: {{Invoked}} by [[spoiler:Vriska]]: [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=288&p=408 Tell the truth]].
* RewardedAsATraitorDeserves: [[http://www.mspaforums.com/showthread.php?42374-Be-the-Sea-Dweller-Lowblood-5-i-wwill-go-dowwn-wwith-this-ship&s=48227228fd7dc2b878169a31d7a58245&p=5609689&viewfull=1#post5609689 Ioudas betrayed the Sufferer]] to the subjugglators and was, in turn, betrayed by them.
* RightManInTheWrongPlace: A lot of stuff derives from Eridan happening to be in Karkat's room just at the right time.
* RunningGag: [[TitleDrop Be the Sea Dweller Lowblood]]. We always try to be the ''wrong'' sea dweller. Taken to absolutely ridiculous levels starting [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=288&p=477 here]]. We go through almost every sea dweller we've seen before getting to the right one.
** And even after being given [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=288&p=660 an extremely precise description of Eridan]], we still screw it up.
** Recently, we keep trying to be a place or planet, such as Troll Mexico or Alternia. The narrator keeps reminding us that we can be ''on'' a planet or ''in'' that area, but we can't be a planet itself.
*** When we try to be Troll Britain, the narrator finally just gives up and tells us that the only command Troll Britain can respond to is "rotate." [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=288&p=880 It does, in fact.]]
**** Unfortunately, [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=288&p=897 Surrogia can't even respond to that.]]
** There's also the gag of sea dwellers and their collapsing and expanding bladder based aquatic vascular systems (hearts). It can take a tender or touching moment and turn it from collapsing-and-expanding-bladder-based-aquatic-vascular-system-warming into just funny.
* ShadowArchetype: Eridan & Karkat. Eridan fails in redrom because [[spoiler:he's never really pitied anyone but himself.]] Karkat fails in blackrom because [[spoiler:he's never hated anyone more than himself.]] Then there's the whole mess of status and social isolation issues mirrored between them.
* ShipperOnDeck[=/=]LoveChart: The point of Nepeta's shipping wall is to showcase this. She even ships Sollux/Aradia/Tavros as an OT3.
** In a play on this, Sollux wants to get [[spoiler:Karkat/Eridan]] back together after [[spoiler:torpedoing it in the first place]]. Even though he's not entirely sure that's the best thing to do, or why he keeps thinking of 'ships', for that matter...
* ShipTease: For all of the pairings. All of them.
* ShoutOut: Several, including
** Disney's ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' as seen [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=288&p=157 here]] and a few other places.
** Most recently, PiratesOfTheCaribbean [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=288&p=602 here.]]
** WordOfGod says that a ShoutOut to AFishCalledWanda is coming up soon,.
** [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=288&p=365 Hello gentlemen.]]
** The troll doctor Skelpi gets interrupted by Daleks.
** The dating sim uses recolored characters from ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena''.
** [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=288&p=592 Jhonen sees Equius]] [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=288&p=772 as Nicholas Cage]], which is an invoked MemeticMutation of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1lf8oWmnYU this video]], a fan edit of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5PJddmfesaA this Youtube Poop]], and serves as a MythologyGag for John's fanboying Cage in canon.
*** [[WordOfGod Actually no.]] It was because [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/scratch.php?s=6&p=005757 Vriska's description of Nic Cage]], as being "rugged," "sweaty," and having "long hair" sounded suspiciously like Equius. And then, by accident, it turned out that [[http://www.formspring.me/ckret2/q/206188393489533824 Nic Cage in Con Air REALLY looks like Equius]]. Nothing to do with the two aforementioned videos, and the author had never even seen them when the Equius-is-Nic-Cage gag started.
* SoWhatDoWeDoNow: Terezi, after having apprehended Vriska, mentions how she was treating life like a [=FLARPing=] game about justice rather than carrying out her duty as a legislacerator, and isn't sure what to do now that she's caught her target.
* SpaceRomans: Played Straight with Troll Canada and Troll Britain. Subverted with [[GayParee Troll Mexico.]]
* SpurnedIntoSuicide: After failing to [[IfICantHaveYou kill]] [[spoiler:Nepeta]], [[spoiler:Eridan]] decides to do this. He seems hesitant and not quite willing to go through with it, though.
** InterruptedSuicide: His moirail stops him without breaking a sweat.
* StalkerShrine: Admittedly, Karkat and Terezi have a very good reason for collecting as much data on Vriska as possible, but the fact that their "Vriska file" is driven as much by [[FoeYay romantic hate]] as it is by a desire to arrest her makes this qualify.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: [[http://i.imgur.com/d2Qqi.png Sharpeye Sharklaw]] and his fabulous LeotardOfPower is a hilarious male parody of this trope.
* TakeThatKiss: [[spoiler:Terezi]] kissed [[spoiler:Karkat]] and started up their matespritship just to spite [[spoiler:Vriska]].
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Karkat is a magnet for these. Given his own self-loathing, they frequently turn him on.
** Eridan also gets one [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=288&p=656 from his seahorsedad.]]
* ThereIsAnother: [[spoiler:There are ''three'' characters with RED 6L99D. Two of them are hiding this, so the only ''publicly'' known one is Karkat.]]
* TheyDiedBecauseOfYou: Karkat is extremely upset about [[spoiler: Sollux]]'s death, blaming it on their last conversation.
* ThousandYardStare: While visiting the hospital, Karkat gets one upon discovering [[spoiler:his blood somehow retained its candy-red color despite his recent transfusion of green blood, which ''should'' have left it temporarily muted and mixed]].
* TitleDrop: Used several times as a command, often correlates with a RunningGag.
* TrainingFromHell: Threshecutioner training. Because she is a sea dweller, Rhosyn ended up having to repeat it ''[[UpToEleven twelve times]]'' before she would be allowed to join their ranks.
* TriangRelations: All '''over''' the place, but the Nepeta - Erdian - Feferi triangle is probably the most significant. It's a type 4 for moirallegiance; Nepeta -> Erdian <-> Feferi. It's complicated by an overlapping matespritship triangle. Erdian feels unrequited matespritship towards Nepeta, and Nepeta wants to break up Erdian & Feferi as moirails by shifting them to being matesprits.
* TwiceShy: Equius and Tavros both have flushed feelings for each other, but neither of them can work up the nerve to tell the other. Tavros is afraid Equius will only accept his feelings because he feels that he has to since he's lower than Tavros on the hemospectrum; Equius is afraid to tell Tavros because he doesn't consider himself worthy and pursuing a matespritship with a gold blood would be inappropriate.
* TwitchyEye: Rhosyn develops one upon [[spoiler:receiving a totally random hatesnog from Karkat]].
* TwoLinesNoWaiting: Many characters have plot points that interlink with each other. This means a lot of perspective switching whist times halts for characters off screen.
** In fact, due to this, Eridan has spent all of the second thread in Karkat's room. The author joked that if he was still there when the thread ends, she would rename the adventure to "Karkat's Roomstuck."
** It may be ThirdLineSomeWaiting, especially considering how frantically ckret2 was scrambling to resolve all plot threads and get all characters somewhere they could be [[OffscreenInertia expected to stay a while without doing anything interesting]] before the end of thread 4 and not allowing any immediate commands for other plotlines.
* TheUndead: [[spoiler:Sollux.]] He does at least seem happier as a ghost.
** [[spoiler:Sollux's body is [[EverythingsDeaderWithZombies now undead on its own.]]]]
* UnfortunateImplications: In-universe, the troll version of Disney/TheLittleMermaid is quite racist to sea dwellers.
* UnresolvedSexualTension / WillTheyOrWontThey: Many, but Eridan/Nepeta and Sollux/Aradia are the big ones. [[spoiler:At this point, both are pretty much resolved. Eridan/Nepeta is sunk in both red quadrants, and Sollux/Aradia seems to be working despite Sollux being a ghost.]]
* UnusualDysphemism: A therapist is also known as a "pale prostitute."
* VitriolicBestBuds: Type 2 with Karkat and Sollux, like in [[Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} canon]]. Tavros tries to act as their auspistice despite the fact that neither Karkat nor Sollux really hate each other.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: [[spoiler:Cordis Jocure]]. Killed on the page immediately following his introduction page.
* WhamEpisode: [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=288&p=190 Everybody: DO THE SUPER AWESOME SINGY THING.]] (Not that particular page, but the scene as a whole).
* WhatDidIDoLastNight: In the fifth thread, Eridan wakes up with a killer hangover and no memory of the drunken shenanigans he engaged in, who he was with, or [[spoiler:what happened to his weapon]].
* WhatTheHellHero: Feferi is ''not'' pleased when she learns [[spoiler:Nepeta Moirail-Zoned '''her''' Moirail]].
* WholesomeCrossdresser: Eridan and Nepeta (the former out of necessity, the latter for fun)
* WhyFandomCantHaveNiceThings: ckret2 posts a poll to determine which character is shown next. Options are tied for quite a while, then one choice suddenly takes over. ckret2 decides foul play is involved, [[TakeAThirdOption takes neither popular option]], and stops with the polls.
-->"There is no way that many people have voted, MUCH LESS that it stayed that perfectly tied for so long, MUCH LESS that the votes suddenly jumped up for one side that much. I KNOW there were some people who voted specifically to make it balance out, rather than vote for what they actually WANTED. Some of y'all in here admitted that. Clearly, someone else is spamming Vriska now. Fuck this shit. You're not getting Vriska or Kanaya. You're ''especially'' not getting Vriska, since it's at least confirmable that there is somebody cheating in her favor, if not that there are folks cheating in both's favor...Way to go! We're never having a vote again."
