My headcanon Karkat has pretty, curly hair, STFU.
Have a low-res picture of this sketch since I’m afraid using my scanner will wake everybody around me. I’ll scan it properly in the morning.
Once again, I was reading a story of JumpingJackTrash’s, and nobody writes the characters quite as deliciously. Naturally, I got a terrible case of the feels for this fic, so I’m probably going to be doodling it for a while.
Also, I don’t know shit about uniforms, so I just went with this design. Then I got to the medals and I gave up forever.
hello! i love their expressions. john is so smug and karkat is just not impressed at all. <3
actually I kind of like this just on its own merits

[i wasn’t going to write anything today, but… then i did. this keeps happening.]
Karkat considered getting up and leaving. He considered pretending to fall asleep. He considered actually falling asleep. He considered finding Sollux and stabbing him in the ear with a pen. He considered stumbling against John and breathing furious demands across his lips.
That last thought was a mistake. He had to jerk his gaze away from John’s lackwit grin.
“Tell me what?” John suggested at last.
Karkat’s eyes snapped back to him in disbelief. “How is your hearing that good? That’s just not right.”
One of John’s eyebrows twitched. “I can read lips.”
I wanted to let you know that Meagerlysane readings of both the first and second chapters of GVGH have been posted on Homestuckpodfic! And I just posted my reading of the second chapter of GVGH!
these are so delightful! thank you both!
yeah so I haven’t got a scanner at home but
king john kissing his consort’s neck kind of makes me wish that I had.
HNNNNNG. that is all. <3
I DREW YOU FANART.
BECAUSE GVGH IS MAKING MY HEART DO ALL SORTS OF THINGS. (QωQ)

Uniform designs were based off of this
and i strained my neck
this is just so utterly fucking gorgeous. just. so. so gorgeous. i. uh. wow. i can’t even. what are words. holy shit. just. faces and. details. and hands. and colors. and expressions. john’s glasses. karkat’s tousled hair. the way karkat’s medals are all neatly lined up and john’s are a bit haphazard. the decoration on the saber scabbard jesus christ i just keep finding more things to love. this is fucking SPECTACULAR.

[and after all that research on the wedding, these doofuses decided to spend a whole chapter talking. well, i’ll get to use it next chapter.]
He half woke at dusk when a servant came in to light lamps. He lifted his head enough to watch the man replace the final glass chimney and go out, then let it sink again. Falling asleep in his clothes had been a terrible idea; he was tangled in his sopor-logged shirt, he’d ruined his stockings, and it all just felt generally odd. He’d have a hell of a time getting clean.
Actually, he’d have a hell of a time getting out. His arm didn’t hurt all that much, but when he tried to move it it felt tight and strained, and he didn’t think using it was a good idea.
It was all just too much trouble to deal with. So he went back to sleep instead.
So basically I’m going to blame GVGH for this as well? I was browsing omgthatdress and found this from the late 18th century and it basically begged me to draw Jade in it. So I did. I have no idea whether or not GVGH!Jade would actually wear this, but it’s the reason I was browsing clothing from that period at all, so.
how delightful! yes, i think she would absolutely wear this!
“What did you do during the war?”
So yeah uh look I jumped on the bandwagon and to add my own flair Karkat got a ponytail because historical hair that’s why and whoops it appears I forgot to color Karkat’s horns oh well also Karkat is taller because he is standing straight like a good little soldier and John is trying to be sneaky
The hand-holding is allegorical or something pretentious like that I don’t know what I’m even doing just let me draw old-timey military uniforms
(PS John is wearing two pistols and a bangin’ cravat under his ringwraith spy costume and don’t you forget it)
i wish i knew how to keep your tags when reblogging this, because they’re hilarious. historical hair hellyeah! and john looks… really quite ominous when you can’t see his eyes, doesn’t he? i beg to differ on the handholding though. it is not allegorical. they’re gonna make out.

[and yet again, i sat down thinking ‘this time for sure i’ll get to the actual wedding’, and instead the characters insisted on wasting time and being cute. next time for sure!]
Once Eridan had gone, and Sollux with him, Karkat hoped for some time alone with John — or, failing that, with the food. But it was not to be. Instead, he had to sit for a portrait with John; rather, if he understood the explanation, for some kind of pre-portrait dry run that didn’t count but had to be done anyway. The artist wanted to familiarize himself with their faces or something. At least it could be done in Karkat’s suite, so they could shut out the unending bustle of the palace staff.
“But my dress uniform’s being cleaned for tomorrow,” he protested while the artist set up his apparatus.
“Oh, we’ll have the formal one done later,” John said lightly. “Uniforms and crowns and all. When you can get your arm in the sleeve. Let’s sit on this sofa here, will this work?”
“Of course, Your Majesty,” the artist said. He was a short, pudgy man who mopped his pink face with a lace-edged handkerchief so often that Karkat suspected his charcoal sketch would be one big smudge. “I’m looking for natural poses, natural expressions. May I move this lamp? Good, perfect. Just pretend I’m not here.”
