Is there any way you could turn down the brightness on your computer screen?

Because — to be as vague and unspoilery as possible — the part of the story you’re approaching contains a lot of extremely bright colours, and it would probably be a good idea.

Thank you very much for the concern and the vague warning. I read Homestuck zoomed in because my eyes are not as good as they used to be. My computer is already all the way down in brightness, but concerned user megatogepi sent me a link to something called Flux. Supposedly, it should help. I am installing it now. 

Additionally, I want to thank epiccriddle for also submitting a slowed down version of that last eye-shattering GIF. Although I did not use it, I am very grateful for you reaching out to help. 

As mentioned in my spoiler policy, I do not generally take kindly to people informing me of or hinting at things to come. However, with that last GIF and my bloody eyes in mind, I am extremely thankful for this warning.

Thank you very much to anonymous submitter, “avid reader” for slowing down that GIF. That was ridiculous. While I understand that it played a significant role in the plot in how violent it was, the GIF (look at own risk) reminded me of the old Porygon episode that sent a bunch of kids to the hospital from seizures. 

My eyes are still trying to adjust. Flashing red lights at strobe speed coming from a large, brightly lit computer screen are rarely a good idea.

Holy shit that hurts my eyes, can anyone do me a huge favor and slow that gif WAY down so I can replace that? Send it back as a photo submission. Disregard the tags. Thanks.

Not only was Jane just told her dad is dead, she was just reminded about how one of the only people who was a constant source of reassuring  happiness, one of her best friends, was murdered. Additionally, her other “friend” just tried to regift a present to her from the same guy that murdered her friend. Plus, her birthday is tomorrow. In all of her grief, she put on a mind control device that is probably about to completely take over her body and ruin her life even more. Today fucking sucks for Jane, huh?

Jane is completely devastated, and in her devastation, all she sees is others who have happiness. Someone could always argue that someone else has it worse, but that is the nature of tragedy and the following sadness. It does not matter. You just went through shit and everything is terrible. 

In Jane’s case, it was the loss of someone she had known her entire life, her dad. No matter what the age, the loss of a parent or family member is heartbreaking. One day you get a phone call. Or someone pulls you out of class. Maybe when you get home, someone is waiting. In this case, an instant message from a prick. Jane would have to plan her father’s funeral, but she does not even have her father’s body, and even if she did, she would have her father’s body

Whether or not her father is actually alive is irrelevant right now. Until she actually meets him, or sees him alive, or learns that Caliborn is a lying fuck, to her, Dad is dead. The only dad she ever had and loved is dead, and she has no idea what to do next.

A million people seem to be convinced solely of the whole “kids and fun” thing, but Jane has not seen her dad in months and for all she knows he is dead, and for most of the other kids, their guardians are actually dead, and they know that because they saw their bloody, lifeless bodies.

Jane is staring at this dusty picture in an empty house, amid unhealthy relationships with those she thought were her best friends, a universe of loneliness, on the day before her birthday thinking, “this is all I have left”. 

The other kids in this timeline mostly grew up on their own, but until recently, Jane had a loving father who wanted nothing but the world for her, and was used to being greeted with a hot meal, encouraging words, and jokes. Her house is empty, she feels alone, and tomorrow is her birthday, a day which her dad definitely made special for her every year. This year is the first time she will spend it without him.

No. No. No you know what? Candy is good. Corn is good. Together they are awful. How did they fuck that one up? Looking at you, candy makers, you mass-producing assholes. I have had good candy corn probably once, but of course nobody sells the good shit. Just the crap that people put in bowls in fall to decorate with, like using fruit as decoration. What do you mean do not eat the decoration fruit? That is fruit. Food. Edible things that you are wasting. Why decorate with fruit if you are not eating that fruit? Additionally, if you have decorative hand towels that are not supposed to be used and no usable hand towels in sight, fuck you too.
