I was there that night and fully appreciated the cold equations made necessary when meeting this many people, especially since I was one of the last people in line. In fact, when I told Hank it was a great show, he said thanks and, pausing in his hanklerfishering, said “I barely remember it. I wish I’d blogged about it before the signing.” (It HAD been over three hours at this point)
Still, I did hand John a folded up piece of paper, saying that I had a message for them. He took it and said “Thank you, we appreciate it”, understandably not opening it. Though, if he had, he would have seen that the message itself contained only a single word:

Yeah, it’s pretty stupid, but it was in re this post by Vondell Swain, and I couldn’t think of anything NOT stupid to give them.
So now I have a very thoroughly signed edition of TFIOS, and my sister had her guitar signed. Plus, free posters! Oh, and the show was fantastic. All in all, it was a very good time.
There was a lost girl walking down the street, saw something shining right in front of her feet, picked it up in her hands a silver dime, she looked around, and was 50 years back in time.
She wandered the streets not sure what to do, traded the dime for some thing to chew. Later that day the old shopkeeper was counting his change, when he noticed something strange.. In his hands a silver dime, and he had traveled back 50 years in time.
He found himself in the same shop but with his young father, learning the trade from Great Mr. Strother. The old man was scared grabbed his heart passed out on the floor, and soon his young dad discovered the man was a corpse. He was buried as a “John Doe” with the silver dime, because that is all that was on him at the time.
Because this loss we had a gain, no more lives being left behind,
and the silver dime would never have anyone else to find.
Since this is an ART blog and not just a drawing blog, I thought I’d share something else of my creation. I did this cover with a friend of my mother’s - John; He’s a rad pianist and has an amazing recording studio as half of his house. The recording was completely spontaneous, and only took a few takes to bring it to its current state. It’s amazing I could sing alright, considering I had the most insane allergies that whole time; I was just sniffing and sneezing up a storm. We worked well together, and it was an exciting experience, as nervous as I was singing in front of somebody. John gave me a rock. It gave me confidence. Ahaha. This was done this past summer; My voice is a lot different now. I’ve recently done a showcase with my drama class where I’ve performed a song. I’ll be soon to get that video up here too! It’s very different from this one in terms of style; I’m not sure which I like more. Anyways! Enjoy. <3
this is one of the most quality blogs i have found in a long time. come for the sweet homestuck (and other) art, stay for the awesome singing. rage with jealousy that this girl is sixteen, etc. etc.
So I was sitting there reading An Imperial Affliction while listening to The Hectic Glow, and there’s a point in chapter 7 where the words match up exactly with THG’s parody song, “Hoggs Bison,” during the bridge. MIND: BLOWN.
