Rose Lalonde Vs. Her Shadow

  • ▼: Hello.
  • ▲: Hello.
  • ▼: Rose.
  • ▼: Finally.
  • ▲: Well.
  • ▼: I've found you.
  • ▼: I thought I'd never find you.
  • ▲: It's nice to know that I'm so fond of myself.
  • ▲: Or are you me?
  • ▼: You left me behind.
  • ▼: It was terrifying.
  • ▲: What might be your name?
  • ▼: I...
  • ▼: I haven't really given myself one.
  • ▲: Well then, what are you, seeing as you seem to be a separate entity from myself.
  • ▼: I'm your shadow.
  • ▼: I may be a separate entity now.
  • ▲: Well.
  • ▼: I don't think I'm supposed to be.
  • ▲: That's a bit Peter Pan for my tastes,
  • ▲: Do I sew you back on?
  • ▼: I don't know.
  • ▼: I guess you could try.
  • ▼: That sounds kind of painful for both of us, though.
  • ▲: It was a joke.
  • ▲: Where did I lose you?
  • ▼: I apologize, after the terror of separation I'm not much in the mood for jokes.
  • ▲: No, I apologize. I shouldn't joke around with a traumatized existential quandary anyway.
  • ▲: In any case do you even remember where you were lost? I hadn't realized you were gone.
  • ▼: It was just the next moment you were gone.
  • ▼: Though, evidently, you didn't notice me missing.
  • ▼: Not sure how to feel about that.
  • ▲: Well, I'm not exactly constantly looking at you. A shadow is primarily seen by others.
  • ▲: Please, try not to take it as an insult.
  • ▼: I'll try not to.
  • ▲: How long have you wandered?
  • ▼: I don't know.
  • ▼: Since the sun was low.
  • ▼: It went high and then low again.
  • ▲: So a night and a day, roughly.
  • ▼: No.
  • ▼: There's no way I could survive nightfall.
  • ▲: Oh. I get it.
  • ▲: You didn't get lost until I entered the meteor.
  • ▲: The sun rising and leaving was us moving away and toward the green sun.
  • ▲: The reason you haven't dissipated is because of the constant light here.
  • ▼: Is that it? Time isn't easy for me.
  • ▼: I thought it could not have been more than a day.
  • ▼: Because there has been no nightfall.
  • ▲: It could easily have been weeks.
  • ▼: I feel sick.
  • ▲: Sit down, if you're capable of it.
  • ▲: I need to ask you some things before I feel comfortable initiating the procedure that could rejoin us.
  • ▼: Um. All right.
  • ▲: Are you comfortable with losing all individual thought? If you can't remember anything before separating, it likely means that you're consciousness was created as a means to get you back to me, and would likely be destroyed once we are rejoined.
  • ▼: I remember things before separating.
  • ▲: Ah. Good.
  • ▼: I remember everything.
  • ▲: All of my memories? Child, you weren't present during many of them.
  • ▲: How can a shadow remember something in the dead of night, for example.
  • ▼: I believe I have been cognizant for longer than you have.
  • ▼: I may not remember the dead of night.
  • ▼: But I remember arriving on a meteor.
  • ▲: Ooh. This is promising. I apologize for calling you child, as it now seems that you are the elder.
  • ▼: I remember John's gloves.
  • ▲: One more question before I begin the process.
  • ▼: Yes?

…yep.


  • ▲: HELLO.
  • ▼: 2up.
  • ▲: PSIIONIIC?
  • ▼: 2iignle22?

  • ▼: then demand hiim iin theiir red quadrant2.
  • ▲: THAT IS VERY STRANGE.
  • ▲: I BELIEVE I HAVE MANAGED TO FIND MY DESCENDANT. HE IS VERY UNHAPPY HE WAS EVER SPAWNED.
  • ▲: I FEEL TERRIBLE FOR INFLICTING BEING MY DESCENDANT ON ANOTHER LIVING BEING.
  • ▼: 2iignle22, don't talk liike that.
  • ▼: 2urely he wiill be great, liike you were.
  • ▲: DOESN'T SEEM THAT WAY.
  • ▲: IN FACT HE SEEMS WORSE THAN I WAS AT HIS AGE.

  • ▲: ARE YOU SURE?
  • ▼: ..Po2iitiive!
  • ▲: AH. WELL, I AM SURE YOU WILL TELL ME ABOUT IT EVENTUALLY.

  • ▼: My de2cendant u2ed iit whiile talkiing about your2.
  • ▲: OH, I SEE.
  • ▲: IT IS STRANGE THAT THEY WOULD MEET.
  • ▼: Almo2t iironiic.
  • ▲: THOUGH I WOULD PREFER THAT YOU WOULD TELL ME THINGS THAT ARE BOTHERING YOU.
  • ▲: EVEN VERY BAD THINGS.
  • ▲: LIKE THE THING YOU ARE HIDING FROM ME RIGHT NOW.
  • ▼: Ii am not hiidiing anythiing!
  • ▲: ...
  • ▲: I KNOW THAT IS NOT TRUE.
  • ▼: Ii don't under2tand why you thiink 2omethiing ii2 wrong, becau2e nothiing ii2 wrong!
  • ▲: BECAUSE YOU TALK LIKE THIS WHEN SOMETHING IS WRONG.
  • ▲: "AT THE MOMENT FAIRLY WELL" IS YOUR TYPICAL "SERIOUS SHIT IS ACTUALLY GOING DOWN, DON'T MIND ME" PHRASE
  • ▼: 2weet god iit2 nothiing!
  • ▲: UH HUH.
  • ▲: KNOWING YOU IT'S PROBABLY AN ENORMOUS METEOR THAT'S GOING TO KILL US ALL IN ABOUT FIFTEEN MINUTES.
  • ▲: OR SOMETHING TO THAT EFFECT.
  • ▼: You are actiing exactly liike your de2cendant at the moment 2iignle22!
  • ▼: NOTHIING. II2. WRONG.
  • ▲: WHATEVER YOU SAY.
  • ▲: WHAT IS THE SAYING
  • ▲: THE SPORES DO NOT DRIFT FAR FROM THE LAND FRONDS?
  • ▲: EITHER WAY.
  • ▼: Oh great,
  • ▼: Now you're beiing all pa22iive agre22ive.
  • ▲: WELL I APOLOGIZE.
  • ▲: PERHAPS COMING TO TERMS WITH ONE'S IMMINENT EARLY DEATH WAS NOT A GOOD SUBJECT FOR MEDITATION TODAY...
  • ▼: Waiit what?!
  • ▲: I AM NOT IN THE BEST OF MOODS...
  • ▼: Oh, what2 wrong?
  • ▲: IMMINENT EARLY DEATH IS NOT ENOUGH?
  • ▼: Riight. 2orry, ii'm ju2t...out of iit twoday.
  • ▲: I WOULD ASK IF YOU ARE ALL RIGHT BUT YOU WOULD BE ANNOYED BY THAT
  • ▼: Ii've ju2t been feeliing...gro22ly, the2e pa2t few day2.
  • ▲: GROSSLY?
  • ▲: TOO MUCH
  • ▲: OR TOO DISGUSTING?
  • ▼: Ju2t...
  • ▼: That 2iinkiing feeliing that ii get when "2hiit2 goiing to hiit the fan".
  • ▲: SO THERE IS IN FACT SHIT HITTING THE FAN, YOU ARE JUST UNABLE TO ELABORATE BECAUSE YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT THAT SHIT IS YET.
  • ▼: Ba2iically.
  • ▲: I SEE.
  • ▲: I KNOW THAT DESPITE GAINING FRIENDS WE ARE BECOMING MORE AND MORE OF A NOTICEABLE NUISANCE TO AUTHORITIES
  • ▲: ...AND I AM NOT GETTING ANY LESS ARTHRITIC.
  • ▲: SO.

  • ▲: YOU CAN FLEE WHENEVER YOU LIKE.
  • ▼: 2iignle22.
  • ▼: You know ii wouldn't flee.
  • ▲: YES AND THAT IS YOUR PROBLEM.
  • ▲: ANYONE WITH HALF A THINKPAN WOULD, AND YOU MANAGE TO HAVE TWO. PERHAPS THEY ARE DISRUPTING EACH OTHER SOMEHOW.
  • ▲: I DON'T KNOW.
  • ▼: Or perhap2 iit2 the fact you're my clo2e2t friiend dii2rupt2 that factor a2 well?
  • ▲: YES, I OUGHT TO STOP THAT
  • ▼: Oh hu2h. You're beiing iin2ufferable. Agaiin.
  • ▲: IT IS A TALENT OF MINE, YES.
  • ▼: Haha.
  • ▲: BUT DO PROMISE ME WHEN WE FINALLY HAVE TO FLEE IN DAYLIGHT AND I CAN'T GET UP THAT YOU'LL LEAVE ME AND DON'T ATTEMPT TO CARRY ME.
  • ▲: IT WOULD SLOW YOU DOWN AND THE INDIGNITY WOULD BE TOO MUCH.
  • ▼: Ii wiill make no 2uch promi2e2.

  • ▲: FUCK YOU
  • ▲: ...IT'S STILL FULL DARK AND I'M ALREADY TIRED.

  • ▼: One troll cannot do iit all, and 2tiill 2leep.
  • ▲: DOING IT ALL IS NOT THE PROBLEM
  • ▲: THE PROBLEM IS WHEN IT STOPS YOU FROM TRYING TO DO SO.
  • ▼: 2iignle22, you need 2leep.
  • ▼: Even ii 2leep once iin a blue moon.
  • ▲: ...
  • ▲: WELL

  • ▼: everyone
  • ▼: i went to all the planets
  • ▼: and i went to prospit and i even went to derse
  • ▲: what happened
  • ▼: and skaia
  • ▼: they're all dead
  • ▲: i mean this is important if it could happen to us
  • ▼: everyone's dead dave
  • ▲: doomed timelines suck a million kinds of balls I know
  • ▼: the incipisphere is just corpses now
  • ▲: John what the fuck happened
  • ▼: some kind of
  • ▼: i don't know
  • ▲: and how do we ovoid it
  • ▼: noise... thing
  • ▼: i heard it but for some reason i didn't just drop dead with all my brains turned to jelly
  • ▼: it leaks out their ears
  • ▼: only carapaces don't have ears so
  • ▼: it kind of leaked out their eyes?
  • ▲: jeesus john
  • ▲: it sounds like you've seen some freaky shit
  • ▼: i wasn't there to see what happened
  • ▼: i don't even know
  • ▼: i didn't have to be there, it just... everything just kind of died
  • ▼: but i didn't because of got tigers?!?
  • ▲: everyone is ok over here just so you know like, multiple daves are ok
  • ▼: whatever that means
  • ▼: the spider troll was going to tell me but then she died too
  • ▲: i have no fucking clue what that means dude
  • ▼: well you know about as much as me then!
  • ▲: but I am unironically sorry for you
  • ▼: like i've just been on this site all day because there's just nothing else to do
  • ▼: and even this is really depressing
  • ▲: being in a doomed timeline makes you realize all sorts of shit about yourself
  • ▲: i was lucky to at least be able to get out of mine
  • ▼: what do I do?
  • ▲: can you still win the game?
  • ▲: sorry that was the sprite in me
  • ▲: fuck the game
  • ▼: i don't know if it would be worth winning if i could
  • ▲: well apparently you get to make a new universe if you do
  • ▲: and you get to go live in it
  • ▲: youd probably make everyone look like nic cage
  • ▼: probably
  • ▼: i guess a universe where everyone is nic cage is better than a universe with just corpses that aren't
  • ▲: you can do whatever you want with your universe
  • ▲: it's pretty much built to make a universe from your subconscious desires
  • ▲: total fucking paradise
  • ▼: how do i know if i can still win?
  • ▼: at this point anywhere is better than here
  • ▲: did everyone prototype a sprite?
  • ▼: i think so
  • ▲: did you guys fuck up like we did and prototype jades devilbeast
  • ▼: jade prototyped her poppop
  • ▲: huh are the sprites dead too
  • ▼: everyone is dead
  • ▲: i dint even know that could happen
  • ▼: what part of everyone do you not understand
  • ▲: sorry John
  • ▲: I'm not even calling you Egbert or something dumb
  • ▲: im really sorry
  • ▼: i'm not even going to ask why that would be dumb because that's actually my name
  • ▼: this is just
  • ▼: i don't know
  • ▲: Look in any case your game is still winnable
  • ▲: you can still get out of here
  • ▼: how
  • ▲: you have to defeat the black king and breed a lot of frogs
  • ▲: thats it basically
  • ▼: the black king is dead
  • ▼: all the frogs are dead
  • ▲: oh right
  • ▼: so many frogs
  • ▲: shit you can't clone more frogs?
  • ▼: i don't know ok
  • ▼: maybe?
  • ▼: i've kind of been eating them
  • ▲: gross
  • ▼: hey french people do it
  • ▲: I'd try cloning them and seeing if it works
  • ▲: maybe you can even clone some people
  • ▼: whenever i tried to clone people i just got more dead people
  • ▼: i'm not even sure how that works
  • ▲: well you managed to make it work over here
  • ▲: just keep trying
  • ▲: i thought everyone was permanently dead in my session for about two weeks
  • ▲: the it turns around I get to screw around with time
  • ▲: {{*then it turns out}}
  • ▲: {{stupid auto correct}}
  • ▼: all i can do is the windy thing
  • ▼: not sure how that's actually helpful here
  • ▲: just keep trying with the ecto shit
  • ▲: over here you managed to create all of us apparently
  • ▼: oh yeah i already did that
  • ▼: but the thing is maybe because i already did it once i can't do it again?
  • ▲: oh
  • ▲: well shit
  • ▲: have you tried with the frogs
  • ▼: no, like i said i was eating them
  • ▼: they're actually kind of good
  • ▼: better than all that cake anyway
  • ▲: well stop moping and go try the frogs
  • ▲: theres still shit to be done
  • ▼: so breed a ton of frogs and defeat the black king
  • ▼: how do you defeat someone who's already dead?
  • ▲: I guess just find his septre thing then
  • ▲: ((brb))
  • ▲: ((ok back))
  • ▼: i have the scepter
  • ▲: ok good
  • ▲: now go breed a shit ton of frogs
  • ▲: were kinda doing this out of order but whatever
  • ▲: it will still work
  • ▼: i have these rings too
  • ▼: they're kind of freaky
  • ▲: wait. rings? as in pleural?
  • ▼: yeah
  • ▼: there are two
  • ▼: and they're kind of identical
  • ▲: there's only supposed to be one
  • ▲: im pretty sure at least
  • ▼: really?
  • ▲: the king has his scepter and the queen has her ring
  • ▼: yeah
  • ▲: theres only supposed to be one ring
  • ▼: there are two queens
  • ▼: so two rings
  • ▼: i also have a bunch of other jewelry but they don't do any magic or anything
  • ▲: ((oh my god I fail Homestuck forever))
  • ▲: ((ahhhh))
  • ▼: i kind of looted a whole bunch of corpses
