APPARENTLY, and it matters A LOT like dude ok I’m going to name my fantroll mary sue and she’s going to hook up with sollux end of story and her typing quirk will be tildes and hearts at the end of every sentence

a webcomic about these kids that play a computer game with trolls or something and it could/does (???) end the world. I’m not ENTIRELY sure but I think that’s a summation? maybe
porygons said: Who the fuck would be getting mad at you about that though like you don’t read homestuck so how would that be a thing that you know
not mat at, but implying my sheer stupidity. it’s a long story, but basically someone was trying to make me feel better and was all “at least you’re not THIS stupid!!” and I was all “wow thanks” and then…..it degraded
like I’m not actually very sorry for not knowing much about a fandom that I’m not part of
I’m mostly just being petty and irritated
I know sollux is a super psychic hottie though!!!!
yeah the six letters thing is what I didn’t know and I’m apparently pretty fucking dumb for not
according to someone who dated a homestuck
ok legitimate question how many people NOT IN homestuck fandom can tell me the specifics/rules of naming conventions for trolls
is this actually common
I’m being told it is and I’m an idiot for not knowing
like if you for shits made a fan troll idk
