have you ever had glitter or sand thrown at you and got it all in your gills?
Anonymous

Uhh, not in the oddly spe—cifi-c way you suggested, but.

See, here’s the thing about gills. They are pretty much totally sealed shut if you’re on the surfa—ce. The mus—cle basi—caly shuts down, be—comes involuntary. You might get stuff on the protective frill over the —casing, but it won’t, you know, get in your gills. (You’d have to pry them open to do that, and the thought alone of that was painful. Typing that was painful. Eughhh.)

However, when you’re underwater, they open up, and be—come more —controllable. You —can open and —close them in a somewhat limited fashion however you please (closing them underwater would be part of holding your breath, basi—cally). So if you have bad timing when it —comes to holding your breath, and you’re swimming in a shallow, sandy area… You might wind up with a problem.

I’ve definitely had to deal with that dis—comfort before. Most seadwellers do it at some point when they’re really young. The worst that happens usually, though, is that you —cough it ba—ck out again. Obviously, in polluted waters or —certain dangerous kinds of debris worse things —can happen, but that goes for breathing on the surfa—ce too.

have you ever forgotten to speak to someone or just forgot about someone completely?

Yeah, unfortunately. I have.

I oftentimes get so —caught up in my s—chool work or whatever other dramati—c shit is taking up my headspa—ce that I forget to keep in tou—ch with almost everyone. A lot of the friends I had a year ago I no longer have now be—cause of this. It was espe—cially bad ba—ck in the days when I valued a—cademi-c su-c-cess over personal relationships. I don’t know why the friends I have now are so willing to wait around for me, but I’m thankful that they are.


II have an argument for that

I know you do, Sparks. I know you do.


that doe2n’t work for u2, we’re 2iigniifiigant two the uniiver2e becau2e we made the fuckiing thiing

Yeah, but me, I’m totally just a useless meat sa—ck floating around on a giant pointless spa—ce ro—ck looking for validation.

I don’t know what you’re doing with the spaces there but my voice to text is having conniptions.  While nothing can compare to the horror that is tumblr user 7r1ck573r5 ‘s typing style, I’m afraid you’ve made top twenty.  Congrats.

At any rate, I’m Rose and from what I could gather you’re a highblooded Vantas?

Oh, they’re before every “c”, to make a sickle-scythe. I’ll come up off it, though, if you’re using voice-to-text.

Technically I’m a Peixes, but going off of what you’re probably used to, yeah. I’m a Tyrian-blooded Vantas. Most people really do call me Pinkat though, that wasn’t even a joke.

Nice to meet you, Rose.

At this rate the Karkats may just outrank the Daves and both factions are at least twenty strong according to my follower’s list.

Be strong, soldier.  This battle is not yet won.

Oh, see, I’m not like those other Karkats. I am a spe—cial, shiny, low-en—counter-rate Karkat. I’m in a fa—ction of my own; that of divergent pink Karkats who also are fish. Pinkat(s), if you will. I’m a demographi—c in and of myself.

have you ever thought about how vast the universe is and how insignificant your portion of it is because the only thing that sentient beings count on for validation is the opinions of other sentient beings

Yes.

Often and without prompting.

Yeah, we talk to a lot of the same —crowd.

Hey, Dee. I’m Karkat Peixes, better known as Pinkat. But you probably knew that, too.

Oh, I’m not up to anything mu—ch. In —class, se—cretly texting, nursing s—choolwork (it may as well be in hospi—ce by now with the amount of hope I’ve got for it’s —completion) and generally keeping my head low. How about you?
