my favourite trollhaus story is still the gay gravedigger tavros saga though because vriska is still the best sim
Tavros has an npc clone who lives in a really shitty 2-room apartment, works in the mortuary, and is married to some random guy named Antonio or something. I don’t remember what his actual name was, just that it was something Spanish. (There is another clone who is identical in every way except for the fact that he somehow has like 5 girlfriends who are all super in love with him, who I call Rufio, but he is irrelevant to this story.)
I was alerted to Gay Gravedigger Tavros’ existence when he lit his fucking house on fire and Aradia and Equius had to save him. Aradia stuck around a while afterwards and made friends with him, then left and never talked to him again. Fast forward to what would be like a year later Sims time, he invited everyone over to his house for a party. No one had anything better to do because by then I was raking in big $$$$ and work was basically voluntary, so I RSVPed for everyone.
Nobody went autonomously except for Vriska, who was a complete stranger to him. Nobody else was at the party either, not even his own husband. He welcomed her in and she laughed at him. Then she went into his kitchen and ate his food. Then she DETONATED HIS ONLY COUCH AND THE ONLY PASSABLE PIECE OF FURNITURE HE OWNED, leaving a smoking mess of debris that was not cleaned up for days.
He mourned, but she was allowed to keep ruining things in his house until she left of her own accord. On her way out he tried to make a friendly gesture, which she denied, and then insulted him about the sorry state of his home.
After she walked out I got a notification from GGT about Vriska thanking her for coming to his party.
EDIT: SHE ALSO RUMMAGED THROUGH HIS GARBAGE BIN AFTERWARDS LIKE A RACCOON?? I almost forgot this
askallyjollychristmas asked you: I know I brought it up in conversation but here’s an ask to make it all official like: Canadian bootleg trolls in Christmas sweaters.
tavros will, in time, learn to hate winter holidays like the rest of them, once he starts associating it with getting beaten up
merry christmas everyone
acrylicemulator asked you: Would you ever consider drawing derpbent Tavros and his lusus? I’d love to see them together.
I'm super interested in Derpebent Tavros's ancestor! Think you could give any info?
this with tavhorns is what he looks up to as an idol. sorry to disappoint but the ancestors are very similar to canon ancestors of the same blood colour, they just look like their new descendants and have expanded backstories.
dualscar is not remembered for who he was but how he died (fuckin landdwwellers) so most of what people *think* he was like is mostly made up and probably dripping propaganda everywhere. he was an admiral (maybe the title of commodore would be more appropriate? i don’t know navy terms very well sorry) and a lusus hunter but he wasn’t particularly notable or unique. banging mindfang the notorious pirate queen and getting executed on a whim weren’t even that unusual either, it’s just that by the point he died all the seadwellers were just fucking sick of the grand highblood running the show so dualscar got used as an example of abuse of power a lot and turned into a bit of a cult hero of sorts along the way.
kanaya at least knows he’s actually kind of average-to-lame because she has mindfang’s journal, but has avoided crushing tavros’ dreams so far. might be because she’s nice enough not to, but more likely because not holding her tongue would get her in hot water with somebody else who wouldn’t approve. (not to say that she hasn’t gossiped about it to select other people—which definitely includes sollux—because she totally has. she’s just never corrected Blatant Historical Inaccuracies to his face.)
Anonymous asked you:
So I remember you drew a picture of bloodbent Tavros and Sollux messing around with trains (at least I think you drew it?? it could have been fanart I guess) that I liked yet I can’t find it anywhere. Does it exist or did I imagine it in a fever dream?
no that’s def a real thing
i’ve seen this thing being passed around on tumblr like 3 different times and it’s never been sourced so now i am sourcing it the source is me from about half a year ago (!!)
tav you’re doing it wrong
streaming the middle people tomorrow/later today with bonus sufferer, i’ll make a post about that before i start
Anonymous asked you: What if I asked you for Tavros♦Sollux? I kind of flipped my shit when you said it was in Derpbent because it has been my guilty pleasure ship forever :x
what indeed (answer: nothing, it will get like 20 notes and then be lost in the ether)
i’m guessing you mean this and not regular canon because outside of that au it makes literally no sense whatsoever and as far as i know only like one or two people in the world even thought of it (ARE YOU ONE OF THOSE TWO PEOPLE ANON I KNOW WHO THEY ARE…). i mean prior to that adventure it never even crossed my mind and i am the shipwright of a bunch of weird shit.
if not whoops i hope the canadian bootleg version is still ok??
also i guess this means i’m probably going to do requests, this was just the first thing in my inbox after that post. and i did it because i’m not exactly sure but i think it would be unfair to everyone else if i stopped at the first one.
i am lazy so i am going to post what i said on my sburbchan thread about this stupid bloodswap (it is the same character order as in canon but rotated -120 degrees on the wheel) that won’t leave me alone:
i barfed this sketchy lineup up because people seemed to be curious about it and now that i think about it i don’t think i’ve posted anything showing anyone’s legs. equius and feferi have hats and aradia has kabuki-like face paint i didn’t bother to draw. what eridan’s shirt looks like is also still kind of up in the air; some people say they don’t like the polo and that it would look better as a button-down, but i’m not sure.
for serious i think i am going to start this mid-april; i’d have it sooner but exams and shit are making me put it off, and i still don’t have a drawing style i’m set on using. but i think i might want to do something in a similar vein to this lineup—purposely messy muted colours with this cool new ink brush i made accidentally a few days ago, not as messy as this though obviously. more to the tune of this derpy fantroll picture i did for a bro i guess. it is really fast and easy to work with which are major plusses, but on the negative side it’s pretty far removed from the source material’s style. i did think of a possible explanation for that (nepeta is illustrating it, and another character, terezi probably, might be writing) which would be cool in a sense that it would be an adventure told by a possibly unreliable narrator, but i don’t know. if i do decide on that i assure you i’m not going to use quirks in narration because that would be fucking horrible.
IS THIS A COOL THING I SHOULD DO?? opinions tumblr i want em
