[Mindfang was actually just a historical-person fanfic writer, who died young and never met any of the other ancestors. Vriska and Aranea based their whole self-images on a lie.]

your name is jade.
you have been up for quite a while now. you are prone to sudden bouts of insomnia, but this vexatious restlessness has been plaguing you even more persistently as of late. try as you might, you cannot remember the last time you were able to get a good night’s sleep. not that this revelation comes as a surprise. it is difficult to remember much of anything at all.
a chance glimpse of your clock confirms it is the 13th of april – has been for nearly four hours now, and you are almost certain there was something you needed to do today. a person you wanted to talk to. but there is no one else here except bec.
good dog, you think. best friend.
your name is jade, and you can’t help but feel there is something you’re missing.
Anonymous said: Why all the new rules? What's the point in saying nothing noncanon if it's headcanons???
They’re not new, these were the rules by which we’ve accepted headcanons since I’ve become the main mod here. It’s just easier to eliminate such submissions before they crowd the inbox.
Headcanons by definition fill a possible void in the canon itself. Fanfictions are where canon feelings can be altered, not headcanons. We do not operate with fanfictions, we use headcanons.
Something that happened off screen, like Nepeta’s death for example, is perfect fodder for headcanons. The Ancestor’s lives, for the most part, are left up to interpritation, perfect headcanon material within reason.
It is not, however, headcanon fodder if it’s directly addressed in canon. Like Tavros’s feelings for Gamzee not being romantic, or Karkat being aware of Nepeta’s feelings and being awkward about it. Knowing that, in canon, these feelings exist, there’s little room for headcanons like “Karkat secretly loved Nepeta”. He didn’t, it was addressed in canon that he doesn’t. I put the rules there because I got really, really tired of going through all of the headcanons proclaiming different romantic intentions or feelings towards other characters. Same goes for “headcanons” that directly contradict actions in canon, like saying someone other than Darkleer shot the Signless.
Anything directly contradiction canon tends to be ignored unless the submission states that it’s an alternate timeline headcanon, which could work but are still not entirely free zones.
A good example of alternate timeline headcanons that contradict canon and therefore do not work are anything saying that there’s more than one instance of Gamzee. It is stated in canon that there is only one instance of Gamzee in the entirety of paradox space. No other Gamzees exist, at all.
An example of when alternate timeline headcanons work is interactions between doomed instances. Like the doomed Dream Nepeta and God Tier Karkat interacting or the doomed Daves interacting with doomed John. It helps if the character would actually do these things, too.
Tldr; Headcanons fill a void in canon. Anything directly contradicting canon usually does not get through. There are exceptions with alternate timelines but those must be within canon reasoning and characterization.
[Vriska had a lot of space in her castle which she didn’t use. Many rooms though, were filled with treasure plundered from FLARP. One room in particular was different, however. Vriska could not handle having so many trolls killed to feed her mom with the belief that their lives were otherwise meaningless, that she would take a token from every single one of them, and keep it there. She has one for Aradia, Tavros, and Terezi, due to guilt from harming them. She never missed 1 by the time of SGRUB.]

if this didn’t break your heart then you’re lying to yourself.
wOW OK THANKS FOR THE REMINDER
I HAD FORGOT THIS HAPPENED
[Karkat keeps one of Nepeta’s teapots hidden in his respiteblock. Sometimes he drops little notes that tell her how much he misses her, or how sorry he is, in it]

Came up with this while working on the other thing, so I thought I’d take a break to draw this one out. I know their pre-scratch and post-scratch selves have no memory of the other universe, but that won’t stop me. This has probably been done before anyway.
Fun fact! Did you know Dirk’s bed has a pool ball motif? ………Well I found it interesting…
Oh and Lil Cal is incredibly creepy I’m never drawing him again sorry.
*Can’t stop listening to ‘Do You Remem8er Me’*
Vriska, stop it, I used to hate you.
