DIRTY LOVE (ft. IGGY POP) by KE$HA - all i need is to get in between your sheets / i just want your dirty love
WET BLANKET by METRIC - falling for the creep, the body leech, here he comes / vicious hypnosis, clenched fist, saying it’s wrong to want more than a folk song
CONCRETE WALLS by FEVER RAY - i live between concrete walls / when i took her up she was so warm
BAD HABIT by GREGORY AND THE HAWK - love once got me in the gut / there was no real fight, it tore me up
TUFF GHOST by THE UNICORNS - the tuff ghost disappears for 3 days / the tuff ghost is set in his ways / i don’t want to hurt you [well you can’t cause i’m already dead] / the tuff ghost is invincible, no guts came out when he bled
I DON’T WANT LOVE by THE ANTLERS - you wanna climb up the stairs / i wanna push you back down / but i let you inside / so you can push me around
ME, I’M NOT by NINE INCH NAILS - you’ve got something i need, kinda dangerous / and i’m losing control, i’m not used to this
BLINDNESS by METRIC - send us a blindfold, send us a blade / tell the survivors “help is on the way”

TRACKLIST + LINER NOTES
THE CARPAL TUNNEL OF LOVE by FALL OUT BOY - stomp out this disaster town, you’ll put your eyes to the sun and say ‘i know you’re only blinding to keep back what the clouds are hiding.’ and we might have started singing just a little soon, we’re throwing stones in a glass room. we’re so miserable and stunning. love songs for the genuinely cunning.
THE YEAH YEAH YEAH SONG by THE FLAMING LIPS - because you cannot know yourself or what you’d really do with all your power, what would you do?
DANGEROUS AND SWEET by LENKA - it’s difficult to see from the surface. but everything goes in and it stings, like a spider, hits you deep inside and i know you are just like me.
GHOST OF A GOOD THING by DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL - i guess it’s luck, but it’s the same hard luck you’ve been trying to tame.
ON OR NO by SAINTSENECA - i saw the light and it burned my eyes out, nothing is wrong until you find yourself out.
NEW RESOLUTION by AZURE RAY - follow blind heavy eyes, hold position - right on time, it was a lucky prediction.
COMBAT BABY by METRIC - come back baby, fight off the lethargy, don’t go quietly, combat baby, said you would never give up easy
WONDERLUST by SAINTSENECA - i could never look you in the eyes again. all these things would then begin to rise again.
SURROUNDED (OR SPIRALING) by SILVERSUN PICKUPS - remember when i played assassin? remember when my joking turned grim? remember how we thought if we followed the dots it would stop all the accidents?
A COMING AGE by THE 1900S - all my fears beware of the coming age that i’ve been waiting for with no delay, but i feel so tired, the violence of light has just burned out my eyes.

so i was thinking about promstuck and scourge sisters and
Catie: vriska is so pleased
Catie: terezi thinks she is first to know about vriska’s thong
Catie: she is incorrect
Catie: all of school knows about the thong
Catie: whether they want to or not
Micky: vriska and john spent so many hours picking out that thong
Micky: giggling in the tacky sex shop in the gross part of town
Catie: john still thinks they should have gone for the INSERT COIN HERE [arrow pointing down] number
Catie: but was swayed by the sequins
Micky: (dave steals it when vriska gets changed for phys ed)
Catie: terezi is so resentful of how turned on she is
Catie: can her sex life not include vriska’s underwear for once
i’ve been SO BUSY with college and i have so much reading to do but i said to myself ok i’m gonna give myself ONE HOUR to do a homestuck thing for this special day
UU: it is simple. we are playing a game together.
UU: we have been forced to, for as long as we’ve known each other.
UU: bUt the rUles are complicated, and often shifting. and they don’t always make sense!
here, take my gimmicky artist-pairs cherub fanmix. tracklist and liner notes:
the fratellis vince the lovable stoner // nine inch nails the great destroyer - i hope they cannot see the limitless potential living inside of me to murder everything // animal collective peacebone -[boneface] well i’ve been jumping all over, but my views are slowly shrinking. i was a jugular vein in a juggler’s girl, i was supposedly leaking the most interesting colours // the new pornographers the end of medicine - are we facing the end of all the medicine we’re taking? // regina spektor laughing with - no one laughs at god on the day they realise that the last sight they’ll ever see is a pair of hateful eyes // clap your hands say yeah upon this tidal wave of young blood// AFI the leaving song - all the cracks they lead right to me // nine inch nails god given - now we know we’re right. when his kingdom come and thy will be done we have just begun, we’re the chosen ones [whispered] i would never tell you anything that wasn’t absolutely true that hadn’t come right from his mouth and he wants me to tell you // of montreal chrissie kiss the corpse // the mint chicks ockham’s razor - treat ‘em mean and keep ‘em keen, oh that’s sickening. all the love you’ve ever seen - and you wash it down with gasoline. hide behind the mask you wear when you’re lecherous - do you understand the dreams when you lay upon the mattress? // badly drawn boy born again try to capture reasons why i’m born again, the more i look at it the less that i find. but i won’t bail out, there’ll be a reason for my soul again. another miracle has seasoned my mind // nine inch nails my violent heart there’s bullet holes where my compassion used to be, and there’s violence in my heart // super fun bonus track //

p.s. gamzee is a horrid pisschild with ~0 redeeming qualities and i’m sorry that this is the first homestuck fanmix i’ve finished.
ladystuck iii: ladypocalypse now
Ladystuck, short for the Homestuck Ladyfest Exchange, is an annual New Year’s fic and art exchange celebrating the girls and women of Homestuck. It’s for all those of us who feel that ladies and their relationships with one another are too often neglected—mostly by fandom, but sometimes by canon too. It’s a chance to uncover stories that don’t often get to be told—and to get together, make cool stuff, and celebrate some awesome characters. :>
You can find out more about the challenge here:
Signups are now open, and will remain open until 11:59 PM Chicago time on October 21. We hope to see you there!
If you have any questions or concerns, or need an AO3 invite, please email us (ladystuck at gmail).
Here’s a thing that I do. It would be cool if you would signal boost.
YOOOOO DO THE THING
