hey i know i havent actively participated in the homestuck fandom in uhhhhh real measurable years but what if trolls have beauty standards of perfectly grey skin. any shade of grey, as long as NO blood color shows through. counter culture trolls specifically wearing blush and eye make up of their color.
TC: all my life i believed at a fuckin paradise to come what held the most baller, darkest of carnivals to join.
TC: AND A PROPHECY
TC: to tell all about a band of rowdy and capricious minstrels steeped in the good harshwhimsy.
TC: THE MIRTHFUL MESSIAHS WERE FORETOLD TO BE CRASHING THAT FUCKING PIE STAND AND BRING THE HOLY RUCKUS.
Day three of Gamzee Week is Clown themed! So obvs the thing to do is FLIP MY SHIT and take a cannonball into the deep end of clown religion because THAT’S MY JAM.
I just realized that finding makeup would be a pain in the ass in the star wars universe
“fuck, I found this foundation in my shade of pink, but it’s for a different skin type, WAY too oily for me”
“why does everyone insist that mascara is the best thing since sliced bread? MY SPECIES DOESN’T HAVE EYELASHES”
“why is makeup humanocentric, not everyone is a different shade of beige dammit”

*angry togruta yelling as they try to keep their foundation off of their skin markings*
“This foundation is gray but it’s warm gray, fuck”

Water-based species shopping abroad: “This is not water-proof. I tried.”
Mixed species people living “abroad” and finally visiting their species home planet as an adult just to discover they had NO IDEA what their peoples beauty standards are and they’ve been doing their makeup to human standards this whole time. “Wait, you mean I’m not supposed to highlight the markings on my arms and chest? That’s hella vulgar?? I’ve been essentially walking around naked with arrows pointed to my cooch this whole time???”
