Hey tumblr, I need help! Cassie Simkins, my step sister, has gone missing from her home in the middle of the night (a day or so ago). We have reason to believe she is NOT with someone safe and she is also epileptic and does not have her necessary medications. She’s from the Rockwell City area in Iowa but it’s been over a day so they may be further away.

She’s also been using a fake account on fb to communicate with friends under different names.

EDIT: The person she is with is considered dangerous, please be careful.

If anyone has information or sees her, please contact her father Jeff Simkins immediately at 712-830-3145

These are pictures of the guy we believe took off with her. He’s dangerous (stole a weapon from someone’s home), so please be careful around him!

UPDATE: Two people that fit the descriptions of Cassie, as well as the guy we believe she’s with, were spotted around the east of Carrol (Iowa) yesterday evening (August 30th) and were spotted by vendors in Dayton (also Iowa).

Thanks for all the reblogs so far guys, keep it up!

Signal boost ;A;

More Information, this is real





No seriously though. I’m referring to the majority of the cosplayers there that blocked the ballroom, screamed during the meetups, smeared gray everywhere, and didn’t clean up after their mess. You guys made the rest of us look horrible, even when respectfully asked to discontinue your game of spin the bottle, you guys could not stop. Fantastic! So here’s how the non-homestucks on the Sacanime page have seen it. 

Now you could argue that “oh don’t pick on the Homestuck fandom, we’re nice :(((” No. You were the only ones that caused trouble during the con and the staff had given up on even trying to stop since you wouldn’t listen.

Prayers out there for the good Homestucks that were so badly represented though, I respect you guys, thanks for cleaning up the mess that the big part of the fandom left for us to pick up. Bless you all. 

Here’s a prime example of the problem with the Homestuck fandom as it currently is. I speak here as someone who is entrenched so deeply in Homestuck I doubt I’ll ever be able to not call myself a fan, so trust me, I understand that there are people who don’t go around making fools of themselves in the fandom. The issue with the Homestuck fandom as a whole is that there is such a large part of the fanbase that is composed of kids who range from thirteen years old to sixteen. I have nothing against kids of that age group—hell, I was one three years ago—but a lot of them still have a very long way to go when it comes to maturity.

The thing is, most of the characters in Homestuck are assholes in one way or another. At the very least, most of them behave like assholes at one time or another. As a Homestuck, I can say that in the comic itself they are mostly very loveable assholes who tend to redeem themselves at least enough so you can shrug and not be all that bothered by their behaviors. But to someone who is younger and has yet to mature enough to understand that the following train of thought is utter dreck, i.e., people who are thirteen to sixteen years old, if you’re cosplaying someone who kind of acts like an asshole, it must be totally okay to run around acting like a total asshole because of course you’re just acting in character. And sure, wanting to be in character isn’t necessarily a bad thing. But it’s all about how far you take it.

To the younger Homestucks who somehow miraculously manage to see this post, because I won’t even begin to pretend I have all that many followers to distribute this to any kind of larger audience, it’s incredibly important that you not take the canon behaviors of characters you’re cosplaying as an excuse to act in a way that is rude, offensive, or otherwise asinine, especially at cons. Be considerate of your fellow con-goers, clean up after yourselves, and if you accidentally smear body paint on someone, apologize profusely. (Better yet, seal your body paint properly. Youtube is one hell of a site.)

Again. Repeat after me. Cosplaying as an asshole is NOT an excuse to act like one. If you can remember that, you’ll have a much more positive experience in your Homestuck cosplay anywhere you go, whether it’s at a con or not. And so will everyone else.

Giving this a Homestuck fandom boost







Hi guys! I wanted to inform you about this great thing that is happening!

These smart fellows have devised a way to create cups, straws, mixers, etc that can detect common date rape drugs. This is an amazing idea and it needs funding! The campaign ends in 35 hours and they are a little short on funding. Please, signal boost this or even give a dollar if you can, it’s a great cause and something that will really change the world!


Only 28 hours left! Check this out and spread the word!

donate or signal boost, they still have about a fifth to go!



Hey! This is pretty awesome, so I thought I’d share here. Even if you can’t donate, signal boosting the fuck out of this is important!

The only thing feferi does in the comic is be annoying and worry about boys (she did sorrta help out with the dream bubbles but that was just one thing)



I didn’t know that a female character, who’s strength and ability to end an unhealthy relationship, that managed to inspire and help many women (myself included) deal with and even end their own unhealthy/abusive relationships can be boiled down to doing nothing but being ‘annoying’.
Not to mention, she worried equally for all of her teammates in the session, she canonically even states that she felt pale for everyone in said session. 
Dating a boy does not automatically mean a girl cares about nothing else, and certainly doesn’t mean that all she did was exist to date said boy.
Feferi, for a character who was (sadly) given a very brief bit of air time in the comic, accomplished and did a lot, especially for a character that has been labeled as a secondary/background character.

Honestly for a character everyone reduces to a ‘background’ status, she’s done more than a lot of the characters people don’t consider background characters, (I leave dealing with that fanon misogynistic dribble up for another day tho).
You are also conveniently and entirely ignoring the canonical friendship she had with Kanaya Maryam, the kinship she was stated to have with Vriska Serket, the times she worried for and helped Jade Harley (even in death), and the support she offered Roxy Lalonde whilst stuck in a sprite (which Feferi was put into against her will/without her explicit permission might I add), along with the friendship she holds with Nepeta Leijon even after said sprite explodes and gives them their own separate bodies back.

Furthermore, whilst she was still moirails with Eridan Ampora, despite him making her absolutely miserable and not doing jackshit to be a proper moirail for her, she kept him from legitimately attempting to commit genocide on an entire group of their species.
All people she didn’t know, all people who were not just ~boys~, but she was still more than willing to look after them because she believed it was her responsibility as the Heiress.
Also, when she created the dream bubbles, she created them so everyone, not just some boy she dated, would be able to have some place to go after dying. She created them so everyone would get a chance at being safe and/or enjoying the afterlife.
That is not just ‘worrying about boys’.

Oh, and btw, her creating the dream bubbles pretty much made all of Act 6 possible, since the majority of the act has largely involved the dream bubbles and persons from the dream bubbles.
All of that, and the fact that the longest act in the entire comic was made possible because of her, is more than enough to prove your comment was entirely, well, false.
I believe you should sit down and take a second to realize that not only does that make her pretty damn important, but also makes you look like even more of a massive dick than you already did.
