How do you "look"?


This is long overdue but: In light of Terezi's method of "seeing", I'm putting together a list of the people she knows and the colours/smells she associates with them. Therefore, please could you fill in the below for your character/s?

List of hex codes for colours can be found here and explanation of the form:

Character Name: Self-explanatory
Associated colour: The main colour that would be associated with your colour. Obviously this will be more obvious for some than for others but basically think along the lines of: if someone were to look at your character, what colour or colours would leap out?
Associated smell/s and taste/s: This should tie into the associated colour, although it can factor in things that the character would smell off. But effectively this will be the smell/taste that Terezi will associate with your character.

Translation: Terezi types in teal font. She types all in capitals and replaces certain letters (a, e and i) with the numerals of the blind prophets (4, 3 and 1 respectively)

This, obviously, may not be to everyone's taste. Therefore, if you would prefer Terezi didn't use text with your character/s, drop me a comment here and I'll make sure she sticks to video or voice.

How do you smell?
Terezi "sees" by scent and taste, usually drawn from colours. For example, she describes Sollux as Mr Appleberry Blast because of his red and blue association but describes his text as mustard. If there are any colours/scents you want associated with your character for Terezi, let me know otherwise she'll make something up.

Also: Terezi can literally smell lies. As she explains to Dave here, lies have their own subtle odour which, as the lies pile up, Terezi can pick up on. Therefore, if you're happy for Terezi to know when your character's lying, let me know otherwise I will run it on a case by case basis.

Discussion post for hive o'trolls and who's living where.

Current Hive o'Trolls
- Terezi
- Nepeta
- Equius
- Karkat

Please to note
- Who would definitely want to stick with who
- Who would refuse to live with who

From Terezi's perspective
Having everyone currently on board in either the same place or as close to same place as possible would be the ideal. Moving is a good idea in case Empress has a fix on them, plus they're going to need a bigger boathive!

Character name: Terezi Pyrope
Character journal: [personal profile] thoughtandflow
Fandom: Homestuck
Timeline: Act 6 Intermission 2, after the conversation with Aranea

Updates: After killing Vriska, which is the last Terezi remembers, she is joined on the roof by Karkat (who had been tricked into going there by Gamzee), Kanaya and Sollux - the only trolls still remaining, as far as they knew. With Gamzee already there, it appeared there would be yet more fighting and bloodshed, until Karkat stepped up to pacify him and the others, cementing his role as Gamzee's moirail (one of the troll romances). With Gamzee no longer rampaging for the time being, the remaining trolls could concentrate on awaiting the critical moment, the moment when the Trollian viewport cut off. When that moment arrived, when the sudden appearance of the Green Sun became apparent, Sollux used his psionic powers to push the meteor they were on towards this new light and power source - a move which killed him. Or at least half killed him, since when they arrived there was another Sollux waiting for them, along with Aradia, Dave and Rose - all in God Tier.

Terezi was both thrilled at the chance to meet the humans (and to talk to an Aradia who was actually cheerful once more, if a little morbid) and embarrassed by the way the others - Karkat in particular - reacted to their presence. She expresses some dismay that her Seer powers have nowhere near the scope that Rose's seem to, but otherwise seems keen to make a good impression on the humans. She, with the others, discover that they are to make their way towards a new session, a journey which will take three years to complete and which will require Rose to navigate. Sollux and Aradia decide to remain behind, using their powers to give the rest of the group a head-start against Bec Noir, who could now find them again since they were no longer concealed. Before they departed, however, a distraught PM - who, with the White Queen's ring, now had the same powers as Noir - arrived with WV's corpse and asked them to save him.

Our next glimpse of Terezi sees her and the others a year into their journey. Their path leads them through many dream bubbles, where they can see and converse with dead friends and doomed alternate selves - including doomed God Tier versions of their friends. As a result of these dream bubbles, a doomed God Tier Feferi is able to use her Witch of Life powers to bring WV back to life. Since that point, it is shown that Terezi and Dave have spent a lot of time with WV, having helped him restore Can Town and generally wrecked havoc with chalk. Karkat notes that Terezi has spent much of the year "gallivanting around the meteor" with Dave - it is unclear if she is aware of Karkat's jealousy over the time they spend together or what her true intentions are, but certainly since meeting in person she and Dave have spent a lot of time together.

She also appears to at least be somewhat in charge of alerting the others when they are about to hit a new dream bubble, although whether this is something that is exclusively hers or if it's something that's a shared duty isn't made clear. As it turns out, this dream bubble is one which very heavily involves Terezi and allows a glimpse at what she has been thinking over the past year. The bubble passes through a memory of her hive back on Alternia, and she is shown either bleeding or crying. As it turns out, the memory for this particular dream bubble is her conversation with Vriska just after she was blinded. Terezi reacts by recalling how crazy Vriska was, only for the conversation to deviate as "Vriska" points out that Terezi has been looking for a chance to apologise which is why she invoked the memory.

As it turns out, "Vriska" is actually Aranea, a young version of Vriska's ancestor who is actually from the original SGRUB session - the one from a time when Alternia was peaceful, the one who made up part of the original twelve players who saw their session reset and went on to become the main trolls' ancestors. Aranea, like Vriska, was a Light hero and her Sylph powers appear to focus on healing. She states that she wants to help Terezi heal the burdens of the past - the regrets and wounds that would serve no purpose once their final destination was reached. It becomes clear that for all Vriska was a nightmare, Terezi wishes she weren't dead and expresses remorse and doubt over whether she truly did the right thing and whether the options at that vital moment - let her go or stab her in the back - were truly the only ones available to her.

It becomes apparent that she at least partly blames her actions in the lead-up to the final confrontation for what happened and also becomes apparent that she has all but given up on her role as Seer of Mind, at least for the time being, admitting that she doesn't think she was very good at it. As conversation progresses, she admits she has tried to rationalise what she did, through telling herself that everyone would have died if she hadn't done what she had, to blame a higher power, but ultimately she is still searching for the answer, the logic that will let her heal this regret. Aranea also offers to literally heal Terezi, to restore her sight, but Terezi declines, reaffirming that her blindness reminds her of her lusus and how they bonded. She comes to regard Aranea as a "nice Vriska", talking with her about what Alternia used to be like and whether Aranea misses home as much as Terezi does. Ultimately, it is revealed that they are headed to talk to Meenah, Feferi's counterpart and the Thief of Life who is described as a troublemaker. It is from this moment that Terezi will arrive back onto the Thor.

Personality-wise, Terezi hasn't changed that much. She's a little less into the whole Seer of Mind thing and has managed to distance herself a little from her hate of Vriska, at least enough that she can miss her and feel sorry she's gone. Other than that, she hasn't really changed - she's still mischievous, outgoing and a touch manipulative, though how much so is not entirely clear.

1st person sample: N/A

3rd person sample: As another dream bubble approached, Terezi was quick to alert the others. She wasn't entirely sure where anyone else was - she expected that little carapaced fellow was still tending to his Can Town and Rose and Kanaya were probably busy doing whatever it was they did, but she hoped that perhaps Dave or Karkat would join her. On the one hand, it would be nice to spend some quality time with Karkat rather than him frothing himself into a rage over nothing that she could figure out. On the other hand, since Dave had arrived she had finally had someone to share things with - they could draw together and explore the meteor and things were fun again.

The meteor felt less like a prison for his being there.

That wasn't to say that there weren't things she didn't still wonder. Regrets that she still clung to, confusion over her role now that Rose had arrived and proved herself to be far more adept at the Seer thing than Terezi had ever been. And almost always her thoughts drifted back to Vriska. Would the next bubble allow them to meet? Would she get the chance she so desperately craved to apologise, to somehow make up for everything she did wrong so that she found herself now missing her nightmare of a friend?

One thing was for sure - with the bubble fast approaching, she would soon get to find out.

Anything else worth mentioning: Hope it's okay I've done third but not first - pretty much what other people see won't change much, but how she thinks has so I figured it better to present that instead.

IC:

Character name: Terezi Pyrope
Fandom: Homestuck
Timeline: After killing Vriska
Age: Six sweeps/approx. 13 human years

~*Magical*~ abilities and strengths: Terezi is the Seer of Mind. This allows her to see the possible consequences of actions taken by herself and her friends and ensure that they do not do something which will jeopardize the alpha timeline. It also allows her to determine which of two or more possible actions will have the best or if nothing else the least catastrophic outcome.

Additionally, despite being blind Terezi is able to "see" and even read by using her senses of smell and taste. She “sees” colours based on what they smell and taste like; red is her favourite colour as to her it is the most “delicious”. Ordinarily, smell alone is enough to get her by but occasionally she has to lick things to get a better idea of what she’s seeing (or to gross someone out, or just for the hell of it).

Tied into this ability, Terezi has the power to smell lies. Subtle, white lies will usually fly under her radar but if a lie is big enough or if someone tells her multiple lies during the same conversation she’ll notice that she is not being told the truth.

Finally, Terezi has a strife specibus of canekind. This means she is able to use anything falling under the description of cane as a weapon.

How would they use their abilities?: Terezi's one of the good guys so she'd mostly use them in the quest for justice and/or to ensure her friends don't do anything stupid. However, she also enjoys trolling people so she's just as likely to use them to freak people out - especially the sniffing/licking. Hope you didn't enjoy having personal space!

Appearance: Terezi, like all Homestuck trolls, has grey skin, black hair and candy corn horns which, in her case, are straight and pointy. Unlike most Homestuck trolls, her eyes are not yellow; rather they are red and pupil-less after they were burnt out. Usually her eyes are hidden behind red glasses. Her teeth are terrifyingly pointy and shark-like and her lips are naturally black.

Clothing-wise, Terezi is usually seen in a black t-shirt with a teal Libra symbol on it reflecting her blood colour and symbol. Black trousers and red sneakers complete the look. Alternatively she may be in her FLARP costume, which looks a little like this

Background/Personality: Terezi grew up on a planet known as Alternia, although she was actually "born" through ectobiology as a clone of herself (this is not the first time Homestuck will get mindscrewy). Upon surviving the Trials of the Breeding Caves, which all troll grubs must face if they wish to progress to the next step in their maturing process, she was assigned her lusus - a creature which would serve as guardian to the young troll as the adult trolls were all away fighting an intergalactic war. Terezi's lusus was a blind dragon who slept in an egg which was balancing a Doomsday device. If the dragon were ever to hatch it would set off the device and thus bring about the end of the world; Terezi therefore grew up without her lusus, living in the woods near to said Doomsday device.

From an early age, Terezi has always been fascinated with law and justice. Dreaming of joining the legislacerators (the troll equivalent of a lawyer), she would often role-play trials in her home using Scalemate (dragon) plushies as her suspects and witnesses. Evidence of her "games" could be seen in the trees outside her home as those Scalemates found guilty were sentenced to hang and remain hanging to serve as examples. As she got older, this led her into an extreme form of live roleplaying known as FLARP where she created a character (based on her ancestor), Neophyte Redglare. She considered herself and teammate Vriska Serket, together known as Team Scourge, to be a vigilante duo hell-bent on serving justice.

Unfortunately, Vriska had other ideas. During a FLARP session with Team Charge, aka Tavros Nitram and Aradia Megido, she manipulated Tavros into jumping off a cliff. This was enough to convince Terezi that continued association with Vriska would be a bad idea - while she had, technically, been acting within her rights as a blueblood, Terezi couldn't forgive her. She warned Aradia against taking revenge, not wanting anyone else to get hurt, and insisted she would handle things herself. To that end, she contacted Doc Scratch: an omnipotent, omnipresent being known as a First Guardian. Vriska held one of Doc Scratch's magic cue balls and when Terezi alerted him to this, he caused said cue ball to explode in Vriska's face. It is clear, therefore, that Terezi is not above the art of revenge and that if she feels an act is unjust, she will step in to rectify that. She may be malicious but causing severe physical injury is a step too far even for her.

This all led to a turning point in Terezi's life. While Vriska had mind-control powers she couldn't directly control Terezi; she therefore forced Tavros to commune with Terezi's lusus and used that link to get the lusus to influence Terezi. Guided by her lusus, Terezi went outside during the day (trolls are nocturnal by nature) and stared into the blistering Alternia sun. Her eyes burned out and she was blinded; however, at the same time her dreamself awoke on Prospit. Each troll had a dreamself on one of two moons; Prospit is the "light" dream moon. The dreamself, once awoken, would wake up when the real troll slept; in Terezi's case this allowed her to communicate with her lusus for the first time. Her lusus taught her how to utilise taste and smell in order to make up for her lack of sight and in time, she could see as well as she ever had. In fact, she came to enjoy being blind and determined it was the best thing that could have happened to her. This doesn't, however, stop her from using it to wind up others - she will goad people into using phrases related to sight before reminding them she cannot see, or else she will tell people off for mocking or otherwise being mean to a blind girl while laughing the whole time.

Some months later, Terezi was approached by Sollux Captor to play a game known as SGRUB, which he and Aradia had created from some code the latter had found in one of the two Frog Temples on Alternia. She was asked to lead one of the two teams, and immediately claimed Team Red - red being her favourite colour because it is the "most delicious". After recruiting Tavros to her team and inviting Nepeta to join (an invitation she would later be forced to decline), Terezi was approached by Karkat Vantas who demanded he become leader of their team. Since she had no real concern over whether she was leading or not (and possibly knowing that his becoming leader meant she'd become his server player and thus able to manipulate his environment) she agreed to this arrangement and helped him carry out the steps needed for him to enter the game world before Gamzee Makara did the same for her. As it turned out, the two teams were actually playing in one session which made the team-finding exercise all but irrelevant (although whether by luck or judgement, the teams did coincide with whether the trolls' dreamselves resided on Prospit or Derse)

A side note on SGRUB: playing the game causes the players' home planet to be destroyed by meteors (kind of; time and causality in Homestuck are impossible to denote in any form of linear fashion. Effectively, a stable time loop causes the meteors to impact regardless and playing the game is the only means of escape). Those wishing to survive must complete a set procedure which will let them literally enter the game world of Skaia. The end goal of the game is to create a new universe to replace the one they lost. As Seer of Mind, Terezi was able to guide herself and her friends to victory, despite having to face a twelve-times prototyped Black King - all enemies within the game were affected or "prototyped" by whatever the trolls used in their kernelsprite (a flashing sprite which, when prototyped, could provide insight into the game), which turned out to be eleven lusus (including one which had the power to wipe out the entire troll race save for the current Empress and her heiress) and a frog statue. Naturally this was a tough fight but the twelve trolls stood their ground together and secured their victory.

As they were about to claim their prize, however, a rift opened and brought in a demon from another session - specifically, a session borne from the very universe they had created. The twelve fled and hid out on a laboratory on a meteor in the Veil - somewhere the creature wouldn't be able to find them. Here, Terezi found herself receiving a money transfer of 413 boonbonds from an unknown source. As well as being a ridiculously high sum of money, 413 are the numerals of the blind prophets and so naturally she was intrigued. She asked Sollux to trace the transfer and this is where they discovered that kids from "their" universe were playing the same game as them. (It would turn out, her future self had arranged this transfer so that this would happen)

Thus Terezi first began speaking to one Dave Strider. She was fascinated by his coolkid ways, having been able to tap into key moments of his life through a viewport connected to Trollian (their IM client). It's here that it becomes apparent she can smell lies, in addition to her usual smell-as-sight-replacement. In time, she would grow to become attached to Dave but in the meantime Karkat had ordered them to troll (in the internet sense) the kids as punishment for stopping them claiming their prize. Terezi's first target was Rose Lalonde, who like Terezi had been given the role of Seer. Though vicious and cruel in her words (she claimed she wanted to "watch Rose die" and for them to become hate-friends) she nevertheless provided a lot of helpful information.

Her next act wasn't quite so magnanimous. She approached John Egbert, the third of the four human players, and offered to help him by means of a shortcut. She claimed she wanted to see what would happen if they "broke" the timeline, i.e. strayed from the timeline shown on the viewport; in truth, it's possible she did this because she knew Vriska wanted to help John become better than Dave and she was attempting to sabotage. Regardless of her reasons, Terezi showed John a shortcut which would lead him to his Denizen (a powerful figure which ruled over the planet the game had created for him) far earlier than the game was designed to allow. There was, of course, good reason for this; John was killed and this sparked an offshoot timeline which lasted four months before Dave (the Knight of Time) hopped back in time to fix things. In the aftermath, Terezi does seem genuinely remorseful for what she did - again, she can be cruel and she enjoys toying with people but she does appear to feel guilty for killing him.

In order to make up for her previous actions, Terezi provided John with an actually helpful map to his second gate (means of progressing through the game) before returning her focus to Dave. She helped him to exploit his time powers in order to manipulate the Skaian stock exchange so he would have enough in-game currency to buy things which would help him become more powerful as well as to set up the money transfer which caused all this to happen in the first place. She also decided to see if Dave would be able to reach God Tier, an extra-powerful level which, of the trolls, only Vriska had managed to achieve. Reaching God Tier required that the player died on their Quest Bed and that they still had their dreamself available to replace them (dreamselves function as extra lives in addition to the previously-noted use). Because the trolls could speak to the kids at any point in the timeline, not necessarily in a linear fashion, Terezi was able to create an offshoot timeline by asking if Dave wanted an immediate answer to how to reach God Tier or if he would prefer to wait. This caused one Dave to find the Quest Bed and sleep there so that when the other (Alpha, i.e. true timeline) Dave showed up, he would have to in effect kill himself (thus, face his own death). She did this not because she wanted to see him hurt but because she wanted him to understand the gravity of having to face one's own death.

This is proved when, after the Alpha Dave has accepted he cannot kill even another version of himself and leaves, the doomed offshoot Dave is killed by Bec Noir. Bec Noir is a four-time prototyped version of arch-agent Jack Noir, who was intended to be an NPC quest character. The trolls agreed to help him dethrone the Black Queen but ultimately exiled him; in the kids' session, Jack had gotten hold of the Black Queen's ring and thus gained the power of their prototyping which included Bec, pet dog of Jade Harley who also happened to be a First Guardian (similar to Doc Scratch). Bec Noir is also the demon that terrorised the trolls' session. But to return to Terezi, seeing a version of Dave get killed upset her enough that she had to flee from the main control room where the bulk of the trolls were, proof that she had come to care a great deal for him.

Because she left the hub, she remained unaware of Eridan killing Feferi and Kanaya or of Gamzee sobering and thus becoming psychotic. While wandering the lab alone she came across Tavros’ corpse, deducing (correctly) that Vriska was responsible. She let Karkat know of her discovery then removed her glasses in order to try and revive Tavros by corpsesmooch - unsuccessfully since his dreamself (and everyone else's) had been killed when Noir destroyed the trolls' version of Prospit. Because she abandoned her glasses, this allowed Gamzee to steal them and scare Karkat into blocking her handle. Making her way back to the hub, Terezi found it deserted save for indications that Kanaya may have been hurt and then, after further investigation, that Feferi had been killed. Because she didn’t know what had happened she decided that this, too, had all been down to Vriska and that she had somehow, inexplicably gained a taste for blood. She tried to relay this to Karkat, frustrated that she had been blocked, but did later manage to speak to Sollux who told her that Eridan had blinded him. She ended the conversation, saying she could sense Kanaya; she later awoke to find she was sporting a bandaged bite wound - the implication being that Kanaya, now a Rainbow Drinker (troll Vampire) had fed from her.

Terezi pressed on with her investigation, speaking to Dave who had just found his brother’s corpse while happening upon Nepeta (and presumably Equius; both had been killed by Gamzee) herself. She expressed irritation over the fact that their conversations were always about Dave and his problems, likely because with everything that was happening she wanted to be able to talk about her own concerns, but still seemed sympathetic towards him. She ended her conversation with Dave and continued, finding a note in Gamzee’s blood, pinned down by Nepeta’s claws. Upon investigation, it turned out to be a trap that Gamzee had set and she fell into a separate room. Here she found the second “game disc”, which she mistook for a record and played on the gramophone in the room, scratching it in doing so. She also found her old role-play costume and Pyralspite plush and decided to wear said costume before leaving the room and hunting down Vriska, determined now that she would have to play the role of legislacerator and make Vriska pay for what she did.

Terezi found Vriska, who confessed to Tavros but rightly said that she was not responsible for the other deaths. Regardless, Terezi decided judgement had to be made and subjected Vriska to a flip of her two-headed coin. Heads, Vriska would stay on the meteor. Scratch, she’d be free to go and track down Noir. In actual fact, scratch meant that Terezi would kill Vriska, something of which they were both aware. Vriska thus manipulated the flip, using her ability to steal luck, so that it would end with scratch, confident that Terezi wouldn't have what it took to backstab her. And she may have been right, except that Terezi knew that if she didn't kill Vriska, she would lead Noir to them and both Terezi and Karkat would wind up dead. Thus she did what she had to do, killing her former roleplay-partner-turned rival.

So to sum Terezi up: initially she comes across as obnoxious, derisive and often a little psychotic. She appears to treat everyone she speaks to with the same mocking, sometimes downright callous attitude and enjoys making other people squirm whether through her words or by getting all up in their personal space to sniff and/or lick them. However, beneath that she is a lot more balanced and has the capacity for compassion when it comes to others, particularly those she is close to. A lot of her behaviour can be chalked up to curiosity, and she is most persistent if she thinks someone has something to hide (see: Karkat and his blood colour). While she is middling on the hemospectrum (the social caste structure for trolls which runs from red (lowblood) to purple (highblood)) she if anything seems more inclined to befriend those lower on the spectrum than she is - she claims she is "too teal" for the nobility-level blue bloods.

In short: she is everything you would expect of an internet troll, but beneath that is a girl with a thirst for justice and a drive to do the right thing.

1st person sample: [The first thing on the feed is a close-up of someone's tongue licking the screen. The second is a grey-faced, shark-toothed female with red glasses as she pulls back enough to appear in shot]

Okay, good. This isn't Trollian but close enough. And I can't find the keyboard on this stupid thing so this will have to do.

Attention residents of this strange place which is not the meteor lab! I wish to lodge an official complaint about this most unjust and unlawful grubnapping. If this is about what I did to the spiderbitch she got what she deserved or else she'll be back on her feet and bitching at me soon enough. And even if that weren't true, we do not require humans or [she sniffs a few times] whatever else you are to meddle in the dispensation of troll justice.

Were that not bad enough, you have seen fit to grubnap a blind girl and force her to contend with a ridiculous amount of paperwork. I would almost applaud your sense of malice were I not the one having to endure your stupid procedures. When I find whoever's in charge they're in line for the drubbing of their lives.

3rd person sample: Terezi gripped the Pyralspite plush tightly, convincing herself that she wasn’t hugging it. As of this moment she was no longer Terezi, she was Neophyte Redglare and she was on a mission to end the Marquise’s murderous rampage before everyone else was wiped out. Just as in old times, where she would be forced to keep the Marquise in line while ensuring that Team Charge met with the justice they deserved, Redglare was out to ensure that these horrifying deeds would not go unpunished.

Except no, this wasn’t a game. Costume aside, Terezi was determined she would stop her former friend. Even with the knowledge that Eridan had snapped and blinded Sollux, she couldn’t shake off the feeling that everything else, all of the deaths, had been that spidertroll’s fault. Had been Vriska’s fault - but no, she refused to keep thinking that. There was no “Vriska”, only a murderess who deserved to face justice. If she did that, if she allowed herself to keep using the familiar name of her former Scourge Sister, she wasn’t sure she could keep it together enough to proceed.

Her legs seemed to carry her almost of their own accord; she seemed to instinctively know where the spidertroll would be. And all the while, the images of her dead friends floated through her mind, just as vivid and terrible as they had been when she’d first discovered them. Too many had died, both tonight and in the sweeps prior, and someone had to put an end to it. She had to put an end to it, because if not her then who? Sollux was newly-blind, Karkat was likely flipping the fuck out and everyone else, as far as she knew, was dead or dying. And so it fell to her to stay strong, to put aside the images and the emotion that accompanied them and to focus on doing what she knew she had to do. Because this time, there was no saving Vriska - she was already dead to Terezi and all that remained was to ensure that her orange creamsicle-wearing body went the same way.
