I have this fluffy headcanon that one of the few times Eridan ever went in the water was during a game of hide-and-seek with Feferi. Unfortunately for him she was really good at hiding (i.e. more familiar w/ the sea) so he actually got worried for real and started searching for her frantically. She stayed hidden cuz she thought it was cute seeing him get all flustered. :3 This whole incident is actually part of the reason he avoids being in the water. Bad memories. eue

A quick guide to Eridan, brought to you by [S] Kanaya: Return to the core.
Eridan is humble enough to say thanks to his friends for showing faith in him and spending some time on him.
He may be a bit conceited while saying his thanks, but you know, still.
If you say anything about hope, he’ll want to know exactly what it’s about.
Let’s have a look at his relationships.
We’ll start with Feferi.
At this point of time, he’s over her, and doesn’t really want the topic to come up much more. (In addition, he’s telling Sollux to lay off any black implications.)
Eridan wants to stay with her, and he’s totally okay with the fact that they’ll just be friends. It hurts, of course, but it’s better than losing her.
He is also perfectly capable of being civil, and he’s seriously tired of everyone constantly bringing up his quadrants when he just wants to talk about something completely unrelated. Such as switching sides for self-preservation.
Sollux is a dick towards him.
Really, if you’re on Trollmegle and you meet an Eridan, being Sollux (or Rose in a bad mood) is nearly your only excuse for being a complete asshole towards him, but in turn, you get to treat the seadweller like shit while staying in character.
Eridan is an asshole back, though.
Karkat actually gives a shit.
When I see Karkats on Trollmegle being complete dicks towards Eridans for more than a few moments of exasperation, I weep for characterisation.
Eridan talks to Karkat when he has quadrant problems, because he knows Karkat will actually listen and give him advice.
Like we’ve seen, he’s grateful as all hell to Kanaya.
Kanaya is a supporter. She made his
magic wandscience stick, and Eridan has trust in her. Also, Eridan doesn’t sense the sarcasm, and genuinely intends to use his powers in the way he thinks will be good.
She’s sarcastic to him about it sometimes, but she doesn’t really mean to. In fact, she makes sure to admit it early when she worries she might have offended him. This has absolutely nothing to do with his royal status or anything - just respect for a friend.
And guess what? No offense taken!
In fact, he takes so little offense that he offers to give Kanaya lessons in being more offensive. Read into that as you will, but they’re tight, man.
Let’s round things up for now.
I could go on and on about characterisation of Eridan, but that’ll have to wait. For now, I’ll just say that [S] Kanaya: Return to the core. should be mandatory brush-up for anyone roleplaying as Eridan, writing Eridan, or interacting with Eridan as Sollux, Karkat, Kanaya, or Feferi.
also hes really cute in the face there you see that
This is literally one of my favorite posts ever.
this was dumb
Please remember that sometimes silence on an issue or situation isn’t a lack of caring or concern: it’s a form of exhausted self-care as people pull back and try to put themselves back together. Just because I don’t say something about everything…
this is happystuck where everybody likes eridan and noone wants to get anyone killed.
Art is hard and you never cease to learn something new everyday. There is no artist that hasnt encountered a wall, dont turn around, climb it. Believe you can.
SOMEONE FINALLY SAID IT
So if a teenager is at school for roughly 8 hours, and they are doing homework for 6+ hours, and they need AT LEAST 9 HOURS OF SLEEP FOR THEIR DEVELOPING BRAINS, then they may have 0-1 hours for other activities like eating, bathing, exercise, socializing (which is actually incredibly important for emotional, mental, and physical health, as well as the development of skills vital to their future career and having healthy romantic relationships among other things), religious activities, hobbies, extra curriculars, medical care of any kind, chores (also a skill/habit development thing and required by many parents), relaxation, and family time? Not to mention that your parents may or may not pressure you to get a job, or you might need to get one for economic reasons.
I will never not reblog this
