John is pretty much blind without his glasses.
Whenever John is about to say the punchline in a joke, he laughs a little bit, completely ruining it. Even so, the others will laugh too because they find it amusing.
John snores.
Rose tosses and turns a lot in her sleep.
Rose often stays up past midnight just to spite her mom.
Dave doesn't sleep at all from Friday morning to Sunday afternoon. Then crashes like a motherfucker and skips school on Monday to sleep in.
Jade has a squeaky snore.
Jade hates wearing pants. Getting her to wear them is like trying to get a cat to take a bath. There is a lot of flailing and screeching involved.
Rose is a great cook when motivated enough.
Dave has a sweet tooth.
Jade is far-sighted.
Rose is self-tutored in French.
Jade has mild autism.
Jade is chubby.
Jade never learned how to tie shoes.
Rose has trust issues.
God Tier outfits are basically pajamas.
Rose used to have long hair. She just cut it in one of those passive-agressive battles with her mom.
Jade is the kind of person who gets really really REALLY angry over video games.
Jade can only read a few levels above her grade.
Though tricksters seem really sweet, they're actually quite malicious. They love nothing more than to play (usually dangerous) pranks, and they laugh at just about anything. Tell them a joke? They'll laugh. Lose a limb? They'll laugh at that too. Tricksters are EVIL.
Full names: Johnathan Esteban Egbert // Rose Holly Lalonde // David Beau Strider // Jade Rebecca Harley
Jade sees Karkat as the older brother she never had.


Terezi has a loud, raspy, screechy, kinda obnoxious voice.
Equius thinks he's ugly and can't stand looking in mirrors.
Feferi's necklaces and bracelets are glow sticks.
Relationships between highbloods and lowbloods are frowned upon.
Karkat can calm down any rampaging being as long as their blood comes in contact with him. This is perfectly normal for heroes of BLOOD.
Terezi has one dimple on her right cheek.
Terezi loves Ode To The Bouncer. Mostly because of all the colors.
Kanaya will not enter another person's home without an invitation first.
Aradia sleeps like a body in a coffin.
Equius is one of those people that outright refuses to eat junk food.
Karkat is a side-sleeper and talks/curses in his sleep.
Kanaya wakes up at midnight and goes to sleep midday. (Like me!)
Vriska almost never sleeps. Therefore, energy drinks are Vriska's best friend.
Equius is prone to terrible nightmares.
Feferi sleeps cradled in Gl'bgolyb's tentacles, like a baby in it's mother's arms.
Nepeta almost always eats her food raw.
Most of the stuff Terezi eats is pre-made.
Vriska is a vegetarian. And she LOVES raw chili peppers.
Equius break dances.
Tavros blushes easily.
For trolls, beheading is a customary thing to do for the dead.
Terezi's eyes glow in the dark.
Albino trolls have gray hair, and their horns are red, pink, and white.
Nepeta is lactose-intolerant.
Karkat listens to heavy metal because it reminds him of how he sounds.
Aradia loves (and sounds like) Evanescence.
Sollux listens to trance.
Equius is actually really prudish when it comes to sex and kinky stuff. If anyone were to overtly approach him about doing any of that weird kinky shit, his response would be "OH MY WORD, ABSOLUTELY NOT!". However, if he was romantically interested in somebody, he would take it extremely slow and take them through this elaborate traditional courtship before even considering getting down to vanilla pailing, let alone kinky stuff.
Mutant bloods aren't the lowes, they're the highest.
Nepeta paws at doors she can't get into.
It's entirely possible for trolls to reproduce normally with eachother, but reproduction via Mother Grub is strongly enforced, and normal reproduction is greatly discouraged.
Horns are a secondary sexual characteristic in troll culture.
The only hair trolls have is on the tops of their heads. They can't even grow facial hair.
Tavros is afraid to fall in love. He's afraid Vriska might try to hurt his love interest.
Terezi is pudgy.
Sollux and Feferi are actually moirails.
Feferi and Vriska are amazing singers.
Eridan is shy, but tries to hide it.
Feferi's shirt is actually the top part of a one-piece bathing suit.
Feferi is a bit of a player, but doesn't realize it.
Soulbot!Aradia sounds like GLaDOS.
Gamzee has REALLY bad abandonment issues.
Troll grubs chirp and purr like the antlion grubs in HL2.
The closer moirails are, the more BATSHIT INSANE one becomes if the other dies.
Terezi refuses to eat eggs. Not even chocolate ones. And she doesn't like it when her friends eat them, either. H3R MOMMY W4S 4N 3GG. >:[
Karkat is a huge fan of (troll) VALVe.
Nepeta plays dating sims and JRPGs.
Eridan plays H-games.
Gamzee sounds like the lead singer of Creature Feature.
When Sollux gets a matesprit, he'll give them bee-themed nicknames. Like 'honey', 'my sweet little bumblebee', ect.
All trolls have different kinds of teeth. (For example, Karkat has human teeth with enlarged incisors, Nepeta has cat teeth (and a flat tongue), and seadwellers have shark-like teeth.)
Out of all the trolls, Gamzee has the longest tongue.
Gamzee laughs like a hyena.
Terezi is a M4TH WH1Z >;]
Equius has a beautiful singing voice.
Sollux paints his fingernails blue and red.
Before the game, Tavros and Aradia would headbutt eachother.
Seadwellers' fins are where their ears should be, but they have inner ears like dolphins.
INSTRUMENTSTUCK: Aradia = Harp // Tavros = Ocarina // Sollux = Synthesizer // Nepeta = Glockenspiel // Kanaya = Cello // Terezi = Clarinet // Vriska = Electric Guitar // Equius = Sousaphone // Gamzee = Drums // Eridan = Pipe organ // Feferi = Sitar. KARKAT IS NOT ALLOWED NEAR INSTRUMENTS.
Trolls have birthmarks shaped like their respective signs somewhere on their bodies.
Thanks to reading one of the many accentstucks out there, I can never picture Sollux NOT having a Jersey accent.
Nepeta's tail is attatched to her underwear, and she can't pull her pants up over it, so they're sliding down her butt every five minutes. This is also the reason she wears a trenchcoat.
8 sweeps is the legal drinking and smoking age for trolls.
Trolls aren't freakin' colorful. Karkat wouldn't have lasted four seconds with reddish skin, and grey makeup would have stuck out like a sore thumb.
After his accident, Tavros gained a slight fear of heights.
If there really was no hope left for the trolls, Feferi would have pulled a Gamzee out of grief. And after everyone was dead, she'd probably take her own life afterwards. ALL MY FRI-ENDS AR-E H-ER-E NOW!!
Instead of getting the hiccups, Aradia gets the ribbits.
Kanaya's voice is very deep and womanly.
If two trolls were to have a grub naturally, their blood color would be in between the two parents. Like, say Aradia and Kanaya had a grub. It's blood color would be maroon, orange, yellow, green, or jade.
Gamzee's shirt is oversized, and is constantly sliding down his shoulders.


For Dersites, the taste of blood is like an aphrodisiac, and they tend to bite eachother during those 'private moments'.
Carapaces can't die from old age. Only from things like physical damage, radiation poisoning, ect. They have very high immune systems, and can survive a long time without eating or drinking anything.
Related to the above, carapaces are created in tubes. They start out as children, and they (physically) age VERY slowly. When they reach adulthood, they stay that way.
You guys know Brad from 4PlayerPodcast? He's my headcanon voice for WV.
All Dersites are sadomasochists on SOME level.
Dersites and Prospitians hiss or snarl when they're frightened, angered, or defensive.
Dersite culture has an Adam's Family streak to it.
Prospitians are pleasantly warm to the touch. And Dersites are fucking freezing. And Prospitians are more tolerant to warm temperatures, while Dersites would probably get heatstroke rather quickley. And Dersites are used to cooler temperatures, where Prospitians would catch a cold after just half and hour of being out in the cold.

Midnight Crew

Boxcars is actually a really sweet guy, and is basically a big teddy bear to anyone who isn't the Felt.
Slick loves dogs, and not just terriers.
Droog has a feminine build.
They all watch PASWG. They love it.
Slick is way smarter than he lets on, he just hides it for whatever reason.
Droog may be bad, but he's honest.
Slick does NOT like being called "Jack".
Deuce can keep secrets, but prefers to tell everyone he knows.
Slick has a Boston accent.
the only reason slick types like this is that he only has one arm. If he had both arms, he'd type normally.
Boxcars has a southern accent.
Deuce isn't a complete idiot. At least, not when it comes to explosives and technology.
Slick has a tendency to oversleep.


Clover has a slight Irish accent.
Die has a German accent.
The reason Doc Scratch wants Slick to kill Snowman is because he simply can't bring himself to do it.
Doc Scratch doesn't talk: He uses telepathy.
Die rants a lot to his friends.
Die has nightmares almost every night, and is prone to that weird falling sensation that jolts people out of their dreams. He doesn't get much sleep, and has bags under his eyes.
Doc Scratch sounds like Wesker.
Fin has an English accent, though it's hardly noticeable.
Snowman is a sadist. (and just a biiit crazy in general.)
The rest of the Felt are like family to Snowman. They respect her, protect her, and care about her a lot.
Itchy acts like an asshole to hide his own insecurities.
Doze is the "Get a hold of yourself, man!" guy to Itchy in tense situations.
Itchy, Trace, and Die are the skinniest members of the Felt. (Though Itchy is more athletic-skinny than unhealthy-skinny.)
In addition to being a good orchestra, they also make a good choir, and they're all excellent singers in their own ways.
Sawbuck has a British accent.


The Condesce sounds like Zira from Lion King 2.
The Summoner dyed his hair red and wore red as a tribute to the Sufferer.
The Orphaners were an elite group of seadwelling warriors, charged with keeping the Emissary fed. Dualscar was never more than a mediocre member of their ranks. He lost his chance to distinguish himself and catch the Condesce's eye when he started chasing after Mindfang.
The Sufferer is left-handed.
Darkleer and the Disciple were childhood friends.
Redglare's neck didn't snap: She slowly suffocated while Mindfang laughed at her.
Wearing red along with your blood color is a sign of following the Sufferer.
Ancestors come in all different sizes. For example, The Grand Highblood really is as fuckin' massive as he looks. The generations afterwards outgrew this, though.
The Desciple was originally a dancer for the Grand Highblood.


Bro is a bit of a masochist.
Mom loved Rose. She really did. But because of her alchohol addiction, she couldn't show it properly. And Rose originally wanted to become a therapist so she could help her mommy. After all, wouldn't you?
Mom is the kind of person who calls people she's even a little familiar with love, dear, honey, ect. because she thinks it makes them feel at ease around her. Rose will find herself doing this too sometimes, after which she'll apologize profusely.

Misc.… this is what the horrorterrors sound like. (… young horrorterrors.)
Yeah, I had no idea how categorize this...

Anywho, my headcanons for Homestuck. (some of them were adopted from a tumblr thread.)

I am going to keep these. .-.
I might use them.

Question, is it weird that I'm a Scorpio and my crush is a Taurus? And instead of me being mean to him, he's mean to me? Playfully, since we're best friends. When I got into Homestuck, I thought it was a coincidence. Is it? :p freaked me out so much

This is pretty good. The headcanons really humanize the kids and the trolls. (Wait: Can trolls be humanized?) Are most of these canon, or were they developed by the fans? And the ones about Rose and Mom are just really sad and sweet.
