I was listening to Homestuck Vol. 9 when I had a short burst of inspiration and motivation. I’ve written my interpretation on why Gavin goes Grimdark in RTstuck. Really short, 1038 words. A good bit of swearing. I pretty much wrote this in one fell swoop and didn’t bother to edit it, so don’t judge me too harshly. I might edit this later and make it a proper story, but until then, uh, enjoy!
Biggest plot twist in Heir Vs Grimdark: Michael is face to face with Grimdark Gavin. Gavin is about to attack, when a bright light shine within Michael. Gavin steps back and watches Michael turn.

As for grimdark behavior, I think he would be slowly calming down, slow speech, spaced breathing, all of that stuff. As if Gavin was coming down from a really bad panic attack.
I didnt like the other trickster michael i did because compared to the homestuck trickster he wanst very
So i also took this oportunety for more grimdark gavin

Done entirely in GIMP 2.8
I wanted to try to make some pesterlog gifs and this is what the result was. Think of this as a little preview for my Grimdark!Gavin story.
It was originally going to be typing, but this came out pretty cool. Also, I am more than happy how the glitch looks like at the end.

Also, sorry for how the text looks like. Tumblr did a crap job of resizing it.
