eyy same god tier as me!
shut up about “OH HAHA THE HIATUS HAS BEGUN” like no, people do weird sprite edits every time there’s an update, so it’s just sort of a thing that people do for homestuck
it’s like the whole ” oh no nightblogging has begun” thing
let’s try this again
you’re going to suggest characters from stuff for me to draw (cartoons n such) and i will doodle them all into one big doodle thingy
do you ever wish you could unread a book or unwatch a movie/tv show just so you could go back and experience it all again as if it were brand new
— Jake English and the Legend of Sleepy Hollow —
TT: Has he been sleeping in the old man hollow again? Shit, that’s adorable.
GG: I can think of cuter places for him to sleep, frankly!
TT: Yeah, bullshit.
As you can see, there was a conspicuous mention of Sleepy Hollow in the conversation Jane had after Lil’ Seb emerged from the neck of Poppop’s corpse, decapitating him. And the references to it haven’t ceased since, not even since Dirk’s decapitation.
Also known as the tale of the headless horseman-
…it entails the supposed rise of the ghost of a decapitated Hessian soldier, still riding at night and searching for his severed head.
Sort of like the wish Jane carved into the seedpod in Myststuck.
After all, she didn’t carve all of Jake into it:
Only his HEAD.
The headless horseman who chases Ichabod Crane in the tale is said to be carrying his own severed head at his saddle… at least how Ichabod saw it. In various popular depictions of the story, like the Disney one I saw fifty times as a kid, it was depicted for what it really was: A PUMPKIN, a firey Jack-o-lantern which at the climactic moment, the ghost THREW into Ichabod’s face!
TG: k but it aint pardoned because a pumpkin aint even a fruit
TG: its a big orange porch thing for holloween numbnuts
(Note Jake’s trickster-mode pumpkin-adorned head, as well.)
The reason it was a pumpkin and not an actual head? Because ghosts are fake as shit. In the original tale, it’s implied that a suitor competing with Ichabod for a woman’s hand impersonated the ghost from the campfire story they’d all been told, in order to run the outsider of Mr. Crane out of town never to be seen again.
And given the compounding evidence that Lord English is planning to somehow gank and possess Jake’s body or corpse after he’s proven himself by defeating his possessed surrogate, Jack…
uu: HE MAKES NO BONES ABOuT GANKING MY LOOK.
uu: IT’S PATHETIC.
uu: YOu DON’T JuST GO AND JACK A MAN’S SWAGGER.
uu: THAT’S THE CARDINAL FuCKING RuLE OF BROS. RIGHT?
uu: PROBABLY SOME DAY.
uu: I’LL TEACH HIM A LESSON FOR THAT.
ARANEA: He has had many incarnations in many universes.
ARANEA: If you continue on your journey for long enough, you may encounter one of them.
ARANEA: And if you have 8ecome strong enough 8y then, you may 8e a8le to defeat him in com8at.
ARANEA: And if that comes to pass, it would 8e the first defeat he has ever known.
GT: But hey you are the lord and i am the lowly page.
uu: DAMN STRAIGHT.
uu: NEVER FORGET WHO YOU ARE MEANT TO SERVE.
uu: IF I HELP YOU REACH YOUR FULL POTENTIAL. AS A PAGE OF HOPE. YOU COULD BECOME EXTREMELY POWERFUL SOME DAY.
uu: MAYBE EVEN POWERFUL ENOUGH TO POSE A CHALLENGE TO ME. OR MAYBE EVEN ENOUGH TO BEAT ME.
uu: WHEN I SAID “MEANT TO SERVE”. SERVE MEANT MORE THAN ONE THING. YOU KNOW. LIKE KICK MY ASS??
GT: Are you ripping me off bro??
uu: NO YOU FUCKING MORON.
uu: IF I STOOPED TO YOUR LEVEL. AND DECIDED TO JACK *ANY* PORTION OF YOUR SWAGGER.
uu: DON’T YOU THINK. YOU’D NEED TO EARN MY RESPECT FIRST???
…it’s a good bet that at some point, somehow, LORD ENGLISH’S HEAD will erupt in place of Jake’s own!
GT: Indubitably. Rest assured it feels like a brood of anxious vermin is making its most valiant effort to escape from my skull.
Don’t think there’s enough evidence yet? Well, I’m not done. Keep reading under the cut, because these aren’t even HALF the references to this. Don’t you remember exactly how Lil’ Seb emerged from Poppop to kick off this Sleepy Hollow thing in the first place? :)
