man todays so hot
TRACK: New York State of Mind ARTIST: Hadley Fraser & Ramin Karimloo ALBUM:
Equius is a really underrated character, and when he is brought up it’s usually just for jokes about him needing towels or in conjunction with Nepeta.
But in reality he’s like this awesome mechanical genius who builds fully functional battle robots and working bionic arms for his friends; at the human equivalent of 13 self-taught over the internet. That’s only 13 years of experience, much of it spent as a grub or small child, no matter what your ageing headcanon, while being raised by a horse-cow-butler.
Plus he is literally the strength equivalent of Thor, his STRONGjump is literally insane.
Do you even lift?
also let me point out we’ve only just recently managed to create a prosthetic robotic arm that an deal cards and tie shoelaces
MEANWHILE EQUIUS’S ROBOT ARM FOR VRISKA WORKS LIKE A FUCKING NATURAL ARM??? AND THE FINGERS AND HAND AND WRIST TOO???
and don’t even get me started on aradiabot
Can I mention here that paralysis occurs from damage to the spinal cord. Which means that it’s not just that Tavros’s legs didn’t work, it’s that the nerves didn’t send signals to the muscles properly.
Meaning that Equius would not have just had to build him a pair of legs, but also extend wires to attach electrodes directly to his think pan. This is a thing that some of the best doctors in America have only been able to do in the last few years, with much less stable results.
Not to mention the fact that he was able to craft these things out of random shit they found on the meteor and make the sensors tiny enough that they would be completely inside his head, something humans have not done to my knowledge.
tl;dr Equius is also a professional fucking brain surgeon
equius is actually one of the best trolls if you give his character more than 0.02 seconds of thought
all this and also, despite the casteist shit he was raised to believe, when karkat — lowest of the low — ordered him to stop gamzee, he went, despite probably knowing he’d have trouble standing up to him. the kid had guts.
i kind of love equius a lot and wish more people would write fic about him where he’s more than a sweat joke or a d/s caricature…

I couldn’t resist putting this in it’s own post and using that quote.
OH MY GOD DAWN THIS PICTURE IS AMAZING WOW!!
Golly it’s circling again!
Les Amis headcanon: Grantaire always leaves spare coins on tables and around the cafe because he forgets where he puts them when he’s drunk and Joly runs around collecting them and tucking them into Grantaires pocket whenever he’s passed out so that he can buy more food.
Sometimes, when Enjolras is reading or watching the news or talking on the phone, Grantaire will sit next to him and take his free hand and just start drawing on his arm with whatever he can find. Sometimes it’s a ballpoint pen or a Sharpie, sometimes it’s henna that Jehan has left behind for whatever reason, sometimes it’s goache or inks and old paintbrushes. His choices are sort of dependent on how long Enjolras is willing to sit still, which Grantaire bases mostly on exactly what has captured Enjolras’s attention.
The first few times Enjolras is baffled by this, and stops whatever he’s doing to watch and ask Grantaire exactly what he’s doing, which, the first few times, made him stop mid-stroke and leave Enjolras alone. Eventually, Enjolras learns to let Grantaire do his thing and not interrupt. He will comment on the article he’s reading, maybe, or laugh at something the reporters on television have said that he disagrees with. If he needs his arm back to find a file for whoever he’s on the phone with, or to respond to an email, he will put his other hand through Grantaire’s hair and ask the person on the other end of the line to hold on a second while his computer wakes up so that Grantaire can finish his line.
One night, while Grantiare is drawing on the inside of his forearm in permanent ink, the phone call Enjolras is partaking in gets particularly bad (the other party simply will not agree to something that Enjolras thinks should be a simple matter) and he yanks his arm away from Grantaire without warning him first. Thankfully Grantaire’s reflexes are good enough that he manages not to totally ruin his design, but he is left a little shaken up about it. When Enjolras is finally off the phone he goes back to Grantaire, who has curled up on the couch to watch TV, and puts his arm in Grantaire’s lap and all but begs him to finish, which Grantaire happily does.
A week or so later, as Enjolras is wrapping up an ABC meeting, Grantaire notices that his design is still there, and, jokingly, he asks Enjolras, “Have you not showered in the last week?”
"It’s just Sharpie, it’s not like I tattooed you."
Enjolras smiles and puts his arm out for Grantaire, “No, Feuilly did.”
And that’s the story of how Enjolras gets his first tattoo.
Posting quickly before I change my mind- especially since I havent finished anything all november?
