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…
Rei’s “Bitch, please!” face is glorious. She is so done with this shit.
medusa, trying to turn you to stone, but you accidentally called her “melissa” when you first walked in and now you’re too embarrassed to look at her. “it’s alright” she keeps saying “i get it all the time” but you still won’t look. u don’t even remember the stone thing until later
kitten wiggles ears while eating
i don’t even care if i reblog this twice a day every single day for the rest of my life
he gave it to her real good
I THINK I FOUND A WAY TO DRAW HIS HAIR???? maYBE???????
Mark’s looking like Maes Hughes more and more each day
The resemblance is uncanny
Does that mean marks gonna die like maes???
ok the gravity falls theme is cool backwards without even considering the spooky reverse whispering
Posting this on this page again for the “Three Letters Back” part.
And because wow this is so cool.
For those who don’t know, “three letters back” is the solution to the cipher for the secret message at the end of every episode. Take the nonsense letters and dial them all three letters back.
This show is in a league of its own.
