dipperhugs replied to your post: dipperhugs replied to your post: dipperhugs…do you really want me to go off on my eridan tirade because it contains a lot of feelings but zero apologies for what a colossal fuckup he is and what a lot of terrible things he did and it’s… i have a lot to say about eridan ampora (ʘ‿ʘ✿)
dude i can handle zero apologies for characters fucking up and doing terrible things….have you not….seen my blog….?
hit me with your best shot and teach me how to love an ampora
ok first of all that sounds like a bad pickup line albeit one that would totally work on me
here we go
don’t say i didn’t warn you
Okay, so, Eridan Ampora. He’s a fucking douchebag. But he’s that way for a very good reason. I make no apologies for the things Eridan does as a result of who he grew to become, but I think it’s also unfair to assess him without the full… gravity… of everything.
First of all, to understand Eridan, you have to understand what motivates him, what it is that’s under his skin that makes him tick, the reason he is the way he is, and that is that at the essence of who he is, there are some very conflicting notions:
No one loves Eridan Ampora more than Eridan Ampora.
No one hates Eridan Ampora more than Eridan Ampora.
Eridan’s main motivator is love. All he wants is for someone to truly love him.
He has absolutely no idea how love works, or should work, or how to make it work.
Allow me to extrapolate!
okay yes wow this is good wow
i’d probably (definitely) need to re-read his parts in homestuck to get the full gist but yes this is good thank you
