So as a curiousity, I wanted to test this. There’s no complete database of all the characters in Homestuck, but by my count, I got 95(!!!). Now we have to first account for all the theoretical two-person ships. As auspiticeship must have 3 individuals, we only have 3 quadrants to work in. For this, we can use 95C2 to determine the number of possible 2-person combinations you can get from 95 characters, which gives a result of 4,465. Then we can put those ships in one of three quadrants, so we can multiply by 3 for a result of 13,395. A respectable number of ships.

But let’s not forget Auspiticeship and OT3s. Now we can do 95C3 to find all the potential 3-character combinations, which gives a result of 138,415 ships. Multiplying by four to account for the four quadrants gives 553,660 potential 3-way ships. Sure makes our last numbers look pretty inconsequential, doesn’t it?

When we add together 2-person ships and 3-person ships, we get a total of 567,055 potential ships by way of the Troll quadrant* system. Impressive! But not 10 million.

If you’d like to see the character list I went by: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzzdCCnfJjgpbWl2aEdVMDVoQXc/view?usp=sharing

* First one to mention the Leprechaun shipping system is getting beat down in an alleyway by a stout man named Nubbins with an unkempt beard and bad armpit odour.

However if you’d like to point out a mistake in my calculations, feel free!

Matespriteship Flushed
Involves two people who have positive feelings of affection for each other. Often involves sexual or reproductive activity.
Unspriteism F/F/F/A
When the main troll in a spriteship is forced out of it by the friend group that they themselves have founded.
Spriteship Flushed/Flushed/Ashen
When one is in a Spriteship, they surround themselves with multiple Matesprite candidates, but does not reproduce with anyone. What a tease.

When a group is gathered around the spectacle of a particularly ravenous Auspisticism.
Matespicism Flushed/Ashen
A situation where two otherwise indifferent people begin to have flushed feelings for one another, under the encouragement or force of a third individual.
Alpha Duostorgiation F/A/F/A/A/F
One of the two Duostorgiation final results. In this result, the relationship of the monitors becomes more flushed as the relationship of the second couple becomes more violent.
Duostorgiation Flushed/Ashen/Ashen/Flushed
Similar to a Storgiation, except instead of a relationship growing under pressure, the relationship will grow when love is encouraged in others. The success of the Duostorgiating trolls is directly affected by how successful the relationship that they encourage turns out to be.
Beta Duostorgiation F/A/A/F/A/F
In the second Duostorgiation, the relationship of the monitoring couple becomes more flushed as the second couple’s relationship becomes more flushed.
Storgiation Ashen/Flushed
Two people work together to resolve conflict and find themselves developing red feelings for one another. This relationship can fade easily, and can sometimes only be strengthened when put under a pressure comparable to the one that instigated it.
Spewterism A/F/A/F/A
The opposite of a Scalemateship. This is when the monitor of an Auspisticism begins to have flushed feelings for both of the other trolls involved. These two trolls must decide how to respond to their monitor’s redrom persuasion.
Scalemateship Ashen/Flushed/Ashen
A very rare time when an Auspistice finds both of their monitored enemies flushed for them. The Monitor must now choose which of their courtiers they will continue on with and which one they will kill. If they do not kill either of the violent lovers, the two may develop an Infinism.
Polyscalemateship A/F/F/A
When the members of two separate Auspisticisms become violent with each other, a third Auspisticism must step in to be the monitor. The monitor of the monitoring Auspisticism is usually put under intense pressure. Nicknamed ‘The Inception’
Auspisticism Ashen
A scenario where a mediator is required to keep a relationship between two people civil and avoid bloodshed.
Metabollegiance A/A/A/C
Surrounding trolls are naturally drawn to this central troll.
Chromership Ashen/Ashen/Caliginous
When an Auspistice becomes unreliable, an additional Auspistice may become involved in order to monitor the original Auspistice. This is usually done to avoid the development of Infinisms or Scalemateships.
Crosscorosion A/A/C/A/C
Where a Kismesissitude constantly vicilliates between stability and requirement of an Auspistice
Clovership Ashen/Caliginous
A delicate balance in which the four participating individuals harbour a strong hatred for the other three. Together, the relationship is made stable and civil. If a participant is removed from the Clovership, relationships can progress to Kismesissitude unless a mediator becomes involved or the Clovership is re-completed.
Carcatuition A/C/A/C/C/A
When a troll causes ambient conflicts in all surrounding trolls.
Counter-ClovershipAshen/Caliginous/Caliginous/Ashen
A counter clovership is the opposite of a clovership. It is a group of four trolls who, while usually very friendly or indifferent, will become extremely vicious and violent when the full Counter Clovership comes together. While the members of a Clovership must be kept together, the members of a Counter Clovership must be kept apart at all costs.
Flagism A/C/C/A/C/A
Where a troll can only seem to have romantic feelings for other trolls of a similar caste.
Infinism Caliginous/Ashen
A form of Kismesissitude, but the people involved can only have a successful black relationship if constant intervention is involved. Otherwise, their hate is so strong that they will take any opportunity to murder their Infinist.
Infimoaillegiance C/A/C/A/C
Where four trolls are compelled by fate to become an Infimositude.
Infimositude Caliginous/Ashen/Caliginous
An Infinimositude is an extremely rare and very volatile series of events. The two hateful enemies that make up an Infinism will find themselves monitored by the members of a completely different Infinimositude. The result is something not that different from a clovership. Two pairs of trolls who hate the other troll in their pair have to keep the members of the other pair from killing each other. This results in either a brutal bloodbath or a mysterious harmony.
Voidance C/A/C/A
The Absense of any romantic persuasion in a troll. Can be romantically occurring or the result of a Counter Philiasma.
Kismesissitude Caliginous
A mixture of of mutual sexual attraction and hate. Leads to reproduction.
Gladiem C/C/C/P
When a troll is hypnotised or contractually forced into a relationship. 
Descellegiance Caliginous/Caliginous/Pale
Many trolls that are part of a Kissmelegiance are actually part of a Descellegiance. This is when, due to the placebo effect, two trolls will become Kismesissitude because they believe that they are a Kissmelegiance. Unlike a Kissmelegiance which can be long and drawn out, these are short and violent, but they are also stoppable. When these two trolls are convinced that they are in a Descellegiance, they will be able to end their Kismesissitude. However, it is often hard to tell the difference between a potent Kissmelegiance and a light Descellegiance.
Literositude C/C/P/C/P
A troll who is attracted to fictional characters, and can only fulfil sexual desires through fictional literature. This is a quadrant that is prominent in cherubs.
Kissmelegiance Caliginous/Pale
A troll in a Kissmelegiance is compelled by fate to make an enmity with the other participant. This can progress to Kismesissitude or Infinism.
Sedatespriteship C/P/C/P/P/C
A relationship where a troll is the Matesprite or Kismesiss of another troll, without the second troll’s knowledge.
Double Agency Caliginous/Pale/Pale/Caliginous
A Double Agency is when two trolls, who have flushed feelings for one another, both pretend to have black feelings. This tends to happen when the personalities clash, usually competitive trolls. Usually, both trolls will suspect that the other actually has flushed feelings for them but neither is willing to reveal themselves in case their suspicions are wrong.
Interagency C/P/P/C/P/C
A relationship that begins with powerful love but slowly dulls to hate over time.
Erosissitude Pale/Caliginous
The two trolls are compelled by fate to constantly and simultaneously vacilliate, but are both on opposite ends of the spectrum. When one troll feels extreme red feelings, the other will express loathing. They both usually vacilliate at the same moment, meaning that they will never be able to have a stable and reproductive relationship. 
N-way Moirallegiance P/C/P/C/P
A Moirallegiance with an unprecedented number of trolls. Usually ends with one or many Kismesissitudes.
Insurgence Pale/Caliginous/Pale
An Insurgence is a group of four Moiralls that each feel a powerful romantic and protective love for one another that is harmonious and will not end with bloodshed between the Insurgents. However, they are all destined never to have sex or any form of troll reproduction.
Auspinsurgence P/C/P/P
Two sets of Moiralls clash and require a monitor to keep them safe. There I sthe possibility that these two sets of Moiralls are themselves Moiralls. While trolls A and B are Moiralls, and trolls C and D are moiralls, Moirallegiances AB and CD also become moiralls.
Moirallegiance Pale
A couple encouraged by fate to protect one another and ensure stability in the other troll/person’s life.
Stabbance P/P/P/F
If someone is a stabbance, they are a troll that has a fate-given gift of destroying the relationships of others.
Constituency Pale/Pale/Flushed
A Constituency is when one troll in a pair believes that they are the Moirall of another troll, but the second troll does not think that this is a Moirallegiance.
Matestituency P/P/F/P/F
A barrier by fate or destiny that completely blocks two trolls from having a relationship.
Stituency Pale/Flushed
A couple that is formed by defying fate. This can be done by destroying a Moirallegiance in order to form a new relationship or by turning A Kismelegiance into a Moirallegiance. 
Webship P/F/P/F/F/P
A relationship that can only remain stable when it takes place online. This can function through pesterlogs or trollian.
Envelopment Pale/Flushed/Flushed/Pale
An Envelopment is when a troll intentionally does not reveal their true feelings on who they have powerful red or black feelings for, because they do not want to cause conflict with an existing Matesprite or Kismesiss.
Masquerade P/F/F/P/F/P
A Masquerade is when two trolls can only have a stable relationship through roleplay.
Philiasma Flushed/Pale
A Philiasma is when, due to outside intervention, a Kissmelegiance or Erosissitude is broken. When a Moiraillegiance is formed, it becomes unbreakable. The status of this love becomes unconditional and cannot do anything but grow stronger.
Fatespriteship F/P/F/P/F
A scenario in which a trolls A and B are in a Kismesissitude, C and D are in a Matespriteship. Both of these relationships are destroyed, sometimes by a Stabbance. A will pair with C or D and B will pair with the troll that A does not pair with.
Counter Philiasma Flushed/Pale/Flushed
This is a situation that is just as rare, if not more rare than an Infimositude, because when one person in a Philiasma dies, the other usually commits suicide immediately. However, when the living troll does not kill themselves, they will always withdraw from the troll romance system entirely and have feelings only of depression and apathy until they die.
Laytherithm F/P/F/F
When troll A is flushed for troll B, but troll B is black for troll A and flushed for troll C. Troll C Is black for troll B and flushed for troll D. Troll D is black for troll C and flushed for troll E. There is a possibility of the Laytherithm linking into a circle, where Troll E would be flushed for troll A but troll A would be black for troll E, or they can end on their own.

This is a summary of college only using two pictures; expensive as hell.

That’s my Sociology “book”. In fact what it is is a piece of paper with codes written on it to allow me to access an electronic version of a book. I was told by my professor that I could not buy any other paperback version, or use another code, so I was left with no option other than buying a piece of paper for over $200. Best part about all this is my professor wrote the books; there’s something hilariously sadistic about that. So I pretty much doled out $200 for a current edition of an online textbook that is no different than an older, paperback edition of the same book for $5; yeah, I checked. My mistake for listening to my professor.

This is why we download. 

Spreading this shit like nutella because goddamn textbooks are so expensive. 

not necessarily art related but as someone who couldn’t afford their textbooks this semester this is a godsend

REBLOGGING because after a little digging, I found my $200 textbook for free in PDF form.

friendly reminder that this exists since I know we’re all going back to college soon

what if we just created a fandom for a tv show that doesn’t exist and we build it up really big and make a ton of inside jokes until the internet just accepts it as a real show and it starts getting included in polls and gets it’s own imdb page and a group of outsiders go crazy trying to find dl links

let’s do this guys

There’s even an opening sequence omg

Guys, please I need your help. I know this isn’t Disneyland or DisneyWorld. It’s my dream college. I want to go to FIlm school, I want to become a director and it’s been my dream to become one. I have so much passion for film making It’s ridiculous. My dream college is over 1,101 miles away from where I live. At first my mother and I were not on the same perspective. She thought I was crazy and would never make it. However, the college called me and found interest in what I can do! I knew that was my chance, so I spoke to my mother again, and unfortunately she hardly agreed this time either. Then I thought of Tumblr, we got a kid to go to DIsneyland, and heck we got a girl a bird! So why not college? If this can get to over 100k notes she says she’ll get one step closer in letting me attend my dream college! I know this might be asking a lot but please help me show my mom that I can make it and chase after my dreams! One reblog can help so much! xx
