More doodles of that Tarzan wild-child AU thing. God, whatevers next, copying screencaps? (hint: yes) This is a thing that is happening.
God I love historical costume though, Rose in a bustle dress! She’s trying to brush out Jade’s hair by the way, make her (and Jake) fit to bring back to England/America/wherever.

I’ll come back for you i whisper as i caress the books i can’t afford
I don’t use the term “moirail” lightly. It means more than just shiny happy friendship. It’s the friendship that means more, the kind that is obligatory (and not in a negative way). It’s the bond you feel with someone that you are proud to have, that you feel not only a commitment to uphold but a drive. You will not only listen to them, you will do everything you can to help them. You worry about their well-being and want only the best for them. Moirailegance is almost like family in how concrete it is. It’s in the blood, the bond, the chemistry. It’s an energy you feel.
The above description is perfect and applicable to the real world. And it’s true, in the end it’s just a word, but it’s a perfect word for a strong bond I have always felt but haven’t been able to label.
On a slightly unrelated note, I also believe you can have more than one moirail throughout your life. There are people you find in life that you feel this energy with, people who you want to protect and vice-versa.
This, a thousand times this.
Homestuck describes moirails as ‘two partners [who] will serve to balance and complement each other’s emotional profiles, and thus allow their other relationships to be more successful.’
I call my moirail ‘moirail’ because this is a thing she does. She balances and complements me. She evens me out. I am, occasionally, a danger to myself (and others), and she serves as a buffer between me and the rest of the world when I’m falling apart. I need her like some people need to breathe.
I don’t need to be with her in a romantic sense and I’m not in the least bit jealous of the relationship she has with her fiance, but our relationship transcends simple ‘friendship’, and I probably would be jealous if she tried to maintain something on this level with anyone but me. She keeps me from losing my mind. She is my perfectly platonic soulmate, and I really can’t imagine life without her.
And yes, I only have one.
Just because it’s an Alternian term doesn’t mean it can’t be applied in real life. Yes, I agree that some people take it too far - just because you’re best bros doesn’t mean you’re moirails - but some people also are ‘in love’ with celebs and stuff. Just because some people misunderstand and abuse the word doesn’t mean it can’t be used in real-life situations and still mean what it does in the world of Homestuck.
(I mean, technically matespritship is pity, not love, and kismesitude is rivalry more than hate. but all of these things are things that we can understand. Just because we don’t get culled if we don’t have our quadrants satisfied doesn’t mean we can’t understand the true definition of what each quadrant means and/or apply it to RL.)
