I've updated the height chart a little, more specifically, I've notched Feferi's freakish height down a little. She's still really tall, but she doesn't tower over Gamzee now.
...Well, she does, but not as much.

If you want to see the old version, you can find it here!

RE: Transfusion (Bloodswap AU)
Minor bump, but I've got all the planets sorted! And by sorted I mean it's easily subject to change if I so feel like it, and by if I feel like it, I mostly mean if you guys have any better suggestions! Check if out here if you so desire!

And because I feel like it, I'm going to put up a brief 'to-do' list here, just so you guys know what else to expect on this thread in the coming, days, weeks, months even? Who even knows.

-I'm working on a group memo not unlike these ones. I'm definitely planning to include trolls of all blood colours for the sole purpose of demonstrating all of their personalities and stuff for you guys, though I probably will refrain from having one memo with all twelve trolls and instead two or three with handfuls of them.
-Once I'm finally fully satisfied with the Land titles, I'm planning on making some concept art for how they'd appear, what the environment would be like, et cetera. I don't know if I can guarantee whole planet views, but a picture or two worthy of some strange alien tourist brochure would be nice. Basically, this, not this, solely because I have no earthly idea how to accomplish the latter.
-At some point I'd really like to make actual Homestuck-styled sprites of the Bloodswapped trolls. Probably not a top priority of mine, but it's on there.
-Actually writing down a synopsis for how their session would go, I feel like that'd be an interesting exercise. It'd take a bit of time, obviously, but I feel like it'd make the Bloodswap really feel complete.
-I'd absolutely love to make some panel edits at some point. Nothing major, but some fun little edits here and there. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

And hey, if there's any other ideas for things you'd like to see, just lemme know and I'll definitely consider it! I'm definitely really excited and proud to be working on this, that's for sure.

RE: Transfusion (Bloodswap AU)
Right, I've finally gotten around to writing brief descriptions of the natures of the planets in the game. I've updated the post here, but in case you don't want to see all the way back, here's all the new bios!

Land of Pillars and Instability.
Abbreviated to LOPAI; Gamzee's planet. While the planet might not be all that old in terms of planetary bodies, it certainly does appear like it had been worn down over centuries' worth of battles. The reason being? Earthquakes, thunderstorms, tsunamis, all sorts of natural disasters occur all the time with unpredictable abandon. The only things that stand strong against the forces of nature are the pillars constructed by the planet's consorts, for some strange reason they will never topple down. The problem is, whatever the pillars are holding up don't share the same immunity. It's a constant battle of construction against destruction.

Land of Locks and Labyrinths.
Abbreviated to LOLAL; Vriska's planet. LOLAL is a very, as you may have guessed, maze-themed planet. Twists and turns of all sorts line the whole planet, on multiple altitudes as well. Ladders are provided for traversing through the more vertical segments of the three-dimensional labyrinth. There are almost countless locked walls blocking various pathways, some that would theoretically lead to the core of the planet, some that would lead to villages of consorts, and some that would simply lead to dead ends. Keys are often hoarded by enemies, most commonly imps, so you had better gather up a rack of keys from destroying enemies, or just alchemise some keys out of grist. Whatever works. Rumour has it that a hulk of a monster lies in the center, having failed to escape the labyrinth for millenia. But that's a load of bullshit, right?

Land of Vortex and Boiling.
Abbreviated to LOVAB; Eridan's planet. The heat is practically unbearable here, that is, unless you happen to have the willingness to power through it all. Gigantic pits surround the whole planet full of bubbling lava that will melt your face off if you're not careful. Pretty easy, right? Just don't step in it. That is, if you can resist the powerful pull of the various black hole-esque vortexes that spawn every now and then that attempt to pull you inside. The physics of this world are truly questionable, though those who live here are usually far more occupied with not giving in to the pull.

Land of Dusk and Refraction.
Abbreviated to LODAR; Equius' planet. A planet eternally basked in sunset, the already dark-coloured monsters are now even more silhouetted by the setting sun that will never sink beneath the horizon. Layers of water are often floating in mid-air to re-direct beams of light cast by the sun setting over the hills in the distance, mostly used for puzzles. This is a very puzzle-themed planet, so logical thinkers will have a blast here.

Land of Sympathy and Altitude.
Abbreviated to LOSAA; Terezi's planet. Consorts are everywhere. In fact, the consorts on this planet have the most advanced civilisation the RNG of the game has to offer. Entire underground cities have advanced to the equivalent of countries, continents, even. However, there are often large groups of consorts missing at any point in time, mostly because large fractions of the cities and countries are busy exploring the very mountainous regions that lie above the ground. Everything is social, here, they even have their own social networks. They are very close with each other and will always practically sell their limbs away just to cheer each other up. Of course, they do tend to go a bit far with these expressions of sympathy and will sometimes be rather annoying about it despite their good intentions. But isn't there a mountain that no consort has climbed as of yet? Like the tallest one of all, for example? None have dared to even think about reaching the summit of that one. Maybe that can change...

Land of Bells and Ribbons.
Abbreviated to LOBAR; Feferi's planet. A very bright and cheerful planet, large towers cover the surface, more often than not with a huge bell resting atop and connected to three other towards via colourful ribbons. It creates a whole network of belltowers that are just begging to be set off all at once, but what for...?

Land of Pythons and Frogs.
Abbreviated to LOPAF; Sollux's planet. An incredibly swampy type of area, it is just crawling with all sorts of pythons and frogs (which are apparently useful for some reason?? Hell if anyone knows why). The pythons and frogs aren't consorts, no, but they do serve some important purpose in the game or whatever. Like something to distract you from the fact that you're probably sinking in a pile of mud with the properties of quicksand. Yeah, exactly like that. Frog temples are scattered in random locations for whatever reason, but most of them have been overrun and vandalised by those rascal pythons. Damn you, pythons.

Land of Gemstones and Pits.
Abbreviated to LOGAP; Kanaya's planet. On the surface it might not appear like anything other than a dusty old planet full of craters. Those craters, though, lead to intricate cave systems with all sorts of colourful gemstones just begging to be dug out. The only problem being that the planet is basically entirely trapped. Hidden pitfalls are everywhere and one has to really watch their step around here, lest they fall even deeper down and possibly break an arm from chasing after a pretty jewel.

Land of History and Dust.
Abbreviated to LOHAD; Tavros' planet. As Tavros is a Time player, his planet houses the Scratch Construct of their session: a gigantic phonograph with an expansive library as a base. Chances are, you'll see several tumbleweeds bouncing along the ground, because this place is old. Old. A whole civilisation has come and gone before Tavros had arrived, with only ancient runes and scriptures left to mark what had happened. Experienced Time players will be able to time travel back to actually change history in order to solve puzzles in the present. Plant a tree all those years ago? Have a mongoloidal tree towering over all in the present all of a sudden. You begin to steadily melt away at the glaciers all those years ago? The planet is suddenly much more aquatic-themed than it was before. Of course, that's experienced players with a mastery of their skills, the real test is what Tavros will do with the idea of altering history as he knows it.

Land of Inversion and Torches.
Abbreviated to LOIAT; Karkat's planet. This is a planet where the clouds are made of water, the oceans of the planet are made of clouds, tree trunks grow out from the leafy bushes on the group in a reversal of concepts as we know them. When the sun comes out, it's as chilly as can be despite how bright it is, but the moon darkening the planet could give you a tan. And curiously, there are torches planted everywhere. In the ground, on the walls, hanging from the 'clouds' up above, that always shine a vibrant red. Perhaps there's a secret to the odd way this world behaves that lies in the beast rumoured to eternally orbit around the planet. ...Backwards. It's flying backwards.

Land of Sprouts and Mist.
Abbreviated to LOSAM; Nepeta's planet. The planet is basically one giant lake, lined with lily pads that always have a tiny little sprout on the ends of them. Navigation can be pretty difficult when you can't see where you're going, the whole place is surrounded in a thick fog that stops you from seeing clearly past two feet in front of you. Rivers and waterfalls and rocks and rapids are everywhere inside this huge lake, small islands hosting tribes of consorts that worship these mysterious sprouts that never seem to grow.

Land of Glaciers and Ruins.
Abbreviated to LOGAR; Aradia's planet. It's an arctic wasteland here on LOGAR, though it's hard to tell whether the ice was here before or after whatever rapture rid the place of most of the creatures that lived here beforehand. Whatever case, small, abandoned cities of consorts remain just barely surviving against the cold. It's cold, it's lonely, it's isolated. There's always a sense of dread hanging over everybody here, though it's impossible to tell exactly what's to happen next. All that remain are remnants of the past. Fossils are really commonly trapped inside huge ice cubes that are to be fished from under the water.


EDIT: Oh, also also!

I've got some basic sprite traces for what I figure the final bloodswapped sprites would look like. It's traces, mostly, but hopefully this will help out with the proportions of the final sprites.
(Also hopefully I can make the sprites based off of these drawings instead of editing the original sprites because the shoddy, clustered pixelwork of the original sprites irks me to this day.)

RE: Transfusion (Bloodswap AU)
So, as some of you may or may not have noticed (I have no idea how many of you were spying on Eridan's quote in particular,) but Eridan is a very avid comma user.
However, I do kind of feel like it's not absolutely 100% fitting, especially when you take into consideration the only reason he has commas was because of Tavros, who also uses commas from time to time (though not to the point of overuse like his bronze-blooded self). So I was wondering something.

Should Eridan keep his comma usage completely intact, have it downgraded to normal punctuation, or have all of his commas replaced with periods?

I'm curious about your thoughts on the matter so don't be shy with your opinions, here!

RE: Transfusion (Bloodswap AU)
Hey, long time no update. Not to worry, though, I'm still working on concepts and ideas and such! Not only those, but much earlier than I intended:

I've sprited the lowbloods of the group! These were drawn over these sketches, so they're not exactly edits, per se. As logic would dictate, the highbloods are coming soon!
