Your name is Eridan Ampora, and there are times when you really hate being a SEA DWELLER.

A Homestuck MS Paint Fan Adventure created by ckret2. Currently updating once more after a long hiatus.

In which a sea dwelling lowblood troll who would be considered a highblood in an Alternate Universe where the Sufferer's revolution had not succeeded engages in shenanigans in order to fill his non-pale quadrants; has various redrom tension with a ship-happy highblood Archeradicator who shares his love of Troll Disney sing-a-longs but may want to replace the sea-dweller's witch of a moirail; and engages in lopsided blackrom tension with the Imperious Grand Advisier, who may or may not develop black feelings to match the main character's.

Also features: a gold blood hacker who attempts suicide and haunts the royal hive of Her Imperious Condecension, bringing back into the open red feelings between the two of them; a lowblood junkyard worker with sweat issues explores but mostly denies his caliginous feelings for a sopor-addicted subjugglator who is the friend of a First Guardian and a robo-legged gold blood; a turgid backstory is hinted at which involves several previously mentioned characters in addition to another lowblood with sinister motives; the aforementioned nefarious lowblood is revealed to be in cahoots with a coalition of sea dwellers hoping to create a class uprising; the love between lusii is explored and interspersed for comedic effect; and the periodic love affairs of a jade-blooded Luxplorer are thrown in for romantic intrigue.

> Eridan: Do something epic.

You wish you could stay long enough to get a song in, but you have to get back to your fire-breathing cold-blooded murderous monster. And your dragon.


You know you cannot do it. You cannot kill Nepeta. You cannot even hurt her.

    • The Psiioniic's desperate pleading with the Sufferer to come back and save him becomes, in the space of two panels, IM A SHIIIIIIIIP
  • Near-Death Experience: Karkat
  • No Medication for Me: Since society believes sopor pills are necessary for lowbloods to be mentally stable, those who go without fall into this category. The most prominent examples are Eridan, Vriska, and Cuvier.
  • Noodle Incident: Although the readers have been given hints about what went down, we still don't know what exactly happened during this world's version of "Make her pay."
    • Word of God says it may be part of a hypothetical upcoming [S] page.
  • Not a Date: Eridan and Nepeta go on one, with him thinking it's a date and her not realizing it.
  • Overdrawn At the Blood Bank: The author's stance is that all trolls have this and most injuries and deaths leave a horrid mess, but the cake has to go to Gamzee, who basically paints the whole room purple before passing out.

Narrator: There is blood on the floor. Blood on the walls. Blood on HIM, oh, God, there is more blood outside Karkat than you [Sollux] knew he had inside him.

  • Pailing For Services: Cuvier pails with Eridan in exchange for Ahab's Crosshairs. Neither remembers the encounter after, leading to a pleasant shock for Cuvier and an unpleasant one for Eridan when they wake up.
  • Parody Sue: Hakuba Dahaag. Unlike most Sue parodies, though, some of her actions are actually portrayed as creepy and annoying. She's somewhat a Deconstruction of the character type.
  • Pity Epiphany: Equius and Tavros both have one, in regards to each other.
  • Poor Communication Kills: "Your life seems to be fueled by stupid little misunderstandings that could be cleared up with five minutes of conversation."
  • Precision F-Strike: Equius, of all people, drops one when he realizes that he pities Tavros.
  • Refuge in Audacity: Invoked by Vriska: Tell the truth.
  • Rewarded as a Traitor Deserves: Ioudas betrayed the Sufferer to the subjugglators and was, in turn, betrayed by them.
  • Right Man in the Wrong Place: A lot of stuff derives from Eridan happening to be in Karkat's room just at the right time.
  • Running Gag: Be the Sea Dweller Lowblood. We always try to be the wrong sea dweller. Taken to absolutely ridiculous levels starting here. We go through almost every sea dweller we've seen before getting to the right one.
    • And even after being given an extremely precise description of Eridan, we still screw it up.
    • Recently, we keep trying to be a place or planet, such as Troll Mexico or Alternia. The narrator keeps reminding us that we can be on a planet or in that area, but we can't be a planet itself.
  • Shadow Archetype: Eridan & Karkat. Eridan fails in redrom because he's never really pitied anyone but himself. Karkat fails in blackrom because he's never hated anyone more than himself. Then there's the whole mess of status and social isolation issues mirrored between them.
  • Shipper on Deck/Love Chart: The point of Nepeta's shipping wall is to showcase this. She even ships Sollux/Aradia/Tavros as an OT3.
    • In a play on this, Sollux wants to get Karkat/Eridan back together after torpedoing it in the first place. Even though he's not entirely sure that's the best thing to do, or why he keeps thinking of 'ships', for that matter...
  • Ship Tease: For all of the pairings. All of them.
  • Shout-Out: Several, including
  • So What Do We Do Now?: Terezi, after having apprehended Vriska, mentions how she was treating life like a FLARPing game about justice rather than carrying out her duty as a legislacerator, and isn't sure what to do now that she's caught her target.
  • Space Romans: Played Straight with Troll Canada and Troll Britain. Subverted with Troll Mexico.
  • Spurned Into Suicide: After failing to kill Nepeta, Eridan decides to do this. He seems hesitant and not quite willing to go through with it, though.
  • Stalker Shrine: Admittedly, Karkat and Terezi have a very good reason for collecting as much data on Vriska as possible, but the fact that their "Vriska file" is driven as much by romantic hate as it is by a desire to arrest her makes this qualify.
  • Stripperiffic: Sharpeye Sharklaw and his fabulous Leotard of Power is a hilarious male parody of this trope.
  • "Take That!" Kiss: Terezi kissed Karkat and started up their matespritship just to spite Vriska.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Karkat is a magnet for these. Given his own self-loathing, they frequently turn him on.
  • There Is Another: There are three characters with RED 6L99D. Two of them are hiding this, so the only publicly known one is Karkat.
  • They Died Because of You: Karkat is extremely upset about Sollux's death, blaming it on their last conversation.
  • Thousand-Yard Stare: While visiting the hospital, Karkat gets one upon discovering his blood somehow retained its candy-red color despite his recent transfusion of green blood, which should have left it temporarily muted and mixed.
  • Title Drop: Used several times as a command, often correlates with a Running Gag.
  • Training from Hell: Threshecutioner training. Because she is a sea dweller, Rhosyn ended up having to repeat it twelve times before she would be allowed to join their ranks.
  • Triang Relations: All over the place, but the Nepeta - Erdian - Feferi triangle is probably the most significant. It's a type 4 for moirallegiance; Nepeta -> Erdian <-> Feferi. It's complicated by an overlapping matespritship triangle. Erdian feels unrequited matespritship towards Nepeta, and Nepeta wants to break up Erdian & Feferi as moirails by shifting them to being matesprits.
  • Twice Shy: Equius and Tavros both have flushed feelings for each other, but neither of them can work up the nerve to tell the other. Tavros is afraid Equius will only accept his feelings because he feels that he has to since he's lower than Tavros on the hemospectrum; Equius is afraid to tell Tavros because he doesn't consider himself worthy and pursuing a matespritship with a gold blood would be inappropriate.
  • Twitchy Eye: Rhosyn develops one upon receiving a totally random hatesnog from Karkat.
  • Two Lines, No Waiting: Many characters have plot points that interlink with each other. This means a lot of perspective switching whist times halts for characters off screen.
    • In fact, due to this, Eridan has spent all of the second thread in Karkat's room. The author joked that if he was still there when the thread ends, she would rename the adventure to "Karkat's Roomstuck."
    • It may be Third Line, Some Waiting, especially considering how frantically ckret2 was scrambling to resolve all plot threads and get all characters somewhere they could be expected to stay a while without doing anything interesting before the end of thread 4 and not allowing any immediate commands for other plotlines.
  • The Undead: Sollux. He does at least seem happier as a ghost.
  • Unfortunate Implications: In-universe, the troll verison of The Little Mermaid is quite racist to sea dwellers.
  • Unresolved Sexual Tension / Will They or Won't They?: Many, but Eridan/Nepeta and Sollux/Aradia are the big ones. At this point, both are pretty much resolved. Eridan/Nepeta is sunk in both red quadrants, and Sollux/Aradia seems to be working despite Sollux being a ghost.
  • Unusual Dysphemism: A therapist is also known as a "pale prostitute."
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Type 2 with Karkat and Sollux, like in canon. Tavros tries to act as their auspistice despite the fact that neither Karkat nor Sollux really hate each other.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Cordis Jocure. Killed on the page immediately following his introduction page.
  • Wham! Episode: Everybody: DO THE SUPER AWESOME SINGY THING. (Not that particular page, but the scene as a whole).
  • What Did I Do Last Night?: In the fifth thread, Eridan wakes up with a killer hangover and no memory of the drunken shenanigans he engaged in, who he was with, or what happened to his weapon.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Feferi is not pleased when she learns Nepeta Moirail-Zoned her Moirail.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: Eridan and Nepeta (the former out of necessity, the latter for fun)
  • Why Fandom Can't Have Nice Things: ckret2 posts a poll to determine which character is shown next. Options are tied for quite a while, then one choice suddenly takes over. ckret2 decides foul play is involved, takes neither popular option, and stops with the polls.

"There is no way that many people have voted, MUCH LESS that it stayed that perfectly tied for so long, MUCH LESS that the votes suddenly jumped up for one side that much. I KNOW there were some people who voted specifically to make it balance out, rather than vote for what they actually WANTED. Some of y'all in here admitted that. Clearly, someone else is spamming Vriska now. Fuck this shit. You're not getting Vriska or Kanaya. You're especially not getting Vriska, since it's at least confirmable that there is somebody cheating in her favor, if not that there are folks cheating in both's favor...Way to go! We're never having a vote again."
