For everyone’s needs. Because somehow there isn’t already one (that I know of) and that’s ridiculous.
This list is mainly focused on lower blood vocab as well, since in cases where high blood and low blood vocab differs, high blood vocab tends to be just straight English(ablution trap vs. bathtub).
If you see a word that you know that is missing, add it and a definition, if a solid definition is known. If it’s a more vague term that does not have a known canon meaning (for example: nook), then simply leave it as a term, and maybe give a context (Nook: Body part, perhaps sexual).
Also, please. Only canon vocab. Don’t add your own personal terms. Make sure what you add was actually in the comic, please.
Also, if you have a link to where it is used handy, by all means! Link to it so people can see it used in context.
So there you go! Circulate it, and when a good list gets going, I can post it to my livejournal so that there is a solid link that people can go to.
Because I know that I as a writer would love a list, and I imagine that others would too.
And go! Add what you don’t see on here! Add a category if you feel it’s needed! I just put up a few, but feel free to edit/etc.
Think pan: The brain
Bone bulge: A sexual organ of some sort
Nook: Likely to be a sexual organ, but could be otherwise
Chitinous windhole: Trachea/windpipe
Protein chute: Esophagus
Auricular sponge clots: Organ in the ear(?)
Autoerogenous shame globe: Likely a sexual organ
Respiteblock: Private room
Ablution trap: Bathtub
Recuperacoon: Troll equivalent to a bed; a container of a fluid called sopor slime, which helps with sleep.
Sopor Slime: Helps calm trolls to sleep; should not be consumed
Lusus/Lusi: Troll equivalent to guardians
Imperial Drones: Guys who come to get troll genetic material
Mother Grub: Mother of all trolls; combines all genetic material brought to her to create grubs
Grubs: Baby trolls
This is an excellent idea! I’d like to add a few more:
Cartilage nub: nose? (No idea. Thoughts?)
Lobe stem: brain stem
Phlegm lobe: no clue, but Karkat does mention his throbbing phlegm lobe once
Seedflap: a sex organ of some sort
Collapsing and expanding bladder based aquatic vascular system: heart (probably sea dweller-specific)
Communal hive stem: apartment building
Thermal hull: refrigerator
Nutrition plateau: plate
Whirling device: fan
One wheel device: unicycle
Three wheel device: tricycle
Four wheel device: wheelchair
Wiggler: young troll kids (presumably when they possesslimbs, as opposed to a grub) (Note: a troll’s birthday is called a wriggling day, but they are called wigglers, not wrigglers!)
Carpenter droids: robots that facilitate a hive’s building process
Threshecutioners: one of the Empress’s lethal brigades and, indeed, one of the most lethal members in society. Weapon: sickles.
Laughsassins: one of the Empress’s lethal brigades.
Cavalreapers: one of the Empress’s lethal brigades. Weapon: lances. The Summoner rose up through the ranks of the Cavalreapers, assuming command of the army, which would lead a rebellion. Tavros one day hopes to be recruited as a Cavalreaper and practices his jousting just in case.
Ruffiannihilators: one of the Empress’s lethal brigades. A STRONG and honorable class.
Archeradicators: one of the most noble echelon the imperial forces have to offer, according to Equius. Weapon: bows and arrows.
Subjugglators: exceptionally brutal enforcers of the hemospectrum in troll society to whom the Empress delegated oppression. One of the highest castes, as even bluebloods are beneath them. Gamzee is a descendant of one of the high subjugglators, the Grand Highblood.
Legislacerators: prosecuting attornies who conduct investigations and seek to bring evil-doers to justice, which is brought about by executing them by hanging. Redglare was a legislacerator who was hung by her own noose, intended for Mindfang.
Gamblignants: deadly marauders of ancient times with a passion for chance. They all died off because they took too many risks, however.
FLARP: Fatal Live-Action Roleplaying, or extreme roleplaying
S’all I can think of at the moment, but I might have more to add later!
I just wanted to throw out a couple other terms I just remembered… Not much, but hey, they’re there if you need them!
Matriorb: an egg that hatches a new Mother Grub, responsible for bearing trolls’ young. Kanaya extricated a matriorb from inside of her lusus, a virgin Mother Grub who relinquished her calling as a matriarch to raise Kanaya
Trollbraille: Braille, which Terezi says she has no use for, because she can smell and taste words
Grubloaf: food that is presumably similar to a regular loaf of bread, as it has been described as “fresh” and “leavened.”
Grubtube: the troll equivalent of Youtube, according to Vriska
Game Grub: a magazine that is the troll version of Game Bro
The site was down for a few days there, but we are back. The server is located in New York City, which lost power due to a hurricane. The server people at Internap did a nice job getting everything back on line quickly with generator power, despite the major problems the city is having. If you live in the affected areas, I hope life will return to normal for you very soon. When things like this happen, I think our first impulse should be to help out. Let’s consider doing that!
The MINISTRIFE (which was going to drop on 10/31 but oh well) is chock full of sprite characters made by Feastings. Most of them were done a while ago and started floating around the tumblrverse as a little fandom craze, so I asked her to make a few more and now POOF they’re all magically canon. Thank you Feastings. Also UU art as always supplied kindly by Shelby. Song = Killed by BR8K Spider!!!!!!!! by Radiation. “Who???” I hear you ask. Yes I know, that guy’s music NEVER gets used Homestuck.
Act 6 Act 4 next. Are you ready for it? Are you ready to do some more AWESOME WAITING for it?? I hope so. I’ll try to have something ready by 11/11, which is exactly one year from the start of Act 6 (hey calendar: wtf???) The main issue of uncertainty here is I have to fly down to Florida and sign more than 11,000 prints. I actually have no idea how long that will take. I have no basis of estimation for signing that many things, because I have never signed that many things before. But the sooner I do it, the sooner we can ship out all your sweet Kickstarter loot. It must be done. I’ll try to get whatever work done I can around this crazy mission. An 11K heap of large prints is actually so much paper, we’re not sure if we can keep it all in the same room, because it might actually cause the floor to collapse. True safety facts.
