    Hahah, I love that Terezi is able to contact Doc Scratch.

    That particular Libra symbol isn't in Terezi's font color. Curious, no?

    Pretty sure it is

    it just looks darker because we're used to seeing it against a black background

    Terezi's is 008081. This fellow's is 166ea0. I checked.

    Maybe not. Maybe the other guardians aren't working for English, but the fact that all guardians cannot be controlled would still extend to them.

    So going through some of Karkat's actions I came across something I didn't notice before.
    This code, when executed, immediately causes the user's computer to explode, and places a curse on the user forever, along with everyone he knows, and everyone he'll ever meet.

    So everybody Karkat knows is now cursed? Including, later on, the kids?

    and this curse kills guardians

    Hussie's too careful for this to be accidental. Gif compression wouldn't ruin Terezi's font color.

    He means Hussie said nothing about whether or not the Guardians are working for English, just that they can't be controlled.

    I... know. I thought you meant that it implied that the other guardians also worked for English, and I didn't think that was necessarily so, that they might just be other Guardians. Maybe you weren't saying that and I was wrong? If so sorry.

    Gif compression did ruin Nepeta's horn colors, though. It wasn't that he forgot to draw them, it was that he didn't save it with enough colors and parts of the horn didn't get their own colors, but approximate colors from elsewhere in the image. Close enough to be imperceptible unless you were looking closely, but still noticeable.

    Then he went back and resaved it with different settings and they showed fine.

    The rules for fizzbin were intended to be complex, so that Kirk could lull his audience into lowering their defenses long enough to be overwhelmed.
    • The game can be played with a standard Earth deck of cards, despite the slightly differing deck on Beta Antares IV.
    • Each player gets six cards, except for the player on the dealer's right, who gets seven.
    • The second card is turned up, except on Tuesdays.
    • Two jacks are a "half-fizzbin".
    • If you have a half-fizzbin:
      • a third jack is a "shralk" and results in disqualification
      • one wants a king and a deuce, except at night, when one wants a queen and a four
      • if a king had been dealt, the player would get another card, except when it is dark, in which case he'd have to give it back.
    • The top hand is a "royal fizzbin", but the odds against getting one are said to be "astronomical".

    No he forgot to draw somebody's horns one other time, I don't remember when.

    He, as in Doc Scratch, doesn't have a screen name. When you see him talk to someone there is no screen name.

    Alright, maybe. Still, the difference is significant enough to be noticeable, and that's got me going on this.

    Yeah, that happened too.


    Anyway, with the GIF, I found where that color was taken from. First frame is the original image, second frame is #166EA0 isolated against a black background.

    foundrs.gif

    With the room having lots and lots of shades (by using a photograph as a base), the GIF compression, saving at 64 colors, was rather selective, thought Terezi's symbol wouldn't lose too much by being shoehorned into that particular color, and shipped it out the door like that.

    Hmm. Wonder if being part of the Medium's game give the players a measure of power over the First Guardian. Thus why Vriska can be almost beating him and why Terezi can contact him despite his communication via typewriter. (this is a ridiculous stretch but what he hell)

    Andrew is well aware of how much his fans can obsess over text color; I don't think he willingly let this one slide, if it is a mistake. More likely he didn't notice anything. If he had, he would surely have fixed it before upload.

    Just because Hussie knows about his fans doesn't mean he molds his actions to accommodate them. Him not doing that is probably the entire reason we still have MSPA and why it's good. He does it because it is fun for him.

    It will be really neat if it is intentional, but it probably is a mistake.
