This is Sarah.
You may know her better as Scarvenrot, creator of the wildly popular Homestuck fan adventure Guidestuck.
Yeah, something like that.
Anyway, you’re probably wondering why I used a sad photo of her for this post. See, she hasn’t really been feeling too good recently. She is getting really stressed out and depressed at a lot of things, and has consequentially taken a hiatus from Guidestuck while she sorts some things out.
Now, this sounds perfectly reasonable, am I right? Unfortunately, there are some mean people out there who have been spamming her with hatred, saying that she is a shitty person for not updating, and claiming that she is faking her depression and is being an asshole for standing up to her detractors. They say she shouldn’t be allowed to take some time for herself, that she should’ve completely devoted to her fans, even to her own detriment.
These things are not true, not in the slightest.
She has been getting exceedingly more agitated as of late, and I fear it may be taking a toll on her that is too much for her to bear. So I would implore you, even if you haven’t heard of her or Guidestuck before, to send her a kind word. Just a friendly hello, a reminder that she is appreciated for all she does, and that she can do whatever she wants, haters be damned.
Sarah, if you read this, rest assured that we all don’t hate you. I’m sure that you can muscle through, and you will come out stronger for it. Keep up the good fight, and I hope you feel better as soon as possible
