'because thats all i fucking do'

This won’t quit nagging at me, so I’m just gonna go ahead and gently lay this here:

With the reveal of uu’s name as ‘Caliborn,’ there’s been a lot of neat stuff surfacing, mainly in terms of ‘Caliborn’ as either an alternate name for Excalibur or as the name of an entirely different sword, namely the one that Arthur had to pull from the stone in order to prove that he da bes/the rightful king of England and eventual founder of the Knights of the Round Table. This then gets tied to Dave, in regards to his role as the Knight of Time, and this series of posts sets it out pretty neatly.

Okay, so Caliborn’s moniker is a sweet sword. Dig?

Now here’s another tie-in to Dave, which I found pretty interesting: Dude breaks swords.

It’s not just a gag. It’s part of his personal quest in Sburb, and Davesprite explicitly mentions it here:

and stresses it in the same conversation

(‘It’ here being nothing much, just, hey, a literal sword. In a stone. Called ‘Caledfwlch,’ which is another name for ‘Excalibur.’ HMM.)

and Dave mentions it again here:

Now, I don’t think Dave alone is going to kill Caliborn and/or Lord English, despite the multiple references to ‘drop[ping] it like it’s hot whilst the pimp’s in the crib' as LE appears to be portrayed as the hustler pimpdaddy of the cosmos. First of all, LE apparently can’t be killed. (But if you look a little further in the same convo, ‘destroyed’ might still be an option.) Second, I don’t think Homestuck is that kind of story, which is to say that to me, it’s a glorious fuckin mess of causality and little things adding up and especially teamwork, and one kid doing a take-down of the big bad just doesn’t jive. I do think he’s going to be instrumental (see: entire rest of this post); I just have no idea how.

But hey, if something like this happens

I’m not gonna complain.
