it was one year ago today that the fandom received a very shocking revelation
look how far we’ve come kids
I was so invested in the uu/UU mystery and this update blew my mind. Never forget
based on ==> [S] Jane: Enter.
tbh this is literally my most terrifying shoot yet because I was standing on a very thin rooftop ledge (hello, plunging down to my doom!). My legs were actually shaking the entire time. But it’s worth it, because this photo is fabulous. ♥
Super thanks to my friends for humoring me with this shoot, especially since we had to take it three times because I was simply not satisfied with how it turned out initially (I was all “No! We have to recreate the scene exactly as it is!!!” every time we got down to review the photos). Thank you SO MUCH for putting up with me, especially since you guys aren’t Homestuck fans. You guys are the best.
what a great roxy and what a great photo
— Complete Deobfuscation of Rose’s Text!!! —
WE DID IT! WE CLEANED IT UP!!!?!
I still can’t believe it. That reddit suggestion for singling out the parts of it that were exactly the text color of Rose within a threshold was good, but I thought they could have done a better job of typing over it, and it turns out you could get a VERY precise account of certain letters whether or not their pixels overlapped with the white in the background! Building on our initial theorywork, I merged every frame of the gif, used some text filters, then got the help of the MSPA Clubhouse Chat to figure out the words that fit without violating the pixels and: BLAM. Two hours later, look at this beautiful, beautiful thing.
(We’re probably going to get the other side of this log in a few days and it’ll all have been for nothing :P )
Thanks to LegendaryQ, whitehelm, Zircean, CyclopsCaveman, and slovenlysine/Brumathan (the latter’s their forum name), and I believe I’ve shown I’ve done enough work myself too. :)
