ThIs IsN't Me by Octeapi ThIs IsN't Me by Octeapi



Yes.. The Homestuck bug has bitten me once more. So here is another image about my head canon for Gamzee. Where It is kinda like a separate self that shoves the kind good hearted Gamzee we know away. Hidden behind a mask of cruelty the Highblood that we all know him to be hidden inside that clown mask of his.
It is like a split personality in my head you could say, that can be reflected in hsi behavior.. ugh I don't think I am explaining this right. But in any case...~!

In this image it is kinda like on the left Gamzee is trying desperately to claw his way out of that room to get to his friends that he is killing and can't seem to do anything about. And on the other side is the murderous self that he has lost control of, merely talking and toying with some of that Special Stardust that they so love.

Gamzee and Tarvos belong to the creator of Homestuck.

All art belongs to me.
If you want to use it please at least credit me and send me a link. I have no issue with it being used, just as long as you inform me that you are going to~.

Thank ya~!

I agree with this headcanon ^^
I always thought he stayed "high" to keep his other-personality drowned out otherwise very bad things would happen....the reason Equius has a broken horn, Gamzee's last sober-fest.

I hate to post one of my shitty headcannons on this wonderful piece of art but I have a theory that because of the soper slime and being around Caliope and Caliborn plus mind control, in a way gave him a bipolar, MPD problem.

I agree with you there. Hence why i think this headcanon of mine appeared.
To me Gamzee is just a troll got dealt a bad hand in everything; I myself am also a believer that evil is not born, it is created. 
I suppose for me, I just project that kind of thinking onto him when it comes to his actions and behaviors. Just a little grub lashing out a unfair world. (though perhaps not through the best means of doing so, but what can ya do <T)

It's interesting... I had looked at your art and wondered if there was a story behind it to go along, or explain a bit. Tickle me happy, there is! It kind of helped clear things up, although I still don't quite understand your initial explanation, butt I think I get the gist of what your saying. Anyway, it's a really good piece of art! What program do you use (just out of curiosity, you shouldn't feel obligated to answer me *U*)

Whenever I see people's works like these I just whisper "Poor baby..." because I just can't imagine the pain he goes through on either side of the mirror, and the same thought must be going through their heads almost every minute of the day... "This isn't me..."

I agree with you there, the idea that he could go from this adorable lovable clown to a destructive murderous troll was just.. hard for me to wrap my head around. I guess that is kinda where this headcanon came in for me.
