I see so many people wanting John Egbert to be Crocker John. It’s a great and scary concept and all, but all I could think of was…
She can’t have him.
No one can.
You see, he’s not like the other characters. No one can have John Egbert. That’s his role. Ever since the beginning of Homestuck
John has always been the steadfast most annoyingly difficult to control character, and even the almighty Condesce and Caliborn himself can’t control him.
He is mastered by no demon, no elder god, no omnipotent doggies friendly or otherwise, and certainly no fish queen. John Egbert is, as of now, the one truly free character in all of Homestuck, held back only by his love for his friends and no weaker bonds.
I think that’s what being an Heir of Breath means. Heirs become and are their aspect, and Breath is the aspect of freedom. He is like the wind- uncontrollable. No one will ever have John Egbert. You can ‘catch’ wind in a jar, but at that point, it’s not wind, is it? John is, as said before, the one truly free character in Homestuck. He is freedom.
