Jake isn’t selfish, you idiot: a Homestuck rant

Tex Talks and optimisticDuelist apparently believe that Knights are a passive class and Pages an active one. There are really a lot of reasons I have to disagree with that reading.

This conveniently eliminates almost all of my overriding rules (except the Doom player rule). Thanks to DinceJof for saying this to Archie, who said it to me — if you know where it comes from earlier than that, please let me know.
