Ok. For those of you unfamiliar with origami diagrams, dash-dash-dash lines mean valley fold (points away from you) and dash-dot-dash lines mean mountain fold (points towards you). For me, dot-dot-dot lines mean cutting.
For this you’ll need to start with a square of paper and have a pair of scissors, a protractor, and a pencil at the ready. The paper should be either very thin, or as I have it, very large; the ten-point spirograph requires more folds than the eight point.
1: Fold diagonally in half.
2: Fold into quarters as shown.
3: Rotate 45 degrees so that it appears as in the next picture.
4: Use your protractor to mark every 18 degrees as shown.
5: Starting from the open side, fold the top layer only along the marks, alternating between mountain and valley folds.
(It should look like an accordion after that)
6: Flip the whole model horizontally, so that the accordioned flap is on the bottom.
7: Fold the uncreased flap the same way, using the creased flap as a template to guide you.
(FULL ACCORDION! This shows the square unfolded to 1/2.)
8: Compress the accordion as shown in the next picture.
9: You will notice there are inner flaps. You have to cut off the top points, and where you cut should be determined by the innermost flap; try to cut just at the top of that shortest flap. (Flap is a very silly noun.) Also cut off the bottom points as shown.
10: Cut out a triangular section as shown.
11: Another, slightly smaller…
12: Again. In this step and the next cuts be sure to keep an eye on the back side of the model; the paper tends to creep during these cuts, and you could end up severing an important piece if you don’t watch out.
14: You know the drill. (Heheh it looks like a drill I’ll be quiet now)
15: Smaller cuts…
16: Even smaller…
17: OK UNFOLD NOW…
Bam! There it is! A beautiful ten-point spirograph, as seen in Homestuck. Tape them to the ceiling at your Homestuck christmas party! Use them as your tree-skirt!
Blow people’s minds! Put an eight-point spirograph in the middle! Find some green paper for the large one and make a horde of small red ones, tape ‘em together for a wreath! Show me what you do with them! Please! Thanks for reading!

I voiced Her Imperious Condescension and Broadway Jake voiced Dirk. Confused yet? Good <3
Well, well, well, what have we here?
The Prince of Heart, huh?
Oh, I’m really scared
So you’re the human who’s woken up on Derse, ha, ha, ha
You’re joking, you’re joking
Let me see your eyes
You’re joking me, you must be
This can’t be the right guy
He’s anime, he’s yaoi
I don’t know which is worse
I guess I’ll have to knock him off
His highest, princely horse
When the new Black Queen says
You’re going to fail your mission
You should pay attention now
‘Cause I’m the Condescension
And if you aren’t bowing
There’s something very wrong
Because I won’t let you get away
Once you’ve heard the Condesce song,
Obey the Condescension
Well if I’m feeling crafty
And I’ve found that you’re awake
I might just bake a special batch
Of alpha children cake
And don’t you know the dreamer
That makes the whole thing work?
A Crocker cake is not complete without a little Dirk
Oh, yes, I’m the Condescension
You like to think you're the mastermind?
Well /I'm/ alive so /you're/ behind.
Ya can't restrain the Strider bane,
Cuz news flash Pinky, I'm the Brain.
You’re joking, you’re joking
I can’t believe this boy
Lord English, are you hearing this?
This nonsensical ploy
It’s pathetic, it’s tiring
Your blood is just so low
So now, I think it's about time
That I turn you into dough
Every human has this blood color...
I guess that means you all should die then. Ha ha.
On 2x3 prong day
The whole world’s fate was sealed
Because I’m a mean Dersite Queen
And I change the playing field
It’s much more fun, I must confess
When the advantage becomes all mine
I’ll take you all out, one by one
And this game’ll turn out fine
Just abandon your goals
Oh Queen of Trolls
You're on the shit list of the destroyer of souls
Oh, human, you’re something
The facade that you present
Only shows that you just do not know
Who you are up against
It’s worse than you imagine
You haven’t got a prayer
How do you expect to outrun him
When he is already there?
Ha ha ha Good luck~
DIRK Suck my dirk...
FUCK MY LIFE I SPELLED CONDESCENSION WRONG IN THE ORIGINAL POST FUCK FUCK FUCK
I NEED THIS WHERE CAN I DOWNLOAD THIS OH GOD OH LORD eargasm
cries and screams silently and rolls over and screams a little more
it’s not enough that i should love you, you should be me
excuse me while I listen to this over and over and over
Ever since the meetup last November, I had been wanting to go to another one, so I figured, why not host one of my own? It’ll be just a casual Homestuck meetup incorporating the Can Town Project, so if you’ve got some cans of nonperishable food lying around and feel generous, go ahead and bring them! The more cans, the better! I’d love for us to surpass last year’samazing Can Town. Details on the meetup are as follows:
WHERE: At Hemisfair Park (200 S. Alamo, San Antonio, TX 78205), around the wooden playground. It should be near another park called La Villita Park. You’ll know you’re in the right place when you see (at the very least) a god-tier Jade with a WV plushie.This is the general area I’m talking about right here.
WHEN: Saturday, April 14th, 2012, from noon to 6PM, though you can come and go at any time. I actually might be a little early or late depending on how long it takes me to get from my cat feeding area to the park.
WHO’S INVITED: Anyone and everyone who’s a Homestuck fan and lives in or near San Antonio! Heck, if you want to come here from another city nearby, go right ahead. I’m not stopping you! Non-Homestuck fans are encouraged to donate cans, too, though.
IS COSPLAY MANDATORY: Of course not! Though it is certainly encouraged. You don’t have to put on gray makeup if you don’t want to. This is just meant to be a casual meetup where fans can geek out with each other about an awesome webcomic.
OTHER COOL STUFF???: There will be giveaways! I personally will be bringing my prototype WV plushie, complete with mayoral sash and all (Can Town for cats and cardboard chess board not included unless I feel generous about the cardboard piece. The cat food is for the Coates cats at Trinity, silly! I might also give away the baby PM that’s pinned to my WV even though you can just as easily print one from the original artist’s blog, but you’ll have to get your own pins if I give her away because I need those for sewing projects!), and I might order a few prints from the Whatpumpkin store to give away to other people. If you feel like giving things away yourself, by all means, go for it! Whether it be handmade or bought from WP or Topatoco, it ought to make a lucky fan happy. c:
WHAT ABOUT FOOD?: I encourage that you bring some food to snack on along with the cans you donate (if any). If everyone brought things like baked goods or other snackish foods (Gushers totally count too!), then we could all have a Homestuck picnic, and everyone knows that picnics should be way more fun with lots of people and lots of food. You’re encouraged to bring whatever you want, in other words!
GENERAL RULES OF COURTESY: Be nice to each other! If you’re a Karkat or anyone else who’s foul-mouthed, don’t go shouting long strings of profanity. This is a public place, and there are bound to be kids out there. Also don’t bring buckets to throw at people or anything ridiculous like that. Surely you can prove that common courtesy isn’t dead! But that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun. In fact, I encourage you to have as much fun as possible! It’s not every day you get to meet up with a bunch of fans.
HELP WANTED: I, uh, am not actually from San Antonio myself. In fact, I’m just here for college, but I really like it here. Anyone who’s familiar with the area is encouraged to help me out with dropping the completed Can Town off at the local food bank. I’d say tell me where it is, but I don’t want to drive there alone if it means going on the freeway. I’m terrified of freeways, you see? So if you’d like to guide me there or if you can volunteer to take our Can Town to the food bank yourself, that would be super.
ANY OTHER QUESTIONS?: Drop me an ask if you have any questions or would like to volunteer to take the Can Town we build over to the food bank. Don’t be afraid to ask me anything! I don’t bite. c:
I was considering hosting this meetup atBrackenridge Park because it’s closer to my college, but considering that a dog pack has been causing trouble there and at my college since the winter of 2010 and that those dogs have killed eight cats, have bitten one person, and have killed a small pet dog, I’m just going to go ahead and host the meetup at Hemisfair Park like miikan and milkbelly did. Better to inconvenience myself than to put myself and fellow Homestuck fans in danger! See you on April 14th! Have fun, bring the best attitude, bring cans if you can, and geek out! There will be TaB, too! And possibly Faygo if anyone is willing to get any. I’d get some myself, but I’m not too familiar with what places sell Faygo around here. See you then!
Reblog if you’re interested or just want to signal boost to anyone you know who lives in or near San Antonio. The more Homestucks, the merrier!
