>[s] Cascade isn't even the halfway point of the comic anymore
Is Hussie trying to outdo Problwm Slueth by having Homestuck's ending literally be over half of the comic? We've been in Act 6 since 20-fucking-11.
it got worse after the constant hiatuses killed all the hype. Everyone moved to the new hotness, Steven Universe, because it filled their needs for shallow drama and characters with DBZ powers.
Despite the name, Act 6 isn't a single act. It's a dozen half-acts and should be approached as such. If Hussie wasn't so hung up on Act 7 being the epilogue, we'd be on Act 18 right now.
Yeah, at the last Dragoncon I remember some pretty young cosplayers, and everynow and then I'll see posts on other sites about people just finding the comic, there's always a spike of activity when there is an update and it brings in some new people
I just remembered the time tumblr threw a bitchfit and forced Hussie to change the CAUCASIAN joke
It's impressive how so many people can manage to completely miss the point of a joke that hard
Actually had you been here you'd know it went down like this
>hussie drops update
>People apparently use the now 'canon' proof the kids are white shitpost to the extreme and harass some artist who unironically believe the Dave is Black meme
>Despite the fact that somehow none of this harresment or proof thereof never made its way to tumblr or hsg while instead tumblr & hsg are both flooded with complaints about how hussie is a racist
>Hussie says he changes the joke to protect his fans
Literally all he had to do was have jane say she felt nutty since that would actually make sense in context, but he went for the low brow joke like the old days and all hell broke out against him.
>Literally having a panic attack and quiting the fandom because your entire sense of self worth is invested in an 'original character' that other people emulate
I'm havin a giggle m8
>>People apparently use the now 'canon' proof the kids are white shitpost to the extreme and harass some artist who unironically believe the Dave is Black meme
but we already have canon proof the kids are white, why would hussie just change that?
>implying tumblr read anything pre act-5

Vriska is more likely to be a speedrunner than he is but i doubt she'd care about any sort of charity

You cant this shit up.I still remember the hsg where someone first posted the note from BroadwayKarkat's friend who was shaming people for also cosplaying as BK since it was "Their" character.
I heard it was another case of Tumblr turning on the people it once praised and driving her out of the fandom. Like she hurt her voice, and her doctor said she should take a break from singing for a while to heal it. So she was going to take a break, but then Tumblr flipped their shit and demanded more content anyway, so she packed up and left.
he is the only not completely one-dimensional character, with flaws, who could possibly be redeemed.
im not saying he is great, but he is a hell of a lot better than literally any character besides the midnight crew, caliborn, or Doc
Why doesn't Karkat just tell Nepeta that he isn't her type?
>I was in highschool when I started reading
>Just got out of college
It must be weird to be the actual creator of content that takes off like this. On one hand people enjoy your stuff, on the other hand they treat your work like the gospel, right down to worship, holy wars and crucifixion while declaring their headcanons and shit to be canon as if they were prophets and disciples.
I can't help but feel that if I were ever in that position I'd sooner tell all my fans to fuck off and stop reading then to have it devolve into a cult.
>I can't help but feel that if I were ever in that position I'd sooner tell all my fans to fuck off and stop reading then to have it devolve into a cult.
If you were getting rich off of it I think you'd be able to tolerate it at least.
Honestly I think Toby Fox did the sanest thing one could expect to do with Undertale, since he (correctly) predicted it was going to take off: he hid egregious shit like the furry fat fetish OC Kickstarter character in the bowels of the game where it can easily be avoided, he deleted his Tumblr blog before the release of the game, and he's stayed as separate as possible from his shitty fandom and all the things you described as possible.
It's not just Tumblr, it's millennials in general. They all have ADD and autism, they all put people on pedestals and tear them down again as soon as they find out about a single flaw.
I hope something I make attracts a tidal wave of autism someday
Image seeing a bunch of 16 year old otherkin get in fights over which one is REALLY the reincarnated soul of some character you made up
Imagine seeing people create countless pieces of new and fantastical pornographic art of your original characters that you hadn't even imagined in your wildest dreams when you were creating the characters themselves.
Whatever happened to VonFawn?
I hear she got knocked up at a con.
I do dig john roxy, but that time they shared in the dream bubbles and the fact that vriska died after commiting to try and be a better person was one of the most powerful moments in the comic for me. It's a shame Gussie hates vriska so much and can't let her fade like fef.
Yeah... maybe in a dream buble a doomed jade and john are together
Literally will never happen in any conceivable form of reality. If it did then the characters wouldn't be John and Jade. It's like saying there's a parallel timeline in Homestuck where Karkat doesn't have bright red blood. It's a part of what makes Karkat Karkat.
Not sure how much I can tell. It was before Cascade so my memories are foggy. Long story short, we were each in groups of people at a con. Some people in one group knew some people in the other group so we all hung out for a while. I didn't know who she was, but she brushed off some other people to chat with me and do the hand-on-arm thing and laugh at my stupid jokes. Then someone called her Von Fawn and I dropped spaghetti and she absconded the fuck out of there.
He's still my favorite, but Hussie has treated him very poorly recently.
I'm still mad that he's become the designated character that asks about stupid things so that another character can explain them to him, essentially making him a voice box for retarded readers and the other character a voice box for Hussie explaining things clearly. All it does is make Karkat look more clueless and stupid than he really is, and it pisses me off.
It's a cute ship, but it's doubtful it was a thing
at least, not until post-canon.
If you want him to be, we'll see what the ending brings.
College parties are rather overrated in my personal experience.
This would be funny if acually true because theres a link about autism and how older the parents are (talking about baby boomers), and CWC for example borne when his mother was 40-41.
>hsg is dead
It's over. It's finally over.
I would have been okay with it ending IMMEDIATELY after the Act 6 intro. Just, show us the new world, and the hope that exists for the future, and then cut us off. I thought that was a beautiful piece of work and would have served well as an ending because it echoed the beginning.
Then, if he wanted, he could have finished the story in the game (which would have given him a hard limit on how much time he had to fuck around with things before having to wrap everything up).
What pisses me off about Hussie is that he doesn't actually have the entire story roughly planned out, there have been multiple fucking big plot lines that just didn't happen. Instead he just leaves a bunch of small hints that he can decide to follow up on later, or simply ignore, which leads to an overall shift of the story's tone and everything. I mean, when you read the Formspring questions or the book commentary, it's saddening to think of what could've been.
tldr hussie's a hack
>John returned to that point in time, happy to see all his friends momentarily alive again
>"God damn am I good looking. Now fuck off, younger me."
>A few minutes later he consigns them all to oblivion rewriting history, happy that he's finally doing something worthwhile
John is pretty much the only guy who would willingly summarily execute his past self if it meant everyone else would benefit in the end.
Milfs are not a level, they're a binary thing. You either are or you aren't
God please let this be a joke
I mean if your literally gonna have DS say, nah I'm done with this shit Im outie, why the fuck wouldn't you stick with it?
Please tell me this is a joke and I'm being baited
>no more PXS, and no word on more
>can't afford to ship his own merch anymore, a sure sign of the deflation of the fanbase
>le vaporware game is now running at 66.6% as many dimensions as before
>tentative release date for the day the tentative release date for the game and comic aren't even on the horizon
Where did it all go wrong? Hussie and his comic used to be some of the biggest things around. It's sad, if I'm being honest, family.
The one thing that could've helped out the super pauses with goofy stories harkening back to the original comic and instead we get literal Highschool AUs about rape
You also forgot that dating game that doesn't exist anymore for who the fuck knows why
>That guy who tried to show the game off to /v/ got his thread nuked the second he started the HS route, after getting through most of the Namco shit already
Top fucking kek
Wait, really? He's not even writing Hiveswap? Jesus fuck, what a joke.
How embarrassing will it be when one of your music guys ends up making in 1 year on $5000 a game that's infintely better than one you had years and millions to develop?
>praises zoe quinn
>incorporates memes instead of making his own
>avoids making jokes that might be offensive to people
>mismanages and fucks up his company while taking massive pauses (thus eliminating one of the main draws of his cash cow)
Why is Vriska in a dress?
>He's not even writing Hiveswap?
One guy's been spouting this but never gives anything to back it up other than baseless speculation and that there are a few other people hired as writers/head writers. But given my experience in the industry"head writer" doesn't really mean much, could mean writing dialogue, could mean making sure the help text is understandable, could just mean that's the guy who runs the whole thing through spell checker.
Not to mention you pretty much never put the raw text from the guy who actually writes the story directly in the game, you gotta format it and split it up, it isn't atypical to have one guy writing the whole thing and a whole host of "writers" in the background actually inputting the text or just filling in details like signs the player can read or graffiti in the background
And the only thing Hussie's said about having other writers is that he's gonna get some other folks to write a good chunk of the thousands of lines of trollFacebook and trollTwitter the player can read if they want to waste their time on it
>And the only thing Hussie's said about having other writers is that he's gonna get some other folks to write a good chunk of the thousands of lines of trollFacebook and trollTwitter the player can read if they want to waste their time on it
where has he said this?
One of his tweets he mentioned about getting a few people to write the troll's facebook and twitter equivalents, and there was gonna be a lot of it if the player wanted to bother to stop and read it
He even attached a screenshot of a notFacebook page containing a small conversation between two trolls
Didn't save a screen shot of it but it was posted on one of the Homestuck threads about a month or two ago before the big panic caused by Hussie's stalker
This is the first I've heard of it, mind you I don't really pay attention to what's going on beyond these threads on /co/, but you got a link to that?
Who is the head writer anyway?
I have no idea how to search twitter, never use it honestly
Huh, guess someone else is
Well actually, it still depends on how the project is broken down, but that's interesting
>Why is Vriska in a dress
Because No More Heroes
A lot of them were utter shit but there were some decent ones.
I'd only want it because it's the only hope of getting more MC Intermission stuff. God knows Hussie's not going to have Slick be relevant again in the comic.
>I have no idea how to search twitter, never use it honestly
i think you have to use a third party site to actually search people's tweets
yfw slick dies unceremoniously in the upcoming flash
There's also these tweets, which make it sound like Hussie and Ryan have the plot and the story down and the head writer's parsing all of that to put into the game.
>We have 3 versions of Jack Noir
>One's been gone for years and will probably die horribly
>The other's also been gone for years and will probably die horribly
>The last one no longer has a personality
Why does Hussie hate all of the carapaces? I mean look at what he did to WV.
>There's also these tweets, which make it sound like Hussie and Ryan have the plot and the story down and the head writer's parsing all of that to put into the game.
Yeah, that's pretty much how these things go in a game, the "head writer" is usually just the guy that translates the written script into something the game can parse, but I gotta agree with >>78785011, not sure how you're getting that from these tweets
>Dave nor Davesprite will be the one to defeat LE
>Dave and Jade will never do their land quests
>We'll never know what Gamzee's attack was
>We'll never know what Mituna's sacrifice was
>We'll never see the Problem Sleuth Hammer
>The Zilly Santas will probably be super important
Can the carapaces even enter the dream bubbles? I would assume not since they aren't players, but in that case do their dreams occupy some sort of other space? Could they get premonitions from the Horrorterrors?
I used to enjoy the comic but the constant hiatus made me give all the less fuck about it anymore.
That said I still enjoy it for the Xenoporn that came from it.
I still want more Kanaya #34
He was physically there. The real question is if they can "dream into" bubbles.
As far as I can think of though, there's nothing in particular saying you have to be a player. Or that in this setting there even are any dreams other than inhabiting your dreamself and furthest ring projection.
i read the first act to impress someone and then actually winded up liking it and finished it but i can´t remember jackshit about the lastest things anyways wasn´t this meant to end last year??
i kinda hate how many characters are on this thing...it could have ended with just the beta kids and the trolls but then they added all the other people.
it would have been better if hussie just did spinoffs with the other characters BUT completed the main storyline in some way but you know ahdh and shit
>Even with retcons Feferi won't have any significance
It feels bad.
Carapaces are fucking great, the Intermission was unironically the best part of Homestuck. And DD should be, him, Jack Noir and maybe Deuce are alive.
DD is still alive, probably discussing business wear with Jane's dad.
I'd kill for CD and DD to do something cool in the ending.
Dronegorg or whatever it was called is still around.
At this point I would honestly accept
it all being just an actual computer game in the end, ending with John getting told to get off the computer by his dad. It'd really be better than whatever shit they're going for right now.
I think the reason for that is because of the spades part of their relationship, how they're pretty different so they end up arguing. I mean, Dave and Terezi weren't bad, but it was mostly just them agreeing on stuff, her telling him what to do, and Dave being Dave. Hell, it might've been not bad just because it was Dave and he could carry anything back then. But hey, at least John and Terezi are interacting now.
The whole comic is an allegory for puberty being the catalyst for the death of imagination. It'll end with all 4 kids back on their computers IMing each other with no destroyed earth and puppets and toys being crammed into cardboard boxes or he backs of closets.
I dropped off around the first hiatus, what happened to Dave?
Did they ever acknowledge the Hero thing or Bro or DS or that Super weapon that was really important from his Land Guardian ever again?
I feel like he's not completely terrible, but having it just come out of almost nowhere and having him go through all of this drama is just jarring. I mean fuck, Hussie, having one or two Freudian slips isn't enough to say that this character is gay, at least give us a bit of development or whatever. Going from telling us they're bros to telling us they're fucking is the shittiest possible thing to do, especially when you try to be coy about it at first, and then you have Rachel confirm it out of comic because fuck you.
Because they shouldn't be, it's a dumb direction to take the characters and detracts from their characterizations.
I still believe this same thing about Rose and Kanaya getting together.
it was pretty funny when he complained about how society pressures men into being masculine, in a meta sort of way
the worst part is how anyone who disliked the update is assumed to be a homophobe, and not because it was shitty writing
hasn't rose said a bunch of dick jokes as well? and she turned out to be a lesbian, people who call dick jokes foreshadowing are dumb
I remember the topic of those dick jokes got brought up and someone kept mentioning 'queerbaiting' as a reason it works as foreshadowing like what does that even mean
What I don't like is that it seems like these characters need to get in relationship to fix their problems, and once they do everything is good. Well that and Vriska being the cause of all of this and as well being required for them to win.
The worst part is he's still dropping spaghetti over Jane and Roxy. It's really hard to buy the whole "I'm gay now" thing when Hussie's still trying to make Dave's original personality shine through. Makes it feel even more forced
>Dave is constantly having to reaffirm he's gay despite ogling hot moms
>feels like he has to be gay to appeal to the crowd he's now hanging out with
Is this a meta commentary on homestuck in general?
hussie built him up as being into moms, even had multiple SBAHJ gags, right up until the retcon when he's suddenly gay
really doesn't work when the last things we see is calling Jane hot and fighting for his life to rescue Jade
gotta remember the hussie that wrote all that was prior to having his dad die and all his shit get fucked
Dropped Homestuck at the scene when we find out Dave and Karkat are dating. Not because of that specifically, but because there were like 20 characters doing nothing while having 60 separate conversations and they were all boring.
Has anything even happened since then?
Kanaya/Tavros redrom when?
>Tavros likes fairies
>Sylphs are fairies
>Vriska assumed that Kanaya had a crush on Tavros, may get btfo for her shitty assumption to come true
Do 12 year olds even know what Homestuck is anymore? The popularity has definitely gone down. I think it's changed honestly because of either the vapid cunt, his friends, his dad dying, our his beliefs just changing for whatever reasons. The disaster with the Kickstarter doesn't help either I bet.
Problem Sleuth would've made the better game anyways.
I also hate the new 2D artstyle for the game, it looks like shit. I'm also surprised it isn't the art style from the comic itself.
>tfw the only merch you want is maybe the books, and the Terezi boxers
I mean, I think they'd be cool, but what would someone think if they saw them?
Then again who's gonna see them other than me, let's be real.
The entire situation with the game is just fucking shitty, and it's because Hussie doesn't know how to contract a company. I mean this has to at least be the third version of the game. I actually liked the 3D stuff so it is a shame.
>Did they ever acknowledge the Hero thing or Bro
Yes but not necessarily in a way you would like.
You mean Scratch, or kid Bro?
>Super weapon that was really important from his Land Guardian ever again?
So far it's mainly been just there to complete the timeloop that allowed Bec Noir to get the ring way back when, but it's also got a magic cue ball as a component and it might be able to harm Lord English, but questioning whether that is actually going to happen has become a running thing even inside the comic. There's like three or four separate characters foreshadowed to defeat him or kill him but then again he's
a freakish amalgam of multiple characters himself.
Different stokes for different folks. I mean, I'd either have to keep washing it or just let it get filthy, and that's just not worth whatever little extra pleasure I'd get from it. Still, if that works for you feel free to go ahead with it.
allegedly, but really it was never supposed to be painted seriously like that, same with all the other guardian relationships
treating bro's goofy puppet porn as serious abuse is just a dumb retroactive change
Not really, he did mention Bro being abusive in the book commentary, but sort of just laughed it off. They did at least still acknowledge that Bro was a hero and not completely the worst person ever after Dave finished his temper tantrum.
played for drama and also played up a lot
he made it sound like like dave was being starved just because the fridge was full of swords, and also implied that bro was being influenced by cal to act more evil or some shit idk
wasn't that book 3 commentary? that was published years after the original panel
>treating pxs as canon ever
and yeah, hussie wrote that comic, but really between that and what happened in the comic it just feels like hussie tried to build up justification for dave's trauma after the fact
Remember when Eridan actually knows about war strategy, but then Hussie reduced him into a romantic loser until Karkat took over his role?
>fanbase now believes that Karkat and Terezi planned everything to beat the Black King
cohen also wrote this recent "official" DrMcninja edit
>that horrible, plasticy rendering
It makes me sad to remember how long ago Cascade was. That really felt like the lead up to the very end. I figured they'd get into the new universe with some new kids which wouldn't get very much backstory, and then the big bad would show up and the new kids would die as cannon fodder but the main group and trolls would win or lose against the big bad.
>Vriska is smart
>Eridan never had relationships
>Tavros is shit, because he didn't kiss back the psychopath who crippled him
>Karkat cries over everything minor
>Gamzee killed everyone, because his boyfriend Tavros is dead
Anything else from fandumb?
Not that it's too much for webcomic viewers, they just know in this current social climate if somebody has bad feels there'd be a shitstorm on at least a third of the loudest side of the internet.
>Eridan only wants to kill landdwellers because of pollution to his poor ocean
>Also he's just talking tough he doesn't REALLY endorse genocide
>And that's why Fef is a bitch
And who could forget the classic
>Jane is a bitch because she liked Jake
>JANE IS GETTING IN THE WAY OF YAOI
The only good thing about that Vriska is that she actually got to suffer and had everything stolen from her. Even her girl was stolen from her by AU her, the suffering is palatable. Too bad neither version of her is going to grow from this.
Great writers. Can't wait.
But all of that shit happened to goddamn GO!Vriska.
>GO!Vriska will still be relevant and will lead the ghost army with the power of friendship instead of Karkat
>Karkat has been truly reduced to epilogue character
>we'll give you your money back if you do damage control for us, cuz the game is getting cancelled
Because John doesn't do things of his own volition usually, he's more of a reactionary character. He's accidentally been popping through the timeline, and then he followed what Terezi told him to do.
I think it would be interesting if they break up, but I they're pretty much end game now.
I'm still hoping that literally any of Dave or Karkat's other ships happen, they were all pretty good.
Anon, Dave still needs to confess his love to Karkat, according to the latest update. They aren't in a redrom relationship yet.
>Karkat's other ships
Which one? He only cared about Terezi and had a crush for Jade and John.
Nepeta and Meenah were crushing on him too, though they weren't requited. Apparently it's been alluded to that Vriska may have had a black crush as well.
Honestly it doesn't matter though. Almost any other character would've been better than Dave.
Any proof for that? Or was she just taunting Terezi who asked where Karkat was?
Nah. Either she believes Karkat black-crushes on her or Karkat truly has shit taste and actually thinks he has a chance with her. Also I ship that crackpairing red anyway.
>using the number 8 as a substitute for the sound "-ate"
or he's just a bit clever
do we ever even see vriska's feet?
It's a stupid meme. It makes it seem like she's bad news because she's a woman, when the real reason is her personality problems, like how she's always convinced she's right and anyone who disagrees with her is wrong. BKEW is exactly the same and nobody calls him a vapid cunt.
you realise cunt isn't even a gendered slur in a lot of places, she's called a cunt because she acts like one
and BKEW isn't called that 1) because he's not as notable and 2) vapid cunt is a nickname that stuck
I said same people, not person, fucking hell
and they usually had an image with the same exact filename each time they tried to stir up anger in the thread long ago
along with the same mannerisms and copypasta bait too
>Ryan getting butthurt over Mr. Plinkett
Does he not realize that making Plinkett into a horrible monster but having him be so elegant at critiquing movies is a source of comedy? It's not like Mike was actually advocating people to go kidnap prostitutes.
but you just said it's okay to call people cunts
that's pretty fargone with hate
>cunt is an okay word means i don't have hobbies
do you think I'm just obsessing over it or something, is it like an american thing to freak out so hard over a particularly strong word
no one associates with her, she only even comes up in the thread because of things relating to the comic
he should have just asked or something god damn, i have a feeling johns powers are going to get either really over or underused, with no in between
Do you have the balls to tell me I'm a cunt to my face, little little man?
>thinks words dont have power
do you think words and ideas exist in a vacuum in which they dont effect anyone or anything?
i dont troll
you mean in 1898? and when it was included in wagnall's standard dictionary all the way until 1964?
>>do you think words and ideas exist in a vacuum in which they dont effect anyone or anything?
My theory is that a four letter word said to you anonymously only affects dumb weak bitches
Here, I'll even start. A better ship than anything canon right now.
I'm not against the use of the word but I do see why it'd be uncomfortable to some.
