hussie better grease up my ass and spank me like a horny monkey if homestuck is not updated by april 13
But it will.
The better question is: Will Homestuck finally end or will Hussie keep on milking that webcomic with more characters? Now we have (Tavros), (Vriska), (Terezi) and all the other assholes from the GO!timeline.
More like destroy any interest by alienating the few people who care and not interesting the people who are interested in that sort of thing because they're busy watching Steven Universe
So Grandpa didn't just get some bitch pregnant once, but twice.
Do Joey and Jude even have the same mom, or does Grandpa just congregate all his bastards together in the same place?
Pretty sure that's kind of canon
The newest fanarts show John being surrounded by Terezi, Vriska and Roxy while Davekat and Rosemary are shoved in the diversity corner on the left. Also Terezi's fanon height being increased to make her taller than Karkat.
Vriska was never sexy. She's not bad looking but her awful personality that rejected and reverted her character development and the deplorable way Hussie has written the story for her after she was killed make her intolerable.
Vriska coming back to life as the unquestioned leader and true messiah of Homestuck seemed like a fucking setup to a punchline and the story doing something completely different from it that never came because the punchline is actually us for reading this shit.
/r/homestuck is actually one of the few dumb places that liked davekat, I really wouldn't take their opinion on anything. We've still got that overhanging prediction and it's not like Jane's stopped wanting to split herself on Jake's blunderbuss
It did. It honestly felt like the first few pages of Summerteen Romance before it was revealed as Karkat's self-insert fanfic.
Literally everything that happened in the new timeline could've happened without Vriska and what's more, it wouldn't have involved Terezi being drained by Vriska's emotional vampirism.
Do we know anything about Hussie's sex drive or sexuality in general? We love to say Vriska is his ultimate fantasy because of how he made her the main character and never punished her, and I wouldn't be surprised if he had a serious mind control fetish, but the dude reads like a completely asexual entity.
Chill out and wait for the ride to resume with no expectations.
Almost all of the characters are pretty attractive to be honest, though I lean towards the humans more.
I'm always up for Dirk/Dave.
I'm not gonna lie, their heart-to-heart is what made me ship it.
Too bad it happened after fandom died. ;~;
The fandom shrunk, but it's not dead just yet. At least, the portions at Reddit, Tumblr, MSPAF and MSPARP are still bustling.
Yeah, I getcha - basically if you're looking for any fics that don't involve the most popular ships, you're nigh shit out of luck. And it takes even more digging to find one that doesn't have out-of-character writing and such.
Well of course - since Rose/Kanaya has been stagnating for a while now, Dave/Karkat is there to take over its legacy of pouring a bunch of generic fluff and hurt/comfort fics onto AO3.
I don't expect this to last for long when the comic resumes, however.
>(Vriska) saves the dreambubbles with the power of friendship, gets her harem with post-retcon dead John, (Terezi), (Tavros) and Meenah
>Jane, Jade and Jake do something cool and that's it
>Vriska gets obliterated and we wasted time for John bringing her back
>Karkat was an actual epilogue-only character all along and gets with Dave, Hussie wastes panels of them kissing each other while every Homestuck character is clapping and saying "Congratulations"
>John bangs Roxy and Terezi on the background, fucking Dave's mom and Karkat's gf and eternally btfo'ing both of them
There you go.
>LE destroys the Green Sun
>The critical crack resulting from this cascades outward and all of reality collapses within the circle erasing all wayward souls trapped in it
>The four heroes re-emerge from the juju prison as one unified soul occupying John's body, which has since grown used to carrying multiple souls within at once and is the only one with a body strong enough to withstand the effort
>Hussnasty fistfight between LE and the hero in the absolute void, with powers thrown in occasionally for effect
>The hero kills LE, his souls unmerge and disperse into the void
>The hero collapses on the brink of death from exhaustion, John forces an unmerge and sends the other 3's souls back to reality to return to life before the clock can strike 'Heroic'
>Alt Calliope uses the last of her power to seal the breach forever, her soul vanishes into the ether as well
>Survivors enter the new universe, their victory assured and their legend inscribed within Skaia's mythos forevermore
>John finds a skeleton man in a black coat in the void that offers to play a board game with him
theres my fanfic. also, kanaya dies in the conflict somehow. It's very tragic and dramatic and overdrawn and the mspa reader doesn't give a damn and skips ahead.
Callin it. The juju prison is merging them all to become Andrew Hussie himself. The only other meta character with LE "awareness" of the story.
Also the fact those 2 characters have been fucking with eachother throughout time and space
>Hell, I've been betting that Rose/Kanaya is going to be sunk for a while now
And we have told you many times it's retarded to expect them to break up for no reason. You are an idiot and every time you post your idiotic theory I get flashbacks to wonk saying davesprite would become the alpha dave.
He could have had him killed offscreen or be completely forgotten.
Actually wait, that might have been the better options.
That's weirdly accurate. I wonder if he looks upon his old politically incorrect comics with disdain now, or if he wishes he could make them again without risking violent backlash from his internet circle.
You are not everyone in these threads, anon. And I didn't say they'll break up for no reason, but rather something will come up between them because as it is, their happy-go-lucky relationship is out of place.
>but rather something will come up between them because as it is, their happy-go-lucky relationship is out of place
There is nothing to come up. Yes they are happy but breaking them up because they are happy is even dumber than wonk was. You are dumber than wonk and bkew combined
In a nutshell: it starts off OK and quickly becomes one of the most innovative, cleverly executed webcomics on the internet. Then the bad decisions start piling up until you can't ignore them.
The story is unfinished, and worse, on hiatus. This makes everything harder to stomach, because there's a small glimmer of hope that quality will improve again, if only we can stick around during half a year's worth of silent hiatus.
There are a few kinds of response to this, from what I've seen:
-Stop caring about the comic entirely, likely move on to something else (like many have done with Undertale or SU)
-Remain a fan and be somewhat excited for the end of hiatus (requires endless optimism, trust in Hussie and/or low standards)
-Shrug it off, because you like the comic, but aren't so attached to it that it starts to affect you emotionally.
-Remain a "fan", anally devastated by the direction the story has been taking, waiting in anguish for the comic to be over so you can finally move on with your life (and, maybe, if you're lucky, be satisfied with the ending)
Cans and Stitch are pretty neat.
You're awfully mad about the suggestion of a ship sinking in a comic where ships sinking happen fairly often.
Alao Meenah and Vriska had a happy relationship that broke up pretty quickly, it's not implausible.
>Meenah kills LE, BTFO everyone else and takes Karkat as her sex partner.
>Karkat does awesome shit in the final battle.
>Rose dies suckling on Karkats COCK in front of Kanaya.
>Kanaya turns into a fetishistic mother for Karkat.
>Humans go away reeee
>Trolls enslave humans anyways.
>Meenah rightfully rules the universe with a sissified Karkat at her side.
>Porrim secretly acts like a mommy towards Meenah.
If this isn't the end of HD I'm shooting up a comic con.
Remember when we were all reading the update, and everything seemed off? How we thought the characters spoke weirdly or were outright OOC, or how we believed Vriskagram and what followed was some kind of psycheout timeline or Vriska's own fanfic? It HAD to be some kind of trick, right? Hussie, with his -incredible- writing skills, wouldn't have dared pull off this kind of thing, right? Right??
Haha. Good times.
Those are some oddly specific fetishes you have here.
>Alao Meenah and Vriska had a happy relationship that broke up pretty quickly
They only got together because they were all alone and there was an age difference. Rose and kanaya got together and didn't even break up when rose was drunk their whole relationship. If that wasn't enough to break them up in a time line where they are much closer and happier nothing will
>And you really think a relationship between a main character and a primary secondary character is just going to stay in the background and be relatively shallow, just like that?
Yes? We don't need to go in depth on how happy they are together now. They are together and going strong it doesn't need to be a focus
Reminder that Caliborn's OC will become real.
Davepeta is the coat and green wings,GCATavros is the electricity, Nannasprite is the scar, Slick is the hands and staff. Mix it all together with LE's soul and the final boss is formed.
Do not skip any intermission. They are relevant to the story, unlikely as it may seem.
Now, leave this thread and don't come back until you've finished act 5, because spoilers.
The Big Bad kills John
If you're willing to keep digging.
someone made this drawing recently, i think it's pretty good
also i am a huge johnfag, any cute art of john would be greatly appreciated
I'll give myself a fucking ulcer if that happens.
But I totally expect him to drop a decent sized update then do a horse calendar for the rest of Act 6 while he finishes the epilogue
The aspects are fundamentally based in vague symbolism. Any of them can do anything if the bearer is creative enough to make the metaphor work.
This is pretty much correct. Light, for instance, can be taken as some abstract idea of 'victory' or 'fortune', but a good Light player, if interpreting the aspect literally, can manipulate physical light.
>Any of them can do anything if the bearer is creative enough to make the metaphor work.
That's actually a really nice way of putting it. Still just an excuse for Hussie's wasting of lore potential, but a nice way of putting it.
>Still just an excuse for Hussie's wasting of lore potential,
it wouldn't be homestuck without wasted potential
>lol you expected cool things to happen? let me write nothing but trash for the sole purpose of subverting everyone's expectations
Breath, along with light, are supposed to represent the metaphysical, religious concepts of creation and such (the pneuma, "let there be light"), so breath is supposed to be like accumulating spiritual power and applying it to oneself and others. Or something like that.
No, but a large amount of his audience (i.e. the place that shall not be named) loves the trash to death. He's trying to juggle writing the trash to please them in a way so that he can still crawl back to the original fans and try to say "Hey! Th-this is just meta h-humor! It's ir-ronic and you can tell I'm just f-fucking with you!"
>Remember when we were all reading the update, and everything seemed off?

oh man, all those theories
>maybe calliope is writing this part of the story!
>maybe vriska is MCing everyone and that's why they act weird!
We just had that long convo between Dave and Dirk that says that's not necessarily the case.
It's 10px Courier, if you can do an aliasing effect on the text that'd also be preferable.
>John can transmute himself and anything he holds into wind
>Logically refining this technique, John could theoretically turn only things he's holding into air, then store them within his body to be recalled later, like some sort of sublimation/declination captchalogue system to make up for his lack of one after losing Wallet
>He stores absurd objects using this, such as Gundam-size mechs, thousands of copies of the full-size Quills of Echidna, and alt copies of himself he's met in the dreambubbles and rescued from their fate, as well as common stuff like blueberry gushers and a portable keyboard
>During battle he spontaneously summons hundreds of giant, spinning, caustic drill-needles that bore through everything
>Teammates stop fighting and just stop and stare as everything is reduced to dust from this onslaught
>He never thinks any of this is unusual or weird; this scale of force was normal for Jade and him on the 3-year journey
>He's slightly unnerved when the others tell him this isn't normal in any way
Is it? Alright. This came up before where the font appears differently depending on software settings. Personally I don't know much about these things.
I recall him saying that he was done with regular content, and there would be only some brief buildup before the final flashes, and he wanted to release it all roughly at once.
But he also said this about the content before this damn pause started, so who knows. I seriously doubt he'll post anything before 4/13 even gets close to rolling around.
He's not done with regular content.
>This doesn't mean you're seeing all that will happen before the endstuff. After the pause there'll be another stretch of pages more in the vein of escalating material, which I think is better to post closer to the animation that follows it, rather than now and get everybody hype for a whole lot of waiting.
Also it's more likely he'll stagger the updates lest he wants the servers to crash like last time.
I was there
I was there in /hsg/ when we were going crazy for Tavros to kiss Vriska
What in God's name were we doing, /co/? What were we doing...
Man. I've brought up that idea in the past
on the forums, but it never picked up any support. People there just preferred more rigid, uniform ideas. Abstract interpretations of the aspects and classes' functions seemed like a step too high for anyone to understand back then. Wonder if it's changed at all now.
Not while that one site remains the fandom's fanart dump
how do you feel about HOT art of john?
Black KatNep is the only KatNep that matters.
forced impregnation is jade and jane's territory
>Spent years thinking her grandpa killed himself
jade's like 10 there though
Alright. So I've had so much shit spoiled for me, thankfully my memory is like a damned sieve and I remember jack shit of the spoilers other than John being a corpse at some point in the future, had to happen.
But I'm up to the end of Act 3 and I'm so fucking lost already. Like, everyone is on Sburb now and the Trolls are getting introduced and I'm giggling my arse off at Dave trolling the troll with homo-sexuality jokes, and Jade is SENDING SHIT BACK IN TIME IN COLLABORATION WITH MYSTIC POWERS to John to SEND TO HERSELF, so you might imagine it's all a tad wee bitty confusing for lil' ol' me.
THE FUCK, JADE. STOP THAT. EVERYTHING WAS SOMEWHAT UNDERSTANDABLE UNTIL YOU HAD YOUR DREAM SEQUENCE. HOW DID JOHN GET THERE? WHY IS YOUR DOG MAGICAL? WHAT'S ALL THIS TRANSPORTIFY AND SEER-LIKE SHIT? WHY IS THE NANA-SPRITE WRITING A MESSAGE NOW SHE ALREADY WROTE IN THE PAST?
I hate time-paradox shit, it's too much for my tiny little mind to handle. Some please send help and explain it like I am a child.
Here's a slight spoiler that'll help ease the confusion: The things she sees in her dreams are premonitions of things to come. Also, her "dream self" will be explained, just pay attention to the geography of the Medium Remember, John is as clueless as you are in this, and Jade, Dave, and Rose all are the ones to dish out info on the confusing shit.
Holy christ's puckered anus that is amazing.
This a legit kelly?
well if john and jade are dark logically jake and jane have to be
Vriska also has a huge overbite. No wonder she keeps on "smiling" on her overworld sprite.
>implying they don't add to her adorableness
>implying they're that big
>wants to fuck a literal living chess piece with no outer genitalia
These four niggas, the guardians or whatever, Seer, Knight, etc. They're chess pieces?
Huh, well while three of them are skinny lanky fuckers, WQ is actually curvy, they wouldn't wear clothes if they weren't naked with shit to expose underneath.
WQ doesn't have a visible mouth either.
The WQ also has rather small beady eyesockets that are also almond shaped
vriska needed someone to hero worship and model herself after once meeting aranea ruined mindfang for her
meenah was just happy to have a loyal cronie who wound bend over and suck her dick for every decision since all of her friends are either gone (aranea, karkat, dirk, dave) and everyone else she knows doesn't really want anything to do with her
they were a shitty relationship to begin with, that's why they fell apart immediately
>started reading too late to enjoy the golden age of naked attention whoring cosplay
What's the fucking point. All I see are occasional relics.
No, but it has that strange quality where people consistently come back to it after they lose interest in their new game. Undertale works a bit too much on topical humor styles, and although it doesn't really have memes in it like some say, it has a style of humor which most likely will not age well. OFF, on the other hand, is vague in both its story and humor. It doesn't really rely on anything new to make it work. While less funny in the moment, it tends to last a bit longer than something like Undertale.
There's still quite a lot of naked attention whores, even just in the archives. Occasionally nowadays you get good new stuff still too. You just gotta filter out the trannies, the really fat chicks, and the overly hairy out of shape dudes.
This guy tends to reblog the less fat ones, just pick a character tag.
Actually most of the blogs are still around, and plenty are preserved. They usually delete and remake them like three times a year because attention whores are attention whores. There's some taken down videos floating about too, good stuff.
Neither last as long as homestuck. Even in 2015 it was still the third most reblogged thing on tumblr.
>hsg harasses homesmut girls to the point of them deleting blogs
you mean 3 people posting nudestuck in a thread and wanting to make a zip file with all the recent nudes?
you call that "harassment"?
because HSG used to have a dropbox full of nudes 2/3 years ago and no one cared
both can exist at the same time you realize
The album got deleted. I reverse image searched the images in the album and found this article, ignore the title it's actually the nudestucker.
As long as the artist doesn't majorly change the designs I don't really mind.
Undertale is really that good, play it as soon as you can, preferably blind.
Or Hussie is acknowledging a game and its popularity made by a close friend of his.
I played it (and it's really great), Also I agree that it should be played with the less previous knowledge possible.
I was just wondering whether Hussie was taking "undue" credit or Homestuck was somehow important in Undertale creation
And he probably has the advantage of being one of the few Felt members who isn't a complete idiot.
As a spiritual successor of sorts to MSPA and with the similar sort of humor, calling it part of a legacy is not that implausible.
He took the adequate amount of credit he had, he didn't claim he worked alongside Toby or anything.
Claiming of the game being part of the legacy is the minimal amount of credit to take with claiming that he actually worked on the game along Toby.
Why is this being argued on anyways? It's not like Toby objected to Hussie's wording or anything.
Toby and Hussie are close friends, Toby worked on and is still working on a good deal of Homestuck, Undertale was made in much of the similar spirit as Homestuck, and Hussie was happy about Undertale's success and called it part of a legacy. If anything Toby was probably elevated by Hussie saying that.
There's no big reason to lose your shit about this unless you're just being a contrarian turbo autist.
no one's losing their shit, this anon >>78895556
>>78895183 asked if he was taking credit where it wasn't due, and me and another anon said he is
>Toby was probably elevated by
see there you go again acting like this is even about toby
>Toby worked on and is still working on a good deal of Homestuck
literally some shit you just guessed
And again, if it's not about Toby, it's just petty spiting towards Hussie.
>literally some shit you just guessed
He said he was working on Hiveswap and it's more than likely he's assisting Hussie on the final Flashes.
I have a question:
In Openbound, Gamzee asks Rose to promise not to tell Karkat that he's dating Terezi, because "that might be what pushes him over the edge to finally kill me".
But if he's invincible and could easily kill or non-lethally defeat Karkat in any situation, given how overpowered Gamzee is and how underpowered Karkat is, why would Gamzee have any reason to be afraid of Karkat wanting to kill him?
because he was purposely feeding rose bullshit to make himself seem less dangerous, and she was probably a dumb enough cunt to buy it.
>killing anyone to begin with, let alone gamzee
Him doing other things doesn't equate to him not doing anything at all for the final Flashes. I doubt he's not going to do something for the finale of the comic he had a major role with for five or so years.
Undertale exists 100% because of Homestuck. You are a fucking retard if you think Hussie doesn't deserve credit.
In case you're not aware, Undertale got funded on Kickstarted by Homestuck fans. It wouldn't have gotten a tenth of what it did without Hussie siccing his fanbase on it. And then Toby developed the game in Hussie's own basement. You can be damn near sure Hussie had significant input on the development too, considering how closely they worked and lived.
I personally don't care about spoilers, but apparently there are a lot of things I didn't even know are spoilers that are basically common fucking knowledge at this point.
Like Sans's glowy eye and the main character's name.
I browse /v/ every day, follow half a dozen gaming websites, and bought Undertale a month after it came out, completely unspoiled. The only thing I knew was "there's several skeleton characters people seem to love". Which turned out to be just two.
If you read articles and threads about games you haven't played, you are a retard.
You don't need to look as far as Alphys to find Jade in Undertale.
Know what's a shame? Postalmost definitely won't end up being a Vriska post.
>WHY IS THE NANA-SPRITE WRITING A MESSAGE NOW SHE ALREADY WROTE IN THE PAST
that is an actual unexplained mystery to this day. the only explaination is that the writing wore from when she wrote the exact same thing last time in the exact same spot.
I'm pretty sure Nana sprite writes that shit in the book which is then sent back in time with baby Nana and eventually becomes passed down to dad and then to John for it all to repeat again and again...
No, she wrote the message on John's clean copy of the book, then it was sent to the ectobiology lab where it was sent off on the meteor with baby John to become the tarnished copy, which Dad stored in his safe.
Quoting this >>78872733
>-Remain a "fan", anally devastated by the direction the story has been taking, waiting in anguish for the comic to be over so you can finally move on with your life (and, maybe, if you're lucky, be satisfied with the ending)
Because it has never been put more accurately and succinctly.
The copy that John had from the start was one of the copies from Nanna's joke shop, so there was no inscription from her. The one that killed Nanna was the one Dad stored in his safe.
>take a game with unique aesthetic and neat style
>turn it into 2d garbage
The webcomic is literally based on 2d point and click adventures, and they still manage to fuck up the art
Yeah I got a feeling that's what the update this month will be. Seems like they only JUST started the 2d game itself when he out up that update earlier when everyone was getting real antsy with how secretive WP was being
Jade, Rose, and Vriska
>I don't expect this to last for long when the comic resumes, however.
Activity always spikes when it does
I don't think that was happy, or healthy on (Vriska)'s end, it was just the novelty of it on both ends that kept them together, they were already falling apart when Vriska cucked worst spider8itch
I didn't get the impression Terezi was doubting about that, more about her place in things and how she behaves, Vriska taking over was only tangentially related to that
But I have a terrible memory
3 or 4, minor Oh Fuck moment but not a major issue at this point
Which he currently has because of the Mime
Long hiatuses causes it to dwindle, but there's always a spike in activity the months following an update
Dat belly button
I ain't looking at her face anon
Kanaya gonna tap that puppy
Despite what some people keep trying to push in their "make everyone hate Homestuck as much as we do" crusade, Hussie seems pretty happy for his friend and Toby and him are still on very good terms
I honestly think (Vriska) is going to do something stupid trying to get revenge against Vriska and fail, and then either fuck everything up and/or be the target of Caliborn's prophesy about Vriska dying again
I'm still hoping we get answers to why the Guardians knew shit
I actually like the 2D style better
Dave has all the fetishes
Reminder not fall for Hussie's tricks.
After three years and two project restarts, just having a shitty walk cycle to show for it is not very reassuring. Sure, he can pretend development is going great, but don't believe it for a second.
considering the last subact was completely permeated with characters offhandedly mentioning what a good couple they are, I don't get how you don't get the complaints
canonicity is almost irrelevant, it's the fact it wasn't fun to read, and if it becomes canon or not won't change what a chore the last subact was
>not something he wants to do while his popularity and relevance is fading
Are you gfamiliar with Hussie's work. Pissing off the fanbase has always been his stitch. It's like one of his main tricks.
the Master move there, is that if he break it, or confirm it, he will manage to piss of a part of the fanbase anyway. It's a win win for him.
Seeing the reaction of Karkat when John implied that ship existed, I'd say it doesn't exist. (people tend to ignore that moment when they complain about how this ship is confirmed)
they are moiral and Karkat hate the idea of moiral turning into full red relationship. It's one of the worst kind of romance story.
JASPROSESPRITE^2: Nope. Sorry to be the meower of bad news. He is just not cut out for you!
JASPROSESPRITE^2: Besides, he is involved with someone else now in that quadrant. He has moved on. And so have you!
of course she could have lied about it or completely misunderstood their relationship
but man, gay shippers are the biggest HS group left
>He's doing that because he's embarrassed.
Karkat is not the kind of throwing a tantrum when talked about his own relationship. At worst he can be coy about it.
Or Jaspersprite could be talking about Terezi, you know.
He is basically saying that Nepeta doesn't have a chance with Karkat.
Nah, Dave never talked about his inner feelings with Karkat until he met Dirk.
We saw John looking flushed when he hate-flirted with Terezi. Karkat must be pretty good for hiding his flushed feelings.
Also it wouldn't surprise me that Terezi or Roxy become John's endgame ship. One is John wearing a blackrom shirt and this is some bullshit symbolism about his endgame ship. (Same with Dave and his heart shirt) The other one is Roxy being the con air protag wife back then from the ectobabby flash.
>We saw John looking flushed when he hate-flirted with Terezi. Karkat must be pretty good for hiding his flushed feelings.
Karkat is not in the hate Quadrant with Terezi.
I mean, the comic itself establish that Trolls usually seek to fill all of their quadrant. Why Terezi hvaing a black rom would phase out Karkat?
Karkat got over with Terezi, silly Anon.
Also why are we talking about Karkat's relationship with Terezi? She doesn't need him.
And people needed Johnvris as well. Hussie loves to focus on relationships and then dropping them.
At least you can pray that Karezi happens with the GO! versions who had the most development together. (Terezi) probably advised the new alpha one to not focus on Karkat.
Hussie is taking sinking ships to a new level. Instead of the usual, he goes to one of the most endeared panels for that ship then literally makes it so the pairing never happened in the first place. What the fuck? At least let us have our memories. Fuck you, Hussie.
(Salty about JohnVris too)
People complained that Hussie was now a panderring faggot who panderred to Tumblr, unable to see it was his usual brand of silliness.
I mean, it was just the same brand of writting than for John and Vriska.
The John and Vriska stuff didn't come off as silly to me. It felt more like Hussie was actually trying to write some character development there, but then that just kind of got dropped.
Karkat just couldn't believe he was listening to John talk about this shit in the same way you'd be cringing (more internally, but nevertheless having a reaction) to someone you know talking in your circle of friends about something you are clearly familiar with, and the other person is trying to talk about it as though they get it and are completely off point.
