So i just started homestuck yesterday and im at the end of act two. Does pic related ever stop being an insufferable prick? I mean, he's good as a side character for jhon and rose but when the story centers on him it really slows the plot down, I mean, the sub-plot with his bro is fun at the beginning but then it's like, fuck dude, just get the goddamn game and save your fucking friend, y'know?
also, this can be a homestuck thread if you want it to be
None of the characters ever stop being annoying
They reflect on how annoying they are, or were as it's the future, and then they just continue making stupid mistakes because then literally no plot would happen if they were to fix their character flaws
It's about to
by which I mean there's going to be about 6 more months of this until the threads get banished to /vg/ because the coming video game is going to be more relevant
its actually true. not in the "that episode of Arthur when.." way, but he legitimately gave a speech about how society causes wrong ideas of masculinity to john after not seeing him for a few years.
Last weekend I tried starting homestuck and read as many chapters as I could. I really gave it a chance but it wasn't interesting or compelling in any way. How can people actually be interested in this? Please, someone tell me the appeal.
Good question. I didn't really like it the first time I read it and I had enjoyed Problem Sleuth a lot before then. If you pay enough attention to detail, there is this magic sweet spot where it becomes just self-aware and self-referential enough to be charming instead of obnoxious. Unfortunately it doesn't stay there throughout.
