Is anyone else depressed about how badly this comic fizzled out?
Homestuck was a defining feature of my life for four years. it gave me impossible standards for convoluted plots, plot twists, clever dialog, in-series mythology, and more that I don't think another series is ever going to fulfill. For the past few months my only thoughts about homstuck were "I miss enjoying that."
If that faggot Hussie hadn't wasted his time on that shitty game, it could have gone out with a bang and people would still give a fuck. But he did and a few years from now nobody will remember him or his comic
Homestuck's longevity entirely depends on how good the ending is.
To make it good he has to sink most of the current ships, conclude character arcs in a satisfying way that isn't some bullshit meta "lol we dun have arcs" thing, and actually make the main cast still relevant
It's not gonna be good
Not really, I'm just disappointed with how long I spent with it. After I started thinking on it I just realized how shit the overall comic was. Aranea's text box explanations bored the fucked out of me. I believe that was one of the points where I began to drop interest. Along with killing almost every intermission character off.
Somehow I came to enjoy Intermissions over the main plot. Also I fucking hate Sollux and his shitton of bullshit lives. Also it's pointless to even care about character death. There's no reason to get emotional or find it funny anymore. Hussie fucked up bad.
I'm secretly hoping he pulls some cascade-tier shit out his ass and ties up at least 3 of the major threads, because otherwise I can't justify myself reading all these boring-ass fanfiction-tier pesterlogs
[S] Remem8er gave me some hope at least
The reason most people don't actively shit on it like Korra is that we're actually legitimately disappointed that it hasn't lived up to- Not even it's promise. It had actually set up some pretty high standards in the early acts that he just couldn't deliver on. I don't think it's that he couldn't intrinsically pull it out, honestly. I think the quality suffered because he got hit by personal issue after personal issue in that one period a few years ago. It's not fair to him and it's not fair to us, but it's life. So we just kind of accepted that Homestuck wasn't going to be what it could have been.
I wish it focused more on epic fights with fraymotiffs, more explanation to the god tier powers and just big fucking fights in general.
I really hope Hussie finishes it with a big fucking fight.
Personally, I feel like there should have been less writing.
By which I mean, more implications in dialogue instead of outright stating feelings, and fewer walls of text overall.
The walls of text are what killed the comic for me, personally.
So far what we expect
>sawtooth and squarewave will do something
>casey does something before it ends
>maplehoof becoming tiny
>davepeta, vriska and terezi die
>more Da stuff may come because caliborn got a "gold account" there
>everything here may be a red herring
Korra ended on a high note, but it couldn't make up for the shitstorm that had come immediately before it.
On a completely tangential note, I'm keking so hard that that attempt to make a fan-sequel petered out.
I thought I was with Korra and Homestuck's recent stuff but then I saw other gay stuff and liked it just fine.
That shit was just shit because it was shit, regardless of orientation.
What's your favorite music from Homestuck?Mine would have to be MeGaLoVaNia.
>tfw found an extremely cute girl on okcupid yesterday who was in black lipstick and a blonde wig
>asked her if the name 'lalonde' meant anything to her
>she confirmed that her picture was a roxy cosplay
>we're getting along super well, flirting right now
i did it, thread. i did it.
Tread lightly. Met my girlfriend of three years in a very similar way. Of course she turned out to be a psycho-bitch.
Check her Tumblr every few weeks to see what her new obsession is. Apparently it's now Star Wars and Undertale.
>implying the personalities of the characters reflect on the cosplayers
apparently this girl is 21 and has literally only ever kissed someone for physical contact. she seems perfectly well-adjusted and sociable, though.
don't get it, but she's sweet as all hell.
i've cosplayed too, get your stick out of your ass bud.
lmao i've been dating/doing fwb with people off okc for over a year now, i'm well aware of the dangers.
and we both like undertale + steven universe already, and have already talked about social justice things, like. i have this under control.
>implying the personalities of the characters reflect on the cosplayers
Oh they do, not like you think but it's so easy to fuck a Jade if you're an even halfway decent Dave
I'll stop saying it as soon as people stop making the mistake. Be careful.
Linear subversion only works a handful times until the readers start asking why they are bothering to read a "lol randub" comic. I get your reply is funposting but really doubt dude will make more weird pairings on the last 1% of pages.
The stuff Hussie has posted about Undertale is honestly kind of sad. It did drastically better than Hiveswap could ever hope to. Only it cost 1/10th as much. It shows, in a pretty undeniable fashion, what he could have made, but didn't. So when he posts about it there's always this mix of admiration and salt.
when i was a freshman in high school i started reading homestuck daily but i soon realized what the community has became so i stopped reading it
>Stop reading something due to the community
Dude I can relate to that feel but it's not the comic fault if the community is shit. And it'd be shit anyway, regardless of the quality of the show/comic/game
no, I'm serious. I was predicting for weeks before davepetaspirte^2 was created that nepetasprite would fuse with one of karkat's romantic interests, that Davesprite would fight LE and that Dave would die. I was horrifed when all three turned out to be true simultaneously in the worst way possible
So thoughts on when he will start updating again? I'm guessing febuary or early March and the epilogue posted on 4/13. The epilogue will be a 4 year time skip and show John has lost his eyes and mouth but gained a nose and a son
they dont read like theyre made by someone who realizes that people will read them before the next parts. or maybe i'm just hoping that there will be some follow-up that makes them better.
davepetasprite is so insanely terrible, that in the past he would surely acknowledge it in some way. i really want to know what corner he wrote himself in where this is the solution.
and after the obligatory delaying of the encounter, he thought "well what will i do in the davedirk conversation. how about dave was traumatized by his upbringing in a comic where a girl was raised by a dog."
>well what will i do in the davedirk conversation. how about dave was traumatized by his upbringing in a comic where a girl was raised by a dog
Jades upbringing has been a knowledge as fucked up. Dave's hadn't and yes mom was always drunk and dad prank ed John nit they actually had food in the fridge and weren't always spying on their kid to use as puppet porn and didn't have a puppet kick them down steps
Just wait, Jade's backstory will be terrible and sad now
Yeah but all she came out with with that was a temper and an inability to be relevant because she's straight.
>John/Vriska sunk (Vriska probably thinks she still has a chance with him, John gave up on her)
>Karkat/Terezi sunk ("You don't need him" :^), no sign of Karkat giving a shit about her anymore)
>Rosemary isn't special anymore and became the most boring gay ship in the gay singularity webcomic
If it isnn't already then Hussie fucked up.
Oh wait he somehow managed to fail to convincingly convey the tragic circumstances of a little girl living alone on an island with a dead grandpa she had to stuff on her own??
Guess he's a shitty writer.
>no sign of Karkat giving a shit about her anymore
I'm more mad about the fact that GO! Karkat isn't shown ANYWHERE in Terezi: Remember memories, even after all the shit she gave about him and the fact that he died saving her
Is it true that he hired a company to make a Homestuck video game after raising over a million dollars on Kickstarter, and then the company stole his money and made the new King's Quest game instead?
The cardinal flaw with something like homestuck is you completely lose the capacity to tell a story like it if you can't both write and animate. I want to tell a story like homestuck but my art/animating skills are awful and I still need to improve my writing
Fuck this dumb shit. But I bet Hussie will do this crap, because he can't commit on anything. No wonder that dreambubbles exist for consolation prizes. (Karezi fans still have a chance with their GO! versions.)
>I can't pick a fucking option because my parents divorced
Yeah, we get it. You're afraid of commitment and afraid of disappointing people.
I haven't read the comic in years but isn't the final boss the big green guy? Lord English? stopped reading around the time the cherubs showed up but wasn't one of the Lord English in the past or something?
>sawtooth and squarewave will do something
fuck yes, so much this.
Either Union Jack or Alt! Calliope. Jack has an obvious route to power that's been foreshadowed. He kills Dave, Dirk, and Terezi, then flies off and kills the other jacks and takes their stuff, creating a jack with first guardian, LE and queen's ring powers and LE's cane.
Alternatively hussie made Alt! Calliope intentionally ominous with the ability to eat souls and steal their powers. She's already done that to her caliborn, she might do it to LE
Nah, i't pretty obvious he's not the last boss. Tavros pointed it out to Vriska and she called him an idiot. Really, if you want evidence in idea is wrong, see if Vriska says it proudly and calls whoever disagrees an idiot
>actually having a problem with three people all loving each other
I don't actually ship anyone (I was just checking to see if the comic had updated) but I honestly need to point out that you westerners and your obsession with monogamy is really weird
Like almost none of you are happy in your marriages anymore but this concept you people culturally have about love being specifically this special thing between two people makes trying to escape that without being taboo impossible. I've only lived in the gates for three years after I came here for college but the happiest family I've ever known was a polyamorous trio with an open relationship that lived in an apartment and were all swingers. To a Puritan that's some "degenerate" shit but they were honestly the most contended group of people in a relationship I've ever seen, whereas everyone with a single significant other or spouse seemed miserable
So is the cairo overcoat made up of vriska's coat
stolen by kurloz on LEGamzee's behalfand the house juju somehow? That could be what increases LE's powers beyond that of a lord, because the juju would have the powers of all 4 kids.
I reckon it's going to be smashed by the crowbar, giving the kids the upper hand having already been through the loop once knowing how to beat him.
This is my only theory I've ever made and I'm banking on it fuckers
>everything Vriska says is wrong
>"Jake is useless and won't have pro8lems fighting the Felt"
>"GCTAVsprite won't 8ackfire"
>"lol I am the 8est in pale relationships"
>"wow karkat u hitting on me 8lackrom????????"
"Commitment" in the way you use it is such a weird thing too. I can be emotionally committed to more than one person. You're emotionally committed to both of your parents, all of your siblings, all of your friends, why can it only be one lover?
Either way no matter who is the "pussy" it's happier than most American married couples end up so I shrug.
Hussie got conned out of all his kickstarter money by a bunch of fedora wearing "Odd Gentlemen" and he got BTFO by the autist he exploited to make all his music.
"Undertale is the part of Homestuck I'm proudest of" fuck off Hussie, you didn't make or inspire Undertale. Toby slaved under you just long enough to get a grasp on how to get an autistic fanbase, then he made an actual GAME that was CONCISE and FOCUSED and most importantly NOT ON A BUDGET OF 3.5 MILLION DOLLARS
Let Hussie's bloated corpse be the fertilizer for new artists who actually give a shit
Fuck at this rate I think Kaz can outright fuck Hussie's girlfriend right in front of him if he actually decides to update Prequel more than once a year
I wasn't participating in this argument and only started reading it at the comment you're replying to.
And your comment reminds me of a Louis CK bit.
"THEY'RE FUCKIN' QQUEEEEEAAAAH"
You're a screaming Boston moron. That's you.
People can't live their lives unless they do it on your terms. Even though your terms are weak and dysfunctional for them.
"NO GIVE ME THE CONTROLLER YOU'RE PLAYING IT WRONNNNNGGGGUH. >A<"
>all these people defending OT3 shit
>tfw Hussie is a shit writer and actually panders to these people
those fucktards wanted karkat/jade/dave but get Sollux/Feferi/Eridan instead
How would be your reaction?
It would be cool if a reality-breaking battle happened between Jack and Alt! Calliope after both the events you listed occurred, but I guess we'll have to settle with whatever Hussie comes up with.
They didn't even get that. Because it's clear that while Hussie might be many things, at least he's not the kind of guy who is enough of a wuss to "share".
huh, forgot all about that.
so if >>79081122
is right, and LE's coat is somehow imbued with the juju, do you think hussie will explain this in a random one-off panel and never talk about it again like the hack he is? cos the coat flash was like 3 years ago and completely forgotten
Mierfa was and always will be better and you know it
It's really sad that there are only two possible outcomes for the end of the story: either all the survivors rebirth their race on a planet that will one day be selected to play a new game of SBURB, or some of the survivors rebuild in the whitespace on a few planets too tiny to support more than a small society.
or, you know, everyone dies. any way you look at it, it's unhappy
You're forgetting that there's a third way the comic can end.
A young man stands in his bedroom. It just so happens that today, the 13th of April, 2009, is this young man's birthday.
>or some of the survivors rebuild in the whitespace
The abyssal plane is John-only, anon. Watch, he'll have to be imprisoned within it forever to finally, permanently defeat LE. Final panel will just be John drifting in the endless abyss as the wind brings whispers of voices past him.
You (plural) miss the point most who like OT3 on the current time behave like foam girl and some who approve the concept are betas only looking for approval of more than one person. Im all for non-monogamy but I dont want HS flooded with a)stuff happening thats not sburb or shenanigans and b)more obnoxious people on the fanbase
man, I've been away from the fandom so long I don't even think I can recite that line anymore
nah, he can let other people through, though that reminds me: the alpha kids are still trapped In caliborn's session after beating him with nowhere to go
didn't the guy that composed doctor nearly die in a fire and then get forgotten by homestuck forever
a lot of his motifs and melodies influenced a fuckload of future tracks too. a shame
I ain't advocating any ot3s though.
If that was the case there really should be foreshadowed ealier. It's more likely the coat is alchemized with something like the Billiard Eyes.
I really doubt the comic's going to end on just everyone entering the new universe or anything that'll just be them recreating life.
>If that was the case there really should be foreshadowed ealier. It's more likely the coat is alchemized with something like the Billiard Eyes.
this is more likely now thinking about it. kids'll probably be released via crowbar at a later date though
The guy with the last name so inexplicable that it functioned as a valid username, yes. His story is actually really sad.
Also his Newgrounds page is still up. http://buzinkai.newgrounds.com/
I didn't realize how old Stress was.
And it's actually pretty old to, like predates most of the tumblr trends
>tfw got into homestuck a little too old to develop fetishes from it

Pic related resumes whats done of everyone, good times.
bowman is my music team husbando. I have a folder on my old PC of pictures from his twitter and blog going all the way back to like 2008, screencaps of him at cons and pictures from his improv routine. have 4 youtube channels under his name too. I think I have an obsession.
maybe. I'll have to plug the tower in and all that jazz. If I remember correctly, a bunch of photos from his pre 2009 stuff saved in a weird format for some reason, so there will be some useless files peppered in there.
have this for now though.
yeah but her being morphed into waifu material through maternal love that she tries to deny is cool
Dumb classpect restrictions are retarded. Roxy has canonically already left one session into the Furthest Ring, retrieved Calliope, and returned to it via magic Void powers. There's no reason why she couldn't jump sessions this way or even just fly to the site of the final battle in the Furthest Ring. Shit isn't hard for a Void hero.
Yeah but you can't corrupt her into housewife material as well
I don't want housewife material, I just want her to sit on my face.
read the fucking comic
>I don't want housewife material, I just want her to sit on my face.
See, you're not thinking long term
>doesn't remember jade's plants
>doesn't remember jade's plants
true, I just went back and checked, I only remembered the plant in the loading screen for her little flashes.
The long term is she sits on my face.
>browsing old folders
>remember I had a hard drive crash many a year ago
>Was able to salvage my meatstuck stuff
>lost all my cool vriska images
I'd try to do one last good battle animation for each fight that's still left, and INTENTIONALLY only show the weebfuck ships and characters hugging in the background of people like John and (Vriska) getting back together or some shit. Ya know, leave people like al;djfal;d sfkjapeta and aldfjaldfasljdfaquius in the background, with no post-animation dialogue, nothing more than literally a cameo-style appearance while the relevant, i-dont-wish-their-fans-would-kill-themselves characters close the story up
So, I started reading Homestuck, finished Act II, and have yet to start Act III.
So far I have enjoyed the wordplay and some of the captchalog antics, but the plot has so far been meh.
Do I stop here, or continue on?
a lot of the silly but pointless stuff early on is needed to ease you into the truly batshit stuff later on that's integral to the plot, but would be too hard to keep track of if you just got presented with all these mechanics and terminology all at once.
he'd just retreat further into his shell
There are arguably better flashes, but damn if this ain't the one I keep coming back to when I think of good Homestuck music. One of the oldest, and still one of the best.
cuz they were powerful kings and better than white people in everyway
Tumblr is basically just another version of /d/
Because in their eyes they're just offsetting the fact that characters 'default' to white most of the time.
The way they do it, however, is by rolling a 100 sided dice of ethnicities and sexualities for every character and declaring the result canon.
Which is why Jade is a black, muscular transman otherkin.
Monogamy has been ingrained in society since practically the dawn of time. If you like the idea of your wife getting fucked by another man, hey, that's your fetish, but take it to /d/, don't try and normalize it.
Inb4 Hussie becomes the ultimate hack and rips off Undertale
That's news to me, Tumblr SJWs hates people who ships incest, saying that it oppresses child abuse survivors and shit.
Also for the case of offspring they would probably be fine if they're going to way on how polytheist deities do incest.
But if you're also fucking the guy, then it's all good.
Yeah, that's how your little fucking brain logics it out. "Sometimes I get fucked in the ass too, so it's a-okay." And then your wife gets pregnant with another man's child, and you're taking care of it, and now you're a literal cuckold.
Fuck man, leave it to a Homestuck thread to promote this type of bullshit. Kinda wishing it stayed banned.
>And then your wife gets pregnant with another man's child
You're really fixating on that - you do know that it isn't the pre-industrial age anymore, right? Lineage is not that inflexible as it was back then, as long as everyone in the relationship takes custody of the child it's as much of a family as any other.
Polyamorous ships by nature include multiple couplings, so Dave/Jade can exist alongside Dave/Rose and other combinations.
WSW - Beatdown is one of my personal favorites.
Still sort of miffed that the cover artist for that track wasn't paying attention in Make Her Pay, so Karkat and Terezi fight that ogre on Karkat's land instead of Terezi's like they're supposed to.
Yeah man, it's not only not the pre-industrial age, it's 2016! Why don't you accept the idea of willingly letting another man impregnate your wife?
Your children are the only surefire way to make sure you genetically live on. Procreating is built into every species on the planet.
The fucking ideology you're preaching is just self-destructive progressive bullshit .
>self-destructive progressive bullshit
That's a tautology. Progressivism is inherantly self-destructive: it's based on a notion that western society is defective and needs to be destroyed to pave the way for a better world...
>commies still honestly think their system can ever work

Post your favorite album
There comes a point where you just have to say that enough is enough.
I am a black guy, but even I find this to be quite... unnerving. This person has literally made the lalondes into two sassy black mommas. I mean, I can literally hear the "you go gurl!" and "mmh-hmmmmMMM!" from that picture.
That is certainly not the lalondes that I am used to. God, it's at the point where it's barely even a depiction and more like AU versions of these characters.
And Jade... Ugh god, don't even get me started on how fandom Jade reaches into lovecraftian-tier levels of inducing nausea to me. I just can't understand how these artists could ever think that the black community would thumbs up this bullshit.
Strange, Sburb is one of my favorites. The piano assortment is super relaxing and calming. It's a nice change of pace.
My least favorite would either be Mobius Trip & Hadron Kaleido or Genesis Frog, simply because they're so damn unnotable. Symphony Impossible to Play too, I guess.
>I just can't understand how these artists could ever think that the black community would thumbs up this bullshit.
That was never their objective. They're doing this to feel good about being "progressive" without actually having to do so. Like >>79086928 said, the general demographic of Tumblr's fanartists don't really respond well to reason. Or constructive criticism. Or anything really.
Volume 6 makes me the most nostalgic, for some reason.
I just want the pain to fucking end.
So many years invested into this fucking shit, just end it. Get it over with. I know the ending is gonna suck anyway, so just fucking end it already. Give me peace, give me solitude.
>get to dress up outside of halloween and have a bunch of girls want to take pictures with you
You don't realize how awesome cons are as a kid
Since Hussie's got the Con Air bunny, how much do you think he'd pay for Starsky's sunglasses?
i've got a picture of a cat nudging its dead child owner trying to bring it back to life, is that sadder
cause thats pretty sad
It's really not. Since what that cat would actually do if left alone is eat their owner's body, starting with the softest parts it could get at, which is usually the nose and eyes and eyelids and lips.

>mfw high as fuck and watching the main flashes
I don't care if he's evil, I can't help but feel proud of our little boy during [S] Caliborn: Enter. Look at him, being a cute little badass.
Would you not read ghettostuck though?
All eight little teenaged faggots, not only trying to deal with SBURB but also the menaces of the black lower income community: obesity, drug addiction, and illiteracy?
>Caliborn is the protagonist
>John is the main antagonist/rival who periodically shows up to have a boss battle, yet always remains one step ahead and defeats Caliborn through superior skill and strength, seemingly every time
>Boss rush at the end, Caaliborn uses his sacred plot sword to finally defeat his rival
>Years later, in the epilogue, Caliborn stumbles across the secret bonus hellboss
>It's John and his miniboss team again, powered up to insane levels, in a true postgame impossible final boss
I can relate to Diamonds Droog. Thanks to Homestuck, I too have developed a fetish for gray ladies.
Not really, all four kids are affected in some way by (at least partially) intellectual interests that in no way reflect ghetto shit at all.
>John gets his kicks from reading an obscure book of pranks by a Southern gentleman
>Rose reads and writes wizard and Lovecraft shit on a regular basis
>Dave has the whole rapping thing, but that's balanced out by all kinds of other stupid interests (swords, puppets) that a real ghetto kid would just call gay and beat you up for
>Jade's house literally filled to the brim with weird shit
It'd be hard to make without fundamentally fucking up their characters, but I guess the fanbase obviously musn't care about character coherence much to begin with.
yo, OP, have you seen Venture Bros? I'm right there with you on that whole second paragraph, and VB is the only thing I've found that can fill the void. its good at a lot of the same things that homestuck is good at--great writing, great mythos, great characters and the most complicated plotlines on TV. It starts rough but man is it worth it.
at this point I think he's realize that he can never live up to the expectations he has set. It's the HL3 problem, no matter what he does for the ending it's virtually impossible to be what we wanted, at absolute best it will just be closure.
I can relate to Jake English. Thanks to Homestuck, I too have developed a fetish for blue ladies.
>mfw always liked Feferi the most
>her potential as a character and her relevance to the plot gets completely shafted
>Hussie later makes a post about how "he was throwing the Pisces fans a bone when I made Meenah because Feferi is so boring lol"
>feel pretty insulted that the creator of your favorite character is basically talking shit about you liking said character
Hussie... you got no chill.
Why does Hussie hate Aquariuses so much?
>forever associated with Vriska's bullshit
>she will never be redeemed
>or get the joke treatment like every edgy or former-villain characters get
>now two fucking versions exist
>implying they exist
>implying Karezi and Daverezi fags are "fans" of her
>Terezi slowly gets actual fans from the latest updates, only to be reduced to shipping merchandise for Vriska/Terezi and John/Terezi
>character is now totally worthless, becomes Eridan 2.0, has been turned to Jade 2.0 (muh end flash will prove that I get characterization), now became a shipping merchandise for other popular characters, Karkat fans are dead and don't exist
>see Karkat's description and being turned into a backgroun prop with Rose
Remember when Hussie pandered to Karezifans with Neophyte holding a Cancer necklace, Terezi and Karkat being shown dead together as trophies and them hugging when Terezi killed Vriska afterwards? And then the speech he gave to her in the dreambubble flash?
Good times. Thank you for the retconning, Hussie. I am also glad that you can't let Vriska have a nice afterlife with alt!John.
I don't know, both Feferi and Eridan had a lot of potential to be great characters. Remember when he murdered all those people? That was fucking great. But it all got retconned/written off anyway so w/e right.
>neither karkat or dave did anything wrong
Remember when karkat tried to schedule him and dave dating terezi based on when he predicted that she'd flip caliginous on dave?
Karkat did basically everything wrong
dave did literally nothing wrong.
This thread rings pretty true. I actually miss the General, and dissecting the plot, and analyzing symbols, and silly cartooning. Before it turned into a shitpost carousel during the multiple hiatuses. You can really tell when Hussie stopped caring about the project: no more 3 AM steaks.
What was that one song that had to have its name changed, because the Tumblr fanbase couldn't handle completely legitimate uses of old school words? It was smooth as fuck and jazz inspired. I love that song and it's been so long since I've heard it that I don't remember its censored name nor the real one.
Eternity's Shylock, or Eternity Served Cold.
People were offended at the use of Shylock because Shylock was a jewish caricature in Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice. While people have mostly forgotten about the jewish component of Shylock's character, shylock still means that you're a loan shark.
>When Feferi was actually relevant to the comic, she was only ever used as emotional motivation for Eridan (who ended up being mostly useless)
>The one important thing she did which actually did end up being super important to the plot/many characters (create the dream-bubbles) is skimmed over and swept under the rug and barely anybody remembers it
>Since then she is literally never seen in the comic again
>Her ancestors are both just "LOL IM SO GHETTO AND NOT THREATENING XD"
At least people remember Eridan for what effect he had on the comic, and at least Nepeta and Equius are popular despite what little they've actually done.
Shit, who wants my Homestuck folder. I don't even remember what's in there anymore. It could be a shitshow, or a goldmine.
Steve Jobs ripped off old school broadcast Star Trek for the aesthetics of the ipods. The new Star Trek movie ripped off the Apple aesthetic for the interior of a lot of the ships.
This is hardly being "the ultimate hack," even compared to just shit that Hussie has already done. Don't get me wrong, Hussie's a hack, It's just that this specific problem is actually really damn hard to avoid if a series runs long enough.
Cascade was basically the last part I actually enjoyed.
>The "kids" are technically turning 20 this year
Jesus, where has the time gone?
>Karkat will never rub your cheek with his cheek
>Nepeta probably had the hardest orgasm during the rubbing
I'm just going to have all hiatus time erased from my memory so that it feels like I read the comic from start to finish with no gaps, so I can appreciate it instead of being jaded and old and tired.
>Should I get into homestuck? I see my wife's son reading it form time to time, and from what I can tell it's just a cute comic. But I also hear that there's a lot of swearing and violence. I just want to see if I need to censor it so it doesn't damage his sensibilities.
Half the point of Caliborn as a character is that he actually has a lot of respectable and even admirable traits that are normally associated with a hero, except he's a complete and utter dick. His character arc is like a weird inverse hero's journey.
>Homestuck was a defining feature of my life for four years.
SAD 2 THE MAXIMUM
It's got to the point where I expect it when I see that image now. I still like the idea of John randomly phasing into a big, heavy moment for the trolls, punching Vriska across the room, and phasing out. None of those horned fuckers should be given the privilege of knowing what's going on.
Homestuck's defining features will always be trying to be too big and ruining itself.
As a comic about the kids it was amazing.
They added the trolls as main characters and my interest dropped off a bit.
They added 4 kids and my interest dropped off a lot more.
They added even more trolls and I really couldn't give a shit any more.
Homestuck has always been getting worse by trying to add too many new things, now it's getting killed off completely because Hussie tried to ride his popularity into a video game, it's almost poetic really.
I was into Homestuck just from roughly April 2010 to November 2010 and only click on these threads in rare occasion out of bored curiosity. Purely as far as how amusing I'll find it, the bigger the trainwreck the ending is, is better.
>stop by /co/
>notice this thread as I scroll
>oh shit right I guess Homestuck is ending
>read thread and laugh at memories of 5 years ago
>everyone has moved on
>see your post
>sudden knife to the gut because I remember I wrote bloodswap fanfic stuff
ah fuck, why did you go and do a thing
HELL no. I did it for kicks and to mess around with stuff for another project, and it got inexplicably popular despite being amateur trash. There's all of two things I was ever actually proud of making for that godawful fandom, and that wasn't one of them.
Oh god I hated all the text walls too. I put off reading updates for so long because I was discouraged from reading that load of shit. He really needs to learn how to "show not tell".
Davepeta has no reason for existing. 20 seconds into being alive Nepeta gets forced into that shit and Davesprite essentially gets obliterated as a character. He was cool. Davepeta is actual shit.
Right now, Dave/Karkat is the only thriving ship. Even with the existence of Davepeta it doesn't mean that Karkat wants or likes Nepeta, lest of all an amalgamation of an alternate timeline version of his boyfriend and formerly dead friend.
>karkat/kanaya is literally perfect
>b-but she's gay!
Andrew is such a sjw cuck it's not funny
Karkat<>Kanaya would have worked, but Hussie's not up for good ideas
Haha! As if.
Andrew has always been politically incorrect.
He think gays are funny, and lesbians are hot.
I started reading Homestuck when Jade was being introduced. I got so caught up in it. That shit was my heroin. But then the troll arcs, and the Alpha children and the alpha trolls make huge dents in my desire to care, but I still kept up on it. But no, after so long, I don't even know if I'll bother to read the ending, if it ever happens. I can't even be assed to remember 80% of the shit that's going on.
I guess I'll just post some art that I had made at the height of my fandom.
Hussie is merely playing it safe because his fanbase (aka paycheck) are easily-triggered tumblrites who will boycott him to eternity if he doesn't pander to them.
Soon as he finishes Homestuck and cuts it off like a nasty bandage, he'll be back to his old ways.
If he was going to do that, he would have pilfered from FNAF already.
Sad but true. We will never see anything like "And It Don't Stop" or "Neon Ice Cream Headache" again.
I'm 80% certain they fucked at least once.
He was never racist, just non-PC
Dude wouldn't come from SA in first place if that was the case
90% of their interactions are just shipping trash. Jane defined a good part of her time to being devoted to Jake, which she later said was, in retrospect, super fucking dumb. Roxy stayed in the background and just responded to whatever Jane was doing. Dirk's angst eclipsed Dave's. Jake never grew out of his thickheadedness and everyone blamed him for being a retard when they, in fact, were just as retarded as him.
Nobody did anything significant so this is all that came of their interactions. It was a fucking chore to read, and I despised Hivebent for doing exactly that too.
them meeting was a horrendous disaster
i cant believe hussie had them comment on the fact that john and jake happen to be related. thats the least interesting thing any of his characters could possibly say.
Why was Aradia's quest bed on Derse?
What was the Point of the Exiles?
What was Snowmans endgame?
Why do Nepeta and Equies have such a great relationship?
>Why was Aradia's quest bed on Derse?
No reason ever given
>What was the Point of the Exiles?
Complete stable time loops, help the players, rebuild society so the planet can be harvested again.
>What was Snowmans endgame?
Get killed by Slick and die knowing he perished in the death of the universe as well.
>Why do Nepeta and Equies have such a great relationship?
Obligatory stable moralliegance so we can base all others off this control.
Angry time traveler "Joe" appears in front of you, tells you that you punched him in the face in the future, and pushes you down a flight of stairs in revenge. Now, because you know that you will punch him in the future, you seek him out at some point later and punch him. This causes him to swear revenge and travel back in time to push you down a flight of stairs.
In Homestuck, if a stable time loop is broken and someone causes a paradox by doing something they're not supposed to, then the current plane of existence is considered "doomed", and bodies start inexplicably piling up. Eventually a time traveler will realize what went wrong, and go back in time to fix the mistake. He then dies because he's from the doomed timeline.
One character alone gained ultragod powers and was allowed to ignore these rules, so he retroactively vandalized the entire comic out of sheer spite.
You know, it'd kind of weird how Homestuck was even a thing. How did it even get there? If you read it as is, it's probably more of a weird, surreal slog, mixed with Ulysses and typical Shounen hype building with hiatus'
Yet people like me and other latched onto it harder than a tick on a sick and dying dog.
