Is vriska the worst character, or is it Gamzee?
Gamzee's a cool bro.
So, two questions:
What happened to the Alpha kids after they sealed Caliborn?
And, does anyone have word clouds for Cascade, Collide, or ACT 7?
Reminder that the first episode of JACKQUEST is going down on /tg/!
>Decide to finish up Homestuck since its finally over
>Get to the Trickster arc
Did anyone else think Jade was the time player?
I was assuming Hussie had something grand planned for Vriska and was giving her points in advance subconsciously assuming she'd already gotten it, but now, 4 days after the end of homestuck hit, I realize that that "something grand" never actually happened, and that Vriska actually was the worst character in homestuck all along.
Kanaya is still fucking terrible, but Vriska is worse.
By the time Skull Island happened there wasn't a Vriska anymore, only abominations masquerading as her.
How do you know what lizard people look like?
Fraid not. It's surprising how limited timeclone gangbangs are
Is somebody touching the child in here?
I want to push Vriska down.
I want to push Vriska down and never stop pushing her down.
>people are impressed by Dad literally knocking down an entire building
>mother fucker sends imps flying through walls like he's baking a cake
He could have broke out of that jail at any time.
Way back then, everyone expected Rose to be the Witch (associated with cats, grimoires, etc.) and Jade to be the Seer (apparent precognitive abilities). In either a formspring or forum post he pretty much said he made it the other way around to defy expectations.
>spent years not caring about the comic anymore but keeping up with it out of obligation
>the ending makes me care again but now it's over and there's nothing left to discuss
Alright well I cant post on the good ole tumblr dot net anymore since apparently theres a fucking post limit
Seriously what the fuck
should I keep going in the thread or would that be annoying?
Who do people still ship John/Rose when John/Roxy is 1000 times better?
I'm surprised that comic got so many replies last thread. It's pretty old.
>Jade is a perfect kismesis for Karkat
>kismesism always seemed kind of violent before,
>but that's because none of the trolls actually portrayed it in a healthy light
Really. The warlike, extremely violent, cannibalistic alien society that founds its reproductive strategy upon fucking at gunpoint and has a caliginous quadrant founded entirely on the emotion of HATE. Has not portrayed pitch relationships in a healthy, balanced way. And humans are the ones who can manage quadrants the way they ~should be~. Because Jade and Karkat being snarky and sarcastic with each other = concupiscient hatred. Okay.
If I can't post the context whats the point my dude
Despite everything else in the comic so far I bothers me the most that the cat could tell rose a secret.
I think you fundamentally misunderstand the appeal of polyshipping
saying that people fantasize about threesomes because they're indecisive is like saying that bisexuals just can't make up their minds
Bisexuals do make a choice.
Polyshippers are fuckers who can't commit to a side and then try to justify it like you're doing.
Face it, you're an indecisive faggot. Go fail to pick a brand of ketchup or something.
Just tried, I can't
Also who's dick do I need to suck to get a plush version of this cat
I love this strip no matter how many times I read it. I cant put my finger on why its so compelling
I can't believe John never considered his dad was just a boring regular dude
Please, I'd take a thousand ship wars over the hippie "LOL I JUST PICK BOTH xD" bullshit you polyamorous degenerate fuckwits try and tout.
Make up your mind, make a commitment, or go fuck a third rail.
Considering it seems like the polyfags are always trying to derail things with the whole "let's just do both guys!" stuff. I'd say they're about as bad.
Only they're also indecisive cunts.
I mean John likes prankster stuff so it makes sense that a loving father who does stuff like>>81952063 would decorate the house for his kid. Seriously Dad's the fucking shit
Also good to see that the windows are legit periscopes into locations instead of like universal teleporter things like in PS
Look man if Dave/Rose don't share there vows over some Freudian quips or on pile of smuppet asses I'm gonna riot
>There are people seriously saying Vriska is worse than Gamzee
I see literally no reason why. I loathe Vriska for being a mary sue and a shitty person in general, but Gamzee is infinitely more of both than Vriska ever was.
>Can't die EVER "cuz clowns lol"
>Can teleport through time and space for no reason
>Knows where the Cherubs are and at what time they were there
>Knows what to do to take care of Cherubs for no reason
>Kills/attempts to kill everyone he knows because he's sober
You can't even say "Oh he was a good person before he went insane" because he didn't start murdering everyone because he was "insane", he did it because he wasn't stoned out of his fucking mind. He's just flat-out an awful person and an awful character. Anyone who likes him is just irredeemable.
"let's just do both guys!" assumes, someone was shipwarring.
If you hate polyshipping so much, don't come with shipping in the first place.
EZ. Don't talk about it or it's all ship all the way.
yeah. He drew few long homestuck related comics, usually the edgy and vaguely depressing kind. And this.
>>Can teleport through time and space for no reason
Time tables/black hole
>>Knows where the Cherubs are and at what time they were there
>cal told him
>>Knows what to do to take care of Cherubs for no reason
>cal told him
I keep getting messages like this and I just don't get it. Why the fuck would you read something you dislike? No ones holding a gun to your head when you open mspa, why the fuck is this such a problem? I legit don't get it.
I HATE THAT SOME OF THESE ARE NAMED RETCON AND I STILL DONT KNOW WHY WHY THE FUCK IS THIS THE CASE GOD DAMMIT
I have a habit of not reading webcomics till they are done. Waiting for it to finish is too aggravating for me so I like to binge the whole thing from start to finish, rare as that happens.
Guess since it's finally over, it's time to get started.
This still should've been the most significant ship, and better than when we actually got.
We're used to people who shit on something another person loves, just to prove the shitter is somehow superior to the lover. It's pathological behaviour, but it feels like it's frequent behaviour. Seeing someone who is expressing delight is a real joy becaue it's such a contrast from people trying to prove their edgelord status.
I really love the capthcha shit and the general video game vibe of everything
That's almost as dumb as skipping shit
Welcome to the club
no, you just need to provide genetic material with your red partner and your black partner
pale and grey quadrants are only there to keep society running smoothly, not for making grubs
all of Homestuck's problems can be improved 100% if Vriska was out of the comic
Who could have helped Rose get over her alcoholism? Kanaya and Rose would have, and their relationship would have been stronger for it
Who could helped Davesprite get over his suicidal tendencies? Davesprite himself, Jade, Dave, ARquius, or Davesprite could have sacrificed himself. whatever it could have been it'd be better than turning into Davepeta
Who could have fixed Dave's and Dirk's awkwardness around each other? They could have solved their problems themselves on the field of battle, instead of it being Vriska's idea to get them together
Who could have stopped Gamzee from fucking with Terezi? literally anyone, but particularly Karkat
Who could have made a perfect plan to beat all the villains? Terezi or Karkat, but really we didn't need the entire plan laid out, they could have just winged, at least we wouldn't know how the fight would end because the plan was 100% right!
Who could have lead an army of ghosts to beat Lord English? Karkat or the Mayor
Who could have fucked Meenah? Karkat
Damn John looking Fresh, I cant wait for him & dave to meetup and talk shop
John loves gushers because he's a dork without tastebuds
Speaking of though, and not directly to you per se, do gushers still exist? Do they still make them? I was putzing around at the grocery store the other day and I got it in my head to buy some, but they didn't have any. Are the 90s finally dead or what?
Well at least some of them stayed consistent in their interactions
Well okay, TECHNICALLY you need the mother grub to make ANY babies, and you just splash all your genetic gunk at her and she uses it to reproduce
But with the magic of ectobiology they can just combine their genetic code to make a new grub
Does anyone have a Mega link to the Discography? Broke at the moment v.v
I really do love this comic
So its gonna happen in the next like 20 pages then? Sick, I thought it'd take another act for everyone to meetup
wait a second
Why couldn't they use the gear on the meteor to clone the mothergrub?
this is awful but i want more, i want closure
polyshipping works where all three arms of the triangle are otherwise competing ships, and the characters themselves don't completely invalidate it. there is a real argument against jade/dave/kat in the possibility of Karkat rejecting it, which there is some direct evidence for (however also direct evidence that he's since rejected all his old thinking on relationships). for Jade we have no real insight into how she'd consider a poly relationship, and Dave we can guess would be fine with it.
it's canon, dude.
>I thought it'd take another act for everyone to meetup
She was already a rare jadeblood and a daywalker which was extremely unusual with the harsh sun Alternia had. As it turns out jadebloods are evolved to be regenerating killing machines in order to guard the brooding caverns and this is a secret from the rest of the population.
Remember when everyone was flipping their shit over this picture, believing that it was going to be used in the actual comic soon because there hadn't been any fan art in albums before then?
John is the AU Joker that became a super hero
>went crazy cuz gushers
>After manic episode becomes supersane
>Never has a mental breakdown ever again, because he lives disconnected from emotion, or emotions that he doesnt choose to have
it all makes sense now
Karkat might be the ONLY one who would consider it, but he's frowning at the picnic. Jade reacted negatively and didn't WANT a relationship with Karkat, just Dave. Dave is canonically monogamous, to the point where he can't even handle quadrants.
And even then Karkat isn't the kind of person who likes to share AND he won't live long compared to the immortal Dave and Jade.
Polyshipping in general is stupid but Davejadekat is the STUPIDEST of all polyships. You literally pick the three people who are the least likely to be in that sort of relationship, because you're fucking stupid and don't pay attention.
Of course. I don't hate the trolls as much as the others, but they did do a lot to muddy all of the original dynamics up so much. Damn the then-nascent Tumblr fandom.
So Jade's dog and teleport? Thats fucking sick
I'm going to assume this is a ruse. Why the fuck wouldn't the main characters who are all friends not meetup? That's fucking dumb
she was CLEARLY warming up to Karkat by the end of Act 5
granted Dave is an obstacle but if he was out of the picture and if Karkat wasn't too much of a pussy to ask then she'd be into it
Time paradox probably. You try to clone something that shouldn't exist and it gets goopified. They could try and use that goop to make a scrambled mother grub, but there isn't really a guarantee it will be a mother grub because we know fuck all about them, and Hussie isn't telling us anything else.
Just give it up, even the most desperate fans know it's DaveJade till the end of time
>What the fuck was that ending? Did they get through?
Yes. They got to a universe free from English and having to create him. Which is why the house turned white
Everyone except rose and kanaya are platonic ally friends
God I love that picture so much. Say what you will about Vriska, but it's damn cool.
I liked Vriska when the comic and/or fans weren't trying to justify her and she was just tearing shit up for the sake of it.
Well it was good animation. But like most animated segments, I'm left wondering just what the hell happened.
I don't think you know what politically correct means. Above all it means carefully choosing terminology so as to avoid alienating as many demographics as possible. I'm pretty sure calling homosexuality outdated is going to alienate the rather large demographic of homosexuals.
Okay so when Jade sleeps she pilots a robot and also exist as herself with a yellow uniform?
Its gotta be as a counterpart for the purple moon right?
Am I retarded and missed the name of it?
Okay so john used to be GT instead of EB, that makes the thing before the midnight crew flash make a little more sense
Before I began reading I heard a vague description about that it was about a video game that destroyed the world, so I thought that the kids somehow were the trolls, either as virtual MMO characters or new bodies to survive in the troll world. (Based on purely physical appearance, John-Karkat, Dave-Sollux, Rose-Kanaya, and Jade-Vriska/Aradia)
They had it available as a scarf. I think it's sold out.
Okay my inital assumpltion was the imps defaced everything, but why were the markings on Johns room like months before and then not there when Johns birthday rolled around?
On another note, did death even matter to them? The trolls had some pretty top tier ectobiology shit and their captcha cards still.
What literally stops them from entering their new universe? Like, who cares about deres and prospit getting fucked. Just sneak in while the murder demon is getting his hard on.
So many god damn questions. Fuuuck.
>she was CLEARLY warming up to Karkat by the end of Act 5
Yeah, as a friend.
And then immediately during the three year journey reacted with a "No, no thank, nope" to the idea of Karkat dating her.
Face it, she wants to suck Dave's massive clock, Karkat's not even considered at this point. And nor should he be because Dave and Jade are OTP
No one mentioned the shit before this moment???
Seriously, how is Jade not the time person?
I call horseshit those links did not have that shit going on
>Is it a coincidence, that the best rolls where the ones who appeared the least?
But Terezi got a lot of screen time and she was the best one
At least pre-retcon, but who counts post-retcon
Really? I get the impression that she was more or less cooling off on relationships in general and was more inclined to just be friends with everyone.
>karkat will forever be associated with Dave and Jade's bullshit
>he is a shitty leader
>he is a shitty kanaya clone
>Caliborn stole everything from him
How do you fucking ruin a character this hard, Hussie?
Oh there we go
I figured this would just be a metaphorical carrot on a stick for like another 2 acts
How does it feel having your favorite troll shat on at the end?
Mine just dropped out of the stories relevance and didn't appear until some sprite bullshit.
(Equius fags have it bad)
Explained? What needs to be explained? It was a conflict between their subconscious (dream selves) and conscious and since (with the exception of Jade), they weren't acclimated to their subconscious self (i.e. weren't awake in their other mind), they were unable to see their subconscious lashing out against them (i.e. the doodles) until they woke up and became a more whole person by acknowledging and accepting their other side.
It was kind of cerebral at the time, but in the end didn't really amount to jack shit.
Honestly at this point, I'd rather all the trolls be more in the background, if not get negated completely. At least then the fandom wouldn't have been as much of a terrible influence for Hussie.
post-timeskip Terezi was a different character than pre-timeskip Terezi.
It's like someone abducted her and replaced her with a whinier shittier version.
And post time-skip when they were on that lillypad, she was basically Vriska's yes-woman. Never did I witness such a character derailment as hers.
>Karkat is now forever a strilonde sex toy
>Dave hetero and Dave homo shippers are arguing against each other
>fucking Vriska is a better leader and got a nice permadeath
Fuck. Fuck that shitty mary sue getting all the good shit.
because at least his killing is indiscriminate, and he puts an end to their suffering quickly.
being a crazy clown is one thing, and just makes you a not particularly loathsome villan.
but no amount of character development can justify or repay "APOLOGIZE FOR BEING CRIPPLED" and the like while still being accepted and seen as not a threat or terrible person by the heroes. not only that, but she dares to take the role as the main character, and constantly claims to be morally right.
It was the 413 motif, Johns Bday, the start of the game, Dad's handle, It made it pretty clear there were going to be subtle hints at stuff.
Also I did read PS so dumb bullshit is expected
Damn thats a solid tune.
Imagine Let The Morning Come Soon, except instead of passing Cronus around, they pass around
>Jade won't use god tier space powers to shrink Karkat down to the size of a sex toy
>Dave won't use god tier time powers to freeze Karkat in place
>The epilogue won't have a tiny statue-ized, but still conscious, Karkat being used for carnal relations by anyone who happens to be within grabbing distance
Missed opportunity if you ask me.
Not really. More that she's more desperate than ever. Three years in solitude after a single day of interacting with real people and thirteen years alone before that?
She'd want it bad. And by it I mean a loving relationship.
Caliborn didn't get a bad ending, we didn't even see LE die. For all we know, he grabbed Vriska in his claws, gnawed her head off and fucked her raw while she died between his jaws.
>wanting him near any characters
So we only have 9 humans left, at least 7 of which who would even be down to procreate with the opposite sex. Assuming they can't ectobiologically resurrect/clone people with different genes from Earth from before things went to shit, which pairs are you rooting for?
Damn it, I dont want it to be lame shit
I feel sorry for that person's friends
He works best by being a smarmy cunt who thinks of the most hilarious ways to mess up people's suggestions, like some sort of literary genie who exclusively types his stories with his mangled monkey paws
I think he still writes his stories with two monkey's paws. Readers wanted Rosemary, so they got it, and neither character was good afterwards. Readers wanted Daverezi, so they got it, offscreen, and both characters suffered tremendously afterwards, etc.
Man, so much of this is a trip down memory lane
>We get to see a liveblogger slowly begin to lose all hope and faith in the comic they're adoring, becoming more and more like the typical HSG poster as they hate Homestuck yet want to discuss it
Rosemary was a bad ship from the get go
Everyone wants to ship without thinking about how the characters would actually react to eachother, they are blinded by porn and feelings
Daverezi didn't work out because the plot demanded it, which is why it happened offscreen and with minimal fall out
see y'all in the epilogue i hope quite possibly
There are tons of cosplays of that though.
None of which I can post because they're all horrifically NSFW
I always preferred mollywhop, or xenophiliacbroad.
Sounds like a really good piece. Do finish it anon
I don't know if I can motivate you anon
At the moment I'm trying to churn out three pesterlogs for my
Karkat<>Kanaya<3Rose<3<Karkat Moirail Spitroast fic
If it makes you feel any better MAJOR FUCKING SPOILER WWOWOWWOWOWWOOWOWOWOOWOWO
John gets that weapon (or at least something equivalent to it in strength) later in the story, called the Warhammer of Zillyhoo
