Homestuck General

Post by Buzzy Beetle » Fri Jan 11, 2013 5:54 pm

Yunno, we have a bunch of Homestuck readers here but I don't think we ever really talk about it.

The most recent updates (1/11/2013) have made me go OHMYGOD so I think we aught to have a thread about it.

However, please be kind to those who are not caught up. We have spoiler tags so please make use of them!

Let's do it man. Let's make it happen.

Yeah, I've been a reader since actually 6-12-12, because a close friend of mine wanted to start reading on a pretty well known "date" in Homestuck. So I guess after reading it and catching up, I sorta got sucked into it. Especially after my friend I read it with started getting really into the details and the deep story aspects of the comic. It sorta rubbed off on me and I became fond of it.

Although a good majority of the fandom I am not fond of, for obvious reasons I suppose. But hey, my experiences with a more sane part of the fandom were rather pleasant, so I am not complaining C:

As for the recent update
VIEW CONTENT:
Um, oh my goodness. I don't even know where to start. Lately I've been really relating with Jane and her breakdown over the birthday shenanigans and the game getting to her and Jake just being a naive butt crack about things, but after the flash on 1/08/13 I just really got caught off guard by the Trickster mode xD

Also, apparantly on tumblr people went nuts over this, because apparantly some do-do heads forgot that Tricksters were canon since Act 1 and not some fanon randomness. And some people went insane in a way that was so facepalm worthy because they were saying things like "WTF HUSSIE" and "OMG IM GOING TO STOP READING BECAUSE OF THE TRICKSTERS BECOMING CANON. It was....rather silly.

Yep, that sounds like some Act 5 Act 1 to me!

Also, regarding the most recent update
VIEW CONTENT:
It's been making some serious waves because everyone's anticipating Jane's aspect inversion (like how Rose had an inversion when she went grimdark) to be an absolute terror and then we get... THIS.

I really have no idea how to approach SUDDENLY TRICKSTER. But it'd be hilarious of the Alpha kids ended up being four tricksters while the beta kids are four gods.

Also other stuff. So much other stuff... Too much to remember right now.

He changed it. :( But after reading the tumblr post about it I'm officially ok with the change.

Also, update reaction:

Even if you hover over both 'no' and 'f*** no' options it turns into YES!
I'm just getting into Act 6 for myself, since I pretty much knew bits and pieces anyway from updates happening real time, tumblr reactions, and my friend explaining certain scenes for me.

)(IC....her quirk or just general speaking habit is so not what I expected, but I really should have seen it coming from people trying to perpetuate a "ghetto fab" image with her. Don't quote me on that though xD

I stopped following after a while because I thought it got needlessly obtuse.

Yeah, I had problems with it at the beginning. You will get used to it.



Still completely lost, today's update did not help.
