alpha /co/ started a project to bide their time with during the hiatus.

It is the story of the personifications of the 4 biggest Homestuck fanbases (HSG threads on /co/, Tumblr, MSPAF, and DA) playing a game of Sburb together.

On a fundamental level, MSPAF is an incredibly polite, friendly young man who just wants everyone around him to get along. The fact that the fanbase is so split up and antagonistic is incredibly distressing to him. To this end, he thinks the best way to keep everyone happy is to move lockstep with the (perceived) wishes of The Storyteller and His Enforcers. He is always sure to read exactly what is written, and never assume anything more. He will only read fanfiction if it is a canon pairing, and is always sure to make note of even the slightest differences between the fanfiction author’s portrayal and the “true” portrayal. He only buys commissions from artists who have officially contacted The Storyteller, and is mortified by the idea of others not doing the same. While he genuinely believes following all the rules is the only way to friendship, he doesn’t enforce them on anyone. He believes that everyone will come round on their own, and everyone will be happy then. However, he isn’t an absolute boyscout. When nobody else is watching, MSPAF loves Kanaya<3Jade, a non-canon ship involving an unconfirmed sexuality. He believes they’re absolutely adorable, and would make each other very happy. However, he feels incredibly guilty about this, like he’s betraying his beloved Storyteller.

When in the Medium, he is the only one who knows all about the particular canon sburb mechanics. This knowledge, combined with his desire for everyone to get along, would make him an ideal leader, if not for his passiveness and the crew’s lack of respect for his authority. Just as it was outside the medium, sometimes everyone forgets he exists, and even when they do remember him they don’t acknowledge him as the hero he is, or is supposed to be. He wants to follow the rules and play the game “right,” to claim the ultimate reward, but he’s mostly alone in that regard.

He sticks to “safe” jokes like tired Homestuck memes in an effort to be acknowledged, but all it does is annoy HSG and Tumblr. DA will laugh, but she’ll laugh at pretty much anything, so it’s not much consolation.

MSPAF and Tumblr are on respectable terms. He admires her passion and creativity, and she appreciates how he isn’t a sexist!pig. However, the two clash on a fundamental philosophical level, where MSPAF loves rules and tradition and that is opposite to who Tumblr believes herself to be. Innocent comments from MSPAF sometimes turn into huge storms, usually involving the word “privilege,” and he feels terrible for working her up so much.

HSG and MSPAF are sort of friends. While HSG finds the other kind of hokey and boring, the two have fun when they’ve loosened up. However, some of HSG’s shadier practices disturb MSPAF, and there are aspects of him that MSPAF finds outright disturbing. Knowing this, HSG likes teasing him in an affectionate, younger brotherly sort of way, though the relationship doesn’t extend further than that. HSG’s blatant and almost antagonistic disregard for rules will often put them on the opposite of issues, but discussions rarely become heated. They’re mostly cordial, except when HSG forgets MSPAF is around.

Out of everyone, MSPAF is the closest to DA. He listens to her fanfic ideas, though he doesn’t read them, and will often leave a friendly comment on her art, legitimately thinking it worthy of praise. She is the only one who will laugh at his lame jokes, and is the only one who acknowledges him as leader and The Hero.

He has an issue with how all three warp or destroy canon in their own ways, bringing it up occasionally, but his own Jade/Kayana guilt keeps it in check.

All in all, MSPAF is “safe.” He’s decked out in grey, uses non-offensive humour, loves rules and wants everyone to be friends. But there’s more to him than that, and we don’t know if he can break through that comfort zone, and become more than who he is.

Tumblr is your standard issue whitebread girl, and she cannot fucking stand it. She desperately wants to be some sort of oppressed minority, Were that the case, she would have an “excuse” for her insecurities and so on, something she could “blame.” To that end, she dressed androgynously and occasionally comes up with new and exciting ways of defining her sexuality. She is incredibly politically correct and an activist for pretty much everything, setting herself up as a an accepting type, despite her inherent judgementalness. She is always sure to include trigger warnings for even the most minute elements, and will berate and crusade against even the slightest faux-pas (dropping a “cripple,” for example) from anyone else. Tumblr thinks of herself as the most mature of the group, justifying her own indulgences like shipping and non-canon writings.

On principle, she likes and values DA more than HSG or MSPAF, as DA is female. However, she finds her personally annoying, as the younger girl reminds her uncomfortably of her own childhood attitudes. While she will defend DA from HSG, leading to the aforementioned “big sister complex” from DA, she sees it more as defending an ideal against a cultural attack than trying to help a person.

Most of the time, Tumblr will ignore HSG. Or, at least she will try. She hates his rudeness, insensitivity, lack of respect, and a billion other things. However, she secretly enjoys some of his antics. On some level, she wants HSG to “come over” to her way of thinking, but on a deeper level, she enjoys having a counterpoint. Still, with these two, it;s almost always antagonism.

MSPAF is okay, for a guy. Like everyone else, she sometimes forgets his existence, and is somewhat annoyed by his Homestuck meme dropping. However, he isn’t actively offensive, and as such they are on cordial terms. However, she cannot stand his incessant love for rules, regulation, and tradition, as that is completely opposite to how she defines herself.

Being a talented artist, she’s actually full of creativity and brilliance. If you catch her on a good day, she’s actually quite kind. If.

HSG is ridiculously moody, and the success of any sort of interaction with him is up to chance. Talk to him in the morning, he might be terse and non-communicative. Later, he might be playful and sociable. Later still, he may be venomous and hurtful. And, once in a while, well, he just might be the chilliest motherfucker you ever did meet. All of these different moods and habits combine to form a sort of collective person, with the general core qualities of wicked playfulness, subversiveness, a love of the non-conventional and a curious mind. Unfortunately, HSG’s reputation precedes him. Due to the nature of his mood, he’s mostly known for being kind of a ridiculous jerk. He would be the first to agree with this assessment, and also the first to disagree, laying a significant portion of the blame onto those who are too sensitive or those who he feels deserve his ire. He hates hypocrisy, loving to point it out in others, yet being strangely silent about his own faults. The irony is not lost on him, and he frequently, but internally, berates himself for it. A strange mix of self-loathing and self-superiority emerge, leading to conflicting feelings about both his own qualities and those around him. HSG’s policy on what he deems acceptable and unacceptable on a given day puts him at a weird position relative to the others. Something as innocuous as loving the trolls over the kids may set him off, but the craziest porn and most disturbing scenarios don’t at all faze him.

On some level, he’s aware of the consequences of his behaviour. He alienates potential friends, infuriates those who do tolerate him, and generates no end of trouble for himself. Every day, he grows a bit lonelier and a bit more isolated from the rest of the world. But, in the end, this collection of moods and behaviours is “who he is.” What else can he do? So he drives himself, almost gleefully, down this isolationist and self-destructive path. How low can he get? Nobody knows, but he’s sure as hell going to enjoy the ride.

HSG and Tumblr are alike in many ways. Both have a serious distain for the rules, both consider themselves somehow more mature than their counterparts, and both are filled to the brim with ridiculous bullshit. She is the one person who will not tolerate any of his bullshit, calling him out whenever he starts acting out of turn. At once, he loves and hates this, leading to ridiculous emotional confusion and difficulty sorting out his feelings. All he can do is respond in kind, calling her out on all her bullshit and pretence and setting up a wonderfully adversarial relationship. Tumblr’s affectations of acceptance, over-sensitivity, inflated identity and penchant for drama make her an easy target for HSG’s playful antagonism, taking every opportunity to offend her sensibilities or piss her off. Her’s obsession with shipping infuriates HSG; he expects it from DA but wishes Tumblr was “above” it all. Still, he sees her creativity/talent she pours into her works and genuinely admires it, though such admiration may be tainted with a twinge of jealousy.

Out of the three, HSG is probably on the best terms with MSPAF, at least when he makes himself visible. While MSPAF is a stickler for rules and HSG spends his days subverting them, HSG considers the other male a “good kid” and is oddly affectionate towards him. Here and there, he may do something to shock his young friend, but it’s never too serious and always well-intentioned. On some level, however, HSG resents MSPAF’s vocal and implied disapproval and disgust towards his seedier qualities, but tries not to let such resentment be known. He worries about MSPAF’s seeming lack of spine, genuinely concerned about the boy’s future in an environment that isn’t so sheltered.

DA has a crush on HSG. It is completely and totally non-requited. Almost everything she does and says pisses him off on a fundamental, instinctual level, and he has absolutely no reservations about making this known. She is oblivious all the while, and continues her assault. On some level, HSG realizes that DA doesn’t actually like him. She just likes her idea idea of him, of an angry yet lonely hero easily paired with the bubbly, happy-go-lucky-heroine. She doesn’t love him, she just ships herself with him. Just like her Japanese Animes.

Like all the characters, DA has significant identity issues. In her case, she’s an obsessive weeaboo fangirl. In reality, she’s very talented for her age, and could one day surpass Tumblr and become a real artist. Unfortunately, she spends all her time drawing terrible anime art, because her identiy as a weeaboo is all she really has. At her core, she’s a kindhearted romantic, and wants to express herself as such. This manifests as her obsessive crush on HSG, which is rebuffed at every opportunity. The long term effect of such is unknown, but the fact she keeps on seeking affection from such a source is troubling and indicative of some deeper issues.

She looks up to Tumblr like a big sister. She’s so cool and confident, knows exactly who she is, is internet popular, and all that. She wants to BE tumblr, or, at least, the person she believes tumblr to be. But since tumblr will often hammer home how much better she is, this is also emotionally unhealthy.

>he's not really like kanaya at all
A polite, well mannered person who wants to mediate the groups relationships and is a techinal expert in the game doesn't sound just a teensy bit familar? Even has a "no one must no my secret" love for some shipping (as opposed to trash vampire novels)

>hsg isn't anything like dave
Moody, sometimes mad chill, hates himself, thinks he's hot shit. Great friends with the goody goody. Most like the smarmy smart girl. No self persecuting you say? dumbass

>isn't anything like karkat besides anger
as I've said, the self hating bit comes into play here. not to mention the "autist" artsy girl unrequited crush? seriously?

>tumblr isn't anything like rose or sollux
Really? The whitest girl you know thats chock full of fucking insecurities, snarkiness and thinks that she's the oldest one of the bunch doesn't ring a bell? I'll give you that she's the most original of the bunch but that doesn't mean much. no idea how he got sollux out of that

>t where the fuck does jade factor in there????

So you're basically saying that Homestuck invented these character archetypes.

Your comparisons with Tumblr and MSPAF fall pretty flat, but I'll give you that HSG and DA act far too much like Karkat and Nepeta.

Of course Nepeta and DA are similar, they are based on the same type of person.
>> No. 49854

thats a stupid excuse. no matter if homestuck made the archetype or not, allowing a character to follow the same archetype as another (especially when one of them is a fancharacter) is still just as unoriginal and bland. instead of allowing characters to fall into basic and boring molds, how about expanding them or changing them? HSG is not Karkat, MSPAF is not John. Since when has Tumblr ever liked HSG at all (the two can't stand each other, both think the other is the worst part of the fanbase)? If the people making this AU analyzed the relationships between the websites and threw a little creativity into the mix then there wouldn't be so many glaring similarities to the comic

well considering this is conceptual and driven by a large number of people a few of those things aren't universally held characterizations, some others are pretty generalized, and others are accurate.

mspaf mediating the group's relationships... doesn't really happen? I mean i guess he'd like it if they got along but that doesn't really go anywhere. I have seen the secret shipping thing and personally think that's dumb because the forums don't exactly make a secret of their shipping. Kanaya wasn't really demonstrated to be a technical ace, she just read Rose's walkthrough which covered the basic aspects, some more recent stuff /is/ painting mspaf as an ace player but that's never really been a kanaya thing. he also doesn't have any of kanaya's romance issues, and his similarities to john go about as far as being friendly and a little naive, the latter of which i'd say isn't as extreme in his case.

what you're left with there is a polite friendly guy who's good at the game. if you really look at that and only see a john kanaya hybrid character and that's it i don't really know what to say

as for hsg, i am going to keep saying i have not seen much of anything indicating a self hating character. maybe it's the case? but it definitely doesn't play much of a part compared to with dave and karkat. he's sleezy and perverse, thinks he's awesome but isn't really that great at anything except being sleezy and perverse. I've also seen some people suggest him as being bros with mspaf, but not very much, and frankly that's pretty dumb and he's probably friends with mspaf as much as anyone else is.

i HAVE seen a LOT of da having a crush on hsg stuff and agree with you and think that's really stupid and shouldn't be the case at all

the tumblr stuff you mentioned is an extremely common archetype, honestly. it's true fo sho but i've never seen her written much like rose at all

aside from the having a thing for "cool kids" (which also sort of relies on hsg being that much like dave which i still disagree about), everything you said is nepeta-esque rather than jade-esque, and, as i mentioned above i agree that that crush is stupid. I don't think anyone is thinking she should become the more mature one. at all. But all in all, yeah, she's the same archetype as nepeta but portrayed in an even more negative sense. they are kind of both parodying the same kind of people after all

because the whole metastuck concept is a fucking joke that largely intends to make fun of the websites it incorporates you twat

I'm not really seeing this "exactly". I mean, I suppose they do share some traits common in fiction, but that's about it.

because portraying MSPAF as a sweet and loving person who will do no wrong totally pokes fun at em eh? also, why poke fun at a fanbase when its already been done to death in the goddamn comic the adventure is based on? the laugh pile doesnt stop from getting taller.

you are right, this au IS a joke

so are all the characters

mspaf is also completely spineless and ineffectual.

I was thinking about writing a log demonstrating how da COULD type like a sensible person if she really wanted to. Ironically this could still be considered Nepeta-esque
cause it was a tumblr fad to take pictures of yourself in thighhighs and panties for a while. And she alchemized rocket thighhighs

For the record, MSPAF's flaw is supposed to be that he's a huge stick in the mud and so bland that nobody pays attention to him.

i'd have gone for scene kid DA over generic fat weeaboo personally. this character and nepeta were both based on the same stereotype, which tends to be what outsiders think of when they think of bad shit on deviantart, but i've been on the inside and the most obnoxious part is definitely the hardxcore camwhoring scene kids instead.
>> No. 49889
well yeah that's obviously the downfall of the whole thing. the stereotypes are lazy and formulaic, and too filtered through a lense of wish fulfillment to strike real self-depreciating humor.
also tumblr is straight up 'the shy nerdy gf i wish i had *SIGHHHH*'.
fuck that noise

the whole thing is horsehit for idtiots, like that board-tans thing from a couple years back
it was fucing stupid back then too

If you consider Tumblr to be a fantasy girlfriend that really says more about you than anyone else.

YMMV. Your experience is obviously different from my experience, because I see way more weaboos than scenekids. Even DA's front page of recent uploads is consistently half anime/manga related.
>> No. 49893
yeah they're definitely the majority. but also there is a huge overlap where most of the scene kids are also weeaboos, just not the sweaty overexcitable hambeast sort of weeaboos like the kind DA is based on (and nepeta, who subverted it by only being a hambeast in spirit). it feels like the people who thought her up have gone mostly off the most well-known negative stereotype because they don't really go to deviantart, which means they are making fun of something they don't really understand and as a result the character feels cardboard cutout-y. >>49602 doesn't have much to say about her and as far as i can tell she is mostly used as a joke character because no one knows what the fuck to do with her.

This would be such a cute idea if these personifications were generally terrible, socially-awkward, but well-meaning people. You can definitely tell when an artist is picturing their "patron" site through a tinted lens.

I'm kinda looking at HSG and Tumblr specifically here. Wait. No. Mostly Tumblr since outside of it's social justice obsession, it's usually cattier and just as bad as DA with its memes (all the gogs). Wouldn't they get along with DA anyways considering they give them shoutouts by reblogging content?
>> No. 49902
why does this dumb au get stuff made for it when the best au "wrestlestuck" where all the homestucks are professional wrestlers receives no fanart at all :[
>> No. 49903
Because metastuck doesn't require any imagination.
>> No. 49904
why hasn't anyone noticed that it's essentially the 4chan board-tans?
I mean, you've got /v/, /a/, /tg/ and /cgl/'s personalities with slightly altered physical features (and I mean slightly, /a/ is pretty much the exact same as tumblr)
the only thing missing is their respective board hobbies and you've replaced that with dildos and my little pony
>> No. 49906
this is actually a good idea. Everyone else in this thread just pissing and moaning is being retarded though.
