Any thoughts on how Slick being alive in Hussie's world will effect the story at large? I'd love to see a three-Jack meetup at some point.

Yeah, but Hussie's a lying monster with no human soul

Pretty sure he's only permitted to live because one way or another he's out of the story. Kind of like Ms. Paint!
>> No. 62965
Yeah. He's "alive" here but only because he's permadead in the actual story.
>> No. 62967
It could be somehow related to the Alpha Jack Noir sleeping right now.
As in, this is the dream he has when he sleeps. Being babyfed by a strange man in a troll costume.
I might have meant to say nightmare.
>> No. 62968
So Alpha Jack Noir's dreamself is.... Alpha Jack Noir?!?!
>> No. 62969
No, no. Alpha Jack Noir is the Jack Noir that was clocked by the White Queen in Jane's session. The Jack Noir that's being taken care of seems to be the Jack Noir that blew up Snowman's troll universe heart thing.
So Alpha Jack Noir would be dreaming about Spades Slick, I guess? And Bec Noir is flying through sessions.
Basically, we've seen three iterations of Jack Noir and I don't think a single one of them have died yet.
>> No. 62970

Is it safe to assume Hussie likes Jack too much to ever kill him off?
>> No. 62971
He was originally going to be the next main character.

Of course Hussie fuckin' loves him.

Hussie said their traveling is only like, 3 milliseconds in his time. That seems to imply that, from the time Hussie put the coat over the fourth walls to now, they probably passed through. It seems unlikely that LE will be able to do much to them, or that he'd even care to right now.

John and Rose vs. Jack would have been, too, but it wasn't.
Probably other instances, too.
Given an opportunity, Hussie will always choose "joke" over "epic showdown". And given that his in-comic avatar has, to this point, done nothing but make jokes . . .

(ok except that one time that it actually affected the story, but that was fucking hilarious anyway)
>> No. 63007
>good in making fight scenes

HAHAHAHAHA, good joke.
>> No. 63008
I don't think this is going to be epic. I don't think it's going to be a joke. I think it's going to be short and brutal and no fight at all.

I think Lord English is going to kill Hussie's avatar and we won't have a narrator any more. He's going to use brute force to change the very structure of the narrative.
>> No. 63018
the problem with this is that he's carrying the head of hussie's robot. if the obvious implication (he killed it) is true, then...
1) he can move at the same speed as hussie's robot, i.e. fast enough to affect the boat before it makes it to B2
2) he met hussie's robot, which means he might very well have already been in the room where all that nonsense is happening

so while nothing lord english does from now on is likely to affect john and jade's transit, there's a real worry that something has already happened.

As obnoxious as these memos are, I have to say: It's about time. Everyone knew Karkat's blood color and didn't really give a shit. It makes sense that he'd eventually stop typing in gray.

But that means he noow types in the same colour as Dave.

And really, why DOES he need to type in his blood colour?

>> No. 63074
Can you really fault Hussie for not SDTing absolutely everything when there's so much stuff happening?

I mean let's take one really specific example. How about.... Die's voodoo doll. Hussie tells us "you're gonna jump to a timeline where he's dead." Okay. How much does that actually tell us, as opposed to what we're shown? We already saw Die use his power a bit earlier, and we already knew that he jumped from a place/time where Itchy was alive to a place/time where he was dead. So the only thing it's really telling us is that he wasn't arriving from the past or the future. That would have taken fucking forever to show. Like, you could dedicate a story arc the entire length of the intermission to showing just that and not much else. It would just be a huge waste of time HAR HAR HAR.

How about the stuff we were shown? Let's see. Inserting and removing pins triggers the time jumps. Each pin corresponds to a character. Timeline selection is predicated on the deaths of the characters whose pins are inserted. We learned this stuff by observing how Die used the doll before Slick killed him. It didn't actually get explained. Every time the rules were mentioned thereafter, it was in a way that assumed the reader already understood more or less how it worked.

A ton of other stuff has gone down exactly the same way. A lot more stuff has never been explained at all. What the fuck are fraymotifs? We've never been explicitly told, but we saw a couple in action. Is that enough showing? How much is enough, anyway? Does it have to be 100%? Is it just not permissible to have any telling at all?
>> No. 63077
>>What the fuck are fraymotifs?

Special moves in the game, what the hell aren't you grasping about them?
>> No. 63078
>yfw this is all in preparation for UU/uu and Karkat talking, so we don't have walls and walls of varying degrees of gray, like in the past.
>> No. 63079
Haaaa, Karkat, how I have missed your memos!
>> No. 63080
He knows that, you idiot. He says as much in the very post you're quoting. His point is that it's never actually said, but only shown.
>> No. 63081
Admittedly there's a big difference between never outright explaining something but still making it clear what happened and how it works, thanks to a general assumption of intelligence and knowledge of basic video game tropes on the part of the reader (such as in the case of fraymotifs) and "Ha ha, man remember when X happened that was crazy too bad it'll never be explicitly depicted onscreen".

That being said, I think that we can assume that the kids/trolls roadtrip through the hell dimension is shaping up to more or less lack offscreen character development and be more like the Homestuck sitcom in space we'll never see.

>Huh, Karkat losing Terezi to Dave or something? Ugh not the kind of drama I enjoy.
Less that and more him worrying that he'll lose her.
>> No. 63086
Well, people have been theorizing from early Act 5 that Karkat and Terezi would wind up living out the typical flirtation-conflict-happy end (or something like that) plot arc that tends to feature in his favorite genre. So maybe this is all part of that narrative obstacle in the middle - which, as >>63085 notes, hasn't really been directly dealt with yet.
>> No. 63087
Also, I think those all end with the protagonist getting back together with her. Then again, sometimes the protagonist was actually the "other guy" in the first place?????? And it would be weird if Dave were in the Dane Cook position considering his blog posts.

So now I'm confused. And everything is as it should be.
>> No. 63088
Personally I can't wait to see what happens in the dream bubble they're about to pass through. It would be a little lame if it were the same trip we already saw Roxy take, but I'm probably saying that because I don't know what everyone else could have been talking about. Probably interesting things we'll never hear. ):

Oh, but wait, Roxy's dream trip was when everyone else who's alive (or at least Rose) were asleep. Maybe it will be a different bubble? Or maybe they'll be there in dreams as well as physically like the kind of weird time stuff that's supposed to happen in the Furthest Ring.
>> No. 63089
I guess it's worth noting that when people are overly anxious about their girlfriend breaking up with them and moving onto this one other guy, she often does. Not because anything you believed she may be thinking behind your back was initially true, but because having to deal with crippling insecurity, mistrust and undue jealousy is annoying as fuck to deal with on a constant basis.

If that's what's happening here, I love you Karkat, but this was totally your fault dude. Like 100% totally your fault and I'm not feeling for you at all here.

Lifey Thing Confirmed for Heals++
Feferi's Lifey Thing is her blood color, not light blue like Jane's. Maybe specific powers aren't tied so strongly to the aspect colors?

What does this MEAN?
>> No. 63095
it means that some aesthetics of god tier powers are tied to a player's personal mythos. jane's color is blue, and feferi's is amaranth, so their powers are colored accordingly.

it's like aradia's ghost zero wings, or vriska's 7+1 pip wings.

They can't leave the dream bubbles. They are prisoners in the dream bubbles except Sollux who's a half-ghost.
>> No. 63110
The Furthest Ring has certain traits that limit its effectiveness as an emergency response to death and failure:
1) Dreaming ghosts probably can't leave the bubbles.
2) It is almost impossible to find one's way to a particular destination.

So while these rest stops offer our heroes some insurance on their way to the B2 session, they're not a thing they'll be able to double back and exploit once they arrive.
>> No. 63113
Isn't that exactly what Karkat was talking about?
>> No. 63114

Exactly. Recall that Rose was able to select THE most fortuitous path for them not only to reach their destination but to complete all their objectives, including getting there safe with hopefully (haha Eridan) as many advantages as possible. Not a guarantee or free pass to anything by any means, mind you. They don't get infinite help and they only have one shot, but it is the Seer's job to thread the eye of the needle.

What I'm honestly interested in seeing right now is what a fully realized Prince of Hope and Witch of Life can do, and what that illuminates about the Prince and Witch classes, as well as the Hope and Life aspects. How does a Maid differ from a Witch? What exactly is in the domain of Life versus Doom? What does Hope even represent as an aspect? What are the limits on how loosely the Prince title interprets "one who destroys x, or caUses destrUction throUgh x,"?

I'm just a terrible metagamer and will now stop typing questions and instead begin patiently waiting to (hopefully (Eridan haha)) get the answers as we go.
>> No. 63115

This is one of the more messed up points in the story. Imagine an alternative timeline where the trolls played the game correctly, doing their sidequest, listening to the choice their Denizen tells them, not rushing the game, everyone getting godtier, making a healthy universe and leanring valuable lessons, only to find out that's not what the Elder Gods have planned in your fate.
>> No. 63117
Yeah, but we've seen people can survive when not in the 'right' universe, its not a total death sentance like when you time travel without looping is it?
...Unless they only survived long enough to cross over into the 'right' universe so they could play thier role?
This really is fucked up.
>> No. 63119
I could see why Karkat's bitching to himself. He should talk to Rose about it or something.
>> No. 63121
>making a healthy universe

I doubt Paradox Space allowed them to get that far, or the tadpole universe died at some point.
>> No. 63122
Great to see Feferi again, but wow that is the worst color combo ever.
>> No. 63124
So now that he's addressed the issue, will Hussie actually DO something about death being meaningless, or is he just typing all this because he thinks it'll make people shut up? Calling one's self out like this is pointless unless you intend to try to change.
>> No. 63125

Everything we've seen so far indicates that Karkat is WRONG about what makes a doomed timeline. It's nobody's whim and the Noble Circle have nothing to do with it.

A doomed timeline is one in which there's an irreconcilable causal paradox. Nothing more, nothing less.

A timeline in which the trolls all God Tier'd and trivially beat Jack down when he appeared would result in them never thinking to look for and troll the kids, which would result in Vriska never creating Jack, which would be a paradox. Doomed Timeline.

A timeline in which the trolls created a perfectly healthy universe would not produce Jack at all. Without Jack to destroy the human universe at the same circumstantially simultaneous point Snowman died in the troll universe, the Green Sun would never be born, but Lord English was Already Here. Various "if this happens the Sun won't be born" paradoxes have been the main cause of paradoxes to this point, because most of the actors involved didn't KNOW this had to be a stable time loop. In any case: Doomed Timeline.

It also works for smaller things. A timeline in which John dies due to Terezi's influence? He can't have a conversation Karkat had already had with him. Doomed Timeline. A timeline in which Jack kills Karkat and Terezi and then duels Vriska? Kar and Ter from after the Critical Moment can't message their past selves about trolling the humans. Doomed Timeline.

Now, if this is WRONG, and the horrorterrors or indeed ANYONE is making a "decision" on what timeline is doomed or not, then we've been deliberately misled on a massive scale by everything in the comic to this point. Which is possible!

It's also possible that Karkat's horrorterror phobia and existential angst are leading him to misunderstand the situation.

It's also possible that Dave (dick) and Aradia (busy) never actually EXPLAINED how it works to Karkat. :)
>> No. 63128

Also note that maybe they didn't explain this to him simply because he didn't ask and thus they don't know he's wondering about that.

And as a final note, this is how Vriska justified creating Jack (her worst crime by far) and she was right. Preventing jack from being created would have ended in failure at best (or worse, doomed them all), while introducing herself as Jack's cause made her better able to defeat him (as it is Paradox Space's nature to have the cause of a problem also be its solution).
>> No. 63131
>It's also possible that Dave (dick) and Aradia (busy) never actually EXPLAINED how it works to Karkat. :)

As a HUEG fan of Earthbound, I was pretty happy about this little easter egg in the latest update.

That little device against the wall in the back is called the Instant Revitalizer, an invention of Dr. Andonuts, the father of Jeff from Earthbound. It was pretty sweet because it would instantly restore all of your party's HP and PP for free, better than a hotel.

I'm just happy Hussie is still throwing in little things like this.

Very good! Now, who caught that the bookshelf, some of the books, the piece of paper on the bottom-left and the lollipops on the top-right are from Chrono Trigger? Or that some of the plants are borrowed from Secret of Mana?

man, what the fuck was I doing with my childhood
>> No. 63157
Just to establish more nerd cred, I recognized both sets of things you named, but I just really really liked Earthbound a lot more than either of those games (though Chrono Trigger was still completely boss), so I completely ignored them. d:

Also, what's the chances we'll get to see John and Jade this intermission, do you think? I honestly want to see what shenanigans they're doing on all the planets they have. You just know it'll be something cool.
>> No. 63158
I'd say the probability for that is 1.
That's the point of these intermissions after all. To get us up to date with the original characters, in regular intervals, until the big meetup.

I'm pretty sure the gramaphone is from Final Fantasy VI.
>> No. 63160
At first glance I assumed that vita pod was the one from Chrono Trigger not Earthbound. The two look strikingly similar anyway.

Can anyone actually claim nerd cred for recognizing stuff from those two games? Especially considering the fan base you're dealing with here.
>> No. 63161
i love you guys

I bet John and Jade have been hard at work moving in, so to speak. Humanizing the place a little. John definitely seems like (source: absolutely nowhere) the type to need a familiar environment, especially since the fiasco with Dad. Or maybe they brought emissaries from all the lands and united them under a banner of colorful hats, vandalized bedsheets and sweet jam sessions. :v

Hmm, a lot of practical considerations just occurred to me since they're all living on a meteor or a ship for 3 years.

How/who do they get to cut their hair? (Rose still obviously favors the short and practical)
If you go God Tier do you stop being a filthy mortal and you just never get dirty anymore? What about their clothes?
Where do they take baths?
How do they do laundry?
What about food?
Do God Tiers need to worry about food and water, for that matter? (John said he was getting hungry last intermission)
Or air? (Paradox Space seems filled with air anyway)
Or sleep? (I know they nap for dream bubble times, but do they need it like mere mortals do?)
They still seem fleshy enough to kill with swords, so do they still need sustenance?
Or do they simply starve to death, turns out that was neither heroic nor just, and revive?

As an aside, I would friggin love to play a game like SBURB then get three years to read the infinite fluff it provides in huge tomes on a meteor.

You mean it might not be Rose that's been purposefully neglectful guardian to Roxy? Because that'd be awful.
>> No. 63216
Nice catch. And I was all about to get my explain on, too.

Pretty much the Post-Scratch session being the one where ectobiology happens (rather than the Pre-Scratch session) is the "Lord English glitch" Doc Scratch was talking about. And he talked about it in exactly as vague a way as was needed to keep us guessing until now.

So yeah, even though I was totally behind the "Pre- and Post-Scratch sessions have their own ectobilogy" theory, I will have to eat crow today.
caw caw motherfuckers

So basically Beat Mesa provided the retroactive TimeSpace energy to bifurcate the defense portals, thereby creating an Alternate Reality that ISN'T a doomed timeline (necessarily).

Or if you think about it, when Lord English isn't involved, causing a Scratch is basically specifying your current universe/session as a "Doomed Timeline" and going back and changing one thing to make the new universe/session into the "Alpha Timeline", just like when Dave traveled back in time to save John and became Davesprite. Just on a much bigger scale.

Just as from the "Alpha Timeline's" point of view the Dave that became Davesprite "came from nowhere" (really came from the "Beta Timeline"), the players and ancestors that populate the Post-Scratch Universe/Session "came from nowhere" (actually came from the Pre-Scratch Universe).

So really what happened isn't truly anything completely new that we've never had the ideas for. It's just a lot bigger.
>> No. 63217
The weird thing being that the Condesce and all the shit about Jake imply pretty fucking hard that LE is involved somehow.
Which is weird.
>> No. 63218
Ok, so it was my thought originally that every session had an ectobiology excursion. This has since been proven wrong. Now, it seems that only Pre-Scratch sessions do that.

Here's the problem I'm seeing. The trolls had an ectobiology session AND were a Post-Scratch session. How can this be? If the original trolls made themselves and the Scratched trolls like the kids' session suggests, then who did the trolls we know create when Karkat made two sets of trolls? This would imply that the teens' will have an ectobiology moment.

Unless that whole business was in regards to Void Sessions, then I just don't know anymore.
>> No. 63219
The second set of trolls Karkat made were just the ancestors. The pre-Scratch trolls were presumably made by the same gate-diverting process we just saw, just in the opposite direction. That is, from post- to pre-Scratch, not the other way around. Hence the "this session was not the one in which they had been spawned".

It's quite possible that this reversal of direction is LE's calling card, because it forces the original universe to Scratch in order to avoid a paradox (the players and guardians coming from nowhere).

The only weird thing about this is that it implies that LE is not interested in the B universes (no calling card there), when we've clearly seen the Condesce and all hat Jake bullshit in those very universes.
>> No. 63220
>The only weird thing about this is that it implies that LE is not interested in the B universes (no calling card there), when we've clearly seen the Condesce and all hat Jake bullshit in those very universes.

It may seem that way, but if anything the Condesce doing everything she has til now implies very heavily that Lord English IS very interested in the B (Human) universes. It's just that the B universes don't have his calling card/gateway in, which is something that must have "always" been there. The Troll's universe did. That means that while the A (Troll) universes were "slated" for consumption by LE as Doc Scratch stated, the B were not, yet he's going after them anyway.


>He's more deadly.
>But the danger he poses is sanctioned by paradox space.
>It is a known quantity.
>But there are rules to his entry, and his grim procession through paradox space is rather orderly.
>The present equilibrium has accounted for him, and will continue to.

So, if the B universes were destined to be eaten by LE as Paradox Space sanctions, the Kids' session would have had the ectobiology in the Post-Scratch session which would then duplicated the kids to both the Pre- and Post-Scratch sessions as they went through their portals, just like what happened to the Trolls.

Lord English's actions in the B2 (Teens') universe are clearly outside the bounds of what is "sanctioned" by Paradox Space. Just like Jack Noir, he is looking for a way out of where he is stuck. He's going after universes which he shouldn't be allowed to eat, and he's breaking the rules to do it.

THIS is why Lord English is going to be a Big Problem. If he only ever ate the A universes things would be cool. Sucks for the Trolls, but that's life. Now, however, there's something big they have to deal with. I'll bet the Green Sun is something LE was only able to acquire by going after more universes than he's supposed to.

>> No. 63222
>It may seem that way, but if anything the Condesce doing everything she has til now implies very heavily that Lord English IS very interested in the B (Human) universes

That was my point. That the absence of the calling card contradicts everything the Condesce has been doing.

But you might be on to something with the rest, yeah. Interestingly, in the log you linked, Scratch goes out of his way to paint Jack as an irregularity and himself/LE as a natural force, but does NOT mention that he himself had quite some interest in in Jack's creation, not to mention that most if not all crucial steps of that creation can be linked right back to him.
So yeah, definitely seeing the possibility of LE trying to break the rules.
>> No. 63223
Are you sure they were 18...? Obviously they were young but I'd pinned them both at about 21, give or take a year. College age.

>> No. 63224
>way to way to
>> No. 63225
Hussie mentioned that Bro was the same age as him and he's 31 or 32. So yeah the would have made Bro around 18 when he found Dave.

And we don't exactly know how old Dad was. What we know now because of this info dump is there's a possibility that he was adopted so he could've been somewhere between his 20's to 30's when he found John. Besides Mom was already of the age of consent when they first met so it wouldn't be that big of a deal if he was in his 30's back then.

>> No. 63235
you are most likely thinking of it like it sent them to 2 separate timelines at once

when really it sent them to one then the scratch then another.

the reason why the beta kids weren't effected was because they were outside the universe
>> No. 63236
> How could skaia send the babies to two different times?

See: >>63216

Sending the Beat Mesa to Skaia is a "request" along with the needed energy for Skaia to go back in time to when the baby player meteors were flying through portals and change where each portal went.

Doing so makes the new Universe/Session combo the new "Alpha Timeline", while the old "Beta Timeline" is "doomed".

The Beta Timeline doesn't stop being another spacetime continuity that happened, but a new one is created when Skaia changes the destination of the portals.

The "Beta Timeline" session ends and the "Beta timeline" universe just kinda ends/peters out/is no longer relevant (in our case it was blown up by Jack).

Basically changing what time period the babies are sent to is like when Dave came back in time and saved John from dying and became Davesprite.

The universe/timeline where the Kids were the players "never happened" from the viewpoint of the new Alpha session where the Teens are the players, just as from the perspective of the Kids' timeline, John "never" died due to following Terezi's advice because Dave(sprite) came back and created a new chain of events, and thus a new timeline, by changing something to keep a causal paradox (e.g. John not having conversations whit Trolls he "already" had) from happening.

Ok, maybe it's not so short as a TL;DR should be, but whatever.
>> No. 63237

Since the Scratch was so interwound in their session, anything else would have created a doomed timeline. John had to send off the "request" and temporal energy to Skaia so that it would change the destinations. This created an offshoot reality/universe, which probably doomed their reality the moment the 8 meteors hit the portals (probably at the same time). That's why they had to escape before that moment. Skaia then sends like half of the temporal energy to post-scratch Skaia which reciprocates this with 8 meteors of their own to create a loop. Our pre-scratch heroes were created in the post-scratch universe. This explains why Jane has an oily hat that belonged to John's dad.

you realise the whole concept of mspa is improv right?

that he only had four characters, the mechanics of sburb and the intention for it to become very complex with a massive scope when he started?

and that he has never denied any of this whatsoever--more like he admitted it, over and over and over again, that he had no overarching plan aside from "i want this to be a creation myth because doing that in problem sleuth was fun for me" and that he does litter the story with innocuous things and pulls some of them back up if he finds a relevant place for them. those objects, like lil cal for example, were not initially planted with the intention that they would play a major role in the story in a way he had thought out before he put it in. even people like the guardians, who used to be props but are now full-fledged viewpoint characters. he said like a month ago that when he first introduced them he would have never thought he'd ever give them dialogue, nevermind a whole dedicated arc.

it's literally his mission statement. whether this method is actually a good thing or not is debatable, but either way, you are woefully misinformed. if he called you, personally, a whiner, that's probably because you really do sound like a whiner who is feeding off what other people are saying about homestuck but does not actually get what they are talking about. nor have you made any attempt to understand what the author says about his own work.

Did we honestly expect boring ordinary human romance novels to hold the interest of Rose's vast intellect? It's like the moment when one of the current Homestuck Scholars first discovered MSPA after a lifetime of ordinary web comics. *yoink* Later suckers!

Also, I think Dave is spot on, this seems like a messed up proposition even by Troll standards. The point of the romance novel was that it was a messed up situation, not something to strive for. Trolls frown strongly on infidelity, don't they? What ever happened to TROLL SERENDIPITY?

Yeah, Karkat is an ass too, but Dave is worse.

Fat chance. He needs to kill those universes to remake them, just to kill them again.

Indeed, not a big surprise to be honest.
>> No. 63348
i wouldn't really say that dave is being an asshole here, or at least he wasn't until karkat pissed him off. he tried to just leave like 20 times and karkat wouldn't let him.

if that had happened to me i would have made karkat draw penises all over the page too.
>> No. 63352
Drawing penieses all over someone elses book is a sin for which there is no absolution!
If Dave were to be struck down at this moment he would not be ressurected.
>> No. 63357
Dave is hardly being an asshole, he's just giving Karkat his just deserts.
The guy was basically suggesting they double team Terezi, and wouldn't shut the fuck up about something that was obviously making Dave uncomfortable.
So Dave made him draw penises and WRASSLED him.
The interaction between the two is gold anyway, and I wouldn't mind if the next goddamn month is intermission time.

Hmm...Spit-roast or Sandwich?
>> No. 63362
yo karkat was trying to draw a shipping chart on that book first

and you say penises are a sin?
>> No. 63363

Honestly, I find Karkat is the one acting insufferable, not Dave. He wanted to make a schedule dividing up Terezi's time... without consulting her. He wants to date Terezi and the first thing he does is not go to Terezi and tell her how he feels, but instead goes to Dave to try and hatch a plan where they could "share" Terezi. Karkat comes off as someone who doesn't even treat Terezi as a person, more like some prize to be won at this point. He's acting like the type of guy I absolutely hate, and I kinda want Dave to punch some sense into him. I'm glad Dave basically told him how goddamn messed up his plan was, drew penises all over his chart, and then suplexed him.

I knew reading Homestuck would sooner or later lead into finding the greatest written dialog line in existence.
>> No. 63365

Yeah, I don't really see why people say Dave is being a dick here. Not only is Karkat's plan is completely disrespectful toward Terezi, it's also a betrayal of what he supposedly believes about romance!

Remember Troll Serendipity? That never stopped being a thing. It never stopped being a thing that underpins their cultural understanding of romance, so no way in hell is it not a major part of their romantic movies. Karkat is suggesting they intentionally create a situation that seems to be present in trollmantic media as the conflict to be OVERCOME, not a GOAL. In the discussion of troll romance, PREVENTING this was even called out as a major part of WHY trolls need auspicites and moirails!
>> No. 63366
for real, karkat's acting like a piece of shit here

i was happy dave seemed to agree that divvying up terezi's romantic time without even talking to her is fucked up
>> No. 63367
Do we even know how Terezi feels about Karkat now.
>> No. 63371

I feel like even Karkat knows it's fucked up, and this is more born out of desperation on his part. The reason he's talking to Dave first instead of Terezi is that he knows full well that she'd just be like "...WH4T." at him.

Whoa what an abrupt transition. Come on, the meteor junk was starting to be interesting.
>> No. 63381
That was a pretty weird place for us to jump to John and Jade. I suspect we'll see the meteor again before this intermission is over. Or maybe Jade and/or John will fall asleep and be in the dream bubble the meteor passes through.

Oh no... I lost all the good feeling that I got from the previous pages. I really hope we'll get back to the meteor soon..

I'd love to play, if not an MMO, then a Ghostbuster strategy/business sim game.

Your player character is a guy who's going to run a new Ghostbuster branch in a different area (pretty sure this has been used as a basis in rpg-rulesets with the Ghostbusters brand becoming a national franchise) and you can't really do it all on your own, so you have to hire a staff, people to fill out your buster team, secretery or two to man the phones, maybe a lawyer incase you run into trouble with your un/intentional collateral damage...and so on. (Characters in general could have certain skills like SCIENCE! that can help you modify/create new equipment, Mechanic to repair and modify your vehichles in-house, Medic to help patch up the bruises you might get from a stroppy poltergiest, etc)
So you've got your base setup, your team outfitted, your transport ready, the ghostcatching cases you go on would be where the tactical gameplay comes in. Though maybe if you didn't want to play through every standard job you could set a team leader and have them resolve it and depending on thier leadership, the team's skill/equipment and the difficulty of the infestation, they would have a varied degree of success or failure.
I don't know if there would be any kind of 'storyline' or winning goal to shoot for (Make a certain amount of money and fame?) or if it would just be an on-going sandbox.

I just realized Luigi's Mansion is the best Ghostbusters game so far. Maybe Roxy can hook John up.

Oh man is that the general thread maxxed? Too bad it didn't happen a little earlier, we could have had Jade's MMO character as an OP pic

They spent 4 months playing that game. I imagined that both Dave and Rose learned shit about each other and the game itself.

I always wondered why Hussie didn't expand on that. More ommitted bullshit
>> No. 63431
for what it's worth I think we'll be getting a LOT of future dave's issues out in the open in this and subsequent intermissions. seems like with just three "main characters" on the capital ship, and with two of them having such severe unresolved issues, it'd be the logical place for the action (such as it is) to go.

>> No. 63441

Dude, no, that is WAY too plausible. This is just the right amount of BS and intentional parody that it might end up being a real thing.

I will be so pissed/dying laughing if that's what happens at the end.

OK! So what are the "Streams" and who's going to cross them? Will it beat just the Batter Witch or will it get Lord English too?
And don't say the Red/Blue Universes, that's already happened, and made Lord English a Thing instead of beating him.
