The meteor is passing through the bubble containing the moon. So is Roxy's dream self. Meaning it all gets kind of mixed up.

The whole point of the place is that it's total chaos in terms of spatial and temporal layout. If you're just walking around, it's entirely possible you could walk right into your own back, and then when you turn around to punch your past self for cramping your style, you instead find yourself punching Hitler.

The dreambubbles grant a little bit of stability to this madness but people can still pop in and out of them from any other time or place in the entire void.

Anyway, I'm still a little confused on what happened with the lotus. Can anyone enlighten me?
>> No. 67023
Okay so now all four Nobles are together and each has only one life. Jake is his real self and everyone else are there dream selves. This means that all four of them are together on Earth before the red miles show up, as that happens hundreds of years in the future from their present point on the timeline. Also, Dirk left Squarewave and Sawtooth in place of his and Roxy's normal timeline real selves. The robots are going to coordinate with the Nobles to get all the necessary SBURB entry work done in both timelines.

Dirk set the time to an appropriate time and flew the hoverboard into it. The meteor reached a defense portal by unknown means, crashed on B2 Earth far in the past and constructed the Frog Temple. Shortly after Jake got knocked out, the lotus opened and released them. Dirk grabbed the bucket he had transportalized next to Jake and woke him up with it.

The strange thing about this is that Jake got Liv Tyler's weapons out of it earlier, so they had to enter the lotus before Dirk did. Possibilities include the kids being already here, Dave or Gamzee using time travel to deposit them before they arrive, or someone somehow figuring out how to change the lotus from first-in-first-out to first-in-last-out.
>> No. 67026
Dirk jumped into it because he needed to wake Jake up.

I'm a bit confused about Jane, though. Is she going to start bleeding soon and then revive? After all, Dirk was being revived just a few seconds ago right in front of her, so he couldn't have revived her earlier than that.
>> No. 67027
This is so convoluted it's awesome.
>> No. 67028
We saw him revive her. Her realself died on Derse, and he kissed it with his dreamself just after having it woken up by Jake kissing his realself's head. Her dreamself was still tuckered out on Prospit after having survived the Slick's assassination attempt, woke up when Dirk kissed her dead realself, wandered into a transportalizer to the Frog Temple and got picked up by Dirk there.
>> No. 67030
But she couldn't have revived already when she wandered onto that transportalizer, since Dirk snatched her on his way to Jake, who was knocked out at the moment and has not revived Dirk yet.
>> No. 67031
Dirk rode a rocketboard through 2 different universes and across 200 years so that he could make out with every one of his dead friends and bring them back to life, all while freestyle rapping, and following established methods for all of these things. It didn't even feel like an asspull.
>> No. 67032
The incipisphere and the universe are temporally independent. That mechanism has been used to create stable time loops a couple times already, and it's exactly what's happening here. Jake woke up Dirk so he could wake up Jake so he could wake up Dirk.

Just watch Unite again. At the beginning, you'll see Dirk's dreamself waking up. That's because Jake kissed his head. You'll then see Dirk's dreamself kiss Jane's realself, reviving her. Then Jane and Dirk both take different routes to the Frog Temple in 2011, where Dirk snatches her and flies her to Jake, in order to wake him up and watch him make out with his head, which is the event that woke Dirk's dreamself up in the Incipisphere.
>> No. 67035
Ah, I believe I found where I made a mistake - I assumed Jake kissing Dirk happened in parallel. Dirk must've sent his head back whatever the time difference between him and Jake, when he really must've sent it a few minutes later than that to give himself time to wake Jake up.

Come to think of it, would Dirk kissing himself work?
>> No. 67036
>would Dirk kissing himself work?

I don't think we have any information on this. It's a pretty specific scenario, isn't it? Maybe there's a restriction in place to stop a time player from reviving themselves. Maybe not. Who the hell knows.

Nobody ever said that. Dirk was clearly superior from the start. The guy synchros two separate bodies like it's no big fucking deal for most of his life for gods sake. With that extra head space freed up, this was probably child's play for him.
>> No. 67068
Hussie is seriously teasing us with the absurdly timed time loops now. The bucket timing makes it seem even more like AR's doing, because there's no way even Dirk could pull that off without him. Innuendo!
>> No. 67070
So this probably isn't the thread for this, but anybody else get the feeling Dirk isn't as serious about the whole Jake thing as Lil Hal is? Like, I think Lil Hal is the one that wants Jake more, not Dirk. Or at least to a lesser degree on his part. Just something I thought of.

Yeah, I concur. Dirk has actually been really cagey about his true feelings.

They might have a disagreement over it, actually.

>> No. 67075
It makes sense, except for one thing. AR repeatedly gave Roxy and Jake himself heads up about Dirk trying something with him in the first place. It's like shades doesn't know what he wants either, or it's more robomanipulation bullshit.

Well we've seen Jane lifey thing reviving herself didn't break it.

And I think it was symbolic of how as of this moment all of Dirk's other bodies (minus lil' hal, who is his own person now) have collapsed into one single Dirk. Also anyone noticing it's using the heart symbol for his loading screens? Not his orange hat? Maybe it means he'll go god tier?

John scratched the game, Jade went god tier and shrunk all the lands + Skaia and crashed a battleship through the fourth wall.
They are currently travelling through Hussie's dimension together with Davesprite, all of the denizens, salamanders, iguanas, turtles, crocodiles and carapaces, on their way to the new session.

Rose set out on her quest to destroy the Green Sun, but was ambushed by DD. Dave showed up to save her. They both found crypt beds (like Aradia's) and went god tier. The twist was that rather than destroying the Green Sun, they ended up creating it. Then they met up with the surviving trolls (Karkat, Kanaya, Terezi and Gamzee) and are currently flying through the Furthest Ring on their way to the new session.

But since several new characters have been introduced, you should just go back and read everything you've missed rather than have us tell you what's going on. It's spoiler-heavy and we wouldn't want to ruin it for you.
>> No. 67095
Oh yeah and the meteor people (Rose Dave and trolls) also brought WV and Serenity with them (Serenity, due to dreambubble shenanigans, is currently with Roxy). Jack is chasing the meteor, but he is in turn chased by PM, who is royally pissed off and has the same powers as him.

Remember, Lil' Hal is Dirk's 13 year old mind.

He didn't. His dreamself had a rocket board, too. You can see it here.

All that stuff probably came with the dream room, like Dave's turntables.
>> No. 67142
> anyone noticing it's using the heart symbol for his loading screens? Not his orange hat? Maybe it means he'll go god tier?

Actually, from what we've seen a last-life dream self dying on a moon-bed is still a way to go God Tier, so Dirk, Roxy, and Jane still have a chance as far as we know.

What we don't know is the specifics of how Quest Beds work. Everyone we've seen ascend so far has ultimately ended up in their dreamself's body, though that could be coincidence. We don't know if a dreamself dying on a planet's quest bed would work, if a realself who still has a dreamself dying on a moon-bed would work, or most importantly, if it's possible to ascend without a live dreamself on either Quest Bed.

Through story hax we still know that if Jake post-entry prototypes his dead dreamself, he can ascend/merge with it via his planet's Quest Bed. Think it will happen?
>> No. 67145
I have my doubts, what with Gamzee roaming free in their session.

it'd be a nice paralell to Jade doing it. prehaps he'll get a second prototyping addition too?

I'm not saying the pale theory is impossible.

But if it is true, wouldn't it be mad weird that Roxy, who grew up with Alternian concepts of romance, construed Dirk's palecrush as something that would get in the way of Jane winning Jake's hand?

(This is putting aside the whole issue with making a male human character, revealing him to have a romantic attraction to another guy, and then going "lol nope he's not really gay", which would be an okay twist in a white room but with the world as it is would be kind of a shitty move.)
>> No. 67189
well it IS the homestuck fandom
>> No. 67193
If things don't work out between Dirk and Jake it would probably be because Dirk felt the need to be cagey and calculating and circuitously manipulate Jake into a romantic entanglement with him instead of just being upfront about his feelings, which is weird and potentially off-putting, especially since it wasn't even really him, it was his severed head. "His feelings were pale all along!" would be stupid. Really stupid.
>> No. 67194
I dunno, two years is a long time. Dirk could have had any number of personal epiphanies that Shades wouldn't have understood. Speaking anecdotally, it's pretty common for gay guys to go through a phase where they think dating their best friend is a way better idea than it actually is. Besides, it seems within Dirk's practical nature to focus on saving the universe.

I'm not familar with the Marvel/DC fandom and I've been lucky enough to avoid most of the Avatar fandom, but I can tell you the Sonic fandom being mostly "no homo" is completely untrue. I would argue that there are as much homo ships in that fandom just as much as het there. At one point Sonic/Shadow was extremely popular years ago when I was still into the franchise.

I remember that. Tavros's part of the genetic code was "t1CK" even though he doesn't use 1's, and Andrew said something like since Aradia uses 0's and Sollux 2's (or used to, in both cases, but whatevs), that means Tavros, who comes between them in zodiac/spectrum order, might be meant to use 1's, but he's too wimpy for the number one.

Yeah, but I find it kinda weird that it's there.
The way cruxite items worked in the B1 session, and what made them different from normal alchemization, was that you'd get them in two "stages". John got a tree from which the apple grew, Rose got a wine rack that the bottle fell out of, Dave got a crow that laid the egg and Jade got another tree that the pinata grew on.
Now Jane also got a tree, but there was no second stage. Jake's tree looks like it got one.

Ok, I was reading this and found someone post about Marvel and DC not having any canon homosexual characters. I laughed outright, the new green lantern is homosexual, it is a new comic series featuring the new green lantern who is a pilot (go fucking figure) or some shit to that effect.

Also, ATLAB and Sonic are CHILDREN'S shows, Homestuck is made by Andrew Hussie and if you read his label clearly it states: "Not intended for children 12 years or younger; choking hazard."

I would also like to state that though I would very much like for Dirk <3 Jake to be real and for true, I believe it is most likely going to end up as <> because that is how Hussie does, and when you become sane enough to calculate what Hussie will do I think you will understand why. To confirm a ship as canon, as was done with the GamTav incident, would be like signing a death certificate for the Huss, he lost fans that day but in return gained pubesant (spelled that wrong but dont give a fuck) fan girls who want nothing more than to squeal with musings of joy to Gog and Jegus over their shipping triumph.

Honestly, I think the characters in question of being shipped or any who are borderline canon, should be killed off. It fucks with fans and makes me smile.

>> No. 67469
Jack and PM, you bastards better not die, that is not the way to go.

I guess uu/Caliborn/Lord English's secret to immortality probably involved going onto... Dave's quest bed? Not sure if it's any quest bed, or Dave's, or one in a dream bubble. He's had some power before, probably involving jujus that has seeded him throughout most of paradox space, that gives him some of the best time majyycks, as well as some Sburb-based ability to enter the furthest ring. He had all those different-colored gates flashing up as he entered.

There's a good chance that's going to happen with... whatever sorcery is happening at the end there. Some infinitely proto-typing kernelsprite. The way the meteor flashed as it was consumed made it seem like he entered... but the black-hole kernelsprite remained. The kernelsprite doesn't seem like that critical of a game element - it just needs to be prototyped in order for Skaia to evolve, and then the underlings and royalty receive the effects of that. Not sure if or how it could be responsible for Lord English's rise to power, but then again, we've never seen a kernelsprite like that before.

Also, that effect for... the furthest ring being destroyed, I guess? Is pretty confusing. Seems like an all-consuming wave and such, but it's a pretty static cracked glass image. Is Lord English actually destroying the furthest ring, and all sessions of Sburb, and all of reality? That's... quite a ticking time bomb for the B2 players then, if that's the case. Hopefully Dave, Rose and co. can escape from it... if there's any way that's even possible to do so. Whatever the case, it probably lies within Calliope, in whatever form she may exist in at that point. I have no idea what the B2 crew can actually do about that, though, and what possible salvation could be found in their session.
>> No. 67470
Theory: Caliborn and Calliope are each others' server players, but since they are in the same place they both used the same . . . kernelsprite-making-machine-thing. I forget what it is called. However, since there are technically two players, two kernalsprites came out of the machine instead of one. That's why the kernelsprite was flashing red and green, one was for Caliborn (red) and the other for Calliope (green). They just happen to be in the exact same place.

The kernelsprites prototyped each other.
>> No. 67472
If uu prefers the black hitcher, why was LE using the white wand?

Sounds cool but kernelsprites are super picky about what they'll accept. Having two players in one body probably just broke the game conditions.

Hey, if uu is Caliborn, why get so nervous about Dirk calling lil Cal by his name? Calliope and Caliborn both start the same way.

So basically the Cherub is the last in a long line of sburb playing races, probably created by a 'successful' human mission. Caliborn found a way to amplify his Cruxtruder so his Kernelsprite could engulf not only him, but the sun that was likely once a Skaia planet riddled with dead players from other sessions, making him into Lord English.

At least that's what I got from it.

I kind of assumed that they are going to pop back due to being dead, and he just destroyed the dreambubble to set back their attempts at collaborating.

I know some people didn't like the idea but I love that Caliborn is Lord English and I love what a little tool he is. It seems appropriate that in a largely comedic coming-of-age story we get to see the villain as a horrible adolescent, too. Usually if you see the villain as a youngster they're precociously sinister and stuff, but uu's a believable teenage creepo.

god, when everyone first saw LE they kind of dismissed him as looking kinda ridiculous, but goddamn, this guy doesn't fuck around, does he? In every appearance he's had so far he's shown himself to be powerful, focused and above all not hammy. He doesn't taunt and fires from the hip.

He's like when the Daleks mean business. When they don't fuck around with schemes or ranting and and just advance, exterminate and destroy.

>> No. 67509
Gazing at LE's work at shattering the fabric of reality through the power of time&space. I'm guessing his reactions will be elaborated more on the upcoming intermission.

I'm assuming Dream-Bubbles are supposed to be the final resting place for the dead where you get to interact with your and the memories of others forever. It's sort of like heaven(or hell) depending how you lived.

>Usually if you see the villain as a youngster they're precociously sinister and stuff, but uu's a believable teenage creepo.

Seeing that he wanted to kill his sister(and was successful in a way) makes him more than some "teenage creepo".
>> No. 67510
They only exist for these specific sessions, though. Feferi created them (or more specifically, came up with the idea and asked the horrorterrors to do this favour) for her friends, and it bled into A1 and the human universes because they are intimately connected to one another.

The afterlife doesn't exist for anybody else.
>> No. 67511
How could Feferi have created the bubbles when they already existed (we assume) due to Meenah's actions?
>> No. 67512
They existed for Meenah because Feferi made them exist. The Furthest Ring isn't linear.
>> No. 67514
You're thinking of the timelines wrong. Both the A1 and A2 universe happen at the same time. Feferi and Meenah probably asked the horrorterrors to make the dreambubbles at the same time.
>> No. 67515
Meenah probably didn't even know the horrorterrors existed until she died, since Gl'bgolyb wasn't around in A1.
>> No. 67516
Meenah, unlike Feferi, didn't have a horrorterror as her lusus. Gl'bgolyb wasn't around in A1, remember?
>> No. 67517
ok then, maybe the A1 session was longer than A2, so Feferi died in an earlier point in her timeline and could do the dreambubble thing before Meenah killed all of them in her session? Or it could just be outer ring wierdness that allows green suns to be created after they've already existed to give power to first guardians.
>> No. 67518
That might have little to do with it. We still don't know the conditions between the Horrorterrors and Scratch using one of them as a plant for Feferi. As a Derse dreamer and maybe as a royalblood, Meenah may have some clout in the bubbles too.
>> No. 67519
The outer ring doesn't even begin to give a fuck about time or space, dude.
That's why, even with two gods of time and a goddess of space on their team, the kids still needed to get the Horrorterrors to help them navigate.
"Timelines" are utterly irrelevant. Feferi asked the Horrorterrors to blow dreambubbles, they did, and that was the start of them, even though they probably existed long before she ever did.

So to defeat Lord English, you just have to say Calliope?
>> No. 67538

Possibly, but I doubt it will be as simple as that. Calliope's existence is a pretty big weakness for Caliborn, which is why he wants to kill her. By the time he's Lord English, he's probably done something to suppress her. It's pretty tough, though, to kill something that lives in the same body as you. Getting Calliope back in control of their body might be what the alpha kids need to shoot for.
>> No. 67541
Or green pounds

Or some other unit of measurement that hasn't been used yet
>> No. 67542
I imagine it'll probably one of those jump through all the hoops sort of thing.

Like they'll have to get rid of the summoning server and the kernalsprite, and then get Calliope in control, and then probably MORE stuff
>> No. 67543
He can only be defeated by exploiting time/space glitches.
Doesn't rule out stuff like calling Calliope's name, destroying his summoning server, entering/ending his session, cracking his head with the Vrillyhoo or whatever else you can think of.

Before this flash came around, I was half expecting the fight against LE to be akin to Demonhead Mobster Kingpin, except less silly and not anywhere as long. Obviously that won't happen now that we know he can break reality itself just by attacking.

>> No. 67560
For now I guess it's just another connection to draw between Dave and LE. There have been a few already. Both associated with bright red, both Time players, uu's special interest in Dirk might be relevant somehow? The big one though is Lord English's characterization as a "ruthless pimp" or however Andrew described it and Dave's destiny as he who would drop it like it's hot whilst the pimp's in the crib (which was made a little more explicit with his Pimpslayer level).
>> No. 67563

File 134379799569.gif - (335.97KB , 255x184 , nod.gif )
I wasn't sure if I should mention that scene, because with the other associations between him and Caliborn it seems significant, but I kept thinking what if it was just a callback to Dave first looking up into the sky and seeing the dream bubbles? It's reassuring that you brought it up though.
>> No. 67570
The pimp verse also paints Dave as the guy to stop LE, even though Aranea says Jake is destined to do it. This could be a subtle callback to that time when both Dave and John were supposed to be the two most likely to pull off the Scratch (aka. big damn hero moment), except Dave admitted he didn't feel like he was supposed to be the hero.

The latter also reminds me of Rose saying the same thing about herself in relation to Mom/Roxy.
>> No. 67572
Actually, it was said that Jake could (but not that he would) be the first to battle and defeat one of LE's countless incarnations, which would create Hope that he some day could be completely destroyed.

I'm pretty sure they will all turn out to be incredibly vital one way or the other, especially the more supportive classes (Rose directing Dave and possibly the whole battle, Jane's healing abilities, whatever Roxy does, the above for Jake). But if anyone has got decent odds for delivering the final strike, it'd be John. He's the main character, the hero and has the strongest weapon evur. It's just too much of an established idea and trope for Hussie not to play with.
>> No. 67573
But John is only protagonist in that he's the guy everything is explained to. Other than that he doesn't seem to do anything special.
>> No. 67574
He was the first to be introduced, the one who served as our not-quite-narrator for most of the first few acts, was the one being pestered by the trolls the most, the first to get the tiger, is considered to be the unofficial leader of their session by the others and wields and incredibly broken hammer made of two Infinity+1 Weapons.

He's not the most important or special character, that's true. But like I said, it (the hero being the one to slay the final boss) is just too big a cliché for Hussie not to use it, somehow.
>> No. 67575
I think what it means with jake is, he's going to kill calliborn. This will unhook LE from whatever stable time loop he's in that prevents his death, and will allow others a chance to actually kill him.

Dirk, as his dreamself, with Roxy and Jane, woke Jake up so they could all enter the Medium together. if he didn't wake Jake up and/or Jake didn't kiss the head, the three of them couldn't have been there.

It's a really simple, small loop.

So this YouTube channel is a bunch of animated videos explaining the backstory behind different video games in under a minute. I've been trying to come up with an accurate script for a Homestuck episode.

"Long ago in another universe there existed a peaceful alien race called the trolls. One day, twelve troll children start playing a computer game that transports them to another reality. This game, as it turns out, is the means by which all universes die and new universes are created. Oh, and universes are frogs. Unfortunately, the trolls fail to win the game and opt to perform the Scratch, which will reset and change their universe into one more likely to succeed. In this universe, trolls are an angry violent race and the original twelve exist as the ancestors of a new set of twelve trolls who play the same game. These trolls actually succeed! But right after they do, an omnipotent monster shows up and deprives them of their reward. They trace the origins of the monster to a game session from the new universe they helped to create, which just so happens to be the universe of the humans where a boy named John and his three friends Rose, Dave, and Jade are getting ready to play a computer game that... well, you get the picture.

I mean, to be fair, it's true that it doesn't really fit. Especially compared to the shots of English a few seconds earlier, where his shoulders are at least five heads wide. But that's even smoother than that really amazing bit in Cascade where the Tumor split. I would think he'd nip that sort of effort-heavy work in the bud if it wasn't going to get used.

this is hearsay so take it with a grain of salt
but I'm pretty sure he didn't have a chance to nip it in the bud
from what I've heard it went like, he asked slunk for a rough and slunk just went ahead and did the whole thing
so by the time he had a chance to decide whether it fit his mental image it was already done

Dammit. I would've loved to see something this fluid end up in Homestuck with all its static images. The fact that it "doesn't fit" works in its favor; it makes English seem even more malign and "wrong" in the context of the multiverse.

Plus, the bit where he licks his mandible is just golden. Wasn't he supposed to eat universes at his inception? Oh right, Hussie conveniently forgot about that. . .
>> No. 67663
The relevant passage reads like so:
>He has the entire cadaver of the expired universe to pick apart at his whim. From its birth through its swelling maturity and tapering decay. In a reality he is known to have marked for predation, he will go about assembling followers through various epochs, even going as far as personally establishing the parameters for his future summoning.

It's easy to read "predation" here literally, as though Lord English was some sort of cosmic hedgehog feasting on Genesis Frogs, but I prefer to read it more metaphorically: particularly, as an indication that by arranging for his own instantiation via the death of a universe, he generally brings about that end much earlier than it might otherwise have occurred. B2, for instance, was many billions of years away from heat death when Slick shot it through the heart.

Slunk's animation is nice and fluid, sure, but it's a nice and fluid animation of an old man sneezing a pitiful rainbow. I'm glad Hussie didn't use it.

Slunk's piece of animation is nice and fluid, sure, but it's a nice and fluid animation of an old man sneezing out a pitiful rainbow. I'm glad Hussie didn't use it.

I generally prefer the looks of flashes where second-party art is used sparingly. I mean, there are part where it works great, like the Tumor one someone mentioned, or that one animation of Terezi walking in Make Her Pay, but I think there are also several cases where the mixing of styles just looks awkward.

Case in point: Jade's ascensiion in Cascade.

Which is odd, since it seemed like she had a Hussie-ish style down perfect in [S] JOHN. RISE UP.
>> No. 67672
Not odd at all. I recall Hussie saying he asked the contributing artists to do their own thing instead of trying to follow the style.
>> No. 67673
Davesprite and Jadesprite looked really out of place in Cascade too. The weird thing about that though is that Laz's drawings in the Gamzee vs. Vriska vs. Eridan flash worked, and the style there was a lot closer to her normal style than what she did in Cascade. Trying to bring her art closer to baseline MSPA actually made it stick out more.

Updating from here: >>67640

"Long ago in another universe there existed a peaceful alien race called the trolls. One day, twelve troll children start playing a computer game that transports them to another reality. This game, as it turns out, is the means by which all universes die and new universes are created. Oh, and universes are frogs. Unfortunately, the trolls fail to win the game and opt to perform the Scratch, which will reset and change their universe into one more likely to succeed.

What they didn't expect was that performing the Scratch would allow the entry of Lord English, an immortal, time-traveling, demon, skeleton, mobster, billiards-themed demon who, through the scheming of his omniscient right-hand-man Doc Scratch, caused his own creation after he died at the end of the universe. Scratch influenced the trolls to be an angry and violet race, and the original twelve troll children serve as the ancestors of twelve new troll children who play the same game as their predecessors.

These trolls actually succeed! But right after they do, an omnipotent monster named Jack Noir shows up and deprives them of their reward. They trace Jack's origins to a game session from the new universe they helped to create, which just so happens to be the universe of the humans where a boy named John and his three friends Rose, Dave, and Jade are getting ready to play a brand new computer game that I'm sure will not lead to any death or disaster. Have fun!"

Posted on 20 Aug 2012 by Andrew

Three weeks ago I took a guess at how many weeks it would take to update again, and to quote myself, this is exactly what I guessed: "I'll guess about 3 weeks." It turns out I guessed wrong. I guessed slightly less weeks than the right amount of weeks. I'm now going to guess it will take one more week.

I would like to update right now instead of additional weeks from now, but the only way that could possibly happen is if magic wasn't fake. And I think we all fully understand what the deal is with magic at this point.

Good point and I am sure he will do that for most, but a few demand some development purely for plot reasons, like pre-scratch Sufferer and maybe Summoner. We still need to know what the deal is with Aranea's necklace (brotip: all zodiac water signs are apparently super compatible with each other)

So if you go to the area where you meet the other pre-scratch trolls you can find a chest in its own room that has the bent horse hitcher. Take it all the way back to where Hussie is crying and he will follow you. When you get to the final area there will be a chest containing the Horse calendar that HB is still trapped in. I can't tell if getting Hussie to follow you does anything else though. The code does seem to suggest that there is a Trickster mode.. but ctrl-T doesnt work this time. I wonder if Hussie's character and/or the horse calendar has something to do with it. Once you get the calendar you can't go back to the starting bubble, unfortunately. Talking to Hussie in the chest doesn't seem to change when Hussie is following you (o.O). Also, there is a third Hussie in the starting area in the northeast corner but I can't see any way to get to him as he's almost offscreen.

Sorry guys but Latula is just annoying, apart from those small moments of normality
Let's not even get started on Kankri or I might throw a fit and write lots of creepy obsessive posts about dismembering him

Silliness aside and new characters aside, the best parts of these intermissions is to see the development of the already kids and oldie trolls. Rose and Dave are so... balanced and happy these days. Both of them seem to really be enjoying themselves meeting and talking to and learning about all these people, without having to go about it pretending to be ironical or indifferent.

It took me literally an hour to figure out all that RPG trickery bullshit. That's an hour of my life that I will never get back. Why do I like it like that

Also when Latula talked about "getting rusty" I couldn't help but think about the fact that she might be getting lazy and soft in the afterlife and the chubby chaser in me is really interested in that concept

In other news, I've decided that over 50% of the attraction to Homestuck just consists of the readers projecting their fetishes onto the characters. Pic related.

I honestly think one of Hussie's greatest strengths as a writer is how he just fills in essential character traits and leaves the right amount of ambiguity for the fandom to project onto.

I fear any future updates involving Kankri will takes ages to produce. Not sure if that's hilarious or horrible; probably both.

Honestly, we have a ton of characters who seem to make it their deal to talk so damn much. I remember when Caliborn first showed up and he mentioned he wouldn't say much, but proceeded to word bomb Dirk. I kinda of want to see a character who just uses to absolute minimal amount in talking. In fact, I kind of want it to be GHB. Just have him be this infuriating one word answer kind of guy, like when you give a big long message, and get some garbled response in the shortest way possible.

Judging by the sprite, he seems to have a skeleton thing going... but since it's unlikely that he'll just be a palette swap of Gamzee, I'd say the chances are quite good that he'll have a mime thing going.

Not that that means he'll be quiet, ever. When a large amount of your characterization is conveyed through text (especially in a walkaround flash where there's very limited interaction), you're bound to come off as pretty dull if you're not interested in talking. Unless Hussie is somehow able to work avoid that through sprites, silences and superb and very concise writing.
