I don't really understand the sentiment of feeling completely disappointed by something, yet still wanting to re-read it even though it'll probably take several weeks, if not months worth of time that could be spent doing or experiencing something enjoyable instead.

Like, not saying this to mock anyone, I really don't understand it.

I want to do it because if I do, I might understand the ending better. I legitimately did not understand half of act 6. I legitimately did not understand anything after trickster mode, or anything after the new trolls had been introduced. I also still do not fully understand most things that lead up to Cascade. Most of Homestuck is still shrouded in mystery that I have a difficult time decoding. I was hoping that now knowing that the storyline ends up in a happy place would help me understand the entire journey, which is why I'm going to re-read it yet again in hopes of understanding this behemoth of a incoherent story. I don't even think I want to do this because I enjoyed it, I just want a challenge in 'how many things can you jumble in your head at once before forgetting any of it' or something.

The house is empty. Spring sets its foot on the front lawn of the new month, as if curious to meet its new host, or say, the 547 answers to unresolved plot points. A familiar note is produced. It is the one predictability plays to keep its instrument in tune.
It has been seven years, and your favorite piece of fiction has finally ended, yet something still feels missing. The act previously watched by you is not the final card of the unseen trickster who is taking joy in making you wait, then wait even more. Your patience, while sturdy, is far from limitless. One day, it will descend down in a series of cascades as it collides on its way with your pent-up rage.

“We are doing it, bro. We are making this happen.” – Albert Einstein.

Yes, you are certain Albert Einstein said that. One hundred percent positive.

This sure was a very long read.


EDIT: Since this ending didn't answer most of the questions, and I can't really wait for the epilogue because who knows, maybe it'll be a 10 minutes animation of Jasperose and Davepeta dancing, I have decided to step in and create my own epilogue with ASTONISHING GRAPHICS and GREAT STORYTELLING.

Please enjoy my objectively great conclusion to Homestuck. Part one is here:

PART TWO. IS HERE.

is...homestuck going mainstream

can it be as bad as minecraft when it went mainstream more at 10

to be fair the reactions cause those things happen after i cease to like said things as much so seeing it be a normie thing after a while is kind of. cringy
i doubt homestuck will gain many more fans plus like half the fandom died during the omegapause

That was kind of cute. I'm glad to see more of their lives on Earth instead of just stopping at shit like "hey look jake and dirk are playing football now lol". I'm also happy that this isn't the epilogue, meaning something much more substantial might actually come out of the actual epilogue in 78554 years.

I also have a little theory on how the happy ending we're getting isn't all that happy, and a 100% happy ending kind of was one of my two major complaints about act 7 (the other being 87547 things not explained). If it's this John+the other kids who go fight Caliborn (I'm hoping the reason isn't some dumb thing like "caliborn is mildly annoying all of us on snapechat let's fuck him up), it means:

The 4 beta kids are stuck in the house until released near the black hole, presumably killing them heroically.
The other 4 kids are stuck forever on a dead planet inside a dead session, with no means to go back to Earth C and reign there as The Creators.

well it's nice to get some actual hussie panels rather than other people drawing his panels for him.

and yeah, it was nice and cute, but reddit thinks that John is now sad and lonely and 'this is not a happy ending but a build up to the actual epilogue'

in which case I'm looking forward to more waiting for an update!

Some of you might already know this, but Hiveswap got delayed a few weeks again, for 'testing'.

Status of Hiveswap: the game is just about done. It could still use some more testing to be absolutely certain we are not releasing a buggy piece of shit! To that end it will be worth waiting another several weeks or so. Perhaps more intriguingly I should mention that I've been working with some people on another thing, which will need to be announced when it is ready. I think it would be best to coordinate the announcement of the thing in question with the release of the game. So I'm not sure which will be done first, the thing or the testing, but neither will be unveiled until both are good and ready. Thank you as always for your legendary patience.
heres the trailer btw

So I guess an early May release? Plus, there's also been some more snapchat updates for those who haven't been following it, but it was all just some sitcom-level stuff with no relevancy, but here's a summary;

*jane is kidnapped by a terrorist troll movement and teleported onto the moon
*the carpacians try to recreate the earth moon's crescent shape by shooting a laser at it
*B1 jack noir enters universe C with the felt and lands on the (you guessed it) moon
*roxy and calliope try to rescue jane but it doesn't matter
*jane uses the crockercorp tiara on B1 jack, making him an even more pathetic threat
*all live happily ever after

I just hope something interesting or relevant happens soon; my "legendary patience" is wearing thin.

Oh, and:

never mind, all the snapchat stuff was drawn by one of the hiveswap team members

I'm relatively new to the thing so I still have some hope for it. I guess we'll just see what happens next.

Wow, I was worried that this thing wasn't going to be faithful to the webcomic, but now all that fear has been laid to rest.
 
i decided to go through homestuck again because i first read it when i was like fourteen and didnt get all the jokes and commentary about being a little shit teenager and it's bringing back all of these memories of first joining the forum when all you had awful troll handles aaaaaaaaa
