my sister is big into it. i was up to date in summer of 2013 but i got out, and thanks to the toxic fandom o have no immediate plans to jump back in.

there is a thread but i believe its deeply buried (over three years whoo). anyhow, hard to believe its ending. i was hyped for the game for like two minutes until i found out it was a point and click.

i dropped out from that game completely when the odd gentlemen fucked them over and the game was "scratched" (ba dum ts) as a 2D game.

Wow, it's actually ending. Sadly I dropped out after the Scratch and Act 6 and stuff, but it's always a joy seeing Homestuck fans, art, cosplays and stuff. I'm really glad Toby Fox took his time and talent from Homestuck's music to make Undertale, too.

Now's the time to catch up, dude!! I think HS is a lot easier to read archivally than update-by-update, because you don't have to wait and don't have to deal with all the fandom drama. This ending is shaping up to be really exciting!

Toby Fox is still working on Homestuck, too!! He helped out with the giant update in the link I posted above. I hope all the team go on to have success like he did :D

Yeah, HS fandom can be pretty bad, but then again, if it was too much for you I have no idea how you manage to survive the KH fandom...

I actually think the game is going to be even better like this! It seems as though the people Andrew Hussie recruited are all super passionate about the series and the project, and so it's being made with a tonne of love. Besides... YOU PLAY KHX DUDE

Homestuck is one of my favourite things ever. But as much as I like it, I really hate the direction it's gone. >__<

There's no way the entire HS team won't go on to greater things. I just watched Collide and although I don't know the context, the animation and art direction is still spot on, even though it looks less MS Paint-y. And I know Toby didn't leave HS, but all of those hiatus and intermissions probably helped him move Undertale along lmao.

I still don't quite know if I will go back and start Homestuck again. Maaaaybe. It's still really long and time consuming, not to mention that my internet here is really slow. I remember using up all my data years ago just trying to read through Homestuck.

Right!! I'm looking forward to seeing who else from the team pops up where :3 I think at least one person works on Steven Universe now...

Also, I actually think Hussie really is better as a creative director than a lone artist himself.

You shooooould!! It is long, but it's the kind of series imo that only gets better with rereads cause of all the foreshowing you'll get each time. Well, slow internet does suck though :(

Decided to bump this thread because the comic has ended (although there might be an epilogue) and I thought it would be better to do this than create a new one. I hope this is okay.

Nooooo!! Why??
I'm just one of those people who hate the idea of the retcon, and I thought everything post-retcon was very poorly handled. I just feel that the retcon threw away character arcs and fixed all their problems. And post-retcon Vriska should not have existed. :(

WELL i do see your side, but i def don't feel the same way! i think that the retcon didn't throw away 'arcs'. first off, the alpha kids had the exact same experiences, and jade and kanaya barely had arcs pre-retcon, so that threw nothing away imo. as for the other members of the meteor crew, i think it was more like their 'arcs' were at a Game Over point: they were stagnating and miserable, which doesn't equal character development. they pretty much wasted their entire three years not changing at all. karkat still idolised the empress and harboured internalised-bullshit apologia for the Alternian regime, for example. post-retcon, he didn't even know who meenah was, because he had moved past that. the best example is dave: how exactly did dave change pre-retcon? his 'dealing with the meaning of heroism/masculinity' thing went absolutely nowhere and he threw his life away. post-retcon he came to terms with a bunch of stuff and grew as a person. like, what got thrown away?

and then terezi did a whole bunch of cool stuff before she died, tying up the 'im useless and pathetic' crap she'd internalised from her shitty relationship with gamzee, and so her arc pretty much got finished back then. retcon!terezi's problems were not fixed in the slightest--she may not have had a faygo addiction and avoided being abused by gamzee, but she was still miserable, still felt useless, and seemed unhappy right until the end. if anything terezi had LESS fixed problems post-retcon. which is actually why im not so against post-retcon vriska; i thought it was actually really good to show us that all terezi's problems, which started from her grief and guilt over killing vriska, would NOT have been solved if vriska lived--and to be able to compare the vriska who never grew up to the one who did was really interesting.

i think the only one i can kinda agree with on this is rose, whose drinking problem got sidestepped completely.

man!! i wish like, there were more ppl i knew in the hs fandom who treated it the way this place treats kh--i am absolutely sure the answer to what happened to him is in the comic if we piece together the facts enough, but im not cluey enough to do it :(
