Hussie's fanart policy (Which I'm pretty sure is legal fantasy*) just managed to deprive me of $50 worth of commission that isn't even HS-related.

I'm finding it pretty hard to dispute that, though my vote for Favorite Flash usually depends on what flash I've last seen. Do you prefer this most recent one over [S] Cascade, perchance? Only asking because in discussions of Best Flash I usually exclude Cascade because, in my opinion, it's far and away the best one. Regardless of it's inherent quality, however, I think it's hard to argue that it's pretty incomparable in relation to the other flashes.

In other news, I used to really not get jokes about people obsessively following package tracking online. But now I know that my Hero of Life zipper hoodie just made it to my city less than an hour ago and I'm so excited!I am a bit disappointed about the price tag on the things, though somewhat less than I expected. At $40 it's more expensive than any other piece of clothing I've every purchased for myself, but then clothing has never been something I've splurged on.

He definitely did this flash in the 5 days of downtime. Which was time he was supposed to be taking of from HS per his Tumblr but I guess not. He said he didn't even plan the Roxy flash, it just happened and he therefore must have made it in two days. The only conclusion is that he got really fast at making flashes ever since spending all that time on Cascade.

The chatlogs are necessary for characterisation so we care about them when the action happens, but I think he should have broken it up a lot more with some plot advancement before now because all at once they are boring, yes.

Not sure exactly how I feel about the recent pages, but Jane's faces are definitely awesome.

Also: random fan theory about Jane.
Spoiler:
i dunno guys, something ain’t right with janey here! the way she’s talking is pretty suspicious.

she’s using eights, for starters:

GG: Ahahahah!
GG: Yeaaaaaaaah
Image

and the way she’s talking in general just seems pretty dang familiar??

GG: Screw it!
GG: Ask him out.
GG: Just kill the suspense already.
GG: Become boyfriends and such.
GG: Have some babies!!!

i mean it just reminds me of a certain troll, with an ability for really excellent mind control. but it’s not like she’s appeared in the comic lately or anything, right.
Maybe alpha-Mindfang has some reason to keep Jane/Jake apart?

I've always liked the chatlogs more, but... okay, first off, I'm biased because I haaaaaate misunderstanding-based plots in a very visceral way, even when they're well-done and realistic. That means this current Jane/Jake stuff? Do not want.

The thing is... this seems backward, to me. We're jumping into all the relationship drama, as if we have a damn clue who these characters are yet. It seems like telling-not-showing to me, and the predictable ship-teasing isn't even frustrating anymore, just... more omg-shippers-troll-lol-lol on the troll pile. Of course, that might be because I don't really care a lot about these characters yet. They still seem awfully... contrived. Of course, technically every character in Homestuck was literally contrived, with the possible exception of Dad; but given how glib as fuck Homestuck is about its own backstory I find it hard to believe it's an artistic statement.

...I think that's the main thing that's getting to me, actually. Houses are destroyed, planets laid waste, timelines erased, characters murdered, universes annihilated... and it's plot, it's a backstory, it is discussed perhaps twice. It has an impact on the plot; how many times have we seen it have an impact on the characters? And you can say it's offscreen, you can say Dave and Rose totally had breakdowns for about ten minutes there, you can say trolls are aliens and carapaces "aren't ~real~" and everyone was engineered to play this game, you can say "just keep waiting, really it's coming in a few hundred pages!", but... the dissonance is really getting hard to take. :/

...pfft, ninja'd by the tumblr link I was going to share XD I think it's an interesting idea, though I don't know if I buy it, and I'm also not sure if that would be better because at least Jane isn't just randomly being a romcom idiot, or worse because oh god more ship-trolling ffffff.

I'm not into shipping at all, but I think it's just meant to be funny in a short term way. In the same set of pages we got an unexplained bot explosion and another cliffhanger so it's not like the comic is all shipping right now.

I always thought the fact that the kids were too busy being kids to care about the end of the world was part of its charm. Although yes, it's very weird and very hard to believe there wouldn't be more freaking out, it's charming all the same.

How's everyone feeling about Bascostuck? I try and refrain from star-fucking, but it's very interesting to see a public figure (especially one whose biggest work of note is huge with the Homestuck fandom AND one whose character has been referenced in the comic) to stumble into this thing, get mired in it's complexities and come to enjoy it. I hope he keeps live-ish-blogging it.

So, in regards to the [second]most recent update, did Jane actually have a scarf at some point way back in the beginning that disappeared? I cannot recall.

I'd appreciate a little more character development... But yeah, especially in the first few acts Homestuck was all about being incredibly silly and awesome, like Problem Sleuth; the drama/angst is a relatively new addition. If Andrew went back and revised the beginning, I bet there would be a lot more freaking out.

On that note, it was a little odd that they were completely okay with a reality-altering video game. I would've liked Rose to think she was just manipulating a virtual version of John's house, then being surprised when it actually happened... Or on the other hand, maybe this is a world where video games are completely different. Also, it might be interesting to learn more about the other people who played the Sburb Beta. It was implied that a lot of people played it, but we really only saw their GameFAQS pages.

He's minor in the real world, but I thought he was pretty serious business for the generation of geeky young people who spend a lot of the time on the internet and know what "Fandom" or "Shipping" mean.

Or to be clearer, he's Prince Firelord Zuko from Avatar.

Yeah, but... just because no one reacted to their house being teleported to a weird new universe and fighting video game things and maybe meteors striking places (they were really too busy to look into it), doesn't really mean it would be out of character for them to react to the definite annihilation of everyone they ever knew and everyone they didn't. Pretty different things, imo. If you're raising the stakes with the plot, it just feels weird to me if you don't raise the stakes with the characters too.

I'm assuming Hussie started out expecting this to be more like Problem Sleuth, then realized you can't have two-dimensional characters and real plot in the same story.

Speaking of Problem Sleuth...

What does she mean when she talks about the 'colour/imperial unit' theme? I get 'Yellow Yard', but what's the counter-part that has anything to do with the flood?

The site is claiming "blue fathoms" but I'm not seeing any hint or reference in the text so I think he just made it up.

Also this update (A6I2). I don't even. And it was foreshadowed both in the comic and Tumblr but still.

I think "Black Inches" was a thing at some point too. But yeah.

Bluh, I am at the point where I have to trawl tumblr to figure out what is going on and why it matters. I did not ever think I would fall so low.

Honestly, I still don't quite get why the latest update is a thing, which is not making me feel better about my intelligence...
Spoiler:
So he's cosplaying and Spades Slick and the butler are there right? And Ms Paint? Is it "SPADES LIVES" Oh me yarm, or "IS HUSSIE UU" Oh me yarm, or something else I'm missing? I guess it'd make sense if it's a Slick thing, because I just have never been invested in him whatsoever; and I find it hard to believe the Hussie thing isn't more trolling-by-cosplay, though hell, he's gone meta before. ...He's still not UU.

It's the Slick thing, and it's because he followed through with this joke from 3 months ago in a literal and absurd way:

Dear Mister Andrew Hussie Sir, Will we ever see Spades Slick again? Is he okay? I will spend countless nights up, worried about him.

I am nursing him back to health in my house, like a baby bird that fell from its nest too young.

Apart from that I think people just get excited when Andrew-character shows up at all and obsess about any tiny detail of his panels.

For at least 2 of the multiple digit numbers, the order is arbitrary. Ferferi's quirk could be 83 instead of 38 making the result 657, and Terezi's 431 could also be written 134, 143, 413, 314, or 341.

Sollux. He has psychokinesis. Why his ancestor was the Empress's engine-slave. And why he's like half-dead or something now. Was mostly in the flash, but might be explained starting here? I don't really want to reread the whole intermission, I admit XD See here and here for wiki pages, anyway.

What I'm confused about now is, if the "alpha" kids/guardians are the babies from John's ectobiology session, how the hell are the original kids the product of the exact same meteors? There was just a conversation about baby-meteor-Dave killing Maplehoof, and the meteors were diverted to entirely different timeframes; so they went *both* to their "intended"/"original" destinations *and* to the new parallel universe...??

...Pfft. I keep forgetting. When it comes to temporal paradoxes and causality and shit, Homestuck universes and their laws are basically Gamzee. MoThErFuCkIn' MiRaClEs AlL aRoUnD, bRo. ChIlLaX aNd TaStE tHe SoPoR sLiMe.

...Ahem. That's. Actually pretty much exactly how the universe in Homestuck works. If >Gamzee: Fondly regard motherfucking miracles. is ever a thing, you heard it here first.

...Anyway. Also an interesting implication is, how do Dirk and Roxy even know who their 'parents' are? They lived in Jane and Jake's time, apparently, so unless they somehow managed to live 400 years (not out of the question >_>), they can't ever have known them. Did they guess? Were they told? How are they alive, anyway?
