Homestuck is a very popular webcomic written in MSPaintAdventures (a webpage created by the same author for his own comics). In each page we can find GIFs, Flash animations or maybe playable scenes.
Fans participated in different parts of this webcomic giving names to the characters, composing songs or making some designs, for example. Other fans do fanarts, Cosplays or voices in videos for these characters.
WeI’ll only talk about the characters and the troll culture. Some examples: People don’t know very much about him. He lives in his study, in Boston. He wrote a lot of different stories and little comics; the most famous are “Problem Sleuth” and “Homestuck”. He appears in the webcomic in different occasions, painting himself in grey or killing his characters. Normal page: http://mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=005572

Playable page: http://mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=002010 Plot This story starts with John’s birthday, on April 13th. He and his friends Rose, Dave and Jade start to play a new reality-altering game for the computer called Sburb, and it starts with an apocalypse. They will meet a lot of creatures, visit many planets and, maybe, fight for the peace. Ancestors Each troll has an "Ancestor". They were very important in the past. Troll culture A project from my English 3rd term. Their culture changed after one of the Ancestors, Meenah, founded the game. They live in Alternia, and each troll (like the kids after entering in the game) has his/her own planet. The blood is their caste system; the lowest is the Burgundy, and the highest, the Fuchsia. They have a very weird bisexual reproduction. Two adult trolls must give genetic material to an Imperial Drone. It’s like a genetic material collector; They pick up it in buckets and then they give it to the Mother Grub, who creates thousand of eggs. Because of this, buckets are like a sexual thing for the trolls. These eggs hatch into grubs and, after their pupation, if they survive to the different dangerous trials, they are chosen by a Lusus (the equivalent to a custodian). Reproduction and famillies Matesprit. Known as love in the human romance.
Moiraillgence. It doesn’t involve reproduction; Moirails are like Best friends in the human language.
Kissmesitude. This is like a hate-love relationship.
Auspiticism. This type of Romance appears when one troll enters in an actual Kissmesitude relationship between two trolls. The third must improve the relationship.
Nepeta usually ships her friends in the wall of her room, called Shipping wall. In addition, for the trolls “friend” and “enemy” are the same word. Romances These are a bit difficult to understand to people. *Red romances (positive romances):
*Black Romances (negative romances): Other things Instead of “years”, Trolls have “Solar Sweeps”. They are equivalent to 26 Earth months more or less, so the main characters have 6 Solar Sweeps (13 Earth years), and some of us have 6,92 Solar Sweeps (15 years). In addition, their “Wriggling day” is equivalent to our birthday, and the “12th Perigree’s” Eve is the same as the Earth Christmas. Alternian calendar "Typing quirk" Each troll has an own type of strange writing. Our main characters writes like this: Conclusion In this project I learned some new English words and I discovered some things about the characters that I have never seen before, and the same with some pictures and scenes.
I’m not happy at all with the project because I want to explain a lot of points about the story...But possibly, some of them are a bit difficult to understand to my classmates. Even if this subject was boring for them, I enjoyed this project because Homestuck changed a bit of my life, and I want to talk about this comic to all people. One of the facts of my actual Homestuck addiction is because it’s a funny comic, if you start it you can't stop! And here is it; Homestuck in my life. The End?
