Transcript of Homestuck

Let Me Tell You About Homestuck Homestuck is a web comic created by Andrew Hussie after his popular comic, Problem Sleuth.

The comic mainly revolves around 4 kids who play a game called SBURB. This game comes without instructions or an initial objective, but seems relatively harmless at first. But what the kids don't know will surely hurt them in the end. SBURB is actually the cause of an
apocalypse. The comic is mainly told using singular panels, text(in the form of personal messaging called Pesterlogs) and flash animations.

The entire story is captivating but, also very confusing. Reading the Pesterlogs is the key to understanding almost everything, since this story deals with paradoxes and "time shenanigans". The site, mspaintadventures.com, got it's name from the program that was used to create the first panel of his first comic, Jailbreak. He uses Photoshop to create the panels in Homestuck.

Here are some examples. Though this story starts off simple and easy to understand, the story will then start to split between kid to kid, then to completely different characters called "Trolls" and then another set of kids, so pay attention to each character's likes/dislikes/relationships/other actions.

Now let's introduce everyone. John Egbert Title- Heir of Breath
Pesterchum Handle- ectoBiologist
Strife Specibus(main)- Hammerkind
Fetch Modus- Stack, Queue, Array, Wallet
Land- Land of Wind and Shade John is an incredibly likeable character. He often becomes friends or at least seems tolerable to the trolls, who don't usually befriend the humans. He loves pranks, his friends on Pesterchum, and terrible movies(more specifically Con-Air,where he shows a type of "Man-Crush" on Nic Cage.) He seems to dislike Harlequins, to which his father is obsessed with. He hates baked goods(mainly "Betty Crocker" Products) which his father also makes quite often. Rose Lalonde Title- Seer of Light
Pesterchum Handle- tentacleTherapist
Strife Specibus- Needlekind
Fetch Modus- Tree
Land- Land of Light and Rain Rose, though this does not render her character unlikeable, tends to think too far on certain subjects and problems. She seems to have a strong relationship with certain trolls, though not all of them like her. She seems to deny the fact that she "likes" girly things, and has grown quite fond of knitting ever since John gave her knitting needles for her birthday. She seems to dislike wizards, which her mother collects. Dave Strider Title- Knight of Time
Pesterchum Handle-turntechGodhead
Strife Specibus- Bladekind
Fetch Modus- Hash Map
Land- Land of Heat and Clockwork Dave is pictured as the "cool kid", Only taking off his sunglasses less than a handful of times. For most of the comic, he seems to not believe that the Trolls are an alien race, and are just kids messing with his head. He loves creating music using his turntables, for which he cares for deeply. He seems to have a fear of puppets later on in the comics, possibly caused by his brothers collection. Title- Witch of Space

Many creating fan art(as seen for character profiles and God Tier), theories, ships/couples, cosplay/costumes, videos, voice acting and even there own songs/parodies. The Fans Over time, Homestuck has grown an immense following that is still growing. It is also still updating to this day, has over 5000 pages and even has a video game planned for 2014.

The money to fund this game has been raised through the website "Kickstarter", raising over 2 million dollars in 30 days, placing 8 on the "Top projects by Funds Raised". Depending on the amount of money given, you would receive the game, as well as other prizes(Sticker sets, pins, t-shirts, tote bags, etc...) and for10 thousand dollars, which only 2 people would apply to(both sold out near the end) you would get all previous rewards and have your fan character appear in Homestuck.

Karkat Vantas(Flushed Crush) Meenah Peixes But in the end, I will recommend reading Homestuck to anyone who hasn't yet. It's complex story will keep you thinking and the characters will make you wish that Hussie never killed them. The jokes will keep you laughing and the heart jerking moments will hit hard, showing large signs of it's immersion. At first it will show a plain and bland environment, but later own grows into a mess of colorful scenery and animations that last up to 15 minutes.

So, you should check out Homestuck, just as long as you clear your calender. Eridan is often the punchline to many jokes in the fandom, many commenting on his quandrants. Though Eridan doesn't exactly deserve these jokes, he isn't quite the nicest of the trolls. He has a somewhat massive ego, possibly because of his high spot on the hemospectrum or from his great affection for historical leaders/conquerors/military history. He also shows a love for wizards and magic, though not believing in it, which could be a joke on his slight resemblance to Harry Potter. Feferi has a very bubbly personality. She seems to be nice with everyone, rarely mentioning how high she is on the hemospectrum(and the fact that she will become the empress of Alternia), showing kindness to even the lowest. She is shown to have a friendship with Eridan and Sollux, who seem to perhaps have a rivalry, that might be for her. She keeps many varieties of cuttlefish and aquatic-hoofbeast(horses) in her hive, almost acting as an animal shelter. Cosplay Fan art DISCLAIMER As previously mentioned, Homestuck belongs to Andrew Hussie. But sadly, I am not able to credit every single artist and cosplayer shown here.

If it helps any, I found most of the art on tumblr and zerochan. I also found it by typing the character name and by searching "Homestuck Cosplay" on Google.

I really am terribly sorry that I can't give everyone credit. Meenah is the teams leader, and will do anything to win, even making the other members loathe each other. To save herself and her friends from nonexistence caused by scratching the game, she killed herself and the others. Pre-scratch trolls These trolls will not have a lot of information, due to the fact that they appear later in the comic. There is also only so much info on each character given to us. It is said that Damara used to be a quiet troll, even after she found out her matesprit, Rufioh, was cheating on her. It was only after Meenah started "bullying" Damara with this fact, which caused her to paralyze Rufioh from the neck down and ruin many of her friends efforts to beat the game Rufioh has been said to be the most romantically successful of the 12, only Meenah has never made a move on him. He is apart of a group called "The lost weeaboos", which he joined when he fled into the forest due to his wings, which make him a "mutant".
