    Well howdy, Mr. Two Neurons!

    The utmost base premise is "Kids and fun."

    It's so popular because: the author had made an EXTREMELY hilarious and successful series before this one (Problem Sleuth), it's incredibly long, it incorporates flash to make GLORIOUS visual orgasms, and the music is absolutely delicious.

    As for porn, you get whatcha get.

    Robot chick used to be alive. Shit happened yo.

    Unless you're prepared to stick through the whole thing, don't bother. Might want to start Problem Sleuth before you do Homestuck.

    It's called Homestuck because the kids are stuck at home playing this a video game to save the world.

    Webcomic? Faux-text adventure?

    This question will take a lot of words to answer properly.

    Homestuck is about four kids who are friends on the Internet. They play a game together, which draws them into a fantastic alternate universe whose fate is intertwined with that of the "real" world. The story uses as its themes the idea of everyday things having symbolic significance in the bigger picture, "inescapable" destiny and whether it is really inescapable, and the power of friendship and family.

    Medium-wise, it's a webcomic that looks like one of those old parser adventure games. It used to be that readers could suggest actions and they would be implemented in the story; this has stopped happening in most cases as the author wanted to get the plot moving (although community discussion still influences the plot in more subtle ways). This is supplemented by the occasional high-production-values SWF update, with a complete score and animation, usually several minutes long.

    Its a story about 4 kids playing a game. At first you think its shit, but then absolutely everything escalates and becomes infinitely more badass and/or hilarious. Its chock full of weird time travel shit and other nonsense that doesn't make sense the first time you go through it, but makes sense later when you know what was happening from another person perspective. The author got significantly better with making flash animations to the point now where each new one is guaranteed to be outstanding. Plus he updates (usually) daily with like 5 new pages.

    The robot chick is really the soul of a girl who died halway through some more plot shit and got a robot body built for her, so people either draw her as the dead-robot, or the alive version.

    Its called Homestuck cause at first you think the first kid is stuck in his home.

    Its a comic that heavily parodies RPG's and text based adventures.

    TL;DR quit your bitchin and read it. Also you should probably read Problem Slueth first.
    >> The Australian Guy 10/22/10(Fri)03:04 No.20702236
    Homestuck is a webcomic about four kids. They only know eachother across the internet, and each lives in a different timezone of the US, but they're all best friends. One day, on the main character's birthday, the four start to play a game called Sburb. This game, in an incredibly circuitous, time-bending manner which defies all laws of causality, brings about the end of the world through a cataclysmic series of meteor impacts. However, before the kids are taken out by this, they, their homes and their guardians and parents are sucked into the Sburban game world, "The Medium".

    Throughout their time playing this game and helping each-other, they are helped from behind the scenes by their guardians, who one-by-one reveal themselves to be capable of superhuman feats.

    People who play Sburb have what are called "Dreamselves", entities which wake up in distant reaches of the Medium when the players sleep. One of the characters, Jade Harley, has what is known as a Dreambot, which allows her to interact with the real world at the same time she's in the dream world.

    Throughout their adventures, the characters are helped and hindered by a group of 12 "Trolls", troll-like aliens from another time and place who played and beat the game before the main characters. One of the trolls, Aradia Megido, is actually deceased due to events explained in Act 5 of the comic. Her essence currently inhabits a "Soulbot" so that she may interact properly with her surroundings.

    As for genre? The creator says it's the webcomic equivalent of a crossover between Earthbound, Spore, and The Sims. You could also say it's action-adventure-romantic-comedy.

    Homestuck DOES have a deeper narrative to it and much more developed characters, but I love Problem Sleuth because of its inane yet witty humor.

    Sure, Hussie brings some of it over into Homestuck but it's really only evident during the Act I or so. I'd say humor begins to take a backseat around Act III and everything starts to get convoluted.

    In any case, Problem Sleuth is a lot less overwhelming than Homestuck, and I found that going through PS got me used to HS' style.

    Kids and fun. Because it is entertaining to a large audience. Because the characters are all thirteen years old. Because she was not always a robot, she is actually a ghost inside of a robot. That really depends on how willing you are to try. Because they are stuck in their homes in a sense, also a play on earthbound. It is kinda a genre all its own, but faux-interactive graphical text adventure? Here is the page meant for new readers

    it's amazing how completely hussie seems to have abandoned everything that made homestuck interesting in favor or troll relationship drama. hivebent was cool as a glimpse into an alternate game session, but hussie seems to have taken a liking to the style of just alluding to crazy complexity rather than actually showing it. i really hope i'm wrong, but i also was really expecting things to change back to normal after hivebent (was expecting the trolls to actually vanish from the plot, at least for a while).

    Here's a riddle I have for you /co/... In the recent memo, Karkat more or less implied that Vriska will kill Dave in the future, 3rd-cycle-Dave's hostility towards Vriska seems to confirm this.
    My question is, how/why would Vriska kill Dave, especially since she damn well knows it's an empty gesture, due to dream-selves and the fact that he can time travel.
    ...Actually, could the meaningless of killing Dave be why Vriska does it in the first place? Because she figures that if he's able to have an alternate self, murdering him in a non-final matter is no big deal? Like "I don't get why you're so pissed off, you're still here aren't you????????"

    You expected a man who brings back even the most obscure object to completely abandon fourteen percent of the story? I mean, you honestly thought he'd completly do away with the forces that created our universe that happen to be tangible and observable in a comic about actions of multiversal proportions?

    I mean, the hell did you think would happen? We'd get a chapter introducing twelve fleshed out characters who'd simply vanish the moment their chapter would end? That somehow the elements introduced would cease to exist by the time we became used to them? Why the FUCK would you bring yourself to believe something like that?

    That raises an interesting question. Dave is rich enough from his Weird Stockmarket Shit to be able to buy every single fraymotif ever. He also has gear alchemised by his future and present selves, as well as three whole days he could be using to hone his skills.

    ...Perhaps I was unclear. What I'm trying to say is, that as the Knight of Time, Dave is more or less immortal. Vriska knows this, given that Kanaya mentions that Rose is the only screen that goes black, that means that Vriska can see Dave right until the very end.
    Thus, she can't murder the 'real' him, only alternate future-selves. She is perfectly aware of this, and 'kills' him anyway, and likely watches as he's still around.
    My question is what reason could she have for doing so?

    Technically Karkat's time shenanigans - John wouldn't have handing the bunnies out otherwise.
    But he wouldn't have told John that he was going to do it unless he saw John do it from the future.

    Speaking of riddles... What's the deal with Draconian Dignitary/Diamonds Droog? Dignitary created Becquerel for reasons unknown... and could very well be that dog's true master. And Droog... he understands weird time shit better than most of the Felt, and his favored weapon is a Pool Cue which is... auspicious. Could he be a double agent or something?

    Two different DD's. Diamonds Droog is an agent of Troll Derse and a Troll Exile. Draconian Dignitary is an agent of the Kid's Derse, and since he wasn't seen among the exiles may have been killed at some point.

    So if Bec considers one her Master Diamonds Droog wouldn't be it unless he's somehow using his troll, who doesn't communicate with the kids often anyway, to talk them into things and manipulate his other incarnation by Proxy.

    On one hand thats so convoluted it probably wouldn't make any sense. On the other hand it's convoluted so Andrew will probably do it anyway.

    It could be John will gain levels from beating Dave. I mean, he could technically have less levels before the fight and then gain a ton for beating another player character. Compared to three days of grinding, the experience total would end in John's favor.

    There's some logic to that. If the kids were to find out how the journals were eventually used, and still had a copy to use for themselves, that'd mean they could add Green Lightning to pretty much anything that'll fit in an alchemizer. There's quite a few ways that could go wrong.

    So, in the last couple threads, people have been arguing about just who exactly John'll end up with. But the question I have is: who do you think he's best OFF owith?

    I mean there's Vriska, a sociopath who has trouble discerning reality from fiction, which has caused both death and severe injury in several of her comrades.

    And Rose, A social recluse with mother issues who appears to be slowly going insane due to the whispers of the dark gods. There's also sort of the fact that she wants to cause mass destruction across all of reality.

    And of course the plethora of other ships that I'm too lazy to write a bad description for... but the point is: the guy's kind of fucked. He has all these people that want to snog his nob, and they're all batshit insane. It's like a lose lose situation for the guy all the way through.

    I'd like to assume the latter, however it's been implied a few times since then that Vriska and Terezi are apparently using John and Dave in something of a proxy war against each other.

    Then again, it may be nothing more than a competition between the two Scourge Sisters to see whose chosen human can do the most damage come the big showdown against Lord English.

Seeing as DD obtaining the journal, heading to the Frog Temple, creating Becquerel, and the Frog Temple being sent to Earth during the Reckoning, all seemed to take place pretty quickly.

    Hussie's gonna pull one out of left field and troll everyone. Just watch, by the end, John'll end up with Nepeta, Rose will be with Sollux, and Dave'll somehow hook up with Crumple Hat.

    I probably would have used that word if I had remembered it, or done any research into the topic before I started writing. Some quick wikipedia clicks just now led me to the Minnesota Starvation Experiment. The results of the experiement are very interesting to read:

    >Among the many conclusions from the study was the confirmation that prolonged semi-starvation produces significant increases in depression, hysteria and hypochondriasis as measured using the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI), a standardized test administered during the experimental period. Indeed, most of the subjects experienced periods of severe emotional distress and depression. There were extreme reactions to the psychological effects during the experiment including self-mutilation (one subject amputated three fingers of his hand with an axe, though the subject was unsure if he had done so intentionally or accidentally).[1] Participants exhibited a preoccupation with food, both during the starvation period and the rehabilitation phase. Sexual interest was drastically reduced and the volunteers showed signs of social withdrawal and isolation. The participants reported a decline in concentration, comprehension and judgment capabilities, although the standardized tests administered showed no actual signs of diminished capacity. There were marked declines in physiological processes indicative of decreases in each subject’s basal metabolic rate (the energy required by the body in a state of rest) and reflected in reduced body temperature, respiration and heart rate. Some of the subjects exhibited edema (swelling) in the extremities, presumably due to the massive quantities of water the participants consumed attempting to fill their stomachs during the starvation period.

    Because not all fanfiction is bad. Granted, the vast majority of it is, but some is actually quality writing. Especially considering that professional writers sometimes write fanfiction of franchises other than their own for fun - for instance, Neil Gaiman writes Sherlock Homes fanfiction. Writerfag is not a professional writer, but nevertheless, her stuff isn't exactly bad. Though she takes massive liberties with the characterisations of the characters, she can actually put together decent stories every now and then.
    >> writerfag !!ig4Goj5N18c 10/22/10(Fri)05:51 No.20703680
    I think a lot of people read my stuff for several reasons:
    - I make a lot of it, so there's always people seeing something new and going "hey, is there more?".
    - I started writing stuff during the hiatus after [S]: Make her pay, and I think a lot of people used my stuff to fuel their homestuck addition while Hussie was taking the break.
    - I like to do a lot of shipping stuff, so tht's bound to draw a crowd.
    - When I'm not doing love-dovey crap in the main stories I like to take requests and fuck around with other topics, which lets me reach a broader audience. I have talked to people who said they loved my stuff, but didn't read _____ for a personal reason.

    Now, I'm not saying I'm a fantastic writer or anything. A lot of the stuff I do is spur of the moment, while the rest has done degree of planning to it. I make mistakes and I'm well aware of the fact that sometimes the characters are... well, out of character, intentional or not. Veil Death was a chance to not give a fuck about keeping the characters like they are in the actual comic, due to them being trapped in the lab for almost a year when the story starts. If I had wanted to make Veil Death a long story like cg gc or Veil Life, I probably would have described the changes in the troll's personalities more completely as they lived in isolation for so long.

    I'm completely ok with people not liking what I do. Some people don't like fanfics. Personally I could not give a damn about all this voice-acting stuff, but hey, if they're having fun doing it, they should go right ahead.

    >The enduring popularity of Sherlock Holmes has led to hundreds of works based on the character – both adaptations into other media and original stories. After Arthur Conan Doyle's death in 1930, his works' copyright expired in the United Kingdom in 1980[43] and they are public domain in most of the world (modern expiry term being 70 years). All works published in the United States prior to 1923 are in the public domain; this includes all Sherlock Holmes stories with the exception of The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes. For works published after 1923 but before 1963, if the copyright was registered, its term lasts for 95 years[44]. The Conan Doyle heirs registered the copyright in 1981[45]. Since Case-Book was published in 1927, its copyright will expire at the end of 2022.

    However, he still knows exactly what he's doing. This becomes evident in Act 5 Part 2, when a lot of the Weird Time Shit starts really falling into place. He also types up recaps at the end of Act 3 and Act 4, just to make sure that everyone stays on the same page. Like this one:

    MSPA has a colossal fan base in terms of online presence, with people in almost every single timezone on the planet reading the strip and coming to /co/ to discuss it - hence the 24-hour continuous presence. And since the plot is so complicated and there are so many characters worth paying attention to, there's always something for us to talk about.

    Plus there's the fact that Hussie's update schedule is both highly frequent and extremely erratic, so it helps to have just one Homestuck thread on /co/ so that all the shit is contained there instead of multiple threads popping up every time he posts a new page.

    The frequent updates is another thing. Could you imagine the kind of activity that'd be surrounding, say, Homestar Runner if it updated every single day?

    It'd be goddamn chaos.

    I'm pretty sure it does. Not sure when it last updated, though. Probably a while ago now.

    What do you get when you cross something that updates all the time with something that never updates at all?

    Homestuck Runner
