Let Me Tell You About Homestuck
« on: December 05, 2012, 06:00:20 AM »
This is a thread for the discussion of the amazing webcomic/thingamabobber that is Homestuck.

I'd warn you all, the nature of Homestuck means that there could be RAMPANT SPOILERS in here beyond this point, so proceed at your own risk.

As soon as I can think of a good way to describe it, I'll do so in this post, so that those of you who need a good description before trying to get into it can have one. I may have to ask Arcanger for help or something. XD

Well MasterFirebender, I didn't know you were actually Terezi. This changes everything. XD

Terezi is awesome. :3 And I'm fairly sure she and certain other characters have taught me to read Leet. :p

You are correct. :D When I was first reading Homestuck, when I got around to Vriska I was at first all "man no the Scorpio troll is a jerk D:" but then I was like "yeah she's a jerk but she's an AWESOME jerk" and she's one of my favourite A2 trolls, along with Terezi and Tavros and Kanaya. XD

^Haha, it's a webcomic, so you read it, for the most part. :3

It's really good, I'd suggest you look it up and start reading it. It's got plenty of temporal shenanigans in it! xD

0h, l00k2 like there'2 already a thread f0r thi2.

i'll ju2t d0 thi2 here then.

n0n-2p0ilery 2ummary 0f h0me2tuck:
it'2 like jumanji, in 2pace, with a l0t w0r2e pr0blem2 than li0n2 0n the pian0.

2p0iler-ridden summary 0f d00m
2urpri2e cap2 re2ide here (click to show/hide)2ummary 0f H0me2tuck (up t0 Hivebent, becau2e by then, y0u'll kn0w if y0u want t0 read thi2 0r n0t - there I2 m0re after thi2)

20 the2e f0ur kid2 play thi2 c0mputer game, and we're 2till n0t 2ure if the game cau2e2 the de2tructi0n 0f Earth, 0r if it wa2 g0ing t0 be de2tr0yed anyway2 and they managed t0 2ave them2elve2 thr0ugh it. Anyway2, they and their h0u2e2 are tran2p0rted t0 f0ur different planet2, f0ll0wing the naming 2cheme 0f Land 0f ____ and ____ (the2e are kn0wn by their acr0nym2, f0r example, L0HAC - Land 0f Heat and Cl0ckw0rk)

They have t0 build up their h0u2e2 t0 reach the gate ab0ve them by 'alchemizing' m0re wall2 and fl00r2. T0 d0 thi2, they need gri2t, which y0u get fr0m killing m0n2ter2.

They al20 have a thing called a kernel2prite, which came 0ut 0f 0ne 0f the device2 needed t0 launch the game. The2e are pr0t0typed tw0 time2, 0nce bef0re entering, 0nce after, in the ideal 2cenari0. After the fir2t pr0t0typing, the kernel2prite 2plit2, turning it int0 a kernel and a 2prite. The 2prite take2 the f0rm 0f the fir2t pr0t0typing, and the kernel flie2 0ff t0 the m00n2 0f 2kaia (Pr02pit and Der2e). The 2prite i2 meant a2 a guide, which 20metime2 make2 the dual pr0t0typing e22ential (e2pecially when pr0t0typed with a n0n-2peaking/human0id item).

20 n0w we're 0n an0ther planet, killing m0n2ter2 and building/alchemizing thing2. getting thr0ugh the fir2t gate 0f 2even m02tly ju2t get2 y0u 0nt0 the planet'2 2urface. The 2ec0nd gate deliver2 y0u t0 a c0-player'2 planet. I believe y0ur 2erver. I c0uld be wr0ng.

0h wait, I 2h0uld 0utline the 2erver-client relati0n2hip, 2h0uldn't I? Y0ur 2erver re2hape2 y0ur h0u2e f0r y0u and depl0y2 y0ur machine2 (Alchemiter, t0tem lathe, etc.) They're in c0ntr0l 0f y0ur n0n-active envir0nment. They cann0t m0ve y0u. Every per20n playing act2 a2 b0th a client and a 2erver, ju2t t0 different pe0ple. Becau2e it need2 t0 create a l00p. I.E. 2erver A -> Client A = 2erver B -> Client B = 2erver C -> Client D = 2erver D -> Client D = 2erver A.

0k, n0w that'2 e2tabli2hed, back t0 the 2t0ry. Fir2t client in i2 the leader, and typically churn2 0ut the m02t gri2t. There are pr0gram2 that 2hare the gri2t am0ng player2 t0 help each 0ther.

Anyway2, y0u climb level2 by g0ing thr0ugh gate2 and beating m0n2ter2 like a RPG 2tyle game. There are a c0uple fla2h page2 that let y0u play, even.

During thi2, and even in the pa2t, the2e tr0ll2 (that'2 the name 0f their 2pecie2, but y0u c0uld al20 call them Alternian2 - they're alien2) keep c0ntacting the f0ur human2. N0t all 0f them th0ugh, 20me decline t0 c0ntact the human2. The m02t pr0lific 0ne 0f which i2 Karkat (wh0 may 0r may n0t be the 0nly character y0u kn0w by name). He'2 very 2h0uty and angry, and it'2 funny.

The tr0ll2 are all r0ughly c0nnected t0 the 12 2ign z0diac (d0n't get me 2tarted 0n 0phuchiu2, I have W0RD2 ab0ut that). Karkat kind 0f halfway 2crew2 it up th0ugh, a2 he'2 a mutant with n0rmal ('candy') red bl00d, which i2 weird f0r tr0ll2. Tr0ll2 have a hem02pectrum, which g0e2 in the 0rder 0f: ru2t, fudge, mu2tard, 0live, jade, teal, cerulean, indig0, purple, vi0let, fu2chia. Vi0let and fu2chia bl00d tr0ll2 are 2eadweller2, and thu2 have fin2 0n their face2 where ear2 w0uld g0. Tr0ll2 are n0t can0nically drawn with ear2. Fanart th0ugh . . . anything g0e2.
Karkat'2 2ymb0l i2 that 0f cancer, which 2h0uld place him between the mu2tard and 0live bl00d2 (being gemini and le0 re2pectively), but becau2e he'2 mutant, he i2n't. There are the0rie2 that becau2e 0f thi2, if he weren't mutated with red bl00d, he w0uld be a lime bl00d, which i2 a ca2te 0f tr0ll2 that wa2 eradicated.

The rea20n the tr0ll2 are c0ntacting the2e human2 i2 becau2e 0f an incident with 0ne 0f their 2prite2 being 2ec0nd-pr0t0typed with an extremely p0werful being (Becquerel, the d0g. He'2 what'2 kn0wn a2 a fir2t guardian, and ha2 nearly g0dlike p0wer2), cau2ing the r0gue agent 0f der2e (0ne 0f the m00n2) t0 g0 0n a killing rampage, and bu2ted int0 the tr0ll2' 2e22i0n 0f thi2 game, ruining their prize.

The prize. Well . . . during thi2 game, a c0uple player2 are 2et up t0 breed a 2pecial fr0g - a fr0g that h0ld2 a wh0le univer2e in it (and ye2, it 2tate2 the kid2' univer2e i2 in a fr0g t00). In breeding thi2 fr0g, depending 0n h0w well y0u d0 it (becau2e Karkat wa2n't 20 great at it), y0u can create a perfect univer2e, and y0u get t0 enter it and enj0y paradi2e. The kid2' univer2e i2 the 0ne the tr0ll2 created (and l0l created we2tern z0diac). It'2 al20 g0t cancer. becau2e l0l Karkat = z0diac Cancer.

Anyway2. The tr0ll2 are at thi2 p0int n0t 0n Alternia (it wa2 de2tr0yed in their 2e22i0n) but 0n a mete0r, c0ntacting the kid2. There'2 a bit 0f ten2i0n, and a bit 0f murder t00. And blinding2. N0t all 0f the tr0ll2 get al0ng, after all. They end up directing the f0ur kid2 t0 d0 a 2cratch 0n their game, which i2 like a hard re2et.

Then the alpha kid2 c0me in (the fir2t kid2 and tr0ll2 are beta)

00p2, I've 0ver2h0t hivebent.

Anyway2, 0ne la2t thing - g0d tier2.
0nce y0u reach the la2t tier/level y0u can be n0rmally, y0u can g0 t0 the g0d tier2. T0 d0 thi2, typically, y0u die 0n a que2t bed. 2eri0u2ly, that'2 h0w it w0rk2. Lay d0wn 0n the bed and die. Then y0u wake up in g0d tier m0de, which change2 y0ur cl0the2 and y0u get p0wer2, 0bvi0u2ly. There are t00 many variant2 t0 what y0u c0uld be, 20 I'd 2ugge2t l00king up the M2PA wikia f0r 'a2pect2' if y0u want t0 kn0w m0re ab0ut them all.

there. i'm d0ne. i'm tired 0f being t0ld we d0n't explain anything, 20 there'2 y0ur explanati0n.

0h, and it'2 l0ng? 20me page2 are literally ju2t picture2. 20me are fla2h game2 y0u get t0 play. 20me are fla2h vide02 y0u 2it and watch.
