Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

MSPA: Homestuck: I suddenly understand jack shit

Welcome to Homestuck, a story of seven acts.

ath.png

We are on Act 5, part 2.

b.pngr.png

TT: We will snatch purpose from the jaws of futility.

EB: :D
EB: see you soon!
CG: WAIT
CG: WHAT

CAA: drifting in the wide 0rbit 0f 0ur s00n t0 be null sessi0n
CAA: banished fr0m the universe we left behind

CAA: and yet in being denied the ultimate reward
CAA: we w0uld be barred fr0m entry
CAA: int0 the universe we created

m2.jpg

enj0y engineering the present pr0blem as y0u try t0 s0lve it

m3.jpg

its n0t like a decisi0n y0u are ab0ut t0 make will invariably lead t0 every pr0blem we have and will ever face as well as the great und0ing itself
just keep listening to y0ur angry impulses it will all be fine

never mind. lets pretend i didnt say that and lets als0 pretend it isnt inevitable

GC: OH H3LL
GC: L1ST3N TH3 UN1V3RS3 W1LL 34T P4R4DOX3S FOR BR34KF4ST
GC: 4ND SO W1LL TH1S G4M3
GC: G3T US3D TO 1T

For those of you who are just joining us...

And please post your reactions so we can vicariously relive meeting all these characters for the first time! It's tradition.

The story is told as if it were a text adventure game. Each command you click underneath the comic is really just a next button. All the commands for the first year of the story were suggested by Homestuck readers on the MSPA forum. A few weeks before Homestuck's anniversary, Andrew locked all the suggestion boxes and took over command-authoring. He still gets input from the community in subtle and unpredictable ways.
P.S. It's made in Photoshop and Flash

Or if the first few panels of Act 1 don't keep your attention, click here and get yourself intrigued. There's some spoilers since it's from the middle of the story, but mostly it's enigmatic foreshadowing.

    idea

    Why don't we just set up a crwth PAXeast fund, like for teefs at paxprime? Everyone could donate a little bit and before you know it we'd have enough to send crwth to Boston

    Idea Addendum

    Could it possibly be an RMED and crwth PAX East fund? We both live in Orlando, soooo...

    I mean, if that would be too much trouble, then yeah, a crwthPAX fund would be cool.

    It was overwhelming in the best way possible. like every bit of information hit me at once. It's a walkabout flash! Earthbound sprites! Crustacean remix!
    I didn't even start playing for like five minutes, I was just flipping out and staring at the screen
