Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Western Spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun.
Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-two million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue green planet.
Here our story of seven acts begins.

Elsewhere in paradox space, we examine another planet, forgotten by time.

But we will strive to remember. What was this planet's name?

Mirror the twelve hostile trolls'
separate session

Their journeys began
in quite a similar way
all paradox clones

Fallen from the sky
as infants amidst space rocks
with shared destinies

To save their homeworld
they end up destroying it
for Skaia's safety

But was it worth it?
Agents and exiles settle
on their barren home

What's my point again?
I lost it some time ago.


For those of you who are just joining us, and would like to know more about the story...

ophomestuck.png

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.

If I wasn't REALLY LAZY, I would have edited each photo to include character descriptions.testmb.gif

The server user builds up the client's house.
An exile's station will appear at the server user's location. That exile will talk to the client.
For example, WV found the cork station at Rose's place and talked to John.
The station will resemble the cruxite item.

John had a blue Sassacre book, and found an aged brown copy in a safe. The brown book had an inscription from his Nanna, which we saw at the start of Act 3. At the end of act 3, Nannasprite inscribed the blue book and sent it to LOWAS. Grandpa Harley retrieved it and took it to the Veil. The blue book went back in time on a meteor and eventually became the brown book.

Rose and Dave dream on Derse and hear the gods. Aradia hears the voices of her dead ancestors. Terezi dreams on Prospit and hears her incubating lusus. Sollux hears screams of the imminently deceased and has psychic visions.
I think of trolls as being a bit like slashers/shippers, in that almost any interpersonal relationship of sufficient strength can be grounds for romance, but the nature of that relationship determines the character of the romance.

Humans have one icon to depict romance: <3

Trolls have four.

Broadly implicated: redrom = good, blackrom = not so good

Heart:
Matesprits
Probably the closest to human romance

Diamond:
Moirallegiance = Moira (mythological personification of fate) + allegiance

Zuki wrote:
trolls can conceive of a kind of emotional intimacy being implied by the necessity of mediation. Of taking two individuals that might be polarizing on their own, and forming a new stable triad. Takes at least three legs to create a stable base for a table, stool, or chair. And it has to be something that all three parties are willing to engage in, like a negotiation.

Spade:
Kismesis = kismet + nemesis
The troll equivalent of an arch nemesis, tied to some element of destiny. Nemesis in no way associated with human concept of romance, but for trolls it apparently is. Clearly falls under blackrom category.
