    If you're thinking of what I think you're thinking of, it's mostly what Vriska was telling him:

    But yeah, as for this situation, Rose is already godtier, unlike last time. You only need to kiss to wake up a dreamself.

    I went back and checked the flash and it doesn't say whether she died heroically or justly, but Roxy did save her from being disintegrated so I'm guessing "heroically" or else it wouldn't have mattered. Roxy may not know how the godtier mechanics work (she was still passed out when Jake was killed and then revived), though. Being bummed is still an appropriate response, though, so I guess the question is whether she's going to be surprised in a few minutes.

    I'm fairly certain Rose will get a God Tier mulligan. She basically charged the Condesce and got jacked up immediately. It's very similar to when John was ganked by Bec Noir when he was fighting with Rose.

    On the other hand, I am fairly certain that the Just/Heroic thing is something of an escape hatch for Hussie to be free to kill off God Tier characters when he deems it necessary, so it's entirely possible it's a heroic death just because drama. It would also mean that (if we assume Dirk is dead) both groups would be down to not only one kid, but the leaders of their respective groups (remember that Dirk said Roxy was kinda the de facto leader as a Void player in a void session).

    Dirk's alive, he was in this update!

    are we sure she's even dead? getting impaled is pretty dire, but you never know.

    Well, Terezi survived being impaled and spiked into the ground from a few hundred feet up, but sometimes it seems like the trolls are made of sterner stuff.

    why would we assume dirk is dead
    I'm basically considering all of this null and void anyway since John is probably going to learn to control his retcon powers by talking to Roxy and fix some or all of this. Dirk might as well be dead, as it's symbolic of him basically giving up.

    Let's be honest, it's an apt comparison. Most discussions about her these days tend to center on whether she's the best or the worst, and she's had a huge impact on the narrative of "gaming culture", if you buy into that sort of thing. Also, if the rumors I've heard on Reddit are true, she's led countless children to their death in the jaws of a giant spider.

    It's not comparable at all.

    People hate Zoe Quinn for stupid bullshit reasons.

    People hate Vriska for completely justifiable reasons.

    Looking at Zoe's twitter pic, is that a negg? And was Neopets secretly a PuA haunt?!

    As far as I know, Neopets was just a "secret" furry hangout.

    It was a badly kept secret.

    If there were furries on neopets they must have been of the innocuous Jade variety, I don't recall stumbling across anything untoward at all.

    Also that was 14 years ago holy shit.

    Alls I'm saying is, she's a very divisive subject.

    And since I know it's a hot-button topic, I just want to clarify that all statements made above are for fun. I don't have much of an opinion, one way or the other, about Ms. Quinn--but I assume if a bunch of immature jerks on the Internet hate her so much, she can't be too bad.

    I was way into Neopets when I was in high school. I never noticed any furries.

    But before Neopets I played Furcadia briefly, in my innocence, because oh boy you get to be a cat person and build dreams how fun wait what do you mean "wanna cyber?" hmm think I'll delete this program now.

    Neopets wasn't blocked on my High School's network so there was actually quite a few people that played it.

    I played Neopets for a few months in sixth grade and remember basically nothing about it.

    Funny story, there was a sixth-grade school group from my elementary school in the museum I volunteer at last week, and it was the same teacher I had. Cool guy, and he either remembered me or did a good job of faking.

    Later on I realized that none of the kids in his class now even existed when I was there.

    I kind of feel bad for this J.N. Wiedle, getting stuck illustrating an intentionally overlong, overflorid Hussie monologue by showing a guy walking down nondescript hallways. Maybe the artist will get something fun to do on the third page!

    there's actually a lot of academic work being done on, like, fandom and internet culture and things

    i've never found anything about homestuck but it's been a while since i last checked. we wouldn't be too far from something getting published, there's got to be like a hundred starving postgrads working on it as we speak

    The artifacts just got so thick that john got lost in them and ended up on the void

    I mean I guess that might have been a null timeline? but I don't see any immediate reason to assume so

  • Cilla BlackCilla Black Priscilla!!! Registered User regular
    Well

    entire people getting overwritten by artifacts while others stand around unaffected make me think something is going on with reality, and it isn't just a joke-y thing anymore

    I have like, one prediction regarding Homestuck, and that is Lord English knocked over Slick's favorite casino to steal the licorice scotty dogs so he could send them to his past self in order to bribe Jack Noir to kill Calliope and get everything rolling.

    I didn't mean the end of act curtains

    Just like it's less that dirk was erased by the artifacts and more like the space between him and John got so distorted that they lost each other

    We haven ever actually seen a doomed timeline fade away so it's hard to say but it seems weird that it'd be the exact same visual effect as the pixie dust corruption

    but aranea was intentionally trying to create a doomed timeline so she could heal it so who knows

    Makes sense, since licorice scotty dogs can neither be created nor destroyed.
