homestuck is a case study proving the long-standing “kids and their dumb babysitter get up to antics” genre of movie correct. unsupervised 13 year olds can do anything but unsupervised 16 year olds are so inconsolably horny they can only cause emotional and physical damage
beta session succeeds because it’s made of four mostly normal 13 y/os who know nothing except minecraft. alpha session fails on entry because it’s made of four 16 y/o supergeniuses who all want to fuck each other so bad they cant think
Season 13, episode 4: The Beta
i’m revisiting this post because i just realized that my favorite part of this image is the outfit costanza is wearing. because i naïvely thought at first, “oh, that’s john egbert’s outfit lol.” but… no. this is a knight of breath outfit, which no character in homestuck is. op gave costanza his own personal classpect. and i have to respect that
are yall still doing the album ? I really want to listen to it :/
Yeah! It’s actually been out for a while now, lost most interest in posting about it but it exists!
list of the most moments in homestuck of all time:
- when dave is in his room after 3 years and looks at the selfies he took when he was younger and starts laughing and then crying
- when aradia is giving her soliloquy at the end of hivebent and you have to scroll all the way down that really long panel and she says “a scratch”
- when bec prototypes himself in [S] Jade: Enter and there’s a split second before you realize what that means
- when kanaya sees vriska kissing tavros and throws the dress out of her room and starts crying and her lusus taps her on the shoulder and consoles her
- when dave is sitting on the roof with dirk and says “how did you tell your friends”
- the end of that last pesterlog between dirk and hal. you know what i’m talking about
- dave and rose standing next to each other waiting for the tumor to explode
- Future Dream Rose: Cease to exist.
feel free to add on
Being a homestuck fan nowadays is just “yeah it was a big part of my life and I still look back on it fondly now that it’s over”
*muffled screaming and banging noises coming from behind a door covered in locks, labeled ‘do not open’*
“Oh that’s the post-canon content. We don’t talk about that, homestuck ended in 2016”
That’s cool if you want to stick around reading a purposefully-opaque narrative that constantly laughs at the reader for wanting to engage with it in good faith and gleefully “deconstructs” the characters’ hard-earned development to prove the point that the reader is a fool for wanting a satisfying ending, just because you feel like you’re cooler and more mature for engaging with it. Some of us outgrew our dave strider phases though
how to make a hit album:
1 - fight evil
2 - make songs about the evil dudes you fought
3 - throw in some love songs or whatever
The only reasonable way to make an album about your favorite fictional character is to write a self-indulgent, melodramatic mess about it. See also: Homestuck
are you implying someone made a whole ass album over homestuck, frank.
There was a whole ass album over Homestuck. I have not heard enough Homestuck lately to confirm or deny. But the album was called “How To Enter Homestuck” and it was a hit.
okay but OP did you know that Homestuck actually has like. over thirty albums complete with a bandcamp page
