Oh shit 88%. So if he just went up 7% in two days, it'll be done about the 20th? And we'll have to wait five days until it drops on 10/25 if he decides to stall it.

FIVE DAYS

Oh holy fuck deoxys <3333333333333

This is going straight to Skaianet.

EDIT: I should explain, Skaianet is a fansite for Homestuck that's largely used for it's imageboard, which is exclusively MSPA art or related fanart. Can I post this to there?

Yeah Zael is a pretty frequent contributor and poster to Skaianet he's probably right. D:

Oh wwell, I'll post it to some other places in the morning where I'm more familiar with the users. They will like it.

Doesn't take too long if you devote about a half-hour to it every day.

Anyway, new fanventure recommendation: Don't Name It.

Does anyone know if there's an Act 5 recap?
Spoiler: show
I got to about the part where all the trolls started killing each other, and then realized I had no idea what was going on. I mean, more so than usual.
I think the last part I really remember with much clarity is where John is flying his car around with his new friend, talking to Jade.


Also, where can find Homestuck music?

Just PM me any questions, I think you might be past the last recap.

Also, moozik.

So, is Homestuck basically a fake MUD with 4th grade-level toilet humor and other childish jokes? =/ Got to the part where he pulls arms out of a treasure chest and had had enough, but am willing to give it a proper go if there's more to this story than "ZOOSMELL POOPLORD" and similar.

It's like a weird combination of Adventure Time, logical fallacies, metanarration, and memes.

The beginning is weird. I didn't like it at all for a while but it gets better. The weird inventory shit still annoys the crap out of me, but it goes away later on for the most part.

Captchalogue, the troll typing styles, and the huge cast of characters are really the only big problems for me.

In case that doesn't answer your question, Talon, yes it does get past that. Maybe you should start with Problem Sleuth first, it's a lot less immature at parts.

I have no idea what Adventure Time is, so that doesn't help me. Logical fallacies are awful, unless he's making fun of them and not the one cramming them down the "players"'s throats. Metanarration depends entirely on the piece. Memes depend entirely on the memes being referenced.

Just tell me this: is it more "lol, I made a poop joke with a stupid name, a ku ku ku X3" humor? Yes or no?

There's not a lot of crude humor. It just really happens when someone is introduced and then that's about it.

It uses logical fallacies the same way Futurama does, if that's any help. And if that doesn't help, it means that it uses them in a self-aware manner. For example, a certain part of the story seems to be completely based off of Futurama's episode "Roswell that Ends Well" where time travel paradox is used humorously to create a situation where Fry becomes his own grandfather. This isn't just a joke, though, because that situation later has actual ramifications for several episodes.

By "memes" I mean, that style of ironic thinking that produces memes.
The metanarration is ok at best, but occurs far enough in the story that you are already invested and roll with it.

Also, I ninja'd you.

Personally, I'm OK with all of this now. It's just the first two really really annoyed me a lot at first but I stuck with it and was glad I did.

Well, towards the end captchalogue plays less and less of a role, so that doesn't bother me. The troll stuff is partly the reason for why I kind of lost my place in Act 5: it was just way too much and wasn't even really enjoyable trying to read it anymore. The cast of characters is just... ugh. I continually get the trolls confused with each other.

The first time reading there was a lot of stuff I missed because I skipped random logs and stuff. But after rereading it I realized I missed a ton of stuff. Also I know who all the characters and stories and stuff are now.

I'm willing to admit it's my fault, considering I read basically through Act 5 in 2 days.

I liked the inventory shenanigans. Dave's hashmap in particular.

Trivia: Hussie was originally planning to make a flash where Dave and Bro waged an epic hashrap battle. That was why Dave picked up all that useless shit before [S] Dave: Ascend to the Highest Point of the Building. Time restraints, however, meant that he couldn't make it. And now we'll never see it, ever! That's the part of your life you'll feel is missing, forever.

Talon should be less completely impatient and dismissive.

EDIT: Also don't feel bad if you skip most of the troll logs at first, everyone does that. Everyone. Then later, when you love the characters, you go back and cherish every one. I probably would've quit during Hivebent if there weren't a few interesting things keeping me hooked. Namely, Terezi's trial.

And for new readers, try and read up to at least WV: Ascend. If you don't like it by then, it probably isn't your thing. Personally I would say to read up to [S] Enter but that's probably way too long.
