Yes, the chats between the main 4 and the grey thingies are important. Go back and read whatever you skipped.

They are pretty much literally the most important part of the comic, really.

The grey thingies are the trolls

And the logs are important, yes.

Unless it's really a problem, just tough out the leetspeak, you get used to it eventually.

I'm starting to have a problem with this comic and that a lot of the characters are really just sounding the same. If it wasn't for the different colors and the writing quirks, I'd barely be able to tell anyone apart if it were a group conversation between Karkat, Sollux, John, Dave, Tavros, Jane, Dirk etc... Maybe that's why Hussie started the colors and writing quirks cause he knew he couldn't make separate voices for so many characters, it is a tough skill to learn for a lot of people, but this late in the game, idk. Feels like I should have a better idea for a voice for these guys by now.

Might just be that there are so many characters and so much jumping around from point to point and that we don't stick around with any group of characters for very long anymore that it's just difficult for Hussie to write since I felt like the characters had a more defined voice in previous parts.

I think part of it might be that the story is amping up quite a bit as of late, at the sacrifice of a little bit of characterization.

I also think it's supposed to reflect that they're all sorta "rubbing off" on each other to an extent. There's some places where it's pretty obvious (Tavros becoming more Vriska-like, Karkat becoming more Dave-like) but it's a little more subtle in other places.

I think that we'll get back to stronger characters once we get a bit of a reprieve from all this worldbuilding and backstorying.

That was definitely another thought that I had and it's been shown that this happens like back when John was endearing to Vriska by copying her 8 thing. Still, it has become a lot more dull reading it lately. All of this exposition dump doesn't help either. Stronger characters once we get a reprieve? I don't know about that either. These guys have to really start separating themselves to stop sounding like clones of each other.

That is a symptom of having a story as long as Homestuck, and it's really hard to avoid that. It's not the first time it's happened, nor will it be the last. I do agree, though hopefully once everyone is finally able to put aside personal drama, personalities will pick back up and sort of take their own form again instead of swirling about in a melting pot.

The amount of haters coming out though is annoying. Talking about how shes a flat/static character. It's like did you even read the last 10 pages?

Vriska's always been the best. She's a crazy bitch, polarasing as all hell, but she's the one that got the most things done, good and bad in the comic as a whole, even amongst the human characters, has had a persistent voice throughout even when she's going through different moods of bitchiness and softness. She might not be a great "person" but she is a great character. Even though her primary mode might be aggressive bitchiness, she's ranged all the way to contemplative sadness and even now you can tell how hurt and betrayed she felt just by telling that story of the weapon that needs to be found and how no one else has the stones but her to do whats needed.

People calling her flat and static just can't see the range before the bitchiness. She's never been stuck in one state.

From somebody who hasn't read Homestuck all the way through and therefor should probably stay the fuck away from this thread;

I've heard that many people die, and I'm sort of hoping that she's one of them. I despise her. She's a well developed sociopath, and I hate her for it. CURSE YOU VRISKAAAAA

(Act 5, Act 2 is where I'm currently at.)

Hussie went all out! He actually retconed all of those pages, even those that were in a middle of a flash. Well, I got to hand it to him.
