>>94594683
If we're to be kind to Hussie (and I won't be), then her change could be attributed to a meta plot development. After all, the reason she did all that business with the plotting and the mind controlling was so that she could become interesting and relevant, and thus, she became a villain; the only way she could become interesting and relevant with the already saturated cast of heroes and protag.

But even this little is expecting too much of Hussie at that point of the story.

what? We saw his end. His end was foreshadowed. We saw his origin, we were what he did during his lifespan, and saw the effects he had on the main characters.

What are you missing about Doc Scratch that you feel you have to keep your notebook open?

>>94595831
> only a single instance of him died
Yes. There was only one.
> his soul was still in Cal
You've got that backwards.
> still being seeded into Universes
No. Doc Scratch was consumed in evoking Lord English. And Lord English didn't follow the players into the next universe.

It's a visual medium. We saw Doc Scratch's end. His storyline ended, there's no whatever-the-opposite-of-closure is (openage? orphanage?)

Doc Scratch has been English's door into every single Universe he ever entered. That's the cycle. English infects the dreams of a species that will play the game with Gamzee's fear magic, Cal is planted, Cal is used to instruct the birth of Scratch, Scratch ends the Universe and himself, allowing English to enter.

It's so weird that LE was introduced as some pan-universal demon virus (contrasting with Bec Noir as localized cancer) and then expedited out of the story like some generic villain: trap him in a black hole and voilà. Except... isn't that just one instance of LE? We'll never know.

Nope. The 3D assets were scrapped and instead we've got jarring slideshow 2D animations. Similar to the flash games actually. Unless they improved since the last trailer, and I highly doubt that.

Can we take a moment to talk about how worthless all the Dancestors were? More than half of them were completely inconsequential to the plot, and nothing is lost if you remove them from the story. And then you look at the ones who actually did something worth noting, and it gets even sadder.
Kurloz was helping Lord English from behind the scenes, but nothing that really made him stand out.
Aranea was a central part of half of Act 6, and was an okay supporting character and a passable antagonist, but she got written out of the story after Game Over got retconed and was never seen, heard of, or even mentioned ever again. Not even by Jake.
And then there's Meenah. She's the one who stood out the most and the one who stayed relevant the longest. The whole thing with her being a teen version of one of the main villains got forgotten latter on, and her arc with (Vriska) got old fast, but the character assassination moment has got to be when she cucked Tavros out of his position as leader of the ghost army, just to get subsequently cucked out of it herself by Vriska, because Hussie's waifu needed even more undeserved importance.
These characters were nothing but a spiteful joke of which the targets were completely oblivious to, and then it kept going until it lost all its meaning.
>>
>>94606651
>More than half of them were completely inconsequential to the plot,
all of them but aranea were inconsequential. Even the touted meenah did jackshit. Aranea was only an excuse to wipe the faults from half the cast so andrew could shit out an ending as quickly as possible.
>>
>>94606651
> how worthless all the Dancestors were?

Yes we knew this. Everybody understands this.

But tumblr wanted to see them anyway for an additional layer of shipping. So they were added. Because at that point the comic was already 75% in the shitter and Andrew didn't gave a fuck.

This should be painfully obvious to anyone and any attempt at defending or arguing the opposite should be ridiculed. It goes without fucking saying.

What pissed me off is that there seemed to be implications that some important shit happened during their session as well.

Apparently, there was a demon running amok in their session, fucking shit up to the point where they had no choice but to hit the restart button.

Kurloz had a nightmare that made him scream so loud that he made Meulin deaf, and was there when Mituna used up all of his psychic abilities to defeat a huge "threat".

Overall, many things seemed to imply that the dancestors were somewhat important, but funnily enough, they just never were. I guess it's not that big of deal as like most characters in Homestuck aren't that important. I mean, Spades Slick died like a random mook.

I don't think I could ever be convinced that Hussie wrote the post-retcon dialogue himself. I asked Cohen straight-up if he ghostwrote that stretch of the comic, and he just asked me if I was out of my mind--take that as you will. It's not exactly an explicit denial, at any rate.

There's something incredibly suspicious about the fact that the actual ending segments were completely bereft of dialogue, coupled with the fact that they was assembled 100% by hired help.

I think a lot of the appeal of Grimdorks is that it hearkens back to a time when the comic was good and the characters in question were at their best. By the time Rosemary happened, Hussie's characterization and writing in general started taking a very steep decline.

Rose and Terezi don't bleed out. Dirk gets glitched, but gets better. John leads the surviving kids in a mad hunt for the ring to bring back Jane under the Batterwitch's nose.
Caliborn finds the ring of Void, taking a liking to it before he is attacked by unknown intruders. We do not see the outcome, but we see blood and the ring fade into the black.
Meanwhile in the dreambubbles the various dead characters meet in different places. Dave meets an altDirk. His convo is paralleled with Dirk talking with Davesprite (who manages to talk Dirk out of the glitchy bullshit) about very similar topics (basically the canon Dave/Dirk talk).
Kanaya meets Aranea, who, true to her nature, is constructing yet another convoluted plan, this time involving a gathering of all alts of the Sylph of Space in one last gambit to push Lord English out of Paradox Space, a plan which first includes piercing a hole in reality itself.
Jake and Jane meetup. They have a feelings jam where they angst about their uselessness to the plot before Jane is mysteriously pulled away.
Meanwhile, the alive gang's efforts are futile. ARquius can't hack Condy's systems, leaving Jane still dead, and still under HIC control.
>>
>>94612320
Meanwhile, we find Karkat in the dreambubbles, who stumbles upon a dead Caliborn. He introduces himself as the future Lord English, yet failed due to his premature death. As Caliborn puts it, the Lord of Time is invincible to paradoxes. It is implied that this is the Caliborn we were following, killed by John's retcon intervention. Caliborn talks, quite a bit, about the nature of leadership, mocking Karkat's many failures. Karkat gets very pissed, asking Caliborn with what fucking authority he gets to judge his fuckups. Cue Caliborn "I am your father moment". Caliborn explains that, as far as his best knowledge, there were always 12 blood castes on Alternia. But one was different. One was the color of Line, the color of his sister. So when English entered Universe A2, he brought with him a "glitch", his calling card which changes from universe to universe where he is directly summoned. Here, specifically, it came in the form of red blood. Karkat's status, life, anger: all inherited from Caliborn. Cue line from Caliborn echoing Karkat's speech in the Act 5 Act 2 opener.

Condy and DD pop in to attack the gang, capturing Rose and almost killing Terezi, who is saved by a newly energized Davesprite and Dirk. They barely escape with their lives. Terezi blindsherself as selfpunishment as the curtains close.

Cue Caliborn's Masterpiece, same as in canon. By this point some obvious contradictions in the story should be popping up, namely that Caliborn lived through this encounter when he died in said same encounter and is now talking to Karkat.
We open Act 66 Intermission 5 with a shot of the ring rolling on the ground in Derse. A hand picks it up. It is, of course, B2 CD: the only good character in Homestuck. He pockets it for safekeeping.
In the dreambubbles, Aranea meets up with Vriska, Meenah, alongside Tavros and a ghost army. She is basically here to brag in their faces about how she (and Tavros) did what they failed to do.

That's not entirely right - Skaia set up the system for all life Earth to get destroyed, just like it (presumably) destroys all life on every other planet the game is played on so it can be reborn, or so that a new universe could be made, or...whatever. The kids were just instruments in Skaia's system to allow this to happen.

You could have made a great story around a system that destroys planets without care to fuel some vaguely explained system of universal rebirth, but Hussie apparently decided that would have been too interesting and ditched it to talk more about cherubs.
>>
>>94612457
Meenah reluctantly follows, leaving Vriska in JUST mode.
Our other hero of light is similarly down in the dumps, dragged down by Condy to "play the rain" and finish her quest to release the Grist Horde to finish the ultimate alchemy and salvage the remnants of the session. Rose has a cool moment where she manages to break herself out, abusing Condy's English immortality by attacking her with a simple pool cue in a classic sylladex misfire to momentarily stun Condy long enough to escape her sight, bumling again into Roxy, who manages to warp them to Dirk and Terezi. Davesprite was heavily wounded in the previous action, dying surrounded by bros. They briefly recoup, preparing the next phase of their plan before being found by CD and a newly revived Crockertier Jane wearing the Ring of Life.
Karkat, reeling from the previous realization of his origins, gets extremly pissed at Caliborn. He has his big bombastic speech about how he doesn't need to be the leader, or even important, he just needs to be a friend, and something something "I'm nothing like you". Simultaneously we see Jane finally begin to struggle against the mind control, not fighting it but joining her general pent up hatred and frustration together, basically merging her mind with the computer, breaking the mind control but leaving her in pissed off mode. She begrudgingly heads off with them to the ruins of LOFAF, reviving the dead gang (sans Jade, who is now alone, as Jake just fucked off to relevancy). Rose and Terezi share info, coming up with what is basically just Vriska's plan from A6I5.
John meets up with dead Vriska, the two reminiscing on the past few years despite their mutual distaste for each other. They especially talk about old Vriska, and what she would have done to fix all of this bullshit. They resolve to follow her example and try to fuck everything up for the better.

I've said it a million times. That dialogue isn't Hussie's writing. 95% certain that at least SOME of it was ghostwritten, at least. You don't just lose writing skill like that, even if you stop giving a fuck. If Hussie published first drafts of the dialogue to the website without putting much consideration into the content, it still wouldn't be as tone-deaf as what we got.

Jade meets Calliope, and the two bond over being lonely and useless. Calliope tells a "fix fiction" about Caliborn, a familiar one but one that ends with Calliope predominating and killing Caliborn. The two are inturrupted by AltCalliope, who completes her side of the tale. She contined her Dead Session, playing the role of the martyr and becoming the inspiration for Paradox Space, manipulating sessions to undo the damage her altbrother English created. Or so she did at first. Over time she began to realize that the nature of Paradox Space was impossible to reconcile with her philosophy. It was a cruel and careless cycle of rebirth and destruction that continued without end, sense, or purpose, merely hurting and harming just to be. So she changed course, instead changing her decisions and choices toward a new end, a new goal: the ultimate destruction of Paradox Space, and the birth of a new multiverse.
Jane warps around the planets, trying to revive the Denizens to complete the ultimate alchemy while everybody prepares to try and kill Condy, now with the help of Dave's sword to break the immortality curse. Lots of angsty reuinion conversation, like Rose and Roxy getting over their mommy issues and Rose and Kanaya reuiniting and talking about how fucked their relationship is. Union Jack appears to almost destroy the battlefield, but John pops in, Goku style, and warps Union Jack out to the wastes of the Furthest Ring to discover more about him.

Jade asks AltCalliope whether she would ever find a true purpose. AltCalliope replies "eh idk sucks to suck bitch", and fucks off. She stumbles across Karkat, wandering through sleep, talking to him about her worries. Karkat explains some of the shit he'd recently gone through (Jade explains that Karkat was talking to altCaliborn, not the alpha Caliborn), and says something along the lines of "you don't need to be important to be a hero, you don't need to be a hero to be a friend, and you don't need a friend to be worth something".
She is promptly revived by Jane, using the oncoming fight as a convenient distraction to revive Jade without fear.
Vriska confronts Meenah and Aranea, poking some key flaws in her plan, namely that Aranea's plan entailed large parts of the ghost army dying so that Lord English could poke a huge hole through reality, one that would likely kill more ghosts. Ergo, Vriska proposes that it'd be better the ghosts die in battle to fight English than die as flimsy bait for a master plan (the irony is not lost on Tavros and Meenah).
John can't hold down Union Jack for long without risking the destruction of reality. He lets him loose on LOTOK, forcing a rapid change in plans which basically creates the same teams as in Collide.
Jade fixes the planets back into place, and goes off to deal with the dogs without telling anyone. She is more or less silent the whole way, but visibly distressed.
Punished Aranea, a spider stripped of her dignity, wanders through the dreambubbles where she is met by a mysterious figure who follows her, silently. She walks, not really caring. Then he speaks. It is Lord English. His speech is refined yet brutish, a somewhat matured version of Caliborn. He is not nearly as limited by time as the others are, even in the land where time doesn't exist. He offers Aranea an offer she cannot refuse, and the Act ends.

Act 6 6 6 has a very special structure. It is made up of 6 subsubsub acts, each intermission consisting of a flash, each act consisting of a monologue by AltCaliborn. In the first, Caliborn admits his alt nature, hating his own weakness for falling to his sister's tricks. He spectates the end of reality.
Cue Collide. Well, the first parts of Collide, all the way up to the end of Oppa Toby Style, but we also see our heroes defeat the Felt and Union Jack. Jane mysteriously does not appear, at all. Our heroes are struggling in vain against Condy. While Union Jack is dead (the same way he dies in canon), due to the self-referential nature of the code Condy is virtually unkillable, in a sense even moreso than English himself.
Caliborn explains why. As it turns out, there's a reason English doesn't talk much. When he uses his Gift of Supreme Gab, he casts a curse on whoever hears it. It is an offer, for a position in the Felt. A position (main) Caliborn first thought of during his dead session. He had Felt for every number, 1-15, but lacked a cue ball. He needed a new member, and with his new powes he knew just the way to do it. With the immortality curse, he bound servants to the role of Snowman, Number 8 in the Felt, a role filled by countless Bitches through the ages. They all share the same general demeanor however, that of the original 8itch to wound English. And though she escaped his grasp, her alt dancestor was not so fortunate. And so, no matter how hard our heroes fought, they could not defeat Condy, not now not ever. For she was trapped, Stuck if you may call it that, forever cursed to serve as English's apprentice til the end of days.

Intermission 2 is English's rampage in the Dreambubbles.
Caliborn describes what happens next. He describes how this 8itch, alone and damaged, fought English head on with her surviving troops, and with the weapon forged from her dead friends, actually managed to win.
Roxy's strike gives John the opportunity to whisk the gang to safety. John decides to execute the plan he came up with alongside Vriska, a plan that could defeat Condy. He warps to Scratch's apartment, using scraps of info Vriska managed to get through the years about English, discovering the voodoo doll. And, well, he pulls out a certain black pin from Die's doll, and everything goes to black due to the clusterfuck of paradoxes.
Caliborn, still spectating, freaks the fuck out.
In the next act, John stumbles into the Land of Stumps and Dismay, and the corpse of the MSPA Reader. He looks at the computer screen. It is black. He plugs in the computer, which reboots the Homestuck video game, allowing him to begin from last save. Before he can, Hussie pops in and yells at John for almost ruining his story, and complains about the mess MSPA Reader made.
In the next intermission, Caliborn returns to monologuing. Jane returns, just when needed, to find Condy, beaten down but still alive. She verbally abuses Condy, beating her down for losing her empire, subjects, and purpose, and chiding her for believing that English could possibly fix any of that for her. Instead she asks Condy to bestow the immortality curse upon her, allowing her to continue the crockercorp legacy. Without anything else to lose, Condy in this moment of weakness allows Jane to take on the curse as Roxy goes in for the kill. Jane, her mortal foe finally defeated, breaks down sobbing in an emotional fit.

Next act.
We get the same sequence of events as in post-Collide.
The heroes go on the platform, but are interrupted by CD, with the big ol mecha doom bot, who promptly kills Dad, which causes John to mentally break from years of repressed feelings. He kills the fuck out of CD, and brings the kids to go kill Caliborn while the trolls gain their Reward. This completes the Caliborn's Masterpiece loop.
Caliborn flashes forward to the aftermath. There is a huge hole in reality, and the kids are all fighting Lord English. Meanwhile, the Alphas are stuck alone on Caliborn's planet... until they're met by the other sprites. We get some exposition on how Dirk's actions split Gamzee's soul into Rage and Mirth, creating the twin personalities we see in Act 6. And though the rage fell into Caliborn's soul, we see half a Gamzee walking (hopping) up to meet the others. Though he cannot talk, he manages to gesture to a doorway leading to the ashes of Caliborn's Denizen, who Jane (now more chill) barely temporarily revives for Dirk to speak to about Aranea/AltCalliope's plans.
Next Act The weapon fired the Beta Kids and a hole in reality, but has one last charge. Roxy uses "muh void" to get the gang off the planet and into the site of the final battle.
>>
>>94615378
What would it entail
>>
>>94615772
The weapon fires. AltCalliope in one grand gesture "flip flops" reality, putting the furthest ring into the center of paradox space and flinging all the other universes and sessions into the wider void. The shattering dreambubbles fall through the tear, being repaired by the many many Maryams. This leaves the Beta kids and English, falling into the void of their collapsing reality. The others are spent out, near death. John has nothing left to fight with. He discharges his sylladex
And fires a cake into Lord English's face, flinging the Lord of Time into the void and leaving just enough time for the kids to get the fuck out.
Without the restrictions of Paradox Space, SBURB and its sessions begin to collapse, leaving the universes as they are. The kids say their farewells to the fading ghosts of their friends, making their peace. Roxy is sad to see Calliope go, but Jane, now curse free yet still fully revived because Plot Bullshit, is able to give up her ring to give to Calliope. They warp out to B2 to the Frog Platform, where the trolls haven't left. Together, they unite to complete the session, claim their reward, and end the story.
Act 7 goes as planned, showing the weapon off, the end of the session, and Caliborn completing the cycle of English.

>>94616463

A greentext I did a bit back when someone was talking about a MILFstuck idea:

>John and Dave get shenaniganed into a world where they are the high-school age kids of mid-30s Jane and Roxy respectively
>Jade and Rose are early/mid-20s women who work at the boys' school as homeroom teacher and nurse.
>The trolls girls are also 20-somethings who work at the school or in nearby offices (the troll boys can be other students at the school or not who cares)
>Also troll girls can be knocked up by humans, don't ask how, it wouldn't be MILFstuck if they couldn't get knocked up
>Dirk and Jake aren't there, but can communicate with John and Dave via pesterchum
>Dirk explains that the only way to shenanigan their way back to the main timeline/world is for the two of them tocombine to fuck and knock up all the older versions of their friends, including both their moms.
>JOHN: wait, would that even work?
>DIRK: Sure, maybe, I dunno.
>DIRK: But if it doesn't you'll be living in a universe constantly nailing impossibly hot older women, so forgive me if I don't feel bad for you.

I'm not TOO worried about the pitfall of 3D VN, my modelfu has improved to that point and there's a positive enough response on that front. I'd be more worried since I'm vanilla as fuck and would probably keep it that way. I'd say people would be more in it for Dave and Dirk talking about that one Nic Cage movie where he wakes up and suddenly is married and cutesy interactions than anything else.

Dave-Jade, John is the threesome route, Jake the femdom route, Karkat's endurance mode where you have to get every troll pregnant like that old AU. Dirk is mission control because the only thing he's more afraid of than vaginas are babies, which fundamentally terrify him.
>>
>>94616653
It'd be better for him than being a fuckboy to everyone when he was alive
>>
>>94616333
Yeah, there's some stuff that doesn't make sense (like what the fuck pulling out Sn0wman's pin accomplished). As well as some stuff I don't like (like a Muse, the most passive class, being able to do something so dramatic as flip flop all of paradox space). It also still leaves Jade's arc unresolved. But overall this would have been an acceptable ending to Homestuck. I particularly liked LE being the cause of Karkat's mutation and there being multiple Sn0wmans, all cursed with immortality.

8/10 would ride the hype train for.

I really dig the Dirk as mission control because oh god babies idea. Pairings seem fine, though Karkat being the only one with the troll girls...eh. Kinda why I went for just John and Dave as the PCs, but whatever works.

It's Karkat to justify why he can knock them up. Also because the only other choice would be Equius. And while Equius' mighty noble stallion genes filling up his beautiful busty rustblooded Aradia is quite l00d, it'd be hard to justify why the rest of the cast would fuck him. Especially Nepeta.

A lot of this was stitched together from some of my fantheories going into A66I4. Sn0wman's pin was just a cool idea I wanted to see happen, though it really didn't do anything but show John that he couldn't just fuck around with reality, and have a nice little "main character meets his maker" scene. Also I have no fucking clue how to fix Jade's arc considering the time we had left in the act. I tried to do what I did for Karkat and make the ending to her arc her coming to terms with how she doesn't need to be important to be worth something, but honestly she really isn't too important in the grand scheme of things, not without derailing to plot way off the canon course. Jake is in the same boat really.
>>
>>94616653
Aw shit, I intended Karkat to go with the trolls to the new session but halfway I realized there wasn't a Jasprose to teleport them to thr final battle. Eh whatever, he was a weenie anyways.

Give her a rage against the heaven scenes.

If I were so inclined I actually would have done the opposite. While Jade is going around fixing the session and repairing the damage done in GO and afterwords, she's sending a message to a groupchat formed for the Beta Kids, reminiscing on the good ol' days before Cascade, and how they all used to be such good friends. And she remarks how unfair it is, that Dave had to get beaten up by Bro, and how Rose had to live with an alcoholic, and how John never had a good relationship with his father, and how she grew up all alone on an island. And she remarks how shitty it is that she was alone for so long, and how she couldn't day goodbye to Davesprite, and how she feels like a ticking timebomb for her friends. But she continues anyways, because ultimately she feels like AltCalliope is wrong, and that the world is worth saving, even if SBURB sucks dicks, and how she wants to do everything she can to keep the people she loves safe, because that's all anyone can do. Something uplifting, that affirms that at the end of the day Jade is still an unrealistically upbeat flower girl way over her head.

If this was combined with Jade and Jake finally having some goddamn time to spend together I'd be okay with it. Those two were shit on separately by the narrative for what feels like no good reason and they used to keep in contact by letters. It feels like they were purposefully kept apart because Jade would be good for Jake and visa versa.
>>
>>94618166
I suppose that is true. All the Prospit kids have serious emotional repression issues. Jake got his in Act 6 Act 5 X2 Combo, the rewrite gives Jane hers, John gets his in the Credits/rewrite, that leaves Jade. Maybe that comes for her in the form of AltCalliope, maybe that's their convo. Her screaming at AltCalliope for answers/validation and AltCalliope continuing to be shady and mysterious and all "muh rick and morty nihilism lel" because she secretly can't actually handle being around real people.

Yet post retcon the entirety of it is spent with characters outright harassing him, and none of his friends do anything. And of course, Jade is asleep so can't see anyone harassing him.

This is WAY more what I want to see from a Homestuck "fix". Fixing the massive character fuckups and perpetual fear of characters finishing their development and getting back to the core theme of a close group of four friends surviving the end of the world..

Like if Jade's little not quite a breakdown over the group chat is what encourages the betas to repair their friendship that'd be fucking ideal. Way more important than "what is dropped plot hook number seven" doing.

You mean you didn't get disappointed when Tavros went through all that trouble of rounding up the ghost army just to give the rails to Meenah in the most pathetic way possible, and did nothing but add to the lines and die like offscreen like a chump?

Not TOO much. Only a little. I didn't find it so pathetic, since I read it as Tavros making friends with Meenah by appealing to her inflated sense of self on purpose. It's not like he was awed by her natural superiority as a highblood and compelled to submit, the little shit kept a huge grin on his face the whole way.
Also the fact he managed to accomplish something relatively significant and relevant to the plot is more than I could have dreamed of, and better than 90% of the cast got. I'll take it.

I left a lot of the character developmenty stuff intentionally vague, mainly to save time and secondarily because everyone has their own opinions on what that would look like.
>>
>>94619144
That's because he doesn't really have fans. After DirkJake he stopped being the obligatory shipbait, but Jake isn't too interesting on his own either. John is the actual protag, Jade got lipservice because she has some dedicated fans, but Jake and Jane were always just there because Meme Numbers to round out the Alpha Kids, so they never really got any help.

>>94598242
Because though Homestuck the story technically begins in 09, the story is way more at home with early-mid 2000s culture, from shitty white boy rap to IM social circles. And when it comes to childhood elements it is even more at home with 90's culture, aka shit Hussie probably would have remembered when he was a kid.

DDOTA kind of sucks. Just straight up, it's not particularly good. Some of the plot ideas are really interesting, it just really lacks Homestuck's unpredictability and charm (obviously). I actually like Act Omega, it plays around with more interesting concepts and ideas personally, even if it sometimes feels a little too fanservicey.
>>
>>94625134
i remember them having Jane Solo the Cody because the writer was basically on Jane's dick for being shafted in canon. Like seriously, She had a small rant about the who John hugging her dad which devolved in to "bluh bluh bluh of course this male character would get developed and not the female characters."

but yeah that was where i dropped DDotA. I'm also not really reading Omegastuck anymore. though i did like what they did with Callie.

Where and how did Homestuck go wrong?

I must've reread it twice, but I still can't identify the exact point of falling apart. My best guess is when Calliope showed up.

Can anyone explain the last parts of it in detail and the story of how Homestuck crashed and burned in the end?

It declines after cascade, but in the final part which is i guess the beta kids come in, is when it really goes to shit.

Kanaya had always been a lesbian though and then Gamzee had a line of dialog wanting to fuck Tavros, who didn't seem interested.

Before the days of political correctness gone mad it was perfectly acceptable to make your only gay male character a mass murdering lunatic. I always wonder why Gamzee's characterization became so fucked up despite this?

>>
>>94625503
It's not an easy answer. The comic obviously never hits the highs of Act 5 Act 2 after Cascade, but it was a process. There were many points the comic could have been salvaged, but Hussie made every wrong decision.

From introducing 12 more trolls in the Dancestors Intermission (and beginning the Kickstarter), to Trickster Mode (and CAUCASIAN), there were warning signs way back. And of course the Megapause.
Beyond that, the first bit of A66 heavily dragged, with a lot of pointless bullshit happening. Then you have the mother fucking Gigapause, Game Over, and it was around the Retcon Arc that the comic genuinely began to hit "irredeemable" tier, specifically with Vriskagram.

But honestly I think /hsg/ always thought Homestuck could be redeemed right up til Act 7 dropped and the realization hit.
>>
>>94625886
this might be the reason, i mean sure we had the Johnkat conversation. but that was onesided, Gamtav was also onesided and there was more focus on JohnVris, the whole Dave, Terezi, Karkat, Jade shipping triangle, Rosemary was alright if it didn't get shafted in the end, and DirkJake could have been the one really good gay ship if there was some dedication in the end of it, even if it is ship bait or something like that, gay guys still resonated with that ship more the Davekat.
>>
>>94626039
Why did Hussie feel the need to insert a mary sue, embodiment of all goodness, who everyone loves, who praises him at every given opportunity and say she's "likable" and makes her the most important character?

And then introduce the much more likable Caliborn who is meant to be hated, acts like a jerk, constantly hates everything, is autistic, and is the embodiment if all evil and Hussie's haters and make him a villain?

Does Hussie have low self esteem or something?
>>
>>94625886
Imo Rosemary was endgame ever since Kanaya was introduced. Don't get me wrong Johnrose and Dersecest were based but Hussie always knew that he wanted his catty lesbians. But, like a cat, once Hussie caught his prey he had no real idea of what to do with it.

I never understood how they wound up back together when both Dirk and Jake realized they weren't right for each other and were being mutually abusive.

I guess "off screen couple's counseling" is the in universe reason but it just feels like fujoshit bait.
>>
>>94626460
Logically speaking, he should have made them canon after shipteasing them for all of A5A2. But Andrew cannot write genuine earnest romance for his life, so he probably shouldn't have.
>>
>>94626417
But Hussie's self insert spent his time telling Caliborn he was a prick and then he had to go and turn Caliborn into your average redditor after he was quickly becoming the fan favorite.

He even mocked the fandom with shitty fanart based on real fanart.
>>
>>94626462
But only Dirk realized that he was mutually abusive.

>>
>>94617655
True, I also have no idea how to end Jade's arc. I'm not entirely sure she even had one in the first place. Jake's arc is totally doable though. Have someone like John or Jade or hell even Dave give him a pep talk so he can stop beating himself up about his mistakes. Then put him in a situation where he has to face some threat alone with no backup and have him rise to the occasion using his own skills and traits to do something amazing, like Tavros did.
>>
>>94626521
All the more reason to keep them apart.

Jake is such an idiot he hurts everyone in his stupidity and I don't actually think Jake ever actually realizes he's an idiot, does he? I can't remember if Jake underwent any character development or not actually.

It's pretty stupid to make him gay anyway after giving him the blue lady fetish as a running gag.

I think andrew has stated that calliope was representative of "good fans" and caliborn, "bad fans"

Caliborn loved puzzle shit, world building and hated every other character in the comic

>I'm not entirely sure she even had one in the first place.

Jade's arc was the fact that she started off the most powerful character and entered the game the weakest one, and had a lot of deep seated anger issues that she ignored in favor of more important things, because she felt that emotional stuff got in the way of getting shit done. This kept piling up on her, and when she went grimbark she held out a personal vendetta for Dave after Davesprite broke up with her rather than dealing with it directly, and even as she kept getting awful things happening to her she refused to really deal with it.
Basically she needed to sit down and have a good long scream.

Jade's character was always kind of a parody of a mary sue. She has access to all kinds of powers and knowledge, but the universe conspires against her and she can never use it all properly.

Right, and that's the point. Jade gets sidelined or ignored or else shafted and she's like "no its okay really it needs to be done :)".
The one scene at the end of the comic where she says fuck it and she's not sleeping anymore and goes to hit on Dave is in spirit what should have happened even if it was crap. Just like John, she needed to basically grow a spine and stand up for herself, albeit against the universe more than anyone else.

I guess my issue is that that's not really an arc, that's just character depth. We first meet Jade as a happy go lucky flower girl and then over time we learn that she actually has some anger issues and represses her problems because she doesn't think that dealing with her own emotions is important. That's good conflict and a great foundation for a character arc but it is not in itself an arc because there is no change, Jade was always like that, we just never saw it until then.

The only time I think Jade's character ever actually changed was when she decided to stop blindly following Skaia's instructions and take matters into her own hands, and that was back in Act 5 Act 2. She doesn't really develop as a character after that.
