Default Re: Officially Homestuck

I just want to drop in and clarify that my method with reading MSPA is to ignore it for a month or more - really just as long as I can ignore it until I feel it's been a while and , then catch up on everything at once. It's just my preference, since I feel it reads better as an ongoing story rather than in having a new page once every couple of days or however often he updates.

In other words, I'm really glad I've got other people who also love this shit on ZP, but I would be really grateful if you'd be careful about putting epic artwork or surprising new plot twists in your avatars and signatures. Not that anyone has been showing off anything that seems to be in any way compromising, I just wanted to explain myself.

You know, Homestuck is cool and I enjoy reading it and all, but I feel like it just is too ****ing arbitrarily complicated in a way that doesn't add a whole lot of meaningful effect.

And this is probably gonna be seen as blasphemy but quite frankly Problem Sleuth was better.

It's probably something that will make a lot more dramatically interesting sense when you can read it again after knowing everything. Problem Sleuth may have introduced less at any one time, but it was a lot like this as well.

AH has done this on purpose, obviously. Like PS, Homestuck is a parody of convoluted and needlessly extravagant stories and video games

And it is as brilliant in its parody as it is in its convolution

Yeah, but that's the thing, it was an obvious parody in PS. In HS it almost feels like he's being serious about it.

Because he is. He is being completely serious in a non-serious way

Basically he's just writing what he wants, whatever weird slurry his mind produces. And, frankly, it's genius in every way possible

The LAYERS, man

the layers!

Yeah, except it's not. A story you have to recap and reexplain several times halfway through is a crappy story in my opinion. If you're TRYING to be ridiculous then it works but now that he's being serious about it, it kinda just goes too far with itself.

I sometimes can't keep up with all the nuances of his stories but the thing that really amazes and impresses me is that it all connects somehow in the end. Even insignificant things. I don't have that kind of mental capacity as a writer, tbh. Andrew Hussie, Iwantcherbebbiz.

Yes, I can agree with that.

EDIT: And I never said I didn't LIKE Homestuck. I just think PS was tons better and Homestuck because it takes some of this shit too far.

Homestuck -- Read from the beginning!

Archive -- Read from a random point!

Oodles of Moosic -- Listen and weep tears of pure mixed emotion!

A Sample of Homestuck Awesome -- AKA the first real moment I realized how addicted I was.

Problem Sleuth -- For those who can't figure out why Homestuck is what it is!

Bard Quest -- Codpiece.

Jailbreak -- The original!
