it felt right that the comics were hosted on such a terribly designed site
maybe i'm just not finding it, but i'm not seeing anywhere with a "most recent page" link, not any like rss feed so i can check on upd8s. am i just missing something?
you're not, I think they deleted that completely, which SUCKS
like a link to the epilogues? if you go to homestuck.com there’s a large image that says “read the homestuck epilogues” with a clickable link that will take you there, on both mobile and pc
if that doesn't work for some reason, try https://www.homestuck.com/epilogues
ETA: i think i misunderstood, my b!
it was always so exciting (and convenient) to go to the homepage and see there were pages you hadnt read yet.
that being said, i am liking the epilogue so far. it's sad in a way that 500% my jam.
so we've got a countdown to polyswap here: https://www.timeanddate.com/countdown/to?iso=20190421T12&p0=250&msg=Polyswap+2019&font=cursive
and also an interest check for hiveswap and friendsim poly exchanges here: https://forms.gle/T6VcPGzQBZR6ShQu9
y'all it is RAPIDLY becoming summer exchange season and I am So Hype
so i was working on easter stuff for my johndave server and we'd been talking about rabbit!john. like. literal rabbit john. and how he'd absolutely be a lil shit. and thus, this was born. happy early egg day.

Spoiler: Epilogue's out!
i've made jokes before that detective pony was the true ending all along, but i didn't actually expect it to happen
Oh hey there's a livestream of the epilogue with some of the nin hussie writers on it
I started with meat first because I'm lefthanded. This is the best way to decide anything. Not through it yet. But I am getting through it.
I just realized that given the whole Jane is a fascist thing one of my favorite characters is now a cursed fav to have. God dammit.
i woke up when the epilogues hit and then spent 8 straight hours reading instead of getting anything else in my day done, whoops. interesting read! i'm still gonna be doing things exactly the way i've been doing them fandomwise, but interesting read. ovo
Spoiler: meat side
I'm still not through the epilogue, but I'm really not digging the 'jane is a fascist with trump parallels' development.
But I think Hussie has been massively unkind to Jane and Jake for honestly not great reasons in the past.
started with meat, now i'm on candy, and
Spoiler: candy #18, nsfw
is jade more or less saying she has a dog dick now courtesy of bec
or... just a regular dick??
honestly with how much the word "betas" gets dropped i'm just waiting for the inevitable A/B/O conclusion
I really wish I weren’t busy all weekend, I haven’t even started
Spoiler: Epilogues; candy then meat
I have a lot of hurt feelings
Which is not to say I didn't enjoy them! Holy fuck this blew me away.
But the whole
Spoiler: meat specific
Dirk being toxic masculine gaslighting abusive narcissistic god
thing has me with a bit of a heavy heart. It's like everything horrible that might have been dismissed or seen as redeemed was just. Nah dude, Dirk Strider in all iterations is pretty insufferable and shitty. Am so conflicted bc God I love him as a character so much but the last scene with Jake and Dirk just--
Spoiler: meat specific
how DARE you, after brainwashing and mind controlling and persuading and hurting people so badly and being so selfish how DARE you be so.tender with Jake. How fucking dare you say that HE won't break YOUR heart again you absolute piece of shit
Spoiler: Nonspecific epilogues related
I love all my Striders. But my heart is just a teensy bit broken :(
ETA: fixed my spoilers YIKES MY BAD
i think you have your spoiler titles mixed up? by which i mean, the things you have written as "Candy specific" are actually Meat specific?
anyways... i read meat first, then candy
Spoiler: epilogues spoilers
i don't actually know that i have a lot to say at this point. guess i'm still thinking about it?
though i gotta say. if i decide to reread this at any point in the future. i will probably just read meat. and probably just chuck candy out the window for the most part. i was pretty surprised to learn that meat and candy are about the same length (95k words) because candy seemed like it went on for forever.
so in retrospect. there was a lot that i liked about meat. and liked more in retrospect, after reading candy. maybe it would have been a better first-read experience for me if i had read candy first, gotten that out of the way, then read meat.
anyways . i'm kind of torn, because there was some stuff i liked, and there are some interesting questions and elements that might be worth thinking about, but i also can't help but think
no seriously this is me being a serious wet blanket here, feel free to ignore
i can't help but think that maybe spending ANY more time thinking about this would be a profound waste of time
i'm crying over this horseshit and i can't even articulate why i'm so upset when there are things i did like and thought were interesting maybe
but i just miss when it was john and karkat and their friends trying to play a game
Yeah V from homestuck recommended reading Candy then Meat which I have done
Still reading Meat tho
Something was here. It is not now. Splitting quarantining being done. Prevention? One of those.
