I guess it was only a mater of time.

I was hoping to put this off until the big update happened but it looks like Hussie is backing down from that so I guess this is fine. Hussie barely worked on it during the gigapause so I'm expecting this to go on for yet another year.

I'm just so tired. This thing had better be worth it.
I stopped caring about Homestuck a long while ago.
By the time the beta kids enter the game I just got tired of the incredibly unnecessary clusterfuck the webcomic has become.
It's fandom didn't helped either, but that's beside the point.

Clearly you're just not cool enough to recognize true media-negativity when you see it. I have mastered the art of hating things to such a degree that you are unable to perceive it as anything but a put-on, because your own ability to hate is so pedestrian and watered-down in comparison. Come back when you get on my level and truly understand what it is to hate a webcomic. On that day you may finally be worthy of being considered cool.

Well, no, I take that back. You will finally be worthy of being considered less uncool. Coolness will still be beyond your reach for a good long while yet, and it is cruel of me to get your hopes up that it's as short a journey as all that. But you must take baby steps if you are ever to climb that mountain. Go, young Anon, and learn to hate all the world's creative output.

Everyone is just bitter about the Gigapause. And honestly, I can't blame them. I even gave it to despair and accepted that Homestuck wasn't going to update for YEARS.

I'm ecstatic due to the Rapture announcement came on the same day as the Korra Book 4 Trailer.

John was passive
Rose rebelled

Dave actively abused the system
Jade passively played the system

So now that John has literal game breaking powers do you think we're going to eventually see some turn around? Because he is still for the most part doing the same thing he's always done, i.e. wandering from one event to the next with a clue of what's going on.

Keep in mind that this is all ignoring the fact that when he changed it, it wasn't because of the cries of racism, but because of the realization that the joke was one that only worked in the moment it was made, and that archive viewers who weren't part of the fandom at the time it was made would have had no interpretation to make that would have made it even make sense.

...I don't know. Right now, Caliborn sees himself as untouchable. There's no REASON for him to create a more powerful version of himself, in the form of Lord English, right now. His self-insert fanfiction is enough at the moment. Having a humiliating loss at the hands of a huge dork would be a great impetus for him to do so.

But then again, we have reason to believe that Jake will be the one to give him his "first defeat." Unless that was Lord English's first defeat, rather than Caliborn's.

Either way, I wouldn't consider it impossible that John wins this fight. There is support for either outcome right now. I am certain it won't be the last we hear from Caliborn even if John wins. And I am FAIRLY certain (but not completely certain) it won't be the end of John's involvement in the story if he loses, either.

John is kind of un-killable in a sense at this point. Aside from his god tier shenanigans, there's probably a shit ton of Johns with the same space powers, hopping from time line to time line.

As far as this fight goes, I wouldn't be surprised if John wins or loses this fight. It's setting up for him to lose, since he is John after all and Caliborn is simply the strongest character.

But both John and Caliborn are acting like idiots, I'm betting the most on a humorous resolution or John getting zapped away before something happens. I mean the whole tone of the event is completely silly.

But then again, in Homestuck that means nothing. This is a comic where death is heralded not by rousing final words and a dramatic death rattle, but the word "dead" in big, silly letters and goofy expressions on the characters' faces.

I agree that it could go either way though.

I think some neat opportunities could arise is Caliborn doesn't kill John. Like John could get some scars and disfigurations mirroring Caliborn's.

I kind of bring that up because I feel as if John is getting played as some kind of bizarro-Lord English. John has some of his powers already. But adding to that John is already goofing off in the meta of the comic, like LE. Both characters aren't tied to either particular continuity now.

Additionally, Lord English is a huge fucking man child, looking at John, he's seems to be the most normal human kid, he doesn't really have the personal issues the others have, one could argue he's the most mature of the kids. And assuming the growing up theme of homestuck still has merit, it could be important to John to be mature, especially compared to the one guy in the comic how was never able to grow up.

It's all theory on my part, but John could potentially be a more benevolent analogue to English

Assuming John doesn't retcon it all, or this doesn't turn out to be a Doomed Timeline? (which I think would be a huge cop-out in either case)?
* Someone spills blood on Kanaya's ashes and she comes back to life, is pissed off. ( Classic vampire lore for vampires that are dusted, so reasonably possible )
* Karkat's Blood Powers awaken and he does some sort of bullshit to survive his fall into the lava. Possibly this ties into ressurecting Kanaya. ( I honestly have no reason to believe this other than that I want to )
* Davesprite becomes Alpha Dave ( I think this one is almost a no-brainer)
* Rose and Terezi survive. Terezi probably has a permanent scar or injury. ( I doubt they would have survived the Flash if they were going to die in the next update )
* Dave, Jane, and Jake join Jade on Team Calliope, or possibly some of them join Team Vriska. (Another no-brainer)

It certainly looks that way. But we also know that Hussie is unaware of a single timeline in which Gamzee dies. So if he *is* dead, that means we're in territory uncharted by the author. Or the fictitious counterpart of the real-world author who in-universe is responsible for the story being told.

RING OF LIFE: Presently Unclaimed

Also, it has just occurred to me: if the Condesce really does have Meenah's Thief of Life powers, and decides she still needs any of the heroes who just died alive, we may have options. Hell, if nothing else, she could claim the Ring, put it on Jane's corpse, and then have Jane bring everyone she wants alive back to life.

Except Karkat. He can't be revived by Jane.

Aranea isn't confirmed dead.
The Condense could kill her, but once she steals the life ring (and as the thief of life of course she will) she could easily just browbeat Aranea into being another one of her pawns to make up for getting in the way of her plans. Condy's Dancestor being friends with our interloping book lover might mean she'll be seen as familiar somehow. It's been a long time since she's seen a friendly troll face anyway, what with running Earth for LE.

Kind of hard to revive someone when you don't have anything like an intact body anyway. What would she aim her trident at, the general area he fell into the lava?
Speaking of which, I don't see her bringing Kanaya back too easily for the same reason.

Makes perfect sense to me. Homestuck has been fairly consistent in the characterization of the idea that there aren't good and evil people, just people who decide to do good and people who decide to do evil. The Condesce has flipped off Jade's and Jane's social inhibitions, and forced their loyalty, but both of them are making decisions for themselves. Jade's whole feels jam with Dave about Davesprite made it clear that Jade was still the one at the helm.

John needs to retcon everything because it's been foreshadowed that he would eventually do so and fuck everything up in the process. Check this shit out:
http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=008263

>JOHN: i can't seem to control the jumps.
>JOHN: maybe that's for the best though.
>JOHN: if i could control it, and tried to use it to my advantage, i would probably just make a huge mess of things.
>TEREZI: Y3S, YOU WOULD

See, that's Terezi being fully aware of how John's mind works as per her Seer status, stating for the record that John would eventually fuck things up if he got control of the jumps. We already know that he gets control of the jumps because future John came back and talked to John and told him to find Roxy, and that was not a John that our John has become yet. So John has to intentionally perform a Retjohn that will in the process fuck things up. That requires a pretty big reason for him to Retjohn everything--which this has provided.

So yes, a Retjohn coming is inevitable. But I do not think it is going to be a solution. I think it is going to get them in even deeper water here than they already are.

Are they though? Death is a slap on the wrist in the Homestuck universe. All those dead people, right now, could go join Calliope's ghost army for whatever it is she is about to do--clearly the story is setting her up for something. And Jade alone might well not be enough. Or, the Condesce grabs the Life ring, puts it on Jane's finger, and she brings everyone but Karkat back to life. And Karkat joins Meenah's army like he already agreed to.

Meanwhile, we have no idea what a Retjohn is going to accomplish. It might lead to the very thing that results in Caliborn being able to become Lord English in the first place. Or it might close the door on one of the options they had about how to defeat Lord English forcing them to go through a MUCH more painful/arduous process for it.

Or the biggest issue facing us: Aranea was trying to create a doomed timeline. What if she succeeded, and Retjohning it is what turns this current timeline INTO the Alpha Timeline?

It doesn't. That is the conjecture part. She is clearly about to do something--I think that part is uncontroversial. The fact that Jade has joined her there suggests it is something she cannot do alone, unless all she needs is moral support. All these deaths need to have happened for a reason, and we know of a dead girl who is about to do shit, so I am conjecturing that whatever she is about to do may very well require a party of adventurers.

I doubt it's going to be that simple. More likely, THE CHOICE will be Typheus laying out a series of events for John, one where he survives and one where he doesn't, and the one where he survives is the one where all his friends stay dead. And John, being who he is, doesn't even think about it.

The impression I've gotten from past references to THE CHOICE suggest that players who actually make it and die because of it often *don't* die at their Denizen's hands. Like for example there was a strong suggestion that when Hephaestus gave Davesprite the Choice, Davesprite could have chosen to have Hephaestus fix him instead of the sword. And Davesprite decided against it. Theoretically this should have mean Davesprite would die because of his decision, and maybe he still will, but he wouldn't have been killed by Hephaestus per se in that scenario.

I suspect we'll see the same thing with John.

That could happen with every denizen, though, and is possibly something that rarely causes deaths in alpha timelines due to the choice being a defining aspect of it.

After the number of times I've wanted Homestuck to hurry up and get on with itself, it's a weird feeling to want a scene to last longer than it does. I don't care about shipping at all and I've never really been invested in the romantic side of Homestuck at all, but something about Roxy's and John's interactions just feels nice to read.

And yeah, I'm getting strong backfire vibes from this plan. I wonder if this is gonna be how the ring ended up in the dream bubbles with Huss in the first place. That hasn't been explained yet, right?

Someone on /co/ mentioned that it might be because that John and Roxy are just two friendly and genuine people talking to each other. There's no passive-aggressive jabs or withheld information, or sarcasm. It's two people who enjoy each other's company talking.
Being the only two people alive after Game Over may also have something to do with it.

Speaking of which. I wonder what the full extent of the Denizen's "feel our loss" thing is.

Roxy is unstuck from Canon at the moment, but not in the same way that John is. Eventually, she will go back to being canon. She's taking a roundabout way to get there, but our Roxy will presumably join the timeline that will become Alpha eventually, thus becoming the new Alpha Roxy. But if that happened BEFORE the event we saw in Jane's memories, it could still be our Roxy.

I think most likely it is not our Roxy that we just watched die, but it's not a 100% chance that it wasn't.

I'm digging these updates. Shooting all over the different events that have happened in the comic reminds me of that part in Earthbound, and other old RPG games, where you revisit each area you've been to just before the final stretch. It's really nice to see that side of Homestuck's inspiration come into the fold again.

I wonder how you ever got into Homestuck in the first place, since you clearly don't get the point of the whole thing if you're whining about that. Homestuck is about fucking with the rules of narrative. It was an expansion of the concepts explored in Wizardy Herbert. To fully explore that, John's powers were central, and exploring the full ramifications of those powers means something major like the revival of a character who was established very strongly early on to be one of the characters with the most potential to turn things around in her favor.

Like I would get it if you just don't like Homestuck. That's fine. But this is exactly the same story you've been reading since the beginning.
