I've been around here before. Several times, but I forgot my old user name and password and stuff, so I'm just using a new profile. So I guess I'm back??? I doubt any of you remember me, but I sure remember you... I guess.
Anyways. I do have a question for the community, as I have changed greatly. I must know.
How is Homestuck viewed on here?
Hello and welcome back to the valorous kingdom of CYS!
I've never seen it mentioned on here or anybody show a particular like or dislike towards it, so I'd have to guess the website is mostly neutral towards this piece of media.
And that's good. I can freely be my trashy self.
Since they banned freeform, creative freedom is a bit less...
Well, It's not like I'm gonna write smut or anything.
Since they banned roleplaying entirely, creative freedom has been a bit more...
focused towards the entire purpose of this website: storygames!
Welcome back I suppose though I do not remember your other account. I suggest you'd want to change your profile's text if you want to make a good first impression.
Maybe this one? The account has homestruck as a storygame, and it's excessively crappy.
Lol, no. That just looked like crap. But, I am making a Homestuck game with @Taylor_Boulet
Oh. Yeah. We are.
Well, there's a few problems with your story.
1. It's Homestruck.
2. It's co-authored...
3. ...with a retard.
Unfortunately, those three reasons mean they'll never be a game worth playing of this.
Probably. I agree with you whole heartedly. It is trash. I am trash. It only makes sense to continue it.
*blank face. the face of one who gives zero fucks about life*
Well that escalated quickly.
Escalation. I love it. It's the same thing my head does when I'm high. Like Lesser Dog from Undertale or something.
Homestuck is... Eh, it's okay. The visuals are nice, and the music/gameplay/whatever is a nice touch. Everything is too matter-of-fact and instantly trippy that after a certain point the next layer of surreality he lays on, and the next one, and the one after that, all end up feeling sort of samey and increasingly dull, until the "Magic" of the setting was lost, and I could really read it for the jokes, the puzzles, and the desert hobo section of the story. I guess as long as it's not the only thing you talk about, it should be fine, though I am pretty curious as to what it's awakened in Mizal.
Oh wait, no, if that's gonna be your voice and typing style, then we will have problems. I forgot about that part. Goddamned fandoms mrfhrmlsnrff...
I never really pinned Mizal as one to have read Homestuck...
As for that 'magic', I agree. It takes a true fan to complete the entire, shit webcomic. Even then, there's still so much more to learn. God, It's horrible. But also amazing. I hate it and I love it. I love how you called the exiles 'desert hobos'. Beautiful. There's legitimately a tear of joy rolling down my cheek. I mainly enjoyed Act 5 with the Trolls, but that didn't last long, sadly.
I just realized just exactly how trashy I am. Who the fuck reads Homestuck 5 times in a row?
Homestuck? More like 'Hoestuck'.
No. That's not how trash or sucking works. There's a difference between liking things ironically and just insecurely insulting things that you like just so that other people can't immediately criticize you without saying things you've already said. Homestuck is good, it's interesting, and some legitimately good choices are made, that's why people like it. Of course it has its flaws, but the fact that it does have flaws, contrary to the binary notions of goodness and badness on the internet, you can enjoy something and believe it's good while still acknowledging things that are wrong with it.
It's corrupted me. And I fucking love it. But, in all honesty, I'm getting sick of it. I want to finish this storygame and be done with it for a little while.
Besides dear, sweet Nepeta. I can always have time for dear, sweet sweet Nepeta. :3
notions of goodness and badness on the internet, does not mean it's bad.*
I tried reading Homestuck some years ago. It was...okay, at first, but then it just dragged on. And on. And I didn't find it very funny, and new characters kept crawling out of the woodwork, each with their own unique style of annoying chatroom jargon.
Now, Problem Sleuth, that was a webcomic which I could keep reading. Drawn by the same author, fiendishly clever and entertaining throughout, and much more to my preference. I wish it got more attention than Homestuck, really.
Yeah, Problem Sleuth was rather enjoyable. I loved how John was obsessed with it in the beginning of Homestuck. I really do enjoy it when authors add their creations into other creations. Like the immediate Undertale reference at the end of Act 6 of Homestuck.
Fucking kill myself, mate.
Oh, yeah, Problem Sleuth was spectacular. (And, unlike Homestuck, had actual good pacing with its whole game/universe rules gimmick. It's the first comic I read from start to finish on the internet. Not the first one I read, actually. That was 1/0, but 1/0 kind of petered out for me when I reached the late 800s.
Well, my friend made me read it. As for a badge of honor... is there one? But yeah. Trash. Garbage. Me. They're all the same.
Also, Homestuck apparently isn't over, because Hussie is going to seemingly add something else to it. Why he may? I don't know.
And for the original idea of Homestuck (To simply finish the SBURB game), this is exactly what I'm doing for my story game with Taylor. It's simply the actual game of SBURB. No dimensional crap. No time shenanigans.
And as much as I hate to say it, no Trolls.
I don't get the deal with the trolls. Is it just the concept of Cthulhus trolling people through time and space? I thought the whole Felt/Midnight Crew shenanigans were infinitely better in that regard and more creative. If this whole process wasn't slowly depleting the man's soul, I'd have liked to see more of that mobster rivalry instead of adding gaming abstracts to gaming abstracts to time loops to gaming abstracts to silly words from the 1800s to gaming abstracts to time loops, but I suppose Problem Sleuth was long enough to never need a sequel ever. And I mean that sincerely.
Wait a second, as it was created created? Was the community engaged in stuff? Were people actually, like, choosing the choices back then? On the one hand, if he doesn't he does an uncannily good job of imitating the nonchalant not-give-a-fuckness and the ability to take short breaks to randomly mess around with inane joke choices and funny GM-Chastisement, which really creates the feeling that players were suggesting all this.
At the same time, I don't think it's quite random enough (He always manages to get the in-joke choices at the beginning in, makes obscure puzzles seemingly happen on the first go, it always seems to be going somewhere despite ending nowhere, etc.) that I'm not convinced he didn't take the helm at some points. I've never actually touched the forums, because tbh everything I've clicked on MSPaint adventures other than the links is an entirely different Webcomic structure than I'm used to and therefore it is entirely unusable for anyone with my attention span.
