You do realise that we’ve figured out the new kids titles and aspects already from their intros? Oh wait you hide in the forums and watch us talk don’t you?
I expect people to figure out stuff like this. The key words are in plain sight. That is why I put stuff like that there, so people can figure some things out and feel cool.
What is your take on Owen Wilson?
My take is…
Hm. This question is like a zen koan. In attempting to answer, my head has been purged of all thought.
I just don’t know what to say.
Why don’t all the God Tiers on the meteor fight Jack now? They could probably win, right?
Could they? Maaaybe??
Isn’t it a better strategy to do what Rose said? To regroup and confront him from a stronger strategic position.
Sure, they may be able to put up a good fight. But if you have the chance to get reinforcements, and potentially use overwhelming force, why not?
They know John and Jade are going to meet them there. Jade especially sure did look like she could do some fancy stuff.
Do the names of the members of the Midnight Crew have any relevance to the Trolls’ romance quadrants?
Not really. But the characters have been associated with their corresponding quadrants a few times. Like Hearts Boxcars urging Tavros to kiss the girl, or Spades Slick getting all black romantic with Snowman. That’s as far as the correlation goes.
Is there anything as a fanbase we could do to disturb you? because we’ve been trying our best and so far nothing has seemed to phase you.
There are a few times I’ve said “Ok, if the fandom does THIS, that will be the last straw. Gonna pack up my bags and close up shop. Nice knowing you internet!” But mostly as a joke and only muttered to myself, because if I said it out loud that’s exactly what people would do. They’d say, SHIT! WHY DIDN’T WEEEE THINK OF THAT.
Why don’t you rename Dirk to Dion?
I guess Dion was another option, but there’s no fancy explanation why I didn’t use it. It’s just filed under not so great.
Really, I picked all four of these post-scratch names way way way a long time ago. More than a year I’m sure.
Is that Ben Stiller poster in Dirk’s room there ironically? Or did they just not have enough Kamina posters at the store?
The small square Stiller, Wilson and Snoop posters are in Dave’s room too, in the exact same spots. When I made his room, I just used the Dave room file as a base, and left those ones exactly where they were for the hell of it.
How many designs for the Alpha kids did you go through before settling on what you did? Thank you for writing the comic!
Exactly one. Which is true of practically every character.
Although, I did bat around the idea of giving Dirk a wifebeater like Equius. But it didn’t work very well with the hat icon.
P.S. I’m going on record with the position that a hat is the perfect thing to be on a shirt, forever.
Who is the most retarded character of homestuck?
This new character I will introduce really soon. His name is Guyisart!
SOMEBODY RUSH THIS GUY TO THE BURN WARD, WHOOPS HE JUST INCINERATED, TOO LATE!
Did you on purposely make the endings of Rose and Roxy’s name = Sexy ? And if you did, why xD ?
No, that would be a pretty hard thing to do on purpose, while ALSO ensuring good names were selected.
But as for why I did it, which I didn’t, well……
In case you haven’t noticed these two young ladies are getting older at a PRETTY BRISK CLIP and before you know it
Hang on I’m gonna stop answering this completely.
Does uranianUmbra have anything to do with the original 12 trolls or the ancestors?
Did you consider Ruby for mom?
What do you think of all the different theories on various aspects of the story? Do you still take some bits of the actual plot from these theories on occasion?
Recurring fan theories and trending points of discussion at most usually appear in the story in the form of various “shout outs”. But then later, given enough time, eventually some of those shout outs start to accumulate more relevance, as smaller things often do.
hussie what did roxy mean by dirk being an unintelligible bachelor?
Unintelligible? You mean difficult to understand?
I don’t understand your question. It’s ineligible.
do you feel weird when fans dressed up as your characters come up and talk to you
This doesn’t happen outside of cons, and I don’t go to cons often. I haven’t been to one since… I think TCAF, last May?
Which is to my regret. I’d like to go to more. Frequent traveling is difficult and disruptive though. Hopefully I will do a fair number this year, probably beginning with TCAF again as luck would have it. Though something I have to weigh about that and events like it is how much I want to risk turning a mild Toronto library into a rabid den of outlandishly dressed teens. I’m not really sure the show’s organizers had that in mind when they cooked it up. I also seem to get a lot of invites to Anime cons now. As in, a quantity of invites FAR EXCEEDING the number of anime cons I thought existed. So I don’t know, maybe I’ll do… one or two of those? That seems to be my wheelhouse now, or at least is the wheelhouse my readers would like me to have. The animes wheelhouse. It could be fun doing an anime con in a sort of “WOW I SURE DON’T BELONG HERE!” kind of way.
But to answer the actual question, I’m perfectly fine encountering people in costumes. It’s fun, and they’re usually nice and friendly people.
The perception from my vantage may shift somewhat as the sheer magnitude of these swarms increases. Not necessarily in a bad way though. But really, what conceivable reaction to such hordes can a human have other than some form of disbelief? Something along the lines of “Wow, that SURE IS a herd of fifty Nepetas there. That is just like… a LOT of fucking Nepetas.”
What’s the relationship status between you and North? Have you done the full yaoi?
The full yaoi is actually a wrestling move wherein one guy piledrives the other into a foldout table covered in anime DVDs.
No I haven’t roped North into that one yet, but man, when I do?
Why aren’t you uploading 100 pages per day forever like you said?
Fact: The most pages I have ever uploaded in one day was around 25.
The joke was that that number is a lot and also that it won’t happen.
Well here goes anyway: When the session was reset, and the beta kids were supposed to remember nothing, why did Dave seem to have memory enough to still write the beautiful SBAHJ that was influenced by Terezi? Do he and the others remember some of the events in their beta session?
It pays to investigate questions like this more thoroughly.
Do we ABSOLUTELY know that SBaHJ was solely the product of Terezi’s influence?
Didn’t he scrawl SBaHJ graffiti on his walls at some point, unconsciously? Could she have “seen” those at some point and been influenced herself? If this is true, doesn’t that mean SBaHJ was always a product of his unconscious mind, and then brought to his waking awareness through Terezi’s help?
Something similar could have happened with post-scratch Dave, by some other means. Which means SBaHJ is a universally constant product of his subconscious, much like Rose’s wizardfic is of hers.
are the images on bro’s tv screen from that one weird porn website of people who are photoshopped to look like animals ?
… there’s only one of those?
Will we ever get any more insight on the origin of the Felt? A lot of people have these great ideas that they were once carapieces and whatnot. The subtle Eggs and Biscuits reference in the recent update has sparked my interest on them again.
I wish to now Roxy’s favorite video game. So that I may play it.
Her favorite games were probably my favorite games, since I don’t actually know about the games I never played, and the ones I didn’t like were shit. She wouldn’t like shit games.
Of all those systems I probably liked Gamecube the best. SNES was probably a close second.
I’m going to pick two good games out of a hat for both systems, and you may investigate those. Pikmin, and Earthbound.
How much did the crane to hold Vriska cost? Because I’ve been looking into it, and crane rentals cost a lot of money.
The crane snapped in half and I lost my deposit.
I don’t want to talk about it.
have you ever considered watching an episode of hetalia? i think it would be very ironic and funny if you did.
I have not seen it and don’t really plan to. There isn’t a lot of anime that’s on my “to watch” list.
While staying fair to something I haven’t seen and could be rad for all I know, I will say that these are the two words that spring to my awareness when I hear about the show’s premise.
Hussie! What power does a hero of heart have?
You have no choice but to eventually find out through the grueling serial drip that is the slowroll of Homestuck’s lurching megalithic doomsday device it calls a plot.
Are you actually a fan of Parks and Rec.?
Yes, it really is a show that is demonstrably superior to all presently running comedies. It’s like the Office, but dramatically better in every way. And I think the Office is good too.
Any hints to the comic following after Homestuck?
Just gonna come out and say it.
This is exactly the kind of thing you can’t think about if you want to finish something like Homestuck.
I’ve had ideas. They’ve come and gone. We’re still truckin here.
(trucker horn pulling motion)
How are you going to choose the winning songs for that contest? There are so many entries.
I have people to help me narrow them down, notably Radiation.
One stupid question, I know John and Jade have their food supply…but what about Rose, Dave and the trolls? Are they going to starve to death?
There are alchemiters on the meteor. Remember how Kanaya made Eridan’s wand?
As for things to duplicate, who knows what’s there. Sure hope Rose and Dave like troll food!
What tend to be your considerations when decorating the rooms for characters as they are introduced? Do you look at what would be funny first, or what relates to the character first?
Funny and relevant is often the same. Practically everything dropped in has some kind of significance.
That said, designing rooms is weirdly time consuming. Making those two rooms almost felt like the labor equivalent of doing a flash. It just gets so picayune and annoying after a while. I’ve said this before, but I’d almost always rather just DRAW than fuss over a lot of tiny bullshit.
Who do you consider the tallest of the trolls?
My sense is a lot of people’s headcanons have Gamzee as the tallest troll.
I’m gonna go ahead and canonically confirm that Gamzee is in fact the shortest troll of all.
Busted fan artists.
If you really liked something you heard from the music contest, would you invite the artist to make more music for homestuck?
That is a distinct possibility.
You mentioned previously in the comic that your interference in the story would last one yard. Can you give us a hint on what that entails?
That was already explained pretty clearly I think. John and Jade ride across the yellow yard, and coexist in my universe for that exact distance. One yard relative to me, not them! I have said that you could also view it that the exact nature of my interference over this distance was to make it a much longer journey for them. You could view it that way, because it is true.
But this reminds me of a sort of “FAQ” which I’ve read in places sometimes but never addressed. It is basically:
“If one yard is your only influence, why did you kill Doc Scratch and rip off his leg? Isn’t that influencing stuff?”
No, because I didn’t kill him. This was also explained. When in my proximity, he goes unconscious like a reverse Calvin and Hobbes deal. Then I left, and he stayed asleep for just a little while, until the conditions for LE’s arrival were met. Then LE busted out of him, thus killing Scratch, fulling his claim that he needs to be dead for LE to arrive. Because his arrival itself is what kills him! This would have happened regardless, and my involvement affected nothing at all. Maybe if he wasn’t unconscious, he might have refreshed the scotty dog bowl once or twice while waiting around to become LE, and that’s it.
Ripping his leg off didn’t affect anything either. LE has a peg leg regardless. It’s a feature of his appearance, not a consequence of Scratch losing a leg. When I ripped his leg off, that was just another one of these serendipitous maimings you see here and there. Like how Vriska lost an arm and an eye, and so did Spades Slick, to echo the kid session prototypings. There’s no cause and effect here. It’s a recurring cosmic coincidence.
This reminds me of another one of these common FAQs I’ve never talked about. I’ll answer that one, then stop!
“Scratch said doomed timeline Vriska killed Bec Noir. Was she really that strong???”
First, time to get all the facts straight.
Scratch didn’t know if she won or lost. All he said was, though it would be a good fight and she’s probably outclassed, he wouldn’t bet against her. And why would he? Everything we’ve been shown about her suggests she always seems to find a way to come out on top, even if things look bad for her, or it seems like “karma” should prevent her victory. Mix in her dice roll powerup, her great luck, and who knows?
But let’s assume she did beat him for a second. Is this actually unthinkable, when you really break it down and examine it through video game logic?
1) A god tier player, perhaps a number of tiers higher than base level. By how many is anyone’s guess.
2) Extremely lucky, at the EXPENSE of her opponent’s luck, by way of her power.
3) Most important of all: she rolled 8 8’s on her dice.
Think about the last point. Imagine in an RPG, a probability based attack, where the strongest one had a 1 in 16,777,216 chance to be used, every time you tried it? If you tried using this attack once every second, you wouldn’t be likely to hit the jackpot for 194 days!!! This must be a ridiculously strong attack. It was the one used to kill the black king, and that was before she even got the exp. for doing so.
Think of it as you would an ultimate upgrade in a game. Like a Mario star. Sure, Bowser is way stronger than Mario. But if he gets that star, all bets are off! It is a completely absurd advantage she’s afforded by that dice roll, which is only made possible through her great luck. Her power complemented her personality, which was that of a born cheater. The only problem was, her advantages didn’t matter in a doomed timeline. That wasn’t how things were supposed to go. If she beat him, he wouldn’t have killed the big frog, the green sun wouldn’t exist, and none of this ever gets started.
But is it at least plausible that she won? I don’t see why not. The fact that it was a close match actually says as much about how strong Jack is as it does about her, when you take into account all these insane upgrades she had.
These questions are forver. Ok a few more, that’s it.
Are all God Tier titles made of monosyllabic components?
Yes. Class and aspect, one syllable, always. This is a rule.
Ok, John is the Heir of Breath. He shares part of his title with Equius, the Heir of Void. He shares his aspect with Roxy is the Rogue of Void. Then Nepeta is the Rogue of Heart. Dirk is the Prince of Heart, who shares a title with Equius, the Prince of Hope, who shares an aspect with Jake the Page of Hope. And then Tavros is the Page of Breath, and then we’re back to John again. So is this some kind of Mobius Double Reacharound that Skia uses to name the players?
You’re reading too much into stuff.
Is Homestuck going to end on 6/12/13?
The absolute best way for me to guarantee this won’t happen is for me to say yes.
You said the webcomic ‘Moe’ is one of the greatest comics in the world and that it’s updating again. I took a look at it, and the art style seems kinda similar to yours. Are you and the artist of Moe the same person?
No, it’s by my pal Michael Firman. We’ve traded ideas on art and comics for many years. I’m sure there’s some creative overlap some respects. The whole concept and style of the pesterchum dialogue in HS probably drew a good bit of inspiration from our old online exchanges.
What’s your favourite dance move?
The Full Hentai.
HOW WERE THE BREADSTICKS AT OLIVE GARDEN
I made my position abundantly clear.
