That's pretty heavy handed, even for a SBaHJ.
Calling now, Kanaya's toast.

They resumed today! And immediately broke the server. GOOD NEWS THOUGH! It's more Homosuck, just like we'd begin hankering for.

I never did go back and read the last few dozen pages to remember where the hell we are.

The update is just one page. If you can't load it, try going directly to the image file. The caption is:

WELCOME BACK.


Not too long ago, I reread all of Act 6 Act 6 in order to get caught up. I'm gonna level with you: this is exactly what I was hoping would happen next.

Why yes, yes it is a real Deviant art account.

Dat sidemouth.

Also: I actually felt sympathy for Caliborn for the first time upon seeing his self-insert character. Didn't think I could do that!

from the newspost:

Quote:
So it's hard to avoid finding it just a LITTLE funny that after a year-long drought, hopping back in the saddle means we will have to wade through 50 pages of completely atrocious garbage before anything happens. It's funny how life works out sometimes. Funnier than a clown tickling a horse. Sometimes you pause your famous webcomic for a year, and then your grand reopening is a lot of bad anime. On such occasions, when life hands you those kooky lemons, there is really only one thing you can say.

Fuck lemonade. These lemons are incredible.
I'm immediately reminded why I love/hate/butmostlylove this comic.

Weirdly enough, when Homestuck went on break, I kind of just stopped reading webcomics in general. It was usually the first one I checked, and breaking that habit seems to have broken the whole cycle. ...

And meanwhile Paradox Space is doing a week-long homage to freaking Tomie. As the one person who gives a @#$% about Tomie, this leaves me very amused.

Default Yep, THAT'S what I decided to post about

Well, that sure was some [S].

How ironic, that Caliborn's very first beating would be in the proximity of some horses. What? You didn't follow that? Just think it over. Think it over...

This can't be alpha timeline, not without additional John shenanigans, though. Gamzee can't die. Not that I don't derive perfect joy from watching Kanaya do her work. But still, omg. omg.

There are three reasons why this isn't gonna stick. Two of them are closely related.

The first, and most meta, is that the villain has been writing the plot this whole act act. You think the story he came up with - even if only by jamming a bunch of special stardust in to the expansion pak - is gonna stand?

The second, and most important, is that John has the power to change anything, unfettered by the limitations of time travel.

The third, and most proximate, is that everything that happened here is a result of Aranea's intervention, and you may recall that pretty much guarantees we're in a doomed timeline, because she's not gonna get a chance to go with her stupid plan to try to make it alpha somehow
.

No, what's really going on here is that some events that are happening concurrently with this, such as Jade's conversation with Calliope, and whatever Rose wanted to tell Roxy, are going to have to be critical to preventing this disaster. Which means that has to happen before it can be prevented from happening, you follow?

I find it amusing that this time, John was pretty much the only one who didn't die.

Smart move throwing Karkat to the lava first as a gut punch in the series of escalating deaths. I really figured that was going to stick until bodies started piling up, including a dead Dave.

Hell of a way to kick things back into gear, though!

Yeah, given that Jane can bring people back to life only once (allegedly) starting the body count with Karkat, who who just brought back as a demonstration, really set the tone.

I had two thoughts: One, that this is not the alpha timeline, for the reasons said above, or two, that they all need to be "dead" (so much as one is dead in this world) to properly confront English, with Vriska's batshit plan. But I'm leaning toward for the former.

So, the homestuck game.

Switching to a different dev studio: WhatPumpkin.

The plan is: two games, released episodically. The first is called HIVESWAP.

They're about a human girl (Joey) and a troll boy who switch places and are trying to get home. One game is about Joey's journey, the other is about the troll's.

... I'm excited!

Every artist on earth ever loves Caliborn now.

Upd8 Edit: this might actually be the strongest sequence of panels in Homestuck so far.

So much for Echidna and Yaldabaoth

Gah, curse my inability to distinguish between small shapes. Is that Dirk at the end there? Looks like it with the salmon clothes and all, but...see the first sentence.
