oh, are the homestuck end credits meant to imply that vriska disappeared for good? yesss. this automatically makes the ending the best possible one. fuck vriska. the only interesting vriska was the doomed one who ended up with meenah for a while, and then meenah went and broke up with her. that's ironic, there's actually a ship i like and it's a canonical one but it doesn't last

woah homestuck is over how is that even possible. how will my life continue without endless hiatuses. steven universe just isn't up to the same standards yet. nothing beats a year-long hiatus

hey look, homestuck updated! and it only took eight months this time! watching the steven universe fandom freak out about its so-called hiatuses is funny. baby hiatuses...

i am very tired for no reason and want to convince my teacher that i'm not feeling well and need to go home. i keep saying that and never actually doing it, but still. there's pretty good odds he'd play along too, this is his last week of work ever

are you serious, i get to watch an entire two new episodes after getting caught up and then already have to deal with a hiatus? haven't i already been through enough fandom hiatuses for the entire rest of my life with homestuck? not like the gigapause lasted a whole fucking year or anything. and like we've been on omegapause for about three months at this point and the best estimate for the next (and final) updates is "sometime next year". nevermind that these were not the only hiatuses. that can't sound normal to anyone who hasn't been riding it out for years...

also i love how homestuck is apparently making ships happen, but none of them are the ones people have been crazy about for literally years :3

also yeah, okay, now i accept that whatever might be going on with dave and karkat isn't moirallegience. doesn't seem like it would be much of a moirallegience if there's things they can't talk about because one or both aren't comfortable with it...

(moirallegience would still be more interesting though, conventional human-style romance ships are seriously so boring)

tl;dr vriska is again/once more/still a huge 8itch

dunno why anyone would've expected otherwise though, she is and always has been awful

actually it's pretty weird, both rose and kanaya are interesting characters, so how does the result of putting them in a relationship turn out so shitty and dull. dull to the point where i keep forgetting how cool they used to be before the relationship in question started. honestly, the whole thing needs to end like yesterday.

and if anyone argues that oh but it has to keep going because ~*lesbian representation*~, i'll kick them in the face. relationships in stories are not solely about representation. stories are not solely about representation. they have to be well-written and entertaining as well, there's nothing to justify the existance of a story that isn't, the end.

there we go, conclusive confirmation that humans are capable of the same feelings that trolls base kismessitude on. i mean it's not as if hussie already confirmed that all the quadrants were based on real relationships that happen between real people yeeears ago or anything. the way i see it we just try to parse them all as belonging in the same single kind of relationship and sometimes it works and sometimes it really doesn't.

(also i have personally experienced a situation that looked so much like one person trying to act as a morail for another who was none too pleased by it, sooo)

also re: dave only responding to the question of whether he's gay now with "uh", let's consider that dirk also doesn't want to be called gay though it theoretically fits because he considers the term to be "antediluvian" (though we don't, at the time, know just how literal that actually is). or alternatively, you know, a guy being interested in other guys could just as well make him bisexual

i'm totally going to refer to the post-retcon version of B2 as B2 SE now. the existance of windows 98 SE will never not be funny to me.

seriously though, i hate vriska as much as the next person, but it was still a great flash. and it's not really that strange that one small change in a timeline could fan out into huge differences over the course of three years. i mean do you never once realise just how many tiny and large events and coincidences all falling into the right place at the right time it actually took for you to exist here, now, as the precise person you know yourself to be? it's completely baffling! chronology is hard and nobody understands. and this story is just doing exactly the same thing right now.

too fucking bad though, the sequence where jane encounters gamzee and he creates tavrisprite was hilarious, but it never happened in the new timeline

the most important thing about this update is dave and karkat being totally adorable together!! i don't even want to ship them (as in "honestly i'm so bored of shipping at this point", not as in "actively dislike the idea", that would be meenah and vriska, they would've been much cuter as a pale couple uuugh). they are just awesome i want more of them aaah.

also there you go, vriska from the old alpha still exists, as i would've expected. it's not like we haven't seen tons of ghosts from alternate timelines before this point?? i guess people wondered because she's from a rewritten timeline, but i guess my intuition is that once you end up in a dreambubble you're good and changes to the timeline you're from don't have any effect anymore...
