> WRITER: FLIP OUT

Your name is IMPORTANT, and you are currently trying to pen a brilliant HOMESTUCK FANFICTION. Unfortunately, you have hit A REALLY FUCKING BIG BRICK WALL, and need a little bit of help.

Perhaps this is out of your area of expertise (if so don't bother with this ask!) but what would you do with Namco High in relation with the HS canon? I've always taken the game as having only minimal relation to HS canon, but it *is* referenced a few times, so... If you were to write a piece set specifically in the NH'verse, would you consider integrating elements of the HS timelines, and how? (I don't need a detailed account, simply wanted your point of view) (also thanks :))

I’m pretty certain it’s not canon in the same way Paradox Space is. Stretching it a bit it could be considered pseudo-canon? Though really it’s about having fun with the characters in unusual settings. All of this could be Karkat’s fever dream of going out with the girl he liked using a weird Prince’s Cousin avatar and a strange orange creamsicle version of his buddy Dave. There are some tiny details from canon (like the bloody pendant Davesprite wears or how he -knows- he’s in a computer game when you do a second playthrough) that are really cool but honestly I don’t think we’re meant to take any of it seriously. It’s just for fun!

"Nepeta isn’t that physically strong!"

"Nepeta would never be mean or is as sassy as other trolls!"

Nepeta hates Terezi and is jealous of her!”

"Besides shipping and cats, Nepeta’s world revolves around Karkat!"

Nepeta doesn’t even interact with anyone besides Equius!”

"Nepeta gets along with everyone!"

Karkat hates Nepeta and is annoyed by her red feelings for him!”

….”Ok but -

No.

You better respect Nepeta Leijon, this has been a PSA.

does every fansession HAVE to have a mutant or HAVE to have 12 trolls? because i'm afraid of making a mutant blood and if i need 12 trolls, i'll have to put 2 trolls with the same blood caste.
Anonymous

nope, in fact the inclusion of 12 people in the trolls’ session apparently made things very difficult for them, and mutantbloods are by no means required for a session to be successful!! Sburb doesn’t care about blood caste

Do you think it would be possible to have a session with both trolls and humans?
Anonymous

I don’t see any reason why not!! technically the only requirements for a session to be successful is for there to be a Space player, a Time player, and a knight - there’s no rule stating that all the players have to be the same species

How far are you into your fic?

(Not really sure who this is addressed to, so I’ll answer and the other mods can add their own comments as they please! I’m pretty sure Lizzie has a fic going, but I’m not sure about Crista… I know she’s doing artwork commissions, though! )

I’m about 114k words into mine! But progress has slowed down in the past couple of months because of school and my new job. I’m hoping things will pick back up once I’m settled into my new living space, though! All of the information about it is here if you’re interested. :3  (— Darian)

Lil Cal’s Stable Time Loop

The other day, I realized what went wrong in Davesprite’s timeline: he used Lil Cal to prototype his sprite.

We never got a clear explanation of where the Cal in Dream Dave’s room came from, but I’m guessing that Gamzee put it there with his chucklevoodoos, similar to how he put the clown doll in Dream John’s room. That Cal from the dream room went on to become the Cal who got sliced to bits on Dave’s roof, which Davesprite used as prototyping material. The problem is that the prototyping process completely consumes the object used to prototype; in Davesprite’s timeline, Cal was stuck inside the sprite, so he was never retrieved and repaired by Bro and never fell into Gamzee’s hands, and thus never inspired Gamzee to create Cal in the first place. Calsprite wasn’t just annoying — he was temporally impossible. That time paradox was what screwed Davesprite’s timeline.

OOOOH THIS MAKES SENSE

If buckets are terrifying to Trolls then why are they portrayed with humor and awkwardness in all of but one time?

Look how terrified Karkat is, he’s not embarrassed at all this is very serious.

Watch your shit, John, you’re scaring Vriska!

Flushing in shame… and fear!

Excuse me, do you know of any good Homestuck Fanventure? Since Homestuck is in Hiatus I have a lot of time to kill, and I've already read Heinoustuck (and I think it's in hiatus right now)

yep, we’ve got a masterpost of some fanventures right here!

Hi! For the ask about krazieleylines, she's at krazieleylines2 now. (Just in case you needed to know, sorry if I'm bothering you.)

Oh my goodness, thank you so much!! Unfortunately, it looks like she has deleted her rp guide series, which is kind of a bummer. But thank you very much for letting us know!!
