    So WV is now a passenger. How did PM know to dump him in there? Did she know at all? Does it have something to do with her new powers, or did the firefly tell her what to do about it? Actually, that morse translator didn't work out for me, anyone have a transcript of what it said earlier?

    She said err.. something like "YOU SUCK" to Jack and then "Please. help him" to PM, then "Please miss, help my friend" to Rose.

    So wait.......Jack is a portal? Was that even Jack?
    I am quite happy that WV is going on the trip, hopefully he'll be alive soon.

    Anyone with the powers of a First Guardian becomes a portal leading directly to the Green Sun. So far Jack, Jade, and PM have all demonstrated this ability; Jack stored Lil' Cal there back when he had just killed Mom and Dad, and Aradia later flew through his chest to reach the Green Sun. The other two used their powers recently enough to be self-evident.

    Alright, major things we know as fact:

    Ro-Lal is Roxy
    Di-Stri is Dick Dirk

    Roxy is Rogue of Void
    Dirk is Prince(ss) of Heart

    Roxy has been traveling into the VOID, which is really just a dream bubble.
    Dirk knows this, but is afraid of the Horrorterrors evidently (which draws a parallel to Dave's hesitancy about them, too)

    Also, I guess Hussie will be using dreambubbles to show off GOF TIER designs maybe???

    I have to say, I am kind of glad they are being used. Can finally figure out what intel Jade was getting when and from Aradia/Fef all this time, and what Jade's last dream after death was about.

    Also, the Batterwitch must have done some crazy shit to Post Scratch Earth
    because Dirk is dick!Kanaya more or less

    EDIT: Oh and I guess the Scratch!Guardians are all dead????

    noo rose and dave and john and jade ;________;

    The Guardians are all dead just as they were in the original thing. In fact, I think every player has to lose their guardians in order for them to be able to even enter the game. because in Sburb, death is a reality and is forcing you to face death. Once you die, you are either a god or you dream forever about anything and better times.

    Or at least, that's how I interpret it.

    These dreambubbles are too cheerful for me. They rob the story of any real consequence when the afterlife is a perfectly happy place where every single variation of every single person goes once they are dead. Potentially tragic characters, such as Nepeta and Vriska, have their love-lives instantly solved. All impact of Nepeta dying without confessing her obsession is lost when she just meets up with another Karkat, and it's very difficult to be sad for Vriska being backstabbed away from John when she ends up with beta!John within the next few panels. I expect Lord English or Jack to start killing the Horrorterrors, and as such, the dreambubbles, shortly. Until that happens, death will have little consequence.

    I thought I would just hop on into this thread and tell you all that I had a gun held to my head and so I was forced to start reading it.

    Not really, but I started reading it. >~>

    The beginning is really slow, but I got some laughs out of it, and the opening sequence was pretty epic. I'm not exactly sure what page I'm on, but I would like to say something about 2034? John just checked back in on the loading SBURB beta and starts talking to TT [who I assume is Rose, as GG is Jade and TG is Dave].

    So, yeah . . . Better late than never, I guess.

    Well, when the populations of two universes don't get dream bubbles, and also since the dream bubble people don't stay there forever, it was insinuated there's another Afterlife beyond them, it gives it a bit more perspective. I think it's the Medium and Paradox Space's way of rewarding the people who die in the game for their sacrifices while they play it, and I think it's very poetic ... so yeah, not consequence robbing at all.

    Yep, TT is Rose.

    I also suggest bookmarking where you are instead of trying to remember yourself.

    1. The dream bubbles were Feferi's idea, and how she chose to use her power. So no, no significance is lost; she is fulfilling her purpose and helping her friends.

    2. We've already seen that it doesn't solve every problem; people can be taken from them, we don't know if they're permanent, and who knows how resilient they are. They may very well come under attack at some point.

    3. There is a very real threat affecting the universe outside of those bubbles. Are you saying there's no tension because they can just leave all that behind? That sounds like an ideological issue more than a narrative one.

    4. Read this and see if it doesn't change your mind.

    Glad to see more readers c: I hope you enjoy! And yeah everyone keeps saying the beginning is slow, I still don't get it. It's funny. I always thought Hussie was crazy funny. But I guess without that it's kind of rough at first.

    Okay, so I'm confused as fuck.

    I'm on 3787, in the middle of the end of Act 4 and the PARADOX CLONES were just created. As I understand, I knew this was going to happen.

    Let me get this straight . . .

    John and his little look-alike are . . . each others grandfathers?
    Dave and his little look-alike are . . . each others brothers?
    Rose and her little look-alike are . . . each others mothers?
    Jade and her little look-alike are . . . each others grandmothers?

    I'm so lost. All of these time jumps are headache inducing. Now, I know a little about the other characters that appear, not so much the story. Do these four babies become Jake, Dirk, Jane, and Roxy? It would make sense because I know Roxy has a . . . drinking problem, and so does Rose's mom.

    And one other thing I noticed was that Jade's grandfather has a striking resemblance to John, while Nanna looks sort of like Jade - does this mean that John and Jade are related somehow, or are her grandfather and Nanna their future selves gone back in time to become their own grandparents?

    Ahhhhg, Homestuck, I knew it was a bad idea to get into you.

    EDIT: Okay this shit . . .

    3790: Four new clones of baby John, Dave, Jade, and Rose appeared.

    That's it, I need someone to explain this shit to me now.

    Happy Homestuck Day! :D

    And happy birthday to John and Jane~

    Anyway,

    I wonder which kid will die first.

    Placing my bets on Dirk's dream self since, well, DD is out to get him after the Prince of Heart: Rise Up fiasco. Also, I'm really curious as to why the meteors sent Roxy and Dirk that far into the future. ._.

    also yeah and jane and yeah condesce

    THE GAME IS NEARLY HERE GENTS (and ladies).

    also inb4flash maybe???

    THAT FLASH WAS GORGEOUS

    Anyway, many things alluded here (summary of what Claw, Haseo, What, GS and I were discussing):



    • The "Jane is inverting her Maid of Life" title is gaining validity (the DEATH ALL AROUND HER, and Land of Helium and CRYPTS)
    • UU and uu are highly likely to be the same person (Homestuck fans and haters in one body hehehe)
    • Jake will die.
    • At least one of Roxy's and Dirk's selves will die before the God Tiers will arrive.
    • Jane will meet Hemera, confirmed as her Denizen (again?)
    • As Claw pointed out, Jane's light was blown out by a Gust of Heir. So yeah.
    • Land names were revealed, can't remember them at the moment of typing, so someone fix plz.
    • And that's about it? Oh, yeah. The kids, once all together, will be fighting demons. Implying more than one LE, possibly. Or just LE + Condsece + evil!GCAT whatever.

    Alright so that flash was pretty much amazing and I hope Hussie does more interactive (point and click puzzle whatever) flashes like this again. /even if it did crash the site

    I agree with the theory that uu and UU are the same person considering that duel selves are a constant thing in Homestuck (ex. Sollux, Dirk/Ar, Gamzee's split selves, etc). And the fact that UU refers uu as her "brother" which is impossible since trolls can't really have siblings in the first place? Also the fact that UU claims that uu is asleep when UU is awake. But yeah uu and UU being the same person is most likely going to be a thing.

    I was also talking about another theory with plums awhile ago that relates to the recent flash.
    Nobles were mentioned in the stone tablets and usually nobles are referred as Lady and Lord so basically...Lady Crocker, Lord Strider, Lady Lalonde, and Lord English. What I got from it is that maybe Jake turns into Lord English somehow or if it's just a coincidence. But there's also the fact that Jake uses guns as a weapon just like LE does so there's that.
    If Jake actually does turn out to be evil or something I will just be heartbroken.

    And I'm really glad we're going to see more lands soon because I'm a sucker for the Homestuck landporn. ;3

    There's a big theory going around that the new lands will All have "Noble Gasses" in them. Makes sense with the "Nobles" thing.

    Land of Crypts and Helium
    Land of ___ and Neon
    Land of ___ and Krypton
    Land of ___ and Xenon.

    Because it's a void session, this adds further symbolism - noble gasses don't react with other chemicals, implying a state of void, no action, deadlock.

    Also, I don't think Jane's inverting her Aspect at all, in fact I think her quest is to repopulate her planet with Life, using the water and seedpods and her Life powers to propegate plantlife - in effect becoming an Avatar for her aspect. I suspect that Sylph and Maid are Active/Passise sisters, so maybe somethign to do with being healer of life, bringing life back to a dead planet.

    Oh man but since Rose penetrated the bubble that means LE's probably not far behind...

    And I'm also really curious how ascension will work for Jake possibly. He's only got his living self left, unless his dead dreamself being put on the slab would still be viable much ike Jade's body in Cascade (though Jade was only minutes while Jake's dreamself has been dead for months now).
