Also interesting is the fact that Karkat has basically vented at Eridian's past self (back when his genocidal tendencies weren't so pronounced) and told him that he will kill him the next time he sees him.

While I really shouldn't be happy about Karkat planning on doing the exact same thing Eridian just did, I...guess he's earned my sympathy. Especially in light of what's happened.

Um.... what?
Spoiler:
Eridan:
-wanted to genocide all land-dwelling trolls from panel 1
-actively pursued means of genociding all land-dwelling trolls
-plotted to betray the 12 surviving land-dwelling trolls to Jack Noir (thus genociding them what a coincidence I wonder where that shocking twist came from? :O)
-incessantly whined about getting insufficient attention from people he held in obvious and abject contempt
-used every girl he came across without the consideration of giving something in return ever crossing his mind for the most fleeting of seconds
-decided to murder initially nonviolent NPCs for absolutely no reason
-expected everyone else to meet in his world (with the pissed-off angels) and didn't even consider (again) meeting in one of their shitholes (it would be so beneath him)
-murdered his former best friend/love interested when she attempted to stop him from murdering every other living troll
-(and getting his dumb ass killed in the bargain, might I add, as anyone who was paying attention would have known, and everyone who heard tried to tell him)
-murdered the last hope of the troll race just to piss off the second of the 3 trolls who occasionally showed him attention
-murdered said troll with the weapon she made for him when she, for some reason, got angry about the above
-ran off, though I will grant you he did not kill Karkat for no reason, so clearly he is okay with people as long as they are doormats

Karkat:
-said that when he next met Eridan, he would brutally kill him (and only him) in return for the cold-blooded murder of his friends that happened *right in front of his eyes* five minutes ago (did I mention the blood of one of those victims was at that moment staining his hands)

...Jesus Christ how do you live with your arrant hypocrisy in finding one more sympathetic than the other. Clearly you should be ashamed. There's no substantive difference there at all.

Of course, I thought Eridan was an utterly insufferable douchebag from day one. I could be wrong. But I'm not.

Ah.

That would explain my sympathies lying with Karkat, in spite of the fact that murder is, by and by, wrong no matter why you do it (that is my personal belief, but this is a story).

Of course, my pondering of the situation doesn't change the fact that I fully expect Eridian to get what's coming to him in the near future. Especially since he is a moronic murderous hipster asshole.

Gamzee vs. Eridian fight, y'all.

So I read the most recent page of Homestuck at a friend's house tonight, and I laughed harder than I ever had in my entire life.

It was pretty ridiculous, but I guess I needed something to releave the tension after the last few pages of angst and horror.

So, since the mood has suddenly changed again, I figure it's time for some humor.

For example, what in the world is in this panel of 'Getbackers'?

Spoiler:
What in the....png
What in the....png (117.08 KiB) Viewed 6094 times


Seriously, the hell?

Edit because I really shouldn't be wasting people's time with this crap:

Spoiler:
Aside from the bad Sweet Bro related find, though, let us now count the ways that Karkat's life went to Hell in a Handbasket.

1) He is trapped on a meator with several of his friends while an omnipotent monster attempts to find and kill them all.

2) Recently, Eriden finally loses hope and succumms to his genocidal urges, killing Feferi and Kanaya for basically no reason and destroying the only hope of reviving their race. He is clearly disturbed by this, as mentioned when ameretrifle chewed me out for thinking too deeply into why I wanted him to kill the guy who committed the murders, and wants Eriden dead.

3) No sooner has this happened than Gamzee announces himself to be the goddamn messiah and his intention to kill everyone in the immediate area, causing Karkat a great amount of stress that is clearly having an effect on his mental health given how he now flips out whenever he hears honking.

4) After a futile attempt at reviving the previously murdered friends, Karkat gets a message from Terezi that she has discovered Tavros dead, has (correctly) assumed Vriska did it, and is basically screwing around when their are multiple killers on the loose.

5) As if it weren't enough, Terezi's recent discovery suggests that Kanaya may have come back from the dead as a GODDAMN VAMPIRE, and depending on how much of her original personality is intact Karkat could be in for a painful reunion that may send him right over the edge.

All this proves is that I need to get an account on the MSPA forums sometime, because this place is basically inactive.
I really should be working right now, but somehow I don't have the energy.

Agreed.

Spoiler:
The flash update made me really freaked out. And not the 'something jumps out at you' freaked out, but the 'atmospheric horror as you realize that everything is going to go horribly wrong' freaked out. I love it.

Also, I'm fairly sure that Equius is going to get killed off next. Here's to hoping that he manages to do some damage on his way down.

Yeah...
Spoiler:
Oh, yes. I was all "Do we really have to go this direction? Why can't you just stay here by the big pile of sugar, Nepeta? Please? Aaaaaaaa gonna get brutally killed by a clown aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa"

I don't know if Equius is really gonna be able to stand up to Gamzee at all... good on him if he does, it'd be awesome character development for a character who's had almost none, but I don't know if he can... he might rather serve him or submit to his fate or something dumb like that, I never liked Equius much.

You know what would be awesome? Nepeta watching Gamzee kill Equius... and then killing the shit out of him. That would also be great character development for a troll who's been little but tropes. O_O Probably not gonna happen though. >_> "Most important character in Homestuck" and all, way too anticlimactic and quick. Unfortunately, that does leave the door open for "flipping the fuck out, trying to kill him, and failing"... :( Which would still almost be worth it for Nepeta doing something, but still...

Also, I liked Nepeta's theme... AND ROSE <3 KANAYA IS NOT DEAD i mean uh YOU SAW NOTHING >_> <_< ;)

To be honest, I found it
Spoiler:
anticlimactic. Wasn't much of a fight, Equius got his ass kicked real quick, died in about five seconds, didn't even scrabble a bit as he went down... I was hoping for some actual resistance at some point, even if it had absolutely no effect. Like Nepeta's is sadly likely to. >_> Did he put up any resistance at all? Was he that crazy that he actually liked it or something?? It could be rictus, but he looked suspiciously like he was smiling. Gamzee living up to his blood at last. I am disappoint.

You folks are way too into this.

I still say it's quite likely someone or other is going to do something to the timeline and everyone will come back to life. And Hussie will have a good laugh and drag the story on a little bit longer.

Well, as for Equius.

Spoiler:
According to Hussie and several members of the forums, he was so overcome by his obsession with the Hierarchy and his Dominance Fetish that he couldn't even block it off to save his own life. It sucks, but given his characterization it isn't too surprising.

As for Nepeta, we are unsure of her fate as of yet. Most people are calling death and I came up with a theory (in about five seconds) that involves Gamzee taking her hostage as bait for some sadistic trap for the other trolls after the screen just blacked out without anything happening, but I guess we'll have to wait an see.

I would think non-troll-fans would be happy with this turn of events, since it is a pretty transparent play to trim down the troll cast and ditch some of the peripheral one-note characters

Spoiler:
I'm really not that bloodthirsty at all-- that's probably a large part of the reason I don't like the trolls in the first place. But I do know someone who's absolutely thrilled. ;) However, since we didn't have a whole damn act focusing on them anymore, my active animosity had dimmed-- and guess which trolls were some of my favorites? That's right, the first to go. :(

...Equius I won't miss though.

Look, I wasn't complaining about the turn of events as much as pointing out that it wasn't a particularly impressive first kill, in contrast to the "taking Equius down like a boss" that Triangle_Man had mentioned, that's all. YMMV. :)

Edit for latest update (well, as much of it as I could see-- haven't seen the most recent page):

Spoiler:
Let's see...

Vriska's in the middle of an internal conflict, we have no idea what happened to Nepeta, not to mention that the trolls are either killing or being killed at this point. Let's face it, their plotline has become downright depressing.

And morbid, which is apparently normal for Hussie.

At least the kids' storyline has a bit more of a light at the end of the tunnel. Too bad the setup of the plot keeps us from seeing very much of them as of late.

I am just so damn happy about this most recent conversation.
Spoiler:
It's been obvious from the start that Vriska was going to be sympathetic eventually. The lusus, the hints of "I'm just trying to make you stronger" in the Tavros nonsense-- this has been a long time coming. And while I REALLY wish it'd been sprinkled in a little bit more all along rather than this one sympathy-dump all at once, I don't even care anymore, I am so fucking glad the penny's finally dropped. SO glad. If any of that makes any sense.

It's probably silly, but dissonance between how a character is meant to seem and how they actually seem just stresses the hell out of me, probably disproportionately. Vriska FINALLY doing something to earn a bit of the sympathy she's obviously been built toward all along (even if it turns around next panel, regardless of whether what she's done is any less inexcusable) is such a load off my mind. Not to imply that it was stressing me outside of the story, don't get all "you people are way too into this" on me...

That's okay. We all seem to be obsessed with this comic.

In fact, go read/look up a story called 'The Zahir' if you want to get an idea of what this comic does to everyone.

What isn't nice is the situation Dad and Mom are about to find themselves in.

What part of it? I might've missed some subtler implications because 8s + old-tyme= ffs, but I was pretty sure I got the general gist of it and I wasn't that surprised by anything... perhaps I was wrong O_o

ETA: Well, I was right that it was Kanaya and Eridan, so I think I got everything... not totally sure exactly what you're talking about, though XD

Yeah, the bloodlines are just ROYGBIV, with pink somewhere around violet and minus the red. Red is apparently not a normal part of the hemospectrum.

It's worth noting that really high bloods are sea dwellers, as far as can be told, and the land dwellers tend to hate the sea dwellers. A lot. Eridan garners less respect from Equius than Gamzee does for this reason, even though Equius basically worships the blood castes.

Trollmance edit:
Spoiler:
I think Vriska has been <>ing John for a bit now. She uses him to talk about things she normally doesn't, or doesn't want to at least, and is generally fairly chummy. Sounds more like an auspice's role than a matesprit, which is generally convenient for my shipping wall. Which I totally don't actually have. More than one of.

Latest:
Spoiler:
Now that is a bit surprising. I'd assumed the presence Terezi was talking about was Vriska (Thief of Light), and it was only in looking up things on the wiki that I realized the implication was that Kanaya had become a troll-vampire... which, given that the Alternians generally can't take their sunlight, probably means they're creatures of the day instead! Which, given the last panels, implies... Kanaya's alive, and doing something that involves sucking people's blood but not apparently killing them? Kanaya pulling a heel-turn would break my heart a bit, but if that's not what she's doing... then... :D :D

What can I say, I like Kanaya. I like her personality, and I can sort of feel her social situation right around now-- friend to everyone, even people she really shouldn't be, getting over an impossible and idiotic crush.

Mmm, so much happier after the Vriska pennies finally dropped. :)

Welp. I have no idea how the the Kanaya situation and the Vriska vs. Gamzee vs. Eriden battle will go.

Also, Gamzee seems to be collecting trophies from his victims. Which would make him horrifying in theory but harlious in practice

I really should be working right now, but somehow I don't have the energy.

You're thinking of Equius, man.

Eriden is the evil Hipster Aquatic Harry Potter with the glowwy wand.

Agreed.

This moment made me LOL for reals. It is the funniest thing that has happened in the entire webcomic, and that includes the 'Give her the Bunny' sequence.

EDIT:

Spoiler:

Welp.

Karma came back to bite Eriden in the ass hard.
