    With the gigaupdate just around the corner, I figured now would probably be as good a time as any to start up a general Homestuck thread.

    Any other fans excitedly awaiting the spoilers they will inevitably see before the upd8?

    Edit because apparently this topic post was way too inside:
    Homestuck is a webcomic of record-setting length which tells the story of four kids from earth who try to play a videogame together and end up entwined in an intricate plot involving the destruction of several universes. After years of ruthless updating (currently the most updates in a single 10-day period is 111 panels), the comic went on an indefinite hiatus (gigapause) one year ago while the creator finished the rest of the comic and worked on other projects. Today/tomorrow, the comic will begin to update again, so I thought I'd post a hype thread.

    I thought this thread was going to about someone stuck at home trying to map but feeling like trash because everything they made was garbage.

    Clearly that is not the subject, but I have no idea what is.

    Meh, I lost interest long back when the trolls were popping up as playable* characters. Is it even worth going back to reading it again? Is there an end story arc in site?

    That's why everyone is so excited about the end of the gigapause... everything left to come is the climax and final conclusion. The last act of the story.

    The troll stuff starting was indeed a big hump to get over, it felt like an arbitrary "rebooting" of the comic and losing all the stuff you knew/liked, but it really all started coming together as that moved on, and then after it. Arguably the most amazing parts of the presentation and plot reside after that point.

    Yes the end is nigh. It has been on hold for a year while he worked on other stuff (kickstarted game) and planned out the ending.

    Had any of you been interested in catching up... a little late. A few months ago would have been ideal but now we are probably at the point that before you got caught up the end of it will have arrived, unless you read through it obsessively... which I would guess not if you have given up on it once before.

    Seeing as I never tumblr and am pretty much nowhere that spoilers would exist... I shant be spoiled.

    Then what was the whole thing with having two sets of trolls and all that?

    See, to me it just sounds like Hussie kept spinning new stuff because he could, not because he had planned it from the start.

    At the beginning? Sure. I'm pretty sure by the time the second trolls showed up (even much earlier), he had a heck of a lot of forward planning going on, even if it was vague.
