Then how do they know about her history with douchebags? That doesnt really seem like the sort of thing erisolsprite would go into depth on.

Okay, I don’t ussually enguage with with the Homestuck fandom… and this is probabky a newb question; being an “on again, off again” reader…

But… Has anyone thought to question a few facts about Lord English/Caliborn in the face of… Doctor Who?

Caliborn: Lord of Time
The Doctor: Time Lord

Lord English: Flies through space in a Box (Sarcophogas) that changes form
The Doctor: Travels through Space in a Box (Police Box) That sometimes changes form

Lord English: Uses a wand like Instrument on occasion.
The Doctor: Uses a Mechanical Wand like Instument

Lord English: Regenerates from the body of another being after their death.
The Doctor: Regenerates in a new form each time he dies, describes it as another person taking off with his memories and life.

Lord English: Garishly Colored Scarf and Overcoat.
The Doctor: Odd Colored Scarf and Overcoat.

Caliborn: Currently the only of his kind, and his planet is dead.
The Doctor: His planet is as good as dead… He acts as if he’s the last of his kind.

… Because you guys are so fanatical… I assume you’ve already come to this, and I can crawl back to my hole without fear of everyone freaking out.

…If not…

…Well, I’ll just crawl back to my hole anyways, I have other stuff to do.

Edit: oh yeah, One more! “Doc” Scratch… The Doctor?

@ZeroBlue4
Yeah, it’s pretty obvious that some aspects of Caliborn/LE are references to Doctor Who, but I don’t really think Doc Scratch is a reference. He’s called that because he’s literally the scratch doctor.

Hamsteak Update. Don’t bother checking it out yet, because the flood of people killed the site once again.

Goddamn it MSpaint adventures is still down.
And it was just a regular update too. I mean the last I saw was Caliborn being a dick. Just a few regular text logs.
It’s not like we were anticipating anything, we need to buy Hussie a better server.

Edit: I actually got to see the update last night, apparently. Thought there might have been something more.
And social justice chucklefucks are freaking out because Caliborn said something MEAN. I mean you do realize he’s a sadistic murderer. Lord help us if bad guys exist.

Hussie got over 2 million, I’m sure the fandom won’t mind 1k of that being used to buy a good server.

I got to read the update, but it died right before I got to see Caliborn’s latest abortion “masterpiece”.

Seriously though how can one regular update, in a period of regular updates, crash the site for a day?
He’s probably having server trouble.

The Homestuck reddit has just provided us with salvation – There is a post linking to screencaps of the update we couldn’t see.

Oh dear GOD, Caliborn! (You can tell how disgusted I am with him because I did not type ‘gog’ or refer to Suwako.)

So we knew he was both evil and creepy, and yet we’re actually shocked?

@TARDISES

Links please.


Also I’m agreeing with MDF that it’s most likely a technical failure on the servers part. Updates don’t cause traffic to exceed the servers limits unless there was some BIG NEWS for everyone to tune into (was there?)

Even then, a failure caused by traffic overflow is usually fixed in a day.

Site’s back. guys.

This is my third time posting it. (First time was too soon after a previous post, the second got eaten up by Virgin Media’s service being ****ty.)

I think caliborns a special snowflake. The only thing I got from the update is that caliborn does enjoy a meaty bitch.

Dec 08, 2012 at 11:27PM EST


Oh Caliborn. I hate you more and more with every update there is about you.

Dec 09, 2012 at 10:35AM EST

There’s an AU going around Tumblr called “Ke$hastuck”. There’s nothing really coherent about it, besides the fact that it focuses on singers playing Sburb. It’s really sweeping the fandom away for the most part.

I’m finally caught up with Homestuck

Also Caliborn earns all my hate right now.

Oh dear… I was just reading back through the archive, when I found this:

TG: thats what im doing here im making a point of makin every little thing take place what was once mentioned in passing no matter how seemingly trivial or pointless
TG: thats how all the best adventures get strung together
TG: you havent heard me bleat like a goat for ironically humorous purposes yet have you
GC: NO!!! >:o
TG: that was something that was mentioned at some point by someone i forget when or why

Later, Dirk Strider’s Robot from the Post-Scratch Timeline did exactly this.

Hands up if people already knew this.

In other news, my participation in this thread is now “Stuff I found that I’m wondering if others found, because I’m kinda late to this thing.”

It’s a running joke that was being followed up. Read Dave’s introduction pages.

Wow this is a sad update. Now I’m starting to wonder why people even like Caliborn. :/

Can you lower the emotional caps posts a bit? It’s nice that you are so deep into Homestuck, but 10+ posts per page on how you feel can become annoying. This is still a thread, not a chat (nor are we Tumblr, knowing the regular emotions there each update).

So I guess we don’t get to see Jane cry more and instead it cuts away to the Draconian Dignitary. Interesting on how their session is more bassed on politics while the betas were more focused on progressing to skaia. Then again only so much can happen in a void session.

Dec 09, 2012 at 10:50PM EST

Guys, I just had my first moment of truly uncontrollable laughter. Like… somewhere into act 6 somewhere.

Is that normal?

Also, is it normal that it involved Dave and Karkat?

And a Book?

This session’s WQ is the best for just trying to humiliate the Condesce through these negotiations.

Why do I suddenly get the feeling that the whole “Complacency of the Learned” isn’t just one aspect of the plot, it covers a lot of them. And also makes me think of some possible future analogues.

A Wizard vs Wizard Scenario where an androgynous Anti-Hero/Antagonist beats the Unbeaten?

From one side, that’s Calliope being unbeaten at literal Chess. While on the other side, it’s that Lord English is unbeaten at “Wrecking stuff up”.

So perhaps, as some bit of desperation, Calliope’s Ghost switches around Jake and Jane via an illusion, while Jane Dies on her Prospit quest bed, and Jake gets to shoot Lord English in the Back.

Also, maybe Rose gets clonked on the head with that “Game Walk-through” book at some stage, giving her a temporary death that mirrors Friglish, as these things are probably going to come in pairs, considering the whole “Friglish the cat” being crushed already.

Maybe Rose goes Grim-Dark again, and that’s how they snap her out of it… Again. But before that, at some point she makes some “Incoherent” stuff than would make her sound like she’s introducing herself to another as “Friglish”. And then they clonk her on the head with her book, she comes back, no worries.

Lets see how many Wild guesses you guys can get.

The Condesce is really like a grown-up Meenah. That makes her so much more likeable.

So not only do we get to see (a) Dad type in real time, we get to see the Condesce type in real time!?!?!? One of the best updates ever.

At least before the last update. When she takes the form of her fantroll, she gains the blank white eyes of deadness.
