History

Homestuck^2: Beyond Canon released on October 25th, 2019.[1] The FAQ section on the website for the comic states, Homestuck is an official continuation of the series, but also will feature contributions from fans.[2] The story has been laid out by Hussie but is open to being changed based on input from fans. Describing the project, the FAQ states:

It is actual Homestuck. That is, an extension to the "canonical" Homestuck storyline, beginning immediately after the Homestuck Epilogues, conceived and produced by Andrew Hussie and What Pumpkin. But it is also a fan work! It was designed to include the writing and art contributions from fans of the series. Many writers will be involved, and collectively they will be allowed significant latitude in shaping the direction of the story and the way it's told. "Beyond Canon" is what it sounds like – it's a legitimate continuation of the series, and simultaneously a departure from conventional ideas when it comes to what we think of as canon, or any authoritative expansion on a work of fiction. It will continue with themes established in the epilogues involving the blurring of lines between what is considered authoritative about media, and the elaboration on said media by groups of empowered fans. An "official fanonization" of the ongoing epic, if you will.
