I know Radiation did a mashup thing with some anime song while the hiatus was on, and got a question or two like "IS THIS THE EOA5 FLASH MUSIC" and his response was "what in the gently caress possibly gave you that idea, jesus."


People think some stupid stuff. Someone out of nowhere asked if I was doing voice acting for the EoA, I jokingly said yes, and people believed it long after I stated that it was a joke.

Then, weeks later, Octopimp joked that he was voice acting in the EoA, despite the joke already being deader than a horse at a dogfood-and-glue-factory being beaten by a broom with a chainsaw on the end. And people believed it.

Anyway, I'm pretty excited for the EoA!

I'm going to have to go look for the mashup you're talking about now. Homestuck fans in their native habitat are pretty hilarious to watch

Yeah, if you find that defnitely post it. Just thinking about it reminds me of this.

They might be doing it to stop Sburb from "reseeding" the world, which destines it for destruction all over again as soon as the world is restored enough to tolerate it.

Of course, this is iffy since the universe is already on the brink of cancer death/Bec Noir murder.

At this point I think EOA5 will be either the Homestuck equivalent of a Metal Gear Solid cutscene or the most massive walkaround flash.

Maybe both...

A jeez I was going to link to the mashup but I forgot! In any case it's here though most of the funniest posts about it weren't as notes on the post itself. It seems that since I last looked at the notes more people have gotten the joke, which is comforting.

So since you have insider information, tell me this:

On a scale of one to ten, how many bricks am I going to poo poo after the EoA?

Thirty seven.

Also since the thread's here, and letting this gem get drowned out when EoA5 gets released, I might as well post it now. It was posted in the fanart thread but not as many people read that at all.

The homestuck fanmusicians made a Jailbreak album! It's all chiptunes

http://homestuckgaiden.bandcamp.com...jailbreak-vol-1

First two tracks aren't too amazing, but everything from then on is great. There's a fair few bonus tracks for downloading it (it's free, just type 0.00 for the price!), and my favorite tracks are Title Screen, Assail, and Jackknive. Either way go listen to it while we wait for the flash.

So hey, I just wanna say that I called the EoA being dropped on 10/25 just for the sake of it being on 10/25, but people shot it down because Hussie didn't care about hitting "special date" deadlines in the past.

Anyway welcome back MSPA thread I missed you.

In theory Hussie will start another MSPaint Adventure for everyone to be obsessed about, even greater than the last.

I'll miss it too. Especially the fact that my birthday is an important number, I got Past Karkat: Wake up last year and am getting the EoA this year. But birthday update chat always ends up being horrible so let's not talk about that anymore.

On the bright side, Andrew has said that Homestuck itself is a precursor to another thing, like Problem Sleuth was to Homestuck. Not sure if that thing will be another adventure or not, but I'll look forward to it anyways.

That's horrible. You're horrible.

Obviously when Homestuck ends (a good six or seven months from now), Hussie will immediately begin posting his next Magnum Opus, and it will be so wonderful all memory of Homestuck will be stricken from our minds.

Well, if the bull owned the china shop.


The entire internet is going to crash on Tuesday.

You won't know about 10/25 from your MSPA updater, don't even try. You're going to know it happened when your ISP suffers a catastrophic explosion.

Some will be thought to be freak accidents. But no, that's ridiculous, nothing that ISPs normally handle would be that volatile.

Then there's the terrorist accusations; in theory that makes more sense, at least logistically. But why? Why would terrorists stage a calculated, worldwide attack on every single service provider? It just doesn't make sense. Of course, this gap in logic doesn't stop governments - fingers are pointed, accusations made, and before you know it there's three separate wars going on at once about an act nobody has proof of.

Those of us who know what happened, that it was simply the world's biggest unintended DDoS attack, strong enough to obliterate global communications completely and totally? Do you really think they'd listen to such a ridiculous claim? That the internet was destroyed because a bunch of nerds wanted to know who wears a big green coat?

Nobody will believe that we were witness to this, men. To see the releasing of the red balloons that began the apocalypse. But we will know. And while the world will not believe us, we will be resolute in our personal knowledge that we were there.

Right?

I got into Homestuck last November, so hearing that the end is in sight makes me incredibly sad. It's only been about eleven and a half months since I started reading it and we're already in the endgame, it's like catching up on a show you've heard so many great things about right in the middle of its final season. If I had stuck with MSPA back after Problem Sleuth had ended my life would have been so much different. Seriously.

There's going to be an Act 6 and an Act 7, right? I know Hussie's said that 6 is going to not be nearly as long as 5, and 7's going to be fairly miniscule, but how long does everybody think each one is going to be?

Act 6 will probably be as long as act 4 and act 7 will probably balloon to the size of act 5 part 2

STAY UNRULY, YOU HEARTLESS MONSTERS!


Hussie's stated before that Act 7 will be an epilogue, so Act 6 will most likely be the climactic finale. Also we should note that saying 6 is not going to be as long as 5 is incredibly slippery, given how long 5 was, and Hussie's plans have certainly outrun him before. (See: majority of the comic up to this point.)

Flash speculation: Jade goes God Tier via her Spriteself, becoming a specimen of anthropomorphic fauna, just as she always dreamed. Recognizing Lord English as a bug (glitch) in the system of Sburb, she eats him and doesn't even care.

Although honestly we've got like a 20% chance of the flash just being the word "PSYCHE" fifty times, and then "THE END" and that's it for Homestuck.

Remember doc scratch said that there are two ways to ascend to god tier. Someone or someones will be going god tier in this flash. Potentially all kids/trolls by the time the comic ends, judging from the WP finery site.
