[Caution: spoilers as fuck]
Okay, so there’s some hype with the Caliborn’s juju. The home-shaped one. Everyone is freaking out like “now we FINALLY KNOW the meaning of the title!!!1″.
And I’m like-wait, but you knew it since the beginning? I mean, when I started reading HS, as a totes newbie, I was certain that the title refers to the fact that a huge fucking lot of panels describes them, trying to get out of their houses. So they are HOMEstuck. (I mean, really, that was like 2000 panels).
And now the juju thing happened and something occurred to me.
The “actual-home-stuck” part of HS was narrated like a kind of silly video game. And then, the further it got from being stuck in the house, the RPGesque traits started to fade, like the sylladex or necessity to use chats to communicate.
So what if, just WHAT IF
They were in the juju all along?
Y’all wandering how the inside of the juju looks like - but what if it’s not only a prison, but a paradox-space-bending entity (which would also explain retcon powers in another way) which sent Beta kids ALL THE WAY TO THE BEGINNING.
The juju is the game. The juju is Homestuck. And just as you beat the final boss… You get to REPLAY IT.
