I wonder of the pspace writer was expecting everyone to be this fucking sad about how the comic ended. I wasn’t expecting to have “people don’t like spending time with Terezi” be a punchline twice in such a short period of time, but.
It really is staggering.
I mean, I get the joke, sure.
But just look at this.
Everyone at the table got up and walked out on her. I can’t imagine she would be such a stickler for rules if she hadn’t put a lot of work into this campaign, but as far as speculation goes, there’s no reason to be too generous with Terezi here. Everyone stands up and leaves in an implicit judgement of her hobbies, and her, and a direct condemnation of the effort she bothered to put into this game— but then Karkat turns around later on and is like “but why didn’t you just talk to me? You know I care about how you feel!!”
Paradox space may be dubious canon, but you can’t just ignore the context that surrounds it. Terezi is being trampled both physically and emotionally. A lonely, isolated character who is going through severe bouts of self-doubt and self-hatred, and the punchline to this comic is “ha ha, no one wants to be around THAT mess!” Whether or not it was meant to be interpreted that way, that’s the clear message: Our last shot is of a despondent Terezi sitting alone with a flabbergasted look on her face as, I emphasize, absolutely everyone leaves without even addressing her. And shut the light off while she’s in there.
It would be like having a comic where Rose throws up over the front of her dress and passes out with a bottle of alchemized liquor in her hand, and then the other characters can be like, “god, what a downer! This sure is a waste of time!” Or maybe one where Jake English is repeatedly touched without his consent while everyone talks about how attractive he is, and then laugh as he gets increasingly uncomfortable and he starts crying.
Homestuck may be irreverent and morbid, but some shit isn’t funny.
