Seeking Answers from the Homestuck Community
I’m writing about the Homestuck fandom, its growth, and the Homestuck Kickstarter’s success, as examined through the lens of Malcolm Gladwell’s book,The Tipping Point.
The trouble is, as the fandom is spread far and wide across the internet, it’s hard for me to get much information about when and why people joined the Homestuck ranks.
It would be a tremendous help to me (and my grade!) if you could take a moment to reply to one or more of the questions below, either by reblogging with a comment so other homestucks can see, or dropping a note in my ask box.
- About how long have you been reading Homestuck/been part of the Homestuck fandom?
- What caused you to start reading Homestuck?
- What was your initial reaction to Homestuck? Has that reaction changed over time?
Thank you in advance to anyone kind enough to reply!
“If you look at the careers of great entrepreneurs and you look at the moment they took their plunge, the plunge is rarely a great financial or material risk, it's a social risk. At the moment they started their new businesses, everyone around them said 'you're an idiot'.”—
