Homestuck Tips for First Time Readers:

  • Act 3 is when it starts getting good during your first read
  • The pesterlogs are long, but they’re important
  • The Midnight Crew intermission is also important, but not enjoyable the first time you read it, especially if you have trouble following circular time travel plots.  It’s much funnier the second time around, I promise
  • The Exiles are not enjoyable the first time.  They grow on you, don’t worry (and they’re funnier during Read #2)
  • When you reach Act 5 and meet the trolls, you may become irrationally angry that you just got used to the 4 kids and now you have to meet and like 12 more characters?  Fuck this and fuck you Hussie I’m not reading this comic anymore these feelings are normal and expected
  • Take your time with the interactive games, they’re full of easter eggs that are plot relevant
  • Sometimes Hussie just fucks with you
  • Have fun and go at your own pace
