Okay, so some people may be on their knees thanking the heavens that homestuck will be over. But let me tell you a thing friend. For a lot of younger people, or people who didn’t join homestuck in it’s ‘glory days’ to experience all the fun and chaotic times, it almost seems as if they’ve JUST joined and the party’s already over. (keeping it real, it takes a few years to even process the fandom to even completely enjoy it.) Older fans have seen the octopimp videos, CASCADE (live, might i say), the crazy sea of cosplayers and panels at cons, the rush to cosplay a new kid or character in general, the relief of HOMESTUCK NEVER ENDING, HMM?? and just have seen the fandom at its top peak, being one giant family and having to see all of the ‘fabled’ stories now, for themselves. Younger fans cant drive to cons so easily, go to meetups (if you can even find any near you) can’t witness any of the hype it all used to be, can’t fight through a sea of grey assholes at a con, and faygo night runs?? Good luck. Sure you can be like “hiveswap is still a thing and homestuck will never fade away,” hey, I completely agree! But the fact that there’ll be a definite ending, no more predictions or crossing your fingers for your headcanon to come true, no more live updates, heck maybe the fandom will get smaller and quieter, and frankly, I’m sad
When did you start reading Homestuck, and what was your experience with it?
