It has come to my attention that some of the newer Homestucks, and even some of the long time ones, are still having a bit of trouble understanding the relationships between the Alpha and Beta human kids, and even more confusingly, the relationships between the Alternian and Beforan trolls.
So I spent the past two hours making a couple of simple diagrams to explain the genetic and familial relationships between these groups. Hopefully this can clear up some confusion, and make it easier for all of us to understand what we’re talking about with these confusing teens.
When we all know what’s going on, it’s a lot easier to make theories, fan art, fan fictions, and roleplays that we can all enjoy.
If you see any misspellings, or have a legitimate reason you think I am wrong about something in either chart, please let me know.
