one of the things i thought before reading homestuck but this is the only one i personally will make. any others will be on beforeireadhomestuck when they start taking submissions and requests again.
to explain: before i read homestuck, not counting my moirail who urged me alot to read it, the only real exposure i got to homestuck was the posts of the homestuck fandom agreeing that the webcomic sucked. i dunno whether it was suppose to be irony or not but it literally made me think that it wasn’t something i would like. only after seeing some fantrolls on DA, did i decide to give it a read. boy did it take forever, mostly cause i didn’t focus and would get distracted by my other obsessions.
i was and technically still am very depressed and self destructive but this webcomic was an escape that had so many wonderful, and sometimes horrible, characters that i could connect to and obsess over so i could forget all the things that made me numb and self destructive.
so while i do sometimes reblog things that mention how homestuck fans would agree that the comic sucks, to me it is the best thing that i have and to me it doesn’t suck in the slightest. I LOVE HOMESTUCK.
I’m pretty sure that beforeireadhomestuck has a giant queue, so I figured I’d just do my own. But before I read Homestuck, someone told me ‘the trolls were secretly behind everything’, which I took very literally.
So for the longest time, I thought Vriska and Karkat were tiny and lived behind John’s furniture.

“Before I read Homestuck” is a confession style blog that collects stories of what people thought about Homestuck before they started reading it. I thought there were some great stories and interesting plots and fanfics needed to be written about them. Feel free to submit your stories with a link to the post on beforeireadhomestuck that inspired it.
