PLEASE WATCH THE CREDITS FOR EXTRA INFORMATION!!

I’ve been working on this since March of 2013, so it’s been a long time coming! You can see more about it by browsing the posts here.

This is an animated music video for the Alternian ancestors–characters in the webcomic Homestuck whose epic story is only ever relayed via exposition. This gave me plenty of leeway for creativity, but I did my best to stay as true to what we’re told as possible and I hope you enjoy it!

Kankri: Who broke the coffee pot? I’m not mad, I just want to know.
Latula: I did. I broke it.
Kankri: No. No you didn’t. Cronus?
Cronus: Don’t look at me, look at Mituna.
Mituna: What?! I didn’t break it!
Cronus: Huh, that’s weird. How’d you even know it was broken?
Mituna: Because it’s– sitting right in front of us– and it’s broken!
Cronus: Suspicious.
Mituna: No it’s not!!!!!
Aranea: If it matters, probably not… Damara was the last one to use it.
Damara: Liar! I don’t even drink that crap!
Aranea: Oh, really? Then what were you doing by the coffee cart earlier?

Kankri: No! Who broke it!?
