Ok so, I joined the Homestuck fandom like right when the gigapause started. I found this facebook like website called ‘Gigapause’. Little 13 year old me was so fucking excited to have a nerd outlet. It was a really well put together website too, there were achievements, friends, different profile types (RP or regular).
But unfortunately, the site was…not very secure.
One glorious, fateful day….a hacker made their way into the site. They replaced the site’s logo with the word ‘ANUSPAUSE’ and a picture of a really, really weird fantroll (To this day I can’t find pictures of it, if someone out there remembers this…please give me the picture.)
The hacker made it so everyone’s accounts just began posting the fantroll with the caption ‘anuspause’ over and over. Some people only posted it once, some people posted it 20 times. No one could control anything.
BUT THEN….WE FOUND THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PART OF THIS HACK…
HUNDREDS OF USERS FLOCKED TO THEIR PROFILES TO SEE…
THIS HACKER FUCKED UP EVERYONE’S PROFILES SO THEY WERE INCESSANTLY SPINNING.
This person essentially made the site unusable for about an hour. So we watched on, as the staff, in horror, attempted to fix what went wrong.
Hi! Im moon, believe it or not i didn’t start fantrolling on tumblr, or a forum. i actually started on a website called “Gigapause” a couple of years back. The website came to tumbling finish and i was only able to scrape up 2 friends. the rest slipped through my fingers. Gigapause then converted to Hivetale, which was much more sparse.
Gigapause was a start to my art career, long time friendship and involvement in the fantroll community. Hivetale was also a large part of it.
If you were an active member of Gigapause.com or hivetale send me a msg, and try to reblog this to spread it around a lil, give a lil honey, to this herbal brew <3 <3
Your name is THE ARTIST, and boy have you been excited about such a HELLA strip!
So I had several really nice .gifs for this one, but tumblr wouldn’t let me upload them no matter how much I compressed them or toned down their crazy colors. I’m at least happy that I got the second one to work, even if the quality’s shot because of it. I also apologize in advance for the buildings. I just didn’t know what else to do with them…
