problem sleuth reference

arsonsara  asked:

“You can’t overthink the time shit” and “While I fondly regard crustaceans”. Not only is it amazing that you wrote an entire language for this AU, but you also made sure to add Intermission and Problem Sleuth references along with it. Incredible.

I am an ABSOLUTE MADWOMAN and I love Problem Sleuth AND the Intermission and so I made phrases from it common idioms

How to tell if someone is a Secret Homestuck: an Actual guide

  • very vague knowledge of data structures
  • “I like Megalovania but not Sans”
  • has philosophical opinions about multiverse theory
  • vehemently hates/rips on Guy Fieri but has no receipts
  • “Was that a Problem Sleuth reference?” “What? I don’t think so.”
  • their “the signs as” posts always start with Aries
  • they know, offhand, that barbasol is flammable
  • think they know who Bing Crosby is, panic when they realize they don’t know who Bing Crosby is

Feel free to add things from your own experience identifying Suspected Homestucks

OH MY GOD I JUST REALIZED THE ENTIRETY OF ACT 7 WAS A PROBLEM SLEUTH REFERENCE.

USING A BLACKHOLE TO WEAKEN THE FINAL BOSS.

REALITY FALLING APART 

THE BOSS GETTING A LEGENDARY ITEM THAT GRANTS THEM OMNIPOTENCE AND BEING COMPLETELY IMPOSSIBLE TO BEAT.

THE INADVERTENT USAGE OF ELABORATE SPATIAL MECHANICS AND RELATIVE TIME TO REACH A CRITICAL MOMENT WHERE THE BOSS IN VULNERABLE.

A BEACON THAT HARKENS THE ARRIVAL OF A POWERFUL CHARACTER TO GREATLY WEAKEN AN OTHERWISE IMPOSSIBLE-TO-DEFEAT BOSS (THE CHARACTER HAVING BEEN WAITING A RELATIVE ETERNITY FOR THE CHANCE TO USE THIS POWER). SAID CHARACTER FADES FROM EXISTENCE AFTER THIS.

THE DOOR.

THE SPECIAL KEY FOR FREEDOM HIDDEN BY THE BOSS.

THE “THANKS FOR PLAYING”. 

Other Thoughts about MS Paint Adventures

Caveats: if you respond to any of these musings with “well yeah, that’s because <insert the reasoning I must also have used to get here>” or “you only just started thinking about this???!?!!” I’m not even going to answer. These aren’t realizations or exciting fandom theories submitted for appraisal, just thoughts.

I don’t think of Hussie as a flawless genius–while his writing style is definitely unique, that doesn’t make it inherently better.  But I’m fascinated by the mystery of his brain.

This is my Homestuck Ending Bingo Card! Template by traceexcalibur.

It’s in the Light colors, because my aspect is probably Light and so that the heroes all have extra luck in the update.

I might re-arrange some of the items later, so that the organization makes a little more sense. However, I’m keeping all of the entries, no matter how weird some of them might be.

Text under the cut, for vision impaired readers or in case this color scheme hurts your eyes.
