Hello! Ive been wondering this for a while: why are there two versions of the same character in homestuck? Or is it like, siblings?
The answer off the top of my head is that, in Homestuck, we start out in one universe, and then the characters in it bring about “The Scratch” and reset the entire thing, and in the new one everything’s been shuffled around to be different. So, every [sic] character’s got a pre- and post-Scratch version, one for how they were in each Universe. (The pre-Scratch kids who survive the transfer do so by sidestepping the Scratch process in various ways).
