“what the FUCK is a homestuck” is honestly a joke that only becomes funnier the further removed we become from the time period in which homestuck was ubiquitous

  • What she says: I'm fine
  • What she means: Unwanted Free Ugly Troll has the most hits out of any Homestuck fan fiction on the entirety of AO3. It is exceedingly well-known and well read, with many, many works of fanart and spinoff fics, so many that people have literally read Homestuck just because they read UFUT first and got attached. However, UFUT has some absurd ships in it, nominally but not limited to pale CroDave. How did this happen? How did a petstuck fic with no tagged ships and stuff like pale CroDave and two Feferis and vet!Equius manage to become the champion of Homestuck fics on AO3, with just short of 200,000 hits? Obviously it's ASTOUNDING writing with excellent characterization and plot, I don't doubt that it deserves the recognition it has got, but how did it accomplish it? What was the cosmic alignment that allowed it to become the most viewed Homestuck fic on AO3?
