    “creative direction of Homestuck creator Andrew Hussie”

    Everyone is going to die, aren’t they. More than once, too.

    • U.N. Owen

      i actually stopped reading homestuck because people DIDN’T die when they clearly should have

      i.e. the stupid deus ex machinas during Cascade

      but internet commenters are fcuking stupid

      • Jonah Paley

        You can’t call ‘em deus ex machinas when they were foreshadowed more than once beforehand, though.

        • U.N. Owen

          yea i guess youre right, plot holes aren’t actually bad at all if you mention them

          • Hatsuki

            can’t tell if sarcastic or not, not that I care either way, I gave up on Homestuck.

  • Jesse Welling

    ultimate bad ending where you fail to woo one of the characters is going to be the entire student body dying in a freak accident for no other reason other than because it’s hussie.
