It's kind of silly to have a personality test when we're not even sure what these all mean exactly.

I started reading about the time that Jade entered the medium. And I kinda stopped reading when they introduced those other kids. I just kind of fell out of it. I really like Homestuck, and I've been trying to read up more.

Act 6? I love the alpha kids! They're pretty awesome.

Also, to add to the awesomeness of there being three furries, there's also a brony now. How cool is that? ^_^

Anything you need explained? I won't pretend I understand everything that's going on but I probably know more than most.

Well, I've only read two or three pages past the beginning of Act 6, so that would be a lot of explaining.

But if you had the time, a summary would be so awesome.

A summary of what? Other than the pages you haven't gotten to yet which would be silly to summarize?

And besides, the idea of summarizing Homestuck is so ridiculous now that the last few times it's come up, Hussie has pretty much given up

I find it hilarious that this is the first thread I saw after returning from spending a while on the MSPA forums.

I originally started reading homestuck because I kept seeing references to it everywhere, and wondered what all the fuss was about. I liked it immediately, and I'm pretty sure I read the entire archive in just a couple days.

Well, it was during the holidays and I had nothing else to do. I did a pretty awful job at reading it, anyway. I'm going to have to go back though and pick up all the stuff I managed to miss.

Such as when the trolls take center stage! I like the trolls, but they had to grow on me first. So originally I'm forced to go through a bunch of characters I have no attachment to, with a lot of text. Hard-to-read text. So stuff slips through the cracks a lot.

It took me a good 5 weeks(but at least 3 of these I was also reading another web-comic) I think. at one point I had one of Rose's walk-throughs sitting in my browser tabs for a few days.

Random thing I noticed:

Aradia attempted to kill Vriska
Tavros was killed by Vriska
Eridan attempted to kill Sollux
Nepeta attempted to kill Gamzee.
Nepeta was killed by Gamzee.
Eridan attempted to kill Kanaya.
Eridan was killed by Kanaya.
Vriska was killed by Terezi
Equius was killed by Gamzee.
Feferi was killed by Eridan.

The only living troll who never attempted to kill another troll and never survived a murder attempt was Karkat of all people.

Well hey while you're noticing that, have you also noticed that

The summoner was destined to kill Mindfang (probably successful).
Vriska killed Tavros.
Mindfang killed Redglare.
Terezi killed Vriska.
Dualscar killed Mindfang's "lowblooded" slave (probably the Dolorosa)
Kanaya killed Eridan

Interesting to note who else killed who (sollux doesn't count, what with having three lives, two of which ended in other ways than murder – remember that his ancestor died in the vast glub too, fitting in with the duality theme). Perhaps it goes in a similar way? Eridan killed Feferi; perhaps the Condesce ordered Dualscar's death. Then again, Gamzee killed both Nepeta and Equius, and I can't see how that could have worked with the ancestors. I mean, the Disciple was busy sitting in a cave writing crap down, and Darkleer was all boo-hoo-hoo-i-got-banished...

The Dolorosa is a jade blood, isn't she? That's actually in the top half of the spectrum. I mean, Mindfang would probably consider it low, it's a couple places below herself, but would someone that high end up in the slave trade in the first place?

Yes, which is shown quite explicitly from the fact it was specifically said that the Dolorosa was traded into slavery. Derp.

Mindfang was surprised by the colour of the blood of the slave she was playing 'games' with in her journal; it could either have been her being surprised that someone so lowblooded was so attractive, or it could have been her surprised that someone so highblooded was a slave. There's no real indication. When it comes to the potential for being Dolorosa, heck, both could work. Jade blood is an incredibly rare caste and compared to Vriska she is a tad muddy. That said, to Dualscar she would most definitely be lowblooded, because I mean, to Dualscar pretty much everyone is a lowblood!

None of the above because you don't capitalize the first word.

draconianDitto is advised against due to the existence of Draconian Dignitary.

Unfortunately for the other three, all those words are fairly normal. Usually at least one is unusual, though ghostlyTrickster is fairly normal.

Oh God uranianUmbra, please talk more! Every time she talks we learn things and I'm curious! She's very meta, and I like that.

I wanna read her fanfiction. 8B (Unless I... don't. *shivers*)

Well it's romantic. We don't know if it's romantic or "romantic."

Also, she says things like "coloUr." How can't she be British? Also, fun fact: Karkat has mutant blood, so there's a spot on the hemospectrum not represented by the main trolls. Andrew Hussie has confirmed that they're called "lime bloods." And UU is kind of limey, so... ;P

I'm also wondering how Complacency of the Learned is involved with UU. It's obvious they're related, but does that mean UU is evil?

Also who is her fellow player?

UU is such an interesting character. I must know more!

Ah, the Sign of The Signless. It's possible it still means the same thing. Or perhaps UU is a different-universe version of The Sufferer. Also, look at it symbolically. The Sign of the Signless represents the shackles put on The Sufferer. If the 6 and the 9 were separated, then his arms would be freed. Perhaps that's a symbol for freedom or defied destiny?
