My brother's a homestuck, so I can talk to him about it.

And yeah, Andrew Hussie is pretty darn good at world building/race building. Gotta hand it to him.
I think that's one of the reasons why it's so popular. Most people have immense trouble creating such a large universe (or multiverse) on their own, but Hussie is just such a natural at it.

EDIT: GUYS THE CURRENT UPDATE

GO READ IT

NOW

I know, I read it this morning! It's all starting to come together!

SERIOUSLY SPOILERS YOU GUYS.
So now we basically know how Caliborn became Lord English, and my theory is that this Calliope from the alternative timeline, the one that became the predominant Cherub, needs to be guided to her dead session denizen, because that is some strong foreshadowing that she is the one who will be the key in having enough power to defeat her brother.

Also, remember that thing where a player in a doomed timeline can fall asleep right before they cease to exist so when they wake back up in the alpha timeline, they have access to all previous memories from another timeline? I smell shenanigans here with Calliope, but that theory is a little half-baked and a bit more far-fetched.

This update gives credibility to my prediction long ago that Lord English would ultimately be destroyed by Calliope sacrificing herself.

And how about the fact that Dirk and Caliborn have the same denizen. This reeks of shenigans!

It was really good! I loved Eternity Served Cold when it was used in the comic and I'm glad to see there's more of it! My other favorite was Carne Vale.

He and I talked about Homestuck last Saturday! He doesn't want to read it because he hasn't been able to get into it. I'm working on changing that though. X3

Also, Sleet, check your Facebook please! I sent you something! :P

I've been reading almost non-stop for about three weeks and I have dreaded this day, where I would finally catch up to his latest update. I have to say though, AH's ability to dish out several pages every day is great. And a change in pace from most webcomics.

Hussie was a God Tiered Waste of Space, he can't die unless it's heroic or just... Come to think of it Hussie kills so many characters that any death would be just. nevermind.

It's kinda cool that he did. At the time it just seemed like random carnage and Hussie trying to make everything confusing. Now we can see that he harassed Caliborn (to an extent) and he wanted revenge.

I'm considering reading the entire series.

This take me awhile. I should note though ~ If i ever write a book about a online game though, Homestruck is certainly the last thing I would look into for ideas, but the characters are nonetheless cool. =P

Guys, the update!

Hussie actually went back to all those original past panels and added John's arm in them. Even the flash one. If you use Google Chrome, right click on the image and open it in a new tab. Then remove the "retcon" from the URL and it will bring you back to the original, unedited image. Doesn't work for the flash though.

Haven't had much time to read up on this, but I did read act 1 so far. Loved how Rose tried clicking on the bathroom stuff and practically ripped it out and dragged it into the hallway. X3

Since Act 6 started I just haven't been able to sit down and read it. Something about it makes it seem like it would be a pain to go through everything up till now.
