Does anyone have the foggiest clue what Jake is even saying? I mean, he looks like he's in complete agony, and yet he goes spouting out all these weird, nonsense phrases...
And why do you think that Jade can't penetrate the hope field? It would kind of make sense if she was of the Void or Rage or something, but Space? :? It doesn't make sense to me.
Ding, dong, the witch is dead. *snicker* The fact that the clock chimed just made me lol because of that line.
But I legitimately freaked out until I realized that Jane could bring her back. @ o@ But if she does come back, won't the Condesce just turn her grimbark again?
Jade's death was about to be neither just nor heroic, but Aranea made it so that it became just.
This is to say Jade is now dead-dead.
I gotta say, tho, I'm getting frustrated over Aranea's behaviour, is this really necessary to stop Lord English?
And yes, she'll be back, I know it, Hussie will get around it in time. And I'm actually curious as to how the story will develop onwards. Aranea sure is wrecking stuff up :o

Yeah, what is the deal with Aranea? :( I used to like her, or at least half-like her. But now... I guess she wasn't mean to Jake when he freaked out, so she's not evil bad like Vriska could have been. But she sure is weird. It would have been so cool if Meenah came back to life instead :3
Imagine if Meenah came back to life and her and the Condesce met. o: Do you think Aranea will have any conflict if she meets the Condesce, considering her relationship status with Meenah?
Also, totally ship Roxy x Aranea in spades now. > u>; Whoops.
Haha, yeah maybe. I think Meenah only likes Aranea because of their extensive history as outcasts from the rest of the group, pretty much though. So Aranea and the Condesce probably wouldn't have much to bond over.
@Rika. Disgrace her egregious patootie :P
I really can't say anything on the new update, other than the fact that it's escalating each time faster and faster and ohmygodsoawesome :o
Stuff fer Update:
Also, Brain Ghost Dirk is now real. I assume that implies that hope powers can materialize objects/people/something their user 'believes in' as Dirk so ironically commented? Similar to how Roxy can also make stuff appear out of thin air with her Voidey powers? I dunno, this keeps getting more and more confusing xD

Also, the dog duo is more loyal to Jade than they are to fighting each other? I mean, in PM's case. I had forgotten that she too will have feelings for Jade now that she is prototyped.
I expected so much more drama when the two of them finally reached the B2 session, but this is a nice twist. And Dave facing them! He fought Bec Noir before once, and died, so I don't think he'd live long against two of them. Especially since he refuses to use Time powers nowadays.
Still think Jane can sneak her powers by and revive Jade though! But not before Jade and Calliope have had some time to talk in paradox space/deadland.
Speaking of which, why wasn't Jade's eyes empty and white there? As if she wasn't really dead, despite the clock ticking on to Justified killing, because of Aranea possibly.

==> How far have you read: The one where Aranea explains Caliborn's session
==> Answer current topic: In my most humble opinion, Hope by itself represent all that is impossible and/or extremely improbable, to contrast with my headcanon of doom representing fate and inevitability. Therefore hope powers are powers that deal with impossibilities, improbabilities and the line that separates that from its opposites.
That being said, I'm so far behind that I probably missed a bunch of Aranea / Calliope expositions on the subject ... I should probably reread the comic. I'm kinda lost and every so often someone pulls a page from their rump that was unknown to me.
Rereading the whole thing takes time and effort, you know. It seriously took me months but now I've read the whole thing up until Act 6 Act 6 twice. I think it is nice to read it twice though, at least if you've reached Act 6, because you appreciate and can smile at some things that you might not have thought about as much the first time around. Like the fact that Gamzee in an early conversation with Equius says that he shall make the latter smile if it's the last thing he does, or something. And right before Gamzee strangles Equius, the latter smiles weirdly. I didn't understand why until the second read-through. And a lot of other minor things, too. First time around, I didn't bother reading Aranea's Mindfang's long journal entries. But when I did, they were quite interesting.
Anyways, you've reached a highly confusing but certainly interesting part of the story. I can reveal that very soon, you will hopefully have a mind=blown moment. Maybe not as much as us who read that part when Hussie first created it and, hm, well did certain edits to older panels. But still.
Also, new-old topic? While we're on the subject of rereading and remembering stuff. What is your favorite, most memorable, moment in Homestuck?
Hahaha, I could totally have guessed that you'd answer that, gunner ;D
For me, the flash games where you move around in John's house and later on LOWAS when Act 4 begins were really memorable. They made me realize that Homestuck isn't just a series of pictures and chatlogs. It's a whole multimedia experiment. And also WV: Ascend is such a "wow" moment I'll never forget. When I first saw the meteor crash so long a go and realized that it was the volcano island (which we at the time really knew not much about) it was all just... Cool.
Cascade and Descend. Of course. Also Dirk: Unite and Dirk: Synchronize were pretty mindblowingawesome imo. Mostly because Dirk/Bro is the most badass and possibly smartest character in all of Homestuck.
EDIT: @ update
oh my god Jane x Dave is practically canon hahaha Hussie isn't really elegant.
Heya! First post here in the Homestuck fanclub. So, Hussie coming up with the quadrants, especially <> was kind of life changing for me, but I also love the big epic flashes, especially Caliborn: Enter. Also, pretty much everything to do with the carapaces. I love those guys.
Also, it's been a couple days. I smell a flash coming - not right away, but I think he's gonna be slowing down the regular updates while working on something bigger. Not Caliborn: Enter or MeenahQuest big, but something like Roxy: Sleepwalk or the like.
