    Also, And It Don't Stop was one of my favorites. It's a quick read and a bunch of fun. Is he still making Star Trek edits? I haven't watched one in forever.

    Oh my goodness, Vriska. You will always be the best troll. after Meenah


    Did you forget about the dreambubbles? She comes back briefly, and will definitely be relevant in the future. In fact, the recently-ended intermission has a fair bit of her.
    And yeah, Act 6 has been kinda weak so far, but I'm counting on it getting awesome since they all just entered the medium before the intermission.

    Yeah Vriska may be dead but she is still looking to be quite relevant.

    Moreso than some of the still-living trolls really.

    Vriska will never truly die

    She engenders white hot rage in so many people

    She is an awful person but a fantastically written character and she is perfect

    I read Homestuck up until that one page where they have the book shelf with Problem Sleuth or whatever.

    Then I read all of Problem Sleuth. It was good enough to have me keep reading it but not WOW THAT WAS SO GOOD for me to remember most of it or to want to reread it.

    Haven't read Homestuck since, other than looking at the amazing SWEET BRO AND HELLA JEFF

    I have 2 close friends addicted to homestuck, one of them is my gf, and both are actually uncomfortable to say they like it because of the weird fandom.
    I might give a try and start reading, even though I'm not really into endless comics.

    Honestly, in my experience the fandom isn't really that bad. Sure there are some dodgy people but you get those in any fandom.

    I agree, there are some overly-obsessive fans who ship everything and make terrible fanart and fics, but I'd say they're in the minority.
    And Problem Sleuth is good, but probably not as good as Homestuck imo. Its a good, short read in comparison to give you a good idea on what its like.

    I have some friends who are into this and surrounded by quite of people here who are into this. I once tried to read it. Is it some kind if interactive comic, but if course there is only one story?

    Main question: How would one get involved/into homestuck?

    It is difficult to get into Homestuck, it requires a hell of a lot of dedication. The first couple of Acts are pretty boring, but you've got to persevere through it and keep reading. By Act 5, it turns into an incredible story, with and excellent pot and characters. I don't really want to spoil anything for you, but just trust me that if you keep reading, it's worth it.

    And no, its not really an interactive comic per se. Its made in the style of old-school text adventures, but it has a one-track storyline. At the beginning, the author was taking viewer suggestions, but not anymore, just to keep control of the plot. Having said that, he is influenced by the fandom and has on occasion made popular theories canon.

    I hate you too! haha, jk Prof.

    I read the first parts and they seem interesting enough. Though I assume they just get better. Could I have a simple summary if what homestruck is about? or what I come to learn that may not be an easy request.

    "It's a story about some kids who are friends over the internet. They decide to play a game together. There are major consequences."

    Trying to explain what it's really about would be difficult and/or major spoilers. The page I just linked explains the nature of the comic fairly well though.

    edit: the trailer that page refers to is here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/14293468/homestuck-adventure-game

    I couldn't agree more.

    Act 1 - 3 = Kind of boring the first time around
    Act 4 = Ok cool, but really not worth slogging through the first 3 acts
    Act 5 = This is the reason why i read homestuck. It's like experiencing a flurry of orgasms one after another. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll love some characters, (vriska) you'll hate some characters (vriska). Fuck, i'd even recommend those adamantly against reading act 1 to start from there, but this isn't something i'd recommend lightly. It's after you slogging through the first few acts that you get a true appreciation for act 5.

    Aw man why must you call it slogging
    The opening acts are really entertaining and funny
    Sure Act 5 is where it really kicks off for most people but give the previous acts some credit
