This board needs a Homestuck topic. What does everyone think about it?

It's nice to see that Hivebent is finally coming to a close. It was enjoyable and pretty funny, especially the recent memos, but it really is time that the real story is resumed.

Yay a fellow fan!

I just finished a full reread of Homestuck/Hivebent last night (because what else am I going to do while waiting for this troll flash?) and I definitely prefer Hivebent. Maybe it's just because of the fast pacing, or because all the trolls have such extreme personalities and quirks or their tendency to have huge pesterlogs full of many hilarious antics, but almost everything before Hivebent just seemed a little dull to me. That said, I can't wait to get back to the kids, but I really hope we stick with this new humor standard.

So wait, what you're saying is that you reread all of the pages. All of them. Is this true?

I reread all the pages. All of them. Yeah.

I felt like the trollflash was kinda pointless; it really didn't advance the plot much farther and it didn't have new music. The guest art was absurdly detailed though, that was a crazy awesome dragon. Oh well. I'm really looking forward to a return to the main story so we can finally get out of the troll backstory. It's been like three months since we've seen the awesome characters like Bro, Dave, or Davesprite. I'm sure some deleriously fierce****ty biznasty will be going down soon.

At first I was a little disappointed with the trollflash because it didn't resolve the story, it didn't feature the 12x prototyped Black King, there was nothing about the Rift or Lord English or Doc Scratch, and other stuff like that. But after finding out it was never meant to be the definitive 'end' of Hivebent (just near the end), I've started liking it more and more. Sure, it wasn't as epic as Descend, but it wasn't a true End of Act flash. And you can be disappointed by the lack of new music, but Crystamanthequins was used so perfectly and everything synced up so well that actually complaining about it just seems objectively wrong.

But yeah, as soon as we get back to the kids we'll be getting pounded by crazy stuff right away. I can't wait to see how the Earth Exiles story goes. That twist with them having the ring blew my mind.

Yeah, I suppose that no one should have ever hoped for a flash as AMAZINGLY AWESOME as this one.

Indeed, the newest flash is amazing. I was hoping for a flash with that song to happen.
Signatures are dumb

Surprise flashes are the best.

And now for some theorizing. Derse opposes Skaia. Derse is influenced by the Gods of the Furthest Ring. So the Gods of the Furthest Ring oppose Skaia? The Gods also opposed the creation of Bec. And the Gods were alright with Lord English's ~ATH program.

I'm not sure where I was going with that.
