The thing is, Homestuck, in addition to being really, really great, is notoriously difficult to describe. There are too many great things about it! Too many characters! Too many plot twists! Too many motherfucking universes. I tried to write about five different versions of a fandom safari for slashreport, but I failed out each time, because I couldn’t get it to fit to vaguely one minute.
This primer is partly the result of that. The other part is that I think you should read the goddamn comic because it is motherfucking excellent and you won’t regret it.
Terezi’s a legislacerator, post-mortem division, and she’s been waiting for a case like this since her assignment. Vriska just wants to hunt monsters on TV.
This warehouse isn’t big enough for the both of them.
In which a mutant is oppressed by his government, two teenage girls plot the end of a political regime, a princeling becomes an exile, and a quest is formed on the behalf of a beekeeper without his knowledge. Involving several social, political, and literal misfires, a (pale) romancing in a mountain cave, and war waged abreast a clockwork dragon.
Containing: a number of on-screen kisses, several hundred acts of treason, three or so trinkets of extreme sentimental value, the verbal abuse of an offensive hat; one or more instances of poorly timed flushed overtures, and exactly one tantrum involving a cool kid, a glacier, and a pair of sunglasses.
