    Summary

    From the age of nine, Juniper Smith began filling notebooks with his worlds, at first places of fantastical imagination, but later with each as an expression of some theme or idea that momentarily grabbed his interest. Over the course of eight years, he shared these worlds with his friends through twice-weekly sessions of tabletop gaming. Now at the age of seventeen, he finds himself in Aerb, a world that appears to be an amalgam of those many notebooks, stuck trying to find the answers to why he's there and what this world is trying to say. The most terrifying answer might be that this world is an expression of the person he was back on Earth.

    Update schedule is, as always, whenever I feel like it. Most discussion for this work takes place on /r/rational whenever a new chapter is posted.

    He is actually kind of a prick.

    An amazing "what if", which is surprisingly rare in the fandom. Unfinished, but it's not too late.

    This was actually way better than I expected. It's really nothing like Homestuck, but it's still really good. Can't say much about it without spoiling it.

    Summary

    "An immense saucer descending from the clouds and impacting the ground, as the press and through them the people of Earth looked on in shock and awe. That was the scene in California's Mohave desert two years ago today: the historic first view of the Alternian ship upon its dramatic arrival. Their ship was a refugee ship carrying a quarter million children and young adults ready to settle in almost any environment, but they washed ashore on Earth with no way to get back to where they came from. Civil liberties attorneys successfully lobbied for the Alternians' release from quarantine and in the last two years, the Alternians have become the latest addition to the population of Los Angeles."

    The representitives of a race of newcomers fight to give their people a home on Earth- but even without the deadly killer stalking the streets of LA, just surviving is hard enough for some. Can humans and aliens work together to build a better future? Or is it all doomed to end in bloodshed?

    One thing is for sure - for sixteen teenagers, this is going to be a dangerous week.

    Immensely entertaining Homestuck fanfiction with amazingly fleshed out characters. The premise ends up being a bit generic, but it's still very much enjoyable. The short prequel is quite good too, but the sequels are a bit meh, though still readable.
