So to everyone else, let me inform you not in the know just what Homestuck is.
Backrgound info on MS Paint Adventures you don't technically NEED to know:
But now let's get on to the main event: HOMESTUCK. It starts out simple enough. A boy in his room. You name him, get a feel for his room, everything in it, learn about the character, how his inventory system works, since apparently in this pseudo-video-game-world people have various kinds of game inventories, and he's about to play a game within the game YOU'RE supposedly playing with him in it that can pretty much bend and twist reality itself, but no one finds it all that odd, and thiiiiis is where things start to get weird. But a good weird.
Now what I've just described takes a bit of time to get through, and you're still not halfway done the first act I don't think. The first part of the story, especially compared to the things yet to come, is...well, boring. To say the least. The only reason I stuck with it was because I had it on good authority it all pays off. And boy did it ever! And it still is! This crazy action-packed fantasy scifi horror comedy extravaganza updates multiple times a week, usually multiple times in those given days! And the best part? It's not just panels.
Most of the panels are gifs, but sometimes it's flash animation! WITH AWESOME MUSIC! And every once in a blue moon it will be an ACTUAL game! Well, not a game, more like an interactive "page" you can explore that looks like a game. Super fun!
So, how can I sum up this still yet to be finished work of internet fiction?... It is the modern Epic for the internet age. I'm serious. I don't just mean "AW DEWD, THIS IS EPIC!" I mean the genre of literature usually reserved for stories so old we don't even know who the f*** wrote them, and if we do they're long dead. If you know Homestuck, and all the usual conventions of an Epic, Homestuck fits most if not all of them.

Get on this, SJ. Oh, and this is one thread where I request that you reserve the spoiler-box for ACTUAL spoilers. Because there's a lot, and if any of you actually take the time and effort to march through this (and it'll probably take you over a week to get through on just casual reading once in a while) you'll all be at different points in the story. Speaking of, don't worry about the odd lack of page-numbers. You can hit the "save game" button and as long as you're on the same computer as the last time you read it, it'll remember and take you right to the page when you click "Load Game." NIFTY!
So yeah...get readin'.
