As the story is ''[[ScheduleSlip still]]'' off on a slow start, most of the tropes here may only cover the prologue.

As In October of 2015, Great Pikmin Fan [[http://great-pikmin-fan.tumblr.com/post/132247427087/caution-wide-load-long-post announced]] that the story is ''[[ScheduleSlip still]]'' off on effectively discontinued, due to a slow start, most combination of not liking the tropes here may only cover exact direction he ended up taking the prologue.
story and his loss of interest in ''Homestuck'' canon due to what he percieved as SeasonalRot. In Valentine's Day of 2016, it will have a final update until further notice: One last "regular" pairing chapter, followed by a TimeSkip to what would have been the setting after the pairing chapters proper dealing with a sillier, light hearted "final battle" that celebrates everything he had written so far.



* DoorStopper: The prologue is among the longest single chapters Great Pikmin Fan has written so far[[note]]and it was the longest until "Pairing is Caring" from ''Total Zeksmit Plains'' beat it[[/note]], and it's supposed to be ''abridged''. If Jane/Roxy is any indication, the couple chapters are ''really'' short, but there's going to be almost five hundred of them.

* AlternateUniverse: Taken UpToEleven in that this isn't even a doomed timeline or a strange new world created by Sburb itself. It's an entirely new iteration of the entire multiverse of ''Homestuck'', and this is supported by the fact that all sessions seen freely interact with one-another, there are changes ''before'' the games start, a doomed Rose calling Duplicate Meulin "neither offshoot nor alpha," and the Green Sun's creation occurs in the story.

* BodyHorror: Damunasprite (Jane's sprite), Hoonahsprite (Jake's sprite), Karrlasprite (Roxy's sprite), and Ruanozsprite (Dirk's sprite). Damunasprite objects the strongest to their form (in spite of only being made of two people, in contrast to the other sprites which are made of three), and Ruanozsprite is... part Kurloz and has some currently unexplained ability to "curse" an entire session, Karrlasprite is harmless and calm, and Hoonahsprite is "horror" for a [[NoSenseOfPersonalSpace completely different reason]].

* DemotedToExtra: In the prologue, Tavros, Sollux, Terezi, Gamzee, Eridan, and Feferi don't speak or type a ''word'' of dialogue. Especially bad since the ending of Prologue Act One practically shoehorns in at least one line from each of the pre-scratch trolls.



* DrivenToSuicide: Ruanozsprite, arguably. They somehow know they have served what they were fated to do, and they explode so that they can live individually in the afterlife.

* FixFic: At times, it contains some shades of this. It's not supposed to ''be'' a fix fic, though.



* {{Jerkass}}: John seems to be this to the trolls, since he appears to piss off most of them. While his grudge with Horuss has been given a source that probably originated from Horuss's fault, Latula seems to be interested in hearing about things that piss him off, Feferi is a little annoyed when he suggests picking his own sleeping quarters to be with his friends, and when Nepeta finds out she has to bunk with him her reaction is a dead-serious "Oh, son of a bitch."



** "Meenah/Rufioh" implies that John is flattered with being an ecto-parent along with Jade and that's actually encouraging him to persuit a relationship with her. He's probably got another thing coming.



* WhamEpisode: "Meenah/Rufioh." The actual interaction with the pairing is not much surprising, but towards the end it is hinted that Gamzee might still have some malice on him. What qualifies this is John and Nepeta's route to get to their rooms, and the ending. [[spoiler:With the dream bubble still holding influence on the meteor, John and Nepeta are attacked by ''Mindfang'' (who is implied to still be alive, based on the orange eyes), she seems to have some ties with Duplicate Meulin, and by the end Aranea uses some strange game-related technology with her dreamself to create a clone of herself with Mindfang's memories and "data" in her, with said clone being passed out instantly upon creation.]]

* TheStationsOfTheCanon: Averted in the prologue. The only thing that happens similarly to canon is at the very, ''very'' beginning with Meenah moving to the moon and finding out about the game, and that quickly leads to a conversation with a new character. Every other moment similar to canon is either pretty different (John, Jade, and Rose's entries) or happens offscreen (the events of most of the sessions). The end result isn't even the same, as Rose actually manages to ''kill'' her denizen. Cetus is still alive in canon, making her the only clear example so far of someone being SparedByTheAdaptation.

* AccidentalInnuendo: In-universe. Jane and Jake's first on-screen pesterlog involves Jake asking Jane if she wants to put a staircase in the front or the back of her house. Mituna and his dreamselves (who were reading over Jane's shoulder) find this hilarious.

As the story is ''[[ScheduleSlip still]]'' off on a slow start, most of the tropes here may only cover the prologue.



* AscendedExtra: The pre-scratch trolls in general, ''especially'' Meulin, if the fact that she's the only character tagged, her ace duplicate, and the fact that she's working directly under Nepeta for her strange shipping plan are any indications.



* DramaticIrony: The human's ectobiology section, where it's misunderstood and gotten backwards.



* FirstEpisodeSpoiler: The prologue is far from a retelling of the events of each session, as just about everything that was covered is a major plot moment. It begins with the pre-scratch trolls all dead, and until it's revealed that those are time clones it was lightly implied that they might ''stay'' dead. And that's only the first act. The other acts involve all of the guardians dying, exposition on the antagonist of the chapter, everyone misunderstanding the ectobiology of the human session, etc.

** Yet another SJAHJ nod, this isn't the first time Hank Hill has influenced a tyiran-texted character. (Jaka there, Meenah in this story.)



* ParodySue: Bororo is a pretty blatant example. Although rather than the stereotypical "perfect sparkly" character that usually fits the trope, her design is implicitley a parody of OriginalCharacter types commonly seen in the ''Homestuck'' and ''Total Drama'' fandoms: Her appearance is flat-out stated to be a copy of Jade and Karkat's, she is something of a self-insert parody (having intrests supposedly nearly identical to the author's), she has a psychopathic crush on Gamzee, her "quirk" is typing in a completely normal style, she is stated (by herself) as the "nice but can be really mean if you make her angry" type but really comes off as a jerk throughout, frequently antagonizes all the "bad" characters such as Meenah, and can't feel ''and doesn't know well about'' (a jab at the fandom misconceptions of such) any quadrant except flushed. Her trolltag is even "plotDevice."

* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: The prologue and planned epilogue are written in the ''Homestuck'' style of second person, has special requirements for visible dialogue, and dialogue in question is written in script format. The pairing chapters read like a typical third-person fan fic. The beginning AN even mentions this, and to not report the fan fic for being a second-person fan fic.

* StableTimeLoop: Mostly averted, with one notable exception; the creation of Beforus's first guardian. It was created in a lab in the Moon Frog Temple, eventually prototyped itself in Meulin's kernelsprite after her lusis failed to show up, was prototyped again with a Hank Hill poster by Meenah in order to make it comprehensible, and as Hanksprite it set up the trolls' place on the Frog Temple meteor and on the ride into the A2 session, which also leads to its own creation shortly after from the perspective of the parties on that meteor.

** The entire "shipping all the ships" plot was started by Duplicate Meulin telling Nepeta words of encouragement, both from observing the dream bubbles aaaaand... by seeing what is heavily implied to be the same meteor trip that Nepeta would later take said words to practace and try to ship all the ships on.

Added DiffLines:

* NakedPeopleAreFunny: As of Karkat/Terezi, Horuss appears to be a closest nudist of some sort, having gone around naked (offscreen for now) until John and Jade forced him to go around in a towel until he gets his clothes back on.


Added DiffLines:

* NonIndicativeName: The pairing names do not seem to be wholly focused to the couple in its title later, and the fact that it has been confirmed that everyone will get together with everyone else implies that this will not happen until future chapters. The notes at the end of year one lampshade it, saying that in spite of having seven pairing chapters, none of the couples have actually hooked up.
