> Tropes P-R [[Homestuck/{{TropesM-O}} <==]] [[Homestuck/{{TropesS-U}} ==>]] ---- [[foldercontrol]] [[folder:P]] * PaintingTheMedium: The names of [[color:# 2ED73A: The Felt]] are always in lime. ** Along with Snowman and Doc Scratch (and later Lord English's) names are green except for the o (black, white, and an animated pool ball cycle, respectively). ** Later, [[LampshadedTrope Dave starts complaining about it]] when Rose talks about '''THE TUMOR''' and the [[color:green:Green Sun]]. ** Bro physically destroys Dave's Strife battle commands not [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=002736 once]], but [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=002771 twice]]. ** Terezi ended up [[ArcWords scratching]] Homestuck Disc 2. Since then, animations and panels have been notably glitched-looking. After the "scratching", Doc Scratch takes over as narrator once more. For our convenience, he changes the site format to a green color theme, so we could read the white text. [[AffablyEvil That was nice of him]]. While this is happening, the audience is treated to the interior of Felt Manor/Doc Scratch's house, as seen at the top of the page. Eventually, Spades Slick walks in, and proceeds to give Doc Scratch the hitching post drubbing we saw earlier. ** When Caliborn starts attacking the giant radio tower in his session with a crowbar, the entire contents of the page are shaken and jumbled up with each hit. If you turn the sound off at this page, the sound of the crowbar hitting the tower stays. The second time he does it, the [S] in the page's command is replaced with [FUCK YOU]. ** Trickster text flashes brightly in multiple colors - with the exception of Dirk, who serves as the OnlySaneMan in the situation. ** When John is about to be sucked into Lord English's Treasure, his text becomes progressively illegible. ** When Caliborn stuffs the expansion cartridge with stardust, it causes the game to become glitched again. This seems to affect the characters as they can't remember what happened right after they were transported in front of John, when Rose tries to explain what happened, nobody can understand it because the text is glitched. [[http://bladekindeyewear.tumblr.com/post/53002453932/complete-deobfuscation-of-roses-text It has been decoded, though]]. * PalmTreePanic: [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=003330 The Land of Light and Rain]], except it doesn't have palm trees. There is plenty of sand and water, though. ** [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/index.php?s=6&p=004272 The Land of Maps and Treasure]] does have palm trees, and doesn't want for sand. * PaperThinDisguise: Even [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=001946 the protagonist]] thinks so. ** CallBack joke in Act 6 when Jane [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=006061 does the same thing]] for the same exact reason. * ParasolOfPain: BARBER'S BEST FRIEND, which kind of has to be seen to be believed. * ParasolParachute: [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/index.php?s=6&p=002556 An imp]] [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere absconds]] [[NoEscapeButDown off of John's roof]] via umbrella. * PassiveAggressiveKombat: [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=002288 Spoofed.]] * PeopleJars: [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=003671 Here.]] * PercussivePrevention: Rose stops Dave from embarking on the suicide mission to deliver The Tumor to the Green Sun by beaning him with a ball of yarn. * PhosphorEssence: ** The troll's inverse version of vampires, "rainbow drinkers", glow a bright white. ** When Rose goes {{Grimdark}}, she [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=005543 gains a black glow]] to show her immense power. * PiggyBank: [-BOONDOLLARS-] go into your [-CERAMIC PORKHOLLOW-]. * PlotArmor: Played straight. There are several loopholes that allow dead characters to come BackFromTheDead, like being resurrected as their dream selves that live on Prospit or Derse, reaching their God Tier, time travel, alternate timeline duplicates, and prototyping a Kernelsprite with their dead body. ** Most directly present in-setting in the form of God Tier immortality, which grants them ResurrectiveImmortality against any "unworthy" deaths (that is, any death that isn't either suitably heroic or suitably just.) ** Due to the plot element of Weird Time Shit, readers often have knowledge of conversations or actions that may or may not have happened yet, depending on the perspective. Most notably, Karkat trolls the kids backwards in time and thus has plot armor that lasts until his first conversation with them has taken place (from his perspective). ** Almost literal in Lord English's case. [[spoiler:As the Lord of Time, inevitability always works to ''his'' advantage. In fact, EVERYTHING that has happened in the first five Acts (more than half the story) has retroactively lead to his rise to power.]] * PlotRelevantAgeUp: The journey across the Yellow Yard will take ''three years'' according to Jade... coincidentally putting her and John at 16, same age (or close) as the kids from the post-Scratch universe, [[WebcomicTime as well as the age they would be if time in the comic flowed normally compared to the Real World]]. With the timeline weirdness that occurs in the Furthest Ring, it also happens Rose, Dave, WV, and the Trolls. ** The Post-Scratch story starts two and a half years later than the Pre-Scratch one did, and so the Post-Scratch kids are two and a half years older, meaning that the RunningGag of trying to give them a terrible name on their 13th birthday can't continue. Despite this, they look identical to the kids and trolls sizeways in their "symbolic form", though look noticeably older in "hero mode" * PoesLaw: Dave's Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff webcomic is described as "a webcomic ironically maintained through a satirical cipher" with "legions of devoted fans, most of whom are totally convinced" of his sockpuppet persona's sincerity. * {{Portmanteau}}: Given the sheer number of random places and concepts requiring some form of new terminology, there are pretty much an endless assortment of these to choose from, many of which one might not even notice at first. * PortalCut: Briefly considered by Roxy in the alpha session concerning the fenestrated walls, before being shown to be untrue concering the fenestrated walls. More likely than not a MythologyGag, considering how often this turned up with the windows in ProblemSleuth. ** Demonstrated later on by Dirk and a sendificator. * PosterGalleryBedroom: John, Karkat, and in the biggest example, Jake. * PottyEmergency: Dave undergoes one after a cleaning mishap sends his toilet crashing through the ceiling. -->@@[[color:red:TG: its like fucking christmas up in my bladder here\\ TG: and where do i find my toilet\\ TG: oh look here it is\\ TG: amputated in my room\\ TG: gagged with a towel like a fucking prison hostage]]@@ * PowerGivesYouWings: A consequence of Dave's sprite prototyping when putting on one of the queen's rings. ** Trolls grow wings if they hit their god tiers as well. * PowerOfLove: The Heart aspect invokes this in part. * PoweredByAForsakenChild: Or should we say ''Painted With'' A Forsaken Child. Turns out that Alternian paint sets use the blood of culled wrigglers. * PreAssKickingOneLiner: [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=004740 Here.]] * PrecisionFStrike: "You could always try to guess his name. But instead of that, here's a better idea. Why don't you just fuck off and go to hell?" * PreemptiveDeclaration: Miss Mail Lady gets a letter from Jade about where to go; however, the actual location is considerably less damaged than the picture illustrates. --> "[[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=003017 But you guess it's straightforward enough,]] [[TemptingFate even if the drawing is somewhat inaccurate...]] ''[[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=003018 (next panel)]]'' [[StuffBlowingUp Oh no!]]" ** Snowman does this in the Midnight Crew intermission. --> "Hold still, Slick. [[EyeScream Something in your eye.]]" * ProductPlacement: For the author's own [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=001911 merchandise]]. * [[PromotedFanboy Promoted Fanboys/Fangirls]]: Andrew takes some art submissions to use in flash updates, and the entire sound team qualifies. * PseudoCrisis: "I won't be coming back." It's just her dream self won't be coming back, actually; she herself will be fine. Only an example as Hussie stopped there for the day; the resolution was solved the next day. It turns out to be {{Foreshadowing}}, though, since by the time it actually comes to go on that mission, all the kids' dream selves have died, meaning that whoever goes has to ([[DeathIsCheap apparently]]) make an actual heroic sacrifice. ** John's dramatic impalement in the chest on [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=005596 this page]] is a lot less worrisome for those who remember that players who've reached the God Tiers can only die heroically or justly, and getting sucker-stabbed by the BigBad is ''very'' unlikely to fall into either category. Or, who remember that we've seen a panel that shows John, in his godhood, that takes place after that battle. * PsychoSerum: The [[GRatedDrug Spiral Sucker]] compels its user to lick it ''before it[='=]s even consumed,'' and when Jane licks it, she engages Trickster Mode, which turns her into a mind-numbingly [[TastesLikeDiabetes saccharine]] StepfordSmiler with extreme GreenThumb power. ** In much earlier pages than that, the Mind Honey certainly counts. * {{Pun}}: You slay them all with your [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=003195 RAPIER WIT]]. * PunchedAcrossTheRoom: Dad decking a Shale Imp ''through a wall.'' [[/folder]] [[folder:Q]] * QuipToBlack: Dave, Dirk, and Sollux all get a few off every now and again. [[/folder]] [[folder:R]] * RaceAgainstTheClock: Multiple uses, all of them involving specific countdown clocks and [[ColonyDrop lots of really, really big meteors]]. * RageAgainstTheAuthor: [[UpToEleven Taken to the logical extreme]]. The BigBad, Lord English, not only kills Hussiebot, but ''he kills Andrew Hussie himself''. * RainbowSpeak: [[color:blue:universe]] and [[color:red:universe]], for example. Often, these differently colored words are also converted into animated [=GIFs=] and have a sort of supernatural sparkle to them. Then there's this particularly memorable piece of {{Angrish}}: [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=004163 SHE HAS WHAT!?]] * RaisedByWolves: All of the trolls. Jade as well, in a more literal case - her guardian is Bec, a dog. * ARareSentence: Via Hussie himself on Twitter. --> a line i seriously just wrote in reality: "People were less prepared for a double juggalo presidency than they ever imagined. * ReadingsBlewUpTheScale: Kanaya's "flighty broads and their snarky horseshitometer" explodes when Kanaya watches Rose blow up her first gate. It simply couldn't take this much horseshit. * RealisticDictionIsUnrealistic: In a more roundabout way that usual, exemplified during the first text log of post-Scratch Lalonde: she is the only character to make accidental misspelling in her text and then correct them with an asterisks (something way more common in real life texting). Even she only appears to do this because she is drunk. Or maybe on purpose. Of course, we've been shown that all kids are pretty intelligent for their ages, and can all be safely described as "nerds", so it's not as unrealistic as it first appears. And trolls [[TranslationConvention write in another alphabet altogether]] anyway. * RealityWarper: The aspect of '''Space''', which also caries over to First Guardians. * RecapEpisode: 3 thus far. Hussie began a fourth a few updates before the end of Act 5 Act 2, but comically decided against it. * RecordNeedleScratch: This occurs several times, the first time being [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=002879 here]]. ** [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=006842 Here]], an actual in-universe record is involved. * RecurringRiff: Several songs have become these, most notably Sburban Jungle, but also Doctor and Upward Movement. * RedEyesTakeWarning: Jane's irises change to bright red when she's being [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/ACT6ACT5ACT1x2COMBO.php?s=6&p=007800 mind controlled]]. * TheRedStapler: Both for actual merchandise as well as products featured in the comic, like Faygo and Gushers. * RedHerring: After the introduction of one of Homestuck's most powerful villains, [[BigBad Lord English]], we are soon introduced to the alpha kids, including one Jake English. His shirt's icon closely resembles Lord English's skull, and apart from having the same surname, [[FridgeLogic the alpha kids' title of the Nobles would make Jake's noble title "Lord English".]] Then, we are introduced to [[JerkAss Caliborn]], who is essentially a young Lord English. He receives the cursed juju [[DemonicDummy Lil Cal]], which eventually becomes a SoulJar that contains him during all of its timeline. * RepriseMedley: "Descend", (played at the end of Act 4) and, to a lesser extent, "Eternity's Shylock"/"Eternity Served Cold" (the end of Act 6 Act 3). * ResentfulGuardian: Rose and her mother hold up a passive-aggressive oneupmanship contest with each other. Rose sees her mother as being resentful in nature, and her somewhat quirky personality as hateful. May or may not be a huge misunderstanding on her part. * ResurrectiveImmortality: There is guaranteed immortality for any Sburb player who reaches God Tier which can only be achieved by a player arranging to be killed on their Quest Bed. They simply cannot be KilledOffForReal unless the death is deemed [[DeathEqualsRedemption just]] or [[HeroicSacrifice heroic]]. They'll be dead for a few minutes, and then they'll jump right back up again without any blood on their clothes. In theory they can come back even if their corpse is annihilated (and it has been more or less proven that they can come back after being incinerated.) They also [[TheAgeless won't succumb to old age.]] * {{Retconjuration}}: John tries utilizing Lord English's secret treasure by putting his hand through it. It allows him to access any point in time of any of ''Homestuck'''s continuities, shown by featuring dozens of panels concerning previous events now containing glimpses of John's arm. What's interesting about this is that the original panels found within the comic have been replaced with the ones present in the updates in question - including the animated sequences. * RetroactivePreparation: The Appearifiers and Sendifiers easily facilitate this. The Bunny was intended to be this trope by Jade and her penpal from the future. [[ZigZaggingTrope While it definitely helps the Kids against Jack, it's also what caused Jack to be such a problem to begin with.]] ** A more subtle example: The Trolls help the Kids in their preparations for the Scratch by passing on information from their future selves. They then tell the Trolls what they need to be told in the past. * ReviveKillsZombie: [[DiscussedTrope discussed]] since [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Grimbark!Jade]] uses it as a threat against [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Kanaya]]. * RhetoricalQuestionBlunder: -->[[color:green:[=GT: Yeah but come on its not like youre from a century in the future.=]]]\\ [[color:orange:[=TT: Well.=]]] [[HalfTruth [=No.=]]]\\ [[color:green:[=GT: Nor am i a quaint man of the past. Pardon me but do i SOUND like some trollycar bellwether toiling in the heart of the mustache belt from the ruff n tumble year of nineteen aught nine???=]]]\\ [[color:orange:[=TT: ...=]\\ [=TT: He said unironically.=]]] * ARiddleWrappedInAMysteryInsideAnEnigma: WV comments to himself that women are "a riddle draped in a mystery wrapped in [[BreadEggsMilkSquick post-apocalyptic shroudwear.]]" * RobotHair: ** Jade Harley, Dirk Strider, and Andrew Hussie all have robots of themselves complete with matching hair that appear to be carved/shaped out of the same metal used for the body. ** Aradia Megido's soulbot has synthetic hair that is the same [[RapunzelHair long]], curly hairstyle that she had when she was alive. ** The herd of robotic Maplehoofs have the same mane as their living counterpart. * RooftopConfrontation: John's 'Boss Fight' vs the Ogres on the roof of his house. ** Dave vs Bro Strider. ** Behold [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=006766 one of the most heroic moments in human history]]. * RoomFullOfCrazy: Many characters have scribbles all over their walls. John's is the only true example of the trope however; the rest are mild or intentional for Sburb. * RPGMechanicsVerse: Sburb and the incipisphere, naturally. But more oddly, the real world also RPG mechanics in its sylladex system, and post-scratch Earth has many more elements taken from Sburb. Of course, since all the trolls & kids we've seen [[FridgeLogic come from worlds created by Sburb]]... ** Remember whenever you'd see the kids & trolls talking to someone, how it would show up as a chat log? Turns out they honestly couldn't talk in real life outside of chat-like mechanics until [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=006194 John & Jade reached higher God Tiers]] and [[YouHaveResearchedBreathing earned the gift of gab]]. ** [[http://mspandrew.tumblr.com/post/14210746202/mad-answerins These features simultaneously do and do not exist in-universe.]] * RuleOfAnimationConservation: Flash is used for a) exposition via walkarounds in which one interacts with the environment, b) minigames, c) atmospheric detail via music or sound, or d) epic cinematic moments. Andrew seems to like the last usage best; as of late the other three types of flashpages have been greatly reduced. Simple .gif animation, on the other hand, is so common it's not even worth mentioning anymore (unlike in the early days of Problem Sleuth). * RuleThirtyFour: Bro Strider runs an extremely lucrative smuppet porn site. ** The caliginous quadrant and trolls' attitudes towards buckets seem like this from a human perspective. *** After learning that trolls consider buckets obscene, [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=004642 Dave makes Terezi a Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff style comic]], portraying [[HeadTiltinglyKinky Terezi falling into the Kool-Aid Man's pitcher]]. **** Bonus points because, with Terezi's typing quirk, the title of the picture turned out to be 'ohy34h.jpg' ** Monosexuality seems like this and / or SelectiveSquick [[invoked]] from a troll perspective. In [[http://mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=004528 this conversation]], John [[YoureNotMyType explains]] the concept of IncompatibleOrientation to Karkat: -->[[color:blue: EB: hey, i don't have a problem with your weird sort of alien hate-love thing!]] -->[[color:blue:EB: it is just that, uh...]] -->[[color:grey:CG: WHAT]] -->[[color:blue:EB: i am not a homosexual.]] -->[[color:grey:CG: WHAT THE HELL IS THAT?]] -->[[color:blue:EB: it is like, when a boy likes another boy.]] -->[[color:blue:EB: or i guess hates, in this case.]] -->[[color:grey:CG: HUMANS HAVE A WORD FOR THAT?]] -->[[color:blue:EB: yes.]] -->[[color:grey:CG: HOW IS THAT EVEN A THING?]] -->[[color:blue:EB: shrug. it just is.]] -->[[color:grey:CG: HUMAN ROMANCE SURE IS WEIRD.]] ** Karkat is also confused by the concept of incest, and doesn't find it disgusting, since trolls do not have siblings and are all technically interrelated due to BizarreAlienReproduction. ** [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=005407 Spineret Mindfang]] seems to have a thing for lowbloods, particularly lowbloods of unknown caste (or maybe just squicking her kismesis by defying social conventions). * RunningGag: Too many to list. Just [[http://mspaintadventures.wikia.com/wiki/Ongoing_gags#Gags_in_Homestuck go here]], or we could be here all day... [[/folder]] ---- [[Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} > Go Back]] [[Homestuck/{{TropesM-O}} <==]] [[Homestuck/{{TropesS-U}} ==>]] ----
