This will be text-only, hosted on fanfiction.net, and will "officially" replace this comic's place in "canon." Tropes for the remake will go on the [=FanFic/=] namespace version, as Fan implied that the two of them will practically be different stories.

!!Tropes seen in the retcon text-only remake:


Added DiffLines:

[[folder:Tropes A - Z]]
* AdaptationalBadass: Jane was already badass in canon, and moreso in the original SJAHJ as she was able to pull off many feats without even having any God Tier powers. In the new one? Hoo boy... [[spoiler:she manages to, without effort, ''carve a giant canyon that goes deep enough in the planet to draw out lava''.]]
* CompressedAdaptation: Done not because of the "medium change," but because Fan thought that the original was [[ArcFatigue way too bloated]] and confusing, not to mention it was made up as he went along. This time, he has the whole story planned out ahead to a far greater extent, so elements like Jade's bullying issues [[spoiler:where ''she's'' the bully to ''Dave'']] can come a lot earlier. The first chapter in particular already established how much better Jake and especially Jane are compared to John and Jade, introduced Nepeta and suggested her high importance, set up the "friendship" between Jade and Kanaya, and suggested to Dave's sheer skill, [[OnlySaneMan sanity]] (sort of), and [[spoiler:relationship with Rose]]. All of these were things not present in the "introduction" to SJAHJ -- technically Intermission Act One (Act One itself was literally just John saying "fuck, let's be... MARIO AND LUIGI!") -- did not have any of that at all and was just John and Jade dicking around on a ship with Good Yoshi. One of the largest examples is the fact that the Mario Intermission, which took up roughly one half to one third of the original comic, was completely nuked -- Act 1 instead has an original plot about John and Jade being stuck in their rooms, and they still quickly and anti-climactically get out.
* EarlyBirdCameo: It took a while before Dave, Rose, Jane, Jake, Kanaya, or Nepeta appeared in the original, particularly Rose. In the new version, the latter four are all involved with John and Jade's antics in the first chapter, and there's one cut leading to Dave and Rose having a conversation as well.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment:
** Jade waking up ''in the afternoon'' butt-naked and being reluctant to help out John out of laziness. Establishes her more jerkass-y incarnation from the old SJAHJ pretty well.
** Nepeta's "importance" is hinted at since her first conversation with Kanaya, and through the first chapter when she talks about being "busy" a lot.
** Jane does an attack in Chapter 1 that's strong enough to rip her and John's house in half. In the end of the chapter, [[spoiler:we see that it manages to carve a '''gigantic''' canyon in the planet.]]
* InNameOnly: The new SJAHJ is close to being a completely different story from the old, and it still does not have that much in common with ''Homestuck'' canon.
* NakedPeopleAreFunny: Chapter 1 has Jade getting out of bed nude and (half-)joking about immediately coming to John's rescue prior to even getting dressed.

** Pretty much every troll except Nepeta. WordOfGod stated that he even hates writing for them because he can't come up with anything for them that isn't walls of hemospectrum=racist, romance discussions, and plot exposition. Notably, Vriska, opposite of Nepeta, turns from one of the most important characters in ''Homestuck'' who deliberatly tries to force herself into the plot into an [[MyNameIsEarl Earl]] expy early on in the comic. [[RuleOfFunny This was intentional.]] Lamshaded in the Shipping Intermission when Tavros asks Vriska what the last big plan she had was. She answers with a long pause, followed by a "fuck you."
