''[=STuCK=]'' is an [[MSPaintAdventures MSPA Forum Adventure]] co-created by authors stilettoHurricane, Big Bad, sarydactl and KingFissure. ''[=STuCK=]'' follows in the footsteps of the story of "Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}". It follows Homestuck's example in having normal and animated panels in addition to animated flash pages.

''[=STuCK=]'' follows four players; Katie, Chris, Sara and (the yet unrevealed) poisonPoltergeist, starting their own game of SBURB. Just like anybody trying to play a 'simple' game of SBURB, lots of things get in their way before they can even start playing proper including aggressive guardians, unsavory weather and mysterious demons.

* InstrumentOfMurder: The guitar in Sara's house appears to be more than an old guitar.

* LizardFolk: One of the cards Chris summons is Gladiator Beast Retiari; a big Roman-themed Lizard-man.

** Unless there's focus on her eyes, Sara has mostly only appeared with her glasses hiding her eyes.
** pP's only appearances have been like this, but verging into ScaryShinyGlasses.
* ScarfOfAsskicking
* ScaryShinyGlasses: pP's only two appearances are as a dark silhouette with reflected glasses.
* ScheduleSlip: To be expected. Updates tend to be irregular when the author currently holding the reins is busy. Especially when Katie had to do animations while simultaneously attending college classes.
* ShoutOut: Some panels are done to reference, in words or images, some running gags from Homestuck.
* TitleDrop: Unavoidable with such a common word like "stuck."
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity:
** pP has mentioned going mad with power [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=314&p=236 here]]
** DrunkWithPower has also been a suggestion for pP.
