Makeshift is a forum adventure in the vein of Homestuck
that will never be created because the person who came up with it (Gumbal1
) does not have the resources to create it.
Our story begins on Gitalk
, where a young Skeeyon
named Caligro Zed
is finally deemed mature enough to have his AI "mother" switched off and come up to the outside world from the analyzing chamber he had spent his childhood in. Coincidentally, this is also the day a game called SCrmb would show up at the place he would live until he reached full adulthood. Together with Miretho Zen
, Discepi Ziz
, and Pariyan Zil
, Caligro enters the Medium and inadvertently dooms the Skeeyon race to extinction.

- Aliens Are Bastards: The Skeeyons are not a species you would want in your solar system.
- From Bad to Worse: Like any Homestuck fan adventure, things go sharply downhill and continue from there.
- The Game Plays You: SCrmb
- Glass Cannon: A typical Skeeyon is extremely fragile.
- Lack of Empathy: Most of the characters in the story have this. Justified in that their early childhoods are spent being tested for empathy and being systematically killed if found with it with only a small chance of failure.
- Psychic Powers: The Skeeyons all have psychic powers, the type depending upon which "template" they were born to.
