General All-Purpose Homestuck Fanfiction Thread:

Polite smartass.
Trying to keep up with the Theme Naming we've got going on in this section. Exactly What It Says on the Tin; I thought that we could use a place to discuss Homestuck fanfiction out in the open. Please feel free to post recommendations, reviews, questions or comments on anything relating to Homestuck fan creations.

To get the ball rolling, I strongly suggest Miracle Child to anyone who hasn't read it yet. It's emotional, well-written, and provides many smart ideas about the troll's culture, biology and their world as a whole.
I've returned from the depths to continue politely irritating the good people of TV Tropes.(◕‿◕✿)

I just found out that Dont Name It started updating again while I wasn't looking. This makes me very happy.

EDIT: Spoke too soon. Caught up with the thread, and Calamity announced she can't really continue working on it, so she's just gonna put up a synopsis of what she had planned for the rest of the story.

That's pretty amazing. I was actually considering making this thread yesterday. The reason I didn't was that I didn't want to contaminate the first post with the single story that I wanted to discuss.

Which is Chain.

[Doesn't recognize that fic name. Looks it up on Ao3.]

Oooh, it's by Conceptofzero. I don't know whether to be impressed or terrified by the sheer volume of carapace shipping/smut that they've written.

In more pleasant news, 8r8k h34ds finished pretty recently. That one started off as something that's not normally my cup of tea, but good regardless, but then a few chapters in it introduced an "Am I losing my mind?" subplot that knocked the fic right out of the park.

Yeah. 92 stories in less than two years? Chain is something like 30k words long too...

It's also incredibly disturbing, but in a way where at least the author is completely aware of exactly why it's disturbing (rather than being some awful idfic) and there's a satisfying payoff at the end. Pun not intended.

New chapter of Hemostuck went up yesterday and oh my goodness it's so good.
Polite smartass.
Hemostuck is just... wow. Definitely wow. The authors have a great understanding of the relationship between character and backstory: the way that Eridan really isn't such a bad guy when he's not such a spoiled douche, and Vriska's just this lovable mess of batshit crazy no matter where she came from. This is one of those fanfics that's good not only as fanfiction, but as fiction in itself.

I quite like the Sburb Glitch FAQ...

And...self pimping...

Behold my attempt at a Homestuck epic poem.

Just read that glitch FAQ and it actually is pretty good.

I'm a little confused at the implication that the guide-writer (among many others) has played multiple SBURB games, though. And that he/she's aware of, and has been in contact with players from many other sessions - even though he states that this is impossible except with universes where the creation universe fucked up in frog breeding*.

Hopefully this will be explained later.

Self-pimping? I wrote a fic about the Handmaid and one about ghost Aradia.

Yes, the Sburb Glitch FAQ is definitely my favorite of the Sburb walkthrough fic subgenre. One of the few that really captures the vibe of confusion and desperation that I get from canon. And then that whole chapter about the terraforming quest and the Denizens was strangely touching.

"Filling Blanks and Taking Names" just updated. It's a fic about the troll ancestors gathering in the Dolorosa's dreambubbles, and the latest chapter is a right Wham Episode.

Funny you should mention that, because the latest updates explain precisely that.

Aha! Awesome! And also, really depressing.

Just finished reading Aon's epic poem thing. I'm hooked now, even though I'm not normally a fan of poetry and don't have any strong feelings about Rose/Kanaya.
...
I second the poem, and also quite liked 'Filling Blanks' and 'j0bs t0 d0'.

It's a shame Evastuck died so quickly, though...

Oh My
Ah. Thank you for reading it and I'm glad you all seem to like it so far. Even if the genre isn't your thing normally.

I picked Rose in part because I like that ship so to be honest... I'm a horrible shipper who must, as the horrible meme states, ship. The rest being because I find her to be a rather interesting choice for an epic hero. She doesn't have the raw brute strength of someone like Beowulf. She instead has to rely on trickery and more indirect methods of destroying things. Her personality also affords story options that I find interesting. When we have a proud hero in such a tale we have two real options. The Turumbar option where they never learn until it's too late and everything goes to fucking hell. Then there's learning from it after hubris hits you in the head like a sack of potatoes filled with bricks instead of potatoes and being able to do something with this new found knowledge.

I really like shit hitting the fan for the stubborn prideful heroes whether or not they get a chance to redeem themselves.

I wonder how the Sburb Glitch FAQ is gonna handle this latest update, 'bout all the null and void sessions and shit.

...

Oh wow. I just got that pun.

^^Rose is an interesting character, that's for sure.

I've found that I prefer fics that have romance as a secondary rather than a primary focus. Even if it's a pairing that I personally like, I'd prefer to read a story about them having cool adventures and also kissing, rather than a fic solely about them kissing.
 19 Aondeug, Thu, 15th Mar '12 9:48:30 PM from  Our Dreams
Oh My
I'm not sure which I prefer in general. When it comes to fanfic typically the latter. If only because I dislike how most romantic fanfiction is written. That and I'm a weirdy not interested in the 1000th version of Rose confessing to Kanaya. What about them arguing over who does the dishes or something years down the line?!

grrr

rrrr

But no as with most romance it is "AWKWARD CONFESSION" or "Long drawn out romance that will end after the awkward confession. May or may not include kissing or very badly written sex."

There's just so much potential in dynamics and couple quirks that build up over time...Which isn't to say that the dynamics prior to a relationship or those of a new relationship aren't interesting. I'm just tired of seeing it.

So I just wrote it myself and dear god it still needs to be edited and posted on AO3 but whee other writing projects.

For the first time ever, I went deeper (okay, not even that deep) into the tumblr of that guy who coordinated the Gristmas sex toy thing.

And that porn in there. I am not sure whether to burst out laughing or to burst out vomiting. Possibly a painful combination of both.

And then I can make some porn of it.

Oh god. What is this tumblr doing to me. XD

It is making you wish to not only comb the deep non-euclidean labyrinth of a fanmade pornography on an internet blog, but to begin in the horrendously taboo ritual of creating meta-porn. You will soon be lost to us. Forever doomed to wander through those dark halls while making your sickening, cacodaemonical art.

Why is cacodaemonical not an accepted word, firefox spellcheck? Mr. Lovecraft has assured me that is a common enough term!

I'm really not sure the SBURB Glitch FAQ will continue. I mean, the last chapter kind of explained the author's problem in a way that seems kind of final.

"SBURB Mental Disorders" was a pretty intense chapter, if only because it implies the author has witnessed every single one of them. My mental image of his voice was picturing him on the edge of tears a few times.

It appears to be continuing, at least according to the chapter after Advanced Game Theory.

I liked how they justified the Prince class as a destroyer.

Just read the latest Hemostuck update, and the pesterlog conversation between Terezi and Feferi was the greatest thing.
