Academystuck is an Alternate Universe Homestuck fanfiction by CJ Croen 1393.

In a world where kids develop superpowers at a young age, a man named Andrew Hussie opened a huge school known as the "Hussmeister Academy for Special Individuals"—at the Academy, there are twelve Fractions for students to be placed in depending on their powers: Breath, Blood, Light, Void, Hope, Rage, Heart, Mind, Life, Doom, Space and Time. One boy, Karkat Vantas was sent to the school despite the fact that his powers hadn't awoken yet, and there, he meets Dave Strider, John Egbert and Wally "WV" Valiant, members of the Time, Breath and Mind Fractions respectively. From there, things get crazy...

  • Adaptation Species Change: All the trolls, carapacians, cherubs and leprechauns are changed to humans here.
  • Age Lift: WV, PM and Snowman were adults in canon, but are students here.
  • Alternate Universe Fic
  • Anti-Magic: Crowbar's main power—unlike his canon counterpart, his crowbar nullifies all superpowers, not just Time ones. In the first installment, it doesn't work on Karkat because his powers hadn't completely awakened yet.

  • Bishōnen: The history teacher, Mr. Himaruya.
  • Blind Seer: Terezi.
  • Cool Teacher: Mr. Hussie is a cool headmaster. Mr. Himaruya qualifies too, to the point that he doesn't even give letter grades—instead grading with anime faces (frowning for bad grades, smiling for good ones).
